Your makeup bag throws you over your weight limit at the airport. (Dudes, true story. 5 lbs over. Boo-yah!)
When your husband is looking for you in a store, he just calls the cosmetics counter.
You can name the new lines of each makeup company but you can’t remember anyone’s birthday. Except your own, because of course, you get that free gift from Sephora on your birthday.
My darlings, all of the above applies to me.
My name is Jillian and I live in Edmonton, Alberta Canada, even though in the winter I would rather be somewhere tropical for a few months.
I decided to start a blog based around all things beauty, and maybe the odd post about my cats …
So listen, I am totally the girl helping random strangers in the makeup aisle because 1. the beauty consultant was NO help 2. she was holding a blush that I already owned so the gushing commenced 3. I just love makeup that much, and the way that it can empower women and men alike to feel not only good on the outside, but the inside as well.
Right? I’m totally THAT person.
I do have some other loves in my life that don’t actually include makeup, like my big, wonderful, totally dysfunctional family, my two daughters, my better half Wyatt, my two cats, and of course our black lab Molly. I have been an Edmonton Oilers fan my whole life (insert cruel joke here), am addicted to pretty much all cartoons and love diet coke. I also frequently get a pretty good hankering to kick my BF ass at some good ol’ Call of Duty, yes people, I am an enigma wrapped in a beautifully contoured shell.
So peeps, if you are into the beauty scene like I am, then stay put, and let me share some tips, tricks and reviews with you. I don’t know about you, but personally I would much rather buy a product because someone like me recommended it. I mean, I appreciate that L’oreal thinks that we are all Beyonce and that we have her makeup needs, but unfortunately for most of us, that just isn’t the case.
Grab your coffee maybe a good snack, get comfy and lets chat!
