Nail Of The Day: Essie Cocktails And Coconuts

Today I thought I would do a nail of the day post for you all! This is Essie's Cocktails and Coconuts. It's a super pretty neutral color, that is great for summer! The nail polish also has a hint of shimmer, that I mostly see in the bottle and not really on my nails. In this picture I have two coats of polish on my nails. 


I got this nail polish at Ulta for $8. 

What are you currently wearing on your nails? Let me know in the comments below! :)

Monday Questionnaire: August 17th, 2014

Happy Monday! :) I'm so excited for today because I finally get to tell you guys about my new secret project! I am now selling stuff for you to buy! I opened a shop on Zazzle. If you guys don't know about Zazzle, it's a website where you can put your own touch on products that they provide for you. It's completely free to design products, and you can make money from selling stuff too! I know this sounds like a sponsored post, but it's not! I just came across this website looking for chevron products one night, and I thought it was really neat. So this is my shop, coffeecatdesigns. I don't have a whole bunch in my shop right now, but I'm working on getting more products designed soon! I hope you guys find something you like! :) 

So that's my exciting announcement! This is just something that I think I'll really like doing. I didn't do too much this weekend. I had to run a couple of errands (blahhhh) and then I had to go to Starbucks because I would go everyday if I could. I also started apartment hunting. I'm not moving anytime soon, but I thought I'd just look around and see what is available around me. I don't even know if I want to stay in my current town, but I have some ideas at least. Then, I made the mistake of looking at my local shelters Facebook page and I found a cat I really love! I want to adopt him so bad, but I don't think my parents will let me. :( So that's a bummer. 

Anyways that was my weekend! Not a lot happened, but that's okay. :) This weeks picture is a picture of my face of the day from the other day. I'm loving my Maybelline The Nudes palette! 



1. Favorite red lipstick? 

I love my NYX Soft Matte lip cream in Amsterdam. It applies like a lipgloss but wears like a lipstick. And it lasts forever on my lips! 

2. What is your dream proposal like? 

We'd be in Paris, France in front of the Eiffel Tower and that's when he'd propose. It's just such a perfect proposal. There's a good chance that I won't get engaged in front of the Eiffel Tower, but you know. I also think it would be cute if a guy proposed in my dream city San Francisco, CA. Random side note, I've never actually been to San Francisco, but I know I'd love it there. 

3. If you could own an animal that you'd normally see on a farm, what would you own and why? 

I don't know if you'd call these farm animals, but I'd love to own an alpaca. I think they are the cutest! And they're so fluffy and I just love them. I need to convince my grandparents to get one (or two) for their farm… 


Super adorable alpaca and cats! My two favorite animals in one picture! 



4. Current nail polish: 

Essie Mint Candy Apple 

5. Have you ever gotten lost while driving? 

There are actually quite a few times I've gotten lost while driving. I'm also not that great with directions. It's like thank goodness for my GPS! Also, have you guys ever got lost in a housing development area? I have. It just seems like when you're in one, you just go around and around in a circle. I don't know how people live in those areas because I know I'd get lost finding my own house!

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 #63!

Happy Saturday! :) Today I thought I'd finally be able to release my new project I'm working on, but it doesn't seem like that's going to happen today due to some technical issues. :( I'm so bummed! Once everything gets sorted out I'll tell you all about it. I'm hoping by Monday everything should be good, but we'll just have to see what happens by then. :) Today is a pretty gloomy Saturday. It's rainy and just nasty out. I don't really have anything planned for the weekend, probably just working on my project some more. I just can't wait until I can tell you guys my project! I'm hoping the technical issues get worked out soon! :) Okay, I'm just rambling so I'm going to go now.

Monday Questionnaire: August 11th, 2014

Happy Monday! Today is such a gloomy Monday because it's cloudy and that is not making it easy to wake up this morning. But I'm drinking my coffee so I'll be awake soon! :) I hope you all had a great weekend! Saturday I had to run errands, which was not fun. It would've been funner if these were fun errands, but it was grocery shopping errands. And I don't know why, but I hate grocery shopping. Then on Sunday, I ended up reorganizing my room. Eventually I'm going to be painting it again, and I've already picked out a nice neutral color. I'm kind of over the blue walls. Anyways, I ended up just picking up a few things in my room that needed to be picked up. 

Also, I saw on Twitter that there is going to be a Naked Basics 2 palette from Urban Decay! I'm so excited! I literally screamed when I saw the tweet haha. And since I have all the Naked palettes, obviously I'll have to buy this one when it comes out. ;) 

This weeks picture is from Saturday. Since I had to go out and run errands, I decided to stop by one of my favorite places aka Starbucks and get a frappuccino. I've never seen my name spelled like this, so I just had to share it with you guys.  


1. Pencil, liquid, or gel/cream eyeliner? 

Cream eyeliner all the way! I love my ELF cream eyeliner. It's $3 and amazing quality. I have recently tried the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On eyeliner pencil in Zero. I've always had issues with pencil eyeliners in the past, but this one applies nicely. I think I'll stick to cream eyeliner though. 

….And liquid eyeliner is just not an option. That's something I don't think I'll ever master using.

2. What is a song that you're playing nonstop lately?

Cool Kids by Echosmith. 

It's my new favorite song, and I saw them sing it at Warped Tour which was super exciting!

3. Have you started bringing any fall makeup trends into your makeup routine yet? 

The only fall makeup trend I've been wearing is smokey/bronze eyeshadow. But let's be real….I wear those shadows year round. ;) 

4. What do you have planned for today? 

Well, after I post this I'm going to go workout. Then probably start filming videos for the week and take pictures for my blog posts this week. :) 

5. Any new makeup releases you can't wait to get your hands on? 

MAC's fall collection. I saw some of the products in a blog post (can't remember where) and I love all the products! And of course the Naked Basics 2 palette from Urban Decay.

