What I've been up to.

Hola! How is everyone doing? Well, I hope.

I can't believe it's been almost a year since I've taken a break from blogging! It hasn't been a fun one, but necessary. I've been having have headaches for quite some time now, and well... I've had MRI's, blood tests, EEG's, and CT scans. I'm about to go to a neurologist and I've been going to one of the largest hospitals in the U.S. every month trying to figure out what is going on.

I know you want a silly picture..

This was right before I got shot in the face repeatedly with a strobe light :-/
So, some encouraging things.. I'm going back to school in January! I'm super excited about that. I changed my major from Biology to Early Childhood Education.

I have still been buying polish and my count is up to 382...oops :D lol

So I think I'm going to hop on this Indie Nail Polish trend. Have you tried any indie polishes? What did you think?

I hope all stays well!

Love Always!

Sorry about the dodgy performance

I'm going through a really tough time in my home life right now, and it's kind of diminished my passion for polish and posting. I love posting but when other things in your life go awry things can fall to the wayside and unfortunately this, among other things have fallen. I'm going to take a break until I can get this sorted out. Sorry, I really really hope to be back soon.

Essie Fair Game

In the last two weeks I've hauled to beat all hauls, and have found myself with roughly 50  or more un-trieds. So in the next coming weeks I'm going to try and swatch most of them for you. 

I haven't been around the last week, and for that I apologize. I recently started working at my church. So on top of going to school, I'm working two jobs. But I've finally got my schedule down and am be back to normal scheduled programming :D

Today I have for you Essie's Fair Game. This came out in 2011 with their Resort Fair Game Collection.

 Fair Game is a grey blue with shimmer. It is a wonderful one coater, but I did use two coats to try and hide some of the streakiness. I'm sure the streaking was due to my brushing so many times. 

 My cuticles are looking harsh, but much better than what they were.. Just a work in progress!

Final Verdict: I really like this polish. It's a beautiful color. I highly recommend it :)

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a fantastic day!

Elf Haul!

I hadn't been by Elf's website in a while, so I stopped by and ended up ordering some stuff. 
They always have deals and coupon codes. You usually can always get something free or pay no shipping. It's pretty cool. 

Elf has a abundance of ranges, their $1.00 range and their $3.00 studio line, their $5.00 mineral range, and they of course have more expensive (but still cheap!) products as well. 

$5.00 Mineral Lipsticks in Natural Nymph - a nude color
and Rich Raspberry - a deep raspberry color. 

my dad was cleaning his fan, so it became part of the background lol. 

Rich Raspberry on top and Natural Nymph on bottom.

$3.00 Studio Line Cream Eyeliner in Teal Tease 
and Punk Purple.

I've noticed that I had to build but Punk Purple to be truly opaque, 
Teal Tease wasn't so thin and didn't have to be built up.

Translucent Matifying Powder $3.00 Studio Line.

This powder is definitely matifying(which is not a real word btw), but it breaks apart so easily, 
my compact is covered in powder. 

Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
$3.00 Studio Line.

These don't have names, but the blush is a is peach with gold shimmer  
the bronzer is a light brown with gold shimmer

Yes that is my shopping list :)

You can see the gold shimmer here.

$3.00 Studio Line Blush in Candid Coral

Coral/Peach color with golden shimmer

$3.00(now on sale for $2.25) Essential Beauty School 
Blush & Bronzer Palette. 

Blushes: A pale pink with no shimmer and a deep pink with silver glitter

Bronzers: A light tan with silver shimmer and a 
deep brown with silver shimmer. 

This was my freebie, It is a $1.00 Hypershine Lipgloss in Berry Cherry.

I didn't think I was going to like this color, but I really did It goes on well and isn't tacky at all. 

On a side note, the only thing containing parabens was the the Hypershine Lipgloss.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
