Tweeze Me, Baby!

Hello Lovelies!

I AM ON A ROLL! Its because I'm sick and my nose is like a faucet that just won't shut off. And I kind of have a hang on my school work. Note the "kind of". There is a reason they say over half the people in my chem class will fail and/or change their major.

But I have to blog about my new favorite product!



A couple weeks ago I got my last paycheck and I am kinda broke and can't keep getting my brows waxed. And though I love hearing "Oh your eyebrow color so pretty" and "You do great job with makeup on eye!" it can add up. About $10 bucks a visit (including tip).

So I figured it was time to invest in a good pair of tweezers. I've been using a pair from Revlon and I must say, I have never been a fan. They are so wide and grab like a thousand hairs at once. And I can't sneak into the forest of eyebrow hair to just pluck out THAT ONE hair that is sticking out and uber long.

But then I got my "big girl" Tweezers. Tweezerman Tweezers. I have always wanted a pair but the price! $20 for tweezers?! But when I saw that the fabulous Betsey Johnson was gracing Tweezerman, that was it. Granted these were $25 but that extra 5 bucks is worth it for the cuteness.

These babies are perfect! They get right in! They get THE WHOLE hair. My crap ones wouldn't get the whole hair, it'd like pinch off the top half. These get the damn root.

I geek out when I'm like "DAMN LOOK AT THE ROOT ON THAT ONE" (I'm a Forensics major, hair is interesting).

And think about it, a pair of Tweezers that will last forever (and they even sharpen them for free!) for $25. That's 2.5 waxing! Yeah, 0.5 meaning only one brow. Amazing! And painless!

Love, love, love these!

Have your ever tried Tweezerman tweezers? Will Betsey Johnson's design draw you in to finally splurging!

PS: I got the Rose one (my camera is dead! Photo is from Sephora)

New Digs

Hello Lovelies!

Oh, how I want to do a beauty post! But alas I am sick! With some kind of virus that makes me miserable and want to sleep all day. And coughing extremely hard and painful coughs. And losing my voice. It has not been fun.

And between nose blows, I'm doing homework! It is insane how much homework I have! I suppose that is the life of a science major? Just alone for chemistry I have about 6 hours of work! It has been a lot! I am juggling chem, bio and pre-calc now. I need to stay on top of things since I changed my major so late!

Anyways, what do you think of the site revamp? Took me FOREVER to center the damn thing. And I'm pissed that no matter what, the background will not anchor. Not a fan. Oh well, I now have a template but this place needed a new light!

Review: Bath & Body Works' Dark Kiss

So I was thinking just now, what would be more fun then writing a lab report? A lot of things came to mind, including this post! I mean I am very good student and totally did 85% of my work! The remaining is the lab report and some problems to do in my study group.

I wanted to review Bath and Body Works' (BBW) newest scent, "Dark Kiss". It just sounds sexy. And I have to admit in the colder months I like a sexy, sultry scent. A little musk and vanilla? Yes, please!


And Dark Kiss is not only sexy and sultry but it has a bit of sweetness. Like "I smell so damn seductive but wait, smell that? That's my sweet innocent side". AH-MAZING.

I am horrible at describing smells so I'll let BBW describe the notes:
  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Incense, Mirabelle Plum, Black Raspberry
  • Mid Notes: Amber, Burgundy Rose, Geranium, Peony
  • Base Notes: Dark Vanilla Bean, Labdanum, Vetiver, Sensual Balsam, Musks
And if you're me, you're like ooooooookay. WAIT THEY MILKED AN AMBER?! Just take my word, its freaking sexy but still sweet. Its seductive but not too much. It has an initial POW impact but then it settles down to linger gently on your skin. Still noticeable but less so. But when someone is close to you, and I mean close, the seduction of the scent comes back.

I bought mine during the Buy 3 Get 2. And got the shower gel, bubble bath, fragrance mist, body lotion, shea butter hand cream, and the triple moisturizing shower cream.

So I'll break it down!

