#GRWM chit chat and a ColourPop first impression!

Man oh man do I have a lot to say! How is it that everytime I go to film a little mini video that will be "really quick" it turns into over an hour of me flappin' my trap! Don't worry, I've edited it down to a reasonable (ha!) length....

Welcome to my first “Get Ready With Me” chit chat video!

Today I wanted to share with you my first impressions on ColourPop’s shadows and pressed pigments while having a little chit chat.

A whole bunch of chit chat and a mini haul

Hey Dudes! This video turned out to be substantially longer than I had anticipated. What I thought would be a quick 5 minute run through of some cheap-y cosmetics I picked up at Beauty Island turned into a 20 minute chit chat session. Whoops! Let me know what you think about having longer videos like this one. I doubt I'll do it very often, but I think it's kind of fun! 

If you have any questions, comments, or just want to chit chat with me in real time, hit me up on any of my social platforms! I'm on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and of course you can leave comments on my YouTube channel too! I love hearing from you, it totally makes my day!

sunday inspiration #15 - monochrome

Happy Sunday Dudes! Today's Sunday inspiration is monochrome, which I am super stoked on. Totally reminds me of the 60's, one of my all time favorite decades. What's inspiring you this week? Don't forget to check out what is inspiring my blogger bff Gina this week over at Tulle and Combat Boots! 

I grabbed all these images from pinterest. Generally I loathe not properly sourcing images, but I'm just so pooped tonight! I will do my best to go back later this week and find the proper sources. In the meantime you can check them all out on my pinterest account :)

Petit Vour: vegan & cruelty free beauty

I received my second Petit Vour very soon after the first since I subscribed out of cycle, what a happy surprise! This month's box was curated by Logical Harmony, an amazing web resource for cruelty free and vegan beauty.

As a newbie video blogger I'm still figuring everything out. Unfortunately I had an issue with the sound in this video and lost a little bit of footage. I did my best to realign the sound, but I hope you all are forgiving if it's still a smidge off. I'm learning every step of the way!

On to the box!

Summer Loves | Petit Vour + Logical Harmony:

LVX 5 Free Nail Laquer - Lolli | $16
Modern Minerals Mineral Eye Shadow - Cherish | $12.50
Pelle Beauty Face Oil - Luxe | $29-68
Schmidt's Natural Deoderant - Lavender & Sage | $9

Have you guys tried any of these products? Do you have a Petit Vour subscription? Let me know what you think! Hit me up on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook.
