My Birthday Wishlist 2015

To be realistic, for me, turning 29 is just another reminder that I’m getting older and to be honest, with two toddlers growing up so fast, the money I have left over in a month I splurge on myself.

When I say excited I don’t…

Stila Makeup Haul

So it’s been almost three weeks since I last posted and it feels like a lifetime. With real life getting in the way, there are just not enough hours in day to insatiate my passion. I’ve missed blogging so much I’m not going to rant on incessantly so I’ll get right on to it.
