Monday Night Dinner

I've never done a food post on my blog, other than the picture of funnel cake from my trip to Fair Park. Today was a busy day, I woke up at ten in the morning (which for me if I'm not going to school is way too early), I ate breakfast at my cousins place while watching The Devil Wears Prada, which is an excellent film. Then we went to the mall right after the movie, we stopped by Sears, Macy's, Sephora, JcPenneys, MAC, Forever 21.. SO many stores! Then we had to take care of my cousins cousin, he was so cute by the way. He was a couple of months old! One of the cutest baby's ever! Then I went to get my hair done and then I finally ate. My father invited me out to dinner at La Madeline. It's a very nice restaurant. Not expensive either. We ordered the same things and the total was around $32! The meal in the center was disgusting. I hate broccoli. Broccoli pretty much ruined the whole meal. I stuffed myself with the Potato soup (which is AMAZING, you must try it) and a bunch of bread with jam. The hot chocolate was amazing as well. Next time, I'll remember to not order that. I honestly forgot the name. My Monday was pretty exciting, my life is very boring so today was a change for me. Hopefully there are more days like these. Thanks for reading loves! xo

Haul: Walgreens and Dollar Tree + Update!

So before I go ahead and get right into the haul I want to apologize for not making a post practically all month. I can't say I've been busy because I haven't. I've just been using other websites and just kept procrastinating about making a post on my blog! The procrastination ends now. I'm hoping to be back for good- not being back for a month then not making a post for two months, no. I'm going to start taking my blog seriously. I love blogging and this is my only way to blog at the moment. I love you all! x

Now that my little update is done, I'll be doing a really quick haul. I went to Walgreens and Dollar tree today and picked up a couple of goodies I though I'd share with you all! I have a really good "dupe" for something in this haul as well! So keep reading if you want to save up to $84 dollars (:

Alright, so the first picture is everything I got from Walgreens and Dollar Tree. The second and third picture are the things I got from Walgreens. I only got four things. Cotton balls, two Sinful Colors Proffesional nail polishes, and a LE WNW Color Icon palette.
The first nail polish is a very pretty silver glitter polish called "Queen of Beauty" and the second and last nail polish I got is a beautiful silver metallic color called "Out of this World". I got both of these colors to wear on Thanksgiving, which in the United States is this Thursday (I have the whole week off! Yay!) Then I got cotton balls, which is boring. Just jumbo generic cotton balls to remove nail polish. The last thing I bought was the new WNW Color Icon Palette in Sugar Plum Fairy. I saw Stephanie's post (blog linked here) on some WNW palettes she picked up and I thought this was one was gorgeous. Lately, I've really been loving purple eye shadow so this is perfect. If you want swatches, I'll do a review once I start using it!

Now the Dollar Tree part. If you don't already know Dollar Tree is probably the only dollar store where everything is $1. Everything, nothing is $5, $4, $3, $2, or even $1.09. Everything is $1 or less! I love it, I spent $20.24 in total (but some things were for my mom and I got a bunch of snacks that I didn't include here) so I'm only showing beauty related things :P
So the first thing I got was a pack of 6 mini packs of tissue so I can take it to school now that I have a really bad cold! Then, I got a pack of makeup remover wipes. I really like the Target brand Up & Up ones but I saw these so I thought why not try it for a buck? I haven't tried it quite yet, but when I do I will be doing a review! Then I got a little loofah for you know, showers haha. I also got some nail polish remover since I've been really into nail polish and I'm running low on the one I'm using now! Now for the I guess you would call it dupe. The Daisy by Marc Jacobs dupe. The brand is called Jean Phillippe Paris. I'm sure you've seen these generic perfumes at dollar stores before, I know I have. I saw it and I was like "Oh! I love Daisy!" So I smelled it and I swear it smells EXACTLY the same! It's ONLY one dollar. If you like Daisy I reccomend this! Even though I already own Daisy by Marc Jacobs I thought either I can give it to a friend or keep it in my purse for touch ups! Then I got the generic version of Anais Anais by Cacharel. My mom used to use this ALL THE TIME when I was around three and four years old, I even remember spraying it in my eyes because I was curious.. Oh how stupid I was. It smells nice and floral so I had to get it!

