Graphite Nails

I always forget to take pictures of my nails, so while I was photographing some other stuff for the blog I snapped a couple of photos real quick. This is LA Girl Metal nail polish in the color Graphite. I picked this up for 99 cents at a little cheapy typical mall store a week or so ago.

Day 7. One Favorite Of Each: lipstick, lipgloss, eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner, blush, contour

Weekly Recap

So I figured I would try to do weekly recaps on this blog. I may not end up doing them every single week it will just depend on how busy I am. The content will vary but generally cover about the same things. That being said here it goes!

This past week was the first week of the quarter, and I've been pretty sick so I haven't had much spare time to blog. I spent most of the week sleeping and blowing my nose. I hardly wore any makeup if any, didn't bother with perfume or lotion most days because I was lazy/in a rush/couldn't smell it, and kept my nails pretty basic. I pretty much just sported a ponytail, eyeliner, and a pullover sweatshirt if I had to go out. To continue my recovery I'm not doing much as far as going out for the weekend. Tomorrow I'm making myself wake up at a decent hour (I woke up at 1 today) and go to the library to study. All week I've pretty much been dreaming about summer, what I'll wear, what I'll smell like, what I'll do, etc etc. Guess I'm done with the rain.

March Empties

Some months I go through alot of makeup/beauty related products and then sometimes it'll be months before a finish even one product. Within this last month or so I feel like I've finished off everything and the amount of empties I have is pretty unusual. 

Makeup Challenge Day 6

Day 6. Six Favorite Makeup Brands

I know I've skipped a gazillion days but whatever. I haven't tried TONS of brands, and from the brands I haven't tried a ton of their products. So fair warning. Alot of these choices will be based on one product or two from the brand which I know isn't saying I know the whole brand but at this point I don't know any brand through and through.

Purple and Black Striped Tips

Spring Break

Hey guys. Today is the last day of my Spring Break and lemme tell you I thought I would be blogging alot more over my break. The combination of relaxing, being sick, allergies starting, extra shifts coming up, and  most importantly - hanging out and having fun, took up more time than I thought it would. I was pleasantly surprised by how I was able to stay busy but still relaxed during this break. I did some shopping and overall had a really good break. I definitely have some posts lined up for nails, hauls, empties, and a few other things.

Orly Oh Cabana Boy

On Monday I painted my nails this bright pink for when I went to see Feed Me, and I haven't been able to stop staring at my nails since. This nail polish has held up really well, and today (Friday) is the first day that I've noticed any major chips.

Makeup Challenge Day 3

Day 3. Three Makeup Products You Wish You Had

Mac Party Parrot

Feed Me

Photo Cred
So its tradition that my friend Marissa and I celebrate the end of each quarter by going out and doing something fun, and Feed Me just so happened to be playing at the Showbox the night of my last final. The venue probably wasn't the best for it (it was super packed and not nearly enough room to dance) but we had a blast anyways.

Feed Me: Kerri

So heres my crazy face. I feel like Marissa's eyeshadow actually turned out better than mine, which was surprising and a little bit of a bummer haha (I'm selfish I know). I really need a better pink eyeshadow that won't just blend off when I try to add a crease color. Next time I might try doing my crease color first and then adding the lid color, or maybe if I'm lucky I'll pick up Makeup Forever's neon pink eyeshadow (I can dream right)

Feed Me: Marissa

I was a little nervous doing Marissa's eye makeup. While I'm comfortable doing my own makeup - Marissa has totally different coloring than I do and her eyes are different too (hello I'm half asian). Part of me was worried that she would end up looking like a clown/hating it, but in the end it was definitely worth the risk because we both really liked how it turned out. I really enjoyed seeing her wear bright eyeshadow and huge lashes because she usually sticks to subtle neutral colors and I bought those lashes for myself but they looked awful on me haha.

FOTD: Studying for finals.

This week was the last week of the quarter - and while most people have their finals spread out throughout next week, I have two Saturday, and one on Monday. Needless to say I feel like I've been drowning in studying. After work this morning, I came home and took a shower so that I could actually get ready for the rest of the day. I wanted to do something different than my everyday makeup, but I didn't want to spend a lot of time on my makeup today either. While looking through my stash I realized that I've had the Urban Decay Deluxe Palette for almost 2 years and I've never used the shade Honey, so I decided to base a look around that. I put the look together pretty quickly, I probably should have skipped the lashes but owell!

Gradient Nails

So I'm just going to outright say the pictures in this post are pretty terrible and I know it. I wanted to get some pictures of my nails before they started to chip cause the tips are already starting to wear, but unfortunately its dark out and the lighting in my apartment is complete garbage. I half considered not posting these at all cause I'm embarrassed of how bad the pictures look. Which is sad considering I really like the nails in real life. But anyways...

I know this picture is blurry but this is the most accurate representation of what the nails look like in real life.
