November Ipsy Bag #MirrorMirrorMonday

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! I think I'm still full from my Tofurky lol!

Today I am going to be sharing with you what I got in my November Ipsy bag.


This months bag was out of this world! ;) It featured a beautiful galaxy pattern on the outside on the bag. Now for a peek inside.....


Here's a closer look.....


First up is this black liquid eyeliner from Absolute New York. I haven't tried this product out. I'm not a huge eye makeup person and liquid eyeliners are not really something I'm good at using lol! 


Next up this beautiful eye crayon from Beauté Basics in the color Sahara Gold. I love this eye crayon! It is such a beautiful soft gold color that adds just the perfect pop of color to your look. 


I love the way the gold reflects the light! Very candlelight inspired :)


I was so excited when I saw this Full Exposure mascara from Smashbox! As I've said in the past I LOVE mascara! The longer, bolder and fuller the better! This mascara does just that! I may have to purchase the full size :)



To continue with the eye theme, I received this C412 DLX crease brush. I have been using this with my Aerin Kalidolight palette I received in my Winter Glossybox! It's the perfect little brush!


Last but not least is this hairspray from Coolway. This product is cool in that it can be used on wet or dry hair! Spray it on damp hair and then dry and style and then lock it in by spraying it on dry hair as well. Pretty innovative! Plus it smells like mango!!

If you liked the things I received in my Ipsy bag and want to give Ipsy a try for yourself, use my link below! For $10 a month, you can't beat it ;)


Hope you all have a beautiful week!

Gobble Gobble #TastyTuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Today I am going to be sharing with you some Vegan/ Vegetarian options you can have this Holiday. I have been a Vegetarian for 10 years and when it comes to the Thanksgiving and Christmas, I do not want to miss out on all the yummy goodness these holidays have to offer. 

For Thanksgiving I always get the Tofurky Roast. I look forward to it every year! Whether I am having Thanksgiving at home or going to my relatives home, I make that and bring some slices with me. Everyone is usually eyes up my dish too lol! Here are some other options to try! I will let you know what other ones I find and try this year!

Vegetarian Plus Vegan Ham Roll | Gardein Stuffed Turk'y (they make a Holiday Roast as well!)

Holiday Limited Edition Glossybox #MirrorMirrorMonday

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!

I am so excited to share with you the Holiday Limited Edition Glossybox! To say that I am obsessed with this box is an understatement! This was not part of the regular monthly subscription. This was an extra box that you could purchase from Glossybox for $40. Mind you it is valued at over $190! You could see that from the moment you open the box!



How gorgeous is this!! Not to mention the colors are a perfect fit for my room! ;)


Now for a peek inside!


Amazing!! Here's a closer look.....


This Nuxe Dry Oil Huile Prodigieuse smells glorious! Not only is the bottle beautiful but the oil can be used everywhere from your hair to your toes! 



I am a HUGE fan of Trust Fund nail polish! I got the color Champagne Socialite. This color is absolutely gorgeous! If you could imagine dipping your fingers into some Vevue Cliquot Champagne and having your nails come out painted, this would be it!


This eyeliner from Ardency Inn slides on like butter! So luxurious!


This lip gloss from Pure Cosmetics is one of the BEST lip glosses I have ever gotten! I got the color Pouty Pink which is this beautiful nude pink color that compliments my lip color really well. But wait! This isn't any old lip gloss!


Not only does it have a mirror on it, wait for it.........


It has an LED light!!! How cool is that!! Now you don't have to rummage through your purse for a mirror and then try to find the right light to apply a fresh coat of gloss. I will definitely getting some more colors! (P.S. there are 20 more shades to choose from!)




Another win is this mascara from L'Atelier Maquillage. It has a keratin-protein base that helps to condition your lashes. Plus it gives you these beautiful feather like lashes! This is a french mascara product, I couldn't find a place to purchase it in english lol sorry!


Last but not least is this BEAUTIFUL Kaleidolight Palette from Aerin. This palette is exclusive to this box, I tried to find something comparable to it online and no luck. The product comes in its own soft pink protective case.


This palette retails for $70! This completely makes up for the $40 you had to spend for the box!


How gorgeous is this!!! This is a perfect all in one product. You can either take a brush and swirl it over the palette to highlight the entire face or you can use each color individually to add light and color to your eyes and cheeks.

Everything about this box is exquisite! I am so happy that I was lucky enough to get my hands on this  limited edition box. It was absolutely worth the money and then some!

May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor #FacialFriday

Happy Hunger Games....I mean Friday! ;)

I hope everyone's week went well!

In honor of the release of The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 2 movie today, I decided I would do my Blackberry PRIMROSE facial sheet mask (See what I did there ;) )
As I mentioned in Monday's Post I was going to be reviewing the facial sheet mask I received in my November Glossybox.

Let the Games begin.....


Before the sheet mask







I love doing these sheet masks because they are so quick and easy. All you have to do in unfold the mask and remove the protective covers, place and smooth the mask out and you're spa-ing it up ;)





Sit back and relax for the next 15-20 minutes and let the mask work its magic.



I rub the remaining product into my skin and then I'm all done.

After the mask :)


I really liked this mask! It had a nice smell to it but more importantly I could really see a difference in my skin after 20 minutes of having it on. My skin didn't look as dull and my skin felt more firmer and  plumper. I think I'm going to have to buy another one and try out a few of their different masks while I'm at it! 

Thank you all so much for stopping by! Let me know if any of you are going to see The Hunger Games this weekend and what you think of it!

I hope you all have a great weekend!
