July Favorites

So where I live July has been hot and humid and icky (well to me anyways). I havn’t been wearing much make up or hair products. Usually, I shower earlier in the day and then just let my hair air dry. And I have also been using beauty products very minimally. This is a short list but I still wanted to do one. Enjoy!
MAC Fix+: I love this stuff. I always keep it in my bag. I love to use it during the day as a refresher. Another thing that I like using it for is after the gym, when I’ve had a hard work out I just spray this on my face and I don’t feel so icky from all the sweat.
Pink Body Lotion in Vanilla and Shea Butter: I got this during the Semi Annual sale, it was only $3. I think they have discontinued it and honest this is so sad. I think this used to be in their organic line. I think that it was called nourishing. This stuff smells amazing!!! It smells like cake frosting. I love to put this all over my skin after I hop out of the shower. I also love it because it’s a very light weight lotion. If you can find this, pick it up.
Flip flops: I love these in the summer. I really love the ones from Old Navy. They come in so many colors and it is such a good value. I just simply love these. They have been my go to shoes this month.
What I’m Looking Forward To:
School Starting: I love school. I think I have always been the kid who loved going back to school. I love going back to school shopping and the first day. I’m just excited to be going back after not taking any summer classes.
Fall: I love fall. The weather is getting cooler, the leaves are changing colors (well depending on where you live), and the fashion. I love neutral colors, so fall fashion is my favorite. I also love the layered look with sweaters and scarves. Also my birthday is in the fall.
Getting my Macbook: I feel so behind, everyone I know has a Macbook. Not that I don’t enjoy the computer that I have, it’s just on its last leg I feel. Saving money is hard when you love to shop, but I understand this is something that I want and need so I will have to make it work!

Tiny Rant/Revelation

So, have you ever really wanted something but have the hardest time saving up for it because there are so many things that you think are important that get in the way of you buying it. This happens to me all the time. My laptop is a piece of poo. I would have to have the white Macbook because its so cute and easy to carry around for school. This laptop is over $1000 and where has the money gone that I wanted to use for it…to make up more importantly MAC. Now don’t get me wrong, I love MAC. I think MAC is a great company and they have great products and I love them. But, mostly all of the makeup I own is MAC and let me tell you, that all adds up. Now shouldn’t someone who needs a new laptop be using that hard-earned cash to get a new one…nope she’s buying 3 $14 lipsticks because they will just complete her life. My fall semester starts in less than a month and I am still using this laptop that overheats, crashes, will just randomly restart when it feels like it and has scary noises sometimes. I am putting myself on a mini MAC/high end make up ban. There are so many other brands and products out there that I am not opening myself up to. So I am going to start to try being more money conscious when it comes to beauty products because I feel like you don’t need to spend that much to have the pay off you get with high end products.
I just need to keep reminding myself, my laptop is what I need. I can get through the month without buying another MAC product. I can get the laptop to get the good grades to get the awesome job where I can just buy whatever I want. And with this new "ban" I'll be able to save my money and buy the things I really need.
I will definitely be posting more reviews and more updates on how I’m doing with this.


Wednesday, August 4, 2010


So it has been so long since I last updated my blog. Well I have been working a lot this summer. I can’t work a lot during the school year because I have school Monday – Thursday. I work a lot in the summer so I can save so when I go to school in the fall I can afford to work less hours. That is not a good reason for not updating my blog but it is the true reason.
So I have been thinking a lot about blogs that I would like to be doing. I deffinatly want to do a back to school blog series. Fall is my favorite time of the year so I will deffinetly be having some fashion and beauty essentials up. I want to try to get some more product reviews up and some more fun tags as well. I promise to not neglect my blog like this every again!!!

June Favorites

 Here are my June favorites....Enjoy!

