Target Haul: September 1st!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! I know this was supposed to be an ELF haul but due to shipping problems I have to wait for my stuff. Be glad I went to Target today when I thought I had an appointment this morning. I needed a few things and did pick up a few make up items while I was at it and a few things I wanted to try while another was something that a fave YouTuber tends to rave about!

The Essentials: First I needed more of my Clean and Clear Sensitive Skin Toner because I tend to go through it pretty quickly and now at a half a bottle or less since I use this item twice a day as directed, well there are times when I do it once a day. I love this stuff since a lot of companies do make sensitive skin items when it comes to skin care. Next is the Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine for Frizzy Hair! I started using this when I had highlights at the beginning of the year and it kept my hair from going crispy like when they blow dry it and put hairspray in it, which was a big no-no and wished it didn’t happen due to my hair being a frizz ball. So glad I use the Marc Anthony Argon Oil Hairspray. Anyways, this Frizzy Hair oil was suggested by dorm staff in Daytona and it works wonders and it’s my third purchase of it! I use it when I wash my hair and on days where I use my dry shampoo and need to give it my hair treatment pick me up!

Make Up Items: Well, went down the make up area because I was looking to try newer items and one of them was a stop at ELF and since I wanted to try their face primer and glad to know that Target carries it. There were four different ones in this range which were the hydrating one, the porerless one, and two different versions for tone correcting. I went with poreless because I tend to have that run in with pores around my nose and I feel the gunk from my make up go into my nose ridges and have to use the strip time-to-time but they are stubborn like crazy! I am thinking to the radio commercial on ITunes for the Biore Charcoal Strips, which I am thinking of trying those next, talking about how gross they are and with me they are a pain! Hoping this doesn’t break me out since the Smashbox one did kind of do that and it may have been the batch I got in the Try It kit and ELF items for face tend to have salisilic acid, let’s see how this works!

Next, since it was the next section over, stopped by Maybelline to pick up the Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara! Since I have so many shadows, liners, and wanted to try out newer mascaras as a break, which I had a shadow purchase and that’s next, decided to check out another Colossal counterpart. I almost got the regular one since Vivi liked that one and I already like the Chaotic, but what caught my ears the most is the Cat Eyes one! Of course, mention “cat” you got my ears! It claims that the formula in this mascara spikes out lashes to give more of a cat eye look, especially at the corners. I have to try this out and see how it goes since it will be my first time trying it out and if it goes well like the Chaotic, which I did get my second tube of not too long ago, then I will wear it with my cat ears, collar, and now tail.

Next, I tried dropping by Rimmel to see if they had the East End Snob lip liner and they didn’t at the location I went to. I ended up going through it due to all the points breaking off and will have to remember that not to touch it too much and it will break everytime. I still love the liner and will probably look at Ulta on another girls’ day thing or at Walgreens or WalMart. I did pop by L’Oreal since I kept on hearing Kathleen Lights talking about the Telescopic mascara and was glad to find it. I like the packaging on this a lot because it is pretty much a telescope for what it says on the packaging! It also claims that it defines lashes to make them longer. I will give this a try since I do like the Miss Manga, the newer Miss Manga Rock Edition, and the Butterfly mascara, which I like to try out newer ones and get the ones I like over and over. Let’s see how this one works out and end up on re-purchase lists!

Finally, the Infoluble eye shadow in Eternal Black! I have been on a eye shadow no-buy or try to since I did get the Hikari Ready for Fall set from Ipsy and that contained three shadows and it’s hard not to get any more shadows since they are a staple to wear and new ones keep coming out and I do like the drugstore ones I own, especially the Infolluble Shadows by L’Oreal! The ones I have in case you’re wondering are Soltry Smokes, since I use that for my L cosplay to accent his sleeping eye look and it looks nice for everyday wear, Iced Latte, a golden nude, Amber Rush, which is a copper nude Bronzed Taupe, which is taupe with a bit of a bronzey edge, , Midnight Blue, which looks amazing with my hazel eyes or green when it’s the right transformation (my eyes tend to do that), and Golden Sage, which is a golden green color. The one I got this time is Eternal Black because I have been a curious kitty in trying out black shadows and not just as a smoky eye thing. I have to thank Vivi for it since she is kind of having me step outside of the box due to showing me the Primal shadows by NYX that she recently picked up and one of them was black. I decided why not go for broke and get Eternal Black since Jen from Head to Toe talked about this color in a haul a while back, she did get me into these shadows all thanks to that haul, and knew I would probably pick it up someday since it’s a nice, shimmery black shadow! I may have to wear this for Soul Switch because I am thinking of wearing my zombie ravaged shirt. Still, glad to step out of the box for a bit and this will go nice with my black liners on top of it since I wear my Smoky liner from Hot Topic with Soltry Smokes!

