Birthday Wish List

My Birthday is RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!!! My Mom asked me last night while we were at Zumba what was on my list......I hadn't really thought too much about it because I told my husband a few things that I wanted :)  SO, I thought I would make my birthday wish list!!  AND PS...I won't have THAT many candles on my birthday cake, this year!!

It seems like everyone has a crossbody bag...except me.  I'm usually a big purse kind of girl, but I would like a small crossbody bag to have with me when I'm out and about running errands.  The thing i love about Vera Bradley is she gives you SOOO many fabric options!!!  I would LOVE to go to a Vera Bradley outlet store at somepoint in my life, just haven't made it there yet.  So for now, I have to settle with Hallmark :)

My husband has tried to talk me into a nook or a kindle for about a year now, and I've always opposed the idea.  There is just something about HOLDING a book and being able to physically turn the page.  Well...I'm starting to give in!  He supposedly is going to be getting me one for my birthday.  BUT, I want to know-do you own one of these? Pro's?? Cons??

 Giftcard to Forever 21.  I REALLY like this store.  I don't have one in my town, and the majority of my purchases from Forever 21 have come from online.  I have gone into the store a small amount of times, but I really dislike the store.  I get really bad anxiety when I go in there because I am soo overwhelmed with the merchanidse!! It is litterally EVERYWHERE!! I feeel like there is no organization to it.  SO, give me a giftcard and I'll shop online :)

A girl can always use a giftcard to Ulta :)  Again, I don't have an Ulta in my town (I know....we are so deprived here in Q-TOWN!).  The closest one to me is about 1 1/2 hours away. 

 Black workout pants or tight capris!  I HATE wearing shorts to workout in!  ESPECIALLY since my workout is usually Zumba, I like the black pants because they are just like jazz pants and I just think as a dancer these are the best!  Please note, this is NOT me in the picture!! Even if I sucked in my stomach, it still wouln't be that flat and I would have some love handles as well!! LOL

This is the 3rd book (and last I believe) in a series that I started reading.  I bought the first book probably 2 years ago.  Then, when I was Christmas shopping at Border's this past season, they had the second book (hardback) for $6.  At that point, I hadn't even read the first, but couldn't pass up that deal.  SO, I just recently found out there was a 3rd book in the series, so I would really like to get my hands on it.  I ALSO heard it was being made into a movie staring Julia Roberts!  Now, if I am to get the kindle or nook...let's not waste our money buying Laura this book...we'll just purchase it for one of those devices :)  Has anyone else read this series??

A Water Bobble!!! I JUST learned about this!!!! I think it is sooo cool that you have a FILTER inside your water bottle!!! This PINK one is from GNC.  I think I would want the middle sized one...the 18.5 one.  You can also purchase replacement filters.  SOOO, you are stylish, drinking FILTERED water, and being eco-friendly :)  It's a win, win for all!!!
That's all I have on my list!!  I'm perfectly OK with not getting any presents on my birthday (I'm not going to turn them down though LOL).  I'm content with just doing to dinner with friends and family and calling it a night.  PLUS, my birthday is on a Sunday this year, and I start a clinical that very next day.  Anyways-what do you usually do for your birthday??

Would you Rather.....

I saw this post by Elle Fowler on Elle and Blair's discussion forum and thought it would be a fun little activitiy to do!

Leave your answers to the following questions in the comments below:

1.Would you rather walk around all day with you skirt tucked in your underwear or be seen wearing a really see through dress?

Oh my....ummm I'm going to go with skirt tucked into my underwear (and hopefully I'm wearing cute underwear that day!!)

2.Would you rather go to a party and not realize until the end of the night that you have lipstick on your teeth or that your fake lashes are coming unglued?

Ugh...I would really hope that someone at the party would tell me if either one of these was occuring!! I'm going to go with fake lashes coming unglued.
3.Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?

Mascara....going to be way less noticable!!!!

4.Would you rather wear lipstick/lipliner combo or frosty blue eyeshadow?

DUH-lipstick/lipliner combo!
5.Would you rather wear foundation that is two shades too light or go way overboard on bronzer? that is two shades too light.

6.Would you rather drink an entire bottle of ketchup or run into the guy who broke your heart on a bad hair day when your skin is freaking out?

ew to both of these.  I'd go with the guy who broke my heart on a bad hair day when my skin is freaking out. LOL!! I like ketchup, but not that much!!

7.Would you rather be able to date any celeb you wanted or wake up with perfect red carpet-worthy hair?

date any celeb I wanted :)
8.Would you rather your armpits smell musky or like delicious lasagna?

ew-I don't like either one of these options!! I'm going to with deliscious lasagna!

