The Beauty Spotlight Team | Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays gentle reader! Where did the time go? The holidays are happening as I write this and soon, the whole hustle will be over, January will move in and winter will go from magical and festive to a long, cold grind.

Wow. That was cheery. Mama's in a weird mood, today.

Let's just get on with this week's Beauty Spotlight Team post, shall we?

Derma-E The Perfect Travel Kit | Affordable Travel Treats for Beautiful Skin on the Go

Derma-E  The Perfect Travel Kit | Affordable Travel Treats for Beautiful Skin on the Go 1

If you are planning a winter vacation or weekend getaway or just need a great little bag of skin care treats to keep in your backpack, shower kit or tote to help keep your skin beautiful on the go I have just the thing for you. 

Derma-E  The Perfect Travel Kit | Affordable Travel Treats for Beautiful Skin on the Go 2

I recently received the Derma-E Perfect Travel Kit in the mail and it is  just too cute for words. There is a makeup bag that is big enough to hold your to go skin care necessities as well as some makeup and other stuff.

The skin care included in the Derma-E Perfect Travel Kit are snack sized Purifying Daily Detox Scrub, Vitamin C Concentrated Serum and Hydrating Night Cream. There is also a little travel mirror that is as cute as it is handy to have at the ready.

At only $10.99, the Derma-E Perfect Travel Kit is affordable, cute and the best little travel companion. I kind of wanted to keep mine but, since I'm not planning to do any travelling in the near future, I decided to gift my set to someone as an extra special surprise little goody in a recent giveaway prize package.

Derma-E Skin care is cruelty free, vegan, GMO free, soy free, gluten free. All products are in recyclable packaging and are produced in a facility with wind energy certificates.

Are you a fan of Derma-E skin care? What are your favorites?

12 Last Minute Beauty Gift and Stocking Stuffer Ideas from Amazon

Yep. I did just one more gift guide. This one is my 12 Last Minute Beauty Gift and Stocking Stuffer Ideas from Amazon. I know... It's weird but I'm trying to be a better blogger. I'm probably way behind on how these are done, now. Honestly, I haven't been paying attention and that is my next goal, pay better attention to how the better bloggers are doing things and affect some changes.

When putting this guide together, I tried to pick a mix of beauty goodies that I really enjoy and an item or two that I'd like to have, in the future, These are beauty products that are a little more budget friendly and all available with Prime shipping so that they should arrive in plenty of time, as long as you order by the cutoff date. I hope that you find this and my other gift guide helpful while you are wrapping up your holiday shopping.

Seven Day Black and White Photo Challenge Wrap Up

Seven Day Black and White Photo Challenge Wrap Up

There has been a fun challenge going around for a few years. The Seven Day Black and White Photo Challenge is simple; seven days, one black and white photograph of an everyday object each day. No people, no pets, no explanations. I have done this challenge, before and I usually post the photos on my personal Facebook but this time, I thought that it would be fun to do it on my Instagram and I thought that it would be fun to do a wrap up blog post about it, as well.

If you would like to see my seven photos from this challenge, please read on. In the spirit of the original challenge, I am only captioning my photographs with the day order in which they were posted.

Top Ten Beauty Storage Gift Ideas from Amazon

The holiday gift shopping season is in full swing and because Thanksgiving hit a little later, this year it's shorter than usual. A shorter shopping season means less time to get all of our gift shopping done so it's time to hustle up and get to it!

Today, I'm sharing my Top Ten Beauty Storage Ideas from Amazon. These are skin care, makeup, nail polish and brush storage items in price points from super affordable to a... little bit spendy that I feel would make perfect holiday gifts for any beauty enthusiast on your list or a little something special with which you can treat yourself. All of these items are Amazon Prime eligible so if you have prime, they will ship for free and ship fast, so your gifts should arrive for your holiday giving, provided that you order before the final cutoff date.

Thanksgiving is next week then, it's full tilt right into the Holiday Season and the New Year! Yikes! I don't know about you, but I'm no where near ready. I'll get it all done, I always do but I'm just taking my time, this year. I guess that I want to slow down a little, really enjoy rather than go all chicken-with-my-head-cut-off-wild. Maybe that's a good thing?

Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick 2 in Dance Floor Princess and JK Magic | Do They Live Up to the Hype?

Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick 2 in Dance Floor Princess and JK Magic | Do They Live Up to the Hype?

Because I'm Crazy


Have you ever done something as crazy as to buy two... Not just one, but two expensive lipsticks based on packaging and presentation, alone, not knowing if you're going to love the formula and colours? I did. I bought two beautiful new Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips 2 lipsticks before I knew if I would like the colours in person or if the formula would work for me. Curious to know if these lipsticks live up to the hype? Keep reading.

The Beauty Spotlight Team | Pre Holiday Edition!


It's time for our weekly Beauty Spotlight Team, Pre Holiday Edition post. Let's get started, shall we?

Fashion Flash | Pre Holiday Edition



The holidays swiftly approach and if you celebrate and are anything like me, it's time to gear up and get ready. Confession, I've already started decorating outside. We still need to put up a couple of things, then that will be done. Then the indoor chaos begins. I think that I'm going to start with the tree, this year. I have been wanting one of those pre flocked, fancy trees with the various sized, fluffy branches and tips and I found the perfect one, during Michael's "Pre Black Friday" tree sale. Seven footer, pencil profile (perfect for condo dwellers, like us) prelit, half off. Yeah, baby! Mama's got a new Christmas tree. I can't wait to put it up and decorate it! It's going to be so pretty. Have you begun your holiday prep, yet or do you wait until after Thanksgiving or until December? Please, do tell.

This week, Fashion Flash is hosted by our fabulous Cindy over at Prime Beauty. Head on over to enjoy the best in beauty, fashion, fitness and wellness, home decor and lifestyle from savvy 40+ bloggers and podcasters.

Eight Disappointing Beauty Products that I Regret Buying

Eight Disappointing Beauty Products that I Regret Buying
Bad beauty buys; yeah, they happen to all of us. We fall for the hype, we trust reviews, we trust our own research and instincts or we make an impulse buy, thinking that we are picking up just the right thing and it backfires on us. While I don't make a lot of bad beauty buys as I am pretty familiar with what usually works well for me and I try not to buy too many items on impulse, every now and again, a product that I thought was going to be so good turns around and bites me in the ass. 

In this post, I'm sharing eight beauty products that were a disappointment to me and that I regret buying. If you're curious about what beauty goodies just didn't cut it, read on.

How I Use the Airelle Skin Care Intense Hydrator to Meet the Needs of My Very Dry Skin!  7



give your moisturizer a boost

A few years ago, I was introduced to the concept of a "hydrating serum" a multitasking product that is both treatment and a lightweight hydrator that delivers powerful, active skin care ingredients right to the skin's surface while it gives a boost to the moisturizer to be applied after. I fell in love with that concept when I witnessed the way that my complexion responded and since, I've kept various hydrating serums in my daily skin care rotation. Read on to learn how the Airelle Age Defying Intense Hydrator is playing the part of a hydrating serum for me while it is meeting the needs of my very dry skin.

Trying Out the Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder


As an avid fan of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders, I was intrigued by the new-ish Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder and I really wanted to try it out but I wasn't interested in blowing $46.00 on a powder that my skin might not like. Happily, they have a travel size for a very reasonable $20.00 so I bought the smaller one and got to trying it out.
