Hello Everyone, Today I meet up with some friends. We went out to lunch and had cupcake afterwards. My friend was nice and took my picture after we ate our food. Overall I had a nice lunch with friends. I just wish this sore throat. I have coming on would go away. 

 The weather here has been something else. One day nice and you don't need a coat. Then the next and you need a coat. Today it was colder out. So I decide to wear this purplish/pinkish sweater I got at the recycling center. Since it wasn't nice to wear it by it self. I put a UA long sleeve under it. Which work out prefect. My hair a little crazy in this picture because my beret kept falling off my head. I'm think I stretch it out by putting it over my ear. This winter.

Review: Shop Hopeful Kiss

Pink Tosh Necklace From I am~19.95 Euro(27.44 Dollars)
Khaki and Pink Sequin Belt Not Sure Where it Came From
Big Buddha Amber Floral Boot~From DSW 24.47

Hello Everyone, Today I have a review for you on Shop Hopeful Kiss. One of my blogger friends Galaxia of Hopeful Kiss A Pink Lipstick Life! Just recently opened up a sample lipstick shop.  Her reason behind it was. That many time we go out and buy a 8 dollar lipstick or more. Then end up hating it. So her shop offer you the chance to try the lipstick out before you buy it.

Right now she is offering a Grand Opening Specials. Which are as followed:

*FREE full-sized lipstick by NYX Cosmetics with any $15 purchase*
 *FREE full sized lipstick by SEPHORA COLLECTION with any $30 purchase*

In her shop you can get name brand lipstick to try out. The brand she carries are YLS, Urban Decay, OCC and some drugstore name lipsticks. 
Left Side is the sample size you get. Right side is the Milani Fruit Punch.
She send you a good sample size for a great price. Also with each sample you get a lip brush to go with it. Galaxia was nice and sent me two lipstick to try out. For today review.  I'm trying out Milani Fruit Punch.You can purchase this sample from her store for $1.95.  Also with her shop she send worldwide.
The Milani Fruit punch lipstick was so easy to apply. The color looked great one me. That I have thought about buying the full size of this lipstick. Milani isn't offered in Germany. So I will have to order the full size when I run out of my sample size. 
One thing I notice with this Milani lipstick is it has a smell to it. Which the smell is almost like a candy type smell. This was my first time every using a Milani product before. Over all I'm please with there products. Also I'm in love with this lipstick. I can't wait to wear it again.
 You can read Galaxia Milani Review on the fruit punch lipstick HERE. Also she did a review on the Milani fruit punch lipgloss HERE

  Elf Cranberry From Valentines Day Swap Gift From Tiffany of Endless Bliss
  Kiss Nail Artist Flat Sticker Christmas From Scribble

Hello Everyone. It's getting close to the end of the month. So I decide it is time to do my nail recap for the month. Which this month I painted my nails 4 time. Almost all the nail polish I used this month were new. Only 3 nail polish I used this month. Have been used in the past. Which they were the O.P.I. Almost Famous, O.P.I Havana dreams and Sally girl in Vernis a Ongies. 

A couple new nail products I try this month were insta gel strips. Which they are super easy to do. They do take longer to do then regular gel nail polish. I also try out another color in the Emma-easy UV polish. Which I totally like the Emma-easy UV polish better then the Blue Sky Gel Polish. One reason I say this is. The Blue Sky polish only last a week. Which the Emma Easy UV polish it last 2 weeks. Like gel nails are supposed to last.  

I also try the Kiss Nail Artist Flat Sticker for the first time. They are super easy to use. You just let your color polish dry. Then you put the sticker on and add top coat. 

Since its starting to get warm out. You will be seeing my toenails in this recap. Which I know I didn't do a great job paint my toenail. I need more practice at it. I will get it one day.

The first time I went there was back in June of last year. Which I thought I did a post on it but I didn't. So I will do a post on it this weeks. Since I didn't get that many picture of the town today.  

