Oops!- Why’d I buy that?


Ever look in your Make Up bag and see products you never use? I know I do! Oops! Why’d I buy that?!


e.l.f. blush – I bought this thinking I could use it as a contour shade. Then I bought my Wet n Wild MegaGlo pallet. Oops.

Maybelline Mascara – Bought this cause it was on sale. I like it, but it’s not my The Falsies and it’s not waterproof! (Critical for keeping curl to my sad little lashes.) Oops!

NYX CC Concealer- It looked so purdy. My YouTubers/ Instagramers use it. I can’t figure it out. I know what you are SUPPOSED to do… I just can’t make it work for me! Oops.

L’ORÉAL eyeshadow- Colour riche= rich color… false promises en français. Ferme la bouche, L’ORÉAL! Your color payout sucks! Oops!


L.A. COLORS pencil- It’s pretty, it’s cheap. Good color… but instead of just a pretty shimmer, they slammed glitter in there! Glitter and contacts are not a match made in heaven. Oops!

e.l.f. HD Undereye setting powder- I just felt the claims of this product fell flat. I use a regular powder and I feel it brightens and smoothes much better. Oops.

Younique lip stain- This is hands down my biggest blunder. $27.00 down the toliet for this crap. It looked nice at the party, but after a couple of uses I noticed it was super drying and it wore off unevenly and it made it look terrible! Like a kid after a cherry popsicle! There were clear lines between intense color and my nude lip. Crap, I say! Crap, crap, crap! Don’t waste your money!

What say you, Lovelies? Have YOU tried any of these? Let me know below or email me!


And I cried…

Woke up from the most vivid dream I’ve had in a while. In my dream, I screamed and yelled and cried at Butthead. I woke rather upset. As I pondered this, he poked his head into our bedroom to see if I was awake.

My face must have betrayed my thoughts, as he immediately asked what was wrong. Feeling silly, I told him. It was just a dream… I needed to shake it off. However, instead of assuring me that the dream was wholly preposterous… he began a statement that began, “In the interest of full disclosure…” and finished it with what felt like a gut punch.

And I cried. Big, sopping tears. Crinkled face, ugly cry. Bare your soul cry. Face your fears cry. Made him cry, cry.

We spent the rest of the day in bed, talking while wrapped in each others arms. There was more crying. But there was also laughter, kisses and more “I love you”s than had been said in a long time. Something that could have tore us apart just brought us closer together.

For the first time in a long time we actually listened to each other. We forgot ourselves and asked what did the other need? It was a remodel. A tidying. The earth may have shook, but our foundation is strong.

I could have been angry… shielded my hurt with harsh words. I chose to be raw. Be real… show my hurt and see my faults too. In turn, my love has grown stronger and wiser. I don’t regret crying.

LAWD, Have Mercy!

Y’all should know by now, I am a Southern Belle. 🎀

And we Southerners, well… we take our Chick-fil-a SERIOUS. Super serious! So when I ran across this gem on facebook, I could not resist sharing!


I couldn’t help laughing! I love some Chick-fil-a! I had it for dinner! (No lie!) 🐤🐤🐤

Do you have Chick-fil-a where you live?! What is your favorite meal?
(Mine is an original sandwich, waffle fries & large sweet tea!)

Hope your day is fabulous, Lovelies! ❤

Makeup Review: KISS Wing It


Claims: Waterproof, Smudge proof, easy application

What do you get?:

Stencil wheel


Pot of liner



My experience and thoughts:

First few attempts were shaky… but with a little practice, I was able to get my wings to match up well enough. It DOES do the shape for you, very well, you just have to get the placement right!

The product itself, does extremely well! The liner does what it says, it is smudge proof and waterproof.

I applied this at 11am Saturday. This picture is at 2am Sunday morning. After all day in the hot sun, even touching my eyes several times… it stuck like glue!

Final Thoughts:
I would definitely recommend this product, as long as you realize that it is just an aid… it will not make you perfect on attempt one!

Have you tried this? What are you’re thoughts? Have a better product? Let me know! Til next time, Lovelies! 😘


What’s in my Bag?


Terror and tears… no. It’s not that bad. It’s actually rather clean, believe it or not. So without further ado… here is the God’s honest look into my bag.


Water! Because, hydration is important!


Buttheads PS4 controller & cord. Because we just got back from a friend’s house where they were gaming together. No, I am not kidding.


M&Ms wrapper, because they’re freaking delicious! Why not?


Pouch of feminine products, just in case! My aunt Flo tends to be a surprise visitor!


Wally World receipt!! This is a common resident in my purse. Got a new makeup item to review  (yass!).


Wallet. Where the mystery of life is held. Or just my info. Yeah
… just my info and money.


Shades. Love my shades! They’re so sassy! And big! Big n sassy! Hooray!


A Marcos Pizza menu. Because, Pizza. Pizza is good. I like pizza. They don’t deliver though, so Pizza Hut wins. Oops.


Orbit gum, contact solution, and eye drops. Fresh breath and moisturized eyes are a must.


Random change, vape juice, battery, Vaseline lip therapy, a charger and napkins line the very bottom of my purse, for the win!


Oh and in the pockets there are oodles of lipsticks and eyeliners!

**Well, that’s all, Lovelies! Hope you enjoyed and have a great day!**

Wish List

A girl can dream… these are products I want to get my hands on but can’t due to $$ or I haven’t found it in stores yet! ❤


This Lip Duo alludes me! I have yet to find it in my area. I might have to go to Ulta. (Pweeese Butthead 💋) I’ve heard good things, plus what’s better than having your liner and lipstick together!? Be still my heart!


This product makes big promises! I just want it to give me a chance to prove it’s right 😉 Oh, Benefit! I wish you were more pocketbook friendly! (I see your Dandelion line… I see you.) 👀


Apparently this stuff is the Bees Knees. Again… I just want a chance! *cue Ariel singing “Part of Your World”* 😢

So what products have your eye? Have you tried these? What do YOU think? Let me know, Lovelies! 💞


Wet n Wild Megalast Review

Love. LOVE. L-O-V-E!

This polish goes on smooth, dried smooth and wears so nice!


I also have the purple, “On a Trip”… love it too! I love these polishes more than the Essie polish I bought and they were a fraction of the cost!


(Oh and this is more blueish in person)

Have you tried this polish? Know of one I should try? Let me know! Later, Lovelies!
