Coastal Scents

So I'm a Youtuber lover and every guru has the Coastal Scents Palettes. I've never really looked at them but tonight I was bored and decided to give a look at the site. Holy jeebus, they're cheap and seem so nice! Everyone always raves about them and I'm def thinking I need to grab some soon! Maybe for my birthday I'll ask for them!!!
All the images I have on here are from the site and you can check them AND all their other great offeres out here.

Ultra Shimmer 88 Palette

88 Metal Mania Palette

88 Warm Palette

88 Piece Makeup Palette

Do any of you use them? Please let me know!

F21 Haul

So I went shopping on Friday (October 1) and only had 45 minutes so I ran to Forever 21! I tried on a few tops that were a bit blah and ended up wandering over to the jewelery and found GREAT pieces. Let me just say, I adore F21 jewelery! It lasts quite a long time for such a cheap price.

I got two necklaces that I plan on wearing together (the individual picture of the first one shows it a bit darker than it really is, it's like a champagney pink) and a ring.

This first necklace was $5 dollars and change. I want to say $5.80

This was $7 and change. Once again, I believe it was $7.80

Me wearing them together!

This ring was $3.80 and it's AMAZING. I love chunky rings and I've been looking for one with just a black face. It's stretchy too which is SUCH a plus because then I can wear it on either my middle finger or ring finger!

Hope you enjoyed this!!!

Hey all!
So I'm not sure how many of you have heard of luuux but if you haven't, you can check it out here.
It's a blogging site where you earn points with commenting & posting and you can turn your points in for prizes once you have enough! I think it's a great idea and I hope it doesn't become old before I get my points high enough for a prize! Past the idea of prizes, it's a cool site because people are SO active on it (obviously we know why but still!)
They have categories (they call them universes) that you put your posts in by relevance. Some examples of the universes: fashion, health & beauty, design, etc.
It's cool. If you want to follow me (let me know and I'll put a link to mine up), I'll follow you too! Let me know if you have one!!!

NYX Palettes

So recently I've been on an eyeshadow buying frenzy.
Two of my recent purchases are these NYX palettes.
I was on a hunt for some of their cream blushes and thought, duh, Harmony carries their products. So instead of buying a blush (I recently got one off of I grabbed these two. They're both filled with very soft and blendable colors. I'll try to do swatches soon but for now here are the palettes and pictures of the colors.

The Smokey Eyes Palette

And this Palette is from The Runway Collection in Champagne & Caviar.
(I tried swatching them but the lighting was bad.. hence the fingerprint marks in them, haha)

Lauren's Dressing Room

Lauren's Dressing Room & her fab give-away!!!

The Musical Episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer is on!!! Awesome-ness.

So as I've said a gajillion times already (ha), I am an avid reader.
The past few weeks I've read a crazy amount of books (I need to start going to the library & save myself some money)! Anyhow, I thought I would share a few good reads with you all. I want to spread this out a bit more this way it's not crazy long.

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
This book has a sequel out right now and a third book coming out a bit later in 2011. I've read the second one as well and I thorougly enjoy this series. I tend to enjoy younger material more for whatever reason but yeah. This book is basically about friendships that begin to change and it develops into a love triangle that not everyone knows exists. Belly, the main character, every summer goes to Cousins Beach with her mother & brother and her mom's best friend who has two sons. The older one, Belly has always been in love with and the younger one who has always been her best friend. Things change this summer though because Belly has grown into herself and is gorgeous. It's definitely a great book and a lot deeper than I thought it was going to be.

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
This is the third and final book of the Hunger Games Series (Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and finally Mockingjay). This is probably in my top three favorite series. I really don't want to give a small sample of this book because you need to start with the Hunger Games but believe me you'll be glued to these books!

I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter
This is one of those books that I thought was going to be too young and kind of immature but I find the series wonderful and am so excited for the 5th book to come out in 2012 (boo). There are 4 books out right now and they're uber cheap so that's a def. perk! This book is about a girl named Cammi who goes to a school that is supposedly for rich girls but in all actuality is a school for female spies. She has two very different best friends, a mother who's an ex-spy and the headmistress, and a whole lot of drama lying ahead of her (including a crush who doesn't know she's a spy). It makes me think of Nancy Drew sort of but better. It's just so cool truthfully (I mean spy classes, hello)!

