I'm so excited to try out another VoxBox! I've done 3 so far. The GlamVoxBox, the SproutVoxbox and the Maybelline BetterSkin Powder VoxBox. I got the Maybelline one when I was in a blogging slump so I never did a post on it.

My Favorite Disney & Pixar Films

When I was a kid I never liked musicals. So I never really watched Disney films. I still haven't watched any originals other than Cinderella. And to be honest I don't remember it very well.

So most of the Disney films I like are the ones they've made partnered with Pixar. I only recently started to like musicals a little bit and so I like some of the newer Disney films but some are still to show tuney for me.

Ulta Birthday Gift - 2017 2nd Quarter

I love beauty reward programs! Coupons, exclusive deals and birthday gifts! Sephora does same gift for the whole year but Ulta changed their gift every 3 months. I did a post in February about Ulta's first quarter gift and sephora's 2017 gifts.  

My mom got this quarter's gift and gave it to me. I was so excited to see that it was the new Lancome Mascara as a pre-release sample! This mascara is coming to Ulta in July. I'm so excited to try it before launch!

Summer Lips

I can't believe it's almost summer! How is the first day of summer only a little over a month away? I say that but I've had my AC on for about 2 weeks so I shouldn't really be surprised.

I have always been a fan of any shade in any season so instead of going all reds or all corals or nudes I've compiled a little list for you if my favorite lip products that wear really well in the heat.

What's In My Makeup Bag - May 2017

I can't believe it's May. This year is going by so fast! I'm pretty sure my brain has lost complete track of time. I was looking for a particular YouTube video the other and I was convinced it was uploaded in August or September of last year. Turns out it was uploaded in February of this year. My sense of time is all out of whack.

I was looking through my makeup bag this morning and switched some things out since the last time I showed you so I figured it's time to update you all on what is in my makeup. It doesn't feel like 3 months since I uploaded my last WIMMB in February.

The Blogger TAG - Part 2

Happy May everyone! Today I bring you a sort of part 2 to The Blogger Tag. I was tagged by the lovely Howling Wolfheart to do The Blogger Tag. Some of you may remember I did Blogger tag in back in January. In that one I took a bunch of questions I've seen online and made my own tag. Since the questions are different I decided to do this as a part 2!

You can read Kitten's answers to the tag here

I also did the Beauty Blogger Tag about 2 weeks ago. Those questions were more beauty based but you can check that out if you would like.

Now onto the tag!

Real Techniques | Brand Spotlight

Let me start by saying I adore Real Techniques! So spoiler alert I 100% recommend the brand. Today I want to tell you guys about the products and the brand itself. All the brand spotlights I've seen talk about some of the products but they don't talk much about the brand.
