4. M.A.C. pigment in Full Force Violet. I love this shade. One of my fave purples to use, very pigment but a little hard to blend..i have a love hate relationship with matte

5. Nicole Miller purse from JcPenny. My mom bought this for me last year to use while i was at an LWML (Lutheran Woman's Missionary League) convention.

6. Purple Old Navy top. The photo makes it look more blueish purple, but it's really deep purple and i love to pair it with a black skirt and high heels.

SOTD: Black and White Vans

I have about 50 pairs of shoes give or take a pair. Nothing high end or to expensive. The most expensive pair of shoes are a pair of Uggs that I've had for over 10 years and haven't worn in years. I always find myself wearing the same pair of black Reef flip flops for almost every occasion lately. I live in South Texas and we have beach weather all year. So I decided to challenge myself to shop my closest and where a different pair of shoes every day.

Today i had to run errands around town with both my little ones in tow, so that means my shoes needed to be comfy. I was very casual today wearing jeans and a black fitted t-shirt. Today's shoes are one of my faves that i haven't worn in over a year. My black and white girl Vans. How many pair of shoes do you have? How many of them do you actually wear? I think this is a fun idea to get some use out of the shoes you may not have a chance to wear that often.

NOTD: Black and White

I was having some fun with my nail art polishes. This is a very simple and easy design to do. You can use any colors you have.

Use 2 different colors of polish. Paint stripes at an angle on your nails. Once you are done with that take a clear polish and brush on a thin layer over the stripes to make them wet. Working quickly take a needle/toothpick and drag across the opposite direction you painted the stripes. Apply a top coat once you are finished.

I used:

Nail Tek Foundation II basecoat

Stripe Rite in Black

L.A. Colors Art Deco in White

Orly in Love Each Other

Orly Sec n Dry

M.A.C. Style Black

The Style Black collection from M.A.C. is the first
collection in a long time that i was excited about. It seems I'm not alone in this. I was not disappointed by any of the products. The MES are amazing and of course have fallout, but the color pay off when paired with the greasepaint stick is to die for! I picked up Young Punk MES, Night Violet Mattene, Black Knight lipstick, Black greasepaint stick, Blackware and Blackfire glimmerglasses. The glimmerglasses are on the sheer side, but are nice to deepen the color of lighter lipsticks. How amazing is the greasepaint stick? I'm in love with it. Also how cool is the hidden sharpener? Some have compared it to Sharkskin shadestick, but i think this is way better. The greasepaint stick is easier to work with, deeper color and stays
put once dry.

I can't wait to start playing with the products. Since I love Young Punk MES so much I think I will have to go and get the other 3 MES. If I don't I know I will regret

What did you get from the collection? Were you excited, disappointed?

Swatches: Black Knight l/s, Blackware Glimmerglass, Blackfire Glimmerglass
