May Ipsy Bag Review

I don't think I've ever been so excited before when I've opened the cute pink packaging that holds my Ipsy bag. First off: the bag is just adorable. It's definitely my favorite Ipsy bag yet. But even better when I opened it up, it was like hitting the jack pot! Five things that are just amazing. This months bag was sooo worth it!

 In my bag I got: Briogeo Rosarco Milk leave-in conditioning spray  (full size $20), Eyelure Naturals Number 20 lashes (full size $5.99) , Pixi Beauty Bronzer in Summertime (full size $18), Skone cosmetics Pretty eyes eyeliner in Navy (full size $15), Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Lip Pencil in Ozone (full size $20) and two samples of the Revolution Lipgloss by Urban Decay.

Favorite Summer Blushes

I'm not 100% sure if I've ever mentioned it but I love blushes. They're my favorite makeup product to buy, try and play with! With saying that these are my top five favorite blushes for this time of year! 



Benefit Rockateur Blush- Despite hating the packaging of benefit blushes and this one's particular design I have fallen in love with this blush. I got this blush because I wanted something that was a rosey-gold color but wasn't completely flat. This shade is perfect-it's a rosey-gold so it does give a bit of that "I'm wearing bronzer but not really" sheen but also has a pink twinge that brightens the face.


Kat Von D Everlasting Face Shaper Blush in Por Vida- First of all this blush is so creamy and pigmented. It's so pigmented that I originally had trouble applying it. With this blush less is better! It's a bright coral color that automatically reminds me of summer and it has a nice sheen that's not too shimmery


NARS Blush in Deep Throat- This is one of NARS' cult blushes with a rude name (and for some reason that makes me love NARS even more). I like this one a tad bit more than Orgasm, NARS' other naughty blush, because Deep Throat is a softer peach color with small silver shimmery pieces that reflect the light naturally as compared to the bright pink flush with larger more noticeable gold specks. This is for the days when I want something naturally but don't feel like reaching for my Josie Maran Cheek Gelee!


Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in True Love- I call this blush the perfect flush blush. It's a matte blush in that perfect I've-just-done-a-bit-of-exercise color. This particular blush is a bit hard to get the pigment onto the brush as the blush itself is a bit stiff but once you do the color pay off is so worth it. I love it for a perfect no makeup makeup look.


Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée in Poppy Paradise- This is my all time favorite blush. If I were to pick one blush to use everyday with out fail, this would be the one. First off Josie Maran products are good for you and the enviornment, this particular product features natural ingredients, organic argan oil and is also cruelty free and vegan. The product itself is a bit scary in the pan but once you apply it (my favorite way to apply is with my ring finger) it gives the prettiest wash of color that sinks into the skin and lasts all day. This product is also extremely hydrating and has the best cool feeling when first applied. I love it.


What's your favorite summer blush?

Sunday | Ripped Jeans

I'm Wearing: Top: Loft // Cardi: F21 // Jeans: Kohl's // Lipstick: L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche in Wisteria Rose

For some reason I have fallen in love with these jeans. I normally hate ripped/distressed jeans but these are so comfy and look great on me that I don't mind the rips. They give a bit of an edge to an otherwise boring outfit, you know? I also have been really loving black clothing lately and that's so strange for me. Normally I'm almost anti-black clothing but for some reason I've been drawn to black bottoms, sweaters and even a scarf or two!

I wore this outfit for a casual Sunday outing. It was the perfect mix of casual but put together so that I didn't feel over dressed or under dressed. Other than that this weekend was pretty laid back! What about you?

April Ipsy Bag Review

For those of you who have been living under a small rock (I say small because not everybody loves makeup and such like I do) Ipsy is a curated service where, after taking a questionaire you recive a beauty profile and then from there you'll recieve 4-5 beauty products a month. Usually within each bag is one full sized product and multiple deluxe samples. The bag is $10 a month (plus a small shipping fee, mine is $0.47 I believe).
The theme for this month's bag was "Beautifully Bohemian" which for some was perfect for Cochella and the rest of the music festivals happening in the next few months. The bag was a wicker like bag with bright contrast weaving. While the bag was not my taste it seems to be sturdy and decently made.

My bag came with 5 items this month, three that I'm excited to try and two that I could really without. The first thing I noticed when I opened the bag was the lotion, which is actually a daily moisturizer by Lather (full size here for $21). I opened this and popped a bit on my hand, while the smell was not something I liked it felt pretty decent otherwise! The next thing that caught my eye was definitely the nail polish as it was the second biggest item. The nail polish is by Julie and the color isn't crazy unique but I'm all for a new nail polish! Finally this next item is the teeny tiny eye shadow by theBalm. I have never tried any products from theBalm but have heard great things about the brand and the highlighters they've got. The shade of this one is Flirty from the fun Nude Dude palette.
The last two items are two things I'm not too excited for. The first is a lipgloss by Starlooks, the color is not my favorite and the consistency isn't to my liking. It was too gooey. The second was a perfume (the brand wasn't listed or if it was I didn't see it) that was too floral for my liking.

