Product I Love: Calgon Femme Inferno Body Spray & A Quick Update!

Boo ya!

Lol. Feeling a bit random today!

Hello to all! I wanted to make a post today because I was pretty excited to tell you all about a product I truly fell in love with. Also just wanted to do a quick update to let u all know how I have been and whats been going on as far as my channel and video's coming back.

So firstly, I was shopping for some groceries a few days back at Walmart. I know I am always in Walmart right? Lol. So I was kinda wandering after a while and I happened to land in the body spray and spa products section. I was just kinda sniffin around at some of the different products and body sprays. I happened upon this one. The Calgon Femme Inferno Body Mist.


I have used other Calgon products before and though I do like them I have always found the scents to not last long enough for me. It seemed like after a few hours the scent was gone and I was sad. :(

I sprayed a little bit of this spray on my arm and I instantly loved the smell. According to Calgon the fragrance consists of a sultry blend of pink pepper, vivid bergamot, and lily of the valley. The scent was just like something I would wear. It was a bit musky and mysterious and I went ahead and picked it up. It was about $7. So not too pricey.

So the test was how long did the smell stay for. Well I smelled my arm the next morning before work and sure enough the scent was still there. It was a bit more faint but it was still there. And it smelled a little better after it dried out as well. So I was definitely hooked on this fragrance. I recommend it you like sultry smells like this one you try it out. And at $7 it's quite a steal. Can be found in most drugstores and grocery stores. Anywhere they sell Calgon products. Or also on their website. Good job on this one Calgon.

So as for my channel. I have been trying to update on there as well. I should be getting my Macbook within a week or two and my channel will be back up. I am very close!

In the meantime I have been job hunting, and also enjoying the warm weather we have been having. My tattoo has healed up quite nicely. Also my fiance and I went shopping a few days ago and he went with me to Sephora. He's the bestest! :) He bought me the Urban Decay Naked Palette which I have been wanting for quite some time. I love it! So I am excited to do some videos on looks made with the palette! Better late then never right! So yea, about to make some lunch I will catch you guys later! Thanks for reading!

Tag: 13 Personal Questions



Hi all! I wanted to do kinda a quick entry today. There was a tag on Youtube I wanted to do, however I will have to post it on here since I don't have my computer just yet. Lol. I will probably re-do this on my channel once I do.

So lets get started with this tag. I tag everyone so feel free to do this tag!

13 Questions:
1. What do you order at Starbucks?
I like to order a caramel frappucino or a hazelnut creme when it's cold out.

2. What's one thing in your closet that you cannot live without?
I would have to say tank tops. My closet is full of tank tops. I like them in all colors and patterns. You can dress them up or dress them down. They are multifunctional.

3. What's one thing that most people probably wouldn't know about you?
I am all about routines. I try to do a schedule everyday. I like to do this at a certain time, do this at another time. I like to plan out my entire day and keep busy.

4. Name one thing that you want to do before you die?
I would like to open my own business. It's a dream of mine. I would love to own some sort of store. A fashion store or a grocery store or a cafe.

5. What's one food that you cannot live without?
Doughnuts. I am a sucker for doughnuts. I should eat them as much as I do but I can't help myself.

6. What quote/phrase do you live your life by?
“Never allow anyone to rain on your parade and thus cast a pall of gloom and defeat on the entire day. Remember that no talent, no self-denial, no brains, no character, are required to set up in the fault-finding business. Nothing external can have any power over you unless you permit it. Your time is too precious to be sacrificed in wasted days combating the menial forces of hate, jealously, and envy. Guard your fragile life carefully. Only God can shape a flower, but any foolish child can pull it to pieces.”

7. What do you like and dislike about the YT community?
I like that I can do what I love and help others. I love watching videos. I dislike the haters, and the people who put people down. And that most people don't watch people who are less well known. Most people just watch people who are famous and sponsored. It's hard to make a name for yourself.

8. What's your number one most listened to song on iTunes?
I don't use iTunes but I would say my fave song right now is Fashion of His Love by Lady Gaga.

9. What kind of style would you define yourself as having?
I guess a "bright edgy look". I love edgy styles and I love bright neon colors.

10. Favorite number
2
11. Two hobbies
Video games and blogging of course!

12. Two pet peeves
People who are very picky. Who feel like they need to pick through things before making a decision. Also probably laziness. I can't stand people who just stand around and can't work.

