Favorite Natural and Neutral Lip Combo


Playing around with different lip color and product combinations can create a custom look. To be honest, I don't think I ever where exactly the same combination. When I created this natural neutral lip combo I knew I needed to share it with the world. For this combo I used NYX Waterproof Retractable Lip Liner color Sand Beige to line my lips.

I used assorted faux flat back white and pink pearls in different sizes along with a few clear … [Read more...]

So far I have had the opportunity to cruise on the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas and recently the Carnival Triumph. Both cruise ships have extremely different features. I was actually very surprised to see how different the ships were from each other. Before both cruises I did research, read the cruise forums, and looked up cruise packing lists on Pinterest. After recently sailing on the Carnival Triumph I wanted to share 5 items that I packed that I could … [Read more...]
