The Aerie Real Campaign: Real Awesome

Disclosure: I received compensation as part of my relationship with Quality Blue Community. All opinions expressed are my own. Aerie, American Eagle’s sister store that specializes in selling lingerie, made a very large and noticeable change back in Spring 2014. They decided that their entire ad campaign would feature models with NO airbrushing. No matter how you slice it, this in my opinion is a very powerful campaign. First, it’s...

Zoya Awaken Swatches and Review

It’s so refreshing to see spring colors, especially during this never-ending winter.  Spring has been a tease in 2014, tantalizing coastal South Carolina with 70-degree sunshine days but slamming the door in our faces with cold rain.  I have a lot of respect for people who deal with colder temperatures because I simply cannot deal…living in Florida for 20 years tends to do that. Zoya’s spring 2014 collection is named...

L’Oreal Infallible Burst Into Bloom Eyeshadow Swatches And Review

L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows are loose shadows with high pigmentation, intense colors, and best of all they claim to last 24 hours. Spring 2014 L’Oreal released the Infallible Shadow Butterfly Collection that features 6 new shadows and L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara (that I skipped because I really have too much mascara), but here’s one of the six. I picked up three that caught my eye in Target, but nine times out...

Nicole By OPI Carrie Underwood Swatches And Review

After living in the South for 22 years, there are characteristics easier to acclimate to than others.  For me, the three problematic things were: grits, sweet tea and country music.  I’ve finally warmed up to grits and sweet tea (thanks to Pensacola’s Fish House and Charleston’s Martha Lou’s Kitchen) but country music is still not enjoyable for me. My younger sister in California is a huge country music fan and...
