Oh NO...not AGIAN!!

Ok guys, I am deffo not going to be making any youtube vids for a few days agian. I went to the beach on Saturday (June 27th) and got myself burnt to a crisp agian! Trust me, that exclamation mark isnt for excitement. It was strictly unintentional, I spent most of the time under the umbrella with my son because he was kindof cranky. We were there for a total of like four hours and I think combined total time of me in the sun was like maybe two hours but I highly doubt it and BAM!!! I never expected it, but this time it is way worse than the one I got when I had my garage sale back on June 13th. My back got it this time and I cant sleep, I can barely bend over, it literally feels like my skin is ripping off from my body. No exaggeration guys.....eww! Last night I had to put towels over my pillows and sleep with cold wash cloths on my back all night and I still barely slept. I am constantly cold because I am losing so much heat from my body through the burned area. It is horrible. I cant wear a bra, I cant wear any shirts but tank tops and they hurt really bad. So needless to say I am in veg mode until I can start to feel a little better. Hope everyone understands. I do have a long list of videos to do for you guys when I feel up to it though and I really think you guys are going to like them so stay tuned!
Love you hotties!!
And remember.......wear SUNSCREEN!

Upcoming Stuff

Hey hotties....

I just wanted to stop in and let everyone know what is coming up from me within the next two weeks. Below is a video of some of the upcoming videos that you will be seeing from me on my channel soon. I actually have to put a couple of them together, I cant just wing it...like I normally do..lol Well I could but then they wouldn't be very informational for you guys. I also plan on focusing alot more on my weight loss vlogs on my collaboration channel with Carly and Ela called LoseThatBooty (youtube.com/user/LoseThatBooty) I have really been slacking in the weight loss department over the last week or so and I need to get refocused. I also am expecting to be getting alot of free samples of some cosmetics, fragrances, etc within the next month, so you might see some reviews on those if I think they are worthy. Thats about it for now.....

Oh, if any of my hotties (subbies) will be in Galveston on Saturday June 27th, stop by the beach and say hello =) I will be there for most of the day with my hubby, mother in law, sister and my twins. I would love to meet ya!

"Pretty in PiNk Nails"

Hey hotties!
I did my nails a couple days ago. Thought I would share them with ya. Of course I did them in pink!!! My favey color! Woot!

For this look I used:

Jordana polish from my King Dollar $1.00 in Pink Pearl
Bogi Brites nailpaint from Sally Beauty Supply $2.50 in Punky Pink
Love My Nails top/base coat from Walmart $1.79




I painted my whole nail with the Pink Pearl polish. Waited for it to dry. Then I used scotch tape to tape off the tips of my nails and painted the tips with my Punky Pink and waited for it to dry. Then I removed the tape and applied the Love My Nails top coat and let it dry.




BH Cosmetics 88 Shimmer Palette

Hey everyone!

The long awaited moment has come and the wonderful UPS man delivered my 88 Shimmer Palette! I am so excited to get it. I did NOT order it from Coastal Scents, I ordered mine from BHCosmetics.com

Not only are they cheaper on the palettes but their shipping is ALOT cheaper than Coastal Scents. I originally was going to order it from CS but when I went to place my order they were going to charge me somewhere around $12.00 just for the shipping on the same EXACT palette! So I said no flippen way! Then one of my fellow YouTubers told me about this site called BH Cosmetics that was selling the SAME EXACT palettes for cheaper. Of course I was extremely skeptical but I had to check it out and I went to their site and read all of the reviews from their customers, which all gave them 5 stars and saw for myself that they were indeed the same exact ones that CS is selling and they were cheaper and the shipping was so much cheaper. Here is the comparison prices for you guys to show you what I mean:


This is the prices including shipping for the 88 Shimmer Palette:

Coastal Scents Prices: $24.95 for the 88 Shimmer Palette
+$11.49 for shipment to me (I live in Texas)

BH Cosmetics Prices: $21.95 for the 88 Shimmer Palette
+$7.95 for shipment to me

So you guys do the math. Which would you prefer? Plus the ones from BH Cosmetics ship within 24 hours! How can you go wrong with that? My palette arrived to me in a med. sz brown box, it was wrapped in bubble wrap and had brown paper stuffed around it in the box and the box was marked "FRAGILE" My palette was in perfect condition when I got it. Not one single eyeshadow was flawed or broken. So deffo 5 STARS for BH Cosmetics and I will be ordering from them from now on when it comes to the palettes. Below are some pictures of the palette to show you guys that it is the same palette that CS offers. Also, there are some swatches of the colors.
Enjoy Hotties!!

The 88 Shimmer Palette:









Here is a pic showing the size of the shadows compared to a dime. I was a bit disappointed that the size was so small but I mean come on...who uses that much eyeshadow anyway. It's just they did look bigger in the YouTube videos that I saw of this palette.





And here are some swatches that I did from random colors in the palette on my fingers.
I do NOT have any primer on my fingers in this picture.




And here is a picture of some swatches I did on my arm of some random colors from the palette. I did apply my homemade primer to my arm before I did the swatches.






Makeup & Nails...OH MY!

Ok my makeup began to over run the top of my dresser and I found that I had a couple baskets even sitting in my floor (which I hate), so I had to come up with another idea as to where I was going to put all my makeup and nails. We had a small tv stand in our livingroom in the corner with just some random pictures sitting on it because we just got a new entertainment center not to long ago, so I thought it would be a nice idea to bring it into our bedroom and use it for storage of my makeup and nails! It works perfectly! Well....at least until I get more makeup...lmao! Here are some photos....





All of the storage containers you see where either bought at Walmart, the King Dollar, or the Dollar Tree. =)

Table Centerpiece by ME!

Hey everyone! Sorry it has been so long since I posted a blog on here. I won't make excuses but I will tell you what I have been up to. First off all I had to organize my apartment and get ready for a HUGE garage sale which took place June 13th. I did ok but could have done alot better if we would have had it on a Thursday, so we are going to have another one in a few weeks and see how we do. After getting all the stuff out of my apartment I had a ton of room so I had to reorganize all of my closets, etc. and clean because I hadn't cleaned in over a week because of the sale. One top of all that I got a major sunburn the day of the sale and could barely move and wear clothing! OUCH!! So thats about it in a nutshell. I haven't even really made many videos this week for my channel. However, I will be back in full swing with my videos for sure next week if not sooner, so stay tuned, I have a ton of great videos coming up!

For now though I wanted to brag on myself a little bit and show you guys my masterpiece...lol

I needed a flower centerpiece for my kitchen table and all the ones I looked at were way to pricey or weren't of my liking. Soooooo....you know me....I made a trip to my King Dollar to see what I could find....here is the finished product!




I love it! And it only cost me $5.00 to make it.
It is one of my favorite flowers so I am very happy with it.
Items bought at King Dollar Store:
Three HUGE Sunflowers $1.00ea
Glass Vase $1.00
Bag of Rocks to fill Vase $1.00
Ivy vines I just cut from another one of my baskets of fake greenery flowers.
