Sigma Paris Makeup Palette

Image
I'm back and this time with the review on the Sigma  Paris Palette, I know I'm late; I just really wanted to try it and give my honest opinion of the palette. There are two reasons why I purchased this item; one, because I love Paris and I want to go there one day and two, because I really enjoy watching DulceCandy87. The colors are very nice, but I feel that they are only good to be worn at night because they are so dark and have a lot of glitter. I was disappointed because I was expecting more of matte colors that I could use during the day. I feel like I spent so much money that I wanted to be able to use the palette but I can't because I don't like all the glitter. I don't like that the whole palette is with glitter, I wish there were matte eyeshadows  in the palette. I do love the colors for the face, you can look at them in the second picture. The top color is name Rouge, i use this to contour my face and it works great, the second color is called Peche and I…

Banana Pancakes Recipe from Blogilates

Image
Hi beauties I have this amazing recipe; if you like pancakes or bananas, you should try it. Thank you to Cassey from Blogilates, the amazing instructor for this recipe. All you will need is 2 eggs and 1 banana. You will then mix everything together; make sure the banana is squished throughly. Then just throw them on a pan that has been sprayed with non stick cooking spray. With these pancakes you will not need syrup because they are all ready plenty sweet due to the banana. Make them small, don't make a big one because it will not taste as good, it will be hard to flip making it easy to burn. I made them and it tasted amazing, it's easy and delicious. I cooked three pieces of Turkey Bacon to go with it. Are you ready? Let's get cooking!!! :)

The Great Gatsby

Hi beauties do you remember my previous post about my books to read list? I just recently finished a book on that list. The book is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. At first I was a little lost because I was not sure from who's point of view the book was being written; I thought it was Gatsby's but it wasn't, it's his neighbor. Also, I had to find a list of the characters and who they are because sometimes the author would either use first or last names and that confused me. Overall I enjoyed the book, it was amazing, I highly recommended it if you haven't read it yet. Now I can't wait for the movie to come out this Christmas, I'm really looking forward to it. From the previews I watched it will be fairly close to the book; though it will be in 3D. Are you looking forward to the movie? Tell me what you think of the book.
Take Care!

Tuna Salad

Image
Hi beauties, I want to show this food I've been really enjoying. It's very easy to make; all you need is a can of tuna, a bag of spring mix salad, ranch(or any dressing you like), and croutons. All I do is drain the tuna, set the spring mix on my plate, put the tuna on top, add some ranch, and lastly the croutons.Voila! You have a great tasting salad. I hope you try it, let me know if you like it. 
Have you tried Blogilates yet? What are you waiting for? Go over there and do some workouts that are going to make you feel great. I've been doing different workouts from there for a whole month and it has helped me improve my running, I've finally reached my two mile goal. Have a great day! Dale! 











ModCloth

Hi beauties have you visited the ModCloth online store. I have to admit this store has so many cute clothes, accessories, shoes, and apartment. I would love to shop there, but everything is so expensive. The main reason I wanted to talk about this website is because they have clothes very similar to the television show Mad Men on ABC. The show is about advertising in the 60s, it is slightly boring sense there is very little in the way of action, but it is well written and intriguing. I like watching it because of the fashion. I love the style of the 1960's. I love this store, sadly I have not had the pleasure of buying any of their products, but I certainly love what they have to sell.

Check the website out and if you buy anything leave a picture down below, I'm sure you will fall in love with so many things, like I did :)

It was nice having you, come back

Skin Routine

Image
Alright guys I'm so tired of these pimples on this one spot on my face. I've had them for three months and they don't seem to go away; instead more pimples keep appearing. I don't know what to do. I've been using different products and I don't see any change. Down below I will post pictures of my skin routine. I have extremely oily skin, and I'm pretty sure the products in my routine are not helping me control the oil or the acne. I use the Aveeno Clear Complexion, to remove my face makeup. Followed by the Chanel Exfoliator (just because it is expensive does not mean it works; not for me anyway). Then the Cranberry Toner, and finally the Equate Daily Moisturizer(it has sun block in it, so I don't use it at night). Now to be honest, these products don't work for me. I've been wanting to try the Clean & Clear products, I just haven't gotten around to purchasing them. Have you tried them? What products do you use and what products work for…

Nail Design

Image
Welcome back! Today I wanted to try out this nail design I came across while reading Seventeen Magazine, September issue. Do you have yours? It can be found on page 185 and is called bare necessity. The products Im using are L.A. Colors Base Coat top coat, Chelly #108 (is a nude color), and L.A. Color Art Decor in black.
To accomplish this look, you will start by applying your base coat and letting it dry. Followed by any nude color you may have, apply all over your nails; if necessary do a second coat. Now it is time for the fun part; outline the triangle at the base of your nail and then fill it in. Make sure to use a skinny brush. If your using the nail art, it already comes with the skinny brush, it worked great in making the triangle. Once you have the triangle on all of your nails, wait for them to dry, and apply your top coat. Voila! You are done!!!
If you give this look a try, leave a picture at the bottom, I would love to see them. Have fun!!!

Shampoo: Victoria Secret vs Dove

Have you worked out today? If you haven't you should head over to Blogilates on YouTube. Cassey the instructor is great and she will have you working hard. So go check her out and let me know what you think of her workouts. 

Hi I'm back with a new blog. This is going to be a review on a couple different shampoos I've used. I absolutely love the smell of the Victoria Secret So Sexy Shampoo, but I came to realize that the consistency of the shampoo is very thick and it does not feel good in my hair. When I would wash my hair, I felt like if I didn't, it felt oily. So I decided to try Dove shampoo, this shampoo is great: it smells amazing, it feels refreshing, and smooth on your hair. I can go three days without washing my hair and it still smells good, I could not do that with the Victoria Secret shampoo. Just because I don't wash my hair everyday doesn't mean Im a gross person, it's just better for my hair since it's so oily I need to let the oil out. 

Outfit of the Day

Image
This is the outfit I wore to church on Sunday. I have extremely straight hair, I've tried using curling iron's and they don't give me any curls. So what I do to get curls is foam rollers from Walmart. I wash my hair, put them on, sleep with them, and the next morning I have curls all over my hair :). I love using the rollers because I'm not using any heat on my hair; I know the process takes more time but it is worth it. What I love about this product is that it brings different sizes of rollers that offers you any size  curls. Do you use rollers? You should use these, they are great. Now for my outfit!
Blazer: Charlotte Russe
Tank top: Francesca's
Pencil skirt: Jc Penny

Necklae: Tiffany & Co.
