Star Wars and makeup?? Be still, my heart <3

bubble nailsI can’t even begin to express the amount of excitement I felt when I opened my social media and was greeted with the news that Covergirl was doing Star Wars themed makeup for a limited edition collection. I about hopped out of my chair… and died…
My two loves merging is the best thing that has happened in a while!
The best thing about this?? This line is set to be released in September, and guess what that is! BIRTHDAY MONTTTHH!!!

Oh, sometimes good things do happen to good people :)

I cannot wait to own every single item that comes out from this collection! and even if I’d never use a pale lilac lipstick, who cares! I want it!! :D!

The Eyebrow Dilemma

We have bendgate, hairgate, dogegate, and all these other mock watergate wannabe scandals, but no one is talking about the real issues here. WHY ISN’T ANYONE ADDRESSING BROWGATE!??

Do you have a minute to talk about our lord and savior, the eyebrow?

It is the single most important thing on your face.. ON YOUR FACE, GUYS!

and you do this!!?



A proper eyebrow will compliment your face and make you look like the fierce bitch you know you are.
Now, I know it CAN be complicated. I did have my own eyebrow mishaps – all types of mishaps! I even shaved off my eyebrows once -_- but I tried, damnit! Everyday I tried until I learned how to do it right.
Figure out what your natural shape is and work with it!

No one is perfect, but there’s no way you need to be lookin like this



I see so many people on a DAILY basis that I wish I could attack with an eyebrow pencil and show them the heresy they’re committing.

September’s Ipsy bag!

I just got my Ipsy bag, maybe 10 minutes ago. I had started the Ipsy bag thing a few months back and I’ve gotten 2, now previous bags that I was just not into. I was going to cancel this service, but had forgotten about it until I got my email confirmation that it was being sent to me lol. I’m super glad I forgot to cancel. This bag seems pretty epic.
I got a powder by Bombshell Cosmetics, which I looked up and have read some great reviews on, and can’t wait to try on myself! I also got a realllyyyyy nice looking lipstick from Hikari, in the color “Cabernet” that I am super excited to use. Got a pencil liner that I didn’t really care for much, but hey lol. Also got a very nice smelling perfume by Harvey Prince, and lastly, a Lavender lotion by BWC(Beauty without cruelty)
All in all, I’m really excited for this month’s bag and I look forward to trying out the things I got and talking about them as I get to use these products more :)


I haven’t posted in a while. Almost a month! 
As always, been working a lot. Since I spend so many hours in front of a computer at work, naturally, getting off work and sitting in front of my computer isn’t how I want to spend my evenings.. But I do need to get in the habit of posting more.


Been using the “Sheer Envy” primer by Hard Candy for some weeks now, and I really like it. I had heard a lot of good things about it, so I went and picked it up. Makes my face super smooth :D

Also, I’ve been having a thing with Coldplay for weeks now. I downloaded the entire discography and I’ve been listening non-stop. IDK what’s wrong with me :/
That Coldplay thing has also lead to a Placebo thing and I’ve also been listening non-stop to Placebo -_-

When I have the time, I’ve also been getting into “Dianetics” finally, after YEARS of having the book sitting on my shelf! Why? Because knowledge, that’s why! The book is more of a glorified self help book than anything. Looking forward to finishing it



Also, I GOT A CAT LIKE A WEEK GO!!! His name is Loki. and he’s awesome :D



My birthday is coming up in a few weeks! David wants to Drive to NY, and I think that’s an aweessommeee idea! Can’t wait to be back in NY, even it’s just for a few days! Def looking forward to a roadtrip! :D

Been curious as to what else to try as far as makeup. I have so much foundation right now, I don’t think I’ll be getting more for a while.. and I the ones I have, I’m pretty ok with lol
What should be my next buy? All ideas are welcomed :D

Hard Candy “Feelin Blue”

I’ve been working on learning how to do eye makeup for a few weeks now, since it is probably the one thing I really am not good at. Today I decided to play around with the Hard Candy eyeshadows that I had gotten a while ago, but never really have used, since, eyeshadow is not really something I use daily. I used the “Feelin Blue” eyeshadow set and decided to experiment with it a little bit




