3 of My Favorite Amazon Purchases 

Since I discovered Amazon Prime I haven’t stopped using it. Online shopping is addictive as it is, but Primes best feature is the free 2 day shipping. So I never have to leave my bed and I get my stuff in 2 days! You had me at free shipping. Whats not to love! I wanted to share with you guys 3 of my favorite things purchased from Amazon Prime!

 

I’ve recently discovered this deep love for makeup. While I am definitely a frugal fashionista make up loving dies get expensive as heck! The makeup world absolutely swoons over all things Morphe! Once I hit the lottery so will I. Until this I found a sort of dupe to the famed Morphe 350 palette. This palette named Nature Glow is by Preup. It cost 14.99 and it’s eligible for amazon prime! I would definitely recommend this palette I actually will more than likely buy another one or two. I’m a review reader so of course I read em! People complained of their palettes being broken, not being pigmented enough or even the eyeshadow being stinky! Im here to tell the mine shipped perfect nothing broken and mine sure doesn’t smell. Start slaying and get your palette here

This palette is perfect for Fall or any season

Of course I need tools. I love these brushes. Arent these the cutest? The My Sweetie Unicorn Makeup Brushes, are $12.99 and are eligeble for 2 day shipping! Sweet! The set of 10 brushes came with 2 silicone makeup applicators, and a bag. The order discription said a makeup brushed cleaner was included but I didnt get that. No biggie I ended up just making one check that out here! All in all the synthetic brushes are pretty dope! For the price! There so cute (did I mention that) and the handles are twisted like a unicorns horn. The bristles are very soft and theres very minimal shedding. I checked and the price actually went down get your tools right here

I love this brush set so soft and pretty

Since I’ve oily skin I need all the extra mattifiying extras I can get. This setting powder by Sacha does exactly that! I use this to finish off any makeup look. I use this powder in the shade Buttercup but it also comes in Buttercup Light. I bake, set my foundation, and to highight. I dont look ashy and shiny in my selfies, which makes this up there close to my holy grail favorites. The oil free shine reducing comes in a 1 ounce for $20 bucks on Amazon Prime. So being so shiny in your pics and get some Sacha here

The powder is so fine and soft! Notice the “baked” areas in picture 2 are the highlighted areas in picture 3

8 Fashion “Rules” That Are Keeping You From Your Ultimate Flyness

Theres always these unwritten fashion “rules” that everyone feels like they need to follow. Not really. Some of these so called rules no one even knows where they originated from. Since our great granny and her mom followed them we just automatically fall in line. HOWEVER some of these rules can keep you from reaching your potential flyness. Why would you wanna do that? Check this out after reading this article we are going to forget all these so called “rules” and wear whatever we want! Right? Right!

  • Everyone is so afraid of mixing prints when it’s actually fashion forward! Click here for a post I did on how to nail mixing prints.
  • Um sexy doesn’t mean showing skin. Honestly. Theres this misconception that the more skin you show the sexier you look. What if I told you that you’d look tacky? Leaving something to the imagination is actually sexier than you think!
  • Wearing white after Labor Day. That rule was made back when side pieces wore the  red letter A. I don’t even know why it existed. Coco Chanel wore white year round. Wear white whenever you want and tell em I said it!
  • If you bougie you think faux diamonds are a hot mess. Clearly I am not bougie! I have faux diamonds everywhere
  • clutches aren’t only for the “club” I love a bright sequins glitterly or hot pink clutch on a Sunday lunch date with my mom. It seems to make my day go smoother!!
  • Get it out your head that denim on denim is a no go!! It’s a definite go!
  • Classic or vintage doesn’t have to cost a ton. You can get amazing vintage at a yard sale or even the local Goodwill. I’ve gotten classic pieces of great quality at estate sales.
  • If you hate shopping you just recycle the same old ancient stuff that’s in your closet. Online shopping is and easy fix for your stay in bed shoppers.

How To Unplug From Social Media In 7 Easy Steps

How many times have you checked your phone even if you didn’t get a notification? I know I’ve don’t it too. Our phones are like an extension of our hand. I see the “You Have The Same 24 Hours As Beyoncé coffee mug all the time. I’ve posted it before. Its 1000% true. We waste so many of those hours head buried in a phone. Can you go a day with out your phone 67% of people can’t. Every now and again it healthy and recommended you take a mini detox from your timelines.

OMG why would I get off Facebook? 

  • Think for a second how much time you spend on going back and for between apps. Imagine an awkward family gathering, perfect for repeated scrolling on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat. And repeat
  • Before you know it you’ll be comparing your life to everyone in your feed. Mind you people post what the they want you to see on social media. Sure we’ll post the concert but not the struggle. Social media accounts are merely highlight reals.
  • You have so much other real life things you could be doing! Cleaning out the garage, that one DIY project all on my own to-do list.
  • The long and short of it is, there’s no such thing as a life better than yours ( stole that from J Cole) We truly can experience that if were out life that life and not Facebooking through life.

So you have reason, here’s how to do it! Deactivate your social media accounts and delete the apps! Don’t log back in for 30 days. Simple right? ‘ the only real way to “Detox”. I realize cold turkey is tough so take these gradual steps to detox and save your thumbs.

  1. YOU DONT HAVE TO POST IT TO PROVE IT!!! People feel like if they don’t post the new shoes, fancy meal it didn’t happen. Thats so not the case. Who are we trying to prove anything to anyway?
  2. Don’t immediately check your news feed as soon as you open your eyes. First be thankful, then wait an hour before logging in to anything. Shut down all lurking and hour before bedtime.
  3. Actually visit spend time with your family and friends. A tag in a picture of hitting love is nothing compared to real communication.
  4. Clean up your news feed. The negativity on your timeline is exhausting in its self.
  5. Set limits around when you use social media … maybe only after 9pm?
  6. You can’t honestly say you need FB, IG, Snapchat on every device you own. The convenience of having access to everything all the time can become addictive.
  7. Subscribe to your favorite websites newsletter  so you can get the scoop when you check your email. Subscribe to the LipstickznGunz newsletter here

After you’ve taken a break you’ll come back rejuvenated more focused, with a clear head. Relationships with your loved once can even improve. You’ll find yourself doing exactly the things you really wanna do. You’ll be living.

Back in 2005 the in thing was guys wearing those ridiculous 4x tall t-shirt things. Im so happy the trend died. The local gas station however didn’t get the memo. Today and only today I took advantage and got one for todays look. I helped myself to a pair of my moms on jeans and made this corset.
