The 3 Amigos....Or Not?


I've discovered that I own 3 different lip glosses that have the flavour of kiwi. The first one is a coloured gloss that  is made by YoYo, the second is a clear gloss made by Lip Smacker, and the third one is a balm that is also made by lip smacker. I thought these 3 glosses put together would make the ultimate gloss so I put them all on at the same time. Let me just tell you that it was really gross! Individually they're good but together they suck.

I Don't Do Vintage




(Scary store window)
 I thought I should try vintage shopping so I decided to go to a vintage store called I Miss You. I Miss You sells mostly designer vintage clothing. It was cool but I didn't buy anything. As I continued to shop I saw two stores that scared me to death. The first one I saw was vintage, the stuff in the store reminded me of the stuff I would find in my grandmother's attic. The store sold stuff like weird cat statues, old shoes, and typewriters. The store that really scared me had half-dressed barbies and Yoda in their window. I didn't even bother going in! Then I found myself in a bakery/deli that had everything from macaroons to Advil. I came to the  conclusion that I don't like vintage shopping so I called it a day, went home and put on my good new Holister tee.

The Sea Of Coach

 I was scanning through the Coach website when I noticed that a lot of their items are blue. For me blue really works with this season because it's bright but doesn't take it over the top. Above in the pic, are a few blue items from the Coach store. Ride the wave!

Candy Without Calories


I have a lip gloss called Crushed Candy, it smells and tastes so good. It has a minty flavour which is really good for putting on after you've brushed your teeth because minty breath does not go with mango flavoured lips.
As I mentioned before it has an amazing smell and almost, I repeat almost, makes you feel like you have a mint in your mouth. This gloss is made by Maybelline and makes you REALLY want to eat candy.

Pages Of Style

I was out looking for a new novel to read when I found the book "Lauren Conrad Style" written by Lauren Conrad. The cover of the book was enough for me to buy it because it's all simple and shiny like a Mac computer. I flipped through the pages and found amazing fashion and beauty advice. The pics in the book were amazing too. When I got home I started reading right away and I was amazed because it had everything from how to pack clothes to how to apply mascara. It's full of everything anyone who likes fashion would need to know and love.

Star Light, Star Bright

I love watching the Grammy's red carpet because it's so "interesting" from extremely patterned dresses to Lady GaGa being carried in a egg. Over all my favourite outfits were Katy Perry's, Jennifer Lopez's, and Selena Gomez's mostly because they all stood out but weren't over the top. They were also all shimmery which adds a glamorous touch while also being really fun!

Two Is Better Than One

It's Valentine's Day which means it's the ultimate day of love and also in my opinion, lip gloss. The reason being that if you're lucky enough to be going out on a date there is a pretty good chance you're gonna be wearing lip gloss and if you're not wearing lip gloss you'll probably be wearing lip balm or lipstick. 
Since on Valentine's Day two is always better that one this lip gloss by CoverGirl is perfect because it has 2 steps. The first step is a colour gloss and the second step is a clear gloss to go on top of the colour. This lip gloss is amazing the first time you use it but the second time you use it it will make your lips peel. Also I've    read that you can use lip gloss as an eye shadow but my advice isuf
 don't even dare try that with this one it will make your eye swell and turn red. ( I speak from an ugly experience. ) 

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I Heart The Stars

You'd think, based on the picture, the tittle should be I heart the sun but suns and stars are the same thing.        ( You see I paid attention in astronomy. ) Really it says stars because tonight are the Grammys and all the stars will be walking the red carpet in their ultra glam outfits. The colour of the carpet brings me to Valentine's Day which is why I had to buy these really cute heart-shaped sunglasses from www.fredflare.com. I've realized now that there isn't really much use for sun glasses in February but come on they're pretty awesome.

Personal Trainer In My Pocket

Jogging isn't bad but it seems to be, you know, repetitive. So when I found out about Nike's personal trainer app NTC I was so exited. On this app you can choose from strengthening to focusing workouts. Besides the fact that it gives you amazing exercise this app is free and after logging minutes you get rewards like smoothie recipes!   ( Which for me was the best part. ) To sum it all up this app is amazing mostly 'cause you don't even have to leave your house.

Muffins V.S Lip Gloss

This weekend I tried coconut, mango muffins. Not the best if I do say so myself, but I found something much better with the same tropical goodness. It's the Body Shop's mango and coconut lip butter. These little things smell amazing and fit in your purse. ( Imagine carrying a coconut in your bag. )
They leave a sheer glowing coat, moisturizes, and makes you wish you were on a tropical island lying on a beach.

Time For A Facial

Snow days rock! Even though I spent a little bit of time shoveling I had time to give myself a facial. I found the recipe online below are the instructions.

Ingredients:
1/4 cup plain yogurt; chilled

3-4 strawberries; mashed

Instructions:
Stir ingredients together. Apply to freshly cleaned face and gently massage strawberry mixture to exfoliate. Wash off with warm water after 10 minutes and pat dry.


I found the recipe at http://www.wittyliving.com/recipes/facial-mask-recipes.html.My only advice would be make sure you really smush the strawberries so you don't end up with lumps of strawberries on your face. ( I speak from experience.)
