FOTD, a couple OOTDs, and my Junior Ring!

Hey guys!!! I was experimenting with some little jewels I had and I came up with a look that I call "Cyber Angel."

 This pic isn't really color accurate. Its the color you see in the other pics, I'm just trying to show off the sparkle! :)
OK sooooo I have this random palette from Sephora and I don't even know what it's called but I used several whites and a couple silvers for this look. The silver eyeliner is from Korres, the mascara is Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes, the blush is from this palette and the lippie is awesome because random pigments fell into a white-ish sparkly gloss from this palette and made this random color! EPICNESS Oh! and I'm wearing Laura Mercier Pressed Mineral Foundation in Natural Beige!

I love experimenting with clothes! It would be super awesome to be like a fashion designer! Here's a couple of recent OOTDs

 Lace shirt from JC Penny layered over random white cami, Belt from Icing, Skirt from Express, Shoes from Payless!
Random cami, Same belt!, Skirt from American Eagle, Jacket from Wet Seal, Shoes from Payless

Love clothes more than life...same as makeup...mhmm :D

I gots my Junior Ring you guysss!!!!! Here's a couple pics!

No, my birthstone is not pink, my birthstone is Peridot and my school color is Blue..."So why did you get pink?" I have been asked this 20 times, let me explain, Pink is the most epic, fashionista color ever, HECK YES I GOT PINK! :)

This is my school mascot and the year I shall graduate...dude if the world ended in 2012 I WILL BE TICKED OFF, I did not go to school my whole life for the world to end 5 months before I graduate my senior year, thank you Mayans (they think they're so smart with their little calendars...) 

And there is my name, or well half of it. Only like 1 person in the world calls me Tina but girls rings hold like 7 or 8 characters and Christina is 9 SO I have Tina on my ring AND its just a Christian symbol (Florence Christian School...I figured it was appropriate) And I don't do sports or any extracurricular activity...I mean I do choir but I'm not like oh yay, I love it so much I'm gonna put it on my ring! And they didn't have one of makeup or shoes sooooo yeah :)
I got the smallest size of this version because I wanted it to be a class ring but I wanted it to be cute and fashionable too! (Funny I just get weird stares when I say this...)

Soooo that concludes my post! Love ya'll! Remember Don't do drugs, Shop safely, and most of all Labor Day has passed so whether you understand it or not, it is still deemed unfashionable so please, no white shoes. ;)

Its been FOREVER!

OMG!!! I haven't posted in 29 days, 6 hours, 47 minutes, and somewhere between 0 and 60 seconds!

I miss blogging so much you guys! But Junior year has been pretty tough. I wake up at 6:30, school ends at 2:55, I don't get home until like 3:30 and from English III to College Pre-cal, I'm dead! I sleep until like 5:30, do my homework, eat, workout,  shower, and by that time its like 9:00 or 10:00 and I'm in bed! (I love sleep more than life) Then weekends I'm usually with friends, doing homework, napping, or being flat out lazy! School has been wiping me out!!!

I'm so thankful for this long weekend! Yay Labor Day!!! I'm not even sure what Labor Day is actually...I thought it was trees but that's Arbor Day...I think. And Memorial Day is for people who like died in War right? As is Veterans? *runs off to Google* So...its for people who work? IDK I'm confuzzled! And why is it unfashionable to wear white? Oh well, who least I finally have a chance to blog. I'm hoping I can try and fit in once a week posts, like Saturday posts!

I hope my lovely 4 subscribers will see this post! If any of ya'll do, or ANYONE for that matter, please comment and let me know, someones still checking up!

So, I'm getting my Junior Ring Wednesday! Eep! So like, our school color is Blue and my birthstone is Periot but I definately got Pink :) I is awesome. My TI84 calculator is pink(and sparkly)!

Oooh!!! How about a "How to stay cute and organized at school" post? That sounds fun! Hopefully, I'll be able to keep this promise! :)

Well, thats it! Really hope to be talking to ya'll soon!

Still working on those posts I told you about last post...haha anyway, So I thought I would tell you what I've gotten so far! I got the China Glaze crackle collection, the red crackle from Sally Hansen, OPI I Lilly Love You, the Tarte for True Blood palette, and the Urban Decay 15th Anniversary! More to buy and big haul post to follow :) I have a big list of posts I have to do!

Wow! Sorry I've been totally off on hiatus!

Wow, I really haven't posted in forever and I have a million excuses but it all comes down to: I'm lazy. Hahaha, I'm a failure. :'(...;) I still haven't posted a review on the Naked Palette like I said I would, I'm working on a clothing segment on How to Dress up a Casual Tank. But as for today how about an NOTD? Pssstt!!! NOTD means Nail of the Day!...your welcome! ;) So I saw this picture online and I completely fell in love with the nails, especially for summer!

So, I went through my many polishes and found colors close (except you can't really see the thumb in the picture but it looks orange-y so I found an orange I liked with the look!) and came up with this.