13. Guilty Pleasure
Speeding. Lol. I try so hard not to but I can't help it sometimes. And I enjoy it. Lol. I shouldn't I know but I like going fast.

Do It Yourself: Clarifying Green Tea Scrub & Yard Sale Update!!!

Hello to everyone! Thanks for reading!
So my last Do It Yourself post was quite a hit. I had many people comment on it here as well as on my Facebook. So I wanted to share another one of my favorite DIY tips. I am a big DIY girl if you can't already tell! Most importantly many natural foods and such are much better for using on your skin then products in the store! They have no harsh chemicals, no artificial ingredients, and you can make them in bulk and it's so much cheaper!

So as some of you may know from watching my channel I have very sensitive and acne prone skin. It's also quite dry in certain areas and also oily in others. I have to use acne cleansing products for the most part but I do have several recipes I also use for taking care of my skin. Especially when it comes to exfoliating.

So lets get started and I will show you all one of my favorite scrubs! You can use this on any skin type but it is especially helpful with sensitive or acne prone skin.

To start off you will need to get a small bowl to mix items in, as well as a small container to store any left over product for future use. You will also need a tea kettle, green tea either loose or bagged, and a small amount of honey. As well as a small amount of plain white sugar.

Start by brewing a cup of green tea. Make sure to let the tea cool down fully before using and mixing in the bowl. You can store it in the fridge for an hour or so and it should cool down nicely.


Once your tea is cool you can strain it if you had loose green tea or you can simply leave the tea bits in the scrub. It doesn't make a difference either way!

Next pour your green tea into a small mixing bowl. Take your honey and pour about a tablespoon of honey into the tea.Any kind of honey will do.


Now take your plain white sugar and pour about a cup into the green tea. Mix. The tea and sugar should thicken up. However if it is still runny pour more sugar in until the tea becomes thick, like a scrub or mask. It should not be very drippy.


After mixing I like to let the mixture sit in the fridge for about 30 mins to cool. The scrub feels great after a hot day outside when it's nice and cool from being in the fridge.

You can use this scrub once or twice a week. The green tea is full of antioxidants. It helps clarify skin and treats redness and swelling. It helps with creating a more glowy skin color as well. The honey in the scrub is excellent for acne. It not only is a natural antiseptic that kills bacteria but also rejuvenates skin and can take the redness from acne and tone it down. Lastly the sugar serves as a natural scrubbing bead to exfoliate dead skin cells and make skin soft and clean!

This is one of my all time favorite face scrubs to use. It's natural, never makes me breakout, and it's easy to store. Simply put the rest of the product in an airtight container and store in the fridge for further use. The mixture should last about 2 weeks in the fridge.

Now....as for our yard sale day today. It started out being a rough morning. As soon as I woke up it was thundering and then raining something awful. It was a pretty bad storm. However it did clear up and I ended up having my sale in the garage. Profits were small but decent. I sold many things I didn't need and I got a little extra money in my pocket. So all was well!

If you have any DIY ideas you would like to request please email me at lilmssusieq02@yahoo.com! Or message me on my blog!

Product I Love: Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night Mascara & The Yard Sale of Yard Sales

Hello to all my lovelies! Thanks so much for reading!
Today I wanted to share with you all one of my favorite products. I got it about a month ago after needing a new mascara and wanted to try this one out. It's the Rimmel Glam'Eyes Day 2 Night Mascara.


This is actually the first Rimmel mascara I have purchased. I have long loved Rimmel products. They are always good quality and quite affordable however when it came to mascara's I never gravitated towards Rimmel. My last favorite mascara was actually by Maybelline. The Lash Stiletto Mascara was my long stand by mascara. It was waterproof, humidity proof, and not clumpy. Once it ran out I was ready to try something new and I wasn't about to spend a ton of money on it. I was eager to try out another drugstore brand mascara.

So I purchased this Rimmel mascara. I like to use the Extreme Black color however there are other color options available. I was intrigued with the two brush mascara system. This product features one brush for a daytime look that has length and defined lashes. As well as a volume brush for a more sultry, thickened, nighttime look.

The length side of this mascara unscrews from the very top. It has a quite long brush which is a good thing for the most part. The brush is thin and picks up a small amount of product. Perfect for just a small application before heading out to work or a lunch outing. When applied it does create a more lengthy look. Does not come on thick at all. I think it could actually apply a little more for my taste so I find myself having to apply more the one coat. I like the length of the brush handle as well but at times it can get a little annoying trying to position it correctly when using on my lashes because it's a little hard to manouver.

