Pedicures are fun and relaxing.  Join me as I go get a pedicure.

The three questions about pedicures I always get:

  1. I’ve never had a pedicure.  Why would I want one?
  2. I can’t stand people messing with my feet.
  3. Why can’t I just do this myself.

The Seven Deadly Sins of Beauty (Tag)

7 Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag

1. GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

Most inexpensive would be my carmex.

Most expensive would be Obagi skincare.

2. WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with?

I hate, and love, eyebrow pencils.

3. GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?

Without a doubt my most delicious product is Tree Hut Coconut Lime lotion.  It smells AMAZING.  It’s just an all around great product.

4. SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?

I almost never do a morning routine.  I never forget sunscreen but Vitamin C or other -ides…I just almost never do.  I’m not a morning person.

5. PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?





6. LUST: What product do you have to have?

So many things but currently Kat Von D’s highlighting palette.

7. ENVY: What items would you most like to receive as a gift?

I would take any makeup product from perfume to lipstick to eye shadow.  I love it all.


Younique Liquid Foundation


It seems that all of the reviews I find online for Younique products are the people selling it.  Which makes sense.  Those people started selling them because they love them.

I thought I’d give Younique Liquid Foundation a try to see how it wears on mature skin.

It actually held up quite well.  I had a few problems but over all it works great.

Watch my video to hear the pros and cons and see pictures of how it wears throughout the day.

Briefly, here is the biggest con and my favorite pro:

Con:  Streaky and takes a long time to blend out.

Pro:  So easy to apply (except for taking a bit to blend.)

My skin looks flawless (except for one tiny part of my skin around my mouth).

This is #notanad.  I bought this product myself.
