Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today i am sharing with you a six product face that I have been throwing on pretty much every day. These past weeks I have been trying to just get ready and get out of the house as fast as possible.  I needed products that would tackle some of my problematic problems without having to use 100+ products.

So here is what I have been using on a regular basis.

I love how quick and easy this look is and it wears extremely well over the day which gets two thumbs up from me. I also love that most of these products were I picked up at the drugstore.

A Sweet Treat: Mini Cupcakes

IMG_0808

Happy Friday Everyone!

Welcome! I am starting a baking series called Sweet Treats and it’s very fitting since Valentine’s Day is around the corner. This month all of the treats will be Valentine’s Day themed. Today I am going to show you how to create easy cupcakes that will require you to just mix all of the ingredients if you don’t have the time to make things from scratch.  You really don’t need worry about making things from scratch if you wish to create great tasting cupcakes. Just follow these tips:

One. If your box mix calls for water add milk instead it will add more flavor and give you a little bit of extra protein.

Two. Add a tsp. or tbsp. of vanilla extract. Make sure it’s good quality vanilla this will enhance the flavor of any box mix.

First off let’s go over what you will need:

-Mini Muffin Tin

-Boxed Cake mix

-Vanilla Extract

-Vegetable oil

-Eggs

-Milk

– Canned icing or homemade if you are feeling adventurous, try this recipe.

-Sprinkles (colors & shapes)

-toothpick banners (from Target)

Simple Halloween Nails

Happy Halloween Everyone!

It’s Friday and we are one step closer to the weekend! It also happens to be Halloween and this girl has two halloween party to go to tonight and that means I will be slaving over turning myself into a Zombie. Crossing my fingers that everything goes well, if it all blows up in my face I’ll just squirt myself with fake blood and call it a day! I also want to note that I am sitting at work dressed up as a bee, yep this is my life.

I wanted to share my super simple manicure for this evening. I am no nail artist and this seemed so traditional and appropriate for the office. I still have to work before I get my zombie on so no crazy nails here (that would scare my clients and that’s a no no!). The plus side is that these nail took me no time at all and I had all the colors in my collection, Win!
