Day 2: March 2014 Favorites!

Time for another favorites post! I am in shock that it is April!!! In shock! March was a fun month because I did a international box swap to the UK! As you will see some of those items made it into my March favorites! This month was also a really hard month for me. My boyfriend and I decided to part ways. It has been hard. I’m very thankful that my family and friends have been there for me. They mean the world to me!

Well let’s get into the products!!


1) Sleek i-Divine Storm Palette
No surprise that this palette is in my monthly favorites! I used this palette quite a bit this month! This was my first time using anything from Sleek. I love this palette and it’s amazing colors!!! Make sure to check out my review on this palette here if you want to see the lovely swatches and my FOTDs!


2) Sleek Blusher in Coral
I also have been loving this blusher from Sleek. It gives such a nice color to the cheeks without it being too overpowering. I also did a review on this blusher, so make sure to check it out here.


3) Katy Perry Killer Queen Perfume
I love this perfume! I got it awhile ago! I love the scent of this perfume! You can buy this perfume on Katy Perry’s Official Fragrance site here, and also at Sephora or Ulta. I got mine at Sephora. According the Katy Perry Fragrance’s Official site, the top notes include dark plum, wild berries and bergamot, the middle notes include red velvet flower, rainbow plumeria and natural jasmine sambac, and the bottom notes includes cashmeran, natural patchouli heart and liquid praline. I just think that this perfume smells really sweet and fruity, but also fresh and floral. The packaging is a little different because it lies on its side, but I like it because of its uniqueness. Yesterday my mom surprised me with a roller-ball in this perfume because it was on clearance at Kohls! Thanks mum! Now I have one for my purse. 


4) Tree Hut Shea Body Butter
I got this in my Beauty Box 5 this month and I have been loving it! I got it in the scent Coconut Lime. It is super moisturizing and it does smell amazing! It is surprising to me that I like it so much, because I usually shy away from coconuts. Adding the lime to the coconut scent adds a nice touch that I think makes it perfect! This is my first Tree Hut product so I was pleasantly surprised! If you want to see what other products I got in my Beauty Box 5 check out my post here.


5) Pacifica Lip Tint in Guava Berry
There is no surprise that this is in my monthly favorites! It is my go-to lip product! This lip tint is well on its way to becoming a holy grail! Actually, it is already a holy grail! I did get more colors during my recent haul, so I will be posting a full review on those sometime this month. Love these lip tints <3!



Decided to include this scrub top in my monthly favorites! Whenever I work I have to wear scrubs, so I always like to get fun scrubs like this one. I did work on St. Patrick’s Day and I got a lot of comments about my scrub top from both patients and coworkers. I love Snoopy!


The M&M Sisters Favorites!
You’re probably wondering….umm what does that mean? You’re probably thinking of M&M candies right now! Nope I say this because I have this thing where I name my pets with a letter M. It all started with Maddie. My parents surprised my brothers and I when I was in 9th grade with a little west highland white terrier puppy. My family has always loved that breed! I decided to name her Maddie Mae. In 2011 I decided to adopt a cat from the Humane Society. I wanted a short haired cat and that is where I found Molly. She was already named Molly. I decided to give her the middle name Mae. I got my Shiba Inu Mirya in October of 2013. I decided that she also needed a M name to go along with Mae. I decided on Mirya. So now they all have the same initials MM making them the M&M sisters. Lol! Yes, I’m a dork! Anyway onto their favorites!

Mirya & Maddie always love fighting over the same toy. They go around in circles and circles playing tug a war. Here are some of the toys that they love!



Here are some treats that they have been loving! I know the picture is blurry, but look at Mirya’s tongue.


Molly has been loving these new treats that I got for her. The first ingredient is tuna instead of chicken by product! They’re grain free and a lot more healthier for her than her normal Temptations treats(chicken by product meal is the first ingredient). She also has been loving this little mouse, well as long as Mirya doesn’t try to steal it.



