Sorry I haven’t been posting as much as I would like, but this semester I started graduate school and it has been exhausting. This whole semester I’ve just been thinking everyday “WHY DID I DO THIS?”. I know that in the end having my master’s degree will be a great benefit for my career, but I have been going to school non-stop and I feel like i’m at the point where I’m just done and I want to work. There’s so much more to life than having to worry about taking tests and studying every single day. Before I use to think school was so important, but don’t get me wrong school is important, but if you already have a degree than you should be fine. Everyday I do homework hours at a time and I always think that there is so much more stuff that I could be doing with my time. Life is meant to be lived, its not meant to sit in a room with your face in a book. Not only is school exhausting, but its also so difficult too. I’m getting to the point where I feel hopeless and lost.
I know these aren’t usually the typically things I post about, but I wanted to take some time and just went out my stress. Does anyone out there going through the same thing that I am going through? If you are I would love to hear how you are getting through this. Well I would write more, but I have a group meeting for school. This group sucks BTW. LOL.
Thanks for taking the time to read this post.
Recently I received the deans list vox box from influenster. If you haven’t heard of Influenster it’s this great program where you get a box full of different products to try out for FREE!!! Ya for FREE!. Then all you have to do is review the products. In this current box I received air heads bites, sinful color nailpolish, covergirl foundation, softlips lipcube, playtex sport tampons, pentel erasable pens, and kiss eyelashes. I haven’t gotten to try all of the products yet. Only the airheads and the covergirl makeup. The airheads were pretty good. They come with all of the flavors even though I only Like 2 of them. Ive only worn the covergirl foundation for a few hours so I still have to test out if it’s long lasting. Overall this was a really Good box to receive.
Have you ever wanted to try the Ciate caviar nails trend, but never wanted to pay for it? Well I’m right there with you. I love all of the latest beauty trends, but they can get so expensive. Every time I go to Sephora, I always see the Ciate caviar nail packages and they always look so cute that I want to get. Until I look at the price. $30 for some nail polish and beads? Ya I don’t think so. I rather spend $30 on some good foundation. Well this weekend I was browsing at my local Burlington Coat Factory. Usually I never find anything good there because its all so cluttered and a part of me doesn’t want to waste time searching for something that I know I won’t find. Luckily when I was looking in their beauty section I came across a Ciate nail kit and it was only $10. $10!!! can you believe that? A good bottle of essie polish costs around $8 already so I figured it was a good deal and I couldn’t pass it up. So I bought the kit. It came with 4 cute nail polish colors and 4 bottles of beads that would match the polish and a little funnel to pour the excess beads into the bottle.
The polish colors that came in the kit weren’t that great. It has your standard white, pink, baby blue, and red. Being the nail polish love that I am, I already own these colors. But then again I wasn’t buying the kit for the polish, I was all in it for the beads. So of course after me buying this kit, I had to try it out on my nails. And to be honest. It looked great on my nails for about a day…….
The polish had a nice consistency to it, but you did have to do a couple of coats to get the color looking nice. And of course after my nails dried I have to put on my favorite seche vite top coat. The top coat made my nails look amazing. It gave my nails a gel/shellac manicure look. I don’t know what it is that I do in my everyday life, but the beads fell off so quick. I probably have random little beads around my house somewhere now. The instructions say for you to paint your nail and then pour the beads on so that it will stick and that worked and all, but it just didn’t last. I wasn’t sure if I should use a top-coat on the beads or not, so I didn’t. Maybe when I try it next time I will put a top-coat on and see how much longer the beads will last on my nails. All-in-all, there were some pros and cons to this product. The pros were that it was a good price and the colors were fairly decent. The cons are that the beads didn’t last on my nails that long, it can get messy because they do put glitter in with the beads. When I was pouring some beads onto my nail, a whole bunch of glitter came pouring out with hardly any beads. Luckily you really couldn’t tell the difference from the glitter to the beads.
Overall I’m glad I bought this product and gave it a try. However, I think next time I will try using a top coat or maybe even some gel to get the beads to stay longer because you have to admit my nails did look amazing for that one day. lol.
Welcome to my page! I have always wanted to blog about fashion, makeup, and pretty much the daily life of a girl. Hopefully I can provide some good advice and insight on what I have been through in life. My goal is to at least blog once a week. So please keep checking back. xoxo
