Speaking of Beauty

Check out my new beautiful baby girl. My boyfriend and I have been making it work for almost 2 years with only one vehicle and along with adding the mileage to it, we felt like we definitely needed to get a second car. So we did our homework, and shopped around, and compared prices and stats..blah,blah. The long and short of it is, I GOT A BRAND NEW SHINY RED CAR! Thats all that matters right? It make life so much easier. And i have to give the guy extra credit though. I love to shop. That is not news to anyone, but he would take me to the mall any time I wanted and drive me here and there with no complaints. Even though every time he asks how long I'll be in a store i say " 10 minutes tops" and really that means "like 45 min to an hour considering I find what I want and you don't have to take me to 3 other places". I love the guy with all my heart. He is an amazing boyfriend. He supports my addictions to fashion, make-up, Hello Kitty. Im a LUCKY girl. He is a true champ. I love you Ben. We are both huge Manchester United Fans, hence the color. And we are ordering a personalized plate, and Man Utd decal for the back. Just in case my other bf Wayne Rooney is ever in town. He can hitch a ride with me.

Time to play catch up.

So I have been kind of sick this past week, i had some issues with my right eye that were making me sensitive to the light of my laptop. But, Im back, and I am doing much, much better.
 So where do I start. Sunday I went to see Duran Duran in concert. My original boy band!!!  I have to say maybe 90% of my favorite bands are from the UK.  I think that is where the best music comes from. DD are no exception. They put on a great show. Even though it was over 100 deg F, and humid, I danced my butt off. My only complaint is they didn't play my jam ( Girls on Film). Bummer. I tried to take a few videos with my iphone and I'll upload them to my YouTube channel if you want to take a peek at them.

Love BB Cream

So I'm getting ready to se Duran Duran in concert tonight. And it's 100 F+ deg outside, and it's an outdoor show. So I wanted to wear as little makeup on my face as possible. I went to Ulta yesterday and picked up Loreal's Magic Skin Beautifuer BB Cream for under $10. I was a little skeptical about how it would look and feel on my face, but I gotta say. I love this stuff. The texture feels a little grainy at first but it blends really well. And your skin is left with a smooth, soft glowing look. For my skin I used medium. It was the closest one I could find an they didn't have testers. But I think it worked ok. You tell me.

Small price to pay...

Aching feet and hunger pains. Shopping all day can take its toll on a girl. But that is a small price to pay to make another's day beautiful. I had the pleasure to shop for my lovely friend @sweetpealondon1. I'm excited for my first UK swap. And I had a blast shopping today. Tomorrow is another day and I think I'm going to make a few more stops. Now time to soak my feet. ↘sneak peek↙

Coheed and Cambria Show 08/07/12

My bf is a huge fan of Coheed and Cambria.  Ive had a chance to see them in concert three different times. Coachella 2010, in San Antonia TX in 2011, and Last night here in Tucson. If you have never heard of them. Check them out on YouTube. Mostly hard rock, But Claudio Sanchez ( Lead vocals) has a beautiful voice and some of the slower music is very melodious. Any how, the show was amazing!! at one point Claudio picked up a crutch from someone in the audience and used it to play his guitar (like a cello). Awesome right? I have a you tube link below, and you can check out some of my videos from many different shows, including Radiohead @Coachella, Morrissey,  Keane, etc. Next Concert DURAN DURAN on Sunday. Stay Tuned!

Recent Beauty Swap :)

So its about time I posted about my recent beauty swap with my dear friend Yessie @cinnamonandzoeykisses (check out her blog).  I was super excited to get my box which had some really cool beauty products. 

1. First and my absolutely new favorite must have, Philosophy "The color of Grace" Shimmer powder. I have been using it everyday. It gives my skin a soft pink sheer shimmer that does wonders for my face. I've gotten so many compliments. Patients tell me my skin looks amazing and radiant. I can't get enough of it !!
2. NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Eyeshadow Dust in a copper/bronze color. (sorry i peeled the label off) But It looks great on both the little bottle and on skin. 
3. ELF Baked Bronzer in Maui. I brush some on whenever my face needs some glow. No one wants to look washed out, right? Its summer in AZ so my skin is really dark right now, but I swatched these products from left to right (Philosophy Shimmer Powder, Elf Bronzer in Maui, MYX Eyeshadow Dust, and Jordana Lip Out Loud Gloss in BFF) 
4. LIP GLOSS!! Jordana Lip Out Loud Gloss in BFF.  What else can I say?? Its bright, Pink, and kind of has a watermelon-y taste. I love it!! 

5. Not one but TWO mascaras! Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Pop of Purple. I had mentioned that I wanted to try the purple one and next thing I know, there it is. A sure sign that my friend listens to me. <3  and Jordana Mascara in Black. I have been using this daily. Its light and coats my lashes evenly and doesn't clump. which is very important to me, because I have very short sparse lashes. So I like something like this that coats and darkens, but doesnt give me the spider lash look. 
6. There are two things I love, Vanilla and Coconut. Bath and Body Works has the best smelling stuff. I love Vanilla lotions. 
7.Nu Pore Collagen Essence Mask. I will use this this weekend. When I can sit in my chair and relax. 
8. Miso Pretty Blotting Papers. Every one should have a stash of these in their purse, desk, car. You never know what life is gonna throw at you or who you will run into. Because theres shiny happy people, and gross shiny people. Know the difference. 
9. Two nail polishes Wet 'n Wild Polish in Steel the Spotlight and Sinful Colors Polish in Fuji.

Hope you enjoyed this, if you haven't tried some of these products, check them out I'm sure you will like them.
