Monday nails...Red Velvet Cake and Mocha Icing

Sinful Colors- Lying Nails/Flirting Nails

Pb & f

mid-november crush list...

Covergirl Invisible Concealer in the shade 'tawny'- It took me literally forever to find the perfect concealer, and when I say 'perfect', I'm referring to shade. I'm not one of those obnoxious people who go into a drug store and haphazardly open up products to make sure I'm getting the right shade of concealer/foundation or whatever to the detriment of other's health. Instead, I take the harder, more bumpier route and 'buy and hope'-that is, I buy products, take them home and hope for the best. So, when I bought this concealer and tried it at home, I squealed with delight upon finding it was the perfect shade for me! Score!

NP Set Eyeliner Pencil in the shade 'dubai'- best fucking pencil ever! It's rich in color, and glides on smooth. I prefer this pencil to any other I've ever used.

Revlon Lipstick in Papaya- Love it! Love it! Love it! When I saw this on display in Ulta, I was magnetically drawn to it. I usually shy away from brighter colors when it comes to makeup, but this coral colored beauty..this..I had to buy it! It's non-sticky, with just the right consistency, and tasteless. Exactly how I like my lip glosses. Also, the color isn't as bright when applied as it is in the tube, which is a plus for me!

Revlon Beyond Natural Smoothing Primer- This made the mid-november crush list because, quite fucking frankly, it's the only primer I own. Although, I have no other primer to compare it to, it is amazing and works as the perfect base for my foundation. Maybe, a couple of months down the road, I'll change my mind about this product, but for now...yeah..

Fit Me Maybelline foundation in the shade 355- Oh my god! I can't say enough about this product without appearing like an addict. Smooth, glides on, perfect shade, so far has stayed put for 7ish hours on end...and yeah, that's about it.

Wet n Wild in the shade Caught Red Handed- this color reminds me of Marilyn Monroe..timeless and classic. When I want red nails, I automatically reach for this!

Sinful Colors in the shade Rich in Heart- Reminds me of plum pudding, and I have no idea why because I've never eaten or even seen plum pudding in my life. Yeah, I'm weird like that.

Wet n Wild in the shade Sagreena the Teenage Witch- Favorite polish of the three. Reminds me of Christmas, and I'm a Christmas fanatic, so...! I'll probably do a holiday nail design soon using this polish....

Bath and Body Works hand sanitizer- Ugggh! I can't get enough of these two! Yes, I love them equally! Unlike other sanitzers that reek strongly of alcohol. These little babies smell exactly like Coconut Caramel and Mocha! I will be including more of these in my Christmas stocking as a gift to myself! Yup, I do that too...So what?

Mother, Son and Textures

As you guys know, I love me some details and textures. If you're not a texture freak like me...well, who's forcing you to look, right? ;)

My Master Bath Revamped

  My actual dressing room is downstairs, so when revamping my bathroom, I wanted to keep a tray handy to hold my most used products and also to hold the jewelry I take off before bed. I found these adorable trays and glasses from various thrift stores, and I had sooo much fun searching for them. In one glass, I've got my fave nail polishes, and the other holds my fav necklace and hubby's watch and chains. I had so much fun working on this project. Next is the master bedroom! I'm so excited!


With the exception of my products, the adorable camel(gift from hubby), and jewelry, everything was thrifted! 
Yaaaay for thrifting! :)
