What do you miss most about being a kid?
I miss not having a care in the world. I see my pre schoolers & envy them. There biggest worry is getting to the swings first at recess. 
Oh, to be young again.
Did you have a nickname growing up? What was it?
I'm pretty sure I win the award for the most embarrassing nickname as a kid.
I don't even know why my parents called me this.
My nickname was Duba.
Thankfully, no one calls me that anymore. Phew.
What was your favorite thing to do at recess?
When I was in elementary school my brother & sister were in pre pre-school at the same school.
During recess I would go visit them. 
My favorite play activity though was the big dome jungle gym type thing.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I have always wanted to be a teacher. My mom bought me this whole teacher set up with a chalkboard and desk and I would "teach" my siblings. 
What was your favorite toy?
My favorite toy was my barbies & barbie house
I was obsessed
What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?
My parents would always have music on & I loved the song baby baby by Amy Grant.
They caught me multiple times in a corner by myself dancing and shaking my hips.
Till this day they tease me. 
Psh, I liked to let loose give me a break!

Mascara Routine

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Today lets talk about mascara. 
I don't know about you but i LOVE mascara. It can take you from drab to fab in just a few seconds. 
My lashes are pretty long but sparse. 
I've found the perfect mascara combo that gives me some extra volume and doesn't clump!
I use Maybelline's Mega Plush (water proof) & then Maybelline's One By One.
                    
 Mega Plush (water proof) 
-gel-mousse formula
-great for volume  
- I bought the waterproof bc I heard the regular smudges & no one wants to be looking like a raccoon!
-It is hard to take off bc it is waterproof
-retails for about $7
-wouldn't wear this by itself but its great along side another mascara


One By One
-great for separating lashes
-the wand grabs every lash
-if you have any clumps it combs them out
-perfect for getting your bottom lashes
-easy to take off
retails for about $8 

   
                
If you are looking for a new mascara give these 2 a try!

Weekend Update- Haulage

Monday, September 24, 2012

I hope everyone had a fun weekend!
It was gorgeousssss here in Georgia this weekend! To bad it can't be like that all year round.
Today I am linking up with Sami for a Weekend Update

This weekend consisted of nothing but shopping for me. I swear I have a problem. 
But I got some great deals so my wallet is happy.

Saturday I went shopping for a swap I am doing. 
I went to Target & I should have known I couldn't walk out of there without getting myself anything.

This scarf I have been eyeing for no joke about 3 months. I had it in my hand and then would always walk out with out it. Well, I finally got it! & I got a Matte nail polish to try that Coley had talked about.

On Sunday I woke up to a email from Ulta.

You can bet your butt as soon as I got out of church I was there.

I didn't go overboard but the sale is until Friday so I will probably be going back. I just can't help it!
If y'all use the revelon 24 hour whipped foundation you need to go stock up! its only $8.39!
Oh, and don't forget to use the $3.50 off $10 or more coupon! 

Have a great Monday :)

Boho Gold


Today I am linking up with The Nail Files




I'm going to be doing a post next week on my favorite nail polishes for the fall. Before I do that though I wanted to share with you all today one of my top favorites.
It is Maybelline's Color Show in Boho Gold




I think it is such a pretty color for the fall time
& it is a dupe for the Chanel polish in Peridot

via

It did take about 3 coats to get the desired color that is on my nails. The first coat was very opaque.
But I love it & think its so cute for Fall!

What colors are you loving on your nails for the Fall?

Today I am linking up for the first time for The Weekend Update Blog Hop




Friday I just might of stayed in my pajamas till 5, and didn't even feel bad about it. 
I promise I was being productive though, I did homework all day. bleh.
My sister and I did do a little shopping though.
We went to Ulta and TJMaxx, and did a little bit of damage
Then we came home Eclipse was on TV!



Saturday consisted of more homework all morning. It never ends!
I took a break from hw though and went to my favorite store ever, Target.
My sister & I loved watching Eclipse so much last night that we decided to have a Twilight marathon Saturday night.
We watched Twilight & New Moon.
I haven't watched Twilight in FOREVER it was weird to see Bella so young!


Sunday I didn't do much of anything.
I made halloween cupcakes with my sister.
I know it is way to early but Target sucked me in with all there Halloween stuff out.
Then my mom & I went to Home Goods.
I have been looking for a giant cute coffee mug and finally found one there!
I love it!



Happy Monday :)
