Well Hello my beautiful and lovely people!!
Surprise! I am back lol. AGAIN AGAIN!!!! Listen, I swear to you guys, I think my life is on track + normal + boom, I get hit with some other weird or crazy thing that happens and I end up not having time to do anything or something gets hacked!!!!.
Omg, I’m so happy to be back! I love blogging and I’ve missed sharing with everyone!! How have you guys and gals been? I’ve been pretty much great but as with any life on earth, there have been ups and downs. One major up has been the new car the bf and I got! Omg, *squeeeee* it’s been a while so having transportation again is so so amazing! 🚘
We have been enjoying the freedom of transportation and going out and doing more things. We’ve seriously gotten into Archery and it is now my obesession/hobby. We’ve been consistent and really really loving it and kicking major bootay!!
If this were an Orc, it would have fought in vain!!
Also, I met more of my bfs family and we had a wonderful time together. They make me miss my family (mum, dad, brother, and doggie Bear) so so much more. Made my heart a little bit bigger! 💜 💜 💜
Even though things have been a bit crazy and work literally took over my life (didn’t get to really celebrate Valentine’s Day 😐) we still managed time to relax with friends and take in the beauty of our planet.
All in all, life is good. Just busy and at times stressful but lovely all the same. I’m soooo stoked to be back so I hope you guys are excited for more content!!
Until Next Time…

I have been away again…SO SORRY! OMG, work has me all kinds of cray cray right now. Most of the time after work I am so tired I don’t even want to look at another computer screen lol. WTF, I mean, I loooove blogging but I need a break sometimes from the cyber world….okay enough of that break. 🙂
So, I’ve been bored with my current handbags and thought hey…I want to go shopping and I want a new bag dagnabit!! I looked around online for a bit and remembered that I had a Little Black Bag account and decided to see what they had to offer. Oh boy…this could be trouble…
LBB (Little Black Bag) was having an awesome deal where if you were a VIP member, you could buy a handbag and get 2…yes 2 free. That un-boxing will be coming soon but, the first bag I received was a solo order the day before the sale. This bag (bag in photos) is so spacious and shiny lol, It’s faux leather and has two zippers on the side for decoration. The bottom front has studs and rhinestones and the interior has a zippered pocket and solid black interior. Super super cute and a little over the top!
The handbag is by LaTique and retails for $108.00 and through LBB it was$58.99 with shipping but I also received additional free gifts with my purchase so that just made the deal soooo much sweeter!
I cannot wait until next month to make another purchase. I did spoil myself this month and made two purchases from the site but hey, I work hard for my money and I feel I deserve to treat myself whenever I feel like it as long as I have my priorities in order…right? I feel that should be the case for EVERYONE!!
I hope you guys enjoyed the little peek at my mini haul and please stay tuned for part two of my LBB purchases!!!!
Until Next Time…
So sorry for the short hiatus, I started a new job + wanted to get adjusted + wanted to get use to my schedule + sleep patterns + all that jazz lol. Anyhoo…How have you lovlies been?? I’ve been pretty good, also working on doing a Doctor Who inspired makeup series soon! If you don’t know, I am absolutely obsessed w/ Doctor Who + have been a fan since I was 5. More info on my obsession later…
So this is an EOTD (eye of the day) that I did back on 02.18.14. I thought it was a fun look that was inspired by a photo I saw on a beauty page I follow. In the photo the person used red eye shadow so I used it in a way that worked for me as well. I wore this look to work because it was simple but daring much like my personality hehehe.
So, I started a new job which has been interesting. Things did not start off smoothly so I had a bit of an annoyance twitch for several days but hopefully that is behind me…hopefully lol. The new company is great though based on what I know of it so far + I am looking forward to learning more and excelling like I am made to do! I have met some pretty cool people so far + we seem to get on well + have a laugh here + there which is great! Helps the day go by faster!!
In my training class we set up a potluck which was really awesome because everyone loves a good spread of delicious foods! I made a vegetarian lasagna which was NOT vegan friendly because it was loaded with cheese chese, faux meat (100% vegetarian Morning Star Crumbles), veggies + MO CHEESE lol. Everyone seemed to enjoy it very much which was nice to see. 🙂
There was lots of singing in my class too lol. My co worker + I like to keep the people entertained + have been nicknames Sonny + Cher lololol.
Okies, so my bf surprised me with a bday party recently (02.22.14) which was really cool because it was Doctor Who themed and everyone had on bow ties because ya know…bow ties are cool! Lol. Below is the look I wore thinking I was just going to dinner lol. If I had known, I would have had an awesome DW themed look lol.
Welp, that is all for now, I just wanted to update you guys + will be back later today or tomorrow with another EOTD that I’ve done + some other good stuffs!!
