August Ipsy Bag

Hi everyone!! 

So this month I received my Ipsy bag a little later then everyone, due to moving. I was so excited though because I already knew which products I was getting from my glam room. 

 My new favorite thing to do with products I already have or wont use, is to go on Ipsy's Facebook and go to their swap forum. There are a ton of girls on the forum that are looking to swap their products for ones you may have! It's great because if you end up getting something you do not want there is someone who wishes they got that product! I have done two swaps so far with two separate girls that were so sweet and went off without a problem!

This months "theme" was Glamor Academy!

In my bag I received:  

Urban Decay Revolution lipstick in "Anarchy"

Pixi Beauty Mascara

Michael Todd Jojoba Charcoal Gentle Exfoliating Facial Scrub

NYX Cream Blush

Pacifica Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream

I overall think this was a good month for my glam bag, however I will be swapping my mascara and the facial scrub. Only because I have really sensitive skin, and I don't love scrubs, and the mascara because I am not a fan of travel sized mascaras and large wands.

The Fault In Our Stars

 This is going to be my first ever book recommendation post!

 "The Fault In Our Stars" by John Green is a book that I just finished yesterday after spending my two days off from work reading it! I could not put it down, it was that good! I laughed so hard, and cried my eyes out. I cannot say enough great things about this book, I highly recommend and encourage anyone to read this book. I feel like I can't write a synopsis without spoiling everything..so go read it!! 

I really loved that John Green, being a man could literally grasp the characteristics of a teenage girl flawlessly.  I loved his writing style and I cannot wait to read more of his books. He just so happens to be my younger sisters favorite author and she owns a ton of his books.

I forgot how much I missed laying in bed reading a book all day! 

The next book I am going to read is Looking for Alaska! 

If anyone has any book recommendations please let me know!

What were my summer must haves?

Hi Everyone!!!

Since summer is coming to an end, I thought I would share what my summer must haves were this year!

Starting from left to right-

My bronzer from NYC - I love this powder bronzer, it is super inexpensive and gives me an over all glow which I really need to not look like a ghost!

Jergens Natural Glow - I have so many self tanning products its ridiculous, but I just can't help it. I am a pale white girl who only gets red and burnt in the sun, so I need something to help me achieve a somewhat bronze glow. This product is great, It has +firming and it can be used daily for a gradual glow! The smell isn't bad at all either compared to some others I have tried.

Maybelline Color Tattoo in "Barley Branded" - I love love love this cream shadow!! I use it as either a base for my other shadows which works as an amazing primer, because it stays on for 24 hours; or I will sometimes just use it on it's own! It is from the metal line and it is so pretty and bright!!

Victoria's Secret: PINK body splash - I like using body sprays in the summer for a light but fresh smell and this is very girly and sweet!

Sexy Hair Weather Proof Spray - I recieved this product in my July glam bag and I have used it everyday since! I have really thick hair that gets frizzy with any humidity so I spray this on my finished styled hair to keep it protected!

NYX Butter Gloss in "Eclair" - I love the butter glosses and this has been my absolute favorite!

Benefit Watts Up - When used on the bridge of your nose, around the arch of your eyebrows and the tops of your checks this product gives you amazing highlight! I use this everyday!

Covergirl Lashperfection Mascara - I cannot say how many times I have repurchaced this product, I think it will always be my favorite mascara!

Revlon Photo Ready BB Cream - This so far is my favorite BB cream that I have tried, It doesn't give my an oily face that some other BB creams can give off it really gives great coverage and helps my face stay matte all day along with all of the benefits of a BB cream.

Clean and Clear Morning Burst Gel - I received this product as a sample size and I am in love with it! I never thought of using a gel moisturizer but I like it so much better than a lotion, and it smells like cucumber melon!!

Covergirl Trio in "shimmering sands" - This trio is really popular in the beauty community and it truly does live up to the hype, it is an inexpensive drugstore product that has beautiful colors!

Sunglasses - My aviators from target for around 16.00 have been my favorite pair of sunglasses all summer!

Real Techniques - These two brushes are my favorite! I found them at Ulta for around 8-9 bucks each! They are so soft and really help your makeup go on without streaks!

Those are my summer beauty must haves!!

Would You Rather?

Hi Everyone!! I saw this tag on a few other beauty blogs and thought it would be really fun to do!!

Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?

Even though I cannot go a day without mascara I would have to say I would rather lose all of my mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses! I would just have to go out and buy more! ;)

Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

This one is tough for me because I could not imagine not having hair...however, I have super thick hair and I really think my hair would be soo damaged without a hair cut. I will go with chop off all of my hair...luckily my hair grows really fast!

Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?

I know this is going to sound crazy, but I really do not wear much blush! I am all about the bronzer and I have naturally rosy cheeks so I really don't like to add to them. If I had to choose though I would go with a pink cheek!

If you had $1000 to spend, Would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
New Clothes, hands down.


Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
Oh boy..... I cannot imagine either being really flattering. I guess I would choose using the eyeliner as a lipstick, they have pink eyeliners anyway!

Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
  Definitely Sephora! They have everything, MAC can get super expensive. 

Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?
I would say one lip color, I love doing my eye makeup and I really don't mind sticking with a favorite lip color! 

Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
I really had to think about this question! It gets as high as 106+ degrees here in summer and I could not imagine wearing winter clothes! I could survive with summer clothes in winter since I still wear cardigans and scarfs in the summer (I work in an air conditioned building).

                          Would you rather dark nails or bright nails all year round?

 I love my bright nails and paint them at least two times a week, bright nails for sure!

Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?

Give up my favorite lip product! I can't live without my Covergirl mascaras!

Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a pony tail or a messy bun?

I would say a pony tail, I feel like I could really make a pony tail look cute and sleek. 

Would your rather never being able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
Never use lipgloss! I would not give up my nail polish collection.

Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all? or sharpie them in everyday?

Oddly enough I have seen many girls with both "eyebrow looks" and it is not cute. I suppose I would have to sharpie them in haha!

 Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

This question is so tough, I love painting my nails but I guess I would have to live without it because I like wearing makeup even more.

I tag everyone to do this and let me know when you do so I can check out your answers!!!
