Happy New Year [And Resolutions]


Who else is having a hard time believing that it is almost 2013?! Just the thought of having to write '13 on my papers seems so crazy! The year truly did fly by.

Today is actually a two part post! First, I wanted to give you all an idea that I am going to do in the new year and I hope you do as well! Then, I'm going to talk about my resolutions!

If you frequent tumblr or pinterest you will have definitely already seen this idea as it is huge over there! If not, maybe this will be the first time you're seeing it and I hope that it inspired you to go out and do it with me as well!

The big idea that I'll be doing starting this new year is that I bought an empty glass jar and will fill it up with good things that happen throughout the year. It's that simple! I think it's really a cute idea and it was so cheap, I purchased my glass jar at The Container Store for only a few dollars and will use just regular white computer paper and a black thin sharpie I already have. The idea is to start off with the empty jar and have it filled by the end of the year, at which point you can empty it to look through all of the good that happened!

I'm all ready to start!


Fill the jar with good events that happen throughout the year!
I hope that I've inspired a few of you to actually go out and buy your own jar as I really think that it'll be fun. It's one of those things I'd usually see and think was cute but never actually go out and do it, so I'm happy that I did!

And now onto....

MY NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS!

Ah, New Years Resolutions. Half the time they're a laugh because you know you will never stay true to them and then the other half they're so cliche because everyone picks the same ones! However, I'm determined to beat that and stick to my resolutions this year! Instead of making a whole bunch that I know I'll never keep I'm making a few modest resolutions that I'm going my hardest to keep.

1. The ever-cliche exercise and eat better! I had a really great exercise routine this year, but as school started and life became crazy in September/October it's just gone all down hill, so I want to pick it back up! I'm not going to say exercise 6 days a week/an hour a day because that will definitely lead to failure! I think I'll be happy with just a few days a week and eating a bit more healthy to balance it out.

2. Be happy and positive! Instead of looking at negatives, I want to try my hardest to simply look at the bright side of things. I'm not saying I'm a complete pessimist in life, but I definitely fluctuate from being happy-go-lucky to doomsday downer. I want to try to remain positive and uplifting this year!

3. Do what I enjoy! Instead of wasting my time doing things that I'm not passionate about, I want to fill my time with what I love. Blogging, being with friends, going to lunch with my sisters, and volunteering are all examples of things that I love to do and I want to continue to do them in this year, even when times are crazy and stressful with college right on the horizon. 

Right now, I think that's what I'm going to stick with! I could say I want to try to properly start a YouTube, stop spending so much money on makeup, etc., but I want to stick to just the basics this year. Everything else that is meant to happen will happen!

I won't have another post until the New Year, so I hope that everyone has a great New Years Eve and starts the year off right! Do you have any resolutions? I'd love to hear them!

NAKED Basics Palette

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
Hi everyone and a big hello to all of my new followers! I hope you all are enjoying my blog and excited about my giveaway! As promised, I wanted to share my opinion on this palette as I am giving it away to one of you! These swatches are from my own palette as I obviously did not want to touch the one I will be giving away!

The Naked Basics palette is advertised as the matte baby of the other Naked palettes. This one lives up to its name and is very basic: no fancy packaging, very simple, and tiny as a button! There are a mere 6 shadows in this palette, but it is still 6 full eye shadows and it's a perfect essentials palette for anyone and everyone, from someone just starting to wear makeup to a makeup-crazed beauty blogger.

W.O.S - Foxy - Venus

Crave - Faint - Naked 2
The first three colors of the palette are all white-beige, perfect for the base. The very first color, Venus, definitely has some shimmer in it so it's perfect for a highlight under the brow bone and in the corner of the eye. The next two colors, Foxy and W.O.S. are perfect for on the lids and mattifying (is that even a word?) your whole eye. The next three are where the fun comes in and you are able to blend in the crease and dramatize the look.

One important thing to note in this palette is that 4 of the 6 shades are BRAND NEW! Ah, it definitely made me happy to know that I wasn't wasting my money here. The 2 old shades are Foxy and W.O.S. (Walk of Shame), which are such great shades I really don't mind to see them in this palette. Anyone who does not own the Build-Your-Own Palette is definitely in for a treat as W.O.S. was previously the exclusive shade for that palette.

