Adora Just Wanted A Fizzy Peach Bellini...

The Tini Beauty and ModelCo blush were both in my Ipsy this month.  I don't do blush a lot but I thought this one just looked like it'd make a super pretty eyeshadow color, so that's what I did.

Do you get Ipsy?  What did you think of this month?  I wish I'd gotten a few different items in mine but overall I was pretty pleased.  I always post what I get on my Instagram (which you should follow me on <3 ), if you're interested in knowing more about Ipsy and signing up (10 dollars a month, 4-5 items, deluxe sample and full size items), click HERE.

Vibrance Pure Healthy Hair Formula...

Vibrance Pure Healthy Hair Formula.
60 Capsules.

On sale for 39.95 on Amazon.

Here's what Amazon says:
  • Natural Herbal Extracts & Drug-Free Ingredients Researched to Promote Faster and Healthier Hair Growth
  • Extra Strength Pure Formulation Includes OptiMSM & 37 Vitamins, Minerals, and Herbs for Hair Strengthening Nutritional Support
  • Try Vibrance risk-free! Backed by our 100% Money Back Guarantee! For best results, use for a minimum of 3 months.

Take two (2) capsules daily before a meal with an 8 ounce glass of water. For best results, use for a minimum of 3 months.

I have had mixed results with these types of products, so we'll see how it goes with this one.  Maybe I just have to find the right fit.   Seems to be a lot more than just Biotin in it, so that might be nice to have just in general as well.

If you're interested in trying it (and who wouldn't want healthy lovely hair?) I can give you a Buy One Get One code to be used on Amazon: BBVRB1G1
Which if you're to take this for a minimum of three months, and each bottle is a month's worth that would certainly be helpful in doing that.

Tarte Cosmetics...

I have been looking to expand my collection of more high end makeup.   There's a lot of great brands out there and after doing a little searching around, I decided tarte cosmetics seemed like a good candidate, after perusing their site a bit.  Here are a few things that have caught my eye the most:

Lights, Camera Splashes (best waterproof mascara site says).
I have been on the hunt for a good "Holy Grail" waterproof mascara, and this one seems to be raved about (5 stars on the site, 144 reviews).   I've only tried a hand full of high end mascaras, and they have to be pretty amazing, and this one sounds really awesome.

LipSurgence matte lip tint
I am all for any good matte lip color, the shade Envy is calling my name loud and clear.   This product is also another very highly rated one on the site, also 5 stars, 433 reviews.  I do wish they had a few good red shades however, I'm a sucker for all red lip colors.

tartiest clay paint eyeliner
This item I feel might be a newer product, only has 3 reviews so far (though still 5 stars).  I haven't seen a product quite like this before, the liner itself seems to be in a squeeze tube and then it comes with a brush to apply to the product with.  This might have my curiosity the most.

Amazonian clay waterproof brow mousse
Another 5 star reviewed product (231 reviews).  I am always on the search for a best brow product.  I have almost always used a pencil, and I'd like to branch out into a gel or a cream.  It's lovely that this comes with a double ended brush to help apply it with.   The color I think I'd go with is the Rich Brown, I would just hope it doesn't lean too red, that can be a problem for me, but it looks good on the site.

I must also say about tarte cosmetics is they have the most adorable packaging, and they put together the cutest sets.  I've eyed them numerous times, it's hard not to, I'm a sucker for good packaging.  I'd rather pull out something good looking for a touch up out of my purse than something boring.

Who doesn't love face masks?  I know I do.  I was super excited to get this one.  Part of me hopes I don't fall too in love with it (but I'm sure I will, just like I did their hair mask) just based on the price tag, but I suppose it'll come down to how often I use it and how long it lasts to determine if that's worth it, which I can't quite yet.

Does everyone else know about Emu Oil?  I honestly had never heard about it before.   But like a broken record I am for anything that proves to be moisturizing.  Though the sent is a bit off putting I will say.

Page Count: 83
Clearly a total of ten stories.

On sale for .99 cents on Amazon.

Here is what is says on Amazon:
Exciting, spooky and scary stories for everyone, edited by Rayne Hall. 

Ten authors spin creepy yarns, each with a different writing style and a different way of telling a story. Allow these fantasy and horror stories to haunt you, and see which story resonates most with you. 

1. GHOSTS CAN BLEED by Tracie McBride
Ghosts can bleed. Maurice knows, because he is one. 
2. DANCERS by William Meikle
A country graveyard in winter can be made warm.
3. BREAKWATER BEACH by Carole Ann Moleti
Ever felt that you've been somewhere before? Perhaps you have.
4. THE PIANO MAN by Kiersten Hartrim
No one has played the old upright piano in the bar since the Lady Pianist died.
5. TAKE ME TO ST ROCH'S by Rayne Hall
Never pick up hitchhikers.
Forget everything you've ever heard about what they are. 
7. MOTHER MINE by April Grey
A mother's love never dies.
8. THE MINE SHAFT by Sera Hayes
Curiosity leading superstition digs an early grave. 
9. DARK REUNION by Jonathan Broughton
Love sours when you commit murder.
10. A PUDDLE OF DEAD by Grayson Bray Morris
Her long-lost love is back... or is he?

To preserve the authors' individual voices, the stories preserve the British, American and Australian spellings, grammar and punctuation. Some stories have been previously published in magazines, e-zines, story collections and anthologies.

I don't know about you, but I absolutely love a ghost story, specially a good ghost story.  And I am always on the hunt for a good one.   Here you will find ten.   I think my favorite stories that were in this compilation are:
Breakwater Beach (Carol Ann Moleti), great Deja Vu feel.  

Dark Reunion (Jonathan Broughton), what a tale.
A Puddle Of Dead (Grayson Bray Morris), good and spooky.

I don't have a Kindle myself (sometimes I wish I'd gone that route - I have a Nook, but I think when I upgrade it'll be with a tablet and put the apps for Nook and Kindle on it) but I do have the app on my phone and on my computer, just in case maybe you don't have a Kindle either and aren't familiar <3

The first two shots show the packaging it comes in.  This shot is showing the adorable candles it comes with.  How utterly cute is that?  I love that detail.

There is also a cover on the candle to protect it (I believe).
Here is the candle brand new, I love the glass, it has a kind of 70s feel with that Loft font.  Love it.  When the candle is gone I might stick some brushes in the glass on my vanity. 
Top of the candle.  Unburnt clearly.

The scent for this one is maple and vanilla, they carry two more scents Cinnamon Bark (No. 2) and Lilac (No. 3).   I didn't have a choice in the scent, if I did I would have gotten Lilac without  a split second thought.   Lilac is one of my alllllll time favorite scents.  So I wish I had that one too.  This one smells nice, so I bet that one smells amazing.
Showing the actual cute matches.  White tipped, just looks aesthetically pleasing with everything else.

Still in love with that Loft font too.
 Candle burning.  
And Mommy was going to review a candle and someone had to be involved, cause clearly he is a candle expert.

but he looks adorable right?

All in all great candle, good scent, I really love it.   Now I just need lilac.