Shower Gel: I'm sorry LUSH lovers, but nothing beats a BBW shower gel. There. I said it. Give me a good pink loofa and a bottle of BBW shower gel. Not a bar of hippie soap. The lather is amazing, suds everywhere! Its so hydrating and amazing and the scent just from this will linger all day. Beautiful lather, love love love.

Bubble Bath: I don't do bubble baths but because my legs are freakishly long I find myself shaving them while sitting on the side of the tub. TMI? Oh well, just something tall girls do...or maybe just me. Anywhozie. I like to have bubbles to soak me feet in and this is just eeeh. Great, great scent but the bubbles were eeeh. Not that much.

Fragrance Mist: Starts very strong but slowly calms down. Take a couple seconds between sprays because you may do too much! I love to spray it in my hair. Nothing like letting my hair down and whoooosh, sexy smell!

Body Lotion: I buy so much body lotion and never use it. But I've been using this and OMG, AMAZING. My skin is getting so soft and silky and awesome. I love the reformulation, it works so well! I wasn't really into lotion but this has changed my mind!

Shea Butter Hand Cream: A thicker version of the lotion but again SKIN IS AMAZING AND SOFT! I know in the fall and winter when the temperature drops my hands will crack and bleed! But this is doing a great job for now!

Triple-Moisturizing Shower Cream: I seriously asked the SA what the heck this was! It is basically an in shower lotion. He said its great for days when my skin is extra dry. Hmm. Hydrated a little better than the shower gel but what do I love it for? Shaving cream! I've been shaving my legs with it and it was perfect.

Overall? LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Perfect fall scent! Or perfect sexy/sweet scent! Highly recommend it! Have/will you try it? ;)

School and the City

Hello Lovelies!

I finally went to the city (NYC) by myself today! AH! My school's city campus is Downtown (I live in my school's Metro NYC campus) so I figured I'd explore. Yeah, I think I was in my school for ooooh 2 minutes. I just went through it to get a juice and to get to the subway on the other side. Hahaha!

So my original plan was to explore the area around my school but instead I decided to go uptown to 5th Ave. And 5th is HUGE!! Totally day dreamed when I passed every boutique! Especially Louis Vuitton, oh how one day I'd live their Speedy 30 in Damier Ebene!!

But enough with that!! I went to a few places that I kind of could afford! First was Juicy Couture where I had an awesome "Friends & Family 30% off" coupon! Yippie!! (BTW my POS phone decided not to send my pics to my photo account so these are all from or something like that)

World's Largest Juicy!

2 floors of awesomeness, and beautifully decorated! Chandeliers and twisting cast-iron stairs! I ended up getting a gorgeous scarf for about half off! It was 20% off plus my additional 30%!! So many pretty things there!


And that pic is crap so here is the pic from Zappos of it!


Next I went to MAC. I only go to MAC Counters, never been to a store! The one I went to was on 56th I believe (Juicy was on 52nd? Or 53rd?) But it was a store attached to a Henry


I got some basics, barely have any "All That Glitters" left (like I'm seriously scraping the sides!!!) and almost out of my HG liner "Penultimate Rapidblack" and needed a new great all over color and the MA recommended "Gleam".

Finally I had to hit the bank and what was next to my Chase?! WELL SEPHORA, OF COURSE! Only got a Korres Lip butter, heard so many good things!!! Korres was there today so they had free gifts with purchases!





Gleam is like a pink triplet of "All That Glitters" and "Naked Lunch", loove! And love the subtle dark tint the lip butter gives me! I'll try to get some reviews up! I've been so swamped with homework already!! Bio, Chem and Pre-Calc are insane!! Why am I doing them all at once?! Oh yeah, I wanna graduate on time!!

BTW I so mastered the subways! Kinda...need more practice!

Dorm: Junior Year!

I've noticed that every year I blog about my dorm room! And I think this year is my favorite! I opted for the smaller part of the room (but I get a full closet) and I love how small and cozy it is!! Same room as last year.

Pretty much every thing is from Target or Bed, Bath and Beyond! Except my awesome pink lamp on the fridge which is from JCP :)




And my view...
