Monthly Beauty Favorites | September 2014

For me, September began with some awful skin. I was breaking out all over my face and my skin just looked horrible. I decided to go back to some old favorites which I had stopped using (mostly due to sheer laziness). The Clarisonic Mia Skin Cleansing Brush (which I somehow forgot to include in the picture) is something that has been hyped from here to high heaven, but I'm here to tell you that all of it is true.

Cris Reads | Whatever It Takes by Dixie Lee Brown


Assassin Alex Morgan will do anything to save an innocent life—especially if it means rescuing a child from a hell like the one she endured.

But going undercover as husband and wife, with none other than the disarmingly sexy Detective Nate Sanders, may be a little more togetherness than she can handle. She's used to working alone, and no man is going to change that—not even a man who makes her heart pound and her defenses crumble with just a touch

Cris Reviews | Freeman Charcoal Mask and Peppermint & Plum Foot Scrub

A month or so ago, I picked up a few Freeman products at Rite Aid for $4.29 a piece. They intrigued me. I don't think I've used anything from Freeman since I was...13 or so, but the descriptions sounded up my street.

Fall Style Staples: The Printed Pants


When it comes to Fall fashion, or dressing in general really, I like to try and keep things as effortless as possible. I'm the kind of person who is usually running late (mostly because I love to sleep) and being able to just toss a few basics together in the mornings makes things so much simpler. That said, I don't like to look basic.

Cleaning Your Makeup Brushes


One of the most hated aspects of many a beauty routine is cleaning makeup brushes. That said, it's also one of the most important. Think about the residual makeup that builds up on your brushes. Would you want to keep putting that on your face, day after day? Hell no!

The Ultimate Brow Product

The road to loving my brows has not been an easy one. There were those awful years when I over-plucked to try and balance out my brows and improve their shape.When I learned the beauty of a fuller brow, there were the days where I had to look like a yetti so that I would give them a chance to fill in before getting them threaded. And then there was that moment of epiphany when I realized that girls with amazing brows aren't just born with them, they cultivate them.

Etsy Love | Frostbeard Studio



While trolling Etsy, as one usually does, I had the idea that I wanted to highlight some interesting Etsy shops I've come across in my random perusing of the site. Sometimes I stumble across an item, fall in love, check out the seller's store, and just become overwhelmed by the awesomeness. In such instances, I'd like to share my finds with you all so you can reap the benefits of my many hours spent window shopping.

Portuguese Drugstore Beauty Haul & Review

A few weeks ago my mom came back from a month-long trip to Portugal to visit family. When she asked me what I wanted her to bring me back, I quickly did a bit of research and made a list of supermarket beauty items that I thought she'd easily be able to find. Let me just tell you, it was a bit hard to contain the squeals when she came back with a couple of bags filled with the things on my list.

Cris Reviews | Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Nail Enamel

There seem to be several products out there right now that promise a gel manicure-like finish without the hassle of using a UV light. When I found the Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Nail Enamel at Target for just $5 each (which is about $3 less than other places) I knew I had to give it a try.
