Recently I went into Walmart and i saw that Wet n Wild had a few new bits on display. Of course, I am a huge fan of their wallet friendly prices so i picked up some bits. First I picked up make up wipes called Under The Sheets make Up Wipes for under 3 dollars. I have noticed that make up wipes have started being really expensive so when I saw these I figured I'd give them a go. So far, I've been liking them. They are not drying and aren't irritating. Next, I picked up the Coloricon Contour Kit. Personally, this is going to be too light for me in the summer but I think I will get good use out of it in the Fall. Also the formula of both the matte bronzer and matte highlight is very smooth. Lastly, I got the Coverall Correcting Palette. There have been a lot of high end correcting palettes coming out so I thought this could be a good dupe. I was not very impressed with the texture of these. They were cream but almost felt chalky and stiff. I personally would not buy this one again. However, the other two are definitely winners!
What are you looking forward to this summer?
Lots of love,

Top Three Golden Ladies by rena-blank on Polyvore
Award season has finally began and there is no better way to start it than with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on The Golden Globes. Those two are completely hilarious and I am so sad that last night was their last time hosting The Golden Globes. As always the red carpet was filled with amazing glamorous dress and sexy man in suits. Honestly, I probably enjoy the pre show red carpet more than the actual awards. These three ladies stood out to me the most along the sea of beautiful dresses.
Emma Stone In Lanvin: No one but Emma Stone can make pants look so chic and glamourous. From the sequin top to the side bow to the black pointed toe shoes, Emma looks elegant and sleek. I thought her make up and hair perfect complemented her amazing outfit.
Sienna Miller In Miu Miu: The plunging necklaine and the dramatically parted hair look perfect on Sienna's petite frame. The detailing on the dress are also so stunning.
Leslie Mann in KaufmanFranco: Yellow is definitely a hard color to pull off but Leslie Mann looks stunning in the bright yellow strapless dress. The dress fits her like a glove and the earrings are a perfect addition to the look.
Who did you think looked great at the Golden Globes?
Lots of Love,

Walking through Ulta, you can't help but be drawn to Urban Decay's new exclusive to Ulta, Shadow Box. From the travel friendly size to the vivid colors, this palette is definitely an eye catcher.
This palette comes in a sturdy purple and black orchid petal designed cardboard packaging with a metal UD magnetic closer. The box the palette comes in had the same design with a cute little paragraph on the back talking about the shadows and pictures of what the shadows were.
When you open up the palette, you see a large mirror with "beauty with an edge" written in the right corner and two rows of 6 colors each. The paragraph on the back of the box packaging says there is a wide range of finishes from matte to sparkly but really there is only one matte color in black with the other 11 being sparkly. The top row colors are Sin, Indo, Bordello, Tarnado, Smog and Black Out. The bottom row colors are Flash, Mushroom, Lost, Freelove, Moonshadow and Baked Cowboy.
|Top Row: Top to Bottom: BlackOut, Smog, Tornado, Bordello, Indo, Sin|
|Bottom Row: Top to Bottom: Baked Cowboy, Moonshadow, Freelove, Lost, Mushroom, Flash|
A lot of these colors are well known and loves such as Baked Cowboy. Urban Decay definitely does sparkly colors better than matte colors as you can definitely see that in this palette. The 11 sparkly colors are much better quality than the matte black. The black is hard to work with while the sparkly colors are all smooth, silky and buttery. The colors is the palette are beautiful. You get some nice shimmer golden browns such as Smog and Lost as well as some bright colors as such Flash, a bright lilac purple, Indo, a deep teal, and Moonshadow, a bright navy blue.
Overall, I think this palette is a great add on but you definitely can't travel with just this palette since it is mostly sparkly colors. I think this makes an awesome gift to any UD lovers. The colors in this palette are definitely going to be fun to play with!
Have you checked this palette out? What is your favorite UD color?
Lots of Love,

Happy New Years Everyone! I hope 2015 is a great year for all of you :)
Over the holiday season, I was lucky enough to get gifted some LUSH goodies from one of my aunts. I am super excited to give these a try because I have actually never tried any of these before. She gave me the Winter Garden gift set from LUSH which comes with 5 little goodies.
Ro's Argan Body Conditioner: I am probably most excited about this product. This is a body conditioner that is to be used in the shower after a shower gel. It is suppose to leave your "velvety-soft" and the best part is you don't need to apply body lotion afterwards! This can be a total time saver as you are pretty much applying your lotion in the shower and this way you're not stuck in your bathroom all cold and wet applying lotion.
Vanilla Puff: This is definitely the most unique product in this gist set. This is a dusting powder which is suppose to be used by sprinkling it all over your body before getting dressed for silky soft skin. This smells amazing like vanilla frosting. I am curious to see if I actually feel a difference on my skin when using this.
Snowcake Soap: This is one of LUSH's limited edition holiday time products. I have heard great stuff about this and I am super excited that I get to try this because I know all the limited edition products are going away soon. I have loved all the over body soaps I have used from LUSH so I expected this one to be just as good!
Rose Jam: Let's start of by saying this smells so good! The perfect rose scent with hints of vanilla and lemon that is perfectly sweet but not overpowering. This is a shower gel and LUSH does amazing shower gels so I look forward to this. The packaging says that this is limited edition but I don't think this is part of their holiday time limited edition products.
Ultrabalm: Last but not least, is this multi purpose balm called Ultrabalm. This comes in a cute little tin that is perfect for throwing into your purse. This is all purpose balm that could be used on any dry bits like your lips or hands. This is also made with a bunch of oils so it is super moisturizing.
What LUSH bits have you been loving lately?
Lots of Love,
