Tarte LipSurgence Tint

The wonderful Fiance let me borrow his phone to take all of these photos.
Isn't he the greatest? :)

Anyway, there's a little story behind this Tarte lip tint. 
I asked the Fiance for this Tarte Limited Edition LipSurgence collection during Christmas time.
As everyone knows they were completely sold out everywhere. :(
So my Fiance found it on and purchased it, and paid almost double for it just so I can have it for Christmas.
He's too good to me. :)
Anyway, unfortunately, it got "lost" in the mail and the lady had to refund him. 
Low and behold, when we went home this past weekend, there it was. "Un-lost"

I couldn't even tell you my excitement, I was just too excited and couldn't believe it!! 
Anyway, this is so old and I'm sure everyone has seen this already but I took photos of it, and I also took swatches for you, because I believe the colors are still available. 

 From left to right: 
Glitzy, Perky, Flashy, Swank, and Dazzled.

Also, my Fiance surprised me with a NookColor tablet holder. We're heading to the beach in late June and I wanted something to protect it from the sand. But I normally just use it around the apartment, in my room. So I didn't really need a case for it..
I found one at Target I really, really liked but it was $30! 
I couldn't bring myself to buy it. 
But he found one on ebay for half the price. (Can you tell he's a huge fan of eBay?)
I absolutely LOVE it!

So what do you guys think about his camera quality on his phone?
Not bad right?
It has so many different setting including Macro! 
Needless to say I was very impressed.
And the quality isn't that bad either!!

Happy Friday everyone!

Guess what?!

You are not going to believe this.

When I went home this past weekend to celebrate a friends birthday...
I forgot my camera!!!!!!

My beloved Sony is sitting on my vanity, very lonely. 
Very lonely indeed. 
I miss her.

Unfortunately I have no camera here. 
I have my iPhone camera, but lets be honest, the camera sucks. 
My Fiance's phone actually has a 8 mega pixel camera on it.
So I might use his.
I have SO many things to take pictures of...
And I have no camera.
Never realized how much this would burden me!
Now you understand why I haven't blogged.

I won't be going home till after finals and that's the middle of May.. AHHH!!! 

I miss you camera,
Love sincerely,

Week in Photos

Haven't done this in a while!
I just realized how insanely popular Instagram was.
I really am behind in the times.
I'm still getting use to it, it is a lot of fun.
And I understand Facebook just purchased Instagram?
How is that going to work?

Anyway, the past two weeks have been very uneventful.
I'm entirely consumed by school work.

This was my view walking home from class. It was so beautiful out. :)

Yummy-licious Special K Protein Shake. SO good & filling!

Workout gear wearing new capris from Kohls

My favorite Lean Cuisine of ALL time, expect they don't sell it at our local Wal-Mart I found these at Target!!

Anyway, like I said, very uneventful. 
I can't wait to show you the awesome things I got in the mail this weekend!
Tomorrow is one of my best friends 21st birthday and we're going out to celebrate and I'm so excited!
Happy Birthday Steph!!

Steve Madden Sandals, TJMaxx Haul, and NOTD

Found some cute things at TJMaxx the other day. 
I really needed shorts, I wanted a pair of bright ones.
I really want bright jeans, but am nervous to try pulling off the look! 

I also did my toe nails a fun design last night after I seen the Sally Hansen stick on ones at Wal-Mart yesterday, so I'll share that first.

Sally Hansen had a white background and bigger black dots, but I'll try to replicate that on my fingers instead. :)

My beloved sandals. 

My beloved sandals with my awesome chic toenails. ;P

Who wears short shorts??? Me! I'll wear them until it doesn't look good any more. Probably in my thirties. lol. I'm not sure about the pair of the left, they might be too short for me. I might be returning them. We'll see!

Anyway, I'll be spending my afternoon working on a tax return for class tomorrow. 

I hope everyone has a great day

Kohls & Marshalls Haul

Yay to me for finally taking pictures of this stuff! 
Am I procrastinating doing school work? Maybe. ;)

Picked up a few things from Kohls and Ross over the past weekend. 

 These two tops are from Marshalls. Yes I loved them that much I bought two in different colors! 
What? They look nice on me!

Also picked up to pairs of work out capris. Much needed!

