A Palette & A Partner - Week 21

This week's group is a little colorful with one palette holding down the classic neutrals position. Over the last twenty-one weeks, I have made adjustments to the weekly palette rotation and I thought I create a system that was usual for me and where palettes would be utilized in a more expeditious and consistent manner. But here's the thing. I have over 355 palettes and this number is calculated after two rather difficult declutters. I decluttered eyeshadow palettes, lip products. foundations, etc. Becuase I am constantly picking up palettes, the number of unused palettes continues to grow. So new plan!!!! Every month I will choose two palettes to use the entire month and along with those two palettes I will add another 3 as a part of  Weekly Palette Rotations. I am almost finished reading Marie Kondo's book and I am looking forward to ridding myself of unnecessary things.

YouTuber of the Week - Vintage or Tacky (Cora Alvillar)


Hey there my beautiful bougie babes,

I haven't been doing the YouTuber the week recently because I haven't been moved or inspired by any particular YouTuber and....in walks Vintage or Tacky. Cora's channel, Vintage or Tacky features both beauty and fashion. She does everything from tutorials, to try on's and fashion shows, hauls, product reviews, etc. Her talent and knowledge are impressive, but what really caught my attention was her genuine, but not cocky confidence. I have struggled with my weight for ten years and when I saw Cora trying on swimsuits for larger sized women I was jealous. Yes, jealous! I admit it. She exhibited something I have been desperately seeking for years and she exudes a sort of "boss babe swagger". She is an honest and thorough product reviewer, a fun and outgoing individual, a person who gives practical and functional beauty advice and she is bad to the bone! She has inspired me in a personal way and I deeply appreciate her impact on my life. Please check out her most recent video below!
