Christmas Gifts!

Oh how I love Christmas, but the days leading up to Christmas are terrible. The reason why I say this awful thing is because you have to pick out everyone's gifts. Some are easy, like for example: That wonderful co-worker you have that wears that same pin on her shirt EVERYDAY, she obviously needs a new one. Although there are also some people that just confuse you on what to get them. For example: That daughter of yours that stopped telling you everything and what she likes because, well, you know your just not a "cool mom" like everyone else's, and you just wouldn't understand. Well I can help you. I am going to blog atleast once a week to show whats "in", so you want have a problem with picking out a present for: your grandmother, daughter, mother, even that cousin that was twice removed.

Lame Excuses on why I haven't blogged in a while:

1. I went rock crawling in Uwharrie National Forest all last weekend.
2. I just finished volleyball season and now I'm starting cheerleading next week.
3. I'm a teenager and I have friends, school, and a license.
4. I'm not getting much feedback on what topics to post about, so leave some comments
on what you would like me to post next.
5. I've been sick for the past two days.
6. My family and I have been going to a new church for almost a year now and we love it!
I'm in our youth group, youth praise band, and I help my mom with all the voluntering
she does at church.

10 Reasons to be Thankful

1. One word: chocolate. I could probably stop the list right here.

2. Your BFF. She laughs even when your jokes aren't that funny, cries along with you when your upset and even shares her fav. clothes with you. In short, she's always there when you need her. And that's definitely something you can be thankful for.

3. Peanut butter and jelly...coolest combo ever.

4. Family. No matter who makes up your family, you know that they'll always have your back.

5. The heartless cutie who snubbed you. He taught you that moving on is possible and that there are always other fish in the sea.

6. Rainbows. You don't see them often, but don't you feel amazing when you do?

7. Fall leaves. Nothing beats kicking your way through a pile of crispy orange, red, and golden ones.

8. Your favorite color. Just looking at it makes you happy.

9. Different cuts of jeans. Many years ago, designers made just one kind of jeans. You either looked good in them-or you didn't. Today, every girl can find a pair that's juuuust right for her.

10. Deep breaths. Life is truly a gift.

Halloween Costume part 2

I went to Wal-mart today, only because my mom told me that they had better costumes than they usually do. So with my hopes held high, I did. As soon as I walked into the costume section I saw "it". "It" was a costumes I would never see me actually wearing, but I fell in love with it instantly. There are no words to explain the costume so I will show a picture.

Snow White! How cute is this costumes! Now in the picture the skirt looks like it goes to the knee, but the skirt is just about two inches shorter in person. Now I have to get some red lipstick, and I'll be ready for Halloween!

Summer is gone, and Glitzy Glamour gets back to blogging(:

Well, the title says it all, but it is true. I have completely neglected my poor blog all summer. I just haven't had any time, and when I did have time I couldn't come up with anything to post. So here I am, updating my poor sad little blog, and it shall not be the same when I get finished!

Essie Nail Polishes

Me and mom (scooterblu's whimsy) went to Beauty Alliance last week. Beauty Alliance is a store for only hairstylists, so to get in you have to have your hair license or salon license. My parents have a salon so we can go with the salon license. Anyways they had Essie nail polishes for $.99 each! So I bought...

"Bikini with a Martini" "Material Girl"

"Bungle Jungle"
"Island Hopping"

...and "Decadent Diva". I would have gotten more, but the rest were all whites and light pinks.

Dollar General(:

Well I was upset that my local Dollar General NEVER restocks. The reason for my madness is because Dollar General now sells products. I've always wanted to buy products, but I would have to use my daddy's credit card and shipping & handling is so expensive. Although, I stayed at the lake almost all week so we went to the lake's Dollar General. They had the all the brushes except the two I already bought at my Dollar General. I got...

the foundation brush,

the defining eyeshadow brush,

the eyeshadow brush,

and the blushing, bronzing, and blending brush.

july favorites

So your probably wondering where I've been. Well I survived helping my mom with directing vacation bible school at church this week. Can we say EXHAUSTING! Then we had a carnival last night and I painted more than twenty faces. So as I rest, clean, and pack for the lake tomorrow, I figured I should do a post.

