2017 Favorites (Cruelty-Free)

Favorites, Product reviews
What a year. I’m going to post my 2017 reflection and 2018 goals separately, but I’ll say right now that this year has been both challenging and rewarding in so many ways. I’m also happy to be spending my last night of 2017 at home making videos and writing instead of out partying. Woohoo! This year was an interesting year for me with makeup and skincare. I barely bought any makeup, instead doing one big purge in the middle of the year and another over the next couple days. I learned a lot about skincare and got quite a few products to try, but even then, I didn’t get all that much. This is the first year since I started to wear makeup that I spent so little. I feel…

Hi, everyone! It's been a while since I've posted, but I've got a good reason. We adopted a dog! I'll show her off in the video, but here are some photos... As you can see, she's been having a pretty happy life with us so far! I have a Vine account I was using to post videos of the other cute animals in my family, but now Maya's taken over.
