Lost Treats

Recently, while I was going through my make-up drawer I found some things I thought were lost forever! I found some Mac eyeshadows and one from The Balm. I also found my Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer. I already have a few bottle of the Urban Decay Primer Potion that I bought because I thought this was lost forever.

1. Mac eyeshadow in Mulch
2. Mac eyeshadow in Time & Space
3. Mac eyeshadow in Amber Lights
4. The Balm Overshadow The Sexpot Series in You Buy, I'll Fly

My Too Faced Shadow Insurance

From left to right: Mulch, Time & Space, Amber Lights, You Buy I'll Fly

I need to really start going through my make-up drawer more often! 
What do you think of the colors? I love shimmery golds and browns.

Holiday Goodies Pt. 2

I know in my last post I said my mom wouldn't let me have my other goodies, but she did let me take some pictures to show you! I'm not going to go too in depth with them since I can't open them and show you them fully. I thought all of these sets were priced great and you get a lot of bang for your buck! 

Do you have any of these sets or products? What do you think of them?


Hi all of you fabulous people! I just wanted to do a quick post to ask you to follow me on my Twitter :) I love tweeting new people. I use my Twitter to update you when I have new posts and ask you what kind of posts I should do next. I also follow back if that helps :) My Twitter account.

Some Early Holiday Goodies

So as everyone knows, yesterday was Black Friday! I went shopping at numerous different places and got some really awesome goodies that I can't wait to show you fabulous people, but my mom isn't letting me have them until Christmas :(. She is so wicked lol. She did let me choose 2 things to keep out though and this is what I choose:

 First up, is Benefit Her Name Was Glowla. I saw this Benefit set and I had to have it. Just the packaging alone made me crazy for it. Inside it comes with 5 eyeshadows, 1 blush, 1 lipgloss, 1 mascara, and 2 highlighters. I think it was a fantastic deal for all of that for only $36. The eyeshadows are so rich and velvety and the blush is an amazing shade of coral pink that goes with my skin tone perfectly. I haven't really had a chance to try it out, but I did swatch it and I loved it!

Next, I was in desperate need of a refill to my Moroccan Oil, so my mom graciously got the big bottle this time to keep me happy until I'll need another refill as I'm somewhat addicted to this stuff. I swear if you haven't already tried this you HAVE TO! It's such a life saver and it makes your hair feeling AMAZING.

That's all I can show you now. When Christmas comes around I'll be able to show you all of the other fabulous make-up sets I was able to get.

My Favorite Combination

This post I thought I would do it on my favorite jewelry combination. I love my big tacky costume jewelry, but I also like timeless looking pieces too. I love mixing my silvers with my golds, so thats what inspired me to wear my silver Tiffany bracelet with my gold Juicy Couture bracelet and I threw in my brides maid gift as well, a diamond tennis bracelet. I've gotten so many compliments while wearing this combination. What do you think about it?

What kind of jewelry do you like to wear? Do you like mixing golds and silvers?

Yesterday I finally went and had my nails done! Ive been putting it off but I had to go in and get some magic done to them lol.

I got black gel and on top of the black gel I had them put a coat of O.P.I's Rainbow Connection over it. I love this combo. I also got the same look on my toes too :)

What do you think of the combo?

Teeny Tiny Ulta Haul

This weekend when I went to get my roots touched up at my local Ulta, I picked up a few things.

First, I got O.P.I's Rainbow Connection from their Muppets Collection. I've been obsess with this color ever since it came out and my nail salon had it. (I actually didnt get this from Ulta, I got it from my nail salon because Ulta was sold out!)

Second, I got a refil on It's a 10. It's pink because it supports the Christina Applegate foundation for breast cancer. As you know my mom and I support breast cancer as much as we can.

Third, I got Lorac TANtalizer Baked Bronzer. I love my bronzes and this one is amazing. It gives you a light flush that looks natural not too shimmery or fake.

That's a for now ;) have you tried any of these things? How do you like them?


Getting Glassy

With the winter cold coming my eyes have been getting really dry so I thought I would give my peepers a little break from their contacts and switch to my glasses.

Yes these are my real prescription glasses. They are actually men's glasses because all of the women's glasses were too, ah what word can I use to describe them, tiny. I likene some big frames!

Do you wear glasses?

Day 26 & 27

Day 26 – What you think about your friends
Day 27 – Why are you doing this 30 day challenge

Day 26
I think my friends are pretty cool. I mean they are my friends right? I have to like them lol.

Day 27
I'm doing this challenge because Lifebeyondbase suggested I do it. I think it's been pretty fun! 

