January Favorites 2014!

One of my New Years resolutions was to start doing monthly favorites. I love reading these posts to see what everyone else is loving at the moment. I'm going to do beauty, random, and, music favorites. Hope you enjoy and lets get into it! 


Healthy Accents Moisturizing Cream - love this stuff! My skin has been so dry with all the cold weather. It moisturizes my skin without feeling greasy. 
L'Oreal True Match Foundation- as mentioned, my skin has been very dry. This foundation doesn't accentuate my dry patches like most. Plus it matches my skin,which by itself is a hard task! 
Revlon 3 Barrel Hair Waver- I hate how straight and limp my hair is but I don't like curly hair on me either so this is the perfect happy medium. I love how my hair looks when using this! 
Funky Fingers Polish in Volts- Not pictured but it's just a deep, bright blue color that I've been wearing a lot this month! 
Earth Therapeutics Blending Sponge- I love this sponge! I think it's a dead on dupe for the beauty blender. It's not stiff like other similar sponges and blends my makeup flawlessly! 

Cosmogirl Headwraps- I picked these up at my local discount store and just thought they were so fun and they don't leave marks or creases in your hair. 
Inspirations Sweet Tea- I'm really picky about my sweet tea but I have fallen in love with this stuff! I could drink it by the gallon! 
Leclerc Celebration Cookies- I absolutely love these cookies. They're a buttery cookie with a chocolate bar on top. They taste like s'mores! Yum! 

Neon Lights- Demi Lovato
Listen here!
Waiting For Superman- Daughtry 
Listen here!

So that's what I've been loving this month! I would love to see what you've been loving this month so leave your links down below!

Review | Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick

Let me start off by saying I'm not a huge fan of Wet n Wild. They have some good products but they also have their fair share of duds. I saw these lipsticks and decided to give them a chance. They were $1.99 and I picked up 2 colors in 'Dollhouse Pink' and 'Don't Blink Pink.'

Dollhouse Pink:
A semi-matte Barbie pink. 
Don't Blink Pink: 
A matte, bright berry-pink. 

I'm actually really impressed by these. The pigmentation is amazing and they glide on nicely. They are slightly drying but with a balm underneath, they are perfect. They last 3-4 hours even through drinking. My only real complaint is the packaging. To be honest, it sucks. It's cheap and flimsy and the lipsticks wiggle and come loose. 

I'm really glad I tried these and I already have my eye on a few more!

Top 13 Nail Polishes of 2013!

I know I'm super late but I had to share my favorite polishes from last year. I never used to paint my nails, but in the past year I've become obsessed. I paint my nails at least 2 or 3 times a week. These aren't in order as i could barely limit myself to 13. With that said, lets get into the list!

1. China Glaze in Electrify
-a red and gold glitter packed polish. Needs 3 coats but looks absolutely stunning.

2.Sinful Colors in Shock and Awe
-a deep yet bright indigo shade.

3. Essie in The Lace Is On
-one of my only Essie polishes; a purple-pink duochrome color.

4. Zoya Pixiedust in Carter
-my definition of the perfect purple polish. Plus its textured!

5.Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mint Sorbet
-a pastel mint shade. I love the Xtreme Wear line!

6. Finger Paints in Laugh My Art Off
-another textured polish; a sparkly turquoise!

7. Sinful Colors in Pinky Glitter
 -the name says it all! A glitter filled, pink jelly polish.

8. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Celeb City
-a metallic silver with little specks of shimmer. 

9. Candie's in Electric Iris
-a dark lavender creme shade.

10. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Pacific Blue
-a bright, cobalt blue.

11. Pure Ice in Superstar
-a basic white polish. I've found that some whites can be difficult to work, but I really like this one.

12. L.A Colors in Summertime
-a bubblegum pink. It's fairly sheer but is mostly opaque in 3 coats.

13. L'Oreal Color Riche in Orange You Jealous?
-speaking of summertime, this coral color is perfect for summer!

I'm sorry this went up so late, but hey at least its not February. That counts for something, right?

Review | Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Polish

I love Sally Hansen polishes. Especially the Xtreme Wear line! So when I heard about their newest line, Triple Shine, I knew I had to check it out. The selection at my store was very picked over and I ended up only getting one color in Wavy Blue.

The triple shine cap comes off and you have a regular nail polish top which I find kind of annoying. The formula of the polish is really thick and kinda goopy which makes application very streaky and patchy. It took 3 coats to get opaque which is surprising because it is a darker color. My biggest complaint about this polish is the brush. It's awful in my opinion. It's very wide for my nails and makes application harder than it already is. 
This polish is really disappointing. I think I'll stick to the Hard As Nails and Xtreme Wear lines. 

Have you tried these? What do you think? 

#2014BloggerChallenge | New Years Inspiration!

Happy Late New Year!!! The topic of the challenge this week was New Years Inspiration whether that be a picture, quote, etc. I went for a quite just because I find then to be so meaningful and inspirational.

This quote is perfect to me because I feel like every year we don't just change on the outside. Yes we have goals of losing weight and being fit but we change the inside as well. I know one of my goals is to be nice to everyone despite past problems and to also have less doubts in myself and that really does involve working on whats on the inside. 
Whats your favorite inspirational quote? :)
