The results of 2016 “Shop Your Stash”

July 6th, 2016

I finished playing “Shop Your Stash” lip product challenge back in mid April, but I’ve been very busy since moving out to the desert and have also been spending a lot of time writing so Youtube and my blog have taken a backseat. I was hoping to shoot some videos a couple weeks ago when I had time…and then my AC the desert…for 7 days…and every day was 107+ degrees…god why?
