Time For A Change

I have been tossing around whether to cut my hair short or not for a while now.

I could not tell you the last time I actually went in for a style change & not just a trim or when the last time my hair was actually short.

It was getting out of control and was starting to look hayish damaged  on the ends.

So I asked my sis n law what she thought and she sent me about 6-7 pictures and then she sent me this one and said this was it!

I needed to do it!

No chickening out!!!!

Patrice was a tad bit excited I was doing something new. She informed me that she needed after pics ASAP! Open-mouthed smile

So I made my appointment and sent the picture to my hairstylist Terri.

I think Terri was a bit excited that I was doing something different to. She has been my stylist since 1998 and I can probably count on one hand how many times I have actually had a “style” & not just long hair with a couple layers.

I was a bit nervous. I mean that is only some of the hair that came off of my head!Surprised smile But it’s just hair…breathe….

I also had a glaze put on. Don’t I look stylish in my smock and towel get up. I think I look rather smashing. Rolling on the floor laughing

TADA! As Terri said “Nailed It!”

She did a fabulous job and I love everything about it.

August Ipsy Bag

make up monday new

It’s ipsy bag time! Red lips

My bag came in Friday so I had a chance to try out the products a little bit before this post.

So let’s dive right in:

Pore No More by Dr. Brandt: Full size retails for $45

IMG_2908IMG_2909

This stuff works great for filling in pores but the smell is a little medicinal which I am not a big fan of. The smell does go away pretty quick though but for $45 I am not sure if I will buy a full size.

Red lips

Coastal Scents Forever Blush in Fresh (left) & Elegant (right): Full sizes retail for $3.98

These blushes are so pretty and for the price you really can’t beat it.  They go on beautifully and the color pay off is really good.  Definitely will look into getting some of these.

Red lips

Absolute Lip Balm by Nicka K: Duo retails for $5.99

This smells like grape candy which I happen to like that scent but if you don’t this may not be for you. The verdict is still out on how moisturizing it is though.

Red lips

Lord & Berry Silk Kajal Eye Liner: Full size retails for $16.00

IMG_2915IMG_2916IMG_2917

As you can see I could literally rub this pretty much right off. I have used it twice and both times by about 2-3 hours it was pretty much gone or I had raccoon eyes. Confused smile 

Red lips

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara: Full size retails for $22 (right now it comes with a eye primer)

I did not think I was going to like this mascara but I really do. My only complaint is it did transfer just a little bit on my eye lid other then that I love the formula and the brush.

Red lips

Me and Mr. Scary Mask wish you a happy Makeup Monday!!
