top 5: favorite movies on netflix.

When I’m not busy with work or schoolwork, you can usually find me browsing through Netflix. I became a subscriber about a year ago and I haven’t regretted my decision ever since. These are my all-time 5 favorite movies currently available on Netflix:

  1. Begin Again

    Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightly shine in this musical adventure in NYC. Everything is coming up roses...

  2. Clueless


    A ’90s classic, Alicia Silverstone is so totally clueless that even Paul Rudd can’t figure out if she’s a total bonehead.

  3. 10 Things I Hate About You


    Julia Stiles may be a bitch, but Heath Ledger is so hot he could melt any cold exterior. Plus, young Joseph Gordon-Levitt is such a cutie.

  4. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days


    Kate Hudson may know how to flip the switch, but Matthew McConaughey also knows how to play this game.

  5. Bridget Jones’s Diary


    Renee Zellweger and two British hotties. Will it be Hugh Grant or Colin Firth? Only at the curry-turkey buffet could something this outrageous happen.

new urban decay products: hot or not?

As an avid UD Junkie, last month I ordered 2 new products from Urban Decay’s Spring 2017 lineup and I wanted to do an honest review about how they worked for me.









All Nighter Setting Spray                                      Rating: 4 out of 5 (Hot) 

img_0304UD’s img_0311all nighter setting spray is definitely a dream product! A spray that keeps your makeup fresh all day? Impossible!

Enter this product: this magical spray will lock down anything you put on your face for 13+ hours!

Pros: As a dry-skinned gal myself, this product keeps me from looking “cakey” all day. One spray goes a long way! It has also kept my makeup on during a sweaty concert, a rainy day, and a long night. Oh, and did I mention the packaging is adorable?

Cons: It has a bit of a weird smell when it’s sprayed, but it goes away. And at $31 a bottle, my wallet cried a little.

Day of Testing: Take One


*13 hours +!! I applied a full-face of makeup and sprayed it at 9:40 am. 3 college classes, lunch, work, a lab, dinner, and a meeting later…my makeup still looked pretty good. It was starting to fade a little bit, but it lasted well until I took it off at 11:14 pm.*







Vice Liquid Lipstick (Trivial)                              Rating: 2 out of 5 (Not)

img_0308This was a good idea on UD’s partimg_0309, but this just didn’t live up to the hype for me. Maybe I picked the wrong shade? The shade Trivial was described on their website as a “comfort matte pink nude” but it has a sparkle to it that I did not expect. I really wanted to love this, but I just don’t.

Pros: The packaging is cute and the color does look decent when applied with a lip brush.img_0317

Cons: It doesn’t dry down all the way because of the sparkles. It also skips when you apply it with the applicator it comes with and leaves spots. The color transfers quickly and only lasts 4-5 hours at most. It also gets chunky in the center of my lips after about an hour. I’ll not going to keep it because $18 for this terrible quality isn’t worth it.
