    So Fresh and So Clean!

    WELCOME TO THE NEW (& IMPROVED) OH MY SAMCAKE! I am coming at your from my brand new domain, ohmysamcake.com. I wanted to do something that would really solidify who I am, and what I want to produce for you. Having the “.wordpress.com” on my name wasn’t the worst thing in the world, but I really love the way it looks without it. Don’t you agree? As stated in my “Ch-ch-changes” post, I have been working with a really great graphic designer named Lindsay to help put something together to represent the vibe I want to give off.

    Friday Fave – Dry Shampoo For The WIN!

    I can remember one of my first experiences with dry shampoo.

    My Beauty Routine – The Basics

    Make-up is not something I wear every day. I think it's because I leave for work at a time that I find early in the morning (usually around 7am I'm out the door), and I'm not awake enough to try and even put make up on. One of my best friends, Alyssa, can start work at 6:45am (not leave the house, but actually start work) and have a beautiful face of make up. Her eyeliner/eyeshadow is ALWAYS on point. I don't think I've seen a day for her where it hasn't been. Apparently she can get up early enough. I, on the other hand, am not a morning person.

    FRIDAY FAVES – Rimmel London

    Lipstick. I have a love/hate relationship with lipstick. I've bought my fair share of lipstick. I've never been a beauty guru, so I've always gone for whatever the local Shopper's Drug Mart has (and usually has on sale). For a while - aka about ten years - I was a smoker. And I always found my problem was smoking with lipstick. It would come off on my cigarette, on my teeth - everything. I could never find one I enjoyed.