Overall, I'm extremely happy for Urban Decay to have finally released this palette and I personally have been reaching for it everyday since I bought it. For only $27, you are getting 6 full-sized eye shadows that are perfect for the neutral eye lovers like me.

Be sure that you enter my GIVEAWAY to win your own Naked Basics palette! It's something you do not want to miss out on.

Holiday Beauty Gift Guide





Happy Sunday, everyone! I honestly cannot believe that it is already December. This year has truly flown by and I've been ready for the holidays since... the beginning of November, actually! Now, though, it's socially acceptable to be excited, so my Christmas excitement is now just bursting beyond belief! As I'm sure everyone is now shopping for presents, I wanted to create a little bit of a gift guide for everyone to share! These are some personal beauty favorites of mine that are on my Christmas list and maybe they could be on yours as well!

Taylor Swift Wonderstruck Enchanted Perfume: The follow up to Taylor Swift's incredible Wonderstruck perfume, Wonderstruck Enchanted was just recently released and smells absolutely amazing. The bottle comes in the same great shape with charms draped around the top and is red, perhaps in honor of her new album. 

NAKED Basics Palette: As a follow up to the infamous NAKED and NAKED2 palettes, Urban Decay has just released the new Naked Basics palette! This palette features 6 completely matte eyeshadows, whether you want a light day eye or nighttime smokey look. This palette is also very small! In pictures, I've seen it compared to the size of an iPhone, yet it has 6 full eyeshadows! I'm dying to get my hands on this for the winter!

Ciate Sequin Manicure Set: Ciate has truly been the "it" brand for nail polish trends this year, in my opinion. Beginning with the caviar manicure back in the spring, they have come out with some great manicure kits. (I actually did a post on the caviar nails here) The latest in their trends is the sequined manicure kit, which looks amazing. Your nails literally sparkle and shine!

Chanel Lipstick in La Caline: This lipstick is part of the Chanel Winter collection and I went out to swatch it today. Ah, it was amazing! I don't like a lot of color on my lips, so I tend to always go for more nudes and pinks, but I've been obsessed with the oxblood trend this year. Chanel came out with a very dark, deep oxblood lipstick, but I'd never be able to brave that and this color is just as gorgeous and following the berry trend, just a lot more muted. 

NARS Kiss Mini Larger Than Life Lip Gloss Coffret: Available at Sephora as a part of the NARS/Andy Warhol collection, this mini lip gloss kit comes with 5 different glosses. Not only do the lip glosses look amazing, but the tin it comes in is absolutely amazing and definitely reusable. 

What is on your wishlist this year?! I'd love to know!

Kiss Your Elbow Nail Polish

Well, hello there! I definitely feel a bit bad for how I've neglected my blog as of late! It started out when my computer was having issues and with tech guys for a week while they went about being Fairy Godmothers and fixing all of my laptop's problems up. Then, I've been so caught up in a new project, that all of my extra time has been devoted to it! I figured since I've gotten everything set up with it now, I can go back into blogging and also introduce you all to my exciting work:

Kiss Your Elbow Nail Polish

"Broncos, Baby"

"A Drop in the Ocean"
Ahh, that's right! I've started my own little shop of nail polishes that I've been creating and working on for the past month. I'm super proud of all of the work I've put into this project and am really happy with how it's going. If you'd like, you can visit my shop (here) and also visit the Facebook page (here).

Otherwise, I'll be back with my regular posts starting tomorrow!! See you all then!

Celebrity CopyCat: Olivia Munn

Photo Sourced Huffington Post

Photo Sourced Huffington Post

Happy Saturday, everyone! I just want to say sorry once again for the lag of posts this week, but I have just been so busy, it's crazy! I should be settled into a routine at this point, though!

One of my favorite posts to write are definitely the "Celebrity CopyCat" ones. I love searching the web and finding recent events that my favorite celebrities have attended and studying their style. Then, trying to find an alternative is just as great! Some are easy to find, while others take quite a bit of time before I'm happy with my result. 