Epitome of Spring

I'm Wearing: Top: Target  // Jeans: Kohl's // Shoes: Target // Purse:Target // Necklace: Peggy Li Creations // Bracelet: Kate Spade

It has finally decided to be spring here in Buffalo and I couldn't be more excited. There's nothing I like more than not having to wear a jacket when I'm going outside! This shirt is, to me the epitome of spring; Flowy, pastel and clean, I love it!

e.l.f Blush Palette

 This is a blogger enabled purchase. You know the ones I'm talking about right, you'll see a review on a blog/YouTube and it might not be something you need but when you see it in the store you have to buy it to try it out? Well Fleur was saying how much she liked the e.l.f Blush Palette and I definitely do not need another blush but it was only $6 so I caved and bought it.
 I have the palette in the shade light which has four blushes, two matte shades, one shimmer shade and a final shade that's a bronzer. My favorite of the blush shades, in the pan was definitely either the top left or the bottom left but after trying them all I have to say that I like all of them and I love the bottom left shade. It's a bit strawberry and definitely perfect for spring! The bottom right has just a little bit too much shimmer for my everyday liking and the bronzer shade is a great contour color! The top left shade, to me, seems like it'd be a great dupe for Gaiety or Angelika from NARS but since I have neither I can't swear by that.

The packaging of this palette is pretty great for a $6 product, and the mirror is huge. The blushes also pop out of the casing so you could customize it into your own palette which is pretty cool!

It looks...different around here!


Hey y'all! I have been struggling with Jessica's Wonderland, not only it's look but also its name. To me, with that name, I felt very restricted. I felt on some ways that it forced me too have a certain theme-that I was limited to only the fluffy things in life. But after Liz from Delightful Tacky talked about her re-branding I knew that it was a good choice to still do a re-design but to keep my name. I like that Jessica's Wonderland is light and fluffy and even though I sometimes feel a little restricted. I know that I don't always have to post happy go lucky posts. This is my internet home, if I want to talk about the horrors of being a teenager I can, but after some deep rethinking and stepping away from the blog for awhile (due to the weather and the blogging burn out) I feel that Jessica's Wonderland is here to stay.

Now onto the fun things! 

I last changed my blog layout in February of 2014, about a year ago. At the time I was looking for blog templates that featured gold because I love how gold looks in a blog design but after I found my previous one I fell in love and for over a year-I loved it. It felt right but when I took my unannounced blogging break up this year I kept getting discouraged looking at the layout. It wasn't me any longer. It didn't fit.
I started looking again after that, for a long while I couldn't find anything I loved until I stumbled onto Brand Me Beautiful and their templates. I loved the selection of gold filled themes and I knew that I would use one for the re-design I had in mind. It took three week before I decided to buy the Editorial theme and a few days later it went up and I finished the rest of my re-design. I am incredibly happy with how my little corner of the web looks now and I hope you like it too!

Stella| Stella McCartney

I'm really picky when it comes to smells. I don't lust after that nutty scent everyone love, I don't like sickly sweet scents in anything besides a cupcake and a floral fragrance is alright as long as it's not overpowering. I love vanilla and musky scents but sometimes I want something new.

I spotted Kate of Ghost Parties review on this perfume. What appealed to me was that she said it had a musky edge to the mainly floral scent, because like I mentioned I am particular about what I like to wear as a scent. I sat on it for a while and then decided to go to my local Sephora to smell it. At first whiff, in the bottle I disliked it, but after I sprayed it on the sample paper and let it settle a bit I fell in love.

I'm pretty rubbish at describing scents but according to the website the notes are rose, peony flower, mandarin and amber. I can really smell the peony flower and amber at first but by the time it dries it smells so delectable as all the scents blends together.

I was surprised at how long this lasted, I stayed on all day and if I happen to have a rehearsal it stays through about half of the time I'm there, which I'm perfectly okay with. What I love about this is that you'll think it's gone of faded but then you'll get a whiff of it again.

Quebec City Photo Diary (Part 3: The Churches)

Quebec City is very rich with Catholic influences. They've got two beautiful churches and I thought I'd share them both with you. The first set of pictures is of Cathedral-Basilica of Notre-Dame de Québec, and the second is the Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré.

Quebec City Photo Diary (Part 2: Dog Sledding)

I'm back with a second Quebec photo diary, this time we're going to be focusing on my personal favorite activity (besides shopping) which was, dog sledding. This was my favorite, because we got to spend time with the dogs before we went sledding and we as the name would suggest, we went dog sledding. Now, these dogs loved doing this, I never saw any of them look fearful or unhappy. I also would like to point out that yes, these dogs are chained up but it's for their safety as well as our own, the visitors. But enough with that, on to the ample amounts of doggies!!
