How cute is this EMOJI PLUSH CHARM. 
Haha, THAT'S kind of how my last week has been. Grrr....

POLKA DOT HAIRBAND!! Um, yeah anything that's pink and has
polka dots on it I love!! It matches my nails.

What a darling little lock. This would have come in handy
when I was going to school. So much cuter than what I 
had to use. *wink*

I love it when they include bracelets in their boxes. 
IT's soooo cute and pink. I've been wearing it a lot. 


Animal stickers!! I adore the pink poodle one. heehee...

could this be any cuter??! Panda eyes!!
This would probably freak my cats out in the morning.

Is it gum? Nooooo, it's a gum shaped eraser. 
Let's hope someone doesn't accidentally
mistake it for gum though... giggle...

the kokeshi notebook...super sweet!
Where can i get a strawberry hair charm like she has?!
Plus, doesn't she just make you wanna have blue hair?!


That is one very happy little towel! 
super cute little bear. awwww....

Ugh, I LOVE this pen!! It's a pink gel pen!
I can writes in pink!!! LOOOOOOOVE!!!
and it has a cute bear on it. 
Could you love it anymore? 

Here we go! Time to play with chocolate with 
our Apollo CHocolate kit. These were soo yummy
and fun to do. The strawberry chocolate 
was my fav by the way. heehee...

the kit comes with three tubes of chocolate in
milk chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. 
A candy mold, a mixing stick and little
round pastel candies to decorate the chocolates with.

You just take the tubes of chocolate and
put them in a bowl or cup in hot water. 
Don't open them before hand.
We want the chocolate to get melted so when you
do open them they're easy to squeeze out.


Here's the mold. Just snip off the ends of the 
chocolate tubes and get creative.
Make strawberry and chocolate candies,
create layers of the different colors, 
swirls and add the pastel candies for decoration!

Now, we're ready to put the mold into the fridge 
for a hour or two to SOLIDIFY.


Here's what they look like when you pop them out. 
They were SOOOOO good!!! Yummy!!


Now, who wants to win of these boxes!

REVIEW ♥ Studio Gear True Whipped Stain Gloss ♥



I don't know if you know this about me but I love lipstick. No, I mean I reallllly love it. I could probably have a million lipsticks and still want more. Lipstick makes me feel soo much more fabulous when I'm wearing it....just a little bit more powerful and dangerous. I'm not the only on, right? 


 I pretty much JUMPED AT THE OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW ALL FIVE OF THESE PRETTY LIQUID LIPSTICKS FROM STUDIO GEAR. They're called True Whipped Stain Gloss...they're supposed to leave a stain on your lips for long lasting color throughout the day. They apply like a lip gloss...going on smooth and moist and then dry to a lovely matte finish. I love the matte look they give my lips! The boxes that the  lipsticks come in, come in the same color as the lipstick...simple but striking. I think they would look lovely lined up on a vanity. 


I really like the packaging. You can see the colors clearly through the tubes & they look so pretty all lined up! The LIPSTICKS are super pigmented and apply smoothly. They're very lightweight feeling...you almost don't know you have any lipstick on. I find they do last throughout the day even through drinking tea (Yep, I love my tea!!) and eating yummy things like chicken avocado salads....it was soo good peeps. heehee...


The lip glosses come with a doe applicator and you only need one swipe of the lipstick to be fully opaque on your lips. It's that fabulous. Look how pigmented it it pretties! I'm wearing true red below. *wink*



THERE ARE FIVE COLORS THAT COME IN THESE STAIN lip glosses.

From top to bottom in the photo below here they are. 

♡ TRUE FUCHSIA.
Probably my favorite color. I love pink! 

 TRUE PEBBLE.  
I was kind of worried about this color and didn't think it would look good on me. Looking in the mirror after putting it on I still wasn't sure. But I snapped a few selfies and frankly, it looks really pretty! I was kind of surprised. 

♡ True Red. 
Yep, looks awesome on me. Red is pretty much fabulous.

♡ True wine. 
Love this color. I love dark vivid lip colors. 

♡ True burgundy.
This was another one I wasn't sure about...*wrinkles nose* burgundy is not really my favorite color but again SURPRISINGLY looks wonderful! 


Below I'm wearing TRUE PEBBLE....such a lovely color right? Would love lovely with a manicure in a pinky beige color with pops of hot pink.
and can i just say how freaking gorgeous my eyes look in this photo...man, when light hits them the right way they pop, don't they? *wink*


To see more photos of these gorgeous lip glosses on me to see how pigmented and gorgeous they really are...just go follow my instagram! These are so lovely and I'm so happy I got the chance to try them out. I definitely think I will purchase these when mine run out. *dimple*

But if you want to go get some right now how about a 10% discount for all my fabulous readers?! Just use code: cherrylips16 when purchasing at their website. I love a good discount! :)

What do you think about them? What's your favorite color or have you tried Studio Gear before?

REVIEW ♥ Weekend Nail Aesthetics ♥

Sunday, May 1, 2016

le sigh...the weekend is almost over and I'm not ready to stART A NEW WEEK AGAIN. It's been pretty slow lately with a few orders here and there. I'm currently working on a massive order for our fabulous stockist Bella Dawna Boutique in Aptos, CA so if you're in the area make sure to check them out. *wink*

Plus, I'm contemplating redoing the website into something simpler to make it easier to search and consolidating our pretty potions into the best selling ones so if you have a scent or product you'd like to see stay just comment below!! 



I'M ALWAYS ON THE LOOKOUT FOR PRETTY NEW NAIL POLISH & THESE SWEETIES ARE SOOO AFFORDABLE I GOT THREE OF THEM TO TRY OUT. I'M SO GLAD I DID BECAUSE I LOVE THEM! I GOT THEM AT WALMART BUT I THINK YOU CAN GET THEM AT DOLLAR STORES AS WELL as online. (See below) They cost between $1.50 to $1.99.

I GOT TWO OF MY FAVORITE COLORS, PINK (FOREVER) AND MINT (TRADITION). PLUS, A THIRD ONE IN A NEON CORAL COLOR (FRILL). TOPCOAT I USED IS SECHE VITE.

My favorite color was definitely the pink one. They all needed two to three coats to be completely opaque. Sometimes they could be a little streaky but I love the fact that there were no air bubbles when I painted my nails. With other brands I sometimes would get air bubbles...blech... 



Look how pretty the pink came out...super smooth with a top coat of the seche Vite.  They lasted for about a week and didn't chip. I just had to redo some nails as they grew. 





This is the neon coral one...Frill. Vibrant!!! I would totally recommend these peeps. I'm currently wearing the mint color which you can see up at my Instagram. That one was a little harder to apply to my nails with it being a little bit thicker than the other ones but it's so pretty! 

Hmm, maybe I should revisit adding nail polish to our shop. I might have to look into that. *wink* 

Want to get some for yourself? Get the nail polish HERE!
Here's to the start to a fabulous new week!
