Best product ever!

I am such a product junkie, and when I find one that I like, well I stick to it like glue. About a month ago, I went to a makeup class at Mac, and got a bunch of face makeup. Honestly though, who has time every morning to wash your face, moisturize, put on the primer, put on the foundation, the concealer, then the highlighter, then the powder, then the blush? And that's just for your face, not including any eye or lip makeup...yuck!! So yes, I purchased a new face primer, and a highlighter, and a new blush. The foundation and concealer I already owned.

I bought this new primer that we used in class, and it is also tinted in four different shades for different issues a person might have. I got it in neutralize because I have what I call natural blush, its redness, mostly in my cheeks. When I drink, holy hell the redness gets wayyy worse, almost like a sunburn. Back to the product, its a primer/skin enhancer, and I can't stop raving about it. It kind of reminds me of a tinted moisturizer, with thin coverage, but I put it on, and don't even put foundation over it. I have good skin, so I don't need foundation, the redness just annoys me, so I put this on, then put powder over it, and then blush and my skin looks amazing minus the red of course. Here is the product if anyone is interested. Oh and I forgot to mention, it also contains SPF...score! One more thing, this week, my mom got her botox done, and she had some bruising under the skin, I put this on her face under her foundation, and you could hardly see the bruises. Seriously amazing!!!

 Prep + Prime Fortified Skin Enhancer SPF 35

These are the 4 tints....Illuminate, Neutralize, Adjust, and Recharge

This is the Mac website's description:

Another OPI collabo

Nicki Minaj for OPI, will hit shelves this January. I am not a fan of Nicki, and when I saw her this summer open for Brit Brit, well awful was too nice of a word for her act. I will say she does push the envelope with fashion, and she is always confident no matter how wacky the get up. I mean, the mask was a little much, but usually there is some aspect of her outfit I like. Anyway, here are the six colors...1 shatter of course, a neat color too! Her collection includes "Pink Friday", which is a shimmering pink polish with blue and yellow accents, "Metal 4 Life," which is a chunky silver glitter polish, "Save Me," which has long, thin silvery rainbow glitter pieces, "Fly," which is a solid bright aqua hue, "Did It On 'Em," which is a neon lime color, and "Super Bass," which is a shimmery purple crackle topcoat.

I love the 2nd one, Pink Friday and the third one, Save me.

Gallery Wall

Hope you guys don't mind the shift in gears to a home post today. It's a nice change to do a home decor post. I might be a bit late on this trend, but I love it! I think it is a great day to display your favorite (old and new) photos. I never really had a wall that I would be able to utilize to do this, but since moving a tall and wide piece of furniture in the living room, now I do!

There are two problem with this gallery wall, and could use a little help. There is no black or dark colors in the room, so I was thinking of white and cream colored frames, only issue is, my wall is a light yellow...not sure how the lighter frames will look on that.
Second issue, well this is a stumper! My father, recently (in the past 2 years) lost 135 lbs!!! I know, what a huge accomplishment dad! That being said, he hates to see pictures of the "fat" him. So I need to choose wisely, but I also want to include some pictures from vacations and such when my brother and I were younger. I don't know how he will take to "fat" pictures of him being on display in our living/dining room.
I wanted to do this as a surprise for my parents when they are going away one weekend, however, thinking about it, I don't want to do it, and choose pictures he is not comfortable with displaying.

These are some images of gallery walls that I absolutely love!!! I also love the different shapes of the frames. I am on the hunt for some cool oval frames.

This one is by far my fav!

I love how the & sign is used....maybe I can incorporate a R somehow.

I can't wait, this is the first time, my whole family and I have been to disney since 2000!! Yes, this is a last minute trip, and yes, I am also going in December with my friends, what can I say, Mickey is my best bud, and I miss him.

How awesome are these pictures of the lovely Kim K in Harper's Bazaar Arabia! I love stars and hearts! I think the details in the styling are amazing. Everything from the dress to the earring to the cuff has stars. Love it!

In awe

I have been a fan of Louis Vuitton for as long as I can remember. When it comes to bags, to me, their is no other. Yes, I have Fendi's, Gucci's and Balenciaga's, but to me, no ones craftsmanship, and quality compare to the Louis. I was in awe when I saw these pictures of the Spring/Summer '12 Fashion show. I mean come on, who has a carousel on the runway?? So chic in all white must I add.

Kate, close your mouth!! Dress is to die for!

How amaze is that umbrella? I also love to ombre look, with the feathers, if only it was pink and not yellow.

I have always been a fan of polka dots! Love the statement buttons.

The off the shoulder and the cut, and the sheer on the sides, total awesomeness!

A little boring, but I love the collar, and the patten on the skirt. Might I add it is the perfect shade of pink!

Mac Glitter and Ice

You better believe it that I have my calendar marked for October 22, and a list of products ready to go. I am so in love with this collection. The colors are so amazing, and that sleek white packaging is amaze! Don't get me wrong the black packaging is great and all, but the white is modern and cool. So apparently this is a "holiday" collection which is fine and all, but then why the heck launch it in October??? Thats over two months away from Christmas! Insane.

Love the color in the middle....it will be mine!
