Hey guys! So I recently received this as a gift! It’s an upgrade of my original one!
And amazingly it’s also purple! My favorite color of all time. I rarely use it though. Only when I have to go somewhere fancy or get ready for an event, etc…
This is where I started playing around with photography again… You might notice that I love playing with angles and the focus a lot of times… Focusing on words both up close and in the distance is one of my favorite things to do. I want to get the right photo! You know?
Lol. So anywho, my old one is the exact same brand and model. The newer one has more features though. It comes with two detachable pieces (pictured). It’s also MUCH MUCH larger than my old one! By like… 5 inches! It’s crazy!
The old one was a rose gold sort of a color… It’s also more round at the head where the brush is and my new one is more flat round… It still has bristles all the way around it. It’s just designed more like a brush…
And again I played with focusing on the names to show that it’s the same brand and model… Lol. The newer one just has “knotectomy” which is “precision knot surgery” according to the box… Definitely something I occasionally need because my hair is naturally curly.
I haven’t tried it out yet, but I will soon and hopefully compare them 🙂 I still kept my old one too… I’m not sure why since I won’t use it anymore… But either way 🙂 im very happy with my new one. The features, the detail to knots, the color! The only disadvantage is since it is larger, it weighs a slight bit more so holding it up for long periods might make your wrist a little tired lol. But not much! What do you think? Does anyone have one of these? Either the old or new? What are your thoughts on it? Let me know in the comments!
They aren’t really from Alice In Wonderland, but when you look at them, do you see anything else?! I mean come on these scream “paint your cheeks red” lol 😉 I am in love.
These look like they totally belong with the other ones. I love the actual brush tips they look like FIRE almost. Compact with a little mirror! These would be perfect to put as your travel brushes and then use the full set above as your main brushes! Just an idea…
Isn’t this so pretty? It’s like straight out of Beauty and the Beast. This would even match the two sets above. Haha. Really though, this rose brush would be the eye of the collection in my opinion. Too cute not to pass up!
This one reminds me of the 19… 40’s, 50’s? It’s like one of those big powder brushes that they used. I mean it isn’t but that’s just what it reminds me of… what do you think? What does it remind you of? A time era or something different? Don’t say mermaid yet cuz there’s plenty more to remind you of mermaids! Just wait lol!
These ones are pretty, they look like a Unicorn horn spiral! So still not mermaid… unicorn lol 🙂
These bad boys could totally pass as makeup brushes from the future! I’m serious! You can totally see it too!
These ones remind me of those colored pencils that are half one color and half another… as colored pencils they suck, but as makeup brushes these rule! I am loving all the colors! Speaking of colours….
If the other ones are TOO many colours there is also a nice pastel option! Pastels are so pretty. Against the other colours they look girly and feminine. I love them… don’t you?
NOW YOU CAN SAY MERMAID! These ones are gorgeous! Yes they remind me of a mermaid. How? Idk the colours I suppose… the teal brush tips and ombré Color palette from pink to yellow blending all the colours of a mermaid together. At least in my brain anyways…
My favourite set combines the look of the previous “mermaid” tail but takes it to the next level using my favourite color purple with hues of light blues, silvers, golds, lilacs and lavenders all together for a futuristic purple ombré mermaid brush set… that was a mouthful. Haha these aren’t actually mermaid related, but they are my favourite set! This plus this single brush that’s only $1!
Thus completing my imaginary brush set <3 In all actuality these brush sets are quite affordable. They range in price from $50 for the 32 red heart brush set down to $1 for the solo purple. The mid ranges on average of $5 – $10 the 32 brush set is really the only one in a different price bracket. They’re all available at Shein.com for very reasonable prices along with hundreds of other brush sets.
Which brush or brush set is your favourite? Would you combine any sets together? Like the first 3 with the hearts and ending with the rose brush or maybe the mermaid and the purple with their matching handles? Or a new set entirely? If so post it in the comments so I can see! I love makeup brushes I collect them and have some really cool ones! I rarely use all the sets for makeup though… most are just collected for their cool designs. I’m craazzzzyyy. Lol. xo
Hey everyone! So a while ago, I bought a few of Hallu’s Bath Bomb’s from Wal – Mart including the “Unicorn” bomb and OMG, this was possibly my absolute favorite bath bomb I have ever tried!
The water started off with a deep swirling indigo color (dark blueish purple) and it swirled into the most beautiful color of purple on the planet! The scent was amazing and I came out smelling amazing! The color ended with a nice deep violet (see below!)
Please ignore the dirty bathroom… I didn’t even notice it until right now LOL. Anyways, obviously it’s my favorite for the beautiful colors that swirled in the water combined with the scent of the water and the super fun bubbles (that were added separately not created by the bath bomb) this was probably my favorite bubble bath of all time.
