Born Pretty Store Watch Review*

Hi Guys! 

Today, I am going to be doing a little review on this beautiful new watch I received from Born Pretty Store. I was contacted by the lovely Lynn to see if I was interested in reviewing a watch for them. I checked out their site and saw how cute all their watches were so I just couldn't say no. I picked out THIS lovely little watch in #4 green. This is their Punk Retro Fashion Bracelet Watch which is available in 8 beautiful colors. I loved the studded wrap around bracelet and how it isn't bulky. It retails for $5.99 which is such a steal for a great watch! It was delivered pretty quickly, well packaged and came in an adorable little box. 

Here is me wearing it the other day. I wore my Victoria's Secret leggings, tank for TJ Maxx, maroon faux leather jacket from Forever 21, skull scarf from Cottonon, studded boots from Steve Madden and my watch from Born Pretty Store. 

You guys should go check out their WEBSITE, they have lots of great things from watches to clothing. You also can get 10 percent off by using the code RENAC10. Who doesn't love great prices plus ten percent off?

How would you wear this watch? 
Lots of Love,

International Swap: UK

Hi Guys!

I'm going to start off by wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy all the yummy foods! I have always wanted to do an international swap because there are so many different make up brands that you can't get in the states but you can get in Europe. So when I saw Jade from a Style Socialite do a blog post asking anyone if they wanted to do a swap, I hopped on it. I am so excited to share this with you and I love everything Jade got me so thank you so much! Go over and check out her blog

We set a 60 dollars so around 40 euro limit so it was a big drugstore swap. I didn't ask for too many specific things but I did tell I wanted to try out the Collection concealer and any Bourjois and Sleek products. Everything was really nice packed and she even got me a few sweets! 

Holiday Rock Candy

Rainbow Drops 

MUA Mosaic Blush 

Bourjois Smokey Eye Trio

Bourjois Bronzing Powder
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

Sleek I Divine Storm Palette

Sleek I Divine Sunset Palette
I absolutely love everything she got me! My favorites are the two Sleeks palettes, Collection concealer and the Bourjois bronzer. The palettes are both beautiful and I know I am going to get a lot of use out of them. The concealer doesn't crease and covers up so well! The bronzer is great for contouring as it is not shimmer. I am definitely going to post reviews on a few of the products later on! Once again, thanks so much Jade! 

Have you guys done swaps before? Any else interested in doing one? 

Lots of Love,

Holiday Gift Sets

Hi Guys!

Drugstores around this time a year are my absolute favorite! Not only do a lot of  drugstore companies come out with holiday special products that always smell amazing but they also come out with gift sets. These gift sets are always great value! Most are only about ten dollars and value close to twenty dollars. I know they are suppose to be gift sets but I can't help but buy at least one or two each year for myself. Walgreens and Walmart are my two favorite stores for this! 

So far this year, I have only picked up one. It is the Ultimate Shine Collection by Suave. I have always had my eye on their Moroccan Argan Styling Oil which selling by itself by $6.99 at Walgreens. So when I saw it in this gift set, I couldn't help myself. For three extra dollars, I also got a shampoo, conditioner and deep shine mask. I don't know about you but I definitely think this is a steal! Plus it comes with a dollar off coupon for nay Suave body product. I am really excited to give all these products a try! 

I also saw gift sets by Herbal Essence, Olay, Elf, Clean&Clear and many more! I am definitely going to be picking up another one for myself and possibly a few as gifts! 

What;s your favorite thing at the drugstore during the holiday season? 

Lots of Love

Sometimes you just wonder...

It has been a while since I blogged. I've just been in this mood where I just haven't felt like it. Yup, I said, I just didn't feel like it. Don't get me wrong, my love and obsession with make up is still here (and increasing) but I just haven't been in a blogging mood. Sometimes, I think I just need to step back and look at things. I love my blog, I love the blogging community and most of all I love make up. However, I was overwhelmed with school and life in general and blogging wasn't something at the front of my mind because I've had exam after exam and essay after essay. This sucks because I do enjoy blogging and I wish in life as my age we had more time to do things we enjoy rather than focus on schooling and all this other junk. Yes, schooling is important but so is figuring out who you are and who you want to be. 

What is the point of schooling if I don't know where I see myself in 3 years, 5 years or 10 years? I have all these things I want to do and  explore but I don't have the chance to right now and I don't think I will for a while. 4 years in college then 6 months after graduation I have to start paying off my loans which are going to be huge and worst of all, who says I will find a job right after. College is also suppose to be the "wonder years" and I love all my friends and I do enjoy learning but the college scene gets old. Parties, going out and drinking are all getting old and as fun as they are, they aren't going to be something I will remember. Honestly, most of the time I don't want to remember them . I want to remember the places I dream of going and I want to do things I love. I imagine that there is more to life then getting a degree and working at an office for the rest of my life. I just wish it was easier to figure out, what I really want to do because part of me feels like I'm wasting time. I'm only going to be young once and I want to live and explore now and not later. 

This is clearly a much more personal post then normal and I'm going to try my best this week to get back into the blogging zone. I have a few posts that I really want to do so hopefully they will be up soon! 

Lots of Love,
