/Skin/ First Aid Beauty Fab Faves To Go

this was purchased by me.

I've had good experiences with First Aid Beauty products in the past (I've reviewed some on here) and I like how the brand makes things gentle, fragrance-free, and suitable for sensitive skin types, I wanted to try a complete FAB regime without spending too much money and this seemed like a good deal. I bought a FAB Faves To Go kit for my mom a while ago and she seemed to like it so I decided to pick up one for myself. This stayed tucked away for a while until I went on my trip. Having used all the products in this kit together, as well as finishing some two of them, I'd like to share my thoughts on them with you.

/Make-up/ Revlon GrowLuscious Mascara

this was purchased by me.

I don't know about you, but whenever I'm looking to purchase a new beauty product I tend to look for something to benefit me. Something to care for my skin or lips or in this case my eyelashes. I've been using mascara for almost six years (yes, I was slow to the make-up game...), but I avoided using it because I didn't want to deal with removing it from my lashes every night. I also have a slight fear the overusing eyelash curlers could traumatize my lashes and impede them from growing. Strange notions aside, I picked up this mascara because its "lash enhancing formula improves lashes' overall appearance and condition with every day use." Having used this for about three months, I'm ready to share my thoughts on it.

/People/ Christina Ricci

Sorry for being away for so long...I've been dealing with a few things that need to get done before I leave L.A. in a few months. It's been a while since my last blog post featuring a person I admire for their beauty and style so I thought why not start off May with one?

There has always been a certain allure to Christina Ricci. She can be dark and twisted yet adorable and funny. I remember seeing her for the first time when I watched the firs Addams Family movie. I liked that she was different. Wednesday Addams was scary and surprisingly confident. Christina Ricci portrayed the character well, giving the right amount of deranged to childish charm.

I enjoyed watching her in more light-hearted movies like Now and Then and Casper. She was definitely one of my favorite actresses of the 90s.

She's a wonderfully talented actress who's particularly intelligent. This article I recently read really brought to light how creative and professional she is (she has her own production company!). I had sort of forgotten about Christina Ricci throughout the years as she hasn't been in many films or TV shows lately, but after watching Penelope and Grey's Anatomy on Netflix I was smitten all over again. She doesn't seem to age and every time I see her she reminds me of a doll. A beautiful, petite, age-defying doll. I hope I look that good when I'm 35.

Here are some online articles giving insight to her beauty habits, style inspiration, and life outlook.
