Beauty Buzz Trial - Sweet LeiLani Cosmetics

Beauty Buzz Trial - Sweet LeiLani Cosmetics
Hey Beauty Bees,

Although I wish I could be laying on an Island beach right now, I will just have to settle by staring at the beautiful Island features on the packaging of the Sweet LeiLani Cosmetics I received for this review.

This Canadian brand was built from a desire to help women, men and children who suffer silently from effects of cancer, burns, and scarring by utilizing makeup and paramedical tattooing techniques. Their motivating factor was to help those undergoing treatment to look and feel better while boosting their confidence and self-esteem.

Black Friday Sales

Hey Beauty Bees,

For the past few years, I have spent Black Friday among all the other excited shoppers, hunting for deals on Christmas gifts as well as goodies for myself. Every year has been the same process for me. At the beginning of November I bookmark all my favorite Black Friday Ad sites so I can easily check them every other day to keep up to date on what stores will have what sales. It always got exciting for me the week of Thanksgiving when anticipated stores like Sephora, Ulta and Victoria Secret start to share their sale ads!

Thanksgiving Youtube Tag

Thanksgiving Youtube Tag
Hey Beauty Bees,

Thanksgiving is in just a few days and I am super excited to celebrate my first one being married and living in the State. While watching some Youtube videos the other day, I came upon a Thanksgiving tag that I thought would be fun to help share what I like/dislike and how I celebrate Thanksgiving.

Feel free to use these questions on your own blog or Youtube channel, and send me a link in the comments if you do.

Thanksgiving Outfit Lookbook

Thanksgiving Outfit Lookbook
Hey Beauty Bees,

Next week all of America will be celebrating Thanksgiving with their turkey dinners (or whatever type of meals you serve on this Holiday). On Thanksgiving, we give thanks to the blessings we have received throughout the year, celebrate the end of the harvest as well as jump start the "Holiday season".

One of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving dinner was choosing my outfit for the day. Every year was different depending on if I was in the mood to dress up or to just throw on a pair of yoga pants.

I put together 3 different looks that you could get ideas from to possibly wear to your own Thanksgiving dinner.

Beauty Buzz Trial - Ipsy Bag November 2015 "Beauty Blast"

Beauty Buzz Trial - Ipsy Bag November 2015 "Beauty Blast"
Hey Beauty Bees,

It is the time of the month where I share my Ipsy bag and this month is going to be a "Beauty Blast". The theme seems to be very futuristic and colorful to me. This bag was full of products that were very bright and eye catching, perfect for the month of November when the weather starts to make everything seem very drab and dull.

What's in my Shower


What's in my Shower
Hey Beauty Bees,

As I reached for my shampoo this morning and worked the suds into my hair, I started to wonder if anyone had the same products in their shower. After I dried off and finished getting ready for the day, I searched some of my favorites beauty bloggers and YouTubers to see if they had a "Whats in my Shower" post.

After comparing products for a while, I thought it would be fun to share with you what I have been using on a daily basis while getting ready in the morning.

Benefit Cosmetics Real Cheeky Party Holiday Blush Palette First Impression

Hey Beauty Bees,

I am overly excited to share with you a product that I have been anticipating getting for over a year! I have always loved and wanted to try out the boxed powders that Benefit is famous for but I always turned the other way since I cannot get myself to pay almost $30 for a single blush or bronzer. Last year they came out with a limited edition blush palette for the Holidays which included 6 of the powders and the Watts Up highlighter. I remember being in a Sephora with Chris, holding the palette in hand but was once again second guessing myself on purchasing it. Both of us not realizing that it was a "Limited Edition" product, Chris decided he was going to get it for me for Christmas and told me to hold off. The next week before he was able to get it for me, they sold out everywhere. I was bummed but its just makeup so I just figured it was not meant to be.

This past June I did a "Whats in my Purse" post where I showed you everything I carried with me on a daily basis. Today, I wanted to do an updated purse tour to show you what products I have in my current bag and share what I like to carry with me during the Fall and Winter time.

The Holiday Beauty Gift Sets of 2015

The Holiday Beauty Gift Sets of 2015
Hey Beauty Bees,

We are only a few days into November but I have been hearing Christmas carols on every other radio station and retail stores are getting into full swing holiday mode. I will admit, I am SUPER excited for Christmas this year for so many different reasons. In that regard, seeing all the Holiday beauty sets from different beauty retailers and brands have me biting at the bit to start swiping my debit card and entering my pin. 

These sets usually have a value way over their selling price, making them highly popular and anticipated during the Holiday seasons. With a lot of these sets being limited edition, I wanted to give everyone the heads up. They sell out quickly since they usually only have a limited stock, meaning no second guessing from you, if you want it you need to grab it right away.

I did some of the ground work for you and scoured the internet on some of the best beauty brands and retailers to find some of their most popular gift sets. Take a peek below and if you find something that you or someone else may like, click through to purchase. (**I am not affiliated with these brands and am not making any sort of compensation.)
Ulta
Ulta
Sephora
Sephora
Benefit
Tarte
Too Faced
Bath and Body Works
Lush
There are way too many gift sets to share from Lush, so you will need to head to their site to find out prices. What I have shown above range from $14.95-$57.95, but there are some up to $200+ dollars.

Fall Fashion and Beauty Haul

Fall Fashion and Beauty Haul
Hey Beauty Bees,

The other night I made the mistake of going out without a jacket and I froze after just a few minutes in that 40 degree weather. The very next day I decided I needed to go out and find a new jacket for Winter time along with some other Fall/Winter items like boots, scarves and sweaters. After a few hours walking around my favorite mall, Natick, I had made a few purchases but was still without a coat in my possession. Luckily, I did find one that I liked and was in my price range but I had to order it online, along with a few other purchases that I made.

October 2015 Favorites

October 2015 Favorites
Hey Beauty Bees,

The month of October has come to an end and November is beginning, bringing a festive Thanksgiving, an overwhelming Black Friday and a sprinkle of Christmas preparation. Before I can fully dive into the craziness of November, I want to reflect back on what made this past month so great. As I munch on a few last pieces of candy that did not make it out to the trick or treaters, I want to share with you everything that I loved and enjoyed from October.