I love bath bombs so much! Especially when they turn out to be beautiful shades of the color purple. My last one was a nice fuchsia/magenta color. This one tops it though. The colors were amazing. Please definitely try this one out if you can! It made my day. Not to mention it smelled so amazingly good! Ahhh! I want to try all of them from this brand now.
You can find them at your local Wal Mart or Walgreen’s, CVS, or wherever you usually shop for hygiene items I’m sure. Just avoid the 99 cent only stores. Although they do sell some stuff that looks promising it usually lacks scent and is cheaply produced. This brand is $5 a bomb but that $5 is totally worth it. Trust me, I promise you won’t regret trying one of these… especially the Unicorn bomb! Up next for me: the Mermaid bomb! I’m serious. Go check them out! x
Hey guys! So a couple of weeks ago a friend of mine gave me a really awesome gift out of the blue. At first I didn’t honestly know what it was specifically for, but I knew it was a tray for your lap. I started using mine while watching TV and working on my iPad or MacBook. Then I got curious to google it because it comes with a soap holder (see below) that isn’t attached to it and I wanted to find out what it was for…
That’s when I learned it’s true usage! It’s a bathtub caddy for relaxing in the tub! It even has a slot for holding your wine glass specifically.
I immediately fell in love with mine all over again! I started to look through photos of them to see what people used them for… and technically it doesn’t have to be used in the bathtub… or even the bathroom! It can be used anywhere you want to.
They also come in several different styles and looks. Not just color/type of wood (possibly but not sure about that) wise! This one one make it look like a fancy marble style bathroom. The kind in a super huge bathroom with a jet spa bathtub and a super soft fluffy bathrobe with matching slippers constantly hanging up on a hook just outside the tub… oh sorry I was day dreaming! LOL 😉
This one has a lot of ridges that I think may function better if it is used as a bathroom caddy rather than a portable desk like I currently do. Look wise though I think the ridges add style to it! Especially in the bathtub. It’s amazing how different cuts of wood can make something so unique.
Here’s another color that adds a completely different look/style. The darker wood adds a rustic old style look to a bathroom. I love how they tied the wash clothes up with a string. So simple but it really takes it up there to look extremely classy/rich. By rich I don’t literally mean a lot of money. I mean it makes the room look rich with the color choice. I don’t like the metal bars/poles on the second lighter option. The metal makes it look… out of place? Cheaper? Just… not as nice I suppose…
Definitely feeling the darker one for a bathroom though! It’s so simple and basic. It’s literally a piece of wood just planked across the tub… complete still with a wine glass holder… they all have one. Surprisingly no soap caddy though… isn’t this supposed to be for a tub? Haha advertise holding wine glasses, but don’t drop your soap! Lmao I tease.
See the ones with a bunch of options still look just as nice but you have the option to hold your wine and your towels! Hopefully it doesn’t fall into the bathtub though! Oops…
See here’s an example of how I tend to currently use mine… it stays next to my bed/tv because I rarely sit at my desk… I have no idea why but… hey I can still have it hold my wine glass! Just have to get some wine glasses first though 😛
I really feel the emphasis on the wine here… but idk maybe they should also have some photos with tea cups or coffee mugs… just for those of us that rarely or never drink wine… Although putting my OJ in a wine glass makes me feel fancy… putting grape juice in my mine glass makes me feel like a liar lol
This one has a wooden holder for your tablet. I wish mine had one like that. It makes the entire caddy look a lot nicer overall and it’s probably more sturdy than the simple wires with a cloth…
For those of you who are confused as to what I am talking about see above. The book or iPad holder is literally just a wire with some material sewn onto it. Most companies put their name here for advertising. Too bad that makes it look ugly and cheap. Yes mine had it too. No exception. Well except for these ones. I noticed the dark brown one doesn’t even have a holder at all, while two or three of them have wooden holders, but the majority of them all come with the simple wire and the company’s branded material right in your face…
Way to be subtle guys… I mean the names already printed on the wood towards the bottom… why does it have to be five inches above it. It’s like a repeat. I’m done ranting about the company names. Let’s focus on how amazing these things are and how great they function both inside and outside of the bathtub!
What do you think? Do you have one already? Would you get one? Would you prefer the wooden/bamboo caddy or a simple wire one that they sell for $5 at the discount stores? Definitely more budget friendly. These caddy’s range in price from $50-$70 ! I mean I LOVE mine… what about you? Is it a good investment? Would you get one?
Hey guys! This is one of those old posts before I cut my hair that never posted! So here we go…
So I’ve had some really cute panda face masks for a while now. They were almost too cute to use! But I finally decided to try the first one out last week! The mask is for HYDRATING and SOOTHING skin. (This review is for the one on the left (again that would be stage right ;)) … Don’t ask.
