  • Nintendo DSi XL Character Folio - May 18th, 2011
  • Ever since I wrote about getting a Nintendo DSi XL last November, I’ve been looking for a cute case for it. There are a lot of cases I liked for the smaller Nintendo DS Lite/DSi systems (mainly Hello Kitty ones), but I didn’t see any cases big enough to fit the DSi XL that caught my eye. I finally found the perfect cute case — this Nintendo DSi XL Character Folio in “Star”! This folio keeps my system nice and protected as well as holds 6 game cards. It even folds into a stand!


  • Green Smokey Eye Look - May 16th, 2011
  • If you love green eye shadow, try this green smokey eye! Apply the darkest green color from your upper lash line up to just past your crease. I like to blend a lighter green color along the entire crease to create a smooth transition between the highlight color and the darkest green. Check out my Purple and Black Smokey Eye and Classic Black Smokey Eye looks too! :)


  • Fashion Friday: Episode 64 - May 13th, 2011
  • I was drawn to this cute scoop-back dress when I was shopping at my favorite Therapy boutique. There’s a strip of the same floral fabric on the bottom of the dress that helps the scoop-back top stay nicely in place on my shoulders. This dress is one of those things that I can turn to on a whim, especially on days when I don’t have much time to come up with an outfit. It also works well as a swimsuit cover up!


  • Gray, Brown, and White Look - May 11th, 2011
  • For this look, I applied a shimmery white eye shadow on my lid just below my crease and surrounded it with dark brown and gray colors. The contrast created by using light and dark colors makes this a dramatic nighttime look. I applied a bright pop of color on my lips to make them stand out. I used Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics OCC Lip Tar in “Harlot” — it’s a gorgeous vibrant cherry red with a coral undertone.


  • MAC “Quite Cute” Lipstick + Look - May 9th, 2011
  • I’m always drawn to purple lipsticks, so I ended up getting MAC’s “Quite Cute” lipstick from their newest collection of the same name. This limited edition lipstick has a semi-opaque pale lavender color and has a cremesheen finish. Here are my thoughts on this lipstick and a purple makeup look to go along with it!
