Lipstick Lover: MAC Candy Yum Yum

I love a bold pink lipstick but I was on the late side when it came to purchasing MAC Cosmetics Candy Yum Yum. I heard so much about it on YouTube so I finally broke down and purchased it!

The $16 was so worth it. The color is so bold and vibrant you could see me wearing it coming from a mile away. It is a great color for the spring and summer months for sure.

Live your dream now: A tribute to Vince Camuto

Live your dream now

I just got wind of the passing of Fashion Giant Vince Camuto. While browsing my daily read feeds I came across a beautiful tribute on Out Of The Box Fashion blog showing all of the fabulous shoes he has designed.  He has contributed so much to the fashion industry from owning his own line Vince Camuto co founding Nine West to owning the master licenses to Jessica Simpson brand. He also partnered with Tory Burch on her footwear line. To say he was a smart business man is an understatement.

I’m Addicted: Army Wives

Where would I be without Netflix? I have no clue! This past Sunday I was bored and I needed a good chick TV series to watch. I wanted to watch The Good Wife but they didn’t have it available. However, under the suggestions they had Army Wives so I decided to give it shot and I must say it has me hooked!

I know the show is fictional but it’s interesting to watch what could possibly go on in the lives of those who protect and serve our country from the view of their spouses. The show follows four army wives and one army husband on their day to day lives. It shows how the deal with being parents, coping with deployment, and their own career goals while being married to the military.

I hate that Lifetime canceled after the 7th season but I guess it had a good run.

Army Wives

I’m currently only in season 2 so I still have 5 whole seasons to go.

Makeup Organization

Last night I finally decided to break out my acrylic makeup and accessory organizers i purchased over the holidays and fill them up. I purchased them both from Burlington Coat Factory, however, I can’t remember what the price of the tray organizer was ( sorry guys). The lipstick holder was only $7.99 so I know the other wasn’t too far off from that price.

Although I have a lot more products I need organizers for, this is a great start

The lipstick holder can hold 28 lipsticks. The spaces in the back are slightly larger than the ones in the front which I think is great for larger lipstick containers.

Here is a photo of the holder filled. I will be purchasing another holder for the rest of my collection

I wasn’t sure what I was going to fill the tray with

I decided to fill the organizers with my lip glosses, nail polish, some makeup brushes, fragrances, and my favorite stud earrings

I absolutely love these acrylic organizers. They give my dresser a letter extra glam and style!