Deception: A Haunting Emma Novel
This book for me, started off a bit eh but I ended up liking it. I love mystery books and that's exactly what you get when you read this. Emma's parents tell her they have to go somewhere and they end up disappearing. Weird things begin to happen but Emma tries to put it out of her mind. She becomes one of the in-crowd, throws a party, is betrayed by one of her new friends, and find herself in the hands of her new guardian Bennett Stern (who is her brother's ex best friend and the boy she's been in love with forever). Emma starts getting major deja vu and finally gets some answers for all the weird things that have happened to her since she was young.

What's in my purse

So yeah... I'm a terrible blogger. Eek.

Here's a video to make it up to you ladies!

Current Wishlist --- oh yes

Okay, so I'm back to blogging.

My show's over and now I have plenty of time to hit this place up again!
Everytime I buy or try something I'm like I want to tell people about this! But time was not on my side the past few weeks.
Right now I'm craving a few little treats and these would be the few. I know I'm definitely getting a few of these things but not all of them!

Tiffany's small bead (mini heart) Return To Tiffanys bracelet
It's so pretty! I'm not big into wearing bracelets that I haven't made but I want a nice bracelet for when I do dress up.
A Louis Vuitton NeverFull PM bag
They're gorgeous... who can deny this!? They're also uber pricey and I feel not necessarily something I need but I want it x 10. I'm going to start saving up now. I actually have the money that I could get this but I'd feel guilty if I just bought this on a whim. Jeebus.

= love! I tried this pair on at my local mall and I'm still debating on them quite truthfully. I love them but I also find it nuts to spend crazy amounts of $$$ on sunglasses! I may have to get these though, they work for almost every face shape!

YSL Faux Cils Mascara

Everyone on Youtube raves about this product and I really want to try it but for now I'm using L'OREAL's Carbon Black Volume one. Lollipop26 did a comparison on the two and they really are quite similiar looking in that blog post so I'm all for trying the cheaper one first! I've always used L'OREAL Volume mascara but never the carbon one & I'm def liking it but it's a bitch to remove. YSL you will be mine someday.

A massage

Workin with children is so stressful and I really, really just want to go lay down for an hour and have someone work out all my knots in my back/neck. Massages are so calming but they're so expensive!

An IPod
Not necessarily an IPod touch but this is the one that's winning me over the most at the moment. I'm torn between the touch, a green nano one, or just a classic one in white.
It's a hard decision though!

Dior Amber Diamonds
I am actually getting this, this week! My boyfriend and I just celebrated our 2 1/2 year anniversary and we do small gifts for the half years and I told him this is what I wanted. I just bought MAC's By Candlelight so I'm feeling a tad bit "ah" about getting this but it'd be given to me so I don't know. Has anyone ever used this before? Let me know!

In other news, not much is going on! I've been going home after work and taking naps and hanging with my loved ones. It's so nice to have a few weeks to myself before school starts. I've been using a new moisturizer that I really like but it's just a sample size so when I buy the full product I will be doing a review on that.
I'll post a haul later today!
Oh! And my computer is still broken :o( It sucks majorly. It's going to cost anywhere from $250 - $550 possibly even more. It's terrible. I may just get a new one so we shall see.

Hiya lovies!
I'm sorry I've been M.I.A.
My show is going into tech week and the theatre classes I teach have been so big & hectic that I haven't even been online really (plus my computer is broke! I'm on my grandpa's laptop!!!). But after this upcoming week I will be back to blogging, I pinks. I have some major hauls & a review or two to post. Plus I get paid this upcoming Friday and I have tons I want to buy! After this post I'll do a wishlist post. I hope you all are well!

"I'm going to fight for you until your heart stops beating" - Jacob Black

Sometimes I get really boring and I only use one color on my eyes and that color as of late is Ulta's eyeshadow in eggplant. It's a great purple color. I'll do a swatch of it in the am.
This was my face for Eclipse!

Mac Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
Mac Pinch O' Peach blush
Ulta e/s in Eggplant
Mac Fluidline in Blacktrack (on my waterline as well)
Stila Major Lash mascara in black
Stila Peony Convertible Color
Mac Glamour For All lipgloss

Tuesday, June 29, 2010


I still don't have my cord & I won't until tomorrow but I NEEDED to update about something very, very important.
I'm going to see ECLIPSE tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am such Twi-hard and I don't care who knows it hahaha!!!
But seriously, I'm in love.
I'm excited!
I always prefer book versions of stories rather than movie versions but Eclipse just may be different.. at least that's what the trailer leaves me thinking!
I promise I won't spill any details for those of you who don't have it there yet.
I'm going to the midnight showing with my 2 good friend Amanda & Ashley and my cousin Dalila (for her 11th birthday which is tomorrow)!
I plan on going again this week & weekend, haha!
ps. i'm totally team edward but jacob is a hottie too (i like jacob a lot in the book Eclipse... I feel so bad for him!)

