I mean for those of you who might be new here, heck at this point I’m new here, I am plus size, fluffy, round, larger, whatever terms you would like to use, I fall into that category when having to shop for clothing items. This year is a little different from others and since I found myself with a bit more time on my hands, I decided I was going to use our pool more often. This was a great idea, not only because of the record heat waves but also because of the extra pounds I found myself putting on due to working from home then being furloughed.

I’m Back!!

I know I’ve made this kind of post before, but let me say I am back now and I will be posting regularly again. I wanted to make a side blog for weight loss, but I found that while I did enjoy it I wasn’t passionate enough about it to make it a long-term blog. I might post about it from time to time here, but for now let’s focus on the sparkles and neutrals we all seem to love!

New Update for Beauty Gabbers: November 8th, 2015, March 16th 2016

So if you can see from above I’ve been meaning to write this a while ago. Anyway, I’ve been lacking on posting a whole bunch simply because my skin has been miserable. Like really bad to the point I was having elementary school flashbacks where I constantly had my oily bangs on my forehead and that caused my forehead to have all these little bumps. It was terrible! I have some photos I tried to take of them before I tried fixing them, but I really hated them and what’s worse is that I had no clue why they began!

After a while (and lots of googling) I found out they were clogged pores. I knew they weren’t acne because I never have had an issue with it, plus all the acne products I tried did nothing. So I got myself some products with salicylic acid and micro-scrubs and went to town. It took months, I mean months to get it back to where it used to be and it still can get bad when I ignore my skin for too long since that oily skin still builds up and gets all gross. I’ve included some of the products that I’ve used to get it back to decent skin, and I’ll let you know what I still use and what is kind of my second string backup items. And no, I don’t use these every day, just as their results are needed, like if I use the Olay scrub, I won’t use Vasanti.


The Details

  • Get my Face Clean:
    • Olay Fresh Effects Deep Pore Clean & Exfoliating Scrub
    • derma|e Microdermabrasion Scrub (I freaking love it)
    • Vasanti BrighentUp! Lovely scrub
    • Murad Clarifying Cleanser (HOLY GRAIL)
  • Makeup Remover:
    • Any Makeup removing clothes (pictured ones are the one I have currently)
    • Simple Micellar Water (I like Garnier way better now)
    • Acure Facial cleansing Gel (not pictured)
  • Misc.:
    • Olay Toner for Oily Skin
    • Face Masks (not pictured)

Ok so we all know the drill, life happens people get busy, yada yada…and that’s no different for me. So here are some photos of what I’ve been up to since I’ve been away. Plus I’m feeling under the weather today so words aren’t really coming that easily to me right now.
I’ve been working on my room. Redoing most of it and this is the result.



I made some homemade soap for Christmas presents this year and now I’m hooked!



Overall it was a challenging year and here’s to a good start for 2014!

So this post has been a long time coming since I didn’t really know what to say. If you’ve read back through some of the posts then you might have noticed that many of them have been solely by me, Vanessa. Breann has been somewhat absent as of late and there is a good reason for that. We work together and where we work there is a program that you can go through ( if you’ve been nominated) to become a manager. Sometime before Christmas, Breann was nominated for this program and was accepted! So she’s going to be working somewhere else for quite some time and learning how to become a manager!

So what does that mean for me? Well while she’s doing this she will be very, very busy. She won’t have a whole lot of free time and we won’t see each other at all. So to let her attention be only on her new role she has decided to take an extended break from the blog, not makeup entirely, just the blog. So she won’t really be posting anything on here nor doing any reviews.

I will contuse to post/review products on here and try new things. The products will more then likely be drugstore items since I don’t go to malls/Sephora as often as she does lol. So I hope that clears up things around here and why I’ve been missing somewhat. So if you stick with me I will most definitely be posting more and trying new things! 🙂
