The Unmentionables

Ever since becoming a beauty blogger, I've noticed that when it comes to featuring favorite products and most-used items, certain things tend to get left out. I like to call them The Unmentionables (like a superhero gang, no?) - you know, those products that are essential to our daily hygiene, but we never really talk about them for fear of embarrassment or people thinking we're weird for needing to deal with certain body issues. Well, today I'm going to step out and share my unmentionable products because maybe some of you have similar hygiene needs...or maybe some of you are just morbidly curious. Either way, here you go. ;)

New Camera!

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you've probably already seen that I got a new camera. I sold my Canon Rebel XS at the beginning of the year because I wasn't really using it, but now that I'm blogging again it became apparent how much I missed using a DSLR. The little point-and-shoot I was using was working okay, but my photos were missing that quality and sharpness that a professional camera provides. I'd been saving up to purchase a Canon Rebel T3i and the lenses I needed, and my incredible parents were generous enough to surprise me with a loan for the remainder of the money I needed and picked the camera up over the weekend for me when I wasn't expecting it. There were definitely tears that morning. ^_^

10 Makeup Brushes Every Girl Needs

Mini LUSH Bath Haul!

Hey babydolls! Today I'm sharing some cute bath bombs and bubble bars that I ordered from LUSH. I've been wanting to try their bath products for a long time, and finally decided to try some out. I've never used bath bombs or bubble bars before, so if you know how to use them please let me know in the comments! :)

Back To School Wishlist

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13

Heading back to school was always one of my favorite times of the year, mainly because of the back-to-school shopping. I loved putting together my "first day of school" outfit and having a new backpack full of cute stationary and accessories. Since I'm no longer in school, I thought it would be fun to create a wishlist of what my ideal first day of school items would be. Gotta have a super cute new outfit, a good notebook, neutral makeup, earbuds, a to-go tumbler for coffee, and a gorgeous backpack to keep it all in!

Did/Do you pick out a special outfit each year for the first year back at school? xoxo Mandy
