Thank You Video & Happy New Year!

Hi friends!

Well it’s my last post of 2018, so instead of makeup & beauty chat I wanted to give you a short ‘thank you’ video. It’s been an amazing year here on the blog (my first!), and that’s all because of you guys who stop by and show support for my little corner of the internet. I appreciate it so, so much! Without repeating myself much more, please enjoy the following PSA 😉. And of course, Happy New Year!

If you’re interested, I’ve linked all the makeup products I wore in this video below. Unfortunately, the natural light completely washes me out in videos so you can’t see much of the definition. Oh well.

Catch up on my last few blog posts here:

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to you!

I went to the new CoverGirl flagship store in NYC!

Do you have any special plans for New Year’s tonight? I’d love to know!

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to you!

Hi friends!

It’s one more day until Christmas and instead of chatting makeup & beauty today, I wanted to share with you all one of my very favorite Christmas songs. On the spectrum of loving & hating Christmas music, I’m definitely somewhere in the middle. I enjoy it but mainly in small doses, as close to Christmas as possible. I really don’t go for the whole pre-Thanksgiving-Christmas-music-listening, but if you love that go for it. Let’s all do what makes us happy, right?

But enough talking, let’s get to the music! Now I love 80’s music, and I love 80’s pop & rock stars (particularly from the UK & Ireland it seems), so Do They Know It’s Christmas is definitely my kind of song. What’s better than one 80’s pop/rock star? Several of the best!

I hope you all enjoy this time with your friends, family, neighbors, whoever you may be celebrating with! And if you’re not celebrating, cheers to you as well! Let’s all just enjoy this end-of-year downtime before the craziness of the New Year begins.

And because I can’t help myself, here’s another tune for the road! 😆

I’ll be back on Wednesday with another post, but in the meantime Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Xo, Erica

Another look at the Disco Lip Gloss in Groovy. I posted this to Instagram recently and got lots of compliments on the lip color. Isn’t this bright pink color so fun??

Hi friends!

A new video for you today all about two mascaras that have been in my rotation for a while now. I hope you enjoy and get something from this if you’re looking for a new mascara to purchase. Make sure you scroll down after watching the video to see brush & post-application photos.

Without further delay, here we go!

To see the original post where I hauled the Volume + Length Mascara, click here.

To see the original post where I hauled the Lash Slick Mascara, click here.

The Kokie Volume + Length Mascara on left; the Glossier Lash Slick Mascara on right. The Kokie wand is slim with short bristles, and the Glossier wand is a bit thinner with short plastic bristles. The Kokie wand has a lot more product, while the Glossier has much less product.

Kokie Volume + Length Mascara applied on lashes
Kokie mascara. Hopefully you can see that my lashes are thicker & more volumized.

Glossier mascara. Hopefully you can see here how lengthened my lashes are. They are not too thick though.

Shop for the Kokie mascara here.

Have you tried either mascara from this post? If so, what did you think? Which mascaras are in your rotation right now? I’d love to know!