L’Oreal 360 Go Clean Deep Cream Cleanser – This has actually been my everyday face wash and I love it. It just makes my face feel so clean. I love the scrubber that comes with it, I feel like it helps clean out my pores more. I still want to buy the other two that are in this line the regular face wash and the exfoliater one.
Sweet Little Lies – this is Lauren Conrad’s second book in her LA Candy series. I seriously read this book in a few days. I could have done it in two, it was such a quick read and I loved it. I am sad that I have to wait till October for the third one. I recommend this series to anyone who is looking for a juicy series to get into.
Pretty Little Liars – I love this show. I have gotten so many people hooked on this show. Personally, I think this is the best show that has been on ABC Family in a while. This has been the show I have been watching on Tuesdays in place of Glee. I love this show; it’s always keeping me on my toes. I have heard that this is also a series of books that I would love to read but I want to wait for this season to be over so I don’t spoil the show for myself.
Pandora Radio – I know this has been around for awhile but I have just stumbled on it recently and I think that it’s great. I love how it just makes a radio station for what you just want to hear. Sure the commercials every couple of songs is annoying but I think that this is awesome. Another plus is that it’s free.
Hipness Blush – This is from MAC’s To the Beach collection. I love this blush. It’s a pinky peach and I think that it’s great for summer. I know that this is sold out online, but I went to my MAC counter today and they still had it. I think that this is a great blush for the summer; I also think that it will look great with sun kissed skin. This was one of my must haves from that collection.
Lazy Days Lipstick – This was another one of my must haves from this collection. I love this lipstick lately. I have been wearing it alone and under a few lip glosses I have. I think that this is a perfect summer pink lip. It does remind me a lot of Crème Cup from MAC, which was my first MAC lipstick ever so it will always hold a special place in my heart. But I do like this for summer, I have been wearing it every day so I’ll probably only have it for summer. I also saw that this was still available at my MAC counter. I think if you don’t have it you should go pick it up because it will be a great color to have.
Twilight Saga: Eclipse – OMG!!!! Yes I went to the midnight showing and I loved it. The theater that I went to was showing Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse. It was such a good deal. Twilight started at 7 so you got to watch that, then New Moon, the Eclipse at midnight! I don’t want to say anything to spoil it for someone who hasn’t seen it yet. This was the best movie yet! If you haven’t seen it then go, trust me you will not be disappointed.

What I'm Looking Forward To in July:
MAC In the Grove Collection – I have a friend who is a MAC artist and she let me play around with some of the products that will be coming out. I love the mineralized eye shadows they are so much better than the previous formulas. They are very smooth, not clumpy at all. I also can’t wait for the MSFs because they all look amazing. This collection launches on the 7th.
Going to see Eclipse again – yes again!!! I loved it...what else can I say.

Nail of the Day: Essie's Pop Art Pink

This is my first NOTD post. I usually change my polish every week so this is in a sense the nail polish of the week. I do my nails at home; I don’t see the point in going in and getting them done at salons. I do like to pamper myself from time to time though, so sometimes I will go and get a mani and pedi but those trips are usually rare.

This week I have on a Pop Art Pink by Essie and its from Essie’s The Art of Spring Collection. I simply adore this color. It is a great pale pink. I do have three coats of it on though. The initial coat was very sheer, but after the second coat, you do get a color pay off. I just like three because I fell as if the two coats are semi streaky so I just live to even everything out. I have this color on my toes too with 3 coats as well. The only downfall I see to it is I feel like it dries soft. This might be because of the 3 coats or the fact that my top coat is old and I’m in need a new one. I just feel like if I do hit my nails on something I have knicks. Also, when I touch it with my other nail, I feel like its cutting through the polish. This post has now turned into a mini review. I do like this color and wear it a lot, I will just have to try it with a new top coat and maybe that will do the trick. In all, I think that this is a great color but I’m not too fond on the polish formulation itself.

