It's Friday and I'm tired physically and mentally. But God is wonderful, magnificent, and worthy of praise, praise and praise!!!! I got to get my energy up!!
This is a cool little haul I got last Friday. The VS Sexy Little Things e/s in Purr and Flirt are from the Victoria's Secret in Columbiana Center Mall( When I stopped through the Metro to have lunch with a friend) and the VS Beauty Rush l/g in Berry Latte and VS Sexy Little Things Glitter Lash in Pink are from the Charleston King St. Store. Altogether...$12.80 spent.
Full Face with a Wet N' Wild Bronzzer that I don't think matches anymore. I look ashy. I chunked that thing!
The eyes...I should've blended but I applied the e/s' wet so that the glitter wouldn't be all over my face. That Purr e/s is GORGEOUS!!! If you can get me some of these in a different colors other than what I got at your VS Semi-Annual Sale( The Spartanburg Store didn't have ANY) let a DIVA know... email@example.com.
The Glitter Lash in Pink is so fun. The SA at the King St. Store sold it to me like a sales monster. She knew her stuff and compared it to Smashbox 24Kt Golden Effect Top Coat Mascara...which I was thinking about as I was holding it. Was she reading a Diva's mind?Spooky. Any way I bought it and almost bought the other tube left.
Also got those great sponges at Target two weeks ago by N.Y.C. The different shapes and angles helps me get under my eye to clean up messes. But they need to be thicker and spongy-er.
Have a great weekend. I got to work.:(

The show was boring... so I started to do my nails and because I'm impatient, I used Sally Hansen Shea Butter Rapid Finish. Just a spray and 30 seconds and my nails were dry and glossy and stayed glossy. I got this at my CVS for 50% off.
It's perfectly exciting...:)

Lawd help me! This shop of overwhelming beauty caught my eye as soon as we got on King Street. It had every line you could possibly dream of for little country girls like me with big city taste. Let me be even more honest with my beauty obsessed divas...
It was the first time I ever smell and touched a Bond No 9 fragrance and they had like 50 of them.
They also had this new line called of cosmetics called Stephanie Johnson.
They even had Elnett hair spray, you know the hair spray they claim you can't get other than LA or NYC or Europe? It was right slab in the middle of Charleston, South Carolina.
I got nothing. I had no time because I was with some peeps but I will always remember the beauty orgasm I had when I saw my beloved Er'go Candles in every scent( I used to get them at Metro Deluxe when it was in Charlotte) and the Kevin Aucoin Brushes...
I finally figured out where I got these earrings for 5.00 a piece. So Good Jewelry!

It was hot as hell and then it would rain like straight hell. So I was wet with sweat and wet with rain.
Top: The Limited
Earrings:I can't remember but I'm going blog on it later...
Dang!!I wished I remember where these earring were from!!I got them in Charleston, on King Street, in this store that was MILES of accessories!!! And I was going to blog on it because I got some other cute earrings there too! Ugh!

I actually found a place in Spartanburg( Trade Secrets in the Westgate Mall) that sells Essie Nail Lacquer. I picked up Shorty Pants from the Neon Collection and I'm rocking it for the weekend.
I also threw this in my handbag for the weekend. Lumene Express Touch Cleansing Wipes have helped me so much this week. I've been serious worn out when I come home from work and I just use one of these and it gets the makeup off(Because I will sleep with makeup on in a minute). I wish they made this is in a bigger size!
Sally Hansen know they have step the game up in there lip product department( have you seen their "Lip Lab")!!! I've been rotating between the Comfort Shine Lip Glaze in Sugar Cookie and the Natural Butter Lip Shine in Fresh all week. There was no way I wasn't taking these with me to Charleston! They both feel yummy and smooth on the lips and give a sexy natural look to my pout for the summer.
Well...Pray for my traveling mercies and that this GPS thingy works and have a great weekend!!

With the flash(at 6:00 this morning): I did the blue the corners, the orange in the center of the lid and the yellow in the inner corners. The color payoff is HORRIBLE! It took about four layers just to get this color. All the colors are super sheer and I was using a Sonia Kashuk sponge applicator tipped brush so I could get the vibrancy. I put that brush down and went to work with a basic stiff eyeshadow brush. Nothing. Nothing like I thought it would be.
Without the flash.
Full face: I wasn't happy but I might try it wet. I don't know.

No more fried chicken this summer for me. I feel like I need to throw up. Ugh.
But I feel cute in my Day-Off-From-Le Lion ensemble. Got some of emotional focus back. Got knocked on by back last week and the first part of this week. Truth is...my Smoogie and my Noogie are going to the Plaintiff's for the week and I'm already experiencing missing them. I needs my babies, ya'll! And Father's Day is Sunday:(

So, I was sitting in the Mickey's D drive thru during lunch time Tuesday flipping thru a Lucky mag and ran across the collection AGAIN. And the price of each. $25 a bottle. Now if I was rolling in little money, hell, I would call that boutique and L.A. and tell them send all four, promptly. But chalk it up Le Lion... tell them give me a raise...I've been there over a year! lol!
But being the penny-pinchin' Diva I am( I was in that drive-thru ordering a $1 side salad and $1 Sweet Tea...) I thought I could re-create the line...Drugstore Style.
Check it out from the left:
Sinful Colors in Pink Forever( Is that sign, hehe!)
Cover Girl Boundless Color in Luxe Lilac
N.Y. C. Nail Polish in Taxi Cab Yellow
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Fashionista Orange
All from Walgreens except the Taxi Cab Yellow( Target)

So after couple of swatches on the jaw bone, I set mine at 4, as my customed color. The formulation is very sheer. It took me two full face applications for the coverage I like.
Without makeup.(cringe) and without a smile.:( I have alot of darkness around my mouth and acne scars

So when I went into the Westgate Mall Belk *gasp!*( I was looking for the boys some sandals...) I found myself buying FULL PRICE CK IN2U. I love it! It's so fresh and sweet and I felt clean in it. Check out the notes:
Defined by the spirit of today’s youthful generation, this bold, authentic fragrance opens surprisingly with redcurrant leaves, Sicilian bergamot and pink grapefruit fizz underscored by sugar orchid and white cactus. Red cedar, neon amber and vanilla soufflé complete this fresh, flori-oriental fragrance
Now I'm needing that lotion to match...:)

I know, I didn't look happy. I took these pics after Morning Service. After Grandma made me mad in church! Sad, I know. I just couldn't shake it. But here goes:
I can't wear earrings right now because my right lobe hurts. Probably because of all the cheap earrings I wear. So I settled for a vintage pin I found at the Hillcrest Goodwill.
