A Very Sweet Blog Turns Four

Today is my blog's birthday! It turned FOUR! Here are my blog goals for 2016!

Something Old, Something New 

I didn't get a chance to review everything I purchased (makeup) last year, so look for a mix of both old and new products in 2016. Especially lipsticks, highlighters and contour palettes :)

Curate My Makeup

Since organizing my makeup room, I started curating my makeup on an app called Snupps. I want to continue curating my collection, so I can easily search what I have by brand (too faced, mac, etc), type (lipstick, blush, highlighters, bronzers) and color (red lipstick, pink blush etc). 

Bathroom & Makeup Room

Both have been remodeled, so all I have to do now is decorate each. I'll put together a YouTube video and show you when I'm finished decorating and organizing them.

More LIFEstyle Posts

With all the construction, I've been pretty much glued to my house. With only 3 rooms left to remodel, I'll be able to show you more things in my city (New Orleans, Louisiana). 

Sephora VIB Rouge & Sample Sunday Revisited

These were two goals I listed last year. I started off really good with Sample Sundays, but eventually they got pushed aside. HaHaHa I'm going to try and do them again. If I don't review samples ON SUNDAYS, I may just post them anytime I can. I never got to a Sephora VIB Rouge event last year! I was ready to attend in November and my store decided not to have one :( So I will try again this year.

Congrats on your success so far Kim ♥︎ I am so glad to have found your blog, I especially love your gif images of product reviews, so helpful! I have also been using Snupps lately and I find that I spend less on makeup now which, I don't like to admit because I love makeup.
