Hey guys!
I figured i'd post a quick update since i haven't made a post in a while and I have nothing in particular to write about. Unfortunately, I still haven't found my Fresh perfume that i lost (pretty pissed about this still) and am going to have to purchase a new one if it doesn't show up soon because I love it that much.

As you may have noticed (or probably not since i have no followers and no one reads this, maybe someday) I changed my blog name to Little Red. This is a name that my boyfriend started calling me as a joke after i started dying my hair with henna. My hair is naturally curly and has a red tone as it is, but seeing as i'd never dyed my hair before henna, i decided i wanted a change. I have naturally curly hair and henna is not only a natural hair dye, but it is also conditioning. It stains your hair red and is a permanent dye and will not wash out or fade.

I did a henna dye over night last night with a new type of henna called Jamila and am waiting to see how it turns out since it takes 3-5 days to completely oxidize to the true color (not such a great thing for super impatient people like me). But anyways, if you wanna know more about how to use henna to dye your hair or things along that line just let me know.

I'm now just hanging around at my house waiting for my boyfriend to wake up, mind you it's 6pm here and he's still sleeping. He's messed up his sleeping schedule to say the least. But, that's about all i have to say. Talk to you soon!

I've misplaced my little perfume rollerball by fresh that i featured in my birthday haul. It was my favorite scent ever and I've been searching for it relentlessly for the past couple days and no luck. I've literally checked all over my house and in my car and at my boyfriend's house and in his car. I have no idea where it can be and I'm so upset!
Wish me luck finding it :/

My First Ever Birchbox!

Hey guys!
Okay so today I got some lunch at Red Lobster with some of my family members and when I got home my first ever Birchbox was waiting for me. I was having a really rough day so I was happy to see this.

Birchbox is a monthly subscription service and for ten dollars a month you receive 4-6 beauty samples! You can check it out here.

So I'll show you guys what came in my box for the month of June.

1. beautyblender blendercleanser- I do not have a beautyblender, but this product can be used to clean any makeup brushes or sponges. I have not tried this yet.
2. Comodynes Self-Tanning Intensive- These are little self tanning towelettes. I've never used a self tanning product before, but i will definitely be trying these out.
3. Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect- A leave in hair product that detangles and defrizzes. I have naturally curly hair so I'm excited for this one although it doesn't have the best smell.
4. theBalm Staniac- The color is called Beauty Queen and it's a lip and cheek stain. I used this today as soon as I got it on both my lips and cheeks. It didn't seem to last very long on my lips, but i applied it to my cheeks around 3pm today and it's now 11pm and it's still there. Definitely loving this product as a cheek stain.
5. tili Bag- I now realize that I didn't really make this visible in the pictures, but it's the little pink bag peeking out from under the other products. It's cute, but essentially just a printed zip-lock bag.
6. John Varvatos- A men's cologne. It was nice having an extra in their that I could pass on to my boyfriend.

So that's my June Birchbox! In July Birchbox is teaming up with Glamour so I'm super excited to see what samples they'll have next month.

Photo Issues

I just wanted to add that blogger is being a real pain with letting me upload a profile photo or any type of photo of myself on my page. If anyone has also had trouble with this and has tips for me let me know! but for now I'll insert a picture of myself here that was taken today so ya'll can see my face.

Yes, this is instagramed. I'm an instagrammer. @callie_curtin
follow me if you'd like, i'd love to have you.

First Post- Birthday Haul!

Hello Everyone!
If anyone is there. This is my first blog post so it's highly likely that no one's reading this and I'm just typing to myself which is fine with me. I decided to start this blog and may also start making youtube videos, but I'm not positive about that yet. I have a lot of things to work out with my camera equipment and such.

Anyways, My name is Callie and I'm 20 years old if anyone is hypothetically reading this :)

For my first post I decided to do a little birthday haul since my birthday was about a week ago now so let's jump in.

From my wonderful boyfriend, I got two perfumes that I have been really wanting:
He got me this Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy gift set from Sephora. It's amazing and i love this scent. It includes the eau de parfum, shower gel, and body lotion. Plus, the packaging is super adorable.

He also got me this cute little rollerball perfume called Sugar Lychee by Fresh. We have both been loving the Fresh fragrances and his current fragrance is Cannibas Santal by Fresh. It's a unisex sent, but quite manly and musky. Both have great lasting power and smell awesome. Sugar Lychee reminds me a bit of Lemon Pledge....yes, what you use for dusting...which may not sound too appealing, but I guess you'll just have to smell it for yourselves :)

Over the weekend me and my mom went to the mall to do some birthday shopping.

See those amazing flats? Yes! I have been wanting studded flats for so long. I walked into ALDO and fell in love with those babies so quick I HAD to have them. The little studded bag/wristlet and the denim shirt are both from urbanoutfitters, and the high waisted shorts are from Heritage.

Well, now I'm gonna be checking out some blogs, gathering some tips, and subscribing to other people. If you like what you've seen here so far go right ahead and subscribe! I plan to be keeping up with this and posting often.
