December BIRCHBOX!!!

Ok so I know you haven't seen one of these post from me in a while, and all I can say is I"M SORRY!!!!!

I have to be honest, I haven't been all the excited about my recent boxes. I like one or two items from this box, but its not great. In fact I have to say that I don't think there has been a box yet that I've been completely excited about and I think I'm going to cancel. I just keep going back and forth about it.

ANYWAYS... Onto the box contents...

A cute little card...

 Here is the note they sent and the contents of the box...

I would have to say I'm most excited about the POREfessional Primer. I've been wanting to try this for a while, but wouldn't spend the $30. I love lipgloss and I think the pink is pretty so I can get some use out of that. Honestly thought the rest I will probably not use, but you never know.

I thought the idea of a coupon was nice but really $20 off of $75?!?!? That doesn't seem that great to me. I would of rather seen a 20% any order.

This was a nice gesture.

So, how did you like your box this month? I just think the hype of the box is over for me - I judt don't know.

Have a fabulous day!!!

FOTD: Hard Candy “Peace” Baked Eye Shadow and Review

I was shopping at our local Walmart and wanted to check out the line, since I’ve heard so much about it. I decided that I wanted to try the baked eye shadow. There were a few different choices but I chose “Peace”. It’s a light brown and brown, with shimmer, but it’s not over powering shimmer. I thought it could make for a good everyday look.

I did prime my lids, as I always do. This time I used my Two Faced Shadow Insurance. Here is the look…
I don't know wht I look so swollen...


I liked the colors. When I first opened the product the colors looked really shimmery and I’m not a huge fan of that – for daily wear. However, once applied to the lid, it was just a subtle shimmer and looked pretty. The colors have good payoff. Colors are very true to color. I can’t speak for the longevity of the product because I used a primer, however it did last until I took my makeup off that night. I do like the versatility of these types of shadows because they can be used wet or dry, I however have just used them dry.


The packaging is kinda cheap and feels like it could break easily.

I also like the affordability factor on these, they are only $6. They are totally worth the price.

Have you tried this? If so, what did you think?

p.s. Miranda I think you would love this duo!!!

Have a fabulous day!!!

September BIRCHBOX is here!!!

OK, soooo eh!

That's how I felt after opening this months box. Last few months there has been one maybe two items that I got excited about, with that being said I'm not sure if I would order a full size of anything that they have sent me. You all know that I'm cheap and I'm not paying an outrageous amount for something, when I feel I can get a better deal with a drugstore product. I'm not a label girl, yes I don't have some name brand items but I bought them because I liked them not because the brand was "cool".

Anyways with that being said here is my September Birchbox, which is their one year anniversary celebration box...

Here is the card that tells everything I got...

"Girly" by Harvey Prince:
It's just ok. I would not purchase a full bottle at $98, maybe like $9.80 a bottle LOL!!

blinc mascara:
I haven't got to try this out yet, however I'm excited to check this out. The concept seems pretty neat, basically like tubes around your lashes.

Adventurous Incoco Nail Polish Applique:
These are everywhere and I've never tried one before because I truely enjoy painting my nails. It's my relaxing time of the week. I'll try these out for sure and let you know, I do think the leopard is fun (trying to think of a fun event to wear these, maybe Halloween?)

Lash Card:
This seems like a joke. How does this help your lashes not clump?!?!

Jouer Lip Conditioner:
I think my lips were soft, but I didn't notice any plumping effect. I think I got the same result from my softlips.

Friendship Bracelet:
This was the treat you thought would make us excited, LOL!!! Nice concept, just a poor execution. It's simply a string with a metal square. I put it on to be funny and Jerry looked at it and said "You are not seriously going to wear that are you?" LOL!!!

As stated I was not overly impressed about this box. I am considering canceling my subscription, and I know $10 isn't a lot and I LOVE to get home and see that box of surprise waiting for me - but could my $10 be spent better else where?? I think I will give it until the beginning of the year and see how I feel then.

What are your thoughts on Birchbox recently? 

Have a fabulous day!!!

Update – Whats going on?!?!?

Hey everyone!

So I thought I’d just on give you a quick update on everything that is going on right now…

Wedding: I got my ring sized and now it fits – WooHoo!!! I’m so excited! I decided on a ceremony site – the church I grew up in. So now to just decide on a reception site. My mom and I are going to look, not this weekend but next weekend. I’m super excited to start planning everything!

Weight: Soooo since last Monday I’ve lost 2.2 lbs. I really haven’t been eating any better I’ve just cut out soda. I did start an exercise class but it’s only twice a week.

Beauty: Here is a look that I did and felt like I needed to share since I haven’t done a look in a while…


Hope everyone is having a fabulous day!!!

Big and Exciting News!!!!

Ok sooo I’ve been celebrating all weekend and couldn’t get on – but I FINALLY made it on here to inform you of my big news that I hinted around to a few weeks ago…


My guy isn’t the most romantic person in the world but his heart is always in the right place. The morning started off like any other day; alarm blaring, me hitting the snooze a few times, finally dragging myself out of bed and started to get ready for work. After I finished taking a shower I could here Jerry out side the bathroom, but didn't think too much about it. That was until I looked up at the mirror and it said "Will You Marry Me". I flung the door open and there he was, ring box in hand. Then he said those four words I've been waiting to hear, "Will You Marry Me". Of course I said yes!

