Review: Nu Evolution Cosmetics + Swatches

Nu Evolution is a natural beauty brand that is fresh on my radar! They sent me a few things to try in early January and I am here to report on my thoughts, plus show you some swatches. They have a high fashion style but without any of the toxic ingredients found in conventional “runway makeup.” They care about beautiful […] Read more…

Mid-Winter Beauty Giveaway!

Organizing my makeup collection has been on my to-do list for a long time, and I am finally getting around to it this month. In stages, that is.

May 2016 Favorites

May was a somewhat turbulent month for me emotionally… I finally stopped posting on Sweet Violet Bride – the blog that consumed all of my time and energy for the last four years but wasn’t turning a profit as I’d hoped. As an entrepreneur it can be so hard to know when to end something. I […] Read more…

Taro is THE shade I’ve been […] Read more…
