Egg - Action Selfie Cam


More over Snapchat filters- Egg - Action Selfie Cam is taking over. At least for me anyways. Egg has dozens upon dozens of different filters, that are wayyyy better than any of the ones that Snapchat has. Don't get me wrong, some of the ones on Snapchat are neat (there's like two of them) but these Egg ones are SO CUTE! Not just cute, but so fun! The majority of them have sounds and animations (which don't post well on here so here are a few linkies: [one] [two]).

This is one of my all time favorite selfies. The hair and the huge round glasses are just darling!





There's not just cute filters, there's also scary, weird, and just plain silly ones. There's basically something for everyone on it. The app hooks up to LINE, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for quick and easy sharing on social media. I really have to restrain myself from spamming too many pics of me to Twitter and IG, haha! Do you have a favorite selfie app for your phone? Which are your favorite filters? ♥

Too precious!

Smores Stuffed Braided Puff Pastry


This is probably my favorite dessert recipe of all time. For the moment anyways, haha! I mean, it's pretty much the best thing ever- chocolate, marshmallows, and Golden Grahams baked to flakey golden perfection. Since running into the recipe that inspired this on Instagram a few weeks ago I have made this four times. Since puff pastry comes two to a pack it makes sense to use them two nights in a row. Totally not excessive at all. Nope.


Ingredients:
1 Puff Pastry sheet
1 handful of mini chocolate chips
1 handful of mini marshmallows (or cut up big marshmallows into little pieces)
1 handful of Golden Graham cereal
1 egg, mixed
Powdered sugar for sprinkling

To Make:
- Prehead oven to 400 degrees F.
- Thaw puff pastry according to package, position chocolate chips, marshmallows, and cereal in center column.
- Use a knife to cut and fold pastry like in this video.
- With a spoon to cover the entire pastry with the mixed egg.
- Bake for about 20 minutes, or until your preferred color of gold.
- Immediately sprinkle with powdered sugar.
- Cut and enjoy!




I have no shame in telling you I ate the entire thing by myself while playing games in bed. It is adulting at it's best! Crumbs in bed be damned! It was so good so I have no regrets.

The other night we had some friends over for a scary movie night and I made this but filled it with mixed fruits (blueberries, black berries, strawberries, and raspberries) with a little bit of flour + butter crumbles. Instead of topping it with powdered sugar, I topped it with more flour + butter crumbles, and then once it was baked I added Cool Whip.

This dessert is so versatile and easy to make I feel like I'll be making it frequently from now on, for any (or no) occasion. What fillings do you think would be super tasty inside this? I was thinking maybe lemon + sugar would be fun to try. What do you think? ♥

Lashes

Real talk time- I was running on five hours of sleep, the little man was sick, and the boy cat (who's fixed) was acting like he was in heat. I hadn't even got out of bed and already the day felt like it was spiraling out of control. There was just no way I was going to let that happen. Getting out of bed I decided I was going to slay this day. Absolutely slay. Nothing, or no one, was going to get in my way, and if they did they were going to understand why I'm sometimes called the "Ice Queen". I was channeling my inner Sasha Fierce.

My clothes were on point. My makeup was on point. Right before I walked out the door I figured there was no better day than today to push myself out of my comfort zone and wear some lash extensions. It was the right decision.


BAM!

Never having worn lash extensions before I was a little nervous at first putting them on, but it really was a breeze. These were 3D Mink extensions and they were *ohmigosh so soft and fluffy*! I can definitely see why lots of ladies wear them, and I can see myself wearing them on more than one occasion.

On days like this I have found myself turning to the same makeup products that make me feel like a boss, and I want to share them with you. Some of these might look familiar as they're old staples, but some are new work horses that have worked with me almost all year.


1. Rimmel Stay Matte Primer // 2. Maybelline FitMe Foundation Stick (130)
3. Maybelline FitMe Foundation (128) // 4. Physicians Formula Bronze Booster


4. Maybelline Color Tattoo (Barely Branded) // 5. Rimmel Lash Accelerator Serum
6. Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara Lycra Flex (01) // 7. NYX Cosmetics Slide On Eye Pencil (Gun Metal)
8. Wet n Wild MegaLast Lip Color (Think Pink)

The bronzer I actually double up as eye shadow, and I layer it on the outside covers of my eyes over the cream shadow. The color is warm but sharp, if that makes any sense, and adds to the "fierce" look I go for.

The serum I've been using for almost a year now. One bad tube of mascara last year made my eye lashes fall out at an alarming rate. MY PRECIOUS EYELASHES WERE *MY THING*. It was the one aspect of my body I was most proud of. My mother has told me all my life how long and beautiful my eyelashes were from day one. Strangers would complement me on my long lashes. I can't tell you how upsetting it was to see them just falling out. Obviously I stopped using that mascara, swore off mascara for almost two months, then found this serum and have been using it ever since. I can honestly say it has helped my lashes grow. They aren't as long or as full as they used to be, but they're getting there. I'm hoping that if I keep up using it maybe by next year they'll be close to back to where they belong. Until then I might just have to keep wearing lash extensions, hehe!


To be honest these were a bit too long for me to wear on a daily basis (but were super fun!) so I'll probably be trimming them up for next time. And there will absolutely be a next time.

Have you ever worn lash extensions before? What type do you like? ♥
