Have a Question? Ask!

June 5th will be my blogaversary! I’m so excited and I can’t believe how fast the time has gone by! I started blogging as an outlet and hobby, and you all have kept me going. I really appreciate all the support and kind words that you have for me!

I thought that this would be a good time to let you get to know me better. On my blogaversary, I will be doing an #AskAyesha video in which I will answer any (appropriate) questions that you may have. They can be personal, career, beauty, or really any type of question that you want.

Ways to ask questions:

  1. Leave a comment in the comment section of this post
  2. Leave a comment in the YouTube comment section of the video below
  3. Ask question on Twitter, but be sure to include #AskAyesha
  4. Leave a comment on my Facebook fan page

I’m so excited to do this video, so make sure you get your questions in on or before June 4th.

Nail of the Day: Essie First Timer

essie-first-timer

It’s been awhile, I know! Sorry for my little leave of absence, I had a death in the family and traveled a little bit. I am back now, so I promise I will make up for it!

Today’s nail of the day is a beauty. Essie’s First Timer is part of their Resort Collection which they usually release every year around this time. I absolutely love this color! It is definitely a bright green, but it has turquoise undertones, making it different than any other polish I own. Upon first seeing it, I thought it was similar to Essie Mojito Madness (click HERE to see), but this is lighter, brighter, and more blue. I personally really like Essie’s formula, and this one was no exception. It applied well and wore for a few days before chipping. I also purchased In the Cabana from this collection, but I haven’t tried it yet. When I do, I’ll be sure to post a picture here on the blog or on Instagram (username: SimpleBeautyYT).

What’s your favorite green nail polish?

Illamasqua Blushes in Excite & Tweak

illamasqua-excite-tweak

During the Chic Week sale at Sephora  a few weeks ago, I picked up two blushes from Illamasqua. (Click HERE to see the other items I purchased). I have always heard good things about Illamasqua, but had never given them a chance. Blushes and lipsticks are my favorite makeup items to buy, so while I had the 15% off coupon, I decided to buy Excite and Tweak blushes. Keep reading for swatches and comparisons.
