If you use twitter, on occasion, you may see these three hashtags pop up in various bloggers tweets. I thought it would be helpful to explain to what each every of these hashtags mean and what they represent on twitter.


Review: Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser

Hi everybody! Today I come to you with another product review. This time I am reviewing the Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser. I picked this product up from Target a few weeks ago and finally tried it for the first time! It is formulated without hard chemicals, sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, dyes and phthalates. Sounds great, right?

Review: Aveeno ultra-calming makeup removing wipes

I am always trying out new makeup wipes to find the best ones and these are my new favorite! These are the Aveeno ultra-calming makeup remover wipes. I got these for Christmas and finally starting using them about a week ago.  They are oil free, noncomedogenic, dermatologist tested and ophthalmologist tested.  First of all they are very calming! They have an ingredient on them, which is similar to Chamomile, which leaves your skin feeling smooth. I find them very calming because of their scent as well. They do an excellent job at taking your makeup off, both eye makeup and face makeup. They don't burn my eyes either!  These are by far some of the best drugstore makeup remover wipes I have ever tried and will be a favorite for a long time!

What are your favorite makeup removes wipes?


Nail of the Day: NCLA Nail Laquer in Hello, I Love You

Today's nail of the day post is featuring my new NCLA Nail Laquer in Hello,  I love You. I received this nail polish in my Little Black Bag. It is described as a "rich, bright, florescent berry" on NCLA's website. It also one of their best selling colors! 

two coats with a base and top coat.

My thoughts:  I think this is a great nail polish. It is opaque in two coats. It is a lovely color and it could be worn year-round.  I would love to try more of these polishes in the future.

NCLA Nail Laquer is 100% free of DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Camphor and never tested on animals. 
These polishes retail for $16.00 USD.

You can buy them on NCLA's website http://www.shopncla.com/ 

Would you wear this color? Have you tried any other polishes by NCLA?



What I Got: International Secret Santa Swap!

A fellow blogger, Sandra, setup this really cool idea of doing a secret santa swap over the holidays! I decided to participate and today I am FINALLY sharing with you what I received in the swap!

First, she sent me this really cute card

She sent me this amazingly adorable owl pattern seater. This will be perfect for those extra cold days/nights because it is a very thick sweater! She did a great job choosing this because I am obsessed with owls.

She also sent me this little trinkets. 

The is the last thing she sent me, it was a Barry M lipstick is this crazy green color. It is not as intimidated once you apply it.



'Girl Behind the Blog'

So I have been blogging/making youtube videos for a little over two years now and I thought it might be a good idea to let you all know a little bit more about my personal life. I saw Kerralina do this post over on her blog and it really inspired me!

So far starters, my full name is Elizabeth.

I am half Italian and half Polish.

I am currently employed as an Application Specialist for a local hospital. 

I graduated from college in May 2012 with my Bachelor of Arts in Information Science. 
I am considering going back to school for my Masters Degree in Information Science.

I have been dating my boyfriend for almost five years.

I love to travel! My goal is to travel to Europe within the next five years. 
I would go sooner but it is so expensive to fly internationally!

I am a Christian.

I would love to see other fellow bloggers do this post as well

xoxo Liz

Kindle Book Haul!

Today, I made a goal on Goodreads to read 10 books in 2013. Goodreads is a website for readers and book recommendations. Basically, every time you read a book, you can create a review for it. It works similar to many websites where you can write reviews for products you try out and let other people know how much you loved or hated them, except this site is strictly for book reviews.

These are the three books I bought for my Kindle today:

I am a huge fan of the Pretty Little Liars series and this book is the second book in the side series, Pretty Little Secrets. This book takes place at the end of the 7th grade. This book is going to be released on January 2, 2013.

This is the twelfth book in the Pretty Little Liars series! In this book the girls (Hanna, Aria, Spencer, Emily) go on a cruise over spring break.

I have heard amazing things about this trilogy, so I decided  why not read it? You can get the Kindle edition for $1.99 USD! I is supposed to be similar to The Hunger Games and Divergent series.

What books have you picked up recently?
