New acrylics

Hey guys,

 I got my nails done with my fabulous friend Abby. I thought I would quickly share with you my new acrylics. They are in the color cascade cool by Essie. I love this color a ton. I can't wait to go buy it and add it to my collection.


BareMinerals Haul

BareMinerals was one of the main sponsors of Beautycon. They handed out samples and had a lot of ways to win full sized products. I got a bareMinerals starter kit with 2 eyeshadows, primer, mascara, lipgloss and a double ended brush. I also got 2 other lip glosses, 3 sample lip glosses, 1 lipstick, one full sized mascara and one sample mascara

DSD Mineral Skin Care Review

DSD is a trusted brand that has been around for over 30 years. They make many skin products. DSD products are formulated from a unique combination of 21 minerals only found in the lowest place on earth- in the springs of the Dead Sea. Today I will be reviewing the foot cream. It reduces cracking, soreness and softens hard dry skin. All you have to do is apply after bathing. I used this product for the first time and was very impressed. It worked almost instantly and made my feet feel very soft. The blisters on my foot from my shoes are looking better and I plan on using this product again. 



Rating 

9/10 
I wish the packaging was more appealing but otherwise great product.

My day at beautycon



I woke up at 7am to get ready for this highly anticipated event. I left my house at 8:30 and got to Hollywood at 9:15.  As we drove in front of Siren Studios my jaw dropped. We were 45 minutes early and there was already a line. I thought it ended at the end of the block but I thought wrong.  People were lined down four blocks 45 minutes before the event even started. And so the day began. We finally found our space in the line and waited. And waited. And waited. We waited for one and a half hours and had probably taken 30 steps. My dad, friend and I got impatient quickly listening to the high  school dating stories that the ladies in front of us were telling.   I searched the Internet and finally found VIP Beautycon badges for sale. Only 3 left! We quickly bought the passes and ran to the front of the line. 

Once we got in the doors and signed in, we eagerly got in the elevator and went up to the second floor.  

There were so many booths and new products. The event was sponsored by NYX, Stylehaul, YouTube, BareMinerals, Lush and others.  I had a great time visiting the tables and testing out the products. I met so many nice YouTubers such as Kandee Johnston

Krazy Ray Ray

Beautycon

Sorry I have been MIA for a while I have been busy counting down the minutes until beautycon. 

What is beautycon?

Beautycon in a beauty convention with YouTubers like Kandee Johnston, Andreas choice, Crazy Ray Ray and many more. Throughout the day they will be having lectures and panels. There will also be booths set up for companies to sell their products. I am beyond excited for the convention tomorrow. Check my blog tomorrow for updates on the event and visit beautycon.com for more info.

Binder Decorations

As the summer comes to an end, I have been getting my school supplies ready. The most important thing I need to stay organized are my binders. As I learned last year, almost everyone buys the same brand of binders from Staples. So to make mine unique, I decided to decorate them. This is super fun and easy. All you will need is


  • A binder
  • Pictures (I got mine off of tumblr)
  • Scissors
  • A glue stick or tape
  • Plain paper or paper with your subject 


1) Cut out all of your images. This might take a while depending on how carefully you cut them.



2) Take your pictures and glue them on to your base paper. I recommend laying out the images before you glue them just to make sure you like where you place them. 



3) Slip your new sheets into the front of your binder and you are done. I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial.  

Back to School

Yes, it's that time of year again.  The endless summer has come to an end.  I didn't realize until today that summer was over in 6 days! So, to brighten the mood, I went school supplies shopping. Believe it or not, this is my favorite thing about starting the school year. So I thought I would share my school supplies haul with you guys. 




As I was setting everything up for this picture I realized maybe I went a little overboard... Well this will last me the whole school year.
