Back from Hawai'i! {Photo Heavy}

Hi everyone!

I have officially come back from vacation! We spent a magical week in the island of Maui, Hawai'i. This is my 3rd time in Hawaii, the 1st in Maui and, I have to say, it was absolutely wonderful beyond anything we could've ever expected!

I just wanted to come here to share with you some of the highlights of our vacation. If I had been able to take every single one of you with us, trust me, I would have. If you ever get the chance to go to Hawaii, don't even hesitate. It's the experience of a lifetime! ♥

Review :: LORAC Pro To Go Palette {Press Sample}

Disclosure: I have received a free sample of this product from LORAC Cosmetics
for review/use in conjunction with this blog post. All opinions are my own.

A few months ago, I was invited to BeautyCon 2013 Industry Night in Los Angeles (if you want to learn a bit more about it, click HERE!). There were tons of companies there that provided us with some great goodies to check out and review; one of them was LORAC Cosmetics, which is one of the biggest and most respected companies in the industry. I was given the LORAC PRO To Go Palette during the BeautyCon Industry Night event.

I intended to review this product sooner; however, I don't know what happened to the original pictures I took. I ended up having to bite the bullet and take new pictures of my already used palette, so please forgive the state in which my poor little palette is in. This has been a well-used and well-loved palette, hence the powdery look it has in every single image. I hope you don't mind...

But, enough about me crying over old pictures. Let's get into the review! ☺
