Manic Panic Virgin Snow Toner Review

At first I didn't think this product helped lighten my hair but it actually did after review the footage I took from dying my hair. It was very brassy/orange and after applying it for a half hour helped lighten my hair and turned it more yellow. I also like this product because it helps make my hair softer but this is all Manic Panic products so thumbs up for that. I only bleached my hair once during this process, so just making it a little lighter helped when adding the other colors. For darker colored dyes, I would not bleach your hair to get it as light as possible because you are only damaging it and the darker colors should get rid of any blonde.

Clinique Nail Polish Review

At first I thought this was a good nail polish because it dried fast and it was very pigmented as I only needed to apply one coat, but this sucker chips so easily! But the website says you should:
Yeeah, only applied the color since I found it randomly in my collection of make-up. This is pretty pricey but for it's benefits of being appropriate for sensitive eyes and skin, then this is the product for you.

MAC VIRUS/SPYWARE/ADWARE BEWARE

Holy moly I just encountered my first virus/spyware/adware issue with my Mac computer from the 6 years that I've owned it.
DO NOT CALL THIS NUMBER! Nor go through the steps that they are giving. Each time I refreshed this page, a different number came up.

If you encounter this, reset your Safari if your computer has it. If you need more specific help, call Apple support or go to Genius Bar. I wish I had recorded it on my end to list out the specific steps, but yeah. I literally dodged a bullet.

Cinderella Collection MAC Cosmetics | Royal Ball Review

At first I was really hesitant about keeping this lipstick, but I definitely think my arsenal of lipsticks needed this shade. First off it's a lustre, which means it's more shiney and less matte. That was a huge red flag for me because I generally like matte lipsticks because that means it will last longer and the color will be more vibrant. Secondly, because it lacks pigmentation, chapped lips are a no-no when wearing this lipstick. Make sure your lips are moisturized and/or exfoliated before applying because then you'll see it built up unevenly. Because I don't have a lot of neutral colors, I figured this would be a good color to keep.

The Black&White Lookbook (Spring 2015)

I've been envisioning this video for quite some time now and I finally got a chance to film it. I wasn't able to do all the editing I had imagined but it came out pretty well. I started using Final Cut Pro which is a totally different world compared to iMovie and a huge learning curve. Overall, I'm happy with the way it came out and hope you like the looks. Let me know in the comments which is your favorite!



The make up was super simple as I literally used the black and white eyeshadows on the Alice in Wonderland Palette and then used the 24/7 Pencil Eyeliner in Zero. I was able to get one product of the Cinderella line from MAC, so of course you know I got a lipstick.

Look 1:
Kimono - Styles for Less
Dress - Styles for Less
Heels - UNIF
Pearls - Quibids

Look 2:
Leather Jacket - Zara
Crop Top - Forever 21
Shorts - Forever 21
Sneakers - Converse

Look 3:
Crop Top - Styles for Less
Skirt - H&M
Heels - UNIF

Look 4:
Top - Styles for Less
Shorts - H&M
Boots - Guess

Look 5:
Sweater - Target
Dress - Urban Outfitters
Heels - Soda (Tilly's)

Most of this stuff is pretty dated and if anything the newest items were the over the knee boots, black dress and kimono which was last fall/winter season. The good thing about these looks is that they are minimal and can be dressed up in any way you like and for any season.
