NOTD | 11.26.12

Hey ladies, just wanted to stop by and share with you what I recently painted my nails. On Monday at work I broke/cracked a nail so I had to repair and repaint my nails and I decided to go with more of a Spring/Summer type of color. I used China Glaze Wild Mink which is a beautiful pinky coral color. It’s a stunning color and I can’t wait to wear it again. I will be doing a review on this polish in the near future so keep an eye out for that. What are you currently wearing on your nails?

Swag Shoppin | Charmed I’m Sure

Hey ladies, I’m beyond excited right now to share with you this tiny haul with you from MAC. In my previous MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection posted I stated I was on the waiting list for the last lipstick I wanted for the collection. And luckily, my local MAC store got another shipment of goodies from this collection. I’m so happy that I put my name on the waiting list for this lipstick and I can’t wait to wear it in the upcoming weeks. I’m super happy that I’m able to add Charmed I’m Sure to my collection.
Where you able to get a hold of any of the lipsticks from this collection?

Review Thursday | OPI Heart Throb

Hey ladies, just wanted to stop by and share with you my thoughts on another OPI polish. This is the color Heart Throb and it is from the Soft Shades by OPI collection. I was able to pick this polish up at my local Winners location for around $8. You could probably find this color at any of your local nail/hair salons; as well as online. This polish applies very sheer but with 3 coats it becomes opaque. Well you get an opaque look with just 2 but I prefer 3 coats. I find that with the first coat it applies slightly streaky but once you hit the second and third it applies just fine. This is like the perfect Barbie pink polish and it can be worn all year long. I definitely recommend this polish if you are looking for that perfect pink color that isn’t to over powering.
Do you have Heart Throb in your nail polish collection?

Swag Shoppin | First Cream Blushes

Hey ladies, just wanted to share with you my new cream blushes I picked up. Recently, I was in Winners looking for a new wallet, which I didn’t find. But luckily, I spotted the Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blushes. I’ve been wanting to try these for awhile now but I haven’t had a chance cause I haven’t really been able to find them in my area; and when I do, they are sold out. I picked up the 3 colors that they had there and they were $7 each. These are my first cream blushes ever and I can’t wait to give them a try and use them when I want to layer different blushes for different looks.
The ones I picked up were:
- 100 Pinched
- 200 Flushed
- 300 Coral Reef
I honestly, can’t wait to give these a try. Have you tried these blushes before; what are your thoughts on them?

NOTD | 11.25.12

Hey ladies, just stopping by real quick to share with you what I’m currently wearing on my nails. Yesterday, my brother’s friend came over and we got into this big talk about makeup and nail polish and I decided to search for some polishes I haven’t used in awhile and pulled them out so I could wear them over the next month or so. Super happy I did that, I found some makeup I was looking for and couldn’t figure out which box they were in. But anyways, I decided to paint my nails with Essie Very Structured polish, which was realized in their 2011 Fall Collection I believe. I think this polish is such a beautiful shade of brown and I will be reviewing it very soon.
What are you currently wearing on your nails?

Swag Shoppin | Limited Edition Maybelline

Hey ladies, just wanted to stop by and share with you the new Maybelline goodies I recently picked up from Shoppers. I was finally able to find the Maybelline Fall Collection at my Shoppers in the mall I work at. I saw them at another mall but I was in a rush, I should of gotten everything then but hopefully I will find the items I’m missing at a location closer to me. Anyways, I was able to pick up 3 of the limited edition eye shadow quads.
The ones I got were:
- 100 Cozy Cashmere
- 200 Smokey Cinnamon
- 300 Sea Sprite
Honestly, there is one more I want to get but I honestly, can’t think of the name right now. As well I really wanted to get my hands on the Color Tattoos but hopefully when I go to the first mall I saw them at I will be able to get a hold of them. Have you picked up anything from this collection?

Swag Shoppin | More Piggy Wiggy

Hey ladies, just wanted to share with you another Piggy Wiggy haul. I recently was able to find more items for the princess. While picking up my Marilyn Monroe goodies I stopped into Stokes and found the whisk. I was super surprised to see them in this store at the same price as Winners. So I will probably be checking there more often than going to my local Winners. The other items I was able to find them at Winners. I picked up 2 of the mixing spoons and 2 of the silicone grips. Princess was so stoked when she saw these that she showed everyone at my mom’s house the new goodies I got her.

