March Favorites...!!! 2011...

Warning.. a lot of affordable stuff.. I don't know why? It wasn't on purpose. I guess expensive doesn't always mean better. 



Boots No 7 - Quick Thinking Make-up Wipes.
$7.99 at Target 

I love these. They don't irritate my skin like the Neutrogena ones do.  
While gentle enough, they still remove my make up without effort.
I am buying these again!


Aussie - Catch the Wave Mousse + Leave in Conditioner 
$3...something? At Target.

I love this!!! The hold is "flexible", so it doesn't leave my hair feeling hard and sticky. 
It's easy to just put in my hair and be out the door in time for school and work with my hair looking great.
I only need to use a little, too. 
Total re-purchase as well.



Victoria Secrets PRO Camouflage FX Concealer Palette 
$14.00 at duh.. Victoria Secrets.

I love the light color and the green one.
This pallet is great for everyone because the colors come out sheer but you can build them up.
So, if you have a light complexion it will work for you or if you have a dark complexion or if you get tanner in the summer it will work, too. You won't need to replace it ever to match your skin tone throughout the year.

The formula is thick, which is perfect for covering blemishes. 
They are easy to blend out, too.. if I want lighter coverage.
I use it every single day .
Love. Just love!



American Beauty Limited Edition Blush..I think?
In Rose Shimmer...I don't know how much I paid for this.
It's been sitting in my drawers forever. That sounds bad.
But when I dyed my hair black I needed a hot pink blush to give me a pop of color.
And I remembered how much I used to love this. It gives the perfect glow without looking tacky.



Wet n Wild Color Icon Pallet $2.99 at Target.
I love the eyelid color. I haven't touched the other two.
I have been looking for a color like this all my life.
I just put it all over the lid. 

Anyways, those are my favorites of March. 
I would to know what your favorites are this month!
The next post will be about work. I hope you guys get a chance to read it because I would love to read your opinions.
Love, M <3

OUT: Boyfriend Blazers...Sorry.


Okay. I know people might get mad at me because boyfriend blazers are so in and what not. 
But, seriously. 
I never bought one.
I refuse.
They are :
unflattering
 figure distorting
 shoulder padded 
bulky looking
things!

Just say no!
I know everyone started this craze after Kim K started wearing them.

It's out of control. No one is original anymore. Everyone thinks they can just throw on a blazer and go on to work. Or throw a blazer on a dress and think they are being fashion forward or trendy.

My Goodness. No. 

Now, if you insist on wearing one or have to because you are employed in a professional environment, then buy something form fitting and flattering. And not in black. Try white, navy, or cream colored blazers instead.
Like this: 


Don't hate me, now. 
If I see one more blazer I am going to throw up.
:( 

Sorry, Love M

You are the best thing that ever happened to me...

A little something for your day. 
Ah.
Love this song!
Makes me think of my sweetness.. :)

One out of many presents for the best Auntie in the world! What do you think?!






Hm...I had doubts about this scent.
But I am sure about it now. I know she will love it. 

To save space, I am leaving the box and taking the little bag they give you and I am going to put some make up in it. I think it'll make a great gift! Maybe some glosses, eye shadows, etc.

Sorry, I haven't posted in a while. But work has been crazy!!! Less than 20 hours a week.. my ass. 
This work project is more time consuming than I thought it would be.
We had some set backs and it really pisses me off. 
Sometimes, I worry how I will get done with this before Europe. 
I am going to Europe. 
I don't care.
If I have to quite.
I will.
I can find another job.
Right?
No?
Maybe?
Yes? 
Yes, I can.
Yes, I will.

Aha! So, many posts I want to do. 
So, many things I want to tell you!

oo0o0o0o0o0o... I got an A on my math test!!!!!!!
YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!
:) :) :)

I swear, I looked online and I was thinking the professor made a mistake grading it. 
Maybe she was being extra sweet? I don't know!
I hope not! 
I can't believe I got an A!


Hope everyone has a great start to the week tomorrow.
Mondays....are a bitch.


