August Favorites/Empties

Hellooo! :)

YAAAY! August is finally coming to an end! I know a lot of you are probably hating me for saying this, but I don't really enjoy the heat all that much. I just can't wait to wear sweaters, and boots, and scarves! 

But yes, right, August favorites! Let's go!

Just a warning, I don't have a lot of things to show this month, everything I am showing is not new, just products I've been trying to use up since I was saving money for my "back-to-school" shopping (if ya know what i mean..haha!)

E M P T I E S:


Revlon Colorstay in Top Coat
Best.Top.Coat.Ever! Well, from what I've tried anyways. It makes any nail polish super shiny and keeps the    polish from chipping for at least a week. Now, this isn't extra empty, but I can't use it anymore because the brush won't reach the product anymore and even if it would it's all gloopy and annoying to work with. I have already bought another one of these and used it this morning..I still love it as much! <3

Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel Cream Moisturizer
Alright, sooo, I have very weird skin..It gets very dry in the winter time, and somewhat oily in the summer time. I purchased this in February and it was perfect for dry skin. As summer came around, I wasn't sure it would still be any good for the oiliness of my skin, but it worked! I love this! I also repurchased it.

L'Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes
Yaaay! This is the first mascara I've actually finished! I usually just keep buying and buying new ones because I get tired of every one I try and just throw out them out. But this is just amazing! I know I did a review on the 24H power mascara and said that that was my favorite, but for some reason I just keep coming back to this one. It's just better. The wand doesn't pick up too much product, but it makes the best difference in the appearance of your lashes! They are seriously like 10x better looking! Js! haha..And of course I repurchased this too (:

F A V O R I T E S:


Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
Alrighty, I bought this in June and hated it! But I tried it again in the beginning of August and I just love it now! It goes on very smoothly and makes your skin look and feel super soft. It has buildable coverage, which I like, and the color actually matches my skin color! (I'm very pale so this is a miracle!).  Also, it's not too pricey, I think I paid $10 (Canadian) for it. Ah-mazing!


L'Oréal Paris Color Infallible Eye Shadow in Iced Latté
The color of this eyeshadow is just soooo amazing! I bought this for myself on my birthday (in May) and I didn't use it all that much back then, but I've worn the hell out of this this past month! It lasts all day and makes your eyes pop! Gorgeous!

Revlon Colorstay Mineral Blush in 030 Roseberry
I just recently got into blush. I never used to wear it because I have naturally flushed cheeks..or at least I used to. I noticed earlier this month that my skin looked dull and noticed it was because the redness of my cheeks has finally decided to leave! Haha, it was annoying because if I wore blush, my cheeks just looked like they had exploded or something..which isn't a good look. So now that my face looks even paler, I've been wearing blush almost everyday. This one is really pretty and isn't too bright or too pale, just perfect. I got it for free with a foundation I had purchased in the beginning of the year and I had never even opened it. So basically it's a new product for me! Haha.


Material Girl Heart Shirt
Okay I'm obsessed with this shirt! No but really, it's just so cute and it goes with everything, even my dark green colored jeggings! (nothing goes with those..well except this! haha). But even better, I only paid $10 for it! And even if it would have been like $40, I still would have gotten it!


Bath And Body Works Fragrance Mist in Country Chic
Omg this smells so cute! Haha, I loved it so much I went and bought the full sized too! Haha, I just like this a bit more because I can bring it in my purse with me. It's just a very girly, floraly scent that brightens up you and everyone around you (:

Kay, that's it for the beauty/fashion favorites, but I do have some other favorites to show you (:


Ooooooh my god!!!! I LOOOVE this movie!! The acting was not the best, but it wasn't bad bad either. What I really liked about this movie is just the whole idea! So cool!! If you haven't watched this and you have netfilx, GO WATCH IT! It's so good! Plus, Justin Timberlake is a bonus! Hahaha, I'm sorry..he's just very good looking okay?


