My feet never get enough attention so today, with some of my friends, I wen to get a pedicure. The nail salon I went to didn't have much of a color selection but one color stuck out at me instantly. It's China Glaze in Passion in the Pacific. 
The "swatch" doesn't really do the polish justice! It's a beautiful, very unique color. This color is a minty-teal color. It's not a mint green but it's not full on teal either which is why I think it is absolutely perfect for the rest of the summer! I wish I could preserve this color on my toes, but unfortunately, all good things must come to an end!

Until next time,

"And ZXY because it sounds sexy!"

If you're familiar with the TV show "Friends", the title of this blog may ring a bell (that line was said by Monica in "The One with the Bullies" which is what I'm watching as I type!) Lately, all I have been watching is Friends on DVD! I keep forgetting how funny that show was! Which is why I want to do a mini series involving some characters from the show! Whatdaya think?

I finally finished my bottle of sweet pea hand sanitizer (thank the lord!) and I just wanted to let you know what scent I will be using for now. This sanitizer is actually in spray form instead of in the bottle (which does not fit nicely in my sanitizer drawer, may i add)! It is fresh market apple. I got this scent during this past year's Black Friday event at a Bath and Body Works outlet so I don't think this scent is available anymore. But I wanted to share this with you because I have never smelt a scent so close to the name in my entire life! I cannot believe how close it smells to a fresh apple! I'm glad I've got another (thank you black Friday deals)!

One final thing I want to add is that at the end of September, I'll be taking a short four-day vacation. Although four days is not long without a video, I just wanted to give you guys a little heads up! But before I leave, I am for sure doing a What's in my Travel makeup bag video which I'm so excited about, I want to film it now!

Until next time!

I recently picked up Too Faced Smokey Eye Palette and let me tell you, I LOVE ITTTT! This palette is perfect for me because smokey eyes are my favorite thing to do! But lately, I've been using one specific color in this palette along with another shadow and it has been my favorite combination on my eyes!

After priming my eyes, I take Mary Kay's eye shadow in Moonstone (pearly champagne) on my lid. This color was my favorite as a highlight color, but I have discovered how pretty it is on my lids. I'm not sure if this color is still available from Mary Kay, but if you ever happen to stumble upon it, pick it up immediately!
Then, from the Too Faced Smokey Eye Palette, I take the color Cloves (smokey bronze-brown) and apply into my crease. The finish of this eye shadow is GOREGOUS! And paired with Moonstone it looks even better!

Who knew that something so simple could look completely amazing! I'll add pictures of this soon, describing it in typing doesn't do this combo justice!
