Google +

I'm still very new to this, but I imagine that I don't have much of a choice since it seems many things are switching over and in order for me to continue using them I'll have to join Goolge+.

So please join me and follow my blog page! I will follow back. =)

Makeup favorites

Before I start I can't help but post some pictures of these flowers that my amazing boyfriend got me. <3 I've never been given flowers before and it means so much to me that he did that, I can't even explain.



But anyways! Back to my original post...

I know I switch out what I use almost every month but these are my favorites at the moment.



I just bought the Maybelline Full 'n soft mascara and so far I loooove it! It was one of the top rated mascaras on Makeup ally so I decided I've give it a try, so glad I did. Also... I don't want to jinx myself but if you have trouble with mascara flaking this may be the mascara for you. I wore it all day with no flaking and my lashes looked lovely while staying super black and full.

Another thing I picked up was Revlon PhotoReady foundation. The thing about this is that I already own PhotoReady in 001 Ivory and I stopped using it for the longest time because it made me look crazy pink and shimmery. After testing many different foundations that just dried out my skin and made me look cakey I decided to give it another chance. A few days ago I wore it again and realized that didn't dry out my skin nor did it make me look cakey. As for the shimmer I've decided it's really not as crazy looking as I though and it also makes my dry dehydrated skin look a lot more dewy with a nice glow to it. I also did some research on my shade and saw that there actually was a yellow toned foundation and that I didn't have to worry about looking pink anymore thanks to shade 002 Vanilla. :) I should of figured that out a long time ago but i'm so use to picking the lightest color since i'm so pale, how was I to know that the second color up is usually the yellow undertone. -_- Oh well.

Lastly my Sigma F80 and Lancome 'Le crayon khol' in Black coffee. Not too much to say about these considering I've talked about my Sigma brush in another post and the eyeliner is just... well a dark brown eyeliner I enjoy using instead of black all the time. :P

would be nice...

It's been so long since I've bought something for myself. I actually haven't bought anything since last year and it's slowly killing me inside. hahaha...

So i made a little list of some things that would be nice to have once I can afford it again. Let's hope I don't run out of anything before that time comes...

-Urban Decay book of shadows 4

-Sigma F45 buffer brush

-Cover girl lash blast (As much as i hate the brand this is a good mascara.)

-M.A.C. mineralized skin finish natural in Light

-M.A.C. pro longwear foundation in NC15 (so pale)

Day 23: Favorite Movie

Ugh, this is really hard.
I'm pretty sure I mentioned that I love watching movies and I watch a lot of them, so picking a favorite is very hard. I think a movie that I will always love and never get sick of would be 'Signs'.


Day 22: What's in your purse?

So I've clearly failed this challenge but that doesn't mean i'm not going to do it!

Here's what's in my purse, not very exciting compared to others.



  1. My little camera I like to try and take everywhere i go.
  2. My bus pass... Haven't gotten a new one for awhile though.
  3. My red tiny gloves so my hands don't freeze.
  4. Naproxen. (It's actually for my migraines and works so good/fast)
  5. My wallet.
  6. Sephora mini lip gloss 'In the buff'.
  7. Revlon lipstick 'Pink sugar'.
  8. Nail file - there's no way i'm going an entire day with a sharp edge on my nail!
  9. My house keys.
  10. Tweezers! I always need these.
  11. Mentos. :D
  12. My baby ipod shuffle that i hardly use anymore for some reason.


Also my usual up-loader for pictures (tinypic) is acting very weird by uploading a picture of Henry Cavil (see bottom photo) instead of the file I brought up..... Making my very annoyed and confused.

Day 21: Favorite Picture of yourself ALL TIME Why?

I've never actually had a favorite picture of myself... take my facebook profile picture album for instance. I have my favorite pictures of myself on there, the ones that I think look the best... I've never used a picture of myself repetitively because I take new ones when i'm bored as an excuse to try new makeup looks and have a little 'photo shoot' session with myself. A little lame, but I find it fun and kind of a hobby that I have.


I kinda turned a simple blog post into something way more complicated so i'll stop right there. haha

Since there's no way for me to ever choose a favorite picture of myself, i'll show you one I really enjoy yet, i've never put on facebook.

Day 20: Nicknames

Probably one of the shortest posts (with no picture) I will ever do but here are some nicknames/joke names I have. There's not a whole lot you can do with 'Aubrey'...



Jambi (haha)

Drake... >.>

Day 19: Something you miss

Ugh, I've been putting these next two posts off for a while now because they have me stumped. I don't know what to write.

Something that I miss...

Honestly, I don't miss a whole lot. I'm happy with my life and how it's going but if I really had to choose something I would say I miss having no worries and being a child. And when I say child I mean like 12 and under, those we're the good old days. :) I loved going to the beach swimming, camping, having fires in the back year and when staying up until 12 was a huge deal. Even though being young was very fun and for the most part stress free, I enjoy growing up and seeing the world in a new way. I'm very happy with life right now despite the challenges and stress it might bring.

I'm curious, what do you miss?

What do you think?

I'm trying to decide what I should get, if it even should be a necklace or something different.
I want to buy something that will have meaning to me; something that i can think of as a 'good luck' charm in a way.
Here are a few pieces I've stumbled upon, which one do you like?

-karma necklace, gold dipped.
(I like this one a lot)

Esty - Personalized Sterling Silver Wishbone Necklace
(A second favorite, not as much as the Karma one though.)

And that's all I could find for now, if you have any suggestions let me know! Just keep in mind, I like small dainty jewelry.

Day 18: Favorite Place to Eat

I feel bad that i'm so behind on this 30 day challenge. I should be done it already, so my apologies for spamming you with posts. I just want to finish it. :)

241 Saint Mary's Road, Winnipeg, MB

I think I'd have to say this place is my favorite so far of everywhere I've been. I've only been to La P'tite France once last year and I seriously haven't stopped thinking about it.
Maybe I just really like French cuisine... Whatever it is I highly recommend trying it out if you're in the Winnipeg area. And yes it looks like quite the dive but the food is amazing and very worth the trip. Oh, I also forgot to mention I was there for lunch and had the braised beef sandwich, so I have no idea how the dinner menu is.

Day 17: Something you're looking forward to

I want to live by myself and enjoy being young finally...

I live about 2 miles outside of a SMALL town with nothing in it. I also can't drive, so finding a job, and going places with friends is so hard and most days i find myself sitting at home, alone with nothing to do. Not to mention bills eating away at my bank account until there's nothing there.
It's very depressing.

Day 16: Dream house

Ah, this is a tricky one for me. I don't have a dream house in mind, I never have and I never will.

(heh... I couldn't help myself.)

I want a lot for myself but i'm also very simple and as long as it's a place I can be proud of when I have people over then I'm happy. I dream big but I also know whats realistic and whats not so my dream house is probably pretty boring to most.
For the sake of this post I'll find pictures of places I thought looked nice.


This is so pretty, but not somewhere I'd like to live.


Day 15: Bible verse

I actually have never read the Bible, BUT 10 points for who ever guesses what movie this is from. ;)

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee. - Ezekiel 25:17

Day 14: A picture of you last year - how have you changed?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Well besides the obvious hair color change, I've grown more as a person then i ever have.

Going to school gave me a new found confidence; I've never felt happier. I don't feel afraid of things changing and having my own independence/space. I feel like I wasted a lot of my life waiting on people and putting them before myself and it's my time to shine now.

Friday, February 3, 2012

So I took a few pictures a couple of days ago, and instead of deleting them all... I decided to throw them on here. >.>

It was suppose to be a romantic/valentines doll inspired makeup look, but that didn't go as planned.
But here you go anyways.
