Momo's Questions for me are:

1. What inspires you to Blog? I love sharing the thrill of of good shopping trip with others, letting others know where a good deal can be found, and sharing beauty tips and tricks that I learn.

 2. What celebrity do you admire most? Hmm I would say Dita Von Tease my style is totally different but I love the way she is always perfectly coiffed, polished, and poised.

3. What are your plans for this Summer? I have a little boy and I plan to take him to the beach for the first time this summer. I plan on visiting a water park for the first time in a long time. I also plan on rocking a fabulous plus sized vintage inspired tankini with big glamourous shades, huge curly hair, and absolutely no shame.

 4. What are your best Beauty Tips to give someone? I actually got this tip from my Mom. Use Vaseline for darn near everything. After your bath or shower at night Moisturize your feet, then put on a thick coating of vaseline, and over that a pair of cotton socks. Sleep in the socks overnight and wake up to super soft feet. It also makes an awesome moisturizer when I'm wearing a dress and want my legs to look smooth, soft, and to have a nice sheen. I apply a thin layer of vaseline then my urban decay shimmering body powder to highlight the center of my legs then my legs have a superstar glow.

5. What cartoon character are you most like & why?
Sawako from Kimi ni Todoke because she's very quiet and shy and I'm that way at least at first.

Amazing Deals

Ladies if you didn't know already let me tell you now I love a good deal. I received word of some awesome deals today and I just had to share.

First up is Madame Madeline
This is an absolutely awesome site that sells faux lashes. When I found this site it was like I had died and gone to lash heaven the selection is huge and the prices are really good even before the sales and promos that they run quite frequently. Well currently they are running a promo for %15 off your order just enter the promo code COMPACT at checkout. This promotion will end on June 4th so Ladies take advantage I know I will be stocking up on my beloved Demi Wispies!

Next I heard about a site called Haute Look
on my favorite past time Youtube where you can get really great discounts on name brand goods. You do have to join the site to take advantage of the deals but there is absolutely no obligation to buy anything. You will be sent emails with the days sale events, new deals are added each day for different things like shoes from a certain designer, or makeup from a certain brand. The only draw back is that no doubt you will see something that you just have to have everyday. I received my Today's Events email and saw that there were deals available on NYX! I have a few of the shade sticks and I love the lip glosses that I have tried but I've been wanting to they their shadows and this is the perfect time for me to do it. They have a huge palette with - 36 Eyeshadows- Highlight & Contour Powder - 2 Dual-Sided Bronzers - 5 Blushes - 5 Lip colors - Includes applicator brushes and mirror that normally sells for $30 for just $18 that's 40% off
Also if join using my link I get a $10 credit when you make your first purchase. Here's my link

Collective Haul Sleek Makeup, MAC, and Ardell

I've been picking up a few things here and there over the past couple months and wanted to share. I'll start with the nail colors first I love to stop and pick up a pretty polish when I'm at the drugstore but I rarely find the time to actually polish my nails lately. I'm going to resolve to actually polish my nails this week. But anyway here is what I picked up
From left to right: Neon Pink Love & Beauty by Forever21 $2.80, Porcelian Party by Maybelline Color Show about $2, Tart Deco by Essie $8.00

Next is my order from Sleek they are a UK Drugstore brand I keep seeing the eyeshadow palettes used on youtube tutorials so I wanted to try them for myself.

I ordered 1 Blush color "Life's a Peach" a beautiful peach color $6.50, An eyeshadow palette in "Oh So Special" $10.50, and a lipstick in the color Fuchsia A beautiful blue based pink $6.00 I love this color.

Next Items I got were lashes the first ones I ordered from Pinky Paradise they are a Japanese brand called I love matsuge. I ordered bottom lashes in the syle Dolphin Eye the box contains 5 sets for $19.99, I picked up 2 boxes of Ardell Wispies from Target (but I lost one uggh) $3.89 each, and I ordered 6 boxes of Ardell Demi Wispies from Madame Madeline they were having a sale on them they were 2.48 each then I had a 10% coupon code KSHARE which brought them down to just $2.24 a set! That's a pretty awesome deal I just started wearing Demi Wispies and I LOVE them.

I picked up two new lippies I didn't even go to the mall to visit Mac I stopped by Nordstrom for shoes sadly I didn't find any shoes I liked but the MAC counter was close by. As soon as I laid eyes on this color I knew I had to have it the girl behind the counter told me there were only 2 left (lucky me) the name of the color is Reel Sexy from the collection of the same name $14.50, The next one is a Wet and Wild lip color I bought on a whim because it was on sale for just $1.00 unfortunately there is no number or name on the tube. it's a pale pastel pink that looks slightly lavender and it looks horrible on me so Im lucky it was just $1 lol, the last one is the Sleek lippie in fuchsia I just took another pic of it.
Swatches left to right: MAC Reel Sexy, Wet and Wild, Sleek Fuchsia
The last item I purchased at Walmart and I was so surprised to find these there they're brush guards. I've been looking for these for a while to keep my makeup brushes in nice shape after I wash them. Unfortunately I don't remember how much I paid for them and I can't find them on the Wal Mart website.
Thanks for checking out my Haul Gorgeous Gals and please feel free to comment or ask questions.
