Depotting another UDPP

even though my sister saw how much udpp i got when i depotted my packaging she didnt want to do the same to hers. So while i was on vacation i spend a few days at her place and i decided to depot her udpp and to her amazement i got a lot of product.. she thought she would have had a little bit of product...but here's what she had instead...

products used for the depotting are
  • knife
  • spatula [or u can used the want to transfer the product]
  • jar/s with lid/s

if anyone has any questions feel free to msg me or leave a comment, and i do suggest that if you have the genie bottle of udpp that you depot it.. its way easier to use from the jar...

ELF Haul

So I have another Elf haul. I was pretty anxious for this simply because of the studio line products I got... In this haul i got 3 eyeshadow brushes, 2 blending brushes, 2 plumping lip glaze in mocha ice and plum pout [i've never tried this, so i'll do a review after i've tried it] super glossy lip shine spf 15 in mauve luxe, studio complexion brush and studio golden bronzer [super duper excited to try.. ]

here are pics of what i got...

Tonight i'll be posting quite a bit.. took out pics of hauls i got over my vacation [back one week now, so the pics are like almost 2-3 weeks old... ] and yes it'll be quite a bit of hauls.. simply because i've saved up for quite a bit of things for july month end [with mac stuff] but i also got things for friends, like the elf eyeshadow brushes in this haul...

Encouragement for the day...

I am subscribed to receive inspirational notes from Joel and Victoria Osteen. I got this message today and I thought I'll share it with really touched me because I was going through some fear issues.. hope it can be a blessing to you.

Choose Faith Instead of Fear

TODAY'S SCRIPTURE"This is my command–be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go"(Joshua 1:9, NLT).

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and VictoriaDid you know that fear works just like faith but in the opposite direction? In the same way that faith opens the door for God to work in our lives; fear opens the door for the enemy to work in our lives.The Bible says that fear has torment. Fear has no mercy. If you act on fear instead of acting on faith, it will keep you depressed, miserable and lonely. And so many people today are missing out on God's joy, peace, and victory because they keep giving in to fear. They feed fear by what they watch on TV or at the movies. Don't let that be you! Romans tells us that faith comes by hearing the Word of God. The more you fill your heart and mind with God's Word, the stronger you will be to stand against the powers of darkness. Choose faith instead of fear by choosing God's Word.Remember, the power that is in you is greater than the power of fear. When thoughts come that say, "You're not able", choose faith by saying, "I can do all things through Christ!" Choose faith today so you can overcome fear and live in the freedom God has in store for you!
