A Quick FOTD and a Gorgeous HQCD Necklace!

Hey everyone! Life is still super crazy busy and I'm going to have to apologize for not being as regular with the updates as I usually do. Rest assured, I am still checking up on comments and I've been trying to catch up on e-mails so if I haven't gotten back to you please be patient and I will respond as soon as I can!

I was going to upload a video tonight but after two failed attempts and waiting a total of about 2 hours before they errored out, I've decided to just post a quick FOTD and jewelry review instead.


Here I am wearing Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream, Mac Blot Powder, Shu Uemura Rouge Ultimate lipstick in Jupiter Brown, Rock & Republic blush in Bedroom, Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Ransom, and one of my fav NYX eyeshadows, Morocco.

This necklace is something that was NOT sponsored or gifted, but one that I saw Lisa put up in her shop and I freaaaaaaked out about and quickly bought. It's the HQCD Signature Super Nova necklace in Heliotrope and it is drop-dead-frickin-gorgeous! I've never seen anything like it. She literally made the setting using beads since the crystal is a round rivoli stone with no holes in it. (EDIT: Sorry guys, I just saw Lisa's comment about Swarovski discontinuing this particular crystal so she had to pull the listing. :( Hopefully she can make others similarly just as beautiful too!)


Did I mention that Heliotrope Swarovski crystals change colors? In some angles it's a deep purple and in other lights it has flashes of teal blue.


Even the back has a really amazing pattern of beads which keep the crystal solidly in place.


So amazing homg! I've been wearing it really often since I bought it because I wear a lot of purple and navy blue. ^.^


Also wanted to mention that the nailpolish I'm wearing here is one of my favorites, Revlon Peach Petal. It's the perfect pale pinky-peach on my skin and I wore it for 2 weeks! I even wore it twice within two months. That's pretty much a record for me considering the perverted amount of nail polish I own. Here's a better shot of the polish:


I've definitely been digging the orangey colors this summer with Revlon Peach Petal, Mac Seasonal Peach, Eyeko Coral, and a random Maybelline Coral polish I picked up from the dollar tree. Don't worry, I've still been taking pics so a nail post will come soon. ^.~

Alright, going to go play on my new Macbook Pro and see if I can get used to the new video editing program and try to forget about the crazy thunderstorm going on outside. *BOOM, BOOM*

  5. I'm glad you posted the polish b/c I was just about to ask. It looks so creamy and delicate! Maybe I'll buy it and take it to the salon...I can't do my own nails to save my life despite many, many attempts. And isn't it hot where you live? I'm surprised to see a scarf here!

    Good luck video editing! Not sure why but imovie is really hard for me to learn. I fared so much better with windows movie editor : P

  18. Love the necklace, my eyes popped when i saw how pretty the blue is, considering that i'm more of a green girl :) and i must agree that the handicraft is very delicate. Must have cost a lot?

    Love the Skin79 Hot Pink BB cream on you, how is your skin taking it so far,will you be doing a tutorial on it? I'm currently using the Gold BB cream, it is a bit dry on me so i had to hydrate myself properly before application.

    As for the nail, yes, like what PAG said, thank goodness you posted about it cuz we're about to ask. It has a very nice shade. Will lookout for it in my nearby counters.

    Have a nice week, Jen & to all readers :)

  23. I too love that nail polish, but I find the application to be a very messy one :(

    How did you get yours so perfect? And how many layers did you use?

    ReplyDelete
  24. OMG can you say gorgeous? Truly unique jewelry - I love how it sparkles.

    I was debating getting the polish you are wearing now - all the Revlon polishes I own have not applied the way I wanted them too...I don't know how you got the polish to look so well...perfect.

    I LOL everytime I read your posts - "perverted" amount of polish? :D You have a way with words, my dear.

  32. Unfortunately, I'm discontinuing the helio crystal because this particular size is super hard to get a hold of. SWAROVSKI also discontinued production on this particular type :(

    There's still the amethyst and sapphire, both beautiful!
