Mega Beauty Blog Hop Giveaway!

Nothing to Disclose



Who doesn't love a giveaway?! I know I do! (I never win, but that's because I'm unlucky! :D) Today, as part of a THIRTY-FIVE blogger super mega ultra giveaway, I'm giving away my newest obsession...the Too Faced Just Peachy mattes palette! It's recently become an absolute staple in my makeup routine, because the shadows are so pigmented, and they are surprisingly velvety! I've been wearing this nearly every day since I got it, and I think I've finally used every color, lol! My favorites are Peach Tea, Peach Punch, Peach Sangria, and Peach Tart, since they go well with my blue eyes and gingery hair! :D

Below is your chance to win this awesome palette (valued at $45!) ----AND $350 cash if you enter every blogger's giveaway! WHHHHHHAAAATTTT!??!!  Score.

See more information about the cash giveaway and find out all the other bloggers and prizes in the information after the jump.

Girl's Night Outback!

Press Event

Thunder From Down Under flatlay

That accent...those abs...those nails?! Wait. How do those things go together? Well, the Vegas Lifestyle Influencers had one heck of a Girls Night Outback at the Thunder From Down Under show at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino, and OF COURSE I had to do nails to match! I mean, obviously, right?! I've made it no secret that I'm a sucker for a nice smile and killer set of abs, but add an accent on to that beautiful package and I'm 100% sold. In today's post we're going to focus on not only the nails, but I'm going to share a little about the show with you, too!

The nails:

To commemorate the night, I decided to do some nail art inspired by the homeland of these musclebound hunks, so I painted my nails with the Australian flag, which is a royal blue flag with the Union Jack in the upper left corner, a 7-pointed star in the lower left (known as the Commonwealth Star), and the Southern Cross, a constellation containing four 7-pointed stars and one small 5-pointed star on the right half of the flag. Man. Those 7-pointed stars are something else to paint, and there are SO MANY OF THEM. I hope those boys liked 'em! :D

I used Londontown Lakur in Paddington Blue, Londontown Lakue Double the Deck, and white acrylic paint for this design, and it took for damn ever. :-D Totally worth it for the photo op below alllll by itself. Hahaha.

Now that Summer has officially started, I am 100% ready for fall. Fall has always been my favorite season...I love the colors, the smells, and most of all, the temperature. We're positively melting here in Vegas–on Tuesday it was 118º, so it's no wonder that I am looking forward to fall! I'm not sure why I chose Las Vegas as my home, I've always hated the heat, and this place is B-R-U-T-A-L.

In hopes of speeding autumn my way, I have the Gelish Matadora collection for fall to show you today! This collection will be available in August, and you're definitely going to want to pick up this Spanish inspired color set! Hit the jump for swatches!

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab American Gods Swatches and Review

Press Sample


What comes to mind when you think of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab? For me, it's vials of potions and scents that are completely unique. I have a few of their scents, one of which was made for the Mütter Museum in Philadelphia, and it has notes of old books (my fav!), leather, balsam, and raw vanilla. As soon as I read the description, I knew that I had to have it. But, I digress, we're not here to talk about fragrances today, we're here to talk about the amazing new American Gods nail polish collection that is amazing from the candy pink crelly of Easter to the chartreuse and gold glitter of Coin Trick. Come with me, and we'll travel the world of Neil Gaiman's American Gods after the jump!

SHOES. They're my one TRUE love...sorry Chris, if you're reading this. They've always been there for me, and even through pain, and sometimes blisters, my love is unconditional. I love them all, heels and flats, wedges (even though I suck at walking in them) and platforms, even stilettos. The only shoe that I just can't get behind is the kitten heel. I just don't understand it, but I digress.

Last night there was an event that really was a perfect fit for me. It was at the Donald J Pliner store here in Las Vegas, so it satisfied my love of shoes, but it was also paired with something that tugged my heartstrings–an organization that works with people who have Parkinson's disease, and having a close family member afflicted by it, I was SO happy to be able to be a part of it.

Please hit the jump to read more about the event, the shoes, and the amazing organization!
