Its my 1 year BLOGGER-VERSARY!!! New blog design reveal! See what’s new…

OMG!OMG!OMG! HAPPY BLOGGER-VERSARY to me!!! You didn’t think I was literally quitting did you?!!!
Hiiiii! And welcome to my freshly updated pink &
glitter corner of the internet!!! LOL Ill explain the “quitting” part in a few, My team and I [YES! I have a full team now🙌🏾OMG sooo crazy right] have been working on
giving this space a MAJOR face lift since February! 😱 Its been quite a journey and such an accomplishment
for me personally. (If you know a bit about web development and how pricey it can be then you know what I’m
talking about) I am sooo
relieved this project has drawn its conclusion as I have been putting countless hours into making sure this
space reflects who I am and more then anything is a great resource to you. I am even more excited about the
new and improved, yet super
user friendly with much more functionality options. Even my mommy dearest was able to navigate thru with
ease🤗 you will notice its way may organized for you and the security features that auto-lock your
posts/comments
(to prevent spammers and abusers from getting access to your personal info) is insanely amazing!! I’ve also
updated my bio a bit to fit my current circumstances and lifestyle.
MY NEW BLOG DESIGN
Ok so besides updating the bio and the over all look of the blog. I have also added a FAQ so its easier to find
answers you’re looking for. You will notice we have simplified this space as well so its easier to navigate and
find exactly what you are searching for. WOOT WOOT!
We have also added a “SHOP” tool [located at the right hand corner of each blog post & its piiiiink!!!]  think of
this section more or less like a
personal shopping tool just for you! I will be keeping it updated on things like what I’m currently shopping for,
what I’ve purchased, what is on my wish list and what I’m reviewing/recommending from retailers ALL
across the internet!!! You will notice everything is in categories that focus only on each category topic.
WANT TO BE IN THE KNOW OF ALL THE DAILY SALES & DEALS FROM POPULAR RETAILERS??
You will notice at the top right and at the bottom of my blog is a “SUBSCRIBE “tab- Make sure you are signed
up because I will be sending out weekly  insider info starting mid-August Every Tuesday on upcoming top
sales for the current
week AND every Friday I will send out a round up of all the hottest trends of the week along with the best
sales to shop for the weekend! I love a good deal and hardly ever pay full price on anything so I will be sharing
my love of shopping the latest and greatest sales [[weekly]]!! In addition to that I will also have an updated
daily tab [located at top center] that shows DAILY deals/sales from retailers like Target, Walmart, Amazon,
Abercrombie,
Nordstrom, Nike and soooo many more! I will be implementing a MONTHLY GIVEAWAY for loyal
readers/subscribers as a thank you for signing up and will be getting the entries for the giveaway from the
subscriber list so make sure you are subscribed to enter!!!
My lil dolly Jadelyn will also have her “Dolly’s Corner” section on my blog where she will showcase her
personal top picks from her fave retailers! I have to say she is soooo excited about this and I totally love it for her💕
I COULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS WITHOUT YOU!
It’s been one year since I closed down my full service nail salon and decided to blog FULL TIME.  When I
started this blog I had no idea where it would take me or where it would lead my business. I am so thankful for
all of your love & support. I could not have done any of this without YOU!! It was definitely super difficult to
have to say goodbye to what seemed like my dream job but because of you all I feel amazing knowing I can
still share my love for beauty (since I am a licensed Cosmo) and fashion along with inspiration, love and
positivity and be able to make a career out of it. As the year has gone on, I have reached my goal of
consistently putting out a blog post every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and moving forward  I do still plan
on posting a blog post 3 times a week, however it could be more then 3 times a week or less then 3 times a
week because I will be focusing on implementing more in-depth, informative and quality content and
QUITTING just putting out quantity content!
 Now with this new site launch I just know there will be some
bugs here and there to fix so while we are hard at work getting all the kinks out PLEASE PLEASE feel free to
email me if you run in to any💁🏽‍♀️
I hope you all love the new space and all the new features. Take a look around and tell me what you think!
Happy Weekend to you…
Tiara’s Up!

Review: Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm

Barefoot and primarily vegan (Elemis does animal testing in China when legally required to do so) Elemis is a British wellness brand located in London. Nature powers their products: by sourcing natural extracts that catalyse each other and harness the power of nature’s finest active ingredients, and because of it, they can deliver results that you can see and feel, both inside and out. Elemis has blossomed into a darling company with a cult following of beauty addicts. It offers up its products in artisanal glass jars—a gorgeous design that not only keeps the contents fresh but also showcases the balm’s beautiful buds and pistils. Packed with nutrients and essential oils blessed by Mother Earth herself, Elemis’ Rose Cleansing Balm features nourishing cleansing balms that leave your skin silky soft and rejuvenated. In addition to the balm, the company offers eye and body care products as well as more conventional skincare options like serums and exfoliating treatments.

This was the first product Ive used from this brand and the soothing balm melts into a rich cleansing oil to dissolve make-up and impurities on the skin. Upon contact with water, it emulsifies to a hydrating milk that easily rinses off, creating an exceptional cleansing experience. It nourishes the skin’s lipid barrier, soothing it with hydration, leaving the skin feeling smooth and looking radiant.

It is for sure a well formulated cleansing balm made from the finest ingredients which is super important for removing dirt, oil, and makeup without causing irritation. The unique balm formula contains no Phthalates (a synthetic chemical that can be irritating to sensitive skin), SLS (a chemical commonly found in cosmetics).

