I'm back today with another Nail Of The Day post! Today I wanted to share with you guys Essie's Mint Candy Apple. For some reason this color shows up really blue in pictures and it showed up really blue on my Favorite Spring Nail Polishes video. It's actually a mint color, but I feel like it has some aqua tones to it. This color is pretty pigmented. It's a super pretty color for spring.
I got this at Kmart for $8.50.
What do you guys think of this color? Tell me in the comments! :)
Happy Monday! It's a rainy Monday here, which is kind of making it hard for me to wake up! If I could go back to bed, I probably would haha. This morning I woke up, ate my bagel with coffee, did my school work (almost done with senior year!!!), then started working on this post. :) I hope you guys all had a good Easter weekend! My family and I went to my grandparents house for Easter Sunday. We went to church, then had an amazing lunch, then had an Easter egg hunt! I have't had an Easter egg hunt for quite a few years, but I thought this year it would be really fun to have one. :) Also, the weather was super nice over the weekend! It was perfect weather for shorts, which I'm sure I blinded someone with my paleness. Haha! I can't wait until the weather gets warmer so I can start tanning. I know I could use self tanner, but I don't care for them. But it looks like the warm weather isn't going to last, the weather man was saying there might be highs in the 50's by the end of the week. Which isn't too bad, but it's not like the 70's that we've been having. This weeks picture is a picture of Cali or Mean Kitty. A lot of people have asked me why I call her Mean Kitty, and it's because she's mean! She was literally the meanest out of her siblings. She's a little more nice now, but she still has a mean side.
1. Do you like to ride roller coasters? Kind of. I rode my first roller coaster when my family went on a trip to Silver Dollar City a long time ago. And, I was doing okay on the roller coaster, but then we went through a tunnel and that kind of freaked me out. If it wasn't for the tunnel, I think everything would have been fine. I was pretty young when I rode it, but part of me keeps wanting to go someplace and try a roller coaster again. If I'm feeling crazy, maybe a roller coaster that goes…wait for it…upside down. :O 2. What is something you're looking forward to? No buy April being over. ;) Actually, I'm really looking forward to my 18th birthday. I have so many ideas that I want to do on that day. I don't want to have a party. I've never really been into birthday parties. I don't like all the attention on me. It makes me nervous! I'm for sure going to Starbucks on my birthday because I get a free drink on my birthday! :) 3. Have you been burning any good candles lately? Funny you should ask, because I just went to Bath & Body Works and bought some fun springy ones. I actually did a haul over on my beauty channel. :) I've been burning my Citron Cedarwood candle a lot. It's a nice masculine scent and I love it! 4. Current nail polish: Right now I'm wearing Essie's Mint Candy Apple. 5. Have you ever gotten a makeover at Sephora or MAC? I got a makeover at Sephora once. They were having this free event thing for the VIB's and giving out makeovers. So my mom thought it would be a good idea for us to get one. Her makeover went really well, the lady did a good job on her. The same lady did makeup on me, and it turned out terrible! She did a brown smokey eye, and some really crazy black eyeliner on me. It would be the perfect look for someone who doesn't have my squinty eyes. Needless to say, I wasn't very happy! - - - - - Now here's where you guys come in! Copy this list of questions and answer them down in the comments. I love reading your guys' answers! :) The Questions: 1. Do you like to ride roller coasters? 2. What is something you're looking forward to? 3. Have you ten burning any good candles lately? 4. Current nail polish: 5. Have you ever gotten a makeover at Sephora or MAC? - - - - - Hope you guys have a great week! :) -Chelsea ♥
Happy Saturday! This morning I'm starting off the day with coffee and a cinnamon raisin bagel. I've been obsessed with bagels lately. And, I don't even like raisins, but since they're baked into the bread they're not too bad. Not really sure what I have planned for today. It's supposed to be pretty nice out, so I'm hoping I get to get outside today! I'm for sure going to Starbucks sometime because I'm super close to getting a gold card! :) I'm so excited! Highlights this week include: Cute dogs, Starbucks, anddddd candles!

Hi guys! Happy Friday! :) Today I wanted to share with you a product that's pretty new to the drugstore, or it's a new product for my town anyways. I feel like my town is the last town to get the new beauty products when they come out. Anyways, this is the Revlon Highlighting palette! I picked one up in the shade Bronze Glow. When I first heard about these my first thought was that they look very similar to the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks. I've never tried the BB Shimmer Bricks, just because they're a little bit expensive. So, when I saw a similar drugstore product I thought I'd try it out. :)
The packaging of this product is very similar to the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick. I like this though, because you can see the product before you buy it. And, it's not a super big/thick container, so it won't take up too much space in your makeup storage.
