A Tour of My Vanity

It’s a hot and sunny Sunday here in Maryland! The fiance and I are half way through our awesome three day weekend of gaming, relaxing and for me, blogging! As I had mentioned in my previous post, I turned our spare bedroom into what my fiance has dubbed “The Fortress of Makeuptude” (Superman reference for any confused readers). I had waited for the day to have my own space where I could have room to store all my awesome makeup and not have it overcrowd our bedroom, so when I say I was super duper excited, it is an understatement!

I’ve had my beauty space now for about a few months and I loooooooove it! I still need a few more home decor pieces but I like the way my vanity has turned out. I wanted to share with you guys my “workspace”, beware though! This post will be picture heavy to say the least!

Enjoy!

My Summer Loves

First off, how the hell are ya guys?! I know it’s been the better part of a century since I’ve posted! Okay so it hasn’t quite been that long, but I could feel that little blogger in me screaming “Post something, ANYTHING!” So here I am alive and mostly kickin’! I guess I should update everyone on my whereabouts and what the hell I’ve been doing with myself.

It’s Party Time!

Since Halloween is this Wednesday all the festivities will be taking place this weekend. I am honestly not a big costume or dress-up kinda gal when it cones to this holiday, but since Tim is a giddy little school girl for Halloween I promised I’d do something :). Since its last minute and I’m without costume for tonight, what better than some bad ass makeup?!

I have always envied the ladies who can perfect the sugar skull makeup, and decided to give it a try :). I’ll admit I was nervous, but once I dove in I had fun doing this look and it was surprisingly easy. So since my trial run went swimmingly I am definitely posting the result for you lovely nerds!

It needs to be tweaked a little but I love this look! It’s scary and adorable (according to Tim lol) so I know he loves it.

I’m more than curious to hear your thoughts!

Happy Halloween Weekend Nerds!

My Favorites

Each fragrance, in my opinion, is unique and I use them for different occasions. Baby Phat Goddess is a floral scent that I wear as my everyday perfume since it lasts for most of the day (in a nice way not a in a cheap hooker strong scent way). Guess Seductive I’m Yours is a woodsy/floral scent which is a perfect night out with my girls scent since its a little stronger and lasts all night. Victoria’s Secret Bombshell is a fruity/floral scent that I wear for day dates with my boyfriend since its his favorite and reminds me of summer when I wear it.

Lolita Lempicka is a sweet/spicy/powder scent that honestly is the best friggin thing I’ve ever smelt :). I wear it as a secondary daytime everyday scent. Kim Kardashian Gold is a citrusy/spicy scent and my winter fragrance since its a moderately strong fragrance. Kim Kardashian is a sweet/floral scent that reminds me of a gardenia perfume my mom wore that I always loved.

I can’t put my finger on why I love this color combination so much, I guess cause their my two favorite colors individually :). I’ve never purchased any Wet N’ Wild polishes before but I found this polish (I Need A Refresh-Mint) at  Walmart last night and didn’t think twice. I will say that this polish is amazing so far!

I only needed one coat of polish and I almost don’t need a top coat cause the polish has a very nice shine.

Day Twenty-Two: What’s Your Favorite Makeup Brand?

Its almost impossible to pick just one brand since I have quite a few that I adore, but if I must pick it would definitely be…

image

I know, shocked right? I’m pretty much obsessed with NYX Cosmetics ! If you’ve been following my blog for a bit then you know my makeup collection is mostly NYX, and I have almost all their palettes in my arsenal. I came across this brand a year ago and since then I’ve praised their cosmetics for being so affordable, and the same quality as the higher end brands!

Also one of the most important things with this brand…
