Traveling to Rainbow Row, Magnolia and Boone Plantations

Rainbow Road, Magnolia Plantation and Boone Plantation // Mocha and Moccasins

One of my favorite things about blogging is being able to share my memories online. Some of my greatest memories come from traveling with my family. We’ve been going to different places ever since I was a baby, and last summer was no exception. We visited Myrtle Beach, Savannah, Georgia and Charleston, just to name a few.

I almost forgot to finish up this traveling series from Summer 2015, so today I’m sharing our stop at Rainbow Row, Magnolia Plantation and Boone Plantation.

And don’t forget to subscribe to my channel if you want to see more beauty videos in the future!

Green Color Corrector Battle (High vs. Low)

We’ve all seen those crazy colored faces with shades of lavender, green, pink and orange strokes and dots brushed on. I’ve dabbled in the orange/yellow tones, which surprisingly worked well for the under eye area, also a bit of purple, but that just didn’t do much for me, but my favorite one to use has to be the green color corrector.