Not sure if I like the strings hanging, but we'll see. 

I swear my Kohls tank tops. I have them in every color. They fit so well and last so long. Plus their long enough for my long torso, perfect!

Thanks for reading!

Pandora Charms Alternatives - Hallmark Connections

The other day Fiance and I were browsing through the jewelry department at Walmart because I was looking for a cheap bangle I could use to make something I seen on Pinterest. Fiance points out all these charms in the jewelry cases. They were adorable and only $10-14 a piece, and some came with 3 beads in each.

I picked up the cupcake charm.. of course. It was only $10. 
But they have so many other types. And the best part? 
They fit Pandora bracelets.
Hallmark Connections does sell their own bracelets too. 
I thought this would be a great cheap alternative to the Pandora beads or if you wanted to start your daughter her own Hallmark Connections charm bracelet without freaking out that she'll lose it! 

The cupcake charm in comparison with the other Pandora beads. About the same size, maybe a little smaller.

Here's a link to Walmart's Hallmark collection. Check it out! Here.

Just a little side note... this week is going to be absolutely awful for me. I have an exam tonight, an exam tomorrow morning at 8AM. Homework assignment due after that. I have a Tax Exam Thursday and I'm still working on my Audit Case for a company that is due Friday. :( 
So please excuse the lack of posts this week. :(

Small Target Haul

I picked up a few things from Target yesterday. 

My intentions were to only get headbands, but I ended up picking up more things. *Sighs* Gosh, I love Target.

I don't have any Easter decorations for our apartment, so I picked up these table runner for next year. Originally $12.99 70% off, I got it for about $4! 

I picked up a Hello Kitty lip balm for $1.99 and a Hello Kitty shower cap for $3.99. 
I've been using a shower cap that I got from a hotel room in Atlantic City. It's old, and since I made a resolution to wash my hair every other day(so I could stop damaging it with all the heat products I use!), shower caps are really a necessity!

This is the acne kit I swear by. I needed to pick up a new one. The only thing I don't use in it is the cleanser. Bummer.

Thanks for reading!

Ulta Haul

I have a little Ulta haul for you guys and a NOTD. 
I received a coupon for 20% off my entire purchase, I needed new Clean & Clear, and then I did some shopping. 

I seen so many positive reviews on this Physicians Formula Happy Booster. Unfortunately I just noticed it's Translucent. I wanted a nice Pink color. Oh well. I will give it a try.
But it was on sale for $8.00 plus 20% off. And I haven't seen these that cheap in a long time.

Even comes with a pretty pink brush and a compact mirror. Something you can carry in your purse.

My Chick nails that are looking like crap because I was picking at them in class today because I couldn't take hearing around Aggregate Demand one more time in my Intermediate Macro Economics course.

I also picked up a bunch of cute things from Ross and Kohls when I went shopping with my mom. :) (Will  do in another post)

Thanks for reading!

Easter 2012

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!
As always, mine was hectic. 
Had 3 dinners to attend to, on top of driving home for 2 hours. 
It's always good to see family though. :)
Here's my Easter through pictures. 
Unfortunately I didn't snap any photos of any one. I always get so mad at myself for not doing this. 
Sometimes I feel awkward to taking photos, but eh, I'll get use to it. Especially when I have family of my own. :)

 I swear Gerber Daisies are the flowers I want for my wedding. They're so beautiful and colorful.
 My soon-to-be mother in law bought me this Hello Kitty Pez dispenser. I love her!
 My wonderful mom purchase this adorable Pandora bunny for Easter.
 Look at his little fluffy tail!
 She also bought me this Pandora present. She said she thought I would love it because of the bow on top, .. I do I do!
 Mr. Odie Dodie got a hold of my Chicken my fiance bought me for Easter. Oh my gosh it was so cute, I should have recorded him. Then he got defensive when someone took his friend away. SO cute!
 I made my Fiance and his mom Gertrude Hawk Chocolate Covered Strawberries and attempted to add white drizzle. Towards the end I think I got better.

Here's the Easter cupcakes I decided to make. All I did was use vanilla cake mix, buttercream frosting(my favorite), died coconut with green food coloring and topped with little Eggs. They were a hit!
 Here's a better photo. Also, please take notice of my Chick nails! I put them on for Easter, I had to!
