TheBalm Haul & Swatches

For many reasons San Francisco California is near and dear to my heart. So naturally I was very excited when TheBalm, a San Fran born company put on a flash sale benefiting children in the Bay area. The sale was 50% off everything site wide.  Can you we also talk about the fact that the company’s mascot is a PUG! Wh#@$!

Travel Haulage and Travel Essentials

So I have been hauling excessively lately. I have been traveling a lot too. Unfortunately the traveling hasn’t been for pleasure but moreso for medical reasons. Here are a few of the things I’ve purchased. I’m not going to swatch the Naked palettes unless I get a request from someone, I feel like there are plenty of good swatches out there.
