LUSH: First Impressions


If there is one brand besides the typical drugstore, Sephora and department store brands that is absolutely raved about by beauty bloggers, it's LUSH Cosmetics! I had never heard of it until I started reading beauty blogs and following beauty vloggers on YouTube. In fact, I also noticed around this time that there is a section in my local Macy's cosmetics department at the mall.

After researching the cult-favorites for over a year now, I finally tried out some of the products. The sales woman took me around showing me all the favorites ranging from skincare to haircare to bath products. They even have a makeup line too, but if I'm honest, I'm not really interested in any of it.

Tarte 'the stand outs' limited-edition kit

Tarte 'the stand outs' limited-edition best-sellers kit

This Tarte kit retails for $24 and is such an amazing deal! Since it was a gift I gave to my sister for Christmas, I was able to try everything out myself before she left to fly back to where she lives. I was SO impressed by this kit! I've always been a Tarte fan, having owned a shade of the LipSurgence, Maracuja sets, and the Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara.

I'm back!

After a BUSY semester at school to kick off my senior year, I'm finally on my winter break with time that I've been able to dedicate to revamping the design of my blog.  I changed the color scheme and created a logo of my own on Adobe InDesign, which I learned in my PR publications course this fall.

While it's hard to know what spring semester will bring, my class schedule allows me some extra time to get my blog back up-and-running. I will be planning out my posts in advance and publish 2-3x/week to start out. I'll be focusing on beauty, while also having occasional fashion-related posts (hauls, sales, coupon codes, etc), travel, health/food and intern advice posts --- the areas I would consider myself to be pretty savvy in! ;)

I am very open-minded to the direction of this blog, but without my readers, it will not become anything at all! Please feel free to ask questions, give your suggestions/opinions and request posts.

Wish me luck! xx
