My makeup collection + room tour?

Here is the overall view of my vanity where I do my makeup.

Opened makeup mirror. From here I will open each draw and show you what is on the desk(:

Some lotions and my perfumes 
My current foundation, an acne treatment, and my embosser. It stamps into books, "From the personal library of Jordan (and my middle and last name)." 
Hanging on the door knob to one of my draws, I have my Betsy Johnson necklace

When you open the first draw, I have my palettes. The ones in the front are stacked on one another. 
And then this smashbox palette lays on top.
Next, I have a draw with my single eye shadows, paint-pots, and eye makeup
In the center pull out draw I have my face products, and in the back q-tips, wedges, cotton, things like that.
In the next draw I have random hair tool and free samples.
Next, contains my 2 holiday sets from smash box, unopened makeup, and nyx jumbo eye pencils.
On my desk, I have a spinning makeup table from QVC, that isnt really holding anything except lip products. The 2 larger makeup kits are also sitting out. 

Then, I have my brushes in a cup from the Dixie Stampede
After my desk, I have my jewelry bow on the wall. Here is a sneak peek 

Then, going around to the other side of this room, I have a rack with some bags and belts, a guitar case, and on the wall you can see my sunglasses hanging up. 
Last, I just have a random pair of crutches that I was on early this year.

How do you guys organize your stuff? (:

Beauty, Music, & Book Haul

I have midterms Tuesday and Thursday, so I took today to de-stress a little bit. How you ask? Shopping! Along with Panera and Starbucks(: So, here is what I picked up!
I decided to show you guys the add the blush was advertised in. (It was laying next to where I was taking pictures lol) I also got this curling iron which I tried when I got home and have mixed feelings about. I will let you guys know what I think later.

I am currently reading Hex Hall, I didn't but it today, just thought I would share(: For books, I picked up Something Borrowed, Bed of Roses, and Rumors. For hair, I got aussie, 3 minute miracle. I used it tonight and so far, I really like it! It leaves my hair super soft and smells super good! I haven't seen something like the  packages before either, so its a good change. (In the background you can see my crimp-er, straightener, and various products) And at the bottom, I got a Train and an Aerosmith CD. Did you guys get any goodies recently?

Here is the Dream Bounce Blush I got. I had picked up two colors, but when I got in the car, I realized one had  been opened and used. Ew!  So I went back in Ulta and returned it. I got a light, bubble gum pink color.

Winter Fashion!

So for winter, I have a few go-to items! 
I love wearing a cute skirt with tights in the winter! Not to great for super cold days, but a great way to look cute and stylish in the winter. If you have ripped up jeans, you can also wear a patterned pair of tights under them, for a cute peek -a- boo look.  
Boots are a super adorable and super quick way to spice up any look. There are tons of styles to choose from, including ankle boots, combat boots, heeled boots, knee high boots, over the knee boots, and so many more! In the picture I have above, I have the boots in brown and black, and I wear them all the time. This is going on my third year using them and they have held up perfect! Some of my boot options include lace up black heeled combat boots, the two mentioned above, black cowboy boots, caramel ankle boots (like the ones above, only ankle style), heeled tan ankle boots, and black ankle boots. 
My favorite way to wear them are with a peacoat, skinny jeans, and a scarf. They look good with almost any outfit though!


Scarfs are also a winter must! BUT, the cool thing about them are that they can be used in any season! In winter I wear heavier ones, and use them in layering to achieve different looks. You can go to youtube and find some awesome ways to wear/tie them!

Fun Socks!
Any kind of fun socks! They are super cute and extremely warm! Knee socks, fuzzy socks, anything!

Also cute coats, but no specifics!
What are your winter staples?

Fashion Show!

The show was tons of fun, but extremely exhausting at the same time. Saturday was 6 hours rehearsal with no brakes,( in heals), and then I was at the show for 8 hours Sunday (in heals). I barely had time to eat and sleep! But, it was a great experience! These are three pictures the crew shot, before, and after the show. I modeled the pink ball gown first, and then the silver mermaid dress. I had a 60 second wardrobe change, and with these dresses it was tricky, but we got it done. Everyone did fabulous, and I am proud to be a part of this. These pictures do me, or the dresses, no justice, but I included them anyway. (I have some pictures from backstage that will go up in a later post. ) They had originally planned gift bags, but we did not receive them. However, they had raffles, and my aunt won a prize and gave it to me as a congratulations. It was all the perfume and lotions from the Sex And The City LUST Collection, and I will do reviews on them. (They are a.m.a.z.i.n.g.! 
After coming home Sunday at 9 tired, sore, still having to study for midterms Tuesday and cut up*, I have no regrets. 
*After rehearsal, run throughs, pictures, and changes, all the crinoline in the dresses cut up my legs from my hips down to my knees. It wasn't bad, but still stung. 
Overall, I had a great time! :D

Prom Dress Fashion Show!

Tomorrow is super exciting for me! I have a dress rehearsal for a Prom Dress Fashion show! At 3 o'clock tomorrow, I'm going with one of my best friends to the rehearsal. I am in the second halve of the show modeling full, ball gowns,( one mermaid style and one full and fluffy) and my friend a short cocktail style, and a skinny homecoming style. (A-symmetrical). I am so excited and blessed to have this opportunity and am pumped to go have a great time. We also will get gift bags from the companies, after the real show, this Sunday. I will post pictures and tell you all how it goes! 
Also, I am in a magazine called Gladys, coming out on January seventeenth, and I will post pictures of that as well, when it comes out.
Just to finish off this update, I would like to say Happy New Year to everyone! This year is going to be quite exciting for me, and I will update as I go. Have a great night everyone!(:

Beautiful Creatures Review

Gripping. Enthralling. Enchanting.
Beautiful Creatures was simply as the name suggests, full of Beautiful Creatures. Kami Garcia and Magaret Stohl created a mysterious, historically influenced, paranormal romance that I found was put together magically. Some parts were a little boring, but mostly because the book was so long. I loved the unexpectedness of all the characters besides Ethan. Ethan, and sometimes Lena, usually did what was expected of them. The ending of the book made me what to find out next, but did not have me leaving immediately to go buy the second book, Beautiful Darkness. 
Beautiful Creatures is the first book of the Caster Chronicles. It was published on December 1st 2009 by Little, Brown. Currently, there are three books in the series, and I hope everyone goes and checks them out!
Also, I would just like to add that I loved Amma, Boo, Macon, Larkin and Ridley for minor characters. 
If you have read this book, what did you think?
