I have to say first of all, sorry for not updating. My life has been soo crazy since the summer. The primary reason is because of school, I love it but it has taken most of my time. That's ok because I know one day it would be all worth it. I am halfway to finishing the cosmetology program at my school, I am super excited!! I love it so much and I just wished I hadn't waited so long to finally make my passion a career. Ok so we have done some awesome contests over the past few months and I have won some or come close but to say the least I have participated and I feel confident with makeup and hair. Here are some pictures...hope u enjoy!!

You should try them out! In my opinion they are one of the best e/s out there because they are soo pigmented.

Disappointing Haul from B-Lush...

I bought these two color wheels from a cosmetic company online and I just have to say I am very disappointed in the customer service from them...the eyeshadows are very pigmented and I do like the eyeshadows but because of the customer service I will never order from them again! The reason I am not happy is because I never got a shipment confirmation or a tracking number and I emailed the owner and she told me that orders where behind for whatever reason and said I would receive a shipping confirmation in a couple of days and I never received any emails after about 2 weeks I emailed her again and said that this was very unprofessional and not good business. I never got a reply but just a couple of days ago I finally received it in the mail...after like a MONTH!!! I placed the order around April 22 and recieved it this week on May 21st!!! I was not going to blast this cosmetic line but I feel like people should know, so it won't happen to them too! here is the website

I found another cosmetic line that sells these the exact same I think I will order from them for my next purchase even though the price is a little higher! but it is soo worth it to get it faster and good customer service ....

so if you have any questions please feel free to comment below.

NOTICE: These are my opinions/experiences!!

Drugstore Haul..

This is from awhile back but I just wanted to share with you!!! I got...

-Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation in 200(Soft Beige)
-Rimmel London Fix & Perfect foundation primer in 001
-H.I.P Jelly Balm in Plush
-H.I.P Cream eyeliner in Black
-Wet'N Wild liquid eyeliner in #862

I got TAGGED!!!

I got tagged by the lovely Jenni (This Mommy's Spot)

The Rules:
1. Put the logo in your blog
2. Write five things you are passionate about apart from blogging
3. Tag 5 people on your lists and let them know you tagged them.

Things that I am soo passionate about....

1. God/Jesus/Church- I believe in God and I would not be here without Him. My life used to be lifeless before I knew Him, once I met Him my life literally turned around. I am truely grateful for my life! I know I would not be here if I did not meet Him.

2. My Family- I love my family, they mean so much to me! I don't know what I would do without them. We are so close and would never trade that in for the world.

3. My Boyfriend (soon to be Fiance)- We are high school sweethearts and we practically saw each other grow up, we have been through a lot and I don't ever regret meeting him. I want to spend the rest of my life with him.

4. Friends- I don't have many true friends but I am soo thankful for the few loyal ones that I do have. A friend means so much to me and I don't ever take that for granted.

5. Makeup- I love makeup and have played with it since I was a little girl. I started to use it when I was in middle school but about 3 years ago I really became passionate about it. I am now going to cosmetology school to get more educated in that field. Its my career now!
Ok...Now I am tagging these amazing girls!

Champagne Fizz (matte finish)

Silken Taupe (High pearl finish)

Night Sky (shimmer finish)

They normall cost $2.99 but with an in-store coupon of $2.00 off it came out to $.99 each. WOW!!! and they are pigmented and work well. so I saved a total of $6.00. I think I am going back to go get some more. Let me know if you want any swatches or reviews. Click on pic to enlarge.

Cherry culture Haul

I am so excited about this haul because I was able to get alot of the NYX stuff I wanted from cherry culture, most of it was on sale so I save so much money. I got the Amuse baby pink L/G free with my order. check out for nyx products at great prices plus I got free shipping! who can pass that up? If you want to see swatches or want a review on a certain item just let me know. Click the pic to enlarge.

Stars Makeup Haven

I have been wanting these palettes for a long time now but CS was always out of stock. I found a website who has the exact same product for a couple of bucks less and less shipping too. Check out for more info. I am happy with my purchase and honestly with alot of bad customer service stories from cs I'm glad I choose an alternative. The colors are pigmented and beautiful. None of the items broke or cracked during transit which is a huge plus in my book.

Recent Cakes...

I have been really busy lately making cakes for birthdays this month. Here are two that I did, one of them is a hulk cake with the hulk's fist coming out of the top of the cake, it was really cool because one layer was purple and the other green. It was made with my homemade buttercream frosting which is sooooo good. The other one was for a girl who was having a birthday at my sister's work. It was cute too with the stars. Hope you like...