I chose the blue colors today because I was wearing a blue shirt today and I thought it would be cool to match my eyeshadow to my shirt. yay me. lol.
What I really like about these eyeshadows it that they are so pigmented and you don’t really need a lot of it to have some serious color going. Pricing at around $6 at walmart, they really make for the ideal thing a beginner like myself to start with when it comes to eyeshadow.
Plainly put, I love it.
I played around with it for a little bit and the end result was really nice in my opinion.
For the rest of my face I used my Revlon ColorStay foundation, which I haven’t used in a while and I was sad to find that my opinion on it may have changed. I hadn’t used this foundation in maybe 4 months, and today I opted for it. I like that it is full coverage, but upon applying it, it felt very heavy and not like the other foundations I’ve been using which have been very light and give off a natural glow to the face. This one seemed really heavy and a little difficult to put on, as it became extremely streaky while applying with my brush, so I switched to a beauty sponge to remedy the problem. I really want to think it’s because the foundation maybe needs to be replaced, but maybe it’s because, as I much as I don’t want to admit it, I have fallen in love with Covergirl’s “Ready set Gorgeous” foundation. Maybe it’s time to try something else by Revlon? Not sure.



I finally gave in and got a nude lipstick by Jordana!!! Surprisingly enough, I ended up loving it. Jordana is extremely inexpensive makeup and the lipsticks I got were around $2.99 each, so I did pick up a few, and I REALLY love the lipsticks. They are matte, and the smell very nice, and they also wear very nicely. The foundation though, was not really something I liked, but that’s another post lol

In the end I was really happy with the way the eyeshadow came out, though I know I still need some more practice, and I really liked the nude lipstick I picked out as well :)



Shortly after taking this picture, I went to make garlic bread, and for some reason the butter EXPLODED and got everywhere, ruining this perfectly awesome shirt I was wearing LOL but hey, at least I got a pic :D

The monotony of life

it’s a strange place to be in
Everything seems the same. It all starts to melt together into one boring clump of life.
Everyday, waking up and doing the exact same thing, eating the same things, always the same.
My life was never this way. I enjoyed a wealth of new things and places all the time. I have never liked staying still, or being in one place for too long..
But as they say, “opposites attract” I ended up with someone who hates the meaning of the word “new,” At first I thought I could deal with it. I mean, yeah, he’s a great guy. But sometimes you need more than just “great.” Sometimes the perfect person is NOT what you’re looking for. So after I realized this, I felt like an ass. “why would I want to date an ass?” I kept asking myself. and I don’t WANT to date a jerk, no one wants that. But it would be nice to share things with someone who can share them with me. This isn’t my fiance’s fault at all. But I am starting to resent him for it. For my own boredom, and my ever growing feeling of being stuck.
My fiance can be described in one word. “safe.”
he has had the same job for 7 years, which isn’t bad.
He’s comfortable being told what to do, what to want, and when to want it.
He sticks to what he knows and only that.
He doesn’t really have a spark or creativity and it’s very hard for him to see things past his own POV.
Now, these aren’t necessarily BAD traits. He’s attentive, he listens, he’s a solid person to depend on, he’s funny, supportive, and those things re appreciated.
But after almost 3 years, I feel that I am missing something. Something crucial. I feel like I am missing a part of myself. The part of me that loved making new friends, and doing new things.. I am missing the very part of me that brought my fiance and I together. So how can I be myself, while still hold on to a relationship.
Some say “Compromise” is the way, but I can’t help but feel I’ve been the one doing all the compromising. I’ve given up my independence, my want to travel, my friends, my way of living, I’ve not only compromised but given it up altogether..
Why do I resent the person I love for changes that he didn’t make me take..
These are changes I knew I had to make to make this relationship work.. and the question I keep asking myself is “is it worth it?”
Is it though? Is losing sight of yourself and your goals worth being in a relationship for?
Am I selfish?
Is he really just better off without ME? instead of the other way around?

Obviously I am in need of serious guidance.. -_-
