Beauty Things I Suck At!

This tag was created by the lovely Kim, check out her YouTube channel

Here are a few things I cannot do well at all realting to beauty/fashion/makeup:

1) Applying eyeliner on my upper lash line
For whatever reason, this might like the most trivial thing for most people but for me, it's impossible

2) Doing anything with my hair
You would think that being a girl, it would come naturally but for me it does not! I can't braid my hair, I can't curl my hair, I can't straighten my hair!!

3) Painting my nails
I almost always find a way to smudge my nails before they are dry because I don't have much patience when it comes to waiting for my nails to dry

4) Taking my makeup off at night
This is really just a bad habit but I always forget to take my makeup off before I go to bed

5) Wearing heals
If I wear a pair of shoes with a heel more than two inches, I can't walk in them and I look super awkward!


I Tag All of you to do this as well!

Valentines Day Outfit Ideas

Lashes of London Competition

Top Left: Bound Lace Tee

Etail PR is currently holding a blogger competition featuring Lashes of London and I just could not enter because of all the amazing pieces Lashes of London has to offer!

These are some of my favorite pieces currently on Lashes of London and they all incorporate the current fashion trends that you see everywhere: Lace, Baroque, Circle Skirts and Sequins! Best of all, all the pieces except the Netz Heart Back Sequin Tee are on sale!

My favorite piece of all of these is the Bound Lace Tee because I love lace pieces. They can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. You could definitely pair this tee with a pair of crazy print pants, like the Elfin Jacquard Capri Trousers and a black blazer.

The Mini skirt and Sequin top is a perfect combination for a night out on the town with the girls!

You can enter the competition here. And check out Lashes of London's website here.

P.S. Save 10% on your purchase with code LUVU10

What are your favorite pieces?

Work Outfits of the Week: Feb 4-8


So this week I decided to film an outfits of the week video so everybody can see the types of outfits I wear to work on a regular basis! I have to dress business casual because that is the dress code of my office. I work for a local hospital in their Information Services department as an Application Specialist for business and financial systems. My job sounds complicated, but it really isn't.

I get the majority of my work clothing at JC Penny, Target, Marshalls and Kohls.

Thanks for watching and thank you for 25 followers , you guys are awesome!

Nail of the Day: OPI for Sephora in QVC What I Mean?

For Christmas I got a nail set from Sephora containing five nail polishes and today I decided to try one of these polishes. The color I am wearing is called QVC What I Mean?

This color is beautiful! I would describe it as an opaque muted mauve-pink. It has the signature Sephora by  OPI nail polish formula and has the perfect finish! It was opaque in two coats.  It was really hard to capture this color in a photograph because it is so close to my skin tone! I also applied a base and top coat by Beauty Secrets, which you can purchase at Sally's Beauty Supply store.

Would you wear this color?

P.S. I messed around with editing this photo using iPhoto on my MacBook Pro. Let me know what you think in the comments xx

February Task: Blogger's Office & Organization

February's Beauty Blogger Task  is all about blogger organization and office space.


  • Where do you blog? I typically blog in my bedroom. I will sometimes sit at my desk. I usually  sit on my bed. I would love to be organized in how I blog eventually when I get my own place, to maybe even have an office/room dedicated to blogging and videos would be amazing! But for now, I have to deal with the space I have been given.
  • What do you blog on? I blog on my laptop, which is a MacBook Pro 13". I also use it to edit and upload my YouTube videos.
  • Do you have any blogging rituals? I like to have snacks with me if I am working on a long post, otherwise I tend to listen to music in the background.
  • How do you keep your blogging ideas organized? I used to keep a journal with blog/video ideas but now if a topic comes to mind, I will just sit down and start blogging.
  • Do you have a blogging schedule for the week? Or the month? I don't have a schedule at this point. I blog when I want to and I post as many or as few times as I want to. There may be time periods where I blog three or four times a week and times where I only blog once a week, if that.
  • If you review products, how do you keep track of what needs to be reviewed in your collection? 
  • What do you do with all your "old" data? For now, everything is stored on my laptop. I would like to invest in an external hard drive because storing all these photos and raw video footage takes up a LOT of space on your computer. I will occasionally deleted old photos and videos but I would like to be able to keep everything in case my blog gets accidentally deleted.
  • For fun, what beauty/non-beauty products do you need to have on hand near your blogging station? Honestly, like I said in a different questions, I keep snacks or drinks nearby.

Haul! Old Navy, Macys and Bath&Body Works!

Hello lovelies!
Today I went shopping with my mom and my sister and I picked up a few things at the mall.

This red sweater I bought at Macys. It is by Tommy Hilfiger. It was priced for $49.50 but it was on the 50% rack, so I got it for around $30.000 dollars. It is so pretty and warm! I cannot wait to wear it!


These two long sleeve tops I bought at Old Navy. Old Navy is having a HUGE sale in stores right now! I got both of these tops for $12.00 dollars!! I liked them because they are a little different with the color and stripes, so I thought they would be perfect for early Spring when it is still a little cold outside.


My last stop was Bath & Body Works. I bought a new body spray of my favorite scent, White Citrus. I also bought a new soap in the scent Berry Sangria for my bathroom, that I share with my two sisters. The scent is very strong and very berrylicious :) It was also on sale for $3.00 dollars.


I decided to buy five little hand sanitizers because they were also on sale for 5 for $5.00 dollars. Pretty good deal, right? I bough the scents Fresh Picked Apples, Aqua Blossom, Fresh Lavender, PAris Amor and Stress Relief. I like to carry these in my purse, keep them in my desk and my makeup storage. 
They are really handy!

I also went shopping at Target and filmed a video with my sister (will be uploaded in a few days).
