Lip Gloss Break: Merry Christmas All!

To those who celebrate Christmas I wish you all a Merry Christmas. I know I got a couple of gifts, I wanted and one not so much. But like always we smile and say thank you then hit the stores and exchange it for something else we want. Thank god for me that my gift was from Macy's so I am going to exchange it to get some MAC. They are coming out with the Warm and Cozy Collection tomorrow therefore, I am getting some goodies!

I will edit this later to post pictures of what I got. You can tell me what you guys got in the comments below :D

Girl Talk: In's and Out's Decemember Edition

It's almost the of Decemember and here are my in's and out's of the current moment. I tag you all to do it. :D


Hot chocolate with mini marshmellow's: Need I say more? What better way to keep all nice and toasty than to sip a nice hot cup of hot cocoa. I perfer to go to Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks. However, the hot chocolate in Starbucks is more bitter than any other place I try but I like it.

Dark vampy nails:It's the cold weather, this season it's all about the dark colors. I am wearing All A-Bordeadaux The Sled. Reminds me of a blood red vampy wine color. Another favorite of mine that it seems everyone seems to love as well is Linclon Park After Dark. That blacken purple color is super sexy. To me it says " I am not goth but I love wearing uber sexy dark colors" ;). Both of these are from OPI and I am 98% positive you can find these two nail polishes at any place they sale nail polishes. Need a suggested? Ask away!

High heels:I never been a fan of heels. I used to wear at most 1 inch heels. Sadly, with a size 10 feet shopping for some cute low heels was difficult. So I was at Macy's and I had a friends and family 25% off coupon, I went the clearance rack of shoes. Everything was ugly, but just as I was going to give up I found hidden in the show rack a pair of georgous heels. Now I am not going to lie they were high heels like about 4 or 5 inches. My wow was like "your crazy" but I tried them on anyways. It was love at first walk. I love how they made me feel and laugh all you want, I looked at my feet and said "wow my feet look sexy in heels". I kid you not these Carlos Santana Inspired heels were beautiful. Orginally they were $70 but with the 30% clearance and the 25% friends and family discount these puppies came out to be $25. What a steal! I am hooked on heels! I can't wait to buy more.

The holiday season:Red, Greens and Golds. How pretty, it truly is the most wonderful time of the year. All the pretty lights, the sales, spending time in harmony with the family and yummy festive food. One thing is missing for sure the snow. Living in Miami I won't ever have a white chirstmas. Maybe one day? A girl can only dream...


The cold weather:Call me a living pardox, it is freezing here. Well ok living in Miami where it is 80+ all year around we barely have cold weather. Don't get me wrong a nice chilly night that all you need is a light jacket is nice but anything colder is hell. It is currently 65 degrees and I am freezing. I don't think I can live up North I would instantly become an Ivy-isicle. I know people up North are probably freezing with 20s and below and the 20in snow storms but I am warm blooded from Miami, it is cold here since we are used to 99 degree weather. Sue me.

Long lines and crazy people:Of course the mall is a great place to be with all the sales and opening up to 12am, however, the actual customers are not so fun. People are crazy this time of year and it is like hello people chill. You can get want/need to get in a clam friendly matter no need to bite, sheesh.

Well that's all for now! What are you In's and Out's? Post them in the comments below. Byeness xoxoIvy

Woot I finally found a name to use!

*Insert serious AA tone* Hi my name is Ivy and I am a cosmetic junkie. *giggles* I am a simple every day girl next door type of girl. I have a make up addiction. Particularly lipglosses and lipsticks. I own so many drug store ones and I am starting to grow my high end collection as well. I plan to write reviews, talk about my favorite products and just have a good time. ^^

I love to write stories, . I am going to start posting my stories on my blog for some feedback. I want to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly. It will only make my writing better. At least that is how I see things. I hope to one day publish my own book. About what? I do not know maybe ya'll will help me figure that out.

So a little more about me. I am a freshman in college. I am planning to study to become a physical therapist and on the side I am a freelance make up artist.
