Geo Princess Mimi Chocolate Brown Review.

Yes, I am a Princess Mimi junkie. I now have three of four colors from the series but I have told myself that I have to stop. The reason for my insanity is that the lenses are still $18 with free shipping at Fobby Barbie, and I really cannot turn down a deal like that. I promise that if I do anymore lens reviews they won't be from this series, but bear with me as I fawn over these for a bit.

About two weeks ago I received my Princess Mimi/Bambi in Chocolate Brown from Fobby Barbie. As usual, the shipping was extremely fast and there were no problems with the ordering process or the lenses themselves.

With flash (excuse my peeling lashes, I was trying to layer them)

An Amazing Gift.

My boyfriend comes over whenever he can to spend time with me and a few weekends ago he said he had a surprise for me. I had no idea what to expect, but it turned out to be a laptop. I've been using what used to be the family computer and it is painfully obsolete. It has a dial-up jack. My boyfriend saw my frustration and as he is not only a techie, but the sweetest person in the world he went to get me a new one.

I put stickers from Uwajimaya on it.


he also brought me a wireless mouse, isn't that sweet?

It's perfect. Light, sleek, fast, and with lots of features and space. It's made things so much easier and I just wanted to share my delight.

Thanks ♥

My Final Verdict on Generic eBay Lashes.

Ebay Eyelashes seem like an amazing deal if you have a tight makeup budget. You can get as many as 100 pairs at a time and stay well under $20. Of course they aren't the best quality, but it's good to try out cheaper products to see if the added cost is worth it.

Different types of eye makeup.

I've been looking at a lot of pictures lately and I figured I'd share some different styles of makeup that I like.

Just some quick pictures!

I was bored at home today and everyone was busy, but I did my makeup anyway and managed to get out for a bit. Here are some photos I took.

My skin it still pretty broken out and I'm trying to find the light I look best in (that doesn't involve hogging the bathroom). But I like this makeup much better than the last style I tried. I think that I'm going to stop using bottom lashes until I can get my hands on some proper ones.

My hair styling skills are atrocious. I need hair bootcamp or something.

Thanks for reading! That's all for now ♥

Weight Loss and Trying Not to Overdo It (Warning: May Get Preachy)

I really want to share my current struggle with my weight. I read about girls desperately trying to lose weight and even starving themselves all the time and in some ways I admire their dedication. I also think that there is a place of compromise for everyone, between eating heartily and losing weight slowly and starving yourself with ridiculous diets.

So last week when I went to PAX I pretty much ruined a month's worth of dieting and exercise by eating whatever I wanted without even paying attention to how much or how bad it was. The Washington State Convention Center is downtown and has a Taco Del Mar and a Cheesecake factory in the same building. I had never been to a Cheesecake factory, and when I looked at the menu I was super pleased but THE CALORIES.  My Boyfriend and I shared an appetizer that was over 2000 calories and I didn't even bother looking at the nutritional value for me entree.

Gal Progress Post ♥

I've been working with trying to make my upper lashes work as lower lashes and I think I'm going in the right direction. I feel like I lost some of the sweetness of the past look, but I also think I prefer this look a little more. I used grey/silver instead of pink and obviously green lenses completely change how my face gets pulled together.

E.L.F. Blush and Compact Review.

I have to start out this post by saying that I am very displeased with E.L.F. when it comes to shipping. I think that the only reason they can get by with such low prices is that they hike up the price of shipping a ton. I paid a total of $10.95, I had a coupon for 50% so the already inexpensive things I bought only came to about 4 dollars and then I paid $7.00 for standard shipping. This wouldn't be incredible insane except for the fact that their warehouse is in the country and my order took a week to get to me. If you need items fast, this is not the place to order from. Next day shipping is over $60!
