Hello? Is this thing on?
So it’s me, Leah, and I know I’ve been radio silent. Like really, really MIA. I haven’t posted since November 11th, 2016 and with good reason, as we welcomed our little boy Max on November 30th! Things have been more than hectic in our household with two crazy and amazing boys, but as they said, we wouldn’t have it any other way!
The funny thing about me not posting since November, is the last post was about Sephora’s Spring VIB Sale and guess what?! It’s baaaack! Beginning today through the 24th, VIB members will receive 15% off of everything in stores and online with code VIBSPRING. I count down to these sales as they are my time to stock up on all my of favorites, as well as try items on my Lust List.
I own and have tried a lot of makeup. And I mean A LOT. Below are my some of my all time favorite products, things I buy and recommend over and over. I made this into a quick and shopping list, but you can head back to my article in November here to read about all of the reasons why I love them as I had written about most of these products back then as well…ya know, when I had time to write a manifesto on each product prior to having two boys, ha. But I promise they are all the best of the best and you should take advantage of the savings and see for yourself, but don’t wait too long since popular products often go out of stock during this promo.
