15 Minute Everyday Makeup Routine + Check Back In

Whether it's to work, school or running errands, this is the default look I go for on the daily. I used to wear makeup everyday to cover up my excessive acne but now that it has currently calmed down a bit --- check out my skincare video to see how I did it, no tricks or sales pitches just pure esthetician school education driven results --- I STILL like to put a little something something on my face to jazz it up a bit. 

I also saw Samantha Ravndahl. post a 15 minute makeup routine. Sam, is it cool if I call you Sam? has been one of my fav YTers for years because of how REAL she is ... If you haven't watched her before YOU NEED TO. She is super rad and I wish we were friends. Seriously you need to go watch her take on this 15 minute challenge right after this!

It is Not too Late to send out your Holiday Cards !!!

* I was provided a store credit to try out this site. Links in this post are affiliate links. 

Forgot to send out your Christmas cards

It’s OK. It is not too late! 

Grab a family photo ( even a goofy one) from this year and upload it to the Minted website. They offer hundreds of templates that are quick to ‘try on’ your special photo. If that seems too easy ( you over achiever ) you can customize the font, design placement, and colors. What I did was use the template the way it was but added our names to the bottom to give it what I felt was a reasonable amount of personal touch. The design I chose, Wonderfully Merry Holiday Photo Cards - Version 1

June 2018 Ipsy Glambag + GIVEAWAY

Whoa ! I can't believe it is not only June but half way through it already. We are half way through the year too. What goals have you accomplished so far this year? and what is a goal you are setting for the second half of 2018? 

As for me, I am going to continue to focus on my health and staying active. I would like to be a bit more organized when it comes to a filming schedule. That way I can make more video like these ...

BED HEAD Curlipops Spiral Styling Iron Review

WHOA we are rolling it all the way back to the beginning of SMP with this one.
One of my very first videos on YouTube was a demo and review of the Tigi by Bed Head Rock N Roller curling wand. Young and awkward on camera. I demoed the tool with my mediocre hair styling skills for the world to see. It is now my most watched video !

To be honest, my hair styling skills have not improved any since then but regardless when I came across this Spiral wand in the Ulta Holiday catalog, I had to try it. For old times sake of course. This sat in my closet still in the package for a few months. Not for any particular reason other than I wanted to make sure I gave this video the dedication it deserves.

Another truth. I do not curl my hair too often. I would like to. But it is quite time consuming. I have tried other curling devises such as the Conair Infinity Curl Secret. Which creates beautiful tight Shirley Temple like curls. However, the process of it bringing the hair into the chamber, waiting and releasing for some reason takes me longer than using a wand. I am also lazy and like to take too large of sections with my wands. With the Curl Secret you can't do that. 
On a day to day basis I try my best to let my hair air dry. Then when I grow impatient I whip out my Infiniti Pro by Conair 3Q Brushless Motor Dryer to finish the job and smooth things out. This is another older post but is still very close to my current routine. Actually now that I think about it I did film a How to Tame Frizz . My Hair Care & Style Routine not too long ago.

As for the Curlipops Spiral wand ... Let's watch and find out what kind of curls ( or if they are curls at all ) this tool will provide.
