If you have been around here for a while, by now, you know about my love for makeup. Even though inner beauty is the most important, I still love taking the time to put my face on. Lately, I’ve been particularly fond of products that offer a little more than just a painted effect. I know it's super tempting to hop into a tanning bed to get that sun kissed glow, but let me tell you, the risks for skin cancer make it so not worth it. There are a lot of products that help provide the fresh and dewy look that I want during the summer, so here are some tips to get that summery glow without a tanning bed! When it comes to our skin, we can never be too careful. It’s . . .

I've touched upon this before, but makeup is has become one of my favorite things to collect and play with. To me, makeup not only is a fun way to express myself, but by taking the time to put some on is my way of saying: "Hey body, thanks for still being alive. I'm going to treat you extra nice today by dressing you up and appreciating the fact that I'm still kicking." Let me be clear: I don't need makeup to feel beautiful and there are plenty of days where I'll run around with just mascara on. However, I always feel . . .
Feeling beautiful first starts with my outlook on life and then follows with my skin. There are few things that make me feel confident than when my skin is clear, smooth, and radiant. Unfortunately, I don’t always have access to the priciest skin care products, and I don’t have all the time to experiment with different skin care treatments either. Show, how do you keep your skin clean and clear? Today, I’ll show you some easy secrets and give you a guide to flawless skin. Ready to learn the tricks of the trade?

This year is flying by and before you know it, it'll be time for Christmas music!! (I'm a little excited, can you tell?) Anyway, it is time for the June edition of In and Out and I'm happy to be linking up today with one of my sidebar sponsors, Ashley from Keeping Up with Ashley and Cody. She wanted to do an In and Out post for this month and I thought it would be fun to give everyone even more products to try and and ones to stay away from. Also, I decided to be brave and make a vlog talking about the items on my In and Out list! It's . . .

It must have been the fact that I hadn't had hair in almost a year and couldn't believe that I took it for granted. I started dying it like crazy. Every three-four weeks, I tried a different color or a different look. My first year of college I went from brown to dark brown to jet black, to jet black with pink streaks, to brown to blonde to orangey brown. Needless to say, my new hair didn't appreciate the onslaught of chemicals. And, during the summer, it seemed to get worse. . . .
I'm super excited to bring a special extra edition of In and Out this month to Life with Rosie. Last month, I received a Covergirl Voxbox from Influenster to try out Covergirl's newest mascara and eyeliner duo. Not going to lie, I was super impressed with the quality of the products, especially the liner. It got me thinking...what other products are out there by Covergirl that I'm ignoring because I'm too smitten with fancier brands most of the time? I think half the reason why I always stray away from the endless isles of cosmetics at Target is because it's so overwhelming to pick a shade of a foundation to try or figure out what type of lipgloss is going to work. I . . .
Some of these products were received in exchange for my honest opinion from Influenster. It's the end of May? Already? Where is this year going? End of the month means another In and Out round up; a monthly series where I review products that worked for me (In) and products that disappointed me (Out). In: Covergirl's Intensify Me Liquid Eye Liner-c/o Influenster. I got this eyeliner in a voxbox this month and was excited about it because it came the day I was planning on going to Sephora and buying a Stila liner. I have never been so impressed by a drugstore liquid eyeliner. This stuff goes on smoothly and has a gorgeous inky black color. It . . .
In a fit of healthiness craze and in an effort to keep myself motivated, I decided to buy myself a fitness band tracker last month. I have seen so many people talk about them, wear them and sing their praises, so I figured I couldn't loose. I spent about a week researching the different brands, reaching out to my friends for their opinion and even posting on social media to get others' ides. I finally settled on the Jawbone UP band, ordered it off Amazon and waited impatiently for it to come. The Jawbone UP band is an "activity tracker" with sensors built in to help track activity and sleeping patterns. It syncs through bluetooth and an app on your phone and it . . .
I can't believe April is almost over! This year seems like it's flying by. Today I'm excited to bring you my favorite monthly post: In and Out! In & Out is a monthly round up of all the products that I tried and loved this month (IN) and the products that left me feeling a little bitter (OUT). Be sure to check out previous In&Out posts if you want to see what I've tried out and reviewed in the last few months. I buy all of these products with my own money (expect one that I won!) so all of these opinions are my very honest thoughts! IN: Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer: I decided to give this foundation primer a go on a recommendation from another . . .
I'm excited to have Jasmine on the blog today sharing her favorite Spring beauty products! Once the sun starts shining in the spring time, I get so excited to start putting my make-up on because I plan on being outside, enjoying the sun and looking like I didn't just spend the last four months hunkering in a cave! Jasmine picked some awesome products that I also use, so I can attest to how great they are! Hi guys, I'm Jasmine. I'm a lifestyleblogger over at Classy, Sassy, and a Bit Smartassy (which of course is my blog). I was very grateful when Chelsie gave me the opportunity to guest post on her blog all about my spring beauty/hair products. So . . .
March has been an awesome month and I'm both sad and stoked that it's coming to an end! We're moving in a week from today and while I can't wait to start our new adventure, it's very bittersweet to leave our friends, our family and our home in Rexburg. But, I am excited to bring the In and Out - March Edition to you before the month is through! Here is a round up of what things were in this month for me and the things that were out. IN: Asobu Flavor It Infusion Water Bottle-I wanted to try infused water but when I used a regular water bottle and put strawberries in it, my water got gummy and and slimy super fast. This water bottle has a little filter to . . .
Thank you to Evian, The Wilkes Group and Brandbacker for sponsoring this post today. All opinions are my own! I first want to say that I am so much more then my cancer. I know I've been writing about it a lot lately. But, I would also be lying if I said that my cancer wasn't a huge part of my life and who I am today. That being said, thank you to all who accept my stories of treatment and trauma with kindness and encouragement. This isn't a blog about cancer, but this is a place for me to share what cancer has taught me and I so appreciate your understanding and receptiveness. When I lost my eyelashes and eyebrows during my chemotherapy treatment, I vowed that . . .
