Beauty Wish List Spring 2014

Totally resisting the Sephora 15% off since I probably don't have that much money left after purchasing too much stuff for face painting supplies and clothes.

I'm sad T.T I wish I had more money D: Oh well, in due time I will have a proper job and will have cash rolling in. It's not like I NEED these things immediately. They can wait.

For now, this will remain a wish list, rather than a "will actually buy now" list.

In no particular order, here's my list:

1) YSL Lipsticks $35

  • Keep seeing this on missnataliie 's blog and among other bloggers and youtubers. The pigmentation looks great and so does the packaging. 


2) Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick $22

  • Heard this from FrmHeadToToe Jen of course! Much more "affordable" than the YSL lipsticks but still pricey IMO. Looks great though!

3) Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer $18-52
  • I've heard great things about the oil-control of this primer. None of my primers have worked for me. 



4) Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder $45
  • EVERYONE and their mother raves about this highlighting product. RaeView in particular has a lot of these and she loves them and they make her look glowy and fresh without looking like a disco ball. 


5) SK-II Skincare Line $too expensive.




6) Japanese lipsticks (KATE, Lavshuca, Integrate, Coffret D'or, Lunasol etc) 
  • Who doesn't like Japanese makeup? Sure some are lower/better quality than others, but no one can deny the pretty packaging and fun colors. Japanese lipsticks range between $10-30


7) Fresh Soy Face Cleanser $15-38
  • I hear good things about this cleanser too so I want to try it but I feel like it's so gentle for the skin that it may not improve my skin any? Thoughts? If it's just meant to be gentle only then I think I should just continue using my Dove Unscented Sensitive Skin bar soap.

8) A high quality fluffy Bronzer Brush
  • I have an angled blush brush but it makes such a harsh line so I want something fluffy to blend the bronzer better


9) Lush products
  • Now I've actually used this Vanishing Cream shown before and I did like it but at $42.95 I couldn't justify buying it again ._. With that money I can actually buy a Laneige Emulsion that's two times the product amount. But I did enjoy this cream while it lasted. One day when I have money I'll return to this as well as try other products that may be better

10) A high quality curling iron $too expensive.


If I think of any more I'll add to my list but that's it for now! 

What are yall wanting to buy? Let me know down in the comments!

See yall later!

SOTD (Selfie of the Day) April 10 2014

So I made up a new "of the day" thing, Selfie of the Day, unless that was already out there? Anyway this wasn't from today since I wore the red blouse and zara white skort as shown in my previous blogpost and video.

Anyway, I just didn't want to title my posts "camwhoring session" again because that sounded kind of bad and unappealing.

I took a few shots of myself that I want to share with yall. It's really hard taking pictures when you only have a 50mm 1.8 fixed lens, no zoom. However I did purchase online recently a 28mm-135mm zoom lens that I had sent to my Texas address, which I'll get when I come there next week.

Outfit Of The Day OOTD April 10, 2014

So I was running errands today and ate some lunch and this is what I wore. I think this outfit looks much better than my previous OOTD two days ago.

I will edit this post later with a video I made for this outfit once it uploads.

The photographer is my boyfriend. He and I both don't really know what we're doing for photos. He's just taking directions from me and trying his best and then I don't really know how to pose so things end up looking not as artistic as stuff on lookbook.nu and other fashion blogs.

Any pointers? I've tried watching youtube videos on how to pose for pictures but I'm still awkward and the pictures don't look artistic enough.

Skort: Zara $50
Heels: H&M $70 (out of stock)
Necklace: Forever21 $8 (purchased in store)
Purse: Nine West $15 from Ross

EDIT:




End Edit

That's all folks! I'm slowly but surely improving my outfits. I'm in the process of redoing my closet.

See yall later!

Eating Panera Bread Sierra Turkey Sandwich and Chicken Noodle Soup

Quick post on what I ate today at Panera Bread!

It's called the Sierra Turkey Sandwich. It consists of turkey breast slices, Asiago cheese bread, red onions, lettuce/greens, and chipotle mayo.

I normally don't like mayo but this one tasted good.

The sandwich. It was pretty yummers

Alrightey see yall soon!

Outfit of the Day OOTD April 18, 2014 Tuesday

So this is what I wore out to Panera Bread, sporting my new Merona Meredith wedge heels I got from Target.

These pictures aren't super "art-y" like pictures you'd find on other blogs or on loobook.nu but it's because my boyfriend took these pictures haha. He isn't into photography and doesn't completely know how to take pictures so he doesn't know the good angles and what not. I had to give brief directions on what to do for these pictures.

But it's okay. At least I have someone to take pictures for me now, even though I won't be in this location for that long since I'll be heading out to California for my internship during the summer.

So I took these pictures at my apartment, quite literally right in front of my door lol. Wasn't able to go on campus to take more beautiful scenery shots cause school is still in session during the weekdays so I didn't want to feel awkward by taking pictures of myself in front of others. I'm too self conscious for that :(

Anyhoodle here are some pictures! My outfit isn't anything spectacular but I thought it looked cute.

Mk see yall in my next post!

Target Merona Meredith Wedge Heels in Tan

So I went to Target to buy some groceries and...well.....wandered off into the shoe section hehehe....xD

I've seen these shoes quite frequently actually in the blogger world and most people, if not all, have said these are very comfortable to wear all day. I guess I'll have to see? I've worn them out once today to Panera Bread and they've been fine, but that's not saying much because I was sitting down eating most of the time.

I'll update yall on an actual review I suppose of the comfort of these shoes later on.

For now, enjoy the pictures:

Don't they look perfect for summer?

They come in Tan, Navy, and Black.

Cost: $29.99 (not on sale)

So far I really like them! Casual and understated but still chic, in my opinion anyway. Some people out there may think these shoes look kinda bland or ugly, but its okay. I like them :)

See yall in my next post that I'll post up real soon.

H&M Lace Up Genuine Suede Heels

"Splurged" $72.xx on these heels. To me that's splurging even if it's not over $100. Anything $50+ on shoes is a splurge to me lol

Anyway, here are some shots of the heels! Enjoy~

See yall later, hopefully soon!

Spring Time Tuscaloosa 2014

Went outside last week to take these nature shots before the storm hit and destroyed all the flowers off the tree. Glad I got the shots before they were all gone!
