preview of my itty bitty Urban Outfitters haul

I know what some of you may be thinking. "WTF". Well, as soon as I saw these shoes online, I had a mini heart attack. Later, I proceeded to add them to my digital cart and check out. :)

Deena & Ozzy Electro Oxford ($49) - These shoes are KILLER. I cannot wait to receive them. I've never seen a shoe like these in real life!  They remind me of the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson. So, automatically, that makes these a MUST-HAVE.

Deena & Ozzy Neon Patent Combat Boot ($19.99) - I've been obsessed with neon colors my entire life. When I checked the sale section of Urban Outfitters, and saw they had neon combat boots, I couldn't believe my eyes! You see combat boots everywhere this time of year, BUT have you seen any neon colored ones? I sure haven't. Also, the price kinda made them a done deal for me. They were originally around $40, and I got them for about half off. I think I'm in love...

With the holidays here, that means HOLIDAY MAKEUP!
I am here for holiday makeup! :D

NOTD: Sinful Colors In The Mist (from the Enchanted Collection!)

Don't wake me up, up, up, up, up, up....
Don't wake me up, don't wake me...
I don't wanna fall, fall, fall, fall asleep...
I don't wanna fall, unless I'm falling for GREEN!

He he he...yea...I love green polish, and this baby, here, is NO exception!
All Fall long, I've been wearing dark colors on my nails, and even my clothes (surprisingly). Usually, I don't let the seasons determine my color palette as far as makeup, nail polish, and clothing is concerned.  I have no idea what has taken over me this year, but I'm totally on a seasonal color scheme, and I don't mind it at all... :-\

This polish is In The Mist by Sinful Colors. It's one of the new polishes Sinful Colors released for Fall 2012, from their Enchanted Collection.

I love the murkiness of this polish! "Odd" colors always have a way of tickling my fancy (LOL).

I noticed how In The Mist looks different in each of my photos, but the first one is the most color accurate. 
This polish only needed 2 coats to reach the opacity you see here! YAY!!! I love 2-coaters!

This polish is available at Walgreens and Rite-Aid, for only $1.99! \o/

What do you think of In The Mist? Perfect greenish-grey creme? Too dirty lookin' for your taste? Let me know below!

Rihanna "Diamonds" Music Video & Makeup Look

We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky....

Rihanna has finally released her video for her amazingly awesome song Diamonds!!!
I had patiently waited for this video for weeks, and now it's HERE! \o/
In this video, Rihanna SLAYED.

The video plays out like a mysterious story. You'll see a bit of chaos during the video, but even through the chaos, the lovely Ri-Ri is at peace :)
Diamonds music video also highlights the different elements like earth, water, wind, and fire in each different scene. Don't know why. It just does. *shrugs*

Sidenote: Did yall see that arm of the hand she was grabbing throughout the video?!? Did that arm remind you of anyone in particular *cough* Chris Brown *cough* or was it just me?

And, of course, her lovely eye makeup in the video just takes the cake!

You can see the Diamonds video below:

I loved her makeup in the scenes with the horses, so I recreated the makeup look and made it my own :)

NOTD: Sinful Colors Muse (from the Enchanted Collection!)

After my last video, I had a few people ask me what I was wearing on my nails. Well, the wait is OVA peeps!

On my video That's That Stuff I Don't Like Tag, I was wearing Sinful Colors Muse, from the Enchanted Collection.
Muse is a dark grey creme polish, with a tinge of purple to it. Purple is one of my favorite colors, so you already know this polish is awesome to me. 

For the opacity you see here, I only used 2 coats of polish! \o/
I love a good 2-coater...

This polish is available at Walgreens and Rite-Aid. If you like it, I say grab it FAST, because it's limited edition and only $1.99!!!

What do yo think of Muse? Lovely & dark? Or too dark & murky? Let me know below!

