It's Almost Halloween!

Hello Everyone!


Thursday is Halloween! For the past few years I like to create some sort of halloween inspired makeup look, but since having this sinus infection, I doubt I'll create any looks costumes etc. Yes I'm still sick with this sinus infection! Anyway here are 3 looks that I've shared over the years.




I didn't plan on doing anything for Halloween in 2016. At the spur of the moment I created this kitty makeup look.




It's still kind of ironic that I decided to be a bumble bee two years ago since I'm terrified of them lol!




I had a lot of fun creating this look and I made the crown! 


Wishing everyone a safe and Happy Halloween! Also, I wrote this months Lifestyle post ahead of this post, so don't forget to check that out! My Life in October

My Life in October 2019

Hello Everyone!


Another month is almost done, and that means it's time for a monthly lifestyle post! I want to thank everyone for well wishes on my last post. I still have a sinus infection, but hopefully I will feel better soon!


October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month You may know that I'm a survivor of domestic violence. In the two years that I left that relationship, I've shared my experience with DV, and how I moved on with my life.


Mental health is another issue that hits close to home. Over the past 6 years I've shared my struggles with depression and anxiety and how I cope. It's not always easy having mental health issues, but I know things get better. Please be kind to others.


October is also a Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My hope is that one day there will be a cure to end this cancer and other illnesses.


A throwback of one my Fall related pictures from last year.

At the Pumpkin Patch

Hello Everyone!


Today I stopped by a pumpkin patch! I didn't stay long and I didn't take any selfies because I'm currently sick with a sinus infection. I wanted to stop by another day, but since it's the end of October Pumpkin Patches around here usually end near Halloween. This is one of the few pumpkin patches that I've seen around here during this time of year.

So many pumpkins!

Today was a good day to visit the pumpkin patch. It was cool and sunny. 


 I mentioned having a sinus infection and I've been feeling really dizzy. Thankfully the dizziness subsided enough for me to take my photos.


Have you visited a pumpkin patch this season?

Black and White Photography

Hello Everyone!


Does anyone admire black and white photography? Don't get me wrong I love that we have pictures in color. When I was younger I used to look at old black and white photos. I thought how classy and timeless these types of photos looked. Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite looks that I've created using the classic filter on my phone.

My Customized Stoney Clover Lane Makeup Bags!

Hello Everyone!


Disclaimer: Stoney Clover Lane sent these products for review purposes. I want to thank Stoney Clover Lane for these products. All opinions are 100% my own. For more information visit https://www.stoneycloverlane.com

Being that I'm someone that loves makeup if you assumed that I've accumulated a lot of makeup bags over the years, you would be right. What can I say, I love makeup bags!


Stoney Clover Lane is brand that has so many beautiful customizable bags, pouches etc. When I given an opportunity to receive one of their makeup I was pretty excited! Especially when I found out I was sent 3 bags :) How thoughtful and kind! 


Greetings from Kendall & Libby


A handwritten note :)


Let's talk about this beautiful packaging! I absolutely love it! As you can see in the photos, SCL packaged the makeup bags into this bag with the drawstrings. The see through bag has so many cute designs, and the sticker and keychain are cute as well!


This makeup bag is huge! You can fit so many products in this bag. Even if you're not into makeup, you can use this bag to store so many different items. I don't have any travel plans, but this makeup bag would be great for traveling.


This bag is what dream makeup bags are made of!

I wanted an all white makeup bag, so I choose the white pebbled bag with the glitter and pink P letter stitching.  I think that this bag looks so classy and elegant. As I mentioned you can customize these bags and there is a large selection of bags and patching on the Stoney Clover Lane site.


How adorable is this small pouch with the customized  P! I was so surprised to find this pouch as I opened the package! 


I'll probably use this nylon pouch for makeup as well :) This pouch is a beautiful pink color. The customized white and glitter P goes perfectly on the pouch!


Since the holidays are coming up these items would make great gifts for someone, or you can gift a bag to yourself!  These bags make great gifts anytime of year! Visit Stoney Clover Lane for more products and information!

Clean Beauty at CVS

Hello Everyone!


I've partnered with CVS Beauty for this post for review purposes. I want to thank CVS for sending over these products. All opinions are 100% my own

This month CVS is focusing on clean beauty products. Clean beauty can be described as beauty products that are free of harmful or toxic ingredients. I love that CVS has decided to only sell clean beauty products. I was sent numerous products from CVS's 360 Beauty Line. I've used several 360 Beauty Products in the past and I like the quality of the products I've used.


Beauty 360 Deep Cleaning Pore Strips For Nose, 8CT

Beauty 360 Dual Ended Mask Tool

Pop-arazzi Peel Off Polish, Royal Blue

Can you believe that I have never tried charcoal pore strips before? Sometimes I get small blackheads on my nose which annoys me! Since these are deep cleaning pore strips, I hoping for a reduction in blackheads on my nose. I'm one of these people that love to have skincare accessories especially for my facial masks. Dual ended ended mask tools just make life easier to apply face masks. I'm unsure if Pop-arazzi is a Beauty 360 brand, but I like the quality of these polishes. I have a few in my Collection, but the peel off polish is new to me. Look at that gorgeous blue hue!


Beauty 360 Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Plumping Tissue Facial Mask

Beauty 360 Purifying Grapefruit & Charcoal Holographic Sheet Mask

Beauty 360 Brighten & Soothe Peel-Off Face Mask with 24K Gold & Honey, 3.52 OZ

When I started using different facials masks, I never looked back lol. I've heard that masks containg honey are good for the skin. 


Beauty 360 Exfoliating Lemon Facial Scrub

I've mentioned numerous times that this past Summer I started noticing fine bumps on my face. I try to exfoliate at least once or twice a week. I'm looking forward to trying this Lemon Facial Scrub. Hopefully this scrub will also help with brightening the hyperpigmentation that I get on my cheeks.


Beauty 360 On-The-Go Blender

I've seen beauty sponges at CVS, but I had no idea about this on the go blender! I'm so glad this blender comes with a travel case! 


What are some of your favorite clean beauty products?  Check out your local CVS or cvs.com for these Beauty 360 products.
