Selfie Queens and Beauty Bloggers You Will Love the LG G3 Smartphone! #LGG3Beauty

I am so excited to announce that I'm an official LG G3 Beauty Blogger. This has given me the opportunity to experience, and fall in love with, a new phone that I can share my thoughts on with you. As a die hard Apple gal this is an opportunity I would have never given myself the chance experience otherwise so thank you LG! I almost didn't attend the event as I was THAT sure there was no way I could be swooned away from my beloved iPhone. Who knew I could fall in love with an Android! Not only that, but I will also be offering you,

Give the Gift of Survival with Unicef Unbox and #unBOXpossibilities

The holiday season is one of the most commercialized times of the year. While we know the true spirit of the holiday isn't all about giving and receiving gifts it can become far to easy to get carried away. Personally I swore I wasn't going to spoil my kids as much this Christmas and I know I found myself swept up in the excitement of seeing the joy in their faces Christmas morning opening far more presents than they need. I WANTED to step back from the luxuries we are afforded throughout the year and think about how even the

My Daughter the Future Vlogger. Oh My!

I probably shouldn't be posting this but I had to share. This video is just too funny not to! Oh boy am I in trouble! My daughter films imaginary videos all day long for her imaginary YouTube channel "Cool Kids" (Don't steal the name! LOL) talking away to herself. I mean seriously talking away to herself all day everyday filming her daily routine, toy reviews, EVERYTHING. I didn't realize she was actually recording with my phone while I did her half assed Monster High Catty Noir makeup before school this morning. Hope you get a

I introduced you to an amazing contest that Almay is running in my post on becoming one of Almay's spokespeople for their campaign with the gorgeous Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson. They are giving away an incredible trip for two to New York City for makeovers! I wish I could enter but unfortunately it is open to US residents only.

Makeup Wars ~ What This Beauty Blogger Packs for Vacation

So I'm not really going on vacation. Oh how I WISH I were going on vacation. Even just for a weekend. It is just not in the cards right now, nor will it be for quite a long time. Given that in years past my hubby and I have gone on a few tropical winter getaway vacations, including our wedding, I am not unfamiliar with how I pack for these things, so were are going to exercise a bit of imagination here. Now when I go on vacation, and I mean a week long proper vacation, I don't really concern myself with packing light when it

Luxury Beauty Shopping at Harrod’s in the UK and Internationally Online

If you want a one stop shop for luxury and exclusive beauty brands then Harrods is the place. They carry brands like Burberry, Laura Mercier, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabbana, La Prairie, and many, many more. Being an online shopping fanatic I am not unfamiliar with browsing the Harrods website being tempted by the many beautiful high end products they offer. Being in Canada means that high end department store online shopping is not an option. Why Holt Renfrew doesn't offer online shopping is beyond

Gillette Wants to Know: Are Beards Killing the Kiss?

I had to share this hilarious video with you. I got such a kick out of this because it struck so close to home! OK scruff can be mighty hot...but do we really want to kiss it and have it rubbing all up on us. With my sensitive skin, beard burn is something I understand all too well. It's just not sexy! I also found the host to be pretty darn amusing. Gillette, a renowned shaving products company, decided to research this matter further and made a cute mini-documentary about it, entitled "Are We Killing the Kiss?" They

Keeping Warm This Winter and Distracting Myself from the Cold Outside

I hate getting bundled up for the winter. I'm the kind a person that throws on a coat and that is it. Get me into a warm car and that coat is off and the heat is turned down. My husband on the other hand will have his coat, toque, and mitts on and drive for an hour with the heat on full. Yuck! Here are some ways I've been keeping warm but not feeling stifled this winter: Ellena Snood in Dark Coral - I love how lightweight this infinity scarf is yet it keeps me warm. The bright pop of coral brings life to my face on dull, dreary

The Lilly Brush ~ A Guest Review by Adriana

Lilly Brush is known to save sweaters, but I recently used it to save my favorite pillowcase! This pillowcase is very special to me because it is completely handmade and embroidered. While studying indigenous cultures in Mexico, a good friend of mine decided to help out the people in the village she was working with by bringing their handmade goods to the States to sell – every cent made was then given back to the community from which the items came. The one item that caught my eye was this pillowcase. From what I was told, the
