I ♥ David & Goliath

Ever since I discovered David & Goliath I have been obsessed! Any time I see anything of them I automatically want & need in my life for some odd reason. I really cannot explain why, other than all their stuff is ridiculously cute. 

There is no store close to me which carries their hoodies, so I had to order them online off of chicksrule.co.uk. Here is where I ordered my all time favorite hoodie the I ♥ nerds and also my I ♥ cupcakes. They are a little on the pricey side but I think the cuteness of these sweaters make up for it.

Recently I found a store in the mall which started carrying all their t-shirts and yes I have gone mad I want them all ;)

February Favorites

1) Favorite Snack of the Month: Is Pirate's Booty, I absolutely love these chips! (or whatever they are ). If popcorn and cheese-puffs had a baby I feel it would be Pirate's Booty, they are just sooo crunchy,puffy and yummy! (it's a must try)!

2) Favorite Top of the Month: Forever 21 heart shaped sweater

3) Favorite Mascara of the Month:This next favorite I discovered it at the very beginning of the month, and since I applied that first coat of mascara I was in LOVE! It is the Loreal voluminous false lashes mascara, this mascara is amazing for lengthening and adding volume. I like to use it as my second layer mascara, since I do have quite thin and straight lashes and this mascara just adds that extra fattening my lashes are missing.

4) Favorite Lip Product of the Month: I do not know why in the world it took me so long to try the Covergirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Glosses before OMG! They are amazing! Love them! This is the perfect lip for everyday, especially if you are one (like myself) to feel your look is not complete without lipstick but, feel lipstick is too much for everyday life. They come in a bunch of amazing colors. Mine is in the color Ruby Twist 245 

5) Favorite song of the month: Bruno Mars: When I was your man

6) Favorite Show of the Month: Carrie Diaries OMG! this show is ridiculously good, if you are a fan of Sex and the City then this show is a must in your DVR. Its about young Carries life before the whole Mr.Big drama and before she meet her amazing best friends Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha. I just love everything about this show the cast, the wardrobe, the 80's ughh its just,y'all 
just need to watch it trust me ;)

Love Bug

 It is officially February and I absolutely adore this month! I just love the colors, the whole celebrating that you are loved thing and pretty much everything that has to do with this month.

 I am obsessing over anything red at the moment ( I think it might be a tiny withdrawal from not having red hair anymore:) 

 I have been keeping my eyes on all of these things and do believe I absolutely need them in my life right now (especially this month)

 I am absolutely obsessed with patterned anything right now! Especially anything with hearts just like the Long Sleeve Heart Flippy Dress from Topshop.

 I have been a four eyes ever since I was 4 and I remember being grumpy and annoying about not wanting to use my glasses. However, now all that has changed and I love to wear my glasses and I have developed quite an obsession over them if I must admit.I buy so many glasses each year it is purely ridiculous I think I might be turning into a glasses hoarder but, I just can not help it. This month I have my eyes on a particular frame and those are the Ray-Ban red glasses which look like your typical wayfarer model, I currently have similar glasses to these but in the color black. I have been wanting a red pair of glasses for ages.

 I am not a fan of comic books however, I adore the Archie comics especially the Betty and Veronica series. So it was no surprise I would be excited for the new MAC collection revolving around this series, after taking a glimpse at the collection there is only one thing I want and that is the Veronica Lipstick in Ronnie Red.( I would buy other products from the collection but that would be simply for the packaging because it is absolutely gorgeous) 

 Last but not least I have been really loving the whole fringe phenomena it seems like everybody is getting them chopped off including the first lady of the US. Now myself I have been wanting to get my fringe cut as well however, I am going through the dilemma I always do before a hair change should I cut it? or no? I just don't know if I am 100% sure of wanting them and I know from experience growing them out is no fun.

Foundation Routine

I tend to have a difficult time finding the perfect foundation that will match my skin tone. I usually go for the lightest in every brand of foundation however, 9 out of 10 times I find they are either to yellow or pink. I have tried pretty much every foundation out there from drug store to higher brand, and the foundation I have found that does the job for me so far is the Make Up Forever HD foundation in 110.( still don't feel like it is the perfect foundation for me however like I said it gets the job done for me)

Here is what I do for my foundation routine.

1 I prep my face I put on my SPF and primer.
2 After that I cover my terrible raccoon eyes and any blemishes I might have with my absolute favorite concealer Kat Von D in the color porcelain with my sephora air brush concealer brush.
3Then I add my Make Up Forever HD Foundation in #110 with my sephora airbrush foundation brush.
4 To prevent my face from sliding off :) I use my absolute super duper favorite of all time I seriously lve this product, I cannot live without it I will probably buy this for the rest of my life. It is the MAC skin finish natural in light, I just use my big sigma kabuki brush and apply it to all over my face, after that I go in with a sponge and take a little of the skin finish and set my make up in areas of my face that I cannot get to with my brush like under my eyes and the creases on the side of the nose.

And voila! Perfect skin!

Sunday Summary

1  The red hair is history I dyed my hair back to dark, I intended the color to be more of a brown but it turned out black. I have had this color for about a month and as the usual I have grown bored of it and really want to ombre it , I know this trend is so over used and what not but I really want to try it.

2   I am so sad Christmas is over, it is my favorite holiday ( we just got done with putting all the Christmasy stuff away in my house)

3 I thought I would share with you all what I got for Christmas while we are on the subject, I only received one gift and it was a Taylor guitar! Meet Drew Taylor :)

4  I start uni tomorrow :( 

5  I just hope 2013 is better than 2012
