Apologies

So apparently the last few blog posts I posted are gone :( I had to delete them for now. I've been uploading my posts from my phone since my MacBook is broken. I guess Brendan (my son) deleted my blog pics album from my phone and I think it ended up deleting them from my blogs. My older blogs still have their pics but the most recent ones (uploaded from my iPhone 4s), aren't loading. So...I will redo the reviews sometime :/

Review: Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick Collection

While I was at CVS a week or so ago, I noticed Rimmel had come out with some lipsticks from Kate Moss. The display was quite small and I only saw a few color choices. Five, to be exact! In reality, there are supposed to be seven shades. The color I chose was shade 14, which is on the nude/taupe side. I always gravitate toward nude colors but this wasn't the average light, pinky nude. It's actually a tad bit darker. All in all, I'm enjoying it and it's pretty moisturizing. Not super moisturizing like the Revlon Lip Butters but not as dry as most lipsticks are. I actually want to try some of the other colors and step outside of my comfort zone. I hope you enjoy the swatches below. Please excuse my dry lips :(




Cute black, plastic lipstick with Kate's signature in red




Number 14 nude/taupe lipstick

Pros:
•Affordable (I believe it's $6-$7)
•Moisturizing
•No weird smell
Cons:
•Small color range
•Most colors are too bright/bold, especially if you tend to wear nudes
•Lipstick seems to settle into lines of lips so make sure your lips are fairly moisturized
•Only sold at certain drug stores
•No names for lipsticks, just numbers
•Isn't long lasting

Review: Adore Me Lingerie Ellie bra/panty

A while back, I was contacted by a company called Adore Me If you're not quite familiar with it, it's a monthly subscription-based membership that offers a variety of lingerie, camisoles, and hosiery for purchase. You sign up and answer a few style questions. From your answers, your showroom is created. The showroom gives you many different options to choose from. Don't like what your showroom offers? That's okay because you're not obligated to buy anything. In fact, you can click and see what didn't make your showroom and choose something else. This site is like Jewel Mint, Style Mint, etc. Adore Me asked if I'd like to write about their company. In return, I got a code which allowed me to pick out any set I wanted. I placed my order and received it 6 days later. It probably would've been sooner but it shipped about a day or two before the Christmas holiday. Anywhooo, I picked the Ellie Bra and panty set. When I unwrapped the plastic envelope, I noticed the beat up box.




Don't you love how the postal system throws stuff around? I really wasn't upset, as it's lingerie and unbreakable. Plus, it wasn't the company's fault, you know? Inside the box, there was a little card and the lingerie was nicely wrapped in pink tissue paper.








Below the layers of pink tissue paper was my bra and panty.












How cute, right? The bra is black and has some lacy detail and the panty is black, lacy, and see through - very sexy, if you ask me. I tried the set on and was very impressed by the quality. The pieces were beautifully sewn together. I checked to see if any stitches were loose, which was not the case. The set fit like a glove on me :) The best part is, each set you pick out is $39.95! Honestly, the lingerie is cute and affordable. Of course this is lingerie, so it's not the place to go if you're looking for pushup bra to double your cup size. This is a site for women who'd like to take a little bit of time to get sexy for their significant other or themselves. Who says you need someone to look good for? One thing I really liked about this site was that they had babydolls and slips, which is perfect for women who prefer to be more covered up. All in all, I am happy with the piece I chose. Please be sure to check out my previous post here if you haven't read it. If you'd like to check out Adore Me's website, click here to sign up and get started. You can also check out their Facebook page for promo codes. Click here to enjoy the deals. You can get 50% off at checkout with code FB50.

Finger painting

This is what happened to my brand new Urban Decay 15th Anniversary palette when my 16-month-old got his hands on it.


I died a little on the inside, trust me. Buuuuuttttttt, at the end of the day, he's my heart and soul and I can laugh about it.

Adore Me - Personalized lingerie


Hi, everyone. I just wanted to post about a fairly new, up-and-coming lingerie company called Adore Me. If you've never heard of it, it's a subscription-based membership where you take a quiz and for the price of $39.95 (per set), you are sent a set of lingerie or hosiery of your choice. It's pretty similar to Jewel Mint and Style Mint in the sense that everything in your showroom is put together based off your style quiz. After you answer the quiz, your showroom appears and you are shown an array of sexy lingerie, hosiery, and even slips/baby doll sets. Don't like what you see? That's okay because you're not obligated to buy anything in your showroom and can also see different styles that weren't included in your showroom. I think this is an awesome idea because lingerie costs so much and ONE piece (like a bra) already costs more than $39.95! So buying a set from Adore me is relatively cheaper and is actually a steal! I also like how the lingerie caters to all women. It's not just over-the-top sexy. There are pieces for woman who want to be more covered up, yet look sexy. I think the slips are perfect for that! Below are some of the styles in my showroom.







Aren't those cute? If you like Jewel Mint, you should sign up and give Adore Me a try. I mean, really, it doesn't get much better than $39.95 per set! Click on Adore Me to get started. Spoil yourself or your man :) You can also follow their
