NOW FOR THE SURPRISE!!!

WHAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTT? IS THAT ALL MY HAIR? No, but that’s the start to my short length. And now that you mention it, I probably shouldn’t have cut it over the sink. Opps.

BEFORE:

IMG_3021_01

AFTER:

Okay, The front looks funky because I didn’t style it correctly (easy fix) BUT I found my way back to a pixie cut after about a year. I got my first one at 17 and now I’m 22, and have cut it short about 6 times? I don’t know why I do, I fucking hate it HAHA. But I needed all of the dead hair gone (thanks to my love of hair bleach), so HOPEFULLY I GROW IT OUT THIS YEAR (I always say that bullshit.. hahahah)

OKAY!!! Those things happened today and I really wanted to share with you guys! ^_^

NEW SKIN CARE! (combo/oily) – Mini (literally) Product Review!!

SOOOO I recently (maybe two/three months ago… oops) got my hands on some samples, and I’ve recently (two weeks.. )started using them all together, to see if my skin would improve! I have combination/oily skin, so I’m pretty scared to put new stuff on my face, but these work SO. WELL. together!

IMG_2717_01

Now, I’ve already mentioned the Cindy Crawford product before, but these little samples are about to make me burn a huge hole in my pocket.

ITEMS FEATURED:

  • Meaningful Beauty Cindy Crawford – Crème de Sérum
  • HONEST BEAUTY – Beyond Protected Daily Fluid (No longer sold.. I’m fucking upset about it)
  • First Aid Beauty – Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum
  • HONEST BEAUTY – Refreshingly Clean Gel Cleanser

OKAY OKAY I KNOW, why post about the HB daily fluid if they don’t have it anymore? Well, so you’re at least able to know what it can do for you and find a product that’s probably a lot better (FIRST AID BEAUTY.. AHEM). Sorry, HB. </3 (I only use a couple of drops of it in the morning with MBCC, so not too much of a loss.)

MORNINGS: I just wash my face with my Biore Baking Soda Liquid Pore Cleanser (shown in a previous post.. buy it here!) and moisturize with MB and the daily fluid. The Meaningful Beauty also works as an amazing foundation primer, so that’s a plus, too!

NIGHTS: I remove my make up with coconut oil, and wipe that off with a damp cloth. I wash my face with the HB gel cleanser, pat dry, and apply a pump of the Meaningful Beauty and a small amount of FAB’s hydrating serum.

BEFORE: I would wake up and my face would be sooo oily around my nose/forehead/cheeks/chin. Now, I wake up and my face is just soft and fresh.. THE BEST FEELING. ❤

It really disappoints me that the daily fluid is no longer available to purchase, but honestly, with what it does, you could probably have better results with FAB’s 5 in 1 Face Cream (SPF 30). I’m DEFINITELY going to be picking some up. One of the problems it helps with is dryness, but with combo/oily skin (primarily oily, though) YOU NEED TO MOISTURIZE YOUR FACE. STOP NOT MOISTURIZING YOUR FACE BECAUSE YOU THINK IT’LL GET WORSE. THAT’S MAKING IT WORSE!!!!!! Trust me, I KNOW. BUT!! This product is OIL FREE!!! so you’re in the clear!

*I will be doing a review on it soon, promise. ❤

Lip Plumper.. WTF (REVIEW)

seriously.. what the fuckIMG_2650

OKAY. So I bought this thing online because it looked similar to CandyLipz, and I wanted big ass Kylie lips. Why? Because I don’t have a fucking top lip HAHA (BLESSSSS LIP LINER).

This thing was like $8? Including shipping, so not bad. Beats $50 no doubt, so if it works MAYBE I could buy the CandyLipz.. but why would I if this works hahah

So, this is what it looks like. It isn’t anything special, just a normal rubber tomato thing. Still fucking weird to me. I guess no different than an apple, sort of. I’m not sure of the other, but the rubber on this one is fairly hard to squeeze at first. It has the little lip placement, pretty simple to figure it out.

