Urban Decay released their Disco Queen Collection recently.  They were kind enough to send this over for me to try. Immediately upon opening this lovely gift, I was into the packaging. It was pretty! It was fun! I couldn’t wait to dig in and see what this was all about. Continue reading

October Favorites

9C1DF4EE-5F74-4277-874E-67ABB93647F5

Every time I do one of these posts, I always feel like I’m leaving something out. I most likely am forgetting some things that I’ve been loving. That’s just how it goes with me… Anyway, can’t believe it’s already another new month – and November at that! Hello, holidays that are lurking around the corner. I also can’t believe how long it’s been since I did a monthly favorites post. My bad. Continue reading

IMG_7242

The other day, L’oreal sent over a package of some of their products for me to try out. I own a couple of their lipsticks, but other than that I don’t own much. I am very excited to try out these products! I would just like to thank L’oreal so much for the kind gift and opportunity to give these a try. Continue reading

Self Hosted Sites? Help! I have Some Questions…

unnamed

This post is going to be a little bit different. It’s not beauty related at all, but just more so a post, asking you guys for some help. So, when I started my blog last October, I didn’t know anything about self hosted websites or any of that. I still don’t really, lol that’s why I’m making this post.

I’ve been really curious about it for a while because, while I love WordPress.. I’m restricted to having a great layout that I want, like how I see other blogs have these really amazing layouts. I mean, that’s pretty much my main concern. I’ve had to use a basic one that came with my WordPress plan. I want ones that I can buy and install and those ones won’t allow it on here.

Pixi Beauty Peel & Polish Review

IMG_2500I was pleasantly surprised when I received this package from Pixi Beauty, who very kindly sent this out for me to try.

Pixi is a new brand for me. I’ve noticed this brand maybe, two months ago? I was in Target and had my eye on their Hydrating Milky Mist and Glow Mist. I was hearing wonderful reviews on them and kept debating if I should pick them up to give them a try.

I ended up not getting them… but I’m heading to Target this week and I do have them on my list. With that said, after trying this product, I am now very eager and excited to try other products from this company. (Which is why I will be heading to Target to pick up those mists. ) Continue reading

1,000 Followers! Thank you!

18118476_10158603351190173_7417776634105198122_n

Ahh! You guys! I hit 1k followers! What?!? I still find that a little crazy to me. When I started my blog back in October of 2016, I didn’t really know what to expect. I didn’t think anyone would read it! Never did I imagine that today, I’d have 1,000 followers!

I’m so grateful to each and everyone of you who has decided to follow me, like my posts, comment, etc. I’ve met some really great people over here and this little blogging community is so kind and wonderful. I’m so happy to have each and everyone of you!

This means so much. I love all my followers on Instagram and Twitter, don’t get me wrong. This little space I have on here is different. I’m not just posting pics or writing (most of the time on Twitter lol) nonsense. You guys are actually reading what I’m writing and getting something out of that. You are listening to what I have to say and deciding to follow me. That’s why with every follower I get on here, it means a lot. (Again, I love every follower I get on all my other social media pages. I just think this one is a little bit more personal.) Hopefully you understand what I’m trying to explain. 🙂

I’ve been tossing around the idea of having some kind of giveaway on here. I wanted to do something when I hit 1k. I’m just not sure how to go about doing it just yet. I’ve never done one and I’m trying to figure out how I’d like to go about doing this. I’ll keep you guys updated on that.

I just want to thank you all once again. Thank you for deciding to follow me (or stick with me if you’ve been here since the beginning) I’m glad you guys enjoy my posts and I love connecting with you all. Every like and comment you give me means so much and makes me so happy.

THANK YOU!!! 🙂

Please feel free to connect with me over on my Instagram or Twitter – ThattgirlJenn just let me know your handle so I can add you back! I also have reviews I do on my Instagram that I don’t always post on here. I’d love to be able to connect over there as well.

Thanks for reading! 🙂

Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter Review

FacetuneToo Faced did it again and sucked me in with their cute packaging. For the longest time I would resist… I usually only buy mascara, blush,  and lip products from Too Faced. I have lots of great ones from this brand… and so far, I’ve had no issues. No complaints.

With Instagram now, I see all the cute pics of all the latest things, of course. It makes it hard sometimes not to buy into the hype. If you’ve been reading my blog, you know I’m not a big fan of Too Faced eyeshadows. I like the brand okay, just not their shadows much. Personally, for me, I just think there are better quality palettes out there. I usually don’t buy their palettes. With this brand, as I mentioned, I just stick with the blushes, mascara, lippies. This was something new for me to try.

I was shopping the other day and I’ll admit, I had my eye on these. I kept seeing them on my Instagram feed and I was curious. I’ve been on a big highlighter and blush kick lately. I went in and swatched these. I loved the gold one (You Light Up My Life) the best (though I figured it wouldn’t look that great on me.. still, I had to have it) I did noticed these felt very dry. Not smooth or buttery as a lot of my favorite highlighters are.

Anastasia Beverly Hills & Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit Palette Swatches & Mini Review

img_9983I got this palette on Sunday. I had heard that a lot of Sephora’s were selling them early (even though it was set to release in stores on March 3 or 4th) I called one of my Sephora stores just to ask. The girl said she had them and put one aside for me and off I went to snatch this pretty up!

Ahh! I am in heaven! I’ve wanted this palette since I first saw the colors. Stunning. Just stunning. I’m not sure why these palettes were in Sephora so early, but I am not complaining. I was ready to order it online… which I didn’t really want to because… that little thing called waiting. I’m so happy I was able to get my hands on this earlier! Continue reading

New Year… Same Me

15825954_10158030144400173_6346444737883648717_nIt’s that time of year again when I’ll continue to write (or type) in last years year. No joke I googled 2016 image pics instead of 2017. I sat looking at them for a couple of minutes until it finally clicked… and I’m like, “Oh yeah, we’re in a new year now. It’s 2017… not 16.”

Six days in so far and it feels no different. (I mean, does it really ever?) I’m still a little bummed that Christmas is over. No more excitement.

Some people are so quick to remove all traces of the holidays, literally, the moment Christmas ends. I have friends who take down and toss out their trees before the end of the night is over on Christmas Day! On Christmas Day!

I like to enjoy it a little longer. When I was a kid we’d always take our decorations and stuff down after January 1st. I still do that to this day. My husband and I will… sadly, take everything down probably this weekend.  Continue reading
