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.
