Tattoos and Engagement Rings

Inked and Engaged!!!


ENGAGED in 3…2…1… 

While, I may not have the best planning-savy fiance in the whole world, but there is one thing I know for sure. I love that wonderful man, more than I thought I could love anything.

After 5 years together, I got the best Valentine’s Day surprise ever!

He’s my lobster.  and I cannot wait to take “My name is Earl”  pictures together for the rest of our lives. babes


Ring Sneak Peek

INK: Ride or Die Potterhead. Broke the skin silence, and ventured to get my first tattoo. I definitely played into the hype about the pain, however with all my other permanent piercings and such, this was easy-smeasy!!


Stay tuned for exciting new adventures to come, I can’t wait to start planning our shindig, but I can’t wait to start the rest of our lives together EVEN MORE!! I am so excited to start DIY-ing and collaborating to create a beautifully unique kickoff to a wonderful life with my best friend.
Join me as I weed through the ins and outs of wedding planning and taking this giant leap to blissful matrimony!wpid-picsart_1408126678266.jpg

February ipsy Glam Bag Review 2015

 IPSY LOVE February Glambag



  • City Color Cosmetics Creamy Lip Stain in Flirtini
  • Demeter Fragrance Library First Love Roll-on Oil
  • GLAMGLOW Bright Mud eye treatment
  • ModelCo. Blush In Peachy
  • ‘Tini Beauty Rob Scheppy Eyeshadow

POSITIVES: Blush: very pretty color, especially for the coming Spring, packaging on this blush is super fancy as well, feels very sturdy. Eye-shadow: LOVE shimmery champagne colors. Who doesn’t?! It gives off a lovely shimmer and is a great yellowy gold shade. Lip-stain: This stuff is SO nice! almost a dupe for the NYX Soft Matte Lip creams. Thankfully its pale nude-pink shade goes well with my skin tone!

NEGATIVES: Bag: very mundane….with V-day I would have thought it could have been more creative, but I guess its decent for everyday use. I hate the front zip. It shrinks the bag size by inches! Fragrance: This oil got everywhere. I am clumsy. Yes. But I swear it was not human error. I smelt like a flower pot for hours. (lasting power could be a slight positive though!? Maybe?!)

Feb. Bag

This bag nearly completed an entire makeup look with what I received! It makes me want to wear all the products at the same time….ALL the time!


LOVED using the GlamGlow eye treatments!! These felt very cooling and tingling on the skin. Although I have to say that the chucks of whatever kind of herb/grass/lint-looking specks were pretty off putting. But not so much that I didn’t use them, and I still plan to use them again!

Valentine’s Day NOTD #3


Ombre Heart to Heart


Valentines day has me pulling every shade of pink and red polish I own. I want to use EVERY color in my vast collection that even hints at the pretty girly lovey-dovey colors that V-Day brings. This Ombre look finally satisfied my longing for wearing all the pinks and reds on the same finger~

I’m Seeing Spots! You’re Seeing Spots!

Valentines Day Nail-look using striping and dotting tools along with a very steady hand! Excuse my thumb-half. The design was terribly goopy when I finished this look at midnight (#truelife) which meant I woke up with bedsheet imprints! Needless to say…  it didn’t make the cut!
