Sephora Giveaway!!

Hi Everyone, 

I've decided to do a Sephora Giveaway since Sephora is my favorite store to shop at for all things beauty-related: makeup, tools, hair products, lotions, etc. I like Sephora because I like that there are so many different brands available, and that everything is available for trying on yourself in store. 

I always have good experiences there with the salesgirls as well. They are very nice and helpful, without being too pushy. 

My giveaway is going to be for $25 gift card to Sephora! Enter by commenting below.

-Comment below with your email address (so I contact you if you win) for 1 entry (must be a follower of my blog)

The contest ends September 30!

Thanks and good luck everyone!

Win A Sigma Eyeshadow Palette Giveaway!!

Click here to visit Madiha's Makeup Blog and enter to win!

Win one of these (your choice) eyeshadow palettes from Sigma Beauty.

I've seen a lot of bloggers review these palettes, and they all seem to really like them. This would be a fun way to try out a new brand. I've never tried sigma, but have been wanting to try them for awhile, especially their brushes, because bloggers seem to like them a lot. I don't like spending a lot on brushes, but if the brush is not soft, I really just end up not using them.

Have you tried any Sigma Products? What do you think of them? Have you tried their eyeshadow?

I like their cute colored brush sets, like this pink one.

Here is a review of the sigma eyeshadow palettes by Tiffany D.

Fall Wishlist

I love these bright red Cookie Johnson jeans. 'Joy' Legging in Radiant Red

I love my 'Faith' Straight Cookie Johnson jeans, but don't usually like the fit of skinny jeans, or leggings. Maybe these might work better with the spandex!

Here they are in white, these would look so cute tucked into fall boots! Cookie Johnson 'Joy' Legging in Optic White.

Stuart Weitzman Platswoon. I love these bright red pumps! They are so sexy.

I love that flared jeans are back! I love the look of these black Cookie Johnson 'Felicity' Flare jeans, but unfortunately, I don't like the fit! I ordered three sizes. My usual size 28 was too big in the waist, and the 27's were still a bit big in the waist, but too loose in the leg already.

Cookie Johnson jeans tend to stretch out a little after wearing. The 26's were way too small. I liked the idea of these jeans, but they are too low-rise for me, and didn't fit right.

Curvy women: Mad Men Era


"Mad Men kicks off in the age of Marilyn, and the show's resident sex symbol is Joan, the curvaceous office manager who would scoff at the thought of wearing a minimizer bra. Back then, big busts and corresponding hips were in, and while small waists were part of the deal, size 2 wasn't something to strive for. Fashion flattered the hourglass figure, not the straight and narrow. Women looked more like females — you know, the gender capable of producing and nursing another human being — than like adolescent boys. Alas, this is the early '60s. Soon Twiggy will come along and ruin everything."

"One thing is clear: These women love their curves: "It's OK to have curves and be a woman. I wish more women would realize that's what men like," January Jones said. As for Christina Hendricks? "My healthiest habit is keeping positive about my body at whatever stage it is -- being confident and celebrating who I am at the moment."

A Too-Faced Makeup Giveaway on Veronika's Blushing!

Click the link above to enter a $50 giveaway to

I love Too-Faced. Their eyeshadows in my opinion are very well priced, versatile, flattering, and the pallettes that I've had in the past I've always really liked all the colors.

I am wanting this palette, the 'Naked Eye' Palette, by Too Faced. I have the Urban Decay Naked Palette, but as you can see the colors are different! I also think their makeup is very well priced. It's not too pricey, but the formula for the eyeshadow is very good.

I really like the smaller size, and brush included, I think it would be perfect for travelling!

It's on my wishlist!
