Updates: Hypnosis Collab, Weekly Youtube Series, Weekend Challenges

Hi everyone!

Sorry to be so MIA recently. I have been very focused on Youtube and I am happy & excited to have surpassed 100 subscribers! I also have been in the process of arranging various collaborations with other youtubers.

One of the biggest and most exciting collaborations I did was with hypnotist Drew Bissonnette. You can watch part 1 of the hypnosis series we filmed here. There are 4 in total and they are scheduled to be released every Friday!

I also have been planning a fun new series that will be released every Wednesday. I am keeping the name a secret until the first episode is released this Wednesday! I hope you love it!

Oh weekend challenges. How I love you. I really do. Jeff & I will be doing a brand new weekend challenge every week for your enjoyment so keep an eye out for that every weekend and if you have ideas or things you want us to try, leave the suggestions here on this blog post or on my youtube channel, Emily Magaw.

Also, I got a new Influenster box so be on the lookout for that unboxing this weekend as well!

Have a fantastic and delicious day!



Blogger Recognition Award


I was nominated recently for the Blogger Recognition Award by Karalee from Tales of Belle. I really appreciate you nominating me, I was thrilled when I saw it! This is my first award and I want to thank Karalee as well as anyone who follows me or reads my blog!


The Rules:

  1. Write a post to show your award.
  2. Thank the person that nominated you.
  3. Briefly describe your journey as a blogger.
  4. Give advice to other bloggers.
  5. Nominating the deserving ones


Blogger Journey:

I actually started this blog back in 2014 because I loved watching beauty videos and had started subscribing to Birchbox & IPSY. I wrote a few posts but ended up stopping, not 100% sure why. Fast forward to about 2 months ago when I started blogging again and uploading videos to my youtube channel Emily Magaw. I mostly started blogging and filming as a distraction from the trying to get pregnant fiasco that has been my life for over a year & a half. I will write a blog on my infertility journey at another time, but this is the reason why I started becoming more active again. Blogging & filming makes me happy. When you are trying to get pregnant, you need to find things that generate happiness, reduce stress & are fun.

Advice to Bloggers

I recommend writing blogs or filming videos if and only if it makes you happy. If you have a passion for sharing your story & life journey then by all means share, but do it first for yourself and not for other people. Also, I suggest planning ideas ahead of time so you don’t go lengths of time without posts or videos. You can pre-plan blog posts as drafts and post at a later time or schedule your videos after filming maybe 3-4 on the same day to release at different times.

Also, it’s super important to like, comment & subscribe to people who do the same for you. Keep a connection with people, we are all in this together!



I’m nominating the following amazing bloggers:

Taste Tripping Challenge!


So it’s the weekend again which means….another weekend challenge with Jeff & Em!!

I’ve loved doing the Husband Does My Makeup Challenge, Husband Tag, & How Well Do You Know Me Challenge and was definitely ready to do another awesome one!

This one is called the Taste Tripping Challenge and it involves a pill called MBerry, which is a proclaimed “Miracle Fruit”, dissolve on your tongue which makes sour foods taste sweet.

Check out the challenge here!

Also, on the right hand side of the video there is a poll to vote for what you want our next challenge to be, I will check the results Wednesday night & we will do that challenge next Saturday!

Have a delicious & fantastic day!

Target July Beauty Box – Fresh & Fabulous Unboxing!


Whoohoo! I got my second Target July beauty box today, this time the Fresh & Fabulous box. The box is $7 on the Target website and if you have the Target Redcard you save 5%!

I definitely loved this box more then the Simply Radiant box. My favorite item in the box was the NYX Butter Lipstick in the shade Moonlit Night. I put it on during the video and it’s the lipstick I’m wearing in the picture above. It’s really creamy & the shade is awesome!

IPSY July 2016 Glambag Unboxing!

Whoohoo it’s here! 13694050_10153700747416156_30095298_o.jpgI was so thrilled to come home to a new IPSY bag!

What’s IPSY? It’s a beauty subscription service that sends you 4-5 products per month for $10. They also have a fantastic rewards program where you earn points for reviewing the products and then in turn you can redeem those points for more products!

If you are interested in IPSY, I would love if you used my referral link! 

I was super excited to see an eyeliner & an eyeshadow in this bag because majority of the makeup looks I do involve a dark smokey eye.


Have a delicious & fantastic day!


Target July Beauty Box Unboxing: Simply Radiant

Hello everyone!

I received one of the two Target Beauty Boxes in the mail today! It was the Simply Radiant box. The box was $7 but I saved 5% by using my Target RedCard! Also, if you’re interested, it’s STILL AVAILABLE on the Target website!


I overall really liked the box, I mean, how can you not for just $7? However, I was a little disappointed they included multiple shampoos (though one seems to be full size or pretty close to it) and that one of the shampoos smelt horrible.

How Well Do You Know Me Tag!


So Jeff & I had SOOO much fun making the How Well Do You Know Me Tag! Thank you so much to Fauria209 for suggesting it to us! There was ALOT of whip cream pies made and smashed, a lot of laughter, fun & of course some drama! I basically feel like I got a whip cream face mask. I expect my skin to be super soft tomorrow! 🙂

Check it out here!


Have a delicious & fantastic day!


Target Haul!


Hello gorgeous people!

I decided it was prime time to get some new makeup & a few new shirts as well! I’ve been really wanting to try a green eyeshadow look so I picked up a few things to make that happen as well as some other goodies.

Have a great day!
