My latest Polyvore set

I've been hooked on Polyvore lately, I can spend hours on there putting things together and finding items. Just wanted to share the set I made just a little bit ago...


Let me know what you think!

I still need to get used to things on there and learn how to put them in different formations because some people's sets on there are just WOW. I love browsing through them!

Do you use polyvore?

It's Christmas Eve! :)

Have you heard of BzzAgent?

Bzzagent is a site that is word of mouth marketing.
I have been a bzzagent for almost a year now and I really love it! You fill out surveys so they know what you're interested in and if you qualify for a bzzcampaign then you may get to try out products that are either not out yet or are new to the market. I have gotten the opportunity to test out products from clean and clear, Burt's bees and L'oreal. They just ask that you share your opinions by submitting a report. You can also follow brands you love and add content about products you've tried and earn points to have more benefits. There's also a section where you can visit different websites, fill out a survey and share you thoughts on it that also gives you points. These points or "honeycombs" help you climb the ladder for earlier campaign invites. It might sound a little complicated but I promise you it's not and it's worth it!

Some info about Bzzagent:

We're a word-of-mouth media network powered by 600,000 people. We pair consumers with products and supply digital tools that make widespread opinion-sharing easy.

-We were founded in 2001

-We've run 600+ programs for major brands including Unilever, Kraft and Philips

-Our participants have spread word of mouth to nearly 100 million family and friends

The Bzzagent's word of mouth network:

Our word-of-mouth network is powered by our 600,000 socially connected Agents. Located throughout the US, Canada and the UK, our growing community is comprised of consumers who are:*

Viral: Twice as likely as the general public to recommend products and services
Tuned In: Twice as likely as the average consumer to keep up with a broad range of products and services

Networked: Twice as many friends, neighbors and acquaintances as the general public

Our Agents are eager to try new products and share their opinions throughout their social networks. But our members do more than increase awareness about your products. Their honest recommendations add a layer of trust that's absent in traditional media. BzzAgent's word of mouth network can offer something that no other medium can: credibility.

I am in no way being compensated for telling you about this site, I just wanted to share some info on it for some of you out there that would like to test out some great products and share your thoughts on it!

NOTW and tips for cuticles

Hey Everyone!!

I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for Christmas! I spent almost the whole weekend shopping with my fam finishing up our gift shopping. It was crazy busy everywhere and I'm so glad it's done! But anyways, I just wanted to share my nails for the week. I couldn't decide on a color so I just went with black, I might change it soon though.

I used L.A. Colors base coat, Pure Ice in Black Rage and L.A. Girl Diamond Strength top coat.

Now let's talk a little about cuticles...first here's what I use to care for them:

I think it's really important to take care of your cuticles because they prevent those little hangnails that form in the sides of your nails. If you've gotten one before then you know they can be painful especially removing them. Before I actually paint my nails I take some cuticle oil on a q-tip and apply it to each cuticle then massage it in for a few seconds. Then I take the metal cuticle pusher shown above and very gently push my cuticles back, I think this way is better than cutting them off you do have to do it often but I don't really mind. I also prefer the metal pusher to orange sticks just because it's reusable just sanitize and it's ready to go. During the week I always use cuticle cream (Thank you Linea!) just take a little bit and apply it, it keeps them soft. That's pretty much all I do. It just takes a few extra minutes and it's totally worth it!

How do you care for your cuticles? I would love to hear your tips!

First Video-My Current Skincare Routine

Hey Everyone! OK so this is a HUGE step for me because I never like seeing myself on camera and never thought I would even make a video but here I am. It took me a million tries and even this one wasn't the best but it was better than ones I filmed before it. I'm just trying this out for now and I'm not sure if I'll keep on doing it so that's why I didn't upload it to YT but yeah...

I'm just going to warn you now, I keep looking around because I knew what I wanted to say and was trying to remember lol. I also seem kind of blah at times too because this was the 10th time I filmed this. OK I'll stop now and just let you watch!

Products mentioned in the vid:

Lush coalface cleanser
Clean and Clear deep cleansing astringent
Lush tea tree water toner
Clean and Clear oil-free dual action moisturizer
Freeman's avocado and oatmeal clay masque
Biore deep cleansing pore strips
Burt's Bees acne solutions spot treatment

Let me know what you think!

NOTW and Nail Tip

First I wanted to say hi and a big THANK YOU to all my new followers! :)

This is my nails for the week. I used Sinful Colors in Creamy Pink, it's one of my faves from them. It's a really nice bright pink with the tiniest bit of shimmer. LOVE. I forgot to take a pic the day I painted them so that's why they look a tiny bit worn.

Nail Tip:

Do you ever have those times when you're painting your nails and it seems to get all around the nail no matter how hard you try not to get it there? Well I used to always use q-tips to clean it up but I always found that they didn't allow me to get close enough to the nail to really get all the polish off. So now I use a brush instead, one that has synthetic bristles and is really small. I just dip it in a little acetone and clean everything up, it works so much better than q-tips and you also don't have to worry about cotton fibers getting on your polish either!

Do any of you do this already?

Black Friday and Target haul

Hello Beautifuls!!

Sorry it's been almost a week since I last posted but I'm back with my very small black Friday haul and a Target haul I did just a few days ago. I didn't get too much for myself so that's why both of these hauls are small but yeah...

These cute purple booties are from kohl's they were a door buster for $12.99. They are so comfy, I love them! I just wish I would have got the other colors.

At Target I got some HK pens and highlighters from the dollar section and they had these deal packs on make up so I picked up a 2 pack of the Loreal Double Extend beauty tubes mascara for $9.99.

Also at Target I finally found this purse. It had to have been over a month ago Van posted a pic of this purse on Twitter and asked if she should get it but I was too late in replying, but ever since I wanted it so bad. I went to so many Target's and they never had it, so on Monday when I stopped by another one there it was. I had to have it!!

So there they are, I know only one thing was make up but I still wanted to share!

Did any of you ladies take advantage of the black Friday sales? Or did you opt for cyber Monday instead?
