Review on Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned

Hey guys! I've had a pretty busy day. I've been cleaning and organizing my room most of the day. I've been finding things that I've been looking for and found things I forgot about lol! Well this post is a review on the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil I purchased a while ago.

This is my first purchase by Nars!! I know, lol! I've been hearing so much about it but never really made a purchase. After seeing a few friends wearing the products and reading great reviews by my fellow bloggers, I decided to give something a try. I was so surprised I spent 25.00 on this lip pencil but it was so worth it!! There were so many colors to choose from and I decided to go with Damned, which is described as rich magenta on the Nars website. Here is a swatch of it.

This Nars lip pencil is one of the best ones I've ever tried!! I love how rich the color is and how moisturizing it is. Some matte lip products I've tried have made my lips feel dry but not this one. It felt so light on my lips, forgot I actually had it on. The best thing I loved about this Nars lip pencil is I did not have to reapply at all. It stayed on all night and the color didn't fade. The only con about it is that I have to sharpen it, I prefer the twist up pencils. Other than that small thing, I absolutely love it! I will be repurchasing another one soon, maybe in another finish. Here are a couple pictures of the look I created with the Nars lip pencil.

So that is it for my review on the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. Have you tried this product before? What are your favorite Nars products? Comment below and let me know!!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
