Essie Me!

I saw this color on a website and have been on a mission to find the. I actually got "To Buy or Not To Buy" and I love it. It is such a soft purple, its gorgeous! I love OPI, I have always loved them but now I'm starting to think Essie is taking over! One thing I dont like about OPI is that they make a color that becomes popular and then discontinues it or better yet they just change the name and make it either a shade lighter or darker. Do you prefer OPI or Essie more?! What colors do you like that are Essie?!

February Favorites!

 Yes to Cucumbers  – I love these things. I keep them on back up now literally one is open and another is in the cabinet waiting lol! I love the way these feel on my skin, they are very cooling and refreshing. I also love the fact that they are for sensitive skin and that’s always a plus!

Sonia Kashuk RemoveThis is probably one of my favorite make up removers of all time. I can have super dark make up on and use this with a cotton ball and you can’t see anything left on my eyes. Nothings I have ever bought compares to this. I think everyone needs to try it at least once!

Pantene Fine Anti Breakage Detangler – I really like this as a detangler. I let it sit in my hair before a brush it out and I really do see a difference in how easy it is to brush my hair. For the price I think it’s a great buy. Also I just want to clear it up that this doesn’t fix existing breakage, this product only minimizes getting more of it.

Kenra Platinum Silking Gloss – If you guys can get your hands on this, then you need too. This gives amazing SHINE and gets rid of those awful fly aways! This product can get pretty pricey but one pump is all you need and you’re good. This bottle can last you awhile.

Fancy by Jessica Simpson – Other than the fact I’m in LOVE with these smell. I wear it every day and even have the roller ball kind in my purse for a quick touch up. I get compliments on these all the day. If you get the chance to smell it or even purchase it I don’t think you would be disappointed I have already bought it 3 times and I finally just ordered the 3 oz from Amazon.

Shaun White Gum –  I’m sure it’s not normal to have gum in a favorites post but I want it to be everything I am favoriting this month and this happens to be a go to for me in my purse at all times. This has just the right amount of mint in it and it last a long time haha!

Body Butter Scrub Coconut – I got this in the begin of the month (February) in a two pack for like 5 bucks at Target. I was so excited to take a shower that night and try it and I have to say it’s amazing. I actually feel like my body is getting clean because I can feel the grains in it and I think for me in my head it makes me think the dirt is getting scrubbed away. After I’m done in the shower my skin feels really clean and soft. This is definitely something I will keep buy maybe just switch up the scents.

Glam Eye’s Mascara Rimmel London – If you want a “clump” free mascara this is definitely one to try. You get perfect lashes with it, literally! I have had people ask me if I’m wearing fake lashes and I never wear them. This is a MUST try.

My Favorite Lip Balm –  When I see anything that says “ My Favorite . . .” I usually end up trying it to see if its really even a good product. I have got to say this one didn’t disappoint! I found it to be a lip balm but also there is some gloss to it and I really like that it’s a two in one for me. I will definitely pick this up again at Bath and Body Works.

DIY: Brown Vanilla Sugar Lip Scrub

Brown Vanilla Sugar Lip Scrub

I made a few different kinds of Lip Scrubs last night, just putting things together to really just and find the best combination I could. I really do think I found it, at least for myself. I really hope you guys try it, it was so easy to make and again all of the ingredients I got at the dollar store except for the extra virgin olive oil.

All you need is:
White Sugar
Brown Sugar
Vanilla Extract
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Small Container

You are going to want to start off with 2 spoon full’s of white sugar and then 1 spoon full of brown sugar, then you will add ½ a spoon full of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, ½ a spoon full of Vanilla Exract then 1 spoon full of honey it should look something like this

You will then begin to mix all the ingredients together to get to this texture

At this point you will want to put your mixture in your small container

Now you are going to place this in the fridge for an hour or so to let it all set up and when you take it out it should look something like this

I hope you guys enjoy this; it was so simple and easy to make. You are making a scrub that can cost up to 20 dollars or more in a store and you can make it for under 10 dollars or less, and even make it a few times with all the products I got from the dollar tree. I am even pretty sure; if you looked around the house you would have some if not all of the items. Oh the containers came in a 10 pack for a dollar.

Is this somethings you would want to make?!

Dream Bouncy Blush Review!

Dream Bouncy Blush 05 Fresh Pink

I have heard mix reviews about this blush and I really wasn’t sure what to think of it. So when I went to Walgreens and they were having their 50% off every other product by Maybelline, I really couldn’t beat it so I got it. Well I hate to say this but I am so not impressed with it at all. In order to really get the color you need to build layer upon layer to even see it. The blush its self is like a sponge type texture which I really don’t understand. When you put your finger on the blush and you push down it causes the blush to mold to your finger but it doesn’t bounce back up. So I don’t understand why they call it bounce haha! I really can’t say that I would recommend this to anyone, but below is a picture of one (1) swipe of the blush and next to it is five (5) swipes of it. Have you used this blush? What are your guys thoughts about it?!

With My Little Eye. .

These to me are a nice way to display your brushes but also so the bristles of them don’t get all bent out of shape, cause I know I have been in a hurry and just shoved them in my makeup case, only to open it the next morning to find the bristles in every direction they couldn’t be going in.

I’m all about doing things on a budget because I know not everybody has money at their disposal to always go buy something because I know I don’t. I seem to always gravitate towards DIY things for 3 reasons:  1. Being the fact that you can usually make if for half the cost. 2. It gives me something to do and to challenge myself 3.No one is going to have the same one I have, its going to be different. 

All the product in the pictures where all purchased at the dollar tree (except for the brushes)

Of course if you're willing to spend more money you can always go to Michaels and get these things there. I made a bigger brush holder for my bathroom with products from Michaels only because I wanted it to match my bathroom better. My personal one is pictured below. Michaels does have a better selection of beads to use and they vary in size

It's My Year, Is It Yours?!

OPI It's My Year

I’m in love with this color at the moment, and I have never been one for glittery nail polishes at all. In the bottle it looks to be a pink with gold shimmer glitter but when it’s on your nail it looks more of a pink with purple and gold undertones in it. I used this color to paint of my nails, and I had white underneath and it came out to a pretty purple hue with a gold shimmer. When you’re in the sun more of the purple starts to stand out and when you move your hand or your toes you see the gold come alive.
