I recently came upon a hip site that sells fun whimsical t-shirts that are made from 100% cotton. They are based out of Ireland but they ship world wide. this is the link to get the there shop. You guessed it every t-shirt has ladyumbrella featured on every shirt, I love the fact that this company truly seems to love art and have fun at the same time.  Case in point here are a few names of there shirts...ladyumberlla is away with the birds, ladyumbrella likes to strut just to name a few.

NYX mascara's

I recently purchased two mascaras from the nyx cosmetics sale on are my thoughts.  The doll eye mascara claims to be a lengthening mascara but after 3 coats the mascara barley builds up and the wand is rough on the lash line it also clumped my lashes like crazy, I'm not a fan.  However I loved the propel my eyes mascara it claims to "propel" your eyelashes in 4 ways with the wand and it seems to do that, made my lashes volumized and lengthened with 2 coats.  No clumping and has a wet consistency. Here are photos of both mascaras packaging. Hope you found this helpful!

Sigma Brushes

Looking for good quality brushes compatible to MAC for a much more affordable price? Try Sigma brushes! I have the E40 Tapered blending brush which blends like a dream and doesn't shed brush hairs and the F15 duo fiber powder/blush brush. I use it for blush and it allows me to use my more vibrant colors, it makes them much more wearable. The packaging was cute, the brushes came in a nice pink bag, I love little touches like that. If you've tried Sigma brushes let me know which ones and what you think of them. I give them a 9.5 out of 10  Check them out at

Collective Haul & Review (drugstore products)

Collective meaning I have bought these products over the past 2 weeks.  Lets start with the drugstore item, most I bought at Ulta. The new Rimmel moisture renew lip gloss in Pink Benefit-Right away you can tell it is very moisturising! The color is not opaque but it was a good overall color payoff. It has SPF 15 as well as vitamins A, C and E.  Definitly go and check this out! NYX winter in moscow pallette-comes with 2 blushs (1 matte and 1 shimmer in pink tones), 5 lipglosses (dark mauve to medium pink range), 14 eye shadows (black, greys, silver tones, broze , dark green and a matte white high light) and also has a good size mirror.  Would be great for travel! Check it out at  I also picked up the john freida frizz ease creame serum overnight repair formula-to be used at night before bed.  Its a light weight serum you work into hair then wash out in the morning. They recommend you use it 2-3 ties a week.  I tried this last night and it made my hair feel amaing this morning!  I have thick wavy hair that get's frizzy and you couldnt even tell if you felt my hair today.  This product is a must!

I have a haul/review part two coming soon of products I purchased at 2 differnt CCO's in my area.  Will post on friday! Dip your feet in and stay awhile, this blogs just getting started!

Clinique skincare and CCO's

I have extremely oily skin and even in my mid twenties still have some acne.  Yesterday I bought a sample set of clinique to see if the product work for my skin and do the things it claims it will.  The kit came with a liquid face soap, an under eye cream, spf 25 city block facial lotion, mascara, makeup remover and the toner all made for oily skin.  I used the face wash this morning so here starts the journey to see how it work for me! I will say I am impressed with the under eye cream so far it had made the skin very soft. Over time it claims to help dark circles and fine lines, I'll have to get back to you on how it all works.

Also I wanted to talk about CCO's or cosmetic company outlets, they are a great place to find high end skin care, perfume and makeup at a discounted price. Most times you will find mac. bobby brown, clinique, etc. If you look on a search engine for locations that will probably be the best way to find on near you.  If you are in the south east Pennsylvania area try the CCO at the Philadelphia premium outlets located in Limerick or try the one located at the VF outlets in Reading.  Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what your thoughts are!

Current fixiation...

So my love affair with nail polish is back.  It was on hiatus for awhile but its back with a vengeance!  I can remember when I was a child watching my mom always pull out the OPI bottles of nail polish and paint beautiful colors on her nail wishing I could some day own that many nail polishes, haha.  Enter the present and boy do I have a collection.  I jumped on the new OPI Katty Perry collection, the black shatter polish is awesome!  I also got the teenage dream polish and its it my sparkly fantasy!!! You see I love anything that sparkles.  So if you havnt check out the collection yet jump on it...its limited edition.  Can be founf on and Ulta stores.  I think I am gonna post a list of my favorite nailpolish.  What are some of yours? Anything you think I should check out?

I keep busy with scrapbooking, reading, shopping and music is a big part of my life.  I mostly into emo/punk. Not sure what else to say just yet...but here's to always moving forward. Wont you join me?