Love, M

I bought some "Big Sexy", things today! :)


Keratin - one 'n only Brazilian Tech 
Deep Penetrating Conditioning Treatment

I needed this because I dyed my hair and it has become a little dry.
The girl at Sally's told me to leave it in over night.
I shall do so tonight and let you know how it works!

It was $5.99 at Sally's Beauty Supply. 


Curly Sexy Hair - Volumizing and Texturizing Styler 
(Basically a mouse). 
Smells AMAZING!


Silky Sexy Hair Control Creme 
Smells AMAZING too!


Big Sexy Hair Root Pump 

Love it!

Anyways...I got those things today.
I guess today was about hair. 
I am really happy with all my purchases.
The salon I bought this at was out of the straight sexy stuff so I'll have to figure something else out.

Ah... what else do I want to say?... I am stressing out over a math test I have Wednesday.
I am biting my nails and loosing hair...lol anyone good at math? HA!
I don't know what's wrong with me! Everything is so BLAH this week~anyone feel the same?!>!

Love, M <3

New Scent: Burberry Brit Sheer




This scent is the pure definition of me. 
It smells lovely.
It's feminine, yet has that clean and soft smell.
If you test it out, wait 5 minutes for it to settle into your skin. 
I got this gift set at Macy's. I believe it's exclusive to them because I looked online for it and it wasn't there or anywhere.
It was like $85.00 including tax.
I paid for it with my own damn hard earned money..haha.
Anyways, I am saving every drop for Europe, I don't want to uselessly waste it.
I think I might need a smaller bottle for transfer because I am not bringing that whole thing!
Last year, I brought the original Burberry Brit and when I smelled it a lot of memories came running back and it got me emotional. 
Ah..
Does anyone else know what I am talking about? Scents carrying memories? 

Anyways, what's your favorite fragrance? 
Love, M

PS: Sorry, for the crappy pictures. I still don't know how to change the settings back. 
If anyone has a Samsung Dula View Camera let me know! Ugh >:(

Natural Beauty. It's complicated.




I realized today that I don't want to keep on damaging my hair by getting it dyed 3-4 times a year to up keep a hair color  I wasn't born with. 
This is close to my natural color (Soft Black) by Nutrisse. 
It was cheap, fast and easy.
My hair looks amazing...no really it does.
It's a beautiful black and I feel so good about myself right now. 

I keep looking in the mirror and I like what I see. 
I am just going to let it fade out..it won't be as noticeable. 

Natural beauty is so important and it's the one thing that will make you truly love your body, hair, etc.

Last year, I had to learn that lesson the hard way.
I was leaving for a vacation and I wanted to look my best.
So, I went tanning....
I got my hair cut...
& my eyebrows done.

The tanning turned out horrible (spray tan). I have been in sun beds, too before but this was last minute and nothing was open. 
So, I got a spray tan.
Umpa lumpa...
I looked orange and the tanning product dripped down my legs and it stained them..so my feet looked dirty!

I spent hours trying to scrub it off..nothing worked.

I got my hair cut..and it turn out bad!
Layers were all over the place..

I got my eyebrows and the lady did them too thin!

Ugh.... It was horrible!

I realized I didn't even need a tan, hair cut, or my eyebrows done!

I spent most of my vacation explaining why my feet looked like they have been tap dancing in mud.
People asking me where my eyebrows went? I don't know..some place I wish was, too so I wouldn't have to face this shame!

I am going to try my best to keep my natural beauty going...
wear less make-up..
no more hair dying..
tanning...
dressing like what's "in style", but rather just what I like.

Eh...

Anyone have a similar experience?
Lets toast to our natural beauty!
Love, M


I am from Bosnia.



Yes, there is my small beloved home.
In my opinion, the most beautiful place on the Earth.
I cannot breathe in the air enough when I am home.




