The Nail Challenge Collaborative Look 3

Happy Sunday people, how was your day of giving thanks? My belly is very thankful for all the food I have consumed since Thursday. The Mr and I threw down in the kitchen, y'all just don't know how we got down lol.

Anyway, back to my monthly obligations (in reference to my blog that is) I have look #3 here to share with you all and it's based on another favorite book in my collection. This book is very famous and has been a movie and a play (I've seen both). This book is a reality to many people who grew up in this era and it touches on a lot of real life issues! 

By Alice Walker, I chose her book The Color Purple".

Cherry Dust Vandalism

Good morning! Are you excited for the fast approaching Thanksgiving. I'm already giving thanks for the fact I don't get full fast lol! This years, the Mr and I wi be side by side in the kitchen putting on for the day!

I wanted to show you all two manis that's I've worn and have forgotten to post till now! 

This is a new brand to me called Kiara Sky. I previously saw this brand on Cynthia (Oflifeandlacquer) blog a few months back. I saw this display as I was leaving the nail supply store and grabbed a few of their glitter polishes

This is Cherry Dust over OPI's Pandemonium.

And this one is Vandalism (over a Seche Polish whose name I can't remember right now).

They're only $3 so I'll be trying out their Creme polishes next. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving you all, eat irresponsibly lol.

NYX Nude Comparison

Hi people!! It's FRIDAY BISHES!!

Ok so what I've got for you all is a comparison post of 3 nude lippies from NYX cosmetics! When you're not feeling for the bold lips that day and you want something nude these are the ones for you! These lippies look either sheer or nude on me being that my lips are brown/pink. 

If you're lighter skinned than me and have any of these, I'd like to see the look on you :).

NYX Sugar Pie, Skin Tone & Tiramisu

The Nail Challenge Collaborative Look 2

Hola!! Why do I feel like November has wings and is just flying by like nobody's bidniz!! We are almost to the day of Thanksgiving and before you know it we will be celebrating Jesus's birthday (then mine shortly after :)!!

I am totally not loving the theme for this month (all because it's harder and I can draw lol). However, I did my best and I am going to make it to the finish line! The book I chose for this look is by Rick Warren and it's a very inspirational book called The Purpose Driven Life.

This book will bring you into all kind of intellectual aspects of your life, it is very thought-provoking and I would recommend that you all take a read of it if you haven't.

The Makeup Show Orlando Recap *pic heavy*

OMG!! Well everyone I am finally back home from my adventurous weekend! As I told you all earlier this week I was attending The Makeup Show Orlando which was held on November 15 and 16th. On Friday I attended along with the Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida girls and a bunch of other bloggers! 

The famous MUA "JVincent" was the speaker for the blogger preview night and he is such a fascinating man! He gave us a summary of what to expect to see as far as products and who to expect to see as in brands and famous make up artists!!

We all received a tote full of goodies from various brands. I will not go through in this post what I have received, but I will tell you that I have uploaded a YouTube video showing you all what I received.

However, in this post I will be showing you some of the pictures that I took while at the event, check it out!!

This book I chose is one of my favorites and I tell everyone it's a MUST READ!! Just recently I had the Mr. Read it and he gave up tv once he began reading it!!

These 3 are creme formula.

The Beauty Buffs: Color Block

Hey everyone, how goes it for your week? The real question is, did you all go out and vote? I hope you made yours count. You know what today is right, yep you guessed it THE BEAUTY BUFFS day.

Today us beauties, we celebrate Color Blocking of all walks of fashion and design!! I chose something subtle and classy (in color and design). My base color is "Yo Soy" by Wet N Wild Wild Shine polish. Notice the new bottle shape, I found these new polish at my Dollar General and I counted about 10 new shades. The formula is average but I've swatched some which seem to be a little of the thick side. My color block gold polish is also by WNW and it's called "Ready to propose", its formula was average as well. 

Check out the other beauty buffs, color blocking with style.....