Well, that is it for this haul! I will have the ELF haul up once I have this shipping situation fixed. I did call them a few minutes ago and they will be re-shipping my items, which I am thinking due to the “Ship for Free” special it caused a major mix up. I will tell the entire story once I get the entire order in and hoping that I get all six items I purchased originally. Stay tuned for that! Once that is done, will try and do the whole too young for make up post and then start my new segment, “Doesn’t Sound the Same.”

May and June Favorites 2015!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! I was going to do the permanent make up controversy until I didn’t realize that it was close to the end of June and that means May and June favorites! This May and June, I had a few faves from Omni Expo and a few beauty thingslet’s see what I got for you guys this time and good news, no not-so-faves!

Favorite Voice Actor Moment: Meeting Matthew Mercer again and meeting Jessica Calvello and see her geek out! Oh man, Omni was amazing this year! So many guests and so many events, man it brought a lot of great moments as well!One of them is meeting up with Matt Mercer during his second year back and he did recognize me through my cosplay despite having my crappy cold last year. Don’t worry, diddn’t get sick again before the convention. I did have Gondras with me and he was cosplaying of course the 4th Doctor and that was the one that got Matt into Doctor Who since it was what he watched before going to school. Don’t worry, he got a Jelly Baby along with Lauren Landa and some of the other guests! Another moment is seeing Jessica Calvello go nerdy the entire weekend, even cosplaying as her character from Attack on Titan! It is great to see a voice actor have fun and Jessica Calvello is one of them! Still great to see her panels with Matt and David Walde!

Favorites Interview: Bryce Papenbrook! It was hard to choose from the interviews I done but Bryce Papenbrook’s stood out the most since I waited the months before to meet him and glad to have that one on one with him. Plus, it was the most head breaking one, which I will reveal it and that is his dad played the role of Rito Revulto in Power Rangers. I watched a video of it and was like “OMG, it is him!” Bryce is a very nice guy and a very talented one at that!

Brushes: Kabuki Brush by ELF and Concealer Brush by Glamier! I am adding brushes to this list because there are two fave brushes that I have been using. First is the ELF Kabuki brush and man I can see why people went crazy for this one! It is easy to hold and very soft and easier to apply my foundation now on top of the newer foundation primers I’ve been trying out for a change. It also doesn’t cost that much either like the Bella Pierre one I got in my BoxyCharm this month which is $20 and bigger than it because the Bella Pierre one is a bit smaller and sheds a little when I first got it like other people. Next is the Glamier Concealer Brush from this month’s Ipsy bag. I might be cheating since I started using this once I got it in my bag but couldn’t wait to use it! I love how soft it is and easy to blend my spot concealer which is what I use it for. I use a smaller one for my under eye concealer from one of the brush sets I got this month, this one is best for the spot concealing since it can provide the easier canvas for foundation and with blending the foundation with the kabuki, with whatever I don’t blend with the concealer brush it will blend the rest which makes it better.