I hope you guys enjoyed this haul, if you want a review or comparison of anything just let me know in a comment! Thanks for reading lovelies! xo

Boredom has finally caught up with me once again. I was extremley bored so I took a lot of pictures; very random pictures.

Enjoy! (Kind of) xoxo


I know, a very random post. I'll be posting a October Favorites very soon! Hopefully by tomorrow! BTW, follow me on twitter! I'm using my old one which is @stopbeingawhore! Thank you all for reading and commenting my posts! <3

Transdesign Nail Polish Haul! OPI + China Glaze

(from l-r: china glaze for audrey, opi got a date to-knight, opi done out in deco, opi tickle my france-y, opi over the taupe, opi you don't know jacques, opi lincoln park after dark, opi my private jet)
Last monday I ordered from Transdesign and bought 8 nail polishes, shipping was EXPENSIVE. It was $20 to ship 8 nail polishes! I ended up spending a little over $60! That's crazy, but hey, I did it. I am very glad I did. The colors are all so gorgeous! I'm currently wearing "My Private Jet" which I painted two days ago and there has been NO chipping! Which for me, is crazy. I do a lot with my nails, including biting and they usually chip in like the first hour. Oh yeah, and the main reason I even bought My Private Jet because it is Kim Kardashian's favorite nail polish color.. (:

As you can see the color is absolutely gorgeous! I am obsessed with looking at my nails now (I know, conceited) What do you think!?

What are your favorite nail polishes? Do you like OPI? Have you tried OPI?

Sephora + MAC Haul!

Recently I ordered off Sephora, MAC, and another online store (I'll do a haul in a different post!) I was so excited to get everything in. Everything was here by Thursday. I ordered everything Monday, everything was shipped so fast! If you haven't ordered off Sephora, I advise you do if you're looking for a great deal! They're currently having a 20% off everything sale, which ends the third of November I think. I'm not quite sure so hurry! Here's everything I got!

(from l-r: MAC pro longwear concealer, bare minerals prime time foundation primer, NARS laguna bronzer, Stila lip glaze set)

Sadly, I only got one thing from MAC which I really did need. A concealer. The pro longwear is their newest concealer which came out last month, I think. It's amazing. I haven't tried out any other MAC concealers, but this is definitely the best concealer I've ever ever tried. Well, that's a lot to say for only using it twice.. Still, I cannot stress my love for it enough. If you're looking for a great concealer I highly suggest this one. The price isn't that bad, and I swear it will last you a life time. It takes so little to conceal everything. The only con I can say about this product is the pump. We all love pumps, I know, I know. But a pump on a concealer that is full coverage isn't the best idea. It pumps out WAY too much. Even when I am trying so hard not to pump a full pump a lot comes out! Other than that I cannot complain.

I finally bought the oh-so-famous NARS Laguna bronzer. I needed a good bronzer, now that I've decided I am loving bronzer. I love the color; it's not too orange and not too muddy. It's perfect. I'm not too knowing of bronzers but I do know that this is just lovely. (:

(sorry about the picture! the flash kept messing me up, forcing me to take almost 40 pictures of this little thing!)
Online this looked a lot bigger, I expected it to be a lot bigger. I was dissapointed when I opened my Sephora package, I guess I shouldn't have expected a lot when it only cost around $6. It comes with 0.5 fl oz which isn't bad at all! Most foundations and primers come with 1.0 fl oz which is only two times bigger. I tried it this morning and it works great! It's a lot thinner and more runny than smashbox photofinish primer but once it's all blended it feels the exact same. I am loving it! Hopefully it doesn't break me out!

 (Colors + Swatches from l-r: Majesty, Guava, Merry Merry, Seashell, Blush, Grapefruit, Apricot, Kitten)
I am super excited to wear them all! A lot of the colors look really similar but that's totally cool because they're all gorgeous colors anyways! I am probably most excited about Merry Merry, it's a nice sparkly red. I never wear reds, so that shall be interesting. They are all super smooth and NOT sticky! I was so suprised about that! I honestly thought they were all going to be extreamly sticky! They're not at all. They're super creamy. All the colors are very lovely. This was only $25! Plus the 20% off makes it $20 which makes it a super steal!