Anyways, I can't find my own personal pictures on my computer.
If I find them I'll show you. Or I'll just post new ones when I come there in a few months!
I am so excited.
I couldn't find pictures of my home city. 
But it's beautiful, surrounded by mountains. 
The nigh life in the summer time is people walking on closed off streets, going from one club/restaurant to another. 

A favorite of mine was one on the roof, overlooking the town.

I just wanted to share this with you because whenever I think of home it takes all my troubles away.
The stress from work and school and sometimes my homesickness goes away for a few seconds.

I miss home!

Love, M

Offtopic: Series I love right now...& a letter to my co-worker.










What are your favorite shows right now?
Need a show buddy to discuss all the "drama" or quote each other funny lines?
That's me!!!
Love, M
<3

Oh, a little work rant:




Dear Co-Worker,

 I understand when you pronounce my name wrong. 
It's hard. You have to roll your "r's".
What I do not understand is you telling me you don't like my name. 
What I do not understand is you insulting my parents, myself and my home country by asking why my parents would name me that? 
Why did your parents name you, Pam? For crying out loud, they named you after a cooking spray.
What I do not understand is you continuing to speak when I asked you politely to let it go and get over it and just try your best to say my name correctly.
What I do not understand is asking me if you can call me Amy. 
My name is not Amy. It doesn't even sound like Amy. 
I do not understand asking me to come up with a nick name for myself.
I have a name, already. And if you cannot read, pronounce, or even speak correctly then that is not my fault. I have another idea, instead of calling me Amy, or coming up with idiotic nicknames for me, how about you not call me anything at all? Because, I would LOVE to not have to communicate with you as much as you would LOVE not to pronounce my name correctly because of your pure laziness to learn and ignorant behavior. 

Sincerely,

Not Amy.

My BIRCHBOX IS AWESOME!

Patience is a virtue. 
Blow -Thickening Mist 
Befine Night Cream
MyFaceWorks Sheet Mask
Pangea Organics Face Scrub -This is an EXTRA.
Pangea Organics Lip Balm

Ok, so I saw reviews for this months Birchbox and people were complaining about getting 2 tanning sheets and toothpaste.

Well, I didn't (not to sound rude, but I was excited that I didn't get tanning things because you know how I feel about that). I got AWESOME things. That is because when you sign up for Birchbox you are asked to take a survey of your beauty problems/interests.  I checked things like I was not interested in teeth products or tanning things..as far as I can remember. 
There was also a question if you would be okay with receiving packet samples and I checked no.

So, obviously it all depends on the person and what they got. 
Birchbox has been great to me so far.
But if I got stuck with things I felt I could have gotten for free else where or things I wasn't interested in I would be upset too. In todays economy, $10.00 is a LOT OF MONEY. 
I am not cheap by any means..but I am no fool either.

PS: Sorry for the pictures, I think I changed the settings on my camera and I don't know how to use it all that well still! 

I am not affiliated with Birchbox. 
I did not ask or request these particular products.
My box was sent out at the same time everyone else's was.


For those who don't know what Birchbox is or want more information:


I want to try TestTube -New Beauty Next...

I LOVE trying new things out so I don't end up wasting my money. 
Anyways, hope everyone is doing well!
Thank you to everyone who signed up to follow my blog!!!
10 people! Ahh! I know it's not a lot to other people but it is to me!
I really appreciate it!


Love M <3


Innouts: The Bump....

This post is purely based on something I saw today at work.
A girl I work with came back from a leave of absence today and she was rocking the "bump", real hard.
I though she must have been harbinating for the past 2 years and not realized that the "bump", is so damn out. 


NO! 

Please DON'T DO IT!


Much Love M <3
PS: Sorry, for the lack of posts. I know I usually try to come up with something significant at least 2-3 times a week. But this might be a slow week. I had the worst day today, filled with pointless tears and stress. I don't know what's wrong with me. I might loose my lid at any moment. Anyway, I want to post a Spring Haul but I am still waiting for a few things to get here & apparently I forgot to cancel my Birchbox so I guess I will be getting one those, too. I've heard they suck this month. 
<3