ELF Daily Brush Cleaner! Speaking of brushes, I had to bring up something interesting I found and that is the ELF Daily Brush Cleaning Spray! As an ELF user, I didn’t know this exist until I bought an eye primer to try out after using up the Mica eye primer I received in Ipsy and then my dad found a brush cleaner. I decided to get it and try it out since I like to clean my brushes a lot more easily than just soap and water and that seems to gunk up the brushes a bit, which my foundation brush from ELF has gone through that. Anyways, this is an easy to use spray which you just spray the bristles and use a cloth, which I use a standard towel, and clean off the make up and residue. I did read through my Open Book when checking directions on the box (For any curious readers, it’s a scanning program for the blind that reads documents, it helps read the BoxyCharm cards and packaging for buying make up when needed) and saw that it mentioned a brush shampoo. I have to hunt that down whenever I go back to Target or might have to see about the website having it. I am so glad ELF has their own brush cleaner because it sure beats just soap and water and it is easy to do it in one, two, three since the brush dries right away. I don’t know how much it costs, maybe it’s a bit more than the make up items that get sold, I would say try it out especially for any make up artists that need that rapid clean while on the run without breaking the bank!

Mica Eye Primer! I finally started using it since I ran out of the City Color Cosmetics one I’ve been using since last December. I got this in my Ipsy bag along with many other people and not sure if I did mention it in a faves but mentioning it now! I know Mica is a highend brand and saw the price on an eye shadow duo that Ipsy had for an Ipsy Me and I think it was close to $40 retail on Mica and I could imagine how much this would be normally. Also, Mica does show up in BoxyCharm time-to-time as full size and would be interesting to get the full-size of this in that box because…the only problem I have with this version from Ipsy is that it’s hard to reach in and get the product! When you open it, it pretty much dips into it and it’s hard to do it with the finger so I grab one of my smaller shadow brushes, I think it’s the Bare Minerals one that Mommy Gondras gave me or the Urban Decay one from the Ammo pallet I got when it was discounted, still decided to use that brush to get the product and it works well but you need to swipe it a few times to get it on the brush. I do like how it holds my shadows for hours! I did find it interesting how some people found a black spot or two in their sample of this but me nope! I understand how bad and scary that could be but mine was lucky! I hope I get more eye primers like this as sample sizes because it shows me what brands do make them and let you experiment!

Foundation Primers by NYX, Smashbox, and Rimmel! It seems that lately I’ve been experimenting with new foundation primers because it costs too much to buy the Ulta Matte Prime and decided to branch out a little. Plus, there are times where some locations sell out of the Ulta Matte Prime even during sales when they do their special buy one get one half off or buy two get two free, even the $5 sale they had in November, still it costs a bit much! I started to try out with NYX’s eye primer which is a smaller version but it did a pretty good job in holding my foundation. I didn’t like how greasy it kind of felt and even though it was good for my skin-type, I kind of felt it a little itchy at certain points of the day and of course ran out a little too quickly. Then of course, I did try out the Stay Matte one from Rimmel! This one was something I saw how people liked it! It felt smooth on my face despite it being a little heavier and it felt cool while applying it! As in, it didn’t burn or anything, I can see why people liked this since it doesn’t break anyone out and good for sensitive skin as well. Plus, it doesn’t cost as much as the NYX one which that one was $13 according to Ulta and the RImmel one is $7 at CVS, not sure if Ulta locations near me carry the RImmel one but glad to see that I can get a cheaper option than the Ulta Matte Prime. Now onto the Smashbox one! I got this in my June Ipsy like a lot of Ipsters! If you saw my post of what I got, I was skeptical and did my research and was glad to see that it was for my skin-type since I did back out from getting the starter kit that had this and didn’t want to risk my skin! I did try it out and enjoyed the feeling! For a $36 primer, I liked how it did help blend everything in and it was very convenient since some people do have oily skin around this time of year and glad Ipsy had it. I may get the starter kit if it still exists if I wanted to use the primer again but I will be sticking to Rimmel since I do like how it stays put and doesn’t feel itchy or doesn’t burn like most facial products do.