Monday, June 28, 2010

So I promised a jewelery post a few days ago and I left my stupid camera cord at my house! (I sleep at Zach's most of the time.. so yeah, sorry!) I'm going home today for a bit so I'll be sure to grab it. Regardless of that, I figured I should update anyway. This was a picture from last week when my production took headshots. This was what I looked like before going to rehearsal:

I love headbands as I've said before... but this one is probably my favorite it. I find it to be very Blair-esque (Gossip Girl is my baby). So yeah... this was my FOTD for photos. I can't remember what I had on my face but I liked my hair so I'm putting this up!

Wednesday, June 23, 2010


Hey all!
My apologies for going M.I.A. I've been uber busy with work and rehearsal (I'm directing a show and it's tons upon tons of work).
Anyhow, I just wanted to let you know I'm going to update either tonight or tomorrow night.. I really want to do a favorite jewelery post! I love jewelery and have SO much. I just need to like... sit down and make time, haha. But I shall so that will be within in the next two days.
Hope you're all well!

In and Out: numbaaa 3

1) The beach
I love collecting sea glass!
2) Headbands
I own WAY too many headbands but I love 'em all :o)
I think headbands can be very fun & very stylish
3) Silly Bands
Oh yes, I went there.
Seriously I'm jealous of the people who come up with the idea of rubber bands in shapes and make millions! Regardless though, I like them - no lie, haha. I'm rocking 4 of them right now
4) Freckles
I know a lot of people have a love/hate relationship with freckles but I love mine
5) ChapStick Fresh Effect (in invigorating green tea mint)
All I have to say is a-ma-zing.
6) Stila Peony Convertible Color
I had doubts about this at first but I really like this on my lips
1) Peeling
Stupid sunburn!
I especially hate when you get it on your forehead near your hairline
2) Bags under my eyes
I don't know what the deal is but I have some major bags under my eyes lately... so not attractive
3) Not being able to paint my nails without making a mess
4) Bug bites
Stupid mosquitos
5) Creasing
I haven't been using an eyeshadow primer recently and I know it's obvs my fault that my e/s is creasing then but it still bugs me

Sunsilk makes life easy

Sometimes in the summer, I get quite lazy when it comes to "getting pretty". I mean, it's hot and then you have to blowdry your hair and straighten it and by time that's over I'm a hot mess and cranky haha. So, my go to product when I don't feel like spending time on my hair is Sunsilk Hairapy Waves of Envy Sea Mist. It costs under $5 (hello major perk), and I find it performs on the same level as my Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray (which goes for about $22). You can find it at drugstores.
^image courtesy of google^

The pictures I'm posting are from a few days ago and it was like 1 am (and I think my hair still looked good!). I like loose waves and that's exactly what this spray gives me. I definitely recommend this spray! I apply when my hair is damp and then scrunch my hair, it generally is a bit more curly when it's first done but then it falls as it dries. I really have nothing to say about this spray! It also leaves my hair soft, not crunchy like other products (ie. gel, hairspray) do when I scrunch my hair.

These were taken on my phone hence the wicked flash! Eek.

Tuesday, June 1, 2010

So this was Friday's easy peasy make-up day!
I was exhausted and I just wanted to add some simple make-up to look awake.
I was also pealing like a mofo and that always bugs me when trying to do anything to my face.

Lip Smackers Chapstick in Pink Lemonade

Stila Smude Pot in Jade

Hey all!

I didn't mean to disappear for so long but my computer had a virus and it was SO frustrating that I just gave up on going online for a while... BUT it's gone now! Jeebus thank the lord!!!
Seriously, it was a pain in the ass and the worst part was that I had so many things lined up to show you all and I was in like, major blogging mode... stupid virus.
Anywho, I thought I would show you (as best as I could) my FOTN for Saturday.
The boyfriend and I went to a lovely hibachi (my fave!) dinner at a new restaurant near us and it was yumm status for sure. I don't know if you can see my eyes that well cause these are off of my phone camera but I foiled a pigment for the first time and it looked so much better and lasted SO much longer.

Onto the face:

My hair wasn't done yet, so ignore that, haha! And like I said these were taken by my phone so I'm a little washed out from the flash.