I decided to start a monthly thing where I post my monthly favorites. So these are my july favorites.

Words cannot express how amazing this product is. I will try though. Rimmel London' s Sexy Curves mascara is wonderful in so many ways. This is a mascara for everyone! It lengthens and volumizes your eyelashes, and the packaging is so cute.

I went to Dollar General monday in hopes that they restocked their E.L.F. products. Sadly they hadn't, but I did buy the eyelash curler and I love it!

Well this picture really doesn't do this lip gloss justice. In person its pinker. Anyways this is Ulta's lip gloss in "Baby".

I love candles, and these are my favorite candles. Bath and Bodys Work sleep candles. They don't really make me sleepy, but the lavender and vanilla scent is amazing.

OPI's Purple with a Purpose is the prettiest purple nail polish ever! Also, its not to dark for summer.

This my favorite lip gloss which is C.O. Bigelow's Lime flavored lip shine.

This my favorite gum ever! I love stride gum, but sweet peppermint is my favorite flavor.

I am so white! Although if I put Banana Boat's dark tanning oil on when I go tanning I get dark in half the time. Also it smells like bananas so thats another plus!

OMG! I love this whole series. If you start reading these books you will never want to put them down. It's the Pretty Little Liars series which is about five girls that were best friends in seventh grade until one went missing and the book picks up when the four left are in twelvth grade and someone keeps texting them their old secrets and claims to be their old friend that went missing. This series is not only for teenagers.

Okay first I obviously love Glamour magazine, and second I love Sandra Bullock.

Me and my mom have fallen in love with Fuze! I haven't had one that I didn't like, but my favorite is Banana Colada.
I also love smart water. Not only do I love water I just love the size of the bottles. I get these for five for five dollars at Food Lion.

Last is OPI's "Elephantastic pink". I love love love this color and it is so amazing for the summer.

4th of july(:
Well I have a post to do, but my computer is at Best Buy getting fixed by the "Geek Squad". So I have to use my mom's computer, and I don't really feel like posting my new post. But I am going to say Happy 4th of July and I hope everyone has a good one. I'm leaving in about thirty minutes to go with my family to the lake house and swim and ride the boat until five, then we're gonna have all my family over to cook hotdogs. Every year at the lake everyone that lives there buys almost five hundred dollars worth of fireworks and they all shoot them off around seven or eight. I can't wait!

Just another day with the Bargain Queens!

Well me and mom were sitting at the kitchen table eating Penn's(local burger and hot dog joint that taste way better than any fast food chain) for lunch and we decided to go shopping. Not just any kind of shopping where we go to the mall and buy a few clothes, no a normal everyday shopping trip in our town. Our itty bitty city has Walmart, Big Lots, Peebles, Walgreens, CVS Pharmacy, Rite-Aid, Cato, Payless, Family Dollar, Dollar General, Family Dollar, and Belk. I'm serious thats all we have! Anyways, we decided to go to Big Lots and our shopping trip grew from there.

I got a big bag of cotton balls for two dollars but I found the same exact bag at Dollar General later on for a dollar.

Three bottles of baby shapoo for thirty scents each! I buy baby shampoo to clean my makeup brushes.

Almost every Big Lots sells makeup. makeup is only a dollar online but with tax and shipping it adds up, but tw0 waterproof/regular mascara duos were a dollar!

After Big Lots we went down the road to Dollar Tree and bought a few things then walked over to Payless which was next door.
My mom bought these for me because they were having a buy one get the second half off. My shoes were nineteen dollars and hers were five dollars.

They also had the same sale for their jewelry so I bought two sets of earrings. One was two dollars and the othere pair were four dollars I think.

Next we walked over next door again to Cato and my mom bought me a cute yellow shirt to match my shoes.

Then me and my mom hit Dollar General on the way home and I bought these items.
I got a L.A. Colors Concealer, ten for a dollar candy sticks, and an all over brush.

This all over face brush is from also. I had no idea Dollar General sold makeup so I was super excited but everything they carry was sold out. Except for one all over face brush and a pair of eyelashes.