Review: L’oreal Go 360 Clean Deep Cream Cleanser

So I had saw a lot of people talking about this face wash and I wanted to give it a try. I saw that it was around $6 and was a little indecisive about it. I am a coupon clipper and proud of every penny I save. I saw that there was a coupon in my Sunday paper a while ago for $1 off any L’oreal product. So after I had gotten that I went to my local Target and purchase it. It was also on sale for around $4 I think and with the coupon, I only spent around $3 for it. So to me this was a great deal. I initially only got this one because of two reasons. One was because it was pink. The other was because I have a daily face wash that I had been using and this was a cream. I have dry combination skin so I thought the cream cleanser would be good for me and rehydrate my skin while being a deep cleanser. So I picked it up and read more about it. It says that it helps clean pore by pore and make them visibly smaller. So after seeing this I knew that I needed it.
I have used this cleanser about 5 times now and I absolutely love it. I think that it’s the best cleanser I have ever used. The little scrubbie thing is great to. I really feel like its working in to my skin with that. The cleanser has a tingly feeling and I think that really helps me to know that I am getting a deep clean. As far as my pores, I do think that there is an improvement to them. They look smaller and I feel like its really helped with the blackheads that I had in my T-zone. I also like the smell the cleanser has to it. I also have noticed that I can just use it at night when I get home from a long day and not only does it clean off all my make up from the day, it also really refreshes my face.
I would recommend this to everyone. Before this, I have never tried any of their products before and I love these face washes. I plan to buy the orange one, which is the exfoliater and the green one which is the daily cleanser. I will also do a review on the other ones when I get them. I also want to try out other products that they carry so if anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them.

Upcoming Collections: MAC Venomous Villains

So if you are anything like me, you check Temptalia religiously (by religiously I mean at least twice a day if not more). I saw on twitter yesterday that she had a link posted to something about MAC and Disney and a makeup collection. I immediately clicked the link and was brought to her page. I have to say I got a little excited reading about this upcoming collection. Then I was on COCO Perez and even he had something up about it. That’s when I knew that this collection is going to be a huge deal. I thought To The Beach was going to be the big collection most people would be running out to fetch up. I am so wrong. If you can take a guess by the blogs that I have posted, I am a huge MAC junkie. I love the company and I love the product. I get even more excited about the new collections and I count down the days until I can go purchase it. So I hate to say that I am a little torn about this collection but nothing to dramatic. The collection is going to be called called Venomous Villains and the hype around it is already huge. So why am I so torn? It’s a collection surrounded by villains. Now I am sure there will be tons of purples, grays, blacks, greens, and hopefully some reds to spice up the collection. I am also certain that there will be great colors and awesome products and you know I will be there the day it comes out to purchase everything in sight! I wish maybe that a collection/colab with Disney would be a happy one. Maybe one with fairy tales, princesses, and happy endings. Never the less I do think that this will be a great collection and I am really looking forward to it. Trust me I will be there the day the collection comes out to pick up everything. I do hope there will be some sort of cute packaging to go along with this collection. In all, I think that this will be a highly anticipated collection and I know I can’t wait till photos and promo items come out. There is a video clip out for now for a promotional piece. It’s has sketches of some of the villains that I would safely guess that are going to be featured in the collection. I did see Cruella from 101 Dalmatians and Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. Other ones that come to mind of Disney Villains are the Queen from Snow White, Captain Hook from Peter Pan, Scar from Lion King and Jafar from Aladdin. I think that they will be using the villains from classic Disney. I am not to sure about how many of the newer villains the will use because of the demographic that MAC portrays to. I’m 22 years old and I have no clue who the newer villains are so I am not to sure who they will be using but like I said my guess is that it will be the classic ones.  I’ll be sure to keep everyone posted and up to date with collections and anything else that happens.  

Here is a link to the promo video that MAC has placed out.

Things I’m Looking Forward To: May/June

 So, this is something that I will not only be doing every month but also everytime a new collection is coming out or something else that I am super excited about coming out. This one is for both the end of May and the whole month of June.
MAC To The Beach Collection – this is the highly anticipated MAC collection of the summer. I have to say that I am very excited as well for this collection. has all the pictures and swatches for this collection. I’ll be putting up another post later about each item I am planning on getting and then when I do get them I will be doing a haul/review on them. I do think that this will be a great collection for the summer and I think something that I will still love will be used in the fall too.
Eclipse – Not only am I a make-up fanatic, I am also a Twilight freak ( and I mean freak in the way that I am obsessed).  I can’t wait for this movie to come out. I know I’m going to go see it on the night that it comes out on.
LA Candy – I love to read. When I’m in school I usually have no time to read because I am way to busy reading and studying for all of my classes to read on my own free time. I like to wait for like my summer breaks and winter breaks to read. I loved Lauren Conrad on the Hills, so when I saw that she had wrote some books I decided to get them. Right now I am just getting started on LA Candy and its already a great book and I love it.

