Sephora by OPI – S-Age is just a number

16 Oct

“S-age is just a number” is one of my favorite polishes ever!  Even though it looks more interesting in the bottle, it still looks really good on nails.  This is a really pretty gold color, with just a hint of bronze.  In the bottle it looks like it will have more blue, but the blue really only shows in the perfect light when it is on.  This polish has a really nice consistency  you could even get away with using just one coat!  I used two, mainly just out of habit :-).  Sephora by OPI is usually $9.50 at Sephora stores and on the Sephora Website. As usual, my camera couldn’t really capture the real color, so I also took a picture from the Sephora website.













PS I promise I will have some fall colors coming soon!


Mini Zoya Haul (“Megan” Polish and remover)

11 May

I got my order of Zoya Nails Polishes and remover + (2 oz)!  Here is a picture of all that I got:

Elodie, Zuza, Megan, and Remove +.  The polishes came in such a cute box!

A closer look…



Two days ago I painted my nails with Megan (see my post about how to get Megan for free at https://glamlifewithoutstrife.wordpress.com/2012/05/01/free-zoya-polish-in-megan/).  I haven’t had a chance to swatch any of the other colors, so more about them will come soon.  Here is Megan on my nails:

I love this color!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It is a little bit grayer in person, but it is still so pretty.  The Zoya formula was a bit streaky and hard to use, so I had to clean my nails up after painting them.  Other than that this color is great and totally worth buying.



Sorry this is so small!

Zoya remove + is the best polish remover ever!  I have heard so many good reviews about it, and I just had to try it, so I got the mini 2 oz. bottle.  This remover  has a mild acetone formula, didn’t smell horrible, and didn’t make my nails dry.  It took off my glitter polish very quickly.  I would defiantly recommend this to any polish lover!


This was a very successful haul!

I am so excited for spring!  Well, more like spring fashion.  One of my favorite spring stores is Areopostale.  I don’t usually like their winter stuff (except their basic sweat shirts, and great camis), but they have great essentials for spring.  I noticed that this collection has some pieces that look a lot like the Abercrombie & Fitch signature designs.


The originals



The aero versions



Here are my favorite pieces for this season:

Those are just a few of my favs! 🙂

Lately I have been loving the store Anthropologie (thanks Rebecca!).  The clothes are not really my style, but I love the mix of jewelry, home decor, and other really cute things they have their.  I recently got a set of bracelet/hair ties,  which are super cute (sorry, they are not on the web site)!  I also love the cute wall letters.  They also have cool jewelery,  which is usually in a good price range.  The thing I am most excited about (hard to choses one!) are the DIY charm necklaces.  All you do is chose a chain, then choose charms!  Here is their online necklace maker tool: http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/category/diy+charms/jewelryaccessories-charm-interactive.jsp!  Do you like Anthropologie?

Recently I have been looking at a bunch of tumblr blogs.  Tumblrs are basically blogs with a bunch of photos.  Here is one I really like: http://wonder-everyday.tumblr.com/.  Tell me if you know any other good ones!

If you are really overwhelmed by Forever 21, but like cheep clothing you might try H&M.  H&M is like an organized Forever 21, but with the same price range.  I haven’t had tons of time to shop there, mostly because I don’t live very close to one.  But, I love what I have seen!  Here are some of my fav pieces from the web site (sorry about the small pics):

$17.95 Dress

$24.95 False suede pumps

$9.95 Bracelet

$17.95 Blouse

I hope this post wasn’t to small!



Great Apps!

23 Feb

Since it is winter break I have been using my iPod touch a lot lately.  Here are my favorite games:

Temple Run- Free-   You guys probably already know about this, but I’m gonna tell you about it anyway.  I this game you run along a track, and have to jump over stuff, slide under stuff, turn corners, and a bunch of other stuff.  This game does not have levels, so you just go until you die, then you start over again.  Here is a website all about Temple run: http://www.templeruncheat.com/.

Doodle Jump- $0.99- Really fun game where you just jump on to platforms, and keeps jumping.  It doesn’t have levels.  This is one of my all time fav apps.

Tiny Tower- Free-  Really fun game!  Grow you own tower, get bitizens (people), and start businesses.

Cut the rope-$0.99 (?)- This game has levels, and basically what you do is try to get the candy to the (good) monster but cutting ropes.

Plants vs. Zombies $2.99- Use various types of plants to keep the Zombies from eating your brains.  This game is not graphic, and it is more fun than it sounds.

Lock Screen- Free or $.99- Create really cool backgrounds for your lock screen. You can even make the gray part colored!

That is only some of my favorite apps!



p.s.  No, I did not forget angry birds,  I really don;t think that game is as good as everybody says it is.