(I realize the pic isn't the best! I only have my phone and its all awkward cause I was trying to get my thumb in there! :)

Its (from thumb to pinkie) China Glaze Peachy Keen, China Glaze Sugar High, A random Blue from Justice, China Glaze Lemon Fizz, and Milani Techno Red. All the China Glazes are from the Up, Up, and Away collection and the Milani is from the Neon collection (the Justice one is just random). Essie Shorts Story would be a closer match for the pink as it is more purple toned but I didn't have it :( I like my manicure though! Also this little Justice Blue I have found as a close dupe for Zoya Robyn.

Anywho, that's it for this post! Lots of things to look forward to, I'm planning a Naked Palette review with several looks, a Dress up Tank Top segment, a homemade skin and hair care segment, and much more!!! Make sure to keep checking for updates, and I'm gonna try to not leave ya'll again for so long! Bye :D

Florida haul, Tea Party, and NOTD!!!

Hey guys!!!! WOW! I haven't posted in forever! I'm sorry! :P Disney was amazing, I am a baby and I definately cried meeting the princesses cause it remended me of when I was little haha...and again during the rides...and again during the fireworks...yeah ;)

Dude Harry Potter was AMAZING, it felt like I was like at Hogwarts and in Hogsmeade, it was epic. I drank Butterbeer, got a wand...EEP! I was like amazed. (I'm such a geek)

The rest of Universal was cool but not AS cool...there was this Jimmy Neutron nickolodeon ride that made my life though haha I'm such a loser! Oh and I don't ride roller coasters soooo yeah

Anyway, onto the haul, I went to 2 malls, the Florida Mall and the Mall at Milennia...EPICNESS. They were the best part (for a shopaholic like me at least) so first I went to the Mall at Milennia and I went to Forever 21 and the MAC pro store. At Forever 21 I got an orange-y, flowy top and a pair of brown strappy heels.

For some reason my camera failed here :P
 Close up of detail on the sleeve
 Mahhh shoes!
These shoes hurt like crap I mean OWW! But they are sooo freaking cute so I tolerate :)

Then at the MAC Pro store I made a 4 color palette thingy with Bio Green, Chrome Yellow, Aqua, and Electric Eel. Bio Green and I think Aqua are MAC Pro colors which means you can only get them at MAC Pro stores and I'm not  sure about the other two. I also got an eye pencil in Proccess Magenta and the Brush Cleaner.

All the products together
The eyeshadows the green is Bio Green, yellow is Chrome Yellow, blue is Electric Eel, and the aqua is well Aqua :)
The pencil, which is a million times brighter in real life and epic.

The next day I went to the Florida Mall and I went to Forever 21 again and got a multi-colored flowy top, a bow necklace, a bracelet, and two nail polishes.

This color is called Yellow and its not quite a yolk colored yellow but its not highlighter either. Its sparkly and has little clear-ish flakies.

This color is called Light Green and has a clear base packed with green sparkles and flakies that in some light looks red and some orange and sometimes the green sprakles reflect off the flakies making them look yellowish and greenish. Its absolutely gorgeous, I have it layered over black right now and I can't stop staring!

Then I went to Charlotte Russe and got 4 tank tops, one in hott pink, one in lime green, one in baby blue, and one in peach.

I also got these freaking adorable ear plugs that have bows at the ends!!!

Then I was walking to Sephora and was passing dELiA*s when I saw some bright red shorts in the window and I have wanted some since like forever so I bought them :)

The look a bit orange tinted here but they are really red like bright neon RED not tinted orange or pink or anthing just red and I love them :)

Lastly I went to Sephora and saw this cute little box from Urban Decay

Its this sparkly lickable body powder. They had it in Honey, Chocolate, and Marshmallow. I bought the marshmallow! Now I don't have a boyfriend to be licking up on my marshmallow tasting skin but nevertheless this stuff was sparkly, smelled amazing, and freaking tasted like marshmallow fluff, heck yeah I bought it. ;)
I also got these cute little flower decals for my nails!

I also ordered online a zebra rhinestone case for my iPod Touch andddd *drumroll* the Urban Decay Naked Palette!!! I have wanted this for so long! I am going to do a separate post for the Naked Palette because I'm going to do a review! Let me tell you though its epic :)

Thus concludes my haul, oh! wait! I sorta have one last part. I got two new kitties!!!
Ollie and Ellie! :) Aren't the cute??? *dies* I love them soo much!

And I want to show ya'll my outfit I wore to my little sister's tea party yesterday!

I feel like its very tea party-esque what with all the lace and stuff. I got this dress at Charlotte Russe a few months ago and I am in LOVE with it, I like mixing it with modern pieces when I wear it out, it makes a very interesting look! Very cute if I may say so myself. ;) This is my first time wearing it by itself, I'm not sure if I would out but for this special tea party I did, I mean Minnie Mouse was there for goodness sakes!!!
 These are some cute shoes I got from Payless a few weeks ago. I liked the way they looked with the dress..espaecially for a tea party :)
Toes are China Glaze Sun Worshipper if anyone wanted to know! :)

Picture just cause I liked the way my hair did
Anddd!!! Last but not least my current NOTD.
In the first picture you can see the green sparkles best and in the second you can really see the flakies! This is one coat of American Apparel Hassid (which is just a black creme) with Love & Beauty Light Green on top. It was one coat of the Light Green but it wasn't a real thin coat, I mean it wasn't gloppy but it was a thick-ish coat. If you were to do a really thin coat you might want to do 2 if you want it to look like this but you may like the look of  a thin one :)

So that's all for this post! Talk to you guys soon! Tune in for the Naked Palette review :)

What I'm wanting, Disney, and 3 Followers!

