Welcome to my new site!

Hi everyone!

I have moved from wordpress.com to wordpress.org, as I mentioned before, I wanted to take blogging more seriously and decided that a good step would be to move to wordpress.org. I should mentioned I charged my site name from wonder of something curvy to wonder of beauty and curves, as I found it more fitting to my content. All of you have been moved along with me, so you’ll be following the new site. I hope that you decide to stick around with me through these changes. It will take some getting used to, but I am excited to have this new site.

Thank you guys! I will be posting new content on this site soon! 🙂

Makeup Haul – Colourpop  

Hi guys! 

I finally received my order from colorpop. I ordered early December, hoping that I would have some of these items in time for the holidays , but it took much longer than I thought. This time wasn’t asked to pay customs, not really sure why, but I won’t complain about it. I was excited when they came to Sephora but they mostly have bundles and limited products which is disappointing, so I still prefer to purchase from their website. Colourpop has become one of my favourite brands ever, they have tons of products for great prices. I was excited to order a couple of new products from them. 

First, I ordered a super shock cheek blush in the shade Birthday Suit. I am obsessed with the two shades I have, I like the creamy consistency and they last all day.

For reference, I have the shades Aphrodisiac, which is pretty dark and I have to apply a lot of it so it can be seen, I don’t plan on repurchasing this one when I run out for that reason but I do enjoy how it looks. Cruel Intentions though is beautiful, I only apply a little bit of it and would repurchase it. So far I am loving Birthday Suit as well, it’s a beautiful light pink. Ever time I buy a blush, I just want to buy another one. They’re so beautiful and I want to try every shade lol

I also purchased their new concealer. It was tricky trying to figure out which one would work for me. I went for the shade Medium tan. It’s pretty much the colour of my skin, so if after testing it out, I end up loving it I’d repurchase a shade lighter. I’ll be posting a review once I try it for some time.

Since I love their super shock blushes, I was curious to try their cream highlighters as well. I purchased the shade Smoke N Whistles. It looks intense, I’m not too into blinding highlighters so I hope that it’ll be easy to blend in to soften the look. 

I purchased 4 super shock shadows. I went crazy during the holidays for their super shock shadow in the shade Fluffy from their Sephora collection, so I wanted to try more shades. So far I think my favourites are the shimmer to metallic shades. The consistency is the same as the blushes which I enjoy. 

I ordered one of their new super nova liquid shadows in the shade Walk of Fame. I’m looking forward to trying this product. I think it’s going to be a little tricky and messy to apply but we will see. It’s such a pretty shade, and I thought it’d be perfect to wear for the holidays. 

I also had to purchase more of their liquid lipsticks. This is pretty much all I wear on my lips ever since I tried them a while ago. I love every single shade I have, but of course I have my go tos. Just as the super shock blushes, I buy new shades and fall in love with them and I just want to keep trying more haha I will do a separate post to show what the shades look like on my skin tone for your reference. Check my Colourpop Swatches & Looks 

And that’s it! I’m so excited to try new products and shades from Colourpop.

New Years Resolutions for 2018! 

Hi guys!

Today I wanted to share my new years resolution. I used to have resolutions for the new year every year when I was younger but I think it’s been a few years since I’ve set goals for myself for the year. I figured I should do it to have some motivation for changes or improvements throughout the year. They are just hard to stick to, I feel like I start the year following my goals and then I forget about them lol but I will try to stick to them as long as I can, plus I have ones that I really do want to accomplish.

