A Terrific Tuesday + What I Wore Wednesday

Hey guys (gals)! So I totally went M.I.A. yesterday and I must admit that it felt pretty great. I haven't taken a day off for myself for a while now. I had planned to go to work, but then I realized that I needed to pay bills anyway, so decided to use the day to run errands and get some things that we needed.

So early yesterday morning I took Chloe and Trace and we went "all over" - as Chloe put it. I picked up a few new beauty products:


Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System - tried it out yesterday and I LOVE it! My skin was sooooo soft all day long yesterday and it felt a lot lighter.



Maybelline Falsies Flared - forgot it in the bathroom and have yet to try it, but I have heard amazing reviews so far.


I also grabbed a few new items for my spring/summer wardrobe:


Clockwise from top: light blue/white striped loose knit tank top with crochet detail on back, grey/black striped maxi dress with lace detail on back, navy/white striped heart t-shirt with cut/weave detail on back, straw hat with black ribbon. All four items purchased at Ross for under $30.


Also, my godparents bought me a sewing machine! I had been talking to my godmother at Trace's party on Sunday about Chloe's upcoming party on the 24th and how I wanted to make some hobby horses (you know, the stick horses) as party favors for the kids under 5. I had hand stitched one already but it took me FOREVER because I don't have a sewing machine here. My parents said it would cost too much to ship my sewing machine from Hawaii, so I was going to buy a new one later this week. Then my godfather showed up at our house last night with a brand new one for me! I was ECSTATIC!


Of course I couldn't wait to try it out, so I made one horse head last night:


Still need to add the ears and the blaze (the stripe down the middle of the horse head) but I decided to use fabric glue for those. So once that's done I just gotta buy the sticks and pop em on! I'm really super proud of myself right now! (Can't you tell? I just said "really super".)

And I didn't start on the Bodyrock.tv challenge yet since I finally went to the Zumba class but I will try it tonight AFTER I finish my final projects...(which I haven't started on and are due tomorrow!) -__-

Sorry for such a long post, but I'm trying to make up for being MIA yesterday, so finally, here's what I'm wearing today:


Makeup: Natural look - MAC Mulch (crease), MAC Mythology (lid), MAC Blacktrack (liner), and nude lips.
Top: Navy/white striped heart tee with cut/weave detail on back
Bottom: Blue/black jeggings
Shoes: *My faves again* Steve Madden Tatianna Wedges

  1. The falsies mascara is fantastic! I don't like clumpy lashes and it gives good volume without clumps. Also those stick horses are sooo cute.

    1. Yes, I plan to do a review after 2 weeks or so. But after the first use on Tuesday, my skin still feels really soft and light.

      And OMG I tried the 1st of the weekly challenges this morning and I couldn't finish. I totally puked. Maybe it was too early in the morning, but I'll try it again tonight and see how I do.

    1. Thank you! And so far I love it, it makes my skin feel a lot lighter since it gets rid of all the dead skin cells. It also says it helps to reduce wrinkles and dark spots which is awesome because I think is never too early to start preventing wrinkles!

  6. I am definetely intrigued by falsies flared! I have the regular falsies and it isn't bad, but it does wear down my lashes, perhaps this is better? for great lashes I do wear the colossal waterproof mascara for defining and making them a bit harder and falsies on top for volume. I don't think I have ever used a mascara that was truly amazing, so I have to play around with different ones to get a decent effect!
    Love your blog too by the way :) Def following

    1. Thanks for the comment and the follow! Totally following you back!

      Falsies Flared is definitely one of my favorites so far. I curl my lashes before applying and it tends to hold throughout the day. You should definitely give it a try. I'd love to see a comparison between the regular Falsies and Falsies Flared.
