'A little Sephora Haulage'...

Moving day is finally here! As I mentioned before, the boyfriend and I are moving states, AGAIN. As a result I will be without internet for a while :( So I leave you now with some Sephora goodies!

I decided it was about time to make a little dent in my Sephora Wish List =) Not to mention I have been out of my HG cuticle cream for quite a while now, so it was needed!

'NOTD: Cajun Shrimp'...

This is a very popular OPI nail varnish shade, and for good reason! It's a gorgeous coral/red that would go with pretty much every skin-tone imaginable. =)

 It is also a very shiny polish. I don't even wear a top coat!

'Upcoming Collections: MAC's MAC Me Over, and Styledriven'

So I was really looking forward to MAC's Semi Precious Collection, and guess what.... I didn't end up getting ANYTHING from it! I know, crazy right?? I was very tempted to pick up an MSF or 2 but I was able to hold myself back. Talk about willpower ;) Anyway, MAC has a huge collection coming out August 25th (in the US) and some things have caught my eye!

All photos are from If you want to check out more pictures of the upcoming collections, click her link!

'OPI Haul!!'

When I visited home a few weeks ago I sort of went crazy with OPI. It isn't available where I live now (or where I'm moving to) so I felt like I needed to stock up! Makes total sense, right? ;) The boyfriend would be completely horrified if he saw this.. good thing he's not into beauty blogs!!

'INs and OUTs'... to LIVE FOR


- MOVING! I never thought I'd see the day when moving was under the "INs" category. But I'm super excited! In about 1 week I will be packing up and moving to South Dakota... Yep I said it... SOUTH DAKOTA!! Let's see how I adapt! haha

South Dakota sign!!

- FALL Fashion! Call me crazy but I'm really looking forward to fall. I can't wait to wear my platforms with flares and knee high boots with skinnies! Don't even get me started on layering... I'm so excited to wear jackets again!

- Re-DECORATING! The boyfriend and I haven't even moved into our new house yet and I'm already thinking about re-vamping our decor =) Here are just a few things that I found on!
I totally want these curtains for my all white kitchen!
Tell me you don't love this bath mat =)
I've been searching for affordable shelving. I love the "invisible" look of these!

- Giving my fur babies extra loving! I had to take Lily (the white one) to get fixed earlier this week. I felt like a terrible mother leaving her at the vet's! So they both have been getting spoiled since then =)

Awe look at the spoon-age!

- Ummmm..... I've got nothin'!!

Hope you are all having an amazing summer!!!

Let's talk brushes: Real Techniques...

Have you ever taken a step back, looked at your makeup collection, and realized you were in a makeup rut?? Well that's how I am with brushes!! I realized LITERALLY every brush I own is by MAC. I swear I didn't do it on purpose! haha  MAC has quality brushes, is easily accessible to me, and is right at my price point (with my discount!)... So it just happened!

When Samantha Chapman (of Pixiwoo) designed a brush line I knew things were about to change with my brush collection =) Coming from one of the Chapman sisters meant I had high expectations, and I was not disappointed!!

Here are the 2 I have picked up so far...

Real Techniques: Shading brush, Foundation brush

'NOTD: Inspired!!'...

All right, so I found a picture online a few months ago and fell in love! I believe this look was done with a Chanel polish, but I used a mix of some polishes I have in my stash =)

Here's the inspiration for my current NOTD...

Read on for my interpretation and the polishes I used!

On vacation I stocked up on some OPI polishes. Here's a sneek peak of one I purchased! =)

OPI Nail Lacquer in "OPI Ink"
I have owned this color before, and I just adore it!! Such a pretty dark, sparkly blackened purple. LOVE!

'Drugstore NAIL POLISH Haul'

Lately I have been lusting over nail polishes WAY more than makeup... So of course the last time I went into a drugstore I had to pick some up that I have had my eye on!!

Sinful Colors...

left to right: Sinful Colors in 830 "Pinky Glitter", 319 "What's Your Name", 949 "Nirvana"
Sinful Colors always has trendy shades out, and are only $1.99 at most drugstores so they are perfect!! I have found that the glitters tend to be rather thick... I'm not sure if it is the formula or if I have gotten old polishes, but I always have to add thinner to them! :(

Sally Hansen...

Sally Hansen in "First Kiss"
I can't wait to wear this color!! It's a beautiful alternative to my neon summer colors :)

YAY for nail polish!!


Update: Things to come!!

So for just over a week I have been gone on vacation back home to see family and friends. Needless to say, I now have posts backed up that I need to do!

While I was gone I did some serious damage to an OPI display =).......  I have new brushes from a couple different brands to review....... I hit up the drugstore and purchased a few items....... and I have a GIVEAWAY coming up!!!

So what has everyone been up to lately?! I feel like I will never catch up reading other people's blogs that I have missed while I was gone! haha
