I Get NAKED on Sundays !!

Now of course I don't literally get NAKED on Sundays, but on most Sundays I do attend church & I loooove using my NAKED palette by Urban Decay for my neutral eye makeup. I am a gal who loves using color but on Sundays I like to tone it down some and this palette is perfect for that. Every Sunday I try using a different color combination and this is the one I came up with for this week.

**Collective Haul & MakeUp Look**

Over this past weekend I did a tiny bit of shopping and managed to get a few items that had been on my wish list for a while now. So I'm happy about that. Also I decided to use a few items I purchased (I know lame right?) to do a MakeUp look & there will be pictures following the haul. 

** My Goodies**

*Betsey Johnson - Earrings & Watch (Purchased from Dillard's)*
These pewter dangling earrings were love at first sight! I love bows, hearts, and keys so these were these are like a triple treat for me. I also needed a new white watch for summer & I though this one was perfect because of the colorful numbers and rhinestones.

*My FIRST 15 pan MAC Eye Shadow Palette*
They are ALWAYS out when I go but luckily this time I got the LAST ONE!!

The 8 shadows I purchased are as follow:
*1st row left to right: Brule, Free to Be, Scene*
*2nd row: Bamboo, Beautiful Iris, Humid*
*3rd row: Brown Script, Chrome Yellow*
Any Suggestions for the Lucky #7??

*I had a few Cover Girl coupons so I picked up these few items from Target*
*Last Blast Length in Blackest Black*
*Queen Collection, Natural Hue Minerals in Ebony Bronze 1*
*Eye Enhancer in Aqua Paradise (FREE w/purchase of Mascara)

*E.L.F. Gel Eye Liner in Coffee*

*The Infamous MUFE #92 from Sephora (I now see what all the hype is about)*
*My horrid camera does it no justice*

Now on to the Make Up Look........

I used a few of the items purchased to create this coral and purple w/blue glitter look. I think this is perfect for these HOT summer nights! I paired it with coral cheeks and nude/coral lips.

*Products Used*

E.L.F. Gel Eyeliner - Coffee (for brows)
MAC e/s Free to Be (lid), Bamboo (transition crease color), Brule (highlight)
MUFE #92 (crease)

My Dream Maker

Now everyone knows the hottest shoes right now are the ones with the "Red Bottoms"! I just wanted to share my all time favorite pair, the Ambertina. These shoes have been spotted on celebrities such as Beyonce and Nicki Minaj, which you would have to be making top dollar to afford these because the retail for 2395$. Talk about a pretty penny well quite a few pretty pennies for that matter!! This gorgeous shoe has gold leather and burgundy satin straps that criss-cross at the toe with an additional gold strap towards the middle of the shoe, each gold strap has it's own buckle. My favorite part of the shoe is the back and the towering 6" heel covered in rhinestones. And of course the signature red sole. This shoe is just magnificent and simply to die for. They are defintely at the top of my wish list!