I know I didn't write any song for Mayday Parade, but honestly I like every song they have out! They're very good!
Also, I know that small bump is about pregnancy, and I hate pregnancy (scarred from grade 9 science....hahahaha!!) but it's just a good beat!! 

Alrighty, that's everything for this month, but I promise I'll have like 10x more stuff in the September Favorites! 

Thanks so much for reading/commenting/following! You guys are the bestsss!!  (: *virtual hug*

USA Haul Part 2: Beauty, Accessories And Everything Else (:

Howdy Y'all! 

Hahaha, sorry, I felt like sounding like a hillbilly or something!

Soo, it's time for part two of my big haul!! Like I said in part one, I did not get to go to MAC..which is probably a good thing since I might have spent all my money there! lol

But anyways, I'll start now!

1. Butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in The Black Knight
2. NYX Nude on Nude Palette (I bought this instead of the NAKED palette because I wanted more things at Ulta and only had 60$ left!! haha)
3. NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Boho Chic
4. Forever 21 grey over the knee socks (knee high for my long legs! X) )
5. Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Liner in Black
6. Goody Hair Elastics (LOVE the leopard ones)
7. Victoria's Secret Mints
8. Extra Gum in Rainbow Sherbet (beats my previous fave: juicy fruit!!)
9. Not Your Mother's Frizz Control Hair Cream (i loved it so much the first try i decided to stock up and go back for a second the next day! haha)
10. Maybelline Baby Lips in Grape Vine
11. Zigi Soho Black Studded Loafers  (in looove)
12. Not Your Mother's Way To Grow Shampoo & Conditioner
13. Lush Eau Roma Water Toner 
14. L'Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara
15. Conair 6 1/2" Hair Thinning Sheers (my sister cuts my hair)

I also bought some rings and a headband but I forgot to take pictures of them, but I'm sure you'll see them in future OOTD's and whatnot! 

Alrighty, that took some time to edit [the pictures]! Whew! Haha, but I won't get into detail for these products because I'm sure I'll have reviews for some of these and that most of them will be in my September favorites (as it is too late for them to be in August Favorites).

But anyways, thanks for reading as always,

and have a wonderful day!! ^^

USA Haul Part 1: Clothing

Oh hi there! I'm baaack!! (:

Sooo, I'm back from my family trip to the United States and I blew through my whole budget..and a bit more! Hahah, so I decided to slip this haul into two parts :clothing (1) and beauty/accessories (2). I did not buy everything that was on my wishlist because we ended up going to a different city so there wasn't a MAC or Free People and everything else I wanted..but there was a Lush and a Forever 21 so it's aaaall good! (: haha.

Anyways, let's begin! ^^
*I apologize for the bad quality..I forgot to wipe off the lens ): *

Aaaalrighty, that's all for the clothes, and I'll upload the beauty/accessories and everything else in a few days. I also have another NOTD and will probably have a review on a NYX cream blush.

Thank you so much for reading and following!! It seriously means sooo much to me and everyone who comments always make my days brighter and happier (:

Hello hello!

The other day I was watching this video by MissJenFabulous on youtube, and really liked the feather nail she did. I don't have any nail art pens so this was trickier for me but I managed ok..I think! haha.

So this is how mine turned out. I personally like it because it is very messy, almost abstract. 

I cannot stop staring at my nails! I just love these!!

The colors I've used are Sally Hansen Xtreme... in Mint Sorbet, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Blue-Away, and the feathers are painted with Orly's Naughty (yet again!). I really like this color combination but you could choose any colors you feel like using! I will definitely try this with different colors next time (:

The design takes a bit of practice since it is a bit difficult if you're using a small paintbrush like I did. But I think it would be very easy with a  nail art pen. I just took the smallest paintbrush I have and drew a line, then tapped on little lines on each side. 

But overall, I reeeally like these and will definitely be doing this again in the future. I will probably do another NOTD if I decide to re-create this look in different colors (:

**Little Note: I will be gone from tomorrow (the 19th) to Wednesday (the 22th). I will probably not post anything while I'm there, but I will do a week in photos/vacation in photos when I get back and probably a haul since I know I'm going to shop till I drop! Hahah!