I have been using This now for about 3 weeks and love how easy it is to remove a full face of makeup and how amazing my skin feels after. We are currently in the Sequoias and all the hiking and experiences leave you extremely dirty and dusty. Using the balm to deep clean and effortlessly remove all traces of eww was sooo nice! 😂 THIS is definitely being added to My Holy Grail: Skincare Edition. It is super soft, hydrating and moisturizing . And most importantly this cleanser smells sooo amazing!! I will be honest and say their products are a little more on the pricy-er side but what skincare with proven clinal trials isnt?! You can save 15% off when you sign up to their email list. Also you can check out all their products HERE.

I am for sure trying out other products from the brand! Have you used this brand before? Let me know in the comments below.

#NSALE 2021 Sneak Peek |Everything you need to know to shop the sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the most anticipated sales of the year for shoppers, featuring products at incredible prices across every department. Yesterday July 6th, Nordstrom gave everyone a sneak peek at sale items prior to the start of the event which will begin July 12th for certain card holders. Which, depending on the tier of their card status have the opportunity to shop the sale during Early Access. I did a full funny blog post last year making fun of the whole tier system and comparing it to a high-school hierarchy LOL. You can read it HERE.

Now, in MY opinion the sale is so ridiculous to have these tier systems put in to place to begin with So I will NOT be shopping too much of the sale and also because I closed my Nordstrom credit card account to be part of the debt free community. So I probably wont be able to access the sale until public access anyways and by that time everything is usually out of stock. Any-who this blog post is specifically showcasing just a Sneak peek of a few of the items that I saw and loved. In my experience however, if you plan on shopping the sale, now is the time to add your fave items to your wishlist so you have full and easy access to them when the sale goes live. I plan on doing another post for high ticket items I think will sell out the quickest as well as what’s in my wishlist. And of course if I do purchase anything from the sale I will be sure to include that as well.

N O R D S T R O M • A N N I V E R S A R Y • S A L E

WHO CAN SHOP & WHEN?

Ok so in order to have early access and shop BEFORE July 28th you have to have a Nordstrom store card. If you dont have one and want one you can apply HERE. If you are not sure about your card status you can check it in your account settings.

Canada is also hosting a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but will have a different timing schedule:

EARLY ACCESS: July 25th- July 27th

PUBLIC SALE: will happen July 28th- August 8th

Convertible strap bralette

Zella high waist leggings

Good waist skinny jeans

Cozy chic lite cozy cardigan

June Sephora Faves || What I’ve been loving

I always love doing a post about the stuff I loved from my last haul and this month I had a few products I’m still loving that I definitely want to share with you guys so without further ado let’s get into it.

1. Hydroflex serum foundation

Ok can I just say that this serum foundation is soo good I did a full review on it Here. This is definitely being added to My Holy Grail: Makeup Edition for sure! Its very hydrating and good for the skin. I love when I see a mix of beauty and skincare brought together.


2. Brown obsessions eyeshadow palette

This eyeshadow palette is sooo pretty. I love any earthy tones with shimmer on my skin. It compliments it soo well. This would be great to achieve any neutral look.


3. Glowish soft radiance bronzing powder

Now this glowing bronzer should be on everyones wishlist for the summer to achieve that perfect and glowy look. And I have to say it photographs very very well. I will be wearing this all summer long for sure.

5 steps to having silky smooth legs

Ok so having smooth soft legs is major goals whether we shave our legs or not. And if you’re like me and shave you want to have smoother legs in between shaving because HELLO! IM A MOM and aint no body got time to be shaving every single week you know. I mean am I right or AM I RIGHT? LOL!! So here are my top 5 steps to having silkier, smoother legs longer…

STEP 1: E X F O L I A T E

DID YOU KNOW?- That dead surface skin can be the cause of your legs to feel rough so when you use something to slough away the cells it really makes a difference. My go to body scrub is Tree Hut Moroccan rose shea sugar scrub. It smells amazing and leaves your skin feeling baby smooth!

STEP 2: U S E A G E N T L E B O D Y W A S H

Before I shave, I always use Lovers Care Goat’s milk shower cream. It has hydrating properties and is formulated with almond oil and cocoa butter which will give your skin a boost of moisture as it cleanses.

STEP 3: U S E A S H A V I N G C R E A M

Ok so this is probably the most important step. The product you use when you shave. It’s completely different from using soap as soap can be extremely drying. However a shaving cream is formulated to reduce the friction between the razor and the skin. I love the Billie shave cream. It sticks to your skin extremely well and allows for a smooth shave.

STEP 4: U S E A G O O D R A Z O R

Now not all razors are the same! Some are made with moisture strips which help reduce irritation to the skin. So choosing a great quality razor makes a huge difference in the end result to having the smoothest legs possible. I LOVE LOVE the Billie razors because they are encased in a charcoal soap for a smoother and closer shave. I legit had to shave weekly and ever since I started using the Billie razor Ive noticed that my hair doesnt start growing back until after a full week and a half.

STEP 5: U S E A B O D Y C R E A M O R O I L

So after exfoliating and shaving you need to make sure your skin receives as much hydration after as possible. I really love Billie Dry bye body lotion because it is specifically designed for that! I also love how weightless and matte it dries. Leaving skin hydrated and yet it doesn’t feel like there is any residue left so when you lay on your sheets you dont have that sticky nasty feeling…. SCORE!!
