Fave 5: A collaborative blogger video Series- My Top 5 Lipsticks

October 28, 2015

Favorite makeup , Blogger series: Week 1- Lipsticks

When my blogger friend Britt, ( Brittney Mason of  The Pretty Plus) asked me if I wanted to do a collaboration for a YouTube series, I’ll admit I was a little scared. Making a YouTube video is nerve wracking people! So here it goes!

There will be three bloggers participating in this collaboration, including myself.  The first is Brittney Mason, mentioned above- the god mother of plus size #ootd’s and  the sweet and bubbly, Ashley Wottring of Fashionately Me.

We  will be releasing a new video each Wednesday for the next 10 weeks on a different beauty topic/category of products. I’ll also be adding in a cocktail to each week’s video, because. . .  cocktails.

This weeks cocktail was a Spiced Apple Rum Cider. Super easy and WAY better than a pumpkin spice latte! Ingredients are as follows:

  • 2 oz. Spiced Rum (I used Captain Morgan)
  • 1/2 Amaretto Disaronno
  • 2 0z apple cider
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tbsp Lockerbean’s Vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp honey or other sweetener (optional)
  • handful of fresh apple slices/chunks.
  • Build over ice, shake and serve in pimp cup.
