New Hair For Spring.

It's Spring time and I really wanted to go for a different hair style this year. I decided I wanted to go for a bob or short hairstyle. I received this unit from Ginny Lace Wigs and it's a celebrity inspired hairstyle from Taraji P. Henson. She always has the cutest short styles.

I am absolutely loving this hair though! It looks great worn straight, but I think I like it even more when it's wavy. I like to wave it up a bit with my Remington Curling Wand.




Be sure to watch the video for my thoughts and review on the hair!

Style: Taraji P. Henson Bob

Retail Price: $155

Hair Length: 10 inch
Hair Color: #1
Cap Size: Medium
Lace Color: Light Brown

Do you plan on changing your hair for the Spring and/or Summer seasons?

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette - Vinyl Collection.

I was in Walgreens when I came across a new eyeshadow palette collection from Wet n Wild Cosmetics. It's the Silver Lake Collection, which features six limited edition 6-pan eyeshadow palettes. These palettes will retail for $3.99 each. I decided to only pick up Vinyl Collection.

As you can see this palette has a variety of eyeshadow finishes.

Here is a close up of the eyeshadows in the Vinyl Collection eyeshadow palette.

Out of all of the eyeshadow palettes available in this collection I found Vinyl Collection to be the most pigmented. Each eyeshadow has great pigmentation! If you're not a huge fan of shimmer, pearl, or metallic finishes then you will probably want to pass on this particular palette.

Did you pick up this palette or any of the palettes from the Silver Lake Collections? Thoughts?

Monthly Subscription: Candy Club.

I was super excited to discover a monthly subscription of candy on Youtube a couple months ago. Candy Club is a monthly subscription that includes premier candies. They offer a month to month plan, a 6 month plan, and a 12 month plan. The cheapest plan available is $19.99, but this does not include the shipping rate. You can learn more about Candy Club by clicking here.

I finally decided to try it out when they were offering a $20 off coupon for St. Patrick's Day. That was an amazing deal that I could not pass up. This brought my total to $6, which is actually the shipping rate. It took about 1 business day to process and ship my order. It was delivered 2 days later.

This is how my Candy Club box arrived.
It included many more salt water taffy all around the box, but my sister and I devoured them.

The 3 different candies come in these cute canisters.

Each box includes 2-3 lbs of candy.

Each box comes with a card with details and descriptions of each candy.
The back of the card shows the nutrition facts and ingredients of each candy.

Gimbal's Sour Gourmet Jelly Beans

Sour Power Wild Cherry Belts

Haribo Gummi Techno Bears

Sweet's Cotton Candy Salt Water Taffy

Butterfields Peach Buds

I was really happy I received the box I wanted. I looked at a few reviews of other boxes and I definitely found this one to be the best one that was offered. The packaging was great and I was happy to see that each canister had a protective wrapping around it. Everything was fresh and none of the candy was melted. I enjoyed every single piece of candy that I received. Each candy was yummy and very flavorful.

The only thing I dislike about Candy Club is that you can not customized your box. You never know what you'll get until you actually open it. I would prefer to actually have a choice in what I receive and not be surprised. Adding some type of quiz to the website would be a good idea.

I really like the concept of Candy Club, so it's definitely worth trying out at least once!

Have you tried Candy Club? Will you try Candy Club? Thoughts?

DIY: $10 & Under Makeup Brush Holder.

I am currently working on changing and re-organizing my makeup collection and set up. My first project was to re-do and organize my makeup brushes. I could easily go out and buy some new makeup brush holders, but I thought it would be a lot more fun to customize some myself. Be sure to keep reading to see how to create this inexpensive but very cute makeup brush holder!

DIY: $10 & Under Makeup Brush Holder
Materials You Will Need:
Your choice of container
Decorative Fillers
Your choice of decoration(s)
A pair of scissors

Most of these items can be found at your local arts and craft stores. I decided to use a glass vase I found at the Dollar Tree to hold my makeup brushes. There are an assortment of sizes available and they're only $1 each! The rest of the items shown were purchased at my local Michaels. Michaels is always offering a 20% off, 40% off, or even a 50% off coupon.

Depending on your decoration of choice you may need a few more supplies like glue, a glue gun, or a sewing needle. My decoration of choice is an adhesive trim, which only requires the use of scissors.

I purchased this adhesive trim from Michaels. It retails for $1.50 and there are a range of colors.

Here is a close of the blinged out adhesive trim.

You're going to want to measure your adhesive trim around your container and cut where necessary.
Then you will carefully place it in your designated spot on your container.

I decided to place mine around the rim of the glass vase.

I then thought it would be cuter to add a little bit of bling towards the bottom as well.

Now it's time to add in your decorative fillers and your makeup brushes!

This is the final results of my makeup brush holder. I really loved how it turned out.

Everything costed me less than $10 total and it takes less than 5 minutes to do. If you decide to recreate my makeup brush holder then please do share it with me! I would love to see how yours turned out.

How do you store your makeup brushes?
