Astrology: My Zodiac, Rising, and Moon Signs

Astrology: My Zodiac, Rising, and Moon Signs

When I was growing up one of my favorite things was astrology. In the third grade, I wanted to study the stars and go to the moon. Every night I would go outside and look at the constellations then ask my father a million questions about them. Now while I don’t believe certain star positions or moon phases effect people, I will admit there is a correlation that can happen. Like when I worked at a pet hotel, there was a strong relationship to a full moon causing all of the dogs in camp to go crazy. Or just weird behaviors to come out when the moon was full. And while I don’t agree with everything my zodiac sign states about me, when combined with my moon sign and rising or sun sign it kind of all just describes me to a tee. So I thought I would share that today.

Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara Review

Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes Statement Mascara Review

So when I first got the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara I often mis-write it has Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes Mascara… not realizing that there actually was a mascara with that name. So I thought I would actually give that one a try since I fail all of the time with writing the name as mascara. So let’s just make it even more confusing when I’m writing what mascara I’m using by having both. And this post in particular might get a little odd or confusing since I’ll be mentioning both a lot.

Which Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Blurs More: Pore Minimizing or Super Light Smooth & Blur

Which Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Blurs More: …

Smashbox has a bunch of different Photo Finish Primers since their original one. And two of them sound insanely similar: Smooth & Blur Primer and Pore Minimizing. Cause when I think Pore Minimizing, I think making my face look smooth underneath the foundation. Both primers have two sizes, the full size ($39 for 1.0 oz of product) and the travel size ($15 for 0.41 oz of product). But what is the difference between the two is what I was wondering. So I decided to do a primer battle by using one on each side then applying the same foundation over top and seeing the difference in application and longevity.

Kristin Ess The One Signature Shampoo & Extra Gentle Scalp Conditioner Review

Kristin Ess The One Signature Shampoo & Extra Gentle Scalp Conditioner Review

For the past few months, I’ve switched shampoo and conditioner from Function of Beauty to Kristin Ess. I loved their Strand Strengthening Reconstructive Moisture Mask, which had brought my hair back from the dead. So I thought I would give their shampoo and conditioner a chance. They do have several different ones but I decided to go with The One Signature Shampoo and Extra Gentle Scalp Conditioner. Both contain Zip-Up Technology from Kristin Ess that helps restore split ends, smooths the appearance of damaged cuticles, and helps protect the hair from environmental stressors and color fade. Both products were $10 at Target and contain 10 fl oz or 296 mL of product.

Beauty Bakerie Foundation, Concealer, and Setting Powder All-Day Wear Test & Review

Beauty Bakerie Foundation, Concealer, and Setting Powder All-Day Wear Test & Review

One day that has aesthetic goals is the indie brand named Beauty Bakerie. All of their products are inspired by baking, and this is a black owned brand. This is the first time I’m trying any of their products and I wanted to especially try out their face products. One to see how light their lightest face products are and I’ve heard great things about their baking flour (setting powder). So I received the following products: Cake Mix Demi-Matte Foundation #59, Cake Face Concealer in Don’t Give a Frappe, and Flour Setting Powder in Translucent.

Life Lately | July 2018

This week started out with Pixie’s fifth birthday, it’s insane to think my little puppy is half way through her life or so. Which I’m kind of sad about, but she’s my best friend so it was fun to celebrate her birthday. She got to have full run of the plush toy drawer that belongs to Winnie, which was something she really loved. I also gave her a spoonful of peanut butter with her favorite treat in the middle. Which is had a lot of fun with since the peanut butter was cold from being in the fridge beforehand. And it was a little hot outside so I’m sure that made it even better.
