CoverGirl's New NatureLuxe Foundation and Gloss Balm

Images from

The latest BzzCampaign I signed up for was the CoverGirl NatureLuxe campaign! BzzAgent sent me the products to try out and give my honest opinion to friends and family. So that is what I'm going to do! (: This new line of products from CoverGirl is really clever. I love how they are showing that they use natural items in their products so it is actually good for you!

Liquid Silk Foundation:
I would rate this product 3 out of 5 stars on my terms.

1 star: for doing what it is intende in covering my blemishes and evening out my skin tone
1 star: for the creaminess and ease of application. Went on really smooth!
1 star: for using jojoba, cucumber extract, and other natural ingredients! Woohoo!
Minus 1 star: for being too heavy for my oily skin
Minus 1 star: for being the wrong color - technically MY fault but yeah.

Gloss Balm:
I would rate this product 5 out of 5 stars!

1 star: for being glossy with being sticky!
1 star: for being available in 16 shades!
1 star: for having SPF 15 in it. I love that about lip products, it is great for the Spring and Summer!
1 star: for being sheer but giving just enough tinge of color to make your lips look luscious!
1 star: for being super moisturizing and smelling good!

Definitely check out the gloss balm if anything, it is a must have for any purse (:

The Home Stretch!

Just a few more weeks and it will be summer break once again! It makes me wonder how I survived high school, which didn't get out until near the end of June! This coming break is going to be EXTRA exciting though because the first week I'm done with school is my 21st birthday!!! I've definitely been waiting for this day to come for a long time. It seems there is always some kind of age limit for everything up until you are 21. I'm going to have a fun birthday week that is for certain.

With the last few weeks of classes comes 50 tons of stress as well though! I'm going to think of ways to try and beat the stress and I'll make a new blog post or video about them soon. (:

For now, leave your best stress-busting tips below and I might mention you in my next blog or video!
Also, follow me on twitter for quick communication and updates!

Sick Before Vacation!

So Saturday I will be going with my boyfriend and his family on a much needed vacation! (: I am so excited and so thankful. One problem, I GOT SICK! Nothing major (knock on wood), just a cold, but it is super annoying having to blow my nose a hundred times a day and feel like I'm going to sneeze every 5 minutes. Sigh... I just took Dayquil an hour ago, so far, nothing.

If anyone has any good get better quick remedies please let me know on here or Twitter! I'd love the advice. Is anyone else going on vacation anytime soon? Leave a comment to this post!

Talk to you soon,

New Years Resolutions 2011

Yet again I've been neglecting my little blog over here.  So here is a post to kick off the new year! My new years resolutions! I wanted to write a blog specifically stating each one that way I can always be reminded of them and so will all of my followers. If you want you can tweet me or comment throughout the year checking up on me. (:

1. Get in shape and make healthier choices.
Yes, I know this is the number one resolution that people make every year, but I know I can do this! Last year I did it for two straight months and I felt and looked better than ever, then I had some issues in my life that gave me an excuse to revert back to comfort eating and being lazy. I never got the inspiration to really kick it back into gear so this year I'm at it again!

My favorite way to do this is to have a breakfast smoothie every morning, have a healthy lunch, and then eat whatever my family cooks for dinner. If I go out, I just make stick to the better options, although I never really restrict myself If I want something that isn't the best. I just don't eat a lot of it and don't do it often.

As for exercise, I am starting the Couch to 5K plan again! Yay! For all the information about this 9 week running plan follow this link:
Along with this I work out on the Total Gym in our house five days a week and do pilates using the Ana Caban DVDs by Gaiam three times a week.

2. Sleep more

This doesn't mean sleep late. What this resolution means is to get to sleep earlier and wake up earlier. I want to get at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night though. I'm tired of going to bed at 2 or 3 and waking up at 11 or 12. (Yes, winter break has got me into this bad bad habit!)

3. Make more videos on my YouTube channel.

I feel like I neglected my YouTube big time in 2010. The whole middle of the year (Spring/Summer) I stopped making videos and I truly missed it! To make up for this I want to make a lot more videos this year and have them more consistent instead of 2 one week, none the next and one the week after that.

4. Go to church more.

I'm Roman Catholic and I love my faith and going to mass and being an active member of the church community. This past Summer and Fall I've missed so many Sunday masses that I just feel terrible about it. I really want to get back to my church and closer to God. <3

5. Write in my journal more.

I love looking back at my old journals from middle and high school. There are tons of poems, doodles, and real emotions poured into them that I forget even existed until I flip back through them and read a little. I know these years of my life are truly precious when I'm learning and discovering new things about myself and the world around me. I don't want to forget what I feel and the memories from this age so I really want to get back into consistently writing in my journal.

6. Pay off my credit card

I made the common mistake of charging part of my college tuition on my credit card. Then I charged more stuff on there and yeah, let's just say there's more money on that thing then I have in my bank account. So what do I need to do this year? PAY IT OFF! Then I want to burn that thing and never see it again! Those things are evil. In the meantime I have my dad holding the card in his lockbox that way I can't use it I can only make payments on it. I plan to make payments on it twice a month with each paycheck I get that way I will have it payed off by the end of the year. If I get a better job with better money I can even have it paid off by the end of summer! That would be great! (:

Okay! So those are all my new years resolutions! I know with the help of my friends, family and wonderful boyfriend (pictured below!) I can stick to them!

<3 (: LOVE!

Okay that is all for now. Sorry this is so long and probably no one will read it, but like I said before this is also a great reminder to myself of my goals for this year and I need to stick to them. (:
