My first outfit post of the year and I am very excited. I didn’t think the outfit would look good once I had it on but I have to disagree with myself. The only problem I had was if the brown belt would look good paired with black and blue colors. To my understanding the brown belt actually separated the colors from clashing too much. I was worried that the navy blue cardigan and jeans would be too matchy-matchy and also the black bodysuit, boots and hat. The brown belt gave the outfit a nice balance.
What will you be doing to be confident this year? Or what makes you confident? I would love to know because that is my main focus on this blog, this is why I started this blog to begin with, confidence. I will explain more throughout other posts but I am writting a dedicated post on why it’s my main focus. It is taking a while because I want it to be perfect and I want you all to understand where I’m coming from. But I would love to read some of the questions I asked.
Happy New Year to you all. Hopefully this year is better than the last. Let’s make it a great and confident year.
Today I want to talk about the Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Longwear Liquid Foundation. Now this isn’t my own foundation, it’s my twin sisters and since I’ve been wanting to try it out, I thought I would test it out to see if I would love to commit to it. Long story short, I love it. Now let’s get into why I love it and why I think everyone else will love it too.
All Nighter Waterproof Longwear Liquid Foundation – This foundation claims to be full coverage, matte finish and oil free.
Ok now the test and why I love this foundation. I’m rating the foundation by the three things it say’s on the bottle.
1. Full Coverage – I used one pump and applied it with my fingers and blended with a damped beauty blender. I think it is full coverage, as you can see on the photo, it left a nice and airbrushed look and for one pump it covered my dark circles. With two pumps, I’m sure I would have none. But a yes to full coverage.
2. Matte Finish – When I applied this, it instantly looked matte. I have dry skin and this worked very well on me. Throughout the day it still stayed matte. So matte finish, yes.
3. Oil Free – When I pumped this onto the back of my hand to apply on my skin, it didn’t feel oily, doesn’t give my skin a shine either. So I believe that this foundation really is oil free.
Now the waterproof part worked out perfectly because I took my son a bath and when I took him out the bath tub he put his drenched hair on my face and instantly I thought, “NO!! My foundation is going to come off,” After I dresses him I checked my skin and it left no water marks, no lines of foundation coming off. My makeup was still put. I need to go buy own, ASAP. In case you are wondering I used the shade 3.0
I hope you all enjoyed this post and helped you all out in case you are deciding to buy this foundation. If you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask.
Mighty Leaf Tea – Growing up I hated tea. I remember when I wouldn’t go to school because I was sick, I would go to my grandmas house so she can take care of me and she would make me tea. One memory stuck with me and I will never forget it. I go really sick one day and I had a fever, was throwing up and had a cough. My grandma came into her guest room which I called, “el cuartito” the little room because it was small and that’s where everyone would hang out when they were sick. Anyways she came in and told me, ” here drink the tea so you can get better and when I come back I want to see it empty, so drink it all. I hated tea as I kid and at that time I was 9 years old. I didn’t want to drink it so i tossed it behind the bed and poured it on the carpet, sorry i didnt want to drink especially knowing that thw tea came from my grandmas backyard. My grandma had, (still has) a lemongrass plant in her yard and I remember I saw her pull out some pieces and she started to boil them. When I saw that, I knew she was going to make me drink it and I said to myself, ” eeww no way” umm hello, bugs go on them probably lol. I was a stubborn kid. I never told my grandma I threw it away, I made her believe I drank the whole thing. But now I love tea. I got into tea in 2011 when I was super sick and he made me drink Chamomile tea with lemon and honey, it was good and I was surprised I loved it and shocked my boyfriend made me something lol. Then that same year I was at my grandmas and I got sick and she said drink tea, ( her lemongrass bug tea) I drank it this time at 21 years old and loved it lol, so now anything with lemongrass or chamomile I will drink, just as long as it has honey and lemon juice. I would love to hear some of your stories on how you got into to tea.
I came across the Mighty Leaf tea when I went to visit my sons grandma at her job. I was trying to decide what tea I wanted to try and she recommended this one to me and ever since I’ve been hooked. The taste of the tea alone is so good, I love how all the ingredients taste all together and that is enough flavor for me to enjoy. Most of the time I do love to add a spoon full of honey and a half lemon to give it a nice taste especially when I get sick because for some reason I get better fast. I wish I bought more than one box of this tea. Hopefully when I go back to visit back home on Thanksgiving I can stock up on this tea and other flavors. I can’t wait to put these tea bags in little stockings this Christmas.
Let it brew for 5 minutes. The tea bags are handcrafted silk tea bags and they are so soft. I love the little stitched details on the edge. The ingredients in the tea are Orange peels, Chamomile flowers, Roseships peels, Lemongrass, Lemon myrtle, Hibiscus flowers, Spearmint, Natural flavors and Orange petals.
Wild Flower Honey from Githen Bee Farm – This honey is from a local farm and it has the most delicious taste ever. The consistency is nice and silky, not thick which I hate with some honeys. I love supporting local businesses, we need more of those.
I also love the honey with almonds and yogurt. I purchased both the tea and honey from Pezzini farms in Castroville, CA. I’m sure your local mom and pop shops have some local honey sold at there shops and tea.

Right now I’m currently obsessed with off the- shoulder tops and I really want to buy some but, I can’t find one that I really like. I really like these two so much and they are perfect. This is how I would style these tops if I had them. Its pretty simple styling but its fun because their is a pop of color with the heels, handbag and hat. The jewelry is simple, just a gold layered choker.
Follow me on Polyvore to see the rest of my sets, if you would like, its at Jeanette-tinoco