  • Eat healthy and exercise more: Honestly we don’t eat a lot of junk food, but our main weakness is sweets. I think I’m better than my boyfriend at not buying them and staying away from them. But he buys me chocolates or desserts cause he knows I love them and so does he but that isn’t very helpful when I try to eat healthy. I have been exercising more and have lost about 8 pounds so I plan to keep it up this new year, and even if I don’t lose more weight, I just want to feel better and have more energy. 
  • Meet people and make friends: Okay, this one is difficult. It’s hard to make new friends now. I only really talk to people at work but I’m not close enough to hang out outside work. Other than that, I don’t have any other place where I could meet people. When I was in high school, I had tons of friends but lost contact with them when we all went to different colleges and universities. I slowly lost contact with old coworkers than I used to hang out with and now I find myself having no friends. It’s not as bad as you’d think, but I do get bored and lonely sometimes, so it’d be nice to have a small group of friends to talk to and hang out with. 
  • Keep up with blogging: I first started blogging in 2013, but I wasn’t consistent and only blogged when I was bored. I tried to do it often but always found myself lacking ideas. I even went to only blogging twice or three times in one year, 2015, I believe. I decided to start blogging again in July of last year and have been much more consistent. I am planning to keep up with it as I do enjoy it. It’s something I look forward to, specially cause it keeps me busy and interacting with others. 
  • Read more: I remember when I was young and I would stay up all night reading. Later on when I was 16 and moved to Canada, I had to learn the new language so reading wasn’t something I enjoyed much as it seemed like a chore to me. After I learned the language and was more comfortable, I picked up reading as it was easier and went back to enjoying it. I’m not sure why I stopped, for the last few years I’ve only been reading a couple of books per year which is awful. In this new year I want to go back to loving books, so far I’m doing good. I’m reading Finders Keepers by Stephen King and I am enjoying it.

    Those are my main goals for the year. I hope to travel around Canada this year, go for more walks and keep up with my hobbies such as makeup, knitting and baking. I am looking forward to what’s to come in the new year, I hope that this will be a great year for me, for my loved ones, and for all of you guys. Thank you for reading! Please let me know if you have posted your new years resolution, I’d love to check it out.

    Favourites of 2017! 

    Hi everyone and happy new year! 

    I hope that everything is going well so far and that your year has started in the best way possible. I’ve been sick since new years eve but have finally started to feel a little better today. I figured that I’d start my blog this year with all of my favourites of 2017!

    Beauty 

    It was hard to pick only a few things for my beauty favourites of 2017 as I tried lots of new products and enjoyed many of them. I I was able to narrow it down and pick ones that I use the most. 

    The Tartelette in Bloom Clay palette by Tarte was my very first hight end eyeshadow palette ever at the beginning of 2017. My brother gave me a sephora gift card for Christmas and this is what I bought. I’ve used this so many times throughout the year. It was a great palette to start as you can create so many different looks, is easy to blend and the colors are suitable for every day looks. I still love this palette and I’d recommend everyone to try it. I like that it still looks great even though I’ve used it tons. 

    This BB tinted primer by Tarte was one of my favourite bb creams this year. I wear it every day when I’m off work and I don’t want to wear my regular bb cream. This one is lighter and light coverage, it evens my skin tone and makes my skin look healthy and natural. I apply it with my fingers so it’s quick and easy. You only need a little bit so this will probably last me all year. 

    I bought this brushes by BH cosmetics later in the year but they are the best drug store brushes I have tried. They are soft and best of all they don’t shed at all, which happened to all brushes I tried over the years. I use a rubber makeup brush scrub to clean them properly (pictured above) it’s in a heart shape from Amazon, which is so handy and is much easier to clean them properly.

    This Tarte blush in the shade Paaarty is one of the ones I’ve worn non stop since I got it from Sephora for my free birthday gift. Just like the Tartelette palette, it still looks great even though it’s been used tons. The Colourpop super shock blush in Cruel Intentions is also one I’ve been using so much. I pretty much alternate between these two blushes and they are definitely my favourites. 

     I finally got to try he brand Colourpop this year. I love their eyeshadows and blushes but my favourite purchase from them has been their liquid lipsticks. I wear them almost every day, they stay on all day and are easy to apply. My favourite shades are Beeper, Tulle, Avenue and Time Squeare. Check my Colourpop Swatches & Looks to see all the shades I have. 

    I use the Essence lip liners to line my lips before applying the Colourpop liquid lipsticks. They are super affordable, they are creamy and long lasting. They have made applying lipsticks much easier and makes lipstick application looks better. 

    The Origins clear improvement charcoal mask is something I use pretty much every night and I am so glad I discovered it. I struggle with breakouts and applying this overnight helps to get rid of them quickly. Check my review of it. 

