Halloween 2011: Lashes

I was so excited when I found these lashes at Ulta! How nifty are they? I don't wear crazy lashes, I usually opt for the normal ones. But I really got excited about them. They are absolutely gorgeous and dramatic. Unfortunately, they are flimsy and way too big. I would never wear them out and I got as far as 2 hours wearing them. It;s a no-go. Sad panda!

NOTD: Wet 'n Wild's Private Viewing + Party of 5 Glitters

I'm a firm believer in multiple brands, high and low end. 
Sometimes we have winners and sometimes we have losers. Today...we have a winner.

I also lean towards the brighter, dramatic colors. But Wet 'n Wild have a few cream colors are subtle and dreamy, I snatched them up. I did have a problem with how long it took to dry. Which is why after 10minutes I had some flaws.

Brand: Wet 'n Wild
Name: Private Viewing
Color: creamy pastel pink
Price: $1.99
Rating: B

The glitter didn't do anything for me. It took 4 coats, and it didn't cover nearly enough. FAIL.

Brand: Wet 'n Wild
Name: Party of 5's Glitter
Coats: 4
Color: confetti glitter
Price: $1.99

OOTD: Baby Shower

A couple weeks ago, I went to a baby shower for my cousin. I would say my first baby shower, but....yeah. The first one I went to where I didn't want to drown myself in insipid people. ha! It was at a cute, upper scale restaurant in the Bucktown area in Chicago. If I was going to a baby shower, than I was dressy spring-ish. Nevermind the fact it was September. The dress I've only worn once (on my cruise) and I just wanted a reason to wear my tights! :)

Have you noticed how blonde I am??????? Literally....

Dress: Target $22
Sweater: Forever 21 $15
Tights: Torrid $16
Necklace: Ebay $10
Hair clips: Forever 21 $3

NOTD: Color Club in Sexy Siren

Say hello to my first purchase of Color Club. I knew of Color Club for a year to two now, but didn't know too much about it or have the urge to make a purchase. The first time I used them was when I got my nails filled in a month ago. They retail at $3 (where I found them online) and I fell in lust! I have a feeling you'll be seeing more of this wondrous brand.
