February Favorites & A Life Update!

I can’t be the only human in existence that forgets February is the shortest month of the year. Every. Dang. Year.

February was an eventful month for me. I was able to try out a few new things, and my life is changing quite a bit. I go over it in the video, but spoiler alert, I’m pregnant with baby #3. We’re really excited, but that’s why I’ve been a bit inconsistent and super behind on videos and reviews lately. I’ve done nothing but sleep. Well, I’ve taken care of kids obviously, but any time I can snooze with them, I’ve been sleeping. However, I’m almost out of the fatigue zombie feeling first trimester, which means I’ll be back with more posts before long!

I didn’t want anyone to think I’ve been intentionally ignoring others or all around bored with life. I’m basically a human cat right now. All I have energy for some days is sleeping and making sure I don’t smell bad.

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy my favorites this month!

Bye, Zee

zee3

I know that some that follow me on Instagram remember me posting quickly that we had a family pet pass away back in December. I know that was in December, but every time I have tried to type this up I break down.

This was my childhood cat, Zee. We called him Zee-meister most of the time. He was 15 years old, and one of our first childhood pets that I can actually remember other than our dog, Sassy.

Zee was a rescue cat. His mom was actually feral, and we all thought his slightly raised hind legs were the coolest when we were young. Like a tiny, domestic tiger that happened to sport a tuxedo. That cat had some hops in his younger days, too. He literally knocked the glasses off a few people and could do flips.

He also did tricks for turkey, and was a spaghetti fiend. He would walk around sporting spaghetti sauce on his face as if nothing was out of the ordinary. I’m still 90% sure he was actually a dog. He couldn’t cat. The other cat my mom formerly had would clean his face and you know that sassy thing was thinking, “This cat is a damn dog. It can’t even clean it’s face.”

Zee was an old boy. We knew that. I guess we didn’t expect him to decline and pass away so quickly. It happened so fast that none of us could really process what happened. Zee was my mom’s baby. For me, there’s absolutely nothing more heartbreaking than hearing my mom heartbroken. I came unglued.

I think another reason why losing Zee is still so hard is because it felt as if a part of my living childhood had died. Zee had heard me cry in middle and high school for various reasons. I was bullied often and didn’t know how to handle it, so I figured I would vent to pets that couldn’t talk back or tell anyone. Zee’s met all my boyfriends. He was always in my loft bed when I was younger and had one. When he was a kitten, he had an unfortunate accident and fell off my loft bed and lost his meow for 6 weeks or so. His meow was never the same after that and he had a permanent falsetto. He sounded a lot like a broken squeaky toy.

He wasn’t always the most affectionate cat, but when he was, it was so incredible sweet. Our childhood dog, Sassy, passed away at a pretty early age for a dog, but there’s something about an older pet passing away that is so tough. Because even though I know he lived a great life and was so incredibly loved, it hurts knowing he won’t be around to make more weird cat memories with. Harmony might have faint memories of him, but I’ll be telling them stories about the weird ass cat that did tricks for lunch meat when they’re a little older.

zee1

My heart is still torn up over this spaghetti loving meow. I’ll miss shewing you off the baby chairs and such at my mom’s house. Maybe you weren’t the nicest, but you were our Zee. I’m so sorry I couldn’t say goodbye to you. I hope wherever you are there’s a loft bed you can hide in and a friend to clean your face. You were our family’s first rescue pet, and you taught us why it’s so important to rescue animals when you can, and a reason why I was so set on rescuing Sailor when we did. When Fall transitions to Winter, a part of me will always be sad over you. You’re a cat that lived through moving, watching kids grow up and move out, and watching those kids have kids. I had a weird feeling when I heard mom talking about your sudden decline in health that maybe you were about to let us know you were ready to pass on. I didn’t realize it would be the next day. Maybe this is selfish of me, but I just want to pet you again. I just want to say goodbye and let you know that I love you so much.

You are still so loved. We still talk about you and laugh over your antics. You’re the kind of cat that will be talked about for a long time. Rest easy, baby kitty.

 

RocksBox Review!

IMG_4038

I have something a teensy bit different today for my blog! I was contacted by Rocksbox and asked if I would be interested in reviewing their subscription service for a few months. I happily agreed after realizing this is the same jewelry service Thataylaaa raved about awhile back. I know I’ve said this before, but she’s one of the few big vloggers I trust, and after browsing through their site for a bit, I was stoked to get my first box! Yes, I did receive this for free, but my thoughts and opinions are my own, as usual.

Shipping was very quick. I had my box two days after my tracking code was sent.

