Haul or Beauty Spree...or...

Macface2adore (Jennifer) and I were trying to find a different word for "haul" last week on twitter and we came up with "Beauty Spree." Some people hate it...some people love it. To us the word "haul" sounds like you are hauling trash to the curb or hauling furniture. It just doesn't make sense it it's not glamours by any means.

The word spree means: Verb 1. spree - engage without restraint in an activity and indulge, as when shopping, a brief period of extravagant spending, a brief indulgence of your impulses.

The word Haul means:To transport, as with a truck or cart, To pull or drag forcibly; tug.

So, my challenge to you is to come up with something cute for the word haul.

In the end...it doesn't matter which word you like or if you are a fan of either or neither. It's really all about what a person wants to call their beauty buys. It's not intended to cause drama... cause after all... it's just a word!!:)

Do you like the word haul, beauty spree or what word do you think fits extravagant spending!? :)

It's Summer- GO NUDE! On your lips...that is!

It's almost summer time and the most beautiful summer lip is something light, natural and neutral. Here are some of my all time favorite neutral lip colors. These colors would compliment almost every skin tone. Some you have to be a little more daring.. such as the Gosh Darling with is the ultimate definition of "nude".

Celebs without make up!

I don't know why this fascinates me so much but it does. I think it's because when we think about celebrities we think about perfection. We get down on ourselves because we won't ever look as good as they do. Guess what. Most celebrities are normal looking woman. Extremely beautiful yet normal. It's all about the right make up, lighting and every celebs bestfriend a graphic artist who is a pro at photoshop!
So, these woman are beautiful but we have to remember not to put so much pressure to be perfect like they are... it's not real.