Rob Scheppy for ‘Tini Beauty Pallet! Now onto the real beauty products and this one has been a favorite ever since I tried a sample through Ipsy and that is the Rob Scheppy for ‘Tini Beauty shadow pallet! For anyone who doesn’t know who Rob Scheppy, which I did a little research, he is the make up artist for the Cardatians and he did start making his pallet for ‘Tini beauty this year. I didn’t know what ‘Tini Beauty was until YouTuber talked about getting some items with points and noticed that some of the make up oproducts are named after bar names and Ipsters got samples of Pearl Fizz. I was happy that the full pallet was up for an Ipsy Me offer and it contains eight shadows which I used this pallet to create the eye look for my ice trainer cosplay for Omni. I used the four middle shades to have a nice frosted look and man it looked good! I will use this time to time for smoky looks whenever I feel like it but this is a cosplay pallet that I will be using for my ice trainer!

Provaclips in Kiss Fatale by Rimmel! Another cosplay make up item that I used with my ice trainer cosplay and that is the Provaclips in Kiss Fatale! I love this since I got Kiss Me You Fool from the same line and thought it would be perfect for the deep deep, plum color. I thought it would fit with the whole looking as if I was freezing my butt off in an ice gym and of course needed something that would be long-lasting during the entire convention weekend. I hardly had to re—apply, especially Saturday when we had to run all over the place the most due to the many panels, meeting guests, and the AOT panel! Still felt light and stayed put! Plus, doesn’t cost so much! I would say get one of these by Rimmel since Rimmel is a well-known make up company, heck I still use Captivate Me from the Stay Glossy line.

Ruby Woo by Mac! I got another MAC product and that is the lipstick in Ruby Woo! I heard Grav3yard Girl talk about this one for the longest time and my cat ears were curious as always and picked it up while MAC had their free second day shipping offer and thought I would take a try at it. When I got it, I was surprised that it was packaged pretty well, like a chocolate on a pillow in a hotel! I do use this on top of lip balm because I feel the lipsticks on their own, for that matter any lipstick, feels dry and have to have that lip balm for moisture and feels a lot smoother while applying. I wanted to keep using it as days go on because of how lightweight it felt and it has pretty good staying power while drinking liquids. I will try out other lipsticks but still gotta finish up what I have, which is hard since new items do come out like crazy!

Blush Quad by ELF! I was happy to find out that ELF made a blush pallet and man it’s cheaper than the Lorac one since it is nice and compact, plus it still has the same quality as a higher end product. I do say that don’t have to spend too much to look good! I think I got the one for light skin because it comes in two skin tones, one for light and the other for darker skin and it is easy to apply and blend on the cheek bones. I would say get this pallet if you’re on a budget and it’s available at Target and the ELF website!

Mosaic Highlighter by NYX! Lately I have been into highlighting and I have been looking for more of powder highlighters because there are times when cream ones squeeze out too much and gets all over. I had to toss out the Beauty Crop one since it kept on squeezing so much out. I did like it but I rather use powder ones over creams due to how much more control I can get, especially when it’s in a pallet. This one I found with the help of the lady that worked at Ulta and she shown me the powder illuminators by NYX and this one stuck out the most and got it! It is a mixture of the different highlight colors of gold, silver, and bronze into one and you can mix them together to apply to your cheeks, nose, and around the chin. I do mostly the cheeks and sometimes my nose if I’m feeling it. It is always fun to use because I am not sticking to just one and trying to figure out which one I want to use that day, I can just mix all the glitters together. Plus it’s easy to blend into blush! I want to get some of the other ones since they do have a few others but this one is a staple!

Highlighter Pallet by ELF! This one I got off the ELF website since I can’t find it in stores along with their baked highlighters, which I am interested in trying out. Unlike the NYX powder highlighter I mentioned, this is more of a gel consistency but it comes in a nice, convenient pallet rather than a tube. It is easy to blend as well and tend to stay on pretty well! You get choices from four highlights, I am not sure if you can mix one or more but I do like choosing from more than one. I wish they carry these in Targets so I don’t have to order it when I run out.

Necklace: Harley Quin Bat Symbol! My favorite necklace is the Harley Quin bat symbol pendant since I couldn’t fit the choker, I was glad this one existed since it is more of a chain versus a velvet choker. I wish the chokers weren’t so small at Hot Topic, I mis the belt ones they use for the spike ones but those only come out for the fall and it sucks that happens now. At least this necklace fits and I like how you can adjust it to make it higher or lower on your neck and it has Harley’s logo in the shape of the Batman symbol.

