Hair, Haul, and Vids!

Hi everyone!  Today was my day off, and I was able to pamper myself by getting my hair cut/highlighted and going shopping!  I'll be posting a collective haul video later tonight that includes the elf haul I promised as well as some stuff I picked up from Old Navy and Forever 21 today.  I love both of these stores for their low-priced clothing and accessories.  I got some cute new clothes for fall!  I'm also going to post  a response video to emilynoel83 on her fall loves tag video.  Some questions for everyone out there:
  1. What do you like to do on your day off from school/work to relax?
  2. What are your favorite things about fall?
  3. What product/clothing trends are you excited about for fall?
Any comments/responses would be greatly appreciated!  If you have any questions/suggestions don't be afraid to let me know :)

New YT Vids!

Hi everyone! So if you follow my channel on YouTube, you know that I have uploaded 3 new videos today!  They're all pretty short, so they won't take a long time to watch. The first 2 are the final videos in my Lip Product Extravaganza series, finishing up with lipstick and then lip markers/pencils.  Because my lip pencils were not showing up true to their color on my hand, I'm posting the following pictures to give you a better idea of what they look like:

The photo above is me wearing the Clinique Chubby Stick in "Super Strawberry."  As you can see, it is pretty sheer and gives a very glossy appearance to the lips.

This photo is of me wearing the Milani Lip Flash Gloss Pencil in "In A Flash."  Again, this gives a sheer wash of color to the lips and is less glossy than the Clinique pencil.  It does, however, have shimmer in it that will give some shine to the lips.

Here are some swatches on my arms that are closer to how they appear on the lips.  This picture really shows how the Milani pencil catches the light.

Hopefully these pictures have helped you to determine the true colors of these pencils.  Both are great, but if you want to save money go with the Milani version.  I find my Milani products at Walgreen's, and I usually buy Clinique from my local Macy's.  I think Milani was between $8-9, while the Clinique is about double the price at around $15.  Both brands have great color options, so you can't go wrong with either product.  Hope this helps you!

GREAT movie!

Hey everyone! So today was my day off, and I got to sleep in, get some laundry done, clean the apartment, and go see a movie!  I haven't seen a movie in forever, but today was a dreary day and therefore the perfect time to go to the movies.  I ended up seeing "The Help" and absolutely am in love with the movie!  It's about 2 1/2 hours long, which seems excessive, but I was not bored for one moment.  It was inspiring, emotional, and completely entertaining.  I give HUGE props to the actresses because they were absolutely flawless.  It took real self-control for me not to cry.  I cannot say enough about this movie,  and recommend that everyone should see it.  It has qualities that can be appreciated by all types of people: old, young, black, white, male, female (I think you get the point).  There is some cursing involved, but I still think younger audiences could benefit from seeing this movie.  They will learn a lot about the history of Civil Rights and will get them asking important questions.  All in all, a great move that I would tell anyone to go see.

elf products

Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you guys know that after my Lip Product Extravaganza series on YouTube, I will be doing a haul/review on a bunch of  elf products.  I have never tried elf before, as the Target nearest to me doesn't carry the brand for some reason.  Whenever I saw their products in other Targets, I always thought that they must be really low quality because they are so cheap.  But YouTube opened my eyes to just how great elf products really are!  Here is a sneak peak on the products that I will be showing and reviewing:

  • Super Glossy Lip Gloss Collection in "Summer Ready" - includes a nude, 3 beautiful pink tones, and a bright coral color
  • elf studio Makeup Mist & Set spray
  • Mineral Infused Face Primer
  • Eyelid Primer in "Champagne" (sparkly nude shade)
  • elf studio single eyeshadow in "Pebble" (gray/brown/purple color)
  • Brightening Eye Color in "Day 2 Night" - includes a creamy gold shade, a sparkly plum, a grayish, almost black navy, and a coppery taupe color
  • Plumping Lip Glaze in "Oasis" (sheer sparkly pink)
  • Shimmering Facial Whip in "Toasted"
  • elf studio Cream Eyeshadow in "Dawn" (medium shimmering taupe)
  • High Definition Powder
I bought all of these products and paid less than $35, and you get free shipping with a $30 purchase!  Overall great quality and BEAUTIFUL shades to choose from!   Do not hesitate to try this brand.


Hi all! I have decided to start a blog that will accompany my YouTube videos.  Sometimes I will just blog if there is something I just want to talk about briefly instead of uploading a video. Other times I may feel like I didn't go in depth enough in my videos, and decide to post swatches or more detailed reviews on the products mentioned in videos.  Hope you enjoy!
