When I was studying abroad in Italy, Kiko Cosmetics became both mine and my friend’s favorite place to shop. I made a few purchases at Kiko, but by far the best is the Kiko Cosmetics Eyebrow Marker in Shade 3 (€5,90).
I love the formula of this brow marker- it gets the perfect natural brow without any fuss. I haven’t been able to live without it since September! My first pen wore out after about 5 months, but I’m hoping I can last a while with this one. Apparently shade 3 is meant for blondes and redheads, but I think it suits me just fine. The marker is so easy to use to get the perfect brow look.
I wish I had all of the other shades to test in an unlimited supply, because this product is that good…BUT, there are no stores in California! Luckily there are a few stores in the U.S., but no online store. So, if you live in Miami, Connecticut, New Jersey, or New York, consider it your lucky day! Run, don’t walk, to pick up this brow marker & don’t forget to grab me one!
Today I’m switching things up and doing a more personal video- which I look forward to doing more of soon! I use Tinder a lot to meet guys and (hopefully) try to date. Not sure how it’s going to work out, but at least I get some funny messages to entertain the world with…
Do you use dating apps? What’s the strangest thing you’ve heard?
I, like many others have issues falling asleep. I think it’s due to the fact that I’m somewhat of a night owl and can’t seem to get off of my phone for a long period of time.
I was introduced to RESCUE Sleep Liquid Melts ($9.99) recently, and they have made falling asleep that much easier! These homeopathic melts were developed my a doctor to help you stress less and sleep easier. They also have RESCUE Pearls, Gum & Pastilles for natural stress relief. They are available at CVS, Walgreens, Whole Foods, and Sprouts in the U.S.- I couldn’t find the stress products, but I really want to try! The sleep melts really work- I took these at 8:30 and had to be in bed at 10:30- they work quicker than I thought!
But, for those of you that don’t want to use a product to help you sleep, here are a few of my tips to make falling asleep at night easier.
Use A Sleep Mask: If you need to be in pitch black like I do, a sleep mask helps a lot! I just bought a cheap one off of eBay because it was cute. But, there are more heavy-duty ones that will make it as pitch black as possible!
Avoid Caffeine: If you’re a soda, coffee, or tea lover- try using caffeine-free alternatives in the afternoon. That mid-day cup of coffee may be keeping you up at night!
Turn Off Technology: Try to tune out an hour or two before bed- the bright lights stimulate your brain. If you can’t live without your phone like I can, turn the brightness down a bit.

I’m sorry I’ve been a little MIA lately on YouTube (and on my blog)! But, last week my blog got hacked, and I thought I was going to lose everything I have posted in the last 4 years. After a minor freakout and some tears were shed, I was able to locate and delete the infected files and we’re back up and running! So, here’s a video I filmed 2 weeks ago and had planned on posting and the beginning of this week- better late than never!
I did some major haul damage, so I figured you guys would like to see it!
I really wanted to try ColourPop Cosmetics after hearing so many good things from a ton of YouTubers and bloggers. I picked up a few lippie stix, pencils, and super shock shadows to try out. I’ll have a first impressions and review of them in a few weeks- the video’s already been filmed! Kinda bummed I placed my order before the blushes came out…maybe next time!
One of the biggest trends to pop up in 2014 and 2015 is matte liquid lipsticks. LA Splash Cosmetics came out with 2 different lines of matte lip products so I had to give them a try. I plan on doing a review of these eventually too, after I get the black one my friend bought for me!
I hauled major skincare at Sephora because I really want my skin to shine and have as few breakouts as possible. My skin was pretty much perfect in Italy because it was so humid, but coming back to smoggy LA definitely changed my skin back to it’s normal acneic self.
I got a few candles and hand sanitizers at Bath & Body Works. For someone who regularly uses public transportation and the gym, it seems crazy that I don’t carry hand sanitizer! I picked up a few manly-scented candles as well, because #singlegirlprobs.
And lastly, a little #humblebrag of a haul from Old Navy Active. I have lost about 45 pounds since May 2014 and needed more workout clothes. Also, I want people to ask me any weight loss questions they may have so I can do a video about it!
So anyways, that’s my wordy explanation of my haul if you didn’t want to watch it all- it was pretty long! But, I picked up a lot of exciting things and I think you guys will love reading my future reviews! Until then…
Sometimes we have those outfits where we just can’t get away with underwear with…it may be some leggings, a body-clinging dress, or your favorite pair of jeans. The last thing we want is a ruined outfit just from the sight of a visible panty line! So, why don’t we #GoCommando?
