Cranberry Blue + Silver Smokey Eye feat. ColourPop Eyeshadows | Makeup Play

Speaking of my obsession with ColourPop.... along with the blushes and lippie stix, I purchased an embarrassingly large amount of eyeshadows as well. I was playing around with some colors and wanted to show some of the ones I purchased.

ColourPop Super Shock Cheek in Quarters | Review & Swatches

Ever since Colourpop appeared into my makeup world,  I've been obsessed. Now that I'm on my 4-ish shipment, I wanted to review a fairly new product of theirs - ColourPop Super Shock Cheeks (blush) in Quarters.

Let's Do It Again (Acoustic) - J Boog | Music Monday

Happy Music Monday! The weather is all kinds of gloomy today so I thought I'd post one of my favorite easy/happy/sunshine-up-my-butt songs. I love reggae but I've recently ( is 1-2 years recent?) been loving island reggae more and more. I went to Hawaii for the first time about a year or so ago for a company trip with the boyfie and ever since then I've been hooked. I need to remind myself to buy J Boog concert tickets soon! He's playing at House of Blues Anaheim on 4/20 (appropriate, right?). I hope you enjoy!

PS: I've been slacking recently with posts because I went to Mammoth last week! I went snowboarding for the first time in about 10-11 years and I have all these bruises on my body to prove it. I don't even have a Weekend in Makeup post for this week because my focus was more on trying not to fall for the 1,000th time. Hopefully I can get 2-3 makeup posts going soon! Cheers!

Weekend in Makeup: 2/13/15-2/15/15

Happy Monday! Happy Discounted Chocolate Day! Happy Hungover Day! I had an awesome weekend filled with lots of laughing + eating. I love post Valentine's Day weekend because I'm still in a state of googly love-eyes (pardon the cheesiness). Here's a couple makeup-y things + random stuff I did this past weekend:

Wore Red Cherry #43's (only $1.99!) for Date Night on Friday...

Valentine's Day Neutral Smokey Eye + 4 Lip Options | Makeup Play

I know it's supposed to be Editorial Thursday today but since Valentine's Day is coming up I figured a neutral look with different lip options would be a good way to go... Editorial Thursday will resume next week :)

100 Books You Must Read Before You Die

God knows I love a good book. Bring me anywhere that seems like a very horrible situation: DMV, Doctor/Dentist Office, Disneyland (waiting for lines), Urgent Care (my wait last time was 4 hours) and I will be thoroughly entertained with my book/kindle.

Weekend in Makeup: 2/6/15-2/8/15

I think It's really funny that the last time I did a "Weekend in Makeup" post was exactly a year ago. This means time flies and I really suck at updating my blog. I obviously want to keep rolling with this type of thing so onward to the pictures!

Used this primer for the first time & it was love at first application on Friday...

3 Ingredient Banana Bread | Sometimes Jowee Cooks

Confession: I reaaallllllllly don't know how to cook. Or bake. I will probably never make or feature anything here that I've concocted on my own, they're all going to be adaptations or copies from a recipe I found online. I'm surrounded by a lot of friends/family that do know how to cook really well so I guess you can call me lucky in that aspect. That being said, I'm a really impatient person when it comes to multitude of things so when I do get excited about recipe's they're usually the most easiest, fool proof & idiot proof type of recipes. I kid you not. (I mean the outside of this banana bread already looks like it's burnt, right? LOL. It still was really good so I'm featuring it!)

Neutral Glam w/ Pop of Green | Editorial Thursday

FACT: I've been a makeup hoarder for over 12 years now. I'm also a creature of habit. That being said, I'm loyal to makeup products that I love but unfortunately some that I've loved/liked in the past gets pushed back into the haven't-used-in-a-while bin. Doing this new "Editorial Thursday" series will help me out of my habit-funk and let me play with some new techniques and colors...
