I want to have a quick chat about what you can except from TLE this coming year.

2016 is going to bring some changes to the blog in the form of content. So I will be off this month getting things ready.

January Playlist 2016


First, I apologize for my lack of posts as of late. I am considering adding some new/different content to the site and since I deemed 2016 the year of the blog, I really want to get it right!

This year I really want to take my blog to the next level when it comes to photography as I’ve not been too happy recently with the that! So I’ve been working on that!

But, in the mean time! Here is my January Playlist for you to jam out to while I get things in order!

How I Edit My Instagram Pictures


Instagram is such a HUGE part of the blog world! At first, my blogging account was all recycled images of blog posts and that was it.  But last year I really started to focus on creating content that was more than just blog photos. I wanted you guys to have a glimpse into my life.

So today, I’m going to walk you though my editing process. Because even though I was totally against it in the beginning, having a “theme” works. It not only makes editing simpler it also makes your images recognizable.

BUT, don’t let that stop you from posting a picture of some scrumptious food your having. I wanna see it!!


I’m pretty particular when it comes to makeup brushes, as I think most are, for me they have to have a certain feel and work a certain way. Once I find a brush that meets those qualities, it earns a permanent spot in my collection! Like.. forever! One of these brushes I have had for almost 13 years!

These are my everyday makeup brushes, the brushes I use without fail no matter what look I’m putting together!

PS. Most of these are pretty affordable!


As promised and a little late but oh wells, my 2015 Beauty Favorites!

If you’ve been about for a while you know that I don’t do monthly favorites and that’s because I don’t try enough things in a month and also because I usually will use something to death when I love it. Kinda like these products!

I made some pretty awesome discoveries/re-discoveries this year!
