Play! by Sephora June 2017

It’s been quite some time since I have shared an unboxing of one of my favorite subscription “boxes,” Play! by Sephora!!  The reason I love Play! by Sephora is that I know I am always going to get quality products since they all come from Sephora.  I was definitely pleased with the items I got this month, especially because two items came from Benefit and Kat Von D.   I have never tried anything by Kat Von D but I was super excited to see the brand in my bag.  Also, how cute is the bag?!?!

Stranded on an Island

Recently I was browsing Pinterest for some blog post ideas and I stubbled upon a post by A Girl, Obsessed.  She list some post ideas specifically for beauty bloggers as well as other  categories.  One of the ideas on her list was to write about five products you would take with you if you were stranded on island.  I thought this would be a fun and interesting post.

Birchbox Unboxing: April 2017

I love receiving my Birchbox in the mail every month because I love not knowing what I’ll be getting and it feels like a gift each month!!

April Birchbox

April’s Birchbox theme is one I really like because it talks about the beauty that comes within.  From the outside the box is plain but the cursive “Magic Inside” makes it look very cute.  In the inside, the box has a bunch of designs on a light pink background.  I definitely think they nailed it this month on the box!!

 

So let’s get into what I got this month.  If you want to know, keep reading!! Continue reading

Returning to Makeup & Flowers

Long time, no blogging!!!

It has been a long time since I have posted anything on Makeup & Flowers!! There are a couple of reasons why I have decided to come back but one major reason is that I’m about to graduate with my Bachelors Degree and as that time gets closer, I feel the pressure of finding a job and in the process I can start to feeling lonely, if that makes sense.  I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one that doesn’t have a job lined up after graduation but at times it feels like that.  Blogging helps me feel a sense of belonging and also a sense of purpose since I’m doing something creative that I really like.

Returning

I decided to come up with a schedule in order to help me keep blogging longer than once or twice so here it is!!  Continue reading

Chic Thanksgiving Nails

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I absolutely love this holiday, I love cooking, spending time with family, and of course, eating!!! Every year my mom helps me make the turkey while we watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Currently our turkey is in the oven so I wanted to share with you all my nails for this holiday.  At first I wanted to go for more traditional colors but I think the deep blue looks great with the gold accent nail, I think it adds a chic twist!!  Continue reading

Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bacca | Stila

I’ll be completely honest, it took me a long time to get into the liquid lipstick scene!! I know, I know, it’s crazy, but the reason for that is because I didn’t really know which brand to try and I was a bit intimidate by the whole thing.  While I did try a liquid lipstick a few years ago, it wasn’t too popular and I didn’t wear it much since the shade was dark and  at that time I was still getting used to deeper shades.  Anyway, I finally tried a liquid lipstick in August or September since it came my Birchbox.

stila-bacca

I really loved the lipstick I had received, which was the Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina by Stila.  I decided to do a little bit of browsing to see which color I would get next.  Two shades caught my attention: Ricco and Bacca.  I wanted to see how they each compared to each other so I googled swatches.  In my search, I stumbled upon a post which said that while they loved the shade for Bacca, they didn’t really like the application.

Because of that, I decided I would buy Ricco, but when I saw Bacca in person, I just had to have it.  I took a chance and decided to buy the lipstick even if I had heard negative comments on it.  I’ve had this lipstick now for about 2-3 months.  Keep reading to find out if it indeed sucked or if it exceeded my expectations!! Enjoy! Continue reading

Birchbox Unboxing: September 2016

As always, I get very excited to not only receive my monthly Birchbox, but also post about it!  I’m still trying to balance school, work, and blogging, which is why September went by and I completely forgot to post that month’s Birchbox.  So finally, here is what I got for the month of September!  Also, stay tuned for next Monday, I’ll be posting the Birchbox for October.  So let’s get right in! Enjoy!

September 2016 Birchbox

First off, I really like the design of the box, it reminds me of a delicious cupcake with sprinkles!!  For September, Birchbox celebrated getting stuff done and also those who love Birchbox because it was their 6th anniversary.  The box design is super appropriate for that celebration.
