I recently found a way to make your boobs look 100x better ... I know this post is kind of strange ha ha but just go with it :)
I went to Victoria's Secret and I looked for an amazing bra that would lift and make my .. breasts .. look bigger (lol awkward)
I didn't find my magical bra :(
But after that I went to Macy's and found this, Strap Solutions :)
It gathers your bra straps in the back and at the same time lifts and tightens your bra :)
There is a whole line of products dedicated to fixing your bra problems, and I am excited to try all of them (or most at least)
And get this, it was only 8.00 !!!!!! :) That's nothing compared to what I would have spent on a Victoria's Secret Bra ! :)
So just wanting to share that with you girls :)
Hope it wasn't too weird lol
Bras & Kisses,

So I recently came across something really disturbing....
A blog which I had been following has been using/copying posts from the MakeupGeek site and posting them as her own....
As a devoted blogger and reader I found this to be shady and not at all ethical or professional...
I know its "just a blog" but at least have the nerve to link back to the original place you received information from...
I'm not writing this post to bash on that blogger therefore I will not post her name...
If you are really interested in knowing you can email me personally ...
Please excuse this little rant, but I am appalled ..
I wanted to share my top products for the month of July, I know the month isn't over yet but I couldn't wait to do my first favorites of the month :)
I'm breaking it up in two parts body and skincare, and makeup and hair care :)
Victorias Secret Body Lotion in Love Spell,
this lotion smells so delicious and has become my favorite.. can you believe I would almost never put lotion on? I just don't like the sticky feeling, but this product absorbs into my body super fast !
Victorias Secret Body Spray in Love Spell,
I spray this all over my body after I apply lotion to freshen up and make the smell last longer :)
I have also been using the foot care products from AVON, my feet are so much softer and nicer and they aren't dry anymore :)
you can read more about my spa day using those products here
My perfume of choice for the past 3 months now has been Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture :)
it smells A M A Z I N G !
I received two samples from Estee Lauder, the Idealist Even Skin Tone Illuminator and the Day Wear Sheer Tint Release Advanced Multi Protection Anti Oxidant Moisturizer and I loved them both. I think I will purchase them soon. The moisturizer is amazing it is gray when you first look at it and as you apply it the color adapts to your skin I really recommend it :)
I have also been using the Origins No Puffery eye cream, its amazing ! :D
Not Your Ordinary Beauty Queen is hosting a not so ordinary giveaway !
She is giving away a beautiful necklace from the House of Harlow 1960...
You can read more about it by clicking the picture below :)
I know I have been neglecting to do my monthly bird inspired tutorials, I'm sorry...
If you didn't know about these let me explain:
I wanted to do a look inspired by nature and instead of picking flowers which is what people usually do I decided to pick Birds:)
This month the inspiration was the Ruby Throated Hummingbird :)
Hummingbirds are gorgeous and full of color ! The picture I got inspiration from had a hummingbird with obviously a ruby color on it's chest, black on its head, and blue, green, and purple tones in different parts of it's tiny body :)
I hope you guys like what I've came up with, and maybe you can recreate a look using the picture as inspiration and email it to me :)
MARLAANDMAKEUP@GMAIL.COM (in case your wondering)
I didn't use the ruby color in my eyes instead I used it on my lips, just a little twist I added to this monthly look :)
Do you guys enjoy these bird inspiration looks?
Let me know your thoughts:)
I recently read an article on beautylish about the new MAC Me Over collection that comes out this fall (August 25 - September 2011 ) and I haven't been this excited for a collection in a long time !
This collection is special because they used R E A L people for the campaign, real people like you and me.
Not gorgeous models, actresses, or singers... but actual people.
To pick them MAC held a contest, 6 lucky people were chosen :)
MAC Me Over's Motto is - Style, Heart, and Soul -
This should not only be MAC'S motto but everyones motto...
STYLE; as a beauty blogger I understand how important style is to one's life, express yourself and be yourself those are the 2 key parts.... I don't worry about what people will think about my Neon lipstick, I don't care if people think that my blue eyeshadow should have stayed back in the 70's ... Be who y o u want to be and don't give a **** what people think :)
HEART; put your all into anything you do... without heart nothing will achieve it's ultimate greatness...
SOUL; passion, love, and determination.... I feel that my passion for makeup drives my heart and soul and helps me be a better person everyday.... Never give up if you feel your heart is in the right place.
Whatever feels good in your heart and gut is what you should do....
Never let anyone bring you down babes ! :)
I wanted to use this opportunity to not only talk about the MAC collection but also motivate and inspire you...
Everyday some people are only looking to do harm... but just let it slide right off you and keep doing your thing...
Do you suffer from oily skin?
Does your makeup look bad after only an hour?
Are your pores big?
Have you answered yes to any of these questions ?
THEN YOU NEED TO TRY... lol jk :)
i'm just being silly... but really ...
I HAVE YOUR SOLUTION !
my remedy is:
MILK OF MAGNESIA !
This is originally meant as an antacid or laxative, you can purchase it at your local pharmacy.. and it doesn't have to be this brand (although I do recommend Phillips)
All you have to do is apply it as a face mask nightly, let it sit for 10 minutes and then wash it off...
YOU WILL NOTICE A DIFFERENCE VERY SOON !
you can also apply this as a primer, just make sure you blend it well and apply a very thin layer because it can show a white cast on the face...
I have also read that you can apply it onto your scalp to reduce or get rid of dandruff, although I haven't done it on myself...
To get a temporary "face lift" and reduce the look of pores you can rub ice on your face for 5-10 minutes, this will cause the pore to shrink and appear smaller...Tyra Banks shared this tip on her show :P
I recently showed you the pink glitter I bought from NYX cosmetics, and I already used it for a look :)
I love how fine it is :)
It is much better quality than the Sally Beauty Supply Glitter I've used :)
I also did thick liner and a frosty pink shadow :)
I love how this look came out !
OH LA LA Nail Polish: a beautiful coral color, perfect for summer.
Cream Pink Nail Polish: A neon pink color, also perfect for summer or when you want something bright.
You can purchase these at Rite Aid, Walgreens, Amazon, or Ebay :)
I purchased it for 1.99 but keep in mind that the prices can vary...
I think that this is an exceptionally good product, I'm not so much of a nail polish fiend as I am a makeup one so I don't invest in high end brands and I think that these are perfect for people that want a vast variety of colors yet don't want to spend too much.
The pigmentation is great, I only used two coats of nail polish and one coat of top coat.
They also dry incredibly fast, I noticed that they have a kinda funky smell and are not shiny on their own. But that is the only con I found :)
I want to start doing more tutorials and videos but I wanted to get some advice on which camera I should get, the one I currently use is not even worth mentioning ha ha...
So which camera do you recommend ?
Something I can film and take pictures with would be awesome :)
And here are some inspiration pictures just to make this post a bit more interesting ha ha :)
If you recreate any of these looks post them up :)
btw these are pictures i found looking through the internet, i don't own any rights over them :)
