FOTD, hair, rambling!

It's been a few days since I've posted - truth is, it's been a crazy week for me. But I have been experimenting with my hair a bit, trying to find ways to style it, and am happy to report that it looks best (in my opinion) if I let it airdry with a texture paste in it! No blow-drying, no babysitting or anything! Though the paste makes it oily faster, so I've had  to was it more often, but that's not a big deal since it dries so much faster. Oh, as for the hair paste/wax I love, Pantene Pro-V Texture Pomade! I did buy & try the ShortSexyHair Piece Out mousse, but it made my hair sticky :(

I also will be trying to post regarding my oil cleansing method. I wasn't sure if it was helping my skin, so I didn't post about it and stopped oil cleansing... HUGE mistake! My skin went horrible, so now I can tell it was making a good difference. (Notice all my breakouts? ugh)

I parted my bangs further to the side today, I feel very Justin Beiber, lol! Oh, and did I mention I've been watching Glee? My friend Lauryn talked me into it, and I've rediscovered my love for pop music - I'm literally listening to old school NSYNC right now! And today I chose to listen to the Don't Stop Believin' cover by the Glee cast instead of the original (and I love me some Journey, you don't even know!) I've gotten through season 1 & 2 and need to find 3 now (might have to sign up for Netflix again just for it!) Anyways, here's my makeup breakdown:
Benefit The POREfessional primer (too drying with this foundation)
Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation in .5
Benefit Coralista blush
ELF HD Powder

Urban Decay Primer Potion
MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study
Sleek i-Divine Storm Palette (pink all over lid, maroon in crease)
Maybelline Eyestudio gel liner
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough As Taupe to fill in brows (omg, so unruly lately!)
Urban Decay Supercurl Curling Mascara

Hard Candy Mouthing Off lipgloss in 211 Exotic (interesting comp below!)

So this is the GAP sweater I wore today.. I had to go sweater shopping, and luggage shopping this past week because I'm taking a top secret trip to visit a friend soon! But shhh... Also, I've been looking to Ginnifer Goodwin's Once Upon a Time character Mary Margaret for outfit inspiration lately, I mean she inspired my haircut and now my clothes! Maybe I'll post an inspiration post this week. Plus OUAT is back!!!!! I can not wait!!!!!!! omg, I'm obsessed.

And now this quick comparison. So, I love Orly's Galaxy Girl nail polish, it was one of the first Orly's I ever bought, when I first got into nail polish - a gorgeous  purple base with large shimmer that is mostly aqua but goes to pink on the edges. So when I spotted this lipgloss, Hard Candy Exotic, it has the same shimmer and I had to have it! It's not too sticky, though it's brown-er than the nail polish.  The only disappointment is that because the base is actually very sheer, so the glitters have a funky brown color if the light is not shining directly on it (my lips look dirty, look at the photos!)

So there's my random ramble of the day! I'll try to get back with regular posting this week!


  1. Your hair looks so adorable!!! :)

    I love me some Journey! Don't Stop Believing may be the best song ever! In fact, my friend just posted on FB about what song to sing for Karaoke and that was what I suggested. :) Also, Journey and Def Leppard was the greatest concert I've ever been to in my life!

    1. Oh man, my husband and I used to go to karaoke nights all the time a few years ago - and I'd beg him to do Don't Stop Believin' (I'm too shy to do karaoke!) I love it so much!
