Launch of The Mascara Report | A Beauty & Make-Up News Site | MARC JACOBS BEAUTY GIVEAWAY

I discovered over time that 'Money Can Buy Lipstick' has become more of a personal blog, dedicated to not only make-up reviews, but also current favorites, shopping tips, and even stories about my life. I'm very happy with the direction MCBL is going in, and how I've developed the site, but I've always felt like I had a ton of make-up industry information to share, but didn't think it had a place on my blog. This is why I decided to launch the site, The Mascara Report. The Mascara Report is a resource for those looking to find the latest beauty, make-up, and skincare news. The mission of the site is to provide readers with everything they need to know about upcoming make-up collections before they reach the stores.

In celebration of my new website, I've decided to host a giveaway! The winner will receive (1) MARC JACOBS BEAUTY Style Eye-Con No. 7 Palette, (1) MARC JACOBS BEAUTY Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in New Wave, and (1) MARC JACOBS BEAUTY Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Ody. The giveaway is open internationally and the steps to enter are below:

Haul | Nike Roshe Run Hyperfuse Gold Trophy

I don't typically dedicate a whole post to a pair of shoes but I could not resist sharing these babies with you. About a month ago I discovered these sneakers online and immediately fell in love with the gold detailing. I'm typically pretty girly, but every once in awhile I love finding sporty pieces I can add to my wardrobe. As soon as I figured out the name of this particular pair of sneakers, I googled them to find out where I can purchase a pair. Of course they were sold out everywhere because they were apart of a limited edition 'Gold Trophy' collection designed in celebration of the World Cup. I was going to give up altogether but the shopaholic in me was up for a challenge.

This week was kind of a crazy one, as always. I have a few dozen projects in the works which I'm excited, yet stressed about. I'm the type of person who likes to stay busy; it's kind of a blessing and a curse. Luckily I'll have a bit of a breather tomorrow when I go to Atlantic City with my grandma for a couple of days for some shopping and relaxation. I love taking small trips throughout the year to kind of break up the work week. The thing about freelancing is that even when I try to stick to a 9-5 schedule, I somehow end up working through the night. I feel like my job is never really finished so I have to consciously tell myself, "unplug and call it quits for the night".

Does anyone have any tips for freelancers? How do you unplug and find a balance? xo
