Beauty Bits & Bobs
I’m not normally tempted by any of Cargo’s cosmetics. I do have a few odd pieces and I like it well enough but it’s not my brand of choice. I must admit that this year I did indulge in purchasing a huge lot of the cute Christmas cards they do (These say “Santa Gloss Is Coming to Town”! How freaking cute is that???!!!)!
I mean come on! What cosmetic whore do you know that can resist Christmas cards that have a dot of gloss on ‘em (that’s completely usable by the very way)! Chances are if you’re a mate of mine you got one of these last year and chances are my little ass might just be super corny and go right ahead and send these again this year teehee!
I am tempted by this:
The full size SmokyEye Brush has been on my wish list for a while so how cool is it that it’s bundled with this kit!? Pretty darn awesome in my opinion! I don’t believe this is a full size brush but probably a mini version but I’m still tempted by this kit’s price! Quite a bargain to be had here!
Let’s see…off the topic of my head….It’s about $28 bucks for the cargo smokyeye duo and another $32 for brush so that’s $60 bucks for just two items and this kit has them PLUS a mascara and a cute little tin for $39 bucks! What a steal!
Now not only has the brush been on my items to pick up but I’ve also wanted to try the Smokyeye duo for a while and here in lays the perfect excuse to try both plus get some nice little extras with the purchase!
Overall I’d say this is a great little kit! Nice work Cargo it’s on my wish list!
Too Faced has decided to grace our presence with a cute little Kabuki Brush!
Do you love it?
It’s pink which in my lowly opinion is reason enough to want it! However! Nordstrom decided that they wanted to be special so they introduced one that’s exclusive to their Too Faced counters. So now we have a choice we can have cute and pink OR we can have the deluxe version which is cute with flowers! Oh my!
Both are the same price so as far as I’m concerned cute with flowers is the way to go! For my animal lovers this is a cruelty free brush and animal hair free So if cute, flowers, and pink weren’t enough for you than the fact it’s good to animals has to make you want it!
This one is on my Wish List girls!
Love it? Hate it? Want it?
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again! I’m NOT a sun seeker! This weekend the worst possible scenario occurred! My god it was absolutely a nightmare! Horrifying! Terrifying! Drama! Suspense! Action! Sorry about that I got a little carried away.
What was I saying? Oh I remember now…the worst possible scenario occurred, I got caught without my trusty sunblock! Woe is me dear readers, woe is me! I’m naturally fair skinned on my face and a majority of my other body parts are a medium sort of color! I imagine that sounds utterly bonkers but it’s true and it actually works quite well as I like my face nice and fair of color. While away this weekend I was unable to locate a single store that didn’t carry some sort of dime store brand of sunblock and I was stuck without a little droplet of it! Zip, zero, nada! I normally slather my face in sunblock to avoid getting any sort of tan because I really feel a tan adds about 150lbs to my face! Sadly, the unavoidable occurred, and I ended up with quite a ghastly tan all over a majority of my face, body, and other bits and pieces!
I need a hug.
Until this fades I’ll be unable to get away with many bold colors I’m somewhat forced to use golds, bronzes, and other colors I am not always up for (golds I don’t mind so much).
And here is what could happen to you should you forget your sunblock (you’re lucky I’m even sharing these! They are just downright BAD)! This be the baked version of the Muse:
This morning general makeup application was an absolute nightmare as you can see from the pictures I look like I just rolled outta the bed or something the cat may have dragged in and spit out! I did wear a dress and tried really hard to make the tan work by dressing it up with a bit of orange….bad idea…made me look washed up completely!
Remember girls always pack several bottles of sunblock to avoid an awful tan that’ll make you look ten times heavier than you really are (I don’t believe that urban myth that tans flatter the firgure and make you look slim, lean, and lovely)! Unless of course you’re one of the rare few that can get away with being gorgeous AND tan! Lucky you!
By the way that look on my face is one of excruciating pain and agony in the form of some sort of smile as I was quite ready to throw myself on the floor, cry, stamp, and general shout my outrage at the unjustness of my unwanted bronzed flesh!
I’m going to attempt using my Sony Mini DV to start doing videos! I’m not entirely sure how well the compression will be in relation to uploading on youTube! Another words quality may very well be too much for little old youTube to handle! But since the vids have gotten so popular I may just serve them from my own server and you can have them in all their beauty and glory minus bad compression from youTube. It’s entirely debatable at this point as I’m quite busy lately and haven’t much time to fiddle! I’ve also got a few comments about the videos making you feel slightly like a milkshake as I wriggle it around from here to there and everywhere! Soooooooo..recording using the Mini DV will make life easier as I can set it down and babble about everything and anything where as with the digital camera I have to hold it on my hand while speaking!
Let’s see what happens
I’m a true girly girl in ever sense of the word! I love cosmetics, I love bath products, I love new shoes and gorgeous clothes, I love all girly bits and bobs! Anything that’s pink and shimmers is always appealing!
The extent of my girly nature ends when it comes to doing my nails! I’m a big time nail biter! I bite my nails constantly! It’s a terrible habit that’s difficult to break! Not only is it terrible but it’s down right disgusting!
This weekend I went away a few days with some friends and decided that I’d get all glam and do my nails. The good news is that it made my chubby little fingers look long and lean. The bad news is it drove me nuts all weekend trying to relearn how to use my hands with such long nails on the tips!
Last night, after getting home, I began the intricate surgery of removing these bloody things! It obviously wasn’t going to be an easy procedure so I went to bed very unhappy!
This morning I came to work with what remained of these nails on and promptly sat in the washroom for the better part of the last 30 minutes popping them off one by one because I am unable to work with these freaking things on!
I give huge kudos and props to those of you who are able to function day to day with long nails! As for me I’ll stick to my bad habits and keep chomping away at the bit…!
