Winter Favs: Colourpop Liquid Lipsticks

IMG_8553







I LOVE Colourpop Liquid Lipsticks!


They're one of the first liquid lipsticks brands I've tried. They can be a bit drying, but I think all liquid lip can be to some sort of drying. I always put on lip balm then do my normal makeup routine THEN put on the liquid lippie last so it gives the balm time to sink into my lips. Especially since I struggle with dry lips, all year round.

These are a few of my fav reds that I like using during the holiday season — though some of these I also like to grab year round.

New adventures & hand hugs

When I first brought up coming to see Bubba when we met two years ago he told me to wait it out a year... after I graduated college. But me being the impatient me I am, I didn't like his answer. I decided to plan a trip to Dallas, TX by myself and if he came to hang out with me he did. If he didn't then he just didn't. That choice was up to him.

Our beginning as Hazel & Bubba wasn't as smooth as it was for Penny & Axelyn if that makes any sense.

I always felt like he cared about me at arms length. Like there was something just holding him back and it confused me and made me a bit annoyed for months.

I ended up booking my flight and a hotel in Texas and told him about it. He had agreed to pick me up but if he had changed his mind I wouldn't had been mad at him if he did.

My Christmas Wish List

I wish I knew how to do those cool all in one images for stuff like this, I feel like the format I use is sort of sloppy.

Whomp!

This is the Christmas list I sent my fiance; I didn't include the stuff off my list he already got me.
I just realized though — most of the things on my wish list is makeup... and food. I wanted to incorp more skincare items since I acquired a mysterious scar on my forehead that makes it look like someone tried to bite into it. I also wanted to incorp more house things.

I need to revamp my apartment and my life, basically.

Blogmas 2018~


Okay, I kiiiiiiiiiiiinda might had forgot it's blogmas/vlogmas... sooo we're just gonna wing this.

Whoops.

I really had no idea or any set plans on WHAT to do or feature for blogmas; we had an upcoming trip but we cancelled it recently which sucks but life happens and sometimes there's no way around that. The most you can do is plan better next time and clear your calendar for those plans.

December is always such a struggle month between various bills, renewals, holidays, freakin Christmas. It was easy when I spent the holidays alone and always planned to work on that day anyway... family holidays have always been a bit of a struggle for me.

Christmas has never really been a big holiday growing up; my mom had set traditions that she made sure we knew how important they were but majority of the time she spent Christmas Eve/Day working. So the "celebration" part and the "family" part had never really resonated with me.

Now that I'm building my own family and the fact that Bubba has such a huge close family is a bit overwhelming to me. It's not that bad but sometimes it still makes me a little uncomfortable, at least the thought does but once I get there they make feel comfortable enough to forget that part. For that, I'll always be thankful.

We have a few Christmas themed stuff we want to do around the Dallas/Fort Worth area this month; I'm hoping to get a few different type of photos for my blogs. But I'm so awkward in front of the camera sometimes.

We also have some wedding and Baby Lo prepping to get done... actually a lot of planning and prepping is in our very close future lol.

Here's to December: The things I'll discover, learn, experience and hopefully find a few new favorite things!

Review | LUSH; Bewitched Bubble Bar





I love LUSH seasonal products!

Halloween and Fall is one of my favorite times of the year so of course I was psyched to pick up some of the Halloween LUSH products!

I was really excited about Bewitched because of the scent notes and LOOK. HOW. CUTE!

I said yes 💍


I said yes 💍

Left ↠ Penny proposing to Axelyn in July 2016

Right ↠ Bubba’s real life engagement ring in October 2018

If you told me 2 years ago that this boy would be everything I had ever dreamed of and more. That he’d drop to one knee in real life some day and ask me to marry him, I probablyyyy wouldn’t believe you. But since our FFXIV wedding in 2016 he’s never treated me as anything less than a wife.

He is the most compassionate, patient and selfless man I’ve ever met and I am beyond excited to be spending the rest of my life with him.

Life | Texas State Fair 2018



The Texas State Fair has always been on my bucket list when I lived in Cali but being stuck in a small town with dreams of traveling I never thought I'd be able to make it to one; and I totally never ever thought I'd ever move to Texas!


This year we went to our SECOND Texas State Fair together!

This year I wanted us to get a picture together and someone was kind enough to snap this photo for us! You can barely tell I'm pregnant though lol and being pregnant I thought I'd have a little more eating room... but nahhh, I didn't lol!

We had a vague list of things we wanted to try and we went with doing savory before sweet unlike the year before and I think it worked out a lotttt better that way. We got to try some really good things! Here's a few of our favs;




Deep Fried Shepard's Pie;

This is one we stumbled on when we first walked in. We didn't exactly know what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised to see it came with Gravy and Deep Fried Green Beans.

The Deep Fried Green Beans were SO GOOD. Dipped in that Gravy? OH SO YUMMM!!

The Deep Fried Shepard's Pie was also really good ─ I loved how it was filling stuffed into a ball of Mashed Potatoes. Dipped in the Gravy it was so good and savory!


Cotton Candy Taco;

THIS WAS OUR FAV.  And it was one of the biggest things on my list that I had seen before on Instagram.

We found our way to the one inside the car model room where they had the S'mores Cotton Candy Taco. There was a stand outside we found later that had a Strawberry Shortcake and a Chocolate Covered Cherry one as well as the S'mores.

So this was pretty much a Waffle Cone shaped like a Taco Shell; inside was Marshmallow sauce then they put on to some kind of delicious Cotton Candy. Sprinkled with Oreo crumbs and more Marshmallow sauce and 2 delicious Pocky sticks. I don't know WHAT KIND of Pocky these were but the Chocolate on them were so good. I just wanted a box of those on their own.

Oh I hope this is there next year as well! I'll be getting TWO.


We went by the rides/games section and Bubba wanted to win me something, he nailed this one on the first try! He was a pain to walk through the Fair with because he's so awkwardly shaped but how sweet of him!


Here's my outfit and makeup look for the Fair;

Eyes; HUDA Gemstone Obsessions in Ruby
Face; Julep Perk It Under Eye Treatment Brightener + ELF Tone Correcting Powder
Lips; Colourpop Disney Designer Lip Stick in Tiana

Sadly I lost that beanie! And I've had it for years! I have no idea where it went off to and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't sad about it... whomp. Hopefully it's just hanging around the apartment or in Bubba's car somewhere.
