Destiny’s Child has a song for everything.

Cue the Destiny’s Child music:

“The shoes on my feet, I bought it.

The clothes I’m wearing, I bought it.

The rock I’m rockin’, I bought it.

Cuz I depend on me”

Guys. I like the fact that I can take care of myself. I feel like I have a plan and I know what I’m doing.

It’s kinda defeating though when my parents see me as a loser, and probably living on welfare in the near future.

Oh well, it just drives me to prove them so wrong.

I am excited for what the future has to offer.

This time next year I will have my cosmetology license!

I am so excited. I have a very reliable way to pay my rent and bills so I am not super worried. Well, as worried as I’d be if I didn’t have this plan.

I only have…. 16/17 days until I move in! How exciting!

Okay, anyways guys! Guess what I bought today!

Diva on a Dime DIY

So like I said a few days ago, I am moving!

There is just one teeny, tiny, ginormous problem. Furniture is so freaking expensive…. if you do it wrong.

Now don’t get me wrong, when I have a big, fancy job someday I too wish to own a nice furniture set. But for the time being, I am just a girl that works at Panera, and make minimum wage.

(counting the days until I get that cosmo license)

So, here I am showing you how you too can be a diva on a dime!

Step one: Go to a thrift shop. (I am a goodwill lover)

Step two: Find a piece of furniture you like.

IMG_4678

This is the gem I found.

Step Three: Spend the day with your grandmother, have some fun, and go buy spray paint.

okay.. the grandma part isn’t mandatory, but is highly recommended. Grandmas rock! Well, mines actually a “nana” not a grandma.

Step four: Demo if you’re changing it in any way. Fill the holes with caulk, sand, and wipe down.

Step five: Grab some paint clothes and get to spraying!

FullSizeRender-3

Step six: spray and let dry.

Step seven: blog the rest of the piece tomorrow when you finish it.

As for now, I’m off to Half Off Apps at Applebees.

See ya tomorrow! Happy Easter!

Brushes

My favorite makeup artist in the world is Jaclyn Hill. I’m sure you all know of her by now, she’s basically the Bible of cosmetics, as in she knows all.

photo.jpg

Look at her. She’s my soulmate.

The first video I ever watched was her “All about Makeup Brushes” video. Immediately I was hooked. If you haven’t seen this video yet I recommend watching it.

Jaclyn is who introduced me to Sigma Brushes. I love Sigma’s brushes all the hype and talk about their brushes is well worth it.

Except for that annoying f80. I have tried two of the f80 brushes and all they do is shed on me. It’s beyond annoying and I am not impressed.

Does anyone else have this problem?

Did I just get the two flukes? I don’t know guys.

I love all their brushes, but this f80 is not my friend, and I’ve tried countless times to love it.

The prices of these brushes are so reasonable. Way more reasonable than what I paid for It Cosmetics Brushes.

I switched to It Cosmetics foundation brushes after I got fed up with Sigma’s f80 and I love it.

I hate that $40 price though, but I would rather pay for my $40, non shedding brush, than a $20 brush that sheds like a dog.

Have you guys tried Morphe Brushes? I want to so badly. But I really don’t need to purchase any more brushes. I kinda, maybe, sorta, do have a makeup brush buying problem. I can’t help myself.

Some people collect stamps, others collect coins, I collect makeup brushes.

Brushes make me happy. They’re so pretty and fun.

I do recommend buying Sigma brushes in sets though. The two sets that I have from Sigma are:

The Premium Kit and the Make Me Crazy Essential Kit

premium kit Screen Shot 2015-02-25 at 3.26.03 PM

These two kits are my favorite. I use almost all of these brushes except for that awful paint brush.

I guess I am not talented enough to use a paint brush because I am a pro at leaving streaks on my face when I do try to use this brush.

Anyways I hope you guys enjoyed this post.

Please comment back about the sigma f80 questions because I really want to know if I am the only one with this problem.

I love you guys! Have a happy Wednesday.

The first step is admitting you have a problem.

Okay, I’ll be honest. I’m a makeup junkie.

I love to buy clothes for a bargain, it’s the best feeling, makeup on the other hand is a different story.

I love every last bit of makeup, from drugstore to Dior. (I’ve never tried Dior, but when I’m rich someday I’ll be sure to try it.)

I wanted to show you guys some of my favorite makeup palettes I have tried over the years. I love makeup palettes because you get so many different eyeshadows for a good price… most of the time.

