Cherry on!

Now that its winter (or whatever you want to call the weather here in Georgia) I’m so glad I can finally wear dark shades of lipstick and nail polish and not look out-of-place. Cherry colors are probably my favourite to wear this season as my skin is a bit on the dark side, so I usually go for more berry tones.

Lipstick from Maybelline in 420 Deepest Cherry (It’s not as dark as it looks)

Revlon nail polish in 730 Valentine

Absolutely in love with these deep colors.


Shopping at the PX!

I  recently went to the PX (Postal exchange. It’s a much smaller version of Wal-Mart) at Fort Gordon, Georgia, mainly to go have lunch with my hubby ❤ However, since he wanted to go look at video games after, I went to look at make-up 😀 I was actually surprised to see make-up counters for Estee Lauder, Clinique and Lancome. I was in heaven! The best part of it all? Cheaper and tax-free. I’m a bit weird when it comes to blush as I only wear pink. Different shades of pink, obviously! But no brown, red, peach, apricot etc for me. I feel like it does not give me the glow I want, and pink does it right for me.

I also picked up a neutral lipstick from Maybelline just for an everyday look. I love this lipstick because it adds a bit more definition to my lips and matches my brown skin tone pretty well.

My husband on the other hand decided to pick up the book “50 Shades of Grey” for me. I hadn’t heard what the book was about till I read the summary of it and saw in bold letters on the back of the book “Erotic Novel” haha shock of my life! Now I know what all the fuss is about 😛

Make up haul!

As I love all things girly, make up is something I am literally obsessed with. I can spend hours at a drug store just looking at all kinds of make up, especially lipsticks and lip glosses to see what colors there are and which ones would suit my skin tone. Well I went into the PX on post at Fort Gordon and bought some pretty colors for the summer.
