The Beauty Scenario Tag

Q.  You have to get rid of all your foundations except for one high end and one drugstore. What do you keep?

A.  Makeup Forever HD Foundation and Neutrogena Healthy Skin.

Q.  You go in for an interview and the woman interviewing you has lipstick on her teeth do you ignore it or tell her.   

A.  Ooh, that's always so awkward!  Probably ignore it!  That or pass it off nonchalantly, like as we are ending the interview and standing up to shake hands just be like 'oh I think you've got a little something there.' Blow it off and act like it was nothing. 

Q.  You go back in time to your teenage years. How would you do your hair and makeup differently?

A.  Oh my Gawd. I'd do them both 100% different. I would embrace my wild and unruly hair, instead of always fighting it. Wild and wavy, long and loose curls.  As far as makeup goes,  I wish I knew how to properly bronze and contour back in the day, as it adds so much to your makeup look.  I also went thru an incredibly awkward phase with overly arched brows, I would definitely love to go back and change that for sure!

Q.  You go to your stylist and ask for a shoulder length pixie lock haircut but they hear you wrong and give you a pixie cut. Do you:
A) smile and leave and say thank you and go call your mom and cry 
B) cry in the chair and things get awkward
C) complain to the manager and demand a refund

A.  Ooh, that's a tough one.  Hopefully I would notice if they were preparing to chop my hair off, or at the very least catch on after just a clip or two.  But if I didn't, I can't lie, it would probably be B - cry in the chair.  I wouldn't be rude to anyone, but it would be utterly heartbreaking if I ended up with a boy haircut.  I have a feeling it just wouldn't look right on me, and you are talking YEARS growing your hair back out.  I wish I had the face for barely there hair, but I don't.

Q.  Your friend surprises you with a 4 day city break.  Which do it all makeup palette do you pack in your bag?

A.  My Z Palette that I am currently working on - it has a little bit of everything in it (eyeshadow, bronzer, blush, etc)

Q.  Your house has been robbed, don't worry everyone is safe but your beauty stash has been raided what is the product you really hope is safe?

A.  Ooh....all of it???  It would be upsetting, but things are things and as long as the people I love are safe, it would actually not be earth-shattering to me.  The products I would worry the most about losing would be anything limited edition or no longer in production.  Stuff that you can't just go out and replace (some MAC lipsticks and pigments that were LE, my Tarte holiday 2013 blush palette, and even my LE Wet n Wild palettes.)

Q.  Your friend borrows your makeup and returns it in awful shape, do you:
A) pretend you haven't noticed it
B) ask them to replace it or
C) secretly do the same thing to theirs

A.  This one is easy, I would definitely choose B - ask them to replace it.  I was taught not to borrow things from other people, so I simply don't do it.  I just think if you really want something, work and buy it.  When someone borrows your stuff it's almost always a hassle, and you end up being the bad guy having to ask for your stuff back, and then it's just weird.  But, if I did let someone borrow something that I worked for and owned and they had the nerve to return it damaged, I wouldn't hesitate to be up front about it and ask for it to be replaced.  Straight up.  Plus, if you do borrow something from someone, taking care of that item while it's in your possession is your responsibility.  Period.

BIG Forever 21 Haul!

Hey guys! Thought I'd share with you a few clothing items I have recently purchased from F21.  I am a little obsessed with their pajamas, and well, their clothing overall.  I will link what I can in case you guys are interested in grabbing some of this stuff for yourself.  You'll also see how I took a too-tight nighty and made it an adorable tank top!  I am a size 14, so I can shop in both the regular sizes and plus sizes with Forever 21.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Sweet Dreams PJ Set

I Need My Beauty Sleep PJ Set

My Sparkle PJ Set

Coffee BFF Nightdress

If you are a busty girl like myself, (DD's or larger), then this is too tight in the chest area to wear as a nighty. 

