Fall Blog Sale

Sunday, October 26, 2014

Hello Friends!
If you saw my current makeup collection you might ask yourself, is Amanda still a beauty blogger? Does she even like makeup at all? What does she put on her face? Where did all her stuff go? I have downsized my collection so much that I really don't even need drawers for storage anymore. But this really has more to do with me eliminating what I don't need so I can make room for what I do as my purchases have not completely slowed down. I've really transitioned from someone who was obsessed with shadow and color to someone who's obsessed with skincare and my collection reflects this. So on that note I decided to put up some of my gently used or brand new products for my readers to hopefully enjoy.

Sephora Mini Haul Gone BAD

Thursday, October 2, 2014

Hi Everyone!
I feel like lately I have done really well with not over spending on things like clothes and beauty supplies and have been saving my money for a rainy day. But I do notice that when I go a certain amount of time on this pattern, I get in a mood where I need to impulse purchase. So I was on a lunch break from work and I decided to pop in a Sephora to pick up a few things I had been contemplating for a while. Every product I bought I had done previous research on either through referrals or reviews on sephora.com so I thought for sure these were good buys, but as far as my first impression goes I will not be repurchasing the following items.

OOTD: #1

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Southern California weather continues to fade into hot and cooler temperatures, and with that I'm finding I have no idea what style I want to stick with. On the one hand I am totally ready for scarves and boots, but on the other it was 90 degrees today and had I not been scheduled to work I would have gone swimming. As far as my wardrobe is concerned I have found my happy medium with mixing light weight clothing in fall shades that are kinda drapey so they don't cling to my body and make me sweat. This way I get the feel of fall while being realistic. I found myself wearing this outfit on multiple occasions and not only feeling cooled off, but stylish at the same time.

Also, literally every item I am wearing is no longer available (besides the phone case) either because I bought it forever ago, or because it recently sold out. So I have linked similar items below if you want to shop this style.

Review: Lush, Ro's Argan

Friday, August 29, 2014

Though my attitude on this is subject to change, for the most part I don't really enjoy putting moisturizer on. I think this has everything to do with me not liking the sticky feeling that comes with most of them and though some products don't have that finish and are great, I am glad that I discovered Ro's Argan by Lush because this almost eliminates that issue completely. Ro's Argan is a body conditioner that you apply in the shower that does exactly what a hair conditioner does, but for your skin.

Haircare Haul/What is a Paraben?

Monday, August 25, 2014

Hello beautiful readers!
I have been trying to think of the last time I purchased some hair products and I knew it had been a while because I really couldn't remember. I have this bad habit of getting over a product before I finish the bottle so I replace it and put the half/almost empty bottles under my sink and forget about them. Lately I've been dipping into that collection and using up some of my old stuff and I was thinking about how I really hadn't done any research on what was new.
