what are you currently loving?

B says, “Hmm, I don’t have a favorite. I try to stick away from sweet smelling/floral-type fragrances. I’m more of a woodsy/earthy fragrance lover so LUSH’s Karma is definitely up my alley.”

See you next week!

Not because I’m running for President. The White House so isn’t ready for me. *flips hair* 8)

No no no, darlings. It’s not that. It’s Target Beauty’s Biggest Fan contest. I messed around and entered it. Can you believe that? I’m a low key kind of gal and very rarely do contests that require begging people to vote for you. But who knows! I just may win. 20 selected entries will be selected to proceed to the next stage. And from there, FOUR will win a $500 gift card to Target. If I win, a percentage of my winnings will go to the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida. So what do ya say?

You can vote for me once a day until May 17th. Tell your friends, family, dogs and cats. Let’s get Clumps of Mascara to the White Hou–errr, next round. Hit the image below to vote. Thanks for the support!

An Open Letter from Godbaby Clumps

Guess who turned a year old the day before Valentine’s Day?

You guessed me? Sophie Simone? Alright!

You’re so smart. The other day Godmommy Clumps let me borrow her MacBook. And without her knowing I managed to prop her camera up and have a little photoshoot. What can I say? After watching her do it so many times, I wanted to try it myself.

Around Orlando: Chevy Valentine’s Day Sugar Rush

Your favorite beauty blogger has a massive sweet tooth. I mean, I LIVE for delicious sweets and like to treat myself as often as I can. Last week I was invited to participate in a Chevy Valentine’s Day Sugar Rush event.

I’m sorry…what? I get to ride around in a brand new Chevy Cruze while using OnStar to go from various cookie, candy and ice cream shops in Orlando? Like I really had to think twice about attending. I had a car full of great company and a list of spots to head to and I was ready to go! Guess where we went?