Earrings: Harley Quin Set! Yes, I have to include these! I was also happy to find that earrings were made for Harley Quin, well themed after her and they come with six pairs. The only pair I or pairs I like are the black diamonds and the Jester hats. You know I love Jester characters and it was so cute that they made jester hat earrings for this set and of course can’t be complete without doing the diamond patterns she has on her suit. I wear the black diamonds time to time, or are they the red ones, don’t know, still great ot have this set. The only set that seems to be out of blace is the gun pair earrings. I hardly see Harley carry a gun, it’s always the Joker doing it! Heck, he even has a Saints Row moment in the Suicide Club animated movie carrying a gun in hand! I don’t think I will wear the gun pair, I think I will use the backings as extra ones in case I lost one like one night with my jester hat pair and did have to get another pack as a back up. I hope to find more Harley stuff in the future.

I think that is about it for these favorites! Will definitely and try and do that one post about permanent make up this coming week. Stay tuned!

Favorites Time: January and February 2015!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! February is about to draw to a close and you know what that means! Time for my faves of January and February 2015! Man, I have a lot of things to cover including a non-fave, which I should start with that!

 

Non-Fave: Pur Lis Glitter Flash Tattoos! OMG! These sucked and they were the Pur Lis Flash Glitter Tattoos from the January BoxyCharm because they caused my skin to react weird when I decided to try it out on my right wrist and then did it on my left upper arm. I did follow most of the directions by doing the water after putting it down and it transferred well but I didn’t know I had to let it set dry afterwards  through the air. I can’t read directions and they didn’t post the items for review until two weeks after I tried them. Plus all thanks to my old rash from Lush a few years ago it had an allergic reaction to my skin. I can see why I don’t use any body glitter since it has a weird reaction on my lower arms. My upper arm nothing happened except that it peeled! Even the one on my wrist peeled but not as badly as the upper arm one. I threw these away because of how bad my skin reacted and not only that they didn’t remove well, I did the old alcohol removal trick and it doesn’t work well, it made my skin worse. I definitely won’t buy these at all and it’s not worth the price, especially if you have sensitive skin like I do. I am hoping BoxyCharm doesn’t send these again if they get any other designs, if I get them again, I may give them away or swap them to someone.

 

Bath and Body Works: Body Butter in Madagascar Vanilla! First beauty item is a body item and that is the Bath and Body Works body butters in Madagascar Vanilla! I was looking for body butters since I was running low on the Ayres Patagonia one I received through Ipsy and I didn’t want to buy the full size since it might be pricey and decided to look around in Bath and Body Works in the Volusia Mall and they were having a sale on some of their items for 75% off and this was in that display and I loved the scent! I almost got the Shea one since that smelled sweet but decided to stick with the sale display with this one and got two of them! What I like about this scent is that it’s not overbearing like most vanilla scents are by some companies and with vanilla anything by Bath and Body they deliver very good vanilla smells! I still love the Vanilla Bean Noel from Christmas and did like the Warm Vanilla Sugar as well. I am kind of sad that they don’t have the tubs of the body butters now, which sucks and it’s easy for me to get it out, but I may check out the Body Shop’s brand of body butters since I heard good things about those and I know Pacifica makes some. Will have to check them out!

 

  1. L. F.: Clear Brow Gel and Mascara! Now a newer product to my collection and to use to get ready for the job search routine and that is the E. L. F. mascara and clear brow gel! I was turned onto this all thanks to a former make up artist who has a lot of knowledge in putting it on as a blind person and she gave me pointers and helped out in finding things and this was one of them. We were originally looking for the Maybelline clear mascara but the WalMart we were at sold out or didn’t exactly have it, forgot the reason, but we did find this in the E. L. F. section while looking for the right blush for my Professional Look Kit! What I like about this is that it’s double ended which there is one side for brows and the other side for lashes and I marked the lashes side to help me know which end was what. With this thing, it does help with just using the clear gel for the brows than wrestling with the question of “Which shade is the best for my brows?” Which I notice a lot of YouTubers wrestle which shade is best for them. I would say get this for that and the lashes part does save you from having black smudges all over and you don’t have black dots on your shadow when you’re done. Trust me, I tend to get that time to time if I miss my lashes!

