Mascara Disappointment: Covergirl Lashblast Fusion

It's not often that I blog about products that I do not like, I try to keep this blog a positive place! I live for big, bold lashes.  As such, I have tried so many mascara's over the year always searching for something better than my all time favorite mascara, the original Covergirl Lashblast.  I thought, why not try another Lashblast product?  But I've run into a mascara that I really just don't like!  I'm looking atCovergirl Lashblast Fusion Mascara.  The product claims to lengthen and volumize, but it falls extremely short of it's claims.  Unlike its sister mascara, Lashblast Fusion doesn't hold a curl and the mascara doesn't layer well at all.  No matter how many layers I apply, my eyelashes remain the same. I love that with the original Lashblast I can layer the product to achieve my desired look - from natural, fluttery lashes to bold, almost-false lashes.  While trying new mascara can be extremely fun or severely disappointing, I think I've learned my lesson.  I'll be sticking to the original Covergirl Lashblast for a long time.  Have you tried any disappointing beauty products recently?

Summer Shopping

I'm starting to get my wardrobe ready for summer.  Think cute patterned shorts, lightweight dresses, and denim jackets.  Since the items that I look for in the summer seasons are rather trendy items, I don't like to invest too much money in any one piece.  Below are some of my favorite websites to shop for summer clothing.  I've been stalking them daily for outfit inspiration.  I'm recommending these websites because they stock some of the cutest pieces (and super trendy too) at rather affordable prices:

If I want to spend a little bit more I love lulus!

I just picked up these shorts from Tobi and I'm anxiously awaiting their arrival in the mail.

These are my go-to style of shorts in the summer.  The material is light and the elastic waist is flattering and extremely comfortable.  I absolutely adore the pompom detail at the bottom and the bright tie-dye print is super fun!  I'm planning on pairing the short with an oversized gray V-neck, for a comfortable and laid back summer look.  I just hope that the pink isn't too bright in person!  

Still on my shopping list for this summer is a new denim jacket.  The tricky thing about a denim jacket is choosing the right shade of denim, I'm thinking a medium denim, but I have yet to find the perfect one.  Oh, and I want to find a funky brooch to pin onto one of the jacket's pockets!

Perfume Obsession

The last few months, I've been obsessed with perfume.  It's so fun having a wide selection of scents to choose from depending on my mood, the occasion, and even the weather.

Last month I picked up the Sephora Favorites Bottled Dreams Perfume Sampler.  It's a great way to sample perfumes - the set comes with 7 perfume samples in the cutest miniature bottles.  When you've chosen your favorite scent, you can redeem the included scent certificate for a full-size version of the perfume you've selected.  I initially purchased the set with the intention to redeem the certificate for a full-size Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black but I've fallen in love with Lancome La Vie Est Belle and I'm also really enjoying  Escada Joyful.  But the jury is still out as I'm still trying to figure out what perfume I want in a full size.
After receiving a sample of Balenciaga's Florabotanica when the fragrance first came out, I was head over heels in love the scent.  The notes, Carnation, Wild Mint, Turkish Rose Essence, Hemp Leaves, Vetiver Roots, White Amber, make for a sophisticated and feminine but not overly sweet floral scent.  My friend gifted me with a rollerball of the perfume for my birthday and I couldn't be happier with the gift as the rollerball form makes it easy to throw in my purse and easy to travel with.  The scent is definitely versatile - good for day and night and all year round.  Also, it lasts all day!
