Hello… are you still there?

20 Aug

Hello.

I’m not sure if anyone even bothers to check up on me here anymore.
I don’t blame you.

I suck at blogging.
I suck at commitment.
I suck.

I wont bother making excuses, I do it time and time again.

BUT.. if anyone is reading… I need inspiration. I want to blog, I want to make videos. I just have no idea what to produce.
I feel like makeup/beauty related blogs & videos are really overdone at this point, but I also enjoy & work in the industry so I’m torn.

I also dabbled in vlogging for a bit this summer, but frankly I don’t think my daily life is interesting enough. 😅

(here’s the latest video I posted if interested)

ahhh. enough with the rambling.
Let me know what you want to see!

Thanks For Reading!

MIA. Mexico.

20 Jun

Yes I’ve been gone a while. There is no (real) excuse for my absence.

Instead of excuses, I’ll just share a vlog with you.

Smelly and I went to Mexico, Here’s a video of it:

 

Love you guys, Thanks for sticking around even though I’ve failed at blogging. <3333

Work outs & French toast.

25 Sep

Hello hello,

A few weeks ago I was contacted by influenster (voxbox) to take part in a Victoria’s secret sport campaign and I was happy to participate!

Victoria’s Secret has completely revamped their sportswear line and I’m happy that I got to try a few pieces out because I am now thoroughly convinced that I have found my new favorite sports bra!

IMG_4477.JPG

I have recently been back in the gym on a consistent basis and watching my calorie intake after gaining a few lbs over the past few months.. So I have to admit that I am a little self conscious posting these photos, but I do hope you will be kind.😉

Here I am!

As you can see the shorts can be worn high or low waisted (if rolled down), they also contain a handy dandy hidden inside pocket! 😊

The sports bra is my first love though because it has padding!!!
Usually sports bras completely flatten my breasts leaving me boobless (literally).. So as a small chested girl, I appreciate still being able to have a lil sumthin sumthin in my gym clothes! 😁

I’ve worn this Victoria Secret sport combo to the gym a few times now and I honestly have no complaints!

**segue**

After the gym smelly and I tend to go for brunch at a local diner (pig life never dies ha!), this particular Saturday I chose to get french toast.

IMG_4399.JPG

‘Twas delicious!

Then we headed home to shower and get ready for a day out.

This was my FOTD:

I’ve been skipping eyeliner as well as shadow in favor of just mascara these days, I’m enjoying the softer look as well as the time I save applying my makeup before going out.🙂
(Is this a sign of getting old?😩)

I’ll be back with another post this weekend!
I may even break out my camera.. Iphone blogs are nice and convenient, but I have to admit that the quality just isn’t the same.

Thanks For Reading!! ❤️

This is a sponsored blog post. Influenster provided me with complimentary Victoria’s Secret products to test and review as part of a contest.

Okay, so maybe this isn’t current.

Yes yes, I said that I would blog current life events but I honestly worked so much last week that I had no time!
So here is a blurb from last, last weekend..

‘Smelly and I honestly didn’t do much, so I don’t know why I’m even bothering to blog this but I have photos (so there’s that) 😂’

I started the weekend off working an event for 10 hours on Saturday.. It was tiring but I enjoy what I do..

IMG_4200.JPG
Also the gratis was nice as well.😉

Sunday smelly and I hit the gym (of course) then we headed to his moms house to spend some time with her before she heads out of the country.

These photos happened purely because I enjoy taking photos of Kobè the goldendoodle.😊

The three of us went out for a lovely dinner. (Sorry my photos aren’t the greatest, I was ravenous)

IMG_4250.JPG

IMG_4253.JPG

I also managed to take a photo of my outfit during a bathroom trip.😉

IMG_4295.JPG

And I guess I’ll end this post with more photos of Queen Kobè nomming on a soup bone at the end of the night.

A typical Sunday.

12 Sep

IMG_4187.JPG

My Sundays are typically spent winding down from a 6 day work week.

This past one Smelly & I hit the gym then headed to a diner for a post workout breakfast binge.

IMG_4112.JPG

*pancakes are my weakness* 🐷😊

Afterward we went to a driving range to test out his new set of golf clubs.. I personally know nothing about golf and I wasn’t very good at it but he enjoyed himself and I did as well.🙂

I also came across a diet coke with my name on it:

IMG_9381.JPG

I didn’t fall prey to this marketing gimmick though and left my name imprinted soda on the shelf where I found it. Hehe (I also prefer not to share)😉

That’s all I have for today, as I have an event to work early in the morning!

Thanks for reading!! ❤️

Ps. This is my last backdated post, in the future they will be current. ^.^

Labor Day weekend.

11 Sep

IMG_4133.JPG

Soooo Labor Day weekend was almost 2 weeks ago but I’m going to share what I did with you anyway. 😉

With that said, I don’t expect my holiday weekend to be super interesting to most. Haha 😂

Smelly and I started the weekend off by going to his parents place to spend the afternoon with his mom. (Which is always a good time!)

But before we left, I took a few selfies of course.😉

IMG_4127-0.JPG

IMG_4124-0.JPG

Sadly I didn’t take any full body photos, I was dressed like a 12yr old, it was great. Lol

When we arrived at smelly’s parents house his mom mentioned that she got a Halloween costume for Kobè (the family dog), but she wasn’t sure if it would fit her.. So we gave Kobè a costume fitting!

IMG_4140.JPG

She’s a crayola crayon! How stinkin cute right!??

