Pure Integrity Candles Haul

I have received my second order from Pure Integrity and I could not be happier! I have found these are my favorite soy candles and they will make your whole room smell delightful. They are soy candles and are a lot healthier than most brands. Plus, they are animal testing here! The package even comes personalized with a handwritten note.

Pantene Beautiful Lengths Donation

A week ago I decided to donate my long hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. This is my second time donating my hair and I love the feeling of helping woman feel better about themselves when the circumstances do not permit.
This is my hair before getting it cut. I love long hair, but when it gets so long, in my opinion it doesn't do anything but sit there. It was time to let it go.
Here is my whopping 10 inches! Before getting it cut, of course you feel nervous. Once you see the hair cut off, it makes you feel liberated and very good that you are helping someone in need.
 Here is the after! I LOVE it. I asked for an asymmetrical bob. It is a little longer on my right side and shorter on the left. Short hair makes me feel so much more professional and ready to accomplish anything.

How to Organize Deep Dresser Drawers

Until a few days ago, I could not stand my deep dresser drawers! Everything would get so cluttered and trying to keep store bought organizers in place without shifting everywhere was a completed joke! With that being is the "before". 

I wanted to find an inexpensive and custom way to make my drawers more organized. I used foam board (like you would use to make a poster for class), cheap fabric, and some spray adhesive. turned out perfectly!

A big thank you to Pinksofoxy on YouTube! She explained everything step by step & made it so easy. Go check out her video if you would like to make some custom organizers for yourself!

Essie "Master Plan"

Essie's "Master Plan" is a gorgeous creme gray color. Lately, I have been very attracted to neutral creme colors on my nails.
This is "Master Plan" with flash. This is two coats of Essie's polish with one top coat of Jesse's Girl Julie G "Jet Set" top coat. 
Here is "Master Plan" with natural lighting. 

I highly recommend this color for any skin tone. I think it would look perfect and flatter everyone!

"No Makeup" Year!

Since January 1st of 2014, I have promised myself I will only purchase THREE makeup items this whole year. I'm not counting if I run out of my CC cream or concealer. Three makeup items as in eyeshadows, blushes, highlighters, or things of that nature. Things that I don't really NEED. Well, I wanted to share the first item that I have purchased this year. This means I only have two items that I can buy for the next 10 months...hard I know!
Ta-da! It's the be MATTEnificent palette from Tarte.
As soon as I saw the outside of this palette, I knew I had to have it! It is gorgeous!
The colors are gorgeous, too. I made sure to swatch this in person before I decided to buy and once I did that, I knew this palette was perfect!

Are you doing a "No Makeup" year? Let me know!

I will be doing a review on this palette as soon as I get some more use out of it :)

Nicole by OPI "My Empire...My Rules"

"My Empire...My Rules" was a part of the Kardashian collection for Nicole by OPI. I am finally getting around to wearing this after having it for over a year. I'm actually quite surprised I haven't worn it because I really do love the color and the coverage of this polish.

Christian Siriano for Payless "Icon"

I was trying to find the "perfect" shoes for my new job. Something that was comfortable, but very cute at the same time. You'll never guess where I found it...Payless! These shoes are Christian Siriano for Payless. They come in black, berry, navy, and leopard. I have the black and berry and I just ordered the navy and leopard.
They are 3 3/4 inches tall, which are a great height for me. I find that a lot of shoes out now have enormous heels that are not practical for work. I think this height is perfect for me!
The final test for me is...toe cleavage! I hate toe cleavage, it's something that I can't stand. It's hard to find a shoe that doesn't show every single toe. Again, that's why I love these so much!
Here are the berry ones, perfect for fall! Oh, and if you haven't noticed, they have leopard print inside of them. :)
I have worn these for a month on and off and they still look new. These are great quality for Payless!

If you are looking for some cute shoes for work or even for every day, I would recommend these! I purchased the navy and leopard ones today online for only $32! That's a steal!
