Going Green!!!

I'm loving Green! Not because it's the color of money...well maybe a But I probably own about two green nail polishes. So I feel like doing another nail polish haul soon! ^_~

I'm using Confetti Nail Colors in My Favorite Martian and Party Palace Blue.

I'm loving these two colors. It looks very pretty but it goes on very sheer. I applied about 4 coats of My Favorite Martian, and 3 coats of (on my ring finger) Party Palace Blue. Also applied Seche Clear (base coat) & Seche Vite (top coat)
Cost cheap
Lots of pretty colors to choose from
Dries pretty quick

Very sheer
Have a Great Weekend guys!

Thanks for reading!

Mini Haul

I was at CVS yesterday and picked up three things. Two nail polishes and a lip balm.

I picked up Maybelline Baby Lips and two Confetti nail polishes in 097 My Favorite Martian and 083 Party Palace Blue. F.Y.I none of these items were on sale!

Maybelline Baby Lips is a moisturizing lip balm with spf 20. It claims to give you up to 8HR Moisture + Lip Renewal. It also claims to keep lips less dry, less rough, more supple better looking lips.

Now I don't know if all that is true cause I only tired it out once and from what I can tell it does make my lips more softer and supple. It didn't last 8 hours but I wasn't expecting it to last long. It did make my lips look a bit more plump, which I loved!

The lip balm is in 30 Peach Kiss. It's a very pretty color, but it does go on sheer. They do have other colors of this lip balm. 

As you can see it's very sheer and it also has some shimmer to it!

Over all I'm liking this product! 

Okay Next up is...

Confetti Nail Colors in (L) 083 Party Palace Blue & (R) 097 My Favorite Martian.

Party Palace Blue is a very pretty glitter polish with some pink flecks in it and My Favorite Martian is a gorgeous green polish with shimmer flecks in it. Can't wait to paint my nails!

That's all for my mini haul! Look forward to some nail polish swatches soon! ^_^

Thanks for reading!

Marble Nails

Here's my first attempt at marble nails.

I have to say this was hard for me! But I know practice makes prefect, or at least close to prefect! haha

I watched so many marble nail tutroials on youtube and I thought I had it in the bag. I thought this would be a piece of cake, which I rather have the cake! But it wasn't! It was pretty hard getting everything prepared, picking out the polishes, taping up my fingers and the mess...

I noticed some of the polishes I used didn't blend well in the water, so I have to test out a few.

Over all I think it came out okay, I don't love it but you know what they say before practice makes perfect!

 Products Used:
Seche Clear Base Coat
Sinful Colors in Snow Me White (base color)
Marble Colors:
Confetti in Belle of The Ball
Sinful Colors in Soul Mate
Zoya in Shay
Sinful Colors in Pearl Harbor
Nail Art in Wild Heart 
Seche Vite Top Coat

Bonus Eats!

Here's a bonus pic of Chicken Noodle Soup that I made last night! It was my first time cooking soup from scratch and it was really good! I didn't even follow any recipe. Just kept it simple, low sodium chicken broth, water, low sodium chicken broth seasoning, celery, carrots, potatoes, cooked chicken and udon noodles.

Banana Bread

What I had for breakfast!

I found this great recipe on Banana Bread online, so I just had to bake it! I got this recipe from Annie Eats Blog. I really love her blog cause she makes such great eats!

It's a pretty easy recipe to follow. You don't need to use a mixer at all, just a whisk or a spatula. It came out super moist and super yummy! The slice bananas on the edges makes the bread look even more delicious! 

Once I took it out the oven and let it sit for a while, I dig right in! I love it when the bread is still warm from the oven. If you bake this, your house will smell like bananas! ^_^

Recipe Below!



Banana Bread
Printer-Friendly Version
1¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
6 large, very ripe bananas (about 2¼ lbs.), peeled
8 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
2 large eggs
¾ cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. granulated sugar

Preheat the oven to 350˚ F.  Lightly spray a loaf pan (about 9 x 5 inches) with cooking spray.  In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt; whisk together and set aside.

