Trending Tuesday’s Topic: Square or Round Nail Tips

Hi everyone! I hope your long weekend was wonderful, and that you spent it with your family and friends for the holiday!

Today’s topic stems from a long, heated discussion about nails. Personally, I’m a fan of the square nails, but my nails go to an automatic round shape. The only way I can successfully get them to a square shape is if someone does them!

So I ask you, your thoughts. My mom has always done her nails round, but my sister square. I personally thing rounder nails make your fingers look longer and slimmer (shout out to the girls with sausage fingers)! 

Have a good one and see you all tomorrow!

Wedding Wednesday’s Topic: The Bridesmaid Dress- I need!!!

So I saw these dresses on Pinterest eons ago, and I haven’t found anything I really like after that. I think while these dresses are completely adorable, my sister - who will end up being my right hand WO-man and automatic MOH, is on a mission to find these suckers. 

I’m currently to the point where finding these will be the mission of my engagement. For being what you’d call a larger bride, mostly all of the girls I have being bridesmaids are very small and petite. I think these dresses would look great on all of them. Plus they have a little bit of sparkle, too. 

My sister on the other hand has her own ideas for what she’d like to wear for my wedding… Maybe I’ll just give her creative license for it. 

Pray for me now!

Fun Friday Topic- 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty

GREED
What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

My most inexpensive beauty item would probably be the NYX Lipgloss I got for 50% off at Ulta. It was like a $1.50 - and it’s one of the best lipglosses I own! My most expensive would probably be my Lancôme Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate Serum at $120.00. Yes, that’s correct, I’ll be 25 in a few short weeks and I’m using anti-aging products on a continuous basis. I actually love this stuff because it makes my face so soft and my make-up glides on. Love it!

WRATH
What beauty products do you have a love hate relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?

Oh jeez. I have lots of love/hate relationships. I have a love/hate relationship with moisturizer. Gosh, I hate it. But then I love to lather myself up in it when I don’t have to go out or have a day off. My hardest products to get.. Hm that’s difficult. I try to not let this happen to me, but when they discontinued my Buxom Lip Balm- I freaked. I traveled to Sephora’s basically around the east coast, and found 2 pretty little tubs left. I am currently saving them in their pretty little containers.

GLUTTONY
What is your most delicious beauty product?

Honestly, I love the smell of any pressed product from Lancôme. My mom was an avid Lancôme customer (&& still is) when I was little, and whenever I wear them the smell takes me back to my childhood. I remember watching her put her make-up on and her brushing blush over my cheeks before she went to work. It’s one of my favorite smells ever.

SLOTH
What product do you neglect due to laziness?

Filling in my eyebrows. I will look at the container and think to myself… Nah, I don’t need them today. What I don’t understand is that actually eyebrows make you more visually appealing. It does, and it also gives your face some depth. Do your eyebrows. I’ll try to start doing mine too.

PRIDE
What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?

My eyelashes give me the most confidence. I have some crazy, long ones that don’t even need curled. (Yes, I know I am very lucky.) But my sister and I always joke, “Having a good eyelash day = having a good day!” But I baby my eyelashes like no other, and am very thankful for awesome mascara (L’Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black) that adds lots of volume and length. Pow! Long lashes!

LUST
What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?

Well I’ll start with physical here… I love light eyes on my guy. Light blue/green work for me. Also, I love a little of a scruffy factor. I’m a sucker for a guy who’s got a 3 day beard going for him. (Chris has a great one.) Some internal attributes I like in a guy is: having a good sense of humor, someone who is passionate about the things he loves, good moral values, and someone who is humble but a little rebellious.

ENVY
What item would you most like to receive as a gift?

Well currently, I have a LUSH wishlist longer than the equator. I’d love to get +$160 in LUSH products. But honestly, I’m a sucker for cards. I have cards from my friends, coworkers, and students as well as my family. I have all my graduation cards saved in a little keepsake box. A heart-felt card could seriously make my day, and sometimes that’s all I need. I have every card Chris even gave me- and I’ll probably save them all.

I hope you enjoyed this!! I had lots of fun doing it!

Have a great long weekend everyone! See you Tuesday!

