Poshmark – A Bigger & Better Yard-sale!

Hey guys! While I’m still on vacation on the beautiful Edisto Island, I thought I’d share with you my thoughts on the app called Poshmark! I just downloaded it last week and have already made my first sale!

Alright, so basically Poshmark is an online community of buyers and sellers centered around fashion, i.e, clothing, jewelry, shoes, etc. (Note that some people sell other things such as makeup, or even movies and games!) You can choose to just buy from sellers on Poshmark, or, if you want to make some money and get rid of clothes you don’t wear, you can list them for sell. It’s actually really easy; you just take a photo or two of your item and upload it, give it a nice title and description, and set the price you’d like to charge. Generally, you keep 80% of your profits in exchange for Poshmark taking care of other fees.

This is my profile page (you should follow me ^_^)

When you make a sell, Poshmark sends you a shipping label, which you can slap on a box and send off in the mail! Then, you can withdraw your profits into your bank account!

Now, there are some rules of etiquette that you should know of –
1. You pretty much must follow to be followed (most people will always follow back!)
2. Don’t “like” an item unless you are considering buying it.
3. If someone “shares” your item, share an item of theirs to return the favor!

Other than that, it’s easy-peasy! Everyone I’ve encountered has been super nice, and it’s a really fun way to recycle your wardrobe!

I look forward to seeing you all on Poshmark! PS. If you buy from me, I’ll be more than happy to give you guys a 15% discount on bundles – just let me know you’re from WordPress 🙂 Happy Shopping!

Stila “Not so Bare” Palette Mini Review and Swatches!

Yesterday I went to Ulta and got this lovely little palette by Stila . Out of all the high-end brands, I think Benefit and Stila are my top pick, mostly because of the adorable and eye-catching packaging, as you can see here.

Too cute right? I know. And only $20…which isn’t too bad for all that you get.

Here’s what the inside looks like.

stila

 

You get 6 eyeshadows (four satin, two matte), a highlighting powder, and a lip/blush combo cream. I played around with the colors yesterday and today and they seem pretty good quality to me.

I swatched all of the colors for you all;

From top left; Sugar, Fawn, Barefoot and Buff (which is so light it’s imperceptible to my camera ._.) On the bottom we have Mink, Dolce, and Lily.

They’re basically all variants of browns and khaki’s with one black shade. The lip/blush cream is nice and blendable; only requiring a little bit for both cheeks. I like it better as a blush than a lip gloss definitely.

This would be the ideal little travel sized palette for those of you on the go, or a nice little daytime palette for anyone really. I’ll have to play with it a little more but I think this will end up being my next go-to palette!

Happy Sunday and God Bless!

1. I’m a pretty amazing cook and baker If I do say so myself…I mean, I did go to several cooking classes at the nation’s top culinary school. *toot toot* – thats the sound of me tooting my own horn 😀

2. I’m amazingly BAD at hair. I can do just about anything with a straightener but buns, braids and stuff like that? I’m completely lost.

3. I should have been born in Ancient Greece. That was a cool era yo.

4. I’m neutral toned! That means I can pull off silver and gold jewelry! 😀

5. I play a mean piano, which is my favorite instrument! I love it so much, and I love the fact I can play anything by ear and not have to conform to silly sheet music!

6. I love Bubzbeauty and Pyonghwaa on YouTube. I’ve watched many other “guru’s” and I love them too but I never hear anything bad about these two here. They’re just so sweet, humble and wonderful! I hope I can be half as awesome as they are one day!

7. Last but not least… I’m very short. Like, when I made it to 5’0 it was a big deal. I’m always in the front in pictures -_-

Well that’s it for me!

I’m Back Home with a LUSH HAUL!

*yawn* Our trip back home seemed to span months; I mean, I was basically up for over 24 hours. I get a bit delusional after oh, lets say 17?

…Well anyway! On our way to the airport I had the chance to stop at the Scottsdale Lush store! Here’s my “eager face”

derp

 

I love going into the actual shop – in every one I go in all the employees are super friendly and casual! They really treat you like your royalty, giving you recommendations and demonstrating the products on your hands! One girl in Raleigh even challenged me to a “pale off” (to see who was the palest) I think I won haha! I win everytime!

I had already looked online to see what I wanted, so I just walked in and picked it all up!

yay

 

Here’s what I got!

1st: I got three Twilight Bath Bombs – one for me and one each for my friends Kristen and Taylor!

twilight

 

This along with Big Blue is probably my favorite bomb. To me, it smells like cotton candy with a slight woodsy undertone. When you plop it into the bath, it starts out light, then turns darker and darker just like the night sky!

Next I bought a small bottle of the Cynthia Sylvia Stout shampoo.

It promises shine and volume, can’t wait to try it out! I was a bit worried about the whole “beer in it” thing but it smells great!

I got a Ceridwen’s Cauldron bath melt to try out as well.

melt

 

The smell makes me think of a dark forest in fairy tale land or something like that. Very mystical and outdoorsy smelling. I also like that it has oatmeal in it, because oatmeal is a wonderful natural cleanser and exfoliator! I made a homemade mask featuring oatmeal, check it out if you’ve got the chance!

Lastly I got a small cut of the Herbalism facial cleanser.

It smells like my spice cabinet! All you do is take a small chunk, mix with water and rub into your face for a few minutes. It soothed my travel- tired skin after the first use!

That’s all for this haul, for more Lush reviews click here!

Oh and just as a side note – LUSH IS COMING TO CHARLOTTE!!! The lady at Scottsdale told me and I about Jumped in the air! I’d love to get a job there but I believe you have to be 18… ahh well at least I don’t have to shop online anymore!

Goodnight Everyone!
