What's In My Makeup Bag?

You have already seen what's inside my bag. Now lets see what's in my makeup bag!

Every other month or so, I would do a clean up of my makeup bag. Reason? I pack the essentials to grab and go but I end up with items taken out or added in. Eventually leading to a pouch full of miscellaneous. I took my makeup pouch straight from my purse, so everything shown is a view of what was currently left before cleaning. Tons of unexpected findings so let's get started!

Influenster is an online community of trendsetters, social media masterminds, and educated consumers who provide opinions of products and experiences. They give active members invitations to participate in exclusive "VoxBox" programs which includes receiving complimentary products to test and review. In exchange to sharing their opinions throughout social media.

Within participation, there are also digital challenges, twitter parties, and contests that can win you awesome prizes. I recently won a MegaVoxBox from the #imPressManicure Twitter party. So I was ecstatic when I saw a big pink box in the mail from Influenster. And I thought it would be nice to share what I received. "Because if you win something, but no one knows about it... did you really even win?"

Rimmel London Natural Bronzer


I heard lots of great things about the Rimmel London Natural Bronzer. I just happened to be browsing around my local drugstore and saw that they were on sale at $4.99 (regular price: $9.99). So, I decided to give it a go and join the bandwagon of contouring! This is my first bronzer and may I say, I LOVE IT! However, prior to purchase, I had to pick a shade. Thinking the shades on the shelves were in order from lightest to darkest, I realized there was no order. Talk about disorganization! I was hoping there were testers on display, I was out of luck. I had to trust my eyes on this one. When I finally found the shade I thought I was looking for, I peaked at the rack below and noticed they were matte and not shimmer (Sunshimmer ShimmeringMaxi Bronzer). I'm a natural girl and I like my makeup neutral. Adding shimmer on my face is the last thing I want. Guess which one I picked up?

Easy Way To Peel A Mango

Mangoes are a delicious fruit and I can eat them all day long!...

Hyperbole aside, nothing beats having a delicious mango in the summer time. But getting to the fruit can be a challenge. There are countless ways to get there, however. One would be using a paring knife and another would be the "hedgehog" style. Unless you're like me, I have trouble using a paring knife and the "hedgehog" style can get messy. And I'm sure there are tons of other ways that can be found online. But the method I use since I was little is THE easiest (and possibly the only) way I know how that won't be troublesome.

Here's the method to peeling the skin of a mango that I swear by. Follow along and let's get started!
