Master Bathroom update!

As many of you know my family moved to a new house late July.  Over the weekend we finally settled on a theme for the master bathroom (hello, only 6 months later!)  Here is the house tour I did before they finished our house:

This gives you an idea of how the bathroom looked before.  Pretty much it was empty.  We had a clear plastic shower curtain on the shower and that was the extent of our decor.  So here is the new updated bathroom.  Of course its not totally finished but this is a great start!

The shower curtain, I am totally in love with this!  There are crystals all over it!
 The for show towels as well as chest that holds my make up. 
If you are wondering about my makeup chest, here is the video I posted last year about it, the location has changed but the items inside are pretty much the same!.

 These are the awesome bath mats!  I love these!

These are the details that I fell in love with at the store.  I mean how cute are these?  The little round box holds cotton pads and the cup holds my qtips. The white dress is soap pump and the pink dress is a toothbrush holder.
 The hand towels, there are two of these, one on either side of the vanity.
 And lastly, the ridiculously adorable garbage can.  Really you cant get much more adorable then this!
There are still some more things that I would love to get, some pictures for the wall and some cute things for around my tub!  Thanks for reading!

Jan Ipsy bag!

January Ipsy bag came in today!  I have to say that I really love this one!  The bag is two toned, blue and white.

Inside the bag time! 

~First up was a sample of Eco-Beauty by La Fresh Group. good day day moisturizer.  I will try this one tomorrow morning.
~Pacifica eye shadow in ethereal. This is a beautiful champagne color.
~Hikari eye liner in storm, which is a charcoal color.  This is really creamy and goes really well with the eyeshadow!
~Velvet 59 by Paris Manning Lip gloss in Noisette.  This shows pretty dark in the tube and picture but its a great nude color, again it pairs well with they eyeshadow and liner.
~And lastly an eyeshadow brush by Elizabeth Mott.  I really like this brush.  It is very soft and applies shadow well.

This bag was such a hit that all of these products (minus the moisturizer sample) have made there way into my purse makeup bag to live!  I really do love them all!

Mortal Instruments Review!!!

I have just finished reading book three of six in the Mortal Instruments series! I am so in love with this series. So far, there are Shadow hunters, or Nephilim, they are the good guys who hunt down and kill the demons. The books also feature, warlocks, vampires, faeries, and werewolves. Clary Fray is the main character who grew up thinking she was normal, until one day she meets Jace. He is the shadowhunter boy who turns her life around. At one point they find out they are actually brother and sister, after developing a love interest in each other. By the end of book three however, we find that they are not brother and sister, but that Clary's father was experimenting with her Jace and another boy, her real brother, when they were all very little. This story has love, adventure, danger, and will keep you on the edge of your seat. I cannot wait to finish out the series. Oh and they have made book one, City of Bones into a movie as well. I highly recommend watching that after you read the series!

I Gave my Blog a Facelift

It was time to give this blog a face lift. I am so much more then just beauty. I want to incorporate book reviews, and talk about geeky things like Dr. Who or Star Trek, (yes I am a geek) I love coffee, there is just so much more to life! There will still be some beauty posts, but there will be so much more to come in terms of new content! I just finished book 3 in a 6 book series and I cant wait to do a review on that for you guys, although I am sure I am late to the party in reading it!.

I have a neat reading list for this year. I hope that I can get through it! Although I am certain that I can!

Anyways, new year, new me, new blog!

The Great Pixie Grow Out: 8 weeks

I have made it to 8 weeks! I have not cut my hair in 8 full weeks! This is the longest time since I got my pixie cut in February that I have gone without getting a trim! I would have to say that my hair has grown around 2 to 2.5 inches in 8 weeks! I am super excited for that growth! I am still taking the Hair skin nails vitamins by Itworks. I am washing my hair 2x a week with a natural shampoo and conditioner and once a week I do a coconut oil mask.
