A Beauty Haul ;)

Some of the stuff I've collected recently...
Some of it I've used, some still new and shiny :p

The Maybelline lipstick...I'm in love with ! It's soooo soft and stays on forever.
It's their new Super Stay 14 hr Lipstick in Beige ForGood

The Garneir Fructis Style Hi-Rise Lift Root Booster is really good, just spray on damp hair (the roots, of course :p) and finger through or brush through, whatever. It gives some decent volume that lasted all night.

And the Curl Shaping Spray Gel, kept my hair curly and soft.

AXE Body Spray for Women, smells like flowers :)

Maybelline eye shadow in Designer Chocolates, really pretty colors that blend well.

Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Jewel Overcoat was nice, but not really my style. Swatches here.

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Peach Satin, I wore it at night and couldn't really tell anything was there...but during the day it should be good :)

Maybelline Color Tattoo eye shadow in Pomegranate Punk is gorgeous and blended really well. I used it with Bad to the Bronze as the base for Designer Chocolates :)

The rest I haven't used yet...but I plan to very soon :)


Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Jewel Overcoat : Multi-Faceted

This looked so promising in the bottle, but I guess it's not for me :(
I only did one nail so sorry for the silly pictures, but you can decide if this is up your ally at all.
I did different amount of coats on top of 2 coats of Orly's Stone Cold

I'm pretty sure all you glitter lovers will eat this up :)
What would you use this over top of ???

Color Club : Get Your Lem-On

I don't remember if this was 5 or 6 coats, but hey I had the time so why not ?

Club Club Get Your Lem-On

I had to wait until the next day to get some sun for the outside pictures, so sorry for the picking on them...I'm a picker...

But this polish is lovely and smells somewhere between fruit loops and lemon pledge :)

Creepy Feet : Cherry Bomb

I knew this polish would come back to haunt me :p
I love it so much <3

Orly Cherry Bomb
2 coats

Because it's so beautiful, it's hard to photograph, so I apologize for the shotty pictures :s


StarBucks for Broke Girls :p

This is something I've never blogged about before but since I think this is a great idea I want to share it with you ! 
I am a caffeine addict and I LOVE drinking blended coffee drinks. However, the cost of gas is going way up not to mention the drinks are expensive enough. 5 dollar coffee is ridiculous ! But soooo good, I know.
So I saw a commercial for International Delights Iced Coffee. It's already prepared, you just pour it over ice. Awesome !
I got some and blended it with ice, it was perfect ! So here is what I do...

What you need :
A blender
International Delights Iced Coffee
Coffee Creamer for flavor if desired

Put 4 large ice cubes in the blender, and shake in any flavoring you wanted, you don't need a lot.
Then fill the cup with the iced coffee until its just a little above the ice cubes.

(Leave it at the ice cubes level if you want a more, in this case, caramel, flavor than coffee.)

Now put the lid on and blend until the ice is smooth.
Easy, right ?

Caramel Frappuccino !!!

Now the best part about this ?
You have a drink that tastes almost identical to the 3-4 dollar version for next to nothing, but you cut the calories as well !

150 calories in a cup, and unless your making quite a large serving, you don't need a whole cup of this :D

P.S. The iced coffee is awesome by itself too :)

So as you can tell I'm pretty excited about this stuff ! 
If you try it, let me know if you liked it or if you re worked the recipe or created your own !!!


Obnoxiously Sparkly

This was just a random idea and as it turns out, I'm not a huge fan...
I wanted bright, sparkly nails, not this....
1 coat of Orly Flirty
3 coats of Color Club Candy Cane

It wasn't ugly, but it was sooo thick !
You know how if you're craving neons nothing seems good enough ? I think that was the problem here :p

China Glaze : Riveting

I never read the Hunger Games, the movie comes out tomorrow tho...but I don't like the cinema so I will remain clueless until Netflix or Family Video get a hold of it :p
I do like their polishes though !!!

China Glaze Riveting
2 coats 

Now this polish is not as coral as my pictures make it out to be. For a more color accurate description, picture glass flecked orange juice, not from a bottle, but from a freshly squeezed orange because this color is ORANGE ! :)
