Wow. I haven't posted in forever! Forgive me- life took hold. Law school applications (I got into Harvard! I'll be going in August) and a full-time PR/Advertising job have kept me super busy. Luckily, I'm finished with my job at the end of June so I'll have two months to relax! Please check out my very new column at mahogonybutterfly.com: All That Glitters!

The first story is a trip review, but I will be mostly writing about how to inject a dose of glamour into your everyday life. I hope you love it!

Everyday Beauty: Dove Energy Glow

I'm a huge fun of luxurious feeling stuff. I bought Dove's Energy Glow moisturizer because it was on sale and I'm so glad I did. It's thick and creamy and it has the most light, pleasant scent. It's intended for normal to dry skin. As far as it's luminating properties, I think there are better luminating creams out there but for an everyday moisturizer, this is great. Add Image

Brow Beauty: M.A.C. Brow Set

I use M.A.C.'s Brow Set in Girl Boy (a light golden brown) to complement by honey blonde hair color. It keeps your brows looking tame and neat and gives them some color. I usually bleach my brows, but since I've been away at school I haven't had the time. This has worked great for me and I'll continue to use it even when I do bleach. It's such an easy way to enhance your look and it's also so simple to use.

Update: Honey Blonde Beauty

Just wanted to give you an update on Dark and Lovely's Honey Blonde dye. This picture was take this summer (the little girl is my cousin Kennedy). As you can see, I only dyed the top portion. I colored it in April and the color has faded into such a brilliant and pretty hue.

Radiant Beauty: Mizani Spradiance

Ok, so I'm absolutely obsessed with my hair and I love products that make it shine. I'm always looking out for the next best glosser, but I don't know if I'll find one to top Spradiance by Mizani. I love it because it's lightweight and you only need a little bit. But, the best thing about it is after I apply, I feel like I just stepped out of the hair salon. It has this rich, lovely professional product kind of scent that just screams luxurious and pampered. I purchased my 5 fl oz bottle for $19.99. It's not cheap, but it'll last you a very, very long time. Indulge!
