:: Recent(ish) Buys ::

Hello Everyone! 
Because I went to pick up a few things from my drugstore yesterday, I thought I'd make a post of some of my recent buys. Some of these I only got yesterday so I haven't even got a chance to try, and some I got a few weeks ago (I think). So recentish. If I haven't tried it yet, I will let you know. 
And sorry for the crappy photo quality. It looked good, so I don't know what happened to it.

1: Elf Blush in Twinkle Pink. It is lighter then it is in the photo. I've heard about elf before, but I've never tried any of their products and when I saw a display for it, I thought I would try something. I have almost no blushes so I grabbed one of those. I haven't tried it yet, but I really like the packaging! It even has a little mirror inside. This was $3.99.

2: Avon Festive Flavors Lip Balm in Gingerbread. I tried a Halloween version of this and really liked it, so I thought that I would try a Christmas one. I got it a while ago but I still haven't opened it because I'm waiting until closer to Christmas. It has really cute packaging and I got it for only 69¢.

3: Annabelle Big Show Nail Polish in Party Red-Y. I saw this in a clearance bin and thought that I would give it a try because I like the color, but I haven't tried it yet. It was $1.99.

4: The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain. I am subscribed to the Body Shop's emails, and as soon as I saw this I knew I had to get it! The packaging is SO cute. I have been using it as a cheek stain and it actually works really well because it is not to dark. It was around $15.00.

5: L'oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black. I have heard really good reviews of this mascara and I thought that I would give it a try. I used it this morning and it seemed good, but I can't really say anything about it yet. It was around $9.00.

6: L'oreal Paris Sublime Fresh Purifying Cleanser Mousse. I saw this in a magazine and I thought that I'd try it out. I haven't used it yet so I can't really say how it is yet. It was around $12.00.
I hope that you guys didn't mind me ranting to much!

Have you tried any of these? What do you think of them?

:: Holiday Gift Guide: For The Cat Lover ::


Hello! 

Because it is almost the holidays, I've decided to make a gift guide. Also, I decided to make it so early because of shipping times.

I wanted to make a cat themed guide because I am sometimes a crazy cat lady!

What do you think of this post? Would you like more?

:: Bee and Puppycat Plushie Pt. 2 ::


Hello everyone!
Last time I made a Bee Plushie, so today I am making a puppycat one.

If you want a pattern, just let me know and I would be happy to make one.

Materials:

-White felt (mine was sparkly)
-Tan felt
-Light pink felt
-Yellow felt
-Matching thread
-Stuffing

1) Sew all of the tan pieces onto the body
2) Sew the collar onto the body.
3) Embroider the eyes and the mouth.

4) Sew on the back and stuff him up! 

Also, when I made my last post, some people had never heard of or seen Bee and Puppycat, which is totally understandable. Yesterday I found this picture that totally sums it up.
