Moving on! This is a weird post because it doesn't have any real rhyme or reason to it. I did a little shopping this weekend, and it was more clothes than make up, to tell you the truth. I haven't bought a lot of cosmetic items lately. I think I may have babbled about this topic in a past entry, but it's starting to get to that point where I really have to think things over before I buy, ya know? I do admit that I did break down for one item last week. If you have been reading around the beauty community, you would have known that the Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. 2 dropped last Friday (two days after the photos leaked on a certain makeup board....oops!). I thought about it for....oh, two seconds? Then hit purchase ;) That was quite an investment, but all of the colors look beautiful, much better than the last Book in my opinion. I'm totally stoaked for it to arrive on my doorstep :D
I made a stop to a nearby town to pay a visit to the new Forever 21. I was never a fan of the store before, but since they have introduced a "plus size" (and I use that term loosely) line, I have since not been so harsh. I say "plus size" because honestly....this is pretty much normal sizing. And I'm not going to lie, I'm not miss Skinny Minnie or anything, so I never had any business stepping foot into a Forever 21 store before in the first place (except for maybe a headband or something). So I was pretty thrilled when I heard they were extending their sizes to all women of different sizes. So color me shocked when I go in an find that I have to buy a 2x in some things......um. What? And when I put it against my other clothing, it's pretty much the same size of my large sized shirts. Whatever. I'll stop there. I can bitch and complain about sizing for days. But I'm so hypocritical that I'll go in a drop a couple of twenty's easily.
Here's what I left with:
Then I hopped over to Hot Topic. There are no words for this tee:
You know I love my MJ. When I saw this shirt I loved it so much I practically ran out of the store with it. They had a few other MJ shirts, but this one was clearly the best. Why? CARTOON ZOMBIES. They also had some MJ stickers which I bought as well (I'm heavily considering putting the "I heart MJ" sticker on my car).
Last, but not least, I made an ADD-fueled visit to Wal Mart with two of my cousins (seriously, I love them and all but I spend too much money when I'm with them! We would be walking the aisles and all of a sudden one of us would say something like "OMG I NEED THIS BLENDER.....HEY, BAND-AIDS!!!") and FINALLY found the new Wet n Wild products!!!!!
The new Craze nail polishes are all that they are hyped up to be. The only one I wanted was Morbid, a beautiful, dark, blueish-green. Then picked up the adjusting foundation. Let me tell you, it's magic. It must be made of unicorn tears and butterfies. I'll definitely be doing a full review of this, but when it says it adjusts to your skintone, it really does adjust to your skintone. The Ressesionista did a fabulous review on this, including a video of the magic in action.
One more thing before I wrap this up; I tried my hand at "frankening" my own nail polish. Frankening is basically mixing your own polish colors. One color that I haven't seen yet (or if there is, TELL ME!) is a black with green glitter. I've seen every other kind of color glitter in a black base, but not green. So, I made my own. I went to Michael's Craft store and picked up this nifty pack of glitters for $3. This particular glitter is a bit finer than regular craft glitter, so they're better for nail polish.
Here is the result!
Basically it's Wet n Wild black nail polish, Wet n Wild clear polish, and the glitter. I'm quite happy with the result. I don't have any pictures on my nails, so here it is on a swatch wheel (this is two coats):
One more word.......I want to wish a belated Happy Birthday to a sweet and wonderful gal, Aly from The Gloss Menagerie!!!! Hope you had a great day ♥
