Wine Tasting and an EOTD


Hi Lovelies :-),
I hope you’re all having an amazing week! Happy Friday! I’ve been relaxing so much during my week off, it’s amazing and much needed. Yesterday I had the pleasure of joining my best friend, her mom, and a few friends for wine tasting in Temecula (located in Southern California). We went to four wineries and had about 25 different kinds of wines, it was a good day lol. Here’s the eye of the day from yesterday along with some pics of the trip:

What are you all up to tonight?





Hello Lovelies :-),

How is your December moving along? This month is always very crazy and very expensive for me, thank goodness for saving up!
E.l.f. had a 50% off sale for their Studio stuff and I picked up a few things because it was a great deal (I keep telling myself that). As soon as I had placed my order, I received a $15 gift card from Sephora and OF COURSE had to pick some stuff up there because…because I felt like it lol. My Sephora is in the mall and so I got sucked into picking up a few other things as well. Lets just say that my wallet was whimpering by the end of the day. Here are the goodies:

Photobucket The E.l.f. order as a whole. Pardon my bed sheets, it was too cloudy and cold outside to take pictures in better lighting. Items here: 32 piece eye palette, concealer palettes in Light and medium, HD powder, Gotta Glow blush, and two eye brushes from the Studio collection.

Closeup/Swatch of Gotta Glow:
PhotobucketPhotobucket A perfect dupe for NARS Albatross, except this is only $3 regularly. Amazing color, finely milled, and long lasting. Creates an amazing glow.

The Brushes:
Photobucket “C” brush and Contour brush. Normally $3 each.

Concealer Palettes:
PhotobucketPhotobucket Light and Medium, normally $3 each. The concealers are light to medium coverage with a creamy and easy to blend formula. They lasted about 8 hours on me without creasing or caking.

High Definition Powder:
Photobucket Normally $6. Will post a review soon :-).

32 piece eye palette:
Photobucket Normally $10. I picked this up for my sister.

All Over Color Stick in Golden Peach $1:
PhotobucketPhotobucket This wasn’t part of the online order, my bf picked it up for me randomly at Target and I looove the color :-D.

Mall Haul:

MUFE Mat Velvet+
Photobucket $34 at Sephora, I use shade 20…aka “glow in the dark.”

Smith’s Rosebud Salve in a squeezy tube!
Photobucket I was so excited about this! I love the stuff and it’s soo much less messy in a tube. $6 at Sephora.

Black Poppy Nail Polish from PacSun:
Photobucket It doesn’t have a color name or number, but it’s $3.50 and I’ve seen it at 3 stores so far. I’m sure you can find it at your local store. This was two coats.

Express Top:
Photobucket I got this on sale for $15.99. I’m going to belt it and wear it with skinny jeans and heels :-).

Have you done any shopping for yourself lately?

  • My friends and boyfriend make me happy 🙂
  • Besides makeup and fashion, I love cooking, reading, observing, the beach, my dogs, organizing, movies, and music with good lyrics
  • I can’t remember when I did something for myself that I really enjoyed, so I decided to create this blog
