Flashback Friday (Monday) Novmeber 2010

Hi again everyone-
I started doing this series last month after seeing Marni (MsGoldGirl) and Kristin (KristinGehm) do them.  I think they are a great idea because a lot of times after we tell you we love something an then do a review and maybe a face of the month you never really see what we think after. I do now tend to talk about products I use all the time more in my Vlog videos. but if you are not in to watching that type of video this is a better option.   You can see what products I still have and use or what I have chained from a few years ago.  I went back 4 years because I thought there was a better chance that my mind had changed (or hadn't) on certain products.
I hope you enjoy and please let m know if you have any questions.

YSL Fusion Ink
Shiseido Dual Balance
Lancome Nude Miracle
Laura Mercier Mineral Powder Loose
Laura Mercier Mineral Powder pressed
Versa Spa Spray
Guerlain Terracotta Tanner
Arbone Skincare
Colleen Rothschild
Items Mentioned-
Cleansing Balm
Eye Cream
Face Oil

Makeup Graveyard Highlighters

Hi again everyone-
This is another video in the Makeup Graveyard series.  I am so excited to get my vanity cleared out and ready for the new year!  :o)  The organizing part alone is fun for me.
I don't have as many highlighters as I do most other things.  I tend to only buy them when I hear others raving and I feel like I have to own them.  Then I end pup getting it and not really using it.  So I actually am getting rid of quite a few of them.
I hope you enjoy and please let me know if you have any questions.

Review Stila In the Light Palette

Hi again everyone-
I picked this palette up during one of the Ulta sales.  Actually I picked it up at Sephroa online and ordered it then I saw a special at Ulta for it, so I returned the one from Sephora and picked it up at Ulta.  I had heard Marnie (MrsGoldgirl) talking about it and the colors looked great.
I will mention that right now the palette is on sale for $20 at Sephora because i have heard it is being discontinued, so rush over and pick one up if you are interested.

Product Break Down:
Pigmentation- 5/5
Texture- 5/5
Longevity- 5/5
Application- 5/5
Packaging- 5/5
Price- 5/5 (even better now that it is $20 at Sephora)
Product Overall- 5/5

Vlog October 25th through the 31st

Hi again everyone-
Another week has come and gone.  I am really enjoying doing these vlogs.  I think that you get to see a bit of what I do every day.  I will say that I am sure it will begin to get boring for you guys since most of my days seem to be the same.  Gym, home, get ready, dinner.  Haha.
A lot of people have requested I start mentioning what I am wearing when I have makeup on, so I have started to do that.  Also people have requested more on my food/dinner ideas and maybe some meal planning.  I will try and add that soon.
Please enjoy and let me know if you have any questions.

Flashback Friday

Hi again all-
I started doing a new series (very slightly different name) that I have seen on YouTube.  I believe Marnie (MrsGoldgirl) started it.  I think it is a super fun way to see what you (I) used to love and where those items are now.  I am surprised at what I think now about the items.  I had a few that I still love and some that I done like or use anymore.  Some you just evolve and chafe your preference of.

Here are my pics: 
Guerlain Extreme now perfection
Urban Decay Naked
Sigma Kabuki- no longer sold
Bare Minerals Mascara:
Flawless Definition
Volumizing
Dior Iconic Overcurl
Too Faced Better Than Sex
Michael Todd Eye Base- no longer sold
Benefit Stay Don't Stray
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Morocan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner
Oribe Shampoo and Conditioner

Take a look and see both videos and what I think!

My video from 2010.
