May Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be a good time to do my May favorites. I tried quite a few new things this month, so I have a good mix. That being said, let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I started BoxyCharm and because I subscribed at the very end of April I got my April box in May along with my May box, meaning I have favorites from both. I will of course link both of those posts down below if you haven’t read them. The first is the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. My go to eyeshadow primer is the Too Faced Shadow Insurance, but this one is now up there as a go to. It’s on the thicker side and has a fade proof and crease proof translucent finish that really does make my shadow last all day and brings out the vibrance.

My second beauty favorite is the Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for eyes. This has hyaluronic acid and algae extract for smoothness, to seal in moisture and help in reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. This has quickly become a favorite of mine. I’ve been using this since I got it and I do feel like I can see a difference. I’ve used a few different Murad products and they’re honestly all great. I definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a new eye cream.

IMG_5511

My second to last BoxyCharm favorite is the Alamar Cosmetics Colorete Blush Trio in Medium-Tan. In this palette you get three blushes, hence blush trio, but you have Seclusion which is an orangey/peach shade, Isla which is a coral and Toasted, a rosey pink. These blushes are all very pretty. They’re buildable, blend out nicely and are quite  pigmented without being too much.

My last BoxyCharm favorite is the Vintage By Jessica Liebeskind Cashmere Lip Pencil in Mocha. This is honestly a great lip pencil. It’s in a really nice medium brown that goes super well with most of my current nudey/brown lipsticks. I’ve also worn this on it’s own all over my lips, it goes on really smooth and has great staying power.

And my last, non Boxy favorite is the e.l.f. Bite Size eyeshadow palette in Truffles. This palette is a mix of darker neutrals, browns and blacks. There is a lot of versatility in this palette and I’ve worn it a few times since talking about it. I also ordered the rest of the Bite Size palettes I was missing and got them yesterday, so look for part four of the Bite Size series soon.

IMG_5478

Moving on, I have a food favorite and it’s the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Popcorn. Flamin’ Hot Cheetos are one of my favorite snacks and I love popcorn, so when I saw these I was intrigued. These don’t have as much of that vinegar pop that you get with the Cheetos, but they have a good heat and will leave your fingers that bright red-orange.

IMG_5561

IMG_5573

And my last favorite, a music favorite, is the 20th Anniversary Edition of B.B. King and Eric Clapton’s Riding With The King album. This comes out on June 26th, but it’s available for pre-order now on CD, 2 LP and Digital. Along with being remastered, this album has also been expanded. So you get two unreleased tracks, Rollin’ and Tumblin’ and Let Me Love You Baby. I have the original CD, but I’ve pre-ordered this. Rollin’ and Tumblin’ has been released on Spotify and I think it’s great. Eric has done a few versions of this song over the years and this one fits in perfectly with the rest of the album and I’m glad they decided to add it in now.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your May favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great May :).

April Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my April favorites. I have a fun mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my April Sephora Play Box, which I will link below if you haven’t read. My first Play favorite is the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. This is a holy grail product for me, I’ve been using it for a while and I always recommend it. It detoxifies, soothes the skin and helps with skins elasticity.

IMG_5434

My next favorite is the Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara in Black. I’ve worn this a few times since I got it and I really like it. There’s no clumping or transferring and it makes my lashes look full and long. Basically it does what it says on the tin and if you’re looking for a new mascara or just want to change it up then I definitely recommend giving this a try.

IMG_5431

IMG_5432

My last Play favorite is the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dance Fever. I have a few of these Nars lip pencils and they’re some of my favorites. This one in particular is a really nice medium brown. These go on so smooth and have great staying power.

IMG_5438

IMG_5439

IMG_5440

I wanted to say quickly that as Sephora Play has ended I have subscribed to BoxyCharm and starting next month I will be unboxing those. I’m super excited about it and I hope you guys enjoy reading it.

