Fizzbanger Lush Bath Bomb Review

I bought the Fizzbanger bath bomb on my last trip to Lush because it smelled soooo freaking good! I couldn't quite place the smell but once it was in the bath I knew right away that it was definitely apples. The scent filled the bathroom instantly and was such a delight. 
Not only that, but the scent and color literally changed before my eyes!
It starts out as apple scented and changes to a spicy cinnamon toffee (that's what the website says anyway. I thought it was apples to something like lemons, but after reading I realized that it was definitely more of a cinnamon smell). 

The colors are amazing!! When you first put it in the water it bursts into a fizzy bright yellow color with specks of red. Once it's been in there for quite some time it turns blue, which leads to the overall green color. And to my surprise there was a little message awaiting me in the water. This bath bomb goes out with a BANG! (Literally) 

The smell is amazing.
The color is beautiful.
It fizzes for minutes!
This is my new favorite bath bomb ever!!!

Wreck This Journal

I've got a bit of a different post for you guys today, but I hope you like it! 
I first started my Wreck This Journal because one of my favorite YouTubers, Grav3yardgirl (bunny), did a series of video's called 'Wreck It Wednesdays' where she would do a few pages from her Wreck This Journal and also encourage her 'swamp family' to do some as well. 
I loved the idea of WTJ. I had heard of it and really wanted to try it out, so once Bunny started doing it I bought one. 
I've been working on mine for over 7 months now and I'm still not finished (as you'll see in the video. Lots of blank pages still). 

My WTJ has meant a lot to me. I get extreme anxiety sometimes that often leads to panic attacks, but I've found that doing pages from my journal helps me cope. 
If I'm feeling especially anxious, I pull out my journal and start working on a page. 
I love it!  
I've shown a few of my favorite pages here.

This journal is my artwork.
But more than that, it's my mind written on pages. 
Take a peek in my journal, and you'll find a piece of me.

Wet N Wild Mega Last Lip Color

Think Pink, Cherry Picking, Red Velvet, Cherry Bomb

One of my favorites from last month was the Think Pink lipstick, and I mentioned in a video that I really wanted to pick up a few more. Well, I did. 
And I love all of them! 
These lipsticks are great, and for the amazing price of $2 and some change I think it's worth the buy!
I would love to have every color. They are super pigmented and last forever on my lips. Even after eating and drinking, this lipstick still looks fairly nice. It definitely stains my lips a bit, which is what I like! 
 My favorites are Cherry Picking and Cherry Bomb. I can't wait to be able to wear Cherry Bomb in the fall and winter. I know I'll get a ton of use out of it because I love a dark vampy look. If you don't like (or are a bit scared of) darker colors you probably won't want to get this one. It is super dark. 
I honestly didn't mean to buy Red Velvet. I had meant to get Stoplight Red. Apparently this lipstick ended up in the wrong spot so that's how that mix up happened. It's an Orange Red, and it's really pretty. Not promising I'll wear it a ton, but I do like it. I wanted Stoplight Red because I've heard people say it's a lot like MAC's Russian Red. I'll have to pick it up sometime soon! 
I don't have any complaints! I love love love these lipsticks! So if you are on a budget and are in need of some awesome lipstick, go for these!

OOTD: Fall!

Dress-Old Navy
Floral Boots-Amazon 

The other day my husband surprised me with this dress! I was super excited and fell in love with it right away!
I guess this is my first real fall outfit, but I didn't realize it until after I did my makeup. I looked in the mirror and thought to myself, "This is definitely a fall outfit and makeup look. How unintentional of me." 
Haha :) 
I had to add a pop of color with the belt. I just wouldn't be me without it. I think the style of this dress is great for fall, and I especially love the collar. Add a necklace and you're good to go.

Who's ready for fall?? I sure am! Pumpkin Spice Latte anyone???

OOTD: Mint & Gray

Shoes-Wet Seal 

I love Mint.
I love Gray.
So I think you can guess that I love this outfit.
My favorite colors to wear are gray and mint. Not necessarily together, but this outfit gave me exactly what I wanted. 
I'm very much a hat person, and I bought this hat months ago and have worn it a lot. It's so cute and I think anyone could wear it and look amazing! 
And the mint shirt has been worn just as much! It was definitely worth the buy. :) 

Also, when I wear a hat in this style I feel like one of the girls from American Horror Story: Coven. I quite like it. 
I'm so excited for the new season of AHS! Anyone else? :D

My Antique Vanity Table

Recently I have been shopping at a lot of different antique shops, and I have been finding the most wonderful things. 
One of them happens to be my vanity table. I love stumbling upon little treasures, and this one was quite a big treasure. I have no idea what kind of vanity this is, or how old it is. All I know is that it is totally unique.
I had been wanting a vanity table, and I really wanted to go vintage after reading a blog post by Niomi Smart. She showed a picture of her vanity and said it was vintage and I absolutely loved it, and then I became obsessed with the idea of going vintage. 

I am soooo glad I found this beauty! And not only that, but the mirror is an antique as well. 
The flowers are what caught my attention. I've never seen a more perfect mirror. 

I'm addicted to antique shopping now! How about you? Do you stop in at antique shops hoping to find a treasure of your own?

OOTD: Barbie


When I was a child I was obsessed with Barbie! I had a million and one dolls and played with them constantly. Now that she's super trendy, I couldn't be happier!
I love this top! Not only does barbie have a chic haircut, but she's also wearing a flower crown. It's just too cute! 
And Barbie wouldn't be Barbie without a pop of pink!
Paired with my favorite shoes at the moment, this outfit is as perfect as it gets. 

Is anyone else obsessed with Barbie? :D
