Botanical Skincare Spotlight: Lotus Moon Tonic Minerals Facial Toner

Hello lovelies! Now that I’ve settled into Sin City, I have the mental clarity to crank out the bazillion product reviews and demos I’ve left sitting on the back burner.

#3Free Mani: Sinful Colors “Soul Mate”

Hey ladies! Short nails don’t care! I painted my nubbins with Sinful Colors “Soul Mate” this morning.

Get The Look: Pretty in Pink

Good morning! I’m sharing a late post of my Mother’s Day makeup. “Tweak” is such a pretty baby pink, and blended out nicely. The black eyeliner ended up being a bit too harsh for what I was going for, but hey — it’s just makeup!  There’s always another day. Eyes Mineral Fusion Smoothing Eye Primer…
