Oh and no worries I’ll be back soon enough with some new makeup posts as well.



Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette Review, Swatches and Photos

It’s safe to say that I’m obsessed with Urban Decay palettes so when the Urban Decay Vice 4 palette went live on Urban Decay last week I ordered it right away.


I mean just look at it how could I not?


Vice4 is loaded with 20 gorgeous, never-before-seen eyeshadow shades.

It also comes with a double-ended brush and a coordinating bag.

And unlike most sequels, Vice4 will keep you hooked and coming back for more.



The shades include: Bones (oyster satin w/pearl), Grip (taupe matte w/iridescent micro-glitter), Deadbeat (black satin w/iridescent micro-glitter), Beat Down (deep metallic violet w/blue micro-glitter), Pandemonium (metallic plum w/iridescent micro-glitter), Framed (light neutral matte-satin), Fast-Ball (metallic peachy pink w/pink micro-glitter), 1985 (metallic fuchsia w/fuchsia micro-glitter), Underhand (burgundy-brown satin) Harlot (metallic lavender).


Discreet (soft dusty mauve matte), Grasshopper (metallic emerald w/green micro-glitter), C-Note (frosted green w/micro-glitter), Arctic (bright teal w/tonal sparkle), Robbery (deep metallic brown-gunmetal), Bitter (reddish brown matte), Flame (bright orange w/gold micro-glitter), Low (brown matte w/iridescent micro-glitter), Crowbar (black w/golden metallic pearl and micro-glitter) and Delete (deep chestnut brown matte-satin).

As you can see the shadows are highly pigmented and easy to use and blend.

I’m obsessed and I can’t believe that I’m not hearing more about the palette than I am.

The best Vice Palette so far in my opinion.

Highly recommend!

Vice 4 is available here for $60.00 or it launches at Sephora on the 25th.

Are you a fan of Urban Decay?

Mio Boob Tube + Multi-Action Bust Firmer Review


As women we spend a fortune on anti aging products for our face, but we often forget to take as good of care of our chest and hands.

I myself have personally met several women who look like they could be in their 30s until you look at them from the neck down and then you realize she’s probably closer to 50.

And really who wants to look young only on the face?

I apply sunscreen and moisturizer to my chest daily, but other than that I never thought much about it.

That is until a couple of months ago when I read an interview where Khloe Kardashian mentioned how Kourtney had got her addicted to a product called Mio Boob Tube.

She said:

“Kourtney got me into all these Mama Mio products that are all natural—I think she used them when she was breast-feeding. I use one of their other products called the Pregnancy Boob Tube every day. It’s got avocado oil and shea butter so when your boobs are growing you don’t get stretch marks. I like it though, because it tightens your neck, too. I’ve been using it everyday for a year. Now people always ask me, ‘Why do you have this?’ Hinting as if I’m trying to have a baby, and I’m like, ‘No, no. It’s just because I f—n’ like it’.”

So I being the beauty addict I am of course starting researching the item.

Heres what the company themselves claim:

Mio’s famous bust and décolleté firmer just got better! Mio Boob Tube+ Multi-Action Bust Firmer keeps delicate skin toned, bright and crinkle-free, plus gives super sag protection. Aim North, not South!

– Keeps lines and crinkles at bay so thin skin stays smooth.
– Visibly healthier, fitter, glowing skin within days.
– Skin brightening actives take years off sun damaged skin.

Sounds wonderful right?

It is!

I picked it up from Amazon and have been using and loving it ever since.

My decollete area is softer and brighter than ever and hopefully with continued use I’ll be able to keep that area aging as gracefully as the rest of me.

Oh and if you want to multitask you can use this item on your face as well, because its made with facial quality ingredients.

So tell me have you ever tried these products?

Would you?

Mio Boob Tube is available on amazon for $48.00.



My Staycation Trip to Disney World & Stay at The Grand Floridian Hotel

Hey there!

Sorry for the lack of posts around here lately, but I’ve been on vacation.

Well it was more like a staycation since we don’t live very far away, but it was still a nice relaxing trip.

My husband and I enjoy trying out the different Disney hotels so this year we decided to stay at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for Labor Day and it was a lot of fun.


One of the great things about staying at the Grand Floridian hotel is the fact that the Monorail travels to the hotel so you can just hop on it and head straight to the Magic Kingdom.

Cool huh?

It was nice to be able to pop into the park for an hour here and there and then turn around and head right back over to the hotel to rest/shop/eat/swim/etc.

Oh and can we talk about the Interior of the hotel?

The hotel has a Victorian meets modern sophistication vibe that I just loved.

Pretty right?

Besides hanging out in the lobby listening to the live orchestra play ragtime, jazz and popular Disney tunes, checking out the Spa and hanging out in the pool there was also lots of shopping inside the hotel to take advantage of.

Like The Basin White store and another store which had a Guerlain counter inside.

It was a very dangerous situation for me to be in, but I ended up only picking up a few things so I was proud of myself :)

Back in the room….

Travel essentials.

Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion™ Pore Perfecting Exfoliator Review


As someone with a combination/oily skin type who suffers with enlarged pores I jumped at the chance to review this exfoliator.

Thanks IFABBO!

What they say:

Dr. brandt PoreDermabrasion is a unique professional grade physical and chemical exfoliator and pore perfector in one. No matter how old you are or what type of skin you have, enlarged pores are a huge concern. Shrink them down to the vanishing point while smoothing and evening skin’s texture.

  • refines the appearance of pores
  • deep cleanses pores
  • strengthens pore walls and tightens
  • smooths and evens skin texture

My thoughts:

This product looks innocent enough, but it’s a pretty powerful exfoliator.

Immediately after using it my pores look smaller and my skin feels amazing.

Be careful though they recommend waiting 3 days in between applications and for good reason.

I didn’t read that part and used it several days in a row and my skin felt pretty sensitive/dry.

As long as you follow the directions though you’re going to love this product.

It’s wonderful and I highly recommend it for someone who deals with enlarged pores.

Have you tried this product before?


Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion retails for $58.00 here.
