May Favorites!

Happy Memorial day to everyone out there, I hope that our all having a wonderful time celebrating with your friends and family!

Today I want to do a May Favorite Post! This will be my first on ever and I hope that you like it!

  • Smashbox Full Exposure Pallet: this month I have been LOVING my . I've been able to experiment and the pallet is wonderful in the area of versatility!
  • Using black shadow as a eyeliner: before I never really thought about doing this but recently while plauing aroud in make-up I have just taken an angled brush and lined my upper lash line with black shadow; to be honest I like it way more than going through the "hassle" of making sure my kohl eyeliner is perfect. With a shadow is more subtle but still gives a bold look.(:
  • Elf Angled Brush: I finally started to use a small makeup brush to clean up around my cuticle area and such, after doing my nails. It makes such a difference and i wont go back to q-tips anymore!
  • Splash Water by Nestle: There's nothing else more I can saa1y except YUM!!! This water, the Mandarin Orange flavor to be exact, is so delicious and brings that little "oomph" into plain old water. Nice to shake things up every once in a while
  • Spinach & Kale Chips with Sea Salt (made by: The Better Chip): I know what your thinking..."How gross!" But these littl guys are actually so yummy, I think I'll even give up regular potato chips for them (you have to try them!)
  • Frozen grapes: this is something that my mom and I have actually been dying to try and we finally did the other night and they are AMAZING. When the grpes are frozen they become and cool, melt-in-your-mouth treat for a hot day!
  • Zumba: summer is quickly approaching which means...beach time, shorts, tan lines, and bathing suits. If you want to shed a couple of pounds before summer officially gets here then i recommend Zumba! It's so much fun that you wont even remember your working out (:
  • Peach Mango Candle: sooooo I've come to the conclusion that I have an obsession with candles, idk I just love walking into a room and smelling yummy goodness (yes, I did just say that(; ). With that being said my mother received a candle set from Wal-mart that includes this wonderful Peach Mango scent, I never would've thought the scent throw would be as great as it is, but every time I pass it I usually get stuck because it smells so yummy!

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed hearing what my favorite things were this month, I would love to hear about yours! You can click on the links to also find/buy my favs!

Eye see you!

Hey guys! Today I wanted to talk about eye makeup. 

I'm not a big "makeup person" but from time to time I do like to wear neutral eyeshadow and some mascara...or even spic it up with winged eyeliner. Yessss wearing a cat eye is me, being dramatic; but hey at least I'll never go overboard.(;

As you all know I love pictures, which bring me to Instagram & YouTube. On my Instagram & YouTube I follow some makeup artists (idk, I consider them all artist even if they aren't professional lol) & I would like to share them with you because to me they are ah-mazing. 

•The first is Cody Wren. Let me first say that this chick is soooooo talented. I love looking at her beautiful eye makeup on Instagram! You should definitely follow her for inspiration and even to recreate !

•Next is AllisonlovesJB from YouTube. This girl knows her makeup...I would say she is best at her blending like it so beautiful she can make any colors blend together seamlessly and make them look gorgeous at the same time!

• Lastly I bring up Dani from Coffeebreakwithdani! What can I say I love Dani she is like a breath of fresh air and watching her videos are like having a convo with your BFF. From time to time she does a makeup tutorial and they are always varied. Sometimes bronze-y and sometimes it's super colorful! Even though I don't really wear color I love it nevertheless (: 

So I love these ladies and you should check them out! Who do you look to for inspiration? Tell me below I would love to check them out (: 

                  Have a great night!

Next on my list.

Okay so today I want to talk about the next thing I want to get, that's on my list. 


I just feel that a wristlets is essential for every "busy girl." I sometimes find myself going places where I don't need a purse.  But I do have a couple things that I need to bring like money, lip balm, & my phone…which brings us to the sole purpose of why wristlets were invented!

Therefore I feel that I need to invest in a couple. Usually when I go out I bring those few things mentioned above and I end up bringing a cross body that is basically empty...(not cute). So I want something that is chic & won't tie me down when I go out. 

So far I'm aiming toward these kinda of wristlets. 

I want them bright so they can still act as a assets to the outfit & still be functional.
All of these wristlets can be found on my Polyvore btw!

So what do you guys think? Do you know of a place to get reasonably priced wristlets? Let me know below !

Im Backkkk + Full Exposure Pallet Review

I can't believe its been two weeks since I've last blogged.
School has really tied me down these last two weeks....Ive had tons and tons of testing but from the most part I'm done with all of my "official testing".
Buuuuut onto the fun stuff, I bought the Full Exposure Pallet by Smashbox a couple weeks ago and its great!
I've had some time to play around with it and this pallet is so versatile and works for EVERYONE.
The pigmentation of the shadows are true to color and show up so well. With this being my first eyeshadow pallet I'm really amazed and to be honest probably won't be buying another one for a while, due to this one containing 14 shades! 7 are shimmer and 7 are matte; the color range from a light bone color to black-its the perfect pick of neutral.
So the price of the pallet is $50...yeah that's a lot! But my mom and I share it soooo that kinda makes it only $25 lol. But if you want to invest in good makeup then this is worth it (: Smashbox also gives a free sample size of their Full Exposure Mascara in the box of the pallet.
Also to make sure the shadow stays on all day we bought a primer (very important)...this primmer is the bomb by the way! Then when you buy $50 worth of Smashbox products you get some freebies and I chose the Kohl Liner and Eye Brightening Photo Op Mascara (which now is my favorite mascara it is so amazing and makes my lashes look...again AMAZING lol).
  So soon I do want to post an tutorial! Any request? I have Almond shaped eyes, so Smashbox did help me with some makeup looks!
Have a great Friday!

«Where I"ll Be»

Hey there, I hope you guys have had a delightful week so far! 

But....sadly I won't be able to post for a bit.

Let me explain. 

It's the end of the year and with that comes plenty of exam for the average human & well I have about 9 exams. They are AP/other exams and are very long and tedious. So due to this I'll be resting and doing light studying. 

If I have time I will blog but they will be sporadic! But I'll still be on twitter, Instagram, and you can shoot me an email if you have any questions(:

If you guys have any exams, I wish you the best of luck; remember you got this.(:

Healthy + Good Cookies

So I was just sitting in the car...and then I spotted these cookies on my moms purse. One of the best things I've found in a long time! lol these cookie are soooooo delicious. 

And to top it off, they are only 14 cals per cookie. Um, excuse me? YES---14. 

But onto the flavor...omg it's so yummy. On the box it says it has a hybrid taste of Mnderarin orange & lemon, smooth vanilla from Madagascar, & infused with cold pressued lemon oil & adorned with lemon zest. Sounds heavenly right? I love anything citrusy so of course I had a "oooooooo yummy" moment. 

Also these cookies are not just any ole' cookie they are Moravian Cookies. "Moravian Cookies are known for their whisper thin, hand-crafted style and long beloved for their exotic ingredients & vivid flavor." I totally agree, they are amazing and super thin, so you don't feel all heavy like you just ate a giant chocolate chip cookie with a glass of milk. But instead they are light and airy and give you the satisfaction of something worth way more than 15 calories.  (;

Have you tried these before? 
If so tell me about your experience with them or any other yummy health food you like!
