Dasani Drops - Cherry Pom
I don't like drinking water like some people. It's a struggle for me to CHUG half of my weight in ounces of water every day! Yes before you start judging, I know it's the healthy way to be but that doesn't mean I have to enjoy it. So I use these drops in my water and it tastes like I'm having something sweet and indulgent. (ok indulgent might be a little bit exaggerated but you get the point)
I'm a freelance makeup artist. I've been doing this for over 6 years now. So when I see people out in the street the expectation they have is that I have a full face of makeup. Let me clear the air NOW! I do not wear makeup daily. My mother taught me at a very young age that if I wore makeup everyday I would become so dependent on it that I wouldn't be able to look myself in the mirror in the morning, or go out the house and feel ok. I don't EVER want to feel like I don't look presentable just because my face is not beat to perfection. I read a few reviews on various BB Creams. (BB stands for Beauty Balm) but I have tried several products from Garnier and loved them so I bought this and love it!!!! It gives me coverage to even out my skin tone, moisturizes and provides my skin with additional vitamins and nutrients it needs. And honey I'm 2yrs past 30 so it's VITAL I start paying attention to these things.
MAC Cosmetics - "Up the Amp"
Totally digging this color for the Fall. It's a great transitional color from very bright pinks (like Candy Yum Yum) to more of a muted pink/plum blend.
Moroccan Smooth Perfection Blow Out Cream - Organix
I straighten/blow out/doobie whatever you want to call it my curly tresses. I used to spend quite a bit of money per month at my handy local Dominican salon totaling over $200 per month after you include the tip, deep conditioners, trims etc. While that's not a lot of money when your hair looks amazing it's never a 2hr thing. I could be in the salon for half a day and that doesn't appeal to my lifestyle anymore. So I trained myself and my hair on how to be blown out at home. This cream is awesome, it smooths out the frizz, gives my hair a great smell, it's lightweight and provides enough shine so my hair doesn't look brittle but doesn't make it greasy (I HATE GREASY BLOWN OUT HAIR). One day i'll do a tutorial on how I blow my hair out.
Zoya Fall 2013 Cashmere Collection - Hunter
This color is AMAZING!!!!! The whole collection is beautiful but I am obsessed with this color. The pigment of the laquer is true (meaning it picks up exactly the color you want & the color pigments are strong and not weak). I haven't used this one yet because I need to let my nails grow out a little bit more so I can really show off a super cute mani in this color. I tend to steer to the dark side when it comes to my nails in the Fall. (Hello fans of "Linkin Park After Dark") My husband hates it, but he knows i'm manic about my manicures!!!! So sorry babe no french tips, or "Ballet Slippers" on my hands in the fall.
Wet & Wild Mega Lengths Mascara
I know....i'm not 15 I shouldn't be purchasing mascara for $1.99 but if Fergie can come out with a line for Wet & Wild who am I to not try some products out. I bought this on a whim, I had left my makeup case at home and felt like I needed a pick me up in the eye area. It elongates my lashes and I love the brush. Nothing more nothing less!
I love her vibe! She reminds me of Sade, Lauren Hill, & Billie Holiday all in ONE!!!! She's from the UK and you would not expect her sound to be so soulful. I've been listening to "If you're never gonna move" on repeat since the song aired on last week's episode of Basketball Wives
PSL - Starbucks
PSL means Pumpkin Spice Latte! Some people HATE pumpkin....I LOVE pumpkin. PSL's are my absolute favorite fall coffee drink. It even prompted me to start researching how to make a pumpkin pie my southern family would actually like. We like Sweet Potato Pie vs. Pumpkin. Anyway, this drink is dreamy, creamy, spicy, and warm. I can't express how much I adore PSL's! Did I ever tell you being a Barista at SBUX is on my bucket list??? Well, it is!!!
Have a Happy Hump Day!!!!!
