Fall Ready:OOTD

Fall is almost near, are you ready? I AM! Although summer is my favorite season, I am a sucker for sweaters and jackets. It was a bit on the windy side the other day so I decided to cover up just a bit more. I had bought this boots a while ago and I was dying to wear them. This was a step up from casual, I was heading out to eat sushi with my friends.

Bday Celebration:Part 2

My very good friend took me to Melting Pot on my birthday. I never been and always heard good things. It is a modern restaurant that does fondue set on your table. First of all the place was very fancy looking but VERY dark.

You get to choose a cheese course, a main course and a dessert course.
We chose cheddar cheese. It contained beer, garlic, salt, pepper and cheddar to dip they give you brocoli, carrots, bread pieces and apples. I DO NOT think apples and cheese went well so I didnt attempt, but the bread was soft and DELICIOUS!

Then was the meat course we just ordered breast chicken. It comes raw and you cook it in the broth. IT also brought brocoli, potaotes, and mushrooms. Then there were sauces to dip in. One was curry, cheese, and terayaki.

The BEST part was the dessert course!!! We ordered the yin yang which was white and dark chocolate. The stuff you got to dip with was strawberries, pound cake, bananas, powdered marshmellows, brownies and cheesecake!!!

The food was amazing but the prices can be pretty pricey. So definetly a special occasion kind of place. But it was something fun and new.

My Birthday Weekend: Part 1

OMG!!! Thank god its Monday I am exhausted! My weekend was so amazing and so much fun. I turned 25 on Sunday. My birthday was parted into 2 parts. On Friday we had a nice dinner at Chili's. I was craving for a margarita, and Chilis has the best hands down...Presidente's!! I havent had any alcohol the second I found out I was preggo with my baby girl.

Then we went out dancing. I had a blast! I never danced so much in my life.

I wore fake eyelashes for the first time. Surprisingly easy to put on. Must say though quite uncomfortable, you definetly know you have some on. I would use them for special occasions only. Maybe next time I should go for something more natural. I was definetly inspired by the Kardashians. Makeup, hair and dress! I found this dress at Ross for $20.00!!!! Paired it up with my tennis bracelet and black satin heels, almost the same material as the dress. I really been into animal print lately and this was the first addition to my collection.

Dolce Vita Dupe

Do I have a special treat for you guys! You can save quite a deal if you really like NARS Dolce Vita lipgloss, I found a DUPE! NYX lipstick in Thalia. While yes it is a lipstick I figure you can put a clear lipgloss and get the same effect but this way its better you have a choice between gloss or lipstick. I LOVE this color. Its like a wearable red. Nars lipstick runs for about $24.00 and NYX lipsticks can range from 3-5 dollars.

My Experience with the Neutrogena 3 in 1 Hydrating Acne Treatment

As I probably mentioned before that I been having some acne problems since giving birth to my daughter. I dont know whether its hormones, my diet or lack of water. Whatever the cause I purchased this item to help my breakouts. Well Im sorry to report this product hasnt done anything for me. It hasnt made it worse but it also isnt helping. I have been using it everyday for about 2 months now and have seen no results. I will not repurchase this item.

What do you do for breakouts?

Physicians Formula:Blush & Bronzer Experience

Rose Glow:Blush and Highlighter
This quad is amazing! I love the fact that it can be multi-purpose. As an eyeshadow, as many different colors for blush and an highlight. It is very shimmery but I like that. As an eyeshadow it didnt crease but it did have some fall out. As a blush I did have to do a touch up. The highlight gave me such a nice glow. I use it as a highlight often and get compliments all the time. I give this product A++.

Vegas Strips:Eyeshadow, Bronzer and Highlight
This quad is full of bronze and gold colors. I think its FAR too shimmery for a bronzer. I would not recommand it for that purpose. Eyeshadows and highlight was the same as the Rose Glow quad. It really gives a nice glow on a neutral eyemakeup day. I give it a B.

I would repurchase both items.
