Makeup Review: NYC Eyeliner

Today, I will be reviewing the ‘New York Color: HD Automatic Eyeliner’.

C__Data_Users_DefApps_AppData_INTERNETEXPLORER_Temp_Saved Images_Untitled(1)

Website‘s Description: Twist, line and smudge! HD Automatic Eyeliner makes your dream eye look easy and speedy. This skinny pencil just twists up to reveal a perfect point that makes applying color a breeze. At the other end is a brilliant pro-style blending tool for customizing your look.

Where I purchased item: Walmart

Quality: Long lasting and waterproof. It went on very smoothly and would last all day!

Color: #001 Black

 NYC New York Color HD Waterproof Automatic Eyeliner, 0_009 fl oz

Cons: When I would put it on there were these little ‘specks’ that would fly off and go into my eye and irritate it. I don’t know if I just got a defected one or if this has happens normally.

My Rating: 8/10

Summary: Overall, for my first eyeliner it was great! I would definitely be willing to try this product in other colors. I just hope that my product was the only defected one.

Do you were eyeliner? If so, what brand? Have you tried this one? Let me know in the comments below. Later darlings!<3

5 Things I Look Forward To This Summer

Hey darlings! Sorry I haven’t been posting very much lately. Life’s been kinda crazy (in a good way) for me these past few weeks! But, I’ll be talking about that in another post! Today I will share my list of things I’m looking forward to this summer (as you can obviously tell if you read the title). Onwards!

1. No more schoolwork! 

…Unless you’re homeschooled like me. Then you just get to do less during the break. 😛

2. Swimming!

Who doesn’t like swimming?! Whether at the beach or at the pool, you can have a blast cooling off in the water during a hot, sunny day.

3. Catching up on my Goodreads Book Challenge!

I have currently read 7 out of 85 books so far (currently reading ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’//Tolkien). I have quite a bit of catching up to do! (O_o)

4. My family is visiting!

Last time they visited was Father’s Day week of 2013, so I’m pretty pumped! I can’t wait to be able to go on lots of car trips this summer! XD

5. I’ll be turning 17?!

I actually have mixed feelings about this. Like, seriously, WHO STOLE MY CHILDHOOD?! Although I am glad I’ll be turning 17, because it’s that perfect age between ‘Immature 16’ and ‘Adult 18’. 

Well, that’s all for my list! What are 5 things that YOU’RE looking forward to this summer? ❤

Book Review: Eye of the Oracle

Hey darlings! I’m really excited because this is my very first book review! I got this book from the ‘Teach Them Diligently’ convention last year, and I barely got around to reading it in February. Since I got sick for almost a week at the end of March, I had some spare time to finish it up. Here’s my review!

Eye of the Oracle by Bryan Davis // Review

‘What ancient mysteries lurk behind the amazing stories in the Dragons in our Midst series? Eye of the Oracle takes the reader back in time to the days when dragons abounded. From the era just before Noah’s ark, through the battles between dragons and mankind in the time of King Arthur, and to the haunting presence of dragons in our day, this stunning prequel reveals the mysteries that led to the bestselling fantasy adventure that began with Raising Dragons.

How did dragons survive the flood? Who helped preserve an ancient evil force that led to the demise of the dragons in the days of King Arthur? What heroic sacrifices kept that evil from exterminating the dragon race forever? If you enjoyed the heart-stopping action and spiritual depth of the first four books in this series, you won t want to miss the astonishing story that began it all. Eye of the Oracle will captivate young and old alike, and it will challenge every reader to search deep within for answers to the mysteries in their own hearts.’ -From Goodreads

Genre: Fantasy // Christian Fiction // Fiction

My thoughts: OH, MAN! Before I read this book I heard amazing things about Bryan Davis, so I had pretty high expectations for this book. Not only did it surpass my expectations, but it’s now one of my favorite books!

Writing Style: It is very easy to read through, so you can get through the 600 pages quick enough. His writing style was a fun read!

Story line: The story line was great and kept me craving for more with each page turn.

Characters: All (good) characters were totally lovable! My favorites were probably Makaidos, Elam, Valcor, and Bonnie.

Favorite Part: All of it was great, but I really enjoyed the last third of the book the best.

Cons: From what I can remember, there wasn’t anything major that I didn’t agree with.

My Rating: 5 Stars *****

Conclusion: My only regret is not reading this book sooner. If you haven’t read this book or any other book by Bryan Davis yet, DO IT! You will not be disappointed! ❤

T.T.D. Homeschool Convention

On March 18-19th, my mom, sister,and I got to go to the ‘Teach Them Diligently’ homeschool convention! (It was actually the 17th-19th, but we couldn’t go that Thursday.) We actually got to work at the ‘Mystery of History’ booth. It was pretty hectic at times, but it was a great experience. We went to a few workshops and also got to meet Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin and Josh and Jordan Taylor from Blimey Cow!

My brother got this awesome ‘Sting’ sword (from the Hobbit) from the Sturdi Guard booth! (We just need to get some sandpaper to smooth out some of the edges.)

Like seriously, when I hold it, I fell like I can take on a whole legion of Orcs! (Well, maybe with the help of the Fellowship or Thorin’s Company! :P)

So that’s it, darlings! Hope you enjoyed this post! ❤