Behave yourselves out there! ;}
Until Next Time…
My lighting isn’t the best so when it comes to filming a makeup tutorial, it’s difficult to show the actual color pay off. I plan to do post on here every so often of fun looks that I come up with in order to share them with you + to get feedback + suggestions on what else you wish to see. Below, is a look that I did today just for fun!
1. NYX Eye Shadow Base in White
2. Coastal Scents 88 Color Eye Shadow Palette (Greens + Deep Purple)
3. BH Cosmetics Take me to Brazil 30 Color Eye Shadow Palette (Yellow + Blue)
4. Jordana 12 HR Made To Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil in 01 Black Point
5.Kiss Ever EZ Lashes in #10 (Super natural + adds fullness)
I hope you enjoyed + I’ll catch ya laterz!!
Until Next Time…
Hmmm, what’s in my makeup bag? Well, lets take a look shall we??
Marc by Marc Jacobs cosmetics bag.
Wet n’ Wild Vanity Palette, Sephora blotting sheets, Yes to Cucumber makeup wipes, makeup brushes, Lady Gaga Fame perfume, Cinnamon bun hand sanitizer (Bath +Body Works), Ms Chick Blush, NYX Lip Gloss, Maybelline Line Stiletto liquid liner, FabuLiner, Em Mascara, MUA Kooky Lip Lacquer, Rock + Republic press powder in Velvet.
I love this press powder! It’s so fine + silky. Too bad I’ve hit pan because I don’t know if I will ever find this product again. I am pretty sure the cosmetic line has been discontinued for the brand. Mega sad face!! 😦
I like this perfume + sanitizer. They smell so yummy! Nom nom nom. The Fame perfume is not the normal scent I wear on a regular basis but it’s my in bag go to at the moment.
I love this palette! It’s the easiest go to palette and has every color I need for a quick neutral look. If I am running late or just want more sleep, I will do my makeup on the train or in a car…just depends where I’m going + this palette becomes my best friend!! I also can create a pretty simple smokey eye too!
Hope you liked this look into my makeup bag! What’s in your??
Until Next Time…
After I hopped out the shower I decided it would be a good time to do an everday makeup routine video. Part of the video freezes near the end and to this very moment, I do not know why!!!! *Shakes fist in air*!!
This is the normal routine I do if I am running out or if I am going to work but don’t feel like looking so fab. Maybe in the near future I will do a video of my “night out”, “date night” look. Would you guys want to see that? Maybe I will do a skin care routine video as well…hmmmmmm….OPTIONS PEOPLE!! Lol
I hope you like the vid and let me know what you think.
Until next time,
LOVE, PEACE + SHOPPING RECEIPTS!
So, on my YouTube channel I was requested to do the “What’s in my shower” tag and I never got a chance to actually do it until recently!! Check out my vid and let me know if there are any tags you want to see me do. Also, feel free to share your videos with me too! I’m always looking for new treasures in the YouTube world!
until next time….
♚LOVE, PEACE + SHOPPING RECEIPTS!! ;)♚
So, I know it’s been a long time since I said I would be blogging and posting on YouTube again but my life has been crazy busy!! Let me fill you in on the deets.
I just moved to a new apartment. I did have an apartment with my roommate but that wasn’t working so I moved out. Sometimes you just need your own space. Now that I’m in my new place, once I paint and get a few things, I can start making youtube videos again!! Yay!
I bought this pretty (and inexpensive ($1)) wrapping paper that I plan to use as my filming background. I am also working on purchasing lighting so I can do Makeup tutorials and fashion videos.
Here are a few pics of my apartment:
Right now that’s all I have. My bedroom is just storage space at the moment and the kitchen needs some cleaning and organization.
Another thing that has changed in my life is my boyfriend! I haven’t been in a relationship for a long time and I met him and well, things changed. He’s sweet, nerdy, a cutie pie and his name is Charlie. He’s so fun to be around so I’m really glad we met!
I’ve been working a lot lately and that’s not only my 8-5 gig but my business as well. I’ve been away from Chic n’ Black Styling for a while because I’m working on new endeavours for the company. I think the next step will be our accessories and lingerie line. It’s so exciting but so much work!! In the end though, it will all be worth it!
My regular job has been insane too and I’ve been going through a lot of changes there as well. I will update you guys soon on that information, it’s exciting stuff!!
Overall, life has been crazy but a huge blessing all at the same time. I definitely have been having some tough issues to deal with so it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. It’s life, not fair yet surprising! I’m excited to get back to blogging and making YouTube vids for everyone!! If you have any suggestions let me know and I will start working on the YouTube suggestions I received as well. I thank you guys for your support as always and can’t wait to be back!!
LOVE, PEACE AND SHOPPING RECEIPTS
