TGIF FOTD!! Featuring TooFaced Cosmetics and L'Oreal

Welcome back Beauties!!  I'm excited to share today's details b/c I have been waiting to play with this TooFaced palette what seems like FOREVER now!!  The look I created today is something I like to call...a "Mossy" look.  How's that sound??

This palette offers deep earthy tones, most with shimmer or glitter and a few mattes, which I used the cream matte shade as a blending shade.  The colors I used to create today's look were Nightcap (a toasted khaki color with shimmer), After Hours (a glittery taupe color), Eclipse (an irridescent brown) and Night Fever (a forest green with gold specs).

This palette is definitely in the neutral family however, these are DEEP tones, and some I'd favor to jewel tones?  If there is ever such a thing??  Neutral jewel tones??  Any who, I LOVE the shimmer and glitter payoff, however some I know do not like that so much, so if that's YOU, you may want to take a look at the matte palette that TooFaced offers.  This palette I used today only offers 2 matte shades, the rest have an irridescent, shimmer or glitter finish to them.

Another little gem I used today was the L'Oreal Golden Emerald infallible eye shadow and this is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!!  I found this at Ulta and I am SO glad I purchased this beauty!!  It also has gold glitter specs in it, which makes this another fall staple you MUST invest in!!

I usually like to pair my makeup with what I'm wearing - yes, I'm THAT dork!!  But today I didn't care b/c I have been wanting to use this TooFaced palette so I just came up with a lil sumthin-sumthin ;))

Another NEW Fall staple I now have and can't wait to come up with some more gorgeous eye looks!! 

I hope you enjoyed today's FOTD and remember to shop my custom glitter tumblers at

Remember to leave your trail of glitter ;))

FOTD featuring L'Oreal and Milani blush

Happy Thursday Beauties!  Today's look is including my NEW drugstore beauty products L'Oreal CupaJoe palette and Milani Fantastico Mauve blush.

I've seen BOTH these products featured in several YouTube videos and on Instagram, and if you can, I suggest grabbing both of these as they will easily become staples in your beauty routine, ESP for the fall!! 

I absolutely LOVE this blush - I'm a sucker for anything shimmery and glittery and this blush DEF has it's share of shimmer.  So, if you do NOT like a shimmery blush, then I would steer clear of this one.  It's gorgeous though, and I don't feel the shimmer is overkill on my face.  But I'm indoors, so it's not like I can really tell??

This eyeshadow palette is nothing but matte, neutral shadows, so if this is more your "cup-o-tea" (or CUPA-JOE haha) then I recommend this little beauty!!  You can usually find L'Oreal products on sale at your local CVS, or Walgreens and that would be the best time to get it!

I did add a little extra "pizz-azz" and put glitter liner along my bottom lash line.  I used NYX glitter liner in CRYSTAL SILK.  It's a champagne colored glitter and is gawwjusss ;)) but I'm a glitter addict so I'm partial ;))

I hope you enjoyed this look and don't forget to check out my online store of GLITTER TUMBLERS!!

Trials and tribulations of parenthood...Pt.1

So, this is just going to be a little recap from this past week, as it has been a WHIRLWIND for me!! So much stress, some good, some bad, but taking it all in stride, at least trying to...most important thing from this week has been getting the word that we can move our daughter from her Preschool to her "big girl" school. Which is a big deal for all of us. This has been a decision in the making, so to speak, and we got confirmation there was a spot available for her to move into her next school and I couldn't tell you the relief I felt, as I have been dealing with nothing but heartaches and headaches from her preschool. I'm not one to trash a business's reputation HOWEVER, her preschool has been a bear to deal with from day one - at least for me. I drop off and pick Kayla up from her preschool so I've been feeling more of the aggravation than my husband. 4 out of 5 of the staff are rude towards me, and have at one point or another spoken nasty to Kayla. And then yesterday I had hit my limit - the Principal laid into me as I waited to pickup Kayla's health records b/c she wasn't happy about the fact that she was losing our money. That was what it boiled down to. Idc WHO you are, you NEVER put a parent on the spot or question their decision regarding THEIR child!! I left in complete shock and dismay that she went to the levels she did, and I couldn't get out of there fast enough. I called my Mom, and wound up crying to her about how I was treated. I wished I had had more of a backbone to have stopped this woman on her wild rampage, however I was completely caught off guard and had no idea what to do. PLUS, as she went on and on about, well, nothing actually, there happened to be other people in the room who she did this in front of. I wish I could illustrate my anger and disgust I STILL feel from that woman, however all I can do is offer my words. It is TOUGH raising kids, then dealing with all the things that come along with being a parent can be truly trying and a test to one's characture. You are tested to the limits and people question you and your parenting decisions ALL. THE. TIME. For those of you who aren't parents yet, but soon to be - I hope that you don't have to deal with these issues, however, truth be told, it is bound to happen as some point or another. I had someone, who I considered a "friend", go out of their way to slam me as a parent and it crushed me. They had no idea the wrath I felt, as a Mother, to be told, without warrant, that I was doing wrong by my child. This so called friend had not had children of their own at that time. So, for those of you who aren't parents yet, please use caution when approaching parents about issues related to their kids. At that time, and in that situation, I did not ask for their opinion however they offered and I was completely done with them after that. I couldn't get past what was said. As a Christian, I know that's not living the way, but I'm also only human and I do live to a fault, sometimes. That's basically my week in a nutshell - it's been all about my daughter and getting her enrolled into school and moving on to bigger and better thing, but also all the drama that followed our decision. Who'd of thought that us trying to "move on" was going to come at such a price?? Thanks for stopping by, and remember to leave a trail of glitter ;))
