Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm:  I finally ordered this and I don’t want to give too much away since I will be posting a full review soon, but let’s just say I think this might be “The One.”  It’s so worth the price tag.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural:  I know I’m not the first and I will not be the last to fall in love with this.  It is simply just a great powder.  It provides good coverage without feeling too heavy or appearing chalky.  It can be worn alone or as a finishing powder. (In case you were curious I have this in Light Plus.)

China Glaze Deviantly Daring:  My mom sent me this recently and I can’t say enough about how great it is.  I love the color and the formula was seriously impressive.  Usually I find duo-chromes can be a little tricky to work since they can show major brush strokes.  However, that was not the case with this at all.

Models Own Dancing Queen:  I got the entire Mirrorball collection that this is from and not only was this the first one I used but it is also one of my first Models Own polish as well.  All I can say is wowie!  These are absolutely gorgeous and just fun.  If you are a glitter fan than be sure to pick this up along with the rest of the collection.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Precious:  Another goodie from mom and quite possibly my favorite of the Kissable Balm Stains that I have so far.  It’s the most subtle of all the colors available but I find it gives a nice complementary flush of color.

Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes Shampoo:  When I ran out of my Tigi Dumb Blonde shampoo I thought I would give this a try.  It’s intended for actual blondes but my hair is bleached and since I slather purple over it I thought that perhaps this would help extend my color, which it has.  For those of you with color treated tresses, whether it’s full on blonde, highlights or ombré then this is a must to combat the brassiness that most of us inevitably plagued by.  Just use this one to two times a week or as needed and be sure not to leave it on your hair too long.  Zoella mentioned this in her August favorites and you can see that video by clicking here.  I will of course do a thorough review on this as well.

A England Saint George:  If you saw the review I posted on Saint George earlier this week then you already know why I have included this.  For those of you who haven’t read the review, just look at the swatches and you’ll see why.  I adore A England.

Converse All-Star Black Monochrome High Top Chuck Taylors:  A friend of mine brought these back from the States for me ages ago, but I’ve not been able to wear them until very recently thanks to my foot problems that flared up again earlier in the year.  Well I’m glad to say the feet have improved ten fold from where they were even three months ago.  So I can finally get back in my Chucks (I have a small collection).  I am loving the black monochrome and I wear them with pretty well everything.  I will even be wearing these with my crazy Halloween costume.

War Brides by Helen Bryan:  I started reading this and the first night I could not put it down.  In fact I ended up staying up much later than I would like to admit.  I’m just over half way through at the moment but I can definitely say it is really good.  I’ve already recommended it to quite a few people.  I think I might just have to do a full review on this one.  If you’re interested in reading a great work of fiction that focuses of the lives of some rather interesting and endearing women as they navigate their way through the daily struggles of life during WWII, then be sure to give this a read.  You can read a synopsis and reviews here.

Pixlr-o-matic for Android:  I’ve been using this for a few months now and I really like being able to add different filters, effects, and borders to my pictures.  I think it’s super easy to use, has tons of options and best of all it’s free through Google Play.

Twitter:  I’ve had my account for a while but just really started utilizing it in the past month and a half or so.  Now I’m addicted.  Last week I was telling Captain Canada that I think I’m starting to find Twitter more interesting than Facebook.  Don’t get me wrong I still love Facebook and it has it’s place, but Twitter just offers a somewhat different type of interaction as far as I’m concerned.  I especially recommend you sign up if you’re a fellow blogger as it is a great way to network and to keep track of and updated on all the companies we all love for instance.

Giveaway Alert!  One of my lovely fellow bloggers are hosting a giveaway on her site that ends tomorrow.  So head on over to Product Hoochie and enter right away!  Unless of course you have an aversion to wonderful cosmetics, then by all means skip it.  As always, thanks for reading and check back soon.
