My favorite body scents

Hi guys! This is a fun post I decided to do, just because. Also if you haven’t noticed, there’s a new layout. It’s also just kinda fun. I’ll most likely go back to my other type layouts in a few weeks but I missed this type of layout. It gives a more personal feel, I think. Anyway, back to the point of the post. My favorite perfumes (that I own).

Most of them are from Victoria’s Secret. I am very upset because my favorite perfume of all time has been discontinued. It’s the tall red bottle in the back called ‘Love Rocks’. I wish I could explain how it smells, but it is perfection. Imagine what perfection smells like and that’s what it is. I’m also upset because they’ve discontinued the ‘Beauty Rush’ line of fragrances, and those were my favorite before I found Love Rocks. I liked the original ones that were half/half. I am not sure how they did it, but the color part literally floated on top of the clear part in the bottle. Then they changed the formula and made it all clear but tried to trick you by making the sticker on the bottle have the gradient you’re looking for. Still great smelling, though. Just lacking the main aspect of why I originally liked them. However, that’s pointless now because they’re completely discontinued. :(

This isn’t really a review since I’ve had these all for a bit now. I’m actually on my second bottle of the Britney Spears perfume (Small pink circular bottle in the front).

From left to right, row back to front:
Victoria’s Secret Sheer Love, Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush in Secret Crush, Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush in Appletini, Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush in Wild Kiss, Victoria’s Secret Love Rocks, Victoria’s Secret Love Spell Bloom, Paris Hilton, Bath & Body Works Cucumber Melon body spray, Britney Spears Fantasy, and Pleased. :)

Thanks for visiting, and have a great day!

Mini Lipstick Haul

I went to my work today (Target) on my day off. Yeah, how fun. Anyway, I thought “I don’t own enough lipsticks” so I went and picked a couple out. I’m really happy with what I got for the most part. I absolutely LOVE Covergirl’s Sultry.

You know, looking at this picture makes me think more of a grandma color. It’s actually a little more pink in real life and also more nude-ish. I guess I like it because it’s not too bright and it’s a wearable everyday – every look color.



(Sorry for the lack of focus on this one but the color is still accurate)


I really enjoy these and I’ll be wearing them a lot more. I just have to get lip liners since I literally have NONE. Absolutely zero of them. I don’t usually wear lipstick though, but I’m trying to get into it. I usually just wear clear lipgloss.

I wanted to get a burgundy color and a plum and a more neutral lip color. I’ll just have to go back since I get a 15% discount. <3

My favorite time of year

Halloween is just around the corner and I cannot wait. :) It’s my favorite time of year, seriously.. It’s raining, it’s cold, and it’s all amazing. :) Cold weather is absolutely amazing. Oh, I know I’ve been kinda non-existant lately, and I apologize. >.< I will get to all of the advertising, affiliate requests, and comments like right now.

ANYWAY, on a fantastic note, on Halloween I’m going to a costume party. My boyfriend, Josh (My best friend), Linda (A good friend) and Linda’s dog, Zero are all doing a collaboration type thing with our costumes. Linda is going to be the Queen of Hearts, Josh is going to be the Cheshire Cat, My boyfriend is going to be the Mad Hatter, Zero is going to be the White Rabbit and I’m going to be Alice. (Lol)

Last night I was playing with make up trying to come up with a look for my costume and this is what I came up with. I really liked it, but I hope I can recreate it on Halloween. And I hope it doesn’t rain at the party because it’s partially outside, too. *sigh* We’ll see.

What makes someone beautiful?

Is it their looks? Is it their personality? Is it their ability to do things? Is it them? What is it? I think I’ve finally found the answer. I logged onto my facebook and I see my friend, let’s say Jackie, yeah her name is Jackie for now. My friend Jackie posted this status about how much she wanted to be skinny and how skinny girls are the prettiest and the most attractive. That post really bothered me because I felt really offended. I am not the skinniest thing alive and I’ve accepted it. Yeah, I’m overweight, but fuck I live in America. America is a continent on Earth, Earth is just a fraction of the size of the Sun. The Sun is only a molecule in the universe. Compared to all of that, why should we care what size we are?

So I commented on her status and said “Sure you can be skinny and pretty, but it takes more than that to be beautiful.” All she could say was “Well, I don’t feel very beautiful.. or attractive.” I told her that even if she was skinny she would find something to criticize herself for and that she still wouldn’t find herself beautiful. It’s taken me almost 10 years to figure this out. I should probably heed my own advice. However, I cannot stand someone who blatantly calls themselves ugly just for attention. I feel no one should be treated like that, no matter what they look like, because well. Everyone is beautiful. Whether you are 100lbs or 400lbs. It doesn’t matter. Nothing matters because life itself is beautiful. You shouldn’t beat yourself or anyone else down for not fitting the mold society has crafted.

This is me 3 months ago. Since then I've lost weight and I'm beautiful no matter what.

To be happy is to be beautiful. Happiness is beauty. Life is beauty. You are the definition of beauty. Stay beautiful.

The most anticipated moment of my life

I went today to Oakland to a beautiful tattoo shop called Sacred Tattoo. The really nice lady, Ms.Dee (I think that was what her name was) was so kind! She’s a family/friend. I am seriously like in love with her right now, aha. :) Also, when I turn 18 in January, I’m getting this tattooed on me. He said he’d do it for $100 (bigger and with full detail) which is a fantastic deal. :D

Anyway, more about my industrial. LOL. It’s ‘the most anticipated moment of my life’ because I have seriously wanted it since I was 12. I’m 17. 5 years, I’ve wanted this fucker. Let me tell you, it was well worth the wait. If I would have gotten it when I was 12, I would seriously have cried, LOL. It really wasn’t that bad. The second hole hurt a lot worse but it was bearable. I just hope I can sleep, she said with the two temporary bars I’d be able to lay on them without them hurting incredibly bad, so I’ma take her word for it. View full size image.

When it does finally heal (after 3 months+ X_X) I’m going to order this. It’s so fucking cute and I’m in love with it. My friend who went with me got her chin pierced. See that here. It was a crazy thing to watch, i’ll tell you that. :) She’s so stoked, too. haha.

OH, before I forget, on the way home I thought I lost my $400 phone and I didn’t notice it was gone until we were back in my town, stopping to get something at the store. I was like freaking out because it wasn’t in my purse or on my body. We spent like 5 minutes looking and figuring out if I had left it at the restaurant or not. >_< It was under the seat and it had fallen down into the passenger side from the console. D: Scared the crap out of me. I know this is a long blog, but bare with me because I really haven't blogged in like 2 weeks. More updates:

  • I’ve finally stopped biting my nails!

  • I dyed my bangs blue (as in the picture). You can view that better here.
  • Last but not least, I’ve lost 16 lbs :D

    ICING Glitter Review + Swatches

    ICING is a sub-company founded under Claire’s.

    Claire’s aims towards more little kids while ICING aims towards teenagers and young adults. Therefore, ICING is basically anywhere a Claire’s is. I have found that ICING actually has pretty decent make up and accessories. I have had this little glitter tower for almost 2 years now and, I never use it, but when I do I am simply amazed at how good and opaque it is. The colors are bright, and when applied with a good adhesive, it will be very pretty!

    Hard Candy vs L’Oreal

    I am reviewing and contrasting Hard Candy’s “Welcome Matte” finishing pressed powder and L’Oreal’s “True Match Super Blendable” powder.

    Who will win? :)

    Obviously, I’ve had the L’Oreal powder longer because it’s almost gone. That is why I purchased Hard Candy’s Welcome Matte. Hoping to find a dupe for cheaper. :) Did I find it?
