  1. That lipsync battle video is killing me! Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. I LOVED Bee and PuppyCat! It's too cute and funny.

    I'm really tempted to try out Paula's Choice for skincare especially the exfoliator and cleanser.

    1. I'm really excited for the next episodes of Bee and Puppycat! I wish I had money when they did the kickstarter campaign!
      Paula's Choice is my "go to" for skin care at the moment. Sign up for their newsletters if you're interested in purchasing stuff. They have sales all the time!

  3. Bee & Puppy Cat has to be one of my most FAVORITE finds on YouTube this past year!!!
    Is it bad that I'm 100% ready for a tattoo? (I know I'll wait a bit, but I already have some ideas!

    That Urban Decay Foundation sounds interesting. I LOVE their brand.

    But you appear to be a real big fan of "Paula's Choice"...checking that out now!

    1. Um, there is no shame in being ready for a tattoo. I may or may not have been debating one as well!
      Their Naked foundation has sheer coverage, but it is definitely buildable! I really want to give their pressed powders a go.
      Paula's Choice is definitely a favorite of mine for skin care, plus they have sales pretty much all of the time!


I always appreciate all of your comments! Thank you so much for supporting my blog. <3
