MOTD Roundup

676

I did a few pretty simple makeup looks this past week, all of which only took me about 5-10 minutes on average. I actually ended up really liking how they turned out, so I thought I would do a quick photo roundup of the looks. I’ve posted them on my instagram, so if you follow me there, you may have already seen them. I used a lot of the same products for these also. Make sure you let me know which one is your favorite in the comments!

Neighbor Drama, Already!

669

If you’ve read my previous post, you know the exciting news about me buying my first home. I’m not moved in yet. Hell, I haven’t even gone to settlement yet. This is all supposed to occur next month. However, I’ve already had a situation with the neighbor, which I’m going to vent and tell you all about.

I had to go to my home today for the inspection. (It went well and there’s no major issues). My mom came with me, and my realtor met us there, along with the inspector. As soon as we pulled up, we see a man coming out of the residence next door and onto my porch trying to look into my house. We both had a WTF reaction. My mom rolls the window down and says, “Can I help you? Are you looking for someone?” He said he saw someone go into the house and knows that nobody lives there, so he was checking it out. My mom mentions how I am buying the house and that it was the inspector who just went inside. That alone made me think this neighbor was intrusive and a little kooky.

I’ve got some big news! It’s part of why I haven’t been as active as usual. I wasn’t even going to write this post tonight because I’m currently sick, yet again. (My second time in two months). I should be in bed resting right now, but I wanted to share my exciting news with you all. If you follow me me on Twitter or Instagram, you may have already seen my posts about this.

Makeup Look: Pastel Odyssey

blog01

Pastel looks are so much fun, and it’s the perfect time for one! It’s Easter, it’s Spring, and my once vibrant hair has also faded into a more pastel rose color. I love trying to get a little creative and use colors that I wouldn’t normally use in an everyday makeup look. Overall, I’m quite happy with this look. I really love how the colors just seem to blend really well together.

Products used:
👽 Mannakadar Blush (shade Paradise)
👽 ColourPop highlighter (shade Honeymoon)
👽 Lime Crime lipstick (shade Airborne Unicorn)
👽 Loose Glitter
👽 Shany 120 color eyeshadow palette
👽 Shany gel eyeliner (shade Supernatural)
👽 NYX retractable white eyeliner
👽 Grande Cosmetics Mascara Primer (white)

Grande Cosmetics VoxBox

IMG_2756

I received my fourth VoxBox, complimentary of Influenster, a week and a half ago. If you’re new here and don’t know what Influenster is yet, it’s a site/app that gives you the opportunity to receive and try products for free in exchange for reviewing, sharing on social media, and completing a survey afterwards.

I have to admit, I had not heard of Grande Cosmetics prior to this, but I was definitely intrigued once I got the email that I would be receiving this box. I had never used eyelash serum or primer before, but I was definitely excited to try them. Especially since I don’t have very long lashes.
