Ulta Haul and Mini Review!

 Hello loves!

I am back after a long hiatus. I have been so, so, so busy lately with my new job. It has seriously worn me out. But anyways, enough of that... onto the haul!

FakeBake Flawless
Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Well let me just start off by saying this stuff is truly amazing!!!! It includes a self-tan liquid with a spray pump, and a professional mitt. I used it last night after showering and exfoliating, and loved the results that showed up today. It does not have that self-tan smell that most tanning products have. The mitt that comes with it is awesome at spreading out the liquid evenly. Only reason I did not give this a 5 is because I would have liked to be a little darker, but hey... it says luxurious golden bronze.. not luxurious golden dark.

 Philosophy Take a Deep Breath
Rating: 5 out of 5

Hands down best moisturizer I have ever tried. I first got this product in the June MyGlam bag. For those of you who don't know what MyGlam is a monthly subscription for $10.00 and you get 4-5 sample beauty products. Definitely worth the $$ each month to try out different products I necessarily wouldn't buy. Anyways, this moisturizer was in the bag and I fell in love with it so much I had to buy the full size. I have combination oily skin, and this stuff does not make my skin extra oilier (sp?) which is something I look for when using moisturizers. It has made my skin overall healthier and for once in my life, I have a clear complexion making this get a 5 out of 5!! :) I definitely recommend trying out this moisturizer if you are on the hunt for a new one!

Description on the packaging says: "environmental factors such as sun, smog and pollution can cloud a complexion. revitalize your spirit and your skin with a quiet moment and a deep breath."

Maybelline One by One Mascara and Maybelline Collosal Mascara
Rating: 4 out of 5
$7.99 & $6.99

I bought these two mascaras as a buy one get one 50% off (sale going on currently in Ulta for most drugstore brands). I am still trying the One by One mascara out, as it takes me awhile to actually enjoy a mascara. After first application it definitely separated my lashes. So far, I like it, however I am not sure if it will be a repurchase... on the other hand the Collosal mascara is my holy grail mascara. This is probably my 20th tube. The only downfall with this mascara is the smell.. if you can get past the smell, it really is a great mascara if you want volume. 

So that was my Ulta haul. Not too bad and all things I have been wanting to try for a LONG time.

I promise to update this more. I have a few ideas I have written down and can't wait to blog about them.

I will be headed to the beach the week of June 25th, so look out for some OOTD's. I may just post a OOTWeek. We will see...

 I love you all, and thanks for sticking around! <3

Until next time,

Needless to say...

I have been so busy, and so tired lately. Work is going well, so far anyways! For those of you who don't know what exactly I do, I will go ahead and explain that now in elementary terms.

I work for a credit card processing company as a Risk Investigator. I deal with merchants on a daily basis. Their accounts get flagged in our system for unusual transactions, and well... we hold their funds. My supervisor then assigns me a case (a business), and I will basically investigate this business and find out everything I can about them. Are they fraud? Are they doing cash advances? What exactly are they doing? I request certain documents for certain situations, and so on so forth. I have learned so much new stuff about the market I am in, and it just amazes me how merchants act. I've only had a handful of merchants "yell" at me, but that comes with this job. I am holding merchant's funds.. At the end of the day, merchants understand our side and why we have to audit them. 

Anyways, enough of work.

It is my birthday weekend!!!
I am soooo excited. My birthday isn't technically until Monday, but this weekend is just perfect to celebrate!
Me and a bunch of friends are going to a lounge/club/bar called Cosmolava. It is beautiful on the inside. Just look for yourself! I will be taking lots of photos, and will definitely post a few in a future post.

Other exciting news..
I am going to a concert and it is only my favorite DJ ever,
The concert is on April 14th and me and two good friends of mine will be raving and it is going to be epic. I can't contain my excitement. *Insert sexiness here*

Ahhhh! Loveeeee <3

So that's whats been going on in my life, and what will be going on. I promise, promise to update this more often! :) I had time at work today, so maybe I can post when I have some downtime at work..

Until next time,
