Day 3

Day 03; Name a habit you wish you didn't have

**Not my photo, found on google images.

Biting my damn lips!!!  I hate it, I peel them when I'm bored, tired, stressed, annoyed, upset, anxious etc...  I don't even notice it half of the time until I go to put on lipstick and you can see all the little pieces of skin.  How gross!?  I don't even know how the habit began....*thinks* maaaaaybe it's from when I was about 13 and I used to bite my nails but then I got acrylics which helped me stop, maybe I picked up this habit because I could no longer knaw on my nails? ::shrugs:: who knows, all I know is ME NO LIKEY!!

What kind of habits do you have?  This is just one of my many habits, but the only one that truly bothers me because it affects my face/skin lol (btw, I don't drink, smoke, or do drugs)....those aren't part of my many habits.


Turned Up Turquoise

 Currently Sally's beauty supply is having a sale on Orly nail polish 2/$5 and save $1 on two China Glaze polishes.  I wanted to take advantage of both but only took advantage of one sale.  I tend to fall in love with every nail polish color I ever see so I narrowed it down.  Right now I am wearing "Turned up Turquoise".  I also purchased "Shower Together" which I was wearing yesterday but forgot to take pictures before I took it off.  Here's the turquoise color:

^Natural light with no flash, no top coat

^With clear top coat

I really like this brand and color.  I have a few China Glaze nail polishes because I used to work at Sally's so I took advantage of my discount BIG TIME! lol  All it takes is 2 coats to get the color in the bottle.  This shade is a little different than the regular China Glaze colors.  Normally they have a nice shiny finish but this one is matte...still very pretty but with how often I was my hand I need a top coat.  Which BTW, Out the Door is my favorite.  It dries very quickly and doesn't chip off like I've noticed with some other quick dry top coats, but what works for one may not work for all.

Also, I just want to say hello to my new followers!! ::waves::

Some online shopping

I've been feeling a little less than happy lately so what better way to cheer yourself up than some online shopping???  I wasn't too bad, I know I need things for fall and winter after moving from Cali to the east I have nothing.  I stuck to sweaters and cardigans, although I do need boots I think I'm going to wait so I have more options.  Here are the things I ordered today from A'Gaci ( and LoveCulture (  I have never ordered from either site before so when I get them I will do a review for you guys.
(All photos are taken from their sites)
From A'Gaci;

I actually got this in black, the gray was sold out in my size.

I loved the purple on the model so I got the same.  I'm loving the ruched sleeves that are in this season!

Got this in gray.  I love that it can be worn with jeans but would also look appropriate with slacks.

From LoveCulture;**Sorry these images are so small, they only blurred when enlarged.

This is just a plain black cardigan but I figured you can't have too many cardigans nor too much black when it comes to fall and winter.

This is called a "preppy v-neck sweater" I thought that sounded cute and is exactly what I've been looking for!  I love these simple sweaters.

Hopefully you guys like my picks, nothing too amazing but things that I truly needed... Now I just hope quality is good and size fits perfectly.
