Hello….Long time no blogging…

Hello my loves! It’s been a long time since I blogged about anything and I have been pretty busy graduating and getting my bachelors degree in Communications Marketing. I also have a 1-year-old daughter and I have been looking for a job! I haven’t found a job yet but I am not giving up hope. Anyway, on to some beauty news!!! If, you remember from my last few posts about shopping my stash, that is exactly what I’ve been doing. I bought some new things here and there but nothing major. I will post a “hiatus haul” in a few days. I have tons of new things to post about. I used up a few things and discovered a new-found love in a Chanel palette I bought about 6 years ago!!! I know, I know that’s a long time but there is more where that came from but, I will be sure to keep you updated.

Back 2 MAC!!



As you can see I have a lot of MAC lipsticks. Those are not all of them either!! I love lipstick period but, as I said in my previous post I need to cut back. I will Back 2 Mac my empty items. Back to Mac is MAC’s recycling program. When you have six empty containers you can go to any Mac container or store and trade your empties for 1 lipstick or 1 eyeshadow.

I already traded my 6 empties for this Mac Lovelorn lipstick. Doing Back 2 Mac makes me want to use my products and it felt good to know I did something good and I was rewarded in the end! If your confused about what can be traded check the boxes and it will tell you!!

Thanks for reading!!

No dry time Manicure!

20120411-012258.jpg

It has been such a busy week!!! I haven’t had the time to really pamper myself. Every Sunday night I try my best to give myself a little time. With being a mom and doing homework it’s hard to get my alone time. Yesterday, I had 30 minutes to myself to do a semi quick manicure!!! Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips. I forgot the name of them but as you can see its the houndstooth design. I love these so much. The kicker is the no dry time. On the packaging it says it takes about 15 mins but I thinks it takes about an half an hour if you want them to look good. These did chip after one day because I do soooooooo much with my hands but I still love them anyway. I use these all the time and they do last for a good week and a half without my constant typing and four times a day dish washing. I hope you like these!! Thank you for reading!

Shopping My Stash

This only a sneak peak of what I have in my makeup stash. I’m not calling this a collection because it is truely time to use all of what I have. I mean to use things but I just forget about them.

I really need to stop buying makeup! So what I plan to do is use what I have and try to fall in love with the items I stopped using and maybe I can find some new favorite things. I have makeup I haven’t even opened yet so that is bad and a waste of money. I always felt that I would not open something until I used up one thing. That has not happened yet. So the best thing for me to do is to open things and force myself to use them. I  will be rotating items in my makeup bag to help me get some use out of some things. I did throw away some things that were old and to help with the process of elimination I gave away some things on Makeup Alley. Thanks for reading!! Let’s start saving some money! Love and Lipstick!

My Makeup Inspiration!

I LOVE RIHANNA. I love her fashion and makeup. When I look for makeup looks I tend to get my inspiration from what Rihanna is wearing. This picture is about two years old but I just found it and I love it. I’m not a wearer of eyeshadow but she makes me want to wear some just for this look. For an everyday look I would wear a navy blue eyeliner to take the place of the blue shadow.  Who is your makeup inspiration?
