An unplanned sample collection

Y'all know I love shopping for makeup and beauty products, and the result of this (besides my heart-broken wallet) is an ever-growing collection of samples - I even have a drawer in my muji case reserved strictly for these little packets and tubes. I'm a big fan of samples because I get to try out new products and brands. The only problem with this unplanned collection is that it's starting to pile up and I keep forgetting to go through it regularly and use up the samples.

I love getting makeup and beauty samples that are deluxe- and travel-sized. The ones that come in little pots, tubes, and jars are my favorite. Some of the samples, though, are either in little packets or they're such a small amount that it's almost not worth it to mess with them. The thought of tossing them in the trash feels so wasteful to me though...is it? Or am I just being a beauty hoarder?

I'm thinking maybe the problem is that I need to use samples as soon as I get them instead of putting them in a drawer and waiting for the "right time" to use them. What are your thoughts on beauty samples? Do you ever use them or do you tend to throw them away? xoxo Mandy

Body Modifications: The Quest For The Perfect Body

I've been watching a lot of Botched lately, and it got me thinking about the crazy obsession with having a perfect body. Most people on the show were needing help with surgeries that got totally screwed up (and of course I think that it is their right to do so), but there were a handful of people that had perfectly beautiful bodies and they were wanting to get plastic surgery done to create unrealistic-looking features and modifications.

Non-Beauty Favorites

Hey cuties! Today I thought it'd be fun to share a roundup of my current non-beauty favorites. I talk a lot about makeup and beauty products here on my blog, so I thought I'd mix it up a bit by sharing different items that I'm loving right now that have nothing to do with beauty. I'd love to know what everyday essentials you're loving right now, definitely let me know in the comments! ^_^

Link Love || August 2014

Well didn't August just fly on by? I don't mind it passing so quickly this time because that means fall and the holidays are that much closer, and after the heat wave we've been dealing with, I'm SO ready for cooler weather and changing leaves.

Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipsticks || Review + Swatches

I have to say, when it comes to makeup I tend to be obsessed with lip products the most. I like to keep my eye makeup pretty tame, so lipsticks and glosses allow me to throw some color in the mix and create a really fun look. I've somewhat recently discovered the Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipsticks thanks to Gigi Gorgeous, and I'm all sorts of crazy over them!

August's Makeup Bag Mix-Up!

For this month's makeup bag, I wanted to keep it very simple and light - no multiples on anything, just one of each (which was super hard to do because I usually have like 5 lip products in my bag at one time). August has definitely been our hottest month here in Missouri, so I went for really light products.

5 Places To Shop For Cute Plus Size Clothing

Rewind to a couple of years ago and it would've been damn near impossible to find any plus size clothing options that didn't look like something your grandma would wear (no offense to any grandmas reading this). It was tough putting together outfits that made you feel pretty and confident - a lot of creativity and resourcefulness was required.
