Fill Your Stockings With BREAKUPS TO MAKEUP

New York, November 2014 — Breakups to Makeup, known for its smart and chic accessories featuring cosmetic–‐related slogans, announces an exciting addition to the holiday market with the introduction of Breakups to Makeup compacts. Measuring in at just about two inches, these compacts feature classic Breakups to Makeup catch-phrases, such as “I May Not Be Perfect, But My Makeup Is”, and “This Is New York City: Our Makeup Needs To Look Good”. Ideal gifts for any makeup enthusiast, these pocket-sized compacts include a magnifying mirror on one side and a regular mirror on the other.

Along with the introduction of the compacts, Breakups to Makeup will be expanding its campaign by also announcing the first of many products to be presented in Spanish. Launching the campaign in Spanish will be a compact featuring the best-selling “Amor Me Crio Lipstick Me Salvo” or “Love Raised Me, Lipstick Saved Me” slogan. Breakups to Makeup plans to ultimately make all of its signature products available in both English and Spanish.btm001com-breakups-to-makeup-i-may-not-be-perfect-but-my-makeup-is

“As makeup artists, makeup is our form of art. It is our outlet and our release. No matter what we are going through in life it is the reason why we get out of bed. Makeup is a true form of art that let’s us not only express ourselves, but also makes others happy,” says Breakups to Makeup founder Angelique Velez. “Personally, going through difficult times in my own life (ahem, a breakup), makeup literally saved me and served as my outlet to devote my time and energy. Many people don’t understand that makeup to us is not “just” a product, but our creative outlet. I wanted to spread this message in a quirky way, hence the birth of B2M.”

Breakups to Makeup compacts will retail for $10 USD, and will be available starting November 17, 2014 on and select retail outlets and virtual aisles throughout the US.

InstaNatural Dead Sea Mud Mask- Review

I love mud masks. I love slathering them on, and running around the house and making my kids laugh.

I also love them for their therapeutic properties. There are few things better than sitting back in a hot bath, with a mask on, and ignoring the world.

I jumped on the opportunity to try this mud mask when asked. Let’s check it out!mask

-100% Natural / Best Value – Our Dead Sea Mud Mask is made from PURE Dead Sea mud to ensure the highest-quality product. Our formula is all-natural and arrives in a huge 16 oz. jar to deliver premium value.
-Apply on the Body – Our mask also includes a nourishing blend of Organic Shea Butter, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Aloe Vera, Organic Calendula Oil, and Hickory Bark Extract that provides unsurpassed moisture to soothe dry and irritated skin. Men, women and teens with skin issues can seek help by using this natural remedy.
-Great for Acne & Blemishes – This detoxifier and purifier comes from the renowned and sacred Dead Sea, which is known to contain many minerals beneficial to the skin, such as magnesium, sodium and bromine. These elements work to extract excess oil & dirt from the skin and purge blemishes.
Manufacturer Guarantee – InstaNatural is proud to back their products with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee Policy, no matter where you buy our products. If you are not completely happy with your purchase, please contact us for a refund – no questions asked.
-Age-Defying Benefits – Using this facial mask once a week also helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Applying the mask will improve your skin so you can achieve a more even skin tone and smoother complexion.


Ok, I am a texture person. The texture of this was weird. I am used to using mud masks that are gritty and thick. This one reminds me of chocolate pudding. It has the exact same texture. It was borderline slimy too. It went on a little “drippy” and messy.

It had little to no scent, which was fine, but also not what I am used to. It was also COLD when it went on my face. It felt SO good.

I would consider this mask better for people with oily skin. When I used it my face felt super dry after I rinsed it, and the next morning, my face was super oily. It was uncomfortable, like my skin was parched. I wound up slathering on some coconut oil to soothe my face.

I do not think this is a BAD product, not at all. Just not for my skin type.

Free Reign Friday- Old Factory Candles and Giveaway!

I love candles. I used to collect them. There was a time when I had about 50 Yankee candles in varying scents. Hubby said I had a serious problem. He was probably right.


I still love them, especially fall scents, like pumpkin. I was super pumped to get to test and review these candles. IMG_1186


  • FALL HARVEST themed gift set contains 3 different 2 ounce candles. Includes Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry, and Autumn Leaves.
  • Made in the USA with natural soy wax and self-trimming cotton candle wicks.
  • Each gift pack comes with 3 fragrance-themed candles. Each of which burns clean for over 20 hours. The subtle jar design makes it the perfect complement for any decor, and any room of the house – kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, family room, great room, basement. We recommend burning one candle in a smaller room, or combining 2 candles in a larger room for the best effect.

Look at how stinking cute these little candles are!IMG_1185They are small, but they are mighty! They have a very strong scent throw.
