I start my skin care routine by using an exfoliator. This is not a Tarte product, however, it has really helped saved my skin. Since I have already mentioned…

    As a huge bachelor fan, I have always loved seeing the different merchandise viewers have to celebrate the show.

    Starting something new can always be frightening, especially when it affects the way you look. Beginning to use makeup is such an exciting time that can allow you to express yourself in ways you were not able to before.

    What you need to know before the Bachelor Premieres Jan. 7th

    With a new year, comes a new season of the bachelor! For most bachelor fans, the naming of Colton being the new Bachelor left us skeptical. From both the Bachelorette and  Bachelor and Paradise all signs lead to Colton not be prepared to take on the name of the “Bachelor”. I personally thought it would be Jason or Blake, but I’ll be honest I was really hoping for Blake, I mean have you seen him?! Instead of staying bitter, I am going to try to go into this season with an open heart, as we all hope Colton will.  Bachelor producer Mike Fliess made a statement to Entertainment Weekly about…
