Drugstore Haul | Rite Aid

Hey loves!

When was the last time this girl shared a haul with you? Sheesh. It's been FOREVER! Well, I recently took a trip to Delaware to visit my mother and you KNOW I had to make a stop at her Rite Aid up the street from her house. Her Rite Aid is glorious! It is always stocked with the newest drug store makeup and beauty products. Rite Aid has some really good sales and always has coupons for beauty products. Best part? No sales tax in Delaware, EVER!

Anyways... Let's get on with the haul!

So sorry for any bad photo quality in advance.
My camera has been dead for a while now, I lost the cord for it!! :-/
Fortunately, I was able to get another one yesterday.
Gotta love Amazon Prime! Lol

The Resolute Beauty Blogger - Update

Hey, loves.

It's time for an update on my resolutions! It's been quite a while since I updated this tag, but nontheless, I'm here now. :) Check out the original post, here. Lots of things have been happening since I made my resolutions earlier this year, good and bad. I stopped blogging for a while to focus on some other things going on in my life. I had to do some heavy soul searching for a while as well. Since then, things have been looking up! I'm back on the blogging scene. Updating and creating posts as much as I can, making sure that I reach out to my blogger friends, and staying up to date on products and sharing them with you all. It has truly become a therapy for me.

Anyways! On to my resolutions...
My resolutions are:
- Revamp my blog little by little until it's to MY standards. This is a goal that is slowly becoming a reality. Little by little, I plan, tweak, rearrange, and do it all over again until it's perfect.

- Make more blogger friends! This is becoming a reality as well! Twitter and Google+ has really become a place where I can connect with other bloggers and make friends. It makes me so happy!

- Create a set schedule to post every week. (i.e. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, maybe Saturday?) Ha... This is still in the works! Sorry, ladies. I never know what my life has in store for me!

- Do a swap with another blogger. Sadly, this hasn't happened yet. However, I'm in no rush to do so. If you're interested in doing a swap with me email, Google+, Twitter DM, or Facebook Message me! I'm open to anyone!

- Don't push my visions and dreams aside. If I dream of something, I need to make it happen. I spend way too much time telling myself that it's not good enough to post when it really is... This is something that has become a personal goal as well. I have to tell myself this every single day, and guess what? It worked! I'm making things happen and becoming more confident in what I do. Everyday is a new learning experience.

- Start a tag with some of my blogger friends. It's happened!! Check the tags out here and here!

- Immerse myself in the beauty community. It's happening!! YouTube has been my best friend lately. I'm taking notes on all of the beauty videos I watch. Commenting on blog posts, RTs on Twitter, Shares on Facebook, working with different companies, checking out different websites... It's happening, ladies.

- Get better at HTML coding. Enough said. Ha... This? Yeah, not so much. I'm working on it though! Lol

- Make my first YouTube video. Hmmm... I don't think I should comment about this just yet. :)

- Be confident! A lot of positive self talk will be happening this year! It's happening!!! Everyday I'm getting better and better at this self-talk thing. It really does wonders to just have confidence and a positive attitude about things. Even if the circumstances seem bad or undesirable, walking into it with a positive attitude makes all the difference. Trust me on this! Give it a try.
What are your goals this year?
Have you achieved any of them?!

Spring Lips 2014

Hey there, beautiful!
It's that time of year to start busting out all of the bright colors! Yay!!
I've been waiting so long to bring out some of my bright colors that I have stowed away in my lippie drawer. Since I have mentioned a lot of the bright colors that I have before, I want to mention a few that I haven't to give a try.
If you haven't noticed, I have a bit of an obsession with Maybelline's lip products lol.
I promise that I'm attempting to branch out and find others!!
Be warned, there are a few in the photo above that I haven't mentioned below because they didn't make the final cut! Sorry!
Here are some new colors to try for Spring and into Summer...
We want Pinks, Corals, Oranges, vibrant Purples, and Nudes!!

My Weekend in Photos | April 11, 2014

Hey there, Beautiful!!

I had such a jam-packed, fun-filled weekend this weekend so I wanted to share it with you!!! Starting from Friday until Sunday I've done so much walking, eating, laughing, talking, and taking photos. This weekend was somewhat special because I did lots of things that I don't normally do. That's the best thing about life sometimes: being able to spend time with the people you love while doing and trying new things. Check out my weekend below. So sorry for the photo quality, all of these photos are taken from my phone. 

Don't worry, more beauty posts are coming!

Bora Bora Bombshell

Hello, my beauties!

Welcome to Bora Bora!!!

Well... not exactly Bora Bora... but when I received the Be a Bombshell's Bora Bora eyeshadow quad in my Ipsy bag last month, I was immediately whisked away in my mind to that beautiful place.

I wanted to emulate that island feeling in the look that I created for you today. Be warned! This look is definitely bold and daring. But what would a bombshell be if she didn't make a bold and daring entrance!?

With these products, I created a look that I have simply fallen in love with and hope you will too. 

So... come with me to Bora Bora!
