Happy New Year!

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year.  And if you're like me....heres to hoping 2010 is much better than 2009!

For those wondering why I say it like that...short version of 2009

-left my husband of 4 years
-had to declare bankruptcy because of said husband
-still not legally divorced because of pain in the butt said husband
-found out about some serious health problems (maybe I should say potentially serious) which also could be because of said husband...too bad I can't prove it
-been screwed over by guys when trying to date again (beginning to think why bother)

yeah so definantly hoping for a better new year!

Good news....well for me anyway

I've just been accepted to the cosomotology school here in my town.  I start next week and I can't wait!  I've been thinking about this for a while now and finally took the steps to do it.  Even though I've never been a fan of school, I know I'm going to have a blast doing this.  Plus, I can give everyone tips from the insiders.  The school constantly brings in insiders who talk about thier products and even give samples away.  Maybe I'll make a nice giveaway when I collect a few things.  If anyone lives in my area (hint hint :Christy:) and wants to be a guiene pig let me know!

Hard Candy eye shadow

Sorry for lack of posts.  I hoping to post more often.  Anyways.... I'm sure most of you know that Walmart now sells Hard Candy cosmetics.  Well I'm in loooove with their baked eye shadow duos.  The go on nice and smooth and are pigmented enough that a little goes a long way.  I only have a neutral color at the moment but I can't wait to try some of their brighter colors.  I'm hoping to buy other items soon as well.  I'll have to wait until the holidays are over.  Money is being spent of gifts right now. would make a good christmas present for me...(hint hint) :)

Sorry it's been forever!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  I had a bad case of bronchitis and it left me feeling drained and exhausted.  At least it wasn't the flu!  Anyways, I'm in need of some help.  Lately, my face has been extra dry and nothing I've done for it has seemed to help.  Soooo.....if anyone out there can recommend something great I would surely appreciate it.  Thanks so much!  I hope everyone has had an awesome weekend!

KONADomania Giveaway

KONADomania is having a giveaway for 100 followers.  Check it out here to enter and see the prizes.

Hello All,
Well I got tired of waiting on my dad to give me my camera back so I took photos from Rimmel's website for this post.  You can go here to check out their website.
First I want to talk about their quad eyeshadow.  I love these.  You can do so many different looks with them.  For work I generally stick to boring nudes but if I go out, I play with the brighter colors.

The only downside is that they're small so they don't last long.  But they're not expensive at all.
Next for those who love lipgloss, they have a 10 hr duo lipgloss that come in some pretty colors.  You put on the plain color first and then follow with the glittery topcoat.  However, sadly I cannot wear it.  There's something in it that makes my lips blister. :(

And finally I love they're matte finish pressed powder.  I hate the feeling on foundation on my skin.  I feel like I have a mask on.  Luckily I was blessed with great skin so I can get away with just a pressed powder to even out my skin tone.

Well that's it for today.  I promise I will try to post more regularly.  Hope everyone has a great day!

Meet Mark

Hello ladies,

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was kinda uneventful, except for Saturday. Saturday I went with my mom, older brother, and 16m old niece to the JMU football game. Now I hate and I mean HATE football and I hate being cold. So why you may ask did I go to a football game in the cold? Well the answer is simple....I LOVE my niece. I could spend the entire day with her and never be bored. She aims to entertain. And entertain she did. Thankfully everyone else was freezing too so we only stayed through most of the first half. Then Saturday evening, I had a date! :) I met him online, which I must say I wasn't so sure about it at first. I've been out with 2 other guys through this online site and well let's just say they sucked. Maybe it's my guarded heart but this time it will either be 3 strikes and you're out or 3rd times a charm. We'll see....(I'm hoping for 3rd times a charm as this guy is really sweet)

On to a favorite product. I love Mark products. 1. I can actually use them and 2. I love some of the packaging. Plus it is not expensive. I love the hookups. What better way to carry make-up than to have 2 items in 1. You can mix and match the hookups but I usually have like items with like items. Call me weird like that. I don't usually wear lipstick or lipgloss unless it's a special occasion but I love Mark lipgloss. I can't say I have a favorite color but I'm drawn to the pinks ( maybe because pink is my favorite color). They have a lip plumper as well for those of you who like those. I personally haven't tried them. Seeing how I'm allergic to like everything, I'm very careful when it comes to new things. Mark also has a great skin care line. I love the see things clearly face lotion. I also love the freshening spray. It is great on airplanes to keep your skin hydrated, however you have to put it in a smaller spray bottle as it is more than the 3 oz. allowed. Check out all of mark's products at

Well that's it for now. I hope everyone has an awesome monday! Take care

"You make me Smile" award

So I've been awarded the you make me smile award from my bestest friend. Funny thing is I just started this blog but I'll play along. So let see.....I'm supposed to name a song that makes me smile and the blogs that make me smile. Soooo the song that makes me smile right now is actually by Jessica Simpson. It's called "When I loved you like that". I've recently been divorced and this song makes me laugh. It's all about how she basically worship the guy and he neglected her no matter how much she tried to show him affection. And yeah well I understand that. My favorite part is the end where she says go home and make love to her and picture me. I love that part! And soooo true to my life right now. Anyhoo.....blogs that make me smile. Well I don't expect her to repost this but
She is my bestest friend ever!
I love her how-to videos and the stuff she does is amazing.
I love the way she uses color!

Sorry that you can't click on the blogs. I haven't quite figured out this thing yet so to check them out you'll have to copy and paste.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Micabella Cosmetics

Hello Ladies.
I can't believe I'm up already. I am a girl who loves her beauty sleep. There are days when I think I could sleep all day if it were possible. However, life does not allow that. Anyways....I want to tell you about a favorite cosmetic of mine. It's from a company called Micabella. I love that they are free of preservatives yet still come in all sorts of vibrant colors and has flawless coverage. It is a expensive but I believe that you get what you pay for. The best part about their eyeshadow is how diverse it is. You can wear it dry, wet, or mix it with clear gloss or vasaline and you have a beautiful lip gloss. Check them out at or at their blog Well that's it for now. Have a great day!

Hello All

Just starting out with the blogging. When you meet me you wouldn't think that I am obsessed with beauty or beauty products but my bathroom in over flowing with all sorts of products. Seeing me at work I probably don't seem like a girly-girl at all but really I am. I recently got divorced and I must say I let myself go. It all started maybe 2 years ago when my ex told me he didn't have anyone to impress anymoore. Well unfortunantly, I adopted that mantra and well it all went down hill from there. Now that I'm starting over, I guess you could say I'm reinventing myself. Or maybe just going back to my roots. I'm even getting ready to start cosomotology school in Novemeber which I'm very excited about. Since I'm just starting out this is it for now. Later, I'll be writing about my favorite products and whatnot. And if you're like me and allergic to alot then you'll love what I have to say. Take care!
