Oh so smokey!!

I am obsessed with a smokey eye. I wear a dark eyeshadow and do a smokey eye pretty much everyday of the week. Who says you can't wear dark colors during the day? Whatever, I rock it! You guys also know that I am a MAC addict and rarely do I stray. However, when going on vacation, the individual eyeshadows like I have, take up so much room!! I take way too much makeup with me as it is. I came across this Bobbi Brown palette that I love, I think it will be all I need for my vacation next week. Oh by the way, I'm going to Disney next week in addition to my girls trip to Disney in December. Anyway, back to Bobbi, She actually lives a few towns away from me, so why not support a fellow Jersey girl. I have never used anything from her line, but why not give it a shot! In addition to this palette, maybe I would pack one or two neutral colors like satin taupe or woodwinked by MAC for my trip.

These are the shade that come in the Cool Party Palette:
  • White Eye Shadow
  • Iced Blue Metallic Eye Shadow
  • Rockstar Metallic Eye Shadow
  • Sterling Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow
  • Gunmetal Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow
  • Onyx Sparkle Eye Shadow
It also comes with the eyeshadow and eyeliner brush in one. Oh and this palette, which is called Cool Party Palette, is Limited Edition, so if you want it, you better pounce on it!

UPDATE: I purchased this product. I was unable to open the palette. No one in my family was. I brought it to the store, and the sales associate was talking to me as if I was a child, because at 25, I don't know how to open an eyeshadow palette. I returned it, and because of her actions I will never again buy anything Bobbi Brown.

Jazz it up!!!

One of my favorite things are cheapy fun necklaces. I am more of a silver girl, but that is just me. I think you can throw on a fun long necklace, and no matter how boring the outfit was before, it looks so much more put together!! I also prefer to get cheaper fun long necklaces, and then go to Tiffany or David Yurman for my classic stylish pieces. I also love to wear one of my T &Co or David shorter necklaces, with a longer cheapy forever 21 necklace for a cool fun layer effect. Necklaces are a great way to spruce up your oufit and make it current for the season. You can def get carried away at Forever 21, because I mean come on, a necklace is like 6 bucks! Awesome! If you wear it once or it breaks who cares!! Tonight...I got carried away! Def spent $70 on fun neckalces, whatever! These are some of the fab pieces I bought.

Who doesn't love a Robot with a Tutu? Def ordered it!

Ordered this also, heart outline. Reminds me of Marc Jacobs
Another heart outline. I have one similar already, so I didn't buy this one.

If this came in silver, it would have been mine already. Oh shucks!
Star necklace, every other star has bling....oh so fab!

Love love love this bib necklace, if only I could rock them.

All pieces are from Forever 21.

I cannot contain my excitement!!!

As you (may) know, my parents are members of the Disney Vacation Club, its a timeshare Disney style! Well I am a member too now, thanks mom and dad! My best friend and I just booked a trip to go in December, not only am I stoked because its a girls trip (never done Disney without the 'rents before) but also because we are going to see the Osborne lights!!! In all the years I have been going to Disney, and yes, I have pictures of when I was there in a stroller with my brother, parents and my nanny, so I have been a lot, I have NEVER seen these lights. I am so stoked!! Also, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas party will be going on, never been to that before either!!! I'm in!!! Oh and there were no studio rooms left, so we had to get a one bedroom, aw shucks all 800 sq ft of our hotel room will be ours to mess up! Ahhh the excitement is killing me!! I already told my friend to be prepared for daily disney texts! We aren't sure if the rest of the girls are joining us or not, but either way, even if it is only us 2, it will be a memorable time! woo hoo!!

A new fav accessory

By default, I ended up with this new bracelet called cPrime. It is similar to the power balance bracelet, but better!!! According to the company website, "the technology inside cPRIME consists of a patent
pending antenna array that is designed to absorb, redirect, and balance the electromagnetic energy around the human body.When the electromagnetic field is in proper balance, it supports the functioning of every system in the body. When the field is out of balance, the body cannot function at peak levels. cPRIME is designed to restore balance, enabling peak performance and a subsequent improvement in overall well-being."

The bracelet is equipped with a chip that alters the way your body interacts with the electromagnetic environment around you, which may help to increase your strength, balance, flexibility and endurance. I know what you guys are thinking, and I'm not nuts! Today, is only my second day wearing it, and I cannot believe the amount of energy I had both days. That is the only difference so far I have seen. Def less yawning also. I will update to let you know if I experience anything else, like the vivid dreams that people say they experience. You are supposed to wear the bracelet everyday, yes that includes sleeping and showering. I love all the fun colors they come in, unfortunately, my brother order the one I have for himself, but his wrist is well, just too large for the M/L size, so I have boring black! A bunch of celebs wear them like A.Rod, Gary LeVox from Rascal Flatts, and some basketball players from the Dallas Mavericks and the Orlando Magic.

Let me know if you have any questions!

These are a few examples of the Burn Band, that is what I have.

Violet/Black Burn Band

Red/Black Burn Band

White/Frost Burn Band

These are the Neo bands.

Bright Orange/White/Stainless

Ice Blue/Frost/Stainless Steel

Black/Ice Blue/Stainless Steel Slide Buckle

Garnett/Black/Matte Black

Have you seen the new holiday collection for OPI??? I know, you are thinking I am nuts, it is only September, what am I doing talking about the Holidays! Growing up, I watched the muppets, but I always thought it was strange you heard there teacher's voice, but never saw her. Man I wish I could remember their teacher's name. Anyone??? OPI has paired up with the Muppets for a bunch of fab colors. The collection will be released in November and comes out just in time to promote the Muppets fourth movie. Supposedly the glitter polishes make it a 3D effect, how cool is that?!

You know me and my Mascara!

You guys know, I am always on the hunt for the next best mascara. I'm always searching, and always have at least 4 on hand in my drawer at all times. I change it up on a daily basis! I'm sick, I know! So I came across this mascara on Sephora's website, and I just had to share! It makes me want to go run and get it today! Not sure how the mascara formula is, but man this brush is cool!! It's similar to Mac's Haute and Naughty mascara, where it is like two brushes in one. EXCEPT! This one, cranks up or down. As you can see in the picture below, by cranking the top, the bristles on the brush get closer together or father apart depending on what you want. Love this idea! You can use it on the tighter setting for day events, and then crank it apart to pump up the volume for a night on the town. What do you think???