Rocksbox is a monthly jewelry subscription that costs $19 a month, but you get close to or over $200 worth in loaner jewelry. You can also send back the set you have for a new set at any time! Shipping is free both ways for the subscriber, and there is no committment. You can cancel at any point. In the box you get a shipping label, and the envelope it comes in is also the one you send everything back in! I thought that was pretty neat. Little things entertain me.

Each month that you are subscribed, you receive $10 in “shine spend” which allows you to potentially buy a favorite piece of yours and keep it forever! You go through a quiz, much like with Ipsy, in order to figure out which styles you love and don’t love so they can cater your jewelry to you.

So, how did my “stylist” do with mine? Awesome! It’s no secret that I love bold makeup and necklaces. When I opened up my box and saw that necklace, I legitimately gasped.

What was in my box?

Urban Gem Aubrey Necklace– This necklace retails at $80, and isn’t it so stunning? It’s everything I want in a statement necklace. Bold, yet dark and it’s very lightweight. I love this piece and may end up buying it for myself eventually.

Kendra Scott Earrings- These earrings are also some that I can see myself wearing often. I can’t wear super large and heavy earrings because that’s a disaster waiting to happen with two toddlers. I do love pretty earrings that aren’t studs from time to time. These retail at $65.

Jill Michael Delicate double chain bracelet- This is the one thing I’m kind of “meh” about. I’m not really into delicate jewelry. Have I mentioned before that I’m an all or nothing type of person? I’m either tacky or completely bland, there’s rarely an in between with me. This is a really pretty bracelet for anyone that does like more delicate styles though, and retails at $45.

Of course, if you sign up and you’re an insider, the prices to buy most pieces are dropped pretty significantly.

I think this would be a cute “treat yoself” type of subscription since it’s not makeup related, but is still relatively affordable. It would also be a cute gift to someone else!

All in all, I’m really happy with this so far. I’m excited to send a few pieces back and see what’s in store for me next!

If you’re interested in getting your first month with Rocksbox free, I do have a coupon code. Just enter lunafayebeautyxoxo to try this out for free, and you can cancel if it ends up not being for you!

What are your thoughts on subscriptions like this? I would love to hear about them!

As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days.

Things I Actually Like About Winter

 

IMG_4440

I’ve seen quite a few lifestyle posts lately about Wintery things people enjoy, and I felt like I should make one myself. I know I said I’m not very festive, and I’m not, but there’s still a few things I love about darker and colder weather. Other than the fact that I can wear my usual shades of lipstick without everyone staring at me weirdly.

So, here’s a rare lifestyle type post from me. I do hope to do more of these next year, so let me know if you all enjoyed it!

1. I love snuggles.

My family lives in a very small and kind of old house. It doesn’t have a central heating unit, so we rely on one window heater and other heaters we put around the house as we need them. With that being said, electricity companies love the charge out the butthole for heat this time of year, so we try not to use it too much. What does that mean for us? Snuggles. All of the snuggles. I’m completely okay with that. One day my kids will not be okay with sitting on the couch with a giant blanket cuddled with their mom, so for now I am content.

2. I also love sweaters

Alright, so it’s almost officially Winter and Tennessee is still trying to decide if it’s Spring or Winter here (hello, sickness) but I still love pulling out all of my cardigans and chunky sweaters. I can go from goth to tacky mom in 2.5 seconds in the Winter. I give no bothers as long as I’m warm and comfortable.

3. Just give me all the coffee.

It’s dark by 5 pm now? Alright, well that means I need to drink at least 5 cups of hot coffee before then so I can trick my body into thinking it’s wired. I hate how tired I feel when it gets dark that early, but I don’t mind the excuse to indulge in my favorite hot beverage. I also love a nice hot chocolate though! With tons of marshmallows…that’s the only way to drink them, right?

4. Fuzzy Blankets.

Enough said. They’re fuzzy and warm. Electric blankets are nice as well.

5. Watching my Husky be happy.

IMG_4604

When it does snow here, my husky is so happy. It’s so adorable and endearing to watch. I’m not the biggest fan of snow because it makes me very anxious, but watching my dog frolic through it and dig her nose into it warms my cold heart up a bit. Okay, a lot. We all know I have a huge soft spot for that mischievous husky. It’s like watching a child play in the snow for the very first time every year. It never gets old.

6. All the family time.

Whether I’m spending time with my daughters or we’re visiting family, I love spending time with family. Winter can be a tough season for those that struggle with anxiety and depression, but surrounding yourself with people that love and support you is essential, in my opinion. I have to make myself do it at times, but I know it’s vital to my well being.

