I'm also feeling 22 like the great philosopher T-Swizzle (aka taylor swift) says. I'm honestly sad to see 21 go, but so far for the past 5 days (while i'm writing this post) 22 has been amazing! I spent my birthday in Atlanta, with 3 of my good friends. We went to the World of Coke, which is great if you want to taste test all the different sodas offered by coke, I definitely got a sugar high. We also went to Sky View, where my fear of heights was tested, but I enjoyed the view and it was a great escape from the blazing heat. Lastly we enjoyed the Sun Dial restaurant, which is honestly the coolest experience ever! You go to the top floor of the Westin hotel in downtown and the floors spin around while you eat. and you get to see the whole view around you. Basically my fear of heights were tested the majority of the day, but it was worth it haha. So excited for 22 and all it has to offer!

I had been hearing about Colourpop for awhile, but never really was interested in the brand. But when I saw one of my favorite youtubers put one of their lippie stix in their monthly favorites I had to check it out. The price tag didn't hurt one bit, the lip sticks and lip liners are all $5 so it shouldn't hurt to try right???
Yep! I absolutely love these lip products and i've only played around with them for a couple of days. I bought two Lip sticks in shades Julep and Flawless. I bought two lip liners in shades BFF 3 and Bichette. I absolutely love the colors, they are very pigmented and long lasting. The smell reminds me of M.A.C. lipsticks but a tiny bit sweeter, so if smells are a turnoff for you, this might not be the product for you. The only con for me is the packaging. I'm a sucker for packaging and this isn't something to call home to mama about. Not that it's extremely bad, it's just very cheap looking. But when you are paying $5 dollars for a product, you get what you are paying for where packaging is concerned. Other than that, I love this product. It's very pigmented and long lasting plus there is a wide range of colors to choose from. Go here to check out the line.
Foundation Review time!
So I've heard about the Fit Me foundation for a long time. When it first came out I heard dozens of great reviews for it, but was never bothered to try it out for myself. Speed up to this year when this line came out and I was definitely interested. The reviews were less than stellar, people either hated it or loved it.
I've tried the foundation multiple times, yesterday I tested it out to the fullest, ALL DAY! And....it didn't last. Not that it promises to be an all day wearing foundation, I have yet to find a foundation that actually lasts all day. The things I liked about the foundation is that it is light weight, It feels so good on the skin. You can also get medium coverage with the foundation and if you layer it up, it won't feel too caky and leave your skin feeling gross. It also applies very smoothly and evenly which is cool, it settles into your skin pretty quickly as well. Your skin also does look pretty flawless.
The negatives about the foundation: It does not keep you matte! I've used the foundation multiple times and did not keep me matte, I used a primer and makeup setting spray and nothing worked, so that's a huge negative. It also doesn't look very natural. I'm not used to foundations with as much coverage as this one, so if you use higher coverage foundations then this might not be a con for you. But it didn't look natural at all to me.
Overall, I will not be repurchasing this foundation. I don't think that this foundation is horrible, but it's not worth repurchasing. Share your thoughts below....

I'm now going on a hair journey!
I decided a couple of months ago to get healthier and longer hair. Last year I cut off a couple of inches of my hair, and while that may not seem like a lot to many, it didn't even seem like that much to me at the time but it motivated me to grow out my hair and see how long I could get it. So right now i'm moisturizing my hair all the time, at least once a day. I also wash my hair at least once a week, and I only put heat in my hair twice a month. I'm just starting out with my journey, so if you have any suggestions for products I should use for relaxed hair then let me know! i'm always open for more suggestions! and I will continue to update you on my hair and how it's going. Here are some of the products that i'm using now! I will go in detail about the products that I use and techniques I use on my hair as time goes on! let's get ready to go on this little adventure together (I'm too corny lol).