 

Almay: Bold Nudes for Green Eyes! Next is a newer Almay Product for my Professional Look Kit and it is by my fave make up company and that is Almay! IIt’s the Bold Nudes eye shadow pallet for the green eyes. I haven’t gotten any of the eye shadow pallets in a long time since I got the smoke trio for hazel eyes a while back and still have that and just tossed the green eyes one since that was running out in the crease and brow part and glad to get back into it with this one. A great way of going with a nice eye look is through the neutrals and this little pallet is perfect for that due to how easy it is to have the right shades for your eyes. I like how it goes from a taupe, to a blue grey, to a lighter grey for the brow and it does lighten the gem green in mye eyes since it does mix with a cobalt in them. I will go for hazel for the weekends or the days I will be with Gondras, this one is staying with my little kit!

 

LA Color: Warm Berry Blush!  On a recreation trip, I stopped by a Family Dollar and wanted to see if they have make up items while looking for my fave baby wipes for make up cleaning. I found the brand LA color and I heard about these guys through a videos and did get a mascara by them, it is pretty good but not on the faves list, and found this blush and it’s in the color Warm Berry. It gives off a nice berry glow like my Berry Glow cream blush by Ulta and it is pretty pigmented, which I need to really blend this into my skin or it will make it look like I have tons of it on. I am hoping I can find this in my Family Dollars near me.

 

Mac: Cream Cup, Cream in Your Coffee, and Danty!  Finally added to the list, some Mac products! I did mention in my New Haul of 2015 Haul that I was slowly getting into Mac products! I do have the Pet Me Please lipstick from the Alluring Aquatics collection from last summer and now I have a total of four items but three made it to this list. I did mention I got Gleeful but haven’t used that much to count as a favorite but I did use the other three a bit more. Dainty is a pink blush that I heard about through Coffee Break With Dani and I like it! It goes on pretty well and it does blend very well. I know the price is a bit up there but it is in the same price as a Tart blush and it’s pretty worth it! I know this will be re-purchased and so with the two lipsticks on here, Cream Cup and Cream In Your Coffee! All thanks to Make Up By Tiffany D and Color Swept Beauty, I had to pick these up and they were separate buys since tend to buy Mac items one at a time and was glad to get my paws on these. I do love both colors, which Cream Cup is a pinkish nude while Coffee is more of a brownish one. I find it funny that Coffee was the more popular one and I had to wait until they had to restock on it and when I went to see if they got itt in, it was the last one that Friday! I was like, “Give it! Give it!” I was glad that I did get it and I do love these both! It was funny that the next day when I went back for Gleeful, the girl was like “I knew you would be back for Gleeful!” Who knows, it will be on the next list. I did almost leaned towards Diva as well, but that is on the maybe list for now! But these three are my fave! Especially with how great the two lipsticks being so creamy and they go on very smoothly, even more when there’s a lip balm!

 

Rimmel: Glam Rock Mascara and Captivating Lip Gloss! Next are products by Rimmel and they are the Rock Glam Mascara from the Scandaleyes line and the lip gloss in Captivating. When I first got the Glam Rock mascara, I wanted to take a try at the mascaras by Rimmel since so many people love them and I already love their lip products and I did have an eye trio by them a long time ago and now using their nail top coat on top of that. I was originally looking for the newest one, the Rockin Curves one, but couldn’t find it and got this one and man it feels awesome! My lashes do give a bit of a spike look from what I felt but they do curl very nicely with this mascara! It feels as light as the Rockin Curves one and curls pretty nicely with that too, but I would say the Glam Rock one got my vote as fave this month. The Captivating lip gloss is also another item in my Professional Look Kit and I love it! It’s a maroo colored lip gloss and it just feels pretty light, not too heavy or cakey, just nice! I may have to get more of this one and all thanks to this lip gloss it has been getting me more into red lips as I get more lip stuff. I am still looking for the Provacalips since Young Wild and Polished did a review on them and want to find them myself.

