It’s Like EuroTrip, Expect Not At All

In the past I have talked about my plans to backpack through Europe. Over time those plans have changed… and then changed… and then changed again. Finally, though, they are settled. In a months time I will jump on a plane and head to London. I have never been anywhere in Europe, so I am looking to all of you! I do have a few things planned, but PLEASE let me know any suggestions for places to go or things to see while I am abroad.

Check out where I plan on visiting.

Sam Smith: A Soon-To-Be Household Name

He may only be 22, but Sam Smith will soon be the name on everyone’s lips… or at least everyone’s Spotify. Shooting to fame in 2012 after being featured on Disclosure’s single “Latch”, Sam Smith has gone on to quickly make a name of his own.

He released an EP last summer and will release his album “In the Lonely Hour” on June 17 here in the United States (it is already released elsewhere). I have had the opportunity to listen to the full album, thanks to YouTube, and it is simply beautiful. Sam Smith doesn’t write songs for those who have had their hearts broken, rather he writes them for those who are still waiting to experience love. It is a beautiful album, and one that I recommend everyone download come its release.

In my humble opinion, the most refreshing thing about Sam Smith is his honesty. He doesn’t try and hide his sexuality, which is a rare occasion for a newcomer in this industry. Check out a few of my favorite songs off of his new album below.

What are your thoughts on Sam Smith? Let us know in the comment section.

Miss Us?

1

Oh my, this is embarrassing. Who would have thought we would be gone for so long!? Let us explain…

We are both students and have had quite the busy three weeks. With classes, finishing up internships, taking finals and preparing for graduation, we had to hold tight on posting. We are so sorry, but we hope you still love us!

The important thing is this: IT’S SUMMER! So get ready, because Potpourri Daily is back and better than ever.

My New Love MAC Patisserie

Final.jpg

 

I couldn’t help but pick up MAC Patisserie lipstick the other day, I have been lusting over it for ages.

Anna from Viviannadoesmakeup.com has gushed over this lipstick, and then I saw Judy from Judyandmakeup.com was raving about it as well. I have to say I am so pleased with the lipstick; it’s the perfect natural everyday color for my lips. I can’t stop wearing this shade because it works well with a natural look or a smokey eye.

Patisserie is a luster finish and applies a sheer wash of color to the lips. It is moisturizing and is just a gorgeous nude pink. I’m in love!

Have you tried Patisserie? What other nude lipsticks would you recommend?

In A Snap

photo 1My Venus Snap VoxBox arrived in the mail today and I couldn’t be more excited! I’ve seen other bloggers talk about the Gillette Venus Snap Razor and how little and cute it was. Who doesn’t love little, cute things whether it’s mini makeup or a mini razor?

Snap 2.jpgI received this Snap Razor complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.  The razor retails for $9.99 at Target and varies in price at different stores. It’s an extremely small razor that comes in a compact for easy travel. The razor has five blades which get every hair. This razor is designed for someone who is on the go. The moisture strip needs a little water but then it glides smoothly and gives a nice clean shave. I think this will definitely come in handy because I am always missing spots while I shave in the shower. It’s perfect for travel and to throw in your bag because you never know when you need to shave.

I will definitely be keeping my Snap Razor in my bag.

What are your thoughts on the razor? Would you try it?

The Worst BFF Quiz

It’s Tuesday, so you know what that means! Wait… you don’t? Oh. Let me tell you!

We have a new video posted on YouTube!

A schedule has finally been decided on, which means you can expect new videos every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday. For the video today we decided to take a best friend quiz. It wasn’t just any best friend quiz, though. It was possibly the worst one one the web… we probably should have read the questions over first. Enjoy!
