Why I Became a Sigma Beauty Affiliate

*Post Contains Affiliate Links*
I really love this new Infographic Sigma Beauty came out with and it really showcases their success!
I joined the Sigma Beauty Affiliate program because I wanted to be able to share such a wonderful brand with the rest of the world and not keep it to myself. It's true, I did hear about Sigma Beauty from Youtube, but I wanted to make a name for myself and thought what a great affiliate program to help start the process! Thanks Sigma Beauty for being an awesome brand and having great products!

Willow&Clo "Sounds Waves" Collection

*This post is not sponsored*
Top Left: Moments Long Wrap Necklace
Top Right: Cream Tiny Disc Necklace
Bottom: Shoot for the Moon Open Circle Necklace

Willow & Clo has a very unique line of jewelry where it has the sound waves for various words, phrases, etc. as its design. I choose these three because first, you need to dreams, in order to accomplish your goals. The Shoot for the Moon open Circle necklace contains my favorite quote of all time, which is, "Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land against the stars." Third, I just really liked the Moments Long Wrap necklace because it would be the perfect piece to dress up any outfit.

The phrase I want to see on their jewelry: " For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son..." John 3:16
Why did I choose this Bible verse? It it pone of the most well-known Bible verse and would be a great way to show support of various faiths and religions. Perhaps in could even inspire those who do not believe, to hear the voice of God speak to them...


NOTD: Maybelliene Color Show in Mystic Green

Two Coats

Today's nail of the day post features Maybelline's Color Show Holographic polish in Mystic Green. I tried to like this polish but unfortunately this one let me down. You can that this is a gorgeous green duo-chrome with gold reflex. The packaging is great and it applied like any other nail polish on the market, however, I HATE the formula of this polish. It is odd. It is thin but thick at the same time. It also appears very streaky on the nails and leaves a weird bubbling effect as well, almost like there are small glitter specs in the polish itself, maybe that is for the "holographic" effect. I have heard this line of polishes by Maybelline are supposed to be great but this particular one is a HUGE let down.
This nail polish can be bought at most drugstores.

Also I am starting to sell clothing, jewelry, etc. on Poshmark!

June 2013 Favorites!

I only have five favorites for this month of June because I was transitioning into apartment living.
The products:
1) Clean & Clear essentials foaming facial cleanser - I like this for several reasons. First, because it does not break me out or dry out my skin. Second, it is a great price. I bought mine on sale for less than $5 dollars!
2) Bath & Body Works Ocean Citrus Anti-Bac Hand Soap - I bought this on sale for $3 dollars during Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual sale and it smells amazing! It also matches the color scheme of my bathroom, blues!
3) Bath & Body Works White Citrus Body Spray - This is my favorite body spray at the moment, it is such a fresh scent!
4) Sephora Instant Eye Makeup Remover - This stuff actually works! I am starting to fall in love with Sephora's collection of products! It will take me a LONG time to finish this product because a little goes a long way!
5) Covergirl Clump Crusher Waterproof Mascara - This mascara does a great job at lengthening and voluminzing my lashes but it is the farthest from being waterproof! I would not use this is you are looking for a waterproof mascara but besides that it's a really great mascara from the drugstore!

What are your June favorites??

North East Bloggers Summer Swap!

I recently participated in a Summer Swap with the North East Bloggers Network.
This has been one of the best swaps I have ever participated in, mainly because, I got some awesome products! I did the swap with a lovely girl named Delia. She has a blog called, Inbliss01, where she blogs about "her family, life, and everything in between."
This is the last swap I am going to be doing for a while but I love participating in them because you get to meet bloggers from across the world and get to try all sorts of different products!
