Over the last year, I've developed a deep, deep love and obsession for TJ Maxx and all the magical things you can find there. It started with a trip to one when I was home last summer for Beach Week. I popped into the local TJ Maxx to look for some flip flops because mine had broken the second day we had arrived at the ocean. As I wandered towards the shoes, I got distracted by the beauty aisle where a familiar logo caught my eye - Anastasia Beverly Hills. I took a sharp right to go investigate and before I knew it, I was sitting on the ground, sifting through the beauty bins. I couldn't believe it - SO many brands that I spent big dollars on in Ulta and Sephora were . . .
*affiliate links In a quest to find the best Stila drugstore liquid eyeliner dupes, I found the best drugstore liquid eyeliner for beginners! This liquid eyeliner doesn't crack, is inky black, and is long lasting. I've rounded up the 5 best drugstore liquid eyeliners that I've tried below. Last week, we went on an eyeliner journey on my Instagram stories to find the best drugstore liquid liner that could dupe my holy grail liner: the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner. Every day, for 5 days, I tested a new drugstore liner on one eye and compared it to the Stila Stay All Day liner on my other eye. I'm rounding up all the results from the week of testing . . .
Chelsie opens up about why she loves playing with makeup, how she got into it, her makeup philosophy and why she decided to start her Utah Beauty Blog. Last week, I posted this picture to Instagram with the following caption: "I’ll never claim to know everything about makeup, and I sure as heck do not have the skill set to create the looks other beauty gurus can. Sometimes, I feel kind of silly and almost like an imposter when I share beauty posts or do makeup tutorials. Who am I to create and share that content? But, every morning, I sit down in front of my vanity and I create. I play with colors and shapes and textures. And when I’m done, I look at . . .
Thanks to Babbleboxx.com for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions and thoughts presented are entirely my own. Thanks for supporting Hey There, Chelsie! If you've been around here for a while, you might know that Valentine's Day holds some significant meaning to me, as it marks the anniversary off finishing my first chemotherapy treatment 13 years ago. For a while, Valentine's Day was hard for me because it brought back some pretty rough memories but I've worked hard to change how I felt about Valentine's Day over the last few years. Now, instead of using Valentine's Day as an excuse to feel sad about what I went through, I use it as an excuse to celebrate . . .
It's no secret that Dustin and I have been working really hard at changing our lifestyles for the last year and, I'm proud to say, we've been really successful in just that: lifestyle changes. Two years ago, we found ourselves both at our heaviest weight, with Dustin recovering from a very scary emergency gallbladder removal surgery while traveling for my sister's wedding. It scared us both. We realized that we had developed a lot of habits that were resulting in our bodies feeling pretty crummy and not performing the way we wanted them to. So, we set out to make changes that would actually stick and would slowly, but surely, give us the results we wanted: feeling . . .

I’ve partnered with the Dove team for today's post - all opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting the brands that support HTC. Well, it's no secret to my Instagram family that I've been on one heck of a skin journey over the last few months. I went from having the best/clearest skin of my adult life to having the worst skin of my whole life in general. Painful cystic acne, uneven skin tone and texture, and dry patches everywhere. As a self-proclaimed beauty-junkie, it's been frustrating and a bit scary to have my skin have this kind of meltdown of epic proportions. I've been worried I would have to get rid of all my favorite makeup and haircare products and . . .
*affiliates Last year, instead of doing a "best of beauty post," I put together a very extensive list of my absolute favorite beauty products and recommendations and titles it: "40 Beauty Products to Try in 2018." I did NOT expect it to take off the way that it did. It's been shared thousands of times on Pinterest, referred to frequently by the HTC community, and became a one-stop shop for anyone looking for a solid recommendation on what product to add to their beauty collection. So, it only made sense to sit down and create the same type of post for this year. Without further ado, here are my top 40 beauty products that I TRULY tested out through 2018 and . . .
Affiliate links used - thanks for supporting HTC! <3 Last week, when I asked from some holiday content ideas on Instagram to help me get back into the swing of things in terms of writing on HTC, I got an overwhelming amount of request for holiday makeup looks and tutorials. My heart was all a-flutter because nothing lights me up quite like a pretty makeup look and sharing it with you all! I sat down to create this look with no real idea of what I wanted to do, minus the fact that I wanted a bold red lip and I wanted to dig into the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette. Since I was planning on going bold with the lip, I wanted to do something a bit . . .
