How to Downsize Bulky Makeup Sets!

Happy Sunday! Over the past few years (Christmas specifically), I've received larger makeup gift sets from friends and family. While I love how much product you can get out of these, sometimes the packaging is so unrealistic. For example, I received this really pretty makeup set from Ulta with tons of eyeshadows, bases, liners, blushes and bronzers from my brother this year. I was playing around with some of the products and I really loved the formulation but I knew I couldn't take this thing out of the house when traveling. I really wanted to figure out a way to be able to use these products on the go so I started to do some research and found the perfect (inexpensive) solution!

Slow Cooker Creamy Tortellini + Chicken Soup

If you live in the states, you know the northeast is currently being pounded by Winter Storm Jonas. I actually can't even see out my window right now! It's currently 4:30pm where I live and we already have 15.3 inches of snow (:O) and it's not stopping until at least 1am.

You're probably wondering why I'm telling you this (it's not for sympathy, I promise hehe.) When I heard the storm was coming I knew I wanted to whip up a slow cooker meal that was hearty, warm and made leftovers that would last a while. Queue my favorite tortellini soup!

Amazing Affordable Brushes | Be You, Beautifully

Hi guys! So a few weeks ago I somehow managed to forget two of my travel makeup bags at a hotel I was staying at. When I called, the said they couldn't find them so I lost everything I had in them which was depressing as one of them contained my makeup brushes and a brand new BeautyBlender (meh). This happened right before the holidays and I didn't to have time to go to a store or to wait for them to get shipped as my original set was back ordered, so Amazon Prime it was.

I was a little skeptical ordering brushes from Amazon, but I didn't have many choices at that point. My boyfriend has a Prime account and it was free overnight shipping SO yeah, I took the chance and I'm so happy I did!

My Blog Goals for 2016

Welp, I'm already off to a great start to 2016. Wanted to get this up yesterday, buuuut life happens haha. Anyways, I saw a bunch of these posts going around Bloglovin' so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon.

I was debating doing a resolution post, but figured it was too similar to my 365 Days to a More Inspired You post. I'd say 99% of my resolutions can be found there :)

I'm hoping this post will help me keep my blog in shape and help it to continue to grow this year. Let me know of your goals in the comments and if you have any tips to help me with mine!