My new favorite show that I've become obsessed with is The Newsroom, which is on HBO Sunday nights. When I say I'm obsessed with the show... I mean that in the most literal way. I love it! The show is truly addicting, along with all of the great characters and plot twists. Aaron Sorkin is a genius writer and they could not have cast any better than they did. Olivia Munn plays one of the main characters in the show, who is a sharp and smart economist. Recently, she has been doing her rounds on talk shows to promote Newsroom, showcasing different styles. My favorite has to be her look she wore at Jimmy Kimmel: a neon pink pencil skirt and sheer, lace top from French Connection.

I decided to recreate this look, but definitely struggled to find a similar top. However, I'm still pleased with the similar look I came up with!

What do you think of this look? Are you an Olivia Munn fan? Or, more importantly, are you a Newsroom fan?!?

Celebrity Copy Cat: Olivia Palermo

I'll be honest, before I saw Olivia Palermo featured in a look by Tanya Burr over at Pixi2Woo, I had no idea who she was! With some research, I found out she was on the show The City. Here's the thing... I used to watch that show! It was quite some time ago, so I'm letting it go, but I thought it was so weird that I didn't remember her!

Besides that, I've fallen in love with her style. At each and every event she attends, or even when she's just going shopping, Olivia knows how to dress. My favorite look from a recent event is featured here, when she was attending the Faberge New York Flagship Opening. Her look is so pretty and fun, perfect for summer! Here is the recreation I came up with for her look.

I hope you like the recreation I came up with! Personally, I am in love with the Steve Madden wedges.

Maybelline Illegal Lengths Mascara

Maybelline Illegal Lengths Mascara
in "Very Black"


Happy Wednesday, everyone! Ah, the week is half over, so only a few more days until the weekend! I'm actually going away today, so I'll probably be lagging on commenting on my favorite blogs, but I'll be sure to catch up on Monday when I'm back home! But I do have this post and a post scheduled for Friday!

In the very beginning of June, I did a review on the Maybelline Great Plush Mascara. That mascara is the newest, and has gotten some quite good reviews by a lot of beauty gurus on the web and youtube. However, as you'll see in my review, I wasn't a huge fan of the mascara. My quest to find another great mascara was not over, though, and I finally got around to purchasing the Maybelline Illegal Lengths mascara ($8-9). I have heard nothing but great reviews on this mascara since it first came out and I remember seeing Carly Cristman talk about it in one of her videos. I just pushed it off until recently, and boy am I glad I finally got around to it!

This mascara is truly a lengthening mascara through and through. The brush gives incredible length to your eyelashes that I have honestly not had in any of my other mascaras. Also, I was given the idea to combine this lengthening mascara with the Great Plush mascara to see how the results would be:

Wow. The combination of these two mascaras is definitely the combination that I have been using. The Great Plush gives volume, while the Illegal Lengths provides length, leaving my eyelashes exactly where I want them to be. I'm fortunate to have full, long lashes, but these two mascaras definitely emphasize that fact to a new extreme!

Have any of you tried this mascara? What about the Great Plush mascara?

Stila "Fill-Your-Palette" Palette


Dune - Starlight - Kitten
Oasis - Wheat - Golightly

Kitten - Starlight - Dune

Golightly - Wheat - Oasis
Happy Monday, everyone! I honestly can't believe that we're already into the second week of July. Where is the summer going? Over on Pinterest (HotMessInADress), I feel like everyone is pinning autumn outfits of big sweaters, leggings, and boots. In my head, every time I see one of those photos I internally panic and wonder why everyone seems so determined to hurry up and get through summer!

Besides that depressing topic, I was so excited the other day when a package came in the mail for me from Stila! At the end of June, I won one of their contests over on the Stila blog. The prize I won was a 6-pan refillable palette with 6 eye shadows of my choice! I was beyond thrilled to win this, and it finally arrived in the mail last week.

The palette itself is great and sturdy as it's a hard cover that snaps shut, which is great for travelling. I feel like the close is very secure and I wouldn't be worried about it opening and damaging the shadows. The palette is very sleek and small, too, so it's definitely more convenient than the Naked palettes. Unlike the Urban Decay palette, which is very bulky, this palette is very slim and doesn't even seem like it's a refillable. It reminds me of MAC palettes in that sense.