I went to the movie Divergent with my family, even though I didn’t finish the book. I really liked the movie! It is definitely out there and a little different. Not a movie my grandmother would like, but all in all I loved it! I of course got Catching Fire and Frozen on blue-ray. I love the movie Frozen, like a lot of people lol! I wonder how much Disney made off of this movie?!? My niece is super active and she even sits and watches this movie from start to finish. She is 2 years old and also claps at the end. My older niece who is going to be 6 loves this movie as well and is going to have a Frozen themed birthday party in April. My sister in law said that they always sing the songs. My older niece would sing, “Arendelle is in deep deep” and the younger niece finished with “snow.” I was also excited for the Catching Fire release because I read the Hunger Games books and love the movies.


TV Shows
I started watching the show Resurrection on ABC. It is a really different show than what I am used to, but it definitely keeps my interest.
I of course have been loving my ABC Family shows, especially Switched at Birth. Although, I’m upset with ABC Family for changing their viewing options. (Have to link with cable provider on abcfamily.com or on Hulu to watch!) They have hardly any provider options so that is even more annyoing! Sorry for my little rant!
Once Upon a Time In Wonderland is one of my favorite shows! I heard that this show was canceled! ABC always does this to me! They canceled, Off the Map after a huge cliffhanger! I think that show is way better than Grey’s Anatomy. Seems like shows that I end up really liking they end up canceling! Sad I won’t get to see more of Alice and Cyrus.


I’m doing horrible at the New Years Resolution on reading more. Sad to say I didn’t read a full book this month! I am still working on reading, “Divergent.” Now after seeing the movie, I want to read all the books, because I want to see what happens!!!

Hope that you enjoyed this monthly favorites! Let me know if you have tried any of these products! Also, have you watched any of these movies or these shows? What books have you read this month?

So yes I take a lot of pictures of my pets,  but if I didn’t then I couldn’t do cool posts like this! I hope you enjoyed this post! Like the post if you made it to the end! I know it was picture heavy, but pictures are worth a thousand words. Like and comment if you like seeing pictures of my pets!!!

A Get to Know Me Tag!

I love these types of things! I also thought this set of questions was a good one and good for a beauty blogger like myself! I saw this post from Britney at buzybritney2009.wordpress.com.  I will link her post below.

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?

Naturally straight. One time in middle school I got a perm because I really wanted curly hair. Well that was a bad idea because it made my hair so fragile. But, now it is good.

 2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?

I have naturally dark blonde hair and I go to the salon to have it highlighted. Last year I dyed my hair dark brown which I really liked, but it grew out too fast and then I looked like a skunk with my blonde roots coming through. I also had red hair one time. It was one of those dyes that washes out after awhile. It started out really dark red, but when it got to be strawberry blonde random people stopped me and said they liked my hair (like at the grocery store).

Right after I dyed my hair red!


Another picture of my red hair!


Right after I dyed my hair dark brown!


Later on I decided to chop all my hair off! Well a lot of it!


Fall of 2012.

My hair now! Of course it took awhile to get back to blonde.

My hair now! Of course it took awhile to get back to blonde.

3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?

I usually wear it down. Otherwise I wear it in a ponytail at work.

4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?

I hardly do a manicure because nail polish doesn’t last. But, on my birthday on Monday I am getting my first gel manicure with my mom. I’m hoping it last a lot longer then regular nail polish. Last time I painted my nails it lasted less than 24 hours before my first chip.

5. How often do you change your nail polish?

Refer to question number 4. Two days ago I tried to do a candy cane look on my nails. Well that was a miserable fail!

6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?

I usually do all year around. But so far this winter I haven’t polished them. I should go do that.

7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?

It depends on what I am doing for that day. I take the longest on my eye makeup. I would say 15 to 20 minutes.

8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?

Depends on the shadow I am using. If it is an eye shadow that has a lot of fallout I will do my eyes first. Most of the time I do my face first. I don’t wear much face makeup. I sometimes wear foundation, otherwise lately I have been wearing a tinted moisturizer.

