We always stay in for New Years. Anyone else stay home for New Years? What a year it's been! There have been some ups and downs throughout the year; our car majorly messing up, me, my son, and my husband all being in the hospital for different reasons (we're all fine now), but one thing that has been nothing but great for me this past year is this blog! I never thought I would get as many readers as I have! I never thought I would get any comments! This blog has been very good for me! I love reading your blogs and reading comments you leave for me on mine! I truly appreciate everyone that takes the time to read my opinions and leave me a comment!

I look forward to continuing my blog in the New Year as well as reading yours!

I hope you all have a Safe and Happy New Year!

Great Gift Ideas, Stila Smudge Pot Review

We are 6 days away from Christmas! Have you got your shopping done? If you haven't I have some great gift ideas that anyone would love to receive! :-)

1. Urban Decay Show Pony Shadow Box $30
This is really great for someone who likes to use eyeshadows and play up their eyes. It also comes with a 24/7 Eye Pencil in Zero and a mini Eyeshadow Primer Potion (forgot to picture).

2. Stila Smudge Pot Collection Limited Edition $32
I love this! It comes with four Smudge Pots and a mini brush as well. These can be used as a liner like intended or as a base for shadows to really make colors pop. These are long lasting and don't budge. As you can tell I have been using mine A LOT! Smudge Pots are my NEW Favorite liners! Love them! These are smaller than the usual Smudge Pot sizes but you still get a ton of product. They are about the size of a Smashbox Jet Set liner. Includes Kitten, Starry, Violet, and Black.

3. Collector's Edition Fragrance Sampler For Her $75
If your thinking about getting someone a fragrance this is awesome because you can gift them with this. They get to sample all these fragrance minis, then choose which one they like best. It comes with a coupon that can be redeemed for a full size at any Sephora!

4. DiorShow Lash Essentials Set $29
We all love BIG FULL lashes and Dior makes some of the Best mascaras out there. This set is amazing. You get a full size Dior Show Iconic Mascara PLUS Dior Show and Dior Show Blackout mascara minis! This is a great deal! This would be a really nice stocking stuffer! You read that Santa!?! ;-)

5. Tarte Treasure Chest! $52
This is sold out online but you can check your local Sephora store. If they have it in stock grab it! Don't pass it up! This would make an AMAZING gift! Who wouldn't want to open up this Treasure Chest of makeup on Christmas morning! It's loaded with everything you need for eyes, lips, and cheeks!

All items can be purchased at (except the Treasure Chest) and Sephora stores.

My new puppy!

If you follow me on twitter you might have read a few days ago that I got a new puppy!!!

I have two other dogs already but both of them were rescued/adopted so we got them full grown. I've been wanting a puppy for a long time though. The last time I had a puppy I was a kid.

I had been looking for puppies that needed to be adopted. Finally some came up so we went to check them out and see if there was one we were interested in. I really wanted a female because our other two are males.

We ended up finding one we loved!

This is Honey! She is a Dachshund Chihuahua mix. She is about 11 weeks old. She is super cute and sweet. She loves to play! We have quickly learned that she is a chewer! She will chew up whatever she finds; shoes, clothes, toys, anything!

She is laying on my husbands shoulder here. She loves to cuddle up! :-)

We have been having so much fun with her these last few days!

I can't believe Christmas is already 12 days away! Have you all finished your Christmas shopping? Are you last minute shoppers? I usually try to get my Christmas shopping done early. We already bought my son all his presents. I haven't got my husbands yet though so I need to get that done this coming week!

Well I just thought I would share some pictures of our new baby! :D

Tarte Treasure Chest

A few weeks ago Sephora sent out an email with a coupon code for 20% off for VIB Beauty Insiders. I of course had to take advantage of that so I placed an order for some stuff I wanted. One of the things I ordered was the Tarte Treasure Chest. I believe there was a set like this one last year. Well I had just seen this at my Sephora and loved the way it looked but I wasn't able to swatch it because it was encased in glass. I decided to just order it anyways. I am really gald I did because this palette, cube, thing is awesome!

This has everything you need for your eyes, cheeks, and lips! It includes 16 full size shimmer eyeshadows, 16 full size matte eyeshadows, 16 lipglosses, a bronzer, a highlighter, and 4 blushes. There is also a mirror inside. Plus the gems on top of the packaging make it look so cute!

Here are a few random eyeshadow swatches. The first six colors are shimmer, the next six are matte.

As you can probably tell I have been using the eyeshadows a lot. I really love the eyeshadows. They are super pigmented and blend easily. The bronzer, highlighter, and blushes are very nice as well but I haven't used them as much. The lipglosses are all very sheer. I would have liked some more color to the glosses.

This would be great for traveling or make a great Christmas gift. You can create so many different looks with this set. I would definitely recommend this!

Overall I am really glad I ordered the Tarte Treasure Chest. You can find this at Sephora or for $52. The price is a little steep but I think it's worth it for all that you get.

Do you have the Treasure Chest? What do you think of it? Share your thoughts! :-)