    I love this Soap & Glory body wash. It smells amazing, and it leaves my skin super soft and hydrated. I used to think it was overpriced but was I tried it, I fell in love with it. It’s totally worth the price. 

     

    My absolute favourite nail polish of 2017 was the Kiely Sinful colors in the shade Kreme de la kreme. I wore in so many occasions throughout the year and I still love it. I will definitely repurchase it when I run out. 

    Others: 

    These bracelets were gifts from my mom and my boyfriend, the ring is also from my mom. I wore them so much and they still are my favourite jewelry to wear. 

    I haven’t had these earing for very long but I love them. I wear them every other day to alternate with my other favourite ones that I’ve had for years. 

    One f my favourite things this year was our record player. We’ve enjoyed going to different shops and fairs to find new vinyl records to expand our collection. My boyfriend has more metal and rock music and I have classics like Frank Sinatra, Niel Dimond and various others but we still enjoy each others music. I love sitting down to knit or read a book and play our records. 

    My new furniture my boyfriend got me for my birthday is definitely making this list. I love the look of it, they have so much room and it just makes my room look more put together. Check my What I Got for My Birthday post. 

    And that’s it! I had so many things I loved on 2017 and I’m sure some of these things will be loved in 2018 but I look forward to finding new things to enjoy. Please let me know if you have posted your 2017 favourites, I’d love to check them out. Thank you for reading and have a great weekend!

    Dirty Works Bath and Body Haul! 

    Hi guys!

    Today I’m going to share wih you all my new bath and body products by Dirty Works. I found this brand at Winners, I’m not sure if they are sold in other stores in Canada and if or where they are sold in the States. I first tried their face wash thinking it was Soap and Glory, and later realized that it was a different brand but similar packaging. I enjoy this brand and everything I have tried so far. These are all products my boyfriend got me for Christmas and I’m so excited to try them all. Let’s get started! 

    Face: 

    Burts Bees facial cleansing wipes, I’ve never tried anything by this brand, and that’s exactly the reason why he wanted to get something by them, so I could try it.  Face wipes by Dirty works. These are both makeup removers so that’s awesome. 

    He knows I love face masks and face wash so he got me sheet masks, two different face masks and face wash. That’s actually the one I have tried by them which I really like. It’s not makeup remover and that’s why I use face wipes before I wash my face. 

    Body butter/lotion: 

    I got 4 little pots of body butters, this is perfect as I can take them with me. I always need to carry hand cream with me or my dry hands drive me crazy. One of them is inside a set you will see later. 

    Two more hand creams,  3 body lotions, and foot butter. 

    4 pots of body butter. It’s safe to say I won’t have to worry about dry skin this winter and this will probably lasts me up until next winter. But who knows, I love applying cream all over after a shower so with all of the body lotions and body butters, I’m set for a while. 

    Body wash/Scrubs:

    He got me a new body wash by soap and glory. He gave me one last year for Christmas and I loved it. And 4 body scrubs, I tried the one in the pot and it’s awesome so I’m happy to get it and I’m excited to try the other ones.

    One set for foot care and a shower set. It has a bath soak which I’m hoping to use as body wash since I don’t take baths. I wish I could, but we use the tub as a shower so it seems unsanitary to me to take baths in it. If we had a separate shower, I would totally be into baths. 

    Hair:

    I love putting coconut oil in the hair before bed and washing it the next day. So I’m so happy to get these two litter pots. 

    And that’s finally it! I can’t believe how much stuff he got me this year. I am so lucky to have been spoiled like this, and I appreciate how much thought and work he put into it. As I mentioned in my last post, he was making up for not being able to give me much past years, which he didn’t have do but he so wanted to, I’m so lucky! 

    Check my What I Got for Christmas 2017 post. 

    Thank you guys for reading! Have a great weekend! xx oh and happy new year!

    What I got for Christmas 2017 

    Hi guys!

    So I’m going to be sharing with you what I got for Christmas! This is one of my favourite videos and blogs and I always look forward to them after Christmas. I’m of course not trying to brag or anything like that, I find it really fun and is exciting to see what others get for Christmas from their loved ones. If you don’t enjoy them, please keep in mind other people do and so do I and that’s the main reason why I do them.

