Plus that glow from the sunset is pretty dreamy! After a day hanging out by the pool, I slipped into this comfy maxi dress and went sans makeup for the rest of the evening. I found this maxi dress at Target a few weeks ago. The price tag said it was its ...

BEAUTY BABBLE// SEPHORA SHEET MASKS

My obsession with face masks continue! Lately I have felt that my skin needed some extra TLC. While shopping at Sephora, I figured I would try out their sheet masks. Each one is $6 and has a different purpose. I grabbed a few that would sootheΒ my dull and tired skin. Anyone else have fun putting sheet masks on?

BEAUTY BABBLE// HIGHLIGHTERS

I’ve been using the NARS Albatross as a highlighter for quite some time now. Don’t get me wrong, I love the highlight and glow it gives my skin, but I wasn’t completely satisfied. I wanted a highlighter that made glow from within. I’ve seen really good reviews on the Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter, so I gave it a try. All I can say is WOW! This stuff is no joke! I feel like my skin looks radiant ...
