Where There's Smoke There's Fire

Hello guys and dolls!

I've been so overwhelmed with catching up with school work and really just trying to make it through the week. was it just me or was last week the longest.week.ever?

This weekend I tried to stay as mellow as possible since next week/weekend will be a cluster of visiting, eating, drinking, and other craziness.

Friday night I finally put all the goodies of my November Glam Bag to use. Here's what I received this month:

  • Nailtini nail polish in Millionaire
  • Benefit They're Real black mascara
  • Balm Meet Matt(e) eye shadow in "Matt Batali"
  • Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie lip gloss in Dare Devil
  • Starlet Intense Eyeliner in black

And here's the look I created with it. 

Whatcha think?

I have to say I really like the Bare Minerals lip gloss. It's not tacky which is a huge plus for this Chapstick/Blistex only girl. I ended up blotting it off and using my go to tinted lip gloss from B&BW. And the mascara? Loved it! 

As for the Nailtini polish, I'm saving that for New Years. I'm sooo not into glitter so this will practically never get used unless I need to get my jazz hands on.
Overall I was pleased with my first Glam Bag. I'm already excited over what's in store for December!

I took my smoky eyes and headed to the bar. I must have done good because I spent the entire evening talking and laughing with old friends and making new ones. That's what I call a successful night. 

Saturday I devoted to catching up with Max, my DVR. Yeah, I named it. What of it? I like to think of it as my personal assistant... Dexter was the main show I had to catch up on. As well as New Girl. Seriously, DVR is the best invention ever. 

It was Big Blue's bye week so I took a break from screaming at my TV and crying into my jersey. Next week...

Boyfriend and I had a date night.We went to Outback for drinks and appetizers and then he took me to see Breaking Dawn. What a guy!


So, how was your weekend?


  1. I got my first Glam Bag last week. I'm sad that I didn't get the mascara. I also subscribe to Birchbox so I'm going to give it some time to see which one I prefer. :)

  2. He took you to see Twilight? I'd see that as a reason to dump him. Then again the only reason to actually go see that movie is because your girlfriend wants to. So I will also say "what a guy". You have a lot of fancy stuff there, and you look good in it, which is what makes it better. 

  3. As a typical guy, let me just say that I can't tell all of what you did in the picture (Hey, at least I'm being honest). BUT... you look great as always, so think of it as a compliment.

  4. Actually, I told him I'd rather  see Twilight alone and we could see something else but he said it was fine.

    The glam bag looks awesome - I stopped my Birchbox but I'd love to jump on this bandwagon! Will you send me the link?! 

  6. oooh my FAVE mascara!! :)
    p.s. check out my latest giveaway - last day to enter!

  7. OMG you name your DVR? THAT IS THE BEST IDEA EVER. I'm going to have to start brainstorming, because seriously, my DVR is one of my bestest, most-used friends. New Girl is one of my favorites—"are you trying to White Fang me?" and "WE BUILT THIS SCHMIDTY ON TOOOOOTSIE ROLLS"....even though those both look like Schmidt is my favorite, my favorite is totally Winston. The show didn't know what to do with him for like, the first 6 months, and then all of a sudden he hit his stride.

    I hate tacky lip gloss. My lips stick together and then my hair gets caught like a fly in a venus fly trap. I didn't even know they MADE non-tacky lip gloss!

  8. The new makeup looks fierce! I want my nose cute.
