2011 Favorites

Well Ladies,it's that time again. The year is ending and we all gotta show which products we loved the most. It's a tradition I have come to I don't have many since I spend most of my time at home with Zoe and I don't wear a touch of makeup.  The last thing I want is for her to get foundation on her lips when she gives me wet kisses. The products I have pictured are the ones I use everyday and/or carry in my makeup bag. I don't have my shampoo or conditioner pictured because I am trying new ones out (I don't like them) lol. I hope to see  your favorites for this year!

Ralph by Ralph Lauren is hands down my all time favorite scent. I hope to get it for either my birthday or anniversay since as you can see,I'm almost out.

Princess by Vera Wang- I received this last Christmas and although I'm not too hooked on it,it does smell very soft and like vanilla. I like wearing it when we go out to dinner or to visit family.

Sweet Pea Lotion is my favorite scent from Bath and Body Works. It leaves my skin smelling so good.

My First Julep Maven Box

Hi Ladies!

I'm not going to go into detail about what Julep Maven is since I'm pretty positive you either have ordered from there or heard about it. I wasn't too interested in buying anything but when I received an email telling me  I would only be charged $5 for my first box,I figured what the heck. Here's what I got:

LOVE the packaging!!!!!! So cute
I picked "Bombshell" can you tell why?
I think I'll use this for New Years Eve!

VERY pretty! Not used to wearing these colors but I love them already!

  I think I'm going to give Julep Maven a try and once I see what I get in next months box,I'll make a decision on whether or not to keep my subscription.

What are your favorite colors from Julep Maven?

Oh My.

Hi. My name is Jennifer and I discovered I have an addiction. You see,the majority of my makeup is under my bathroom sink because our extra rooms and bathroom are being occupied by other people. So until I get one of the other 3 rooms to myself,I have to make due with what little space I have. And let me tell you,it's not much. So I really didn't know just how much stuff I had. Until tonight. I know it's NOTHING compared to some of your collections (I've seen the videos ladies!) but dammit,I am proud of it. Just two years ago I had only enough makeup to fill a little pouch in my purse. I didn't show everything I have because I am tired.... It's midnight and I gotta be up early to help my Mom make tamales. lol. So here is 98% of my collection:

          My foundation,blushes and other face products.

My lip products.

As you can tell,I'm not too into foundation since they're still pretty much full. I started wearing blush a few months ago so I'm still figuring out what other colors will look good on me. I bought a bronzer not too long ago and I am loving it! I wish I tried it out sooner. As for lip products,I really,really have to get out of my comfort zone. There are way too many pinks! I guess I just like playing it safe.

Glendale Glitters

Last night for the first time my boyfriend decided to take Zoe and I to Glendale Glitters,which is basically a bunch of lit up trees,games,food and vendors around a little square in Glendale,Az. I had passed through there a few times over the years but it never interested me. But now Zoe is at an age where she notices the lights and whenever she sees a tree or house decorated with them,she ooohs and aahhhs. So of course,I had to take her <3 The night was VERY cold,but thankfully we had hot chocolate and I wish I had taken more pictures but I got a little caught up in looking at all the pretty stuff. =)

Do you see the motorized animals she's riding? Soooo adorable!!

                              Zoe and her Nana Isabel

Snug as a bug

                    Butterflies in the trees! So cute!

We went into the cutest boutique and got a few things. I plan on going back soon because it was way too packed for me to look at everything they had.

                               I picked this out =)

 How was your weekend? Do you have anything like this in your city?

Well It's About Time!

For an update that is. The reason I haven't been blogging is my old camera broke. I'm sure it's because Zoe dropped it about 27,000 times. The little monster knows how to get into my purse so all my stuff is pretty much fair game for her. On Black Friday we were out buying Christmas toys and while we were at Target my boyfriend asked if I wanted a camera. I wasn't really sure since I knew he'd probably say it was my Christmas gift  (boo!) but he reminded me I needed one. So....I got one. And I LOVE it! Obviously I can't take a picture of it but it is the Nikon Coolpix L105. BTW on Black Friday there weren't many people out and not once did we have to wait in line. Were any of you girls that lucky? I got a few things at Ulta so of course I wanna share them with you =)

                                Can't wait to try the spray!

                                Love Burt's Bees products!

Time Flies.

Zoe is now 13 months old. She has 1 tooth now (yep,just one) she sleeps all through the night,She can say "Mom,Dad,Nana,papa,baba (bottle),jump, light,Kitty,Go Away,Stop,No...just in case you're wondering why she says the last few words..she hates our cat. Every day she learns something new and I am so proud of her. She is such a happy baby! She smiles all day and "talks" so much. I can't wait to see what she does next.

MAC Winnings

I recently won a second place prize in JC's  giveaway. My prize was a gift card to MAC! I placed my order a week ago and it came today =) I am not too familiar with the products and I was really unsure about what to get other than Speed Dial (which I have been wanting for some time) and what sucks is I am the least excited about it. Online it seems like a nice barbie pink,but on my lips it's like a  plum-y pink? Maybe it's my lighting..... it is 8pm. I have pretty pale pink lips so most lipsticks usually look the same on me as they do in the tube. I don't know. I'll try again tomorrow. lol. You can't really see the eyeshadows on my hand,but that's my fault. I should have used my UDPP. Hey,I never said I was a beauty blogger =)


Speed Dial,Full Speed (Sheen Supreme) Just Superb Cremesheen Glass (shadows also swatched)

Everyday Makeup Blog's NYC Halloween Giveaway!

Click HERE to enter Rebekkah's awesome NYC Halloween Giveaway!!

A teeny Tiny Haul.

Hey girls,I know it's been a while since I've posted one of these,but I haven't really made any big purchases. I was a little preoccupied with Zoe's birthday party. So although it isn't much,onto the pictures....

Nivea Cherry Tint,Revlon Coralberry,Jordana Strawberry Icing,ELF Dragonfruit,WnW Brulee,Nivea A Kiss Of shine and LA Colors Jelly Bean

I bought this teasing comb because some of the $ goes to the Susan G. Komen Fund.

I have never tried this product,but I love Pantene's shampoo & conditioner (so I hope it works just as good!)

Solid Love,Firm Fig ( Zoe picked it out) and Rockin' Hard

Rose Picnic Glitter,Exceptionally Gifted,Amethyst,Party of Five Glitters

Sally Girl (no name) Caribbean Coral,Flip Flop Fantasy,Tropicalia

I bought this cause I left my nail polish on a little too long and my nails turned yellow. I am happy to say it worked GREAT and after one use,I saw a complete change in color.

Hope you girls have a great day!!
