Catching Fire: Book + Movie Comparison Review


I went to the midnight premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this Thursday and my expectations for the film were high. The first Hunger Games film was nicely well adapted from book to film and (minus excessive shaky cam) I was really well pleased with it. Well I can safely say that the sequel is amazing and blew my expectations away. 

Week V Chanel Vamp

Leave a Comment

A little historical background for you all. Released in 1994, Vamp is Chanel's best selling nail polish with $1 million dollar in sales in their first year alone. Vamp was later made legendary by various celebrities and notably, Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction. The polish is a deep, reddish wine color that was made to resemble dried blood, hence the name.  

Classic. Amazing. Perfect for the holidays.

Easy Fall look!

I posted this look on Instagram a few days ago (you can follow me here!!) and I couldn't resist making a post about it. Fall is the time for smokier eyes and darker lips but lately I've been stuck in either or of two opposites. Thick eyeliner and dramatic lips or beautifully simple, where I usually focus on a clean and sculpted canvas with dramatic top and bottom lashes being the focal point. 

Week IV Maybelline Color Show Twilight Rays

I was in the mood to do a simple black nail but right before the first coat was applied, I hesitated. I love black nails but I wanted to do something slightly different but still in the same color family and ended up choosing Maybelline's Twilight Rays, a chic emerald twist on the classic black nail.

Week III Lagoon by Dior

Every time I decide to pick out a blue from my collection I always tend to gravitate towards this one. Lagoon is one of my favorites and has such incredible formula and lasts forever on my nails, never chipping off or losing its shine. It's bold, gorgeous and it always makes me feel like I'm about to jet set off to holiday.

Review: Ren Jojoba Microbead Purifying Facial Polish!

I've been on the hunt for the perfect exfoliator lately and one thing I've discovered in my search is that every exfoliator is completely different from the other. While the desired end result is the same, some exfoliators are more abrasive, some are baby soft, and some are in the middle. I believe that exfoliating is an essential staple in your skincare routine and for each skin type and personal preference, each person needs one for their own needs.

Title: When We Wake (When We Wake #1)
Author: Karen Healey
Release Date: March 5, 2013
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Source: Bought
Rating: ★★★★★


Sixteen-year-old Tegan is just like every other girl living in 2027—she's happiest when playing the guitar, she's falling in love for the first time, and she's joining her friends to protest the wrongs of the world: environmental collapse, social discrimination, and political injustice.

But on what should have been the best day of Tegan's life, she dies—and wakes up a hundred years later, locked in a government facility with no idea what happened.

The future isn't all she had hoped it would be, and when appalling secrets come to light, Tegan must make a choice: Does she keep her head down and survive, or fight for a better world?

Award-winning author Karen Healey has created a haunting, cautionary tale of an inspiring protagonist living in a not-so-distant future that could easily be our own.

My Review:

Week II China Glaze Stone Cold

While the weather over here in Florida is not at all reflective of typical autumn weather, I'm starting to hover towards darker, warmer tones in all aspects of my wardrobe.
