Taylor Swift Wonderstruck perfume Review!

When it comes to perfumes, I am very picky! I get headaches very easily from being around a person who is wearing a nauseating perfume. During the Sephora Freinds and Family sale I decided to order Taylor Swift's perfume and give it a whirl. For some reason, I just had a feeling that she had good taste in perfume. As opposed to other celebrities who I feel like their perfume's are probably not my taste. For example, I feel like Jennifer Aniston's perfume (which I have not smelled) would be too "old" for me. I like youthful perfumes. Not too sweet and candy-ish but still YOUNG. Last thing I want to smell like is an old woman! (not that Jennifer Aniston is old)Also Mariah Carey, I would be hesitant to try hers. She seems like a bit of a wild card. Can't trust her taste in perfume. But Taylor Swift seems trustworthy in the perfume department!

Here is a list of other perfumes I like to give you an idea of my taste in scents:
Donna Karen SUMMER
Armani Mania Summer
Paris Hilton's first perfume "Paris Hilton"

These are my most worn pefumes.

One perfume I cannot STAND is CHANEL. I love me some Chanel but good god that perfume is aweful.

If I were to describe WONDERSTRUCK, I would say there is definitely a hint of vanilla in there. I normally shy away from Vanilla scents because they bore me. This one, like I said has a HINT. The rest is a bit floraly with youthfullness and sophistication. It's not annoying, but not serious. It's very warm and cozy. Kind of Christmas-y to me for some reason. But light at the same time.

I read this comment on a website and it made me laugh...

The article was about what to do on a first date...

Climb the highest tree you can find together and compile photo evidence of your trip to the top.

While already out, randomly propose going into a bookstore and slipping dirty notes into books for new readers.

Dress up as lame superheroes and stop at least one petty crime “ie. jaywalking, littering….”

Build forts out of furniture and blankets, and wage war with paper airplanes.

Try and visit as many people as you can in one night, and turn as many things inside their apartment upside down as you can, without them noticing.

Pack a bag for the weekend with seasonable clothes and supplies for two days. Get tickets on standby for the next flight to the first place that intrigues you and stay there for the weekend.

Write a short story together at a table outside of a Starbucks. As for help from other patrons when you get stuck.

Spend the day dressed to impress test-driving super expensive sports cars.

Do the lamest tourist thing in your area that you have both secretly wanted to do forever. Have an unabashed good time. Document with photo evidence.

Talk your way into getting the chef at your favorite restaurant to create a meal that's complete unique just for the two of you.

Improvise short dramas in front of security cameras.

Wake up at midnight. Drive all night to the closest beach and watch the sunrise to begin your weekend down the shore. Sleep all day, party all night.

Meet up in a city that neither of you have been to and check in the same hotel as a married couple using fake names. Make up a backstory about how you met and what you're there for an see how well you can improvise funny stories and anecdotes while socializing with complete strangers.

Go to a minor league baseball game under the stars. Tell each other stories about how bad you are at athletics. Randomly cheer for both teams. Eat lots of Cracker Jacks.

Buy some sidewalk chalk and walk around the city writing fortune cookie messages on the ground.

Rent a bad 70's kung fu movie. Turn the volume all the way down and make up your own script as it plays.

Mystic Mermaid Makeup Transformation

I've been really into costume makeup lately and my friend Tori loves having her makeup done so we've planned out a bunch of looks to do for my YouTube channel! I know some people are disappointed because they ONLY want drawing videos... but I love art in many forms. Drawing just happens to be one of them. I will always be doing drawing videos but it's nice to change it up every so often! Eventually I also want to do painting videos too!

So here is the makeup look I did on Tori as a "Mystic Mermaid". Took me a long time because I didn't really plan out what I wanted to do, I just played it by ear. I used mostly my new BH Cosmetics palette. I love it! So pigmented! Although, I feel like I'm going to run out of certain colors very quickly. Hope you guys enjoy! :-)

Alloy.com Haul & Review!

I work as a waitress type person and we are required to wear black pants to work. Mine are at least 7 years old and so I thought it was time for an upgrade. I didn't want to spend tons of money on designer pants because they're for work and they're gonna get dirty. But at the same time I wanted something cute that I could wear on a regular basis if I felt like it! Being a 6 ft tall girl has more downsides that it has upsides!! One of them being, it is extremely hard to find pants that are long enough for me, or just fit me right! Alloy.com offers 37 inch inseams for most of their pants and jeans. It is amazing! I hope they never get rid of that option! I had purchased two pairs of pants from Alloy years before and I still love them for not only their long length but their comfiness and style!! So I decided to go on alloy.com and see if I could find a good pair of work pants there. I ended up with 3 pairs of pants in my shopping cart. One pair of dark blue skinny jeans, one pair of black pants for work, and one pair of velour sweat pants... all 37 inch inseams! I have a tendency to buy my pants too big all the time so I went for a size 7 this time to make sure they wouldn't get too loose throughout the day like most of my other pants. I was worried that I wouldn't fit into a size 7 but I received them in the mail yesterday and all three pairs fit like a glove!! I am so happy I ended up ordering these pants from Alloy! If you are a tall girl like me... do yourself a favor and buy your pants there. Inexpensive, decent quality, and long as hell!!!! Oh and not to mention CUTE.

Here are the "Revolt Dark Destroyed Skinny Dark Blue Denim jeans":

Cute butt detail right!?

-me trying to show how long the jeans are on me lol :)

- LONG!!! YESS!!!
Love the white stitching!

These are the "Twill Flap Bootcut Black" Pants. Although, they look much more like bell-bottoms than bootcut to me. =-| I still love 'em! They are PERFECT for my job.

--standing on my tippy toes to show how LONG these pants are!

And lastly, these are the "Velour Drawstrong Pant Black". I bought these in a medium. Anyone who sees me in these pants would probably say "They fit you perfectly" and they do but for ME-- I like sweatpants to be a big baggier in the butt crotch, thigh area... na' mean? =D So if I could go back in time, I would have actually bought these velour pants in a LARGE. I think I'll keep these though to wear out when I don't feel like dressing nicely lol. Most of my other sweatpants are not "socially acceptable". But they're comfy so I'm keeping them! STFU!

They are all wrinkly because I had literally JUST taken them out of the bag they arrived in before taking the pics!

Here is a link to Alloy.com where all these pants were bought!

Well, that's all I have to haul for now!

So my friend and I were hanging out and we decided to do her makeup like a Vampiress and film it! I wasn't sure if my subscribers would like me uploading something different from drawing, but I got a pretty good response. My makeup skills aren't the best, and I don't have the best, or a lot of makeup but I want to keep doing makeup videos! They are fun! I want to do a handful of Halloween tutorials. I absolutely love watching makeup artists transform themselves into Halloween creatures! Hope you enjoy!!!