Yes, I will be reviewing the second mask (the pink one) hopefully later this week so be sure to come back if you want to see the second one! So these masks we’re both given to me as a gift so I am not sure where they originally came from but the brand(s) are Soo’AE NY, for this mask and the pink one is from Peach Slices!
First off, please note that the mask is very fragile and somewhat hard to place gently. Masks usually come with a slimy gel type of liquid and this mask was thick and slimy honestly. At least in my hands. When I put it on my face it was perfect! Once again though be careful with it, because I ended up accidentally ripping my mask near the nose part, which made it kinda hard to position correctly… The first thing you notice is that it’s obviously hella cute! It’s literally a panda face (but only half of it) so it is made specifically for your eye area only not your entire face.
I waited a while to review this mask because I wanted to make sure I used it for what it says: revitalizes eyes, soothes, and hydrates. So I waited until my skin was particularly dry and my eyes had dark circles underneath them. The thick slim did the trick. I know most masks are slippery and sometimes they are slimy as well, but this particular mask was thicker than any other mask I’ve ever tried before… The hydration made my face glow again! I’ve tried other hydration masks but this one takes the cake for brightening and making my face glow afterward.
I definitely would recommend anyone needing hydration or even just a mask to make your face look alive instead of extremely dry this would be the mask for you! I, unfortunately, lost the after picture so you should try it out on your own! Just remember that the mask is thick, heavy, and slimy when you open it, so go slow so you don’t rip it like I did! 😛
Has anyone ever tried this mask before? Or even just heard of the brand ”Soo’AE New York” or tried any other products from them? What are your thoughts? Or if you haven’t, would you want to try out this mask? The cuteness alone is a bonus! Thoughts? xo
Hey guys… So I guess none of the blog posts I have been writing and posting have even been going live! I guess that’s my own fault for not checking them LOL. Anyhoo… About two months ago I had to cut my hair. I have never liked my hair short. My hair is naturally curly so when it’s short, I tend to have overly frizzy curls and I think I look a bit like Annie (you know… Red curly hair in an afro-style hair style).
My friend on the other hand thinks I look more like Merida from Brave… But that’s with my LONG hair! I won’t argue with that one. Although Ariel is my princess for life, my red hair isn’t as smooth and wavy as Ariel’s. Well… Maybe if I was underwater haha. So fine then, Merdia, we have cool hair… And a Scottish heritiage!
Haha. Anywho, the point being my hair is short but for the first time in my life… I actually really like how it came out! Especially since I cut itself and it’s only the second time in my life that I have done that. New photos will be coming soon but for the mean time… Here’s my Snapchat diary! My hair is about a half an inch longer now lol but obviously you can’t really tell.
It’s shorter on the left side (stage right – LMFAO) so I don’t part it down the middle… And yes it was supposed to be. What do you think of it? Way too long of a blog about nothing but cutting my hair? Yeah… I agree. Pfft. Let me know in the comments below!
Hey my loves. So this past year I had some huge problems with my hair being overly dry and getting all tangled together. It got so bad I couldn’t even get a brush through it and I seriously considered chopping off ALL my hair, until…
Knot On My Watch hair detangler is the bees knees. Literally after trying so many different options, I ran into this product and I am never using anything else to detangle my hair ever again.
The instant you put it in your hair the brush just starts to move through the locks. I have extremely curly hair… It’s my lion’s mane (I’m a Leo) and my curls are rather important to me. Plus they keep my neck warm like a scarf during the cold months… So cutting off my hair was literally going to make me super upset. The absolute best part is it’s not expensive at all! I got it at my local Target store for under $15 which is great because before I found it I tried looking for solutions on YouTube and I found some companies and products that may have worked but they weren’t really in my budget at the time.
Has anyone ever tried this product? Did it work for you? What do you guys do when you have hair problems? Let me know in the comments 🙂

This is one of my all time FAVORITE masks. I haven’t been able to find the large version in the store (although I’m sure they have it) it really cleans out your pores and makes your skin feel soft. The main reason I fell in love with it is because it smells like you’re at the beach. It’s wonderful! Not to mention it’s bright blue! HAHA
This is a horrible product review, but really out of all of Freeman’s Feeling Beautiful Facial Masks, this is my all time favourite and those are the only facial masks I use (I rotate depending on what my skin needs). Right now I’m trying their “Chamomile Sleeping Mask” instead of using my night cream to see how that works so I will let you know! So far I really like it, but I’m not too sure if I like it better than my night cream because that makes my skin feel like a baby’s bottom the next day!
