Real Beauty Gold Star Awards: Best Makeup from 2012

Thought I would share this link with you gals and guys if you haven't seen it yet. I found it on my yahoo homepage. I don't know about you guys but I find that honestly when they make out these lists there are more than likely alot of products that completely out shine the ones that they end up choosing. I'm not really sure how exactly they choose the products that make their list but I know that I personally find it extremely lacking. Especially for those of us who do steer towards the more budget friendly products. And by saying that I don't mean dollar tree makeup, even though I am no stranger to that and do love alot of the products I have found at my local dollar tree. However, I am talking about more higher end drugstore makeup like Physicians Formula, brands like that. I personally think that Maybelline is a incredible brand with so many wonderful products with great quality. I just don't understand why these types of lists always have to consist of all or in this case most high end makeup. Doesn't make sense to me. If they were going to go with higher end makeup like obviously they set out to do then I think that Lorac should have been on the list alot more tmes than some of the other ones they picked. That is just my opinion though, take it for what it is worth, to most it's not worth anything but I'll still put it out there for those of you who do Anyway, here is the link to the original article. Check it out and let me know what you think about the products that made the list.

3. Start school in the fall or get a job once the kids start school in the fall.
4. Write in my kid's journal more.
5. Write in my journal more.
6. Start and finish the kids scrapbooks.

Tell me what yours is in the comments, I would love to hear them!
Now, as for why I haven't posted in awhile...honestly, this month has been really crazy. I'm sure some of you already know that I started making youtube videos on my channel again at the beginning of the month and I have really been focusing alot of getting some good quality videos back up on my channel and building the content back up. In the process of doing that, I have slacked with my blog again and I do apologize. I can't promise I will be extremely active on here now because of me doing videos again and just real life in general but I can promise to make an effort to be as active as I possibly can and post some hopefully interesting stuff for all my readers! Ok on with the pichaul!

I went to Target today and was picking up a few last minute gifts and was so excited to see that they finally had a Sonia Kashuk quad in Show Stoppers! I have been trying to get my hands on this quad for months and my Target was always sold out of it. They always had all the other ones in stock but never the show stoppers. Today they had one left and I got it! ha! I must say that my first purchase of these particular quads was the one in Brown eyed Girl. At first I hated it and regretted buying it because there was so much fall out it was horrible and the pigmentation was just not great at all and for $14.00 you expect a decent product. However, I started using the shadows with a damp very densely packed brush and they became amazing!! The fallout was minimal to nothing doing it that way and using a patting motion and the pigmentation was just beautiful! Needless to say after seeing Samantha Schuerman using the show stoppers one I fell in love with that one as well and started trying to get it and finally today I did! I can't wait to use it! I will be doing a video with this quad on my channel very soon so be watching for that! I will also be doing a review video on it as well as the brown eyed girl quad. I also picked up some yummy gum and some of the elf blotting sheets. I have just tried the original blotting sheets and when I saw these with tea tree oil and aloe I had to pick them up because these things are so inexpensive and they work amazing!

So that pretty much does it for my little haul. I have some other hauls that I just posted on my youtube channel if you would care to check those out and see what items I have purchased within the past few days.

My channel:

Oh! And one last thing...we got a new member of our family! Here is a pic of her. Her name is Pixie. She is almost a year old. We adopted her from an animal adoption center. She is the most precious little thing and she is fitting into our family quite nicely!

God Bless everyone! Hope Santa is very good to you this year...teehee!
