My Cruelty Free “Travel” Makeup Bag!

If you saw my InstaStories this past week, a) thank you for watching my nonsense! and b) youโ€™ll know that I went on a short road trip with my dad. It was just overnight, but I still over-packedโ€ฆespecially with the makeup. ๐Ÿ˜‰ To be fair, I did use almost everything, but itโ€™s a lot. Since I only took things that I love, I thought I would share the contents of my โ€œtravelโ€ makeup bag with you! Iโ€™m skipping skin care as thatโ€™s a whole post unto itself; weโ€™re just sticking to the makeup here.ย Like I said, thereโ€™s a lot so we best get to it! ๐Ÿ˜„ย (Links to reviews and related posts in pink.)

Cruelty Free Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations – Spring 2017

Itโ€™s the second most wonderful time of the year for those of us with massive Sephora addictions! ๐Ÿ˜ Thatโ€™s right! The Sephora VIB Sale is almost here!!! I thought I would go through some of my favorite cruelty free products available at Sephora to give you a few recommendations while considering what new goodies to pick up this go-round. Real quick, the details as I understand them are that the sale runs from April 18th through the 24th for VIB Rouge members and your discount will be 15% off of everything as many times as you choose to shop in that time frame! Similarly, VIB member will receive 15% off between April 19th and 24th, while Beauty Insiders will be getting 10% off from April 20th through April 23rd. If youโ€™re one of these lucky Sephora Insider members, you should receive a card in the mail as well as a code in your email that can be used over and over again during the above mentioned dates! There has also been some fantastic cruelty free news: Tashina from Logical Harmony has confirmed that Smashbox and Marc Jacobs Beauty (not the fragrances) have been added to her cruelty free list (Stila‘s back too)!!! Discounts and new brands and cruelty free goodness, oh my! ๐Ÿ˜œ Enough silliness, letโ€™s get to the recommendations (linked to reviews if I have one). ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cruelty Free Favorites – January 2017

Believe it or not, this January Favorites is not going to start with an โ€œI canโ€™t believe how fast the month wentโ€ kind of intro. It was a loooong ass month. I feel like New Yearโ€™s was months ago now. In fact, I canโ€™t remember what the hell I loved at the beginning of the month because it feels so long ago! But Iโ€™m gonna do my best. I actually donโ€™t have a lot of favorite beauty products for January because Iโ€™ve been trying a lot of the new things. It hasnโ€™t been all bad, I just donโ€™t feel theyโ€™ve had a fair test yet. So my list is not very long, but I have a few things to mention…plus another non-beauty item! ๐ŸŽ‰ And instead of dragging on further, Iโ€™m gettinโ€™ down to business. ๐Ÿ˜œ

Cruelty Free November Beauty Favorites & Brief Update


Sooooo. Long time no post, eh? I wish I could say that Iโ€™ve been trying, but I really havenโ€™t. I have had absolutely no motivation when it comes to the blog. But thereโ€™s nothing quite like talking about my favorite products of the month to help motivate me again! So at least for today, I have a new post!!! Whoo! ? As far as the rest of life, wellโ€ฆ. The President-Elect is still making horrible decisions and making me question the viability of being American, and beyond horrible news seems to be hitting some of my friends, but things are going well enough on my part so at least thereโ€™s that! ? Itโ€™s been a roller coaster of a month so Iโ€™m glad to see it go, but I do wish I could relive Thanksgiving. Itโ€™s been so long since my little family has had a Thanksgiving with everyone in relatively good health. Fortunately this year everyone was healthy enough to enjoy it and we all did! ? If youโ€™re curious, the โ€œweโ€ consists of just me, my Mom and my Dad. Basically the only family thatโ€™s ever been around me with any regularity and I love them dearly. If you remember, the past two Christmases have been delayed โ€“ last year until February! โ€“ due to health issues in the family so Iโ€™m hoping that this Christmas will be equally as enjoyableโ€ฆand on time! ? But now weโ€™re getting ahead of things and we have a lot of favorites to cover this month! So, on to my Cruelty Free November Favorites. ?

Sephora VIB Sale 2016 – Cruelty Free Options!

Ahhhhh!!! Itโ€™s that time of year again! Yup, Sephoraโ€™s annual VIB / VIB Rouge 20% Off Sale! If youโ€™re a Rouge member, you are probably aware that the sale just began for you (code โ€œ20ROUGEโ€)! ? For Rouge members, the sale runs from November 4-7, while VIB members get a go at the sale from November 11-14 (code โ€œ20VIBโ€). Given this always exciting event, I thought I would share some of my cruelty free recommendations with you today! So letโ€™s get started as this could become rather lengthy. ?

August Cruelty Free Favorites 2016

Ok. August is over and I donโ€™t know whether to feel slightly excited or rather sad. I love the summer months so much, but then thereโ€™s something kind of welcoming about autumn. So Iโ€™m torn between not wanting the warm, sunny weather to end – I hate the cold so so much! – and the new and exciting fall colors with enticing new beauty launches. But August is gone, so no use dwelling on that! Instead letโ€™s wander back through my Cruelty Free Beauty Favorites of the month!
