2014 Favorites

December 16, 2014

There are a lot of “beauty guru” YouTube trends I don’t understand. For example, haul videos. Are you not just showing off how much money you’ve spent? Because in most cases (I’m sure there are exceptions) these videos involve the person going through their shopping bags to show all the products they’ve just bought and are OMGSOEXCITED to try. Meaning they haven’t used them yet and can’t actually tell us anything about the products. Yawn.

But I live for the favorites videos because that’s how I make my list of products I want to try. I can’t tell you how many hours of my life I’ve spent watching favorites videos. I don’t actually want to know. Anyway, a friend of mine requested I make my own favorites video and since it’s the end of the year I figured I might as well just go ahead with my favorites from the whole year (some people actually make monthly favorites, I just don’t have the range). So it’s a bit long, but if you’ve ever wondered what I recommend, here you go!

Of course it wasn’t until I finished recording that I realized I’d left out my all time favorite eyeliner so I’ll just make a note here – The Sumita Beauty Kala Contrast Pencil. This is the best eyeliner for your water lines but it’s a dream to work with anywhere. It goes on so smooth and super easy. I’ve been able to get really crisp, thin lines out of it even when it’s almost completely blunt that’s how awesome it is. I can’t believe I left it out!

Anyway, the list of products I mention in the video is over on YouTube so if you decide to click over be sure and subscribe while you’re there. If you don’t feel like watching the whole video at least watch the end so you can find out which one of these products is Latte’s favorite :)


A Peek in My Planner

December 10, 2014

I know, you’re probably wondering why I would bother coming out of a blog break if all I’m going to do is talk about something as boring as a day planner. Believe it or not, someone requested this post! Maybe it’s because I’ve mentioned my planner obsession a few too many times and made people […]

It’s Been A While

December 8, 2014

Oh HEY. This wine and cheese was dedicated to the fact that I have (spoiler alert) unpacked my last box from this year’s move. My new home actually looks like home now instead of the recycling pile and that’s pretty glorious. So what does one do when she’s settled in? I decided to tuck myself into […]

Weekly – What?

September 4, 2014

I’m determined to break Mocha of his newfound camera fear. But I guess you’re probably not here for the selfies, right? In a strange turn of events, I lost 1.5 pounds this week. I shouldn’t say that’s strange, I should see it for what it is – my work is paying off. I say it’s strange […]

Catching Up

September 2, 2014

Well hey. It’s been a minute or two since I last had enough time to put together an actual blog post (gasp). Not that my weekly posts are fake but…they’re a one-sided portrayal of my life. Not that this blog will ever be an accurate depiction of my daily life but you know what I […]

Weekly Check In – August Overall

August 28, 2014

Oh my word, y’all, I just don’t want to deal with this week. I don’t know what to say because I’m just so exhausted right now. I’ve had a terrible time getting on a healthy sleep schedule and I’m sure that’s impacting oh, everything, in my life right now. But everyone gets tired so I […]

Weekly Check In – Tips to Support your Success

August 20, 2014

This was another week where I didn’t see any changes on the scale. That’s discouraging but not necessarily unexpected. I could list the usual reasons why I didn’t see a loss this week but they’re all exactly what you’d imagine. Instead I thought I’d share some of the little things I’ve come up with during the past […]
