Ruby Woo – MAC Lipstick

One thing I’ve always wanted was MAC lipstick, but if you know me, I’d rather buy 6 tubes of lipstick from Walmart before I splurge on 1 tube from MAC. A week ago, I said screw it – I’ve got a source of income, so why not treat myself, right?

I went online and researched the best selling lipsticks from MAC, and the two that came up were Ruby Woo and Russian Red. I gravitate towards darker shades of lipstick because of my skin tone, so I was going to buy Russian Red which looks like a deeper red but isn’t as matte as Ruby Woo. But there was something to the matte-ness of Ruby Woo. It kind of looked like velvet, and that was the winning factor for me.

Version 2

Ruby Woo came in the mail a few days ago, and I haven’t stopped wearing it since. It stays on all day, but the only thing about it is that it will dry up after a while and may flake off if you rub your lips together a lot. Besides that, I definitely give it a thumbs up (haha).

New Year – New Agenda

And by year, I mean academic year. Now that we have wrapped up the 2014-2015 academic year, I need to start planning for 2015-2016 (which I am planning to make the best year ever)!

Being the Type A person that I am, I had to start looking for a new agenda pronto. I usually just get the 8×5 Blue Sky Planners from Target for $7.99, but this year, I wanted to treat myself to something a little fancier. I looked into Kate Spade agendas and Lilly Pulitzer agendas, but I wasn’t in love with any of them.

Then I stumbled upon Ban.do,  a cute company based in Los Angeles, and I fell in love with their fun and spunky energy. They have three really cute designs, but this is the one I couldn’t stop thinking about. I went ahead and placed my order today, so I hope it ships soon. I don’t know if I can wait too long for it!
