New: Yankee Candle Haul

These are all of my favorite candles from the Yankee Candle Co. I decided to get them all at the same time because I was running low on candles and with all the hurricane crap around here, it’s always a good idea for back up lighting!!

Clean cotton was probably my first love, as far as scents are concerned. It smells like laundry, and is way more crisp and fresh off a smell than any of the other cotton fragrances. (I don’t like sea island cotton or whatever it’s called, and the plain cotton one is alright but is lacking.) I kind of enjoy the peace and calm of doing laundry, so that’s part of the joy of this scent; clean linens are the best.

I’ve probably written about Pink Sands in college, it’s the main candle I remember having there. I can’t actually explain this scent. It’s almost fruity, but reminds me of all the beach houses I’ve ever visited.

The other candle is pictured above but you can’t see it too clearly, it’s Sun and Sand. It smells just like summer, sunscreen, tanning, and the hot humidity that I love so dearly about the best season of them all!

These are just extra goodies.

New: Lorac and Lime crime Lipstick

The colors are Lorac’s Wisteria, Rave & Utopia which are both Limecrime. They are all matte lipstick that go on liquid and dry off course.

They are brand new, I’ll do a review of them later on. Haven’t been on here lately cause I’m busy. I hope to do more outfit based posts closer to holidays.

Review: Fake Frenchies by KISS

I didn’t have time to get my nails done before my cousin’s bridal shower, so I had to think quick. I went to Beauty World (a new one just opened really close to me, I love the selection!!) I found out they have a great variety of nails you can glue on. Some look like gel nails, and some are short, long, pointed, round, you name it!

The brand is KISS and it said they would stay on a week, however that’s very false. Even with the KISS glue, they were already falling off the next day after applying them. My right thumb nail came off two or three times, and a couple other nails came off, but I was extremely careful! I thought they would stay on more securely.

Oh well, at least they look really pretty and as if I got them done. I will use them again for special occasions but I don’t think I’ll purchase any more.

Shoes of the day: Public Desire Cinderella Heel

I don’t think they are supposed to be crossed in the front, but I haven’t decided how I like them best. They are pretty comfortable, the transparent style just looks like it would be unstable or hurt,  but don’t judge a book by its cover!

These are my new favorite shoes! I didn’t think I would purchase anymore clear shoes but in person I saw these and fell in love!! They do make feet look larger and you have to pair them with something more conservative for balance. They make me feel like Cinderella, which makes me wanna wear them daily.

Nails of the day: Show Steel-er

This color is amazing! It’s Sally Hansen’s quick dry polish. It does dry fast, it didn’t even feel tacky. It doesn’t even have a bad smell, it’s almost a sweet scent that definitely doesn’t have the typical chemical aroma you associate with polish.

The other day I got pieces of tinsel seen in my hair! I’ve been wanting it for months but my busy summer was in the way of me making a hair appointment!

I picked out pink and blue, and got ten strands put in. They will fall out when my real hair natural comes out of my head. Isn’t that cool?! I really love it.

DIY: Cellulite Scrub

Tags

, , , ,

I noticed some females around my age already have Cellulite, which freaked me out. It’s dents on the back of your thighs that look.. Well, lumpy, because it’s fat deposits that make the pocket affect. I’ve read that men don’t really care about this bumpy look, but I would rather keep my legs looking tight and firm than lumpy and loose, for me, myself, and I !

So here’s all I did:

I put some Louanna scentless, tasteless, coconut oil in an old glass jar (glass ensures the mixture will stay fresh), then I added in a couple tablespoons of ground coffee, straight from the coffee container, and then I added in a bit of ground cinnamon. I whipped it together, and that’s it.

The coconut oil is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, moisturizing, and just a good base for at home lotions and creams. Cinnamon stimulates blood flow, hopefully keeping fat from building up in pools! Coffee grounds also promote circulation and exfoliate skin.

Obviously I’m not a doctor so I don’t know if this will help, especially if you already have cellulite! I am doing this in hopes of NEVER obtaining cellulite cause I don’t find it appealing at all. Doing this for the same reason I try to eat right, excercise, get enough sleep, or anything that involves my own personal well being; wishing to preserve my body before anything gets out of hand lol.

Jewelry of the day: You Suck necklace

Boy, do I wish I could wear this to work! It sums up how I feel about humanity in general! Wouldn’t the clients really understand my true feelings so much better, if only it was approved. Lol. I got this necklace from Claire’s, I guess in high school! It’s still appropriate today though, and always, I’m sure. I wore it to a preppy bar in my hometown, only went out cause my mom and some friends wanted to go. Very fitting! Ha. The place was ultra stuffy, crowded with a bunch of look-a-like boat shoe phonies. But that’s none of my business!! Teehee.

Outfit of the Day: Pink n’ Fish

Happy first day of June! There’s Severe thunder storms in my area so I had to change into wellies before dinner. I know everyone has a dress with this print, at least down here, but when I found it in a pink shift style last summer, I adored it. It is a nice little beach cover up as well.

My hair is extra cute tonight because I wore it up. It’s just folded up and in to my hair band. Awesome how it looks so nice but it took two seconds to stuff into place! Notice also the Simply Southern croakie for my sunglasses around my neck; it comes to a perfect bow in back. If you were wondering what the print is, it is pink zebras!
