Hair Evolution

Hey Guys!,

To make up for my lack of posts lately I thought I would share my hair evolution. Since its almost the new year I thought it would be fitting to share all of my hair color changes and there are a lot lol.Let's start out with a fun one from when I was kid! Thats me on the left, nice hair right!! haha

Let's start out with the bob I had a few years back. I had it cut when Victoria Beckham's hair was all the rage. I loved it so much! Although it is definitely annoying trying to grow it out.
Later on I made my hair super blonde and used to put brown extensions in lol.
Flash forward a couple of years I made my hair an auburn red color  during  2011. 
Here I am again with my red hair. It was fun while it lasted but I don't think I'll be a redhead again.
I let the red fade and made it brown.
In the beginning of 2012 I added some honey blonde highlights to my hair .
Here I am again with highlights.
In the spring I added a ton more highlights.
Eventually in the summer I made my whole head super blonde. 
For the fall I added some dark brown to my hair and kept some blonde highlights.
I later added a little more brown to create the ombre effect.
Last week I made my hair blonde again. I just can't stay away lol.

I am so indecisive when it comes to my hair I go back and forth between blonde and brown and everything in between. I am going to leave my hair alone for a while because I don't want to do anymore damage. I use a lot of hair treatments and deep conditioners to keep it somewhat healthy. My boyfriend jokes that I change my hair color with the seasons lol.

Do any of you change your hair a lot?? What are your favorite colors to try??

Love, K xx

Current Favorites

Hey guys!!,

I can't believe its been almost a month since I have blogged. I don't know where the time has gone, but I promise to get back on track. I figured it was too late to do a November Favorites so I decided I would share with you some of my current favorites!

First up I want to talk about a couple of hair products I've been using a lot lately. I've been really loving the Suave dry shampoo. It really helps with second day hair and also helps to create great volume

Next up is the Bumble and Bumble styling lotion. I spray this in my hair before I use any heat on my hair and it creates noticeable shine.

Since it is winter and I'm super pale I like to use a little self tanner to maintain a healthy glow. Lately I've been using the Victoria Secret Beach Sexy tinted self-tan body spray. It gives a great color without being super dark but is easily buildable. I am always looking for the best self tanners so if you have a favorite please comment and let me know :)

Next up are a couple of brushes I have been absolutely in love with. Real techniques brushes by Samantha Chapman are so amazing!! The two I have been in love with are the expert face brush which makes applying foundation seamless and the blush brush which creates a perfect glow on your cheeks.

For face products I have three favorites. First up is mac mineralized skinfinish. My color is light plus. I love applying this to my face especially the t zone after my foundation. It really helps pro long my makeup all day.

For blush I have been wearing Wet n' Wild's Pearlescent pink a beautiful pink shade with gold shimmer.

For highlight I have been using and Elf eyeshadow brightening eye pot. It came in one of the get the look sets it doesn't have a specific name just #00301. But its a beautiful shimmery shade.

For mascara I have gone back to an old favorite. Covergirl Lash Blast. This will probably always be a favorite. Its great for lengthening and separating lashes.

I have two current favorite lipsticks. The first one is Revlon's super lustrous 477 Black cherry. This dep berry red is perfect for winter. Its such a beautiful color.

My other favorite lipstick is Mac's amplified saint germain. A gorgeous hot pink color. It's pretty bright for winter but I love it so much.

My last favorite is a nail polish. CVS is having there annual beauty discounts. Select makeup and nail polish has been marked down to 50% or 75%. So I grabbed a couple of things one of them being the Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kollection glitter polish in Rainbow in the S-Kylie. Its so beautiful with chunks of different sized multicolored glitter. Perfect for the holidays and it was half off!!

SO thats all my current favorites!! What are yours??

Collective Haul (Ulta, CVS, MAC..)

Hey guys,

Back with another haul. Over the past couple of weeks I have purchased a few items I have been saving to show you all. So lets jump right into it!

The first thing I want to mention is the mirror. I picked that up at TJ Maxx for $12.99. A pretty boring purchase haha just needed a new makeup mirror.

Next up I finally purchased the Mac mineralized skinfinish. I have been debating on getting this product for so long I finally just did it. And now I want to go back for soft and gentle lol. I picked the shade light plus since its winter time and I don't have a tan. I believe this was $28. 

Next up I headed to CVS. First I grabbed the new Loreal True Match Lumi foundation. I saw MakeupByTiffanyD's video on this foundation and I really wanted to try it. I grabbed the shade porcelain light ivory is W1-2. Again because I am totally lacking in the tan department. I don't remember the exact price I paid but I think around $9.

While I was there I also decided to pick up a couple of nail polishes. Wet n Wild's spoiled line has some really cute colors for very cheap. $1.99 ea. So I grabbed two in the colors : pumping gas and jewelry heist. 

Next I went to Ulta, for the first time ever!! Mainly because its a pretty good drive away. I really could go crazy in that store but I held back since I'm saving money for Christmas and just picked up what I needed. 
I have been wanting a couple of new brushes and heard really great things about the Real Techniques brushes by Samantha Chapman of Pixiwoo on youtube. They were also buy 1 get 1 50% off. So I picked the expert face brush and the blush brush. Both brushes were $8.99 and I got one for half off. 

I also wanted to try a Joico hair product and saw some mini ones available for $3 which was perfect. So I grabbed the K-Pak Moisture intense hydrator, can't wait to use it. 

Okay guys thats my little collective haul. Hope you enjoyed it!!

Bath and Body Works Haul

Hey guys!,

I thought I would jump on here and share with you guys a quick Bath& Body Works Haul. Their hand soaps were 4 for $15 or 6 for $20. I also had a coupon to get something free (up to a $13 value) with a $15 purchase. So I decided I couldn't pass this deal up.

I love their new holiday collection, definitely gets me ready for the Holiday season. So here is what I picked up:
Winter Candy Apple

Fresh Sparkling Snow

Iced Ginger Bread

Winter Spice and Vanilla

And for my free gift I picked up the candle in winter. They describe this scent as "a fragrance that conjures up the moment when glittering icicles and sparkling snow transform the landscape- notes of pine needles, fir balsam and winter woods" It really does embody winter. 

Last night I also picked up some wrapping paper. I know its super early but I prefer to get everything done early. 

Are you guys excited for the Holidays?? Whats your favorite part? This year I am getting my first real tree! So exciting!

Favorite Nude Lip Products

Hey guys,

I am a huge fan nude lips so I thought I would share with you some of my favorites.

First up is Mac's Creme d'nude. I love mac lipsticks especially they cremesheens they are so moisturizing and smell great. The color is a perfect nude color not to orangey or pink, they perfect blend.

next is Revlon's colorburst lipstick in soft nude. This is a little bit of a deeper nude than creme d'nude.

Next is my absolute favorite nude. Revlon's lip butter in creme brulee. This one is my favorite because it is more of a brown undertone and super moisturizing. If you have dry or chapped lips wearing nude lipstick can highlight that, but the lip butter is so moisturizing it hides those imperfections. 

Maybelline nude nuances is another favorite because it has a more pink undertone. Some people online have compared it to Mac's Hue.

Next up is another Revlon lip butter this time in creamsicle. This a more sheer peachy nude color. I liked using this color during the summer and spring. But it great for everyday.

I thought I would also include some gloss. Mac's c-thru is a great sheer true nude color.

The last gloss is Elf's hypershine gloss in berry cherry. This is a deeper nude gloss, perfect for the colder months.

Even though I have so many nude lipsticks and glosses I'm always looking for more, what are your favorites??
