It feels like everyone has been talking pumpkin this, pumpkin that for weeks now and I for one couldn’t be more in to it. I think pumpkin season is one of the best times of the year and I love eating all the different pumpkin treats! But pumpkin isn’t just good in your latte, it also has great benefits for your skin! Pumpkins have antioxidants, vitamins, and zinc which makes it heavenly for skin! If you’re interested in adding pumpkin to your skincare routine, doing a face mask is a great start. There’s a good pumpkin enzyme mask from Peter Thomas Roth as well as one from June Jacobs but nothing beats making your own! Keep reading to see one of my favorite quick and easy DIY pumpkin face mask recipes (perfect for all those leftover Halloween pumpkins laying around).
Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Once mixed, apply a thin layer evenly all over your face (avoiding your eye area) and leave on your face for about 15-20 minutes. Thoroughly rinse off the mask with warm water to unveil smoother, brighter, and firmer skin!
In addition to the awesome benefits in pumpkins, the honey locks in must needed moisture and prevents breakouts with it’s antibacterial magic. Along with this, the egg yolk tightens the skin while the apple cider/cranberry juice are perfect for oily skin!
Not into DIY? Here are a few pumpkin face masks you can purchase to get the skincare benefits of pumpkin:
This is not a drill – The Holiday Shopping Sale at Sephora is BACK! Sephora is doing their VIB sale right in time for the holiday shopping season. If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably been holding items in your shopping baskets for months waiting on this sale lol! For those lucky enough to be a VIB rouge member you can start shopping the sale today in stores and online until 11/9 with the code ROUGE20. VIB members can start shopping the sale 11/13 with the code VIB20. Sephora rarely does sales and cosmetics in general hardly go on sale so now is really the best time to shop for holiday gifts as well as all the items you want for yourself but don’t want to break the bank on. Since I’m a VIB member my plan is to (more…)
There are all sorts of features that women want to stand out on their face or body. Some want people to be drawn to their eyes, while others are proud of their hair. Killer cheekbones are a must for some women, but they often have no idea how to get them. I love a pair of high and sharp cheekbones, just as long as it’s not because the girl is ridiculously thin! If you want to make your own cheeks stand out, I’ve got some great tips to highlight them. There are several solutions you can choose, from using blush all the way up to cosmetic surgery. (more…)
If there is one thing that I’m kinda insecure about when it comes to my look it’s my booties. And by booties I mean my ankle boots, not my Kim K hump lol! Once Fall hits it seems like every girl I see magically has their ankle boot game on fleek. Despite shopping every season and often asking girls were they got their boots from, I never seem to find the same amazing ankle boots I see on other people. This year I did a little research and online shopping to help me step my boot game up (pun intended). I found several that are super cute and even a few on sale (praise Him!!). My favorite one I found is this black geometric chunky heel pair. I love the way they look but they are definitely not in the budget for this year. Another one of my favorite booties I found for everyday use are these from Miista Kendall. This swede fringe ankle boot from Joie Lauren and this one from Sam Edelman are cute takes on the fringe trend. Lastly, my favorite budget find are these brown booties from Forever21.

Recently, I was sent Proganix’s Quench line for consideration and at first, I was a little skeptical to try it. You can’t blame me though, I love my hair and I don’t want to ruin it with a bad hair day so I’m always nervous about trying new products! Amid all the nerves and excitement over trying a new product, I decided to give it a go and I’m actually happy I did! Keep reading to hear my experience and thoughts with this product!

They are made with all organic ingredients, not tested on animals, and leaves your hair feeling silky smooth, shiny, and weightless.

My favorite part of Fall is when the weather is cool enough to wear Fall clothes but warm enough that you can skip the jacket. I’ve been wanting to wear a button front skirt for months, but couldn’t decide on the perfect one until a recent shopping trip to Urban Outfitters. Their button front skirt game was super STRONG so I had a ton of different options to choose from. I ended up getting the BDG Twill Button Front A-Line Skirt in the shade mustard.
The holidays are just around the corner, which means engagement season is too! If you’re hoping that he “puts a ring on it”, now is the time to start prepping. Once you are newly engaged you’re gonna be eager to show everyone that first “selfie” of your new engagement ring! While the ring takes center stage on your hand, with its pristine band and glistening diamond; presenting your ring to others for the first time requires the whole hand to be on point! Keep reading for some tips on how to present your ring in the best light.
If I had to choose one thing that defines beauty, it’s the eyes. They’re the most intimate and intriguing part of our features, and there are lots of ways to make an impact. You can create dark, alluring eyes to give yourself a hint of mystery. Or you can go for the traditional feline look, with wide, beautiful eyes. There are so many options here, but one thing’s for sure. It’s the most important part of your makeup routine!
Don’t worry about the color of your eyes. No matter what color you are blessed with, you can make them work. Use that natural color and make it work for you! If they’re deep and blue, capture that, and maximize it! If they’re dark brown or green, use it to create a sultry look. It’s the eyes that really capture people’s attention. In this post, I’ll show you the best tricks for making the most of your eyes.
I’m not going to lie, lately I’ve been getting more into wearing natural looking false lashes (I blame the Kardashians for making me covet whatever brand they wear). Between falsies, eyelash extensions, and really good mascara — there are millions of ways to fake long luscious lashes. But nothing beats having real long full lashes. No matter how great I get at applying false lashes, I’ll never be ok with letting my real lashes get in bad shape. Even if you weren’t born with long lashes naturally, there are things you can do to help your lashes grow to their fullest potential.