7. Not shaving

Alright, I’m totally about not shaving all year round if that’s your thing, but I love the extra warmth. That and no one really notices if you didn’t shave. Are my pits bushy under this giant sweater? I don’t care, I’m warm, dammit.

Well, those are seven things I actually enjoy about winter. I don’t enjoy it as much as Fall, but there are things I love about the cold weather. I do love rosy cheeks and cuddling with my kids. I will say that it doesn’t feel like winter yet in Tennessee. It’s supposed to be almost 80 degrees on Christmas, and I thought that was solely a Florida thing.

What are some of your favorite things about Winter? Let me know in the comments!

As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

Here’s a few more pictures of my husky…because puppy. Awwww.

Some Spook-tacular Shops to Check Out

IMG_2708

The week before Halloween is seriously one of my favorite weeks of the year. Other than the week my kids were born, I live for this week. I love seeing everyone put together costumes and makeup looks. However, I am a bit creepy all year. Many things about Halloween I gracefully add to my wardrobe and life all year. So, while we’re in the spirit, I wanted to share some of my personal favorite shops that sell cute and spooky things all year.

Dead Spider Hands: This shop is where that cute mini zine and monster doily came from. The artist that owns this shop’s name is Allie Burke, and she is so incredibly creative. I have a few of her prints in my house, and I always get compliments on how strikingly creepy, yet classy they look on my bookshelf. Her shop is under maintence right now and won’t be up for a few more weeks, but her prints and stickers are so damn adorable.

Shop Deer Heart: This shop is a newer discovery, and I love it so much already! This shop sells cute and creepy (and non creepy) pins and other nifty things. That’s actually where the eyeball ring pictured above came from.

Worship 13: I know I talk about this shop often, but I truly do love her jewelry and I’ve expereniced nothing but amazing things from her shop. I wear her necklaces very often in my Instagram photos, and these are items she makes all year! I love that I can stay spooky cute all year, and her items are budget friendly.

Bella Morta Jewelry: This is another shop I talk about often and mention in my posts, but I do want to include her shop because she will be closing it down soon for personal reasons. I truly love her pieces and I am sad to see her shop go, so I want to share it with you all in case anyone has been wanting anything from my photos. This could be your last chance to snag a few things.

Fiend Boutique: This is another newer shop to me, and it should be obvious that I’m a sucker for any shop that sells cute horror themed necklaces and earrings. I’m a huge Misfits fan so the name just speaks to me on another level, but their items are incredible as well and very affordable. Go look at the Jack-O-Lantern earrings right now. Trust me on this one.

Pretty Zombie Cosmetics: Okay, would it be a post by me if I didn’t include a few makeup shops? I love Pretty Zombie’s lipsticks, and I have talked about them so often before. Their packaging is so adorable though and it has pretty zombie pin up girls on them. Vanity worthy. Need I say more?

My Pretty Zombie Cosmetics: To clarify, this brand is different from Pretty Zombie. This shop sells eyeshadows, and they are incredible! Remember my Halloween tutorial where I used an eyeshadow called “Murder?” That came from this shop. She sells a lot of really awesome quality shadows for $5 each that have the most badass names.

Notoriously Morbid Cosmetics: This shop is probably the newest to me out of all of these, and I’m already head over heels in makeup love. Sharie from Secondhand Sweetness is always talking about them, so I decided to give their mystic matte lipsticks a try, and I was instantly hooked. Their products are vegan and cruelty free, and many are themed. I missed out on the Vincent Price collection, but I did snag the Down the Spiral (also a huge Nine Inch Nails fan, surprise) collection that I will be doing an unboxing for as soon as it arrives. I have high hopes for this brand!

Salem Couture: This shop sells mostly Peter Pan style collars that can be worn with any shirt you have! I love this concept, and I own a few myself that I have used in previous posts. They sell many designs, some spooky and some plain. The mermaid one is one of my personal favorites, and I also own the floral one. They have an instagram page as well and they have discount codes pretty frequently!

That’s it for today’s short little link fest. I know this is not my usual type of post, but I do use a lot of accessories for my looks and tutorials, and I like to share the love. Indie brands and independent artists are always going to have a place in my heart, and I want so many of them to succeed. There’s a lot of talented artists in this post, so make sure to click the links and shop around in your spare time!

