20's style fun!

One of my best friends had her birthday this weekend, and she decided to do a murder mystery theme. Basically its just a game where everyone has their own parts and you have to try to figure out who the murderer is by asking people questions about their character, and trying to bribe people for information! I was actually really hard. But you had to stay in character all night! haha. I was Carrie Crooner Ravioli... and i was married to "Big" Jim Ravioli who was killed at the beginning of the night. haha. It was a blast! but i had the most fun dressing up, and doing the makeup! look out for a makeup tutorial on this look REALLY soon!

Platinum Blond Life...

I told them i bleached my bangs out to platinim blonde... and they were curious to see how it looked! So here are a few photos of that time in my life!

OMG Free Product...

Okay, so... i just wanted to address this really quick because i know alot of people have questions about it, and i know some people DON'T like the idea all together. This blog is specifically for my YouTube subscribers and viewers. Being a beauty guru on YouTube comes with the territory of receiving free product... which is awesome, cool, and fun... I'm not going to lie. BUT... alot of people that watch beauty gurus on a regular basis sometimes feel like they are being lied to because they think...why NOT do a good review if you get a bunch of free stuff!

Okay... The answer to this is NO... i personally DON'T lie to any of you guys about the products i receive free of charge...and i DO 100% honest reviews. Yeah yeah... you hear this all the time. There isn't really any way to prove this i guess. But let me just say a few things.

I ALWAYS tell the company that contacted me that A. I review 100% honestly B. I will NOT do a review if i don't like your products AT ALL..and i will send the products back if requested. C. There might not be a video up for a while because i like to COMPLETELY test the product out and get a full idea of how i like it before i talk about it on my channel OR if i want to talk about it on my channel at all. and D. I always ask if they are willing to do giveaways or anything of that nature for my subbies!

Also, I say NO to WAYYYYY more companies than i say yes to...and i say no before i even get stuff sent!! If People send me products i dont like i tell them i don't like them and i don't want to do the review... even though i feel bad sometimes. haha. I would never sell something like multi-colored hair extensions or acne cream to you guys because for 1 i would NEVER wear multi-colored extensions in my hair... and i don't struggle with acne. ha ha. I think you get the picture!! :)

So i just wanted to mention those few things... just to clear up any questions or concerns. You guys mean ALOT to me, and i would never lie to you... just to get free stuff. Free stuff really isn't that important to me! But i think its cool for you guys to learn about new cool products that i like... that YOU might like too!! That's what the beauty community is for right??

Thanks for reading

Alright... so with that said... i gotta go to work. I'M going to be late!! ha ha

HAUL...For my blog readers EYES ONLY!

So I decided I would treat my blog readers to a special little haul blog because I wanted to show you how much I appriciate your support on my blog!! Has anyone else tried these products?? Thanks for reading beautifuls!

Okay, so the other day I was walking through Wally World (walmart) and I decided I wanted to give myself a mani... but I was sick of all the colors I had. SO... I decided to purchase some cheap polishes just for fun. These were the two I picked out and im obsessed!! they were $2.00s and I am in love. Its the Brand ICE in "spit fire" and "risk taker" I put the glittery spit fire over the top of risk taker and its beyond amazing... its my new fave combo!!!

I got one of the new maybelline eyestudio liners in purple because i LOVE purple eye makeup! it compliments almost any skintone!! the only thing im a little usnure about is the darkness. i havent used it on my eyes yet... but it will be interesting. I will let you know how I like it.

Not alot of people know... but I did buy 2 things from the MAC to the beach collection. I didnt haul it i said it was 2 things. haha. But I was very excited about this line. They only thing i hate is the packaging.. i was a liitle bit dissapointed seeing the baby poop green containers... but I love the colors inside! haha. I got the blush in hipness and the lipstick in Thrills. My husband was obsessing over the lipstick. I wore it outside, and he said it looked like a sunset on my lips... it has alot of gold reflux! i love it!

This lipstick has been mentioned on Youtube multiple times... with great things said... so I had to pick it up!! Im not usually a nude lipstick wearer... but this is great because its a cool toned nude, and looks great with any lip gloss over the top. And like everyone knows... i LOVE Revlon lippies.... couldnt be more in love!

So i found these amazing shoes at Target for about $25.00 I think. I saw them about 2 weeks back tried them on and wanted them but passed because they were a little bit uncomfortable next to the pinky toe... but I went back 2 weeks later, and tried on an 8 1/2 which is one size bigger than what I usually wear.. and they were so much better and fit perfectly!! :) they had them in black too!! love them!!
