Selfie Snap

I am a member of the shaky selfie club.  We can't hold the phone straight, it wobbles all around, we can never find the damn snap button, and our selfies look like we are entering the early stages of a shaking disease.

I have to constantly apologize for blurry selfies, take thirty of the damn things, and then go deleting all the ones I can't use while keeping the "ehh I guess it'll do" ones.

Enter into my world the "Selfie Snap".  You download the app on your phone, open it up, and snap away. All while holding your phone securely in one hand and hitting a button in the other.  No more "losing" the snap button on your phone, jostling things around to find where the button is, and best of all no more shaky hands! I mean, there will always be shaky hands, BUT NOT AS BAD!.

My only hangup with this little gem is I keep forgetting about it.  I go about my day and forget it's in my pocket. It also makes this terrible noise when you take pictures so if you thought this would help you with your "descrete" photos of the odd people you see during the day, this does not help that agenda.  

Go Get Selfie Snap!!!

Does anyone else love a good sale?
How about a good sale on already inexpensive makeup?

I have been a religious devotee to the world of E.L.F makeup, so when a sale flyer popped up in my inbox I threw caution to the wind and went wild.

Now I know this looks a little crazy, and I do agree it is, but all this for well under $50? Uh yes please.

I did give some away, and one nail polish came already dried up so that went in the bin, but I kept/love/use/will use a lot of this.

I'll do a review on some of the pieces I thought were really neat later.  

Do you guys have any E.L.F favorites?
Any extra special websites you visit to get makeup? You know, a girl can never have enough!

Forever 21 Jewelry Binge

Hi Guys! Long time no post. 
Sorry for the absence but I've been dealing with a little bout of the good 'ol blues. 
But enough of the sad stuff and onto the shiny goodies!

About a month ago I went home to see my beautiful starfish Marceline turn one! The trip was full of family and food and reflection. It also called for a shopping trip beforehand so I knew I was summer ready and full of that extra sparkle for those late night trips out.  Tenesha and I headed out to Forever 21, caught a hella good sale, and went craaaaazy with the jewelry.


As you can see I went a tad bit overboard with the nose rings.  I really want to get one but I'm still unsure if I want to make that commitment.  So instead of jamming a needle through my nose I got some faux rings to see A) If I can handle anything being in my nose like that, and B) If I still like how it looks after 5 minutes.  The answer to both of those is I still need a little more time to decide.

I got some feathers for my hair (which I didn't use because my hair was never down), some pretty ear cuffs, a gorgeous chain for my hand and a HONEYCOMB RING! (Can you tell which one I like the best?).  

What are some of the summer accessories you picked up along the way?
