Traveling in Style - My Picks!

I am not a traveler by any means. I haven't been many places in my life, and where I have been hasn't been incredibly far from my hometown in Massachusetts.. I am going on my first "real" vacation in April and could not be more excited. I never got to go to Disney World when I was little, but my husband grew up right near it so he went all the time. We are taking our son (even though I wish he was a little older so he'd actually remember it) as well as going down there to visit my husband's family. (If you guys would like any blogs about the trip afterward, let me know! I'm sure I will have plenty of photos to share!)

You guys know how much I love Kat Von D's makeup line. I have been asked so many times over the years to do a video on all the Kat Von D products I own. My collection has grown and I kept putting it off, but I finally sat down and filmed this video! I hope you guys enjoy it - it's a long one lol!

Melt Cosmetics Love Sick Shadow Stack

My first venture into Melt Cosmetics was trying one of their eyeshadow stacks. I chose the Love Sick one because I really liked the colors. I had heard mixed reviews of their lipsticks, so I was somewhat worried about ordering this at first. At $48 it's a pretty hefty price for a shadow palette from an indie company, but if you think of it as they come out to $12 each, it's not that bad in the grand scheme of things. Also, the shadows are giant at 3.57g each, so you are getting your money's worth!

ACEVOG Haul/Review & Try-On

I was recently contacted by a clothing company called ACEVOG to review a few items from them. I recorded a haul video/try-on and wanted to share it on here as well! They sell their clothing on Amazon, and the link to their store is here. They have a ton of cute stuff, but I do recommend going up a size from what you normally wear, as they are Asian sizes and fit small.

Hope you guys enjoy the video! You can subscribe to my YouTube channel for more, or follow my blog for more reviews!

There was a lot of backlash when it was announced that Miley Cyrus was going to be the next Viva Glam person for MAC. Whether you're a fan or not (I'm pretty indifferent), you've got to admit these colors are gorgeous!

Maybelline Master Conceal is a new super pigmented high coverage concealer that rivals the popular Glamoflauge from Hard Candy and Lock-It Tattoo Concealer from Kat Von D. This stuff is awesome!

Lightscapade is a mineralize skinfinish that I have been wanting for a while, and it is a permanent color now. When I saw it was released with the Lightness of being collection with the neat quilted pattern on it, I finally gave in and bought it.

MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow in Natural Vigor - Lightness of Being Collection

The Lightness of Being Collection came out right after Christmas so I am a bit behind on posting this, but this wasn't a very anticipated collection, so most of the stuff is still available! This is one of the mineralize eyeshadows in the shade Natural Vigor, which is a metallic peachy champagne color. It is actually split into 2 shades - a shimmery one and a glittery one, but I prefer to just blend the 2 together.

New Blogger Tag! Music and Such.

Posted by Meg B Filed under: , ,

I was tagged by my friend Lucy over at Love Lulu to do this - these are fun questions so feel free to do this tag also if you would like!

1) What is your favourite song?
This is always hard because I'm such a music lover. Music has always been a huge part of my life! My Mom raised me on classics like Metallica and Guns N' Roses (those were her faves) and as I got older I of course got hooked on some of my own favorites. We went to a lot of shows together actually, and that was a huge bonding thing for us. I will go with what I usually say though, a song I can never get sick of, and that is "She" by Green Day. They are my favorite band in the entire world and have been since I was in the 5th grade and discovered their music. I'll never miss a show when they come!

