New York, September 18, 2017 – Each season, Cargo Cosmetics journeys to a different destination as a nod to the free spirit of the independent traveler. For Fall/Holiday 2017, the beauty brand will embark on an intergalactic voyage transporting consumers to a galaxy far, far away.
Award-winning color brand, Cargo Cosmetics, announced the launch of a limited edition Star Wars: The Last Jedi makeup collection via Instagram and Twitter posts published earlier today.
The new Star Wars: The Last Jedi film debuts in U.S. theaters on December 15, 2017. Cargo Cosmetics’ capsule collection inspired by the film will coincide with the film launch and be available right in time for the holidays.

We are truly excited to be able to offer the Cargo customer this exclusive capsule collection in addition to the regularly planned Fall/Holiday launches.”

Me, vegan?

Yes it is true.  I know I have taken quite a hiatus from blogging and life has made some amazing opportunities for our family – we are so blessed.  One lifestyle change has been the decision for us to transition to eating vegan.  I will be writing again soon, sharing new things, so please be open that my mindset may be a little different than it used to be.  Thanks for your patience – and I will update soon!

Hard Candy bold & gorgeous liner and Ginormous Biggest Fan mascara 

Products provided for 100% honest review


Hard Candy bold & gorgeous liner and Ginormous Biggest Fan mascara

All in all it is really hard to say anything bad about these products.  If you are looking for descent quality items at an affordable price and easy-to-find locations (WalMart) then this is a go-to brand.  Period.

Perhaps I am biased because of my teenage years they came out with the first alternative nail polishes when Clueless came out and I have loved them ever since.  But most of the products I have used since then since the Sephora to Walmart transition took place have been pretty darn good in my personal opinion.

You can see from the photo above that even though I admit I suck at applying eyeliner, I got a somewhat descent line going with this felt tip.  Anytime my lashes start to flick upwards and outwards on their own at the corners without excess getting on my face I am also a very happy camper…

From the Hard Candy website:

Fat and Fine Felt Tip Liner $5

Shade Name: blackest black

This liner features an intense black formula that lasts up to 12 hours for smudge-proof, budge-proof all day wear. The smart 2-in-1 design allows you to create a thin or thick line using the same tip. All you have to do is turn the pen for a different angle and apply!

Ginormous Biggest Fan $6

Shade Name: blackest carbon black

This innovative fanned out brush never lets a lash go untouched! Wrap every last in exceptional volume from root to tip. Allow the brush instantly define, curl and fan out lashes for bigger, brighter eyes.

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip – More Better


I purchased this product, 100% honest review.

So I am loving this matte lip trend and it’s been so hard for me to avoid it considering I have chronic peel-y lips.  I heard a few good things on the web here and there about this ColourPop brand and gave it a shot. I have already shown you Beeper and here is another winner.

The  color More Better according to ColourPop is a deep velvet wine.

The color didn’t stick as well as the other I found a spot in the middle of my mouth fading after a few meetings. Of course I didn’t take it with me to work so I removed it altogether after a few hours. But I love the color and need to try again but next time I will use a lip primer.

Perhaps because I didn’t follow these application suggestions from the brand is why I was not entirely “matteified”.  Yep, I just made up a word.

Step 1: Make sure your lips are bare and dry! Step 2: Apply matching lip pencil for a precise and perfected application. Step 3: Apply Ultra Matte Lip with the applicator or your favorite lip brush. **For smoothest finish always exfoliate your lips first! This thin and lightweight formula glides onto the lips smoothly and leaves SUPER intense pigment-rich colour with a bold, ultra matte look. It’s very long wearing and completely kiss proof! We suggest storing these babies upright and shaking before application!

You can purchase your own for $6 on the ColourPop site

Father’s Day #giftguide

For me, father’s day can be challenging.  I think about what we would get my own dad and it was almost always cologne.  Now that my husband is a father, I want to be a little more outside of that box.  Classy, fun, or just plain practical.

Please note that this post contains affiliate links.

All of these gift ideas I hand picked from each website as a custom guide for you.  I hope this helps you find great gifts for dad!


Hot Topic is great when dad loves music, video games, comics or movies.  Everything from clothes, accessories – even cooking utensils.