As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

Face of the Day: Coffee Date Makeup

IMG_8277

Hey lovelies,

It’s Thursday, so it’s time for me to talk about my face and things that I put on it! Today’s FOTD is going to be more neutral, but with a bit of glam to it. Because, I add glitter and glam to almost everything in my life. If you follow me on Snapchat or Twitter, you’ve probably already seen this look. I wore it to my cute little coffee date with da boyfriend last Friday. We’re trying to save money, so we took coupons into Krispy Kreme (no shame in our game) and bought apple fritters and coffee, and took a walk in the park. It was cute, and much needed. When I first met Jeremy, we went to parks often because we were both totally broke. We would just sit and talk, and sometimes not talk.

Anyway, this post is not about my date, it’s about the makeup I wore for the date. Because I was wearing a jean vest and Metallica shirt, I wanted to put some glitter on my eyes to kinda glam up the look a bit. Because I knew we would be outside, I didn’t do too much to my face.

IMG_8278

My base is relatively simple. I used my Hard Candy sheer envy primer and mixed my usual City Color tinted moisturizer and LA Girl Pro BB cream together (both in the shade fair) and applied it with my hands, and then cleaned up any excess product with a damp beauty blender.

For concealer I used the LA Girl concealer in “porcelain” and set my face with my Laura Geller balance and brightening powder in “porcelain” and set my under eyes with Ben Nye’s setting powder in Cameo. I find this base combination evens out the redness in my skin (thanks, Irish genes) while allowing my freckles to peak through, so it looks very natural.

I only bronzed my face a bit with the Tarte Park Ave Princess bronzer that I got in my Ipsy bag (also mentioned in my July Favorites) my blush is Milani’s “American Beauty Rose” from their limited edition blushes (that can be bought online right now on the Milani website!) and my highlight is Colourpop’s “Spoon.” Everything was set with Urban Decay’s all nighter spray, because I was going to the park. Melting makeup is not a cute look.

IMG_8276

My brows are my usual: Milani’s pomade in “dark brown” set with Nyx’s brow mascara in “black” and then I faked some hairs with my Ofra universal brown pencil in the front of my brows.

I primed my eyes with my Too Faced shadow insurance and then took “mourning” by Shiro Cosmetics in my crease as a transition shade. I then added “nymph” (a brick red also by Shiro) and “dirty” by My Pretty Zombie and just layered and blended to create a neat effect. I’ve really been loving using several shades in the crease.

I put Colourpop’s “Bae” on my lid…and now I don’t really know why since I just put a shit ton of glitter over it. I then sprayed my brush a bit and put on Lunatick Labs “Ghouls Gold” glitter on my lids. Because I’m dramatic and wanted more glitter, I added Nyx’s “platinum” roll on glitter to my lids by putting some on a brush and dabbing it on.

Liner is NYC’s black liquid liner. I’ve been using this liner constantly lately. I feel like I’ve finally figured out the brush, and the formula of this liner is stellar. It’s super black, and dries matte. It’s a new favorite of mine.

IMG_8214

Lashes are the same demi lashes that I got off ebay that I can’t stop using. I lined my water line with Wet n Wild’s “Mink brown” and blended it out with mourning, nymph, and dirty. I put dirty closest to my water line though to add a bit of dimension. Inner corner highlight is Colourpop’s “Swan”

My lips are lined with Nyx’s “Orchid” and topped with Lunatick Labs “Cinderhella” This shade is a beautiful deep berry color. I’m in love with it. I will say that the gold glitter and lipstick were sent to me, but I am in no way pressured to post about it or create a post. I’ve used a lot of things from Lunatick in the past, and I saw on Instagram that they were sending out little packages to a lot of people, no matter how many followers they had. I thought it was the coolest thing in the world, and I wish more companies were more worried about honest reviews than reaching out to only big bloggers and youtubers. And not for products or anything, but only because companies should want a variety of reviews for new products from several demographics. Just my opinion though.

Well, that was my coffee date night look! I hope you all enjoyed this look, and as always, thanks for reading if you made it this far! I know I can be pretty detailed in these posts. If there’s anything you’re wondering about, please feel free to ask!

Have a lovely day, beauties.

Swatch Video: J.Cat Beauty Liptitude 24/7 Lip StainsWIld

jcat lipstick

Hey loves,

I uploaded a video to my Youtube channel last night! I think Friday may become my upload day? I dunno, still working on it. Anyway, I did a review + lip swatches of 5 out of 14 of the new J.Cat Beauty hydrating lip stains.

A few quick things:

These are highly pigmented.

They are semi matte.

The red ones do stain.

I love the heck out of this formula and the colors I swatched.

I bought all of these myself, except for the two that I got off Ipsy, but I also pay for that subscription every month.

