Letting go of bad friends

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

Hey rose petals!,

Today's post isn't going to be on the beauty side of things. It's going to be on how to let go of bad friends who are bringing you down. Everyone has that 1 friend that just isn't beneficial to your life, but you keep them around for the sake of the friendship. Not all friendships need to be close and not all friendships are a healthy. Your friends should be there to support you and let you know when you're going down a wrong direction. No one should have a friend who only encourages them to do bad things and brings them down with their negativity.

How to know when your friend is a bad friend

  1. They encourage your bad behavior. Friends should be keep you on the right path. Not bring you down. Any friend that pressures you to do bad things or lets you do them knowing it's wrong, is not a friend.
  2. They are never there for you. If you're always the shoulder your friend cries on, but it's not the same the other way around, let them go. They only want you to be available to them and they don't care to be available to you. 
  3. They always borrow money and NEVER pay it back. A true friend wouldn't disrespect you by not paying you back any money you lent them. You were nice enough to lend them the money, they should be nice enough to give it back. 
  4. You make excuses for them. If you constantly have to justify why they reacted a certain way or did something and blame yourself, let them go. When your other friends are pointing out the bad that your other friend is doing, take the advice. 
  5. You constantly fight. We all have that one friend that we generally get into fights with. But if after every fight she's calling you all sorts of names and telling your secrets, she's not a friend. 
  6. They're not supportive. If you're always going to your friends games and he/she never shows up to yours, they may not be a good friend. Friends support you with all you're doing. 
Those are some of the main reasons why I'm not friends with certain women and men anymore. You just have to realize that even though you may like them as a person, they aren't necessarily a good friend. In order to have a positive life, you must have positive people in it. People who are negative and just bring you down, you shouldn't surround yourself with. What other ways do you identify a bad friend? Leave a comment down below!

Favorite Fall Lippies

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

Hey rose buds,

Today's blog is going to be on my favorite fall lipsticks to wear. They vary from brands like Cover Girl to Urban Decay. I have 7 in total. 2 of which are matte, while the rest are your classic shine lipsticks. Also 1 lip liner that can literally go with all the lipsticks.

As you can see on the right I have all the lipsticks lined up and the liner. The swatches on my arm go from the lipsticks from the left to the right. As you can tell, they're all like berry colored lipsticks. Absolutely perfect for the fall. I apologize for the quality of the pictures because I'm using my phone to take the pictures and not a professional camera. 

Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Standout. 

The first color is this color called Standout from Revlon. It's one of their ColorBurst lip balm. I'm obsessed with this color. The picture doesn't capture the color right, but it's this deep burgundy sort of color. It's so smooth when you apply it on your lips too. Feels like a chapstick, but looks like a matte lipstick. Brownie points for it being matte because I just adore matte anything.

Covergirl Bistro Burgundy 
The next color is just an ordinary lipstick from Covergirl in the color Bistro Burgundy. It applies very smoothly and feels like it's conditioning my lips. The color is a brownish burgundy without being too dark or too light. Again, the picture just doesn't do it justice.

Wet n Wild Dark Wine
From Wet n Wild, this lipstick in the color Dark Wine and just so... I can't find the word to describe it. It reminds me of when I was younger and my mother would wear darker lipstick or liner. It has like a classic vintage tone to it and that's what I think of when I put it on. Not too dark, just the perfect shade of wine. I'll click my glass to that!

Mac Heaux
From RiRi's line with Mac, I have the color Heaux. I fell in love with this lipstick when I bought it months ago. It was my first matte lipstick and from Mac as well. It's creamy, but not as smooth as my other lipsticks. It feels like it drags on my lips when I first put it on and you dare not smudge it! Lets just say, its pretty hard to get of your skin without a makeup remover. If you get a little bit on your hand, you will get it all over your face.

Covergirl Vintage Wine
Another Covergirl lipstick, but this one is in the color Vintage Wine. There's not much to say about it other than it fits the name well. A nice classic wine color that conditions your lips and lasts a lifetime! I forgot to mention that before, but yes. You would be surprised to know these lipsticks can surely last me 4+ hours without a touch up. Even after drinking coffee. 

Maybelline Color Whisper in Berry Ready
Next from Maybelline is this Color Whisper in the color Berry Ready. The formula is very soft and super creamy. It practically rolls onto your lips. Leaving a sleek shine and comfort to your lips. I love the Color Whisper, I just need more colors!

Urban Decay Revolutionary in Venom
Here's a lipstick from Urban Decay from their revolutionary line in the color Venom. This color is lovely on its on. I do have the liner too, but honestly you don't even need that. It glides on perfectly and gives you an awesome deep color. 

Urban Decay 24/7 glide on in Venom
Here's the lip liner to go with the previous lipstick in Venom. The color alone gives you a matte finish, but it's not a liner I would leave on by itself. It doesn't feel so smooth where you can put it on by itself and just lay a gloss on top or something. It dries my lips out a bit, but if I apply a lipstick on top its perfect. 

Again sorry for the quality of the pictures, but these are my favorite lipsticks for fall. I love deep berry and burgundy colors. It adds that touch of flare to make you pop in the cold winter and fall. Quality and Prices vary, but I wouldn't prefer a high quality brand over a drugstore brand. They both meet my expectations and are lovely additions to my collections. What are some of your favorite colors? Leave a comment down below. From one beauty lover to another, see you soon!
