A Growing Addiction
Product Review: glow Vitamin Bubbles
Friday, July 11, 2014

I am on a real quest to change my body the natural way. In addition to wanting nicer nails I am on a mission to grow my hair as well. I want luxurious Kim Kardashian locks and I don't want to deal with the hassle of extensions on a daily basis. I started using Biotin pills, but the results are so slow going. I had been taking the pills for two months and saw almost no difference in my hair quality. I was pretty disappointed. After voicing my displeasure with the progress when using Biotin I received a package in the mail that looked really promising.glow by Vitamin Bubbles - $3.89 one tubeThese are not your average vitamins, glow by Vitamin Bubbles are the newest and most effective way ...

Product Review: Probelle Touch N' Grow Duo
Thursday, July 10, 2014

As a blogger and makeup artist my hands are my tools, and needless to say I'm constantly abusing them. They were not fabulous to begin with. My nails are so brittle they peel, I never understood why. My mom has gorgeous long thick nails, guess the gene skipped me. Normally I hide my horrible nails under acrylic tips and gel manicures however once I remove them my nails are even worse than before. It's a horrible cycle. I have tried every product I have come across to strengthen my nails and I have varying degrees of success. I am always excited to try new nail products in the hopes of having gorgeous long healthy nails. A couple of weeks ago Probelle Touch N' Grow Duo landed in my ...

Product Review: ScarAway Products
Thursday, June 26, 2014

Scars are a part of life and mostly I could care less about them. They give me character but there are two scars that I have that bring back some painful memories. Those are the ones I want gone, especially this one:It's a deep gash just under my thumb. I am sorry but I will not explain what happened to give me this scar just know that I want it out of my life. I was thankful to receive samples of two products from ScarAway:ScarAway - Long Sheets $29.99 and Daily Discs $29.99I don't have a scar long enough for the silicone sheets, but my husband does have a major scar on his stomach from surgery to remove a tumor from his stomach lining. He has graciously offered to test the scar sheets as ...

Product Review: Skindinavia The Makeup Primer Spray
Thursday, June 26, 2014

As a makeup artist I rarely use primers on my clients unless absolutely necessary to me primer is an added step that is not necessary,  Until I met the primer of my dreams:4oz for $35 or 8oz for $49  A few weeks ago I received a press sample of Skindinavia Makeup Primer Spray. I have been on the fence about sharing how good this product is. Honestly if I am the only artist that you know that gives you a flawless makeup wouldn't that give me an edge? It was a moot point because I am always sharing so I could not leave you chicas in the dark about this amazing product. Skindinavia is very famous for their finishing sprays, (they currently carry three) it was only natural they would ...
