MCM- Ft. Benefit HOOLA Bronzer

Hello Dolls,

This weeks MCM, features an oldie but a goodie. Benefit cosmetics HOOLA Bronzer. I'm not the biggest fan of contouring but lately I've gotten in the habit of doing it, especially when I'm going on a date night. It gives my face a fierce look and depth. 

The HOOLA Bronzer is something that should be in every girls collection, such a perfect piece. The shade is beautiful. You have to use  a very light hand, a little goes a long way. Otherwise you will have a brown streak on your face. The key to bronzing, BLENDING! Blend it out girl. I put just a dab on my chin & forehead, when it comes to my cheeks, I start high on my cheek and come just to about the middle of my cheek, towards my mouth, finishing just below the apples of my cheeks. 

Ipsy Glam Bag -August 2014- Beauty Schooled

Hello Dolls,

I don't know about you, but I'm loving my August Ipsy Glam Bag. I received a lip balm, urban decay mascara, coastal scents duo blush, an eye liner and finally a pore primer. This months bag is a little different, at least for me, I had not seen a plastic long one before. Not to shabby. 

Makeup Crush Monday (MCM) Ft: Physicians Formula NUDE WEAR

Hello Dolls,

I'm back with another segment of MCM (Makeup Crush Monday) and this weeks MCM features a few pieces from the Physicians Formula NUDE WEAR collection. I had to get the blushes & bronzers. I'm LOVING them. The colors are gorgeous and give me a lovely glow. They come in pink/peachy one in a matte finish and the other is a shimmer and the same goes for the Bronzer, one is lighter than the other and also, come in a matte finish and shimmer. Their are a total of two blushes and two bronzers in this collection and of course I had to get them all. Luckily I got them when they were on sale at Target buy one get one free. 

The second item is the touch of glow concealer/highlight. I have been on the hunt for this bad boy for WEEKS!!! I finally found it at CVS, I don't know why I didn't go their first, lol! Anywho, I'm really liking it. It's not a full coverage concealer, but I like it as a highlight. It gives me a dowy glow. 

Have you tried anything from the Physicians Formula NUDE WEAR Collection? If so, what are you crushing on?

Thanks for reading!


Erin Condren; Life Planner

Hello Dolls,

I'm sooooo siked beyond words about my Erin Condren Life Planner. 

Here it is at a pictures. 

Love that I got to customize my name & blogger/YouTube name on it.

Year at a glance

Monthly calendar, love the blocks big enough to write in. 

Love the morning, day, and night daily blocks. Although, I think I'll tape over it and put, Blog/Vlog, School/Work and Mom Stuff instead, to keep myself on track. For the side notes I haven't decided what I'll put there. Maybe assignments and weight loss info.

I'm the note section, I think I'll use it to put phone numbers in. If You're anything like me, you probably haven't memorized a phone number since 2002, haha! 

Stickers!!!! Who doesn't love stickers!

It's a two year planner and while steep in price, it's worth it! I just received it today and I'm already in love. I had separate  planners for personal stuff, work, school and mom stuff. Well not anymore. It will be all in one!!

Have you tried an Erin Condren life planner? What did you think of it?

July Ipsy Glam Bag - Sensationally Sun Kissed

Hello dolls!

Julys Ipsy glam bag was ok. I received a Hang Ten sun tan oil-I don't tan so I won't be using it. Tints & Sass lip & cheek tint, love the color but I have a few benefit tints, Nailtini polish in a orangy color, pretty shimmer, although it's sheer and requires a few coats. A bare minerals  eyeshadow in brown, cream my and pretty and a Clear Clinic vanished clear spot treatment-worked well for my acne scars.

What did you all think of your July Ipsy Glam Bags?

Makeup Crush Monday-Elf Conturing Blush & Bronzer

Hello Dolls!! 
I wanted to share this tag with you all and I hope to keep up with it. We have all heard of "Man Crush Monday" where ladies post pictures of a man, usually a celebrity, they have a crush on. I much prefer Makeup Crush Monday. 

This Monday I'm really crushing on this Elf Conturing Blush & Bronzer duo.

I purchased it a few weeks ago at my local target and my oh my, am I impressed. I'm not usually a fan of Conturing because, well frankly I felt it was a makeup step I didn't need and thought it to be pointless. I'm so glad I gave it a try. Contouring takes practice, patience, and a soft hand at the brush. This duo I have has a shimmer in it. I will go back and purchase a matte duo. I don't like the idea of having a shimmer at work (I work in a hospital and think it's unprofessional for me to look like I'm going to a club-my personal opinion) anywho, I am loving this duo, beautiful and affordable, who doesn't love a great bargain!!!!
Highly recommend this to everyone!

What's your Makeup Crush Monday?
