Glamourlicious Giveaway Prizes =)

Last Thursday I got my lovely gifts from Tara's [at Galmourlicious] Giveaway! My mom say the package and immediately asked "what have your ordered now" LOL... I loved all of the items in my package. Thanks Tara for writing the personalized note... My mom is getting a lot better. From time to time things get stressful, but nothing like it was for me us in the summer months. But back to the giveaway prizes; I loved everything!!! Here's some pics of all the items =)

a cute pink clutch; I chose this from Tara's blog sale page

2 bangles; one is silver the other is gold
[the flash makes it hard to see them]

3 pairs of earrings... all 3 are super cute and fit my style! =)

a leopard print painted cup.. not sure what i will put in here yet

on the inside at the bottom it said "Be you"

here are all the items [and the letter in front] that Tara sent me.

Hip-hop Dating

I saw this vid on a friend's Facebook page... HILARIOUS!! Some people took it kinda serious, I thought the whole thing was funny. At the same time it has some truths to it... some women and men chase after the things they see in TV/videos.

*also, i will be doing a post tonight about my lovely prizes I won from Tara at Glamourlicious =)

♥ Wish List for Fall

In the last few months I haven't really been shopping as much for various reasons. I used to go shopping because I was "bored" and ended up with crap I don't wear/want/need! Shame, I know. So I've decided, after looking through different magazine, I'd come up with a "shopping list" of the items I most want.

Military Jacket

this one is from Target... its super cute so I might have to make a small trip to Target soon =)

Faux Leather Jacket
I love this grey one! Works like black; will go with anything

Vintage Shirts

something about vintage tees make me feel young again! =)


Over-the-knee boots & regular Boots

[this one is over the knee]


I love boots in this color blue!

I want this book!
heard about it... checked out a few pages on amazon.
Seems interesting!

Mid October Haul

I worked extra hours the past few weeks and I swear I got "spending happy" Haven't been shopping in the longest time so I went to Ross which is by my house. I gave myself a budget of $40, and over spent.. BUT I got nice things. I noticed this day that my shopping habits have changed, and my style has changed as well. I looked around in various departments; shoes, women's, juniors, etc... I actually tried clothes one BEFORE buying.. which I wouldn't do 2 yrs ago! Anything that just did not work, didn't get bought! If I truly didn't need it of felt like I would wear it multiple times it was put back on the rack. So here's my lil haul of what I purchased.


Got these from Ross for $23!

This is the dress above... it fits nice. I love it!!

Okay, I've realized that I'm getting a little crazy with my make-up purchases... at work some brands are buy 1, get 1 50% and then I had a coupon for $3 off 2 Maybelline products... needless to say, I stocked up! oops... I only spend less than $30 total from my 2 purchases.. but still.. LOL I need to stop being careless with my make-up buying.... so I'm going to slow it down a little, and use the eye shadows I have [which is now quite a few compared to 6 months ago!] Here is what i got!

Maybelline Eye Studio Color Gleam-  (Limited Edition) Purple RadianceThis was my first time getting one of these palettes. Their creamy/smooth
but get clumpy in the crease kinda fast.. had to re-apply later in the day

Maybelline Eye Studio [ Bronze Blowout // Lawless Lavender]

Maybelline [l-r] Emerald Smokes // Designer Chocolates // Impeccable Greys

kabuki brush- Essence of Beauty brand
love the pink handle/bottom

Britney Spears In Control Curious perfume/lotion/lip gloss set

Have any of you tried any other Britney Spears perfume? Know of any palettes or perfumes I should try?! I love all suggestions!!

Finally Growing Up??

I'm not sure what exactly has happened to me over the last few months... but I have made many changes in the way I act/think and the things I do. I'm assuming thats all apart of growing up right? I've begun to try new clothing styles and make-up looks... buying AND wearing HEELS [I hope hell isn't freezing over...]. and now I've decided to try wearing... a wig! I used to always say i would NEVER wear a weave etc but I was reading over a blog  Healthy Kisses] and the blogger mentioned how occasionally wearing wigs is a great way to protect natural hair! My cousin usually does my hair every 3 or 4 weeks, so that means that roughly 2 weeks each month my hair is in my own hands!! [yikes!] I always try 'natural' styles like braid-outs, flat twists, etc and i would notice from time to time that this style would only last me 2 days and then my hair becomes a chea-pet, then I'm forced to comb it out and it looks frizzy!! :-/ So I went to YouTube to see what half wigs are, checked out a few website and thought "I could totally rock a half wig!!" So later on this week I will go to a local beauty supply store to price and try on a half wig and see how i like it. then if I truly like it I will but it [either in store or online, whichever is cheapest]

At one point I considered getting a sew-in weave but I've been told that the braids do damage to the hair. My main goal is to get my hair to a healthy state, and looong!! After my cousin cut my hair a few months back [here] my hair was at a much healthier state than it had ever been and it quickly began growing since she chopped off sooo much of my slit ends. So long story short, this is my current hair plan. I will of course post pics and a review once I get the whole half-wig thing figured out =)

I may try a half wig similar to the ones below:
Outre Quick Weave- Gladys

Outre Quick Weave- Polly

*both wigs found at
