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

wpid-wp-1424321935404.jpeg

 GOODIES:

  • 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!

GLAMGLOW

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!

Ombre Heart to Heart

wpid-wp-1423763530264.jpeg

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!
