The Beauty Buffs: Nautical/Beach

Hello and welcome to my home!

Today is a special day because it it a Beauty Buffs Wednesday and today's theme is beach/nautical. Around the blog you have seen both beach and nautical looks, I love them both! However, I picked up a summer dress on clearance last winter that I have been dying to wear, and this was the perfect occasion!

Physician's Formula Haul

Hello...

I feel like followers of my blog need a catchy name, like Lady Gaga's Little Monsters, or Katy Perry's Katycats. Clawsers...Uppers? Haha that's terrible, I'll keep thinking. Let me know what you think it should be!

Back in the beginning of July, I spent the 4th weekend in Atlantic City, NJ. Silly me, when I was getting all made up for the drive over, I totally forgot my makeup bag at home! It wasn't until we stopped for dinner in Baltimore that it hit me I was totally makeup-less! And for me, that was a major crisis.

I knew I had to take the plunge, and the next morning I went to CVS to restock with the bare essentials. If you follow me on Facebook, you would know that I made the decision to only buy cruelty free makeup and nail polish. Well that made it super hard when going to buy makeup at a drug store, since almost all drug store brands test on animals. Luckily, CVS carries Physicians Formula which is cruelty free. Yay! They were also having a buy 2, get 1 free sale, so after about 30 minutes of deciding, I picked 6 products I felt were essential to have.

Born Pretty Store Review: Round Neon Glitter

The products in this post were provided for my honest review. I was not compensated for my opinions.

I know that its weird, but Tuesday has always been my favorite day of the week. I Like that its productive, it makes the day go by faster :) I hope you are all doing well on this fine Tuesday.

Today I have my second Born Pretty Store review to share! I was so excited when I received these 1mm-2mm Mixed Nail Art Glitter Decoration Colorful Mini Round Thin Paillette Design glitters. Boy, that's a mouthful! I'll just call them Round Neon Glitter. 

The container came filled with neon circle glitters in two different sizes. There were eight colors in total, though a lot of them were a variation of pink. One container costs $4.36 and its comes with more glitters than you could know what to do with! I love how neons pop over a white base, so I decided to try these out in a rainbow gradient over a white polish.

The Beauty Buffs: Floral + Born Pretty Store Review

The products in this post were provided for my honest review. I was not compensated for my opinions.

Hello everyone! Sorry for my little hiccup in posting.  Hopefully what I have planned for today will make up for it :)

First, today is another The Beauty Buffs Wednesday, and our theme is floral.  I am not the biggest fan of floral clothes, I'm more of an animal print girl myself. But I just love floral nails. They are simple to do, but can create beautiful results. However, for my floral look, I have something a little special!

My First Time with Acrylics...sorta

Hello everyone! How was your 4th of July? Mine was super rainy, but I was happy I still got my beach day on Saturday. But now I'm back to the daily grind. I actually have a day-long meeting at work today. This is my first one so I am excited to see what it entails.

As you know, my nails don't like me. No matter what I try, they are always breaking. My grandma also dealt with this disability, but then I remembered my mom. She has had acrylics on her nails since before I was born. I remember being a kid looking at her nails and asking if they were fake, and she always said no. For a while this really confused me, until I realized that she had acrylics over her natural nails, and she didn't have false ones under. What a brilliant idea! I hate fake nails, but I could put acrylics on my natural nails to prevent them from breaking.

That meant a trip to CVS...

A 4th at the Beach

Hello and happy 4th of July! What do you have planned for the holiday? Last year I spent Independence Day on the capitol lawn for the Capitol 4th concert. I was worried that that might have been my last 4th, since my old job made me work on holidays. Just in the nick of time, I got a new job, and now I have a whole long weekend! Ben and I are spending today at the Jersey Shore, hanging around the beach, walking the boardwalk, and watching the fireworks. I am so excited about our 4th of July plans that I needed some nails to match!

The Beauty Buffs: Polka Dots

Hello everyone! It's time for another Beauty Buffs post and this one is about polka dots! I think polka dots are so fun. They are so versatile! There are endless possibilities from perfect ones all in a row, to different sizes, and of course millions of color combos. Since I did nail art for my stripe look, and I don't have any polka dot clothes, so I thought I would try out some makeup art! I love to play around with fun makeup designs, but I have never done polka dots. I have done dotticures a few times, so I wanted to do something new :)
