How He Proposed!!!!

Is this forreal?! Am I really ENGAGED?! This feeling is completely surreal. I look down on my ring and I still can't believe it :D As you can tell, i'm still in shock. Last night at 10PM Benji proposed :) Heres how it all started.

Every Halloween we throw a big party. Its one of our biggest parties of the year and definitely the most fun with everyone in their costumes! I was having a great time with friends, having a drink here and there. My friend goes "Judy, lets spread out our drinks. You don't want trashed early in your party!" We agreed that our next drink would be at 10. I kept looking at the clock and reminding her how many minutes we got left! lol. So here I am entertaining guest, and Benji pulls me aside saying that we needed to talk. I thought he was upset about something with the party. Maybe an uninvited guest or something around those lines. He pulled me from the party to my next door neighbor's driveway. I had no idea what was going on! Benji said something on the mic standing in the driveway, and the garage started to open!!! Smoke was coming out, and a band was there.. A BAND!!! A band of my close friends Celisse, Wesley, Allen, Randy, and Dustin!! They were AWESOME!!!!! Then theres Benji, singing "Sunday Morning" by Maroon 5. This has been our favorite song since we've been together almost 4 years now. I couldn't believe Benji was actually singing! This guy NEVER sings! Not even kareoke with close family and friends. Anyway, This is how it happened. How he proposed. I am looking forward to the rest of my life with him. I know this sounds cliche as hell, but I feel like the luckiest girl on earth. Thanks for listening guys!

Greek Goddess Hair Tutorials (Quick & Easy!)

What You'll Need:
- 1 inch curling iron
- heat protectant 
- 1 hair tie
- several bobbi pins
- hair spray
- Gold hair accessories

For this tutorial, I used the Conair Infinity curling iron, Tresseme heat tamer spray, and L'oreal Elnett hairspray.

If you watch my video, you'd know that I am a fan of Conair tools! I had just bought the infinity curling iron. I like the way the curls turned out, but the process took forever! There is no grip to the curling iron so my hair kept slipping from the barrel. I'd also accidentally turn the iron off because the on/off button is in the middle of the handle. I'm gonna have to return it and stick to my other clipless irons.

Hair Lotion for a Sleek Ponytail

On bad hair days, I like to pull my hair back into a ponytail. My only struggle was keeping my hair tamed and sleek without it looking too crunchy or greasy. Thankfully, I found a product that works for me. I got the HerCut Ponytail Styling Lotion at Sephora after I saw it featured in a beauty magazine. Definitely worth the $22. 
This photo was taken about 4 hours after using the hair lotion. There are a few fly aways, but the hair is still tamed.

5 oz bottle for $22, not bad considering you just need a dime size amount

I wouldn't say it prevents flyaways, but definitely helps control flyaways.

BH Cosmetics Open Box Review


 My favorite palette by far is the 120 Eyeshadow palette 3rd edition. The palette has lots of great fall colors for day and night. I love the brushes as well. I'm impressed by the quality. They're very soft and durable. I recommend these products for beginners and makeup lovers like myself!