And my last beauty favorite is the Sinful Colors Quick Bliss Nail Polish in 2674, Flushed. I’m always buying nail polish and when I saw the Quick Bliss line online, I was interested. The Quick Bliss line is quick dry, says it dries in 1 minute and I can attest to the fact that it dried down super quickly. They also have cherry oil which helps to protect from breakage. Flushed is a really pretty and sparkly pinky purple that goes a little bit gold when it hits the light.

IMG_5363

IMG_5362

Moving on I have a book favorite and it’s Tom Clancy’s Enemy Contact, A Jack Ryan Jr. Novel by Mike Maden. I’ve always really liked the Jack Ryan series, including the Amazon show. I haven’t read all of the books but after reading this one I picked up a few more. I really like that the series was expanded to Jack Ryan Jr and I think the writing is fantastic. This is definitely a series of books I recommend.

And my last favorite is a music favorite, and it’s the song A Conversation With Alice by Joe Bonamassa. This is a new song from Joe and I’ve been really liking it. I think the story behind it is great and I love the fact that he took his experience and turned it into a song. This song has a lot of elements that I like in a blues song and Joe plays slide, which I always really like. I first heard this on Spotify, but I’ll link the YouTube video below. It’s definitely worth a listen.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your April favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you all had a good April :).

September Favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy October and Happy Spooky Season. I’m a couple days late, but today I’m going to be doing my September favorites. I feel like the first half of September flew by and the second half moved at a snail’s pace, but in that time there were a few things that became favorites. And with that being said, let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty I have a couple of favorites from my September Sephora Play Box, which I’ll link below. My first being the First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Pores Be Gone Matte Primer. This primer is oil free, has a matte finish, does a great job of blurring pores and is safe for sensitive skin. I don’t use matte primer a lot but this one I’ve really been liking. It does have a scent, which isn’t something I typically like, but this is a fruity/fresh smell so it’s not bad at all. First Aid Beauty makes some of my favorite skincare products and this is now one of them.

SPSP3

My other Play favorite is the Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara in Classic Black. I honestly can’t even tell you how much I love this mascara. From the minute I put it on I was so impressed. It makes my lashes really full and voluminous and super long. Lashes for days. The formula is great because it’s really smooth, I haven’t experienced any flaking or transfer and because it’s so smooth it’s really buildable so no lashes sticking together and looking clumpy. I also really like the brush. Its nice and big and it gets all of my lashes. I highly recommend.

SPSP5

SPSP6

My second to last beauty favorite is a nail polish. It’s Sinful Colors 2621, Nakey Nay from the Naughty Nudes Collection. This polish is so pretty. It’s a bronzey almost caramel color and when the light hits it you can really see the depth and the sparkle. I’ve looked into the rest of the Naughty Nudes Collection and it all looks so nice and like I’m going to be buying more nail polish soon.

SEPT2

SEPT3

SEPT1

And my last beauty favorite is my new hair. I had been growing my hair for so long and I decided it was time to change it up. I knew that I wanted to cut a lot of it off, it ended up being somewhere between 12-15 inches, and I knew that I wanted to be more blonde again. So I told my hairdresser and she went from there. I didn’t ever think that I would do anything in the red family but I really like the shade she chose and overall I’m so happy with it and I feel like it brightens me up, which I’m happy about.

SEPT4

Moving on I have a TV show favorite and it’s Downton Abbey. I was scrolling through Amazon looking for something to watch after finishing a show and I came across Downton. I didn’t watch it when it was on originally but I know what a huge success it was and continues to be. I’m currently on season 3, I think I have one or two episodes left but I’m absolutely loving it. I’m excited to see the movie as well. If you’ve seen the movie, no spoilers, but I’d love to know what you thought.

And my last favorite is a music favorite, and it’s This Train from Joe Bonamassa’s Live At The Sydney Opera House album, which is available on October 25th. This is one of those really fun songs that’s like the perfect balance of bluesy and bouncy. And I’m excited to hear the rest of the album and I definitely recommend giving it a listen if you haven’t.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great September :).

July Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month, I thought today would be the perfect day to talk about my July favorites. I have an interesting mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my July Sephora Play Box, I’ll of course link that post below if you haven’t read it. And my Play favorite is the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips. You guys know how much I love this. I’ve been using it for ages and it not only takes off every stay proof, waterproof, long lasting bit of makeup, but it does so with a gentle formula so there’s no scrubbing or irritation.

JLSP2

Next up we have the Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Glace. Again, this is something I’ve been using for a little while and it’s just so good. This particular shade is like a dusty mauve and it’s so pretty. These lip crayons are super pigmented and really long wearing. I have quite a few Bite Beauty products and honestly they’re all great. If you’ve never checked them out then I highly recommend doing so.

JLSP7

JLSP8

My last Play favorite is the Marc Jacobs Fragrances Daisy Love Eau So Sweet. This is a scent that I would describe as very summery. It’s floral, fruity and just a little bit sugary, which is perfect. This isn’t one of those perfumes that you have to worry about being completely faded by the end of the day, it wears well and lasts a long time. I definitely recommend smelling this if you haven’t and you get the chance.

JLSP9

My second to last beauty favorite is the Pantene Intense Rescue Shots. I received this first in my Walmart Beauty Box, link below, and in my Target Beauty Box later, link below. So I figured I would give it a try. I take pretty good care of my hair so I didn’t know if it would really do a lot, but I have to say that I’m impressed. You use this after you’ve shampooed and conditioned and you apply it from the middle of your hair to the ends. It’s purpose is to target any damage you may have and to help prevent split ends, what I’ve noticed is that the portion of my hair I applied it has been softer than normal and I quite like that.

WBB9

And my last beauty favorite is Aloe Vera. Earlier this month I was doing something I’m going to talk about later in this post, outside in the heat of the day, for a long period of time, and I got the worst sunburn I’ve had in a really long time. It was so red and so painful and using aloe absolutely saved me. It ended up not peeling and actually turned into a nice little tan.

My next favorite is a book and it’s Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. I talked about the show adaptation in my favorites last month and after watching and loving that I decided that I had to read the book. I absolutely loved it, it was so funny and now I fully understand why so many people have loved this book for so long. It’s just fantastic. I 1000% recommend reading it if you haven’t and watching the show because David Tennant and Michael Sheen are incredible and do an outstanding job of bringing the characters to life.

JLYF5

Moving on, my next favorite is my sunflowers and the planter box I built for them, aka the thing that caused my sunburn. Back in June a neighbor of mine told me she had some extra sunflower starts that she didn’t have a use for and I very happily took them off her hands. I knew that sunflowers like to root pretty deep and have space to grow so I decided to build my own planter box. It came out so good, I’m super happy with it and the sunflowers have been thriving since I put them in there. I have to give a shout out to my dad for helping me with this because my woodworking experience is limited.

JLYF1

JLYF2

JLYF3

JLYF4

And my last favorite is a music favorite. It’s the song Superstitious by Europe. I feel like Europe is a band that gets forgotten about/people don’t know has more songs than Final Countdown. But my discovering this song was totally random, it popped up in my recommended on YouTube and I’m glad I clicked because I really like it. I listen to a lot of music and this song has one of, in my opinion, the best guitar solos. It’s just so good. And I would definitely say to give this song a listen if you haven’t, it’s pretty great.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your July favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great July :).

December Favorites and 2018 Wrap Up

Hi everyone,

Today, as there’s only a couple of days left in the month, I’m going to be doing my December favorites and kind of wrapping up 2018. I have quite a few things to talk about, so let’s get into it.

Starting off with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my December Sephora Play Box. The first is the Too Faced Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Perfecting Primer- Peaches and Cream Collection. I used this on Christmas Day and I really like it. It blurs any imperfections you have and it helps to brighten your skin. I would definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a primer. And it smells like peaches and cream which is nice bonus. The Peaches and Cream collection is really great.

