Over Protective

image

I I’ve been wearing my hair straightened after months of protective styling. I am constantly paranoid about breakage as a result. So I’m going back under wraps with my hair to continue to hit my hair goals. Usually you will find my hair in a bun, phony pony, or twisting. With my growth I’m now able to do flat twists around the perimeter. One more protective style so I can continue growing my hair back. #growwithme

With Love and Pixie Dust,

Spring Wardrobe Wishlist #1

Don’t shoot me…but we got a new puppy, and that’s why I haven’t posted.  But I’m here now, right!

I wanted to share some of the items on my Spring Wardrobe Checklist.  I stop buying winter clothes at the end of Dec. b/c the climate in my part of the world is fairly mild most of the year.  When I do shop the Winter clearance sales, the pieces have to be able to transition for Spring/Summer/Fall, because otherwise its not worth it for me!

These are some items that I saw today, or either bought already!

1.  Floral Wingtips(Forever 21)

I almost hate to post these, for fear that the entire stock will be sold out.  But I can see these paired up w/summer dresses, linen or lightweight trousers, or shorts…too cute.

2. Cute Dresses

I fiend for dresses!  Unfortunately, I don’t really like to wear them in the Winter.  So another reason I can’t wait for March!   H&M has some really cute ones, in awesome colors.   Can you say Papaya?  That’s the name of this color…beautiful!

 

3.  MAC Hot Gossip Lippy

My current fave!  How did I miss this one all these years?  Its a cream finish lipstick, you just have to try it!  I bought this one last week, and can’t stop wearing it.

 

I’ll be back with more goodies tomorrow.  I promise!

Just in the NYX of Time…

If you love makeup, like I do.  I have a sale for you.  NYX Cosmetics is having an anniversary sale and most of their most popular items are 1.20 each!!  I just added an eyeshadow palette to my cart that is regular 104.00 and is now on sale for 25.00!  I got the lash growing eyeliner(which works) for 1.20 and its regularly 14.00!  I’ll post a video once I get the items back, they say it can be up to 3 weeks for the order to arrive.  The site is running super slow, so be patient, I’m actually ordering via my phone, because my computer won’t load the site.    Check it out!

Pixie Hair/Face

For today’s face, I went with the coral them of the clothes that I was wearing.  On my face I primed with Rimmel’s Fix and Perfect, then used Studio Fix Foundation(powder) in NC 45.  I have been using ELF Tone Correcting Concealer to cover dark spots and undereye as well.  I use the Spice color.  I then contured with Wet and Wild’s Bronzer, and used NYX Cinnamon for blush today.  I finished the look with MAC MSF Gold Deposit for highlighting.  I dusted my entire face with Bobbi Brown‘s Bronzer. Eyebrows were done with MAC’s Eyebrow Crayon in Stud.  My eyes are NYX Orange eyeshadow, and the crease is a brown from one of Wet and Wild’s Color Icon palettes.  I’m wearing lashes from the beauty supply as well.  My mascara is by Rimmel and its in the pink tube.  This makeup is after a full day of work, as well.

 Oh yeah, almost forgot, my lips…that is MAC’s Morange.  When I bought it the MAC rep said you really like color, and I do, I love this lipstick.  I toned it down with the MAC Chestnut pencil, but its really pretty without it as well.

Also my hair is growing!! I’m trying to grow my hair into a “faux” hawk…So I’m growing out the center of my hair, keeping the sides and back very low.  I washed it yesterday and noticed growth…also I must rave about Nairobi’s Foam Wrap Lotion, I’ll d0 so on a seperate post.

 My bangs were very short in January and now they are at my eyebrows!  Yea for me!  Hopefully I’ll be where I want by June or July!