Of course, the eye shadows from Stila are the stars of this show, though. I chose six very neutral shades, which are what I get the most use out of. I just had to include the cult-favorite "Kitten", which I own in the smudge pot form, and is one of my absolute favorites. I was so excited to try the actual eye shadow form, and I can say I was not disappointed. Each of the eye shadows I chose are really great quality and perfect, shimmery nudes. The only matte color I chose was "Dune", while the rest are gorgeous shimmers.

I know that I will get plenty of use out of this palette, and I am just so excited that I got the chance to win this prize. Thanks, Stila!!

PS - Leave your Pinterests in the comments as I've just started really getting into it. I need some new people to follow!

NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil





Happy Friday, everyone! Ah, how much do I love the weekend? A lot! These past few days have been absolutely amazing weather - I absolutely love it! However, I just don't even tan at this point -or burn! - I feel like I just remain pale as pale can be.

I've recently become obsessed with lip products - something I didn't even pay much attention to before. It was always just an after thought, if even that, and chapstick was always my go-to. However, I've recently been discovering some new favorites! While browsing Sephora the other day, I ended up at NARS (surprise, surprise) and I was looking at their lip pencils after hearing great reviews. I ended up choosing one of the velvet gloss lip pencils in "Frivolous".

This color is absolutely amazing! I really love the finish it gives: a natural and glossy look. The pencil is quite sheer, but easy to apply and slides on so smoothly. The best part is probably that it sharpens! I was so excited because I had just hit the end of the product, but I read online that the pencil easily sharpens. I'm going to have to do it this weekend! The packaging for this product is great as it is with all NARS products; the pencil is the perfect size and can easily slip into my clutch or bag. Overall, I have nothing bad to say about this lip pencil! It's been my everyday pick for the past few weeks since I got it and I'm so glad I decided to purchase it. I'm definitely going to stop in Sephora and check out some other shades!

Have you tried any NARS lip products? Any exciting plans for the weekend?

PS - I'm so close to 100 followers! This weekend I'm going to pick something up for a giveaway once I do so keep your eyes peeled!

Celebrity Copycat: Cara Delevingne

Lately, I have been absolutely loving model Cara Delevingne ever since I first saw her in an ad in Vogue for Burberry. Since then, I've loved all of her editorials and runway shows. Just shy of 20, she has been featured in some great ads for Chanel, Burberry, and even ASOS! 

Off the runway, I love Cara's style for when she's photographed on the streets or at events! Here is the recreation I came up with for the first photo. 

Also be sure to check out Who What Where for an article they did last year on Cara Delevingne. There, they recreated four different looks that Cara has worn!

NOTD: Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid Dream



It's Wednesday! With the long weekend, the fact that it's already Wednesday is so exciting! This is my last week of school! Once this week is over, I have 2 days of finals and the year is over! So scary, exciting, yet relieving at the same time.

Last Wednesday, I posted a Wishlist Wednesday. On the top of my list was Deborah Lippmann's "Mermaid Dream". I had seen this polish when it first came out, but decided to put the purchase on hold. However, after that happened, the polish was sold out everywhere and I couldn't get my hands on it! Thankfully, I went back to Nordstrom this weekend, and the polish was back in stock. I bought the polish not 2 minutes after I spotted it!

To get the opacity in the photo, I applied 2-3 coats. However, had I put a green or blue base, only 1 coat would have been necessary. The only thing that doesn't make me absolutely positively love this polish, is knowing how awful it's going to be to take off. I'm thinking that I'll be making quite good friends with my acetone nail polish remover and some tin foil!

Celebrity Copy Cat: Jennifer Lawrence



Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you're having a great Memorial Day Weekend if you're in the US! I'm spending the day attempting to catch up on homework (so exciting...). Anyway, over the weekend I saw these photos of Jennifer Lawrence at the Monte Carlo Grande Prix. I really loved her outfit and became determined to find a replica of what she wore.

'Lo and behold, I was able to find the exact skirt, shoes, and bag she wore!

Tory Burch Handbag
Tory Burch Wedge

I also found what I think is the exact sunglasses she wore. Unfortunately, I could not get it in the Polyvore set. The sunglasses are from ASOS and can be found HERE. 

