Makeup Monday ~ Pink Glittery Eyes

Today's makeup look is what I call my drag queen makeup.  It is a little too over the top for every day.  I wore this look on a night out with my husband to see the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra chamber players (outfit post coming tomorrow).

I apologize for my terrible facial expressions in these photos.  It was extremely cold and rainy outside when I took these pictures a couple of days ago.  I was so miserable, but it was the only day that I could take pictures.

Products Used:

  • L'Oreal Magic De-crease Eyelid Primer
  • Sugarpill Eye Shadow in Dollipop
  • Prestige Eye Shadow in White
  • Sally Girl Sparkle Effects Loose Glitter in Fuschia-Lisous
  • Duo Eyelash Adhesive in clear/white (for glitter to stick)
  • Maybelline Master Duo Eye Liner in Black Lacquer (upper)
  • Maybelline EyeStudio Eye Liner in Blackest Black (lower)
  • Wet 'N' Wild Eye Liner in White  
  • Rimmel London Scandaleyes Mascara in Extreme Black 
  • Wet 'N' Wild Fantasy Maker Lipstick in Black 

I hope you enjoyed this makeup look and thanks for reading!

Which outfit was your favorite?

I am so glad March is over.  April is one of my favorite months.  My birthday (which is tomorrow) and my wedding anniversary are in April.  Other things to look forward to in April are Major League Baseball season starts, the final four (even though Michigan lost), hockey playoffs (Go Pens!) and spring weather.  Goodbye March.  Hello April!

Bad Hair Day

::Outfit Details::

Red Zebra Faux Fur Coat ~ ? (Really old)

Black Short Sleeve Turtleneck ~ Forever 21

Black and White Mod Checkered Leggings ~ Forever 21

Black Patent Leather Boots ~ Frederick's of Hollywood

Lipstick ~ Wet 'N' Wild Fantasy Maker Lipstick in Black

I apologize for my bad hair in these photos.  I have been having a mental struggle with what to do with my real hair.  I love my wigs and hate my real hair.  I am debating whether to cut it.  Most of the week, my hair is pulled up into a bun while I work.  When I go out, I usually wear a wig.  But, my hair is like a security blanket.  I am just more comfortable with it long.  I'd love to know what you guys think.  Should I cut it?

Thanks for reading!

Dots and Stripes

::Outfit Details::

Polka Dot Sweater ~ Forever 21

Striped Tube Dress (wore as a skirt) ~ Express

Black Patent Belt ~ came with a different dress

Black Patent Boots ~ Frederick's of Hollywood

Long Red Wig ~ eBay (see review here)

Lipstick ~ Wet 'N' Wild Fantasy Maker Lipstick in Black

This is one of my favorite new outfits so far.  I love stripes and polka dots together.  It is such a fun combo. 

I am so glad that I bought this tube dress from Express (my Valentine's day present).  It is very versatile.  Not only can I wear it as a dress, but as a skirt like I did today.  I can't wait to come up with different ways to style this dress.

I'm Broke

::Outfit Details::

Black Blazer ~ Charlotte Russe

Cropped Graphic Tee ~ Forever 21

Black Faux Leather Leggings ~ Forever 21

Black Patent Boots ~ Frederick's of Hollywood

Long Red Wig ~ eBay (see review here)

Lipstick ~ Wet 'N' Wild Fantasy Maker Lipstick in Black

While at Forever 21 the other day, my husband found this graphic tee.  He said I should get it because I'm always broke.  After thinking about it for a few days, I decided I had to have it.  It was perfect for me.  I am always broke.

With less than a week to go until my birthday, I thought I would give you an update on my weight loss.  I started on this journey at the beginning of November.  My goal was to lose 38 pounds by my birthday.    I have lost 34 pounds so far and will come up a little short.  I've been losing about 2 pounds a week recently.  So I will be off by a week.  Ultimately, after the 38 pounds, I want to lose 5 more pounds.  In my opinion, that extra 5 pounds will take me to the weight that I should be for my height.  Losing weight is really hard especially when you live with someone that can eat anything and is in perfect shape.  But, I am extremely happy with my progress and I can't be disappointed that I didn't reach my goal.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!
