Wait.. I thought I lived in THE SOUTH?!

Hey all!

Well, if you watch the news/weather at all you've probably heard of the SnowPocalypse that has been hitting the south for the past week or so. Here is a pic of what we've seen:
Yeah.. that's a car.

Needless to say, I've been playing instead of writing! ;) (Including an impromptu haircut which I wish I had taken pictures of!!!) So today's post is going to be a big ol' mod podge. Enjoy! =)

Ok so first of all, I haven't really been wearing any makeup so the only review I have for you is a happy new pink shade I found at Ulta~
Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Polish in Pave

I think it's a beautiful shade!! This is after 2 coats-- I think a third will make it perfect. It's just a happy peachy-pink with gold shimmer. Love! Definitely warms my heart with all of this COLD SNOW.
-Edit. Just did a third coat. It IS perfect!!


Let's take a peek at some of the neat new products that caught my eye: 

Karen from Makeup and Beauty Blog reviewed the Urban Decay palettes I posted about last week~ they are $34 a piece and are available now at

Speaking of eyeshadows--- NYX has a new palette out-- One Night In Morocco, $12 at Ulta

I play with it every time I'm at Ulta, haha! The colors are quite nice! Keep in mind they're all matte shadows, in case you're a shimmer gal. It's an amazing deal for $12-- and perfect for creating a Kardashian-esque smoky eye!! (I would have so snatched one up if I didn't have my Naked Palette ;) 

I love this 2-in-1 product!! Innovative packaging!! Pixi Succulent Lip Twin at Target for $18:

When I can get out I am SO PLAYING with this one! It's actually a triple tasker-- the outer "dome" is a lip AND cheek tint, and the tube is the gloss. How fun!! And how happy is that color? Yay, Spring!

Another cheek tint-- I adore this packaging! Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain, $45 (!) at Sephora

This is a water based line of lip and cheek stains-- I just adore the cheek packaging, almost like a stamp for your cheeks haha---though I would NEVER pay $45 for it!! Geez.

Also! Remember to vote in the Allure Best of Beauty awards~ link here ~ for a chance to win an $8,000 spa trip! I did mine today, and I thought I'd share some of my votes. Here are the screen shots:

 Anyhow! Leave me some thoughts. Anything. What're you up to today? How's the weather? =)

Until next time--