The first one is Urban Decay Naked Palette

In this palette you get 12 different colors: (from left to right) Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, and Gun Metal.

Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 6.17.15 PM Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 6.22.19 PM

The next one is the Lorac Pro Palette. In this palette you get 16 eyeshadows.

The colors are: White, Cream, Taupe, Lt. Pink, Nude, Champagne, Gold, Lt Bronze, Mauve, Sable, Espresso, Black, Pewter, Garnet, Deep Purple, and Slate.

This palette is the best thing in the whole entire world. It’s $42.00 but I would bay twice that amount.

These colors are so pigmented and so beautiful. I just about die every time I use this palette. It’s the bomb. You need this in your life.

Screen Shot 2015-02-08 at 2.39.04 PM Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 6.26.26 PM

Sidenote: The Lorac Pro To Go Palette is pretty too, I just never know what to do with it.

Natural At Night Neutral Eyeshadow Palette by TooFaced is also a beautiful palette. It’s tiny, pretty, and pigmented. So traveling with it is super easy.

The palette has nine colors. The first row has Full moon, Nightcap, and Cocoa Star

The second row has Night Light, After Hours, and Eclipse

The third row has Spotlight, Moon Stone, and Night Fever.

Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 6.37.26 PM

Out of these three palettes I recommend the Lorac Pro Palette. The pigmentation of this palette is out of this world. I should do a whole review on this palette, because it’s my favorite.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post.

I love you!

Thanks for reading! Have a good rest of your day!

Ready for spring.

Okay, who else is ready for spring? I don’t know where you guys live, but I live in Michigan and its blistering cold out.

I love living here though, I live about a mile from lake Michigan and the view of the lake never gets old. The cold does though.

I’m staying at my great grandmas house for the next two weeks, and she doesn’t have WiFi. I’ll try to blog as much as possible.

Right now I’m sitting in Tim Hortons, drinking my over priced caramel latte (three dollars for something that lasts 15 minutes makes me sad). I felt bad not buying something and using their WiFi though.

Anyways, let’s get to the point of this post. I’m really excited to show you guys this outfit. It’s very fun, and is what made me want spring very badly.

I’ll take spring, but this outfit is also perfect for a cruise, so if any of you guys feel like sending me on a nice Mediterranean cruise, do not hesitate. 😛

It’s a jumpsuit! It’s fun, its bold, it’s nothing I’d normally wear, but I’m head over heals for this outfit.

I got this outfit from Cato Fashions, which is beyond affordable. I got this jumpsuit for $34.99. If you think about it though, that’s extremely affordable, because you’re getting the shirt & pants. It’s so exciting!

Can you tell how much I love this outfit?! I actually think it’s more than love. Whatever that is.

Anyways –

Cato Fashions – Jumpsuit – I do suggest going a size or two bigger than what you normally wear.

ONLY if you have big backside. My butt makes Texas look small, so I went up two sizes, because I didn’t want the jumpsuit fitting every curve, I wanted it to flow and be loose.

My jean jacket is from goodwill, you can get one similar online from Charlotte Russe

I hope you guys enjoy this! I also hope it inspires you to be bold and have fun with your wardrobe. After all fashion is about having fun and expressing yourself.

I love you! Have a beautiful Thursday!

Talk to you Soon ❤ ❤ ❤

Saturday’s Outfit

IMG_5877

Today is Sunday, and I am wearing nothing worth posting about. Unless you all want to see my pajamas that I refuse to change out of. So I am posting yesterdays look.

Yesterday I had to work, so I wore a burgundy faux leather jacket, a grey shirt, and the same leggings as the day before.

The jacket I got from Maurices, which is a fantastic store, it is a hit or miss on the prices though. I couldn’t find the exact jacket on the website, but I found one very similar. The jacket I’ll link below is more of a brown though than mine.

My shirt is from JC Penny’s, and of course, I couldn’t find it online. In fact I had a hard time finding anything remotely similar. But I did find a grey shirt that I would wear if I didn’t have this one.

My Leggings are from Target, they’ll always be from target.

Maurices Leather Jacket – on sale for $29.99

Screen Shot 2015-02-08 at 1.33.45 PM

JC Penny’s Grey Shirt – on sale for $12.99 Since the leather jacket above is brown and not burgundy I’d probably wear a white shirt instead of a grey shirt. That’s my personal opinion though.

Screen Shot 2015-02-08 at 1.49.58 PM

Target Leggings – $10.00
