Skincare Saturday: Hydration Station

img_2701Happy #nationalhydrationday T-Belles! I don’t know about you but there aren’t too many things I love more than skin that naturally radiates on it’s own all day. You know, that moisturized without trying look. One glance at you turns into three long stares in admiration and suddenly everyone wants to ask you what product you have on your face giving you that luscious glow but instead you get to say “nope that’s just me”. Take it from me, looking for the right products can be A PAIN! I’m going to be sharing a #skincaresecret that most of us if not all will love and use. Not to mention it’s 100% free and only takes 3 minutes or less.

Makeup Find: Lancôme Defencils

Happy Monday T-Belles! I hope we all remember to start the week off with some form of positivity and radiance! This morning while getting ready, I realized that I’ve been holding back on a new mascara I’ve recently tried and have been absolutely loving: Lancôme Defencils. I don’t believe any look is complete without a full dramatic eye. Like most of us though, I want to be able to achieve this in a quicker manner. Finding the right mascara is like finding a comfortable pair of heels … you have to search. Continue reading

How Much Does My Everyday Makeup Look Cost?

6d4e1790-17c4-44c2-bec4-598627a216cdHi T-Belles! When getting ready quickly, I instantly default to my go-to every day makeup look. I recently noticed that I was running low in a lot of my products. So, naturally I asked myself: “How much does this all cost, anyway?” Well, let’s find out together! Continue reading

The Beauty of Being Human

globeRecently, I’ve been studying neorealism in my cinema class – one of the most fascinating genres out there (says me, a girl who doesn’t like genres or categories or whatever else you want to call it). Neorealism focuses on...reality; the moments we, as humans, face everyday but that many other movie genres choose to ignore or cut out. Think of the last time somebody has intimidated you with whom they are. By that I mean, when was the last time someone or something approached you in an organic way and because of your disconnect, you felt uncomfortable?  Continue reading

Hi T-Belles! Currently Central Texas has been dealing with a thunderstorm, creating some really warm days in between, as many of us know. Because of this moody weather lately, the urge to put on makeup has been lacking, so instead I’ve been doing the unbearable thing for many: leaving the house (mostly) bare-faced. There are two crucial things you all should know about me:

One: As much as I love makeup, if the weather isn’t right outside I’m not putting it on

Two: I don’t play any games when it comes to skincare because of thing #1

Stepping into the New Year the Right Way

img_2061I’m sure I’m not the only one who noticed an odd sense of charm the second the clock hit midnight this previous New Year’s Eve. Something about the air has screamed ‘cultivate’ since and truthfully, I haven’t been this motivated to make the most of my year and stay productive while reaching new heights.
