All furniture was re-purposed from my sister’s bedroom and the chair was part of our dining room set many years ago. I’d love to have the Ikea type desk and drawers with a Hollywood mirror and plush chair but it’s not something I want to spend my money on right now. Maybe one day… This is the desk where I do my makeup and…

DIY Blackhead Pore Peel Mask – To peel or not to peel?

Hiya bellas, I’ve finally taken pics of my beauty room and makeup storage which I’ll be sharing with you tomorrow. Today I’m sharing a strange mask that you’ve already probably heard of or seen before. Now the ones on social media are both DIY and actual products you can purchase from various companies.

I saw people whose skin had allergic reactions to…

Gerard Cosmetics Naughty & Nice Review & Swatches

Hiya bellas, I ordered the Gerard Cosmetics Naughty & Nice set while they were having their holiday bundles. I only received a few items but golly, I’ve loved the items I had from the brand before but these new ones are on a whole ‘nother level. I’ve been eyeing these for a while so I just couldn’t resist. The set I bought contained a mini Slay All Day Setting Spray, a Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipstick and a Metal-Matte Liquid Lipstick. I’m all about the matte lip and after trying the ColourPop Ultra Metallics, I wanted to compare it as well as…
