Happy New Year Friends. I hope you all had an amazing Holiday. We are back with another swap. This month the theme I choose was Planner Girl. You dont have to be a planner girl to participate. You can just just love stationary stichers and washi tape. :) Please read all the details before signing up. 




The Details:

The spending minimum is $10. You are more than welcome to spend more which I think most of us do, but please spend wisely. One GOOD useful item is better than a bunch of smaller items that might not be as useful. I hope that makes sense. So just keep that in mind when your shopping and putting together your package. Also, PLEASE be mindful when you are packing your items for shipping. Package them well so nothing is broken.

I will start emailing partners out on January 5th if I do not have your shipping info by this day you will NOT be able to participate.

Best Purple Lip Products

Finding the perfect lip color that suits you is kinda tricky to find. I would have NEVER in a million years thought that I would like myself with PURPLE lips. I was quite surprised that I really really love purple undertoned lip colors. I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you. 


These are in no particular order I love them all for different reasons.


Too Faced Melted Matte in Queen B. 

I love the formula of these liquid lipsticks. They are very thin in consistance and not overly drying. They last about 5-6 hours on the lips too.


This is more of a nude shade but it defiantly has a purple undertone.


Too Faced Melted in Fig

This is a little bit of a bolder color. But it's perfect for fall. This is probably my favorite out of the bunch. I loved it enough I wore for family pictures. Thats saying a lot :)


It a rich plum color without being too bold. 


Tarte Glossy Lip Paint

This is first purple lip product that I bought. I love these glosses. They last longer on the lips than any other gloss that I own. The pigment is quite strong considering it's a gloss. 


The shade is a plum purple color with a hint of gray. (I am horrible with explaining colors).


Katy Kat Matte- Kitty Purry

I like the formula of these Katy Kat lip products. I did a full review of them. They are not completely matte which I am totally ok with. They are nice a creamy. They do not last a super long time on the lips, though. This is an affordable option if you just want to test the waters with purple lip colors.


This is a lighter nude with a purple undertone.


Urban Decay- Backtalk

This is one of Urban Decay's new Vice Lipsticks. It is a comfort matte. These are not drying and last pretty well on the lips.


The is a pinkish purple color. A perfect every lip color.

Tell me what your favorite lip color to wear is. I  want to challenge you to try something that is out of your comfort zone. You never know you might be just as surprised.

Have a great day!

Painted Ornaments

It wouldn't be the Christmas season without some fun crafty projects.  These adorable ornaments are making me all heart eyes. 


These are so easy to make. They are perfect for my little tree I got at Walmart. I also think they would be cute tied on a Christmas package. That's my favorite idea.

What you need:



Acrylic Paint

Bulbs (Hobby Lobby)

Bakers Twine



These are so simple. Fill the bulb about half way with paint and shake.


Once you have covered the whole thing. Stand up to let the rest of the paint drip back into the bottle. 


Be sure to let it sit awhile. If you don't then the paint will collect in the bottom and you will be able to see it.


The possibilities are endless with colors.


I love love love the way they look on my little Christmas tree.


If you make them please share a picture on Instagram and tag me in it. I would love to see what you come up with.