The volume side is quite shorter and unscrews under the length brush. It's not much bigger in size then the length brush but picks up quite a lot more product. I prefer using this side much more then the length side in most occasions because I like that thicker eyelash look. It applies a lot more product and often times one coat is enough for me.

The mascara itself is a nice black color. It's thick but it does not weigh my lashes down by any means. I find that it lasts quite well through the day without needing to be reapplied. There isn't any fallout from the product nor is there any running of the mascara on a humid day or night. Though this mascara is not waterproof it does hold up quite well under situations where it might rain or what not.

I believe the price is about $6.00 and is available at most all drugstores. The reason this has become one of my favorite products is because it's an all in one. You can create two different looks and go from work to night out in no time. It's afforable and personally I like the design of it. I like being able to tinker with the brushes and I like the bright pink and black colors. : )

So if you're in the market for a new mascara you need to try this out!

As for the Yard Sale of Yard Sales, this weekend is Yard Sale Day in my neighborhood. We have one once a year and it's quite busy. This year all the surrounding neighborhoods are having their yard sale day the same day so it's going to be like a yard sale bonanza around here! Lol. And as I have for the past 3 years I will be having my yard sale. Last year I made about $200 in sales and I am hoping to make the same or more this year. I am nearly at my goal for my Macbook and with the money I make from my yard sale this will be going towards that. So I am excited to have my channel back up and running soon and make new video's! I am going to take some pictures and let you guys in on a little backstage pass that day and blog about it. It's going to be fun and thrilling!

If you have any requests for tutorials, questions, anything please ask! I will include my contact details below. And please subscribe to my channel and blog because I will be doing a giveaway as one of my new video's and in order to be a part of it you will need to be a subscriber to my blog as well as my channel!

OOTD: Camo Style

Thought I would pop in to do a quick outfit of the day post. It's scorching outside today, about 93 again and I am burning up! LOL. So therefore, the short shorts are coming out. Get over it. :)







My top is from the Miley Cyrus/Max Azria Line for Walmart $7. The shorts are the same brand $12. The shoes are quite old, not quite sure of the brand.
And my makeup is a camo inspired look with greens, tan, and browns. I will do a tutorial on the look once I get my Mac.

Hope you all enjoyed and please feel free to leave any requests you might have for me!

Update! & DIY: How to Make Your Own Eyeshadow Primer

Hello my lovelies! I hope you all have been doing well and staying cool with all this hot weather we have been having.

So I've been mainly trying to stay cool, riding with my fiance and friends on the Ninja, and also just working. I've been working as much as I can to save up for my new Macbook Pro. I am actually not too far from getting it now. I literally need only about $400 more to go. I can't wait to get back to making videos and my subscribers. I love my subbies! It's tough to watch my youtube friends making videos and I must sit by and watch. So I am ready to get back to making videos!

So todays post is going to be a DIY project for you all!

Eyeshadow primer is a must have for makeup application. It creates a base to work with and brightens the colors and allows for smoother application of eye makeup. As well as making your eye makeup last longer! And in these hot summer months that's important!

I have bought many primers in the past. Though they worked great they were usually pricey and I had to buy them often. So I decided to start making my own. Not only did it work just as good as the one's I used to buy but I could make more anytime I needed! So I want to share the recipe with you all!

First off here is the products you will need!

You will need a small container or tub to put and mix your primer in.


Also you will need a good body butter. If you are sensitive to fragrances I would recommend a unscented one.


And lastly you will need foundation makeup. You can use the one you usually use on your face for this.


Firstly clean out your tub. Make sure it is clean and dry.

Next fill about half of the tub with some body butter.

Using the foundation pour in a few good size drops.

Using a toothpick or small mixing tool mix the foundation and body butter. When you are finished mixing it should look like concealer you would use on your face but a little thicker. It should be thick and spreadable and not runny.

And that's it! You can try some out to make sure the color is correct on you. Simply keep the tub covered with the lid when you are not using the product and it should last a few months for you! And anytime you run out you can simply make more!

You will only need a small pea size amount on your lids before applying your eye makeup.

I hope this is helpful and if you have any questions please feel free to ask me!

Please subscribe to my youtube channel! You will be thrilled!
