The Beauty Corner (Lipsy London)

A couple of weeks ago I won this Lipsy London Pallet from Gabrielle who blogs at A Glass Of Ice
It is such fun to win a contest! I tend to mostly buy makeup and supplies for my professional kit and I myself don't get much. So I kept this gem for myself. The packaging is super cute and I like the color choices. It came with 6 eye colors and 2 lip colors. The lip colors are very light but I do like them. I love the eye shadows they are perfect for day use.The shadows are silky but not super pigmented which is why I call them day use. I don't wear a lot of makeup, I am kinda a run out the door person. I spend more time on skincare. I tried to get a picture of the makeup on but my camera is very temperamental (I need a new one) and my I phone 4 makes my look like a bobble head. It looks nice on and I have been using this makeup since I got it. Thank you again Gabrielle.

The Beauty Corner (LUSH)

While in Vegas I went to the LUSH store. I love that store, it is full of all kinds of wonderful skincare and smells amazing. These are natural products and the people who work in the store are super friendly and knowledgeable. I ran out of face scrub so this was my perfect excuse to get something. This is what I got.

 Ayesha Face mask and Let The Good Times Roll face scrub.

The scrub smells like cookies and works very well for a mild to medium scrub. The scrub is a very fine paste. The face mask which must be kept in the fridge smells botanical. The face mask is only good for about two weeks. They told me I could get 3 uses out of it. That is true there is enough product to cover face, neck and decolletage. I felt and saw a difference when I used it after the scrub. I liked them both. I also got a few samples. Daddy-O purple shampoo (blondes know what that is) which I liked, it reminded me of Shimmering Lights by Clairol. Gorgeous and Shangri La moisturizers both are very nice and perfect for day use.

Scenery to Photograph (Spring in Las Vegas)

I had a few days in Vegas! This is my picture diary of some of the things I saw.


  Conservatory and Botanical Gardens at the Bellagio










We got the Dallas Burger and the Bobby's Blue Burger both really good. The Dallas Burger was the winner.
I was so hungry I didn't get photos but you can see them here.


Excalibur Buffet pretty good but I eat too much and then hate myself. If you do go to the buffet get the crepe they make it to order as you watch. I got cherry's, strawberry's with whip cream, chocolate and sugar. It was so good.






Stores, more stores than anyone can go to but here are a few you will like





                                I will be reviewing these Lush products in another post


                              Hershey's Store new since I last visited Vegas.









  All different flavors of Kisses





Paris

Luxor



                                    





I thought this movie was really good. I liked the first one too. No I didn't read the book so...

Do you see the price for 3D and in a nice area. It is $18 a ticket where I live.
Good ole California $$$$

The Beauty Corner (Ulta Scrubs and Self Tanner)

I can't tan too much in the sun anymore due to getting keratosis that the doctor has to freeze off. I had free tanning as a benefit in a beauty salon I worked in. Even though I had an amazing tan I am paying for it now. I'm lucky I have only had small ones on my arms and back.  I like to be tan and have found the VS self tanner spray to be amazing.  I thought I would get the Ulta since they had a special, buy 2 get 2. So I ended up with 2 scrubs and 2 self tanners.

The scrubs are gentle. The Freshwater Mist Sugar Scrub smells so amazing I am totally into it. The Coconut Cream Sugar Scrub smell is not amazing just OK.

The self tanner is also just OK. The color got a little fake looking after a few days of spraying. It does work good, I'm just too light to use it more than a day or two in a row. I also noticed the melanin smell after a few hours so I knew it was working but I hate that smell. The tanner itself doesn't really have a strong smell. I was able to spray even with the can upside down and it has a locking type cap. So I have mixed feelings about it. I got about 6 full body sprays out of this 6oz can.

What's in My Closet (Revamping my old capris)

I have a few pairs of capris and I need shorts. I decided to see how many of them can be transformed into some cool shorts. Attempt one was very easy. These capris have wide legs and a semi stiff material so I rolled them up and walla I have some cute Bermuda shorts. What do you think?

Deedee's Beauty Corner (Feria hair color by Loreal)

I have been guilty the past two years of buying the cheapest hair dye to touch up my roots. I decided to stop that and get the Feria hair color in Very Light Beige Blonde. I forgot how much I liked it. It lightened my hair up a bit and added the shimmer effect I really like. I love the conditioner that comes in the kit, it also has a shimmer effect.

The kit comes with color, developer, shimmer serum which you add to color, gloves and the conditioner. I usually leave in my hair for 25 minutes and then pull through the ends for the last 10.

I ended up with platinum blonde hair with some golden highlights. My natural hair color is blonde level 6.

Gingham is back and as luck would have it, I still have this gingham skirt.  This is one of my favorite skirts that got lost in the back of my closet. I think I will wear it a lot this spring and summer. It looks pretty cute with this ruffled top and my ankle strap shoes.
