I’ve Been Dying To Try These Brushes! 

So these oval brushes are all the craze right now. I feel like everyone on YouTube who does makeup has used them in their videos at least once! So, of course I had to try them! The only thing that stopped me at first was the price for them from the company that first came out with these, Artis Brushes. Each one of these brushes costs about $70 and for the complete set it was close to around $500! Of course I was not going to be able to afford them, so I decided to buy my set of brushes from Zaful at a grand total price of $20 for a set of ten!

Now, I do not know how well the Artis brushes work, but the ones I bought seemed to work fine with me. They blended my foundation on my face perfectly and evenly. I did not have any swipe lines on my face from the brushes. They were also pretty fluffy and smooth. I would definitely recommend these brushes as a great dupe to the Artis brushes.


Don’t mind my face in these shots, my forehead breaks out when I am under stress & I also haven’t done a face mask on myself in a very long time. I think it is time for a spa night for myself.

Final look. 😀

A Refreshing Hair Mask For Growing & Strengthening Your Hair 

With Summer being right around the corner, I started the process of lightening my hair. Anyone who has ever colored their hair knows that it will damage your hair, especially if you are going lighter! To help repair and lengthen my hair, I started using a hair masks out of Coconut oil and castor oil once a week. This helped with keeping my hair soft and healthy after my color treatment. Recently, I started using essential oils in my everyday life, and so I decided to use essential oils in my hair masks as well.

This last week has been a very emotional week for Kat & me and I have been feeling very fatigued and with low spirits. Because of this, I wanted to give myself a small spa feeling that would leave me refreshed and rejuvenated. For making this hair mask, I combined three carrier oils: the Trader Joe’s coconut oil, doTERRA’s fractionated coconut oil and Castor oil (to help with hair growth) and two essential oils: Wild Orange to lift up my mood and energy & Peppermint to awaken and give me a refreshing feeling. I combined all the oils and rubbed it all over my scalp going down to my hair ends. Once I felt like I spread it evenly across my hair, I combed out my hair to spend it even more evenly.

This is how my hair looks once I am done. I then just leave my hair like this for the rest of the day and wash my hair the following morning.

Out Of This World

How awesome is my outfit!? I absolutely it! I’ve never been a person who wears bright patterns, although I’ve always loved them. Maybe it was because I never had the guts… but lately I’ve been growing into my own and doing what makes me happy. And let me tell you, this outfit makes me super happy! Life is too short to not wear what you want because of fear of what people might say or how you might look. So, go out and do or be what makes you happy!

I got the awesome leggings here & the awesome matching hoodie I got here.

I have this crazy dream…

Have you all ever really wanted to do something but fear gets in your way? That’s exactly what I have been going through for the past two years… maybe not so much fear getting in my way, moreso doubt in myself. Lack of confidence. 

For a while now, I have been obsessed with makeup- both doing it on myself and others. Because of this obsession of mine- I spend hours at times watching my favorite YouTube makeup gurus just sit in front of a camera and put on makeup. How envious I am! 

So for the past two years I’ve been saying I am going to start a YouTube channel and do what I love doing as a hobby, but has that happened?! NO! Why? Because for some crazy reason I have no confidence in my skill. Which is obviously crazy because with practice comes skill- because it will never be perfect, there’s always room to grow. 🙂

Well, I am finally taking that step for my YouTube channel dream- I am buying a camera! Something so simple yet so big at the same time! 

Until then, here are some pictures from when I played with some makeup. 🙂
