The Color That’s Part of my Everyday Life

Today I teamed up with Glossier to share my some of my favorite things! I love to be bright and colorful, in terms of makeup, fashion, and everyday life in general ( including my life as a gamer). So I thought I’d show the color that’s part of my life the most which is the amazing and fabulous PINK!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Eye Makeup

If you couldn’t already tell, trying to cut out sweets has me thinking about them non stop ( I was looking at cake print makeup brushes at forever 21). I wasn’t going to post anything until my next glambag as I am currently planning a day trip to Broomfield ( First trip with the 2 littles under 2). But, after doing my makeup for the day I decided I looked too cute not to post 😛


Products used: Wet n Wild color icon shadow singles in sugar (inner corners) and cheeky (middle of the lid), Peony cosmetics Shadow trio, E.l.f Defining and lengthening mascara in black, E.l.f brightening eyeliner in black.

I thought this was a nice simple look for the day and is actually very similar to the makeup I wear going to church functions.

What makeup did you wear today? comment below your favorite everyday look.

Until next time,


























































Dollar Tree Haul!!!

If you couldn’t already tell, I like wandering around the dollar tree in search of makeup. I’m a very savvy (cheap) person and at this point, the only way I’ve been obtaining makeup ( to feed the habit) is the dollar store and my monthly Ipsy glambag. Luckily for me there are 5 dollar trees near me. Anyways, today was a pretty good day for the dollar tree. I found a Milani Lip Gloss, an Elf HD blush in the color Diva, a Wet n Wild sharpener,  an Elf smudge pot in the color brownie points, and two NYC sparkle eye dusts in the colors amethyst dazzle and bronze shimmer



Top: Milani Lip Gloss, Bottom: Elf HD blush

Let me start off by saying that I thought the lip gloss was orange ( the dollar tree doesn’t have the best lighting). That being said, even with the disappointment regarding color it is a really nice hot pink and the smell reminds me of a chocolate lip smackers gloss ( oh the glossy lipped junior high nostalgia!). It’s definitely a keeper and will be great at summer play dates when touching up your makeup seems to be an unspoken no no.

The HD blush: Super concentrated! The swatch above is one pump! a little definitely goes a long way, and like most ELF face products it comes in a pump ( which I love). I was a little unsure of the brightness of the pink, but I think it will be perfect for a date night when I can no longer rely on winter winds to give my cheeks a nice flush ( I’m not kidding, I don’t even need blush December – March).

Top to bottom: Brownie Points, Amethyst Dazzle, Bronze Shimmer


Smudge Pot: I love love love my blue Cream eyeliner and this has the same smooth consistency! It will be perfect for my go to church look ( Which I will eventually tutorial).

Eye Sparkles: The color concentration is amazing and these are super blend -able. I already had the Aquamarine sparkle from a past haul, so I already knew I loved these before I headed to the checkout.

Sharpener: Sharpened all my pencils and way better than using the sharpener that comes on top of the liner. No complaints.

Dollar Tree Haul

This is my very first haul!!!  Today I found E.L.F, Maybelline, and wet n Wild cosmetics.

download (3)Lipsticks and Balm: Baby lips, NYC lipstick in the colors caramel cream and blue rose, Elf lip stick in movie star, and elf tinted lip balm in grapefruit.

download (1)My favorite out of all these has to be the Blue Rose. I’ve never used a blue based red or pink lipstick and I like the way this one looks on me. The one complaint I would have for the Wet ‘n’ wild lipsticks would be that they aren’t very creamy like the package says,but the color alone is worth the extra pressure needed to get a good amount of color.

shadowstuffFor Eyes and face I Bought E.l.f concealer in medium, E.l.f shimmering face powder in pink, Wet ‘n’ wild shadows in the colors sugar,cheeky,and brass, an E.l.f shadow stick in Midnight Rendezvous, and some NYC Sparkle Eye dust in Aquamarine Sparkle.

download (2).jpegMy favorite of these has to be midnight rendezvous. it has a nice smokey color to it and I think it would work great with sugar for a quick and easy smokey eye (because as a mom it seems like I’m always pressed for time). I also snagged a wet ‘n’ wild shadow brush (not shown). and it is a welcome addition to the obscene amount of brushes I own.

So what stuff have you snagged from the dollar tree? I’d love to know! If you’d like to see any of these products in a tutorial drop a comment below.

until next time.