We want to get married in September of 2012, so I have a LOT of planning to do before then.

So anyone want to come to St. Louis, MO next year to do my make up for me?!?!?! Just kiddin’.

Fitting into a wedding gown is yet another reason to slim down… I’ll be blogging later to tell you more about my weight loss plan…

Hope you are all having a FABULOUS day!!!

Get Your Freak On!

Here is a tag that I seen and decided to do as well... and a LOTD at the end...

1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you?
Ms. Piggy or Pumpkin… Growing up I was (as my mom would say) “big boned”… I’m still a little thick, but you’ll have that…

2.     What’s a weird habit of yours?
I eat my fries before everything else and I only eat 1 item at a time…

3.     Do you have any weird phobias?
I think I am afraid of a lot; spiders, snakes, falling, aliens…

4.   What’s a song you secretly love to blast and belt out when you’re alone?
Most country songs, I was just jamming to Jason Aldean’s Dirt Road song…

5.     What’s one of your biggest pet peeves? I only get to pick one?!?!? Chewing with your mouth open, talking with your mouth full, using the last of the toilet paper and not replace, etc…

6.     What’s one of your nervous habits?
I chew on my inner cheek… Ekk!

7.     What side of the bed do you sleep on?
Left side

8.     What was your first stuffed animal and its name?
A pick teddy bear Nuggles (not sure how it sounded coming out of a 2 yr old LOL) I was obsessed with the Snuggle Fabric Softener commercials when I was a kid. I hear I would be in one room playing and when I hear it come on I would run from the other room and just watch it. Nothing could pull me away from it.

9.     What’s the drink you always order at Starbucks?
Never been there, I don’t drink coffee – or the smell of it.

10. What’s a beauty rule you preach, but never actually practice?
I’m always telling people to wash their face every night and I typically just use a facial wipe

11. Which way do you face in the shower?
Away from the shower head, I don’t like the water in my face too much…

12. Do you have any weird body skills?
That’s kinda personal don’t you think?!?!? Just kidding… I don’t really have any weird skills except I’m very flexible. The first time I EVER went to a yoga class the instructor told me I was lying about never being to one. I’ve been able to do the splits since I was 3 and in the gym class test in school, I could always reach farther than anyone else.

13. What’s your favorite comfort food that’s “bad”, but you love to eat it anyway?
Cheesecake – yummy!!!

14. What’s a phrase or exclamation you always say?
D*****bag, REALLY?!?!?!?!, Dundah Dah, and many more…

15. Time to sleep – what are you actually wearing? Sometimes a big comfy t-shirt or …

Hope you all have a fabulous day!!!

My Camping Weekend...

So, as some of you may remember from my splish splash nail art post, I went on a float trip. A weekend that is spent camping, partying, floating on the river and having a blast with friends. I thought I would share some of those moments with you. Don’t pay any attention to the quality of the photos as they were taken with a water proof disposable camera, by people that had a LOT to drink.

We packed up the car and headed down to the camp ground, trying to get there before the storm so we could set our tent up. However, after having to turn around twice and stop for food once our 1 ½ hr trip turned out to be 45 minutes longer than we hoped. We arrived at the camp ground and they told us it just stopped raining, so whew dodge it! We go it and check in and just as we walk out side it starts to drizzle – no big deal but then when you looked into the sky, it was scary looking.

The sky on the way down...

We made it down to the camp site and was able to get a pop up tent up to stand under, which we jokingly used as a garage. It’s so nice to bring your beater car down so you don’t mess up your good cars. Anyways we all stood under the pop up for about 30 mins before all hell broke loose and we all sprinted for our cars. It rained sooooo hard the site started to flood. Then I noticed that the pop was collapsing due to collecting all the rain. I jumped out and was trying to dump the water out, so it didn’t break the pop up. Then my brother and boyfriend came running over to help but they were talk enough to take the top off and guess where at that water landed??? You guess it, on me. About 20 mins later the rain slowed down and I was already soaked so I just cracked open a beer and hung out in the rain LOL!

Just being silly before the downpour...

Saturday morning we woke up around 6:30 am thanks to some noisy campers next to us. Made breakfast and got ready for the float. Loaded up onto the bus (that takes you to where you start) and cracked my first beer at 9:30 am. There are only a FEW times that I will crack a beer that early; Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day and float trips. The float was only 4.5 miles long, but from stopping and partying so much we didn’t finish until 6:00 pm and then ½ of the group stayed down and partied in the water for another 2 hours.

Here are shots of what it looks like on the river...

My Hunnie and I...

Me playing in the water, being silly...

My friend Chrissy and I...

My brother and I...

We had sooo much fun; if you ever get the chance get your friends together, pack a cooler and head to the river!

I know this post had nothing to do with beauty, but I wanted to share more of who I am with you!!

Hope you all have a fabulous day!!!