But until Thursday, I hope you all have a wonderful week and don't forget to smile and have fun (: 
(that was a run on sentence! haha)

Howdy everyone and happy Wednesday ^^

So today I've been planning outfits to wear on my family trip to the US and found a little 5 minutes to take pictures of the outfit I am wearing today. I am not doing anything special today, just hanging around the house and washing clothes. But I always like to dress up no matter what so I thought I'd accessorize a little bit more than necessary and do an OOTD for today's post.

This is an overview of my outfit. I apologize for the mirror pictures..I don't have a tripod or anything to hold my camera for me so the mirror comes in very handy for me!

My top is a slight high-low sweater from H&M that used to belong to my sister so you probably can't find it in stores anymore. It's a very pretty navy color even though you can't really tell from the pictures. I tucked the front piece inside my pants so my belt could show.

My necklace is from H&M (again) and I bought this when I was in 8th grade (I am now going in 11th) so I highly doubt this exact one isn't available in store but you can find similar ones pretty much everywhere jewelry is sold! 

The smaller bracelets in the center are from a local store which I don't think I'm allowed to name so I won't. The two others on each ends are from Target. My nails are painted in Orly's "Naughty".

My colored jeggins are from Garage. They are the comfiest pants ever! I don't think they have Garage in the UK but if you're ever in the US or Canada, check out Garage's jeggins! They're so worth it!! 
My shoes are from Costa Blanca and they're very old..sorry! I feel like everything I'm showing is very old and cannot be bought anywhere anymore! haha

I bought this belt at globo shoes over March Break..or spring break, however you call it. I checked online if you could still buy them but didn't find them. It came in a pack of two: this one and a golden glittery one. The thing I like the most about these is that the glitter does not shed or go everywhere.

My hair is second day straight (which means ish wavy). I did a subtle snake braid and attached it with a flower clip from H&M, I did not find the exact same ones I bought but these are pretty similar. Mine have three small roses bunched in one, but the ones I found are just one big rose.

Well anyways, that's it for my first OOTD. I hope you've enjoyed it ^^

Have a nice day (:

Hello beautiful people (:

Did that sound creepy? I hope not, because that was not my intention..haha!

But anyways, I just painted my nails and thought I'd do a Nails Of The Day since this color is gorgeous! 

Please excuse the clutter in the back..I just realized..woopsies!

Orly [mini] Nail Polish in Naughty.

I got this color for Christmas in a set of 5 mini nail polish. All the other colors are very Christmasy, but this one is wearable whenever. I loove this vampy, dark red color, especially for Fall, which is kind of why I decided to paint my nails with it today. It was a rather chilly day in my small town and thought this color was appropriate for the weather. 

Dark nail polish is making a comeback this Fall season, or so I read in magazines. Personally, I am very happy about this continuing trend, since dark nail polish is my favorite! I love the blacks, navys, but especially my dark reds! And this one is just perfect!

I know Orly isn't available everywhere, but I do know a very good dupe for this. N.Y.C (new york color) nail polish in Lincoln Center. If you do not have access to N.Y.C either, I think Essie's Wicked would be close but I`m not 100% sure, as I do not own this color. I've only seen it in stores.

Well, that's all I have to say for today but I will be back tomorrow with My Week In Photos. I`m very exited to post it, I started writing it earlier and I really like it so far. 

But thanks again for reading/following my blog. It really means the world to me <3 !

Hello hello!! Look who is on schedule for the first time (: so proud of myself  ^^  hehe

But anyways, today was a pretty busy day so I didn't have time to do a super long blog post like "what's in my purse"..which I plan on doing shortly! So right now I am watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians while eating mozzarella cheese (my favorite) and writing this blog post.

But anyways, let's begin! (:

Quo by Orly in Turquoise Moonlight

Today, I decided to get out of my lazy rut (I'm not even sure how to write that..sorry) and paint my nails again. I pulled out this lovely from my nail polish box and fell in love with it all over again! This was my go to winter shade, and since I miss winter (I'm sorry, I just really like the cold), this shade seemed absolutely perfect! 

