Happy Monday! <3
Hope you had a fabulous weekend. I had a very busy one and I will explain more below! Other than that, even though it’s only a few weeks into January, I am already experiencing Spring fever as you will see by this fabulous new lipstick I bought.
Over the weekend I picked up a few of the Apacalips from Rimmel and let me tell you–I am impressed! They are a cross between a lipstick and lipgloss–a liquid lipstick. These are going to be perfect for Spring/ Summer.

Rimmel Apacalips in Apacoliptic
This was my first ever Rimmel purchase and I can’t wait to try more products from them. These fab lip products are so pigmented and bright. Not something you’d expect from the drugstore. Love, love, love them! Can’t wait to get more!
In other news…
1. When I first moved into my home, I had plans to turn the spare room into a “Youtube filming room”–which looking back on that–thank goodness I didn’t! It seems so lame devoting a room to Youtube, IMO so we wound up turning the space into a play room for my daughter (a playroom she never played it! *lol* ). After months of the room sitting there empty, I decided to turn it into a dressing room/ makeup room. Some may say that’s as lame as a youtube filming room but I decided on the dressing because the airduct for the heat is on the floor–right in front of my vanity. It got SO warm that my mascaras and concealers spoiled. When I realized that the heat was ruining my makeup, I decided to use the spare room.I have more room to space out my makeup, I have more space for all my makeup, clothes, hair products and beauty products in general!! The playroom got moved to the family room which is well used and this new room has been a dream! It’s still in the process of getting glammed up but I will be sure to share pics soon!
2. I’m in the process of growing out my eye brows!! I had a consultation with a esthetician and now I’m playing the waiting game! I will still continue to blog my outfits and FOTD posts–despite some crazy wolf-like brows. I’m so excited to start getting them waxed (when they’ve grown it)–from here on out.
3. New beauty videos to come on my beauty channel in 2014!! I can’t believe how much I’ve missed doing beauty videos! Can’t say when I’ll be returning yet but be sure you’re subscribed to my Youtube channel: www.youtube.com/stylishlysurreal and of course, be sure to check out NancyValentino.com for updates!
Have a lovely week! x