DSP6

My second favorite is the Trestique Lip Glaze in Paris Pink. I’ve worn this a couple times since getting it and I like it a lot. I would say it’s in between a lipstick and a lip balm. The color is really nice, it’s really long lasting and it’s very hydrating. I’m definitely going to be checking out Trestique to see their other products.

DSP2

DSP9

And my last Sephora Play favorite is the Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in 02 Nothin’ But Nude. This is a really pretty nudey brown and it goes with so many different lipsticks. I like that it’s really soft on the lips and basically glides on. And it has a matte finish. It’s got everything going for it. You can get this in something like 40 shades and I have a couple sitting in my cart right now that I’ll go and purchase after this.

DSP7

DSP8

Moving on, my next favorite is Christmas and within that what I got for Christmas. Starting with my stocking, my parents are pretty good at nailing stocking stuffers. Besides some of my favorite candy, there was a bottle of  Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Spray, which is one of my favorite Bath & Body Works scents. A pack of hair ties, which is always needed, and a little loofa. There was also three mini products. I keep a little kit in my handbag that’s full of minis for all situations, so any additions to it I like. So there’s a Crest 3D White toothpaste, a Softsoap Juicy Pomegranate and Mango Infusions Moisturizing Body Wash and a Gold Bond Ultimate Skin Therapy Cream with Aloe.

CP1

Moving on to my actual presents, there were a few things I didn’t take pictures of and those were socks and some black tank tops, the basics. I did get one other clothing item and it’s a Mariners sweatshirt. I have some Mariners gear but I didn’t have any sweatshirts and I didn’t have any gear in the Sunday colors which are navy blue and gold. I wore this yesterday, it’s super comfortable and cozy and I like the way it fits.

CP10

Next I have a couple of beauty presents and each of these are going to get their own posts, so I’m not going to get too in depth about them. The first is the Sephora Collection The New Neutrals. This is a little box that has five different nude/neutral lipsticks and they’re all really pretty. I’ve worn two of them so far and I’m really happy with them. I’m excited to get into the details of this box.

CP2

The second beauty item is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette. I’ve been drooling over this palette since I opened it and honestly I still kind of am. I’ve worn three of the colors so far, not at the same time, but I’m so happy with it. It’s a gorgeous palette.

CP3

CP4

I have one music item and it’s Jeff Lynne’s ELO Wembley Or Bust concert. I bought this on iTunes and have been listening to it but I have yet to watch it and this comes with two CDs and one Blu Ray. I’m definitely excited to watch this.

CP6

CP7

CP8

My last two items are lifestyle related. The first is new headphones. Mine were just old and I had gotten a lot of use out of them. And it’s always funny to me when you get new ones to remember what they’re supposed to sound like.

CP5

The second is also getting it’s own post and it’s an Erin Condren Life Planner. The one I got is the teal and platinum, has my name on it and is the vertical layout. I’m so happy with this, I’ve already started writing in things and I can’t wait to use it throughout 2019.

CP9

That about wraps it up for this post, I want to thank each and everyone of you for reading, following, liking, commenting and everything else. It means a lot. I hope you guys had a good year and here’s to an even better 2019.

Until next time, I hope you all had a great December and I appreciate you all :).

Blogmas Day Seven: Eric Clapton Christmas Album Review

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Seven! Today I’m going to be talking about Eric Clapton’s Christmas album Happy Xmas. I wanted him to do a Christmas album forever and I’m so happy that it happened. I have this album on my phone and I have a physical copy, but I do that with most albums. I’m one of those people who still likes CDs, I bought a few for other people because CDs always make great Christmas presents/stocking stuffers and the art on this album is adorable. I know it was drawn by Eric and it makes it feel that much more Christmassy.

