Phyrra – brings you the Best in Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands! She includes MAC dupes & companies that ship Worldwide!

Vampy Varnish – loves the new bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipsticks and thinks you will find some shades you like as well!

Gouldylox Reviews – Ever heard of a self-tanning body wash? Me either. It’s definitely different…

Lipglossiping – will always appreciate lovely candles and tasty fried breakfasts. But both at the same time? Bacon-scented candles? Hmmm…

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by Nouveau Cheap – Gradient nails can be challenging to execute, but this lovely, 70s-inspired look by Sarah at Chalkboard Nails only requires two colors–even I may be able to pull this one off!
