Battle of the Cleansing Machines: Michael Todd Soniclear Elite v. Foreo Luna

The Soniclear Elite is a Press Sample. I won the Foreo Luna in an iFabbo contest.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

Most of us wash our face every day.  I know for most of my life, I didn't think much about it.  At first, it was whatever soap I was using in the shower, then I started using specialized cleansers.  Then, the tools started coming out, and they started getting more and more expensive.  Maybe you haven't been able to decide between some of the options out there.  I've been using both the Michael Todd Soniclear Elite and the Foreo Luna, and I want to share my experience and opinions with you, in hopes it helps you find the right tool for you.

A Cute Mud Mask! #HelloCutieMudMask

Hello, Cutie! I mean, Fireflies!

Hello Cutie is a strange name for a mud mask.. who looks cute in a mud mask? I have to say, though, I felt super cute AFTER the mask!  This is a pretty great one.

Ametrine Dreams

Hello, Fireflies!

It's the last installment of this month's jewelry theme!  So far, I've done nailart inspired by my Nana's fire opal ring, a faux gold and CZ necklace, my favorite dinosaur pendant, and today, a unique stone pendant from two types of quartz.

Natural, Nourishing Vitamin C Cleanser from #OZNaturals

Press Sample.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

Even though I have oily skin, I really don't love the process of washing my face.  Maybe I was traumatized by years of harsh soaps, but sometimes I even dread the idea of washing my face twice a day.  I'm not sure any cleanser will ever make me LOVE the process, but it's nice to find another cleanser that makes my face feel clean without feeling stripped, and also has botanicals to improve the condition of my skin.

Exotic Feathers

Hello, Fireflies!

AIS is still on official hiatus from Sunday challenges at the moment, but that just means another Sunday where I get to show you whatever stamping I want! yeah! Feels so rebellious.  I have three looks to show you today, all revolving around feathers, and I used kinda exotic or HTF polishes as the base colors.

Cacao Nibs - Amazing Chocolatey SuperFood! #PNMCacaoNibs

Press Sample.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

It's Saturday, the day where sometimes I step outside the conventional purview of beauty blogging, and take a look at some things on the fringe that make me feel happy or beautiful or healthier.

When I got an e-mail asking me if I wanted to try Pure Natural Miracles Cacao Nibs, I was thrilled! It feels like an accomplishment to have someone want to give me chocolate, right?  These are not your ordinary chocolate pieces, though, but a true superfood!
