Bobbi Won't You Come My Way

25 June, 2015 / ,

Although these pictures may seem like I am not the broke college student that I claim to be, I still am -- this adventure came out of the purse of Mama Brown. Not going to lie, this brief adventure with Bobbi Brown did spark a burgeoning expensive taste in make-up for me that in reality, I really just can't afford. But, I did enjoy every moment of it.

Normally, I am very afraid of going to a make-up artist. But, this time I was really into the end results. First, the make-up is wonderful quality. There were tones for everyone and anyone, which is different from many of the other drugstores that I normally get my make-up from (Shoutout to CVS). Although I do have a lighter skintone, I have very deep yellow undertones that make it difficult to find face make-up that works for my skin. That's why I was wonderfully surprised by the end results -- I didn't look like a normal human with a floating ghost head.

Second, I found love with lilac eyeshadow. I never knew that I could rock color, and it took this trip to find out that colored eyeshadow isn't this crazy add-on that only youtube beauty vloggers can rock.

To finish off my ode to Bobbi, I will say that although I look pretty good in these pictures, it has been hard to recreate this look. If you don't know already, make-up in general is not something that I really thrive in. But, going to the Bobbi Brown station and getting this tutorial done has helped me with knowing what to do and what to look for in make-up.

Moral of the story, go get your make-up done by a professional. It doesn't have to be Bobbi Brown, but going to someone who knows make-up from top to bottom can help you cut back on wasting on make-up that just does not work for you.


Be Kind & Be Epic

11 February, 2015 / ,

This is Madison. She's a bright 16-year-old who can quote anything from Disney and Superhero movies, has a soft spot for Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch), and can learn an advanced piece of piano music in two days. She still likes dolls, anything Betsy Johnson, and is way better at doing make-up than I ever will be.

She's also my sister with an acute case of Autism.

It took me a while to understand the gravity and some of the disadvantages that may occur when growing up with a disability. It wasn't until Madison started high school that I began to notice the differences in how I will be able to live life, and how she will live the rest of her life. She may never get to drive, fully live by herself, and because of her disability may have a difficult time finding a job.

That's why I jumped on the opportunity to sponsor Abili-Tees on my blog. Abili-Tees is a company that sells clothing made by adults with disabilities. The mottos are: Be Amazing, Be Kind, & Be You.

The purpose of the company really resonated with me, and I really hope that by me posting this, I can make a difference. Not only for my wonderful and beautiful sister, but also for all the other people just like her that don't have the #browngoonsquad to always be there for them.
