I Thought She Died...

Hello my amazing followers yes it is true I came back from the dead! I know it has been way too long since my last post but I hope you all can understand my situation, and with that said I feel like I should delete my previous post because that just brings back unnecessary memories.

Anyways school is in session now not to mention I am looking for a new job so I will try my best to blog as frequently as I can.  I also got a new puppy!  I got him about two months ago and he makes me so happy.  His name is Kona and he is a little yorkie and he is so so cute I will have to put a picture up of him in my next post!

I am so glad to be back!! Did I even need to say that?

On a different note, I recently was looking through my stash of makeup and I am happy with it but of course I want more LOL!  Before I start buying more, though, I was thinking of getting rid of some of the things that I don't use.  I don't feel like I am completely ready for a blog sale because honestly, I don't know how the whole paying thing would work.  Yeah i know paypal but I am not computer smart haha so it all seems a little confusing.  I do want to try it first and then maybe in the future I will have an actual blog sale.  If anyone has had a blog sale before I would be so grateful if you would email me and explain to me how to set it up.

Now, I want to test this whole sale thing out with one product but in order for me to sell it I would have to know how everything works.  This product is MAC Azalea Blossom Blush Ombre from the Spring Forecast Collection.  Are any of you interested?  If you all are I will get into more detail about the product however I can say that it has never been used.

To wrap it all up, if someone could email me about the blog sale ordeal that would be awesome and if any of you are interested in the product feel free to comment below.  Lets just say this is a preview and if enough people (meaning at least one person LOL) wants it I will probably make a new post just for the blush ombre.

I missed all of you and THANK YOU SO MUCH to my new followers I cannot believe I am over 100, it is insane to me!  Maybe there will be a future giveaway? ;)

FOTD: Turquoise Jewel

I got a lot of positive feedback from my first FOTD so I thought I would try it a second time  :)  As you can tell from the title, this is a colorful look. I hate to admit it but I used to buy colored eyeshadow just because it was pretty. Shame on me... I know. But it's summer time now and I want to play with some of my bright shades. I usually just dust on a very neutral eye and then pop some color on the bottom lash line but today that was not the case.

Maybelline Superstay Concealer
Prescriptives Mineral Foundation (only to set the concealer)
NYC Plaze Pink Blushable Creme Stick

Closeup (I took this without flash because with it on it totally washed out the color... hopefully you can kind of see the crease work)

NYX Milk Jumbo Pencil
Palladio Sky Blue Eyeliner
Maybelline Turquoise Jewel Eyeshadow
MAC Carbon Eyeshadow
MAC Soft Brown Eyeshadow
Loreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner
NYX Disco Queen Glitter Liner
Rimmel Max Volume Flash Mascara

Revlon Peach Petal Super Lustrous Lipgloss

 Sorry for the cheesy smile LOL I couldn't keep a straight face!  The same thing happened last time... I took a ton of pictures and only like these few. I would have taken more but the camera died. So anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed this and once again, I apologize for the quality. I think I might just do one more of these until I get a better camera. You know what they say... three is the lucky number  :)

8 Questions Tag!

I was tagged by the lovely Ariel to do this and I am excited!  The way this tag works is really interesting. So the person who tags you makes up eight questions and once your finished with answering theirs, you come up with eight of your own questions.

1. What is your dream job?
My dream job and what I will be studying for is to become a nurse. More specifically, I want to be a labor/delivery RN because well... I love babies! They are so freaking cute LOL! I also want to find a part time 'job' as a puppy sitter (and there is such thing as a puppy sitter... my friend worked as one!) I would love to sit around for several hours and play with puppies... what more could you ask for?

2. What is your favorite fragrance for summer?
I didn't have to think about this for more than a second. It's my newest fragrance... DKNY Be Delicious! I used to always smell it in Sephora and as you all know I finally purchased it in my last haul. I am obsessed with it and I got a ton of compliments! Absolutely perfect for summer!

3. How do you take your coffee/tea?
I like my coffee with cream and sugar.  I feel like that's a really obvious answer as I'm sure many people like theirs with cream and sugar but I always eye how much of each I put in so I can't tell you how many spoonfuls and stuff like that.  I also like the flavored coffee creamers like hazelnut or french vanilla.  I like my tea plain... I used to add just a little bit of honey in there but now I'd rather do without it.

4. What is your most important beauty secret?
Less is more. I think make up is something that is supposed to be used to enhance ones beauty and not to cover it up by piling on foundation and powder and so on.