EC1

The track listing for this album is:

  1. White Christmas
  2. Away In a Manger (Once in Royal David’s City)
  3. For Love On Christmas Day
  4. Everyday Will Be Like A Holiday
  5. Christmas Tears
  6. Home For The Holidays
  7. Jingle Bells
  8. Christmas in My Hometown
  9. It’s Christmas
  10. Sentimental Moments
  11. Lonesome Christmas
  12. Silent Night
  13. Merry Christmas Baby
  14. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

I know that if you listen on Spotify then you can hear two bonus tracks, A Little Bit Of Christmas Love and You Always Hurt The Ones You Love. Which are great, just like the rest of the album.

What I like about this album is top to bottom it’s different. It’s that perfect mix of bluesy and classic Christmas with a surprise thrown in. Jingle Bells is dedicated to Avicii, as Eric really liked his style and I think that that’s a beautiful thing to do, especially during this time of year. And it’s a great song.

Overall, this album is everything I wanted it to be and more and I give it a 9.5/10. The classics are so well done, the originals are amazing. I don’t think that I have one song that is my favorite, but I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been listening to this on and off since it came out in October, which I don’t do with Christmas music, and since it’s December it has made it’s way onto my Christmas playlist.

If you haven’t yet listened to this album, I highly, highly recommend that you do. I know it’s on Spotify and YouTube. I bought it from iTunes and got the physical copy from the EC store on his website, but I know that you can buy it other places.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you’ve listened to this album what’s your favorite song or songs?

Until next time, you can never have too many Christmas albums and have fun listening :).

November favorites

Hi everyone,

Today, as it’s getting towards the end of the month. I’m going to be doing my November favorites. I have a fun mix of things this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my November Sephora Play Box and I’ll link that post below if you haven’t read it. The first is the Amika Silken Up Dry Conditioner. This is a product that I was initially excited about because I had never used a dry conditioner before and I really like this. When I originally talked about this I used it on second day hair, just to see and it made my hair look fresher than it normally would on the second day. I usually go three or four days between hair washing, that’s what my hair likes, and I used this last week when I was sick and it really helped put some life back into my hair. So I highly recommend not only this product but Amika as a brand, they’re great.

NSP2

Next we have the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. I have a couple different powders that I switch between and this had made itself a spot in the rotation. It’s really silky, weightless and gives you a nice matte finish.

NSP7

This next favorite I talked a lot about in my Sephora Play unboxing, so I won’t ramble on too much. But it’s the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick in 40 Pink Tea. I will say that I really like the color, it’s a nudey pink, and it’s really long lasting. I definitely recommend it.

NSP6

NSP8

My last Sephora Play favorite is Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. This is like the perfect scent, it’s a very fresh with citrus, floral notes and some underlying woody hints. If you get the chance to smell it I would say do it. It’s really nice.

NSP5

My last beauty favorite is something I just bought, but already really like and it’s the e.l.f. Matte Lip Color in Tea Rose. It’s a dusty rose shade and it feels really nice on the lips, not drying at all. And the colored bit on the end pops off and it’s a built in sharpener, which is super handy and I appreciate.

NOF1

NOF2

Moving on, my next favorite is Thanksgiving. This year for Thanksgiving I had a cold, which I’m still getting over, so I wasn’t feeling super festive. But it was a really chill day and I did still make apple pie. And I’m really happy with how it came out.

NOF3

And my last favorite is a music favorite and it’s the new Take That album Odyssey. I’ve been giving my reaction as some songs off the album as they were being released, but now that the album’s out, just wow. It’s incredible. The new songs are fantastic, and the Odyssey version of the classic songs is so well done, very well mixed. I love everything, but if I had to pick a favorite or favorites, I haven’t stopped listening to Everlasting, Spin and How Deep Is Your Love featuring Barry Gibb. How Deep Is Your Love is one of my favorite Bee Gees songs and when I originally heard the Take That cover I wanted them to collaborate with Barry and I’m not disappointed in it whatsoever. It’s a beautiful song. I would one million percent recommend listening to this album.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you all had a great November :).

October favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy Halloween! Today as it’s the last day of the month I’m going to be doing my October favorites, and yes I’m listening to my Halloween playlist while I do this and I’ll link that down below for anyone that wants to have a listen. I have some fun favorites this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have one favorite from my October Sephora Play Box. I ended up getting it really late, so I haven’t had a lot of time to test things out. But I have been using one thing, I actually used it this morning, and it’s the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. This primer has hyaluronic acid, marine plant and algae extracts and I can tell a difference with my skin. It feels softer and smoother and I’m really liking it. I will definitely be purchasing a full size version.

OSP4

My next beauty favorite is some lipsticks and not just any lipsticks, these are Givenchy Le Rouge Liquide lipsticks. I got a sample of three with a Sephora order and I really liked them so I ordered them and I’m looking at which ones to buy next. The three that I have are 202 Rose Flanelle, 309 L’ Interdit and 410 Rouge Suedine. I don’t have a picture wearing 309, but the next time I wear it I’ll post one to my social medias. These lipsticks are a velvet matte, they’re long lasting and the color payoff is great. I definitely recommend these.

OCF4

OCF5

My next favorite is baseball related, and speaking of which, I want to congratulate the Boston Red Sox on winning the World Series! They were stellar and it was so much fun to watch. But my baseball related favorite has to do with the Seattle Mariners. Towards the end of the season they always do a fan appreciation night and give away prizes and fun experiences. The Mariners team store also does giveaways and on Twitter they said that if you retweeted a certain tweet of theirs and followed them then you could win a Nelson Cruz jersey. I was already following them and I think contests like that are a bit of fun, so I retweeted and I was one of the five winners! I was really surprised and happy that I decided to do it. I love Nelson Cruz and the jersey is great, so it’s a win win.

OCF3

My second to last favorites are music favorites. The first is Eric Clapton’s new Christmas album Happy Xmas. I won’t go into it too much because I’m going to be doing a full review of it in December. But what I will say is that I wanted him to do a Christmas album for the longest time and I’m so happy that it finally happened. It’s everything I wanted it to be and more, definitely go and give it a listen.

My second music favorite is Take That’s new song Out Of Our Heads from their forthcoming album Odyssey. This song is really, really fun. It’s different but at the same time it’s very Take That. It’s very bouncy and old school, the work with the horns is fantastic. Like something you would hear in a club in the old days.

And my last favorite is Halloween. I like to do something fun with my makeup and today I tried something that I hadn’t done before and I’m not a makeup artist by any means but I’m really pleased with how it came out. And I always carve a pumpkin, which I did yesterday. I went for the more sinister/scary vibe and I think it turned out great and once I light it up I’ll be posting pictures to my social medias.

OCF2

2018 Halloween playlist and festive nails

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be talking about my 2018 Halloween playlist. I did a post like this a few years ago, I will link it down below, and I thought it was about time that I updated it. It’s on Spotify so I will leave a link to it down below if you want to go and give it a listen.

The songs that were on it from years past were I Put A Spell On You, there are three versions, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Buddy Guy and Carlos Santana and my favorite of the three Joe Cocker. Monster Mash (Bobby Pickett and The Crypt-Kickers), Ghostbusters (Ray Parker Jr), Thriller (Michael Jackson), Werewolves Of London (Warren Zevon), Superstition (Stevie Wonder), Bat Out of Hell (Meat Loaf), Black Magic (Little Mix), Highway To Hell (AC/DC), Bad Moon Rising (Creedence Clearwater Revival) and Cajun Moon (Eric Clapton). This year I really took the time to look for songs that I not only like but that I would want to hear if I was at a Halloween party or on Halloween night. So I added the following songs, Hungry Like The Wolf (Duran Duran), Witchy Woman (Eagles), Voodoo Chile (Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood), Voodoo Child (Slight Return) (Jimi Hendrix), Sympathy For The Devil (The Rolling Stones), Black Magic Woman (Santana), Runnin’ With The Devil (Van Halen), Evil Woman (ELO), Evil Woman- Live at Wembley (ELO) I included two versions of this song because sometimes a song is better live and I happen to really like this one live. The Time Warp (Richard O’Brien), Frankenstein (The Edgar Winter Group) and Hells Bells (AC/DC).

