Whole Lotta Candy

December 1st. LET THE HOLIDAYS BEGIN!!

I hope you all haven’t forgotten me…I know I took a lengthly break. But hey. At least I’m one trimester done with being a freshman! ;D 

You guys know how this goes: as soon as Christmas starts rolling around, brands come out with lots of value sets or little stocking-stuffer type products. I was at the Clinique counter the other day, and this cute threesome caught my eye. It was SO adorable!

If you guys have stuck around on my  blog for even a little bit, you’ll know I’m a girl who is totally lip product obsessed! A set with three mini chubby sticks (usually 17 bucks each), all for $25? I am sold.

This set comes with “Pudgy Peony”, “Voluptuous Violet”, and “Two Ton Tomato”.

Or, the fuchsia one, the purple one, and the red one.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I hate the name “Two Ton Tomato.”

 “What are you wearing on your lips?” “Oh, it’s ‘Two Ton Tomato’.”

Blechhh.

Anywayyyys. The colors have different payoffs, so here’s the jist of it:

Pudgy Peony: A great fuchsia/berry shade. Most pigmented of the three.

Voluptuous Violet: Sheer purple gloss.

Two Ton Tomato: Pretty red tint that you can build up to higher intensity.

The colors don’t last particularly long, either, so I find you have to reapply them. I don’t really mind. The formula is extremely moisturizing, perfect for the cold winter air.

I hope you guys had a lovely  Thanksgiving holiday. Love you guys!

Valentine’s Day

Hi my sweethearts!

So.

Valentine’s Day.

A holiday full of mushy couples, chocolate hearts, icky chick-flicks, and romantic dates. A really stupid, pointless, adorable holiday.

I am personally single. So, on this holiday, in the place of romantic dates, I just sit home and eat food. Forever alone. *sniffle sniffle* 

Haaaah totally kidding. I’m not one for mushiness and gushiness, candlelit dinners and whatever ickiness couples do on Valentine’s Day. But, even with all the cheesy chocolate boxes and corny paper hearts floating all over the place, Valentine’s Day is a nice inspiration for clothing!

NO, I don’t mean that you should dress up like a giant chocolate box, or get decked out in lace and ribbons. I always thought of Valentine’s Day as a feminine, sweet, holiday, where you can dress more romantically than usual. Flowing dresses, light lace and tulle, loose curls over bare shoulders, delicate jewelry and a blushing complexion, with sweet, pink, kissable lips. ROMANTIC and ELEGANT!6a00d8341c683453ef00e5505095de8833-800wi

None of the whole “sweater embroidered with hearts, red shoes with white socks, pink skirt, everything matching and coordinating to Valentine’s Day colors” thing. That’s tacky and…weird. Not cute at all.

Not saying you have to look like a Vogue model or anything, but play around! Fun hair pieces, long skirts, and light fabrics scream effortlessly beautiful.

TIP: If you’re going to be doing a little kissing (or a lot), stay away from the super-sticky lipgloss!

ANOTHER TIP: Breath-mints are your BFFL! And so is lipbalm, hun! ;}

ONE MORE: If you’re not going out anywhere, invite all yo single ladies over!
