PhotoBlog: New Year's Eve 2010

Hey everyone! I've been having a ton of fun playing around with my new camera. I asked my fellow Tweeters if they were interested in seeing a photo blog, and I got a lot of positive responses, so here's just some photos I've taken during the last few days!

MAC Dangerous Cuvee Paint Pot: Mini Review & Swatch

MAC has released four new limited edition paint pots in its Cham-Pale collection (out December 26th, 2010), and my favorite of the four is Dangerous Cuvee, a cool grey sparkle-shimmer color. This product retails for $16.50 and can be purchased for a limited time wherever MAC cosmetics are sold.

Monday Questionnaire: December 27th, 2010

Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone had a great Christmas (for those who celebrate). This is the last Monday Questionnaire of the year... let's make it count! :)

On a side note, can anyone guess which toy Santa brought this year? I can't wait to take some photos for this blog!

Project 20 Pan is over! Holla!

Yes, Project 20 Pan has been completed. FINALLY. I started it on August 13th of this year, so it has been roughly 4.5 months since I have had the freedom to purchase makeup (with the exception of a few things, like mascara, etc.). This really is perfect timing, because I was pretty much planning to break my Project 20 Pan anyway so I could get one of the new paint pots MAC is releasing in the Cham Pale collection on December 26th. Now I can just feel honest about it!

I've done a few previous posts updating on products I've used up throughout this project, which can be found via these links:

Post 1: Products 1-9

Post 2: Products 10-14

So what were the last 6 products I used up to complete this project?

15.) MAC Volcanic Thermal Ash Exfoliator
: I purchased this when it was released with the Style Black collection in October of 2009, and truly loved this product. It is a black face/body scrub, and the best part about it is when I would use it, my body would look like it was covered in dirt. It's was kind of fun to feel like I was getting dirty when I was actually getting clean!

Monday Questionnaire: December 20th, 2010

Hey everyone! Sorry this is going up so late today... I've spent the day traveling back home from my ski trip and haven't had a lot of spare time until now. I hope everyone had a good weekend!

The Christmas Tree in Times Square, NY. Someday I will see this tree in person! It is one of my dreams to spend Christmas in New York one year.

Nail of the Day: OPI Fiji Weejee Fawn

Today's NOTD is one of my all time favorites: OPI Fiji Weejee Fawn. I love this color because as far as its shade goes, it matches my skin tone perfectly, but it has a pearlescent frosty finish that gives my fingertips a pretty sheen. It is the perfect polish to add a nice touch to any look!

Nail of the Day: Essie Flawless

Today's Nail of the Day is a cool-toned light pink cream from Essie, named Flawless. I find that this is a really nice classic light pink shade. It is definitely on the sheer side though, the polish is a little watery upon application. If you are someone who likes a full opaque finish, expect to do 2-3 coats of this.

Monday Questionnaire: December 13th, 2010

I cannot wait for this week to be over (finals week), so I will finally have time to start updating this blog more often. I feel bad about how much I've neglected it! I hope you are all having a great month so far!

Monday Questionnaire: December 6th, 2010

Hey everyone! Sorry I've been neglecting my blog so much lately. I've been really swamped with classes wrapping up for the semester. I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things in a week or two! It's Monday Questionnaire time again, which is one of my favorite times of the week because I love hearing all of your answers. Feel free to answer these questions yourself in a comment below!

Found this gem in a family photo album over break:

Me and my older brother dressed as Ninja Turtles when I was little. You can see my natural blonde hair here! I think my mom dated this photo wrong, because in January 1990 I was 6 months old... she probably meant 1991.