My Dislike for Nail Polish

I've never been really fond of painting my own nails mainly because I suck at it and I can never find the right color. I usually get them done with the gel so they last longer.

I was super bored this afternoon and I thought what the heck why not give nail polish another go. I did and this is how they turned out. I used Sparrow Me the Drama from the Pirates of the Carribean OPI collection.

I like the color just fine but I can never give myself a salon quality paint job.

Day 25

Day 25 – What I would find in your bag

The bag I'm using is my latest Dooney and Bourke I got about a month ago. I love it. It's huge and roomy and black and goes with everything.
Inside I don't have that much as you can tell. I'm always taking things out and putting things in, but this is what stays in there at any given time
1. My Ray Bans sunglasses. 
2. Phone charger (a MUST!)
3. Various lip balms and chap sticks (it's an addiction)
4. My pink ribbon pen
5. My iPhone
6. Wallet 
7. Brush (having tangled hair is my pet peeve. I absolutely cannot have tangles in my hair)
8. Silver emergency kit that has everything in it!
9. My flip video recorder
10. My iPod

What do you have in your bag??

Day 22, 23, & 24

Day 22 – What makes you different from everyone else
Day 23 – Something you crave for a lot
Day 24 – A letter to your parents

Day 22
I think what makes me different from everyone else is that I love to do things for people I love. I love making them happy. I like doing things for my mom and my boyfriend and seeing them smile. 

Day 23
I crave my mom's cooking ALL the time! Especially this one dish she makes. I call it meat and potatoes. Is ground beef with little chunks of potatoes with a side of shell pasta. It's soooooo incredibly delicious! I know it doesn't sound too good, but trust me, once you try it that's all you're going to want to eat forever!

Day 24
I love my parents dearly. I honestly don't think what I would do without them. I know it says to write a letter to them, but I don't think I want to.

P.S How cute is that???

Day 19, 20 & 21

Day 19 – Nicknames you have; why do you have them
Day 20 – Someone you see yourself marrying/being with in the future
Day 21 – A picture of something that makes you happy

Day 19
My Mom calls me pumpkin :) She says I'm her little pumpkin. She has been calling me that since I was born. My boyfriend calls me Danica, instead of Dana. I'm not too sure why he does that, but I don't mind it. And my family calls me Dana Beans. I don't know why they call me that either. They have been calling me that since I was little. 

Day 20
I love Chuck Bass. I know he is a fictional character, but a girl can dream can't she? :)

Day 21
I'm such a cat person! If I could I would have one right now, but I have no time for them and that would be selfish of me to get a cute fluffy kitten and not pay attention to it. 

Random Post!

So I got a request to do some swatches of my YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick. I love this lipstick. Its so velvety and smooth and looks good on just about anyone! I got this from Nordstrom for $34 in the color Sweet Honey.
Without flash

With flash

And on another completely irrelevant note, yesterday while I was cleaning out my bathroom I found all of these Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliners. I didn't realize how much I use them to have so many stubs left over! I usually use Bourbon and Zero. Those are my two favorite ones.

Getting Gifty

So my November Birch Box came in the mail yesterday and I was super excited! I love getting things in the mail. Maybe that's why I have so many magazine subscriptions. Well anywhoo I want to show you what I got! 

 The theme was Getting Gifty and here's what was in it:

1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Lifting Mascara
2. Befine Night Cream
3. Kerastase Elixir Ultime
4. Supersmile Professional Whitening Toothpaste
5. Alex and Isabelle Classic Hair Ties

Day 16, 17 & 18

Day 16 – Another picture of yourself

I may bite...

Day 17 – Someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why
I wouldn't switch my life for anything! Sure I'm not skinny or have a bazillion dollars or live in some fancy smancy house, but I have a lot of love and happiness. I have a family that loves me, a boyfriend whom I adore, and a roof over my head. Although, come to think about it I would like to switch lives with Lady Gaga. Those outfits, that make-up, those shoes! 

Day 18 – Plans/dreams/goals you have
I plan to become a housewife and live off of my husbands money and be on a T.V show. JUST KIDDING.  Or am I?? I actually have goals of graduating from college with a degree in Liberal Arts. I'm not too sure what I'm going to do with that degree, but it's nice to have something to fall back on to.

Make-Up Look

Since I have nothing to do, but wait for my mom to finish getting ready I thought I would do a make-up of the night photo. I haven't done one and I thought now would be a perfect opportunity. I don't look too great  today because I've been sick :( But here it is anyways :)

On my face I just used Laura Geller Spackle Tinted Under Make-Up Primer in Bronze ( I got this in my October Birch box). I didn't want to wear too much face make up since I am just going out for a few hours. I did use my YSL Touche Eclat on my nose and under my eyes though.  I used Loreal Voluminous False Lashes in Black and my YSL Rouge in Honey.

