Beauty Crown Awards- Week 3

The Beauty Crown Awards are a yearly favorites collaborative effort including beauty bloggers around the globe. The Beauty Crown Awards were created by Lily from Beauty with Lily Liz from My Pretty Obsessions, Jackie from Five Two Certified, and Shalunya from Shalunya & Boyet. We felt that a collaborative effort from a large number of beauty bloggers would be much more interesting to our readers and would garner more attention. The Beauty Crown Awards are a 5 week event with each week covering types of products.

Week 1 - Personal Care Products - Dec 2 - Dec 8, 2013
Week 2 - Facial Products - Dec 9 - Dec 15, 2013
Week 3 - Lip & Nail Products - Dec 16 - Dec 22, 2013
Week 4 - Eye & Misc Products - Dec 23 - Dec 29, 2013
Week 5 - Facial Care Products & Tools - Dec 30 - Jan 4, 2014

Week 3 of the Beauty Crown Awards covers Lip & Nail Products. Below are my Week 3 selections:

Lipliner- Nyx and MAC
Now this week was very hard to choose but I love both of these lipliners. They are pretty similar to me besides the huge price difference. They are both really great lipliners to own.

Lipstick- NYX Matte and MAC
The only lipsticks I have owned for a while are MAC. I just love the colors and how they don't dry out your lips and stay on for a good portion of the day. Then I started to discover other lipsticks and fell in love with NYX Matte Lipsticks. I just love the way they look and how they basically stay on your lips for a while and also doesn't dry your lips out. I had way too many favorites but when with my top two!

Gloss- Benefit Cosmetics SugarBomb Ultra Plush Lip Gloss
I received this in my Birchbox a few months ago and just fell in love with this. I have never felt a lipgloss so plush and soft before. I love the neutral pink tone and how it just feels on my lips, lol!

Tinted Lip Balm- Cover Girl Smoochies Lip Balm
This is my go to lip balm when I don't feel like wearing lipstick or gloss. It so moisturizing and I love the hint of color. The smell reminds of the Lip Smackers Lip Balm that I used to wear when I was younger. This is a really great product to own!

Lip Treatment- DIY Lip Scrub and Toothbrush
I basically use a DIY Lip Scrub to exfoliate my lips and keep them nice and soft or I will use a toothbrush to exfoliate. I have tried so many DIY Lip Scrubs, I haven't found a favorite yet but will let you guys know when I do.

Polish- OPI
This is hands down my favorite nail polish!! I just love this polish so much. The formula is great and the polish stays last on your nails for a while.

Basecoat- OPI Nail Envy
I love this as a basecoat. My nails don't stain from the polish and it also helps with nail growth. I also wear this alone when I'm not wearing any polish.

Topcoat- Out The Door
I have searched high and low for a top coat that helps polish stay on my natural nails for more than a day. I know it can be hard but so far, I really like this top coat. It gives a nails a great shine and my polish stays on for more than a day which I'm happy with.

Treatment- Sally Hansen Cuticle Massage Cream
I'll admit I've been pretty bad with taking care of my cuticles. I haven't really used anything in a while but with Winter here I needed to find something. I picked this up at Target and so far I like it. It smells so good and does the job. My cuticles look good and don't feel rough at all.


  1. Like the glass marble element you used for the pictures. I too like the NYX matte lipsticks, some really great colours they offer. I like the colour of that Opi polish. I still have yet to try the CG smoothies. Thanks for sharing:)

    1. Thanks Betti, I wanted to do something different with my pictures this time. There are too many shades to choose from with NYX,lol. That OPI color is Coney Island Cotton Candy, one of my favorite colors by them. You should try the Cover Girl Smoochies, it's great.

  2. Oooh, great picks!! Definitely share a lip scrub with us when you find one! Thanks for sharing! <3

    1. Thanks Lilly, I sure will when I find one!

  3. Hi Andrea! These are all great picks! I totally agree with you on the MAC and NYX picks! MAC lipsticks are awesome! I have one NYX lippie which is a matte cream. Benefit's Sugarbomb really is the bomb! I enjoyed reading your post! Thank you so much for sharing this with us! xx

    1. Hi Liz, thank you!! I definately agree, Mac has some great lipsticks and so does NYX! I have one of those Matte lippies by NYX, I think they are going to launch more colors next year! Thank you for stopping by!

  4. I need to try those NYX Matte lipsticks, I always get so overwhelmed when I get to the NYX shelf and want to buy them all! I agree with that Sugarbomb. Great winners this week Andrea, thanks for sharing it with us!

    1. You really should Jackie, they are so great! I get overwhelmed too trying to decide what to get. Thanks for stopping by!

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…
