Midnight Manicures + My Outfit

Image
It's the end of the day and as you're getting ready for bed you realize your nails certainly needs some work. You suddenly find yourself painting your nails at midnight when you should be sleeping. Friday night my sister and I were preparing for a wedding which was on Saturday night. My sister and her friends found a nail bar that was open until midnight so they insisted that we go, so we went out for a midnight adventure. It was the first time going to this place so I wasn't sure about it at first but it was nice and not crowded so it was fast. It

I got a light pink color on my hands called Italian Love Affair by Opi.

I got a Peppermint Day Dream pedicure. On my toes I got a nude, taupe color called Barefoot in Barcelona  by OPI. (I forgot to take a picture after my toes were painted)

Just an extra little thing, here is my outfit! I love my butterfly shirt, I have worn it so much since a bought it a few months ago. And of course, my black quilted Sperrys! The links to all…

Bath and Body Works: Italian Piazza Home Fragrance Collection

Image
Hello everybody!

Sorry I've been MIA for a couple days. It's close to the end of the semester so there were tests all week! As you know, I have been going through this candle phase so I thought so I thought I'd tell you about one of the newest home fragrance collections at Bath and Body Works called Italian Piazza. This came out earlier on the month, there are a total of 7 candles in this collection.  It actually came out in test stores in the beginning of March.  I have just smelled these in the store while on the hunt for candles in the past few months. I haven't bought any, although I probably will soon! So what I am going to do is list the seven candles and let you know what I thought about them when I smelled them in the store. I'll link some YouTube videos below my descriptions that explains each candle better and lets you know a little more about how they burn!

Limoncello: It is a lemon scented candle, I'm not a fan of lemony candles so I didn't like …

OOTN + Eye Makeup

Image
I've already shown you my everyday makeup but sometimes I like to change up my eye makeup. I tightlined my eyes with a black gel liner from Mary Kay. Then lined my waterline and the inside corners of my eyes with a white pencil liner to brighten my eyes. I like to use a matte white eye shadow all over the lid so that the colors I use over it will be more pigmented. Over the white I used a dark shimmery purple by Estee Lauder all over the lid. To add some depth, I used a dark brown matte shadow in the crease by Mary Kay called Espresso. Last but certainly not least, mascara.

OOTD: Denim on Denim

Image
I have lots of pictures today. I did a denim on denim look with a bright flower necklace and some nude wedges for my grandpa's birthday this evening. The denim looking top has hidden buttons and is actually brushed cotton! I did some dark purple eyeshadow with black liner and nude lips. I had a few other outfit ideas so I added all of those pictures! Tell me what you think! :)

Top 5 Eyelash Curlers by hannahgomez featuring shiseido
Honestly eyelash curling is not a part of my makeup routine. I don't even think I have owned an eyelash curler. I'm not sure why, but I guess I need to get one now! What I do know is that the cheaper ones will pinch your lids or break off your lashes. I did some researching to find the best of the best for you! What I found is that they are all made a little different.It has to fit your eye perfectly for you to get the best results. The curlers pictured above seemed to work for everyone.These aren't really ranked, I numbered them so I can refer to them. 
1. Kevyn Aucoin: This runs about $20 and you can get it at higher end department stores like Nordstrom and Barney's. 
2. Shu Uemura: This is also about $20. This seems to fit all eye shapes and is easy to hold. It was voted best 2013 eyelash curler by InStyle. 
3. Chanel: You can also get this at Neiman Marcus or Nordstrom. This is the most expensive of the 5 running …

Burberry Body Rose Gold

Image
Yesterday I did some shop therapy and ended up getting the Burberry Body Rose Gold perfume. This is a limited edition one. The only difference in this one and the original is the packaging. The limited edition bottle is gold and the original is It is about $95 for the 2.8 oz for both the limited edition and original. I found it at TJ Maxx for $59.99 these stores are only in America but there is something called TK Maxx for those in Europe and Winners for whose in Canada (They are all run by the same company). I have had me eye on this for a while but haven't purchased it because it is so different than what I would normally get but there is just something about it! I would describe is as a very feminine, sensual and luxurious fragrance. The lasting power is quite amazing and the scent is not overpowering. I usually pick the bright floral fragrances. This one is floral but there is a warmth to it. It is a blend of wormwood, peach, freesia, iris, sandalwood, rose, cashmere wood, van…

Bridal Shower Attire Assistance

Image
The cold months have gone and wedding season is upon us! Bridal shower attire is almost as hard as choosing a dress as a guest of a wedding. If you keep up with my posts you know I went to a bridal shower over the weekend! I hope this helps those of you who are wanting some direction. About the same rules apply as if you were going to a wedding. Let the bride shine. This time is for the bride and not for you to compete with the rest of the guests. It is okay to wear some white to the shower. I did an OOTD Bridal Shower post, you can see what I wore. I stuck with black and white and added a  bright colored necklace. On the invitation it will have important information that will help you choose your outfit. Sometimes it even tells you what to wear. If not, ask other people what they are wearing, there's nothing wrong with that! When choosing your outfit, find out the location and the weather, wear something accordingly. Most are inside someones home or a restaurant. If it is outside w…
