I’ve Been Gone, But Here I Am :) A Message To You

Hello to my followers, and guests! I have been M.I.A for a while. I have been very busy with graduate school, and teaching. I am in my last semester in the graduate program, and will be graduating with my Masters in May. So I have a lot of exams, research, and writing. I try to multitask as much as I can. But¬†hopefully I¬†will be back soon with my product reviews, clothing styles, and makeup. I have also been occupied with my other blog that is really important to me. If you haven’t checked it out, please do. http://www.feministtalk.wordpress.com Hopefully we will have a wonderful Spring, and I will share with you the many Spring options.

Green Long Cardigan Sweater, Forever 21 Jeans, and Brown Boots

This season I have become overly obsessed with sweaters. I love the different styles this season, and a lot of the different trends are coming back from the 90s. Which I absolutely love. This sweater that I am wearing is the many styles for this winter, and a lot of store sell them for a decent price or over priced. So as always I try to look for a bargain. I bought this particular one from Target, which were priced at $29.99, but I purchased mine for about $14.99. I definitely saved a lot on this cardigan sweater.

My jeans are from Forever 21, and did not cost a lot. Some of their jeans are in the $20-$35 dollar range, but I actually purchased mine for about $10.80. They have a variety of colors and styles for this price. Be sure you know your size if you do not plan on trying them on because their sizes run pretty tight, so I had to go a size up.

Boots are from Discovery, and I got them a while ago, but they still have a lot of brown boots starting from $14.99-$30.00.

New Year’s Eve Gold Makeup Look: Happy New Year Everyone :)

For the first picture, the gold was a bit soft, and not too dramatic. I stuck with my¬†Bare Minerals 8.0 Palette. I used three colors from that palette which are Pret-A-Porter (Gold), Ensemble ( Dark Purple), and Silhoutte (White). ¬†My lashes are real, so I used the Benefit Mascara They’re Real. Which is amazing because it gives you ¬†fullness and length. For my lips I have the Cargo lip gloss in Madrid. It looks burgundy in the tube, but comes off as¬†reddish/pink.

I hardly wear gold, and this was a perfect color to wear to bring in the new year. I didn’t care that I had a silver top on, because mixing silver and gold, isn’t wrong in my opinion.

For this second picture, I put more gold on, and added actual glitter cream from NYX. My lips are different in this picture, so I used my Cover Girl lipstick called Romance.

NYX Glitter Cream Palette $7.00

I know it is late, but I didn’t have time to upload new posts during the Christmas and New Year’s Eve Celebration. Thanks For visiting, and Happy New Year

For some reason I have been purchasing a lot of burgundy. I really like it, and it is a beautiful color to wear. I just recently got some side bangs, which really look great ( I was nervous to get them). I was able to flip my hair to the side with a straightener. Using the same technique as a curling iron, but I believe the straightener is better than a curling tool.

I am wearing a black blazer, You can’t really see it but you probably have seen it, or can see it in my category section of blazers. I have a high waist pants from target that is very flattering to more curvy type bodies. I got it from Target and the tag said 6 fit. Which is not the size, but the number they have created are for a ¬†curvy body type. That way it is easier for your to find your pant size.

Pants- Target (Clearance) $11.00

Top-Embellishments are very cute. New York & CO. (Clearance) $7.49

I used my¬†Two-Faced Palette¬†for my eyes, Benefit MAscara They’re Real, and¬†I used the Benefit brow filler palette.¬†I usually use the same products on my face with a Sephora Concealer, Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation, Powder FX Mineral compact, NYX Blush, and my new favorite bronzer by Cargo. The lipstick I used is more of a burgundy color from Cover Girl, but I used my Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lip Gloss in Confidence, to soften it up a bit.

I am continuing to use my Two Faced palette, and It really does set on my eye-lids nicely. Check out my All Types of Make-up category to see the colors. I forgot the name brand of my liquid eye-liner at the moment, but I got it from Ulta for about $7.00. I fill in my brows with the Benefit brow palette. Which costs about $30.00, but lasts a very long time. I have had it for about 2 1/2 years. My lips also have the Cover Girl, Romance lip color with a lip balm on top from Maybelline called Baby Lips in Peach Kiss (30).

I got my Barrett from Discovery for only $6.99. I seen some of these at Forever 21  ranging from $8-$12.
