I’m BaaaaaAAaaaaaccckkk!!

Well, mostly back. 😛 My vacation was WONDERFUL, and for those of you that follow me on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook you got to see about 9938535.6 pictures of my trip to Sutton’s Bay, MI and Cleveland, OH.

I also finished up my nail technician apprenticeship at the salon on August 3rd! So now all I have to do is take my state boards and I will be a licensed nail technician! And now that my apprenticeship is over, I will have a normal work schedule again and I’ll be able to devote more time to blogging. Phuck Yeaaahh. 😉

In the meantime since I have nothing else swatched, I’ll do a quick Instagram Spam for you all on my OOTD and NOTD for the wedding I attended in Ohio with Dana/Polished Claws Up! ^_^



OOTD: Silver Sequin and Black Wrap Dress with Coral Peep Toe Pumps
The silver sequins and black wrap dress (as well as the accessories) are all from a store called Maurices. The girl who worked there that day did an AMAZING job with helping me find some great things to try on. And everyone that was on Twitter and Instagram while I was shopping that day did a great job helping me choose which dress to bring home, haha!

The shoes came from a store called Yonkers, and these suckers were marked down from $60. I only ended up paying $18 for them! This entire outfit cost me less than $100 bucks. Hell yes. ♥
FOTD: Neutral Eyeshadow and Orange Lipstick!
And here’s an EXTREEEEME close-up of my mug on the way to the wedding. With it being 90+ degrees and humid as hell in Ohio, I left my flat-iron back in Michigan and sported curly hair all week long. :-) I decided to keep my makeup [mostly] simple since I had such a glitzy dress already.

I used the following:

Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Primer, my trusty Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder Foundation, Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette (LOVE), some random mascara, Eyeko Black Kohl Eyeliner, Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Candy Coral, and L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Fiery Veil (LOOOOOOVE).

Seriously. Fiery Veil is such an awesome true orange shade and it’s so moisturizing, it barely felt like I was wearing lipstick at all. If you love orange, you NEED IT.

NOTD: Girly Glam OPI Pure Lacquer Nail Apps

OPI Pure Lacquer Nail Apps - Girly Glam
I initially planned on doing a Fishtail Braid manicure to match my wedding outfit, but I ended up hating it and I changed my mind last-minute. I remembered that I had these OPI Pure Lacquer Nail Apps in Girly Glam, and they happened to match my wedding outfit pretty damn well. These were just as easy to apply as the last two that I tried. They didn’t hold up as well as the previous ones I wore though. I think I may have been a bit rougher on these than the other two. 😉

Oh, I’ll Just Leave These Here…

Fishtail Manicure - 1st Attempt
Here’s a picture of my failed first attempt at a fishtail braid manicure. Meh. I think I’ll have to choose more opaque colors if I ever try this look again. I think I might try it as an accent nail next time too instead of a full mani. 😛
Ohio Polish Haul
Here’s my small polish haul from our time in Ohio. American Apparel Violet Panache and Smoke Dazzle, SH Insta-Dri In A Flurry (!!!), and Milani One Coat White On The Spot. I’m proud of myself for not going apeshit while we were on vacation. I saved my big splurge for my trip to the LUSH store. 😯
Lush Ohio Haul!
And here’s my haul from LUSH. ♥♥

Clockwise from the left: Lovely Jubblies (gotta keep the girls in check ;-)), Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner, Dark Angels Facial Cleanser (one for me, one for my friend), Mint Julips Lip Scrub (tastes and smells like Andes Mints!), and Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly.

I need to get a better picture of the Sweetie Pie shower jelly. It looks like outer space!
And last but not least, a picture of my boyfriend and I riding on the Raptor at Cedar Point. Once we saw this picture I laughed my ass off, and I had to buy a physical copy of it. 😀 It’s just hilarious to me. I’m thrilled as punch on the ride, my boyfriend is doing a Fonzie impression to the camera, and the poor little boy behind us… may not be enjoying the ride as much. 😛

That’s it for today! I had so much fun while we were out of town and I ate a TON of food. If anyone wants a food spam post too let me know and I’ll make it happen. ^_^
