NYX Pin-Up Tease Mascara review


Back a few months ago I unfortunately got pink eye from work again. Yay me! Not! I had to throw a lot of eye products out - sad me :( Since I had to buy a new mascara I decided to pick up something new. I stopped at CVS to look through what NYX had to offer. I picked up Pin-up Tease Mascara, click down below to see how I liked this!

Sale Alert! - Victoria Secret and Fall Treats HAUL

Purchased. 

Victoria Secret sent me an email "Do Laundry...or get new 7 for $26.50 panties." I have to say that Victoria Secret is a mind reader. I got an email yesterday and today is laundry day! I did both!! 

I have to say looking for deals is a new addiction for me, honestly I got so happy when I saw that. I also got a follow up email that between 10am and 12pm they were doing 8 for $26.50!! It was such a good deal I couldn't pass it up. I know that's a bit pricey for underwear but it's the cuteness and quality I'm paying for. When the underwear is usually 5 for $26.50 they do 8 it's a must do! 

Another great thing about Now until Sept 1st is that you get DOUBLE angel points on all panties!! That means I have 52 points, which puts me that much closer to my angel reward money!! 

I picked up these pretties! 

Victoria secret cotton panty sale, 8 for 26.50, Bath and Body works Fall, Fall scents,

If Shopping online use code: PARTYON for 7 for $26.50 panties. 

I also couldn't not stop at the outlet Bath and Body Works that was conveniently only 4 stores away in the mall. I also had a coupon code for a mystery discount. It ended up giving me a 36% off discount.

I got a new wall freshener for Fall as well as the two packs one sale for $6.99. Also my favorite fall candle minis were on sale for $1.99 which I couldn't say no to. I used my Angel card which also got me 17 more points! 


I think I did pretty well for myself today! I love sales! Did anyone catch any good sales lately?

I'm in the process of trying to grow out my hair. I'm tried of bob/shoulder length hair. It's hard to grow your hair out when every time you get a trim you're cutting at least a half of inch of split ends. I decided to give this a whirl to help me grow out my hair.

With foundation not being my strong suit I broke down and paid a visit to my local MAC store to help me find the perfect foundation for my engagement photos.  I was recommended Stuido Fix Fluid click down below to see if this is a match!

July Favorites: 2014

I'm on the slow side, work at both my jobs have been a bit crazy! I've been trying to go a more natural route for myself. Investing in my skin care. While I attempted to do that my skin broke out! Go figure! Below are some of my monthly items that I've been favoring!

Wen Summer Honey Peach,Whish hair inhibiting gel ,Chella highlighter pencil,Hard Candy Baked Bronzer in  Tiki ,Urban Decay Supercurl mascara ,Physican Formula Mineral Airbrushing

As everyone knows by now for my love of Wen I bought the seasonal scent Wen Summer Honey Peach, and I'm utterly in love! This is my favorite scent by far! Blows fall apple spice right out of the water! I love the way it makes my hair feel nice and clean afterwards. Since there is no menthol in this my scalp doesn't tingle which I kind of miss that feeling. My only other complaint is that on next day hair my ends feel a bit dry, but that's nothing a little oil or replenishing mist can't fix.

This summer I've been using the Whish hair inhibiting gel to help extend the life of my shaves which I truly believe that it works.  I do apply it twice a day morning and night. While the directions just say to apply after shaving. I get a few extra days between shaving after I've been using this for about 3 weeks. Legs feel super soft too!!

I finally got a sample of Chella highlighter pencil I've been lusting over in one of my birchbox orders that I added the two free samples to. I have to say I'm not sure if I'll repurchase this when it runs out. I feel eh about it.

Hard Candy Baked Bronzer in 129 Tiki is an awesome highlighter not so much of a bronzer. This has too much shine and shimmer in it to be a bronzer. It gives a champagne glow which I love!

Urban Decay Supercurl curling mascara waterproof - I originally tried this with a eyeshadow kit years ago, but never repurchased. I remembered liking it so while in Ulta I picked up a travel version of it since they ran out of the travel version of Benefit They're Real.  I still like this a lot gives great curl, not lasting all day though but not as much as I love Benefit They're Real. I will pick this up again if they don't have They're Real. It's a great substitute!

Physican Formula Mineral Airbrushing Pressed Powder in Translucent I bought this as a way to be nicer to my skin since it's talc-free. It broke me out. It took me about 2 weeks to figure out that this was the culprit since this is supposed to be better for your skin. I should have known better since bare minerals breaks me out too! I'll have to try a different powder.

A side note I got my nails done for Vacation coming in two days at the salon and I'm obsessed! Does anyone know where I can buy OPI Gel polish? I need this shade in gel form!!
