Water Bottles

I am a water bottle junkie. I have like 5 or 6 and buy new ones rather frequently. I always take a water bottle to class and to work. I have three favorite types which I use most often. 
I have one Camelbak water bottle which I got at the school book store. It has my university logo on it and is one of my favorite water bottles. 

I have a Waterbobble in pink. I got mine from Old Navy. I love it. It is my other favorite water bottle. When they are new the first couple times they are used black beads come out of the filter, they go away after the second of third use though. 

I have several of the aluminium water bottles in different colors and brands. I like them but I am a bit of a klutz so I tend to spill them all over my face.

Harry Potter

As usual in the summer there is nothing on TV. So my parents and I decided to have a Harry Potter movie marathon. We are starting with the first one tonight, and watching one each night until we finish. I may also re-read the books after I finish my summer reading list. So many books I want to read and so little time. Its been a long time since I read the books. My family has been Harry Potter fan for quite some time. The first three books were read aloud to me and my twin brother when they first came out. My brother and I used to fight over who got to read the new book first. Well I'm going to return to the movie.

Ulta Order

Once again my skin care system was not working; so I decided to try the Burt's Bees Acne System. When I got my Ulta sales catalog I saw that they had the system and it came with a free gift. So I decided to order it instead of getting it from Walgreen's (who doesn't like free stuff). Since I was already ordering that I ordered some other product that I wanted which are not sold locally. I placed my order on Sunday morning (when the new sale went into effect) and got my order Wednesday (3 business days later).

The Packaging. 

Burt's Bees natural Acne Solutions. This came with a 5 oz. purifying gel cleanser, a 2 oz. daily Moisturizing Lotion, and a 0.26 oz. targeted Spot Treatment

Two of the Essie Summer 2012 nail polishes. Left: Bikini So Teeny. Right: All Tied Up

NYX products: First Picture top to bottom: Nude Matte Shadow in Lap Dance, Eye shadow in Flamingo,   Powder Blush in Pinched, Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Beige. Swatches are in the same order as the picture to its left. 

 Three FREE samples come with every order. I chose: (left to right) Versace Cologne, Biore blemish fighting ice cleanser, Benefit the PORE fessional.

I free hanging travel bag came with every order of Burt's Bees with an order of $12.99 or more. It is from cul-de-sac and the pattern is Mosaic.

I'm happy with everything I have ordered so far. The only thing I'm not sure about is the Burt's Bees natural Acne Solutions, because I have not tried it yet. I hope it works well for me because I am running out of Acne products to try. I am supper happy with the shipping and customer service from Ulta seeing as it only took 3 days to get here. I would definitely order from them again.

Review: Clinique Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup

I was looking for a lighter foundation to use for the summer. I am always really cautious about foundations and whether I will like them and if they will break me out and what color I am. So foundation is the one of the products I go higher end for. I have a lot of acne and skin problems as it is so for my main face makeup I use Clinique. I like their acne solutions makeup line which I use the foundation and concealer from. I also use a different concealer for under my eyes because the acne solutions one will dry it out too much. I got some samples to try the moisture surge tinted moisturizer but it was to oily for me and almost seemed to slide off my face as it got oily throughout the day. So I went back the the Clinique counter and my favorite lady was working, she's helped me a lot and knows my skin, and she recommended the new Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup
I LOVE this foundation. My skin is less oily during the day and this foundation stays put. Its perfect for me in summer when the weather is humid and my skin get oilier faster. I have this foundation in shade 02 Alabaster. I've been using this foundation for a little less than a month and I love how it looks on my skin. It has to be blended fast or can appear streaky. I wore this foundation to my boyfriends grad. party which was outside on a warm day after raining all morning, it was hot and humid, this foundation stayed put the entire day until I took it off later that night. I love this foundation and am definitely planing on repurchasing it.
