100 followers **GIVEAWAY**-CLOSED

YOU.GUYS! 100 followers?!

i know this has been long overdue and i apologize immensely! i’ve been so picky with what i wanted to thank you guys with! but seriously, thank you so much for supporting my creative outlet. it really means so much! i started this blog just thinking it would be a place that i could jot down all my thoughts that were too long for a facebook status but now it’s my hobby! it’s something i look forward to doing. i still haven’t got my style down pat yet but who cares, right?

i love being able to connect with other bloggers that may be thinking the same things i am and just reassuring me i am not a total nut! so thank you for that, thank you for indulging in my weirdness!

enough of the mushy gushy let’s get to the goodies!

open to legal residents (18 years of age or older) of the u.s. only. if i get to 500 followers i will open it up internationally. fingers crossed! 


my most favorite products that could be yours! {worth $55+)

{1} urban decay – naked basics palette – i use this palette every single day! i like a more subtle nude/brown eye rather than a bright eyeshadow or a smokey <black> eye. this is the best palette for said, subtle, eye. most of the colors are matte and go on so smooth. love love love

{1} eos – lip balm in vanilla mint – uhm, if you have not tried this lip balm yet, you.are.missing.out! 1) it tastes amazing 2) it makes my lips so soft 3) it keeps them moisturized with all the pesky matte lipsticks i use.

{2} 3.2 oz voluspa candles {via anthropologie}- santiago huckleberry & goji tarocco orange are cale and i’s favorite scents. my absolute favorite is bourbon vanille but they didn’t have any smaller sizes in that scent…so…sorry. eep! but goji is my favorite too!

{1} 2 oz it’s a 10 – miracle leave-in product – if you have curly or frizzy hair, this will be your best friend! to tame my hair i would usually have to put a pound of mousse along with some gel to get it to not frizz but now just a few squirts of this stuff and it’s like magic in a teeny bottle. i love the way it smells too.

rules to enter:

1) follow my blog {via wordpress or by email} – this is the only mandatory rule. all the rest will just get you additional entries {1 each} to win! if you already follow my blog then just do the others {or just one other way to enter} i will verify each additional entry by going by my follower list first. does that make sense?

this just popped up on my facebook feed a few days ago and i can’t stop watching it! i love love dance…so you think you can dance is my guilty pleasure.

3wick tin - french bourbon-350x350
{voluspa candles}
cale actually showed me these… his ex-girlfriend must have shown him because we could only find them in anthropologiei know he doesn’t frequent anthropologie so this must be the case haha. but now these bad boys are popping up everywhere and i love it! nordstrom now carries them, i linked the general search for them {here}. they may have always carried them but it’s news to me so i’m sure it’ll be news to someone else too! my favorite is french bourbon vanille {pictured} it smells soooooo good!

Anastasia Beverly Hills - Contour Kit
{anastasia beverly hills contour kit}
alright, alright i gave in to all the hype about this and got myself this contour kit. and i love it! the banana highlighting powder is great if you have yellow undertones like i do and the darker contour colors go on so smooth! i use a combination of both the bottom left and middle. i’m not talented enough to use the really dark one yet. hehe i would absolutely recommend this product and it’s only $40 at sephora {linked}…steal!!

that’s all for this week, folks.
until next time!
