Sephora Color Diary

Hello Loves!
My Sephora (Amazon order) package came in the mail today! I was so excited and it's everything I hoped it would be! There are 5 individual palettes and then a small carrying case , each of the palettes pop out & fit into in so you can take them on the go! They each come with 6 eyeshadows, 1 blush & 1 lipgloss.
(From bottom left to bottom right: Hot Date at Eight, Relax & Unplug, Must get New Shoes, Meditation Retreat & Day at the Museum)
This is my favorite of the 5 (Meditation Retreat). I LOVE the bottom right green. Oh it is GORGEOUS!
This is a close second (Must get New Shoes). First, I love the name. Second, I love the lipgloss color.

Swatches of the lipgloss from each set.

My awesome dinner this evening. I have been craving really good sushi lately & I can never pass up General Tso's Chicken! So much for my diet today!

I'll be playing with these palettes the next few days & since I finally got to the doctor's and started taking antibiotics, I won't be ashamed to show my sicky face!
Have a great night!

Christmas Gifts to Myself!

Happy Wednesday!
So, I took full advantage of my Christmas money and bought myself some new clothes! I purchased everything from Forever 21. I do have Forever 21 in the local mall but i HATE going in the becaise it always looks like a tornado just rolled through. I usually shop online or print the SKU & picture and take it to the store and have an associate help me find everything.
I'll show you some of the goodies I purchased:
I tried this dress on in the store and I wasn't sure about it so I put it back. I kept thinking about how much I liked it and since I had a coupon I ended up buying it. It was originally $29.80 & I paid $25.82. Overall, I really like it. I cannot wear it as a dress, I have long legs & it is entirely too short. It barely covers my butt!

I love little dresses like this with leggings in the winter. The ruffles make it so feminine! It's a steal for $14.50!
Fab Ruffle Layers Contrast Dress

Another steal for $13.50! I loves this with a black belt on the waist & leggings!
Splatter Bodycon Tunic

I got this cardigan in white, black & chocolate. You can never have enough cardigans. I love the puff sleeve, so cute! They were only $7.50 each!

I got a lot of hair accessories and jewelry as well. I'm really into big cocktail rings this year so I've been stocking up on them.
I also forgot to mention that Dustin bought me Donkey Kong for Wii for Christmas! Best gift ever!!!! I used to (and still do) play Donkey Kong on Super Nintendo and I got the chance to play it on Wii in Game Stop before Christmas!
Have a great day!

My 2011 Challenge

Hi Dolls,
Starting January 1st, I'm going to do a little challenge of my own. I'm going to wear a different pair of shoes every day until I run out & see how long I can go. I'll TRY to update a picture of my outfit each day so you can take a look. I'm really excited, I have so many nice pairs of shoes that I never wear. And I'm going to keep track on a calender to make sure I don't double any pairs of shoes.
Hopefully, I'll get a chance to do some makeup looks but I caught the cold that has been going around, so I've been doped up on Nyquil and exhausted. I have a bunch of new makeup coming & I ordered the brushes that Kandee had on her blog. (Crown Brushes) I needed a new set of brushes & you can't beat $29.99. I got the bronze snakeprint case. I cannot wait to recieve it. I also got a gift card from a client for Amazon (which I always use for new makeup!). So I ordered The Sephora Color Diary Set. I am can't wait to get it in the mail!

I'll update soon!
Are you ready for 2011?
Have a great day,

Weightloss & the Holidays!

Hi Everyone!
So, as fun & lovely as the Holidays were I am excited for 2011!
You've probably seen in previous posts that I am trying to lose weight before our wedding in October 2012. Well., I have managed to drop 11 pounds since September. But it takes lots od dedication & willpower. I allowed myself to have Christmas weekend as "free" days. I was stressing because I was afraid that I would get derailed & not be able to get on track. I'm actually excited to be eating healthy today. I had the worst time trying to sleep, it felt like I had a brick sitting in my stomach, I had terrible heart burn & when I woke up my stomach hurt so bad. Plus I was afraid to weigh myself, but I'm only up 1.3 lbs. Considering I pretty much ate an entire apple pie by myself, I'll take it!
I'm trying to be down 5 more pounds by the end of February & I have to increase my exercise because I'm barely working out now. And hopefully I'll drop another 15-20 lbs by June. I have my eye on this gorgeous (and expensive) bikini from Victoria's Secret & Dustin has agreed if I hit my goal weight he'll buy it for me as a "reward". So, after New Years, I'm back on the grind!
What are your 2011 goals!?
Have a lovely Monday! :-)

Hey Loves!
I finally got the chance to do some shopping for myself! Okay, I actually did A LOT of shopping for myself over the past 2 weeks. But I have to have new stuff around this time of year!
Did I mention I got 8 pairs of shoes for Christmas?
Um, I should go to shoe rehab!
I got lots of fun stuff today, mainly accessories which you can never have enough.
How adorable is this eather hair band? I seriously want to wear it every day!
I've been wearing heavy eye makeup lately. No idea why?
Can you believe it will be 2011 in a few days! Where did this year go!?
Peace & Love,

Stink bugs?

Have you ever seen a stink bug? Um.. I have A LOT. There's been an infestation where I live. They aren't even from here, they are from Asia? Wtf are the doing in PA!? Seriously, I counted 21 in my bedroom this morning. Thy aren't harmful, they just fly around and when they get aggravated they emit this TERRIBLE scent. Of course, my cats have been going crazy chasing after them. Every one I catch gets flicked outside!
Here is one on my blind. BASTARDS!
I did a smoky eye, my camera is the worst. Plus, I only did one eye... I'm super lazy tonight! I'll show you but the pictures are crap!
Do NOT judge my eyebrows! I have not had time to wax or tweeze them and they are wiggity whack!

Have a great night!
