meg's february favorites.

Though February was a short month, a lot of products got a lot of lovin'. No shame in my game. Well, maybe a little. Without further adieu, some more stuff I like.

+ Benefit's Hoola Bronzer
Since I started on this cosmetic journey, I was pretty determined not to get a ticket to the Hoola train. Everyone raved about it. I wrote it off because I don't like to get burned by cool products that aren't that cool. Plus I was convinced it was too light for my skin tone. I entered a serious relationship with Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil & I thought it was forever. Until, whilst wandering Ulta, I compared Hoola to Milk Chocolate Soleil. Hoola is darker. I nearly fell over (because makeup is serious business, apparently.) Bought it. Love it. Forever will be my bronzing mate (until I find something better.) It's not too orange or muddy. It blends like a dream. Fake that tan until you make it, boosnap.

+ Bath & Body Works Cheers to Capri 3 Wick Candle
I've put my evergreen & cozy scents on the shelf to make room for fruity, beach-y goodness. With a million coupons in hand, I stocked up on Bath & Body Works new spring line & they win all of the things in my book with Cheers to Capri. It's like lemonheads in a jar. Just give me a lemonade & a beach. Okay, thanks.

+ Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Natural Beauty
Freaking Estée rules my cosmetic life & I knew that I couldn't refuse Tarte's blushes after she posted her review. I don't normally gravitate towards reds or berry-toned blushes. I'm all about that coral & bronze life. I decided to be a risk taker (blushes are risky business) & purchase Natural Beauty which is a deep, strawberry tone. Picture this: bombshell at the gym, just got her workout on & her natural flush is stunning. She is healthy & she is a babe. That is not me. I am that sweaty, pale person that doesn't even know what it would be like to be naturally flushed. UNTIL, this blush. It's the perfect "healthy" tone & it lasts forever. Long day a work, followed by school & even until you fake your flush at the gym, it's still winning at being a blush. Dare I say it's my favorite formulation I own thus far? I dare.

+ Murad's Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++
I'm sort of an oil factory when the weather surpasses 45 degrees but only down my T zone. With my weirdy, ever changing, combination skin type, I normally avoid daily moisturizers. I received a sample of Murad's Mattifer & it is just what I have been needing. It doesn't break me out & it soothes any current blemishes. It's quite a dry cream which sounds stupid, I know. It's not overly wet & doesn't leave a gross, dewy residue on your skin. It absorbs into the skin & doesn't over hydrate your face. For your oily ladies, this might be your winner. 

+ Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque
I color my hair. I use heat on it e'ry day. I'm probably not my hairs favorite person. So, I bought it a treat & my hairs love it. I slather my ends in this masque weekly & suddenly my hair is behaving.

+ Eyelash Extentions from Extentions by Lindy
Eyelash extentions are a little bit like crack. Well, I assume it's like crack because I don't know. Regardless, lash extentions are addicting. I went to Lindy through high school & she's a bit of a lash wizard. After I got married, we rearranged our finances & I said goodbye to my lashes. McKay gifted me with a set of extensions for Valentine's day & YUM, I'll never stop. I sound like an addict. Here's the thing: no more mascara fuss & you'll always look a bit like a lady even if you are a hot mess. It's great.  If you are in Utah Valley & looking for someone who is talented/wonderful in every way, Lindy is your girl.


lexi's february favorites.

Hi peeps!
Here are my 5 favorite things that I was obsessed with in February.

1) Naked 3 Palette:
I was gifted this palette for Valentines day from my girls and I almost peed myself with excitement. I LOVE IT. I have the naked 2 already but I always am reaching for my Naked 3. The colors are just FABBULLOOUUSS, and Urban Decay’s quality is just dah bomb.

2) Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment:
I recently got a mini ombre this month and to be honest with you it murdered my ends. I had already been using Moroccan oil daily but it because it makes my dry hair happy. I put it on the ends of my hair after I get out of the shower or during the day if they start looking to cray cray. It’s a miracle worker.

3)Philosophy Purity Face Wash:
I have had this facewash up in my cabinets for a while- I have currently been obsessed with lush so I put all my other products on the backburner. I thought I’d try it out again and it was a match made in heaven. My skin can be pretty sensitive to face washes and this one is super gentle but also gets the job done. Props Philosophy. (I also still love lush. LUSH 4 LYFE)

4) Pink Plaid by Mac:
What can I say i’m obsessed with pink. I have been wearing this matte color by mac all month. It stays on forever and doesn’t dry out too bad like most matte lipsticks. Mac always wins in the lipstick department. TWO THUMBS UP.

5) Cuptakes phone cases:
I am a cheap person. I like cheap things. My phone has been living in a crappy case for it’s whole life. Poor thing. Anyways I thought it was time for an upgrade because of the many times that I have dropped my phone I thought it had shattered because of it’s lack of protection. Meg & I were shopping at our local homegoods and there was the cutest cuptakes case on sale! I had to get it. It’s cute, and my phone is like “Hey thanks for taking care of me.” and I’m like, “no problem dude.”


recent happenings.

Oh, hello again.

We sort of fell off the face of the planet. The longest story, turned into a tiny, incorrect sentence: our company shut down, unemployed, stress, other personal weirdness, third party deleted our blog & youtube channel, recovered blog (obviously), attempting to recover our youtube channel, both employed again (hooray!) & here we are.

Moving forward, we'll be posting more posts & when we sort out the youtube fiasco, our videos will be coming back as well.

Until next time, have the loveliest day.



Lookbook : Valentine's Day + Single Awareness Outfits (we're not single but we're trying to be relatable. Sue us.)

Whether you like it or not, Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Perhaps you are prepping for a steamy date or just a cozy, girls night at home, we've got you covered. Here are some outfits that we put together for the 14th.

PS. Meg here, hello.
I don't do fashion well. Most of the time I just lounge in my post-sweaty gym clothes. CUTE. We had planned on filming this because we have schedule (LOOK AT HOW FANCY WE ARE.) It snowed because well, utah's weather does that so I put on clothes (surprise, surprise.) I wasn't planning on being in the lookbook but we threw it in anyway. So, that's a real life outfit.
