Juicy Couture Perfume Giveaway

Special thanks goes out to: 
I highly suggest that you visit before or after you are done entering the RC below. They have plenty of valuable information and giveaways to boot! 
Sponsored By: Beautyanhomedecor
Review & Giveaway By: Beautiful Incentives

If you are anything like me then you have your favorite scent. You probably have your date night scent, your home scent, your work scent and so on. They might even be the same scent. I know I love a little something different every once in a while and I can't wait to see who the lucky winner of this perfume will be. GOOD LUCK!

I haven't been able to try many top of the line perfumes in my life time, but when I get the chance, it is like early Christmas to me. Especially when they come in absolutely gorgeous bottles that I can display on my dresser like they are prized works of art. I've only tried one other high end brand and I can say the bottle was extremely boring compared to this one.

Daily Makeup Routine

What is your daily makeup routine like? Since I go to school full time I tone my makeup way down, usually just foundation, powder, and mascara. When I go to work I have more time to do my makeup, so I usually do eyeshadow, bronzer, blush, and even eyeliner on top of my daily routine.

To start my daily routine I cleanse my face with Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Wash, which I got to try thanks to influenster! I love how refreshing this feels, my face feels soft and clean. It also smells delicious! I then move onto moisturizing, priming, apply foundation, powder, blush, and bronzer to my face.

CoverGirl Flamed Out Mascara

If I was stranded on an island the one makeup product that I couldn't live without would have to be mascara! I refuse to leave the house without it. I've tried so many different brands from drugstore to highend and recently I've found one that I love.

I've recently found the CoverGirl Flamed Out Mascara in water resistant and I was hesitant since it isn't waterproof and CoverGirl isn't highly regarded concerning their mascaras. While I won't wear this mascara swimming I've had no issues with it running if I happen to get a little water on it. Ahem, that does not mean I'm going to be out dancing in the rain with this mascara which I love doing. WINTER IS COMING!!!

iFabbo SF Con!

So I recently had a chance to go to the iFabbo blogging conference in San Francisco on October 12 and I have to say it was awesome! My best friend and I won tickets from the awesome Marlena at Makeup Geek. The day started a little crazy as we live 2:30 hours away and we woke up late. After waking up at 5:22 we were in a mad dash to get ready, we woke up 22 minutes after we were supposed to leave. We quickly raced through the house to brush our teeth, change our clothes, and grab everything for doing our makeup once we got there; all while trying so hard not to wake up the children that refused to go to bed until 1:30 am. If you are parents you understand how important this last step is!

Being silly with my best friend!
We were finally on the road! Chugging our energy drinks just to stay awake while driving in the early morning and singing to our favorite songs on the radio. I was so excited once I saw the Bay Bridge! It was going to be my first time driving on the new bridge! I lived in San Francisco for two years while going to college and I can say I miss it. We arrived at the parking garage ahead of time at 7:45am thanks to my lead foot and were in a mad dash to apply our makeup in the darkly lit car. I had my 4 different makeup brushes out-foundation, powder, blush, and bronzer and kept dropping them. Oh how I longed for just one do it all brush. I threw on some navy blue eyeliner to go with my eyes and called it good enough. Since we woke up late, I was unable to straighten my hair and since it was up the day before that was the only option I had remaining.

Zoya Pixie Dust Review

It's almost spring time and you know what that means? Well, it doesn't really mean anything but I'm using it as an excuse to polish my nails all the time with Zoya! I've recently had the opportunity to fall in love with Zoya's Pixie Dust line. For those of you who haven't heard of it, it is a matte, textured, sparkly nail polish. The colors are very muted down and are extremely beautiful. I'm in love with the fact that all of the colors are appropriate to wear to work
For those of you who have never heard of textured nail polish, you are not alone. This is the first time I have tried textured nail polish and it definitely won't be my last. Normally having a bump on my nails drives me crazy, but the nail polish isn't like that. Yes, you can feel it, but it isn't extremely noticeable and the color's are so worth it. I love sparkly nails!

Zoya Ornate Review

Zoya Ornate Holiday Winter Nail Polish Collection Image
As you guys know I'm totally into makeup and I'm finally getting into nail polish! I mean it's another great way to express my individuality. Recently, I had the chance to try out Zoya's winter nail polish line Ornate. Ornate featured some extremely beautiful glittery colors including; Storm (black), Blaze (red), Aurora (purple), Logan (green), Ziv (gold), and Electra (silver). I have to say I think these colors are perfect for winter.

This was the first time I've ever tried Zoya nail polishes and it most certainly will not be my last time. These polishes go on really smooth. They take three coats with the exception of Electra which needs at least four coats as it is just a clear base with glitter. Electra looks great when applied over another color.

I love how creamy the formula is, it's not too thick or thin. The brush also works pretty well. Each polish retails for $8 and I have to say this polish is salon quality! It's just awesome and worth it. So much better than the brand I recently tried that was $14 and didn't go on smooth.

My favorite colors are hard to decide. Ziv is my favorite to apply. It doesn't contain any glitter so it's application is much easier. Blaze and Aurora are my favorite color wise! Red and purple are my favorite colors and I absolutely love the colors on my nails! Since it was Christmas recently I did sport Blaze on my nails with Logan as an accent nail. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures. I think these polishes dry in the average amount of time.
Please excuse the uneven nails! This does not have a base or top coat.

I'm very sensitive to scents and I'm happy to report that these did not give me a headache. Overall I am very fond of Zoya and I love their color selection. If you haven't checked out their site you are missing out. They even have spoons which are very cheap and let you see the color before buying the whole bottle.
