Purple Week, Day 5

So, I'm in a group on Facebook and it has been decided that we do something purple every day for a week. This is my day 5.
Kleancolor Metallic Purple with Holo Chrome over the top.
I absolutely LOVE Holo Chrome. I made an order specifically to get this color. It goes over EVERYTHING and looks fabulous!!!

Seriously.....look at all that sparkle!!!!! It's amazing, and I'm in love!

Pizza Casserole

This recipe is simply amazing. It's like awesome set up camp in my mouth and is having a party. The whole family loves it, and that really says something, when everyone can agree on something being good.
This recipe is so versatile too. You can change things around to suit your needs, and experiment with different things. I'll add some suggestions of what I have done with it at the bottom.

1.5 lbs hamburger
1 bag egg noodles
1 large jar spaghetti sauce
3 cups mozzarella cheese
1 bag pepperoni
You'll also need a 9x13 baking dish

Preheat the oven to 350.
Brown the hamburger. Cook noodles according to package directions.
Spread a thin layer of sauce on the bottom of the baking dish. Then layer in this order::

Half the noodles
Half the hamburger
Half the sauce
Rest of noodles
Half the cheese
Rest of hamburger
Rest of sauce
Rest of cheese

Cover it all with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for 15 more.
Make sure you let it set for about 10 minutes. I found out the hard way that the sauce needs to thicken up before you can eat it.

*Things I have done to tweak it*
When browning the hamburger, I add in some garlic powder, onion powder and italian seasoning.
Substitute hamburger for sausage.
Ricotta cheese along with the mozzarella.
Using pizza sauce as well as spaghetti sauce.

Oh so yummy in my tummy!!

It'll probably look a little something like this. I only had half a package of pepperoni, but that doesn't make it any less yummy!!

Mermaid nails!!

A Facebook group I'm in does weekly "challenges" for makeup looks and nails..and this weeks nail challenge is mermaids!

Bored at work, and I decided to go ahead and try it out... Unfortunately, I don't really like my mermaid nails, and will probably end up re-doing them sometime this week.

I used Kleancolor 'Mermaid' and 'Disco Ball' with a coat of Seche Vite over it all.


Chinovi Cosmetics!!

I wanna tell you about Chinovi Cosmetics. I bought a few of her samples when she officially launched her shop, and I am not disappointed. I'm actually making another order for her soon! 
Chinovi has a lot of great color choices, and clearly states on all her products if it is not vegan or not lip safe. I know a lot of people use only vegan products, so it's a great thing to put right on the packaging for everyone. You can choose samples either in baggies or clamshells, or full sizes with or without sifters. prices range from $1 to $5, depending on what you order.
I ordered the "Grand Opening" collection and a few other samples, and Vanessa sent an extra freebie and some candy along with it. My girls devoured the candy for

I opened my package and found all of this neatly placed in a bright yellow paper bag. Very awesome.

I was kind of rushed when I did this, so the swatches are all on my hand, and I could only get one good pic. Everything is swatched over Tick:Tock Cosmetics Infinity Base in Milky Way. 

These colors are all awesome. My favorites are Divine, Goddess, Welcome, Grand Opening and Funhouse. Even though a couple of them are not "my" colors, I still love them. Everything is super pigmented, with just the right amount of shimmer that my camera refused to catch for you. =(
I really can not wait until I am able to make another purchase!!
