Image
**May Contain Press Samples**
Once again, I have teamed up with some brilliantly talented ladies and we are sooooo excited to bring you some end of the summer goodies! 
I am only going to talk a little bit about my prize, but it's a surprise...prize! I have used soooo many fun products this summer and I thought that right before Fall, I give you one last hoorah at my summertime favorites! First up, something that will give you a summer glow all year round! This product is a must have for me! I am also throwing in some shades for your eyes, color for your nails and goodies for your face.
Today I've joined up with 16 other beauty bloggers to do a fun blog hop GIVEAWAY! If you are unfamiliar what a blog hop is, it's pretty simple. Each lady in the hop is giving away something (beauty-related) on their own blog and you can click through from one blog to another, entering the giveaways as you go, until you end up back where you started -- right here at my blog. Once you do that…

Putting Myself in a Time Out

Image
These last two weeks have been so overwhelming for me. I have been scratching my way and fighting to stay afloat. It has now come to a point where trying to juggle all my time is not enjoyable anymore. Struggling between making a post and sleep or hanging out with my kids is horrible!  I am just taking a break for the week to get myself back on schedule. I left you with a nice little giveaway mid-week but besides that, I am taking a little Color Me So Crazy break. I will still be posting stuff on my social media channels. This is especially for Snapchat! I am always on snappy- Szizzy12184. See you all in a week!!

NCC August Challenge- NEONS

**May Contain Press Samples**
I am soooo far behind in this challenge BUT I have had a suppper busy month! Work has been super stress-fully crazy, but it keeps me busy and pays the bills. Lol! Anyway, I really wanted to participate at least in this months challenge so I went for it all!  I'm using a whole bunch of different neon colors which reminded me that I don't have nearly enough. I think the whole Mentality thing put a damper on that, for me. So, I found as many as I could and went to stamp town! Colors Used: Orly- Truly Tangerine KB Shimmer- How Low Can You Flamingo? Glam Glaze- Tubular Essie- Butler Please

daniPro Nail Polish Review

Image
**Press Sample** I am so happy to show you a new-to-me-brand in nail polish. I have two colors to show you and some fun information to share with you! daniPro is a doctor formulated polish with Undecylenic Acid, biotin and other antioxidants. daniPro was created to be sold at podiatrists office, but now you can buy it online here. Podiatrist office? Well, let me explain. This polish was created to prevent nail fungus and it's 5-Free! First up is the original red in the color First Kiss. This is THE red that you want to use when you are going for that sassy and sophisticated look. The application was very smooth and not unusual, at all. I really thought that since this was a specially formulated polish, it would have some kind of smell or texture but it didn't. It was slightly stronger smelling, but along the lines with other 5-Free polishes. I used two coats in these pictures just to ensure full, smooth coverage. Next up is their Perfect Pink in Forever Girl. This is a fu…

Pacifica Beauty with Some Olides and Newbies PLUS a Giveaway

Image
**Press Samples**
Today, I am bringing back some oldies and some newbies from Pacifica. I really love this brand. In fact, one of my favorite highlighters is a Pacifica product. You can check it out here. I have had some really great products from Pacifica and I am glad to show you a couple more.  First, I have this awesome palette, Power of Love, from Pacifica. There are 10 different colors in this little flip top beauty. There is matte, satin and pearl finishes which makes it really nice to create a sweet multi-dimensional look. Each of the colors are silky smooth and stay that way throughout application. The colors are packed with pigment. The shadows are infused with coconut to create a smooth and crease-less application. All of these are made without animal testing, animal ingredients, phthalates, talc, parabens, or petroleum. Another awesome thing is that Pacifica will donate a portion of their sales to support clean water! All packaging is recyclable and the printing is done…

Jergens Instant Sun- How Does it Match Up?

Image
**Press Sample**
As you know, I have had a lot of different self-tanning products on my blog. I have such sensitive skin that I just enjoy a good self-tan as opposed to the real sun. Trust me, it's very hard to get a great self-tanner. They are either too fake looking, take too long to dry or they are too expensive. When I was given an opportunity to try out Jergens Natural Glow Instant Sun,  that I use a lot of, I was excited! Jergens is a great brand name that is available at most drugstores. I happen to love drugstore brands just because I can pick them up when I am picking up other "necessitates". This is available in 2 shades; Light Bronze and Deep Bronze. The big claim with this product is that it dries in less then 60 seconds and mimics the natural sun. I have used this about 4 times to really get a sense of how it applies and then how it wears. You should always exfoliate before applying a self tanner so you know you have a nice even surface to work with. It …

Find Your Signature Fragrance with Fragrance Outlet: The Widest Selection of Designer Perfumes and Fragrances, Anywhere!

Image
**Sponsored by BrandBacker**
A couple of weeks ago, I had an opportunity to review a product from The Fragrance Outlet. I was able to go on their site, find my product and purchase it. I was given Bamboo by franck oliver. Before I talk about this perfume, I want to share my experience with the The Fragrance Outlet. The Fragrance Outlet was founded in 1990 and now has over a 100 stores. The first store was actually in the Potomac Mills Mall in Washington, D.C. The idea behind the stores was the build a store to offer a wide variety of perfumes and fragrances sold by highly knowledgeable staff to help customers have the best experience. With plans to build another 100 stores over the next several years, there was need for an online presence. Now that you can purchase your favorite fragrance online at FragranceOutlet.com, there is no longer a need to even leave your house! This is a great idea if you already know the scent you are looking for. I think it would difficult to purchase a b…

Derma E for All You Skin Care Needs!

Image
**Press Sample**
derma e came into my life about a year ago when I did a campaign through another company. It was to show off the derma e line at Target. After that, I have been using the Hydrating Night Creme for my night moisturizer. I am so happy I get to try the other two products! derma e is a family owned company which is based in California which was created in 1984. All of their products are cruelty- free, gluten-free, 100% vegan, paraben free, phthalates free, sodium lauryl sulfate free, petrolatum free and mineral oil free. There are never artificial colors or GMOs and all recyclable. We will start with my favorite product from derma e; the Hydrating Night Creme. First, this smells heavenly. I can't put my finger on the smell but it's a mix between floral and aloe scent. Some ingredients in this product include hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, vitamin A, green tea, aloe extract, and macadamia ternfolioa seed oil. All ingredients are certified organic. It is super thick b…

**Press Samples**
Today, I have Da Vinci Cosmetics on the blog and it is so awesome! I got a little sample of Da Vinci Cosmetics in an Ipsy bag and I fell in love. The first item I have to share is the Nine Stack. There are 12 different Nine Stacks that you get 9 different eyeshadows for only $25.  They are all beautiful The awesome thing about these eyshadow pods are that they can be used so many different ways. Da Vinci Cosmetics says they are 11-in-1. They can be used as a metallic eyeshadow, matte eyeshadow, shimmery eyeshadow, eye-liner, mascara, lip gloss, nail polish, blush, bronzer, body art glitter and temporary hair color. I got to use this as a hair highlighter, shimmer shadow, eyeliner, matte shadow, and a lip color. These don't have names so I am just going to describe how beautiful they are to you while you enjoy some pictures! First up, I used the black matte, as a liner, and then a bronze and red shimmer shadow to create a fun fall look.  I packed on the c…
