Hey guys,
Tropical Issac has been putting a damper on my weekend but not even the rain couldn't stop me from getting my nails done:)! What we women do for beauty! Lol. Using one of new my favorites nail polish colors from Wet N Wild called Pacific Blue and OPI Alpine Snow, I had my nail lady come up with this design for this week nails of the week. Check out the pictures below. Enjoy.

I love strips and glitter and like to incorporate them any opportunity I get:)!

Twitter Prize: Sleek 2012 Collection Glory I-Divine

Awhile back, Sleek Makeup was hosting a twitter competition that I decided to participate in. I didn't know what the prize was for but I decided if I won, it would be a nice way of trying out Sleek Makeup. Let me tell you, I was so happy that I did because I ended up being one of the chosen winners! I couldn't tell you how happy I was to see the tweet that I won:). Like I said I didn't know what the prize was until I got the package in the mail and low and behold it was the i-Divine 2012 Limited Edition Palette. This palette was everything that I was looking for. It was like Sleek knew what to send me and this made me a happy girl. Lol.

This palette contains 12 highly pigmented eye shadows and I can't stress HIGHLY enough. The top row consist of 6 shimmering neutral shades: two golds, a bronze and three variants of silver. The bottom row is my favorite part of the palette because it's such a contrasting row to the top. The bottom row features colorful bright colors that would appeal to the daring:). It contains two variants of reds and blues, a green and yellowish gold. These colors are rich in color and they have a great color payoff! What you see is what you get. It was like they took two different palettes to create this wonderful masterpiece. Now I no longer need to grab two palettes to create a colorful look when everything that I need is in this go to container of colorful goodness! 

Check out the swatches below and let me know if you ever tried any of Sleeks Makeup. xoxo

The people from Sleek were nice enough to include a thank you letter to me - which was a nice gesture on their part and has made me a customer for life. 

The Glory palette is part of Sleek's 2012 Collection that celebrates the summer Olympics that were held in London this year.

What I really enjoyed about this package was the eye-catching box that the Glory came in. It's a very patriotic themed palette which helps you get in the spirit of the Olympics.

 Each of the names and colors in this palette where inspired by London's famous underground stations.

Top Row: Left To Right
Bottom Row: From Left to Right

(I did not use a primer to apply these colors and some required several coats to get the color to show.)

This product is part of the limited 2012 Collection and retails for $9.99 but sadly it's can not be shipped to the United States or Canada due to FDA regulations:(.

My Bachelorette Weekend:)!!

My girls and I decided to go to Puerto Rico for my bachelorette weekend the last week of July and we had such an amazing time there! The food was AHMAZING and the people there were really nice. We had so much fun there, that I even lost my voice - which is a clear sigh of the amount of fun we had. Lol. There were so many things that we did in the four days that we were PR and I decided to share little bit of our adventure with you guys:)! Check out some of the pictures below of me and my girls and enjoy the video!