She told us that she got the costume at homegoods so being the crazy dog parents that we are, smelly and I headed straight there afterwards to get Mochi a costume as well!

Can you guess which costume we chose??

IMG_4141.JPG

IMG_4142.JPG

😂😂 that’s right! Our baby will be a lobster this year!!
This is so hilariously cute & Mochi seems to enjoy it too!

❤️❤️

The following day (Sunday) we decided to relax and play video games [yes as an adult couple we enjoy playing xbox 😏] but on Monday, which was Labor Day, smelly announced that he was taking me on a surprise date! 😊

IMG_4131-2.JPG

Sssselfie

He took me on a mini road trip to Longwood Gardens! (Link provided for those who don’t know what it is) but it’s basically a giant garden made up of smaller gardens..

IMG_4136-0.JPG

IMG_4137-0.JPG

IMG_4138-0.JPG

For some reason, these lily pads were my favorite thing of the day! *shrugs*

IMG_4139-0.JPG

Unfortunately I didn’t take many pictures because being that I had no idea where we were headed, I didn’t think to bring my camera and my poor phone was nearly dead on arrival.:-/

But I will say that it was beautiful and I had a wonderful time. It was nice to be able to have enough of a break from work to go on a leisurely date with my luv.. Outdoors in gorgeous weather nonetheless! Wouldn’t trade that moment for the world. 😊

❤️❤️

And that was my Epic Labor Day weekend!!!
Okay, so maybe it wasn’t “epic” but it was enjoyable to me. 🙂

I’ll be back tomorrow with another post..

Thanks For Reading!!

Yes, I remember.

10 Sep

I didn’t forget about today’s post..
I ended up going to the gym after work today and things got carried away.
*Basically I am exhausted* and I have to be up at 5am for work. 😖

I’ll post what I originally wanted to put up today, tomorrow. 😋

Thanks for reading!!

My new hair color.

9 Sep

So.. If you follow me on either Instagram or tumblr then you may already know this, but for those of you that don’t… A few weeks ago I took my hair a bit darker.

IMG_3868.JPG
( The collage above is my hair wet, Reposting from Instagram because that just makes this backdated post thing a lot easier 😉)

And here is my hair dry:

IMG_3869-0.JPG

IMG_3873-0.JPG

IMG_3878-0.JPG

IMG_3879-0.JPG

IMG_3884-0.JPG

How’s that for a photo spam eh?

As you can see it isn’t a *drastic* change from the super blonde hair I had for the majority of this year, but it’s a noticeable one.

Initially I was going to grow my hair out from the blonde naturally, but I started to hate the way the stark contrast between my dark roots and my super blonde ends looked. 😩

So I decided to take my entire base color darker (roots are one shade lighter than my natural color) and add lowlights as well as a few highlights framing my face.
I really like the way it turned out and now my hair is free to grow in peace.

Thumbs up for zero color maintenance!!! 😊

IMG_3882.JPG

I promise that I’ll have another post up tomorrow..

Thanks for reading! ❤️

Uh.. Hi, hello. I’m sorry. -.-

8 Sep

Yes yes. I fell off the bandwagon yet again. 😞
I’ve been in the process of moving into a new place and starting/getting used to a new job(s).

Anywhoo.. I do plan on continuing my blog. I actually have a few backdated drafts that were never posted from the past few weeks but I’m not sure if I should post them all separately or if I should’ve condense them all into one big post?? I’ll figure it out I guess..

But in the meantime I want to thank who ever is bearing with me and sticking around despite my flakiness.. The past year has been busy (and stressful) for me!

I hope to get my act together and update this space more.. Xx

Thanks for reading!

L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara Review ♥

13 Jun

Hello beauties,

First off: No, I did not forget about my blog again, haha. Unfortunately I had some personal as well as computer issues going on for the past 2 weeks or so… But now that my laptop is back from the shop and my mood is pretty dandy, I have returned!😉

A few weeks ago I came across and purchased the new L’Oreal “Miss Manga” Mascara. I was really excited to try this out as L’Oreal happens to be my go to drugstore brand when it comes to mascara, voluminous being my absolute favorite.

mangalash 006e

mangalash 010e

mangalash 0852e

Isn’t that packaging to die for? ^.^

Here’s what L’Oreal has to say about their new mascara:

For the first time, L’Oreal Paris creates a flexible brush with a unique conical shape to catch those hard to reach lashes with an incredibly even application. The Mega Impact Formula instantly builds oversized volume for 15X lash volume in a flash. Top lashes are amplified and bottom lashes maximized for the ultimate wide-eyed Manga Look.

.. Time to see if this mascara is as awesome as it claims to be!

My lashes without mascara:

mangalash 017e

My lashes with 1 coat of miss manga:

mangalash 038e

My lashes with 2 coats of miss manga:

mangalash 048e

mangalash 050e

mangalash 058e

First impression video:

I am in love!!! This mascara has honestly impressed me.

My lashes were lengthened, and voluminous!

This was made to clump, and I love that.. how else do you expect to get full manga like lashes?

As far as wear time goes, I wore this mascara for over 12 hours this day and I didn’t experience any flaking or smudging.

I have worn “miss manga” since then for the same amount of time (and longer) and the results are consistent Awesome.

This is certainly my new favorite mascara and I’m sure I will repurchase it in the future.

~~

Have you tried this mascara? Do you love it,  hate it? Let me know!

Thanks For Reading!! ♥
