Welcome to another Manic Monday! We beat a new record last week for participation, and so first and foremost, I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all you newbies as well as you regulars!
In the spirt of Manic Monday and my lovely co-host's (On the Daily Express) favorite store, I don't feel as guilty wearing head to almost toe Express. Especially when said outfit consists of these polka dot skinnies and perfect spring white top. You'll recognize the flats from my shoe wishlist post last week. I ordered them shortly after writing that post, go figure, but I was really happy with them when they arrived! To be honest, this is my only pair of Uggs I own. I never jumped on the Ugg boot bandwagon, so for now, I'm happy with my little striped flats bandwagon. The bag, well, I accidentally bought it over the weekend which added to my apparent Marc by Marc Jacobs bag addiction.

Before I go - I wanted to give quick reviews of some items in my first ever Ipsy Glam Bag! Not only is it my first Glam Bag, but it's my first ever subscription type package ever. I was more excited that a person probably should have been to open everything!
Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick "Get Ready": I haven't worn lipstick in YEARS. Easily since high school. My lips are dry and lipstick just never lasted as well as gloss on me. I was still excited to try this one, especially since it's not something I would have bought myself. I've been into bold lip color lately, so it was refreshing to switch to this, which was the perfect pink for my complexion. The formula was very light and nice - I did apply a coat of Carmex before the lipstick, and overall, I'm very happy with the results. This will definitely remain in my ever evolving and quickly growing collection of lip color!
Nicole by OPI Roughles in "On What Grounds": I love that a top coat is not necessary for this - anything that saves me time, saves my life. The pastel color pop is perfect for spring, and the texture hides imperfection, and well, is just a lot of fun! I'm definitely going to be looking at more textured polishes in the future, as this was my first time trying!
