My Week In Photos #46!

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!

Revlon Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow: Review & Swatch!

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. 

I found this at Ulta for $10.99. 

What do you guys think of the Revlon Highlighting palette? Tell me in the comments below! :)

Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso: Review & Swatch!

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! :)

Monday Questionnaire: April 14th, 2014

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! :)

My Week In Photos #45!

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.

Nail Of The Day: Essie Under The Twilight


 I'm back today with another NOTD post! I had to share another color from the Essie Resort collection because I'm obsessed with that collection right now. :) This is Under The Twilight. Even though this color looks navy, it's actually a smokey plum color. I'm sure you guys all know by now, that Essie is my favorite nail polish brands. The polishes are always so pigmented and last quite awhile on nails without chipping. I was really surprised at how pigmented this nail polish was! I felt like I could probably get away with just applying one coat of nail polish, but I went ahead and applied two coats like I normally do. And I of course use my Essie base and top coats with my Essie nail polishes. :) 


I found this nail polish at Ulta for $8.50. 

Have you guys tried any nail polishes from the 2014 Resort collection? Would you wear this one? Tell me in the comments! :)

Monday Questionnaire: April 7th, 2014

Happy Monday! :) This week is kind of a sad week for me. On Friday it will be one year since my dog passed away. I did a whole post talking about him. I can't believe it's going to be a year. But, I'm trying to stay positive this week and not think about the sad things. But, honestly it's really hard to do. 

Anyways, enough sad things for today! What did you guys do over the weekend? I didn't do too much. I honestly spent most of my weekend playing The Sims 2. I know, very nerdy. I was obsessed with the game when it first came out, and I got all of the expansion packs and stuff packs. And now I'm back to playing it. I did do some writing this week, and I found out that I possibly have a cavity. I'm doing a post on that over on Cats & Cappuccino later today. I know it sounds silly to do a post on a cavity, but it just makes me so mad that I have one! 

This weeks picture is of my favorite treat: Ben and Jerry's Half Baked. I'm supposed to be watching what I eat so I can fit into my Easter dress, but I've been kind of down lately, so I bought ice cream. I have this bad habit of eating my feelings. That's a habit that I'd really like to break asap! Anyways, I don't eat ice cream very often so I decided to treat myself to some. And Ben and Jerry's makes the best ice cream! 

And how are you guys doing on No Buy April? I'm doing pretty well! So far anyways… haha! 


1. Mood:

I'm kind of in-between moods right now. Kind of happy kind of sad. 

2. Donuts or cookies? 

Donuts! Specifically glazed donuts. They've always been a favorite of mine! 

3. Are you a light sleeper?

Nope! I can sleep through anything. I've slept through thunderstorms, cars driving by, people snoring… I remember one time I slept through a thunderstorm and woke up and the power was off and I got really confused because I didn't even know there was a storm! 

4. Current nail polish:

Essie - Under The Twilight. 

I don't have a NOTD post of this color yet, but I will soon! Anyways, it's a smokey plum from the 2014 Resort Collection. 

5. Do you like cooking?

I really like cooking. I love trying new recipes! I get a lot of different recipe ideas from Pinterest

6. Do you like to have your day planned out, or do you just do things randomly?

I love to have my day planned out. I don't like to not have a plan of the day. It's just a great way to keep myself organized and make sure I get everything done that I need to during the day. :) 

7. What's a hair product that you can't live without?

My Miracle 7 leave in mist! It's amazing! It detangles, protects color, helps split ends, and adds shine. It's a must have hair product for me!

8. Now that warmer weather is here (for most of us), do you enjoy planting flowers?

I love planting flowers! My grandma and I usually go a little crazy when we buy flowers and garden seeds haha. I hope at my future house I can continue having a bunch of flowers. :) 

9. What's your dream car? 

Black Range Rover with ivory interior. I've wanted a Range Rover for quite a long time! But I won't be getting one for quite a long time! 

10. Weekly goals:

-Workout (gotta get into that Easter dress!)
-Write more