Overall, I think that this is a great look for summer. The fun and bright orange maxi skirt looks great with a pair of beige wedges and the rope bag is just too cute. 

Let me know if you love this outfit like me! Also, in the comments tell me if you like these kinds of posts! My blog is mainly a beauty blog, but I think it'd be fun to have a consecutive fashion aspect to the blog besides the occasional OotD!

MAC "Hey, Sailor" Collection

Happy Sunday, everyone! If you're in the US like me, I hope you're having a great long Memorial Day Weekend! The weather has been so nice here, too, so it's been a great past few days.

On Thursday, the new MAC collection was released in the US! I was very excited to pick my order up, so after school that's exactly what I did!


Highlight in "Crew" - Eye Shadow in "Jaunty" - Suntint in "Au Rose"


Highlight - Eyeshadow - Liptint

From this collection, I chose three items. I went into the store knowing that I definitely wanted the highlight, which just looked absolutely stunning. In my swatch, the highlight definitely has more of a pink pigment, so I know this will be great as a blush this summer.

Besides the highlight, I had no idea what else I really wanted. When I was swatching the products, the next product to stand out was the eyeshadow in "Januty". A great neutral with some shimmer, I know I am going to love using this as a base for my natural eye look everyday.

The last product to stand out was the liptint. I was very torn with the colors, but I ended up choosing "Au Rose" with the guidance of the counter lady at MAC. I'm glad I ended up choosing this color! It is very sheer once you apply on the lips, but to me, that's perfect. I don't love a lot of color on lips, so this will be perfect for the summer (as I've said with the other two products!) especially as there is SPF!

Are any of you interested in this collection?

Wednesday Wishlist

I am ready for tomorrow to just be here already! Wednesdays are always nice as you're halfway done with the week, but I am so excited to pick up my products from the new MAC collection tomorrow. Plus, I already prepaid with my pre-order, so it feels like I'm getting the products for free (right?! I just need to keep thinking that anyway..).

Besides that, there's been a few products that I've been eyeing recently, and just maybe I'll have to look around this weekend.


Deborah Lippmann's "Mermaid Dream" is on the top of my wishlist. I have wanted this for ages, back when it first came out and you were able to purchase it at your local stores. Ever since then, when I didn't pick it up, karma has kicked me in the butt by having this polish be sold out everywhere I look.


Another polish I'm craving is the new Thakoon for NARS collection. I really love a few of the colors, but to me, Koliary is what stands out. I barely own any blue polishes, yet this shade looks absolutely gorgeous. I can practically hear it calling my name!


Every time I've gone to Ulta lately, these lashes stand out to me. Katy Perry recently released her own line of eyelashes, available at many different drugstores. The "Oh, Honey" lashes stand out the most to me because they look amazing, but also seem wearable; not terribly overdramatic.

Yes, if you can't tell, I'm loving nail polish right now. Despite the moderate-to-bad reviews on Sephora's website, I desperately want to see these in person. I've grown accustomed to the nail polish smell, so I'm dying to see for myself if these live up to their name. It seems so fun!


The last item on my wishlist for now is also the most expensive. And by expensive I mean, "I'll drool in stores over this product, but the likely-hood of me purchasing this stands at a 5%. Max."
For $75, you can be the proud owner of this amazing Guerlain Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Terra Azzurra Bronzing Powder and Blush. The packaging, the product, and the brands are amazing and if only the price tag wouldn't hurt so much, this little guy would have made it in my shopping bag.


Are any of you wishing for these products? If not, what are you wishing for this Wednesday?

My Everyday Spring Makeup

Happy Sunday, everyone! Loving the sunshine today and I went and did a bit of shopping today, which just lifted my mood even more! Yesterday I posted a new YouTube video, showing my everyday look for this spring/summer. The key is light and easy here, as during the summer I'd rather spend my time outdoors rather than in and getting ready.



For foundation, I've been loving Maybelline's Dream Nude Airfoam foundation in 200 Creamy Natural. I actually reviewed this product! The review can be found here: Maybelline Airfoam Review. Overall, the product is a really nice light coverage foundation, perfect for spring.

