Nails #39 – Sinful Colors Cold Leather

Hi guys! I’m back with another nail post! I recently purchased a new matte top coat..it’s the revlon version. I was using NYC’s but it never dried all the way and my nails ended up being ruined.

I wanted to go dark that way the matte would really show so I choose Sinful Colors Cold Leather! I don’t think I’ve ever used this color before but I love it. It’s a super dark navy blue in some lights it could look almost black. img_0667

After I applied 2 coats of color I applied the matte top coat. It ascended my exceptions! It applied & dried well..definitely going to be using this more & more.

This has to be one of my favorite manis even though it just plain..it’s just so simple and I like it.

Book Review: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares

Hey guys! Today is Wednesday, book review time! Today I’m going to be sharing a book that most probably would have read in middle school or so but I found my copy just the other day and NEVER read it, so I thought what the heck it can’t be too bad. Let’s go!

They are four main people in this book, Tibby, Carmen, Lena, Bridget. The pants belong to Carmen but she didn’t really like them so offered them to Tibby but then Tibby offered them to Lena and so on..they all finally realized that seemed to be magical because they all could wear them and look great in them.img_0661

This story took place over the summer and all 4 girls where going to be in different places but wanted to share the pants…so each one got to wear them at some point during the summer because they shipped them from one person to the next. Each time, each girl had them, they helped them in someway when they were in a time of need or were going through a struggle.

Each girl had there struggles during the summer from getting turned down by a guy to finding out that Carmen’s dad had another family and didn’t really care for her..the pants helped make situations better.

This book was a quick read but I was hooked the entire time! I would say this is probably recommend for at least 13 & up! There are also a few more to the series, I’m not sure if I will purchase them or not. If I remember correctly, I was left hanging at the end..unfortunately.

Feel free to comment any book suggestions below.

Nails #38 – Essie Petal Pushers

Hey guys! I’m back with another nail look that I’ve been rocking. I didn’t want anything to  crazy but I wanted an accent nail to stand out.

I used Essie’s Petal Pushers on all my nails. I love this gray. It’s in the middle between light & dark..just perfect.

For my ring finger accent, I used a white nail striper and made a line straight down and then winged them out as I will call it. I found some gold studs I had laying around applied nail glue and placed them on the white line. img_0651

I decided to give my matte top coat by NYC a try..I applied it to my ring fingers & middle fingers. It doesn’t show up too much but in person you could see it.

And that’s all!

Winter Walmart Beauty Box Review

Hi guys! I’ve been receiving the Walmart beauty boxes for a few seasons now..they don’t come every month. The price is reasonable at $5 and that’s just to ship it. I thought I would a post to share what you receive.

This seasons box wasn’t the best I’ve gotten but I loved a few things. Typically you get 5-7 products I think..could be wrong. This time though it was 5 products.

Let’s talk about the packaging though! The blue and gold along with snowflake tissue paper..I love it!

  1. Covergirl Lashblast Volume Mascara – I’m so happy this was in there! I needed a new one and I’m so glad it’s covergirl. I have the green one I think it’s just the plain lashblast and I really liked it. Can’t wait to try this one.
  2. Curel Hydratherapy Wet Skin Moisturizer – I’m excited to use this being that its winter and my skin is dry!
  3. Dove Revitalize Body Wash – This is suppose to be a good moisturizing body wash. I’ve never used dove body wash before but I’m looking forward to trying it. The scent is mandarin tiare flower blossom, you can smell the orange with a hint of floral.
  4. Pond’s Anti-Wrinkle Cream – I’ve have gotten 2 or 3 of these so far! I’m hoping I don’t get another, haha. I haven’t tried it yet but I guess your never to young to protect against wrinkles! The scent smells like baby powder.
  5. Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Yogurt – I received another moisturizer except I’ve never heard of body yogurt. It is vanilla and oats fragrance..but is very light!

This was an okay box, definitely my favorite thing was the mascara. I seem to get repeat items every so often like the Pond’s cream.

Book Review: Forever Summer by Alyson Noel

hey guys! Today is wednesday so that means another book review. The book I’m going to share with you is Forever Summer by Alyson Noel. It has two books in one and I will share a little bit about both below.

img_0584

 

Laguna Cove: I flew through this one real quick. It’s basically about a girl named Anne, whose parents got a divorce and now she’s going to live with her dad for a while in California. She arrives and doesn’t know what to do. She ends up meeting a few girls and guys at her new school, Lola, Ellie, Jade, Chris…there may be a few others. They are all into surfing when Anne is used to diving. Throughout her time, she decides to learn to surf and Chris teaches her. She starts to feel feelings for Chris but then she feels like Ellie doesn’t agree with it. In the end, it all works out.

Personally, it was an okay book. I feel like it’s for teens not so much young adults but I enjoyed it. The one thing that I didn’t like was the chapters..every other page was the start of a new chapter..kind of annoying.

Cruel Summer: This was also a quick read. It’s centered around a girl named Colby who’s parents also are going through a divorce but they send her away to her Aunt Tally’s on a small island for the summer. She hates living there because it’s so basic, white everything. She ends up finding a place to hang out everyday and starts a blog to stay in touch with friends back home. She also ends up meeting a boy and finds out that everyone on the island is basically family and finds out all secrets. In the end, she learns so much about herself and doesn’t want to leave the island.

It’s hard to describe the book without giving too many details because there wasn’t much to each book. They both tend to go on and on.

Overall, both books were good quick reads. I’m not sure if I would read them again being that they were slightly boring.

Let me know your opinion if you have read it!

Chat later.