    Now that we got the awkward but needed disclaimer out of the way, let’s get started! For those who follow me on instagram @wonderofsomething , you have already seen the way my boyfriend boxed my gifts this Christmas. I absolutely loved it and I’m heartbroken that we have to take the box apart to make space in his room. 

    He went crazy this year. He has already warned me that this will probably be the only time he goes this big, and I’m absolutely okay with that. I never expected him to go this crazy but he says he’s making up for our past Christmases when be wasn’t able to get me much, he didn’t have to do this of course but he’s amazing and he wanted to. 

    First, he got me an eye mask which is so cute and comfy. A Tina shirt and underwear, two pairs of cozy leggings, and tools to help me cut my hair at home, a kindom hearts pop figure (not pictured)

    A one piece bathing suit that almost looks like a dress, nail files, a bunch of lip balm of different flavours,  a bunch of candy, leggings and a top to work out. 

    He got me 3 blankets because I live in them. Two super cute and warm cozy slippers, 2 Pj pants. 

    Blocks for yoga, resistance bands, a weight vest and pilates rowing. I’m so excited to use all of this to work out! 

    A cooking book with lots of healthy recipes, two books by one of my favourite writers Joy Fielding! And a book he loved when he was a kid for me to read, The Tripods. He also got me Taylor Swift’s album Red in Vinyl, which is her last album I like. I’m not crazy about her new music other than a few songs. 

    He got me 3 mugs cause he knows I love tea. One of them is from someone at work, I actually got two from work but one isn’t in the picture. 

    And a whole bunch of scratch ticktes. I love love these things lol so I was super excited to get them.

    Both his parents got me a freaking sewing machine! I am so excited for this! I can finally do all the sewing projects I’ve been wanting to do but by hand would take me forever. 

    From my brother I got a Sephora gift card which I’m excited to use. We also got a gift card from my extended family secret Santa to The Keg. My parents got me a new purse for work. I needed a new one so bad! This one is huge! I have to get used to it, I don’t think I’ve ever owned a bag this big. I can fit a million things in it! It’s awesome! 

    Believe it or not, my boyfriend got me tons of bath and body items which I will show in a different post. There are so many so I figured I’ll do a seperate post as a haul haha I’m so lucky to have been spoiled like this by him and also by my family. I had a wonderful Christmas spending time with my loved ones. 

    Thank you guys for reading! If you have posted one of this or are planning to please let me know in the comments below, I’d love to check them out!

    OOTD – Christmas day! 

    Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas day with your loved ones.  I had to work during the day but it’s a nice day so I don’t really mind coming in for the day. We go around giving presents and sweets all day so it’s a lot of work but it’s fun. I wanted to wear something festive and since I had to get a Christmas sweater for our Christmas party for the families, I bought this dress I could wear for both days. It was from Ardene, everyone loved it and I also wore a hand band with antlers. 

    I also wanted my makeup to be bright and fun. We’re not allowed to wear too much makeup to work but it’s allowed in occasions like this. 

    Eyes: Carli Bybel Deluxe Palette (I know..I’ve been using it non stop), Princess Lash by Essence, Make me Brow by Essence.

    Face: Wet n Wild photo focus foundation, HD powder by Elf, clay blush in Paaarty by Tarte, tarteist contour palette by Tarte, Sephora brand setting spray. 

    Lips: Baby Lips in Strike a Rose by Maybelline. 

    After work, we went over to my boyfriend’s mom for dinner so I had to quickly change. I wore one of my favourite long sweaters from Zara that I got on sale for $20, black leggings from Sirens and I had no time to touch up my makeup or anything but it didn’t look too bad. 

    I had such a busy day but we had a nice dinner and watched some tv shows together. I hope that everyone had a great day and that everyone got to celebrate with family or friends. 

    Thanks for reading and have a great week!

    OOTN – Christmas Eve! 

    Merry Christmas everyone! 

