NOTW-Super Nature and mini Tuxedo's

Nail Art is something I have begun to adore! It is super fun and creative, and you can do almost anything with it! The NOTW is inspired by Zooey Deschanel's nails at the Golden Globes and PurseBuzz' tutorial for Tuxedo Nails. I took inspiration from them but went my own way with the design.

 I painted my four "finger's" with the Revlon TOP SPEED in Super Nature, and my thumb started with a coat of Wet 'N' Wild Fast Dry in Ebony Hates Chris, I then taped off a triangle on my nails, and painted a coat of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails, Xtreme wear Nail Color in White On. I waited for this to dry and then striped on Wet 'N' Wild Fast Dry in Silvivor to make a lapel, outlining the white. I waited again for this to dry and then took Ebony Hates Chris, Super Nature and LA Color Nail Art Deco in Red Glitter, a few dotting tools, and set to work on the buttons, the bow tie, and the lapel flower. I sealed everything in with LA Color Top Coat, and VOILA! a super cute Nail Art design:)

My Weight Loss is something that I am extremely proud of. I started in February 2011-weighing 175 pounds and by June 2011 I weighed 135 pounds--I had already lost 40 pounds! I did this by cutting out the junk, eating healthy, and excercise, and I am now extremely proud to say that I am getting back into working out with Dance Central 2 and eating Healthy again!
Today's Video is all about How I lost the weight and what Ive done to keep it off!

Cat-Eye Technique for Flawless liner every time! & OOTD Casual Day Off!

Since I wrote you last, I've uploaded my Cat Eye technique video for flawless mod cat-eye's every time!...and...my very first OOTD video, for a Casual Day off:)

My Cat-eye technique is such an easy and quick way to retro line your gorgeous eyes so they are correctly angled each and every time! In the video I used Sleek cosmetic's ink pot in Dominatrix which is a gel liner, but you can use a liquid liner, or even a pencil (pencil won't get you the perfect point on the outer edge, it will however; give you a slightly softer, smokier, sexy/smudgey effect)

My OOTD video for a Casual/Classy Day off is a collision of Old Navy pieces, forever 21 jewellery, and nail art done my way by me:)
 I hope you're all enjoying this lovely week and keeping toasty warm:)

December Favourites!

My first ever Favourite's video was uploaded earlier today:)

It consists of...
Dove Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner
Garnier Skin Naturals, Essentials Day Moisturizer for Dry/Sensitive Skin.
MAYBELLINE DREAM SMOOTH mousse in 110 Porcelain Ivory
Juicy Coture, Viva La Juicy Perfume
The Body Shop, Coco Butter Lip Care Stick
C.O. Bigelow, Rose Salve
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in 055 Cupcake
Spa Resource Stipple Brush

These Products have been my Fave's this past month of December because...

Dove Nourishng Oil Care Conditioner is amazing! It has brought my lifeless, weighed down, over-processed hair back from the dead! It is weightless, it helps repair and soften your tresses, while giving it the nourishment it needs! I recommend this to everybody!

Garnier Skin Naturals, Essentials Day for Dry/Sensitive skin has worked miracles for my dry-dry-hella dry skin! It's a Gel Cream, so it has way faster absorbtion than other moisturizers, and it gives me enough moisture it's a great under-makeup moisturizer, and it's not too heavy for a busy work day.

MAYBELLINE DREAM SMOOTH mousse in 110 Porcelain Ivory. This product has been out for a little while, unbeknownst to me! I use to use the counterpart; DREAM MATTE mousse, but as my skin is so dry already, it doesn't need more drying out. the Matte aspect of it, makes my dry skin look like the Sahara! and this makeup hydrates, while blending in and applying like a dream! it makes my complexion look flawless!

