YouTube MADE ME Buy It

makeupmess2I really love watching tutorials on YouTube. I’m subscribed to so many different Beauty Influencers channels, but my favorites definitely are: Desi Perkins, LustreLux, Laura Lee, Stephanie Nicole, Stephanie Lang, Makeup.Just.For.Fun, and Jaclyn Hill.

The Fragrance Foundation Awards 2017


I hope you have a WONDERFUL Memorial Day weekend!   I just got back from a week-long vacation with my husband to celebrate our anniversary.  It was so nice to be able to take time off of work and go spend it with my favorite person.  When I got back home I had a package waiting for me at the door.  I was so excited to open it up and see that it was the 5 fragrances being voted on for the “Consumer’s Choice Women’s” category.  This is considered by some, the “Oscars” of the beauty industry.  The Fragrance Foundation Awards are attended by over 800 celebrities, influencers and top executives from the world of fragrance.