Mac Studio Fix in NC15

Mac Bronzer in Golden


YSL Rouge Volupte in #2


Barry M pigment (I don't know which one! I think Cherry)

Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Zero

Stila Major Lash Mascara in Black

That was the best close-up I could get.. and believe me I tried a ton of times haha.

I really like the foiling effect and want to try it out some more!

Hope you all have been doing well

Sorry for the lack of updates! I've been running auditions for the show I'm directing and it's been a bit hectic, but it's all cast now (THANK GOD!!!).
Anywho, just wanted to show you all an EOTD a few days ago. Ignore my eyebrows please! This was prior to me putting anything in them and prior to a little thing called waxing. I have to wait quite a bit of time between waxings because my one eyebrow grows in super slow... it's quite annoying. Anywho, here's just a simple look! Enjoy!

On my eyes:
Mac e/s in Sable
Mac e/s in Carbon
Mac Fluidline in Blacktrack
I can't remember if I used Stila's Major Lash Mascara or Rimmel's The Max Volume Flash Mascara... hmm.
Anywho, that's the simple look! I love Sable :o)

Tuesday, May 11, 2010


So Saturday my boyfriend had a gala to speak at and it was lovely! He did such a wonderful job and we had a nice evening together. I had to buy a dress and all that lovely stuff but because I got my dress for so cheap, I decided to treat myself to NARS Odine e/s. I like it but I've got to use it a bit more to say I love it. Review coming soon. Anywho here's the "FOTN".

Oil of Olay Moisturizer
Monistat Chafing Gel as a primer
Maybelline Cover Stick Corrector Concealer Green
Mac StudioFix Foundation in NC15
Mac Bronzing Powder in Golden

Too Face Shadow Insurance
Nars Odine on the lid
Nars Cordura in the outer corner
Mac Fluidline in Blacktrack
Stila Major Lash Mascara (this is love btw)

Mac Red something (I'll find the name later)

Fun in the Sun!!!

So the past few days my family and I have been going to the beach down the street a lot because it's been gorgeous! Tonight we went crabbing and I took a few pictures with my phone (which has cool panoramic and split type of picture options). The sun was setting and it was so pretty so I snapped a few shows.

That's my mom in the last picture... I think it's such a cool shot.
Tomorrow Zach and I have a gala to go to so expect pictures! I also did a bit of shopping I want to share with you all!

Got my hurr did :o)

Hello lovies!

So today I got my hair highlighted & lowlighted! I haven't had my hair done since November... gasp. I know, I know, I'm terrible with maintance but I'm a natural blonde so I can get away with it for awhile. I usually wait a really long time which is so bad, haha. My re-growth bugged me so I went and had my hair done. I adore my hairdresser, she does really great work and she always understands what I'm trying to say even when I don't. Anywho, this is a bit darker for me.. I'm usually a very light blonde and lately I've been craving a medium toned blonde instead so that's what I went with today. I'll probably add a bit of thinner highlights once the summer comes and then leave my hair alone for a while. I included pics at the very bottom of me being an uber blonde. I want to be that weight again, aurgh.

So yeah, new hurrr pics!

This is a lot darker for me. My ends used to be so blonde and she pulled a darker lowlight through. I like it though.

And for good measure, here's a picture of my "bombshell blonde" as so many people called it.

I don't know if any of you read The House of Night Series... but if not... YOU NEED TO!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today Burned came out!
It's the 7th book in the series and I'm about to go out and grab mine now :o)
(I called a few days ago and had it put aside.. such a dork)
I also had the 7th (or 8th.. I think the 7th though) book of The Vampire Diaries put aside. It's the 2nd of The Returned grouping. If you've seen the show and hated it, just take my word and read the books because they are WAY better. I can't even tell you how much better they are.. just take my word.
So yes, today is going to be a great day of reading for me!
I also have a haul I have to update.
Have a great day all!

YSL Sensual Silk

I just wanted to show you all some swatches of the YSL Rouge Volupte L/S in #2. I haven't properly worn this yet so I can't necessarily do a review but I figured I'd show you some swatches.

This was in our bedroom with lowlighting

This is in the bathroom with the lights on and right above my hand.
A bit blurry but you get the idea I think.

Kinda dark, in the room without a flash.

In the bathroom with a flash.

And then just pictures of us after a longggg day. The lipstick is a really pretty shade and lookie lookie, my Zachie baby!

I'll try to put up better hand swatches when I get a chance!
