Usually I like to reserve Reddit gift exchanges for all of my geeky interests, but this time I decided to try something new. JEWELRY!

Here’s what I got from the gift exchange. I love lots and lots of silver. Thanks Renee (aka Teenkerbelle_NOLA) for the thoughtful gift!

Got these 3 necklaces with black string and silver detailing. Each of these necklaces are adjustable in length with a silver hook. The only issue I find with them is that I can’t really wear them layered because the length difference between the 3 isn’t enough. But otherwise, it’s gorgeous when worn individually or in pairs. Great for the pool side too!

This other beautiful necklace has got to be my favorite. I love the detailing and finish of the silver. It’s a long necklace that will work really will with other silver jewelry that I already own. Also the locket has a magnetic clamp and opens up! Gotta figure out what to put inside of it now.

Oiii~ So my husband likes to rip open all of the packages that we get, even when it’s not his own. This is the result of his sloppy pack opening skills. Thankfully, it’s not that hard to read and the gift itself wasn’t damaged at all.

Anyways, I’m excited for my new additions to my jewelry collection and can’t wait to wear them! Love, love, love.

Thanks for reading!

Yves Saint Laurent YSL Dessin Des Levres Lip Liners (# 3, 8, 17)

I love wearing lipstick, but sometimes it can be so high maintenance! Whenever I wear any lipstick thats bright and bold, I get nervous that the color is fading or that I’ve accidentally smudged it. As a result, I end up checking my reflection constantly — through phone, mirrors, asking friends/husband =___=;; Lipstick can easily go from being fun and flirty to nasty and trashy. If you wear lipstick, having a good lip liner is a MUST. I must admit, I’m no expert at lip liners since I’ve only started using them for about a year now. So if you have any tips, tricks, or advice, do share! The lip liners that I have to show today are the Dessin Des Levres by Yves Saint Laurent (YSL). I have them in 3 colors, #3 Fucshia, #8 Cinnamon, and #17 Rose. These are available for purchase at $30 a pop. That’s quite a hefty price tag for what seems like a simple product! It’s almost the same price as YSL’s Rogue Volupte lipsticks which are $36. I guess it all comes down to how you use lipliners and whether you really care for perfection. Either that or you could definitely find other brands for

But anyways, good news is I’M BACK!  Stay tuned for my next blog post, which will be the SumerBeauty Essentials Giveaway hosted by myself… about time right?! Can’t wait to post!

ipsy May Glam Bag Review Shorts

This is my second ipsy glam bag, ever. I received it in the month of May. Wish I could have done a review short on the bag while it was still May, but if you’ve noticed, my blog has been on a hiatus recently. Guess the end of June will just have to do! Very soon after this review, I’ll be posting my ipsy June glam bag review as well. There’s also a giveaway coming up too! So at least I can promise you that much. Overall, I am pretty satisfied with ipsy’s May glam bag. Also it’s been confirmed by a blog reader and myself that once you get off the waiting list, you don’t have to wait anymore. So far all of my bags have arrived in a timely fashion, usually around the middle of the month. What’s inside the ipsy May glam bag: “VIP: Very Important Products” canvas bag bellápierre cosmetics Gel Eye Liner in EBONY NO.02 (looks very much like a pencil eyeliner that you need to sharpen) amie naturally kind: Morning Dew Matte-Finish Moisturizer (controls oiliness & shine, hydrates & softens after cleansing) Briogeo Rosarco Milk: reparative leave-in conditioning spray (use on clean damp hair, contains rosehip,