This beautiful blue has green reflects and lots of sparkles! It gives sort of a mermaid-y feel, according to me anyways, but I'm weird, so don't judge me! haha! But this is definitely one of my favorite nail polishes of all time. Now, I don't think the Quo nail polishes are available anywhere else than Shopper's Drug Mart, which I think is only in Canada, so I apologize, but I figure these are available on e-bay or other online stores. 

Also, I would like to thank everyone who followed my blog this past week! I am so happy I am getting noticed and knowing that people actually read me! It's just so cool (: THANK YOUUU!! I love you all and am sending virtual hugs to you ^^ not in a creepy way though!

So, i think that's all I have to say, and I will talk to you guys in the future! ^^

Until then, stay happy ! (:

The Liebster Award

Hello lovelies! (:

So today I had an awfully long day at my super boring job. When I came home from my 9 hour shift, I went to check my e-mails and found out that There's Something About Beauty nominated my blog for the Liebster Award!! I was so so so happy! Day = made! Haha. I am very happy to have been nominated since my blog is really not being noticed all that much. But really, I am so thankful!!

"This little award is all about discovering new blogs and helping those with less than 200 followers to get recognized."

So basically, this is a tag. And I've been tagged/nominated like I said. So here are the rules:

1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.

2. They must also answer the 11 questions the "tagger" has set for them.

3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.

4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and them in their post.

5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.

6. There's no tag backs.

Let's get started (:

11 thing about me:

1. My favorite show of ALL TIMES is The Office (US version)
2. I'm a vegetarian
3. I am 5'10" without shoes on..:s
4. My eyes change color from green to blue in the winter months
5. I'm kind of in love with Michael Phelps..hehe!
6. Although I love fashion and beauty, I am super nerdy!
7. I tend to laugh at chick flicks (no offense)
8. Autumn is my favorite season EVER.
9. I eat too much cheese..brb while I go eat cheese! haha
10. I am a figure skater..although it's been cancelled this year ):
11. I really really really want a pet micro pig!!

Now here are the questions I've been asked (: 

1. Why did you start blogging?
I have always wanted to start a blog but never did because I was too lazy. But the other day, I felt inspired and so Myrberry was born! teehee

2. When did you start using makeup?
I started using mascara when I was 13 and then at 14 I really started getting into the whole shabang and have been addicted ever since.

3. What is your most prized beauty possession?
Does perfume count? If so my Ralph Lauren Romance fragrance. In not, my Lancôme Rouge In Love lipstick in Rose Thé.

4. Who is your favorite youtuber/blogger?
Definitely Becca from "VousSontBeauEtBelle" on youtube, but also HauteBrilliance, ICallItAmbrosia, SprinkleOfGlitter, Amarixe, DulceCandy, and MissGlamorazzi (all youtubers).

5. If you could use only 1 beauty product, what would it be?
Without a doubt L'Oréal Vlouminous Million Lashes mascara. No other product gives me the confidence this mascara gives me!

6. What is your favorite high end brand?
(Christan) Dior..even though I don't own any of their products..yet!

7. What is your favorite drugstore/highstreet brand?
L'Oréal for sure!

8. What is your favorite nail polish color?
I like reds, but to be specific, I really like Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in 390 Red Carpet. It is the most perfect red color with shimmer in it. I'm in love with it and have gone through a whole bottle and have made my way through half of my new one already!

9. What is your favorite highstreet shop to shop in?
I hope this means what is my favorite pharmacy/drugstore to shop in (i'm canadian). If so, I like Lawton drugs and Wal-mart (even if walmart isn't a pharmacy)

10. Are you a high heels girl? Or a flats type of girl?
Oh heels..I wish! I can walk in them and everything, but like I said, I am 5'10'", so I don't have the confidence to wear them in public. So definitely a flats type of girl (:
