Physician’s Formula Powder Palette review and giveaway!

Y’all know how much I adore bronzed cheeks..especially in the summer time. For someone who doesn’t wear much on her cheeks, this gorgeous little bronzer works perfectly for me!

You ARE familiar with Physician’s Formula, right? They are one of the few natural/organic drugstore brands in the market. With my acne prone skin acting the way it does, I’ve been taking the paraben-free route lately and my skin does not flare up as much as it normally would. Hollaaa!

You can snag this kid for $13.99 at your favorite drugstore. The mineral glow pearls come in 4 different shades: Translucent Pearl, Beige Pearl, Light Bronze Pearl, Bronze Pearl.

…oh wait, what’s that?

Pshht, y’all know how I feel about beauty rules. I break them. My brown skinned self rocked it. And rocked it well, I might add.

 And for quick touch-ups, the palette has a darling little mirror and brush at the bottom.

I can dig it. 

I know a lot of you gals have been wanting to take baby steps into the natural skincare route but don’t want to spend a lot of money on it.

Giveaway Winner! Lancôme’s Définicils Precious Cells mascara

In a perfect world, I would be able to give mascaras to every lady who wanted one. I’d travel from New Orleans to New Zealand. We would talk about beauty customs, products and trends and then I’d gift them a mascara and a hug.

Who knows WHAT can happen, uh? selected our two winners. Congrats to

Ana in Spain


Leila in Wisconsin

Over 200 of you entered that giveaway and while I’d love to give mascaras to you all, only two can win this time. But because I love y’all so much, I’ll be giving some more goodies away this summer. Muah!

Clumps’ Hiatus 2010

Well, my loves…the time as come for me to bid farewell. I’m taking a bit of a break from Clumps. No no no, it’s not anything you’ve done, but sometimes I can get a wee bit overwhelmed. But from editing videos, to drafting posts, writing freelance pieces, taking photos, responding to emails and staying connected on Facebook and Twitter, I can honestly say that I enjoy it all. If it weren’t for you all’s support, Clumps wouldn’t exist. Your love and encouragement has meant the world to me. Did I ever tell you that Clumps is my passion? Seriously. It combines ALL of my loves; beauty, writing, helping others, new media, photography, web design, video production, entrepreneurship and traveling. Funny how one minute I’m a 23-year old trying to find my way in life and the next thing I know, I’m starting a blog with a funny title that has turned into a business. Your passion may be right in front of you, fam. It was for me.

This hiatus won’t be easy. I’m a bit “obsessed” with Clumps. But I’m looking forward to doing things I never have the time to do. Like read, work on the scrapbook for my goddaughter, go bike riding,  master some yoga stances, make phone calls (instead of text, HA!) and think of ways to make Clumps better. I’m learning that the best way to keep your passion a “passion” is to prevent it from becoming like work. To keep it enjoyable, sometimes you have to take a break.

I’ll be checking my email thirty-two times once day. If you need me…I’m there!

Oh! And Ying is the winner from the Snubbr giveaway. Speaking of giveaways, I’ve got a TON coming up for when I return. Excited yet?

See ya when I see ya!
