Treasures of Sea and Earth Rock Shop in Bismarck!

Treasures of Sea and Earth Bismarck 4

There are two crystal shops in Bismarck and Treasures of Sea and Earth is my favorite! (The other shop, which is also good, is Crystal Rock Healing.)

Treasures of Sea and Earth is a fun, eclectic shop filled with all sorts of rocks, crystals, seashells and beads. They also have metaphysical books and tools. I feel welcome every time I come into the shop.

Treasures of Sea and Earth Bismarck 2

My favorite part of the shop is the little rock bin counter. It’s filled with rocks $5 and less, and I always find something new when I come in. It’s a great, affordable way to build up your rock/crystal collection.

They also have beautiful displays filled with their more valuable pieces.

If you are looking to build your rock collection, or just want to visit a fun shop, I definitely recommend Treasures of Sea and Earth!

I’m in Love with…LA Colors Hot Pink Nail Polish!

LA Colors Hot Pink Nail Polish Dollar Tree

I got this little gem at Dollar Tree! It’s the LA Colors Color Craze Nail Polish in the shade 516. This hot neon pink is one of my favorite colors to paint my nails -that and the color turquoise.

This nail polish performs remarkably well for a $1 nail polish. It only takes two coats to be opaque and dries quickly. It also is easy to remove and doesn’t stain my nails.

If you are looking for a fun new nail polish, I definitely recommend this one! They have lots of other fun neon colors like green and yellow!

What I Think About… NYX That’s the Point Super Edgy Eyeliner!

NYX That's the Point Super Edgy Eyeliner 1

I decided to purchase the NYX That’s the Point Super Edgy Eyeliner. The fat marker and the sturdy tip are supposed to be great for beginners learning how to do the winged eyeliner technique.

NYX That's the Point Super Edgy Eyeliner 2

At this distance, it doesn’t look terrible. The color is a nice intense black. But if you look closer…

NYX That's the Point Super Edgy Eyeliner 3

The tip bled a lot, causing blotchiness. It also dragged across my eyelid, instead of gliding, causing an uneven line. I wasn’t too happy with the results.

This product probably works fine if you are an expert at wing eyeliner. But if you are a beginner like me, I wouldn’t recommend this product. It’s a pity, since this eyeliner is marketed as being great for beginners. I will keep you posted when I find one that I like.

This was part of my Walmart Beauty Haul.

XOXO,

Look Glamorous with… NYX Holiday Love Lust Disco Eyeshadow Palette!

NYX Love Lust Disco Let's Groove Eyeshadow Palette 1

When I spotted this little beauty at the store, I knew I had to go back and get it. And boy, I’m glad I did – it was the last one on the shelf when I came back today!

The NYX Love Lust Disco Foil Play Eyeshadow Palette in Let’s Groove is part of NYX Cosmetics’ 2019 Holiday collection. It is a palette made completely of glittery metallic shades. Perfect for the holiday season!

You can buy this eyeshadow palette at Ulta for $10. (They also have two other palettes in the collection -Get Down and Do the Hustle.)

The eyeshadow palette is part of my Drugstore Makeup Wishlist blog post.


Swatches

NYX Love Lust Disco Let's Groove Eyeshadow Palette 2

Here are the swatches. The colors are bronze, gold, blue, green, silver and black.

As you can see the blue, green and black shades are more pigmented than the bronze, gold and silver. The lighter shades would work great as toppers.

The texture is somewhere between a powder and a cream


Look #1

NYX Love Lust Disco Let's Groove Eyeshadow Palette 7

NYX Love Lust Disco Let's Groove Eyeshadow Palette 8

Here’s my first look -I used the bronze and gold eyeshadows to achieve this look. This look is right up my alley!


Look #2

NYX Love Lust Disco Let's Groove Eyeshadow Palette 5

NYX Love Lust Disco Let's Groove Eyeshadow Palette 6

The second look uses the blue and green eyeshadows. I was way out of my comfort zone with this one, but I like how it turned out! It’s very festive.


Look #3

NYX Love Lust Disco Let's Groove Eyeshadow Palette 3

NYX Love Lust Disco Let's Groove Eyeshadow Palette 4

The last look is a smoky eye with the silver and black shades. Let me tell you, the black was so pigmented it was tricky to work with! But with some concealer, I was able to clean the look up nicely.

Which look do you like the best? Comment below!

XOXO,

Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I wanted to pop in and share a few thoughts about this beautiful day and opportunity to be grateful for what we have.

(Today’s images come from Sage Goddess, a wellness and metaphysical online store.)

I love the above quote. It is so true that when we are grateful, we are present. It means that we’re no longer longing (or ashamed) of the past, and no longer coveting (or fearing) the future. We see what we have now, and we remember to enjoy it.

Also, when we give thanks, our abundance increases, just by noticing what we have. It is hard to feel rich and abundant when we focus on what we don’t have. When we focus on what we do have, our lives suddenly become more filled with joy and blessings.

I hope everyone has a wonderful, safe holiday! ❤️🦃❤️

Also, as a side note, Sage Goddess is having a Black Friday sale! Use the code EXCLUSIVE20 to get 20% off your order!

It’s Self Care Time With … Freeman Rose Gummy Bear Mask!

Freeman Melting Sugar Rose Gummy Bear Mask

I bought the Freeman Melting Sugar Rose Gummy Bear face mask, and couldn’t wait to try this one. So, I poured a nice hot bubble bath and applied my new face mask.

It didn’t have the scent I was expecting. I was hoping it would smell like candy, with a hint of rose. It didn’t smell sweet at all -it smelled like old fashioned soap.

That said, it felt good on my skin and left my skin feeling nice and soft afterwards. And for the price it wasn’t bad -three uses and only $1.32 at Walmart! I will probably buy again based on the results. 😊

This face mask was originally mentioned in my Walmart Haul blog post.

XOXO,

Dana Maye 💚
