Weekend Recap

Hey ladies.

I hope everyone had a great weekend, and Monday! This past weekend was pretty much a girls getaway weekend for me. I visited one of my friend's who lives in a city near me and we went out to a very nice little restaurant/dance club. It was the kinda atmosphere that makes you feel good just being there. Dimmed lights, old movie playing on a big screen, DJ playing all your favorite songs, candle lit tables and booths, dance floor, great food and drinks. So needless to say we had a great night talking, eating, and dancing!

The next day followed up with visiting the State Fair (NC). All of you know about the fair and the wonderful joys it entails I'm sure. Turkey legs, candy apples, freshly squeezed lemonade, funnel cakes, Philly cheese steaks ... ok enough of the food.. haha, rides, animals, crafts, pig races, very strange things to see most of them being a hoax (mermaid girl, rabbit with two heads, etc.).

I loved my weekend, here are some pictures I was able to snap ! :)

Tried to self-portrait my outfit! haha.

My friend and her hubby had just got a new kitten that day!

Us at the amazing restaurant/dance place

Fratira's dinner, Greens, Mashed potatoes, and Filet Mignon... Delicious!

Wings, they were soooo good!

Yummy Mixed Drinks

At Cracker Barrel for breakfast

exactly what I was talking about when I said seeing different things at the fair. . . this lady didn't look happy at all to be in there... but then again I can understand why. I honestly only wanted to see cause I thought it was fake (actually wasn't though). Still not sure If i believe she IS actually the smallest woman in the world . . .

So I hope you enjoyed my post, Until next time

Update on my Baby Girl!

Hey Ladies, sooo when I was gone I obviously left out on keeping all of those interested updated on how my little one is doing! Kailei turned one this month, on the 2nd. It seems as if the time flew! I can't believe that my little baby has grown so big and seems to do new things every day now!

Her hair curls like this just by me twirling my fingers around her hair, lucky girl!

This was Kailei on her birthday in the photo above!

Little Chunk!

The picture above was actually taken today, we both love the park!

Trying to drink my coke, wasn't open though ;)

A few milestones Kailei has reached since my last post of her:

2 bottom front teeth!
Saying more syllables
Shakes her head "No"
Claps her hands

Wow right?! She is my angel 0-:)
Hope you enjoyed this post of her and pictures as much as me !

MAC Flirt & Tease Blush

A couple of weeks ago I was on the search for a new blush, can't say I'm not still looking for the perfect one. . . but I did find one that was nice for now.

I went to the MAC Counter after I saw a YT Guru use Flirt & Tease blush. I loved the way it looked on her in the video. I like the way it looks on myself as well but it's nothing too different from my Bare Minerals blush in "True". They both look a lot the same (Sorry I didn't take a picture of that blush for this post but it is somewhere on my blog already).

So Flirt & Tease is a sheertone shimmer blush. It looks somewhat dark in the pan, reminiscent of a beautiful shade of plum. Applied it is exactly what it says, sheer and shimmery the color applied comes off somewhat rosy gold with a hint of plum. Overall I'm satisfied with this blush I think I'm just on the search for one that it is a little more matte and not so sheer. I'm sure I'll reach for this blush plenty though, I have been ever since I bought it everyday I apply my makeup. The good thing about it is it goes well for an everyday look, not overpowering at all.

Any recommendations for a good blush??

Jumpin' Jade - Favorite Fall/Winter Nail Polishes?

Every season brings a long new color trends, new smells, new holidays, new feelings, new clothes, a time for change.

As I was shopping for a few household goods etc. this morning I happened to spot some beautiful dark polishes on one of the beauty aisles... from dark plums, deep burgundy's, browns, and finally the one I personally picked "Jumpin' Jade" A beautiful emerald green color. It's pretty for fall and beautiful for winter. The shade actually reminds me of a Christmas tree.

This is a Sally Hansen Insta-Dri (Fast Dry Nail Color) Polish. I already own a couple of these and my experience is always great. I literally only have to put on one coat to achieve the color I wanted. The apply so smoothly, dry fast, and have a wide range of beautiful colors to choose from. The price at Wal-Mart was $4.50 (USD).

Now on to a few pictures.. *I went a little picture happy* haha.

What are your favorite shades for fall and winter?

Urban Decay Book of Shadows lll

Hello Dolls.

I have ton's of things to post about, but I'd like to start with the most exciting (to me anyways) my newest edition to my makeup collection - the Urban Decay book of Shadows III! Yay!! I finally got got one of these palettes, it is my first book of shadows I've gotten my hands on. . . all thanks to my lovely sister. She gave it to me as a gift for my birthday - I turned 23 Yesterday! And.... my little girl turned 1 years old this past Saturday! (Pictures soon) Time flies!!!

Onto the palette -

Beautiful detailing - This is a LE item so if you want it, hurry! Cost: $54 USD

The mirror actually has two little lights on each side! You can't tell from the pictures though.

I think I need to adjust my camera settings because this picture(s) do these colors NO justice. They are so POW in your face *haha* in real life. This picture however is making them look a little too dull!

I'm sure you didn't have to guess these colors would be very vibrant and pigmented!

Beautiful gift box =)

When you look at this palette it's hard not to see the infinite possibilities of looks just waiting for you to create! I think Urban Decay is known for their bold beautiful colors. This palette definitely doesn't leave you wanting more because it includes great colors, two 24/7 glide on pencils (Ransom (beautiful purple) and Zero (Black), Mini UDPP, and a mirror! The only thing you do need that is not included is of course, eyeshadow brushes.

Look forward to me doing looks using this palette in upcoming posts!

Did you get this palette, if so what do you think?


Look for a Falsies giveaway in my next post! I was contacted by a PR and sent False lashes to give away ages ago, so I really want to get that up for you all!
