Depotting my MAC Angel

I got the idea from K. Lo (

I was so sad the day I lost my MAC Angel, I was even sadder the day I reordered it and broke it 2 days later :( I had almost given up until I came across Katrina's blog post!

First here are the supplies you'll need:
1) Lippie
2) Pot (I got mines from MAC, I asked a MAC MUA for one and she handed it over graciously (of course after I made a large purchase from her, lol)
3) Tool to scoop out the goods from the bottom.
4) Tool to cut off the lipstick from top (I used the same tool for both purposes)
5) Microwave

Here are the materials =)

Cut off the top and then scoop the rest out

Throw in microwave for 1 minute

I let it cool on it's own.
Ta-da!!! Saved lippie :) Anyone else do this before?

I bday was a month ago!

Hello my lovelies, just got back from shopping @ Leesburg Premium Outlets and Tysons Corner Mall, oh my gosh, talk about packed!!! Haul to come later!

Anyways, I know it's uber late, but here's a short recap of my bday last month :)
Here are a few pics from my bday night with some of my closest friends and my best friend, my husband.
Hair: Conair foam rollers and Tresseme 24 Hr Hair Spray (curls fell so quickly, it was raining on our way to the club! ughhhh)
Makeup: Don't remember all of it, I know I'm wearing a favorite lippie, Rimmel 006 Pink Blush/Champagne & I'm wearing a few different ELF Mineral eyeshadows (one of which is Socialite, loooove) (which so far are a million times better than the ELF Studio one's I just received, grrr, reviews coming!)
Dress: Bebe (1st Bday gift)
Tights: Jessica Simpson
Shoes: Jessica Simpson (so not intentional to match designers)
Necklace (stuck in my boob section, grrrr): Saks Fifth Avenue

I know this is a mortal enlarged pores! But it's the best eyeshadow shot I have =/ and yes, I have eyelashes the refuse to curl UP, I've used everything, and I mean everything to get em to stand up!! :-P
All in all, it was a great evening considering it was raining!! Last year George got us a table at a club, I opted out this year, don't know why, I wasn't in the mood, we may do it next year :)
The next day George had a surprise for me, tehehe, I was quite hungover...this is why I hate drinking on my bday, people try to get you hurt =]~ He surprised me with a Spirit Cruise!!!

 (it was freeeeeeezing!!!!) I <3 DC!! (My Stuart Weitzman boots held up pretty well to the weather!)
I took tons of pics driving home from DC, check em out on my picasa page (link @ bottom of page)
Here I am passed out!

Then 2 days later on my actual birthday, hubby and I had a few people over for food :)
I was pooped, forgive the exhaustion!!

Then I got my last gift from my babes...the Wii and the Wii fit!!!

According to Wii, I'm older than I actually am, so I'm out of shape! New workout routine begins on 12/1, I hope I can keep up with the posts, it's going to take up so much of my time (daily). Ever heard of it, p90x? Hubby and I will do our best to finish it through!

All in all, my hubby always surprises me at least once and out does him self. I love you honey bunny!!

Thanks for reading guys, if you know me at all, you know I love comments!!

Holiday Giveaway from Yours Truly ;) <--- Link

Hello ladies! First of all I just want to say THANK YOU to the ladies who left me a comment on my last post. I usually replied each and everyone individually but I haven't done it at this time but I just want to let you know guys that I appreciate your sweet and thoughtful comments :) Never fail to make my day! I'll try to reply to all of you as soon as I can!

Anywho... LADIES! We are now approaching the most wonderful time of the year... Christmas! Christmas is all about giving, sharing, and loving. What better time of the year to do a giveaway than Christmas session? Hehe.

Here's what's up.... ;)

Why "Surprise Me"? - This giveaway is inspired by My Pretty Pink Box (click HERE to check on the website). The idea behind this "product" is that you buy a box which is filled with samples from different companies. They would include at least 1-2 full size products but mostly the box is composed of sample goodies. What's interesting about it is that you have no idea what you are getting! (Surprise indeed :]) Price (usually around $9-10 something ) and products varies monthly.

I love surprises, therefore I decided to make the prizes surprise for my lovely readers ;) Yes, just like the Pretty Pink Box, the "presents" are mostly compose of samples, mini's, and travel size goodies. Of course I included some full size items. It's a little bit of everything almost, not just makeup related, but other stuff as well. I don't want to give any hints... its a SURPRISE :)

Even the gift wrap is pink!

My gift wrapping skills is not very impressive. Picture making it look decent but it's really sloppy.

This was a last minute idea. I wanted to buy one for myself and I thought why don't I get another one for giveaway? :) [If only I can afford to get another one so both winners have this!]

Looks like its used but I put on my life I didn't use or swatched this. Brand new baby :) Gorgeous peachy pink color.
