Organizing with Glamourgirl220: Who said it has to be expensive?

     Okay, so all my friends know that I am an organizing QUEEN! I used to be really messy when I was younger, but as I have matured I have really gotten into the whole being organized thing. Of course, this isn't an easy task when you have a messy husband. I am still working on organizing all of our things together and getting rid of the clutter (and yes I have been working on it since we got married NINE months ago) but thats okay. It may just take moving into a nicer more spacious apartment to finally get that down. :) I think the problem right now is that I really am running out of areas to put things because there is NO storage space in our current apartment what-so-ever.

     So, I really only have one tip for today. That tip is that organizing does not have to be expensive!! You do NOT have to go to the Container Store, Walmart, Target, Etc and purchase materials to organize your home. It is just as easy to take containers you already have and put them to good use! These containers can range from shower caddys, mesh buckets, silverware drawer dividers, or even shoe boxes! I know that I have a few old shoeboxes floating around my house that are now the home to cards, craft supplies and many other things. I even made them pretty using scrapbook paper and paints that I already had! :) Even if you don't have an abundance of containers to use, you can still hit up the local dollar store and find containers that will work just as well as the more expensive variety for only $1 each. Like I said, organizing does not have to be expensive!

     That is all of the tips I have for today (partially because I am tired and partially because I need to get back to the homework ) :) Have a great week everyone!!

XOXO,
Glamourgirl220

I Just Found My New Favorite Nail Polish!!

     Okay guys so I have found a fabulous nail polish line that I tried out and absolutely adore!!

     It all started when my friend posted a picture on instagram of her gorgeous home manicure. She had painted her nails a really pretty coral-pink color and then a gold glitter polish on her ring finger. Needless to say they looked stunning! It was one of those girly pictures with her holding the bottle of polish. It was from a brand I had never heard of and assumed it was a higher end brand. It is called Sinful Colors. Later that day I went to Target to look around and pick up a few beauty items. I was scoping out the nail polish section when I saw a brand I had never heard of for only $1.99. I thought it looked familiar  and went to check out my friend's picture again. Low and behold it was the same brand!! I was so excited and picked out a pretty shade that I liked. They had so many colors to choose from. I only let myself get one since I have never tried this line before, but I will DEFINITELY be back for more!! You definitely can't beat the quality and for a STEAL at $1.99 it really can't be beat!

Review: Revlon Lip Butters

Okay guys, so as most of you know I have been showing and talking a lot about the revlon lip butters. Here is my official review of this product to let you know all of the details and how I feel about these lipsticks.

What is it? Revlon Lip Butters
Where can I purchase it? Walmart, Target, and most drug stores
Is there a good color selection? Yes, there are approximately 20 different colors available! There is everything from peaches to pinks to reds in this line. :)

My absolute favorite thing about these lipsticks (aside from the awesome colors) are the texture. They are creamy like a lip balm/chapstick yet are pigmented like your everyday lipstick! They keep your lips hydrated while providing beautiful, vibrant color for your lips. From my personal experience, they stay on really well too! I own 2 of these lip butters (peach parfait and strawberry shortcake). They have been my go to lipsticks this summer to keep my lips hydrated from the summer air while still giving me my colorful pout.

The colors are very true to how they look in the packaging. This means no nasty surprises of a hot pink lip when you put on your strawberry shortcake lip butter. Another bonus for these is the price. In my neck of the woods they are only $6.49. This is average for a drugstore lipstick. However, I feel like they have the quality of the higher end brands so it is definitely worth it.

If you haven't checked out Revlon Lip Butters for yourself, I strongly suggest picking one up next time you are at your favorite drug store. :) You won't be disappointed!!

Late nights with glamourgirl220

Hello hello. It is currently 3:30am here on the east coast! I can't sleep so I am gonna blog a little bit and tell you guys what's going on.

Anyway I hit 92 subscribers today which I am so excited about!! I hope to finally hit my 100 mark by the end of June 30 :) that would give me an entire month to get 100 more subscribers so we can finally begin to discuss a giveaway like I promised after 200 subscribers. :) Honestly I am so excited about doing a giveaway because I have so many ideas on what I could actually giveaway. I was thinking a naked 1 & 2 palette (yes I mean BOTH of them) but then again so many people already have one or the other or even both!! That's okay though, my next idea is doing a pretty little gift pack with eyeshadows, lipsticks, blushes, etc. It would include a few of my favorite things from each makeup category and maybe even include a fun mask or something :) I think that is the one I am leading more towards because it sounds like more fun to shop for. :P Anyway if anyone has any ideas on what you would like to win PLEASE comment on this blogpost and let me know!! I don't know what you want unless you tell me :)


XOXO,

27 million

Slavery...it's a thing of the past right? WRONG!! There are currently over 27 million slaves in the world. This is more than any other point in history. When most people think of slavery, they think of African Americans working the fields, working endless hours with no pay. The only thing they are given is a small amount of food and a tiny room to live in with their families. This is not exactly the kind of slavery I am talking about. I am talking about boys and girls of all races and walks of life being kidnapped from their families and used for forced labor in factories or for prostitution. These people are drugged and beaten and have nothing left but a sense of hopelessness. They are sure that they will never be free again, they will never see their families again and they will die in this abyss of hell. Well I've got news for you, it's 2012 and it is time for some serious change! No more turning a blind eye. No more letting those people be ignored. It's time to bring these people to the light and set them free. It's time to put an END to slavery...for good.

"We've got to rise up, open our eyes up, be their voice, be their freedom, come on stand up!!"

Busy Day...

Hey guys! It has been a super busy day! I have been cleaning, taking care of my adorable new little kitten and filming. I have been working on filming a tag video and if I have time, I would like to go ahead and film my What's in my purse video as well. If I don't get around to that, I will probably just wait until tomorrow to do that! I still need more ideas for videos. I am thinking and kinda playing around with a makeup tutorial video. I am thinking just a natural look using the ELF butternut eyeshadow quad I featured in my What's in my makeup bag video. If anyone has any ideas, please feel free to leave in the comments! Thanks guys. Have a good day! :)

To do for Saturday February 18, 2012

So I have neglected to do a lot of things these past few weeks. I have been so busy with school that my youtube channel and other projects have kinda been pushed to the back burner. However, I am going to change that this weekend! I am posting my to do list for Saturday and hopefully I will be able to get everything checked off okay!

  • Clean out my desk
  • clean my bedroom
  • organize my makeup drawers
  • update my makeup wish list
  • Update my dvd list
  • plan for my ulta haul video when my things arrive
  • email companies for coupons (check out the list on TCW from Elaine's Challenge)
  • Organize my coupon box/clip sort NB
  • Organize future stockpile space
  • plan list of next possible videos
  • film another video?
As you can tell there is a lot to do, however most of the items on my list are smaller tasks that just need to finally get done. Keep an eye out for my newest videos and blog posts. Thanks!

I hate VSU

I am beyond frustrated with Valdosta state! Direct deposits for excess checks were suppose to go out today. Of course I didn't get mine. Go figure!! I hate vsu so much! They can never do anything right.