Bronze Glow has 5 shimmery shades that add just the perfect glow to your face. I like that this product doesn't allow you to apply to much product. With one swipe in the pan you have the perfect amount! And, even though this product looks super glittery in the pan, it actually doesn't show up that glittery when applied. When you wear it, you can just faintly see some sparkles. I'm so excited to wear this in the summer when I'm tan! I think it will look really nice on tan skin.
Now here's a swatch!
I swatched all the colors individually and then on the far right is a swatch of what they look like mixed together. As you guys can see, they aren't super dark, so you won't have to worry about getting too much on your brush.
Today, I wanted to share with you guys one of my new favorite blushes! This is Milani's baked blush in Luminoso. I'm kind of new to the brand Milani, but a lot of people really like it so I picked this up and try it out. :)
The packaging of this blush is a bit bulky, but it actually comes with a mirror and brush under the blush. How cool is that? I like that you can actually see the blush. That was really handy when I was buying the blush!
Luminoso is a really pretty peach with some gold shimmer. This blush is really pigmented, so a little blush goes a long way! I personally really like the shimmer that's in the blush. It just adds a glow to your face without being too much. Also, I think this blush would make a great dupe for MAC's mineralized blush in Warm Soul. It's not an exact match, but it's pretty close. :)
And here's what I was telling you guys above, this comes with a mirror and a brush!
Now, here's a swatch! :)
I found this blush at Kmart for $6.99. What do you guys think of this blush? Have you tried any Milani blushes? Tell me in the comments! :) -Chelsea ♥
Happy Monday! :) I hope you guys all had a great weekend. I took a little road trip this weekend, and by little I mean a VERY little road trip! It was only like a 2 hour drive haha. But, it was a lot of fun anyway. :) It was a much needed break from the city life. I'm more of a country girl than a city girl haha. So, the drive to where I was going wasn't too bad. It was a beautiful day! But then the drive home, well… that's a different story. It was really rainy in the morning and after church things kind of cleared up. Then when I hit the highway, it just started to pour. It was actually kind of scary because I could hardly see! Then when I finally made it home, it was still pouring. Oh but this story gets even crazier! It snowed this morning! Like seriously? So now today is pretty chilly out. I hope it warms up by Easter because I have a super cute new dress to wear! :) This weeks picture is one that I took yesterday on the way home when I couldn't see the road. Don't worry, I wasn't driving!
I want to mention real quick, that the Monday Questionnaire is getting a makeover! Instead of 10 questions, I'm shortening it to 5 questions. I've been thinking lately that 10 questions is just too many! Let me know in the comments if you like this change. :) 1. Mood: Excited! Okay, I'm about ready to take this question out of the questionnaire because I literally type excited every week. Anyways, I'm just really excited for this week! I don't have too much going on, but I just know it'll be a good week. :) 2. If you could only wear one makeup product for the rest of the year, what would it be and why? Mascara! Specifically my Maybelline Mega Plush mascara. It adds a bunch of volume and length to my lashes. Before I really got into makeup, I would just wear mascara and I was really happy with that. It added something without being too much. 3. Are you going to any concerts any time soon? I am actually! I'm planning on going to Warped Tour this year and I'm so excited! I went a couple of years ago and had a blast! One thing I love about Warped Tour is that there are so many bands there so it's basically like 30 concerts in one day. Anyways, I'm really excited for We The Kings, The Summer Set, and The Ready Set just to name a few. :) 4. Current nail polish: Essie - Resort Fling. I don't have a blog post on this color yet, but one will be up later this week! 5. Something you really need to do but keep putting off? I really need to clean my makeup brushes. I just hate doing it and I can't get motivated to wash them. Maybe since I posted about it on the blog, I'll get motivated to wash them? …Probably not. - - - - -
Now here's where you guys come in! Copy this list of questions and answer them down in the comments. I love reading your guys' answers! :) The Questions: 1. Mood: 2. If you could only wear one makeup product for the rest of the year, what would it be and why?
3. Are you going to any concerts anytime soon?

5. Something you really need to do but keep putting off?
Happy Sunday! Normally I would post this on Saturday, but I just decided to take a relaxing Saturday and not do any work, which meant not posting any blog posts. Today is kind of a lazy Sunday, just because it's so rainy out! I ventured out this weekend on a mini road trip and drove back today, and I ended up getting stuck on the highway because of the rain just pouring! Anyways, I'm back home all safe and cozy. :) I hope you guys all had a great week and a great weekend! Highlights this week include: Selfies, cats, and photography.
