Lay Flat For Your Close Up

You know we can get so creative trying to capture that perfect shot right! I forget who it was, but I even saw someone on IG using their cat as a background fixture to do a makeup flat lay pic lol. 

I won’t go that route but I will use these use images from this multi image paper pads I purchased from Michael’s & Hobby Lobby. I was introduced to this by a YouTuber Bianca Andress, she will have you in these stores looking cray cray for the cute items she finds. Needless to say she had me in up them stores. She found hers in Micheal’s but I found some really cute paper pad themes in Hobby Lobby also, I caught them on a 50% off sale (which is still he current sale–I was in there today šŸ˜‚šŸ¤£).

Micheal’s $14.99

All the rest are from Hobby Lobby $19.99 (50% off)


I tell you I’m a sucker for anything with the patterns of lips, hearts, hearts w/ stripes, lipsticks or leopard print. I think I’ll be using these paper pads for a while, there’s a glitter themed pad I want to go back to get. There’s just too many pages for me to show you every image you’ll get, so that means I’m sending you into them stores to check these out in person. I can’t seem to pick which store has the better themes. If you go, let me know!!

Here’s a page I used the other day for a polish flat lay pic.

What are some of your favorite patterns? What do you use for your flat lay pics?

Thanks for reading šŸ’‹

Target Dollar Spot Haul

You know, people will argue that anything sold at a cheap value can’t be good or it won’t last long. In this case I disagree…. Target “dollar spot” has been one of my favorite aisles in there. Of course it’s right in the front as you walk in, so you have no choice but to give that area your money first lol.

A friend of mine (@beedeepresents) posted her haul recently whiched featured this clipboard, I fell in love with it instantly!! I am a huge fan of pink (duh) but also anything with pink shades of roses!! So you know me, I pulled up on Target with my debit card locked and loaded.

The dollar spot has an array of cutesy items but I especially love their seasonal & holiday products like: Valentine’s Day, Easter, Summer, Halloween & etc.

Anyhoo here’s my haul.

Clipboard $5

Cute notecard $1
Pens $1 each

Notebook $3

The dollar spot is the place for great inexpensive finds. If it’s your need to decorate a certain room, decorations for holidays or just for finding little trinkets for the low, make this spot your target!!

What are your latest Target dollar spot finds?

Milani Amore Mattalics Lip Creme swatchesĀ 

Hey my beauties…..

While there hasn’t been mention of these new lippies on the Milani site and/or social sites, these have been spotted at CVS & Walgreens. 

These are the LE Milani Amore Metallics lip creme. 

At first I wasn’t feeling this collection, metallic and matte? Eeh I said about a lot of the colors. So after further investigation the lie detector determined that I needed these 3 lol. They smell just like the Amore Matte lip creme, the last about 51/2 to 6 hours, little transfer, doesn’t stain. These retail for $7.99.

This also happens to be my weekend haul. The make up bag is $5. 

Top to bottom: Mattely In Love, Raving Matte, Matterialistic. Milani 



What beauty products did you buy this weekend?

Makeup Revolution Matte Lipsticks

Hi beauties how was your weekend? For me, one word sums it up best–FAST!! I can’t tell you how many times I looked at the clock in disbelief that it was that hour already. 

Have you heard of Makeup Revolution London the cosmetics brand? I’ve been following them on IG and recently discovered they’re now available in our very own Ulta Beauty Store. I took my happy butt there on Sunday and here are the items I snapped for you all. The prices are amazingly affordable…. But (and there’s a big one) I’ve done a video review on them yesterday. Please go over to my YouTube channel and check out my review BEFORE you buy any of their matte lipsticks…. 

   

    
   
   
    
 

#GettinLacquer’d Up 8.9-8.12.12

Image

*Home Alone facial expression*, that’s how I looked when I poured the bag of polishes on to my bed after I got home from Chicago on Monday. I didn’t buy up everything and I got some good deals on these polishes. I know what you’re thinking and you better not say it! The majority of these polishes I got using my Ulta rewards coupon or BOGO 1/2 off deals. The OPI neon pack I got half off on sale at the beauty supply store (even my boo was like WOW that’s a steal). I picked up the brands Pop Glam, Essence, Gosh, Spoiled, OPI, Girls Rock, AERO, Essie, Avon, Sparitual, Nails Inc. London and Zoya. I love deals, who doesn’t!
