Makeup Alley Swap!!

Have you ever bought a beauty item that turned out to be something completely different then what you had excepted? You try to return it and find out it can't be returned. Or even better you receive a neon pink lipstick that you would never wear as a birthday gift. If you're like me you hate to just throw this stuff away, come on, it's brand new! Well I've got the solution for you

Makeup Alley has a feature on their website that allows you to swap these items with other
 beauties that are in the same situation as you!
 This is how it works: 
-Sign up at
-Read all Disclaimer info carefully
-Browse swap sections
-Ask questions if you're unsure about a product & check references
-Reach an agreement, you must swap items it is an even-exchange program
-Send off your swapped items
It's that simple!!

This site is similar to ebay being that you are on a honor system. You should treat people the way 
you would want to be treated. Don't swap old, expired and dirty items with people.
I always check feedback and references before swapping with someone.
I only swap items that are in original packaging and sealed.

PS: It's a great place to find stuff that you love that is discontinued.
I'm not saying you are going to find Urban Decay's naked palette,
but you may find a limited edition MAC eye shadow you love!

Do you plan on swapping anything on makeup alley?

Battle Of The Bows!

For all of you out there that know me, you know I have been obsessed with bow rings lately.
I have three that are my favorite at the moment.

First up we have my little petite, tiny bow that I like
to wear on my middle finger.

Secondly, we have the one that I wear every
time I wear pink. I can't help it, it is just so girly and sparkly!

And Lastly, We have the big make a statement 
cocktail bow ring! Fabulous Right?! 

And now for a bonus bow:

Which bow ring do you like the best?

Eco Emi ♥ : August Box

Today when I got home I had something waiting for me my August Eco Emi box!! Yay!!
For those of you who do not know what Eco Emi is it is a monthly subscription of five to ten
 Eco friendly products delivered to your door once a month for $15.00. The best
part is everything comes wrapped in cute reusable materials/satchels. 

Now lets take a look at my current August box.

First up the pretty blue package.

Radiant You by. Dr. Hauschka

Inside the box is a lavender bath, cleansing cream, facial toner and mask.

Next up the reusable satchel.

Acai Vitamin Super Chews by Genesis
Organic Ranch Dip by Simple Organic
Organic Chai and Chamomile Teas by Eden Organics
Rejuvenating Hand and Body Lotion by Auromere
Organic Seaweed Revitalizing Shower Gel by Gabriel Cosmetics
And My Favorite Thing This Month:
Lip Balm by Pangea Organics
I opened the Lip Balm immediately and I must say it is 

The rolled light blue tissue paper was
Vanilla Vegan Raw Protein Powder by Health Force Nutritionals

Overall everything I received was a good value especially since the 
lip balm was full sized and retails for $12.00.
(lip balm is Egyptian fennel with grapefruit & sweet orange)

Each box also comes with numerous coupon codes off of 
the featured items in the box. 
If you have yet to check them out I suggest you do.

Wedding Wednesday!!

Now that the wedding countdown has really began I have stumbled upon the great art of do it yourself wedding vows. My fiance would rather play Madden then write his own vows. I on the other hand have considered writing my own wedding vows I feel they are more personal and original. I can make my vows romantic or funny. And really add my own personal touch and feelings.

Then on the other hand going the traditional route is traditional which is always nice. Less stressful which trust me our stress levels are peaking. My fiance doesn't really like to do public speaking, and neither one of us is consider a great writer.Which leaves me not knowing what to really do in this situation.

Which means it's now time for the question.Where do you stand on writing your own wedding vows? Did you write your own? Or will you write your own vows when you do get married?

Some of my favorite things are music, the color pink, big sunglasses, lip gloss, nail polish and 
basically everything pretty and girlie.
