Daisy Dukes for Summer

Hello lovelies!

I've been intending to get a pair of daisy dukes for this summer. I've been seeing them everywhere lately and to be honest I didn't want to get left behind.  Kindly sent me one pair!
These are their Destroy Effect Denim Shorts in dark blue, they are very comfy to wear them, you don't even have to break them in. Must warn that if you intend to get them go a size up! I'm usually a medium, but these run a bit small, I check with the measurements they offer on their page, and decided to order the large size, and they fit fantastic

The shorts are only $14.90 and being honest they are a steal. I've seen similar items in stores for a much higher price tag and crappy quality. So I definitely recommend to get these shorts

My Perfume Collection

Hello lovelies!

Today I wanted to share with you my perfume collection. I don't think I have an overly huge collection, but it is decent, I have everything I need.

I want to talk first about my setting. as you can see it sits on the on my dresser. The tray I actually found it at goodwill for $2! I don't even think it's meant for perfumes since I found it within the food tray container section. But it does the job perfectly and it's the perfect size. It holds exactly all the my perfume bottles. 

So, in no particular order here are all of my perfumes.

Viva la Juicy by Juicy Couture
This is my favorite perfume of all time. I don't use it everyday because I want to finish first some other perfumes I don't like so much. I have to say this is the longest lasting perfume in my collection. I can still smell it on me even the day after after I wake up.

Pink Sugar by Aquolina

Another of my favorite ones. This one smells straight up like cotton candy. Very sweet and I like it for everyday use.

Meow! by Katy Perry
If anything comes in a pink cat bottle I'm sold. I bought this without knowing how it smelled, and so glad I did because it is great for both night and day.

Secrets to Keep by Avon
Honestly this perfume is the one I've been wearing the most these days, but it's one of my least favorites. I've been trying to use it up. I only bought it because a coworker was selling Avon, but there is nothing extraordinary about this perfume. It smells very similar to Fantasy by Britney Spears.

Ralph by Ralph Lauren
I highly recommend this perfume for the summer. One of my best friends from college used this perfume and loved it the minute she let me put on some. I feel fresh, clean and like I'm on a beach getaway whenever I wear this.

Betsey Johnson by Betsey Johnson
Boyfriend gave me this without smelling it first. I hadn't smelled this before either, but I'm glad he bought it because it is a great scent for a night out.

Paris Hilton by Paris Hilton
My least favorite of the bunch. You know how perfume smells different on everyone. I didn't believe in that until I got this bottle. One of my cousins used to wear this and she smelled amazing with this. Well I purchased it for myself and it smells terrible on me. I don't use it ever, so it is just using space on my perfume tray.

Wild at Heart from Victoria's Secret Pink
Body spray I like to use for post-workout.
Pure Seduction from Victoria's Secret

Another post-workout body spray. I like this one the least because it stains my shirts.

Extras in my perfume tray
On the left I have the Tonymoly bunny pocket face mist. I don't use it as much, but it looks so cute next to the Katy Perry Perfume. On the right I have a refillable perfume bottle with atomizer. I found it at goodwill for super cheap, it looks so chic.
I believe this one is from Avon too. My grandpa has this thing for buying all the girls in the family avon products, so he gave me this on a Christmas present.

That's it for my perfume collection. What's your favorite perfume from your collection?

Physicians Formula Nude Wear Natural Blush

Hello lovelies!

In one of my not-so-recent trips to the drugstore I stumbled upon a pretty Physicians Formula stand with new produtcts. 
The Physicians Formula Nude Wear Collection features bronzers, blushers, face powders and concealers all with natural looking finishes.

I picked up the blush in the Natural shade because I thought it would complement my skintone better than the other one. I can't remember the exact name of the color shade, but it was a pink with blue undertone and I know for sure those look bad on me.

Packaging is cute, the main reason why I bought it, but once I opened it it was kind of a dissapoinment because it is mostly cardboard with thin plastic. It has a mirror and a brush, which can come in handy if you decide to carry this on your purse. However it is cardboard, hence it wont last too long.
Blended and un-blended

Another thing of dissapoinment is that in the packaging the blush looks like it was a bit of sparkly sheen. But it is just an overspray, once you wear it once, that overspray is gone and you are left with a matte blush.
Not much of a difference

I get that this is meant to be natural looking (read sheer), so I can't really complain on the lack of pigmentation. If you really want it to show up you must pack on it, but warning, it ends up looking rather chalky.

Overall I don't recommend buying this product, unless you are barely starting with makeup and want something very natural.