New Purchase Thursday’s: La Fresh Wipes

So I was playing around on Hautelook the other day and saw these wipes. I thought, “Hey this is brilliant! Chris and I will be driving 13 hours to the beach this summer… We’ll need refreshed!” So I bought them.

I got them in the mail, and was pleasantly surprised by them! Here’s a list of the types of wipes that came in the male and female bags!

Male:
-Lens and Screen Cleaning Wipes
-Insect Repellant Wipes
-Anti-Perspirant Wipes
-Shoe Shine Wipes
-Male Hygiene Wipes
-Anti-Bacterial Wipes

Female:
-Female Hygiene Wipes
-Make-Up Remover Wipes
-Nail Polish Remover Wipes
-Lens and Screen Cleaning Wipes
-Anti-Perspirant Wipes
-Facial Cleansing Wipes

Now I haven’t played around with them yet (I want to save them), but I may try the make-up remover and facial wipes to get a feel for them. I’ve read some great reviews on them, so I’m definitely excited to try them out, and it may help us on our VERY LONG car ride to the beach.

Chris is already playing, “On the Road Again”…

Wedding Wednesday’s Topic: Wedding Shoes!!!

Hi dears!

It’s Wedding Wenesday and you’re just in time to talk about Betsey Johnson’s new shoe line, Blue.

She is designing these for upcoming brides, and she’s slowly but surely building it. (She’s also adding handbags as we speak!) But these Betsey’s are her usual pretty, rockstar self… She takes shoes and just kicks them up another level. Ms. Johnson adds sparkles, bows, and spikes to mostly all of her shoes- and she has them for all types of brides!

I personally like the embellished bows (in the middle picture) and the rhinestoned, spiked heels (on the top right). It’s a good thing that Chris is tall, because I’m totally getting a pair or 2 of these!

I think I’m in love!

Make-Up Monday’s Topic: Soleil Tan De Chanel

Hi guys!

So sorry I’ve been off the radar for a few days! Work has been totally busy- insert my eye rolling here.

I ordered these little Chanel beauties after watching Tiffany D. on YouTube- she may be one of my favs! I watched her ‘how to’ video on these, and thought, “…Wow. I need these.” Now she recommends a kabuki brush to use the flat circular container, I think that would work. But I’ve also been using a flat bronzer brush from Crown Brush to work with it. The Sun-Kissed Illuminating Fluid I dab on the top of my cheekbones, and wipe across with my finger.

Once I used both of these, I went downstairs to show my resident make-up inspector, my mom, and she was surprised. I’m currently very fair, I haven’t started my base tanning for my vacation. I was worried about turning orange, but it kept me still on the tan side giving me just a hint of bronze.

It’s definitely my new favorite thing… But watch out, it’s heavy on your pockets at $48.00 a piece!

Have a great Monday all!!

Wedding Wednesday’s Blog Topic: Gifts for the Groom

As my other half and I were driving around on Sunday, we were talking about glassware. (Yes, I know we’re on the strange end of the spectrum!) But Chris had brought up the fact that his friend had received Tiffany & Co. old-fashioned glasses for his college graduation. After that item just happened to be mentioned, I looked over and was surprised that I saw that same look I make when I look at Louis Vuitton handbag section in Nordstroms… Want. 

It occurred to me that typically boys buy jewelry while dating and then go out and buy engagement rings. Most, if not all, of these guys that we’re close to marrying get us things that we “want”, but never exclaim that they may “want” something in turn.

I always try and keep things equal with him- but we always never seem to balance out. When I think about it: he’s put up with my mood swings (which can sometimes be torrential), he smiles through all the countless work events I drag him to- while he’s in a suit, and then comes to my rescue when I have an issue with my car. Listen, he may drive me crazy sometimes, but, he’s given me practically everything and anything I want/need, if he wants these crazy expensive cups, why the heck not?!

So when my mind goes, “He wants Tiffany & Co. old-fashioned glasses - is he insane?!” I just need to smile and say, “We’ll see, hun.” Then plant the seed in the back of my mind, for when we have our big day!

So think of your man, or even keep this in mind for future reference! 

Remember, happy husband = happy wife = happy life!
