Something I could have only imagined would happen in my wildest dreams, happened: I received two Influenster VoxBoxes in one month!

This most recent VoxBox came with a whole slue of goodies from Bite Beauty and Sephora Canada, including a dual size sharpener, two Bite Amuse Bouche Lipsticks (in Honeycomb & Whiskey), and the brand new Lip Pencils (#20 & #44). Described as having “addictively creamy coverage”, these pencils glide onto your lips with ease, allowing for the perfect application. I paired them with the coordinating lipstick, and my lips felt the softest they ever have with product applied to them. With 22 neutral shades in this collection, I’m excited to head to Sephora to try out a few additional shades!

INFLUENSTER REVIEW: MAYBELLINE’S MASTER CONTOUR

Few things make me as happy as when I receive a free box of makeup goodies in the mail. Strike that. Few things make me as happy as when I get an email from Influenster stating I am on the short list to receive a VoxBox. So, imagine my delight when I found out I would be receiving the latest campaign from Maybelline.

I am excited to introduce the new Master Contour stick by Maybelline New York! This baby is a combo contour and highlight stick, with both products in one easy-to-use product. I am all about ease of application when I am doing my makeup, especially in the morning before work when time is at a premium, so I was intrigued to see that getting a fully contoured face was as easy as flipping which side I used. Maybelline New York’s mission is to offer innovative, accessible and effortless cosmetics for every woman, and that’s exactly what this product is. Not only was this product innovative, but it is as effortless as makeup could be, and how could I not love that?!

To see how easy the new Master Contour stick is to use, check out my YouTube tutorial. And be sure to let me know in the comments if you love this product as much as I do!

MY STYLE: BATTER UP!

In my last post I talked about the importance of taking care of yourself and not losing sight of things that bring you joy. And that’s exactly what my shoot with Lady Luck Pinups was all about: a moment to focus on myself, feel beautiful, sassy, and have an absolutely amazing afternoon with an equally amazing person.

I first stumbled upon Lady Luck Pinups via a mutual friend on Instagram, and after months of liking one another’s pictures, we finally got the chance to meet at the Curvy Expo earlier this year. Meeting Jennifer was like running into a long lost friend – there were hugs and smiles and I felt instantly comfortable around her. And the photo shoot was no different! As soon as I walked through the studio door, Deanna, the makeup and hair stylist, made me feel like the babeliest babe around. And that feeling continued as I got behind the lens and Jennifer gave me a crash course on how to pose like a pinup. I knew, without a doubt, that this team had my back and was there to make my experience the best it could be, and they did just that…and more!

And can we talk about this adorable Rockford Peaches dress I found online? I have wanted one of these dresses for ages, but never took the plunge (my obsession with this movie runs deep, if you couldn’t tell by my blog handle). In keeping with the theme of doing what brings me joy, I bought this baby as soon as I booked my photo shoot and excitedly messaged Jennifer to let her know I wanted to do an A League Of Their Own inspired shoot. She was totally on board and made my idea come to life! She even drove to multiple grocery stores to find the perfectly round peaches, just for me. How could you not love this woman?! I can’t wait to get back behind her lens again soon!
