Born, raised and still reside in Chicago and I Claire, am a productaholic/shopaholic. I LOVE fashion and beauty products. I am always looking for the all time perfect product/scent/makeup item. I rarely stay with the same product for too long because I am consistently looking for something better.
Think this site is great because I rarely have friends that are into beauty and fashion as much as I am. I mention Urban decay and they think its multch for their garden. lol It is great to discuss beauty items with people that share the same interests and you could learn about different products from one another.
A lot of people (even strangers) come to me for advise for a wide variety of things (from beauty to to traveling, to gardening). I guess I just have that face or aura that makes people approach me and want my input. It is nice at times, other times I feel like I should write a book on all the weird things people feel the need to share with me.
I LOVE : Make up, beauty products, clothes, traveling, essential oils, healing gem stones, writing, problem solving, hanging with friends and family, mixing drinks (I'm known as the potion maker), Jasmine scents, trying different restaurants, shopping, ice cream, the color pink, ebay, sephora, matching, music, decorating

|My Horror Story:||
Just one? Sheesh.... I will have to think which one is worthy... lol
I bought a well known expensive eye liner that people/celebrities swore was the best ever that has the staying power of a year and I put it on in the morning before I went to work because I was going to have a long day that day, after work I was going straight to dinner with a bunch of friends. Well ALL day, the liner ended up all over my face. I even had some on my chin. It was horrible!! The next day, the liner went back to the store. Worse liner I have ever used.
|My Celebrity Look-a-like:||
I don't think I really look like anyone but I get told all the time I look a lot like tons of different actresses. And it is funny because they dont even look like each other. To name a few... angelina jolie, shakira, the Bratt doll (hence the picture), Milla Jovovich, Olga Maliouk.
People usually expect me to be a snob but really I am the sweetest, biggest goof ball.
I have a VERY oily T-zone. This gives me a mat finish and the coverage is buildable. I am a blusher, and this keeps my rosy cheeks at bay. My sensitive skin doesn't hate it either. My go to foundation (for now). What is your go to foundation and why?
I will have to say this is one of my favorite beauty brands. I have tried almost all their products and they are amazing and have wonderful staying power. I have oily skin and lids so if it lasts all day on me, it gets an A+. I love their waterproof products especially. They have eye shadow pots and face and body make up that last through swimming. Can't say any other brands could offer the same lasting power.Great stuff!! If you haven't tried Make up For Ever Brand, you should ... you will be floored!
I adore Lush bath and beauty products. My favorite is their "Lust" and "Flying Fox" scent. I LOVE the scent of Jasmine. Reminds me of vacationing in Hawaii (which by the way is where I got married). The wind would blow through the flower trees and it smelled like Jasmine. Takes me to my happy place. Any other Lush products or jasmine smelling items/products you can suggest for me to try?What scent do you enjoy? Any Lushees out there?
