Dollar Tree Haul

Hello my MJF stars,
Since I'm behind on my posts so I decided to post another haul this time its a Dollar Tree Haul. So lets get into what I got.




I saw these LED Candles last year and did not buy them but this year I saw them and had to pick them up.


I found some books that sounded interresting so I got Dreamtime Stories Grave Secrets Anne and Gina Cascone and Extremities David Lubar. I figure for $1 that would give them a go. I alos found the seen on TV Luma Lights and thought I would give them a try.



I saw the new paltter that they have this year and I really liked Bats Platter because it looked so cute. I also got this Tape with these cute little owls on it and could not pass it up. I also got more of the LED Skull Lights and LED Bat Lights.



The last thing I got was this Window Decorations with skulls because you know I love skulls and had to have it.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Dollar Tree Haul.

First Halloween Eye Look 2017

Hello my MJF stars,
I wanted to do some Halloween themed eye looks so I wanted to do something bright so I thought do a pumpkin themed eye look. So I finally used my NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette in Bright so lets get into what I created.


NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette Brights Numbered

Products I used:
Jordana Eyeshadow base eye primer 
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Cottage Cheese
NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette Brights:
3: eyelid
13: crease and bottom lash
14: above crease and bottom lash
Wet N Wild single eyeshadow Brulee: brow bone 
Urban decay 24/7 glid on eye pencil Graffiti: bottom lash
Makeup Revolution Ghost Lights Vivid Baked Highlighter: inner corner eyelid
L.A Colors Grafix eyeliner Black
Too Faced Better Then Sex Mascara 

Like I said I wanted to a bright pumpkin themed eye look. So I used green color #13 in the crease which I though was a perfect green for the stem of a pumpkin. I then put the bright orange #3 on eyelid which I thought is a perfect pumpkin color. I first put NYX Jumbo Pencil on eyelid as a base for that bight orange to stick to which I probably did not need because it was so pigments but I wanted to make sure it was as bight as it was in the palette. I decided to blow out/ soften the edges of the green to bend in to the brow highlight color. So I used the lime green #14 color in the palette. I really love how that looked. I then lined my bottom lash with Urban Decay's pencil in Graffiti for #13 to go top off and then #14 to soften edges. I put Brulee on brow bone and put my new highlighter from Makeup Revolution in the inner corner which looks really pretty with the orange. I then put on eye liner and mascara. I was thinking of put lashes on but thought it look good with out. I really love how this eye look came out. The green brought out the green in my hazel eyes.

I hope you liked this look and if you have any suggestions on a eye look you like to see me do lets me know. I'm open to some ideas.

Old Navy, Sally Beauty and Toys R Us Hauls

Hello my MJF stars,
I have three hauls to share with you from Old Navy, Sally Beauty and Toys R Us. But first I want to give you an update on the fires in the county I live in which is almost fully contained so great-full for the fire fighters and everyone helping with horrible fires. My house is safe and no loss of any more houses that I was worried about (the house I was house sitting at and her mothers house in Sonoma). Lets back what you are here for which is the hauls so lets get into what I got.




I stopped at Old Navy and I was so happy to find this Michael Jackson's Thriller Mens T-shirt because Thriller is my favorite song. It was $19.99.


I also went to the Sally Beauty supply store next door and they had 50% off clearance so I of course had to get a few nail polishes. I was so surprised that they had some China Glaze nail polishes from the My Little Pony collection left and on sale. They had only the set called Songbird Serenade on sale for $11.29 then 50% off which was $5.64 and I got more off since I have sallys card. I really wanted Songbird Serenade and Best Ponies Forever was a bonus. I also got some Finger Paints since they were around $1 or less a piece and even less with 50% off and sallys discount. I got Finger Paints Guggen I'm Lime, DIY Diva, Clay On Words
and Endless wear Great Graphite!. 


I also went to Toys R Us and found the Disney Tsum tsum Mystery Pack Series 7 so I got three. They were $2.99 each.
I was also happy to find Funko Pint Size Heroes Horror but they were all open which I was happy about because I wanted Elvira and could see her head lol. She was $3.99


I got Snow White, Mike and Pascal



Funko Pint Size Heroes Horror: Elvira

I hope you enjoyed seeing these hauls.

Second Halloween Mani 2017: Clay On Words and Black

Hello my MJF stars,
If you wondering why I posted two mani's today check out my last post. Here is my second Halloween Mani so lets see what I created this time.

inside lighting with flash

outside lighting with flash

outside ligting no flash

Products I used:
Revlon Colorstay Base Coat 
Finger Paints Clay On Words
Kleancolor Black
Fing'rs edge nail decal art 31116 Skull and Cross bones
Jordana Quick Dry Top Coat

If you saw my last post on my first Halloween mani and how horrible it came out. I thought I would do a gradient mani with orange and black. So I used Finger paints Clay on Words which is a pretty bright orange color with blue shimmer. I sponged on the Kleancolor black on tips because Clay on Words you can see nail through the polish with three coats. I also wanted to do a gradient like I said so I it did not matter. I also put a  skull decal which I really like how it came out. But a couple days later I had cracking again which was bummer. I also used a different top and bottom coat from the last mani that was cracking. So it might be the Finger paints nail polish because the other polish was a endless polish which is also finger paint brand. I might try those polishes again with another top coat and if it cracks then I know its the Finger paints polishes. Anyways I really loved how this mani came out and was bummed that it cracked and chipped off (By chipped off I mean the whole nail polish came off not a little chip wear) so fast.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my mani's this week.

First Halloween Mani 2017: Dreamy Coat and Great Graphite!