5. If you had an all-expenses paid vacation anywhere, where would you go?
I would go to the Philippines! My boyfriend is half filipino and he is always telling me how  much he loves it there and how nice the beaches are. We are hoping to go later this year so an all-expenses paid vacation would be amazing LOL!

6. If a genie popped up in your lap right now and offered you 3 wishes, what would they be?
My first wish would be that all my family members are healthy and happy. Second wish would be to have my old dog back. He was a pomeranian named Prince and he was my baby but we had to give him away. And lastly, I would wish to be rich!  Who wouldn't?

7. If you could only have breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert foods for the rest of your life, which would you pick?
Probably dinner because there are a variety of foods you could eat whereas breakfast consists of pancakes and waffles and when I think of lunch I think sandwich haha... that's weird.

8. If you were Hello Kitty, what color hairbow would you wear?
LOL what a cute question! I guess if I were Hello Kitty I would wear a black hairbow because black goes with everything  :)

Now for my questions...
1. What are three things you love about yourself?
2. Where are your favorite places to shop?
3. If you have a tattoo(s), what is it and why did you get it? If you don't have one, what would you get and why?
4. Where do you see yourself in 15 years?
5. If you could live somewhere for a month where would it be?
6. What is one thing that you could eat everyday?
7. What are some things you like most about having a blog?
8. If you could choose to have all the products of one cosmetic line, which one would you pick and why?

I tag...

A Little Bit Of Everything

Remember when I told you all that I was upset and that shopping makes me feel better? Well, one thing in that sentence has changed. I am happy camper once again and everything in my life is back to normal now... thank you all for your kind comments  :)  Anyways, shopping did make me feel better and man did I shop!

I didn't have enough time to take a picture or swatch each and every product but no worries because I listed them below!

NYC Blushable Creme Sticks: Plaza Pink and South St. Seashell
Covergirl Smoothers Tinted Moisturizer
Urban Decay Ammo Eye Palette
Diorshow Waterproof Mascara
Lancome Oscillation Powerbooster

I also got a new fragrance for summer that I LOVE!
It smells amazing and is perfect for the hot weather because you just feel so fresh with it on!

And onto the last thing that I am extremely excited about...A new phone! I have been wanting a new phone for so long and right when I was about to get one I was given this and I love it! Just a LG Neon... nothing high tech or touch screen or anything like that... and that's just how I like it LOL! It's simple and cute and I wouldn't ask for anything more. Now if I had my boyfriend's phone I think I would go crazy... way to confusing for me!

So that's my latest haul! I am positive that I will be reviewing some of these products but if you want me to review a specific one then leave them down in the comments and you will see a review in a near post  :)

Attempting My First FOTD...

I know I told you all in my everything ramble that my next post was going to be a haul... well not quite yet. I like to order online a lot and things are taking forever so hang in there because it's coming  :)

Meanwhile, I was overly excited about getting a new camera but I doubt that's going to be soon so I decided to give my old cam one more chance. I tried taking a close up of my eye but there would always be this shadow thing and without flash you couldn't see the colors at all and blah blah blah... it just didn't work!  I was so frustrated! Calm down May haha.

So I've said this before that I am a total neutrals girl and I have done and loved many brown smokey eyes and this is just another one to add onto the list. 
What's up with the tacky lip pout?I didn't even realize LOL!  Oh and don't mind my horrible eyebrows... I was trying something different and I hate it but it's too late to fix them now.

Coastal Scents Medium Camo Quad
Prescriptives Mineral Foundation (only to set the concealer)
NYX Barely There Eyeshadow (I use it as a highlight... it's gorgeous!)
ELF Peachy Keen Blush

Stila Bronze Smudge Pot
Hard Candy Intergalactic Eyeshadow
MAC Soft Brown Eyeshadow
MAC Carbon Eyeshadow
MAC Gesso Eyeshadow
Wet 'n' Wild Black Cream Eyeliner
Covergirl Lashblast 

NYX Natural Lipliner
MAC C-Thru Lipglass

I took SO many pictures and only ended up liking two of them, go figure. But I hope you guys enjoyed my first ever FOTD. I probably won't be doing this again for a little while because of the camera issue but I must admit... I really liked this :)  Please give me feed back and let me know what you think!

2. I have four piercings and one tattoo but that's still not enough for me LOL. It's true what they say...tattoos are addicting even if they hurt!

3. I usually don't drink anything when I'm eating a meal. I get scolded all the time but it just feels weird to.
