Ugh! hurting!!

I just had a Root canal done.. I am soooooooooooooooooo upset and disappointed on myself. If I would've gone to the dentist earlier, I would've had a different story. But it is to late for that. I had it done and even though I had local anesthesia it hurt!!! not at all the time, but in some occasions and it was awful. I tried to eat earlier on that side and now I feel that area beating, like when you feel your heart beating.. yup.. like that!

Not fun. I took half of a Percocet. I had these from my last Thyroid Surgery so I am hoping to sleep like a baby tonight lol. I've been told that I'm gonna be with a little pain for a few days so I am not looking forward to that :-(

I can't wait for this!

Etsy it's such a great place to find some awesome and unique things. I was looking for a pair of very long feather earrings. Mine are long but there are others longer but more expensive so for now I got this gorgeous pair. I love peacock feathers so..:-D

Melon and Violet!

These have been of my wishlist for a while and being patient is really worth it. I am in Orlando right now and there are 2 CCO's available. I went to one one of them since I heard at Specktra that they got new stuff at the one located at Primer Outlets. I went there, started looking around and I was happy to see Melon and Violet in the old jars for $13.75 a piece! I did not think it twice and bought them. I can not wait to use them. I've seen so many FOTD's featuring these 2 and they are just beautiful colors to have in my opinion.

How are guys doing? Tomorrow is my 7th wedding anniversary!! So excited and surprised lol.. it does not feel like it's been 7 years :-)

CVS oil free eye make up remover (Neutrogena dupe)

Hello guys!
I just wanted to share with you  this product that I am really loving. I used to use Clinique's Take the day off  which I love, but I was not loving the price tag lol. I started looking around on the internet and even on you tube and I saw lots of people raving about the Neutrogena oil free make up remover.

I went to CVS a while ago and I when I was about to pick the Neutrogena bottle, I noticed that CVS have a dupe formula. I read the ingredients and the CVS had the same ones as the Neutrogena. Since the CVS bottle was cheaper ( $5.99 on sale) I ended up buying it.

I've been using the product for like  month and a half and I love it!
It feels the same as the Clinique Take the day off. It does not feel heavy on the eyes and I love that you can just dab the product and the make up comes right off.

I think this remover is a great product with a great price tag! I highly recommend it :-)

A splash of orange!

Hello lovelies!
Hope you guys are having a great week. I am  having a busy one. I am working on some custom birthday invites and also I've been going to the hospital everyday for a series of routine exams. Once or twice a year I need to get checked out because of my cancer history. So I can't wait this week to end because I've been also on a low iodine diet which sucks! I can not eat out of the house, pretty much I have to cook everything from scratch using my no iodine salt and spices.. anyways.. let me stop with the boring stuff lol.. I'm good and today I felt like using orange. It is a color I do not use often and this is what I came up with.. Please ignore the brows, I've been growing them out since last time I did not like how the lady did them. not going to her for sure!

Estee Lauder beauty advisor!

I got hired! and I'm super excited. I start training on Tuesday. I really do not use or own anything from the brand so I've been studying their website so I can get familiar with the products. I'm a little nervous about the selling goals part, but hopefully I am going to do great! lol

I need your recommendation!

Hi again!

I've always struggled with an oily face but also an oily scalp! I know, I'm cursed! lol
Nah, but I mean it is such a pain. If I wash my hair on Monday night, Tuesday night I need to wash it again
if I want my hair to look pretty on Wednesday. If I don't do this, my hair looks all oily and that does not look very good.. and I do not like putting my hair in a bun which can help in camouflaging the situation.

Do you guys know about a good shampoo for oily scalp or a good dry shampoo?
I've been using Lush Rehab with the Veganese conditioner. I love how my hair looks and feel but Ihave the feeling that something in one of them or both is making it worse? not sure..
I really do not want to expose my hair so often to heat  and even now that is getting longer. I want it to look healthy.

Thanks in advance!

Featheary Headband

I love headbands!!!! and today I picked this one up at Forever21. It is black, braided, and it has charms and black feathers.. I'm loving it so much. I also found such unique ones at They are a bit more expensive but then again I love handmade things. They have such a unique feel :-)

Show Orchid!

