November 2014 favorites

I'd like to start this post off with a huge thank you to everyone who read my previous post "my life with a disability" and if you haven't read it yet to get to know a little more about me, just go to my archive and you'll find it there :)

Okay onto my favorites..

I love when it becomes "sweater weather" and you can just wrap yourself in a cozy sweater!

I absolutely love this beige dog  pullover sweater I got from target ($11)!

 I don't really go for this color normally, but I saw the design and thought it was so cute! Plus it's really warm and comfy.

I am a big lover of hats and I look forward when the temperatures get colder so I can wear them! Like this bobble hat from Joe Boxer for Kmart ($9)




 And of course you also need a scarf to keep you warm! Like this heart grey/navy colored Reversible Hearts Infinity Scarf from Charming Charlies ($15)





Now that it is fall going into winter I am loving the dark lip trend right now!

First one is from Nyx's Simply Vamp collection ($5)
This is a chubby lip pencil in the color bewitching  with a purple tone that goes on matte. I was quite surprised at how long it lasted! It's very pigmented so you'll only need one coat.

The next one is from Revlon ($5)
This one is in the color Black Cherry that is a dark berry tone with a little  shine and I love the way it looks. Unlike the first one, if you want a very dark you may need to put on more than one coat and fill your lips with a lip liner with a similar color to make it last a little bit.

 moistrizing your lips is very important in these cold tempurtures
With Mongogo's lip balm ($6) will help moisten your lips with a cool mint feeling making your lips soft.


For the eyes I am using more autumnal tones using with Maybelline's The Nudes Platte ( $10)
 .
This palette has 6 shimmery and 6 matte shades to choose from. It's perfect to make any type of smoky eye or just use them individually.

Another Maybelline product I love is the Master Kajal cream eyeliner.($7)
This pencil is the first cream eyeliner from Maybelline. It will give you the dramatic eye your looking for this holiday season.

If you're looking for a little sparkle for your holiday look Beautique Long-Wear Automatic Eye Liner in Diamond ($4) will be your go to


This retractable pencil goes on easy and will definitely give you a subtle  pop to your eyes with its sparkle.

Do you have a hard time putting on or just don't have time for fake lashes? Well with Maybelline's Falsies mascara ($6) will help you!



Like probably many of girls putting on lashes is a difficult task, especially if you're on the go. this makes it simple and fast and gives you a natural look.

Want to have your eyes look more awake in these cold days? Rimmel's Wake Me Up Conceler ($5)

This will brighten your eyes as well conceal your blemishes.

Since it is Winter dark/ grey colors are in trend for nails also.



Like this dark red from Nicole from OPI in Very Cherry ($5)



Or this grey tone from Sinful Color's in Nirvana ($2)

Those are my favorites! Until next time :)

Book Of Month Review-October

I have decided to start reviewing books that I have read in the past month or recently.

For the month of October I am Reviewing Grace Helbig's Grace's Guide: The Art Of Pretending To Be An Adult.

If you don't know who Grace Helbig is, she is part of the new online celebrity phenomenon. She hosts a weekly show called "ItsGrace" on Youtube.  She is known for making funny How-to's, recipes,reviews and talks about many different life experiences while not being preachy and putting her own spin on it.

Now she is an author of her own self help memoir.

In the book she shares my tips on how to survive different situations in life, like surviving school, making friends, dating, break ups and anxiety all while sharing her life experiences in those areas.

The tips she gives out are very witty and funny, but at the same time very helpful. I also loved the fact at the end of each section there were weird and funny acronyms that would help you remember the tips.

Acronyms like:

ASIA SHAVED (From the section: How To Hang Out By Yourself)

WORK POOT (How To Interview For a Job)

DANCE CROTCH (How To Get Over A Hangover)

Now I'll be honest before I read it I assumed it would just be funny and not taken too seriously just like her videos, but  at the beginning of each section she writes about her experiences and her life growing up and it gave me a new prospective of her as a person to where I felt some parts were taken out of my own life and fears and I suddenly didn't feel alone in that aspect of growing up and dealing with different situations that can be terrifying.

As I read I would go from laughing to thinking "Oh wow I thought it was just me who felt this way or did this" and I felt a little better about myself.

For me, I thought the way she explained everything in non condescending matter really helps you understand it more because it is funny and fun and I think a lot of people, especially teens and young adults will find it useful in their lives, because lets face it growing up sucks.

I really recommend this book if you are struggling with growing up and need a bit of a pick me up and a laugh or three and you can catch Grace on her youtube page!

 BYEEEEEE!
