Sinful Colors : Rich in Heart

Hi Everyone !
I think the first time I saw the Sinful Colors nail polish brand was over the summer in my local Walgreens, and after purchasing one color and using it, I went back to Walgreens the next day and nearly lost my mind trying to decide which colors to buy. & that was prettymuch what I spent my money on during the summer.
After moving back in on campus, I haven't gone to a Walgreens just because I don't have a car and I'm too lazy to walk to the nearest one, but last week while shopping in Target I noticed the brand and nearly had a heart attack.
If you're unfamiliar with Sinful Colors nail polish, they come in a variety of more than 100 COLORS with really great payoff. Alot of the colors don't need more than one coat. So back to Target... naturally I was tempted to get every color but I stopped myself, and reached for a dark burgundy color with small red flecks, that I'm in love with at the moment.
Rich in Heart:
Like I mentioned before, Sinful Colors has great color payoff [This is only one coat] and the brush makes application really easy which is great!

Mike Tompkins - acapella cover of Rihanna: Only Girl in The World

Ohk, so I definitely should be taking a nap since I have to work tonight, and super early in the morning but I couldn't help but post this. I love Mike Tompkins. I posted another one of his acapella vids about a month ago, I just think his talent is really unique and I greatly appreciate this one. There's a guest appearance by Shad[ i'l post his link at the end of the post]
It's been a while since he's posted something on YouTube, but mike was featured on Ellen and Perez Hilton's blog earlier this yar, so he's been busy.

Subscribe to his youtube channel if you haven't already. The link will be at the end of the post.

First off, I know I suck for not posting anything but it's finals and my birthday just passed so I've been really busy with schoolwork. I'll be done this week and then I'm going back home for Christmas break, and I've already done some makeup looks I think you guys will like. I also got an email from one of you guys asking if I could do OOTD, I'm gonna also try to do that. SO be on the lookout for new things around DECEMBER 21-ISH.

Just filling everyone in, hope you all are doing well & goodluck to anyone else getting ready for finals. they're a bitch.

Warm Reds

It's finally December which means, finals are right around the corner and teachers are piling everything up which sucks. But after finals is the month long Holiday Break and I canNOT wait to go home and see my bestfriends, it's been too long.
Unfortunately I've prettymuch been on my deathbed these past couple days with one of the most disgusting coughs ever and I've been just doing homework in my living room surrounded by tissue boxes and walmart bags to try to keep from getting anyone else as sick as I am. But while procrastinating on a paper, I had time to put this look together. ENJOY=D
