LUSH Haul!!

Hello Lovelies,

Recently I got really ill, so I took a trip down to LUSH handmade cosmetics for a few pick me ups! I wanted to show you what I got, and I'll be reviewing some of the items soon.

First off, are some lip products. 


What its supposed to do:
It's supposed to pick up and take away dead skin on your lips and exfoliate. 

How to Use: Take a bit less than the size of a pea, dab it on your top and bottom lip and press together. Then lick it all off!

I've already dove into it as you can see, and it's amazing. It makes my lips feel uber soft, and it tastes so good! I can't get enough of it. Because you use so little each time, $10 is so worth every use.


I was a little skeptic on getting this, as it looks super dark, but on my lips it isn't strong at all. It smells great and leaves my lips soft, and it's light and not heavy like normal lipstick. The only con however, is that it doesn't last very long. Overall I love it!

In person, its a lot redder, rather than orange.

Next I bought some bath bombs! 

 Above is PINK, which is Audrey Hepburn inspired. As soon as I got home from the mall, I popped this sucker in the tub.

Below is Dragon's Egg, which I have not yet tried, but I am super excited too. It smells like a tart candy, so I kind of want to eat it. Haha!

Lastly we have a lotion that has recently been added to Lush's collection.

This is called Charity Pot. Now what I love about this is with every tub you purchase, large or small, EVERY penny goes to your choice of charity. For my particular pot, the money goes to an organization that specializes in Animal Abuse.  You can read on about The Ghost In Our Machine charity here.
I love this lotion already, as it isn't super thick and my skin soaks it up immediately. It smells like Coco Butter, and gives a smooth finish after shaving. 

I'll certainly have a full Bath Bomb review at the end of the week when I have my pamper day and use up the Dragon's Egg. :)

Stay Fab,

Review Mania! ♡

Hello lovelies! Sorry for the long absence, I got bit by the flu bug! :(

I have a few items I've tried recently and I wanted to help you out and give reviews.


  • Goes on smooth
  • Moisturizing 
  • Semi-conforms to skin color
  • Cheap

  • Small Bottle :(
  • Doesn't do all 8 of the things promised

I love this product sosososos much!! It's fantastic! It's perfect for people who need a lighter coverage. It acts sort of like a concealer too, with a bonus of moisturizer. 
Because it's Winter, my skin has become dry and flaky, and with an application of this, it moisturizes my skin and I don't look like a mess throughout the day!
Because of the flakiness of my skin, I can't wear foundation because it accentuates the flakes, so this works awesome in place of my foundation with powder on top!  FLAWLESS LOOK! However it does not do some of what the commercial promises, and I'd say this product is not an actual BB creme. It's more of a tinted moisturizer SO KEEP THAT IN MIND!




  • Long Stem
  • Easy & Swift Application
  • Comes with lots of liner


  • Dissipates
  • Takes long to dry

I got this in a gift set and I have a love/hate relationship with it. It's SO EASY to apply and that's saying something for someone who has such an unsteady hand. Although, it takes awhile to dry and you need to apply a few coats for a dark line. If you're new to makeup, I recommend this for you!



Specific Color Review:


  • So cute and girly!
  • Shimmery
  • Sheer

Bad: N/A

General Lipstick:


  • Smooth
  • Long Lasting
  • Smells Awesome
  • Lots of product
  • Moisturizing

Bad: N/A

I picked this product up on a whim and I'm so glad I did! I love it so much because there's literally nothing wrong with it. I've never tried any other colors, but I'll be sure too soon because this product is fabulous. I use it everyday!




  • Pigmented
  • Shimmery
  • Lasts Long
  • Smooth Application

Bad: N/A

I got this as a gift too, and I love it so much! It lasts almost all day and its a great product for a neutral look and also for beginners. I use it everyday!


I hope this was helpful too all!

Fall in Love: Almond Oil

Hello lovelies!

If you have dry skin or an uneven skin tone all over, then I've got the solution for you!

Almond Oil is taken from bitter almonds and used widely in skin and hair care.
It contains Vitamin E which moisturizers and tones.

Anyway, so I found some in my pantry and it was hardly used so I took it out. It smelled lovely and then while smelling it I accidentally spilled it on my hands!
It immediately absorbed into my skin and made my hands super soft and smell great! I then put them on my arms and legs and they have never been happier!
Save your money on expensive lotions!

