Love this. Was featured on the Stella Laguna Beach Instagram feed.
Lightened my hair last weekend! By the wonderful Jess Schmidt. Check out her blog at http://www.cosmojess.wordpress.com
I realize with fall, most people like to go dark, but I think I’m going to wait till closer late October or November.
Got my mini NYX haul in the mail-absolutely loving the mattifying spray. The red nail polish is great and a beautiful dark fall color. A deep red. The lip sticks were a little too off for my skin tone, but I didn’t want to return them cause I’m determined to find a way to make them work for something (Halloween, maybe?) The eyeshadows are great, but a little chalky. Maybe a primer would help.
I also thought it was adorable that all NYX products come in a black lace bag. Just a thing.
Finally bought my much-awaited Lorac PRO Palette. It’s amazing, and that is all. I also picked up some more NYX in the same trip, which was to Ulta, by the way..
These blushes are AMAZING. And the lipliner is gorgeous as an all-over lip color. I’ll do a blog just on lip colors sometime in the near future.
A classic Benefit product, that I finally really got into using this month-the Benefit Watt’s Up Highlighter Stick. It’s beautiful and a great alternative to bronzer for more pale skin.
Best powder of the month: Revlon Nearly Naked. Hands down. Buy it, it is all you will ever need. That and the Rimmel Stay Matte, but it’s just my opinion.
Speaking of Rimmel, the “best bang for your buck” product I have found is this “Just Let it Go” Eye Makeup Remover. I suggest using it with cotton balls.
And an on-going favorite- the Naked 2 Palette. Beautiful its own way. So beautiful.
I started my Service Learning for my Intro to PR class at ValleyPBS, and was instructed to read this children’s book so that I could know more about the premier of a new children’s show the station is releasing. Very cute, I might add.
Got to hang out with my best friend, which was pretty cool, since that rarely happens because we have the work lives of 40 year old CPAs.
Lastly, my cat is pregnant, which was obviously not something we intended, but now I am awaiting my time as a kitty grandmother, and in the meantime, Talilah has been renamed “Sack of Cats”. She has her own instagram, @talilahsparkles.
Hope you had a great September, comment below if you want me to check out your blog!
