thursday product review: maybelline fit me foundation

i used to use $50- a- bottle lancome foundation, which i really did like, and it lasted at least 6 months, so i felt like it was a good investment. however, a friend of mine urged me to try the maybelline fit makeup line. i guess it is supposed to really match your skin tone.

i tried #110, which is the second lightest i think. i do like it, but im not a true convert yet. it is pretty cheap, but i am not sure they have a color that is really correct for me.

i have been using it for awhile, so it's not BAD, but sometimes i feel as though it is a little too white. it has SPF 18, which i like, but sometimes i feel as though my face is a little greasy? i think i might like more of a matte look. so i think i am still on the lookout for a better product- any ideas??

weekday gourmet dinner

after a quick drink down our hill for happy hour at bottle cap (where i may or may not have gotten tipsy after half a drink), we decided to make a feast! A quick salad, trader joe's roasted potatoes, and a lamb chop completed our gourmet tuesday night dinner! this was literally thrown together in 20 minutes and was really good!

forever 21 friday

its no secret that i love forever.
i mean, its just so great for trendy pieces that you dont want to spend a lot of money on.
and honestly, some of the stuff i buy lasts a long time!
i feel like its really dumb to buy costume-y jewelry anywhere else since if it's fake, its fake, and i might as well spend $3.80 at forever compared to $50 somewhere else.
recently i scored a great pair of earings and really cute bangle at forever (neither are on the site, but still should be there).
happy shopping and happy weekend!

thursday product review: maybelline master shape eyebrow pencil

this is my first post from my phone!

the blogger app is so cool.

so i was killing time at wallgreens the other day and saw they had a lot of make-up that was buy one, get one 1/2 off. i have had eye brow pencils before, but never really used them, and i got the itch to buy one. (i think only because i saw one that looked like it was EXACTLY the color of my hair. so, i bought it (and something else to be revealed at a later date), and i really like it! it is great! does it make that much of a difference? not sure, but i really feel "all put together" when i use it. i will take some pictures next time i am not blogging from bed.

the blog is back!

after a brief hiatus, i am back!

i moved, got a new job, new living situation, new city, new new new.
i am happier than ever and just really needed a break for a little due to all the new-ness.
as a result of my various new situations i have definitely been a little more crafty!

i have had to consolodate my stuff (apparently that happens when you live with a guy), so had to figure out how to keep my makeup together without it taking over the apt.
a few months ago, i saw a great idea for keeping makeup brushes together, and easily accessible.

i just took coffee beans (you could use beads too), filled a small cup, and placed my brushes in. they stand up, are easily found, and the brush handles smell like coffee! mmm
