Sunday Haul and a Bright Mani!!

When I held my first giveaway one of the ways to enter was you comment on what you would like to see on my blog. One of the common things mentioned was "Haul Posts" so here is my most recent one. I will be trying to post them more regularly. This is the haul I ended up with when I was out on Sunday :) Enjoy!!!

I stopped at the mall for a bit since I hadn't been there in awhile and one of the stores I made sure to go into was Icing!! I found 3 polishes on clearance and the other 2 were BOGO 1/2 so this is what I bought:
 LtoR: Mr. Right Now, Lipstick and Lovers, Tiger's Blood, Rock Star From Mars, and Absinthe
"Lipstick and Lovers" looks kinda like Butter London "Disco Biscuit" I will have to do a comparison soon :)

My next stop was Target, where I picked up these pretties:
LtoR: O.P.I - Louvre Me Louvre Me Not, Revlon Colorstay - Bonsai, Pixi - Metallic Mermaid, and Essie - Pink-A-Boo
 You can't tell in the picture but the Essie polish is packed with pink, purple, blue, and some more colors glass flecks. It is so pretty and I'm glad I picked it up to look at it otherwise I would have missed out on the beauty!

At Big Lots I found a 3 pack of Color Mates for $2!!! and I got two more Material Girl polishes at the mall
LtoR: Color Mates - Paparazzi, Glitter Glam, and Look At Me!, Material Girl - Phantom and Midnight 

I love all of the polishes I picked up. The hardest part was deciding which one to wear first lol. I decided to pick 2 colors and I went with "Mr. Right Now" & "Absinthe" this is what I ended up with:
 I used 2 coats of each color. and on top of "Absinthe" I did one coat of
Essie - "Carnival" for a little sparkle :)
and please forgive my pinkie nub :( I got it caught on my car door and it broke off. I tried to save it, but my nail just wasn't having it lol.

That's all for today. Thank you for reading and don't forget to follow me if you haven't already. Also don't forget to check out my blog sale :) I'm always adding stuff as I find it!!! Have a great day!

Love VoxBox Review!

A few weeks ago I was lucky and was chosen to receive the Love VoxBox from Influenster. This was my first time getting a VoxBox so I had no clue what to expect. This is what I received :)

 This is what I saw when I opened the box!

Sorry about the blurry pic, I didn't realize how bad it was until I loaded it lol, but these are all the items I received for review. They also included a little sheet that told you about the items and their retail value.

Here are some better pictures :)

 I haven't used this yet but I plan on doing to soon. I've used the Venus razors before but not an Olay one.

 I'm not a tea drinker so I gave them to a friend who is. She said she would let me know who they were. She did smell them all lol and said them smelt really good.... so I guess that's good lol
 I've seen a lot of commercials about Truvia and I plan on trying it, but I just haven't found a use for it yet lol
 MMMMMMMM....... Chocolate.... Need I say anymore? I was a bit afraid to open it though because I read another review and the girls chocolate was horribly melted and deformed, so
I was happy to see (and taste) that mine was just fine. It's a nice treat for me, eating it as I type this :), since I try to not but a lot of candy. So I was happy to see this in my box lol.
 Not sure if I was suppose to get 2 coupons of not... but I won't complain :)
 I was excited for this item too. I've been wanting to try out some nail strip since they seem to be the next big thing in the nail world. I decided to give them a try right away....

 They look pretty cool.... but.... I really didn't like them. I got all kinds of creases in them. They didn't want to go on flat. I tried to ignore the creases but I just couldn't. They were driving me nuts and didn't last very long :(

I pretty much took them off right after I took these pictures. Maybe I put them on wrong, I don't know. I have a really hard time figuring out what size to use on which nail and no matter how many times I tried to re-lay the stickers they never wanted to go flat. So on the up side I saved some money since I don't have to buy these to try them out. I think I'll just stick to my good ol' bottles of polish. Lord knows I have plenty lol.

Well that's it for today. Did you receive a VoxBox? Where were your thoughts on the items?

Thank you so much for reading and don't forget to check out my Blog Sale :) Please leave any questions or comments below.

Here's a puppy shot for the road :)
It's Stitch.. a.k.a. Mr. Fluffy Paws lol and yes he is chewing on his own paw lol

Brazen Cosmetics!!!

I recently bought some Brazen eye shadows. I love them all. The formula is great and the colors are beautiful. I have a few colors to show you today:)

All colors are swatched dry (left) and over primer (right)
  I love "Karma" Its such a bright vibrant purple. It stands out and is just all around awesome. "Yours Always" makes a great hi-light color.
All of these are a lot sparkly in person. Photos don't do any of these justice.

Next is Brazen's St. Patty's Day Trio collection. It comes in two sizes, Mini and Full-Size (5g).
The mini will be $11.99 & the 5g will be $16.99. the 5g comes with a green glitter gloss too, called Kiss Me, I'm Irish. And both sized sets come wrapped in a green organza bag w/a little St. Pat's button.

Since I'm a Brazen Beauty I was able to get it before it was on the site :) I got the mini trio. I love greens so this was a must have :)
" Charmed" is a light green with gold and orangeish sparks and a yellow/goldish duo chrome. Love it!!
 "Get Lucky"is a medium green also with golden and orangey sparks. Very Irish!
"Fortuitous" is the darkest green of the 3, almost black, but still green with a golden duo chrome and the same gold/orange sparks. It's different then any other color in my collection

I did use them all today and this is the final result :)

And this is my puppies watching their mama playing with her makeup lol

If you like any of these colors you should check out the Brazen store and get some for yourself!!!

If you have any questions of comments please leave them below. Do you plan on getting any of these colors?

As always thank you for reading and don't forget to enter my 100 Follower giveaway!!!

This will be a short post. I just wanted to show off my new haircut. I decided spur of the moment yesterday that I was going to go get it chopped. Not sure why, but I guess everyone needs a change now and then.

My hair use to be a bit shorter then mid-back length ... I will look later to see if I have any recent pictures of me before the cut (I'm not home right now lol)

I didn't have anything in mind really so I left it up to my stylist since she always does a good job.... Here is the final result!
Also the other day I decided to wear butter London's "Dosh"... I don't really care for it. I tried to spruce it up and make it more appealing to myself. I like the out come, but I don't think I'll be keeping "Dosh" All I could think of every time I looked at my nails was.... Zombies! That's not a bad thing, but not really what I want my nail to remind me of lol.

 Over "Dosh" I added a coat of Sinful Colors "Green Ocean" and OTD Norther Lights. I think it is so pretty, but I don't think this is worth keeping "Dosh" anyone want to swap for it lol

That's it for today. Thanks for reading and don't forget to enter my 100 Follower Giveaway!!!