Juicy Couture, Viva La Juicy Perfume is the perfect scent for me! It's amazing in the winter-time and in every season. To me it smells like sexy sweaters (I know, you're probably thinking; what the heck, do sexy sweaters smell like?) It has "top notes of wild berries and juicy mandarin gently tempered with honeysuckle, gardenia, and jasmine. Underlying it all are warm tones of amber, caramel, vanilla, sandalwood, and praline." Doesn't that sound delish?

The Body Shop, Coco Butter Lip Care Stick. I purchased this because I love Coconut Oil, It works wonders for skin, hair, and food! This lovely little stick, smells great, and hydrates and nourishes my lips at the same time! It is excellent in the winter or any other dry time.

C.O. Bigelow, Rose Salve is also one of my favourites this month! It is a miracle product-It's uses are Lips, Face, Cuticles, Elbows, Knees etc. I use it on my lips and my dry patches--ITS AWESOME!

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in 055 Cupcake. The Blog-o-sphere has been blowing up about this product, so I just had to get one. THEY ARE AM-A-ZING!!! They are so rich and nourishing and super pigmented like Lipstick.

MAYBELLINE BABY LIPS in Grape Vine. It seems every company these days has been creating a Balm with colour to hydrate everyone's winter Lips. I have Grape Vine and it smells and tastes like Grape, and it has delightful moisture, it says on the package that it has 8 hour moisture--it doesn't, I'm fairly constantly re-applying it, but The sheer wash of Grape is perfect over a pastel pink lip pencil to give you an interesting, unique lip color!

Spa Resource Stipple Brush. A simple stipple, foundation-duo fibre brush I got at Wal-Mart. I love the quality and control I get with this brush, and the bristles stop shedding after a few washes.

Beauty Warriors 2:Favorite Drugstore Foundation

I've just Uploaded my second Beauty Warriors video it's on Favorite Drugstore Foundation's. In Case you don't know what Beauty Warriors is, It's a YouTube Collaboration consisting of...CookieFarrer, FibercrazedBeauty, twizziesplace, VividlyChaotic, LadyCocoSea1, AuttyW, BlushBrush87 and...myself of course! susiewantsasqueeze!
 We choose a product to review every month, sometimes it's eyeshadow palettes, and this month it's Favorite Drugstore Foundations!

I have used every drugstore liquid, cream, compact, and mineral foundation, some by Rimmel, Almay, Maybelline, L'Oreal, Cover Girl, Hard Candy, etc. My Skin is super dry and sensitive and prone to breakouts! I usually just forgo foundation all together and just use pressed powder because it just hurts my skin too much. But I have found the Holy Grail of products! it is...MAYBELLINE DREAM SMOOTH mousse! It is super hydrating, and unlike it's counterpart DREAM MATTE mousse it doesn't make my skin look drier than the sahara! It makes my skin look flawless, it's a tad darker than me, and I wear the lightest colour they make, I always have to switch back to MAYBELLINE in the winter; as they make the only foundations pale enough for my skin, that I've tried-and like. It applies like a dream with my stipple brush, and it makes my skin look flawless!

It's been FOREVER; it seems, since I've written a proper blog post!

My Apologies lovely readers, let me update you on all my comings and goings. I work retail and so during most of December and even the first little bit of January I was extremely busy! Whenever I wasn't working--I was sleeping(and I didn't get much either)! My month was very chaotic to say the least! But alas, It's January (we're into our second week now!), and I digress, the hours are much fewer at work, and I'm privileged to earn back some of my hibernated social life!

I plan to film a whole tonne of tutorials this week/next so that next time I get so pressed for time, I have some video's stored up my sleeve:D! I was gifted a SONY Handycam this Christmas, and what a camera it is! The detail, focus, and light capture are astounding, now when I film a tutorial you can see my technique and the brush strokes!

NOT ONLY will I be filming way more tutorials, I want to begin a series--INSPIRED BY BOWIE; THE RISE AND FALL OF ZIGGY STARDUST! what do you think? the looks will focus on more performance and editorial styles and they will be way less wearable, But I love this idea!
