Mini Haul




Yesterday was such a lovely day, My boyfriend proposed! Ahhh!! It was truly special day and I just cant believe it, I'm still in shock and I'm excited for what is to come. We stopped by to do a little shopping and I stopped by Kohl's makeup section and wow I was impressed by how much it has changed and how they added new makeup lines. One being Essie I was drooling over their pastel colors they are the prettiest shades. My boyfriend being the sweetest he let me test the polishes on him he is such a good sport I love him. This shade is saltwater happy #1128 and it's the prettiest ever! I really wanted a new nail polish to show of my engagement ring lol and Its gorgeous I think I'll be doing a post about my engagement and my ring and all that good stuff their is just so much I can write about that I think I'll save it for its own post. Let me know if you what your favorite Essie polishes are because I am definitely going to go back and get more!

Currently Obsessed # 1






This is going to be a serious of currently obsessed products, Now at moment as I type this I have this huge fan hitting my face its so hot must I say my favorite time of the year is winter I absolutely love the winter and the cold weather the fuzzy socks and the warm drinks but man I cant stand the summer! Its not summer yet exactly were only a few days away and I just cant bear the fact of the summer blaze....  I picked out my currently obsessed products with heat I'm trying to keep it minimal and fresh. The first thing is this gorgeous blush by Milani Cosmetics its in the color 01 Romantic Rose and it gives this amazing soft blush look, In the picture is shows up a bit more lighter than it is but its beautiful. The nude lipstick is by Forever 21 in the color Natural and I was a bit hesitant to purchase it but must I say its creamy and soft and the perfect nude color for my skin tone, Its also super inexpensive! Nail polish is by Loreal in the color 260 Sweet Nothings its a simple light peach color perfect for the summer. This is a single eyeshadow from WetnWild in Brulee its matte and it very well pigmented. Most of the time I use it as the main lid color or on the arch of my brow its perfect, I have always loved wet n wild their products are inexpensive and work well!

Lastly I have this concealer by Maybelline and I use it under my eyes for my dark circles and it brightens and makes me look awake, with this heat I try to stay away from foundation. I'm going to go and attempt to make ice cream to stay cool with this heat I hope it comes out delicious!

It's a Date





Its gloomy hot day today, Perfect for a date shake! After the gym today I felt out of energy, I came up with this super easy shake and its a picker upper! I love dates and one of the best date shakes I have ever had is from a local market that is ridiculously far from me and not to mention its high in calories and sugar and its not at all good for you. This simple super easy date shake is so yummy and refreshing it will give you energy for the rest of the day, I hope you enjoy!
