My Art Print + Wall Art Wishlist from Minted! #minted #art

Sunday, May 24, 2015



Hey Everyone!

Every since the 1st of the year, I've been searching for a new piece of art for one of my bedroom walls. I did a huge purge of my things in January and a mini one this month because transitioning into more of a minimalist lifestyle. More of that as I move into it.:)


I spotted some beautiful pieces on a site called Minted. Minted carries all kinds of cards,gift, paperie, and  stationary and most recently added a stunning selection of art prints and wall art. The wall in my bedroom is not huge so I'm looking a simple print, something that makes me happy each time I look at it. Especially after a rough day!

Here's some I'm loving and wishlisting....I can be so indecisive! 











I took the "organic" process and just scrolled through the page and picked up the pieces that spoke to me. But you could totally use the filter, choosing the type: style, shape, color or Editor's Choice to make a more time efficient choice. Go to www.minted.com/art to  fall into some amazing pieces and refresh the walls, shelves, etc in your home.

Tell me what you think of my choices? Go to www.minted.com/art and let me know which pieces speak to you in the comments!!

Beauty Supply Store Makeup Haul.....

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

Hey Everyone!

It's been awhile since I hauled makeup at the beauty supply store. The two stores go to consistently do not update their makeup selection a lot so I have to wait a couple of weeks between visits to go in to see if anything is new. Yesterday, I ran up on some goodies! Check it out.....




- Kiss Gray Hair Cover for my edges and not my grays. LOL! I have several grays but I haven't got to the point where I'm interested in covering them.

-Stretchy headbands
 -Nicka K HD Concealer in Fawn
-Starry Creamy Concealer Palette in #4
-Beauty Treats Perfect Color Concealer in 06
 -Beauty Treats Neon Lusters in 513
-Kleancolor Madly Matte Lipstick in Fandango. I held off getting a lot of colors of these Kleancolor lipsticks, because I know Kleancolor well and this may not be the lavender purple matte lipstick I want it to be and the other colors may not be either.....well......
 I was right. Kleancolor TRIED it.
Kleancolor Fandango and Neon Lustre 513 swatched. Next.

Do own any of these products? What do you think? Let me know!!!





How To Create a New Mascara!

Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Hey Everyone!


I've seen this tip for years but I had never tried it. Anytime I've purchased a dry formula mascara or have had a mascara dry up before its expiration date, I just purchased a new mascara. However, I've pledged to not to purchase any more drugstore mascara for now but my budget is not allowing for a purchase of high end one either. Sooo.......

I tried the tip to add a couple of drops of contact lens cleanser to your dry mascara to revive it. I added 10 drops of contact lens cleanser to my L'oreal Voluminous Butterfly Intenza. I closed it tight and let it set until the next day. When I applied to my lashes the next day, it was having a BRAND NEW MASCARA!!!

It actually works! Adding a couple of drops of contact lens cleanser to your dry mascara creates a new mascara.  






Will you try this easy, cheap beauty hack? Let me know!!


Fashion Quickies! Tropical Leaf Romper and Fringe Kimono Cardigan.....

Thursday, May 14, 2015

Hey Everyone!!!


I popped in one of my favorite stores, Cato to troll the clearance racks( and to see if this cardigan I want has been marked down....) and found two great on trend pieces. I wear 18-20 and Cato is an AMAZING store for plus size girls, big feet girls, wide feet girls...lol! Even with my very paired down style and love of neutrals, I still find goodies in there. Especially shoes!

Anyway, I decided to try on this Tropical Leaf Romper in 18W-20W. It's cute and comfy! It was marked down to only $14.99.




The romper is also online HERE.



I've been wanting one of those Kimono Cardigans but they look like mini night robes on me. I tried on this one and it was $10.99 but I passed because it looks like a ROBE. LOL! 


Look at Ms. Thang here...looks good on her.... Hmmpt. Buy it HERE. :)


Are you feeling Rompers and Kimonos for the Spring and Summer!?!? Let me know!
