I'm a Winner...Again!!! (Makeup Haul)

Wow, this is the second big giveaway that I've won in the last month!!! I won the products from my girl Tisha at Gettin Cocoa.

Tisha is an awesome supporter and blogger friend to me. I feel like I know her so well, even though we haven't met personally. She is a lover off all things makeup and beauty like me... her blog is featured in my blog roll on the right, so; please check out the link and follow.

Believe it or not, a lot of the products that I've won are by brands that I've never tried before, so; it was a real treat to win this giveaway. Below is what I won: 


As much as I've heard so many great things about Sonia Kashuk, I've never bought any of her brushes for my personal use. I was so excited when I won this travel brush set. I've been needing some smaller brushes to go in my cosmetic bag to use every day and now, thanks to this set, I have brushes that can fit in my cosmetic bag.


LOT #1

I got a sample of 6 pigments some are from Mac, cream shadows by Max Factor (very hard to find), a mini brush set, Maybelline Define A line gift set, earrings, Revlon cherry nail polish and Twilight Woods hand sanitizer.

LOT # 2

I received a cute journal (something I always carry in my purse), a beautiful shimmer eyeshadow palette that includes greens, blues and golden shadows, Almay lip gloss and eye palette (highly pigmented), Nyc blush, Wet n Wild lipstick, Jordanna lip liner, Wet n Wild brow set, nail clippers and Kiss lashes. I also received a cosmetic bag and brow kit which is not pictured.


I'm set with enough makeup and goodies to last me through the winter of next year, since a lot of the brands are new to me- I will be sure to make good use of everything. Thanks again, Tisha for my prizes girl!!! I'm really pleased with everything :-)

Have you tried any of these items? What are your thoughts?

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face 101 :DC Makeup Class (Recap)!

This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face makeup class. I met Alexandra the first time at The NYC Makeup show last May; before then I had been following her work since an interview she did on Erin Bailey's (Scandalous Beauty) beauty blog.

Alex is a beautiful and amazingly talented freelance makeup artist who currently lives in Atlanta. She worked for Mac for a while and now she's professionally freelancing on her own. She has all kinds of clients from your every day women to celebrity clients. She has done makeup for cast members from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and also Real Housewives of Atlanta TV shows. I've always admired her flawless face makeup, especially the way she sculpts and contours or as she would say "snatched up your face."

Alex has been hosting makeup shows in several states and she made her way to DC this past Sunday, I couldn't wait (I registered back in February)! I loved the class so much, I r…
