Ins & Outs: December Edition

*This amazing December weather! Where I am from, there is normally 10 inches of snow on the ground by now and -20°F degrees! *knocks on wood*
*NYX Lip Lacquer Pot in Georgia Peach. I LOVE this stuff! I am going to do an "obsessed" post about it. It's this subtle nude/peach/pink color and it's moisturizing and i'm just in love with it. It is a bit sticky so if you don't like that, then you may not like this
*Red lips. You can see a "get ready with me" tutorial here! I've been LOVING MAC's Russian Red and the L'Oreal infalable lip color Beyonce's Red
*CHRISTMAS TIME!!!!! I love evvvvvvvvvverything about Christmas! The music (shamelessly listen to all year round), family, decorations, just the moods of everyone. It's my absolute favorite time of year!
*Dry skin. All I can say is that I have been dealing with this for years and i'm soooooo tired of it. Not on my face but everywhere else
*Not going to the gym. I need to get back into it but when I'm working 2 jobs, plus doing my photography... I just get so busy!
*Hair color. Bleh. I'm tired of my current tone, and am going to be going lighter soon. Most people go darker around this time of year, but not me. I love being blonde. I used to color my hair all the time and I was a brunette for a LONG time. 

That's all for now. What are your ins and outs?

Obsessed #1: Twisted Peppermint Anti-Bac

I've been quite bad at blogging, haven't I? *slaps hand*
To make up for it, I've come up with a new series for my blog. Obviously you've seen the title, original, I know :]
So, this is going to be dedicated to random obsessions I have, and it can be ANYTHING. Fragrance, shampoo, books, food, etc. You get the picture, eh?
So, for numero uno:
Bath & Body Works Anti-Bac in "Twisted Peppermint" (Link!)

*smells delicious*
*kills bacteria*
*small, convenient, handy*

Do you have any of these? What are your favorite scents?

Sephora Friends & Family Sale 2011!

I've been terrible - I know; the lack of posts is shameful....
But to make up for it I'm bringing you some fantastic news.... Sephora F&F Sale!
From 10/20 - 11/2 you can get 20% of your ENTIRE purchase. Go to this link:
Put your email address in and they will email you a one time use code. 
I am honestly still thinking of what I want to get, and am debating. I know for sure I am getting the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Tipsy, but I'm currently looking at everything on their site....
I've finally come to this place in my makeup obsession that I don't need everything... if I have to search for things to buy at Sephora, well then I probably don't need it, lol. 
I was contemplating on getting the Clarisonic Mia but I noticed on other sites they have it for $119 too and they also have sales more than once a year. I was also contemplating the purchase because I have pretty good skin and I don't think I need to shell out that much money for something that I probably don't NEED. Therefore, i'm thinking of getting the Sigma Cleaning Tool kit, or whatever it's called. It's $40 and probably good enough for what I need.
Anyway - back to the Sephora F&F sale, I really don't know if I am going to end up getting anything. If the only thing I want is the blush that is $25 and with the discount it will bring it down to $20 but then shipping is 5.95 so i'd be spending more online than in the store.... 
So, what do you plan on getting?

theBalm at TJMaxx!

 Run... don't walk, to your nearby TJMaxx because, as I have heard, most of the TJMaxx stores are currently carrying theBalm products for super cheap! I picked up a couple things, for myself, and a giveaway! I got a back up of my BELOVED theBalm Mary Lou Manizer only for $12.99! (retails $24) Super great deal! I found the items near the rest of the makeup section, by the hair stuff! They also had some eyeshadow palettes, blushes, bronzer, etc. So hurry and go check it out!!!! Oh and at my store, they had the makeup taped up, not because it was previously opened, but so that you couldn't open it. So when you are checking out, make sure they open it for you to make sure the product isn't broken before leaving!!!

 Did you check it out? If so, what did you get?

Tag: This or That?

I really love this tag! It is such a good idea!!! I made a video on this a long time ago and forgot to upload it, so I thought it would be fun to do for a blog post! Here we go!
[blush or bronzer] I am going to say bronzer because you can always use your lipstick to pull some color from to give yourself a flushed cheek color

[lip gloss or lipstick] Definitely lipstick. Some lipsticks have such a nice sheen to them that you do not even need gloss.