Aprils 8 Most Worn Things

So this is something that I will be doing every month along with a monthly favorites. I don’t know if I’m going to post them back to back or space them out more…I have to see how the flow is going with me. Some upcoming things I am working on are my April Favorites, a few reviews and some more new tags!!!

1) most worn lipstick/ lipgloss –this month I would have to say one of the lipsticks from MAC Liberty of London collection in the cover ever hip. My most worn lip gloss this month is the ones that I got fom Bath and Body Works from the Summer Vanilla collection. I love them, berry is my favorite!

2) most worn earrings – I try and switch up my earring everyday, but I feel like the ones I have been reaching for this month has just been a pair of pearl studs. I think that they have just gone good with everything. Very class and elegant!

3) most worn shirt – this month it has been the boyfriend v-necks from target. (I think they are buy Mosimo maybe???) I wear these everyday because I basically have them in every color that they have. They are so great you can dress them up or down or with leggings and I love that. They are also super comfy.

4) most worn nail polish – I like to switch up my nail polish a lot too. I got the Essie spring collection so I have been rotating them a lot but one I keep falling in love with is the Lilacism and Pop Art Pink. They are so great, a little sheer, but that is perfect for spring.

5) most worn shoes – this month it has been a pair of gladiator sandals I got at a Payless they are gold and I have a silver pair but I find myself wearing the gold ones more for some reason. They are cute and funny and comfy. I love them.

6) most worn hair product – besides the usual that I use (heat protecting), I have been loving  herbal essence products in the volumizing one which is the Body Envy. I love the mousse and the hairspray…they smell so yummy and give my hair great volume.

7) most worn perfume – I have been in love with Midnight Fantasy by Britney Spears. It smells like a mix between vanilla and fruity/candy…so perfect for summer!!!

8) most worn handbag/ purse – the purse that I have carried everyday this month is my black one  from forever 21. I love it because it’s huge and I love a big bag. It has 3 compartments and it is sooooo roomy!!!

Legally Bronzed Review

So I walked into Sephora and I stumbled upon this. I actually have been looking for a new highlighter and bronzer so I thought for the price this would be a great deal. I do love benefits products, I do think that some things can be over priced but with them, you are paying for the quality of the items.
 High Beam – So I think that this is a great product. Definitely a must have in my book! I think that this is the best highlighter. Before I had this, I have been using MAC shroom eye shadow as a highlighter or different MAC beauty powders. This is so perfect for giving you a great glow. What I have found that works best for application is using a foundation brush. I take some out with the wand and place some on my hand and then using the brush to apply in a patting motion. If you can’t find this kit this is something that is definitely worth purchasing.
Hoola Bronzer – I tried this and I do like it. I feel like I am still a bit to light skinned but I know as soon as I take a few trips to the tanning salon I can pull this off for an all over coverage. This does work great for me now for contouring. This is also a must have I think. There are so many bronzers out there that have a shimmer and this one is a matte. This is a great product too just to have because I think everyone needs a good matte bronzer. So like I said with the high beam, if you can’t find this kit, I think this would be a great product to have.
Bad Gal Lash in brown – This honestly didn’t really impress me at all. This was my first time using any of the Bad Gal mascara. Maybe because it was brown and I usually use a black. I am willing to give the black one a try and see if I do like it.
Gilded – This is a very versatile pencil. I have used it as an all over lid color for a cute and fun neutral eye. It has that like an orangey apricot glow. You can also use this as a lip color and pair it with a nude lipgloss…I think that it is really cute and great for summer. I don’t know if this is a product you should go run out and buy but it is definitely a great bonus that comes with this set.
