Happy Thanksgiving!

As the scent of a freshly home-cooked meal is being prepared for the dining table, I want to take this time to be appreciative of all the wonderful things that I am thankful for in my life.

Looking at life as riding a roller coaster with many ups and downs, I know that my family and friends will always be there supporting me wherever I am on this bumpy ride.

And now, I have a new group of people to be thankful for and that is YOU (my blog readers). Thank you to every single person who's ever passed through my blog, whether that's reading one post or coming back and reading more. I'm even more thankful for the individuals who are subscribed to my blog through Google Friend Connect or via email subscriptions.

Kiss Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit

            To start off, I don't usually wear false lashes. I'm more of a eyeliner and mascara gal. So I was excited to try this product but really wasn't expecting much. The lashes itself are relatively lightweight and adds a great deal of volume to my lashes. They were really easy to put on but I wasn't sure how much to cut off, if any. So in the end I just put the entire lashes that came in the box. So the left side in the box goes on the right eye, and the right side in the box goes on the left eye.

NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact

NYC New York Color IndividualEyes 
This a great intro palette for those just getting started with makeup. The colors are a little washed out, and I wished they were a bit more pigmented. Other than that, it's very affordable at $4.99. My favorite from the palette is definitely the primer, highlighter, and the illuminator that brings a very pretty light glimmer to your eyes.
