So I've had this Essie Luxeffects color in Shine Of Times for awhile now, but I've never used it, mostly because I'm constantly buying new colors and kind of forgot about the poor thang! Anyways, the weather here got kinda cold so I broke out the black nail polish, because I'm emo like that, and looked for something to pop that I could put on top. HOLY HELLO. Look at this color!! So amazing!! Even my boyfriend said it was one of the coolest colors he's ever seen, well, maybe he was just sucking up ;) but whatever, I love this color and will be wearing it a ton from now on. Also, this was just one coat of the nail polish as well, very impressed and in love.

THANK YOU UPS MAN! You made this gal verrrry happy today! ;)
I've just recently started trying Lush products, starting with their Lip Scrub in Bubblegum and their Lip Balm to go with it in Whipstick. After loving those products I went on YouTube and checked some of my favorite gurus Lush hauls and kinda came up with this random compilation of products! SOOO, I got a free sample of their Sexy Peel, Zesty Soap, it smells SO amazing. Then I got something for my wonderful bath time pictured in the bright pink called, Happy Blooming. Then I decided to try Grease Lightning to kind of help with my acne spots and maybe to prevent them in the future as well, we'll see how that goes. And to keep my cuticles healthy I got Lemony Flutter, this also smells sooo amazing. And then for hair care, for my blonde hair, I was told Daddyo would be a good route for a shampoo, we'll see how I like that as well, and Retread for a conditioner. And then last but not least, It's Raining Men, which is a nice shower gel, all of which I just got today and haven't been able to fully try yet. I am so excited though and almost kissed my UPS man.
I think this is officially one of my favorite nail polish colors. It's Essie's Fiji. It's perfect and classy for anytime of the year, I wore it over the weekend for a couple of parties I went to, and it was just perfect. It gave my pale skin a little kick to it. I think I'm going to put it on my toes in a couple of days :) A must have for every collection! Hopefully the picture does it a little bit of justice.

As if the 100 some bottles weren't enough already, I went onto amazon and purchased 3 "must have" colors that I've heard a lot of YouTube gurus talk about. The first one to the left is Butter London's "Trout Pout", then in the middle is Essie's "Fiji", and last to the far right, Essie's "Borrowed & Blue". I can't wait to try these colors out! My fingers and toesies are so ready for the spring/summer weather!
Alright, now I'll admit, I'm a total neat freak when it comes to everything in my life, especially my makeup. So one day I just got sick of the unattractive way I was storing my expensive makeup brushes, so I went to the Dollar Tree and got the vases above, super cheap and easy. I also bought some little stones for the bottom of them but I was trying to fit too many in there and this just ended up working better :) I also found that buying an envelope organizer pictured in pink, picture below (TJ Maxx, $5.00) was a great way to store my two most used eyeshadow palettes, the Naked and Naked 2 hehe, and also good for keeping out coupons and samples that I want to use without forgetting about! I just love how this all looks on my vanity!

Hello everyone, or...maybe no one since I just made this? :) The reason I have decided to make my own blog was because I am beauty obsessed and have watched many YouTube beauty videos and have also gone on a lot of beauty blogs for advice and recommendations for products. I have put a lot of money and time into finding awesome products and would LOVE to share my obsession with the world a little bit more, because frankly, I think my boyfriend is sick of hearing me talk about my beauty addictions. Not to mention, he thinks I spend too much on my makeup and nail polish, AH! Hehehe, alright, that's all I have for now, more posts soon once I get the hang of this :)
I am absolutely OBSESSED with this color but Butter London called, Jaffa.
I just picked it up from Ulta last week, just in time for spring! Not sure my awful camera does it justice but it is the prettiest orange coral color and goes on amazingly! A must have for this spring!
But then again, don't trust me..I'm a nail polish junkie ;)
