LOTD: I’m Back! :) (Late Summer Makeup)

Hi Lovelies! 😀

I deeply apologize for not blogging right when I got back. I’ve been reeeeally depressed since my trip. I miss all of my buddies a LOT. :-/ Since it was a camping trip at a college campus in Utah, I didn’t wear a speck of makeup. So that’s not touching makeup for a week and a half. I haven’t had any bursts of creativity, so today I’ll just be sharing a look I did before I left for my trip.

And no editing on my pictures this time. 😉

Hope you enjoy the look:

LOTD: Eye-Opening Summer Makeup! +Editing?

Hi Crazies! 😀

Before we start with today’s makeup look, I want to let you know that I am going out of town on Friday, and won’t be posting for a week. Hope you understand 🙂

Another thing: I have NEVER EVER edited any of my pictures! Some of you might not believe me, but ALL of the pictures you see on my blog have not been edited. At all. Ever. Now, I’ve been wanting to test out some editing on my pics for a while. And when my pictures didn’t turn out very well for this look, I saw that as a chance to test out Picmonkey, which is an awesome, high-quality, pro editing system. So let me know what you think! Do you like the editing? Pleeease let me know in the comments.

Heads up: to show you all the full-effect of the makeup, and to make the eye shadows pop, I edited my eye color to blue. Bronze is gorgeous on any eye color, really, but..I mean come on, who doesn’t wanna switch their eye color for fun? 😉

This makeup look is really perfect for Summer. It’s smokey, but wearable, and very eye opening. I curled the lashes a little more than I usually do, and added a bright shimmer color onto the inner corner, so the eyes are bright and open. What I love to do to open the eyes is to take a light shimmer eye shadow, and spray it with water so that the shimmer really shows. Then I put this color on the inner corner, and vwa lah! Eyes are opened up no matter how dark the other eye shadows are! Just a tip 😉

Now lets get on to these pictures!

Thank you for reading!

Have a beautiful day! 😀

My 14th Birthday!!! Birthday Makeup and What I got!

Hi Crazies! 😀

I hope you all had an awesome weekend! I did!

So, on Thursday, the 10th was my 14th birthday!! 😀 I went to dinner with my family, and got my Cell Phone at Verizon! (pictures coming).

And on Saturday the 12th was my B-day party with a bunch of my friends. We ate, swam, and watched a movie.

And here are all of the wonderful things I got from friends and family:

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 015

First of all I got something I’ve been wanting for quite some time: a Snuggie!! I got this from my Grandma.

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 016

Next, from one of my friends, I got a bunch of things from LUSH!!!!

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 017

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 018

The first product was the Catastrophe Cosmetics Fresh Face Mask:

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 019

This smells just really fresh and soothing. There isn’t a super distinct sent.

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 020

Next products is the Lush Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly.

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 021

This smells like cherries with a bit of coconut. And this has a really cool jello-y texture!

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 022

Next is the Bubblegum Lip Scrub!!! Something that I’ve been wanting forever! It smells just really sweet and like bubblegum! (and it’s a really bright pink shade).

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 023

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 024

This next thing is a star-shaped soap, and no joke I cannot describe the smell! But it does smell really nice.

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 025

This next thing is The Tea Tree Steamer. It smells like Tea Tree, and comes in this cute little paper bag.

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 026

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 027

So that’s all of the Lush stuff!

Another friend got me 2 things: this really pretty boho flower head band she made:

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 028

And a sparkly white-gold-silver-ish phone case, pictures coming later in post.

If you know me, you know I only wear scrunchies to tie up my hair, because they are more gentle than normal hair ties and don’t make a dent in your hair. I got 3 really cute ones from Forever 21 which my friend got for me.

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 029

I also got 3 gift cards to the movies, Sephora, and one of my other favorite places, Sweet XO!

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 030

My brother bought me these duo ‘mints’ that are watermelon flavored!

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 031

I also got these trendy hair ties by Sephora!

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 032

And here is my brand-new Samsung Galaxy S 4!!!!!!

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 033

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 034

And to finish this haul off, I got 3 phone cases:

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 035

Here is the makeup I wore on the day of my party. I used 2 waterproof products: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Painted Purple and Great Lash Waterproof Mascara in Dark Brown.

My 14th Birthday Haul, and Jer and me vids! 003

There ya go! 😀

I had so much fun on my birthday, and I am super excited about all of my awesome gifts!

Thanks for reading everybody!

The Best Healthy, Energizing, and Yummy Breakfast: Eggs N’ Stuff

Hey loves! 😀

I have something for you today that I’ve never done before! A FOOD post!!! 

What do think about this idea? Yay or nay?

I have a tutorial on how to make one of my favorite breakfasts. It tastes amazing, and gives you all of the energy you need for the day. You can also add any of your fave ingredients to it, the recipe is very flexible.

Wanna learn how to make this? (aka best healthy breakfast ever)

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 071

Then keep on reading!

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 059

Start off with a bowl, a mixing tool, and how ever many eggs you want. (fun fact, eggs last REALLY long in your belly. I once had a few eggs for breakfast at 8:30am, and wasn’t hungry at ALL until 2:00pm)!

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 060

I like scrambled eggs the best, so that’s why I mixed them first! 🙂

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 061

Let there be FIRE!

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 062

Prep your pan with some butta

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 063

and go ahead and pour the eggs onto the pan.

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 064

While the eggs are cooking a bit, I like to spend the time by cutting up my ingredients.

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 065

I started with my tomatoes. *yummy!

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 066

Once the eggs look a little solid-er, flip ’em around a bit…

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 067

Then add your tomatoes, and I added some cheese, my favorite with eggs!

