Game of Thrones x Urban Decay

Even though Game of Thrones ended, I’m still allowed to talk about it, right? I wasn’t able to keep up with this blog while the show was still airing, but that’s okay because the show is over & despite all the backlash the last season received from some fans, it’s still one of my favorite shows.

While the last season was still airing, I was actually able to cop the Game of Thrones x Urban Decay makeup pallete. I even promised myself that I wouldn’t buy any new makeup this year unless it was to refill anything that I already have, but I still had a Sephora gift card that my brother got for me last year, so I thought, well, why not use it!

New Nails, Who Dis?

I got my nails done again over the weekend, but I’m not as pleased with them as I was during my last visit. I was contemplating doing holographic again because I loved it so much the first time, but I also wanted to try something different. I want a faded/ombre glitter nail design, but I guess when you show nail technicians the kind of design you want, it’s a hit a miss because designs can’t always be copied.

I love the length though! I don’t think it’s that long as it was the first time I had my nails done & I like this nail shape 💅🏾

Anastasia Beverly Hills x Glow Kit in Sun Dipped

Last weekend, I used my gift cards to buy ColourPop x Sephora’s Golden State of Mind eyeshadow/glitter palette along with Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Glow Kit in Sun Dipped. I loved the samples of the two palettes in the store & I couldn’t wait to try it out at home.
After I bought it, I went out shopping & went to eat for 3 hours. Once I got home, I opened the Glow Kit to take photos of it, but once I opened it, three out of four of the swatches were cracked!

I have to say I was just a little disappointed that it was already cracked considering how expensive it is & I had not used or let alone, swatched it yet. I have always read great reviews of their brand, so I’m a bit surprised.

Thankfully the Sephora employee had no problem issuing me full store credit. I’m hoping to use my store credit & find another, better one at a different location.
I don’t buy makeup as often as others do, so I don’t really know what’s up. Is this a common issue with this palette? Are some of them just defective?



This has been on my wish list for a while, so I took advantage ColourPop’s free shipping during Halloween, & it finally arrived last week! I have ordered from their website before & I have always been happy with their products. One of my favorite things about their company is their packaging. I appreciate the little messages they send out to their customers! They change it up from time to time, which is so cute 💄 I haven’t tried it out yet, but I’m hoping it looks good on me as it looks absolutely great on everyone else I’ve seen it on!
What did you think of this swatch & this collaboration?

Birthday Love

This post is a month late, but I finally put everything together. Thank you for all the birthday love & greetings 💖 Please don’t think that because this post is late, I didn’t appreciate all the love I received! I wanted to include something special that Jeremiah got me because it had just arrived this week. Thank you again for the patience & love!

Jeremiah actually got my lens a month early because it was on sale, so he wanted to take advantage of the opportunity. I love it! Only one more lens left for me & I’m all set for a very long time 😊

When the clock struck midnight, Jeremiah got me this birthday card & it’s perfect. He also showed me his other birthday present for me, but it will arrive in a few weeks. I don’t want to say what it is yet because I think it would be better if I were to physically have it & show you all 😭

Jeremiah ordered a custom vinyl for my birthday filled with songs we love & he specifically picked out the ones that reminds him of me 😭

My sister got me lipstick from Colourpop & I’m glad I was able to pick out the colors because they all worked out well for me.

She also got me some clothing items!
My mom got me my first Louis Vuitton 😭 I actually asked her to get me the lens I wanted which is SO much cheaper & something I could put to much more use lol, but neither of my two older sisters really care or are interested in brand name items. I’m only somewhat into it & it’s not exactly something I would go out of my way for. I’d rather invest into traveling or camera equipment, but I’m the only one my mom shares a bond with when it comes to her “fancy” tastes. We don’t bond over much, but at least we can bond over this.

I got a birthday reward from Starbucks, but I was only given 3 days to use it before it expired. If I can remember, members were given much more time to use their birthday rewards, but eh, oh well. I got one of my favorites (:
I also got a birthday gift from Ulta! I didn’t even know they gave out birthday gifts until this year! I wish I knew about this before, but better late than never!
I already have a ton of eyeshadow palettes, so I’m really trying to stop myself from adding any more to my collection (lol), but it’s free, so why not!
I look forward to my birthday gift from Sephora every year. haha. They had lipstick, blush, & something else from Tarte? However, I could tell that it just wasn’t my color, so I chose the moisturizer & serum from Caudalie.
The two items have really great reviews on Sephora, so I hope that I see some difference after using it.
My face suffers from dry skin, is acne prone, & has some dark spots, so it’s a big struggle trying to find the right cleansers, moisturizers, & foundation for my skin type & tone.
If you have any recommendations for my skin type, please feel free to leave a comment! I appreciate any helpful input 😊
After having dinner & watching a movie with Jeremiah on my birthday, I came home to a few more goodies!
My brother & Sarah got me a gift card to Sephora! Just what I needed 😅
& my older sister got me a few little things from Europe to snack on 🍬
Jeremiah’s parents got me a bracelet from Michael Kors & his sister got me a floral one piece suit!

Holiday Edition Kylie Kyshadow

I didn’t get a chance to blog this morning, but I have a ton of things I need to get done today & tomorrow. I feel a little stressed out. haha. I have some gifts I still need to wrap & buy. I need to pick up a package tomorrow. I need to print photos. I need to edit photos. I need to clean my makeup brushes. I need to do laundry. AUGH. SO. MANY. THINGS. TO. DO.

I hope you’re all having a great day so far. I tried building a gingerbread house with my nephew this afternoon, but the roof broke apart. I think I need to buy more icing.

Here are additional photos of my Kylie Cosmetics Holiday Edition Kyshadow. I’ve used it once so far & I really like the matte colors. The only thing I dislike so far is that one of the glitter swatches wasn’t transferring well! My brush had trouble trying to pick up the color. I’ve heard mixed reviews about this palette. Some people had palettes that worked out well for them. I hope that the other glitters aren’t the same. I would be really bummed if I got a bad one too😣
