A Peek Inside My Beauty Case

My SOHO Beauty Case is packed full of cosmetics that I've bought, won, and reviewed over the years. Like every other makeup wearer out there, I have my favorites and here they are in no particular order.     

This BB Cream is an all-in-one solution that provides a light, natural coverage and has a nice scent. It contains six skin-perfecting benefits. It hydrates my skin and also protects it against UV damage with SPF 15. 

This water-based, oil-free, talc-free, paraben-free, and fragrance-free foundation provides wonderful coverage that lasts all day. 

This coordinating trio creates the perfect eye look. This "how to" palette is created to highlight, define, and accentuate. The colors go together nicely and go on nicely as well. 

This professional, multi-use Color Play Palette contains 36 powder eye shadows, 12 lip colors, 3 powder blushes, and a bronzer. I can create so many different looks with this one palette. However, I believe that this particular palette is no longer available at Sephora.  

This mascara coats my lashes individually using a hour-glass shaped brush, giving them a bold look with a lot of volume and definition and no clumps.  

This lip tint is a hybrid between a stain, a gloss and a rich balm. It goes on like a gloss, stays on like a stain, and hydrates like a balm. It looks very natural on my lips and doesn't feel clumped up. 

This long lasting super-pigmented lipstick formula contains vitamins C and E. It's created from an Aloe Vera base. This is a very beautiful, natural looking color. It goes on smoothly and is hydrating.  

This is the makeup that I've used the longest. It covers like a liquid but goes on like a powder. It's nonacnegenic and hypoallergenic. It provides a beautiful matte finish. 

This Special Effects Face Powder goes on flawlessly, giving my skin a nice subtle sunlit radiance or a lift-from-within glow if you will. I can swirl all the shades together with the included brush or enhance my skin one shade at a time.  

If we took a peek inside your makeup case, what might we find?

At-A-Glance Product Review

**Disclosure: I received an At-A-Glance Monthly Planner and an At-A-Glance Wall Calendar from as a member of the Shoplet Product Review Program. No other compensation was received. I was not influenced in any way and all opinions expressed are my own.**

At-A-Glance has been part of the ACCO Brands family of industry leading planning solutions for over 150 years and has been helping busy individuals like myself and businesses plan and organize their lives with their daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly calendars, planners, appointment books, and organizers. You'll find a variety of At-A-Glance products at The At-A-Glance planning collection was designed to help you celebrate your accomplishments and allow you to stand out as a trendsetter who has it all together. This line represents planning enthusiasts, list makers, and multi-taskers who believe less is more...but doesn't have to look that way. 

This stylish collection includes a sleek, professional 2015 monthly planner that will help you plan a well-organized, successful year. This planner measures 8-1/2 x 11 inches and has a seemingly well made smooth cover. The pages are printed on quality paper containing 30% post-consumer waste using vegetable based inks. The monthly tabs allow me to easily find the month I'm looking for, which is something that I hadn't had with any of my previous planners. At the beginning of each month, there is a monthly calendar with open writing blocks and a notes section. This planner features one week per two-page spread with ruled writing space and a notes section. There is plenty of room under each day to write things down. I've had previous planners that listed times in this section as well, which is something that I did not like. For example, my last monthly planner listed a time on every other line, starting at 8 o'clock and ending at 5 o'clock. Sometimes my day starts early and ends late so I'm glad this At-A-Glance monthly planner did not include specific times in this section. It does however list the holidays, which I find very helpful. There are past and future month references throughout this planner. At the front of this planner, there is a 3 year reference that goes all the way up to 2016, as well as a personal profile page for me to include my name, address, phone number, and email in case I would ever misplace it. In the back of the planner, there are pages dedicated to my contacts, notes, event calendar, holiday list, and US time zones and area codes. There is also a plastic poly pocket in the back of this planner which will surely come in handy for many things. All in all, this is a very stylish, sturdy planner that will help me keep my hectic life organized better in 2015.

The At-A-Glance planning collection also includes a 2015 wall calendar. This is a big calendar and measures 12 x 16-1/4 inches. It features a monthly grid on each page with lined blocks and past and future month reference. It starts the day of the week on Sunday rather than on Monday but this is what I prefer. The pages are perforated so at the end of each month I can cleanly tear the page from the calendar. This calendar also features a smooth black headband with a copper hanging grommet so it easily hangs from a nail, tack, etc.  There is also plenty of room at the top of each month's page where you can add notes, quotes, doodles, etc. You could also let your kids, grand kids, etc. personalize this space for you. This wall calendar is made very well. The pages are thick and sturdy and not flimsy. My ink pen did not bleed through the pages. All in all, this calendar is going to make a great addition to my cubicle in 2015. is the first place I check when I'm looking for office supplies or office stationary. You'll also find a vast supply of promotional products at, including top promotional products under $1.00, all of which can be personalized for your business needs. In addition, also carries medical supplies, including products to aid in mobility and bath safety.
