Wicked Wednesdays Volume 1

To me Wednesdays are the best day of the week, why you may ask? Well because its not the beginning of the week and its not the end of the weekend. Its right in the middle, I'm relieved its no longer Monday and that the week is almost over..but then not so much because I don't look forward to Sundays. I seldomly  experience what people call Sunday Fun-day.. that's my laundry day, cleaning day, shopping day..etc. So this is a going to a Wicked Wednesday kind of thing. I'll see how it goes.. If it works out. Hopefully there will be many more Volumes of Wicked Wednesday.

1. Mood: Very EXCITED..because The UPS Man is bringing me lots of goodies today :D

2. Have you already started your Christmas shopping?
 No I haven't :/ the most I have is a list with names on it. 

3. What are you more excited for, Christmas or Thanksgiving? Why?
 Well if I was going to be with my dad for Thanksgiving I would be excited because he makes the BEST food. BUT since I'm going to my dads for Christmas to see my older sister, my niece, my dad, my stepmom and bunch more..I'm more excited for Christmas!

4. Do you like that alot of malls and grocery stores are already starting to play Christmas music?
 No..not really because then when its actually December and I'll want to listen to Christmas tunes I won't because by then it will already be played out.

5. What cosmetic/beauty/skin care brand are you excited for the most with their Holiday Collections coming out?
 Well it was MAC but since I've already gotten almost everything from that collection I want.. I can't wait to buy alot of LUSH Holiday Products. :) Their so amazing!

6. Do you have any Holiday Parties planned?
 At the moment no. But I'm sure I'll be going out with my girls/guys and celebrating.

7. What are your favorite Christmas movies?
 I like the classics, the ones I'd used to watch all the time when I was little :) 
The Christmas Tree, The Christmas List, The Santa Claus, Home Alone, Charlie Brown stuff. Frosty the snowman(the animated old one), Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer (also the animated old one) I could go on.

8. What do you enjoy doing the most on those cold winter days? 
I love putting on a pair of my crazy colored big fuzzy socks, making some hot tea or hot cocoa, and curling up on my couch in front of the tv watch Christmas shows or movies :) 

9. What is your Favorite Show to watch on Wicked Wednesday?
 That would most definitely have to be Criminal Minds. I love me some Detective Morgan :) 
10. Weekly goals: Buy the last three wants from the MAC Holiday Collection. Figure out what I'm getting the important people for Christmas! Donate Kelvins old toys.
Hope you all Enjoy your week, and get some things accomplished. :)
Love & Lipstick, Alyssa

NOTD-Movember- Support Prostate Cancer

So I saw this cute little nail design through Birchbox, they posted a link to it. I love this.. it was quite hard and didn't turn out as well, but I'm still enjoying them. Cutepolish (Youtube Channel) has AMAZING nails, unfortunately I  did this at a spur of the moment and all I had to make the design was a tooth pick. If your wondering what is up with the little Western Mustaches (Oh so adorable) it's to raise awareness for Prostate Cancer for Movember, also No Shave November.  Here is a link to find out more information about Movember ----> Click me! Help raise awareness

The nail polish I used was: OPI Road House Blues (for the mustache) and for the base I used Nubar Nail Lacquer in Baby Blue

So yes I know mine aren't as perfect..they kind of look like Seagulls. HA. Oh well its still for a good cause. I suggest that if you try this or any of her other tutorials you have the right tools, so that you can get the best look possible. I've included a link to her Youtube Channel above and here is the video. Please do check her out, she is super talented and paints a killer nail ;p
