Am I on a Hiatus?

I know I haven't updated in a while now. I've been really busy and really stressed out and in denial that I've been totally neglecting my website.
I'm in the process of finding a new job, trying to save enough money to pay my tuition for the fall semester of college, and moving at the end of the month. Not to mention I'm going on vacation in a week and even though I can't really afford to go now, we paid for it earlier in the year and refunds aren't given.
I'm not going to go into all of the details about our money situation because it's personal, but our income has essentially been cut in half leaving nothing to pay my tuition with.
I've been using my twitter account to try to sell some of the things on my store envy account and to promote my gofundme account where I'm trying to collect donations toward my tuition and I hate doing that but I feel like I'm without other options at this point. 
Anyway, the point in writing this was to let you know that there won't be any posts until after we get moved and settled in. But I have a ton of things to write about once that happens. 
Between my laptop being broken and only having the camera on my iPhone 4, I haven't really felt like posting and I don't like to force it because it's obvious and no one wants to read that. 
In the meantime, if you'd like to guest post anytime this month or the first week of July let me know. Anything beauty, hair, skin care, fashion or fitness related. As long as it's relevant to my blog. 
In case you'd like to donate to my gofundme account I'll post the link below along with the link to my store envy store

Thanks so much for reading!
I'll be checking comments and I'll update soon!

FOTD Feat. Makeup Geek & Urban Decay

Today's post is a simple FOTD that I did over the weekend.

I used Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Unicorn all over the lid and lower lash line.
Makeup Geek Creme Brulee in the crease
Urban Decay Foxy to highlight the brow bone
Urban Decay Venus in the inner corner
MAC Gel Liner in Black Track
Rimmel Retro Glam Mascara
Wet n Wild Clear Brow Gel

Too Faced BB Cream
Urban Decay Razor Sharp Finishing Powder
Milani Luminoso Blush
Nars Bronzing Powder Laguna
e.l.f. Setting Spray
Burts Bees Chap Stick

You can also kind of see the purple streaks I had in my hair. I put lavender and light pink streaks in my hair and they already washed out. I'm going to re-do them after I bleach my roots.

As you can tell, my roots haven't been bleached in quite a while. They're around 3 inches long...is it ombre yet?

Thanks for reading!

May Ipsy Bag Review

It's been a while. Around a week to be specific. In case you weren't aware, my laptop and camera aren't functioning, so I'm using my iPhone for everything. 
That being said, here's my May Ipsy bag.

Ipsy is a monthly subscription service. It's $10 per month in the US and $12 per month in Canada(I think!)
Each month you will receive 4-5 deluxe sample/full size products.  To sign up, go here!

Now, onto the bag!
This months theme is 'Fresh Picks'

Sorry for the blurry picture, I'm still getting the hang of using my iPhone for pictures and it's not going well.

Hang Ten Sun screen SPF 50. The full size retails for $12.99; this is 1 fl. oz. 
I haven't tried this yet, but I'm going to take it to the beach with me next month.

Eyelash Curler from Swissco. This retails for $5. I haven't tried it yet either.

Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo in Celestial and Opal. This was a special release for Ipsy only, so I don't know a retail price. I'll post a swatch below.

Boo-Boo Cover Up in Medium. I believe this is full size and retails for $20. 

Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask. This is a sample size & the full size retails for $40. 

It's hard to tell but the Opal is a light pink with a pink/purple shift, and Celestial is a very shimmery golden shade.

I don't know the exact value of this bag but I'm happy with it. I'm mostly excited to try the new hair mask.

Thanks for reading!
What did you get in your bag?
