butter LONDON

It has been forever and a day since I’ve heard anything new from butter LONDON nail polish. Yes, they’ve been releasing new collections and shades but when a box of their newest Patent Shine 10x formula polishes landed on my doorstep, I knew that big things were happenin’.

Since the beginning of time, serious shoppers have been looking for deals. Myself included! Okay yeah, so I’m not a shopaholic and I can really go months without buying myself anything (mama is trying to get out of student loan debt) but when I do decided to open that wallet and pull out a card, you better believe I’ve got some kind of deal, discount or coupon. Paying full price for anything is just crazy these days – especially since the savings are literally at our fingertips.

Take for example ShopAtHome.com. You’ve heard of them, right? If you haven’t, girl…brace yourself because I’m about to rock your world.

OFRA Cosmetics Mina Liquid Lipstick Review & Giveaway

OFRA Mina Liquid Lipstick

I told you I’d be back with another post showcasing the glorious OFRA Cosmetics. I’ve been slowly making my way around some of those goodies that I got from the blogger meetup. And when I heard that my girl Mina was the inspiration behind the brand’s newest Liquid Lipstick, I just HAD to buy one. I mean, yes, I wanted to support my girl, but ohmigoodness, I was in love the first time I saw that color.

See what I’m sayin’? I can also understand how a shade like this may intimidate some people. At first glance, it appears to be a bit dark and vampy and fitting for the cooler seasons, but hey – don’t go around judging lippies at first glance, girl.

Paula’s Choice Skincare Review

Woohoo y’all! I am so excited to finally be blogging about this skincare brand because ever since I announced that I’d be test driving some of their products, many of you gals mentioned how much you LOVE Paula’s Choice. This is a sponsored post through PRIMP and I am so fortunate that I got to try a line of items that were specifically recommended to me by Paula’s Choice fabulous team of experts.

Paula's Choice products

I’ve been playing around with these products for quite some time and as with all skincare products, my opinions may vary compared to the opinions of others. I will say that like with all brands, you will likely find the best results by using an entire line-up of a brand’s products versus just a cleanser, treatment or moisturizer. Make sense? Firstly, let’s see what items were recommended for my acne-prone, hormonal skin that gets blazed by the Florida sun daily.
