Another great thing to do in Virginia. It's about 15 minutes away from my house to be exact. We go at least twice a year, because every time we go there are always animals that we want to see that are sleeping at the time. Like the past week that we went.

 Ipsy -

Pssst! Dry Shampoo - I have never really been into the dry shampoo. They are suppose to make your hair look like you've washed it but I think they all work the same. It left my hair greasy, but on a good note..it did leave my hair smelling great! 

Chella- Ivory Lace highlighter - I have never used one of these a day in my life. Actually I didn't even know what it was until I asked a co-worker who is knowledgeable about make-up, but now that I do, I love it. It brightened up my eyes right away!  I use it as part of my everyday make-up ( or when i put make-up on) I also found out that you can use it anywhere like a concealer! I'll have to try that out.

NYX Mosiac powder - I use this now as my blush when I'm getting ready at home. (since I have so many blushes) It goes on so perfect. It'll make you glow. If I get a little enough brush, I use it as blush and bronzer. With a big brush it's an all over bronzer.

J.cat cream palette - I don't use glitter shadow, let alone eyeshadow very often. Okay, I really never use it, but these colors are so gorgeous that I had to just show you! It goes on so smooth all over but very suttle! I also found out that this isn't even eye shadow! It's glitter for your body! I'll either be giving this to my best friend, or making a DIY Nail polish!!

I don't use lip liner at all so I actually gave this "Starlooks" lip liner to a good friend.

Since everything I got was pretty much make-up I just decided to take a picture of every thing being used in my JUNE Ipsy Box (except the dry shampoo & lip liner) I had a mini photo-shoot at work today,  I found it very hilarious! I hope you do too!! =)


Please excuse my eyebrows & pimple! DOH!

Birchbox -  

I loved the Shampoo and Conditioner so much I actually bought them from Birchbox.com
I had a lot of points and it worked. It made my hair so smooth and soft on the first wash! Which comes from the shampoo's Indian fig extract. "Also noteworthy: the softening olive oil peg-7 ester and strengthening rice proteins." - BIRCHBOX

Color Club - LONDON CALLING ; As bright as this color is, you would think this polish glows in dark, but it doesn't! Not my favorite but it is the trend for summer to be bright as ever! So I'll go with it =)


Laqa & co Lil Lip pencil- Red is totally not my color (on my lips at least) It is a great smooth shea-butter complex that moisturizes and coats lips with a glossy color. They also advertise that they never need to be sharpened! That is great! 

Suki Exfoliate foaming Cleanser - This organic lemongrass and chamomile-infused cleanser gently gets rid of dirt, oil, and makeup, while gently wiping away old layers of skin with nonabrasive sugar. Just use warm water, scoop a little into your fingers and message onto skin in a circular motion. I used to wipe all that make-up off my face, and I found it wipes it off a lot better then scrubbing in the shower for ten minutes with just soap alone! Check out the body scrub I made a few weeks back HERE ( great for an inexpensive gift!)

Taco Casserole

The other day my mom told me about this taco casserole that she saw on facebook, and of course I was at work and I couldn't get on facebook, so I had to google it. As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to make it. It didn't help that I was hungry at work either! ;) 

It's real simple and it's not even heavy considering I used ground turkey instead of beef, low sodium Taco Seasoning and reduced fat sour cream!

What you'll need; 
  • Tortilla Chips
  • 2 Tbs Olive Oil
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 3 pound Ground Turkey
  • 1 can corn
  • 2 packets of Taco Seasoning
  • 2 cans Black Beans, drained
  • 2 cup Salsa
  • 2 cup shredded Cheese
  • Olives
  • Light Sour Cream (A must for me!) 
  • Guacamole
  • Lettuce


Set the oven to 350.

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add onion and garlic. Saute 5 minutes, or until soft. Add meat & taco seasoning... Cook for about 5 minutes. Add beans, corn and salsa. Mix well and continue to cook for 5 more minutes.
Line the bottom of a casserole pan with tortilla chips, pressing down on them lightly to break them into little pieces. 
Next you spread the meat and bean mixture over the chips
Top with cheese

  Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. I even added Doritos around the sides!
Top with anything you'd like, I love olives, guacamole, and sour cream!!



I hope you all enjoy as much as I did!
