Update: I'm Back! and Yaz

Sorry it has been so long since my last post. I have been soooo busy with school and family life! I'm a senior in college majoring in Childhood Education and English. My daughter has also started kindergarten so my evenings have been consumed with tons of homework.

My acne also has not cleared up not matter what product I try. So I finally decided to go to a gynecologist since I noticed my periods were irregular as well, figuring it must be hormonal. She prescribed the birth control pill Yaz. I was a little hesitant since I have read so many mixed reviews. Plus, I don't have insurance and it runs me about $85 monthly. <------not very frugal :(

In the first week of taking the pill I felt very nauseous. My cup sized also increased as well an increase in tenderness. These symptoms subsided after approximately three weeks. I currently started my second pill pack and still no improvements. Ive read that it could take 3-6 months to see improvement. I'm crossing my fingers and hope it see improvement soon...

The benefits of taking Yaz have been shorter, lighter periods and less cramping. Still I am very nervous about the increased risk for blood clots!

Anyway, I hope to be more consistent with blogging, since its something I love to do!!

Mini TJ Maxx Haul and Target Boots

TJ Maxx is my favorite store to shop at, since I love a good bargain . Brand name clothing, shoes, makeup, and housewares at awesome prices! I also love Target's clearance section which is where I picked up the boots. In addition to the boots, I also picked up two large lamp shades for $6 each!!

I love anything mint colored, and looking at this mug just made me happy! TJ Maxx $2.99
On my way to the register, I spotted the red mug with hearts and couldnt resist. TJ Maxx $3.99

I also have heard about being able to find theBalm products at TJ Maxx but most of them had missing items or were broken. I was finally able to find one that was intact. It comes with a bronzer that doubles as an eyeshadow, a blush, a lipgloss with SPF 17, and a mini kabuki brush. $9.99

Here are some swatches:

Betty-Lou Manizer is a bronzer which doubles as an eyeshadow. It is the perfect color for my skin tone. However, as a bronzer, there is fine glitter that is visible in the sun. I prefer matte bronzers. No…

Red Lipstick Collection

I have recently become obsessed with red lipstick. I love how it can add a pop of color to a simple look and make it look like you've made some effort.  Check out my latest YouTube video on my red lipsticks:
As promised here are some swatches:

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms in Sultry and Standout

I was a good girl. I wanted to buy all of the Revlon Matte Balms but I held myself back. It took a lot of effort. I picked up the two shades I knew I would get a lot of wear from. These two shades are Sultry and Standout.

Sultry is a gorgeous pinky mauve. 

Standout is a gorgeous deep red.

I really think I might pick up some more. They go on smoothly without tugging. While these are matte, they are comfortable to wear since they are not as drying as most matte lipsticks can be. Until now, I really thought "matte balm" was an oxymoron, but Revlon has done it!