My Week In Photos #62!

Happy Saturday! I'm excited that it's the weekend, even though I don't have any plans for the weekend. But that's okay! :) What do you guys have planned? Tell me in the comments! 
Last night, I posted a new post to my lifestyle blog Cats & Cappuccino. I'm going to start posting more on there. Don't worry, I'll still be posting here! But, I just want to start working on my lifestyle blog some more. So yeah, I think that's it for today. Literally nothing happened last week, except for me getting my hip out of place. And then I don't have anything planned for the weekend, so there's just not anything to write about this morning!

Maybelline The Nudes Palette: Review & Swatches!

I'm so excited to be reviewing the Maybelline The Nudes palette today! You guys all know that Maybelline is my favorite drugstore brand, so when I found out they came out with an eyeshadow palette that was all neutral eyeshadows, I knew I had to buy it! And of course because I'm in the Midwest, it took FOREVER for this palette to finally reach my town. I finally got my hands on it! :) In my opinion, this palette is like the Naked palette of the drugstore. I really like it! 


The packaging is really nice. This palette isn't too thick, so it'll fit easily in your makeup collection. If you're running out of room in your collection like someone I know (totally not talking about myself here), it won't take up too much space. 

On the back of the palette it shows all the different quads, trios, and duos that are in this palette. 


This palette has a great selection of shimmer and matte eyeshadows. I feel like they are all nicely pigmented and blend well. I also think this palette has a great selection of colors. There are so many different looks you can create with this palette, and get ready because I'm going to be doing a bunch of tutorials with this palette very soon! :) 


Now here's swatches of the eyeshadows! First picture is the top row, and second picture is the bottom row. 



I got this palette at Target for $9.99. 

What do you guys think of this palette? Have you bought it yet? Let me know in the comments! :)

Monday Questionnaire: August 4th, 2014

Good morning and happy Monday! I can't believe it's August 4th already which means my dad's birthday is 2 days away! And that also means that my Uncle's birthday is 2 days away. Have I ever told you guys that my dad is a twin? I honestly have NO idea what I'm going to get my dad for his birthday. I told you all the story of how he was last Christmas, when he just couldn't decide what he wanted. Which makes it really difficult for people like me who enjoy buying gifts! Hopefully I'll find something for him haha. Anyways, I'm still burnt to a crisp. Actually my sunburn isn't quite THAT bad anymore, but it still hurts like heck! I'm hoping I get a nice tan when it's all healed up. :) 
After I finish this post I'm off to work out! I kind of took a break from working out and then I was stressed which led me to eating a lot of chocolate, but now things are better and I'm getting serious again! I don't really have a goal weight anymore, I used to think I wanted to be a certain number, but now I'm to the point where I just want to be toned. No more flab! I also don't have a set date or time for when I want to be toned. I think it can be kind of stressful if you're like "I'm going to toned by October!" Getting fit takes time, and I don't want to stress over getting there. So that's my plan! Also, I've started walking again. I'm doing 3 miles everyday! I prefer to walk outside, but if it's too hot or humid, I can go walk at the gym for $1. 
I'm hoping this week I can get back to filming videos and posting. I had a busy week last week (Warped Tour!) and so I didn't get to work on my blog or channel. Plus my darn sunburn was literally draining my energy and I didn't want to do anything Friday. 

Okay, I'm getting to that point in my post where I start rambling so it's time to move to this weeks picture! 

This weeks picture is a picture I took Saturday on the walking trail! The trail I walk on is really pretty and it has a lot of trees, which means you can walk in the shade for most of the trail. Which really makes a difference as I found out yesterday. I had to walk in the afternoon, and it was just miserable in the sunny spots! 


1. Have you ever been on TV or know someone who has? 

Nope and nope! 

2. What's something you recently asked a makeup artist or sales associate about? 

Well about a month (or so) ago, I went to Sephora looking for a new brow product. I had to explain to the sales associate that I had always filled in my eyebrows with eyeshadow and wanted to try something new. I also had to explain that I didn't want an eyebrow pencil for the fear of my eyebrows looking like I drew them on. No thank you! So she suggested the Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel and I really like it! She filled in one eyebrow for me, and then I filled in the other and it was really easy to use! I got it in the shade Chocolate, which is darker than I would normally go for, but I really like it! 

3. What are you into makeup-wise right now? 

Hmm…Well let me list a few things!

-I'm loving the dewy face look for summer. I use my NARS Sheer Glow foundation to achieve this. And hardly any setting powder, except where I really need it like under my eyes and on my nose. 

-Brightening up under my eyes. It seems like my dark circles are getting worse lately, so I really need to brighten up the under eye area. I use my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer in the shade Brightener Illuminator. This really brightens up those dark circles. I've also been using this to highlight my face. 

-I've also really been into simple eye makeup looks lately. Makeup looks that only require me to use 2 or 3 eyeshadows.

…Okay, sometimes I'll use 4. ;) 

-And lastly, bright lips! You guys know I love wearing bright lipstick in the summer. Hot pinks and corals are where it's at this summer!

4. Current nail polish: 


5. How do you get motivated to work out? 

Okay, you are seriously asking the wrong person this question! LOL. 

I guess something that helps motivate me, is to listen to music that pumps you up to workout. A lot of times I'll listen to dubstep music while working out. It keeps me motivated. Obviously dubstep music isn't going to be for everyone, so I think as long as you have some kind of fast music or songs that you really like, you should be good! :)
