Quickie update

I just wanted to pop in to say hi. I have been fighting with a few annoyances (and one good thing) that stopped me from bothering with makeup and blogging. Two Saturdays ago, I had a weird allergic reaction kinda thing that I was fighting with all week so I just didn't have it in me to do any makeup or wear perfume or even dress appropriately for life. It was horrible.

This past weekend I went to my Uncle's camp and spent the weekend out in the sun, away from civilization, and drinking. It was great! So that's why once I started feeling better I still hadn't posted anything. And now because I was out in the sun for so long, I have a slight sunburn and a tan. Crazy! Hopefully I will get back in the swing of things again real soon. I will probably have a post up later this week about something I have been obsessed with lately.

P.S. I am also really excited that I will be getting (and reviewing) my first ever Fortune Cookie Soap Box in the mail soon because my lovely brother got me a year of them for my birthday!

How was your past week? Did you do anything fun?
Do you enjoy the great outdoors or do you like staying inside?

One Minute Reviews - Tom Ford Black Orchid

Oh my! *swoon* That was my exact reaction when I sprayed this on my body. There is no other way to react to this scent. Seriously! It is the embodiment of cool, grownup, sexy, elegant, sophisticated.

Notes : Bergamot, Citrus, Mandarin, Black Gardenia, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Lotus Wood, Orchid, Spicy Floral Accord, Orchid (Tom Ford Black Accord), Patchouli, Sandalwood, Incense, Vanilla.

I am so in love. Its spicy; the perfect kind of floral. It smells grown-up but this isn't a powdery old lady scent. This just oozes sexy. Like that women in the old black and white films. Its powerful and playful. I mean, if this was a person I might have to seriously consider marrying it! (I feel so sophisticated sitting here eating my easy mac and watching Sin City.)

FOTD : Birthday Makup - 7/31/2014

Today is the day I turn 25. When I was younger 25 was the age I always thought was the greatest. You had all your shit together, you had a job you enjoyed (at a coffee place), a boyfriend (starving artist type), a cellphone (?), and just generally had a say over what you did.This is mostly true. I have a job that I mostly enjoy, just not at a coffee shop. I don't have a boyfriend, but I do have a lovely husband that I love with all of my heart. I do have a cellphone! And I mostly get to do whatever I want 'cause I'm a grownup!

Because I am so grown up I thought I would be seriously appropriate to wear some sweet blue lips - as I have been obsessing over them like crazy!

What I used :

Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pure
Revlon Colorstay Foundation in 110 Ivory

Wet N Wild Brulee
Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Sabbath
Maybelline Mega Plush Volum' Express

NYX lipliner pencil in 851 Black Berry

Tom Ford Black Orchid