The more I try from J.Cat Beauty, the more impressed I am. This formula is awesome, and until the August 1st you can get 25% off on these on their site.

Please watch my video and let me know what you think and if you like lip swatch videos!

Coming next week: Swatches of the Wet n Wild “High Flying Colors” palette

I’ve been to one of dream cities, Paris. I do want to travel through Ireland with just a camera and a backpack.

3.Would you rather only ever use mascara or only ever use concealer?

The community! I’ve made a few friends blogging and I truly love finding supportive and empowering people. I have loved reading about people’s lives and their journeys. I love everything about blogging, honestly.

My mother. If I can become half the parent and woman she is, I will feel satisfied with my life. Maybe that’s cliche, but I am very close to my mom. She had 3 kids by the time she was 19 years old and since then has been an incredible mother, wife, and now has a blossoming career. She is incredibly strong and beautiful in every sense.

Hey, I’ve Posted 200 Times Now

IMG_4791

Hey everyone,

While I was brainstorming for ideas and replying to comments, I noticed that I have posted 200 posts on my blog! Well, once this post goes up it will be 200, but you know what I mean. That’s a lot of typing, and because I do reviews and stuff it’s been a lot of swatching and looking at lipstick stain tattoos grace my arms for almost a year now. It’s actually a joke with my family now, they’re always expecting to see some lipstick on my arms. They’re my “temporary tattoos.”

When I started this blog, I didn’t really have a purpose. I posted here and there and had no schedule. I was feeling down and very depressed. My anxiety was inhibiting me from leaving many days and I just felt like something had to give. When I brought up the idea of blogging mostly about makeup and beauty to my mom, she agreed that it might be good for me to have a creative outlet. It would give me something that is solely “mine” and would give me some consistency in the midst of the total chaos that is being a mom of two very small children.

To say that blogging has essentially saved my life in some ways is an understatement. I feel like I have a voice now. I have ever made friends, which if you read my post about my friendships (and lack thereof) the past few years, you will know that it’s a big deal for me. I absolutely love the blogging community as a whole. Sure, there are some negative areas, but most of the areas have brought nothing but positivity into my life. I consider each of you my friend.

Blogging isn’t just for my own self gain though. I truly adore and appreciate every single person that follows me and supports me. I can’t count the times I have caught myself smiling at a comment someone has left, and I have even been in tears at times. Good tears. The happy kind that reinforce that I do have a small place on the internet. A place to show the passion for makeup and pretty colors since I was a toddler. I have loved watching all of your blogs, if you have one, grow.

So, for my 200th post, I wanted to write out how grateful I am for every person reading this now. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. You have all helped me climb out of one of the darkest places I have been in. I’m sure that if my daughters could fully grasp what was going on with me a year ago and see the difference now, they would be thanking you all as well. I’m in a way better place now than I was a year ago. I still have a lot to work on, but I will continue to cope and try to be better for my kids sakes.

I love blogging. I’m still a very small blogger, but that’s okay with me. Numbers do not concern me. I told myself in the beginning that I will always prefer 200 people following me that read and engage with me than 2,000 that do not any day. I still mean that. Even if I stopped blogging tomorrow, I would still buy lipstick. I would still be reading your posts and ogling over your makeup collections. So, I might as well just continue to type it out.

Here’s to 200 posts, and to 200 more. I don’t plan on stopping any time soon. Thank you to every single person that follows me, likes my posts, retweets my tweets on twitter. You are all so special, and I just wanted to express that in a short post today.

You have all had a deep impact on my life, whether you know it or not.

Have a good day.

-Kayla

Face of the Day: Elf Cosmetics

elf contour palette

Hey beauties,

Today I have another Face of the Day post, but there’s also a video tutorial on it! A little bit ago I posted a video about my top 10 favorite Elf products and I wanted to follow that up with a video using mostly Elf products. I used a few of my old favorites, and a few new favorites.

I even used and talked more about the new Elf contour palette!

elf contour palette

Isn’t it lovely? In short, I really like this palette so far and I think Elf did a great job with it!

For this tutorial, I did a very dark brown smokey eye…the kind of smokey eye my mom likes to refer to as “bedroom eyes.” Ha! I liked the way this turned out, and it would make my day if anyone that wants to watch it would and let me know what you think about it!

I know I’ve done a lot of bronzey and neutral looks lately, and I promise I will sit down soon and do something a little more colorful. Also, all of the products and brushes used are listed in the description under the video! If anyone has any questions or wants to know my thoughts on anything in particular, please feel free to ask! I promise that on Mondays I am too tired to bite.

Have a great Monday!
