Decided to get out of my comfort zone in CVS yesterday and buy a product I often neglect…good ol’ lipstick. I have never considered myself much of a lipstick girl but I have lusted after MAC’s Candy Yum Yum for many months now. However I wasn’t ready to commit to the $18 price tag just yet…baby steps! So I opted for a dupe instead and am quite satisfied indeed. What do y’all think? The shade is Rose Hip by Milani. ??
Hey y’all! Long time no blog. I know this is everyone’s excuse but I have been so crazy busy! Between work, the class I picked up, and life I just haven’t had time to post anything for you dolls. However, today I have something I think is both interesting and exciting to share with you. One of the things I had the opportunity to do during my action packed weekend was voluteer my time as a model at a makeup academy here in Dallas. It was an awesome experience and I would definitely do it again! The class I modeled for was called The Makeup Experience. It is a two day class for beginning Makeup Artists offered at Elan Makeup Studio . The class covers basic makeup application, corrective techniques, product knowledge, ect. If you live in or are visiting the Dallas area and are interested in the course please check out their website at elanmakeup.com. If you are interested in modeling you can check them out on Facebook and Twitter as well; I also received a $100 gift certificate for products of my choice from the studio! I have posted a couple of photos below from my two days at Elan. My makeup came out beautiful and the intstructor and students were very friendly and personable! It was such a joy to be around like-minded people who love makeup and the beauty industry as much as I do.
Hey y’all! So I am super excited that I was nominated for a Liebster Award! If you don’t know about the award, it’s basically a chance for “new” bloggers to gain a bit of exposure and network with other bloggers. I was nominated by Ashley @ All That Glitters. If you haven’t read her blog then get there now…she is amazing! Anyway I have listed the rules below and nominated 10 of my fellow bloggers. It is supposed to be 11 but it was hard for me to find others with under 200 followers! Some of you ladies are really loved and that is fantastic! If you think of an 11th nominee for me or if you yourself would like my 11th slot…please comment below! Hope everyone is having a great day!
If you are nominated and choose to accept, here are the steps you must follow:
– Tell 11 things about yourself
– Answer 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you
– Come up with 11 questions for the bloggers you wish to nominate
– Nominate 11 bloggers (Remember: Under 200 followers!)
– Notify them that they have been nominated!
11. Favorite social pastime?

Hola amigos! Sorry that I didn’t get a post up for you guys sooner. I went to Prime Bar last night in the Uptown Dallas area and it was an ok experience. The music was pretty good but it was a bit too crowded for my taste. Not some place I would recommend if you want to mingle with people or shake your booty on the dance floor…lol. Also, the drinks are over priced! I know we are in a recession but $9 for a whiskey sour! ? All in all not some place that gets the Girl Friday seal of approval. If you visit Dallas definitely check out some of Uptown’s other offerings. There is a bar around the corner called The Concrete Cowboy and I haven’t been but it looked like a lot more fun than Prime Bar. Could be in my next review! Stay tuned!
