GIRL MEETS GLITTER- NOVEMBER IPSY

Friday, November 28, 2014

Oh Ipsy, I love thee. Another great bag this month. This month the pink bag was not the same as previous months, it didn't have the metallic touch to it. No big deal, just an observation. If you don't know what Ipsy is, it is a $10 a month beauty subscription service. I have been signed up for a very long time nad have never wanted to cancel my subscription. Some months are better than others, but they are never terrible for me. 

Each month you get a makeup bag with 4 or 5 sample, deluxe size and/or full size products, based on an online quiz you complete to your liking. Here is what I got this month:


Marc Anthony Oil of Morroco Argan Oil Hair Spray 
J.Cat Beauty Wonder Lip Paint in Red Potion 
Elizabeth Mott You're So Fine Liquid Eyeliner in Glitterati 
Be a Bombshell Cosmetics eye base in Submissive 
Temptu Highliter in Pink Pearl 

 For the past two months I have been giving away some of the items in my bag if I wont wear it or I have too many of the same products, I always end up sending a few extra surprise goodies in the bag. This month in the giveaway:

SAVE MONEY: HOW TO SHOP ON EBATES

Wednesday, November 26, 2014


'Tis the season. It's the most wonderful time of the year. I absolutely love Fall as it leads to Thanksgiving, then Winter and Christmas. It all just means cozy and love to me. 

We try not to go Christmas crazy until after Thanksgiving, but we have to understand why the rush. Christmas goes so fast. 

I don't like the hussle and bussle of Christmas shopping at the mall's, so I do my best to get a lot of it done online. This year is my second year shopping through Ebates for Christmas. 


Today, I am sharing how to shop with Ebates to make some cash back. 

What is Ebates
A company that gives you a certain percentage cash back on your orders if you purchase with their links. So you want to buy something from sephora, you could go on Sephora.com and purchase. OR, you could use the Ebates app (or on the computer Ebates.com) after you're on their page, you click on Sephora and you start shopping for what you wanted. After your purchase you'll get an email letting you know how much you are getting in cash back. 

Sometimes I have only gotten $1, or $3 at a time, but it adds up (if your order is small, the bigger the order, the more you get). They send you a cumulative check in the mail after a certain period of time. Below you will see how much I have gotten as a total since using Ebates for my shopping. 

Here is an overlook of the app which you can download, I personally enjoy shopping with the app on my phone instead of on my laptop. 

This is the main page. At the top you'll see Hot Deals-find "need to see" deals here. Favorites-you can favorite your favorite stores. 2x Cash Back-this is where you can find stores that are offering double what they usually offer for cash back. For example: right now Nordstrom is having 6% cash back, normally they offer 3%. 
This is all under the FEATURED section. 


Under the STORES section there is a list in alphabetical order of all the participating stores. You can also search for a store you love. 


When you use the Search option under STORES, if the store participates it will come up with the amount of cash back they are offering and you can click on that. 


The TELL A FRIEND section allows you to spread the word & get rewarded. There are options to share your referral link on social media or copy & paste. 


The SEARCH section allows you to search for stores, products and or coupons available. It also showcases stores that are trending. 


The MY EBATES section gives you a look at your earnings and when your next check is due. 

When I first signed up they sent me a $10 gift card to my chosen store- Target. 

Sign up for Ebates today using my link, start getting cash back for things you're going to buy anyway. Once you create your account, you can refer your 
friends as well and get compensated for doing so. 

Let me know in the comments section below if you already shop through them or if you're signing up! 

Happy shopping!

VLOGMAS & CEREAL ON A SUNDAY MORNING

Linking up with BianaLeeann, Bella , Molly . 

Who loves a good selfie? I was filming my November Ipsy and took this photo, it was the first one I took and didn't feel the need to take another #score


I remember watching cartoons on Saturday mornings, or playing early in the morning. This Saturday morning I enjoyed watching Jose and Emily work on some Frozen puzzles. 


Nothing better than a good ol' bowl of cereal on a Sunday morning.

#GIRLSCAN CAMPAIGN FOR COVERGIRL & GIVEAWAY

Friday, November 21, 2014

Today, I am sharing a collaboration with Covergirl for their #GirlsCan campaign. I work full time, and am also a full time student. I'm always on the go, and because of that, I have my go to look. The few times a week I wear makeup it is very neutral and quick. Be sure to head over to my channel to see the look I created using COVERGIRL products, including the Flamed Out mascara. 




The COVERGIRL #GirlsCan campaign promotes the empowerment of women by encouraging them to break down barriers and turn “can’t” into “can”. You can help by purchasing your own limited edition mascara from COVERGIRL. 

The #GirlsCan mascaras come in 2 varieties at Walmart everyday low prices: COVERGIRL Flamed Out Mascara and COVERGIRL Professional All-in-One Mascara. 

COVERGIRL is turning “can’t” into “can” by donating $50,000 to Dress for Success®. The COVERGIRL #GirlsCan displays can be found in the cosmetics section of your local Walmart. Visit GirlsCanGiveBack.com to learn more about #GirlsCan at Walmart.

I remember taking a year off college to work, be free and have no school responsibilities. It wasn't long before I realized I made a mistake. I should have stayed in school and finished with everyone else from my class. I didn't. Two years later I was still kicking myself for quitting, and then my facebook newsfeed was flooded with my classmates graduating from college. All of my friends had their degrees and I had nothing. 

That's when I decided it wasn't too late, I couldn't stop working because I had bills to pay and have always been very independent. I enrolled in school, went full time and worked full time. It was hard, it IS hard but I did it. I got my Associates degree on education and I am ALMOST done with my Bachelor's in Elementary education. It's never too late, if I can do it, so can you. 

Your turn! What's your #GirlsCan message?

 *The Walmart gift cards, product, and information have been provided by COVERGIRL.
Giveaway is US only.

Wednesday, November 12, 2014


It was my birthday last month, I am incredibly blessed. I was able to share my day with loved ones and celebrated on a few different occasions. Thank you Jose for always making my days special. I have already shared my happiness with you on our vlogs as well as social media-my family.

Part of being a blogger involves sharing what you get with others. Today, I am sharing my presents. I got so many. Thank you to everyone who gave me a gift, or gift card, you're all too sweet. I am separating my birthday haul into three, makeup/beauty products, nail polish and clothing.

HOW TO: BLUE DOTTICURE-Mani Monday

Monday, November 10, 2014


I have been on a nail design kick lately, but I am not a professional nail artist, so I go to Instagram for inspiration. I cam across a few dotticure mani's where different colors are used for the dots towards the end of your nail. I really loved it and recreated it in pink, see here.

I was then asked to re-create it in a video and I did. Thanks so much for the request. I decided to do in blue since we are in the crazy Movember status (Jose is growing out his beard!) I personally liked it with the pinks and white, but the blue is beautiful as well.







Let me know what you guys think in the comments section below. Be sure to head over to the video for my prep and how to for this manicure. Thank you Nailstorming for the inspiration.
