Mini Forever 21 Haul

So I did I bit of quick shopping in forever 21. I spent around 40 dollars and got 6 items which I thought was a really good deal!

I got 3 bracelets with the same design. It's hard for me to find bracelets I really like in forever 21 but these I LOVED, I just had to get them all. They retail for $2.80 and they're basically just double banded pearls with a gold letters saying love, dream, and hope. LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM

I got this pencil skirt with white cross detailing for $13.80 which is a really good price. It's good for a casual look and also a nice formal look for a night out. 

This cardigan was only $8.80 which got me really excited! It's in a nice deep maroon/purple color and I got it in size medium (I like to wear them loose fitted)

This is the same type of cardigan but in a nice cream/off-white color, this is in size large.

My Current Beauty Must Haves

I apply this under my eyes and on my lips every night and it makes my lips feel so good the next morning and my under eyes look much more healthy and plump.

I am honestly addicted to this scent. It has a light mixture of a floral, fruity scent. It is very very light, much like a body mist but much more long lasting. Plus, it was only 6 bucks at Ross!

Now I don't have a favorite brand, but I am IN LOVE with lip stains now. I can't leave the house without them this fall. It's just love love love. I don't have any eye makeup but some liner, and this dramatic pop of color gives a ice fall, edgy, modern pin up look.

Cutest Perfume Gift Ever!

I went to sephora today and saw this 4 piece DKNY Be Delicious set, and I fell in love with it! It comes with 2 original Be Delicious scents and 2 of the Fresh Blossom scent. Now the picture may be deceiving because it looks quite big in the picture, BUT they're are actually pretty small which is good to me! I'm a sucker for small cute, easy to carry packaging. On top of that, I'm going to put them in Christmas baskets for my friends, so it's a good idea for a christmas gift. It retails for $38.00 so check it out!

Benefit Cravings


So I recently purchased a set from Benefit called "Her name was Gloria" & it included a mini sized lip gloss, & I FELL IN LOVE with it. Luckily, Benefit just came out with this set of 6 different shades of their lipgloss for $26. I really really want to get it, but I was planning on doing a project 10 pan soon. What to do, what to do. Sometimes, I dislike my makeup obsession. 

Sad, Sad Day


Today, I realized that I've lost my Rosebud Salve. & I realized how much I love that product because I don't remember being so sad about losing something until today haha. :[ If you've never tried this product, go out and get one! It's 6 bucks and you can get them at Sephora. Just don't be a donkey and loose yours like how I did... :[

Reunited with my Matte Powder

I've decided to put my MAC msf aside and use some drugstore products that I haven't been giving much attention to in my makeup collection. I've been using my Maybelline Dream Matte Powder again, and I admit...with this ridiculous hot weather, this is keeping my face matte much MUCH longer than my msf & on top of that, it gives a really nice finish on my face. Maybelline Dream Matte Powder...I am sorry for forgetting about you, you're truly amazing!

Favorite Shampoo

Dear Lush,
Thank you for having such AMAZING solid shampoos.
It could be a bit pricey for some of us, but I have the sample size of the solid shampoo and it is lasting for a very very long time! They retail for 9.95 I believe, but it's well worth it.

Strivectin, I love you!

Yes, I've decided to splurge on a product that I definitely wouldn't go looking for at the mall. I went to Sephora and tried this product on my hands and neck to see if it would give me an allergic reaction & oh my goodness! It gave such a silky smooth finish to my skin I fell in love and bought it. Now the only bad news for me on this product is that it was around $60, which is very pricey, even for me. I do admit, that my money was put to great use. It sinks into your skin quickly without leaving that oily feel to your skin as other products do, but it does give intense moisture. I have oily skin, EXTREMELY oily skin and it works great on me.
Strivectin, I love you!

Anyways, I've only tried one of the flavors and it's the Blueberry Flax Antioxidant Bar. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
I will try to post more random blogs soon! Love you all and see you all again soon!

That's about it! I hope you all are having a great summer :]

got2b must have :]

I've found my new true love for my hair :]
The got2b smoothing lustre lotion is a good drugstore dupe for the Chi silk infusion and the Biosilk silk therapy lotion.
It's also much more cheaper that the two.
I believe it retails for around 5-6 dollars at CVS, but got2b products do go on sale often at CVS so just be patient :].

How to Use:
With damp hair or dry hair, use 1-2 pumps and apply to your hair.
Try to avoid applying it towards your roots since it might make your hair look oily. I realized that applying it to DRY hair works BETTER than applying it to damp hair.

What it Does:
This smooth operator helps to get rid of all your frizzys (it really does!). It also helps to give your hair a nice healthy shine and really makes your hair feel extremely silky and nice.
It also has UV protection which is a plus during the summer time :]
I believe it also works as a heat protectant also.

This product is a must have!!!!! :]]]]

Smokey Eye Tutorial

So I just posted a video on YouTube on how to do a
really simple & subtle smokey eye. Only one eyeshadow was used to create the smokey eye and of course another shadow for the highlight and lower lash line.
It's really really easy, & is completely fail proof.
This is a really good look for beginners who really want to try doing a smokey eye.
Don't limit yourself to just a black shadow also, you can have a more everyday smokey eye by just using a brown instead of a black, or you could even try using two shadows instead of one (using black on lid and using a light brown in crease to smoke it out).
I hope you guys try this look out, and have fun with it :]

Products Used:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Elf Shadow Brush
Elf Blending Brush
Coastal Scents Blending Brush
Coastal Scents Pencil Brush
Urban Decay Shadow in Perversion
Stila Trio in Bronze Glow

So this is what the finished look is going to look like

1. Prime lid
2. Apply black shadow on lid (how high up you want to go depends on how dramatic you want your look to be)
3. Get your blending brush and just blend the oute
r edge up (this is going to create the smokey look)
4. Get a light shadow and highlight under your brow
5. Get a soft brown shadow and apply it on your lower lid
6. Apply mascara!

New GeoLens!!

I've recently received my GeoLens contacts in the mail from They have an amazing shipping process (from their company to hawaii was really just about 3 days). The pair that I brought is called the Angel 2 Tone color in Violet (CM-831). THEY ARE SO CUTE! They have a thick black ring along the outer edge of the contact which helps to give the appearance of having bigger looking eyes. The pair was $24.95 on the site plus shipping ($6.95), so in total my payment was $31.98. Their website has a huge variety to choose from which was really impressive. There were a lot of site that I went through that were sold out on a lot of the Geo Lenses. Prices for each type of GeoLens vary which is good, so a pair that you might be interested in may be quite affordable :]. How to open them in their jars and more information on the site is in my video.

Here are some pictures of what they look like:

This is the box that it came in :]

The packaging that the contacts come in are little jars (one contact in each jar).

This pair is called: CM-831 or, Angel 2 tone in Violet

This is basically what they look like on :]
