Unexpected Vacation

It’s was not too long ago that I had my rant post and I was complaining about needing a vacation. (I’m sure you all just loved that post)  That very next day I received a phone call from my dad…. long story short… last week we bought plane tickets to go to Las Vegas next week!  This will be our second time going to Vegas in 6 short months! Needles to say I am VERY excited.  My dad, grandma, great aunt, and my cousin are meeting us there and I can’t wait to spend time with them!  

Another HUGE plus is that I will be there for my birthday!  I am turning a whopping 25 years old this year and will get to spend it in VEGAS.  oh…AND that is my great aunt’s birthday too…It’s about to get cray cray.

I will be in Vegas for an entire week so it will be an awesome break from reality! I’m ready for some HOT weather.  We are starting to get fall weather here and it is now chilly in my  house at night.  With that being said…I am going to go crawl in to my bed and cuddle with miss Ellie Mae while we wait for K to get home. from work!

Have a great Wednesday!

August IPSY Glam Bag Review

August IPSY Glam Bag Review

Here are the products I received this month:

Dr. Brandt Pores No More:  I have received this sample in a few different boxes and I have yet to try it.  I am happy that I received it because now I have more product to actually test out for a good period of time.

Lord & Berry Silk Kajal Eye Pencil: I haven’t had a chance to try out this liner but I was excited to see it in my bag!  I love to get eyeliners, but I was a little sad to see that it was a teeny sample size.  I did swatch it on my hand and it was very creamy/silky.

Coastal Scents Forever Blush in Fresh & Elegant: Both of these shades are absolutely beautiful and are very soft to the touch.  I was a little disappointed that it was just a teeny sample size.  I feel like it is going to be hard to use it but I will still be trying it out!

Absolute Lip Balm in Green Apple: This lip balm smell sooooo good! I have already tried it out and I think it feels nice on the lips.  I don’t think it really lasts that long but it isn’t a bad balm at all.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara:   Omg.  Seriously.  This Mascara is uhmayzing!  I was VERY excited to receive this mascara in my bag.  I wore it all day today and put it on before going to work.  16 hours later…my lashes still look amazing, there is no fall out, and I am just in love.  I am going to be picking this up the next time I am in Sephora.


Overall thoughts:  I thought this bag was okay.  The mascara pretty much made the bag for me.
