IMG_2384

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today is a special day… It’s my Birthday and I am excited to share with you a extra special blog post with you all. It’s 27 things life has taught me in the last 27 years that I have been on this wonderful world. Something are deeper than others but boneless important.

  1. Be kind to yourself, because no one else will be.
  2. Enjoy that donut or that piece of cake. Life is too short to waste good food.
  3. Do something that scares you every couple of months or every couple of weeks. Trust me it will be the best thing you can do for your personal growth.
  4. Do not let others define your self worth!
  5. Breath… everything will be alright.
  6. I promise you nothing is as chaotic as it seems. Nothing is worth your health. Nothing is worth poisoning yourself into stress, anxiety and fear.
  7. Don’t be scared to cut your hair. It will grow back.
  8. Find your passion and never let go.
  9. Drink more water your body will thank you later.
  10. It’s okay to be unique/ different own that SHIT!
  11. Tell your parents you love them because one day they won’t be there for you say it.
  12. Be kind to others.
  13. Travel as often as you can.
  14. Learn as much as you can about anything that you are passionate about and other things you aren’t.
  15. Try new things.
  16. Enjoy nature it’s a beautiful thing.
  17. Take care of yourself, you can’t run on empty.
  18. Your mental health is important. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.
  19. Check your car’s oil and tire pressure (Girls can maintain their cars just as much as guys can)
  20. Allow yourself to make mistakes, you are human.
  21. Love deeply even if you have been hurt.
  22. Treat yourself to something nice every once in a while.
  23. Write your goals down. You will be glad you did!
  24. Pursue higher education if you feel ready for it. You won’t be disappointed.
  25. Read a hard cover book. It’s awesome.
  26. Drink Coffee/Tea.
  27. Cut out sodas and drink more water.

Bonus: Surround yourself with good people because once you get older those who stuck around will mean more to you than those who passed by.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I will see you all next week.

Love,

-M

My Birthday Wishlist

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Today I am sharing what I would love to receive on my birthday which just so happens to be tomorrow! I am sure I won’t be getting these things, but this post was so much fun to put together. This also gives you a peek at who I am and I’m all about you all getting to know who I am.

Betsey Johnson Prince d’Orsay Evening Pumps in Gold Sparkle – These shoes are absolutely amazing. They would be a great addition to the heels I already have.

PAT McGRATH LABS Lust: MatteTrance™ Trio – Is it bad that I love the packaging of these lipsticks. I haven’t tried this brand and would love to test them out.

 

Dusty Rose USB Pom Pom Keychain – I absolutely love the idea of this cute bunny keychain being multi-purpose and can help charge your phone if plugged in to a wall adapter.

Warning! This Beverage May Contain Questionable Ingredients Boxed Mug – I love the message this mug says. It’s absolutely perfect to add to my mug collection.

the million basic box – pink – pink/white eternity roses – These roses are supposed to last year up to year! I would love to have this awesome flower arrangement in my room.

Realistically I know I won’t be getting these things, but it was fun to think of unique birthday gift ideas that would be awesome receiving. Oh Well back to reality.

What are somethings that are on your Birthday Wishlist? 

Have a great day and I will see you tomorrow!

UD Naked Heat Palette

IMG_2164

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you a new love in my life. The Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. I am absolutely in love with all of the colors. This palette has me so ready for Fall! I will be creating a few eye makeup looks with this bad boy, but I had to share how beautiful it is. I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Is this palette worth buying? The colors this palette brings together aren’t anything new. You can probably find many similar shades in your makeup collection. The beauty of this palette is that they are all together and the pigmentation is solid. If you aren’t a fan of orange toned shades this isn’t the palette for you. A few of these colors tend to look very similar once on my eye lid, but I’m okay with that because I would never pair them together in one eye look. I think you should at least swatch this and then decide.

Do you own this palette? If so, what are your thoughts?

Have a great day and I will see you tomorrow!

Review: Blendercleanser Solid

IMG_2151

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you a review on this blender cleanser solid. You can find this at Sephora or click here to purchase it online. I am a huge fan of the Beauty Blender and Makeup sponges in general. I have tried other cleansers and they have worked okay, but many don’t seem to take off all the foundation that I pack into the sponges with every day use.

I decided to give this a try and see if it was worth the money.  With a steep price tag of $16 I was hoping it was all it was cracked up to be. On the Sephora website this product is rated 4.7/5 stars which is quite a high rating in my book. Once I got home I decided to try this out and I absolutely loved how clean this product made my beauty blenders and my other makeup sponges. I can see how this product will last me a while since you don’t need to use a lot to get great results. I have yet to try cleaning my brushes with this, but I will update you once I do.

I loved the end result of squeaky clean makeup sponges. I am still on the hunt for something a little bit more cheaper, but I highly recommend this product if you want something that works at truly cleaning your makeup sponges.

Do any of you know of any cheaper alternatives to this product? 

Have a great day and I will see you all tomorrow.

My Travel Diary: Nepal pt.1

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you the second part of the my trip which is Nepal. I got the chance to go to the Limbini Gardens where there are temples dedicated to Buddha. Each country can petition to create a temple dedicated to Buddha and it’s definitely a site to see. I hope you all enjoy my visual diary.

Makeup Brush Cleaning Pad

IMG_2340

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you a review on this Makeup Brush cleaning pad that I found at my local TJ Maxx. Can you believe this was only $5.50. I have seen this retail for $24-$34. I think that’s ridiculous since it’s going to get stained and is going to need to be replaced in a few years or so.

Overall I am in love with this product. It has made my cleaning process go much more smoother. I feel like it also cuts down on time if you tend to wash a bajillion brushes like me. One thing I will point out is that if you was foundations brushes some foundations may stain the silicon that this product is made of. So don’t expect it to be clean and stain free forever.

What do you use to clean your brushes? Have you ever tried a similar product like this one?

Have a wonderful day and I will see you all tomorrow!