Place 5 bananas in a microwave safe bowl; cover with plastic wrap and make several slits in the wrap to act as steam vents.  Microwave on high until the bananas are soft and have released liquid, about 5 minutes.  Transfer the bananas to a fine mesh strainer set over a medium bowl and let drain, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes (you should have ½-¾ cup liquid).

Transfer the reserved banana liquid to a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.  Cook until reduced to about ¼ cup, 5-10 minutes.  Remove the pan from the heat.  In a large bowl, combine the bananas and the reduced banana liquid.  Mash with a potato masher or whisk until fairly smooth.  Whisk in the melted butter, eggs, brown sugar and vanilla.  Add the dry ingredients to the bowl with the banana mixture.  Fold together gently, just until all of the dry ingredients are incorporated.  Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth with a spatula.

Slice the remaining banana diagonally into ¼-inch thick slices.  Layer the banana slices along both sides of the top of the batter, leaving a couple of inches in the center to allow an even rise.  Sprinkle the sugar evenly over the assembled loaf.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 55-75 minutes.  Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool at least 15 minutes in the pan before removing.  Continue to cool and serve warm or at room temperature.

I haven't tried out the LIV GRN Earth Eau de Parfum yet, but I can smell it without opening it and it smells pretty good!

I'm pretty excited to try out the Pangea Organics Facial Cream! I was running low on my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. (my fave by far!)

FOTD (Pic Heavy)

I made a really quick and simple eye look using one palette. I only used three eye shadows from my Coastal Scents 88 Warm Palette. I think it came out really pretty and didn't take me that long to do! Really quick and easy for when your on the go, like work or school or just hanging out!

I think this look opens up my eyes more. Which is always good since I have small eyes.

I used a medium & dark brown on the lid and lower lash line, plus a high light color to the brow and inner tear duct. Then finished with Loreal liquid liner in black. Add some mascara and your done! ^_^

What I Used
Coastal Scents 88 Warm Palette (last row third color and second to last color) and high light color
Loreal Liquid Liner
Tarte Camera Lights Lashes & Maybelline Falsies Mascara

Origins VitaZing
Garnier Fructis Roller Ball Dark Circles
Maybelline Concealer
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder
Loreal Fairest Nude

My cam pretty much sucks cause the colors should be more brighter!

Thanks for reading!

Here we go! Nails of the week time! 

I like to update my nail polish about every week! From time to time I let my natural nails breathe a bit. ^_^

In the below pic are the polishes that I used...I bought two new nail polishes, a white and a glitter polish. They were both $1.99 at Rite Aid. The glitter polish came with a top coat.

What I Used:
Seche Vite Base & Top Coat
Sinful Colors in Snow Me White 1 (3 coats)
Sinful Colors in Pearl Harbor 142 (1 coat)
Wet n Wild in Party of Five Glitter 238c (3 coats)

The white polish is what I used for my Panda nails. It has pretty good pigmentation.

The glitter polish not so much. Really didn't like this one! I thought it would pack on the glitter, but it ends up making my nails look bubbly. It's pretty though...I saw that Milani had a glitter polish like this one, maybe I'll try that one out next!

One of my favorite glitter nail polishes is Sinful Colors in Pearl Harbor! It's such a pretty glitter color and it's not an over bearing glitter. It's goes on nice and light. You can tell from the above picture that I use it a lot! lol Need to buy more! I also saw that they had a pink one too! This color would look awesome on top of a darker nail color.

As soon as summer is done and over with, and the weather starts getting much cooler, I will be posting more FOTD. I don't usually wear makeup much in the summer time cause of the heat. I just can't stand it. Plus I'm a winter baby! haha I love fall and spring too.

I've been looking at youtube videos on marble nails, and I wanna try that out next! So look out for that post!
Thanks for reading!