I've always had an uneven color on my legs, but with using the Almond Oil, they've really evened out.

Now, you MUST use 100% PURE oil, because otherwise the oil will contain a harsh alcohol that will dry out your skin even more!
DO NOT: Put this on your face! It will become red and blotchy!!!!!!!! It only works on arms, legs, and hands!

I hope this works for you, let me know if it does!

23 January 2013; OOTD

Hello lovelies!

Today I just wanted to give you an inside look into my style. I'm more of a casual "street style" kind of girl, but sometimes I like to jazz things up a bit with something from girly to indie. It all depends on the weather for my decision on duds. Today it was somewhat chilly here in L.A., so I was cloaked in an

I love this outfit because of the edginess provided by the jacket, shoes, and beanie. This outfit totally says "Don't mess with me, or my sense of fashion." 

I hope you all like it and I hope to bring you more OOTD's in the future if you like!

Fall in Love: Creepers

Hello lovelies! You may or may not have heard of the classic goth platform shoes that are commonly called Creepers.

Now, don't let the eerie name fool you, these shoes are actually really cute! They fit into a multitude of styles like: 

  • Lolita
  • Grunge
  • Indie
  • Kawaii
  • Punk
  • Goth
There are a few brands that make these versatile shoes, but my favorite is Demonia.
According to Wikipedia, "Creepers or brothel creepers are a type of shoe.
They found their beginnings in the years following World War II, as soldiers based in the deserts in North Africa wore suede boots with hard-wearing crepe (rubber) soles because of the climate and environment. Having left the army, many of these ex-soldiers found their way to the nightspots of London wearing the same crepe-soled shoes and these became known as "brothel creepers".
In the late 1950s, these shoes were taken up by the Teddy Boys along with drainpipe trousers, draped jackets, bolo tiesquiff andpompadour haircuts, and velvet or electric blue clothes. This style of shoe was developed in 1949 by George Cox and marketed under the "Hamilton" name, based on George Cox Jr.'s middle name.[1]
The brothel creeper regained popularity in the early 1970s when Malcolm McLaren sold them from his "Let it Rock" shop inLondon's Kings Road. Teddy Boys were the obvious customers,[clarification needed] but the brothel creeper still proved to be popular among regular customers[2] when McLaren and his partner Vivienne Westwood changed the shop to more rocker-oriented fashion.
The shoe has since been adopted by subcultures such as indieskapunk, new wavers, psychobillygreasers and goth, JapaneseVisual Kei, and was noted[by whom?] as the footwear of choice of Bananarama."

These shoes are a staple in my wardrobe, so much as I own two pairs of them!
I own the top two pairs, and I LOVE them! But the styles of creepers are not limited to those you see here, there is an unlimited amount of styles and heights you can snatch.

Black 2 inch Demonia Seude Creepers from eBay  $73
White 1 inch Demonia Leather Creepers from a Charity Shop $81

Don't let the 2 inch ones scare you! They are as big as you make them out to be. I'm 5'10 so with my black ones I am a total height of 6'!!! If you're tall like me then I recommend the shorter ones as the thick ones are sort of "loud" so to speak. However, that's my opinion, but if you want the thicker ones then go right ahead! You'll look fabulous either way. :) 

These shoes will definitely be a statement piece! REMEMBER, if someone says something bad about your new platforms, remind them that you can step on them if they persist! LOL.

If you want, I'll even make a "How I style" post. :o

A Fun Way to Express Your Style!

Hello readers,

Now the website I am about to talk about is well known, but if you don't know about it I highly recommend you hurry up and make an account!

Polyvore is an interactive website where you can string together items to make what you call a set that expresses any style you want!

It's also sort of like a social networking website. You can comment and like sets, follow and message people, and even join contest groups and get sizzling prizes! Socializing, creating, and scoring sweet things is fab isn't it?

Don't feel like creating things or that isn't your style? There's no need to worry! A really cool thing about Polyvore is that not only can you make things, but you can use it to shop! You type in any keywords, for example "denim jacket" and they will give you THOUSANDS of listings of denim jackets with the website they are from and price. You can filter out certain aspects like color and price as well.

I found the cutest shoes by using Polyvore, and I am sure I will find loads of nice things to come.
Follow me: totestiffany

Here are some sets I've made:
