BUXOM FULL-ON – LIP CREAM

Hello and welcome back,

Today’s review will be about Buxom’s lip cream/gloss. This review will be short today, because I’ve had a really busy week and I didn’t really prep for this review. Sorry ❤

What it is:
A creamy, no-shimmer lip gloss with a tingling, plumping effect.

What it does:
No shimmer or glimmer—just creamy, glass-smooth gloss, decadent color, intoxicating shine, and famous tingle for a gentle plumping effect. Encapsulated hyaluronic spheres infuse lips with moisture while vitamins A and E help keep them supple, protected, and extra kissable.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Phthalates

This gloss is all I use, I threw all my other glosses out, I don’t think I can ever find a better one. The texture of the formula is a light-medium in thickness, creamy, and reasonably tacky. The Lip Cream settles into lip lines, whenever I have a bad lip day, either they are dry or just not plumpy I usually apply my chapstick and then the lip cream/ gloss and honestly it fades away any dry texture on my lips.  They’re true to the “no-shimmer” part of the description. I use this product almost every day. It does have a slight Plumping effect but it is not overwhelming like others can be (there isn’t much of a sensation). The colors are beautiful, but my favorite in the one I took a picture of and it is the Dolly. This leaves my lips feeling soft and moisturized. My more detailed review video is below.

Hello and welcome back,

Today I will be reviewing the Juviasplace Nubian 2 Eye shadow Palette. This palette as you can see is filled with amazing colors. I first saw it on Nikkie Tutorials and I thought wow I love how colorful it this palette is, so it has been on my mind for quite some time now. My sister actually bought this and the other 2 palettes from their website and was nice enough to let me swatch hers and immediately, I was IN LOVE! Juvia’s Place the Nubian 2 is super pigmented neutral eyeshadow palette with colors that speak out loud and pop beautifully on the skin! Let’s get to the review;

My Thoughts;

I used it more than few times, I used it only once with a primer, I wore it to work for 12 hours without a primer and it did not move. The primer made the colors pop more, but honestly speaking I will only use primer if I have the time. The pigmentation is so amazing, and it’s creamy and easily slides on the eyelid. The colors are all wearable, and most importantly the color Zuri, can be used as a highlighter, been doing it for 2 weeks now.

BRIDESMAIDS

7010

Hello, and welcome back,

This topic makes me very happy, emotional, and glad for all my bridesmaids. It always brings me to tears when I think about what my Bridesmaids have done for me the last month before the wedding, never imagined it and never felt so loved by my friends and family like this. I have many tips for this topic but every girl is different when it comes to choosing her party, I want to tell all the Brides that to choose someone who you know will be there for every step of the way, who you trust, who has been there through bad and good times, and mostly someone who will take a lot of stress that is on you.

GOING DRESS SHOPPING (WEDDING)

2823

Every Brides favorite subject, I couldn’t wait to go dress shopping until it stressed me out and had a meltdown. Believe me when I say dress shopping is soo stressful, especially when you have a budget and an idea of how you want your dress to look like ever since you were a little girl. Basically, I did my homework and looked online at soo many types of dresses by different designers and workout my budget towards it. I’m going to write down what’s important when picking your dress so you don’t have to go through the stress I went through.

After Booking a Venue

Hello,

I’m back with another topic, lets get into it. If you are planning your own wedding, and your confused on what to do after booking your venue, and question when is it too early or too late to book things, then you came to the right place. Let me start by saying, after booking your venue you kinda forget about booking the other stuff because your wedding is a year from the booking, some people don’t have a year to plan out their wedding and they get into it and they don’t care about the order it goes. Anyways, I’m going to do a list of the things you should do after booking a venue and explain why, again this is all based on my own experience.

If your wedding is a year from the booking then you need to do the following:

  1. Theme: Again I said hem because it is the most important part of the wedding, everything will fall nicely together if it all matches, for example I had a lilac theme to my wedding from the time of booking the venue, I was set on it but then after finding out that lilac is very hard to find for bridesmaids dress I decided to change it to pink. As long as you have an idea you can play around with it, so if you ever change your mind you can change it something similar so your work doesn’t go to waste.
  2. Book your Singer/band/DJ: They book fast, so you need to get them as soon as you can if you have any in mind.
  3. Photographers & Videographers: You need to book the photographer as early as you can because you want to have the time to think of the weather, the place where you ant to take your engagement photos, love story video (if you want), and other things that you have in mind.
  4. Church/Ceremony place: these places book fast as well, now I had 3 churches in mind but I chose one of them and talked to the priest and everything was booked and was done and over with.

These 4 points are seriously the most important things in the wedding, they are like your foundation to the wedding, you cant have one and not have the other. So Book them as soon as you can so you don’t have to worry about them. I posted some photos from our photographer, that captured the pre-wedding photos, singer and band.

PLANNING A BIG WEDDING (Part 1)

I am going to make several topics on Wedding Planning. As you know I got married to my Prince on May 22, 2016, and this planning was a roller coaster ride, I learned a lot, and stressed a lot. Being a Bride is hard, I used to find it weird when Brides are crampy, or emotional, or even mean. Listen, to the Brides to be out there that are reading this, everything at the end will work out, don’t stress the small things or the big things, you will be fine and you will be the most beautiful bride on your day. So, now let me go through what I will discuss in today’s topic, which is How Do I Start?

How do I Start planning the most amazing day of my life?

WHAT YOU NEED?

o Wedding Planner/ Binder
o Wedding Magazines
o Pinterest Account

THE 3 MOST IMPORTANT STEPS

1. Pick a Venue – Picking a Venue, can basically round up your budget, because it will be the most expensive thing that you MOST HAVE.
2. Figure out your budget – From the previous point above, you can now estimate what your budget will be, also the amount of guest you will be inviting.
3. Pick the date picking the wedding date is hard, because you need to know when you should have your wedding, and if you are thinking of spending less you can chose between Fridays and Sundays. If you don’t care, then you can go with Saturday, also keep in mind the weather. For me, I want it to be a nice weather not too hot and not too cold and thought May is the prettiest months here in Canada. Also, Photography depends on a nice day, someone told me before that when it’s too sunny out the photos don’t come out as nice, also all the brides imperfections come out (Aka concealed acne). Don’t pick a date that’s closer than 6 – 8 months, give yourself time to plan it, because trust me when you rush plan anything it will show.

So now that you know what you need to keep in mind, you can start planning everything based on these 3 things, because, these won’t change, or hopefully won’t change.