9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?

I would have to say I collect makeup. If you have seen my Perfect Palette Tag I’m sure you would agree. I love eye shadow palettes. It’s my favorite kind of makeup. They also make it hard when they come out with new exciting ones all the time.

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?

I have never tried wearing false lashes. Well I have tried this product called 3D Fiber lashes from Younique that applies just like mascara. Basically after applying regular mascara, transplantation gel is added over the mascara, and then fiber lashes are applied. I will do a review on it soon.

11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?

No I don’t. I hardly wear any makeup at work.

12. Do you wear makeup when you’re home alone or with family?

I wear makeup on my days off. Somedays I take lazy days and don’t put on makeup if I plan on being home alone. But, I most likely always put it on for family.

13. Will you leave the house without makeup?

I leave the house without makeup all the time.

14. How many high-end products do you have?

Quite a few.

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you’re getting dressed?

I decide when I am getting dressed. Either I put on a pair of scrubs (if I’m working) or regular clothes.

16. How often do you change your handbag?

Not very often. Every few months.

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?

I wake up and go to sleep at 12,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10, or 11 (AM/PM) I never ever go to bed or wake up at the same time. I don’t get the luxury of working 8-5 or any regular hours. I work 7 am to 7:30 PM or 7 PM to 7:30 AM. If I work the next day I go to bed at 10 PM or around there and if I work the next night shift I stay up the night before as late as I can sleep in as late as I can. Since I work 12 hour shifts I get more days off during the week. I am also only considered part time.

18. How often or when do you workout?

I will admit I could workout more. I like doing it when I get up in the morning.

19. Left handed or right handed?

Right handed. I am pretty useless with my left hand.

20. How tall are you?


21. Do you speak any foreign languages?

I was in Spanish in high school and during my senior year of high school I went to Spain and traveled to many different cities with a school group. I also got to stay with a host family. That was a really good experience.

151_7484681108_9226_n Spain 1

22. How many pets do you have?

I have a dog named Mirya and a cat named Molly. I also have a dog named Maddie who just turned 10 that lives at my parents house. I was in 9th grade when we got her.

1503909_10151766790391109_803809743_n 558779_10151128707221109_1122933362_n 309209_10150973518086109_1629855408_n

23. How do you blog?

I usually start out with thinking of ideas. Then I take pictures, upload them. Then start blogging away! I use my desktop computer.

24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?

Yes, always. I feel like that is part of blogging. I also respond to comments.

25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?

In the back of my mind. But, no I don’t make an actual physical list.

26. How did you come up with your blog name?

I was trying to think of something to go with Beauty and I don’t know Deputy just kind of came to me. My boyfriend asked me last night why I don’t want to be the Beauty Sheriff. Well, I feel like Beauty Deputy sounds better.

27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?

I use my Iphone 4s or I use my Sony Cyber-shot (16.1 mega pixels and 10x optical zoom).

28. How often do you clean your house?

I do spot cleaning every day, but deep cleaning once a week to every other.

29. What’s your favorite color?

It always changes. But, it has been purple for the longest time.

30. Do you swear?

Sometimes, I try not to swear. I hate when people can’t carry on a normal conversation without a swear word.

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?

Well it is my day off and then I work this weekend. I plan on going to my parents house because my nieces are staying there and then I am going to take them to Frozen.

November 2013 Favorites!!!

Yeah I’m sure people are sick of hearing this, but, seriously…NOVEMEBER OF 2013 is OVER…HOW?!?!?!?! How is October of 2013 over? How is November of 2012 over? As I get older I feel like my life goes faster and faster! I know as a kid I always said, “I can’t wait to be in my 20s.” Well I am, and somedays I wish I could be a kid again. I will be turning 25 in December and when I think about the fact that when I was a senior in high school the today’s seniors were in elementary school, I feel old, even though I know I am not. Anyway onto the point of this post…so with each end of the month comes my monthly favorites series where I share whatever I was loving in that month! I figured I better get this post up soon because as you can tell months go by so fast and it’s already December 2nd!