Hello my MJF stars,
If you want to know why I didn't post last week read my last post. Anyways, since I didn't post a mani last week I will post two today and they are both Halloween themed mani's. So lets get into the first mani I created.

inside lighting with flash

inside lighting and showing next day chipping
Products I used:
Milani Base Coat 
Kiss gel strong dreamy coat
Endless wear Great Graphite!
Halloween Nail Stickers 104
Milani Quick Dry Top Coat

I wanted to do a glittery gray mani with some Halloween nail stickers. So I thought Kiss nail polish in Dreamy coat would be a good base for Endless wear Great Graphite! which I thought was a thin topper which I wrong. It probably would be find by itself with no base color. You can't really see the base color which I was bummed about. Then I put Milani Quick Dry Top Coat and it all went to crap. As you can see in the next photo it dried so fast it crinkled and started to crack off. I was really mad that it did that. I don't know if it was just the top coat fault or combo of having to many layers or what. So the next day I did another mani which I posted next.

Can you help me find out what happened?
 Let me know below if this happened to you before.
I hope you enjoyed seeing this mani even though it went wrong.

99 Cents Only Store Haul

Hello my MJF stars,
I know its been a week since I posted on this blog but there is a reason. If you haven't seen the news or my Instagram page. There are a few big fires in the county I live in right now. I don't want to get into it because it bring back bad memories and bad feelings for me. I just want to move forward but also in back of my mind. I'm thinking about the fires that still burning close to my home and few friends homes that are still standing. One of my friends lost her home already and its so hard right now. We are safe and hoping these fires will stop sooner then later. 

I'm trying to get back to normal to keep my mind busy. I'm trying to post some Halloween mani's and looks on here before Halloween but time will tell.

 I do have this 99 cents only store haul that I was going to post on Monday and never got a chance to so here it is.




I picked up another one of the Magic Sequin Pillows so that I had a pair. It was $2.99.


My dad found the LED Finger Spinners and he know I was looking for them. So he got me the Green and Blue.


I also found few Halloween items that I could not pass up so lets get into what I got. I saw this Happy Halloween Bob Wig in Red for $1.99 which is really cheap for a wig so I thought be something I can use for a costume look this year. I found this Happy Halloween Solar Mummy which was too cute not to pass up. I also found these Princessa Glow Me Up color sticks in three colors purple, pink and blue. I thought I could use in a costume and  $.99 each it would not brake the bank if it does not work. I also got the Princessa Neon + Glow in the Dark nail polish in pink, green and purple. You know I love glow in dark and neon polishes so I thought I would give them a go. I got four of the Happy Halloween Earrings which I never seen at 99 cents before. So I had to get the cameo earrings with the pink, red and green roses. I also got the purple spider ones too.


Here are the swatches of Princessa color sticks.


I also got theses Happy Halloween Spider Web Tulle in black and green. I got this Beauty Essentials Adjustable Headband try out when I wear a face mask or wash my face. I picked up more of Shave Guard Razors because I really like them and they are really good for the price. I got a bag of the Luden's Throat Drops Wild Cherry and Best Health methol cough drops Cherry. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing my haul.
 Please send good vibes to Sonoma County and I know we will get through this together.

First Eye Look: Nyx Happy Birthday palette with NYX Roll on shimmer

Hello my MJF stars,
Its been awhile since I posted an eye look so I thought I would post this first eye look using my NYX Happy Birthday palette and I also used one of the NYX roll on shimmer too. So lets get into this eye look that I created.


NYX Happy Birthday Eyeshadow Palette

Products I used:
Jordana Eyeshadow Base Eye Primer
Nyx Happy Birthday palette:
8: crease
10: crease and brow bone
9: outer v
Nyx glitter primer
Nyx Roll on shimmer res01 Green
W7 Liquid Eyeliner Black
Covergirl Lashblash Volume Mascara Very Black

When I first saw this palette it reminded me of fall because it had a lot of browns, oranges, green and purple which I love. I wanted to wear the NYX roll on shimmer in green so I thought it would go perfect with this palette. They don't have name so I had to number them. I used 8 in crease which is a matte chocolate color. I also used 10 which is a matte cream color to lighten and blend 8.  I put 9 which is dark plum purple color in the outer v. I put Nyx roll on shimmer in Green on the lid which I thought look really pretty with the purple and browns. I really love how this eye look came out and can't wait to try another eye look with palette. I sad that everyone can't own this palette since it was only for a birthday gift from Ulta.

I hope you enjoyed this eye look that I created.

Pastel Teal, Pastel Vibes and Hay Girl Hay! Mani

Hello my MJF stars,
I'm here with another mani for Manicure Mondays so lets get into what I created this week.

indoor light with flash

outside light with flash

outside light no flash
Products I used:
Milani Base Coat
Kleancolor Pastel Teal
Finger Paints Pastel Vibes
China Glaze Hay Girl Hay!
Jordana Quick Shine Topcoat

I wanted to wear some pastel colors this week for some reason so I used Kleancolor Pastel Teal which is a pretty pastel blue. I also borrowed my mom nail polish from Finger Paints in the color Pastel Vibes which is a pretty pastel purple. I put Chine Glaze Hay Girl Hay! from the my little ponies collection. Its a pretty iridescent glitter with some white glitter which I was bummed that it had white glitter because in the bottle you could not see the white glitter and I just don't like it. I wish they did not put the white glitter in with that pretty iridescent glitter. I'm so glad that I did not buy the regular size bottle because I probably will not ware it a again. If you are like me and not a big fan of white glitter you might want to skip Hay Girl Hay!

I hope you enjoyed this weeks mani for Manicure Mondays.
