The Triple Threat of Masks



If there's one thing Origins just seems to get, it's making targeted skincare products that get specific jobs done. They don't subscribe to the 'one product fits all' method of masking and have quite a variety to address individual skin concerns. For Christmas I received this trio of Origins masks from my lovely sister-in-law, Mary, and I've been playing around with them ever since. I picked them up whenever I thought there was something they could help with and I think I've finally nailed down how they work best for me and what they each really help with.

A Quarter-Life Crisis Skincare Fix From Origins



As much as beauty gurus are always telling you that the best weapon in the war against aging is prevention, there don't seem to really be any products on the market designed for ladies in their late twenties / early thirties. There are plenty of goodies for acne-prone teenage skin and products with a punch for more mature skin but what about the in-betweeners? How are we supposed to get a leg up on this anti-aging business if all the products out there are too harsh for our still somewhat youthful skin? At a time when our skin is changing and little lines that weren't there yesterday are starting to appear, what can we use to keep the panic under control? Well, Origins has a new serum to keep your quarter-life crisis in check and make the transition a bit easier.

Review + Giveaway | Sinful Rewards 11 by Cynthia Sax


Blurb
Bee Carter has been invited to one of Chicago's most glamorous charity balls. Attending this high-society event will be a dream come true, giving her the sense of belonging she's always craved and memories she could never duplicate.

But it will also test her relationship. Because her date won't be the man she believes she loves. Instead, she'll be arriving on the tuxedo-clad arm of his rival, a man who has never stopped wanting her, desiring her touch, her kisses, and her passion.

How much will Bee risk to make a dream come true? Will her newfound love withstand the temptation of another, a man willing to do anything to claim her?

April Ipsy Bag Reveal & Review


Seems like every month I'm late with my Ipsy bag review! That might have something to do with my receiving it half way through the month, not wanting to use anything until it's been photographed and my desire to give everything a thorough test run. Anyway, better late than never I guess? You know the drill...here's what I got and what I thought.

What I've Been Watching | March & April 2015



It's been an insanely long time since I got up on my soapbox and proclaimed my love for some TV shows. Usually I like to post a monthly edit of what I've been watching, whether it was online, on TV or on Netflix, but March and April were a bit hectic for me and so I've combined both months into one big (and very diverse) love fest.
