Review | Zim's Max Crack Creme Creamy Daytime Formula

Like many of you I happen to get dry skin during the fall and winter. My hands can often feel rough to the touch, and don't even get me started on my elbows and feet. While I can get away with being a little careless with moisturizing my skin during the summer, I definitely can't neglect my skin when the air is dry and cold. Over a year ago I reviewed the Zim's Advanced Crack Creme and I referred to it as "a miracle in a tube," so when I was asked if I wanted to give their Creamy Daytime Formula a try I just couldn't say no. Based on my previous experience I knew going in that I was going to enjoy this product, but will this become my go-to winter lotion? And how does it compare to the Advanced Crack Creme?

Outtakes #3 | Thanksgiving Edition

Happy Thanksgiving! What better way to say thank you for your support than to show you all the wacky shots that sadly didn't make the cut- until now. Yes, the outtakes are back for round three and this time there's a whole lot of weird faces, dogs not cooperating, and awkward outfit of the day poses. Let me tell you, some bloggers may want you to think that they're incredibly photogenic and graced with the perfect poses but that's certainly not the case for me. So now that we have all the introductory stuff out of the way, let's move on to the outtakes!

Outfit of the Day | Blush and Rose featuring JORD

We're finally getting some cooler weather in San Diego, so I felt like was finally time to start using one of my favorite blazers in my closet. This blush colored blazer was a piece that I picked up last summer but sadly has barely been worn due to our hot weather. Another rosy item that has been getting some love is my rose gold watch from JORD. In case you're not familiar with the brand, JORD is a contemporary watch company that creates unique and sustainable watches made out of wood. When I first laid eyes on the Sidney series watch, I knew it was for me. Just like myself there's elements in the watch that are quite masculine inspired such as the thick band, but then you have the delicate rose gold to provide a nice contrast. In this post you're going to see how I styled my JORD watch to fit with my minimal tomboy style.

$1 Neutral Palette

$1 Neutral Palette
Not too long ago I wasn't able to afford the Marc Jacobs, Burberry, and Hourglass makeup because like many of you I was a student that had to worry about other expenses. There were even some drugstore brands that I found a little expensive such as Sonia Kashuk and Physicians Formula. I would occasionally splurge on a MAC item here and there, but the majority of my makeup collection were drugstore items. During a recent trip to the Dollar Tree, I stumbled upon two neutral palettes that I decided to test out. Will any of these two be worth a trip to your nearest dollar store? There's only one way to find out.

November 2015 Ipsy Bag Opening

All good things must come to an end and that's the way I feel about my Ipsy subscription. While I've enjoyed the bags a lot throughout the time I've been subscribed, I just want to explore other subscription services. I'm still not sure which service I'm going to end up trying out, but I'm leaning towards Birchbox or Petit Vour. Before I cancel my Ipsy bag I decided to go all out and order the best item with all the points that I accumulated. When I say it's good, I really mean it. This month's bag was also quite good, but not as good as the item I got with my points.

My Menstrual Cup Experience

One of my most requested videos on both of my YouTube channels was a video all about menstrual cups. Yes, menstrual cups. Since speaking about my love for menstrual cups on my August Favorites I've been getting requests on Snapchat, Instagram, and YouTube. In this long-awaited video I'm going to be talking about why I decided to ditch both pads and tampons, as well as talk about my personal experience with menstrual cups. I'm also going to explain how to choose the right menstrual cup for you and show you how truly easy it is to use. Hopefully this video will help you decide whether to give menstrual cups a try, or if you should just stick with your prefered method.

The Surprising $1.50 Mascara

I'm guessing you all know by now that my search for the best volumizing mascara is far from over. I've tried a variety of volumizing formulas from drugstore to high-end brands, but this mascara is easily the cheapest volumizing mascara that I've ever come across. Don't let the $1.50 price tag fool you, this mascara can easily compete with the drugstore giants. And if you happen to struggle with keeping your lashes curled all day, then this mascara might work very well for you. Now let me introduce you to the cheapest and most adorable volumizing mascara out there.

How To Buy Makeup On Poshmark and Haul

How To Buy Makeup On Poshmark and Haul
It's no secret that I love makeup, but what I love more is saving money. Thankfully Poshmark has my back now that sellers can list various makeup products. You can find an incredible array of makeup products from brushes to highlighters, and there's literally every brand you can think of. I was personally on the hunt for luxury products from brands such as Burberry, Marc Jacobs, and Charlotte Tilbury. I've managed to save $10-$20 off products by simply shopping on Poshmark so in this video I'm going to share what I've purchased, as well as share some of my tips so you can start saving on makeup as well.

Review | NON.U Elegant Makings She Turns Me On Lipliner Pen

NON.U Elegant Makings She Turns Me On Lipliner Pen Review
Once upon a time I said that "I couldn't be bothered" with lip liners, which is a little hard to believe now but when I filmed the Lip Product Addict Tag I was not a big fan of lip liners. Well it took about a year for me to get hooked on lip liners and nowadays I own way too many of them. Here's why I changed my mind: Lip liners make ridiculously easy to achieve nice and defined lips, and they also help with the longevity of a lip product. I've tested out various affordable lip liners from the drugstore, and most recently I gave the NON.U. Elegant Makings She Turns Me On Lipliner Pen from Born Pretty a shot. These $2.29 lip liners claim to be waterproof and long wearing, but do they live up to those claims?

October 2015 Favorites

I still can't wrap my head around the fact that in 2 months the year will be over. October was not the most exciting month for me, but at least it lead to some awesome beauty discoveries. I've been gushing over the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes since I picked up two on Poshmark and you'll get to hear more about them once again. This month I was reaching for my high-end makeup more than any other month this year, which is a good thing considering that I used to have this weird fear of ruining my high-end makeup (I told you it was weird). Apart from the plethora of makeup hits, I also have some disappointing products to share with you in this video. October was not a good skin or hair month at all.

Believe it or not, the holidays are on their way. It's time to start making lists so you can get your Christmas shopping done in a breeze. If you're anything like me, you like taking care of all Christmas shopping before the holiday madness. There's honestly nothing worse than packed malls, picked over displays, and dealing with all the holiday stress. I personally really enjoy picking gifts for my loved ones, and I especially enjoy shopping for my dogs. My family has always been amazing at including our dogs in our holiday festivities, and this year we have a new addition to the family which should make things even more fun for us. This year I decided to make a stocking for each of our dogs so we can put some toys and their favorite PEDIGREE® snacks in there. In this blog post I'm going to be showing you some gift ideas for any sized dog in your family.