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 068

Then I just added some spinach that I tore apart with my ole fingers, (clean of course), and added it to the eggs n stuff.

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 069

Then to add some more flavor, I put in some pepper, and salt.

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 070

And breakfast wouldn’t be breakfast without BACON!! So I made some bacon, and ripped it apart, and then added it! :d mmmm

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 072

And there ya go! You can also see that I have some tea making itself over there. 🙂

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 073

And then I let Pouncey, my puppy clean the plate! ^-^

me singing, sts vids, and Elf giveawau haul! 075

Sooo…what do you think? Food posts every once in a while?

Hope you enjoyed!

All I did for makeup was: Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara in Dark Brown, and NYX Girl’s Lipgloss in True Red.

That makeup and hair was for a party on the 3rd of July.

This makeup was for seeing a firework show on the actual 4th with my BFF:

I wore a blue cream eyeliner topped with a blue matte eye shadow both from Sephora. And for the lips, I applied my favorite lip gloss: Mentha Lip Tint in Violet Mint.

(and I did the same hair style again)

The Color Workshop Review: Makeup and Nails! (Including LOTD)

Hi Crazies!

How was your weekend? I hope it was awesome! 😀

Recently, I got contacted by Markwins Beauty, a beauty site that houses different makeup brands. One of my all-time favorite brands is from Markwin’s, called The Color Workshop. If you have been a blog follower for a while here, then you know that I use TCW all the time, and love their products. I’ve done too many looks and stuff using their products to put links in this post, so instead, is you’d like to see TCW reviews and looks, search ‘The Color Workshop’ in the search box on your right. 🙂

So, they asked if they could send me some of the upcoming products from TCW, and I was all ‘heck ya!’ Who doesn’t want free makeup from one of their favorite companies?!!? 😉

Before I get to the review, let me show you the makeup look I did using some of the new TCW products I received:

The Nail Polishes: I really really love the colors of the polishes. That is a huge reason why I love TCW, is because they have some really unique and fun colors. I love the glittery ones, and there are some great Summery shades in the selection as well. And can I just say, I obsessed with both packaging forms? The slick, modern design of the first ones, and the short, squared-off shape of the other 2 are both really nice! The formulas are smooth, opaque, and I REALLY love the brush. It picks up the perfect amount of nail polish, and doesn’t drip. The only thing is that since the polishes are in fairly small bottles, the polishes will run out quickly. But then again, TCW has really low prices, so buying another bottle won’t be a problem!

The Shimmering Eyeliners: I think that the 3 Shimmering Eyeliners are so fun! They are basically glitter eyeliners with more body to them. I think that these would be perfect to add a pop of color into an neutral or everyday eye makeup look. I love the packaging, vey slick, and the formula is smooth and not patchy at all.

The Purple Cream Eyeliner: When I swatched this pencil liner on my hand, barely any color came on. But I’ve learned to never judge a products by the hand swatch. And if you know me, you know that I love to make any seemingly poor product work well. So, I tried the liner as a line on my upper lash line, and only a purple shadow came on. Ok…then I tried the pencil all over my lid. It created an AWESOME purple shadow, and using this pencil is now in my everyday makeup routine! 😀 Who knew? I like to just take the pencil all over my lid, blend a bit with my finger, and then I’ve got a gorgeous purple shadow. It’s a very natural look, and the great thing is that the purple makes my eye pop. So lesson learned: don’t give up on a product too soon! 😀

The Mascara: This mascara is awesome! It created really nice, long, no-clump lashes, and the best thing about it is that it’s SUPER black. The only thing is that it’s a fairly small tube…

The Eye Shadow Duos: These are such cool eye shadows! Each one is a unique shade! These eye shadows didn’t swatch very pigmented on my hands, but on the eyes they are flawless, colorful and smooth. I really like the first one there with the shimmer white and the cool-toned purple.

(this picture does not show the pigmentation at all)!! 0_0

The Blush: Oh. My. Gosh. This blush is the most pigmented beauty product I have ever tried IN MY LIFE. And that’s saying something! I really can’t say in words how buttery and pigmented this blush is. The color is gorgeous, just make sure to really shake the blush brush before you apply this baby! I also LOVE the little print on the blush, reminds me of a MAC print. 😀

The Lip Glosses: These lip glosses are really creamy, and pigmented. The colors are the same, but one is satin gloss, one is glitter. The satin one is gorgeous, and I used it by itself in the makeup look above. The glitter one I don’t like as much. It’s comes on nice, and wears really pretty, but when you wipe it off, it leaves glitter. :/

The Liquid Eyeliners: These 2 liners are from the #flashmob collection, which I LOVE! 😀 These liners have some sparkle to them, and I love the colors; they remind me of cotton candy 🙂 And the packaging is very cute and girly. The formula is very smooth, and nice as well.

Moving vlogs, and TCW Anti-Haul, with 2 makeup looks! 053

The Glitters: These glitters are awesome! I love the colors and the type. The packaging is a leettle cheap feeling, but other than that these are great! (it’s less about the packaging and more about the product in my opinion).

The Fold-Out Eye Shadow Palette: This thing is the coolest! I love the fold out type, it’s very convenient for travel and to stick in your bag. The colors are fun, and bright, and I LOVE them. The eye shadows are again, such unique colors! Which is awesome! 😀 All of them are pigmented, and smooth and gorgeous. My favorite shades? The darker green shade is the most pigmented int he palette! My other fave is the metallic blue shade, it’s suuuper smooth!

Over-all, I highly recommend TCW for all of those makeup and nail junkies who want the coolest, most unique and high-quality colors out there! 😀