Swag Shoppin | Marilyn Monroe Collection

Hey ladies, just wanted to stop by and share with you the items I picked up from the Marilyn Monroe collection so far. I already posted a video on my channel but I wanted to share with you the pictures. I was so serious about this collection that I went to 3 different malls to get the items that I wanted but I am still missing one lipstick, but I’m currently on the waiting list so hopefully it comes in soon. This collection was to die for, simple because of the lipsticks in this collection. They released 5 lipsticks and I wanted 4 but I only have 3 so far.
The lipsticks I wear able to get were:
- Deeply Adored
- Love Goddess
- Scarlet Ibis
Next I picked up both blushes:
- Legendary
- The Perfect Cheek
Lastly, I picked up the Forever Marilyn beauty powder.
Honestly, super excited for all the items I was able to get my hands on. I don’t think I will end up getting any of the shadows seeing I have way too many in my collection currently and the lipglasses didn’t really appeal to me. Fingers crossed I will get the one lipstick I’m missing so I can come back and share with you. Did you pick up anything from this collection?

NOTD | 11.18.12

Hey ladies, just wanted to stop by real quick and share with you what I recently painted my nails. Lately, I’ve been switching from Fall to Summer colors. I decided to go with another Fall/Winter appropriate color and I’m loving this shade and I’m so happy I decided to get it. I fully forgot to use a top coat because I was super tried. But it’s hasn’t started to chip at all and my current job is pretty rough on my nails.
This manicure consisted of:
Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat
OPI Yucatan If U Want
Essie A Cut Above – accent nails
I’m loving how A Cut Above compliments Yucatan If U Want. It’s honestly, the perfect nail polish combination currently. What are you currently wearing on your nails?

Swag Shoppin | Devil

Hey ladies, if you remember about a month ago I posted some cute little kitchen accessories and I wanted to share with you the new ones I picked up. I was able to find all these ones at Winners but I have also seen them at Stokes and Bed Bath and Beyond. This time around I picked up the little devils. I picked up two of the spatulas and two of the oven grips. When I brought these home to show my princess she screamed for joy, she was like are these for me and got super excited. She loves cooking already and we don’t do much of it yet. But this is a great way for her to be able to help me out when we start in a few weeks. I also picked up the flexi chopping board that features a egg and another potatoe peeler that has a cute little spud handle.

Swag Shoppin | Mini Candles

Hey ladies, while I was out on my mission getting all the items from the MAC Marilyn Monroe collection I stopped by Bath and Body Works. I was at a mall that I never go to and I didn’t even know they had one and when I walked in they had all these great promos on the summer stuff. I was honestly, trying to stay away from buying anything but then I saw that they had the mini candles on for 5 for $5 and I decided I would get some. I limited myself to only getting 5 because I have a ridiculous amount of candles already and I really don’t need any more.
The ones I picked up were:
- Black Berry Grapefruit
- White Palm
- Pineapple Mango
- Malibu Smash
- Peach Bellini
I already have a bunch of these but honestly, I love these scents and I can’t wait to get around to burning them. Have you recently picked up anything from Bath & Body Works?

NOTD | 11.11.12

Hey ladies, just wanted to share with you my current nails. Recently, I’ve been in the holiday spirit and I can’t wait to get my Christmas decorations up and everything. But seeing that won’t be happening till the first week of December, I thought I would do another festive color. I repeated the polish but I did add some accent nails to change it up a bit. But I love how it turned out. I’ve gotten alot of compliments on this manicure this past week from customers and co-workers. I can’t wait to do a review on both these polishes in the new few weeks or so. So keep an eye out for those.
This manicure consisted of:
Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat
China Glaze Poinsettia
Essie Leading Lady – accent nails
CND Super Shiney Top Coat
What are you currently wearing on your nails?

Review Thursday | OPI My First Knockwurst

Hey ladies, I’m just stopping by to share with you another quick review on My First Knockwurst from OPI. This shade was released in the Germany Collection. I picked this up from my local salon for around $9. It’s a very beautiful blush color for the Fall/Winter season but I personally think you could wear it all year around. This polish applies very sheer and to get an opaque finish, you need atleast two coats. I used two and I was happy with how it turned out; I think if you did three it might appear to thick on the nails. Even though it applies sheer I don’t find it streaky at all. I can see this polish as being a staple color for me all year around and if you are looking for a perfect blush color, I would definitely recommend My First Knockwurst.
Have you tried this polish out; what are your thoughts on it?

This one is the Colossal Cat Eye Mascara; I got mine in Glam Black. Maybelline makes honestly my favourite mascaras of all time and they never disappointment me. I can’t wait to give this a try and see how well it works with my lashes.