I bought a BUNCH of these packets for different facial masks from them including some new ones that I haven’t tried on my shopping haul last weekend (I haven’t posted all the skincare stuff I got yet!) so there will be some reviews up featuring some new products of theirs! I love Freeman’s Feeling Beautiful Facial Masks. They have one for all types of skins and literally use EVERYTHING you can think of to make sure you find one you love specifically for you. x
Hey guys! It’s been stupidly hard to blog since my camera broke but the good news is, my new DSLR comes in the mail TOMORROW! I should be getting my camera bag & tripod today 🙂 anywho! I went shopping with my mom this past weekend and have a LOT of stuff to share so this is part one: the makeup!
I’m really excited because I finally got myself a makeup kit (it’s a bit small but it’s a start!) I have so much makeup that I have a huge makeup bag full of just lipstick plus these two little travel bags (both purple) one came with my new brushes! Check it out!
So I lost my black lipstick when I moved out of my grandmas house and have been looking for a new one ever since… But I finally got some NUDE lipsticks which I’m super excited about. One is more of a peach nude and is called “Lasting Finish” by Kate for Rimmel. (also Target doesnt sell my favorite lipstick brand and that’s really disappointing to me). The next one is “Bare All” which is more of a nude nude by Maybelline. The deep Rose one is called “Berry Rose” and is a nice mix between pink, red and purple. The last is a “Lilac Flush” which is a pink but not too bright since it’s mixed with purple. 🙂
I noticed after getting home that a LOT of my brushes went missing including my favorite blush / contour cheeks brush so I went and got some new brushes that came with a little makeup bag (haven’t decided what to use it for yet tho because…)
All of my brushes don’t fit in it so I use my other purple travel sized bag which is a little bigger for my brushes!
I also redid my key chains because I have quite a few new things including my purple pill holder, the butterfly keychain that my mom got me for Christmas & this daisy hand sanitizer holder (we went to bath and body works but that’s a different blog!) I also added my purple sharpie 😉 because I’m collecting everything purple on my keys!
And now it’s time for this bad boy! My new makeup kit. Like I said it’s a bit small for everything I have but I love it! It locks so I added the key to my key ring!
When it opens it has four shelves and a large bottom. So I put all my basics on the bottom.
The makeup that it holds are the BEST make ups I have including Dark Heart Designs (seriously the best makeup ever) I also added a few pallets that I use often. All my other makeup (broken pallets) like Elf that come off very easily I put inside the bag with my lipsticks for “back up”. I also got some regular items like black eyeliner (pencil, cuz i have liquid) & gray eyeliner, makeup remover wipes, q-tips, oil wipes, etc.
The very top holds my eyeliners, mascaras & eye shadow base (which I will be doing a review on because it’s great!) so this is the MAKEUP STUFF that I got this weekend. I have tons more to show like I said bath and body works, I got a few new clothing items & a lot of skincare product so! So it’s going to be a full blogging day for me! But first I am going to get dressed and do my makeup! 😉
I’m winding down for the night! Only two more posts to go after this one! So, I rarely wear perfumes only because they are SO EXPENSIVE! And if you are really going to pay $50-$100+ for a bottle it better smell pretty fantastic! I usually use body spray… or more preferably just deodorant and I’m out the door with my normal skin scent. However, there are a few perfumes that I DO actually think smell good and I have forked over the money for them especially this first one at least three times now!
Number one: With Love… by Hilary Duff
I have always been a fan of Hilary Duff and I think she released another scent of perfume after this one but I didn’t really like it as much but that could of been a dream… let me go look. Yeah, she did it’s called Wrapped With Love also it’s gone WAY down in price since it first came out… either way I LOVE the scent of With Love and I’ve bought three bottles of these since it came out. The scent is great, sweet and perfect for nights that need perfume (because you don’t need it every night really now…)
Number two: Fantasy by Britney Spears
I am not even a Britney fan… sorry don’t hate me. I don’t dislike her, I’m just not a fan… I do however LOVE the smell of Fantasy which happened one day as I was walking through Macy’s and someone stopped me to smell it. I was mildly surprised at how much I really did love the smell of it!
Number three: The last one I only tried because Emma Watson endorsed the product and I love her. The one thing I didn’t know was that I was actually going to fall in love with the perfume too! It has a scent of raspberries, vanilla & rose. I’m not a huge fan of the way vanilla smells but the other two really brought this one together… plus the packaging is purple and anything that’s purple is really appealing to me. Although this one I believe is the most expensive out of the three, it’s also probably the one most worth it! You should definitely try it out if you can! What’s your favorite perfume scent? (NOT body spray, perfume.. .you know the expensive kind that you only use out of magazines by rubbing the paper on your skin and hoping if you keep the paper sealed away the smell will last longer but it doesn’t… that kind of perfume), x
