Five Weekly Faves!

Hey Curly-Fries ❤ (Can I call you guys that?)

This week I had a lot of interesting favorites that I thought I could show-and-tell. I rarely ever do favorites, but here y’all go!

Favorite #5: Natural Scents Candle in “Vanilla Latte”

Image

This candle smells reallllly great, sort of like a creamy vanilla candy, with no coffee-reminescent smell to be detected. Natural Scents has THE BEST candles, and their selection of scents is astounding. They have everything from Sugar Cookie to Eggnog to Birthday Cake to Watermelon to Bubblegum to Raspberry Truffle to Ylang Ylang and everything in between.

The best part is the glass square it comes in is made out of recycled materials! Score!

You can get them here. :}

Favorite #4: Lace Socks

Who doesn’t love some feminine lace socks? I love the little button accents and the lace on the hem! They were made by Grace and Lace Company on Etsy, who makes a lot of girly socks, leg-warmers, and the like. This particular style also came in mint..one of my fave colors!! Image

Weekly Favorite #3: Zoi Greek Yogurt in “Raspberry Cream” Flavor Image

In my opinion, Zoi makes the best greek yogurt in stores. I’ve tried all types from all brands, but this is my favorite. It’s got a solid, creamy-white upper layer, then a soft bed of fruit in the bottom. I like how it’s not gooey and chunky like other brands; it’s more like you’re eating a cheesecake than anything else. And it’s healthy!

Weekly Favorite #2: The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter

Not gonna lie..I’ve used up at least ten of these in my 13-year-old-life. But I just got a new one this week, and supposed that I’d better add it to the list!

First off, the scent is soft. It doesn’t bombard you, it BECKONS you with coconutty goodness. And it moisturizes your skin like no other, actually repairing it with each use. I love coconut scents, but if they’re not your thing, The Body Shop has many other options!

Weekly Favorite #1: MAC Lipstick in “Syrup”

I recently got this in the mail with a bunch of other MAC lipsticks, but this is one of my most favorite. It’s described as a “cloudy pink” on the MAC website, but in reality it’s more of a creamy mauve.

I love it. It’s a great everyday shade, and I’ve been wearing the heck out of it.

Anyway..that’s all for today!

I’m really tired, so I’m going to crawl in bed and take a leisurely sleep.

‘Nighty night starlets. ❤

DIY 5 Minute Chocolate Cake

Hey my adorables.

Soo…with Valentine’s Day coming up and all…I wanted to share a recipe that is quick, easy and deliciously sweet. Perfect for a cozy night in with your significant other…OR with all your girlfriends, OR by yourself, crying. Haha I’m kidding….

Anyway, here’s the recipe!

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • One favorite mug
  • 4 tablespoons of flour 
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons of whisked egg – 1 egg is too much, 1 egg white is too egg-ish (NASTYY), 1 yolk is too thick and dense, but 2 tablespoons perfecto!
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
  • 3 tablespoons of oil
  • 3 tablespoons of chocolate chips
  • A drizzle of vanilla 

(For a fudgier version, leave out the egg.) 

DIRECTIONS: 

Add all of your dry ingredients to your mug and mix. Next, add the egg, then the milk and oil, THEN the chocolate chips and vanilla!

MIX IT, and mix it well, girl.

P.S: If you don’t have any chocolate chips, mix in a broken up candy bar. (Which, by the way, is 1000000000000 times more awesome and delicious than boring old chocolate chips.)

And NOW, you microwave the yummy mix in a 1000w oven for 3 minutes, or in a 700w oven for 4 minutes. It may start to rise over the top of the mug, but DO NOT panic! It will collapse once the heat stops.

AAAAAAAAnd ta-da! A yummy cake that’s easy to make. Experiment with fun toppings, or eat it by itself. It’s still delicious ;}Image

This is a recipe I borrowed from Instructables, but I’ve done this recipe many times in the past! It’s super fun.

Enjoy!!! :}

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.
