Something new in my world recently is Instagram!

TRAVEL TIP: Books & Magazines

I was going through my closet a few weeks ago getting rid of everything that I don't need anymore, when I came across this laptop case that came with my purse that I bought from Target. My intentions were to keep it--because, let's face it, I knew I could use it for something!

Well, I found my use for it! I don't know about you, but I get super annoyed when the pages of my books and magazines get bent all to hell, but they fit perfectly inside the laptop case!
 


I do quite a bit of traveling with road trips with the boy or just to school. I do a lot of reading and looking through magazines gathering inspiration during those trips or during my downtime at school.

This past weekend the boy and I made a trip about 2 hours from home, and it was so nice to reach into my bag and grab out a neat magazine that wasn't bent or curled from being in my purse!

This is just one of those things that makes life so much better, and I hope that you found it helpful!

Cheers to no more bent pages!

Lorac Pro Palette REVIEW

You guys asked for it...HERE IT IS! I have finally gotten around to reviewing the Lorac PRO Palette ($42).

The boy bought this palette for me about a month ago, and not only do I absolutely love him, I LOVE the palette as well! Honestly, if I would choose this palette over both the Naked palettes from Urban Decay!


Reasons why I wanted it:
1. Half matte(8)-half shimmer(8)
2. Has three great browns
3. Very beautiful, light, neutral colors
4. Darker shades (Matte black & brown)
5. Word was that every color was pigmented!
6. It literally would have every color you'd need!

 There are so many reasons I like this palette. Every reason I wanted it just makes it that much better now that I've been using it throughout the month. You can achieve a light, everyday look or a beautiful smokey eye look.

The shadows can be a bit "powdery" but a little tap of the brush before application takes care of that.

Like I said before, I would take this palette over both of the Naked palettes. It's a few bucks cheaper, and comes with more shadows. There are 8 matte, 8 shimmer shades that are so gorgeous.In my opinion, I think there are very close dupes from the Naked palettes.

As far as which palette best suits you...I guess it's just a matter of opinion.

Let me know what your thoughts are of this palette! I would to hear from you!

Bride-To-Be VoxBox Reviews!

Kiss everEZlashes $3.99


I love wearing false lashes, but I've never tried these. It was an interesting experience; however, I did NOT like the strings. they didn't pull out easily, and I could not get the lashes lined up to my lashes using them. I loved the lashes...not the strings. I pulled the strings out before I did the second eye and applied them like I normally would, and they looked so much better than trying to use the strings with them.

It came with a little tube of lash glue which I thought worked fine. I prefer my DUO lash glue that I just recently purchased over anything.
 
Verdict: Great lashes, you don't need the strings! I will probably purchase them!

Dream Water $2.99


I have to admit that I was hesitant to use it. It claims to help you fall asleep. I chugged it, and about 20 minutes after drank it, I felt tired. It seems like a great overall idea, but I'm thinking that it's more of a "mental" thing...like "I just drank dream water, so I should feel sleepy" if that makes sense?

Verdict: To me it's a mental thing more than anything. I won't be repurchasing.

IvyDate


The box came with a business card for Ivydate.com and a code for "Friends of the Bride who are still looking for the one." I've never used a dating site, and neither have any of my friends. This is actually the first time of me hearing about this certain dating site.

Verdict: Not sure.Check it out if you want to? haha

Rescue Gum $5.95'


This gum claims to relieve your stress. I didn't like it. The flavor was okay....I'm more of a minty gum girl, and this just didn't cut it. I gave it to my family to try, and they didn't like it either. I've been really stressed with school lately, and didn't even notice a difference. I chewed it before and while taking an exam, and I didn't notice a difference.

Verdict: Not very good. Won't purchase.

Schwarzkopf Professionals BC Repair Rescue

BC Repair Rescue Shampoo $18

BC Repair Rescue Conditioner $21
BC Repair Rescue Sealed Ends $21


LOVE all three of these products. I have thick hair and ever since I have started using these my hair has felt so light and airy. I don't care for the smell of the shampoo, but the conditioner and sealed ends smell amazing! I have noticed that when I curl my hair, it stays curled for much longer than normal. I was hesitant about using the conditioner because it is such a thin consistency, but it actually detangled and smoothed my hair very nicely. As far as the sealed ends, there's no way that it can repair your split ends. Once your hair splits, it splits. I do like this product because it does seem to leave my hair even more smooth.

Verdict: I love these products. I don't know if I will repurchase, but it's a possibility.

These are my own opinions. This box was sent to my by Influesnter for the purpose of review.

REVIEW: Revlon ColorStay Whipped Foundation

Verdict: I LOVE THIS STUFF!


I have been using the ColorStay Liquid foundation for the past two years now, and it just hasn't been working as great lately. When I saw this new Whipped formula on YouTube, I knew I had to try it to see if it would even compare to the Liquid formula.

I don't think I have ever been so impressed with a product before in my life! You can get whatever coverage you need out of this product. You can apply it thinly or if you need more coverage in certain area, it's buildable without looking cake-y!

I have really oily skin, and I'm NOT oily by the end of the day. That alone makes me so freakin' happy! haha I don't need to set it with powder, and it's much more blendaable, in my opinion, than the ColorStay Liquid Foundation.

The price made me hesitant to buy because it was $14. But because I had a coupon for ULTA, I got it for about $9. Totally worth the price. The packaging claims you get 0.8 fl. oz. and the Liquid you get 1.0 fl. oz. In my opinion, that doesn't mean anything because we all use a different amount of foundation from day-to-day, so you're obviously going to run out whenever you're gonna run out.

At my ULTA there were I believe 10-12 shades of the Whipped formula. For the liquid I think there are more shades, and you have the option to buy the "Normal" and "Combination/Oily" formulas which you don't have that option with the Whipped.

When I originally posted on Twitter asking if you guys were interested in a first impressions/review, the majority of questions I had were if it was good for dry skin. I don't have dry skin; I have very oily skin. Because I don't get oily throughout the day, I'm just gonna take a stab at it and say that it MIGHT be DRYING if you have dry skin. Again, that's just my opinion, so if I can find a good review of this product from someone who has dray skin, I will let you guys know!

You all wanted to know what I use to blend it out with, and I use either my ELF Flattop Powder Brush or my Real Techniques Buffing Brush.

I think that's all I have to say about this product, but if you have any other questions just leave them in the comments! Let me know if you like this if you have tried it!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Colored Contacts--Eyesbright.com

 Notice anything different!?


I haven been having so much fun playing with these colored contacts that I received from www.EyesBright.com. Any kind of contact lenses that you can think of, you can find it on their site! They have both prescription who need it and non prescription for people like me who don't.They are a company from the UK, but I thought that the shipping was great! It only took a little over a week.

I chose brown because my eyes are originally blue, so I wanted to switch it up!When I got them in the mail I didn't tell anyone because I wanted to see if anyone noticed. I must say that everyone knew something was different, but they had no idea! The boy didn't even notice--but I guess that's normal! haha



I got to admit I was really scared to put them in and take them out, but I've gotten the hang of them! I am interested in getting more because I love the way I can change up my look!

I also absolutely love how my blue eyes come through when my pupils are smalls.
I think this time of year is perfect for experimenting with your look--especially with Halloween not too far away!

Let me know if you like the new look and don't forget to check out www.Eyesbright.com!
