Too Faced Natural Eyeshadow Palette Review

  Today Yesi from Love Yesi Blog is taking over my blog and doing a review on the Too Faced Natural Eyeshadow palette.        Can we please talk about how perfect this eye shadow palette is? Before leaving to Vegas, I was looking for some shimmery eye shadows that I can switch between day and night. My Naked 3 was running out but I didn’t want to splurge for just a few shades. I went on a quest to Sephora for the perfect eye shadow. I found 2 beautiful colors and almost spend $25 on just two shades when I came across this beauty.  

Stepping Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Ashley from Simply Ashley Nicole will be taking over my blog and talking about Stepping Out Of Your Comfort Zone. “Taking a look in my closet you will find the majority of my clothes are black, grey, and my favorite color sea foam green. You may find the occasional red or green piece, but they are all are mainly neutral. Now lets venture to the make-up draws. Again you will find the neutral browns and pinks. I think you are getting the point, I’m not one to try new things or step out of my comfort zone when it comes to clothes and make-up. Lately though I have been experimenting with brighter colors and lipstick. It has been scary to try new things, but I’m starting to find new items I really like.  Here are 5 tips to help you step out of your comfort zone as well with make up and clothes.Try a new type of make-up. I am not one to wear lipstick, but lately I have been experimenting with it and I’m finding myself wanting to wear it more. I don’t go all crazy with reds and deep colors, but I have a few colors I normally wouldn’t wear.…

Beauty in the Everyday

Hey, there! I’m Nina and I blog over at Flowers in my Hair. You’ll find me writing about everyday adventures and the truth about them, DIY , beauty, travel, writing (because I call myself a writer), photography, recipes (typically recipes from my Italian family), health, books (they are kind of a vice but I show remarkable restraint by posting 1-2 times a month about them), short essays about serious stuff or things I am learning (on Thursdays), organization (by blogging about it, I have to try and organize my chaos), a bit on blogging itself, and probably a lot of other things. I also love elephants. If you don’t know me, I thought I would show you some things that make my world a little more beautiful. I think finding the beauty, the adventure in the everyday, in the mundane is so important. It’s like building up your muscles so when really terrible things happen in the world, even then, you can still spot beauty amidst the chaos and pain.

Coffee and Glitter: Drug Store Beauty Buys

Hi Classy Sassy and a Bit Smartassy Readers! I am Sarah from Coffee&Glitter and today we are talking great beauty buys on the cheap!Nothing thrills me more than new makeup or beauty products but homegirl can’t always be spending tons of money on them. I typically buy the majority of my products from Target but, we all know what a black hole that can be..go in for one thing, come out with fifty..so, this week, I stopped by Walgreens and picked up some great products that were all under $15-score!        Freeman Pomegranate Peel Off Mask $3.99: A while back, my girl, Jasmine posted a review on these masks and I had to get one or two. They have masks for just about every skin condition and they all smell amazing!    Simple Micellar Cleansing Water $7.29: If you watch any of the YouTube beauty gurus, I am sure that you have heard about this product. This water cleanses, removes makeup and hydrates your skin. I am officially obsessed with it!    e.l.f. Stipple Brush $3.99: I am a big fan of liquid foundation but, I like to apply it with a stipple brush as opposed to my fingers, a sponge,…

Battle of the K-Cups

Hi lovely readers from Classy, Sassy & A Bit Smartassy, I’m Emelia from Dream Big and Buy the Shoes. I blog about everything from love and bringing back the spark in your relationship to my kitchen experiments turned tasy recipes and the best beauty finds. I love writing about life in general too, and we all know that life begins after coffee. I recently took a poll on my Facebook page to see if anyone out there uses a Keurig. It seems that a good amount of people use a Keurig on a consistent basis, whether it be at home or work. The variety of K-Cups out there since I first received this heavenly machine is amazing, so why not have a showdown to see which flavor is best?   The flavors I am filling you in on today are some of my favorites in the K-Cup world and come highly recommended by yours truly.   The contenders:   Donut Shop- Coconut Mocha Cake Boss- Chocolate Fudge Cake & Chocolate Canoli Gloria Jeans- Caramel Almond Torte Starbucks- Cinnamon Dolce Green Mountain- Golden French Toast         Donut Shop Coconut Mocha  This one has a strong aroma of coconut, which is one of the best parts about…

3 Things I Learned From Owning A Small Business

  Coming from a family where both my parents are entrepreneurs, you can say it is in my blood to be one. When I started Bronte Designs Boutique in February 2014, it was the most exciting thing I’ve ever done. I remember the night that I printed my LLC certificate, the day I launched my boutique and everything in between.    It hasn’t always been glamorous; a lot of blood, sweat and tears went into my little online shop and I love every minute of it. I’ve only been in business for a little over a year but I have certainly learned some valuable lessons along the way. 1. IT TAKES TIME I am the type of person who has an idea and I want to make it happen now. As my husband says, “everything is now, now, now with you.” Which can be a good thing and a bad thing. I am a “do-er” as I like to say. I will be honest, it took about a month until I had a customer who I didn’t know. I am so thankful to have friends and family who supported by boutique from day one until today! I had to realize…

Chicken Parmesan with Zoodles

Hello to everyone visiting Classy Sassy and Smartassy Blog! I wanted to give a BIG thank you to Jasmine for allowing me the ultimate pleasure of guest posting with you all today. I am a new blogger to the blogging scene and was so excited when I received the opportunity to guest post for her. I hope I can live up to her blog’s name! Before I begin this really awesome blog post I just wanted to give you a little bit of information about me. My name is Trisha and I am the writer, editor and photographer for The Ham & Cheese Of It. I am also the wonderful mother to a new baby girl and an awesome wife (if I do say so myself) to a very handsome husband. Because of my husband’s military career we get the opportunity to travel internationally quite often. As of right now we currently live in Japan and this winter we will be moving to Germany. This wonderful life that we lead allows us to try different food from all over the world.This of course is the main purpose behind my blog. I am travel/food writer and post about our awesome experiences with…

How to Have Fun on Your Long Road …

Hey, Y’all! I’m Melissa and I blog over at The Rambling Llama. You can find me talking about my kids, trying to get fit, and the occasional recipe. Jasmine has quickly become one of my favorite bloggers, so I’m pretty honored to be able to take over her little corner of the internet today! My husband and I are probably what you would consider “professional road-trippers” Once a year we make the drive from the middle of Georgia to the middle of New Jersey. It’s about a 13-15 hour trip depending on how much you stop. With two small kids we tend to go on the 14 hour length! As professionals, my husband and I have developed a bit of a system so we don’t want to kill each other on the trip. Today, I’d like to share those with you! // Snacks are Key. Let’s face it! Fast food and snacks from the gas station can get pricy. Before you leave, load your car with lots of tasty filling snacks. Granola bars are  winner for us! We can usually get away with going to the dollar store a few days before we leave to get things that everyone loves. Along with the snacks,…

I will be going every year now! I went with my…
