The Beauty Capsule

I cannot tell you how excited I am to unleash my newest favorite thing in the whole wide makeup lovin’ world! Let me start at it’s birthplace… As a beauty blogger of sorts you get sent a massive amount of products to try. When this first began I was thrilled beyond belief! YAY MORE! As the products started piling up and piling up I kept trying to find new ways to organize them. Attempt after attempt was made to no avail.

They gave me anxiety and made my makeup session %50 finding...

A major hair favorite

When I first posted this I told Nick I wished someone would pin it on Pinterest because it’s a really cool technique and I thought pinning your own stuff might be inappropriate or something. Nick thought that was silly and said “pin it yourself!” So I quickly pinned it and then went to bed soon after.
