I told myself I would never use Lipsense but here we are. I decided to cave in a buy myself a kit. I chose the color Bella as my color for my kit and I also won a unicorn color for the consultant I bought from which was Sheer Berry Diamond. I tried the colors the next day and I absolutely love it and will probably not go back to regular liquid lip color.
On my first day I chose to wear just the Sheer Berry Diamond. I put it on around 7:30 AM and wore it all through the day without reapplication. I finally removed it about 9 PM that evening. When applying it I noticed a slight burning sensation which I later learned is part of the process because the product has alcohol in it. Over all I was extremely happy with the results. After a sandwich, an apple and multiple drinks it still looked absolutely amazing!
Here is the before and after photo. Can you believe it? There is barely any difference.
On day two I decided to just wear Bella and I think the Bella color is so beautiful. I prefer it over the Sheer Berry. The application is very easy and I love that I can just put it on and go about my day. Its smear proof, kiss proof and will last up to 18 hours. Here is what day two looked like, I applied it around 730 AM again and left this one until around 10 PM. I ate multiple meals and even took a nap while wearing it and it did not budge.
On day three I decided to combine the two colors and try to make a new color. I put 1 layer of Bella, 1 layer of Sheer Berry Diamond and then another layer of Bella. It turned out so pretty and once again didn’t disappoint. Wore it from about 7 AM to 10 PM again and still looked fabulous as ever. This is a product I see myself using for many years to come. I currently have an order on the way with different glosses and more colors. I cant wait to see how the colors look!
Overall I give this product a 5 out of 5 stars. If your interested in getting kit use this link. https://www.facebook.com/groups/150200955620912/
This D.I.Y is super easy and fun. What you will need is a white t shirt or tank top, rubbing alcohol 70% or higher, sharpie markers and an eye dropper. The method I used was to make dots in a circle. You don’t need to put a lot of circles just a few would be fine. I did 4 on the front and three on the back. Once you have the desired number of circles use the dropper and apply the rubbing alcohol. Don’t worry about the color soaking through that is what makes it look so cool.
I also twisted the shirt up and applied more color to make it look a little different. Also the first time you wash it to make sure your wash it by hand as the color tends to run a little bit.
Here are my results:
First off I was never really a Starbucks person until I realized that they don’t just sell coffee. I was completely oblivious to the fact that they sold other drinks and even food. So below are some of my favorite drinks and how you can order them!
Raspberry Milk Tea (iced black tea)
- 4 pumps of raspberry syrup
- 2 pumps of toffee nut
- coconut milk or almond milk
- no water
Super Fruit Tea
- Iced green tea
- 3-4 pumps of liquid sugar
- a scoop of strawberries
- a scoop of limes
- Iced passion tea
- soy milk
- vanilla syrup
- a scoop of blueberry
- coconut milk
- Strawberry Acai Starbucks Refresher
- scoops of strawberries
Pink Ombre Drink
- Coconut milk

but this drink has been added to the year round menu so just ask for the pink ombre drink.
Those are my top 5 favorite Starbucks drinks. I hope this helps you and let me know in the comments below what your favorite drink is.
The Great Nations of Rendaraia by Jayel Draco was such an awesome book to read. I read it in two sittings and enjoyed every minute of reading it. What made the book so good was how well written the story line was and how the book was written in the first person. another amazing part of this book is that it is an art book which means the pages are illustrated as well as colored, meaning they are not white like normal books they look distressed or old.
Overall reading this book was fun. I could really put myself into one of the nations lifestyles. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars due to the fact that it was overall a great book and I can’t wait until the next book comes out!

This quiz wasn’t very long and honestly worth the time. It gives you so much information about your life. My results showed that I am The Campaigner, I am Extraverted – 71%, Intuitive – 70%, Feeling – 59%, Prospecting – 72%, Turbulent – 80%. My role is a diplomat and my strategy is social engagement.
Let me break down the results a little more.
MIND- This trait determines how we interact with our environment. Extraverted individuals prefer group activities and get energized by social interaction. They tend to be more enthusiastic and more easily excited than introverts.
ENERGY- This trait shows where we direct our mental energy. Intuitive individuals are very imaginative, open-minded and curious. They prefer novelty over stability and focus on hidden meanings and future possibilities.
NATURE- This trait determines how we make decisions and cope with emotions. Feeling individuals are sensitive and emotionally expressive. They are more empathic and less competitive than Thinking types and focus on social harmony and cooperation.
TACTICS- This trait reflects our approach to work, planning, and decision-making. Prospecting individuals are very good at improvising and spotting opportunities. They tend to be flexible, relaxed nonconformists who prefer keeping their options open.
IDENTITY- This trait underpins all others, showing how confident we are in our abilities and decisions. Turbulent individuals are self-conscious and sensitive to stress. They are likely to experience a wide range of emotions and to be success-driven, perfectionistic and eager to improve.
Honestly, the results are pretty spot on with my personality. You guys should try it out and let me know your results in the comments. https://www.16personalities.com/free-personality-test
Overall I loved this book. It was well written and easy to follow. It was pretty spot on once I found out what my chakra was. There is a small quiz inside the book to determine your master chakra. When I took this quiz I wasn’t quite sure of the results because I had one answer that was every color but I had two that where orange so I went on to her website and took the quiz and found out I was am orange for sure. ( http://www.awakenedbystephanie.com/master-color-quiz/ )
After reading the section on the orange chakra I realized it was pretty spot on with my personallity. The Orange chakra is the Sacral Chakra. Learn more about my chakra here http://www.chakra-anatomy.com/sacral-chakra-colors.html .
There are two ways you can read this book. One being in its entirety or read just the color you are. I read mine and my husbands. In the back of the book their are workbooks for each color. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars due to the fact its a easy read and it was spot on.

Overall I loved this book. It’s about a girl that was sheltered and decided one day to actually get out and about. She made a trip to a Starbucks where she meets a guy who she finds very very attractive. Then something happened and he felt the need to protect her and he ended up getting hurt pretty bad and she poses as his fiance even tho they just met. The first book of this series is mostly about how they fell in love and about their life together.
This was a very well written book. My favorite thing about this book is how well she describes every detail. It’s almost like I am apart of the story and I can see the characters in my mind. The only bad thing is that it is a long book. I am not usually a person to read long books. Another thing is if you’re under 18 I would suggest for you to get parental permission before reading due to some very adult content toward the end of the book.
This book is a great combination of happy, sad and romance. There were a few errors in the book but have already discussed with the author so there is no reason to mention exactly what errors. She ends the book with a major cliff hanger and you’re like come on what happens. I think it would be awesome if in the print copy at the ended there was like a excerpt from the next book just to put your mind at ease a little. I give it a 4 out of 5 stars only due to the fact that its a little outside of my normal reading likes. Book will be released at the end of July!
