XOXO Glossip Girl

Glossip Girl, here. Your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Hollywood’s cosmetics elite.

I crack myself up! I couldn’t resist.. But for real. There’s been some DRAMA in the cosmetic industry lately. But I don’t want to talk about that just yet… let’s talk about some lip glosses! More specifically: Kylie Cosmetics lip kits and glosses.

OH MY GAD: Getting Settled & A Big Revelation

view.jpg

 

I have been meaning to write a quick update for some time, now, after dropping the bomb that I was moving across the country. Things have been going great! I’ve been working quite a bit, actually. The kids and I get along really well and I absolutely adore the whole family! They have played a huge role in making this transition so much smoother for me.

Long Hair, Don’t Care

Recently, I bought a new hair toy from BellamiHair.com: a wrap ponytail! I’ve really been struggling with the limited hairstyles I can rock with short hair. When I saw that they were only $39, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity!

I’m very pleased with my purchase of the 20″ Synthetic Mochachino to Blonde Ombre ponytail. And I figured I would share a few photos and a “How To” tutorial on how to apply it! Enjoy!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

First of all.. Welcome to my new and improved blog! I took a few months off, but that doesn’t mean I was just lounging around. I was working my little tail off to make a lot of improvements to Gadden Rose. I hope you like them!

Secondly, HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! Or Singles’ Awareness Day, OR Gal-entine’s Day (as Meero Mani Nails, informed me), whichever you are celebrating. In the spirit of things, I pulled inspiration from Kylie Jenner to create this fun, glittery Valentine’s Day look for you all! I hope you enjoy!

The Video on Fire

If any of you are as nerdy as I am, you went to see Hunger Games Mocking Jay Part 1 at midnight!

Not only am I a huge fan of the book and movie series, it holds sentimental value to me. When the first trailer released for Catching Fire I was automatically drawn to Katniss’s makeup look when entering the Capitol for the second time.

I sat down in my living room behind my camera and filmed it, just for fun. It was my fourth YouTube tutorial and I was only expecting the 100 or so views I had been getting, up until this point. Boy did I wake up to the coolest surprise…. Continue reading

Tanya Burr and London Fashion Week

London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015 took place a few weeks ago, in September. I have always loved seeing the styles coming down the runway, but I also love checking out the street style. Not just with clothing but with hairstyles, as well! It’s a great prediction for future hair trends that are about to trickle over here, to the U.S.

While I was looking through all the pictures, I noticed one of my biggest inspirations and favorite YouTubers was in attendance: Tanya Burr. She’s not only an incredible human being, she’s a talented makeup artist and product developer (check out her products here). I’ve looked up to this woman for a few years and it’s amazing to see the impact she is making on so many lives, as well as my own!

Back to fashion week! Tanya posted a picture of her hairstyle for the Burberry and Issa shows on Instagram and I absolutely LOVED it! It was a simple swept back updo.

And the hairstylist in me decided I had to recreate it! So I filmed a quick tutorial showing YOU how to achieve the same style! It’s great for events or even just wearing throughout your daily routine.
