Bourjois Smoky Stories Quad in 02 Over Rose Review

Back in December, I was in London with the mister, and of course could not resist the chance to pick up a few goodies. A trip to Boots and I had my hands full of Bourjois products (literally).

Me being me, promptly started using them, forgetting to blog about it (I mean to!) and as I was clearing out some stuff a couple of weeks ago re-discovered them and that's when the face-palming began...

Anyhow! No harm, no foul since this is a permanent product. Let me draw your attention to the quad in question:

Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara Review

I was never someone who was super into brows. I mean, I knew I had decent enough brows, and aside from getting them threaded once in a while/tweezing strays and stragglers, I never much bothered.

All that changed, though. I'm not sure when it did, but one day I "filled in" my brows with a dark brown shadow and... I was mesmerized. They looked so wonderful! I looked so different!

Fast forward to today, where I can no longer do without a brow product. How times change. Still, for the most part I look forward to a fuss-free product, and this just so happens to be one of my favorites.

BGMM -was- on vacation but I'm back!

Hey there!

As you may have noticed, I wasn't around last week. It's been exciting times here at the BGMM home. The weekend before saw Mr. BGMM and I graduating from our respective programs (woop woop!) and it was a celebratory weekend! And after the exciting weekend, my folks, the mister and I flew out for a well deserved vacation! There were stunning views, incredible scenery and lots of hiking. Mr. BGMM and I even went horseriding! (I'm still feeling the effects of that, ouchies).

But vacations have to come to an end and while I had a fantastic time, I'm happy to be back to my blog!

Congratulations to those of you who are graduating (and if you've graduated before, or in the future - you all deserve it!)

Back to regular schedule starting tomorrow :)

Hey everyone!

If you've been a longtime reader of my blog (thank you!) you might have noticed that I've been trying to make changes (for the better!) to the blog of late. My photography skills have been increasing (can I say that?) and the more I've been striving to improve them for my newer posts, the more unhappy I was with the pictures on my older posts.

And so, starting today, I'll be updating my older posts with better pictures. This will be for the products I still have with me; I'll be re-photographing them, so they might not be in the pristine condition they were!

On that subject, as much as I try to take photos of products when they're new, it never happens. I'm just too tempted to swatch it and play around with it! And to combat that I've been putting things away in the hopes of taking them out one a time to review... and that isn't working out. I'm going to be using all the products I have (which is why I got them in the first place, natch?) which means... review photos won't be so "pristine pretty".

I hope you find all my posts - old and new - useful and informative.

Thank you for your support!

ColourPop Lippie Stix Westie Review (spring shade)

I've already reviewed the rest of the ColourPop spring shades here, but as I mentioned there, I mistakenly ordered Pepper instead of Westie.

I wasn't actually going to get Westie, but then I placed an order for the In Bloom set (review coming soon!) and thought "why not?" and tacked on Westie.
