Pantone Color of the Year for 2015

IMG_6631.PNG

Hey Beauty Scholars! Pantone debuted the color of the year for 2015. What do you think? It’s called Marsala and the inspiration behind the color is to enrich the mind, body and soul.

I think it’s definitely a great color for all skin tones and it will work well as an accent color in everyday life. I think I’m going to glam this color for 2015. What about you? Are you going to glam it or slam it? Tell me in the comments below! MUAH

Kohl’s Gets a Beauty Upgrade

A few weeks ago during my small shopping spree, I popped in to Kohl’s and to my surprise I see a revamped beauty department with a beauty advisor doing a makeover and some new beauty brands too. I was shocked and in awe of the new beauty re-do of Kohl’s. I mean… who knew?

IMG_5739

IMG_5741Now I was familiar with the clothing department update but Kohl’s has now stepped up the beauty game! A few years ago the beauty department started with a few new and unknown Estee Lauder for Kohl’s brands like American Beauty. Now, they have added beauty brands like The Balm, H2O Plus, Lorac and Essie just to name a few. In addition to the more well know brands, they have also added Simply Vera Wang, Elle and Katy Perry. Which all seem to be exclusive to Kohl’s as I have not seen them in any other beauty department but I could be wrong.

IMG_5737

IMG_5738Overall, I am quite impressed but a little sad because I didn’t have time to browse a lot longer and perhaps do a little damage by overindulging with beauty products. Kohl’s beauty department get ready because I will return soon and we will get to know one another very well on my next beauty play date 🙂

So Beauty Scholars, what do you say? Are you excited about the Kohl’s beauty makeover? Have you had a beauty play date there or will you be making one soon? My inquiring mind wants to know…a smooch for your thoughts! MUAH

Liebster Award Nominee

liebster-award

I have a passion for blogging and beauty is my lifestyle, so when I received an email from Ali at Moms Explore Virginia Beach stating that she nominated me for a Liebster Blogging Award, I was excited and ready to participate! Thank you Ali for the wonderful nomination!

A Liebster Award is an award given via the Internet from another blogger to recognize and/or discover new bloggers. It also allows readers to get to know the blogger from a different point of view by the blogger answering informal random questions presented by the blogger who nominated the nominee. In return, the nominee pays it forward by nominating eleven bloggers for the award.

So, without further ado, here are my answers to Ali’s questions!

1. What do you love most about blogging?

I love all things beauty and writing. Blogging offers the best of both worlds for me and allows me to share my love with anyone who seeks information about beauty products, services or events

2. What is your favorite dessert food?

It’s a three-way tie depending on my mood of Tres leches cake, bread pudding, and chocolate chip ice cream.

3. What is the best parenting advice you ever received?

There are two things in life you never run for…a bus and a boy because there will always be another one coming!

4. What habit would you like to break?

My craving for sweets after every meal

5. If you could go on any vacation, where would you go and why?

I would go to Hawaii because it is so cold and snowy in Chicago and I need some sun and a beach. This is the third worst winter in history for the city 🙂

6. What is your favorite Television show?

Scandal – what other is there? LOL

7. What App on your smart phone (if you have a smart phone) do you use the most?

It’s a tie between instagram and twitter.

8. What is your favorite season: summer, fall, winter, or spring, and why?

Summer is my favorite season because my birthday is in June 🙂

9. What is the last book you read?

You lost me @ hello by Donna Smith Bellinger This is a must read!

10. How do you take your coffee/tea?

I don’t drink coffee and I love green tea with honey

11. Which movie star, musician, or artist would you love to meet?

I would love to meet Oprah to get some advice and listen to her wisdom

I really enjoyed answering the questions. If you have a question you would like to ask me, add a comment to the comment section of this post and I will be sure to answer! MUAH

SHEfinds Sample Saturday – Enter to Win

Today is Sample Saturday with SHEfinds.com via Beauty School Scarlet!

The brand for the giveaway is Tarte Cosmetics and here’s a look at the products that you have a chance of winning!

IMG_2941

Tarte: Lights, Camera, Lashes™ 4-in-1 Mascara: A lengthening, curling, volumizing, and conditioning mascara infused with olive esters to condition, treat, and protect lashes. It retails for $19.

The Glam: Long lush lashes with definition! It can easily removed with a makeup wipe and it does not irritate my eyes!

The Slam: Nothing…I love it 🙂

IMG_2943

Cheek Stain: The stain that started it all. Tarte’s award-winning and best-selling cheek stain gives you a gorgeous, natural flush in a gel or cream consistency. Rounded top cheek stains are gel based stains, while flat top cheek stains are the cream based version. It retails for $30.

The Glam: It goes on smooth and sheer with a hint of color or you can enhance the shade by adding more. I like it because it is natural and easy to use.

The Slam: The packaging is like a push up Popsicle and if you push too much (like me) LOL…you can’t push it back down and the top will not screw all the way on. I suggest you give it a little nudge!

IMG_2942

Overall, I love my gifts from sheFinds and Tarte! I will add them to my makeup bag and wear them often.
