Quick Make-Up Tip:Matte Lips

I love love LOVE my Matte finish lipsticks. They give the perfect finish to my lips without making my already shimmery and highlighted face look to oily. The downside, however, is that my lips get dried out so fast! Even though I exfoliate and moisturize before I pop on a dap of color, my lips end up crackly within hours.
It’s sad. I love my MAC Mattes and even the Satins, which make my lips dry as well. Typically, someone at MAC or any other make up counter would recommend a lip moisturizer. I would to, but in the past few months I found a much better, much effective, and much cheaper alternative.
VASELINE.
Yes girls, Vaseline. That good ol’ petroleum jelly to the rescue. If you know me well, you know that I carry a travel size Vaseline in my purse. Not only is the teeny tiny purse size jar freaking adorable, it’s versatile and makes a superb conditioner for your dry lips. It doesn’t smudge or mess up your color and it last sooooo long!!
For less than $2 you can buy the adorable travel size. That’s a great comparison is the $16 for a lip conditioner at MAC. Vaseline brand, as well as our favorite off brands, also make it in a lipgloss-like tube. They’re harder to find but the same idea.
So gals, that’s a little tip I have for your keeping your lips ash/crust free while wear lipstick with a dry formula.
Let me know what you think!!

Watching some Lifetime movie about a girl who fakes a pregnancy for a school report. I’ve heard of it before and it’s a pretty intense idea. Maybe I didn’t pay a lot of attention in high school, but I only remember two people being pregnant. Regardless, I don’t remember hearing any “I can’t believe she is pregnant, she is ruining her life,” sayings from other people. As a matter of fact, I think teen pregnancy is so standard here that no one thinks twice about it. It’s totally accepted. Is that why I never paid attention to Minnie’s in high school? Although, I do feel that I graduated 8th grade with more pregnant girls than I saw in high school.

If you live in Georgia and you aren’t pregnant or married by the time you are 20, what are you doing?(Not hating on those of you who are out there NOT pregnant, or married and doing your thing. #shoutout)
Shows like “Sex and the City” boggle me. There are 35 year old women who are still dating, have never been married, and don’t have children? Not that there is anything wrong with being single and over 20. TV makes it seem like that is the normal thing to do, but Georgia makes you feel shame if you are.
Does it feel like being alone, without a child, after 30, in the South will give you the same comments as a pregnant teenage girl in high school? Is that crazy?

Visited MAC today in search for a non-fuchsia dark pink lipstick and this is what I found. So in love. It’s Girl About Town, which I’ve been told is Katy Perry’s favorite. Paired up with Magenta lipliner. Super fab…I know. 

 Also got some foundation from Clinique. I know, everyone is MAC crazy when it comes to foundation. I personally have felt the three foundations I’ve owned from MAC have been too grey-toned, too shiny, or too…not up to par. Bobbi Brown has a great line and although more expensive is way worth it. Plus, they have the same great range of colors and it’s hypoallergenic. Ever started to wear MAC foundation and broke out more than normal? That’s because MAC foundation has fragrance and all these other additives you don’t really need in your everyday make-up. 
Clinique seems to be a brand all about “bettering” your skin. They have foundation that also comes in a range of complexions and is hypo-allergenic. Yay for that! Not to mention, they are on the same price level of MAC which is about $20 less than Bobbi Brown AND they always seem to be having a slew of free gifts. Check them out, ladies. (They have samples.)

Women—stay your beautiful curvy selves.

I have recently come to the conclusion that men like real women. And by real, I mean us gals with a little extra. Men are simple creatures. A circle (or curve) is probably easier for a guy to look at and understand than a square…or an octagon. Sharp shapes on women are scary and complex. Hip bones? Six pack? Cut arms? Scary and unreal. Even skinny girls are trying to be curvier on film.

Point blank: chub is where it’s at.

Unless you are an entertainer. They are suppose to be freaks of nature because, like the circus, they are here to entertain.

Stop trying to be skinny and start being you. (I do not encourage hard core fatness.)

Britney Spears - Hold It Against Me (via BritneySpearsVEVO)

Oh Britney. You’ve done it again.

Would constitute an old video as product placement?

I love young pop stars because when they get old, they make dance music. That way, there will eternally be music for go-go dancers in gay night clubs. That’s where all your money comes from now. But I still love Britney!

I hate when celebrities look plain. Could you not go over of your way to dazzle me?

That’s part of the reason why I hate Jennifer Anniston so so much.

I finally got a wand! 
I went to Target and found the Remington Pearl Ceramic wand (clip-less curling iron).  I love it! It heats up to 410 degrees, it’s ceramic, and it’s pink! And for $24.99 it was a way cheaper alternative to the Enzo Milani I was steps away from buying.
