JANUARY MANI'S

Friday, January 31, 2014

If you read my post on 5 Beauty things I won't apologize for, see here, then you'll know I love to change my polish quite often. This month was no exception. I share all of my at home manicures on my Instagram, but I wanted to share my favorites for this month. 


REVLON COLORSTAY LONGWEAR NAIL ENAMEL in BOLD SANGRIA


SALLY HANSEN SUGAR SHIMMER TEXTURED NAIL COLOR in BERRIED UNDER

ESSIE NAIL LACQUER in VESTED INTEREST 

O.P.I NAIL LACQUER in MIMOSAS FOR MR. & MRS. 

LOADED LACQUER GOLD RUSH DAYS over ESSIE NAIL LACQUER in SUGAR DADDY

Loaded Lacquer is a polish brand I found on Instagram, which I thought was only glitter, but she has other polishes as well and just came out with a new set she name The Jiggles . The owner's name is heather, check her out on Instagram and let her know I sent you. Or go directly to her site and see what else she has in her collections, here. I ordered my set of glitters right before Christmas time and I love them. 

ESSIE NAIL LACQUER in LAPIZ OF LUXURY 

Use #verosaysnails to see all of my mani updates on Instagram. I'm declaring February the pink polish month for Valentine's day! 

If I at any point inspire you to purchase a polish or create a certain mani please use #verosaysinspired and tag me so I could see.

THE SUMMER I FELL IN LOVE

With Valentine's day creeping up, I thought it would be appropriate to share a little about when I fell in love. Please share yours if you'd like, and link in the comments so I could read. Or simply leave a short comment down below to share your love story!



It was the Summer of 2011, when I fell in love... I was off work most of that Summer for the first time in my life I didn't have a job. I had so much time off, and what I did with that time off was life changing. 

I fell in love with two people at the same time..! Ha! I know what you're thinking..! I'll just leave you to the pictures so you could see... 























So, what did you think? I fell in love with Jose and his daughter Emily. I am blessed to have them both in my life and will forever cherish the bond Emily & I have created. 

That's all for now, I dedicate 
this post to Jose and Emily, who my love grows for daily.

BLOGGER CRUSH-January

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

 I wanted to get this new series up and running for this New Year, as I have been on a role with following new blogs and social media accounts. What I will be doing here, is posting about a certain blog that I have really been enjoying. I have so many lovely blogger followers who read my blogs as well as post their own, and I wanted to share some of my current favorites in a monthly post. 

My favorite blogger for the month of January is Liliana from BeautywithLily.

Her blog says:
I am your average 20-something-year-old girl from Texas, I am a nurse, happily married, and I have a passion for anything makeup! I love finding great beauty products and saving money while doing it!



I love the way she reviews her products, she's very detail oriented and gets to the point without leaving any important information out. 

Go check out Liliana and let her know I sent you! 

Also, if you're a blogger, I invite you to give your #bloggercrush a shoutout!

MAKEUP MONDAY-Face Product Favorites

Monday, January 27, 2014

Happy Monday!!! 

I wanted to share with you some of the face products I am currently enjoying.. I don't try new things too often, when I like a product I usually like to use it over and over again... 
So I will update as my Current Favorites whenever I feel like I have new products I am loving. 

Stay tuned for other beauty favorites this week..



I am not a fan of foundation because they get kind if heavy on my face, so I've grown a love for BB creams. My favorite BB cream since the beginning of last summer is the Garnier Skin Renew in Light/Medium. It leaves my dry skin dewy but not at all shiny nor greasy. I have redness on my cheeks and between my brows, & this BB cream does a good job at evening out my skin tone.


Mary Kay Tinted Moisturizer 
Yaby Foundation from an Ipsy bag
Garnier BB Cream 


Along with the redness I have slight dark under eyes and I've been loving the Sonia Kashuk concealer quad. It comes with 3 shades of concealer (light, medium and a green shade) & a setting powder. I don't use the powder, as it tends to get a bit chalky.  Others I have also been enjoying: 
ItCosmetics Bye Bye under Eye
Sonia Kashuk concealer quad 


Covergirl & Olay concealer 
NYX Eye Shadow base 
(I use as a eyelid primer) 


Bare Minerals Original Foundation 


This is the only powder foundation I have been using and only to give a bit more coverage when using a bb cream. It doesn't mess with my dry skin. 

NYX Pore Filler 
I feel like I have been mentioning this a bunch, I can't compare it to anything else because I haven't tried anything else. It is on my to do list. See my NYX Pore Filler Review here


What are your current favorites!? Let me know in the comment section below! Have you tried any of my current favorites? Any products I should try out? 

Thanks for reading! Look forward to your comments.

JANUARY IPSY

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

If you don't know what Ipsy is, it is a $10 monthly beauty subscription box, where you get beauty products to try including a makeup bag. Most of the time the products are from brands I have yet to try or have tried very little of. In my opinion it is a great deal because you can take a quiz on the Ipsy site so that the products you receive are somewhat to your liking. I haven't had a bag where I thought I was ripped off. 


January Ipsy 

I have been subscribed to Ipsy for a few months and I am glad I can say I have never been so dissatisfied with a bag, so much that I've thought of canceling. I do use the products I have gotten in the past, and enjoy them very much. I got the bag sometime last week, looked at it and pushed it to the side until today because I was so busy. I'm happy I am finally able to really dig into it. 

There is a different theme every month, this month it is 19 Reasons 2014 will be amazing, I think because of the 19 different brands that participated in this month's bag. 

Here is what I got this month: 


Absolute! Makeup Cleansing Tissues 

Mica Beauty Cosmetics Tinted Lip Balm in Natural 

Yaby Liquid Foundation in Buff

Nourish Organic Face Lotion with Argan+Rosewater

Classic Small Foundation Brush
Are you subscribed to Ipsy? If you subscribe with my link you'll start receiving your bag and I get Ipsy points that I could accumulate and eventually redeem for extras. 

Use my link here, to start getting your Ipsy bag!