Day 14 – A picture of you and your family
Day 15 – Put your iPod on shuffle: First 10 songs that play

Day 13

Day 13 – A letter to someone who has hurt you recently

I like the idea of this post, I really do, and I would love to write a letter to someone that has hurt me recently, but I feel that it's a private matter. There is someone that I've recently let back into my life that has hurt me and has made me feel bad about myself, but I don't want to air out all of my dirty laundry. I love this person and I hope our relationship does get better with time. And no I'm not talking about an ex boyfriend or anything like that lol. 

What I have In My Make-Up Box

I don't have a make-up "bag, but rather a make-up "box". I just wanted to show you what I have in it. I'm not going to write too much about the stuff in there, but if you have any questions about anything just ask away :) Sorry if this post seems a little short, I have such a bad headache right now :(

Day 11 & 12

Day 11 – Another picture of you and your friends
Day 12 – How you found out about Blogger and why you made one

Day 11
Day 12
I found out about blogger by googling beauty blogs and lo and behold I decided I wanted to make my own because I wanted to share things with other girls like the other blogs I've read :)


What do you Think?
I'm wearing a cream shirt from American Eagle and some black skinny jeans from the Gap.
Oh and please ignore the messy room :)

October Favorites!

This is the first time I've done a month favorites! 
I know I'm a few days late, but better late than never right? :)
So these were some of the things that I've been using a lot this month and stuff that I love!

1) YSL Rouge Volupte in honey. I got this a while ago, but I never thought I would use it until one fateful evening. I tried it thinking what the hell! and volia! It looked amazing with my skin tone. And it was so velvety and smooth on my lips.

2) Maybelline Fit Me! Liquid foundation in color 220. I did a post on this and I can't stop raving about it. I swear this stuff makes my skin look and feel so much better than it's natural state! It's not heavy and caky, but rather smooth and airy. 

3) In this months Birch Box I got a Befine Food Skin Care Lip Serum. I've been using this like a drug! I'm so addicted to it. It makes my lips extra, super, duper soft and soooo kissable :)

4) I've been sick for the past few weeks and my skin has not been at it's top shape. It's been looking a little dull and parched looking. I got the Clean and Clear Morning Glow Moisturizer. I'm never looking back after using this. After just the first use my skin looked back to it's normal self and better.

5) For me Moroccan Oil is a savior for me! I don't know why I didn't use it earlier, but oh my gosh is you haven't tried this stuff you should do yourself the favor and get it! My hair has never felt so silkier and smoother than ever before. 

6) I use Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner like regular conditioner. I don't use regular conditioner anymore. I've had to buy at least 2 bottles a week to feed my habit! It makes my hair so soft, it keeps it so moisturized and smelling like coconuts! 

7) I'm never using another perfume again! I've found my match made in heaven with this one. Lovestruck by Vera Wang is the best thing smelling thing next to my mom's home cooking :)

8) And last is my iPhone. I've had it a few months already and I cannot live without it. I had an Android before and I didn't know what I was missing out on. It doesn't have Siri, but it's great just the same!

So there you have it! My October favorites :) What are you favorite things for the month?

Day 8, 9, 10

I'm mashing up three days into one post so it doesn't get so cumbersome on my page with different posts :)

Day 08 – Short term goals for this month and why
Day 09 – Something you’re proud of in the past few days
Day 10 – Songs you listen to when you are Happy, Sad, Bored, Hyped, Mad

Day 8- One short term goal I have this month is to actually bring up my grade in my math class. I really don't want to retake the class, but I just don't understand numbers. I much prefer reading a good book or taking a literature class. 

Day 9- Something that I'm proud of in the past few days is actually keeping my room clean. I know it's nothing really to be proud of, but it's such an accomplishment for me! 

Day 10- One song that I love at the moment is Pumped Up Kicks by Foster the People. I listen to that when I'm happy along with some Brittiney Spears and Lady Gaga. When I'm sad I have to turn to Adel. Her music is amazing. I wish I could sing like that. I actually don't really listen to music when I'm bored, how sad huh? Hyped? Don't listen to music when I'm really hoed either. Hmm to tell you the truth I only really listen to music in the car when I'm driving. 

And to leave off on a good note: 
My Moose Pillowpet :) 
He keeps all of the Spookies away at night.
