Review Tuesday Treasures 12/17

It's that time of year again where stressed is an understatement! With that being said, I apologize (for the  one millionth time) for the lack of posts, but I'm back to review lasts weeks Tuesday Treasures! 

The Paul Mitchell Shampoo and Conditioner are pretty great!
I'm not exactly sure what the Shampoo does, but the Conditioner gets rid of the tangles when you're in the shower!
The smell is still amazing, and if I buy it again, it'll definitely be for the smell.

The c. Booth Firming Body Lotion, once again, smells amazing. 
This produce actually works though - I know it's a little too early to tell, but I have seen a difference in my skin. 
 It feels firmer and I'm loving it!

Soap & Glory's Hand Food is incredibly moisturizing.
It's a definite must-have for your purse!
I must say I love the Real Techniques Eye Brushes
They're great for beginners who are trying to master the world of eyeshadow!

LAVANILA's The Healthy Deodorant is just a no.
I do not recommend this at all!
It might smell kind of good, but it does NOT prevent you from sweating.
In fact, I sweat more when I use this product. 
The Too Faced Beauty Blogger Darlings gets a thumbs up.
I really like the 
Better Than Sex Mascara, so I will probably be purchasing the regular size of it.
I haven't tried the 
Primed & Poreless Face Primer yet - oops - but the Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer works great as a bronzer as well as eyeshadow. Shadow Ensurance is a makeup bag must!
Looking for the perfect holiday red lipstick? Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics in NSFW is it!
It does bleed around the lips, but the next product is the perfect solution!
Sephora's Universal Lip Liner is the solution for bleeding lipstick! 
It goes on clear and keeps your lipstick from going all around your mouth - another must-have!
I'm not a big blush fan, but I LOVE Sephora's Cream Blush in No 5 Rose Glow
It's a beautiful color, and it stays on - I highly recommend this product. 

ALMAY Shadow Softy in Smoke is a great crease color.
It's a very beautiful smokey gray, and the color stays.

Tuesday Treasures 12/17

Needless to say, I came home and treated myself to a little shopping. Let me just tell you, there is NO shopping in Starkville - there are maybe 3 good boutiques and if you want makeup, you go to Walgreens, CVS or Walmart. So basically college is saving me money!

Well, when I got home I headed straight to Ulta & Sephora - I could have cried tears of joy! These are some of the items I purchased, and I'm curious to see how they work. All of them are things I have never tried, and I'm a tad nervous about them. I'll be doing a follow-up post some time to share my opinion on these products. Let me know if there are any products you think/want me to try. Enjoy!

The Soap & Glory Hand Food smells great and has marshmallow in it!
The c. Booth Firming Body Lotion smells so good I just want to eat it! 

WARNING: The Aveeno Leave In Conditioner does not mist. I repeat, it does NOT mist! It just kind of squirts out the stuff, but it hasn't bothered me so far! I give this one a thumbs up.

The Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo and Conditioner will make your body tingle just by smelling it! It is a mix of Tea Tree Oil, Lavender & Peppermint - it smells like you're in the salon.

I thought I'd give this little Too Face Beauty Blogger Darlings sample set a try - I'm dying to try that mascara!

Real Techniques Eye Brushes
LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant

Sephora's Universal Lip Liner is a colorless lip liner that is suppose to prevent lipstick from bleeding.
I have been wanting to try Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics & finally got one in the perfect holiday red color - NSFW

I've heard great things about Sephora's Cream Blush, so I got it in No 05 Rose Glow.
I thought the ALMAY Shadow Softies looked great, so I'm trying it in Smoke.

My Other Passion/Obsession

You may or may not have figured it out by now, but I LOVE MAKEUP! I could spend all day on Sephora's website or looking at makeup videos on YouTube - it's actually happened before! I just think makeup is so beautiful, and it gives women such an empowering feeling when they put it on. To me it's just so amazing what makeup can do for you and the different types and varieties.
My makeup craze started my freshman year of high school. I always bought makeup because it looked so pretty in the store, but I never actually wore it (truth be told, I had no clue how to apply it)! Now that I'm older and I'm attending all these fancy events, I've picked up some tips and tricks on the do's and don'ts of makeup - of course YouTube helps! I still don't always wear it, but I still buy it pretty often! (I'm such a sucker for eyeshadow palettes).
I've been considering making a YouTube channel - even though there are already a million and one makeup channels - but I wanted some input on whether or not I should publicly humiliate myself like that! (I mean it could be helpful, but I guess I won't know until I try it, right?)  I would also include my opinion on which items and brands are worth buying!
If you could just comment below or shoot me an email (or text if you actually know me) on if makeup tutorials are a no-go or a good idea, that would be fabulous! I need some input!

I also thought I would share something that I am SUPER proud of myself for! If you have Pinterest, you've probably seen this image (unless my friends and I are just weird and post random things like this), but two of my friends and I decided to give it a shot for our Halloween costumes!
(I did my own makeup - yes my stare is a little creepy/terrifying; Dana did her own - she's the real makeup artist of the group!)

Finals Week

It's finals week which explains my absence, but I am now done! I'm so incredibly happy it's over, and I'm so happy I had such an amazing first semester at Mississippi State!
I know there are still a few of you lucky ducks who haven't taken your exams yet, so here's some motivation to get through them!

Good luck to everyone!

Most of you have probably heard of Etsy, right? And ALL of you have heard of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital? What if I told you there was a way to buy beautiful jewelry from Etsy while benefitting St. Jude? Well, there is!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Needless to say, today is Thanksgiving! With that being said, everyone go out, spend time with family, eat until you can't eat anymore, and be thankful for everything you have! I couldn't be happier that there is a day just for giving thanks, but what people need to realize is they need to be thankful EVERY day! You never know when things could fall apart so give thanks every day of the year!
I hope you all have an amazing Thanksgiving! (and get ready for Black Friday!)

A Great InVESTment

1 | 2 | 3 | 4

I have to admit I love a good vest!  Options 1 and 2 are those popular J.Crew vests that you see all over Pinterest and just on everyone! Option 3 is just adorable and looks incredibly cozy! Option 4 is a bit more casual, but I wear it with a longsleeve tshirt to class and it keeps me toasty. Plus, it makes me look less sloppy - it's perfect for a college student! Patagonia also has some great casual vests if you're looking for more! 
Comment with links to your favorite vests! I would love to check them out!