Under each product name I have a description in “italiacs” and that came off of each of the websites listed below.

1.  NUDE’tude Palette by The Balm 

“This amazing palette consists of 12 beautiful shadows that make wearing nudes sexy! These satiny smooth colors can be applied naturally, i.e. “let me slip into something more comfortable” or beautifully layered. The wide range gives you light highlighters as well as brazen bold shades that work to add definition and emphasis to your lids. Nude`tude allows you to dramatically dress up your eyes—if nothing else!”


I love this palette! It has amazing packaging and colors! I have been loving a neutral eye this month for some reason so I’ve been using this palette quite a bit lately. I will have an in-depth review coming up on this palette. I love using the colors: Seductive, Sophisticated, and Sultry together. I also love the color Spunky. These eye shadows are so buttery and soft. I just love them!



2. Purminerals Hot Rocks “Depth, Dimension, Drama”

“Add depth, dimension and drama to your look with pressed, micronized minerals in a patented, three-dimensional design! Multi-tasking PĂźr Rocks help to enhance and brighten eyes, lips and cheeks with a dose of luminous colour. Vibrant, organic jewel tones of garnet and pink zircon capture the splendor of a desert sunset, illuminating the face with shimmering, rosy undertones. Paraben-free. Net Wt: .4 oz/12 g”


I think this blusher is first off adorable with the little rock design. This blush reminds me a lot of Benefit’s Rockateaur except not as expensive. Pur Minerals has a lot of sales so you probably won’t have to pay full price for this product if you decide you want it. I just think that it gives a nice rosey glow to the cheeks. The blush is also pigmented and easy to apply.



3. Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter, Shadow, & Shimmer

“Meet Mary-Lou Manizer, a seemingly innocent honey-hued luminizer that catches everybody’s eye. This highlighter, shadow and shimmer diffuses light so your skin looks softer and younger while adding a subtle glow.”


As you can tell I love The Balm products. First off, look at the packaging. It is just cute and unique. Also, the pigmentation of this highlighter is amazing. This can also be used as a eye shadow. I usually use it as a highlight, but be careful since it is so pigmented you will only need a tiny amount on your brush. You only want a small amount of glow, where you can notice it, but that it still looks natural.





4. Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eyeliner in Brown

“A long-wearing waterproof liner infused with Amazonian clay to glide on effortlessly smooth and deliver true color in a seamless application.”


I almost took this out of my monthly favorites post because I had a hard time finding it online. Looks like they’re changing some of their eyeliners, but I did find some colors in the link above. This eyeliner I thought was very easy to use. It also has a nice dark brown color that glides on effortlessly. I did get this in a Tarte Discovery kit at Sephora once upon a time.



5. Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub

“Our sweetest confection exfoliates lips smooth, prepping them for your favorite lip color or balm. A blend of exfoliating Fair Trade sugar and moisturizing jojoba oil, this lip scrub is sure to leave your lips enticingly soft and satisfy your sweet tooth at the same time! Scrub Bubblegum over your lips (be sure to lick off the excess) and then apply your favorite lip color for a flawless finish.”


I love this lip scrub! It’s basically bubblegum flavored sugar. This lip scrub makes my lips soft and it does taste good. I know it sounds gross to lick your lips afterwards but that’s why it is flavored sugar. They also have other flavors such as popcorn, and a new cola flavored one.




6. The Balm Crease, Love, & Happiness Double-Ended Smudger Brush/Tapered Crease Brush 

“Drag the small end of Crease, Love, and Happiness along the lower lash line for soft, natural definition or use it on your eyelid for precision. Fall in love with the larger end which defines your crease and applies shadow all over your lids in one smooth sweep.”

I love this brush because it fits my crease perfectly. I use this brush all the time. It is soft and it applies shadow how I want it to. I do use both sides, but the one for my crease is my favorite side. I use the other side to place shadow.



Side to place shadow.


