Katy Perry's Eyelash Line


With the number of hair color changes she’s made lately, Katy Perry could practically create her own line of dyes. But the “California Gurl” has different plans: on the tail of her second fragrance release, the singer is launching a line of false lashes, Katy Perry by Eylure.
“I have worn Eylure lashes all the way through my tour and really loved them,” Perry says in a statement. “When it came to having a range of my own, I wanted everyone to have a great experience with my lashes. Eylure was really the best choice for me to work with.”
According to a release, Perry was quite hands-on in the development of the lashes, as well as the packaging, which features a ’40s-style ice cream parlor logo, in keeping with the sweet theme of her California Dreams tour.
The four lash varieties include “Sweetie Pie,” dainty, natural lashes; “Oh, Honey,” a fuller set; “Cool Kitty,” shorter and suitable for daytime; and “Oh, My,” bold, attention-grabbing lashes. “This style is full of texture, but lightweight and very wearable,” Perry says of the latter, based on Eylure’s double lashes. “The perfect accessory for your eyes.”
Perry’s lashes hit ULTA stores and ulta.com in February, and retail for $6.99 per set.

Bunny Nails 1st Giveaway

Nails

I love manicures and pedicures... there are so many new looks to try all the time and you can do animal prints and cute little artsy stuff. Prints and designs have been the trend for awhile now. Sally Hansen: Salon Effect Nail Polish Strips are truly the best. They come in a variety of prints and designs and they last for quite sometime. 

I try to do my nails as frequently as possible because I'm such a girly girl and I love feeling feminine. Here are a few of my manicure looks:



This color I did for Halloween and my daughter got a manicure done as well. I chose Onyx by O.P.I. I just wanted a simple black because I was a bumble bee. Nothing outrageous.

 This look I thought would be really cute and it's just O.P.I. Funny Bunny with just black polka dots over it.



 This look I did for my birthday last year and it's by Katy Perry's O.P.I. collection "The One That Got Away"


 This one is just a regular French manicure. I love it because it's classic and it makes you look super sexy.


 This look is "Golded" by MAC with a black and silver design on two nails.


I adore Essie polishes and this is from the Summer 2011 collection, it's called "Braziliant".



 I love this color and it's by O.P.I. for Sephora. From the Glee Collection, it is called, "Miss Bossy Pants."


 I did this color on Dec. 31, 2011 and I thought it was the perfect color for New Years.. it's by Nicole O.P.I. and it is called, "Party in the Penthouse" from the Gossip Girl Collection. I love it.


Lemon Water (Why You Should Drink It)


Lemon and water are a match made in heaven... I’ve started drinking it every day and feel more energized than ever. After learning about the slew of health benefits associated with drinking water and freshly squeezed lemon juice, I decided to make it a part of my daily diet. Lemons are packed with natural vitamins and minerals that are key to your inner and outer beauty regime as well as your general health.

Here are three reasons why you should pair hot water with lemons ladies:
  1. It’s a natural energizer! It hydrates and oxygenates the body so it feels revitalized and refreshed.
  2. It’s cleansing. According to NaturalNews.com, the citric acid in lemons helps maximize enzyme function, which stimulates the liver and aids in detoxification.
  3. It aids in digestion. Not only will this killer combination relive indigestion, it will also help flush you out.

Makeup & Things

Since I can't seem to fall asleep I guess the best thing for me to do is blog. I'm addicted to makeup, cooking, fashion and collecting things. I collect different things like shoes, handbags, Tokidoki stuff, Hello Kitty stuff, makeup and nail polish.

My favorite makeup brands include MAC, Urban Decay, Smashbox, Tarte and Benefit. I simply adore when MAC collaborates with different companies. Hello Kitty for MAC is one of my favorites and Disney's Venomous Villains Collection which I have a picture of in this post. MAC always reinvents themselves and brings something fresh and new every time. Their delivery and execution of each look is phenomenal.

Urban Decay is always delivering as well, their makeup palettes and nail polishes are always funky and fierce. The Naked & Naked2 palettes are extremely popular and I see why. The neutrals are subtle yet sexy for a day at work or night on the town.

Later I will post pictures of my favorite palettes and give reviews.

Ciao for now!

New Year, New Findings

Wow, I can't believe the year is 2012 and I feel like 2011 went by after just a few blinks. Time is just flying by and I think this year I need to be more productive. So with that said, I found a few tips and things that every woman should know.

First, a new study presented at the 2011 CTRC-AACR San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, shows that consumption of starchy foods is linked with an increased risk of low-grade breast cancer tumors coming back in women who have already had breast cancer before.

Unbelievable! So women who've already had breast cancer and eat starchy foods are more susceptible to the disease again. I swear it's like you can't eat or do anything anymore because it causes cancer.

 Sleep Deprivation:
Another article that I found really interesting is about sleep deprivation. Adults should be getting between 7 and 9 hours a sleep per night and studies show that we fall short. I know that if I get between 7-9 hrs per night I'm lucky because most of the time I have insomnia. Sleep deprivation is considered more serious now and it can cause more serious, long-term health problems (i.e. diabetes, obesity).
