#AriaNightOut Vegas Makeup Looks

I was contacted recently by the content director for and was asked to create a blog post centering around the Aria Resort.  I took a look at what the Aria Resort was and loved the pictures I saw.  Inspiration really hit me with this and I'm glad I can be apart of this 'blog party'!

People are posting a variety of things like hair, nails, and makeup.  Well, my hair and nail skills are horrible, but I definitely could put some makeup looks together to help inspire those staying in Vegas!

I created two looks to wear out and one inspiration type look based on a photograph I saw of the Aria Resort.

This place is truly lovely and I hope to visit there sometime soon!

Too Faced La Crème de La Crème Long Lasting Lip Collection at Sephora

Long post title, I know.  I bought the exclusive kit from Sephora because I was dying to try the Too Faced lipstick formula and this seemed like the perfect way to do it!

I thought I would share my opinion on whether or not it was worth it and provide some swatches for you in case you were thinking of getting it too!

Not Your Mother's Beach Babe #NYMBeachBabe Texturizing Spray

I am signed up with Influenster and was recently chosen to participate in one of their "VoxBox" campaigns.  I found this pretty neat because they just sent me a box of stuff and I get to review it.  Part of the box was Not Your Mother's hair items, I believe it was a shampoo and conditioner.  I love that they included this brand because I've been using their hair products long before I received this voxbox.  I didn't get the shampoo and conditioner in my box but that doesn't mean I can't show the brand some love!

I admit I know very little about hair products or how to style hair.  Makeup and skincare is more of my thing, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate a hair product that improves the appearance of my hair.  Normally my hair is flat, dull, and lifeless.  Really.  Horrible.  To top that off it gets greasy after a short amount of time.  A curse, really.  I actually dye my hair to dry my hair out.  Anyways, this product really improves the texture of my hair.  I just spray it in while damp and let my hair air dry.  I'm left with a better looking hair once dried.  

I bought the texturizing spray from Ulta for about $6.  I recommend trying this and at the price point it won't completely break the bank to give it a go!