9.Would you rather give up your makeup or cell phone for one year?

Man, these are some hard questions!! I'd choose makeup.... :(

10.Would you rather run into a cute guy you like with food all in your grill or no makeup at all?

No makeup at all!

Top 10 for June

 BareMinerals Matte Foundation in Light
I purchased this the last time I went to Ulta!  I blogged about it an an Ulta Haul Blog Post.  I am LOVING this!!! It goes on SOOO well!!!  You really wouldn't think that a powder foundation would give you so much coverage!  I was IMPRESSED!  What I really like about it is it has a slider thing (you can see it in the picture) that you can turn so it covers the holes so our product does come out all over the place!  GENIUS!! 

 BareMinerals Mineral Veil
I also picked this up the last time I went to Ulta and blogged about it in my Ulta Haul.  I love this product as well!!!'s in my favorites :)  The mineral veil comes in several different 'types' but I just wanted the sheer to be my finishing/setting powder.  This does a great job at giving you the finished look.  It also has that slider thing that rotates to cover the holes.

Victoria's Secret Shampoo-So Sexy Volume
I am sure every hair dresser will cringe when they see this because it isn't one of the name brand shampoo's, but I DON'T CARE :)  I was skeptical about using it, but my friend has used VS hair care products in the past and gives them high reviews.  Well, let me tell you, this is an awesome shampoo!! You do not need a lot of it because it lathers up really well!! It definitely adds volume and body to my hair and added bonus-it smells awesome!  I have the conditioner, but have not started using it yet as I was finishing up a conditioner from Lush.

Crown Brush Blush Palatte
I purchased this off of HauteLook.  It retails for $39.88 and I purchased it for $15!!!  BOOYA!!! This is a GREAT Blush Palatte.  it contains both matte and shimmer blushes.  I use the darker ones for contouring and for a bronzer.  There is a great mix of colors here and they are pretty pigmented! 

 Lemon and Pomegranate Scrube from Bath and Body Works
 I bought this at the JANUARY Semi-Anual sale and just started to use it.  My Bath and Body Works store had it back for the June Sale at 50% off.  I LOVE THIS!! The smell is AWESOME and I'm usually not a big lemon fan!! You don't have to use a lof ot product (bonus) and it has just the right amount of texture to be a scrub...not harsh on my skin AT ALL!

 Crown Brush 28 Neutral EyeShadow Palette.
I also purchased this from HauteLook the same time I purchased the blush palette.  This, also, is a great palette!  I have used just about every color in here since I have gotten it.  This has become my go to eye color.  I work in Physical Therapy and don't really want to do outrageous colors, but I'm also not a person that would do that anyways LOL BUT, this is PERFECT!!!  It retails for $49.88 and I purchased it for maybe $ about that!?!?!

 e.l.f. Concealer Brush
e.l.f. recently had an online promotion that when you spent $20 you would receive their 12 piece brush kit for only $1.20 (normally $12).  I have heard soo many good things about this brand, and it's priced really low!  SO, I figured this would be a good chance to try some stuff out.  I haven't used all of the brushes yet (they are waiting as backups), but this brush is great!! I use it for my undereye concealer!  Who knew a brush could do something so wonderful haha

 Andis Flat Iron-purchased at Shop-Ko SEVERAL years ago
Weird that something I have had for so long can be a favorite! I use a flat iron pretty much every day.  BUT thanks to JuicyStar07 on YouTube, I can now use this to CURL my hair!!!  The curls last MUCH longer than they do with a regular curling iron.  I HIGHLY recommend curling your hair with your flat iron, BUT you have to make sure your flat iron heats up on the outside.  Click HERE for JuicyStar07's tutorial on how to curl your hair using the flat iron!

 Joico Root Booster-purchased at Ulta
I had been using Big Sexy Hair Rootbooster, but I wanted to find something that was a little bit cheaper....umm Joica was maybe like $2 cheaper....FAIL LOL anyways-I really like this Root Booster MUCH BETTER than the Big Sexy Hair booster.  The BSH left a bit of a residue in my hair and I felt like it didn't give me much of a boost.  The Joico smells phenomenal and it definitely gives me the boost AND it lasts throughout the day!!!  I MIGHT see if I can still find something a little bit cheaper (this was probably $17ish), but if not, I would definitely buy the Joico again!

BeautiControl Secret Agent Foundation in P3
I recently did a review on this foundation, you can read it HERE.  Now, since I have been using the BareMinerals foundation, I don't use the BC foundation every day.  This is my 'special' foundation.  I use this whenever I have a wedding to go to, or going out on the town, or something else along those lines.  I'm not sure why I use this for those occasions over the BareMinerals, I just do :)
