First YouTube Video EVER!!!! LIVE!!!!

Just a quick post to let you guys know my first ever You Tube video . I have been wanting to make videos for a long time now and just never could get the courage to do it . I cant tell you how many times i have filmed and just nit picked it till there was nothing left . So to prevent me from doing that I filmed a gorilla style short 2 min. vid on "Whats in my makeup bag" on my Iphone and posted it .

Please know i am very much aware it is low quality , i tried to upload it in HD and it wouldn't post so needless to say i was determined to get it up and standard was all i could do . This in all honesty was more for me then anything else , to rip the band aid off in a way and just jump in head first . I hope you like it and please bare with me and PLEASE be sure to subscribe and let me know what you would like to see got up next .

Thank you and have a great weekend :)

Etsy Haul : Hand Made Soaps from False Nostalgia

I am a sucker for anything hand made , colorful and smells of what i think heaven smells like . So its safe to say Etsy is like crack to me . I can spend hours looking at all the cool things unbelievable creative people come up with . I came across False Nostalgia and immediately fell in love with her soaps . They are tailored to the geek in me . Shannon creates and names her soaps after some of my all time favorite T.V shows and movie franchises . These are the ones i picked up and best believe I will be ordering more . :)

If you get a chance stop by her store and check it out . All the soaps are a cold process and made from scratch . If you end up ordering be sure to post a pic and let me know your thoughts . Would love to see what you get .

Hope everyone is having a great week.

Review : Mac Pro Palette Large/Duo Sided


I have been holding out on writing this because i didn't want to make any rush decisions on it . I have been working with it for about a month now . When i first heard of this palette (what felt like century's ago) I couldn't wait to get my hands on them . When the day finally came i ordered two right off the bat . I wanted to love them so much but unfortunately that's not the case . 

I'm going to start with the negative only because i feel like non of the reviews i have read and seen seem to have the problems I have encountered with this . The magnetic bottom/lids , Knowing this a duel sided palette i would think they would be a bit stronger then its predecessor especially when the you can opt for not inserts . That's not the case , my pro pans are sliding around and end up flipping on to the clear lid and breaking . Makes it near impossible to travel with them . The same thing with the blush pro pan , though i have noticed they have used different magnets on the bottom of the blushes recently there larger and a bit thicker . 

My second issue with this palette is the clear lid itself . If you don't have nails or just maintain your nails short it's unbelievable difficult to open/flip to the other side . When your working the last thing you want is to be slowed down ever time you need to accesses the other side of your palette . It gets very annoying . 

The palette itself is made very well , super sturdy and the storage space is wonderful . I love having that many shadows in one spot and clearly visible at all times . The hinges are just as well made opening and closing very smoothly . I feel that this could have been the holy grail of palettes for me and i wanted to fall in love with it but i am sorry to say its a miss of me especially when i am having to dish out more money to fix the poor magnet problem . I hope you find this helpful and i would love to know your experience with this and what your thoughts are . Hope everyone is having a great week .
