Sephora’s Beauty Resolutions

712301 hero

Sephora has a guideline of Beauty Resolutions for us all and I thought I’d see how many of these “resolutions” apply to me!

Hmmm Let’s see shall we?!

I will use SPF everyday!

Check! I do indeed use SPF everyday and so should you and if you’re not I highly suggest it. Be you 13 or 55 start using it before you destroy your skin!

I will wash my face everyday!
(Click here to learn about my skincare regime)

No problem got this one covered too! I’m actually anal about washing my face so we should be a ok! Remember kids remove your makeup before going to bed!

I will spend less time on my hair!
(Click here to learn how I simplified my haircare!)

Hells I barely spend anytime at all on mine so we should be safe here! It’s either in a bun or it’s flying around my head doing a bad Little Orphan Annie imitation (Those are the days I wander around the city trying to locate my very own Daddy Warbucks!).
I will lose weight!
(Click here to see how you can lose weight using a ligploss!)

It’s not that easy Sephora! I’ve been trying for years and I’m still quite short and round! I’ll try harder. Promise. I’ll even use lipgloss to aid me!

I will try a new scent!
(Click here to read about the new scent I tried recently!)

Hey! Got it covered! I tried a new scent recently and I’m always on the look out for new blends! Check!

I will create the perfect smoky eye!
(Click here, here, and here to see some “smoky” eye looks)

I dunno if it’s perfect but I definately love creating some dramatic looks with grays, blacks, and silvers!

I will be more adventurous!
(Click here, here, and here to view some adventurous makeup looks)

I’m adventurous! I plan on bungee jumping off the Empire State Building in 2008! Until than I’ll settle on being adventurous with my makeup and we all know by now how very bold I am with makeup!

I will keep my Beauty organized!
(Click here to see how organized I am!)

I dunno if I’d call my beauty organized but I sure do try to attempt to have some sort of organization with my cosmetics!

I will feed my skin healthy ingredients!
(Click here to read about my past posts about Lush Fresh Cosmetics!)

No problem! Lush has me covered!

I will treat my hair with respect!
(Click here to read more about haircare!)
We’ve already been through this haven’t we?!

I don’t personally have any Beauty resolutions for myself but answering the Sephora one’s was sure fun icon wink

Do you have Beauty Resolutions? Anything you aren’t doing and should be with your skincare regime? Are you wanting to be more adventurous with your makeup application?

Tell me about ‘em!

I’m all ears!

Catching Up on Comments!

Hey there icon wink

Just a quick note to let you guys know I’m doing my best to get caught up with e-mail and comments! I have about 50 comments to get through but I’m slowly getting there! So sorry about the delay in my reply but Blogger is a pain in the butt when it comes to comments and it’s difficult to locate comments when they are posted on older posts! So I have to go in post the comment, locate it by searching, and finally reply icon smile

If I’m a little slow going that’d be why!

As for e-mails that’s a scary thing to say the least but I’m doing my best to get caught up on all my e-mails from you gorgeous folk icon wink

About the only person that gets a reply from me lately would be Row but aside from that I’m wayyyyyyy behind!

So do excuse my mess while I reply to each one of you individually icon wink

I feel like I need a personal assistant sometimes hehe!

Hope your Holidays went well and all your present wishes came true!

Pur Minerals Face Kit

I’ve tried the Bare Minerals face kit and found it lacking so now I’m being a glutton for punishment and currently lemming this:

2129118

Don’t ask me why but this set somehow intrigues me. It looks cheap as hell but I can’t resist the lure for some odd reason!

Maybe it’s the marbleized blush? Could be the tacky cheap brush? I’m not sure what it is but it’s pulling me in and somehow I feel myself clicking submit and buying this (only to be disappointed I’m POSITIVE)!

Have you tried Pur Minerals?
Love ‘em?

Convince me! Because I’m curious!

Megan Makes It Big

Remember our little friend Megan?

Family2

No (For shame how can you forget this gorgeous child!)? Click here to refresh your memory!

Megan has made it quite big and is now appearing in all her glory on Kiss and Makeup’s website!

CLICK!

I’m positive she’s properly chuffed that she’s now not only exposed to everyone on my blog and her cousin’s but a majority of the UK as well!

A special thanks to Kiss and Makeup for making Megan a star I’m positive this will convince her to sign a contract with the Muse to do weekly tutorials!

Click over to Make Up & Stuff to visit with Row and I’m sure, if you’re lucky, you’ll see Megan around too!

Sephora has a few odd pieces on sale. Nothing to get too hyped over but you might want to add one or two into your cart when shopping so that you can hit the $75 Free Shipping mark! Check them out by clicking here!

A majority of Bath and Body Works items have been snatched up but my eye does spy a few items that would fit nicely in my Boxing Day shopping cart! I’ll tell you right now don’t bother going in store as nothing is left. At least here in New York there isn’t. I’ve been to several Bath and Body shops and absolutely nothing resides on the shelves! However, online has some fab items left over still!

If you happened to be a cheeky little monkey and haven’t yet gotten a gift for someone on your list you might wanna snatch these up:

Other Temptation items are on sale as well but not for as good a deal as I had hoped for so they remain unmentioned in this post my friends! They were on sale from the 23rd-25th but have since risen in price!

Head over to the lovely Bliss website and get 10% off Everything! This ends really soon so hurry!