It obviously came with it’s own instructions, but my stubborn ass chose to go by the ones online, videos, etc (although they’re almost exactly the same).

I started by drinking water (to keep hydrated.. it felt right) and moisturizing my lips with my rose salve. Nice. I made sure my lips were in the middle of the hole, pushed the tomato in and let it do it’s thing for 2 minutes.. at first. It came out funky to me, so I did it the reversed side to help my top lip out. Oh this fucker hurt haha. BUT my skin is extremely sensitive to pain and other pokes and such (no, it doesn’t poke you). My god did I drool. Everywhere. Even after it told me to not drool into it.

Here are the before/after pictures (sorry, taken on my P.O.S phone). Yes, part of my bottom lip is lopsided HAHA SHUT UP. Assholes. Anyway. The after is so ❤ Just lipstick, no liner!

My lips felt fucking STRAAAAAANNNGGGEEEE oh my god I thought the bottom was gonna fall off hahaha. Towards the end of the night, I got a hickey type mark (normal) but I covered it with makeup. And then my husband saw it the following morning and good lord did I get a LOOK LMAO.

Here are some more:

The one before is a minute or two AFTER the after, and the second is about 4 hours after that.. still full, but not insanely huge.

There’s a rest period of 2 days “required” after the first, most likely to let your lips heal after the traumatic shit you just put them through (for the real one, not this guy), but I may be a stupid ass and try it again after one. Lightly. A little. Sort of. ALRIGHT I’M GONNA DO IT. My lips went down already and I feel as white as my father is. Sorry, Dad.

SOOOO so far I really like this thing, it seems to work as well as the real one. I’m excited to keep using it and keep you guys updated! I’m sure you’ll see in photos, though. 😉

SUNDAY FUNDAY.. sort of

HAPPY SUNDAY17506416_176751742837045_594259347_n

My morning started at 4:15AM, when I decided to finally get out of bed and cook lunch for Ben, since he’s on a 12 hour day schedule now. 😦 So my mornings will be starting at 4AM, groaning at my annoying ass alarm and regretting my choice to go to sleep at midnight.. HEY, SOUNDS LIKE FUCKING COLLEGE ALL OVER AGAIN. I hated college. ANYWAY.

I’m kind of just gonna talk out of my ass for this post, because the time I spent planning it today was interrupted by my love of procrastination and coffee. And more coffee. And fangirling because I was retweeted by my favorite YouTuber. Nice.

FOLLOW UP: Okay, last week I got a waist trainer in the mail. Nice, right? So, After the 3rd day it became more comfortable, which was a plus. This thing is a nightmare, though, as amazing as it is. IT STOPS ME FROM OVER EATING. Like… excuse you I want to stuff my face with these tacos right now. >_> BUT. Because of that, I’ve managed to go from 131.1 to 126.4 this morning. Not bad, not bad. I’ve also had 3/4 inch taken off of my waist, but that may just be coincidental? Either way, pretty awesome. And I got this thing for under $7 (that includes shipping). So.. cool. Hhaha if you guys want one you can get it here. I get a lot of jewelry from this website, just because it’s cute and cheap. It takes awhile to come in (about 2 weeks) but it’s cheap and pretty decent quality, depending on what you purchase.

SPRING LIPS

(Excuse the phone quality..but not the filter. I like that shit)

For this look, all I did was use a nude lip liner (NYX SUEDE), Katy Kat Matte in Cosmo Kitty and Milani Matte Color Statement in Catwalk Pink (I love the cat theme here.. sassy). It was pretty easy to blend the edges, I just used the Good Karma Multi-Tasker brush from Urban Decay, and some lip action. 😉 Fuck I’m so lame.

Of course, on my favorite blanket. ❤

ON ANOTHER NOTE

I’ve beenprimarily becoming a beauty blogger? Not sure if I’m into that, so I’ll start venturing out of my apartment more, like I used to. But, for now, photography and beauty/fashion.. which isn’t a bad thing. 🙂 I do try including things from my day to day life on my Instagram, though.. but still kinda the same HAHA.

Anyway
