MAC Alluring Aquatics mini-Haul and Review

Hey world! Trying to really get into blogging. In order to do that, I have to talk about things I’m passionate about. So, makeup it is today! I recently purchased from the newest collection on MAC counters. It’s selling out fast. Which is why I only purchased four items. image But the four items I did get my hands on are LIIIIFE! Wait ’til you see! Even the packaging is really cute. There are 3D water droplets on some of the packaging. If you’re a makeup lover like me, who occasionally buys products just because they have pretty packaging, you’ll want to go pick these up! 1.  “Silver Sun” Extra Dimension Eye Shadow, $19.50 image This shadow is the prettiest olive green shade, like ever. Great for us brown eyed gals. MUA description: “mid-tone dirty sea foam green.” Layman’s terms: It’s a yellowish green with a golden, frosted sheen to it. Pretty! Swatches: image image 2. “Black Swan” Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner, $17.50 image This type of eyeliner is my friend. It goes on smoothly, and has lots of color so you don’t have to scrape your eye up trying to do a smoky waterline. #cant MUA description: Black with pearl Layman’s terms: Black with a touch of silver shimmer Swatches: image image 3.  “Water Deities” Tinted Lipglass, $16.50 image I’ve been searching for nice gloss to go with the bronzed up face I plan on sporting this summer. I think I’ve found it! MUA description: Light bronzy pink. Layman’s terms: It’s a light bronzed-brown with champagne shimmer. Medium coverage Swatches: image image 4. “Modern Lure” Tinted Lipglass,  $16.50 image I have really done a dark lip in a while, but I’m definitely a fan. This new shade is the perfect deep purple red… it has shimmer! MUA description: deep violet with pink pearl. Laymans Terms: It’s a cool-toned, medium-dark berry-red with pink shimmer Swatches: image image All products can be ordered from MAC cosmetics website.   post divider image           Just thought I’d share my recent purchase with you. I’m in love! You might be too 💋. image (54)

Friday Features!

Instagram is addictive! I can spend hours (don’t judge me!) flicking through cool makeup and artsy pictures on IG! I figured Friday is a good day to share my findings ;)

❤️Happy Friday loves! 💋

Guess who’s bizzack!

I haven’t written a blog post in what seems like years. And I have finally figured out why! I was stuck! In transition. Scatter brained. I had a lot on my plate, so the furthest thing from my mind was a blog post. *rolls eyes*

I’m back with a new attitude! I think I have something to share with the world. Whether it be a makeup tutorial; something funny one of my little people did, or just a pretty picture of… anything. I can’t say all that I have up my sleeve, so be prepared for just about anything! lol

The Look for Less: MINTY COOL

Pastels are a go-to for the lady at even given time of the year, however, designers have taken to splashing mint green on the runway for Spring 2012

{I heart the floaty and structural juxtaposition of this look}
Everyone doesn’t make a million bucks, so us gals on a budget need to know how to get the look. Here is my round up of the minty green you will see plenty of fashionable gals wearing:
Left hand side is the high-end list
Right hand side is the low budget list
  1. Missoni cap sleeve dress, $1,180

Recently went to the zoo and this is the easy, breezy ensemble I wore:

J. Crew shirt
French Connection pleated khaki pants
Aldo military green loafers
Thrifted studded purse
H&M straw fedora hat
Random wooden and cheetah print bangles {in honor of the furry felines}

Just sharing my look ;-)

you are my sunshine♬

My birthday was this past Thursday, which really should’be been a NATIONAL HOLIDAY!

(although it wasn’t) I decided to act like it!

I didn’t do any work, no domestic duties – for a mom, that’s major…

I shopped all day long. And I loved it!

I’ve found that when you shop, especially when you are figure challenged like myself, you should always plan to try things on.

So, I try to wear things that are easy to get in and out of.

like:

 

 

leggings and comfy boots {loosely tied}

It was overcast and brrrr-cold, however I grabbed my own sunshine before I walked out my door.

 

my own contentment brightened my day, and the scarf helped a little too :-)
