Sunshine, Yellows, & More News…

Hello all! Today was a beautiful sunny day here in Austin. These are my favorite kinds of days, and I can't wait until it's summer. The 80-degrees-one-day and 40-the-next weather of Texas is making me crazy. Last week I pulled out all of my summer clothes, and the next day the doors to my car … Continue reading Sunshine, Yellows, & More News…

BEAUTY STORAGE!

A few weeks ago, I decided to move away from cups and mugs to a real make up storage unit for my make up station. I found this beauty at the Container Store, and could not be happier.   I put coffee beans in the back three compartments to keep my brushes upright, and stacked … Continue reading BEAUTY STORAGE!

Love: MAC Lipsticks

I finally bought my first MAC lipsticks. For a total lipstick junkie, it was crazy that I had never even been in a MAC store. When Scott and I went, he was like, "You really haven't been in here before? This is so you." I knew exactly what shades I wanted to try on, and … Continue reading Love: MAC Lipsticks

New: Tarte Be MATTE-nificent Palette

There is a lesson I have learned the hard way in the last year. (And by lesson, I also kind of mean first world problem.) There have been three different eyeshadow palettes that I have fallen in love with and waited too long to order, and then the companies stopped selling them. The palettes, in … Continue reading New: Tarte Be MATTE-nificent Palette

CURLY HAIR!

I love having curly hair. But as of a week ago, I could only curl it with a straightener. And that is very bad for my hair- my FHI flat iron gets reaaally hot. I've had my eye on the Remington Pearl Curling Wand for a while now. This is how it looks (it comes … Continue reading CURLY HAIR!

Gargantuan Green Grape

This is probably the most controversial nail polish I own. I saw it at Target in Florida a few weeks ago, and I was like, cute and different green, you're coming home with me! It is a nice pale green color, like a pastel lime. I painted my nails and took a pic for instagram … Continue reading Gargantuan Green Grape

OPI Mania

There was about a week and a half here in Texas where our grocery store marked OPI nail polishes down from $8 to... 2 FOR 5! Ulta carries OPI nail polishes for $10, and that's pretty standard. So to get them for $5 each?? And our grocery store, the HEB, was carrying all of the … Continue reading OPI Mania

NYX Lipsticks!

Whoever names the NYX Round Case lipsticks has an awesome imagination. I own seven of these inexpensive, nice lipsticks, and love the names. The name Violet Ray evokes something futuristic and space age to me, and it's a metallic purple color that fits with that. Fire is a warm orange red, and Stella is a … Continue reading NYX Lipsticks!