Because this post is slightly short and I don’t think I’m posting another Halloween post before the 31st, I’m going to show you guys the festive nails I did yesterday. Normally I go with a bloody nail look, but I wanted to branch out this year so I went with Frankenstein inspired nails. I do like how they came out, but I’m missing a detail brush so the scars are slightly bigger than I wanted them but you can tell what I’m going for.

For this I used LA Colors Color Last in CNP31 Onyx, Salon Perfect 502 Loopy Lime and Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat. I’m really liking mattes right now and I love the look of matte black nails so I’m really happy that I went with it.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have any more songs suggestions let me know and if you did Halloween nails tweet me a picture or tag me on Instagram because I’d love to see.

Until next time, if you’re going to or hosting any parties have fun and I hope you all have a Happy Halloween! 🙂

September favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy October! I’m a couple of days late, but today I’m going to be doing my September favorites. I have a pretty good mix of things to talk about, so let’s get into it.

First up we have beauty, I have a couple favorites from my September Sephora Play Box and I will link that below if you haven’t read it. First up we have the Sephora LashCraft Big Volume Mascara in Black. I really like this mascara, it goes on smooth, doesn’t clump and makes my lashes look really full. I would definitely say to check this out if you’re looking for a new mascara.

Next we have the Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer. This has coconut water and other energizing and replenishing ingredients and it holds up to it’s name. Just a little bit gives you a bright and dewy face and a great canvas for your makeup or to just go about your day.

My last beauty favorite is the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in (Earth)Quake. This is a dark chocolatey brown eyeliner, which I love because it not only will go with a ton of different looks but I have green eyes and browns really make them pop. The first time I wore this was a day when I was doing dirty work because I wanted to see how it would stand up and I was impressed. It’s long lasting and it doesn’t smudge. It definitely rates high with me.

My next favorite is a food favorite and it’s Pepperidge Farm Pirouettes. If you don’t know what these are, they’re crème filled rolled wafers. I was in the grocery store, saw these and had to get them. I hadn’t had these in at least ten years and I always remember eating them around this time of year with hot chocolate, so I thought why not. And I honestly wanted to see if they were as good as I thought. I bought the French Vanilla and they were so good.

Moving on, I have a TV show favorite and it’s the X Factor UK. Out of all the singing competition shows this one is definitely my favorite. This season they have a new crop of judges, Simon Cowell, Louis Tomlinson, Ayda Williams and Robbie Williams and I’m loving it. Sometimes when a show brings on new people it doesn’t really flow or it takes a while but I think this really works and it was a good choice. If any of you are watching let me know what you think and who you’re loving. There’s a lot of talent this season.

And lastly I have some music favorites. The first is Paul McCartney’s newest album Egypt Station. I talked about this before it came out because I was loving the singles and it did not disappoint. Top to bottom it’s a fantastic album and I can’t choose just one song that’s my favorite.

My second music favorite is Take That Odyssey. Take That is celebrating their 30th anniversary and to celebrate they are going on tour and releasing a new album titled Odyssey . It has some of classic and fan favorite songs, some that have been revamped and a couple new ones. So far they have released the Odyssey version of Pray, which is one of my favorite Take That songs, and it’s absolutely beautiful. Gary Barlow’s vocals are just incredible.

And my last music favorite is Peaches and Diesel by Eric Clapton. This song is from the Slowhand album, which is for sure one of my favorite EC albums. When I heard it it made me stop what I was doing and really listen, you know those songs that just have that effect on you, and I love every minute of it. I would one million percent say to go and listen to it and everything else that I mentioned. They’re all on YouTube and iTunes.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same September favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you all had a great September :).
