Let's get started!
7 Facts About Me:
  1. I have a horrible cat allergy. I did not know this until I moved in with my husband 8 years ago. He had an old cat in his house and it caused me to break out in hives and my eyes swelled. It was awful. So needless to say, I don't like cats.
  2. When I was in the 3rd grade I wrote a story and sent it to Highlights magazine and they published it. I still have the magazine and the article.
  3. I am half Sardinian. My dad's family is from Sardinia, a small island off the coast of Sicily. On my mom's side of the family, I am part Cherokee Indian and Welsh. 
  4. I love Hello Kitty! I have been in love with and collected Hello Kitty stuff since I was 10. Hello Kitty is so cute, simple, and very girly.
  5. I was in a Dairy Queen television commercial. I went in Dairy Queen years ago and they were filming a commercial and the owner asked me to be in the commercial.
  6. Before I was married, I competed in beauty pageants. I still love to watch beauty pageants and I plan on competing in Mrs. pageants. I just love all the glamour and beauty!
  7. I wanted to name my oldest son Atticus, after Atticus Finch in To Kill A Mockingbird. But, my husband loved the name Jackson. I also love the names Sebastian, Oskar, and Phillip for boys.

So i'm always looking to try new hairstyles to sport in the summer months, these are my favorite pins for summer hair.

Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.

Review: Too Faced Teddy Bear Brush Set

By request, here is my very first beauty product review.

This lovely brush set is the Teddy Bear Hair Brush Set by Too Faced Cosmetics, $65 on I've always been a fan of Too Faced, there products are great and I love how they package and market their products. So of course I was very excited to receive this brush set. This set comes with 5 makeup brushes and a bag to carry them. I love tge bag, I see myself using it for something else; i dont like tge idea of makeup brushes being loose in a bag. The set includes a large powder brush and 4 brushes for the eyes, contour, blender, all over shadow and liner.

The brushes as expected, are super soft. They really feel like a soft teddy bear! I also loved that they printed the name of the brush on the handle, so you could always know what each brush is for. So after using the brushes to apply my makeup here are my thoughts:

Powder Brush: This is my new favorite big brush! I don't wear powder but I used it for a blush brus…
