First off… Chaps BBQ pit beef sandwich was amazing. My mom, dad, and cousin went and ate there and brought my sister and I a sandwich each back. Some of you might not know what pit beef is. It’s Baltimore’s version of BBQ. The beef is grilled, and is crusty on the outside, rare on the inside. It is juicy and delicious. Chaps was rated #1 BBQ in Baltimore for the past 22 years… it had to be good!
As soon as I got it I threw some onions on and dumped some bbq sauce on… or so i thought. it was actually a hot sauce/ketchup combo and it was spicayyyy. I then threw some actual bbq sauce on and this sandwich was divine. I love bbq and this was definitely one of the best! Simple, so tasty.
I am a huge product/makeup junkie and decided to share with you guys my essentials list. Hope you enjoy!
LUSH. I just found this store the other week with my sister at the Annapolis Mall. They use vegetarian and vegan products only and don’t test on animals. I’d heard great things about their products so I went to one of my go-to websites makeupalley.com and looked at some reviews. The lush website also has reviews on all of their products. I always like to check out customer reviews before I purchase anything, it helps me decide if its worth it or not.
I decided on the Dream Cream and the Tea Tree Water Toner.
The Dream Cream is a body moisturizer and its amazing. At first it feels a little thick on your skin but once its absorbed in it is so soft. Even makes my elephant knuckle elbows baby smooth.
I ran out of my toner so I hopted for their Tea Tree Toner and wow this was worth the buy. It refreshes my skin like no other and I feel like it actually is making my face more radiant. I bought the smaller bottle to try first, but when its done i’m definitely getting the big one. Its the perfect toner for my skin. I have normal skin, not too oily or dry so it was a great match.
Makeup wise- here’s my every day go to loot.
I start with Bare Minerals. I’ve been using this product for about 2 or 3 years now and I haven’t found any better. I dont like it when foundation gets thick and notiable. I like the natural look and this has great coverage with natural looking results.
Hoola by Benefit Bronzer. This is my ultimate bronzer. A matte finish, no sparkles or shimmer. It is a great natural color and has no sight of orange to it. HIGHLY recommended.
Shu Uemera eye lash curler. I’ve been cursed with extremely short lashes. I think once in high school a girl asked me if I trim them. Answer? that’d be a big fat no. I do not trim my eyelashes, they are just that short. What has helped them BIG time is this eyelash curler. It grips the eyelashes at the bottom and creates a longggg lash effect on even me! Whenever I get a compliment that my eyelashes look long I practically scream i’m so excited. This curler is the bomb.
Eyeshadow palette of choice? Bobbi Brown’s Shimmering Nudes. This is the best palette i’ve purchased. The colors are so subtle yet are sophisticated at the same time. The dark brown all the way to the right is the best eye liner when you wet the eyeliner side of the brush. So precise and perfect.
Mascara- i’ve tried the expensive, the cheap, and now have found my fav. CoverGirl Lash Blast. Not too pricey, can be found at any drugstore and lengthens like crazy. favorite mascara to date.
blush? NARS orgasm. Kinky sounding, amazing looking. This is the best coral blush and flatters all skin tones. Don’t think i’m kidding when I tell you to rush to your nearest sephora and buy it now.
Scent? My signature scent- Burberry London Original. I have loved this since the first day I smelled it. It is timeless and seasonless and can be worn whenever you please. I buy mine at Marshalls/TJ maxx so it’s not too expensive.
So whats your fav products? I am always on the lookout for some great new finds!
