Review on Lush products!

So I was a little iffy about using lush products because I figured it was another fad that was going around and that I just wasn't going to use it blah, blah. Well, I went to the mall and boom there it was and I just gave in. I purchased Dark Angels Cleanser, Grease Lightning, Up you Gets Emotibomb, and Dreamwash. My thoughts... well

Dark Angels cleanser... ABSOLUTELY LOVE!
Grease Lightning... it does work well but I do find that it makes my skin feel like i have a mask on at first. It just feels like I'm wearing something when I put it on. Otherwise, I think its something definitely worth trying.
Up You Gets Emotibomb- I only chunked off a little piece when I first used it and though I smelled the aroma... it just wasn't enough. This is something that I would say you need at least half of it to get a good sense of the product. It is super citrusy from what I could tell. :)
Dreamwash- Okay, okay so I'm not too thrilled about this one but I will give it sometime. The calamine lotion gives it a weird smell and it feels my skin feeling a little odd... I don't know maybe with some prolonged usage I will see some results. :) Don't hesitate to moisturize after using this product because it leaves you with a dry feelinjg.

Betsey Johnson's New Jewelry

I'm totally excited about Betsey Johnson's new jewelry collection! I have been trying to stay away from her stuff for a while because I was buying way too many pieces and I only wear about 30% of the things that I have purchased from her. However, today I was shopping around online and I absolutely must get this necklace!!
I'm going to have to purchase this!! I absolutely love it! A lot of her new stuff has a python hearts on them (tres cute! btw). Definitely something to check out. All of her jewelry is really fun and funky! Every time I wear one of her necklaces I get so many compliments. Her necklaces range from 35-150. I think the one that I want is $50. So go check her out if you haven't already at www.betseyjohnson.com She is one of my absolute favorite jewelry designers!

Lauren Luke & Rockers

Its no secret that I'm one of Lauren Luke's fans on youtube but I still haven't gotten around to ordering one of her palettes yet. Well, if you are like me that will be an easier task to attain because they will be available on sephora.com to order.

Click here if you want to watch some of Lauren Luke's videos using her makeup palettes.

Now on to fashion! Let me just throw this out there... I'm a normal girl with simple means and I in no way or fashion claim to be a fashion or makeup guru. They are just hobbies to me. So if I seem to be a little late with trends or I just seem to come off like I don't know much about makeup... well you are probably completely right.

Having said that... I am loving this rocker trend. Here are a few inexpensive pieces that can make a simple outfit seem more rocker! I will post a description of each one and a link to where you can get these items at after pics.




1. Findd by Steve Madden. These shoes would look great with a pair of skinny jeans and a rock inspired top! Only 90! Available Here.
2. Pearl Rhinestone Chain Necklace by Guess?. If you are looking to just play up an outfit this necklace would do wonders. The many layers will give your plain jane outfit a lift and make you look rockerific in a heart beat! Available Here.
3. Chain Strap Tank by Silence and Noise. Though I couldn't find the tank that I was thinking of... this tank, though suttle, has rock written all over it. Available Here.

Rock on!

Maybe I'm too young for this... oh well!!

Let me be super clear on this... I'm only 24 years old and I in no way, shape, or form have any wrinkles! However, I do think prevention is a good way to go about things... especially with inevitable. So naturally I purchased Neutrogena's healthy skin rejuvenator because it does 2 things I liked... it helps with the prevention of aging and it gives a good scrub! I've only used it 3 times but I honestly think that its making a difference in the way that my face feels. My face feels super soft after and I have noticed that some of my blemishes have disappeared (great bonus)! My skin is acne prone so I am constantly trying to find ways in which to prevent that as well. Another great thing about this product is that its very affordable. I got the starter kit for $35. It comes with plenty of pads so I imagine I wont need another refill for maybe a month.
