VSCO Photo App and Review

It's been a while I know, but here I am to review a new favorite app of mine. Its called VSCO (Visual Supply Co) It's a photo editing app that allows you to add various filters. Its pretty simple, and best of all its free. I've actually had the app for a long time but after Bron from teatimewiththemadartist.com used it in various pictures on her instagram, I opened it up and started loving it all over again

Eco Tools Skin Perfecting Brushes

No I am not turning this blog into a makeup/beauty blog, I just happened to get my hands on some good stuff within the last month or so :) I recently picked up these new brushes from Eco Tools. I love Eco Tools brushes, I have a few of them and they haven't done me wrong yet! They're made from recyclable materials, and don't test on animals. 

The white bristles from these 2 brushes caught my eye. They are the skin perfecting brushes for BB/CC creams and for eye primer, but I will most likely use it for concealer. Here are pictures of the brushes and some info about them on the packaging.

Maybelline Lip Products and Swatches

I really do love a good nude lip color. So when Maybelline released The Buffs lipsticks I had to have them. I have no clue how long they have been out, but was glad I was able to snag 4 of them

I also picked up 2 of the Maybelline Elixir glosses to pair with these lipsticks. Loving them so far just from the swatches. Click read more for pictures and swatches

"You're either with me or you're not..."

I made myself a goal this year to be more honest with myself, and on this blog. I also made a goal to let go of negative situations and people. This is still the beginning of 2014 so I'll see how this year ends up.

I follow missjia on twitter as well as her personal blog shesofly.com and she had a post that basically says that people will hit her up all the time to promote things and she will oblige, but when she needs help friends are nowhere to be found. Which brings me to this post I'm writing.

I've found myself in numerous situations where people have come to me because they have needed something, and then I don't hear from them for while. The minute I need help or advice, they're nowhere to be found. Well now that I am 30 and pretty damn grown, I've decided that I have had enough! You're either with me (all of the time) or not with me (at all)

I don't like people who only want to be "bothered" with you when its convenient for them, and no other reason. If you only want to come to me because it benefits you, please don't come to me at all. Id rather not have you in my life, than only in it sometime.

With that said have you ever had someone come to you only for convenience? Or only come to you when it benefits them?

The Bluffs

The Bluffs is a walking trial here and its so beautiful to walk and run on. I took my camera to get some shots because I was feeling a little inspired so here they are.