2) List artists you have seen live.
I used to go to concerts CONSTANTLY. Now that I have a little guy, not so much. I used to keep track of who I saw live and how many times, but I haven't been to a show in a while! I believe the last one I went to was Green Day, actually! The bands I can remember that I have seen are:
Green Day 6 times, Blink-182 3 times, Good Charlotte 10 times New Found Glory 7 times, Social Distortion 2 times, Mest, +44, Fall Out Boy 2 times, No Doubt, Matchbook Romance 2 times, Yellowcard, Sugarcult 2 times, Bowling for Soup, The Bouncing Souls, Anti-Flag, The Living End, Something Corporate, Hot Rod Circuit, Less Than Jake, Mudvayne, The Deftones, Linkin Park 2 times, Limp Bizkit, Metallica 3 times, Godsmack 2 times, Papa Roach, Lola Ray, Sum 41, Hazen St., My Chemical Romance 2 times, Hoobastank, Velvet Revolver (Twice! I met Slash and Duff!), Simple Plan, Angels and Airwaves, Relient K, Against Me!, Jimmy Eat World, The Dead 60's, CKY, ASG, Head Automatica, Avenged Sevenfold, Coheed and Cambria, Roses are Red, Amber Pacific, Chiodos, The Early November (twice), Taking Back Sunday, The Subways, Rob Zombie, Shinedown, Young Love (twice), The Pink Spiders (twice), Blackpool Lights, Supersuckers, Hit the Lights, Cartel, Kill Hannah (twice), It Dies Today, Paul Wall, Cobra Starship, The Academy Is, Army of Freshmen, AFI, Alice in Chains, and Backstreet Boys (my first ever concert haha).

As you can see, that's pretty much all I did growing up lol! I am usually always up front at shows - have never been anywhere other than the barricade for Green Day because I just have to get as close as possible. I will be cliche here and say that their music has always been there for me and has gotten me through a lot in my life. I will forever be grateful to them for making such great music that I can listen to no matter what I'm feeling, and it will help put me in a better mood.

I also have a huge soft spot for Good Charlotte and wish they would start making music together again. They are the reason I met a lot of the friends that I still have to this day, even my best friend, because we bonded through our love for that band. That's even how I originally met Lucy, who tagged me to do this! :D Just for fun, here are a few of my favorite pics from shows.

This is Joel from Good Charlotte, my number one crush since I was like 16 hahaha
The one and only Billie Joe:
Mike Dirnt:
Billie again, from the last time I saw them:
Tre Cool gave me his drumstick:
That pretty much made my life. It was in 2010 and it was my first time seeing Green Day after my Mom passed away. I like to think she played a part in getting me that stick :)

3) Name a place you would like to visit.
I would like to visit a lot of places. I just wish it wasn't so expensive to fly! I am finally getting to go to Disney World this April though, which I am excited for! I also have always wanted to visit Brazil, but I don't know if I can handle a flight that long!

4) What is your favourite family holiday?
Honestly, we've never been on a proper one! This Disney trip will be the first!
5) Who was/is your favorite teacher?
I loved my kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Purdy. I saw her years later when I was working retail and she STILL remembered me - that was the awesome thing about her, she remembered the names and faces of all of her students.

6) List a famous person you would like to bring back to life and have a chat with.
Hmm. That's tough. You know what, I'm going to say Corey Haim, because I loved him and was really upset when he passed. 

7) List professions you would like to try.
I took a stab at tattooing and wish I had stuck with it, because that would be a really fun job!

8) What are some of your favourite games?
If we're talking video games, I'm really into The Evil Within right now. Other than that, classics like Sonic the Hedgehog and Mario never get old. For board games, there's pretty much nothing I don't like to play, except Monopoly - I hate that game and I don't know why! I actually wish more people in my family liked board games because I never get to play them enough lol

9) Name a celebrity you look up to?
Kat Von D, hands down. I don't agree with all her relationships as she has the tendency to go from one to another too quickly, but I'll stay out of the personal aspect of her life. I had the opportunity to meet her at one of her book signings and she was so sweet and down to earth. I look up to her because look at the empire she's created for herself - she's a huge name in a male-dominated industry, she has her own shop and art gallery as well as her own clothing line and HUGE makeup line. Girl is amazing!!

10) List something you would change about the world. 
I'd love to eliminate war. Just totally erase it and any thought of it. That would make everything better!

Sorry that turned into such a "my history of music love" there at the beginning, but hopefully you guys enjoyed getting to know a little bit more about me!

Kat Von D Shade + Light Face Brush

Posted by Meg B on Friday, January 16, 2015. Filed under: , , , , , , ,

The Kat Von D Shade + Light double ended brush was made to go with the Shade + Light Contour Palette. This is an angled contour brush on one end, and a pointed highlighting brush on the other. The packaging is crazy, and the brush is nice and soft. Let's get into it!
