Spring into Style

Spring is here! Hey beauties! Long time no talk, right? I know! It’s been a minute since my last blog post, but I am back! I’ve switched my blog back over to WordPress from SquareSpace and I am ready to dive back into blogging! So, to show my appreciation to you all I’m kicking off this spring with a giveaway! But first, let me give you some styling tips! 

Some people may not see a watch as a necessary accessory, depending on your everyday activities, but I sure do! As a makeup artist, a watch is so important to me! I don’t always have access to my phone so being able to keep the time on a watch while I have a client is the next best thing. Another great thing that I love about watches is of course the variety of colors and styles that are available! Personally, I like more neutral colors so I know it will match whatever color I’m wearing that day.

So why are we talking watches and not makeup? Good question! Well first off, I  plan on incorporating style and fashion posts into my blog as well so be on the look out for that! Second, I am hosting a giveaway with JORD Watches! JORD watches are made of all wood which give them a beautiful and natural finish. They also come in MANY different styles and colors. Also, they make watches for both men and women!

See, y’all are getting the hook up because one lucky winner will receive $100 off their purchase of a JORD watch! But that’s not it! Everyone that enters will receive a code for $25 off their purchase at the end of the giveaway! Sounds good right? I told y’all I was hooking you up! So what are you waiting for? Get to entering! Just click here and fill out the information. It’s that simple! Good luck!

Stay pretty!

Patchology Review: SmartMud Mask + PoshPeel

Patchology is one of the best in the game when it comes to skincare. Their concept of using patches to target specific areas of the face and body is one of the greatest. This limits your hands from coming in contact with creams and gels which can sometimes be messy. Patchology recently added a couple new products to their line: SmartMud No Mess Mud Masque and PoshPeel Pedi Cure. Patchology sent me both products and here are my honest reviews. Continue reading “Patchology Review: SmartMud Mask + PoshPeel”
