Fab Finds - Cherry Blossom Lashes;

Hi guys!
Today I have another Fab Find.
I`m not a lash girl or expert, but every now & then I think they are fun to play around with.
I saw Rai`s post + video where she hauled these lashes & wanted to try them out.
These Cherry Blossom lashes are the same lashes as Red Cherry, but WAY cheaper.
I couldn`t find these @ my usual Beauty Supply Stores[BSS], so I thought I`d never find them.
Luckily when my sister visited the BSS in Greenville, NC, I found them!
&I found these babies for only $1.29 each!
I was in lash heaven & did know which to choose.
I decided to choose some natural & some bold.

As you can see, I went with the #68, #12, #ZOBATH, #C41. I`m most excited to try out the #68 & #C41 lashes. I`ve always wanted to try criss cross lashes, so to find these, I was SUPER ecstatic! I am definately going to have TONS of fun playing around with these babies!

Have you guys tried these lashes?
Also, would you be interested in winning some of these in the future?

Thanks for reading!
I`ll be sure to post some FOTDs when I try these out.

FOTD; Christmas Edition*

Feliz Navidad!
Hope you guys are enjoying your Christmas.
I decided to do a bronze-y gold & burgundy eye look today.
Hope you ladies enjoy!




For the eyes I used ELF Tone Correcting Concealer in Honey for a base. The shadows I used all came from my SedonaLace 88 Metal Palette[I can tell this will be my favorite palette for a while!]. I used the Sephora Liquid Eyeliner in Black for my top liner &for my lower lashline Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide One Pencil in Underground. I also used my current favorite mascara, Maybelline`s Great Lash LOL[Lots of Lashes] Mascara.
For my lips I used Maybelline`s Baby Lips in Quenched to moisturize. As my lipstick I used ELF`s Fantasy Lipstick[from the $1 line]. To top off the lip I used Revlon`s Colorburst Lipgloss in Peony.
On my cheeks I used Milani`s Baked Blush in Corallina & topped my face off with my MAC Studio Fix Powder in C8.

I hope you guys enjoyed my FOTD & have an excellent Christmas!
I`m off to continue my NBA marathon.
:P

Sedona Lace Black Friday Haul;

Good evening ladies!
I know you guys are probably tired of hauls. Lol.
But this should be one of my last ones for a good little while.
I purchased from Sedona Lace on Black Friday.
They had some palettes for $8.95 & 25% off everything else.
I picked up a palette I have been dying to try & a few brushes.
Continue reading to see what I got.

The brushes came in a nice pink bag.
I picked up the 88 Metal Palette. After seeing Ashley post a FOTD on Twitter, I knew I had to have this eventually. Luckily, my waiting paid off & I got this palette for only $8.95! Such a steal, as this palette is normally $22.95 on their site!

I also picked up the EB15 & the LB23. They sent me a EB13 free, they include this brush free with every order if I`m not mistaken. The EB15 is a Pointed Crease Brush. Originally $8.95. The LB23 is a Capped Lip Brush. It cost $1.95 & is originally $8.95.
Here is a closeup of the brushes.
LB23, EB15, EB13.
I am super excited to use my 88 metal palette. I`m sooo happy that I waited for a major sale to buy this. I wasn`t going to buy the brushes, but the lip brush was only $2, so I figured why not. I don`t own a pointed crease brush, so I thought I would pick one up. Super excited to try out all of my goodies!

Sedona Lace has to be one of my favorite companies to order from. Great customer service, prompt shipping, & TONS of great deals during the year. Be sure to check out Sedona Lace & sign up for their newsletters. They always have pretty good deals on their brushes, palettes, & more.

Have you ladies heard of Sedona Lace?
Have you tried any of their products?
Thanks so much for reading.

Dallas CCO Haul;

Morning!
So on my road trip I knew I had to visit some CCOs.
Houston didn`t have anything that I wanted.
& Dallas wasn`t too impressive either.
However, I did pick up 3 things from the Dallas CCO.

So here`s what I picked up;
I picked up the Flirt! Flirtatious! Perfume for $12.
The sales lady tried to lie & say this particular size costs $40 in Kohls, when clearly on the back it said $14 under their CCO price sticker...
But it smelled fruity, which I like, so I bought it anyways.
I also got a Kissable Lipcolor from MAC in the shade Temper Tantra.
My third item is a MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Goes and Goes.
Swatches;
I was ecstatic to see the Kissable Lipcolor. I missed out on these & was happy to see them in the CCO. I bought last one in this shade. :D I thought it would be a great color for WOC. &Y`all know when I saw Goes & Goes I had to get that. I loooove a purple lip. They also had Go For It, which I should have gotten, but I didn`t. :/

I am very happy with my purchases.
At my local CCO, we never have anything.
I always just pick up a shadow or two to add to my collection.

Have you guys found any great deals or steals lately @ your CCOs?
Thanks for reading.

How I Achieve Beachy Waves[Without Heat];

Hi guys.
Back when I was growing out my relaxers, one of my favorite styles to do were bantu knots.
Bantu knots are a way of curling your hair without heat.
I wanted to share with you all the technique that I used & still use when I straighten my hair.
Hope you enjoy the video.

Fab Finds - Big Lots;

Hey guys!
I wanted to start a new segment on my blog called Fab Finds.
Basically I will be sharing my cheap finds from discount stores such as Big Lots, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, ect.
Today, all of my items are from Big Lots.
I can NEVER find anything at my local Big Lots, but luckily I was able to find a few things my last few visits!

I found this lipgloss set from Black Radiance.
It includes four radiant lip glosses & one illusion lip gloss.
Best of all, it was only $4.50.
I`m not sure how much they each retail for, but for this price I could not pass this set up!
Closer look at the glosses;
Below are the swatches. As you can see, the purple, gold, & orange are pretty opaque. They are all shimmery except the illusion gloss. The name "illusion lip gloss" is definitely perfect for this product, as there is no pigmentation at all[Its the second to last gloss].

I found two Covergirl polishes for only $.50.
These are pretty opaque, so I will probably give them away.

This is a Covergirl Trucheek blush set.
I couldn`t pass this up for only $1!
I found these three brushes.
The eyeshadow brush was $1.50 & the blush brushes were $.80 each.
Such a steal for the blush brushes!
Lastly, I found a Conair Roller Set Kit for only $4!
These kits are about $8 at my local Walmart last I checked.

I`m very happy with my finds. Although the polishes were rather disappointing.
I can`t wait to continue this new segment on my blog.
Who knows, I may even find some items to giveaway.
;]


Have you guys had any Fab Finds lately?
Please do share!
Thanks so much for reading.

Mini Black Friday Haul - Coastal Scents;

Hi guys!
Long time no blog.
I am back from my lovely vacation! &I came home to a few packages.
So, I decided to first share my Coastal Scents haul.
They were having 50% off & I initially was not going to purchase anything.
But I did see a brush set & figured I would pick that & some pans for pressing shadows.
I also got a free blush sample.
Here is the case;
I picked up the 22 piece brush set for only around $17! Such a STEAL!
Here are some views of the brushes;



Can`t wait to try these babies out!
I had never ordered from CS before, so I was not sure what to expect. However, I am pleased to report that I am SUPER happy with their shipping. They packaged everything nicely & I think they sent this out within about 2 days of me ordering. I would definitely recommend purchasing from this site & will do so myself in the future!

So, did any of you ladies purchase anything from Coastal Scents on Black Friday?
If so, what`d you pick up?

Thanks for reading.
&Look for another giveaway soon.
