Fall Nail Trends

I'm looking for new nailpolishes to rock this fall. Usually, I don't care much whats in season. I know of the trends but decide to rock whatever color I want. No matter the season or trend. I think this fall is gonna be very much the same as last. Dark oxblood colors and dark navy colors. And new for this year seems to be jewel-tones. I see them everywhere and I can't say I'm thrilled about it. I don't like the oxblood trend either, but I do like a good deep winepurple colored nail. I have shades that reminds me of that but isn't as deep. I think me and my little eye will have a looksee around and see what we find. As for navy colors, that is one colorfamily that I do not own. I have one kinda in between blue and one pastelly metallic blue. Blue isn't usually a color I opt for on my nails. I'm afraid I'll look dead or like I actually dropped something on my nails. Which is very possible! Something I'm searching for as well is a good lightpink/my-nails-but-better color. A soft everyday polish that will bring some sheen and just the tiniest bit of color. Nothing that will be a disaster if I mess it up at work.

Which colors are you gonna rock this season?

Things I don't wish for, but wouldn't mind getting.

My birthday is soon coming up and I've been twisting the idea of making an entry about it. Not to make it a wish list but more on the side that if any of my family members would find themselves unsure what to get me, this could be of some help. If I straight up wish for something then I know I will never get it from the love of my life. He is weird that way, but I love him. I've tried reversed psychology too and that doesn't work either.

I've been eyeing this for years! But I haven't made the commitment yet to buy it. My current mascara is on it's way to turn bad on me so I will have to replace it soon anyway.

I've emptied my mini travel sized mango bodyscrub from The Body Shop and I loved it. I want to try the raspberry and blueberry one too. They booth smell amazing and like you've just picked the berry itself in the sunlight!

I still want to try this! I remember jumping of joy when I finally saw that this had made it's way over here. This is the only one of her scents that I really like. I'm unsure of the red version of this, enchanted wonderstruck, and I know I definitely do not like her latest scent.

Everyone in every corner of our beautiful planet is raving about this! The Anastasia Brow Wiz. We do have it where I live which is amazing! I'm just gonna have to justify the splurge somehow. I do need a new browpencil since my current one has been around for about two or three years. It's almost finished wohooo.

I am this close to ordering this right now!!

How gorgeous are these? Cold and sparkly, just my taste!




Other things I want that need no photos are a wide-angled camera lens for my Nikon DSLR. People often opt for a zoom lens first but I've found that I more often than not would need a wide-angled lens rather than I would a zoom. The one I have that came with it is pretty ok at both. But I love taking scenery photos and sometimes I have to choose what should be in the shot in order to make a good picture without having to zoom out too much and loose focus. I would imagine come next summer and if the carlife around here steps up their game I will need a better zooming lens.

And a camera tripod would be perfect to have too. It's not that often that I feel the need of one, but with one I won't have to worry about shutterspeed and my shakiness colliding. My camera is amazing at compensating for that on it's own for me.

Speaking of camera accessories I've been meaning to get me some colored filters to play around with.

Nail it Friday. G.O.S.H

One of the things my parents brought back was this nailpolish from G.O.S.H. It drew me in instantly and it is so gorgeous to look at. If I were a nailpolish, this would be me!
 First layer is very shear but it builds for every layer. So you can get it the shade you want.
541 Gasoline.

It's a darker plummier kind of purple with blue and silver microglitters in it. It's simply just stunning. I wore it last week and without a topcoat it lasts me for about five days which is very long. Five days without looking horrendous.

I have no idea how much this were since it was a gift. But if you see it, snatch it and give it a whirl!

Walking on Eggshells

This has been my absolute number one go to eyeshadow palette. I say palette because it has more than two shadows in it. But it is in truth just a trio. They are all shimmery gorgeous shades. For the price I am stoked! I thought they were gonna be chalky and badly pigmented with a lot of fallout and zero lastingpower. They are none of that. They are amazing!





In the last picture I just dampened my fingers and swatched them. They got all metallicy instead of satiny. It's called wetnwild so I had to try the wet part.

The staying power of these are incredible! I usually pair the pinky color with my Maybelline color tattoo in Pink Gold and that combo is stunning! It lasts all day. But even on their own with a primer underneath they last me all day without creasing or having to reblend anything. If I had to say anything bad about it, it would be that I wished there were at least one matte shade in there as a fourth option and that the bronze color were slightly warmer in tone and a bit more umph to it. Wearing all three is doable but it gets a bit too sparkly. Yes, there is such a thing. Over all it's a very nice trio with very wearable colors that works really well. they blend nicely and they are buildable.
At the end of the night you'll have to use some sort of cleanser to get it all of. Just water wont do the trick.

If you want some simplicity in your life, I highly recommend this one!

Because I'm worth it.

I strongly remember that being one of L'Oreals old slogans. No that was "Because you're worth it". Duh. A tiny, but nonetheless, a difference. I've debated a long time whether or not to get the Real Techniques Expert Face brush. I could always get it in a sale somewhere, or I might order a lot from one place where they had it or I could wish for it as a birthday gift. But when it came down to it no-one had a great sale going on on this or they didn't carry it. So I caved and ordered it. Along side it, I happened to order two other goodies. At first glance at them and trying them out on my hand I'm not that impressed. I might keep one and give the other one away. We'll see.

My dog offered to haul the loveliness for me but got bored with having the camera up his face. Here he's saying "Mommy, are you done yet?! I want to have a snuggle instead."
