YSL Vinyl Lip Cream Stain Review

Hello Friends! I can not believe I forgot to post yesterday!!!! OMG, I was doing so good. Oh well no use crying over spilled milk. Any ways I mentioned before that I won a contest on twitter and I received two YSL Vinyl Lip Cream Stains. I wanted to share my thoughts on them!

My swatches aren’t amazing but the left is shade 403- Rose Happening and the right is 402- Rouge Remix. I am utterly obsessed with these lip vinyls. They are incredibly creamy and smooth, leaving your lips feeling super soft. They also stain the lip leaving a lasting color all day. They layer over other lip colors very well also. So if you aren’t a huge fan of how liquid matte lipsticks can leave your lips feeling, these will soften them up!

Overall I would definitely say these are amazing and definitely approved. The only set back is that they are 36$ each… Super steep for a lip color but the formula is awesome. Something I would have never purchased myself if I didn’t win it. But now I want them all!!

My Son is Turning ONE!!

Hello everyone!! I hope your October is going so well! I can’t believe that I have done so well with posting every day so far! haha So today marks the one month mark to my son’s first birthday and as most moms I am so excited!!! I have been planning this birthday party for a while now but everything is closing in on the big day. I wanted to share some of my ideas and party planning tips.

DECOR: I am doing a Dr. Suess themed birthday. I found some decor at Target that I can use to label food in cute Suess ways. I picked up some fabric at Hobby Lobby to create a “banner” to go around his high chair. At the dollar tree I picked up blue and red table cloths and blue, red, and white poster board. I cut up the poster board to create a banner that will display his month by month baby pictures.

FOOD: We are doing a BBQ and grilling lots of yummy foods. I am going to be doing lots of Dr. Suess themed sides, snack, sweets, and drinks.

  • Pink Yink Ink Drink- pink lemonade
  • New Blue Goo- blue punch
  • 1 fish 2 fish red fish blue fish- colored gold fish in a fish bowl
  • poodles with noodles- pasta salad
  • green eggs and ham- pretzels with white chocolate and green candies
  • Dr. Suess Soup- homemade chex mix/ trail mix
  • Truffala Fruits- fruit tray

There are so many ideas that you could do, these are just some that I am doing. I am also making a smash cake and cupcakes. I also ordered a party pack that includes plates, napkins, cups, cutlery, and a table cloth all in my theme.

I consider myself crafty so I am doing my best to make and craft everything that I can instead of buying a lot of the things. I have lots of ideas and I have been working away to make this a great party!

(all photos are courtesy of pinterest, i take no credit but hope to recreate some of these and do them justice. After Baby K’s birthday I will add my own pictures and share how the party went!!)

Friday the 13Th

Day 13 of Blogtober and it’s friday the 13th! Being the halloween freak that I am, I’m going to have a quick, short post for yall.

This is my necromorph I created. Don’t ask me what a necromorph is because it is a mystery. It is just a weird creature. I used liquid latex paste and aluminum foil to create the jaw piece and used ellimorph plastic to create the teeth and just painted everything including my face. I also added lots of hair serum to my hair to make it greasy and gross.

I’ve been trying to go out of my box and work on different looks. I don’t love how this turned out but still thought it was cool.

Bath Time Troubles

I have recently made a discovery that should have been super obvious but it wasn’t until it happened to me and my family! While going through our normal night time routine of giving baby K a bath I realized that some of his bath toys were dark inside. They were growing mold!!!! GROSS! One squeeze of our bathtime basket balls and black gross-ness was in the bath water. I quickly removed the toys and drained the water. This is when I decided that there will be no more bath toys with holes in them.. which is surprising a lot to ask for.

Most bath toys I found were squeeze toys that squirt water. Knowing that I wasn’t just going to keep buying bath toys that could grow mold on the inside and that are very difficult to clean, I kept searching. I finally found a set of plastic boats that can’t hold on to moisture at walmart and found rubber duckies at target that don’t have a pesky hole in the bottom!

Moms make sure you are checking bath toys for mold and drying toys out if they do have holes!!

Be back tomorrow friends! Hope your October is rocking so far!!!

ABH Prism Palette

I dunno about y’all but I am living for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Palette. It is so unique and pretty!!! What do you all think? Is it worth 42$ I have seen some videos where the quality is way up from the subculture blow up. I am just living for the unique colors.                                                                               Screen Shot 2017-10-10 at 3.51.06 PM

I secretly am hoping that Bad Habit will make a dupe for it so that I don’t have to spend 42$ but who knows maybe I will break down and buy it??

Halloween Look #1

This will be a quick little post friends but I wanted to share some of the halloween looks I have done. This is one of my favorite looks I have ever done. Me and my husband dressed as a Voodoo Doll and a witch doctor. The look took me many hours to put together and about an hour to apply. I could see but not very well, which meant no driving for me and drinking was difficult. I had to use a straw and eating was not possible. But I had a blast scaring people and everyone wanted to take pictures which is always fun for me!

It took lots of liquid latex, masking tape, hemp string and fake blood.

Over all was such a fun night and costume. I loved it!!!
