Time For A Change

It’s 2017 and it’s time for a change. Every year I always tell myself things are going to change, and they never do. After a horrible year personally and professionally, it’s going to stick this year. Instead of setting impossible goals for myself, i’m going to create obstacles that I want to overcome. Getting Finances on Track 2016 definitely wasn’t my year financially. I learned the hard way that you can’t always “just throw it on a credit card” when things happen unexpectedly. Sometimes you have to learn the hard way right? For 2017 I’m creating a realistic financial plan to help get  ...

Sole Patches – Wear Your Favorite Shoes Again!

Have you tossed away your favorite pair of heels because they make your feet hurt? I’ve been there! Thanks to being a member at BrandBacker I had the opportunity to pull out my favorite pair of heels thanks to the Sole Patches. Sole Patches allows you to wear all of your favorite shoes without being in any pain. When I saw this I had to check it out, because I have yet to find anything that really works with my feet. I have wider feet, so they tend to hurt pretty quickly and easily. These adhesive pads definitely have their work cut out for them. Getting Used to Adhesive Patches Previous  ...

Berkshire Plus Size Tights

When it comes to winter, Illinois can be unpredictable. But I still try to be as prepared as I can when heading out for holiday parties and events. One of the best ways for me is with my Berkshire Tights. I’ve reviewed these in the past and I had the opportunity to try out some new stuff from the plus size line. Let’s be real. Some brands claim to be one size fits all, but they’re not. I’ve never had trouble with the regular Berkshire line, but I was excited to try these since I figured they’d fit better. Three different products were sent: Berkshire Plus Size Textured Tights , The  ...

Rebecca Minkoff Unlined Saddle Handbag

I couldn’t help myself, I had to get a new handbag. I have a larger bag that’s really old and starting to get too worn out to use. I wanted to downsize a little bit and went with the Rebecca Minkoff Unlined Saddle handbag. I love Rebecca Minkoff handbags and I’ve been buying them for several years now. I can get a little crazy when a sale pop ups on Hautelook. I was going to buy this bag several months ago, but I didn’t have the $295 to spend on it at the time. But while I was online looking at the Nordstrom anniversary sale I noticed that the Unlined Saddle handbag, which I clearly  ...

Chantecaille Lip Chic – A First Take on Red Lips

I’ve never been one for trying red lip products. I would swatch and try some on, but nothing ever looked like it was a good fit. Not to mention that a good majority of red lipsticks are matte, and my lips get too drying for those types of lip formulas. While attending a beauty event at Neiman Marcus I stopped by the Chantecaille counter and saw some of their new products, including the Lip Chic in Red Juniper. I’ve reviewed the Lip Chic in the past and absolutely loved them so I knew I would like the formula. It was just a matter of whether or not this shade of red was going to look good  ...

Studio Gear Prime Objective Face Primer

There are many face primers on the market that sometimes it’s hard to find the one that’s going to work best for your skin. Having the right primer could mean to long-lasting makeup, no breakouts, and better looking skin. I recently tested out the Studio Gear Prime Objective Skin Perfecting Face Primer and I have to say I’m impressed. I’m currently going back and forth between the Benefit POREfessional and the Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer. Based on these two you can probably tell the type of primer that I’m looking for. While winter is just beginning here, during the  ...
