Ch.. ch.. ch.. ch.. CHERRY BOMB!!!

Happy Friday Lovelys!!

This week has been long and super stressful for me!! I've been moving out of my place, and let me just tell you ((moving is such a draaaaaaaaaag)) it's hard work and time consuming! Anywho... This morning I felt a little more relaxed and decided to shake off some of the stress and lazyness and actually put make up on my face!

I chose my "at the moment" favorite lipstick.. Which is Wet & Wild Cherry Bomb 918D I say "At the moment" because I totally change favorite lipsticks every other week!! I'm sure I'm not the only one with that problem! I really do love how pigmented these lipsticks are!! My only problem is that some tend to dry and make my lips look chapped!! So make sure you use a good lip moisturizer before applying these babies and a bit of lipgloss helps too!!

This lipstick retails at about $1.49 or less if they go on sale!

My 1st Little Black Bag

In my opinion, this may be the most addicting monthly subscription anyone can join!

Photobucket

If I try to explain how little black bag works, I'm going to FAIL miserably!! But, I'm going to try my hardest ANYWAY!! I will have the link of this AMAZING website below so you can check it out if you can't follow my explination!

Here goes...  You sign up on the website & fill out personality questionaire so the stylists know your "Fashion Style" to match you up with things that you may like. After that is done... You look through their gallary and choose an item that you want! Once you do that the "stylist" puts 2-3 items in your bag that may total up to $150 .... You are not allowed to see what the "stylist" chose for you until you pay for your bag.

You have 2 options: 1). You can sign up for the monthly subscription which is about $49.99 a month... I know that is pretty pricey for a monthly subscription but you have the option to skip a month or months or cancel within the first 5 days of the month OR 2). One time bag for about $59.99 ((depending on where you live))

Once you have paid, that's when the fun begins!! If you LOVE the items the stylist picked for you, you may ship your bag right away. If you don't really care for the items the stylist chose, you may start trading them with other people until your love your bag! You have 7 days to trade and you may end up with more than 3 items in your bag if you trade wisely. You may also trade the first item you put in your bag as well!! EVERYTHING is fair game!!  

BEST PART OF THIS... MOST ITEMS ARE DESIGNER!!! They have Besty Johnson, Steve Madden, BCBGeneration, Kenneth Cole and many many more!!

So, I got my bag yesterday and I want to show you what I first started with & what I ended up with...

MY PICK: LATIQUE Adele Flapover Satchel
Photobucket
Retail: $98

1st choice the stylist gave me was...
Photobucket
A.V Max Beaded Bracelet Retail: $40

3rd Item Stylist chose for me..
Photobucket
Robert Rose Linear Chain Earrings Retail: $18

My Bonus Benefit product
Photobucket
Sample size

So, out of the whole bag there was just one thing I did not like... Can you guess which one???

If you guessed the beaded bracelet then you're right!!! I did not think they were worth the $40 dollars that it retailed! So, I began my quest to trade for something I would love!! I swear I spent all day getting denied!! haha But I kept my faith and kept trading!!

Regardless of how many offers I got and how many cute things that were dangled in front of me... I didn't trade MY PICK

I got the one with the silver chains in the front not the gold because I didn't really like how the gold looked. I am so happy I didn't trade it!! I love it!! It's big and roomy for all the nonsense I tend to carry in my everyday bag! I would def pay $49.99 for this bag alone!

I kept these earrings... Which I was surprised on how LONG they are! I am going to keep them because I think they would look very classy with my hair up and a nice black dress!

&& What I traded the beaded bracelet for....
Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App
BCBGeneration Adrian crossbody purse... I did trade DOWN for this item meaning my item was retailed at $40 and this item was retailed at $38 but I didn't care! I saw this and knew I had to have it!! I love the fact that it's see through!! It's small and perfect for running errands...

All in all!! I do love this monthly subscription! I can't wait for Oct 1st for my next bag! If you are a little black bag member and have any tips on how to get more bang for your buck please let me know! I'd love to hear them!!

What I recieved in my Beautybox Five

Hey lovelys!! Tomorrow is the first day of FALL!! My favorite season of them all!! Time to cuddle up under a soft warm blanket, drinking your hot chocolate with marshmellows, & reading your favorite book or blog!! =D

Yesterday, I recieved my first beautybox five in the mail!! I signed up for this after watching a couple of youtube videos about the box, all the goodies inside were things I would have liked to try out. I was kind of skeptical because I have never signed up for a monthly subscription box.  A lot of girls I follow on twitter would always complain about not recieving their monthly subscription box and being charged extra on some months and or not liking the products that they were sent. All of the complains I heard were NOT about this BEAUTYBOX FIVE company they were different boxes or bags. I signed up in the beginning of September you have 3 options on payment method... You can pay in full for the year, quarterly, or monthly. I chose monthly which is $12 because in my head I figured if I liked a couple of boxes I can just go ahead and sign up for the year... If I don't then I can just cancel!

So enough about that lets get to the good stuff!! I'm actually VERY happy with my box! The box is a teal color and super adorable!! I got 5 goodies inside...

Just a lil something...

My weekend was really uneventful as far as going out or doing anything exciting! Friday one of my favorite clients came in and surprised me with some make up goodies... This lady is such a sweetheart I always love when she comes in because she's always so nice!

A silver sally hansen nailpolish pen && an Estee Lauder eyeshadow palette...

I used the pen at work to add the word LOVE & make a heart design ... && it was really easy to use and dried very quickly! I did not add a clear coat over because I was working... The letters stayed on for 3 days and then started to rub off!

After work.. I went to pick up my fav beer.. If you know me or follow me on twitter you know that my fav beer is TECATE!! Well, to my surpise they changed the can && I super love it!! I think the eagle on the can is so sexy! haha
