Monday Q&A: August 13th, 2012

So for some reason, my blog is not letting me insert pictures to my posts. Boo :( Help?

ANYWHO, second post of the day, WHOOP WHOOP. My Moday Q&A sesh is about to begin!!

1.) Mood:
Icky. I found a bag of M&Ms in the fridge.. And let's just leave it at that.....
2.) If you had to guess, how many beauty products would you say you use a day?
On a makeup free day, just do my skincare (which 3-4 products) and basic general hygiene  stuff. But when I want to look semi-decent, I would say around 15-20.

4.) Current nail polish: 
Essie Muchi Muchi with OPI Happy Anniversary on top :)

5.) What is your favorite dinner dish?
PASTA. All day, everyday. Especially if it's spaghetti with Momma's homemade red sauce. 
6.) Current outfit: 
Athletic shorts and one of my tie-dye shirts. AKA, 'Carolyn's trademark summer outfit'.
7.) Do you like to dance?
I danced for 9 years! But I must say, sometimes cranking up the music and going all out in my room is way more satisfying! 

8.) Can you drive a manual transmission/stick shift car?
I am currently learning to drive (in general) and I am being forced to learn on a stick shift, yes. Uber difficult, I must say. 
9.) What is the last beauty product you purchased?
Covergirl Clean Pressed Powder; a new staple!
10.) Weekly goals:
Learn 3 pages of music in time for next week. Oh, and memorize it. Yeah, wish me luck!!

Haul + Review:!

Today's video is a haul of my most recent online purchase; my first Julep Maven Box!

The video:

After hearing some girls on YouTube talk about the insanely great quality of Julep polishes, I decided to give them a try, considering I only paid one penny for my first box.

NOTD: China Glaze 'Heaven'

Today's NOTD (Nail of the Day) is my favorite nude polish; it's more of a peachy tone which compliments my skin better than a color with a brown undertone. The color is very elegant looking and gives my nails a clean look. This color is more of a pearly finish than one with small shimmer in it, which I prefer.

Taken in Natural Light

China Glaze retails anywhere from $4-$7 at Sally's, Ulta and select drugstores.

What's your favorite nude nailpolish? Share in the comments below!

The Video:

In this video, I show you how to create a fun, bright summer makeup look, inspired by a shirt I wore for a town wide event last night. The look wasn't too matchy-matchy, and perfect for dressing up your look :)
