Welcome to my World of Beauty and Reviews!

I finally got my hands on the infamous INGLOT 10 Freedom System palette. I decided to play around with it today and came up with a look and I have to say these shadows are amazingly pigmented!

New Vanity Mirror!

It is incredibly bright and I think it came out Amazing!

Polish Hoarders Anonymous!

So the 1st step in any program is admitting we have a problem...

1st Makeup Swap!

Hey Ladies so I just couldn't wait to do this post. I just got home from a wonderful Afternoon with my Hubby and I had a few Packages waiting for me . Thats is always a warm and fuzzy feeling ha ha ha.

I recently did my 1st makeup swap with my Blogger Friend Laisa from Chica Bloggerista aka Quelindaglam on Twitter. I was so thrilled to have done this with her since I had heard how much fun they could be and I just love shopping and putting things together for other people. She is an amazingly sweet and intelligent person and I am so glad that I met her in Blogging world and Twitterverse ha ha. We had emailed each other a list or a survey of things we liked and didn't like so that we had an idea of how to begin and go forth with our swap. Now some people put a price limit and what not on there swaps and what not but clearly neither one of us paid attention to it and just went wild. Which was sooo fun for me I just couldn't fit enough things for her in my opinion in a box !

WARNING PICTURE HEAVY!

As soon as I opened the Box:

Stila the IT Girl Palette


I cant begin to say how extremely appreciative I am for all of these wonderful presents from Miss Chica Bloggerista! Honestly not because she sent me all of these gifts because even if it was just the card I had received I would have loved it equally as much. I think it is important to remain humble and not get sucked into this blog world of competitiveness of who has what and how many of this product does one have. I see how easily we can fall into the trap of trying to keep up with other peoples blogs and making sure you have every new collection that is out there and what not. Things like this and people like her are what help maintain the Blogging world a fun and a place where we can all get together and make new friends and share our beauty ideas and thoughts with one another. 

I look forward to doing more swaps in the future with all my Beauty Bloggies! I Thank You a Million Laisa you are an awesome buddy to have and only wish you the best with anything that comes your way!
