Swap with My dear friend NIKITA!!! KikiDBeauty!!

Hey dolls!!! Through this whole experience I have met some really wonderful people and I'm so thankful for it!! It really is amazing how you can meet people thousands of miles away from you who share your same interests! Nikita is one of the first people I reached out to on youtube months ago when I first started my blog and yt channel. She is such a sweet and friendly girl so it was easy to talk to her about all the things we love.  We recently decided to swap some makeup since she lives in the UK and doesn't have access to some of the products we have here, and likewise there are many things in the UK that I don't have access to.  Let me tell you guys how fun and exciting this is!!! It was like christmas all over again when I received my package. I highly recommend you try this if you keep in touch with people from different countries :) In this swap we set our budget and sent each other a list of the things we've been dying to try..
Things I sent her:
- Maybelline Color Tattoos in Pomegranite Punk and Fierce & Tangy
- Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer Quad
- Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Peach Satin
- Milani Baked Blush in Berry Amore
- Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Tipsy
- Tarte Amazonian Maricuja Lipgloss in Amused
- EOS Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet

:) Check out the video to see what she kindly sent me :)

Its been FOREVER!!!

Soo Soo Sooooo Sorry beauties!! I've been absent for a bit due to some projects I've been working on out of town that have been consuming my every free moment lol! I will disclose more details in the future :) but I'm really excited with how things are going in the process!! :) So let me catch you up on many things I've been working on.  I have still been trying to upload videos to my youtube channel weekly, as time permits, so make sure to keep up with those and see me venture into the wonderful world of colors :) As many of you may know, I am THE BIGGEST NEUTRAL lover ever lol, so many of my looks are very soft, romantic, every day type looks.  However, I've been really working on incorporating colors into looks to make them more BOLD :)!! yay so since I've been MIA for a bit I just want to catch you up on the past couple videos I've created :) ENJOY!

Coral Collaboration w/ KikiDBeauty!!! :)

Happy Valentines Day!! Came across this and wanted to share :) .....

Hey Dolls,
Happy Valentines Day!! Hope you all have a fabulous day filled with love :)!!! Just wanted to share some food for thought :)!

“For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
 For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
 For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
 For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
 For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
 People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
 As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.”

Hey Dolls :)
I had soo much fun putting together a little valentine's day look for you.  This is actually a collaboration with my dear friend Norma from AbnormalAllure :) She did a more night time appropriate look where as my look is a bit more subtle and something I'd feel comfortable wearing during the day.  I really hope you guys enjoy this video and don't forget to check out Norma at her blog and yt channel :)!!! Love you guys! Have a fabulous Valentines DAY!!!!!
Much love, XO - Em