EEEEPPP!!!!!!!!!!! I have 3 followers! Hahaha :) I was scared everyone would be like pshh who is this girl attempting to do a blog, but 3 people have decided I'm tolerable. :D (<-- Imagine this face 20 times happier, this is me right now)  :)

Ok so more awesome news, I am currently at The Portofino Bay at Universal Studios! Major happy face. So I don't know what ya'll are doing this week but I will be at Harry Potter getting a wand from Ollivander's, drinking Butterbear, and going to Hogwarts. Be jealous. ;) I am also doing the other fun stuff at Universal and Disney!!! And don't forget the Mall at Milennia that has a MAC Pro Store. I'm hoping to get some awesome shopping done so I can do my first haul post! Just wanted to say that and that if I don't post for a couple days, its because I'm busy having fun.

Anywho, you know what I'm really really wanting? A pair of bright yellow heels. Not mustard colored, lemon colors, nice and high, pumps not wedges. Charlotte Russe had these perfect shoes:

 BUT alas, they are not in my size. :'( I will find something similar though, it is my mission. In the meantime, I will buy the pretty blue ones. :)
 Oh and I bought these on an impulse. Complete guilty pleasure shoes. ;) They iz rainbow and sparkly!!! :DDD Love :)
Patent Uber Covered Platform PumpOk well I guess thats it! I will try to post again soon, talk to you guys later!!!

Review of Tarte Glow Your Way to Gorgeous 8 Piece Maracuja & Clay Collection

Ok so for my first makeup related post <insert super excited face here> I am going to do a review of the Tarte Glow Your Way to Gorgeous 8 Piece Maracuja & Clay Collection. (I was going to just be like Tarte Collection, but for you lovely people who love to skip the title--me ;)--I wrote it all again...your welcome) haha :) So anyway this was the Today's Special Value on QVC and for the life of me I cannot remember the price! It was 2? easy payments of 20 something?...well anyway, the 2 brushes it comes with, the prices of those combined was more than the whole 8 piece set whose actual retail value was like $195, so YAY! good deal! (Does that sentence sound like its worded funny?) Anyway you get:
  • Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer (Worldwide Launch)
  • Tarte SmolderEYES waterproof eyeliner Fig (plum-y brown)
  • Tarte Lip Luster in Sweet (light, soft pink with gold shimmer)
  • Tarte Waterproof Cream Shadow Pot in Shimmering Taupe (basically a shimmering taupe)
  • Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara in Black
  • Tarte 12 Hour Wear Clay Blush in Peaceful (peachy rose)
  • Tarte Deluxe Mineral Powder Bronzer in Park Ave Princess
  • Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil Deluxe Sample
  • Tarte Shadow Brush
  • Tarte Blush Brush
  • Tarte Sharpener
  • Tarte Makeup Bag
I know your probably thinking, well this is 12 things, and technically, it is but I don't think its counting the 2 Brushes, the Sharpener, or the Tarte Makeup Bag it all comes in, as those aren't actually "products". But onto the review.

This is a retail picture of the whole set (because I forgot to take one)

Here is the mascara

 For some reason the swatch photo ended wayyy up here...failure...anyway these are (in order): The lipluster, Smoldereyes, Blush, Bronzer, and the Shadow
 Maracuja Oil

<insert missing picture of bag here> :) failure!

Here is a look a made using almost nothing but these products. The only other product I used was my Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder in Natural Beige. The only product I didn't use in the Tarte set was the Maracuja Oil.


 Close ups of eyemakeup using the Shadow and the SmolderEyes, and Mascara

 The whole face

(Wow, I look really unfashionable here...failure. Oh well, I did this at like 10 PM, I was ready for bed :)

I give the whole set a thumbs up. I like every color a lot, and I found them all to work well. Every product works well together as a set and separately. I would highly reccommend any one of these products. The only product I haven't tried is the Maracuja Oil but my mom uses it and she told me to tell you guys she likes and would reccommend it! I really like Tarte's products because I find that they work well and they also don't have any bad products like parabens. (Even though I still use products with that stuff in it, it feels nice to put something on your face you know isn't going to hurt you :) Actually HUGE rave for this mascara, I've actually been using it since it first came out and it is my only mascara, I love it to pieces. Its AMAZING! I reccommend the mascara the most but the whole collection is awesome!

So, thus concludes my first Review. I'm not sure how I did, please comment and let me know! :) Also, is my lighting ok? I can't tell. And I was thinking of starting a Youtube channel so I can do tutorials for stuff like this! :) Let me know what you think! Thanks so much for looking!
