Ok ladies,

there are a few reasons why I have not posted anything this week.

1.  Getting ready for school.

2.  I bought the beautiful MacBook Pro!!

I have been playing with this thing for 2 days straight.  Trying to upload all of the fun things I enjoy on computers.

The cool thing is that it has iCloud so it can communicate with my iPad!


Just because it CAN do this, doesn't mean I have figured it out yet.

Silly Technology. 

I have been saving up for months to buy this and I got it right before school!  (next tuesday)

So me and riley had a photo shoot.

Please excuse the fact that I am still wearing my makeup from work last night, and have yet to brush my hair.

NOTD - My First Attempt at Nail Art

Hi Ladies!

I decided that since I have so many Julep polishes that I would try my hand at braided nails.  Now, this is my first ever attempt at trying something freehand like this so it is a tad smushy but I think it turned out pretty darn ok!

Julep Maven August - Classic With a Twist

Why Hello Ladies,

Today I wanted to share with you my long overdue haul from Julep.  This month the theme was "Metallics and Chromes", designed to match with this seasons jewelry trends.

I don't know about you ladies, but when I saw the color lineup, I was excited.  I was a little hesitant to order because: 
1. I am broke.  
2. Metallics tend to be a little streaky

But it's Julep!  I couldn't resist!

How Much Does Your Face Cost?

Hello Ladies!

So I have seen this post by many people floating around recently so I figured I should give it a go.

The concept is, if you see a post like this, you make one for yourself!  Basically let us all know which makeup products you use on a daily basis and how much they cost.

Add it all up and that's how much you face costs!

Keep in mind, I do own drugstore makeup but these are my go-to products.  As you will be able to tell, I love Sephora.

Recent Julep NOTD's

 Hi Gals

So as many of you may have been able to tell, I change my nail polish color every few days and lately have rarely used the same color twice.  I always seem to take a picture but don't always get around to posting about my new flavor of the week.

I decided to lump some of the nail polishes together so you can have a chance to see what they look like out of the bottle.

We have Gayle, Leah, Toni, and Frieda

First up: Leah

NOTD - Zoya Shelby

Isn't this just the cutest color you have seen lately? 

I got it in my July Glossy Box.  As this is my first Zoya polish, I had to try it right away.

Benefit CORALista Lip Gloss & Blush

Hey Gals, 

I decided to break out of my blogging funk as of late, to do my first ever Benefit review.  I was walking through shoppers and couldn't help myself in grabbing up one of these bad boys.

Benefit recently came out with this line of six lip glosses to match with their best selling (and best looking for lips) blushes.

I purchased CORALista because it is my favorite blush.

Magnetic Nail Polish - Sally Hansen

Hey Everyone!

Today I wanted to talk to you all about a trend I have been wanting to get my hands on for quite some time now: Magnetic Nail Polish

Have any of you been noticing that the crackle polish trend has been dying out? well that's because there is a new player in town.  In the past the crackle polish has been fairly expensive, and in my own personal experience, a pain in the ass.
