Ulta-mate Experience

This past weekend I braved Carmageddon to head north.  On the way back I literally said to myself, “I deserve an award for surviving that.”  I decided to track down the closest Ulta instead. Walking in I was surprised.  I really don’t browse the site at all, I’ve only ever ordered twice.  The first was […]

Havok is a custom blended shadow I specially requested for my giveaway this month.  Today is the five year anniversary of my becoming vegan.  I […]

Wonderstruck

I keep putting off swatching my new Aromaleigh goodies.  Part of me thinks that once I do, that’s it, that’s the end.  I pulled out my Wonderstruck sample set today for something new to wear and sitting at my desk I broke them down into possible trios.  There were so many possibilities, this collection is […]
