Thrifty Makeup Solutions

Good evening lovelies! I hope you all have had an amazing week so far. I want to talk to you about something that's very important to me: putting on my daily face. I can't go out without it. It evens me out and makes me look like I'm alive as opposed to a century-old vampire who has just risen from the dead. While I was out of town this past weekend, my blush decided to die on me, which of course is never good when one's skin rivals Casper's. In a desperate attempt to put some color on my face, I grabbed an eye pigment my mother never uses, dipped in my finger, and stained my cheek with it. What I quickly learned is that one doesn't need blush to appear to have color: all one needs is a bit of eye pigment, both for the eyes and for the cheeks.

If you find yourself in a situation similar to the one that I was in where there were no stores that carried blush within a walking distance and your blush decides to scatter into the wind, I recommend grabbing for a loose eye-pigment in a color similar to the one that you use for your cheeks. You can use either your fingers [although application isn't quite so smooth] or a medium-sized blush brush. Too small will make the color too concentrated, and too wide won't put anything on it. Medium will apply the color, but make it look like it's blush instead of that you're using eye pigment. This way you save money, and still look amazing.

The trick is to not apply too much or you'll look over done. Just a few strokes and then you're good to go.

Green is the new Black

Hey lovelies! I hope you all are doing well tonight. Finally back on my regular schedule, tonight I'm going to talk about something I read a little while ago and have been seeing in every store as well as online. I read an article a few weeks ago talking about the color for our generation: Green. They said our generation gravitates towards green and chooses it more than any other generation. Also, green is one of the colors for this season. I believe it's perfect timing, but I understand the skepticism of the color green. I know that personally, with my skin tone, the wrong shade of green makes me look like I'm 2 seconds away from death. which is why tonight I will bring various shades of green to make everyone around you green with envy, mwa ha ha!

If anyone has been keeping up with New York fashion week, then everyone has seen that green has been popping up everywhere. Just for a few examples:

Diane Von Furstenberg

3.1 Phillip Lim

Oscar De La Renta

Heart Skips A Beat

Good evening lovelies! I hope you all had an amazing day with your loved ones! Don't worry though if you forgot until the last minute, there are still plenty of gift ideas for both the men and women you have in your lives. That's the wonderful thing about shopping online; the stores never close. Below, I have your 24/7 ticket out of the doghouse. Also, when they ask why it didn't arrive on Valentine's Day, simply state that you didn't want to settle for just anything for them, and you didn't find the right thing until it was much later than when you usually give something. It's not a lie, you DON'T want to settle, which is what I'm here to help you make sure you don't do. 

For Ladies
The thing is, chocolates and flowers are nice. Don't get me wrong, they are, but they're a fail-safe. A few roses and a box of chocolates, you can't loose. It's the safest bet. Unless of course you do something amazing, like what my friend told me about. He was going to send the girl he loves 11 real roses and 1 fake one and write "I will love you until the last rose fades". THAT my friends, is amazing, thoughtful, and utterly romantic. THAT is how you do roses!

Below are some not-so-safe bets, but sure to earn you points because you're paying attention to her personal style.

$10 off $50 or more, also easy to do when ordering for the women in your life.

$1 shipping!!!

Spend $25 and get a $5 gift card! + Lingerie sets starting at only $14!!!!

You can send personalized gift cards.

Some gift ideas

This dress is sexy but demure at the same time. It doesn't show too much cleavage, and short but long at the same time. Also, the color works with almost every skin tone. Throw tights on underneath, leave it bare, either way, it's a beautiful dress, and will be even more beautiful on the girl you love.

These heels are a wonderful wonderful gift because they're basic black, but they're sexy. Some might find them too high, i feel these are excellent for special occasions. I find any reason to wear sky-high heels. Warning to ladies though, wearing these on a date? Make sure you're comfortable in these!!! No man wants to carry his date home and hear about how much pain your feet are in, because lets face it, we wouldn't want to either. Break these in until you're comfortable enough to wear them for a decent period of time.

Ok, odd gift, right? That's why they're on here. They're adorable, reasonable, and go with everything. I've never seen a man give sunglasses as a gift. They're not really thought of as a gift, but they're a practical one. They protect our eyes from the sun and make us look cute. Yaaaaaay!

Two-Way cross body satchel: $24.50 [$14 at checkout from discount]

Don't we as women buy new things for our Valentine's Day dates anyways? How perfect would it be to receive a beautiful, retro-esque purse from your lover that can fit your necessities in? No need to fret, you have the perfect bag that will pop against any outfit. [And good idea men *wink*]

For Men
We can't send men tool kits with a bow on it ladies. Ok, we could, but it'd be really cool to do something a little bit more personalized as well.

Free shipping on orders $50 or more. Very easy to do when shopping your loved man, and you still have time to get them something wonderful!

Some Gift Ideas

Reminds me of Casper the Friendly Ghost.

This is adorable, and then were will be tasty heart-shaped waffles for everyone, so everyone wins, and eats well.

This particular brand teams up with established artists to help raise money to fund local artist growth opportunities.

Acceptable Valentine's Day - Themed Clothing

I see a trend going on nowadays. Girls that are my age or older wearing shirts that say "My boyfriend is out of town" or "I'll be your valentine". Ladies, please stop. You look young, trashy, and like you're desperate. You're not trashy or desperate, but that's how you look when you wear crap like that. We're not 13 anymore, throw those shirts away! Don't worry though, if you're still feeling like you want to show off your Valentine's Day spirit, look no further than below to do it, age-appropriately.
