BK Girls Night Out and NY Vlog

Last Saturday, I had an amazing time in New York. I was initially going to the BK Girls Night Out event and saw that Alissa Ashley was having a meet and greet at the ELF store in Times Square. I had to go because she's one of my favorite YouTubers and I wanted to support her collab with Elf. We were able to purchase her lip gloss before it launched during the meet and greet. She is such a sweet person and really pretty in person. You'll see in the vlog what else I purchased at the Elf store. 

I had some time in between events so I stopped to get some coffee...and it wasn't Starbucks lol. I stopped by Pret and had a really good Pumpkin Spice Latte. I also had a breakfast sandwich and just enjoyed sitting and city watching lol.

I walked around the city for a little bit before it was time to head to Brooklyn. It was fun taking the subway and figuring out what train to take. Thank goodness for Google Maps lol. I didn't get too lost, I was just on the wrong side of the tra…

Shopping My Beauty Samples

It is really starting to feel like Fall now. I  need to take some of my coats to the cleaners soon lol. Today I am shopping in my beauty samples. Let's see what I'll be reviewing today!

Tokyo Milk Honey and the Moon No. 10 Parfum

Box It Came From: Onyx Box Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size Price Point: 30.00 Review: I was really surprised that I received a full size perfume in my box! I normally don't mind the small samples but it is a treat to get a full size item. This scent is something that I've never smelled before and I am loving it! It has notes of sandalwood, jasmine, honey and sugared violet. It is something that you can wear everyday and it is not strong or overpowering at all. I will definitely be repurchasing this. 

OGX Healing and Vitamin E Penetrating Oil
Box It Came From: Onyx Box Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size Price Point: 6.99 Review: I am always excited when I receive hair products in my boxes. I love trying out new products and seeing what else is out …

On A Personal Note.....

Sometimes it is hard to adapt when things change. You are just so used to how something is and then something new comes and it is going to change everything. I am willing to go with anything that changes in my life but I had a little difficult time with a change at work.
 My job title and work load has changed. Two jobs were basically rolled into one position and when I first heard about it, I freaked out a little and was scared. I am still new to the current position I am in and thought I was going to be totally overwhelmed. I still had like a million questions a day and things always came up that I did not know and now I have to learn something else on top of that. I was wondering if I was going to be able to handle this.
 I know that I asked for a challenge and worked really hard to get the job that I'm in now. So this seemed like another challenge to me. I know that I was doubting myself in the job I am in now but I wouldn't of gotten the job if they didn't believe I …

Ice Queen Halloween Tutorial

I have been wanting to do Halloween tutorials for a while but just was too scared to do them. I didn't have all the cool special effects or could use all the special makeup and stuff. I just thought if I didn't have all that, I couldn't do a tutorial. This year, I decided that I would stop being scared and just do one. I just thought of this idea and went with it. Hope you enjoy and grab a snack!

So that is it for my first Halloween tutorial. I will have another one next week! What are you doing for Halloween this year? Any parties? Comment below and let me know. See you guys Thursday!

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.
