Gift Time!!!

This year for Christmas, my parents told me, I had already gotten my gift, and I was getting nothing. I knew that wasn't the case, I would still get little things, but I was BLOWN AWAY! Just before I left for Disney, my parents said not to worry about paying them for the plane and the meal plan for my trip, that they would pay. Ummm SCORE! So with that in mind, I knew I would be getting little things. Also, the day I left for Disney, my brother surprised me with a new digital camera, how lucky am I?!
Fast Forward to Christmas morning, yes my brother had 18 presents, but I was fine with it. I had a bunch, mostly little boxes, and like 2 clothing boxes.

This is what I got:


Love the color!!!!

I love this necklace, and the pink stones around the edge.

Something that was on my wish list for a long time!

Def will get use out of this...the whole shirt has sequins, with more at the bottom, hard to see.

And of course I got gift cards galore! Can't wait to shop!

typical Jersey

I just want to start off by saying, not everyone in Jersey is like how the cast of Jerseylicious is. Maybe a small percentage is, but def not most people. However, being from Jersey, we def stick out, and we have our own sense of style and we really don't care if you like it or not.
That being said, I am a smokey eye and nude lip kind of girl. Typical Jersey, I know!! I use black (carbon by mac, le duh! ) maybe like 6 out of 7 days a week when doing my eye makeup. Now, that doesn't mean that I have black all over my lid and from lash line to brows! Def not! I put a lighter color, almost nude on my lid, and then use carbon in my crease to make my eyes pop, then blend the crap out of it! When I am done, you can't even tell its totally black, it takes on more a greyish tone from blending.
However, a night time look....well the blacker the better! That's jersey style! I usually use dreamy from lorac and carbon from mac mixed in with a little bit of either contrast or silver ring, both from mac. When going out, I always put more make up on then I think I need because being in a club or bar, you get so hot, it moves, it comes off,so to me, its better to start off with more, then to fix it and add more in the gross bathroom.

Here are some looks I have come across that just scream me!


I always love a defined brow, but define and dramatic are two different things!! This one is way too harsh, but the eyes are amaze!

This is like what I do on a daily basis, minus extending the eye.

Another look I love!
Makeup...flawless! Nude lip and smokey eye obsessed!

You can also do smokey with different colors, I just always go for dark ones.
Nude smokey eye

Ahh perfect nude lip! That's always my hunt!
nude lip

Again, amaze!
nude that lip

Love the contrast, and how dark the eye is, and its balanced with the rest of the colors on the face.