Swag Shoppin | Drug Store Goodies

Hey ladies, a couple of weeks ago I stopped into Shoppers Drug Mart because I had a $10 off a $50 purchase coupon. I grabbed a bunch of items and I only ended up keep these 3 because when I got home I realized I already had them in my collection. But the items I ended up keeping were:
- L’Oreal Total Repair Hair Mask
- L’Oreal Color Radiance Protecting Hair Mask
- Crest 3D White Advanced Vivid Stain Protection
I’m always on the hunt for new hair care stuff and I can’t wait to give them a try.

Swag Shoppin | MAC

Hey ladies, just wanted to share with you the goodies, I picked up from the MAC Face & Body collection that released in September I think. It was awhile ago but I’m just getting around to post about it. I wasn’t really planning on picking up anything from this collection but I go a coupon in the mail from The Bay and it was $20 off a $100 purchase at any of the cosmetics counters and I just had to get some new items. I picked up the two limited edition brushes that were released with this collection. The first one is the 163 Flat Contour Brush; I’m super excited to give this a try in the near future. The other brush is the 215 Medium Shade Brush; I think I would use this to contour my nose possible, but I’m not even sure what I’m going to use it for yet, but I had to have it. I also picked up the Pro Sculpting Cream in Copper Beech. I got this to use for contouring and to use along with my new brush. Can’t wait to see how well this works out for my skin tone, I went with this color for a more natural contour. Lastly, because I was short $6 from my $100 goal, I picked the Viva Glam Nicki lipglass. I already have the lipstick and I really like it so I thought I would get the lipglass because it was on my list of items to get.
Did you pick up anything from the Face & Body collection?

Swag Shoppin | OPI

Hey ladies, just wanted to stop by and share with you my new finds from Winners. I recently was there and they had gotten in a bunch of new polishes and I decided I would only treat myself to 2 new ones. It was so hard to choose which ones I wanted. But I went with Heart Throb which is the perfect Barbie pink and I’ve already worn it and posted about it. The other one is Yucanta If You Want; it’s another pretty shade and I think it would be really nice for Fall/Winter. I can’t wait to wear it and see how it looks against my skin tone.
Have you picked up any new OPI polishes?

Swag Shoppin | Spatulas

Hey ladies, just wanted to share with you these cute cupcake spatulas I picked up from Winners recently. Honestly, I know you’re probably thinking I have way more than enough things for baking but I couldn’t say no. Well I had no choice actually, one day my princess and I were shopping and she saw these and said these would be perfecting for making cupcakes and picked out pink one for herself and said I needed the blue one. I think she’s way more into the baking then I am now and she just wants anything and everything that has to do with baking!

Swag Shoppin | Bath & Body Works

Hey ladies, I’m back with another Bath and Body Works haul. About a month ago I walked in to see if they had anything new, I wasn’t looking to buy anything but I saw that they had the Sleep Sommeil Night Time Tea Luxury Bath and I had to have it. It had come out during the holiday season last year and I was super sad I wasn’t able to get more. So when I saw this I needed to have it in my life. At the time the promotion going on for the Aromatherapy items were buy 2 get 1 free. So I picked up 2 of the Night Time Tea Luxury Baths and 1 of the Lavender Vanilla Luxury Baths. As well, while there I saw that they had some of the summer candles on sale for 50% off and I picked up a 4oz one in Island Margarita.

Swag Shoppin | Lorac

Hey ladies, just wanted to share with you the new palette I picked up from Hautelook. Recently, maybe a month or so ago, they featured Lorac on the site again and I picked up a new palette. Honestly, I love getting higher end makeup off this site you can always get great items for great prices. The palette I picked up was the Femme Fatal. I got this one because it has a great range of colors and it would work great for both neutral and smokey makeup looks. Also it has a bunch of great colors for Fall/Winter. I can’t wait to give it a try and see how well it works.
What is your favourite product from Lorac?

Review Thursday | Zoya Lara

Hey ladies, I’m back again with another review. This time it’s for the Zoya Lara polish. I picked it up from my local Chatters but it can be found anywhere you can purchase Zoya. I got mine for around $9 which isn’t that bad at all, it’s in the same price range as OPI. It’s an amazing Barbie pink polish; great for the Summer months. It’s opaque after one coat but I always do two coats. It applies very smooth without any streaking. I find that it’s a little thick but that doesn’t affect how nicely it applies. I think this is a great color to add to your collection, if you don’t already have it.
What’s your favorite Zoya polish?