 

Jessica Simpson Perfume: Signature! Stop the presses! I finally got my paws on the Jessica Simpson Signature perfume! It made me happy since I did want this one for Christmas and didn’t get it and couldn’t find it until I got it as a Valentine’s Day gift from my dad. It is so gorgeous as a scent! It is not too heavy on the floral like most scents and it has a bit of an earthy sweet if that makes any sense! When I wore this one day my mom thought I was wearing potpourri as a scent but I told her it was the Signature perfume and she liked it! It can be confusing but it so amazing! Loving it!

 

Harley Quin Perfume! I had to mention this one on here because it became an all time fave scent and was wondering, “Hot Topic why didn’t you make this before!?” It is their Harley Quin perfume that they started making this year! Apparently, Hot Topic has been going a bit Harley crazy and they even have their own clothing line revolving around her called Harlene. I didn’t get any of it knowing that my Amazonian build won’t fit the corsets, the cardigan, nor tops, I would like to point out two years ago on my 27th birthday when a Harley top stopped at my shoulders over my head. I wasn’t out of hope when I found out that the Volusia location did carry the perfume when Gondras mentioned it while he visited. I knew I had to find it and glad it wasn’t exclusive to the the site! This scent is OMG amazing! It sprays on musky and then it gradually gets sweeter and I can’t stop smelling it! Gondras made a joke that they probably put Smilex in it and well I wouldn’t care if they did because this perfume is addicting and makes me a happy kitty! I have to keep myself from reaching for it when I brought it home because I love it so! I would say to check this out whenever you get the chance!

 

Fave Snack: Reese’s Hearts! I have to mention these because I have to keep myself from binging on them like crazy! They are the Reese’s Valentine’s Hearts that they always bring every year and they still taste as good and I feel like since they made them bigger, they taste a lot better! I have to keep myself from binging on these but when Valentine’s, Easter, and Christmas come around, chocolate is my major kryptonite, especially Reese’s and Hersheys! Oh yeah, and Ghiradelli!

 

Fave Hair Product: Eva NYC Hungry Hair Oil! I almost forgot one item and that is my fave hair product and that is the Eva NYC Hungry Hair Oil that came in the December BoxyCharm! When I started using this item I was happy to use it since it kept my hair soft, especially after coming home from Daytona and opening it with fresh highlights in my hair. The oil smells like vanilla and it is very moisturizing and it did last me pretty long for its size. I did get the actual bottle, even though it was the same size as the sample since that seems to be the full size, which doesn’t make sense, but been loving it! Looks like I found my fave hair item from a subscription box!

 

Fave Song: “Killing Loneliness” by HIM and “Blank Space” by Taylor Swift! I know ::dun dun dunnnn!” I usually go for the rock stuff but ever since I sang “Blank Space” with two of my other girlfriends in Daytona, I like it! It is on my IPad, which I recently got and love, and my IPhone, that it does get stuck in my head. Hell, I even sang along with it a tiny bit in Ulta while they played it last Tuesday! I was resisting but couldn’t help it! And the other song, I only used to like one song by HIM, which I forgot the title, but when I heard Vivi sing this on Rock Band this past weekend, my ears perked up and had to ask what it was and Gondras told me. Then got clicking on Itunes! I love orchestraic sounding rock songs and this song is really beautiful with the violin, piano, and guitar, couldn’t help it! I even liked how the singer sings it, you know he was writing it from his lonely soul! Tragic I know!

 

Well, that is it for this faves post! What is next? Still will do the plushie thing of course and coming soon will the start of my spotlights on Anime Festival Orlando and will be bringing back the Anime in Transmedia posts since it would be right with two of the guests at AFO to bring this back for the next couple of months and doing them on three of the biggest series, Slayers, Yu-gi-oh, and Pokemon. Stay tuned!