Spotted & Hauled!: NEW Sinful Colors Enchanted Collection

I am a huge fan of dusky, dark creme polishes. I've always liked the dusty quality to them, for some reason. They're not what girls typically wear, ya know? Not bright, red or pink, and cheery, and I loves it!
If you're also a fan of dark and dusty creme polishes, then the Enchanted collection from Sinful Colors will be right up your alley!

I picked up these murky beauties from my local Rite Aid, where they were $1.99 each...SUCH a bargain! There are 8 polishes total in this collection, but I only bought 6. I already owned two from the collection: Last Chance and Rain Storm

The six brand spankin' new colors I purchased are (from left to right) Muse, In The Mist, Jungle Trail, Mesmerize, Inkwell (my favorite, so far!), and Smokin.

I absolutely love the look of Inkwell! I know it looks black in pictures, and even more so in person, BUT it's a very, VERY dark and vampy purple! It's quite lovely and mesmerizing, to be honest. The fact that it tricked me at first glance into thinking it was black totally made me grab it...I knew something had to be up! No way was Sinful Colors going to give me a regular black polish amongst all these smokey delights! Nawl, not happenin'. And I was right! ^__^

So far, I love all the colors from this collection. They are SO on point for the fall season, and creme polishes and my favs. If you're someone that's not typically into dusty colors, I suggest you give one of these polishes a try. At $1.99, it won't hurt ya to try just one... ;P
*FYI* It has come to my attention that the Sinful Colors Enchanted collection is also being sold at Walgreens, but under a different name, At Walgreens, they're calling it the Sinful Colors Muse collection (named after one of the polishes from the collection...hmmm). I find it weird that they chose the name change for Walgreens stores, but whatevs.

Have you seen this collection yet? If so, did you pick up anything that tickled your fancy?

I have not been excited about flats in a long LOOOONG time...
that is, until I saw THESE babies!

They are indeed shoes shaped in the form of a mouse, but not just any mouse! These shoes are shaped like an edgy, fierce studded mouse! :)
These shoes are by the brand Bumper, a shoe brand I had not heard of until I found these lovely creatures! These shoes are called the Bumper Sappi Studded Flat.

As soon as I saw these shoes, I knew they were meant for me. However, it was upon further inspection that I realized these shoes reminded me of shoes I had longed for previously but never purchased because of the price...

The shoes I purchased are the budget-friendly version of the Marc By Marc Jacobs Mouse Flat!!!
The Marc By Marc Jacobs Mouse Flat sells for $250, while the Bumper Sappi Studded Flat was only $26 total, after shipping, because of a 20% off code I used! 
The only difference I can tell between the two versions of the mouse flat shoes is that the Marc By Marc Jacobs version is made of leather, and the Bumper version is made of velvet! I CAN DEAL
♥ ♥ ♥

I am overly excited about the Bumper mouse flat, I admit! I can't believe that FINALLY a dupe of the Marc By Marc Jacobs Mouse Flat has hit the streets! I've had my eye on the Marc Jacobs version for ages, but the price was not a price I was willing to pay (250 bucks for a pair of flats? NO THANK YOU...). Thankfully, now I won't have to! :D
If you're interested in the Bumper version of the mouse flat, I found them HERE! 

What do you think of these Bumper shoes?
Have you ever owned any shoes by this brand before? If so, how did you like them?
If not, are you interested now?
As far as I'm concerned, Bumper has gained a new fan!

MAJOR Trend of Fall 2012: Camouflage!

This Fall, you're going to be seeing camouflage EVERYWHERE, and camouflage EVERYTHING. Even your favorite celebrities *cough* Miley Cyrus *cough* are rockin' camo any chance they get!
There's an undeniable abundance of love of the military trend this season, and I don't think the trend is going anywhere, any time soon.
Something I'm sure everyone appreciates about the camouflage trend is that it can look edgy, girlie, cool, urban, or even elegant depending on how a person styles it! You've gotta love a versatile trend! ♥

What are you thoughts on this fashionable tribute to army influences? I plan on giving the trend some MAJOR love this Fall season!
