So here we are, beginning another month for 2018 already; chapter 2 of 12! I hope January was good to you. I can’t say that it was to me but that’s something I will divulge maybe later when my spirits are up to it.
I got a chance to play in makeup today, something I plan to do more often to tackle all these latest trends I’ve been spying on IG makeup pages. I actually made time to take pics of my handiwork lol.
So February is the month for the lover in you for Valentine’s Day so I wanted to create a look this year. I’ll probably be doing a few V-Day looks, I kinda dig this traditional sweetheart day!!
Check me out
Makeup look deets:
Foundation: Too Faced BTW “Chestnut”
Eyeshadow: Juvia’s Place “Zulu” pallet
Lips: Wet n Wild “Too Tulip to Quit”
Highlighter: “Maybelline Master Chrome
Head scarf: Dollar Tree
Background poster board: $1 Dollar Tree
P.S. Wanna see more makeup looks on my blog, like this blog post!!
If you’re from the Chi there’s only a small number of excuses I’ll accept explaining why you don’t know about Sweetest Day!!
To be fair, if my man wasn’t from Chicago I probably wouldn’t have known either lol. So yeah he schooled me about the whole “Valentine’s Day for men” ordeal. Since he moved thousands of miles here to Florida for the sake of our relationship I do try to oblige his “special occasion”. Now that I think of it, then I don’t need to get him a Valentine’s Day gift right?!
Here’s my Sweetest Day look, I used Juvia’s place “The Magic” & “Sahara” palette for this look.
I couldn’t decide on whether to wear a nude lip or a gold lip, but I ended up wearing a nude lip.
Shirt is from Macy’s.
Did ya miss me (Varnell Hill from Martin voice)!!
Wishes can come true, isn’t that what we’ve been told? Isn’t that what we tell our child/dren when they’re blowing out those birthday candles lol.
Check out a few items that are currently on my wish list…..
Betsey Johnson Debossed Lip suitcase (someone on IG spotted it in their TJMAXX–I haven’t been so lucky yet).
A friend Pascha posted this book on IG, I’m up for the challenge. I got a good heart but this mouf girrrrrrrrrl!
I want to use up the charcoal soaps I have so much of before I buy this product. Heard a lot of good things about it!!
Nike Air Max 97 “Gold”, wish me luck cause they drop May 18th.
By the way I did get the silver ones that came out in April
Lastly, Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 Bandouliere
What’s on your wish list?
Thanks for reading!
Hey y’all, welcome back to Wish List Wednesday where all your wishes are welcome, I hope they come true one day.
But back to reality, here’s what’s on my wish list this week….
A trip to Abu Dhabi, it looks so beautiful.
A 7 series BMW in black, it has always been my favorite car. I have a 2015 Altima and the body style resembles this style that’s why I like it so much. Some of the features in my car are the same features that BMW have.
Christian Louboutin new nail polish collection, I love how it’s so colorful.
Nike Air Max 1 X Atmos collab. These are actually an attainable item. This sneaker released yearsssss ago and I missed it then! I’m kinda determined not to miss the release this month but I won’t be too bummed if I don’t get them.
A blank check from someone rich…. with this blank check I’ll do the right thing…..whatever that is lol…
What’s on your wish list?
I know I haven’t posted a lot this month (let’s blame it on itbeing a short month mmm k) but if it’s any consolation I haven’t been holding out on much. I haven’t bought much (in my strong opinion).
Here’s what I did pick up…..
Some products from Makeup Revolution which is sold at Ulta, for very reasonable prices.
Products from the new Wet n Wild LE Queen of my Heart collection. You can find these now in Walgreens and CVS. The faux mink lashes by Ardell I picked up in Ulta.
These patches I plan to put on a shirt, purchased from H&M.
Got me some “tools” from Real Techniques. I really love this brush for applying foundation, this will be my second buy of this style. I heard how soft this beauty blender is so no doubt I’m a check it out!!
Lastly I bit the budget and bought something I’ve been wanting for a spell!! Yes you’ve guessed it, the Louis Vuitton Speedy 35 Damier Ebene. I’m so happy I made this purchase, I got this bag preloved but in mint condition.
P.S. The handbag charms are new as well. The Kylie bag charm was from her winter collection. The lip charm I got from Walmart for $2.88 (FTW right!!!!).
Sooooooo that’s it for me…… for now lol. What’s NEW with you all???
Y’all I haven’t bought much from the VS Pink clothing wise in a long time. I came across a few old tops I’ve had for years in a winter clothes storage bin so this annual sale came right on time. Pink happens to be my favorite color so I don’t mind walking around with it splattered on my shirt!!
Check out the shirts they got me for…. I actually only went in for one shirt that has the leopard pattern inside the PINK lettering. I got and a few more, hey it was my birthday!!
$7 phone case
Truth be told, these shirts run big, I normally wear L or XL in women’s tops but I can wear a medium or large in PINK shirts.
Did you catch this sale? If so, what did you get?
