Things I'm Loving

1. Viva La Juicy Rollerball

I've had a small Viva La Juicy Noir since last Christmas as well as a sample of the regular version from November. I got this on Sunday and have been wearing it nonstop. My "signature scent" has always been Pink Sugar by Aqualina, but I think this perfume would be a nice one to switch it up with, as it is a lot less sweet.


2. Kiss Me Or Elf from OPI

This came in the Gwen Stefani Christmas set from OPI, which was graciously gifted to me by a dear, dear friend. As soon as I saw this color in the package I knew I needed it on my nails. It requires a few coats to be completely opaque, but it's such a gorgeous transition color between the seasons because it's not too dark where it's a deep berry on my nails but it's also not a neon or a pastel. It has a nice sheen to it too, not quite metallic but not creamy either. I can't wait to try the other colors in the collection (there's a beautiful red that I want on my toes ASAP).


3. Too Faced's Melted Lipsticks

I picked up two of these on Sunday (along with some other lipsticks that I'm sure I'll talk about soon, didn't want to overload them in one post) and narrowly avoided purchasing another one yesterday while I was shopping. They smell fantastic, apply smoothly (some liquid lipsticks are really drying, I've found), and have some pretty intense pigmentation. A little goes a long way with these, let me tell you! I really like the spongy applicator too because it helps apply it it more precisely. It looks like a tube with a sponge tip, so you'd apply it like a tube lipgloss, just with more precision.

I have the shades Melted Violet, a true vibrant lilac/violet combo, and Melted Jelly Donut, a deep magenta, and both of them have incredible wear time. I wore Melted Jelly Donut all day on Wednesday, through two meals, and had no real issues with fading.


4. The Body Shop Blueberry Body Butter

Oh. My. God. Guys, this is the nicest smelling body butter I have ever smelled. It smells like sour blueberries and it is absolutely heavenly. I'm trying to get better about using lotion on my body because I notice once the spring and summer months come, my legs are gross and patchy because I avoided lotion the entire winter. So, here I am trying to be good and keep my skin hydrated. This was also a gift from my friend Aly (hey girl, you nailed it!) and is sadly a special edition, but if you can find this anywhere, I highly recommend it. Body Shop's body butters are all fantastic and super hydrating, but this smell.... *faints because it's so great*
