I can’t believe this is happening! I want to welcome you back to my little corner of the Internet. This has been a long time coming and I am so excited that I can officially reclaim my voice and my blog back from the cobwebs that laid on it. I have so much to share and I hope you will all join me in this new chapter of my life. So with that being said let me reintroduce myself.
Hi! My name is Michelle and I run Nyrmirez and I am so excited to be back behind these keyboards. What can you expect as a reader… Well honesty, realness and a lot of makeup, baking, DIY’s and travel. I want this little corner of the web to be a bright and cheerful place for anyone that stumbles upon it. You can also expect some hard topics such as mental health, unhappiness and managing how to be a adult in this world. I promise to keep things fun, but genuine.
Thank you for stopping by and giving me another chance at this blogging thing.
Recently I went to my local CVS and I saw they had a deal on Essence products and I decided to pick a few of them up. I wanted products that I could wear and I didn’t already own.
I ended up settling for these four products. Two mascaras, a colorful eyeliner and a lipgloss. I had high hopes that everything would work since I’ve heard good things about their mascara’s.
Both of these mascaras were a dream to apply and build up. I paired them together for a nice full lash effect and I was not disappointed.
These two products were the ones I was most excited for. I would suggest to look for other colored eyeliner if you don’t like to go over the cat eye line you created. It took multiple swipes to get a pretty even coverage.
The lipgloss was a absolute NO! I hate the smell and that was the end of that. I thought it smelled like Robitussin the cough medicine your mom made you drink when you were sick. I ended up wearing it for the pictures and if you can get past the smell it’s a beautiful shade.
Let me know your thoughts on the brand Essence. Are you a fan? What are your favorite products?
Today I am sharing a first impression on this product from the Ordinary. I had been seeing it all over Tik Tok and had stumbled upon it on the Ulta web page. I was intrigued by it and I did some research. Here are the benefits of this product:
Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 from The Ordinary is formulated with a combination of low, medium, and high molecular-weight hyaluronic acid, as well as a next-generation hyaluronic acid crosspolymer, at a combined concentration of 2% for multi- depth hydration. This system is supported with the addition of B5 for enhanced surface hydration.
Replenish lost moisture, maintain healthy-looking skin, and provide enhanced barrier support
PH 6.50 – 7.50

How to use: Apply a few drops to face AM and PM before creams.
I have slowly started to incorporate this product into my morning and night routine and my skin looks more hydrated and healthier. I am excited to see how this product performs in the harsh winter.
Have you tried this product out? If so what are your thoughts?
Today I am sharing with you all a cheap and super easy to get a at home manicure for less than $2. I absolutely love doing this when I’m on a major budget and trying to save every penny I can.
I picked up these L.A Color fashion nails at my local dollar general for $1.50. I wanted to see if they were durable and fit my small nail beds. I have a hard time finding the right nail sizes when I buy more expensive nail brands.
I apply them using this Gorilla glue which cost about $5-6 depending on where you buy it. I have used this for months on many other nails and I still have half a bottle. Very well worth the investment in my opinion. This nail doesn’t ruin my own nails and is super easy to take off.
I absolutely am in love with the finished products and they will last me anywhere between 7-14 days. It all depends on how hard I use my hands (ex: washing dishes, gardening, typing on my computer).
Let me know if you are going to try this nail hack?
Today I am sharing with you all this bite size eyeshadow from e.l.f. I have been seeing these all over social media and I wanted to try a few of them myself.
I created a pretty bold look to test out how these shadows worked. The matte shadow blended out beautifully. The shimmer ones had a bit of some fall out which meant that I had to do some cleaning after I applied the shadows.
Overall once I handled the fall out situation I was very pleased with the colors and how affordable the shadows performed for the price point.
I hope you all enjoyed this look. Let me know if you all have tried out any of these shadows?
I know it’s been a while. I took a long break. I need to rejuvenate and come back with inspiration to continue back and share on this space. So much has changed since I last wrote a blog post and I hope you are doing well. I feel like we all need something good in our lives so I wanted to share these products with you all.
I managed to get my hands on three products from this launch and I wanted to share these beauties with you all. This collection is so beautiful.
I’m so in love with the products I picked up and can’t wait to do a makeup look for you all!
Halloween is just around the corner and I have a few special looks for you. My first one is a Minnie Mouse look with a bit of a dark twist. I hope you enjoy.
Start off with a super simple makeup look. Focus the look on the eyeliner and red lipstick for a more Minnie Mouse inspired feel.
I purchased my accessories from Spirit Halloween and the dress is from Target. You can leave it alone and have a tradition look or take it up a notch and make it dark.
I created a base out of hot glue for my broken sword so it could give the effect that I had been stabbed and I hadn’t taken it out yet.
Attach your plastic handle on with spirit gum and hold for 10 minutes until it is attached to your skin. This is a very annoying step, but trust me it’s worth it. Once it’s stuck onto your skin conceal with foundation and add fake blood to make it look realistic.
I hope you all enjoyed this creative take on Minnie Mouse. It’s super simple and a unique way to dress up as your beloved mouse.
It’s officially October and that means that Fall is here. I know the weather here in VA doesn’t reflect that statement, but we will ignore that. I am so excited because Trader Joe’s has some new Fall products. These are the three home products I encourage you to try along with all there Pumpking Spice Foods.

Also don’t forget that they have a great selection of fall flavored food and Pumpkin Spice goodies.