    As some of you know, I celebrate Christmas on Christmas eve. We get together around 8-9 pm, we hang out, play some games and watch movies. At midnight we say a prayer together, we eat turkey sandwiches or some eat turkey and stuffing, and then we open presents. It’s the tradition that I believe most people in Latin America follow, so on the 25th we don’t really do much. Back home we used to get together again to eat leftovers and spend some more time together but we don’t do that here, we just stay home in our pjs and enjoy the day, or some of us (me) have to work. 

    Even though I knew I’d be tired the next day, I still enjoy to see my family and spend some time with them. But let’s get to what I wore: 

    I recently bought this cute long sleeve blouse at American Eagle. It was on sale for $20 and I fell in love with it! I wore my favourite Hi rise black jeggings also by AE. I didn’t really have a chance to take a picture in front of a mirror for my outfit and we didn’t take pictures with my family either. 

    I was only able to take pictures until after the celebration so my makeup doesn’t look as neat so excuse the messy lipstick and my tired looking eyes, I was just exhausted from work lol

    Eyes: Carli Bybel Deluxe Palette, Princess Lash mascara by Essence, Make me Brow by Essence.

    Face: Pro focus foundation by Wet n wild, HD powder by elf, clay blush by Tarte in Paaarty.

    Lips: Lip liner by Essence in Red Blush,  Colourpop liquid lipsticks in Avenue. 

    I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! I’ll be posting my Christmas day outfit and what I got for Christmas very soon. Tha k you for reading and have a great week !

    OOTD – Work Christmas Lunch 

    Hi guys! 

    We had our Christmas Lunch at work yesterday and wanted to show you what I wore. The company always has a big party for Christmas but I didn’t go this year. Our department gets together to have lunch and spend time together, which we don’t get to do very often, so it was nice to sit down, chat and enjoy some food. 

    I got this cute Christmas sweater from Ardene. This is actually my first Christmas sweater ever, I love the idea of Christmas sweaters but I always find them too overpriced so I’ve never bought one. I’ve worn this so many times this month though, that I’m considering buying some on sale to wear next year. I also wore a warm pair of leggings from Sirens for $10 and my favourite brown boots that my parents gave to me two christmases ago from forever21.

    My makeup was pretty much what I wear everyday. 

    Face: I decided to go for my Wet n Wild photo focus foundation instead of my everyday bb cream. Sephora concealer in the shade Eclair, Perfect finish HD powder by elf, and super shock cheek in cruel intentions by colourpop. I sealed the look with the Rainforest of the sea mist by Tarte wih I’m trying to use up.

    Lips: Wet n Wild Matte lipstick in the shade Bare it all. 

    And this is me with some of my lovely coworkers after we had cleaned up the room.

    Thank you guys so much for reading, have a great weekend!

    Colourpop Yes Please Palette Look

    Hi everyone!

    We are less than a week away from Christmas. It always feels like it comes and goes so fast, we get so busy getting everything ready that we barely have time to really enjoy it. I have finally finished with all my Christmas shopping, everything has been wrapped and is now sitting under the tree. I’ve been having fun playing with makeup, I find that I enjoy wearing makeup more than usual during the holidays to feel more festive. One of these days, I went for a not so christmassy look but I loved it so I figured I’d share it anyways. 

    I’ve had the Yes Please Palette by Colourpop for a couple of months now but haven’t really used it much since the colours are very bright and summery, but it’s such a beautiful palette and I hate leaving it on the side because the colours are not very christmassy. So I figured what the heck! 

    Eyes: Colourpop Yes Please palette, Lash Princess by Essence, Make me Brow by Essence in the shade 02 browny brows.  

    Face: #instaready super BB cream by Physicians Formula, Soft honey pressed powder by Covergirl, Amazonia clay blush in Paaarty by Tarte. 

    Lips: Lip pencil in shade Satin Mauve by Essence, Liquid lipstick in Beeper by Colourpop. 

    I honestly loved this look and will recreate it again and again. I will play some more with the palette as you can use the more neutral or darker shades or even combine with other eyeshadows for this season so I won’t look crazy wearing super bright colours so close to Christmas haha 

    Check my more appropriate Holiday look.

    Thank you guys so much for reading! Please let me know if you have posted any holiday makeup looks, I’d love to check them out! Have a great week!
