Taylor Swift Speak Now Tour Makeup Tutorial/Look!

     I am always being compared to Taylor Swift, which truthfully I cannot stand! I love her & am a huge fan, but I just don't like the idea of being compared to another human being, I want to be seen as my own self.

     Recently, I went to the Taylor Swift Speak now tour in Houston. She was incredible live, definitely blew me away. The whole time I was watching her I could not get over how much I adored her makeup! So much so, that I decided to try to recreate the look! :)

Hopefully you guys enjoy!

Above is a close up photo taken of the look, I am completly in love with it. I love natural/neutral eye looks & love glitter-why have I not thought to use both together before?! <3

Items used:
  1. Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner, I used the color "RSVP" as an all over lid color.
  2. Urban Decay Naked Palette, I used the color "naked" for a crease & outer corner color. 
  3. For the glitter all over the lid I used a Candy Glitter Eye Liner in the color "disco ball."
  4. For eyeliner I just used the Maybelline line stiletto, in a black color. (Not too fond of this liner).
  5. Mascara, on the upper lashes is Hard Candy's Lashaholic, & on the bottom lashes is Cover Girl's Natureluxe mascara (which I got at the concert :D <3)
  6. On my lips, which is hard to see, is a Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate. 

If you want to see how I achieved this look, check out my video below! <3

New Christmas Video!

FINALLYYYY, my what I got for Christmas/Things I bought myself video is up on my YouTube Channel! I had a great Christmas this year! Full of love & laughter & true gift giving. I spent my Christmas at my boyfriend Awsten's house this year, because my parents were out of town. Awsten's mom made me feel part of the family! She reminded me of the true meaning of Christmas. Not to sound cliche or anything, but she did! She took me into their home, made me feel a part of the family, she was so generous with me. She had gifts for me to open on Christmas morning with the rest of the family. It was sooo sweet! I also after Christmas bought myself numerous items (many on sale!!<3), my mom also bought me a few things before & after Christmas. Awsten was great at getting me things that I have been wanting for a while now!<3 I hope you guys all had a great Christmas & New Year! Good luck with your new year as well! <3

Recently, over this holiday break I have been catching up & having numerous marathons of one of my favorite shows! PRETTY LITTLE LIARS! <3 If any of you have watched it (which I'm sure a lot of you have) you know how addicting this show is. 

Last season I missed a lot of episodes because of work and school & my ever-growing busy-ness! I had a blast catching up with the season. The show has matured & progressed a lot. I definitely recommend it to anyone who is curious about it & has yet to watch it! Just be warned that in every episode so much happens & a new piece of the puzzle is revealed, it would be best to watch the series from episode 1!

I took this picture of my boyfriend Awsten while we were watching PLL. It was so cute, he was getting all into the episodes, trying to guess what was going on or what was going to happen next. Haha, but he wouldn't admit that he was into the show :P

First Outfit of the Day picture for 2012!

                              Currently, I am totally IN LOVE with everything in this picture. 

  • The shirt (which I know isn't shown much) is from the store Cotton On (I wasn't able to locate it on the site, but they have a lot of other really cute items!) It is a loose fitting black shirt around the torso and chest, but tight on the arms. It is totally comfortable. 

  • My nail polish is from Orly, I bought it at Ulta. The name escapes me right now. It is pretty much a lime green matte looking polish. Totally an eye grabber.

  • The bracelet is from Juicy Couture. I absolutely love it. My employer got it for me for christmas. its definitely an everyday type of bracelet, but could also be worn on special occasions. 

  • ANDD last but certainly not least! My shoes. I LOVE these shoes. Best purchase I have made in quite some time. I got these at Dillards (a store that I never walk into). I was very surprised to see that they had such cute shoes. I love bows and love the look of these. Very balet-esque. So incredibly comfy as well. They can be dressed up or down. :) I believe the brand was called Big Buddha. 

I'm new to this.

So I decided that I may start a blog. Not necessarily just for my YouTube account & just about makeup and fashion. But also as a way for you guys to get to know me, & perhaps connect with me on a different level :) this will take some time getting used to, for sureeee.