To powder, I use my trusty Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder in Universal. This powder is perfect for everyone and I absolutely love it. The package comes with a lot of product and definitely worth the money!

For blush, I use Tarte Amazonian Clay in Dollface, a really pretty pink blush with absolutely great pigmentation.

To contour, I use my NARS Laguna Bronzer, which is so pretty. Personally, to contour I use my Real Techniques Blush Brush, and the contour turns out great! I run the bronzer through the hollows of my cheeks, up my temples, and along the jaw line.

A nice highlight, I use MAC's Mineralized Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle along the tops of my cheekbones and just above the upper lip.

Finally, I like to throw on my NARS lipgloss in Baby Doll, a really pretty, shiny, and shimmery pink.



Moving onto my eyes, I love using my Urban Decay Primer Potion to ensure that the eyeshadow will stay on all day. I then use my favorite Stila Smudge Pot in Kitten and apply it all over the lid. Over that, I put on MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow in Summer Haze, which is so pretty!! To finish up the eyes, I'll apply my favorite eyeliner, which is YSL's Cream Eyeliner (a review can be found here: YSL Review). Then, to my waterline I apply the Tarte EmphasEYES inner rim brightener, which is so pretty and perfect. It's much better than a stark white eyeliner, and still widens your eyes. For mascara, I use Clinique's Bottom Lash Mascara and Maybelline's Falsies.

And that is it! My everyday look. I hope you guys enjoy and I'll see you tomorrow!

DIY Ciaté Caviar Nails


Happy Friday! I am so excited to share this post with you all, I've been planning it for a week! I'm not sure, but you may have seen some photos of a new trend that's coming to the nails. Ciaté is a UK brand polish that released a new product they called the "Caviar Manicure". Coming in three shades (black, white, and rainbow), the product came with a base color and the matching beads. This kit is now available at Sephora in the US for $25/set, and I was so excited when I saw it online. However, that price tag of $25?! Crazy! I knew I had to find another way to keep up with the new trend.

Over the weekend I scoured my local Michael's Arts&Crafts to find the perfect looking beads to create my own DIY Caviar Nails. And I'm happy to say I think I succeeded! 



The beads I found are from the brand "Recollections", which I'm sure you can find at any local arts and crafts store. The microbeads came in a case with six different colors for only $10! Amazing!


Now, to create this look, I applied a base coat (I used OPI's San Tan-tonio) and then applied the beads directly onto the accent nail. I waited a few minutes before patting the beads down to settle on the nail. Finally, after waiting about 10 minutes after that, I sealed it all up with a top coat! Simple as that, and I had a really cool nail look that received tons of compliments.

Let me know if you are loving this trend as I am, and if you are, whether you'll splurge on the Ciaté brand or try your own DIY. 


No beads were ingested in the top photograph taken. Except for maybe one. But I tried to wipe them all off as soon as I got a picture I was happy with!

Maybelline Spring 2012


Happy Wednesday! Ah, the week is half over, yet it feels like the past three days have been at least a week and a half. I guess when the weeks get crazy they just tend to drag on and on.

This past weekend I did some damage and went shopping all over. A few things that I picked up was from the new Maybelline Spring 2012 Fashion Week collection. I'd read a few things about this collection already, and I was excited to finally get my hands on it.

Highlight - Blush - Bronzer


I was most excited to try out the bronzer, and I was happy to snag the last one that my Ulta had! I picked it up in the Shade 300, Sunset Rendezvous. It's a really nicely pigmented bronzer that looks great. My only complaint would be that the sparkle overlay doesn't last after a few swipes. I really wish it had gone all the way down into pan!

The next product I picked up was a highlighter, in the Shade 400, Ray of Gold. This product has pretty gold flecks that make for a nice highlight. The product doesn't have great pigmentation, but as it is a drugstore product making it more affordable, I'd recommend this to anyone looking to expand their highlight collection!

The final product I picked up was a blush in Coral Blossom. This seemed to be the darkest shade I could find, yet it is still fairly light! But the great flower design in the middle sold me, as I thought it was just too cute! I think that this blush would work well on paler skin tones, so if that's you, I'd check it out!
