Atlas Wallet Case for the iPhone 6S


The Atlas by STM is a wallet case for the iPhone with a textured fabric cover to protect from bumps and scratches. One of my favorite features of the Atlas is that the folding cover props the phone up for a stability. Another great features is the integrated card slots for credit cards, ID, or some cash. The Atlas also has micro suction cup closure and microfiber lining protect the screen on your iPhone. The Atlas is currently $34.95 and If you would like more information or to buy the Atlas click here.

Peek Cosmetics Matte Lipstick


I am a huge fan of matte lipstick it has a great staying factor and the colors are bold which I like. I have yet to find a matte lipstick that doesn’t dry out my lips or become flakey.  Peeks Cosmetics offers numerous bold matte colors from bright reds, and blues to nude for an inexpensive $12.  The lipstick formula goes on silky smooth and leaves you with moisturized full-coverage fabulous looking lips.

FAB’s Detox Eye Roller

First Aid Eye

In college I wouldn’t say I crammed at the last minute but I did pull some all nighters studying for an exam or working on a project. As most of you know doing that eventually gives you dark circles under your eyes but I think I found the solution with FAB’s Detox Eye Roller. FAB’s Detox Eye Roller is a metal roller ball that gently distributes lymphatic build-up from underneath the eyes. Within minutes of application, the appearance of the undereye area is improved with more dramatic results over time. For more information or to purchase a FAB’s Detox Eye Roller click here.

ActivESSENCE Fragrance Mist

Active mist

Summer time will still be around after the first day of school so I suggest getting a fragrance mist for the hot days. To stay smelling pretty during back to school check out ActivESSENCE fragrance mist. It comes in a variety of scents and last up to 12 hours so you won’t be that person in the room stinking up the place. It is also time released and has a light mist so you can gage how much you need. ActivESSENCE fragrance mist start at $7.99 and can be purchased here.



I received 2 HALFTEE samples from HALFTEE to check out. I’m not a half tee type of girl but I gave it a go and every time I wear them people ask where I got them. HALFTEE has a great line of half tees that range from casual to dress and perfect for the summer because the fabric is very comfortable. HALFTEEs are very affordable and can be purchased on their site here. I doubt kids can wear these to school but they are super cute for college students.

Michelle Young’s Daily Skincare Regiment

  1. One must establish a daytime program that can remain simple and consistent throughout the winter months. Since the daytime is when we are all exposed to the sun, Young recommends using a good moisturizer with sunscreen such as Eminence Bright Skin Moisturizer SPF 30 , or Jane Iredale’s mineral base.
  2. One must apply intuition as night falls. Young encourages us to ask ourselves “What does my skin feel like? What does it need?”. If you find that your skin feels dry, apply a good moisturizer for dry skin like SkinCeuticals New Triple Lipid Restore.
  3. If you find your skin feeling ‘slackened’, use an anti-aging , firming serum, and crème boost collagen. Young also highly recommends using a bamboo firming fluid and firm skin acai moisturizer to see faster results.
  4. Young says to up the exfoliation! The most effective way to keep that ‘fresh skin glow’ is to keep the dead layer off. Microdermabrasion, micro needling and micronutrients give MACRO results! All can treat this at home with ESPA Refining Skin Polish followed by regenerating moisture complex which keeps skin forward facing, smooth and protected.

Good Luck to all those students going back to school and check back for more Back to School products.
