Cupcake It Out!!

Cupcake It Out!!

Hai guys. Guess who’s got an entire afternoon for herself FOR ONCE?? This girl! I hope you guys are having a wonderful day. If you’re stressed, always remember there’s a solution to the problem. ILY<3 Advertisements

Heads Up!

Aw, poo. :/

Just as I’m getting back into my blogging ZONE, I’m going to be racing off to dance camp for four days, TOMORROW morning!!

I’m just posting this short, sweet lil update to let all my followers know that I will be back. When I’m dancing from 6AM to 10PM, that leaves no room for me to post. Plus, I’ll be bonding with my team!

I leave you with a sleepy kitten waving goodbye..but don’t worry, I won’t be gone forever. Image

If you want to contact me and say hi, you can find all of my contact info in the “About Me” tab on my blog.

I’m sure I’ll have time to have a quick chat over the weekend. ;}

Mwah!

Image

The rules of this award are:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Add the “One Lovely Blog Award” image to your post.
  3. Share 7 things about you.
  4. Pass the award on to seven nominees
  5. Include this set of rules
  6. Inform your nominees by posting a comment on their blogs. 

The person that nominated me, the lovely and super-sweet Divine Rush (I thank you SO, SOOO much, girly!), chose to explain why she chose those certain bloggers. And I though ‘Hey, that sounds like a perfectly delightful idea to me.’ So I’m going to do it too!

BUT BEFORE WE BEGIN, here are seven things about me:

1. I looooove any lip product that smells and tastes nice.

2. I can’t stand people that smack their food when they chew…blegghhh.

3. My first high-end eyeshadow was “Sunkissed” by the Sephora Collection, which is sadly discontinued now. But I loved it back then!

4. Blue, purple and pink are my favorite colors. But I also really like green! I just like colors. :}

5. If I had to choose one food to live off of, it would be soup. Or pasta. Or bread. MMmm carbs.

6. I love writing dorky poems and making up fun words, or pulling weird faces!

7. Blogging is one of my favorite pastimes.

BAM. Now onto the nominees! 

Painted Lady. She is such an elegant blog, that I loooove to read. If you want info on all things beauty, check her out pronto! She’s such a sweet, gracious beauty, with great insights!

Pearls and Paris. God, I love her blog! She’s so trendy and “with-it”, and she has the cutest daily inspirations! Her voice totally engages her readers, and she has a lot of great stuff on…well…everything! Beauty, music, news, shopping, travel, humor, ect.

Aavicenna. She is the QUEEN, you guys. The queen of scents! The connoisseur! Her blogs are mostly scent reviews: thorough, honest-to-god, SUPER-descriptive scent reviews. Thinking about buying a scent but you aren’t sure? Stop by and check her out!

Beauty Nerd Marisha. I think I first started following Marisha when we had just entered the whole blogging world. When we first started. When we were little blossoms! AND NOW, she’s grown so much! She’s witty, engaging, hilariously helpful, and just a joy to read! When you read her posts, it’s like you’re chatting with a best friend, gossiping and quipping about girls and their “foundation masks” or brown lipstick and why you think it’s amazing. Just..love ya, Marisha! I hope I get your autograph before you’re famous and all ;}

The Beauty Cloud. This girl makes amazing reviews on makeup!!! I also love how she shares new trends or fashion pieces; it’s like having a narrator inside a fashion mag!

Janine Russell. She is just a phenomenal writer. She is wise, and ambitious, and smart, and funny, and really pretty on top of that. She stands up for what’s right, and I totally respect her. You go, girl!

Rockin’ Around The Frock. Even though I am a bit new to her blog, I am totally a fan. She’s like the glam, chic, sophisticated older sister I always wanted. She has this sort of style that I adore, and posts the best things on fashion and beauty. I’d say she posts a healthy mix of both. And she’s funny too. Really funny. Like “fall-out-of-my-chair-laughing-about-Brittany-Spear’s-denim-dress-and-choking-on-my-soda” funny. I love her quips.

And that’s it guys! Thanks so much. ❤ Peace out!

Drugstore Haul

Hey everybody!

I recently went to my local drugstore to do a bit of shopping. Hehe. For cosmetics, yo.

And so here is what I bought! If you want a full review of a certain product, you can put that down in the comments and I’ll definitely get back to you.

So let’s gooooo!

1. Milani Baked Blush in “Dolce Pink”

Image

Oh my god. This totally screams Valentine’s Day, doesn’t it?

It’s the most beautiful light, rosy flush you could ask for. It’s a beautiful shade, that makes you look bashful and TOTALLY, ADORABLY IRRESISTIBLE. I put it on this morning at 4 AM before dance practice, and even after the Valentine’s Day Formal at school, it stayed put. It’s has a slight shimmer, no glitter, and makes you look like a total cutie-pie.

2. L’Oreal Infallible Gel Laquer Liner in “Blackest Black”

Image

Guys, I have super bad luck with liners. All of the ones I’ve bought in my life weren’t that black, and smeared, smudged, and dripped. Terrible. Icky.

THIS ONE is creamy, pigmented, and comes with a pretty nice brush. The bristles are small and precise, and get a good amount of product on them to make straight, even lines.

3. Wet ‘N’ Wild Bronzer in “Reserve Your Cabana” Image

ONE THING: This does not, any under circumstances, is considered a “bronzer”. It’s a light, shimmery, luminous cream-colored powder in a large disc compact, that will not make the palest complexion bronze.

But  DAAAMN it does make a good highlight and brightener. I put it on my collarbone, my brow bone, my shoulders, my cheekbones, and anywhere else I need a subtle glow. You get a ton of product for the money!

4. Ecotools 5-Piece Brush SetImage

These brushes are amazing. Period. They’re soft, eco-friendly, travel-friendly, and really great for applying makeup. Plus, their pretty cheap considering the quality.

I ESPECIALLY love the mineral powder brush and the kabuki. They give such a natural finish.

5. Bonne Bell (Lip Smackers) Sponge-On Sparkler in “Vanilla Frosting” Image

I wonder if you’re thinking “LOL Gurrrrrl you still in kindergarden? We don’t use dat no mo’ cuz we gotz Dior and Bobbi Brown an’ shit.”

I knoooow but it’s almost Valentine’s day! And everyone loves a yummy clear lip gloss that tastes like it smells. It makes my pout taste like a cupcake! ;}

6. Wet ‘N’ Wild Color Icon Blusher in “Mellow Wine” Image

This feels like silk, blends like butter, and applies like a dream. The color is perfect, but hun, use a light hand, mmkay?

This is like..um, syrup and pancakes. If you use too much SYRUP, your pancake is overloaded and ruined. Unless you like your flappity-jackies saturated. Then just ignore all of what I just said.

PLUS, it’s cheap. And better than some high-end blushes! Pick up a color, I dare ya.

7. Femme Couture Lip Luster in “Smooth Coral”

Image

This is my dupe for the MAC Lipglasses. It smells like vanilla cookies, stays on forever, and has phenomenal color and shine! I’ve NEVER heard ANYONE talk about these before, guys.

I bought this one at Sally Beauty Supply, and I love it. A looooot.

Anyway…this was a pretty short haul but whatevs. I missed you guys.
