BBA Musings # 1: Dermaplaning / Shaving

My brows have a blunt way of reminding me of my self-neglect by simply growing. It didn't matter what direction they pointed to - just that they grew. And grew. To the point where I didn't recognize myself when I stared at the mirror, when I could afford more than a quick glance at my …

It wasn't long before I ended up at my favorite (wouldn't say local, since there are e.l.f. stores that are much closer to me than the one I like) e.l.f. store - my Planet Fitness was literally less than a 5 minute drive from it. Keeping the e.l.f. lipstick in mind, I made sure to …

The BBA Makeup Workhorses

Hey, Beautiful Blossoms! I'm glad to be able to sneak in a blog entry today - between working my regular and overtime hours, shuffling between the old apartment and the new house, and trying to get my licensing exam in order, it's nice to be able to talk about something that's completely unrelated to all …
