Thrift store shopping, Catching Fire, and rice crispy treats

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend! The hubby and I spent our Saturday thrift store shopping. I love looking for vintage fashion and inspiration for home decor. Unfortunately we didn't find anything this time. Sunday we spent the day lazing around watching movies. We finally got to watch the Hunger Games Catching Fire. I am a huge Hunger games fan. I read all the books as soon as they were published. I did however manage to make some rice crispy treats for the boys. 

I poured white chocolate candy coating on top for extra yum and put star sprinkles for the cuteness factor. Yummy!

My mommy is having hip replacement surgery on Tuesday. So I will be there for her as much as possible and probably won't be blogging much this week. She is such a strong woman. I will keep everyone updated on her progress.

Thanks for reading Angels!

I'm wearing my new favorite drugstore finds Wet n Wild eye shadow in 'i'm getting sunburned' and Hard Candy lip plumping serum in 'swan lake'.


  1. Those rice crispy treats look so good!

  2. You look great in the picture! Your hair is gorgeous. I pray your mum's replacement went well and safely without any hitches.

    I made rice crispie cakes recently and they were a big hit. Although mine didn't have the lovely topping yours did ^^ I am not such a Hunger Games fan when it comes to the books although I did read them all. They were okay. I especially liked the movie Catching Fire, though, it was amazing!

    1. Thanks so much. I didn't like the books as much as the movies either. I'm not a big reader. I loved the movies though, I can't wait for mockingjay to come out.

Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.

Review: Too Faced Teddy Bear Brush Set

By request, here is my very first beauty product review.

This lovely brush set is the Teddy Bear Hair Brush Set by Too Faced Cosmetics, $65 on I've always been a fan of Too Faced, there products are great and I love how they package and market their products. So of course I was very excited to receive this brush set. This set comes with 5 makeup brushes and a bag to carry them. I love tge bag, I see myself using it for something else; i dont like tge idea of makeup brushes being loose in a bag. The set includes a large powder brush and 4 brushes for the eyes, contour, blender, all over shadow and liner.

The brushes as expected, are super soft. They really feel like a soft teddy bear! I also loved that they printed the name of the brush on the handle, so you could always know what each brush is for. So after using the brushes to apply my makeup here are my thoughts:

Powder Brush: This is my new favorite big brush! I don't wear powder but I used it for a blush brus…
