Lisa's Wedding

Hey Everyone!

It's the end of wedding season for me.. I had my last wedding this past Saturday. It was one of my best friends weddings and was truly blessed to see her walk down the aisle that day!
As of right now.. 2 weddings that I know of ....I get to go to next year.. crazy how everyone is getting married.. and I just keep watching it all happen around me. 
Maybe it will happen to me one day.. but as of right now.. I'll keep dreaming. 
I didn't get a good picture of myself during the wedding so I cropped this one because I didn't know if my friend wanted to be on my blog or not! Anyways.. just a quick post.. Happy Monday! :)

Oh and p.s... first time using fake lashes.. and I think I'm going to get addicted...

October 2012 Empties

Hey Everyone!

This month just flew by.. but I can actually say I think I did a pretty good job with my empties this month *pats self on back* I also have a pretty decent amount of products that are almost used up as well.. I am really trying to use up what I have.. until Black Friday.. then I'm going to all out that day! I love going to Ulta Beauty in the states and doing some damage there.. they have pretty good deals on that day.. It would be lovely if the Naked Palette 2 was on sale... a girl can dream....right?

Now lets start reviewing..

1. Osis Session 3 Finish Hair Spray- This is my FAV hair spray out of everything I have used before. I have been using this can since April of this year and finally finished it (don't use hair spray often) I used this product while I was in Mexico for my friends wedding and I curled my own hair.. even through the rain and heat this hair spray was my new best friend! I bought another hair spray the other day and still nothing will compare to this! The smell is also not bad as well! Already Repurchased. 

2. Shiseido Sun Protection Compact Powder (SP30)- Again I bought this for my Mexico trip in April and now just finished it. The reason why I bought this product was because I didn't want to put sunscreen on my face and break out so I bought this as my alternative. When the lady told me that's all I needed to protect me from the sun I didn't believe her. I was soo scared going out just with this powder on my face... and my result.. no sunburn.. I was amazed! I used this for the whole trip! I have been using it to set my foundation ever since. Would Repurchase. 

3. Bath & Body Works Shower Gel (Pink Grapefruit) - When I bought this in the store I loved it but when I brought it home and used it... I hated it. The smell was a "true" grapefruit smell.. and I don't like that. I like a sweeter grapefruit smell. Wouldn't Repurchase. 

4. O.P.I Avojuice Hand and Body Lotion (Mango)- I love how moisturizing this lotion is. I just throw this little lotion in my bag and I'm off! I love the smell of the sweet mango. I've been doing my clinical for school and using this hand lotion has helped me with my itchy hands from overusing hand sanitizer. Would Repurchase. 

5. Pantene Aqua Light Conditioner- This product didn't make a different to my hair. The smell is good.. it smells very fresh but for my hair type I like using conditioners for chemically treated hair. Wouldn't Repurchase. 

6. Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream (Light/Medium)- I didn't love this product. When it went on it was a pretty nice coverage and my skin looked pretty good.. but then as my day went on it made my skin too shiny for my liking. Wouldn't Repurchase.

7. Gosh BB Cream- Hated this product. When applying it.. it made my skin instantly oily and shiny.. I didn't understand what was happening. I grabbed my compact powder and tried to set it and still it wasn't helping. Wouldn't Repurchase. 

8. Perfume Samples- 
Lady Gaga Fame- Wonderful scent...I would wear this perfume for going out or at night because the scent is quite strong (would buy).
Lovestruck Floral Rush- Wayy too floral for me. The smell stays with you all day but the scent is not for me (wouldn't buy)
Burberry Body- Another perfume that lasts all day but the scent is too powerful for me (wouldn't buy)
Thierry Mugler Alien- Glad I get to try these samples.. another let down for me.. didn't like the smell (wouldn't buy)

9. Sugar Lip Treatment (Fresh)- LOVE this lip product.. it makes my lips feel really smooth and the smell is to die for. Would Repurchase.

10. B. Kamins Nia-Stem Eye Cream- Received this sample from a Luxe Box. I have never heard of the product before. The cream comes out white with little specks of blue in it. I do think its a pretty good cream.. the scent is pretty good. I have already purchased another eye cream instead. Wouldn't Repurchase. 

There ya have it... all my empties for the month of October! If you have any questions about any of the products please leave a message below and I'll answer them!

Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?

Hello Fall/ Autumn Tag! Happy Halloween!

Hey Everyone!

First off I'd like to say Happy Halloween! I'm going to be working today so no Halloween fun for me.. but 
I am dressing up as a cowgirl at work today.. like I always do every year! 
I've been a very bad girl for this month.. not a lot of posts on my behalf.. I am ashamed.. new goal.. more posts for next month.. I promise! 
Miss Sabina from Beauty Blogs and More tagged me to do this tag.. I've been wanting to do it for awhile now.. but now I finally have the time to do it! 

1. It's finally Fall/Autumn what are you most looking forward to this season?
I'm looking forward to ALL the leaves changing... I just love how beautiful everything looks around me. On my way to school.. I just take in all the beauty around me.. while keeping my eyes on the road.. haha

2. What Fall item in your closet are you most excited to pull out?
My scarves.. I love pairing scarves and making cute outfits from them.. I did pick up a couple new ones for the season from Aldo.. so I'm going to make a couple outfits from them and post it on here!

3. Since Halloween is the first holiday to celebrate we all get treated with a horror movie marathon all month long.. What is your favourite scary movie to watch? 
I actually own this movie and I bought it as soon as it came out on video.. its The Ring. I loved the story line in that movie soo much and was very scared when I saw it the first time at the movies. 

4. What is your favourite fall treat? 
As soon as fall hits.. I need my fix of a Starbucks pumpkin spiced muffin or scone.. soo delicious.. I also start drinking my Chai Lattes to keep myself warm. 

5. Now that summer is finally over, what will you miss about it?
I miss not wearing a coat.. haha something so simple as that.. don't get me wrong I love coats and boots but I love the warmness of the weather and the sun hitting my skin. 

6. What Makeup/Beauty products do you like for fall?
I have been loving my new nail polish Essie- Bahama Mama and for lip sticks I've been loving M.A.C- Syrup and NYX- Violet Ray with Revlon- Pearl Plum over it.

7. What have you recently bought in preparation for the upcoming season? 
I recently bought maroon pants from Express.. the colour is unreal and I have made soo many different outfits with them.. I wear the pants at least twice a week. I also purchased my first "leather" coat from Forever 21... I know I never had one before.. and I love it!

8. Have you ever been Trick or Treating?
Yes, many times I have been trick or treating.. some of the costumes I have been were... police officer, alice in wonderland, flight attendant, bunny, princess and lots more...

9. Name the first five things that come to your mind when you think of fall?
Pumpkin, Apple Picking, Pumpkin Carving, Leaves and Boots

10. What is your favourite season and why?
My favourite season is Spring.. the reason why is because I LOVE Spring clothes.. all the pastel colours and I can wear my cute dresses without being really cold!

Thanks again Sabina from Tagging me!

I went out this Saturday to a couple of Halloween parties and a lot of people didn't know who I was for Halloween.. I guess if you knew who I was then you would really know.. but if you didn't know anything about it then you wouldn't know. 

Can you guess who I was?

What were you for Halloween?