Sorry for the quality! I took these with my cell phone cam
I got Show Orchid at my closest CCO a few weeks ago.
Loving this color!
On my eyes I just have Samoa Silk all over the lid and a highlight
that I can't remember :-(

Sigma Brushes!

I've seen these Sigma brushes all around You Tube and I am pretty sure that you guys have too. For the ones that do not know, Sigma is a company that started selling brushes ( now they sell make up too) comparable to MAC quality. They actually numbered their brushes with the same numbers as MAC. This has been a controversy. Theres people that do not mind about it and others that feel the opposite. I've been working in my kit because I want to freelance on my own so I've been buying little by little different things. I needed more brushes and even though I love MAC ones, right now I can not afford in buying them. In the future I would love  to have some of them.

Since I needed a good quality brush set and I've heard soo many good reviews about these brushes, I put the controversy aside and decided to buy them.

The presentation it's great! They come in a fabric black pouch and it looks just adorable. When I got the brush roll out ( I decided to pay a little more to get it) I was surprised with how good it is made. Very sturdy and looks very well done. When you open it there is a flap that says Sigma. You lift it up and you can see the brushes. They came very nicely packed. Some people mentioned in a forum that they smell funny. I noticed a slighlty smell but nothing shocking. I washed them so I am waiting for them to dry to see if it goes away. At the forum at they said the smell goes away. Here are some pics!



They are super soft!! so that is a good sign. I tried to compare some of the brushes with the MAC ones I have and I have to  say that the Sigma 224 is not the same as the MAC one. Sigma's is a little bit more dense and a little bit smaller. MAC one is more fluffy and bigger, however I am excited to try it and see how it performs.

As a gift I got a travel size 217 and comparing it to the MAC one, Sigma's is more fluffy, less dense.

Sigma's 239 is very different from MAC's 239 also. The MAC one, the bristles feel very dense and tight and Sigma's 239 is a little bit more fluffy and wider.

I can't wait tomorrow to do my make up! So I will update you guys on the other brushes later on.
This kit comes with 12 brushes:
SS 224
Retails for 69$ plus tax without the brush roll
or $89 plus tax with the brush roll

Shipping was super fast! 3 days!!! I think this is a great deal if you are looking for good quality brushes but with a cheaper price tag :-)
but like I said, I will share my feelings on them after I use them.

See ya! hope you guys are having a great weekend!

Ardell Demis!

Today I went to Ulta to finally buy my UDPP! I tried using other products an this is def my HG primer.

I've been experiencing creasing using the Pandora's primer  and the NYX pencil. I've been trying different ways to apply it but it was not working.
Today after like month and half without UDDP, I did my make up and when I came back home I was thrilled to see that my eye make up was intact! So no more tries for me. This is it. Also I bought a pair of the Ardell demis and they are gorgeous!!! I put them on and I did one eye better than the other.. again... so I gotta keep practicing because I wanna feature them on my next fotd lol..

that I have a blog sale going on! There is a link in the side bar :-)

I'm very excited to share with you guys that I recently discovered a new store in one of my closest malls and  they are selling NYX and they have everything!! I don't remember the name of the store though lol

I've been buying NYX at Ulta but what they have it's so limited and they don't restock as often so when I saw the huge wall full of NYX at that store my jaw just dropped! lol.. looking forward to go at some point and buy some goodies :-)

This store is located in Fort Lauderdale @ Westfield mall. It used to be called Broward Mall :-)
 The store is located close to the Food Court.


21 months later..

When I was 6 months pregnant, I went with my husband for a photo shoot at River Front, Las Olas.
Six months after having the baby we decided to go to the same place, wearing the same dress, and take new pics.. My son is now 21 months.. and once again we wanted to do the same thing, so glad we did!..
As I was looking at all the pictures today.. it's kind of nice to see the progression.. how I've changed and how he has changed. I love you Joao!!

Just wanted to share this non.make up post with you guys!
