Yes To Coconut Collection | Hydrate & Restore

As the seasons change, so do the products I use. In the summertime, I tend to lean towards fruity, fresh scents that instantly make me feel like I'm on the beach, even when I'm not. The needs of my skin also change during the Summer, leaving my skin craving refreshing, moisture rich products that can rejuvenate it after spending hours in the sun. Enter Yes To Coconut. I have been avidly using the Yes To brand since the moment I spotted their Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes on Target's shelves. My skin comes in contact with enough toxins throughout the day, so finding a natural, paraben-free line of products was major. When I saw Yes To was releasing a new collection, Yes to Coconut, I was seriously giddy. Like I said, I love using products with fruity scents during the summer, and coconut is my all-time favorite.

Travel with MCBL | Vacation Series

J.Crew Sandals | Victoria's Secret Bikini | Wildfox Sunglasses

As many of you know by now I'm going on a girl's trip with my best friends in a couple of weeks. It's been well over a decade since a couple of us have been friends yet we've never managed to plan a vacation together. Between school, work, boyfriends, and life, we all have pretty hectic schedules so trying to find time to plan an entire trip isn't that simple. In June I took a road trip to Michigan with my friend Nicole to visit her family, and we decided it was time we made something happen. A few text messages, squeals, and days later we somehow managed to all have our flights booked to Myrtle Beach.

I thought this trip would be a great opportunity to host a vacation series on MCBL. Packing and preparing for a vacation is quite the art form and I wanted to share my tips and tricks with all of you! And I'm hoping I can learn a few things from you guys, because trust me I can use all of the help I can get. Stay tuned for the series next week! xo

Launch of The Mascara Report | A Beauty & Make-Up News Site

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.