Side I use for my crease.

7. Fortune Cookie Soap “I Yam What I Yam, Said The Marshmallow” Body Butter

“Whip your skin into shape daily. Tests have shown only small amounts of vitamins can be absorbed by the skin at one time.  Therefore, it is better to apply smaller amounts more frequently than larger concentrations occasionally. With this cream, my friends, less is definitely more.”


I got this little body butter in my Fall Soap subscription box and I have received a few more body butters from them since then and let me tell you I LOVE THEM! They’re super moisturizing and they smell amazing! I could not find this exact scent which is a mixture of pumpkin and marshmallows, but they do have a ton of different scents available. I was just loving this scent this month because I felt like it fit perfectly during the month of November.




8. ChapStick Moisturizer Hydration Lock

“ChapStickŽ hydration lock provides advanced moisturization to revitalize and visibly improve the appearance of your lips.”


I got this ChapStick in my Birchbox as an extra and I love it. I have the scent vanilla creme. It smells amazing and it is super moisturizing! During the Fall and Winter months I am always using some sort of chap stick.



9. The Balm’s Stainiac Lip and Cheek Stain

“Stainiac “hint of tint” works with all skin tones. Dab just a touch on your Cheeks and Lips; layer to pop the color. Fear not those dreaded streaks most tints leave behind – Stainiac’s aloe-infused gel-based formula is designed to give you more time before the stain sets.”


You must be thinking…jeeze does this girl work for The Balm? I don’t what so ever, I just love this company and think they have amazing products!  I also got this product in a BirchBox. I am kind of feeling bad for canceling my BirchBox at this moment. Well, honestly most of the samples from BirchBox weren’t this good. Anyway, I felt like this stainiac gave my lips an amazing color and that it lasted a long time. It wasn’t moisturizing at all so I put on a Maybelline Baby Lips over it for some moisture.




10. Mirya’s & Molly’s Monthly Favorites!

Clarice The Reindeer Dog Toy


“The holidays will surely be filled with joy when your dog receives the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer PetHoliday Flattie Rudolph/Clarice Dog Toy; detailed with a festive red holiday scarf. Let him toss, tug and gnaw at the toy until he finds the squeaker housed internally for added fun!”

Play-N-Squeak Cardinal/Woodpecker Cat Toy

“This Our Pet’s Play-N-Squeak Cat Toy looks just like a real bird so it can be a fun toy for your cat.”


Mirya has been loving both of these toys. She loves stealing Molly’s toys and she loves this bird because it makes a bird noise. Molly also loves it when Mirya isn’t watching and she loves tossing it around. Mirya has been loving her Clarice reindeer toy which has a squeaker in it for entertainment.



Mirya also loved my Maybelline Baby lips too! (this is the one I use over my Stainiac lip stain)


She also liked my EOS lip balm!

And a little extra….

Books: Sadly I haven’t been reading any books this month. I started last month the Nicholas Sparks book, “The Longest Ride.” Well life got busy and I never got to read it. But, I will read it this month! I do love Nicholas Sparks so his books are always a favorite of mine.


Movies: Frozen and Catching Fire

I loved both these movies. I almost liked Catching Fire more than the original Hunger Games. I thought that they did a really good job with it. I can’t wait for the next 2 movies to come out. They’re splitting the book Mockingjay into 2 parts. I also saw the movie Frozen. I am a huge animated movie fanatic. I love animation. The creativity behind it fascinates me. It’s amazing how far animation has gone over the years. I also thought that Frozen had a really cute story line.

Tv Series: Once Upon a Time in Wonderland and The Voice

This month I am still loving “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.” I am always looking forward to Thursday nights because of this show. I just think that it is creative and I love the love story between Alice and Cyrus the genie. I recommend checking out this show if you like the original Once Upon a Time, characters from Disney movies, and magically type shows. I also have been loving The Voice this month. I am team Christina! I love Jacquie Lee and Matthew Schuler! I am also loving Team Adam.
