Shop Smarter, Not Harder


I didn't major in Finance nor am an expert at saving money. I'm bad at couponing but I'm okay in math. I get so excited when I see savings on my receipt, and see cash back on my Ebates. I'm always about finding the best bang for my buck, who doesn't?!
I also want what's best for my buck. If I'm about to spend some money, I want to make sure that these products are top quality without breaking the bank. I love, love, love to shop and as I get older, I surely have become smarter where to bet my money on.
I hope these shopping tips I'm about to share with you, which you may or may not do already, is helpful and informative enough so you can also shop smarter.

Mini Bag Must-Haves

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own.

I recently have downsized to a smaller purse. Carrying a smaller handbag also meant downsizing the stuff I bring with me. This was a huge change for me since I usually just throw everything that I think I'll need throughout the day in my purse. But having limited space, makes me think twice, and be more strategic of what I bring so I can use up every inch of space in that small bag.

So keep reading if you'd like to know what are my

Herpecin Lip Protectant is not just for Cold Sores

*This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own*


I don't really get cold sores but I do get chapped lips all year long. Hence, I never leave the house without a lip balm in my purse. I never go to bed without drenching my lips on lip balm. I always apply a lip balm before and after wearing a lipstick. After I shower, brush my teeth, after a meal, etc. I am pretty picky with my lip balms too, and I'm so glad to have been introduced to this very affordable lip balm that my lips and wallet are totally loving!
isn't just for those who suffer from cold sores, keep reading to learn more about this magical li'l tube!

Personal Post: What's up with INSTAGRAM ?!?

One of the things I love about blogging is that I work on my own time. I don't have a schedule, I go on my own pace and sometimes there are no deadlines in regards to blog posts. A lot of bloggers I follow are great with being on schedule, always have a post up every week, updating their social medias all the time...not me. My dogs do keep me in a routine at home but when it comes to blogging, I don't sit in front of my computer to write a post unless I am in a zone and have an idea of what I want to write.
On that note, I wanted to mention even though I am not posting here, I am sharing mini-reviews on my Instagram: @fivetwobeauty_

I Am Awesome, Unique, Strong, Perfect... with RealHer Cosmetics


I've been very distracted (and lazy) lately and have neglected my blog. Now I got the holiday-mode out of my system, I do feel refreshed now. I don't have big plans or goals for this year, I actually want to take it easy... Well more of like -- see how it goes instead of pressuring myself to get more likes and readers by end of the month or year OR get as many paid posts which can get overwhelming since those come with due dates.

On that note, let's begin with today's post which is a makeup review on a brand that I'm really excited to share with you! Most of you may have seen it already all over my Instagram, and know that I love what this brand stands for. Keep reading to see what I think of
