Makeup favorite: Maybelline highlighting concealer

I have never been a huge fan of liquid make-up including concealer, but when I saw reviews of this maybelline highlighting concealer I had to try it and see what all the buzz was about. I don’t like liquid makeup because it feels greasy and heavy on my face and concealer never matched my skin tone just right. I usually just put pressed powder on and thats it. So I went to target and bought it. I tried it that same night. I LOVED it, and for someone who doesn’t like thick or liquid makeup I was surprised. It didn’t feel thick or greasy. It really brightened my face up, it’s pretty awesome! I even wear it by itself sometimes. I definitely recommend trying it!

before and after, DIY, refrigerator

DIY: refrigerator from off white to stainless steel!

DIY Stainless steel refrigerator:  I was searching the internet and some how came upon this product called faux stainless steel.  It was a roll of pvc film that looks exactly like stainless steel.  I’ve been wanting a new fridge, so I figured I would give this a shot before I spent the money on a whole new fridge.  Besides my fridge still works perfectly.  It was worth the 75 dollars(including the film and spray paint) instead of the price of a new fridge. This project was definitely more time consuming than I anticipated, but we got it done in one day in about 13 hours.  Had I known what I learned while doing this, I don’t think it would have taken as long. Which is why I figured I would post about it in case anyone else tries to do the same. Tools Used/Needed: * Screwdrivers (to take off/reassemle doors) * Sander * Fine Grit sand paper * Rustoleum Black Appliance Epoxy * Faux Stainless Steel Film * Hair Dryer (to help the film to stick around corners and edges) * Scissors (to cut the film to size) * Credit Card or Squeegee (to smooth out the film) We started […]

before and after, DIY, kitchen, paint

First DIY project for my house| Painting My kitchen

I purchased my first home back in February. I lived in the home a few years before I bought it so I wasn’t able to change much just being a renter. By the time I bought it I had plenty of ideas for already being there for about 3 years. The first thing I did after signing my mortgage documents was rip down this ugly wallpaper in the kitchen and paint it! Some parts of the wallpaper, mainly the border, were difficult but all I had to do for most of it was pull it off and use a steamer. Then I chose my paint and got started! It still only has one coat and needs to have the second and some touch up but I love it! The paint color I chose was Benjamin Moore stolen moments. I originally wanted sweet Caroline but it came out darker than I thought it would. Also, it helps to do a large sample area because once I got the color on a larger area it was lighter than I thought so the Sweet Caroline probably would have been fine, but I’m happy with the Stolen Moments! Before After with the Benjamin Moore […]

beauty, nail polish, nails

Favorite product: Nail polish!!

(Obviously I have a nail polish obsession) Over the years I have really started to LOVE to paint my nails. I wouldn’t do it often because it took forever to dry, or didn’t last long enough. Recently though I have discovered quick drying top coats, and now I can’t imagine painting my nails without it. The one I just started using is called Poshé. I purchased it from Sally’s for about 7 dollars. Ever since then I have done my nails WAY more often. It seriously dries in like 2 minutes. I have painted my nails and 15 minutes later switched over laundry or taken a shower with no problem! I freaking love it and definitely recommend it to impatient people like me.
