Smarties, Spring is around the corner and I am in a make-up rut! I need to branch out from my mascara and red lipstick routine. I am becoming the dreaded “predicatable” with my everyday look. Seriously, I am 40+ and I still have no clue how to wear make-up.

Once I inquired about the different brands, I knew this was too good not to share with you! Read More →
