Five for Friday-September

It's Friday, it's a long weekend!!
It's September!! Wait, what?? September
already? Wow, time does fly.
Just like that summer is over.



Hurricane Harvey has devastated Texas. 
The pictures are absolutely heartbreaking.
The Houston Moms Bog has an amazing post
about how to help (be it money, supplies 
or volunteering) those affected. 
Every little bit helps, some people lost everything.
I can't even begin to imagine what that is like.

While the song is catchy, it was the video
that really caught my eye. The video
chronicles his Grandmother's 100th Birthday celebration.
 It was epic!! It's a blessing to grow old, one that many people
never get. Age is nothing but a number.
PS- I can't believe his Grandmother is 100,
she looks fantastic for her age!!


Have you tried this new mascara from Givenchy?
Supposedly, it curls your lashes.
Umm...yes please!!
So need to pick this up.



After hearing great things about Lipsense, I 
decided to check it out for myself. To be honest,
I'm torn about it. Some days I love it, some days
I hate it. It does last long but it doesn't always
last all day as it claims.  Also, I'm not a fan 
that it can only be bought online. I would 
prefer to see the colors in person and try them on
before purchasing them. Let me know if you 
are interested in a full review.



Have a Wonderful Weekend

What caught your eye this week??
Let me know I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

  1. I've used that mascara and the wand is seriously the coolest! I didn't get a ton of curl from it on it's own,but with a lash primer you definitely would! Happy Long weekend girl! xo,Biana-BlovedBoston

  2. Happy Friday cutie! So, the lipsense, a local girl here sells it and she did A tutorial on how to put it on which helped but I'm really on the fence about it. I would love to see you do a full review. wishing you a fabulous, long weekend! xo

  3. I am totally a lipsense convert after trying it! I have a local rep which really helps bc I can see the colors in person before investing. have a great weekend!

  4. i have been thinking about texas so much too. so crazy. just want to do more. and i need to try that mascara! looks so cool. have a great weekend girl!

  5. You should totally do a full review on Lipsense. I see it everywhere and have a few FB friend consultants but I have never given it much thought since I cant see them in person at a store. I tend to stick to Kat Von D and Too Faced. Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. My cousin's wife just starting selling LipSense and I'm excited to give it a try. That's the one thing I don't like either. I want to buy something from her, but have no idea about what color would look best. I really need to see them in person! Hope you have a great Labor Day weekend!

  7. It really is so crazy that it's already September! I constantly keep on asking myself where in the world this year has gone! And believe me, the Harvey destruction is just as terrible as it seems on the news, and probably worse, but I think that the thing to focus on is the fact that everybody has really come together through all of this, which I think that is amazing.

  8. I love seeing how people have come together in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

  9. I feel the same way about LIpsense. I love the color I have, but it doesn't always last all day unless I constantly put on the gloss. I want more colors, but it is soooooo hard to get off at the end of the day. Hurricane Harvey breaks my heart. I hate seeing people go through this. :(

  10. yess do a Lipsense review! I have a friend that sells it but it seems like it's quite the process to put on and take off! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  11. side-eying that mascara claiming to curl your lashes. i've tried ones that have said the same thing and NONE of them did it. have you tried?

  12. So sad about Texas...I wish I could do more to help out. I'm intrigued by the Givenchy mascara. Need to try that one out if it also curls your lashes! Have a great weekend!

  13. I LOVE LipSense (and I'm not a distributor). I've found the longer you use it, the more it lasts. I basically wear it every day now, and there are times I forget to take it off, and it's still on the next morning! I need to try that mascara. It sounds fantastic.

  14. I want to hear more about this lipsense!! Hope you have a good rest of the weekend!!

  15. Hurricane Harvey is so devastating. I cannot imagine. :( I love that Macklamore has his grandma in the video. It's too cute. I kind of love him. :) I don't do a lot of lip color, even when I buy it I forget to apply it, hehe but it is always so pretty! :) XO - Alexandra