[eye liner or mascara] Mascara HANDS DOWN. I cannot leave the house without mascara. I can go without ANY makeup at all, but I always need mascara!

[foundation or concealer] Concealer. For sure. I don’t always wear foundation, in fact, it is rare. Concealer helps cover little flaws, and even out your skin tone, without masking your face.

[neutral or color eye shadow] If you would have asked me this, let’s say 2 years ago, I definitely would have said color eye shadow. The thing with me is, I really really love both. A lot of people only like neutral eye shadows, but I can’t imagine just having neutral’s, ever. On a day to day basis, yes, I’ll wear more neutrals, but if I am going out I LOVE to wear color.

[pressed or loose eye shadows] I can’t choose just one. The nice thing is with loose eye shadow you can press it into a pressed eye shadow, and there are REALLY great colors out there in loose eye shadow form. But, again, if you want more neutral colors, I’d say pressed. (I’m bad at this choosing one thing)

[brushes or sponges] Brushes. If I needed to use sponges I would, but I prefer brushes.

[OPI or china glaze] I love China Glaze formula but I LOVE the glitter polishes from OPI.

[Long or short] Short. Long nails make me cringe.

[Acrylic or natural] I used to ALWAYS get acrylic nails, for years! But, now, I am a natural nail kinda gal.

[Brights or darks ] I wear brights more often, but I REALLY love dark polishes for fall/winter.

[Flower or no flower] No flower.

[perfume or body splash] Perfume. I love having my own “scent” and having it last all day. Don’t get me wrong, I still love body splash, but perfume is so feminine!

[lotion or body butter] Definitely body butter for me. I have really dry skin on my legs and body butter seems to moisturize much better.

[body wash or soap] Body wash. Soap seems so drying.

[lush or other bath company] To me, Lush is an overpriced bubble bath store. I do like their skincare products, but for bath products… other companies.

[jeans or sweat pants] When I go out, jeans. When I’m home, sweatpants.

[long sleeve of short] Long sleeve for winter, short for all other times.

[dresses or skirts] Skirts. Way more versatile I think.

[stripes or plaid] Plaid. I know it can seem “hick” haha, but if you wear it write, it’s cute.

[flip flops or sandals] Flip flops. They are so comfortable. Especially Havianna’s!

[scarves or hats] Scarves. They are so nice looking and you can wear them in SO many different ways!

[studs or dangly earrings] Dangly earrings. I like to wear my hair up in the summer, and dangly earrings make it look so cute!

[necklaces or bracelets] Bracelets! They add such a nice statement to any outfit!

[heels or flats] Heels. They elongate the legs so much, and are so feminine! They make you feel like a woman!

[cowboy boots or riding boots] Cowboy boots! So cute!

[jacket or hoodie] Mm… both. Depends on the outfit.

[forever 21 or charlotte russe] I don’t have a Charlotte Russe near me, but I do love them when I can get to one. Otherwise, I’d go with F21.

[abercombie or Hollister] Neither. Ew.

[saks 5th or Nordstrom] Even tho I don’t have either one near me, I looooove Saks.

[curly or straight] I would say wavy. That is what my hair naturally is, and is the easiest.

[bun or ponytail] Definitely pony tail.

[bobby pins or butterfly clips] Bobby Pins. Neat and undetectable!

[hair spray or gel] Hair spray. I haven't used gel since the 8th grade... lol

[long or short] Oh definitely on me, long. I do NOT like myself in short hair.

[light or dark] I've been every color, but for me, the best is light. I should try to upload some pictures of me with dark hair.

[side sweep bangs or full bangs] I like both, but for me, I really like side sweep.

[up or down] I would like to wear it down all the time, but I do wear it up quite a bit.

[Rain or shine] I love rain when it's at night and I hear it on the windows, but otherwise I love shine!

[Summer or winter] Mm I like summer for a little bit, I HATE how humid it gets where I am!

[Fall or spring] Fall Fall Fall Fall Fall Fall! Enough said?

[Chocolate or vanilla] Chocolate!

[East coast or west coast] I really love both.

I tag all of you! I hope you enjoyed this!!!
