I’M BACK FROM THE DEAD Y’ALL

Hey everyone!! So I’m super sorry I had to take a break from blogging and YouTube! I started taking on more responsibility at work and even got a raise 🙂 but that also means I’ve been super busy lately 😦

Anywho, so tomorrow is Lent and this is the first year I’m actually going to try to participate. I’ve decided (last minute as always) that I’m going to 1) try to connect with God more and get more into my religion than i have been in the past and 2) try to stop worrying about everyone else in my life and be more positive. By that I mean, I’m going to stop judging people and just let them live their lives. This mainly pertains to a few people in my life but still, I need to get rid of all of this negativity! (I’m not saying I judge everyone or anything- For example, this one person does a lot of bad things and makes bad choices and I mentally criticise that person almost everyday. Which I know is bad and I definitely shouldn’t do that and everyone has their flaws(especially me) so I’m trying to work on mine:D )

So with that being said, I’m going to try to post more ( like daily) and I might even start posting a review of my daily devotions. SO, starting tomorrow, I’m going to be more positive, “stay in my lane”, and try to reconnect with God again.♥

I’d love for y’all to follow me on my journey for 40 days and help me stay accountable!

Countdown to V~DAY: Day 2 Bomb af Eyeshadow

<<Plz ignore my dollar store foundation and scary eyebrow>>
Today, I’m sharing a makeup look (yes omg I know) that I created for Valentines day. Even though I’ll be stuck at work all day, I’m still going to be rocking my V day Lula Roe’s and this bomb look.  (REAL QUICK– Go follow my blog Instagram @itsme.amieg tysm!♥)

I created this look using the Ulta Rose Gold Palette (You can get it here http://bit.ly/2ida9s0 for $20). ||Obvi, you don’t have to use this exact palette||


So I pretty much used every shade in the palette *oops* but you’re more than welcome to customize it and make it your own!♥
Any whoo, I started out by priming my eyelids with Trust Fund Beauty’s primer just to give my shadow something t stick to. First I used a fluffy blending brush and the shade “Prosecco” and applied that all over my lid. Then I used a smaller blending brush and applied the shade “Breathless” to my crease and outer corner. With this shade, you can’t really add too much so you don’t have to be as precise. Next, I used my crease brush and mixed the shades “Dessert”, “Luxe”, and “Orchid” and applied everywhere I applied “Breathless”. **The pic says Sweetheart but I meant Orchid oopss** Lastly, I took a flat angled brush and the shade “Dahlia” and applied a small amount to my outer corner and absolute inside of my outer portion of my crease. Be sure to go easy with this shade since it’s so dark.

After that, I applied my Ulta liquid liner and then went back in with “Dahlia” on the smallest brush I own to smoke out my lower lash line.

Lastly, I applied my Model Co mascara and used my Sinkdinavia Setting Spray to finish off the look!

That is pretty much the look! I just did basic foundation, contour, and highlight (a list of products I used for everything else will be at the bottom of the post).

 

Other products I used:

  • elf foundation stick in “Nude”
  • JS Skin Frost in “SO Fu**ing Gold”
  • Nyx Contour Stick
  • Ulta Beauty’s Nude Face Primer
  • elf brow kit in “Light/Medium”
  • it Cosmetics Brow Pencil
  • inspir Concealer stick

Count Down to V~DAY: Day 1 Nails On Fleek

I’ve decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day a little more this year by doing a count down where I post EVERYDAY for 5 days straight until the big day!     Anyway, today I’m going to be sharing a few of my favorite nail designs for Valentine’s Day!

 

The first one is super simple! All you need is a pink nail polish and and a glitter nail polish of your choice!

Th next one is a little more tricky- You’re going to need a white nail polish, red nail polish, and either a booby pin or a toothpick. Paint all of your nails red except one, paint that one white. Once everything dries, take the bobby pin or toothpick and use it to make a red heart on the white nail.

The last one is my FAVE♥

vday-nails-6

This Scrabble inspired nail art is so easy and classy!!
You just need a beige or brown polish, a black polish, and a doter tool or toothpick.

First paint a base coat and then use the tool of your choice to write out the letters along with a small number in the lower left corner and that’s all!

 

I hope you enjoyed this! I’m super excited to do this countdown- It’s going to be super fun ya’ll ☺

Ways 2 Save; A new series??

Okay so I was thinking about starting ANOTHER blog for all the tips and tricks I’ve learned about saving money BUT I decided to just try out making it a series on here since I’ve only been blogging for a month (YES, it will be a month tomorrow omg I know!!!!!). I’ve still got a long way to go to build up this blog so I don’t think I have the time to build up another  one at the same time SO without further-a-do here’s my new (potential) blog series!

Okay so today I’m going to share a few of my ways to save money in everyday life!

  1. COUPON- this is probably one of the most popular way to save. I’m starting to dabble in coupon-ing and I’ve actually saved a pretty penny so far! (Tell me in the comments below if you’d like a post all about coupon-ing and how to!)
  2. SHOP AT A DISCOUNT/CLUB STORE – I’ve recently started doing majority of my shopping at Sams Club and Aldi (no, you cannot coupon there): ) and I’ve cut my weekly grocery bill down from $130 to about $70.
  3. STOP EATING OUT- This was so hard for me; I literally only eat 2 meals a day and I went from BOTH being fast food to BOTH being a meal I cooked and preped the Sunday before. I used to spend around $600 a MONTH on food now I spend less than $300. 

Sorry it’s so short but I wanted to get it up today instead of tomorrow! Tell me what you think in the comments and if I should make this a real thing!
