Sexy, Sexy Summer

I've been talking about this for ages and finally filmed it. I love celeb gossip, and The Daily Mail is pretty much my religion. Luckily, they love to post about two of my favorite babes, Demi Mawby and Emily Ratajkowski. This is a sexy but not too "done" look I see them wearing all the time, so here it is recreated for you. 💙

Oooh, girl time to smell like the OCEAN!!


I LOVE beach scents in the Summer, but I am NOT fond of smelling like sunscreen. These are my favorite perfumes to carry you through the hot weather smelling like a fresh seaside breeze. (And not the Jersey Shore kind, ya feel me?)




Now go out there and smell like you've just come back from the Hamptons.♥

Messy, Glossy Eyes

Switching back to makeup in my newest video. I haven't done a tutorial in ages! This is the style of makeup I wore to parties and clubs in the late 90's/early 2k and I'm SO excited it's back on trend! Black is great, but this also works well with a cranberry or navy smokey eye. Enjoy!



If you have a recommendation of what you'd like to see next, please let me know. ♥

*NEW* Moonalisa Summer 2018 Goodies!

The Summer 2018 collection from Moonalisa was released in April, and my order arrived today! If you're unfamiliar with the brand, don't worry - they have a total cult following, and seasonal release dates instead of keeping a general catalog on hand makes it difficult to start trying the products - but they are worth it!

I suggest signing up for the newsletter so you know when the next release will fall. There are also Potion Lotions (a great lightweight moisturizer) and Milk Bath left. The Summer 2018 scent catalog is here for your convenience. From what I can tell, there are certain scents that are seasonal, and others that can show up year-round, which also makes it hard to choose! I've just gone with a handful of favorites that I order whenever they show up.

This time around one of my very favorites, Duchess of Willowdale was available! You may have seen me mention this product on Instagram - I had it in the Ultra Whip from two winters ago, which was a much lighter format. This time I ordered the Crazy for Cocoa Cream because I felt the mild cocoa scent would complement Duchess of Willowdale, and it does!














                                                   






Duchess of Willowdale is described as "reminiscent of old Victorian parlors: honey, Amber, and pipe tobacco, but with added notes of deep, dark, rich chocolates." It is a delicious gourmand scent that definitely works year-round. I wish Moonalisa had released the Ultra Whips this past winter, but alas. No such luck. The Cocoa Cream is decadently rich, however, and feels ultra moisturizing - something I really need in summer as my skin dries out with this Las Vegas sun!

Included was also a sample of a new? product that I hope will be forthcoming - The Jello Blob Jelly Soap. Whatttt? My last experience with bathtub "gelly" products didn't go over so well, but this stuff looks... well, it looks kinda bomb.


                                                                                                                                                                                                         









I have it in the scent "Jello Shots" which is apropos and smells exactly like it sounds. A kind of cherry/fruit punch hybrid that makes me appreciate the DO NOT EAT warning on the label, lol. I'm not sure if this scent is the only one that they have made for this product, but regardless, I am super eager to try it out, and I hope it works well, because I'd love to buy more when they are released! (Of course, that's assuming this product will be for release, which I do not know, as I did not reach out to Moonalisa for confirmation. If it was just a fun bonus then, I am SO glad I ordered in this round!)


So there you have my (tiny) Moonalisa haul. One of these days I will pick up one of her perfume oils or sprays, but there are so many great product choices, it's pretty hard to narrow down the list! Some of my recommendations include:

  • Potion Lotion
  • 4in1 Shower
  • Argan Oil Hair Rescue
  • Ultra Whip (when offered)
If you decide to snatch up a Potion Lotion or Milk Bath before they're gone, some of my favorite scents are:
  • Duchess of Willowdale
  • Pineapple Express
  • Blue Milk
Just remember that not every scent is available in every format. Now I'm going to go lather up with a jello shot, and then slather myself in chocolate-y goodness. Toodles!

Video Review - Sephora Favorites DELUXE Perfume Sampler

This was supposed to be filmed over a week ago, and my greatest apologies for the delay, but if I had filmed it back then, I wouldn't have discovered the little tiny bit of tea I have for you regarding one of the scents in this box - check out the video for all the details!