I thought this was too cute to just send back or give away, so instead I just cut the bottom of it off and will use it as a tank top.  Throw this and a long/drapey cardigan and some skinny jeans and you've got yourself one cute outfit!

Open Knit Batwing Cardigan

Festive Folk Legend Cardigan

Morning Person Slub Knit Tank
(couldn't find it anymore to link it, sorry)
...and, I actually am!  I will wear this anyway tho (:

Love Life Tank
(It says "Love What You Do, Do What You Love")

Floral Self-Tie Headwrap
(I couldn't find this exact one, but there are tons of similar ones on their site.  This one has an elasticized back, and the bunny ears of it, or whatever, have wires so you can shape it how you want it)

American Flag Heart Sunglasses
I love patriotic/flag print stuff, I love heart print sunglasses, put the 2 together and BAM!  Great, cheap sunnies that will be perfect next 4th of July!

Grocery-Drugstore Haul!

Hey guys!  Here's a handful of products I grabbed today at the grocery store and at Rite Aid.  It seems I was running out of some of these basic everyday items, all at the same time!

Pictured:  Tone Body Wash in Ocean Therapy
Pond's Luminous Clean Face Wash
Herbal Essence Naked Dry Shampoo
Crest 3D White Luxe Toothpaste
Aveeno Skin Relief Shower & Bath Oil
VO5 Salon Series Total Recovery Deep Conditioning Hair Mask

One of the body washes I had in the shower.

If you follow my blog at all then you know I am crazy about oils on my body, in my hair, on my face, etc.  After my shower I almost always use the Neutrogena Light Sesame Body Oil (big 16oz size), but my grocery store didn't have it.  I grabbed a bottle of the Aveeno oil instead.  I have used that one numerous times, and have always enjoyed it as well.

This was the toothpaste I had been using.

It's also Crest 3D White, but it was the regular one in Artic Fresh.  This will be my first time using the Luxe one...I guess we'll see how they compare.

Okay, so maybe I wasn't out of everything I purchased.  A gal can never have enough dry shampoo though, right???

Have a great week, everybody!

OOTD: Quick and Comfy Summer Church Look

Hey guys!  Quick post on my super easy church look today.  I got carried away this morning and only had about 25 minutes to get ready for church by the time I noticed what time it was!  In situations like that maxi dresses are a great option!  One article of clothing and BAM, you are done!  I love maxi dresses anytime, but I think they are especially great for church because they are modest and keep everything covered and so forth.  Plus, it's like sitting there in your nightgown.  #cantbeatthat

Super soft and natural makeup, and a statement necklace for that extra little something.  I washed my hair last night and went to sleep with it wet.  Didn't have too much time to do anything to it this morning, so I just wrapped 2 or 3 sections in the front around a curling wand, gave it a couple of sprays of a volumizing dry shampoo, and was out the door!

My makeup today:  Makeup Forever HD Foundation, Neutrogena Shine Control Powder, Nars Laguna Bronzer, MAC Peaches Blush, Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal, Anastasia Brow Wiz, Elizabeth Mott Eyeshadow in Champagne, Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Cocoa Bear, Rimmel Glam Eyes Mascara, Nars Honolulu Honey Lipstick, YSL Golden Gloss in #20 Golden Macadamia, Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

I found this beautiful statement necklace at Wal-Mart and it was only $9!  This is so pretty and it looks so much more expensive in person.

Coral/tangerine colored maxi dress is from Target.  This one is SUPER long!  I am 5'8" and it is hard to find maxi dresses that literally come all the way down and drag the floor on me.  This one does it.  Also, you have no idea how hard it is to get all 5 feet 8 inches of yourself in a selfie.  This shot was dang near impossible, lol.

This is how long the dress is when I stand and look down at my feet.


I paired the dress with these silver Bakers Sandals that I've had for like yearssssss.

Hope you guys are enjoying this rainy & stormy Sunday!  Be safe and keep your heads dry - xoxoxo!!!
~God Bless~
