Hi Guys,

I'm back with a re-review.  What do I mean by that?  Well this time around i'm actually reviewing a product for a second time.  A couple of months ago the Sassi Dark Lash Glue made my "Products I Regret Buying List".  Turns out the company saw it, revamped the product and i'm testing it out for you again!

It's Been A While! Quick MAC Haul

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another haul video.  It's been a while since my last purchase from MAC Cosmetics but there's no denying that there are several classics which I always go back to.  A lot of these items are what I consider kit must haves and I always restock my kit with them when they run out.

Dying My Extensions at Home!

Hi Bellas,

I love wearing clip-in extensions when I go out or have a special event.  They just make me feel super sexy and they add so much volume.  I originally bought my extensions in a brown with caramel highlights to match the hair color i've had for the last few years.  However in the last several months I've gone through some new color phases so I needed to make sure my extensions matched.  Here's how you can dye your own hair extensions at home!

Makeup Storage & Organization: Lori Greiner Deluxe

Hi Bellas,

It's a new year and one of my early resolutions was to cut out the clutter and get organized, especially when it comes to my personal makeup!  I've gone through numerous solutions that just didn't work - Sterilite drawers, container store organizers, drawer inserts...they just didn't cut it.  

I scoured the internet for ideas and kept running across Lori Greiner's name.  She's a storage/organization guru featured on QVC and I saw quite a few Blog Posts and YouTube videos on her products.  By chance we happened to meet on a twitter and I've got a great opportunity to share a review of one of her products.  If you're a makeup junkie like me and you're looking for some practical storage solutions, this post is definitely for you!

Product Spotlight: Makeup Mirror Must-Have!

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another post.  Today I wanted to feature something that I am absolutely loving lately.  I'd wait to feature it in next month's favorites but I want to share it now!  Have you ever had to fumble with different mirrors when doing your makeup?  You're using the big bathroom mirror to do foundation...then need to switch to a hand held to get your eyeshadow...then a magnifying to do your brows...all the while limiting your ability to hold your brushes and making the process too cumbersome.  Well recently I purchased something that solves all of that!