The fest wasn't big at all. We only stay for two hours. Then came home. We did get a ham and cheese Crepes. I also had some Apple wine. Which out of all my friends I'm the only one that likes it. Also my hubby hate it. He said it taste like oral gel. Apple wine does have a different taste to it but I like it. Its even better when you mix it with 7 up. Also it is the cheapest wine I know you can buy over here. It is only a euro 80 for a small glass.

Closet Tour 2014

Hello Everyone. If you have been around my blog for a few years. Then you know I move around a lot due to my husband job. Which it can be nice at times and also a pain in the butt. Specially when it comes to housing my clothes.  I have been wanting to do a Germany closet tour for sometime now. So after I cleaned out my closet at the beginning of the year. I finial was able to get a picture of everything. 

Which with every move it seem my closet gets smaller and smaller. When I first start my blog I lived in Florida. Which in Florida I had a huge closet I shared with my hubby. Which we didn't even have enough clothes to fill the whole closet up. You can see the Florida closet post  here and here. After living in Florida for 3 years. We moved to Michigan. Which in Michigan the walk in closet was so small. My husband and me couldn't even share. So he took the master closet and I took the guest bedroom closet. You can see the closet and a video on the Michigan Closet here.
After living in Michigan for a year and a half. We moved back to Germany.  Which this time around we didn't get a house with closet in it.  So we had to go out and buy wardrobe closet to fix are stuff.  My husband job gave us three to use. Which wasn't enough for all are clothes and jackets. So we went out yard sale shopping and find 2 more wardrobe closet for under 30 dollars. 

That still wasn't enough room. So we had to go out and buy drawers. Believe it or not my husband has more cloths then me. He has 2 and half wardrobe closet for is clothes. Plus a full dresser with his clothes in it. So now on to what you all have been waiting for the closet tour. 

This is my wardrobe closet. We had a shoe rack we weren't using. So I put it in my closet to hold my hoodie. Which this work better and looks nicer then the shoebox I was previous using.
Also to add some more room in to my tiny wardrobe closet. I use the skirt hanger that you can hang on top of each other. Also in my closet I have a pink bow scentportable that I got from Janna Of  View From the 512 during are stocking stuffer swap. Inside of the scentportable I have a bath and bodyworks sweet pea in there. That my best friend Janet got for me for Christmas. She sent me 5 of them. So I'm stocked for sometime now. 

The only clothing items that doesn't fit in my shrunks is my dresses. Those live inside of one of my husband  shrunks. Which he doesn't mind sharing one of his shrunks with me. I know it hard to see my dresses in this shrunks but if you look closely you will spot them. 

 We are lucky to have a bed that has two drawer on each side of it. Which helps when you have a tiny place to work with. On the side I sleep are my two drawers. Which in them I have one drawer for solid shirt and tanks. The other drawer holds all my graphic tanks and tee. I have been folding my shirt like this for year. Pinterest has tons of ideas to fold shirt.
 For the longest time here in Germany I had my tights in baskets. Well it was driving me nuts. So one day I got to idea to use a desk organizer to hold my tights. Which this work perfectly. Not only are the out of basket. They also have a home to live in. I organized my tights by color. After I figured out my color layout. I rolled the tights up and put them in the desk organizer. Then I put the organize in my swimsuit/white and black cami drawer. 

I hope you all liked seeing my Germany closet tour and maybe you got some storage ideas from this post. I plan on doing an update on my Shoe collection. So be on the look out for that. For now you can look at my 2013 shoe collection. Which my shoe collection has grown from last year.

  • her blog and check out her picture of these Cheeseburger bombs. These little bugger
  • are amazing. 
I did change the recipe up some when I made these. Instead of using junior biscuits.

  • 1 can Pillsbury Biscuits (10 biscuits)
  • 5 oz cheddar cheese, chopped into 10 squares

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

 In a large pan, brown ground beef, bacon and onion until cooked. Drain any grease.
Add cream cheese, ketchup, barbecue sauce, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Stir over low heat until cream cheese is melted. Allow to cool. Once cool, stir in egg white.
Roll each biscuit out very thin. Place 2 tablespoons beef mixture on each biscuit and add 1 square of cheese. Wrap the biscuit around the beef/cheese and tightly seal the edges.
Place biscuits on a parchment lined pan s
