Beauty After Hours

Who is going to the Sephora Beauty After Hours VIB Rouge Event?!?! I am!! And I’m so excited. I had a great time at the Beauty Before Brunch event in the spring, and I’m definitely looking forward to this event. The cosmetic bag filled with samples looks amazing! I’m loving that they are (once again) being offered for VIB Rouge‘s guests as well, regardless of their membership/loyalty level. And obviously I’m also loving that they are free with ANY purchase. On a budget or saving for all of the holiday collections? No problem. Because that’s my problem … too much want, not enough cash. I’m curious what the “Learn & Play” workshops will be! Maybe some trend looks like “Strobing”?

The event takes place on Wednesday August 5th at 7pm. A much better time in my opinion. That 9am start was brutal!! And of course … 4x the points for Beauty Insider Appreciation Week! Hopefully there are some awesome rewards to redeem for!! ♡

Flare Beauty Box

My Flare Beauty Box has arrived!! I chose the “Fearless” box, because I’m a fearless bitch. For only $9 CAD and FREE shipping, this box was a steal. I debated purchasing both boxes but decided I really didn’t need two boxes in addition to all of the other makeup related items that I get through subscription boxes.

image

The Flare Beauty Box was offered through Topbox and in addition to all the beauty related goodies, also included a 60 day trial for Next Issue. I’m trying to save my 60 days for July and August. Perfect reading material for all of my tanning adventures.

Included in the FLARE Fearless Beauty Box:
• Covergirl Colorlicious Lipstick in Succulent Cherry (full size)
• Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash (travel size)
• Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Mascara by LashBlast in Very Black (full size)
• Herbal Essences Rejuvenating Shampoo & Conditioner (travel size)
• Olay Fresh Effects Clear Skin Swirled Mattifier Sachets (2)
• Vidal Sassoon Hair Colour Coupon (max $16.99)

image

I’m amped for the full size Covergirl Lash Bloom Mascara as well as the full size Covergirl Colorlicious Lipstick. The mascara retails for $10.99 CAD, alone it pays for the price of the box. The lipstick is a beautiful bright red, it is a little more sheer than I expected but will still make for a gorgeous day lip. I won’t use the hair dye but will definitely pass the coupon along. The Herbal Essences as well as the Olay, have already found a special place in my gym bag.

If you want one of these Flare Beauty Boxes, it isn’t too late. Visit the Topbox Shop to order!! Did anyone order both?!?!?

Goodbye 2014

And just like that, another year has come and gone. We say goodbye to 2014 and look forward with optimism at the year to come. With my birthday right before NYE (December 30th) the new year brings the opportunity of a fresh start in many ways. New year. New age. New dreams.

Here is a look back at the start of blogging for me. It’s only been 3 months, but I am already hooked! WordPress does a wonderful little annual report full of fun facts. Here were my most viewed posts of 2014. Seems you all are just as addicted to Sephora as I am ♡

Here were the people who commented the most over these last few months:

Thank you, each and every one of you, for your support and for reading my posts! Jan&Jot, newkeybeauty, Amber T. (Sorry doll I have no link for you!), RollinginGlitter, and theworldofcos, thank you for being my biggest commenters!

Just for fun, I made a list of some of the most hilarious search terms I have seen so far. I love that WordPress shows you exactly how people find your blog (search terms used, referral clicks, etc.). What I love even more is all of these wonderful search terms, with what I would assume were very disappointed readers. What a tease. Click for boobs instead find makeup and beauty.

Aren’t some of these hilarious? I think my favorite is “lovely winter image with boob“. Because it isn’t a lovely image without tits, right? LOL!!

Birthday Wish

And by “wish“, I obviously meant wishlist! My birthday is December 30th. It might only be 5 days after Christmas, but that doesn’t make it any less of a birthday. Bring on the cake, candles, and champagne, because the holidays are all about being together, and this day is no exception! Lucky for him (aka the boyfriend) anything from my Christmas List is fair game, but in case Santa tickled my fancy, supports gluttony, brought me want I wanted for being such a naughty good girl, here are a few other ideas to celebrate my 27th:

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween all my lovelies! I just love Halloween. From spooky manicures, to scary movies, and sexy costumes. I love it all!! Last year we threw a HUGE Halloween bash, but this year we decided to keep it low key with some pumpkin carving, pumpkin seed roasting, horror movies, and maybe even visiting a Haunted House! Here a few of my must haves for tonight:

1) Halloween Claws (that I did myself …)

2) A killer pumpkin seed receipe (Click Here)

4) A yummy cocktail (or two)

5) A classic for background noise

What are your must haves for tonight? Are you going sexy, scary, or silly? Are you staying in or having an all out rager?! Either way have a spooktacular evening full of tricks AND treats ♡

Get Naked

Or rather, don’t get naked. As in the Urban Decay palettes, duh! Everybody LOVES the Naked line of palettes, whether it’s the original or the basics, the 2 or the 3. I love them too, but they are too hard on the wallet. If you are in the same boat, you will be so excited to hear about the sale at Sephora! Right now, they have their Limited Edition Pulp Fiction eyeshadow palette on for $19 CAD! It was originally priced at $41 CAD!

I did some research on this palette and the reviews are fantastic. A majority of people actually liked it better than the Naked line. True to UD form, these shadows are very pigmented, smooth, and hold tight! I was sooo pleased with my palette, especially the size of the shadows, they are very generous! The brush is tiny, but perfect for touch ups. Here are some photos:
