Guest Post: June Go-to's!

Here are my June Go-to's!

Bite Lipstick in Pomegranate: this lipstick hands down beats everything I have ever owned. I picked up a sample at Sephora and will be going back very soon to purchase a full size bottle. This color is a super bright red, very pigmented and goes on really smooth and creamy. As for the lipstick formula itself, I have really dry, really chapped lips and this doesn't crack on the lips and doesn't flake off like a lot of other lipsticks. It wears really well and sticks on for a long period of time.

Lip Tar in Pretty Boy: Again, another super bright, crazy bright lipstick in hot pink and I have only put this on once but I expect to try it on again. First impressions: it stays on really well, it's a thick lipstick and stayed on really well the first time.

Organix Moroccan Argan Oil: This kind is for the dry and coarse hair. I recently just bleached my hair from darkest you can go black to a light brown for the summer. And of course, as everyone knows, bleach kills hair. My hair was like straw when I left the salon. Carolyn recommended this to me and I put it on the first day and my hair was so soft! I used it the next day too without washing my hair and it doesn't build up or make my hair greasy when I skip a day of washing my hair.

Miss Jessie's Stretch Silkening Cream: Excellent for curly hair, especially excellent for curly hair that's been recently bleached. Makes my hair soft and manageable and since Central New York has been like a rainforest with lots of humidity, my hair is out of control. This tones it down A LOT.

On a quick side note, I paint my nails a lot. I get bored of the same color after a couple of days but right now I'm wearing Wet N' Wild in On a Trip: beautiful lavender color and the top coat I'm using is Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. If you're looking for a fantastic top coat, this is it! Shiny, dries really fast and lasts for days and days and days!

Also Wet N' Wild: Megalast Liquid Lip Color in Red My Mind and Back to the Fuschia. Obviously, the first is a red color and the second is a bright pink. I seem to be on a bright pink and bright red pigments lately with lipsticks. These are really bright colors but they are really dry. Retail price is about $3.99, so I guess you get what you pay for but if you put some Blistex or Chapstick over it, it's perfectly fine! Compromise. :)

We shall see what June will bring me.

Until next time,

Camera Challenged

Hey there bloggers,

So the time has come in my life that I have come to a realization.  I need a GOOD camera.  Not a cheap cheap this will get me through vacation without fear of destroying it camera.  A good, well working, nice picture taking, wont break my bank or make my boyfriend sigh in frustration camera.


Any suggestions would be lovely because I haven't the slightest idea where to start.
Just... not something that will break the bank (I have my brothers wedding, some plane tickets, and gas for my car to think about)

Love and laughs
