decisions decisions

so i purchased the SOLIA flat iron on thursday. cannot wait for it to come in! i miss straightening my hair.
today my boyfriend and i are going out to dinner in Burbank because it is our 7 months. [technically it's tomorrow but we can't really celebrate it on easter]
and i have to do my hair, since i have while jungle curly hair. i'm going to straighten it then curl it. i usually curl with a flat iron but since its broken and now yanks at my hair, i'm just going to straighten my hair with it. i will settle for the cheap little curling iron i have.
i haven't decided how i want to to my make up. BUT I WILL DO A TUTORIAL ON THE HAIR AND MAKE UP. and possibly and OUTFIT OF THE NIGHT
i've been looking online for some ideas, and i came across some very great looks that were on kim kardashian, megan fox, and taylorswift. i haven't decided which one i want to go with.
not sure if i want dramatic eyes and soft lip, or soft eyes and dramatic lip.

as for an outfit, i will definitely be wearing tights. maybe all black?
i guess i have to rumage through my closet and find something suitable for my taste.
i hardly ever get the chance to get all fancied up so when i go on these dates with my boyfriend, i like to go all out. haha
i will definitely be posting pictures and videos of the finished look.

wish me luck!

Solia Tourmaline Ceramice Ion Flat Iron

i'm very much leaning towards a Solia Tourmaline Ceramic Ion Flat Iron (1-1/4") plus free heat proof pouch
its 79.99 and had very good reviews. its 1 1/4 inch. my last flat iron was 1 inch and it straighten and curled wonderfully. does you think a slightly bigger plate size would effect it's curling abilities? i really love the way my hair looks when i curl it with a flat iron, so a flat iron that can curl is a MUST.
let me know what you guys think, and if you own this flat iron PLEASE let me know what you think about it! i want to hear your opinions!
picking the best flat iron is important to me because i have very curly hair, and a lot of it. [as you have seen in my videos lol]
uhmmmmm yeah, so let me know what you guys think, and please feel free to recommend any other brands.
thanks guys

love ya <3

Fashion: Eyelet Mesh Trim Dress

saw this dress on the forever21 website and fell in love! it's so cute! i love clothes that have a unique look to them. i love the simplicity of this dress and how you can dress it up or dress it down.
for example, if you wanted to dress it up, you can wear solid sheer or opaque tights. OR lace tights (which i love and own). with some heels. i would go with an ankle bootie heel. and if its cold out, a leather jacket on top.

haha i'm getting excited. hope you guys enjoyed my little rant about my love for this dress :D

my flat iron broke :[

so last night after i got home from the movie theater (watched She's Out Of My League), my boyfriend and little brother both got REALLY sick. So as i was taking care of my little brother, i heard a loud crash or something. when i finally get my brother to bed, i go to my room and see that it was my flat iron that fell and crashed into the metal rail of my bed. My boyfriend's dog and tripped over the wire.
i was so sad! i loved that flat iron! it was a pink ISO turbo, i got it at the mall when i was 17 for 100$. The lady told me it had a lifetime warranty, buuuuuuuut she lied because the papers inside said it was only 1 year warranty. so basically i'm flat iron-less. and i have REALLY long, curly hair. and i have A LOT of hair.
so now i'm deciding what flat iron i should buy on Folica.com. i was thinking about getting a CHI because everyone seems to love it and it's only $69.95 on the website. What do you guys suggest?
do you think the CHI is good? or the Solia? i'm torn. i've heard so many things about the CHI, and $69 seems like a great price for a flat iron with such a GREAT reputation.
oh and i want something that will curl my hair too. i loved curling, and waving my hair with my ISO. Let me know what you guys think!
thanks! :D

Review: Pond's Dry Skin Cream

Hey guys! This is my 3rd review and it is on a very well known moisturizer.
I have been using this for about 2-3 months now, and before that i was using Olay beauty liquid which was okay.

I actually first tried this product when i was about 14 or 15. I used to get ready for school at my grandmas house and she had this moisturizer. haha!
anyway, back to the review.
So, i'll start off with saying that i really do like this product. i love the texture of it. it's very thick, which i like. i hate watery moisturizers. i've had oily skin for most of my life but had recently noticed a change in my skin. i would say it's more combination type, but i have dry spots on my chin, nose and forehead. This product really helps moisturize those areas.
a lot of product comes in the jar and i bought it for about $4! compared to the $8-$10 products i had considered buying. i really have no bad things to say about this product. It's a classic!

Review: Revlon Photo Ready Foundation

When this first came out, i really wanted to try it out. I was already using Revlon Colorstay foundation and i loved it. So when i went out to buy another Colorstay, i saw that it was buy one get one free on all revlon products. So i picked up the PhotoReady foundation in vanilla. (i wear 150 buff in Colorstay).

PUMP! definitely a pro. foundations with pumps make life easier and less messy.
the coverage is pretty good. i would say medium coverage but definitely buildable.
and it does give your face a nice subtle glow.
SPF 20

i have oily/combination skin and this foundation made some part of my skin dry and flakey.
it's not really a foundation for flash photography. the spf 20 reflects the light and can make you look white.

so as you can see, i like this product more than i dislike it. haha if that makes any sense.
although, i love my colorstay foundation more, it is a good foundation when i want something different.
i wouldn't recommend you rush out of the house to get it, but if you want to try i would say go for it! all skins types are different and this foundation might be the perfect one for you :D

Review: Rimmel Glam Eyes Mascara

Okay so first off let me say that this is my FAVORITE mascara!
i've been using it for about a year now, on and off haha.
i've switched between glam eyes and lashblast all year and i have to this is so much better.

Application: the want is very easy to use. it's small and flexible and coats every lash. i have yet to notice any clumping and it does not flake on me.

i naturally have long curly lashes, so when i look for mascara, i look for volume and this mascara gives me the greatest volume. my friends sometimes as me if i am wearing false eyelashes.

because of the brush, it seperates lashes and makes them very defined without looking like spider legs. i am in love with this mascara and it is very inexpensive, so i would definitely recommend it!


I started a blog!

hey guys! i made a blog, just to put simple make up tips and tricks.
also i will be putting reviews up on here :]
and possibly some random posts!
so yessss
hope you guys like it!
