Make Up by One Direction Review

As you all know I hosted a giveaway last week for the release of the Make Up by One Direction launch. I will be honest and say I was a bit nervous to actually try all of these products because the market is clearly for someone who is younger than me, BUT I was SO surprised at how much I loved the products in the Take Me Home tin!

The tin itself is a nice box to hold all your make up. You don't need to necessarily keep everything in there (which I didn't) but for any One Direction fan it's a nice keepsake.


The eye shadow and eye pencil were great - totally up my alley in terms of products and color palettes I would buy for myself already. On the inside of the tin they give you different looks to try out with the eye shadow and pencil.

The nail polish is also so so fun! It's sheer enough of a glitter that it can be used as a top coat over a gold or even pink polish, or as you can see on my Instagram I used it to do a glitter ombre.

The products I was most unsure of was the lip gloss and the lipstick because they are BRIGHT when you open the package, and also when they are photographed...


I swear - they are NOT this insane once they are on your lips. And against my better judgment I decided some selfies were in order to prove to you all how fantastic these are, especially that pink lip color.

 SEE! totally not scary!

 PSSHHHH and the gloss - BEST GLOSS EVER!

I swear, I am probably going to make this lipstick/lipgloss combo my go to combo for every day use. And I will probably be really sad once they run out because they are really awesome. The lipstick has tons of moisture so alone it's great as well.

The one things I unfortunately will never use is the stencils the tin comes with. They are meant to be used with the shadow or the eye pencil for body art - and let's face it at the ripe old age of 28 I feel that I am past my body art prime. But they are cool for any of you young souls out there that want to give it a whirl.

My overall impression of the One Direction "Take Me Home" Tin - two thumbs up! Great quality and lots of fun for any One Direction fan.

The tins are in stores now at Macy's!

You've Got that ONE Thing... #makeupby1D

Right, so. Summer happened, and I apologize for the radio silence around these parts. We've had lots of friends and family visiting these last few months, not to mention had a bit of a heath issue that is now resolved, so back to your regularly scheduled program!

I have very, let's say eclectic taste in music. One of my guilty pleasures is boy bands - past and present. An absolute favorite of mine is One Direction. Whenever I'm in a bad mood I put on Stand Up off their "Up All Night" album and all is right with the world.

It's no denying that 1D is HUGE and everywhere, and you know you've caught yourself humming their songs every now and then. Being on the XFactor made the one of the the world's most famous musical groups.

I'm excited to be able to exclusively show to you all a preview of their upcoming makeup line!

Stripes and the Sea

During the last month or so, Folly Beach has been going through a beach rejuvenation. They have platforms way out in the ocean brining in extra sand to the shoreline to build up the beach that was taken away by past storms. When this started to go on the waters turned a brilliant blue, almost caribbean like. This past Friday we went out to see for ourselves and it was just beautiful!
