Briddy Code | Haters and Fake Friends




Hello loves and welcome to a new segment that I like to call Briddy Code! I actually got the idea from someone who said that this video was like the TV show on MTV, Girl Code, which I love! So after watching my video over again, I thought that this would be perfect and thought that it would be fun to keep doing videos/blog posts like this! So feel free to let me know on here, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, wherever! ;) Just get a hold of me and let me know what you would like to hear my thoughts on.



"Don't let the haters stop you from doing your thang." - Kevin Gnapoor, Mean Girls
Yes, I just used a quote from Mean Girls on a totally serious note :) That movie can seriously change someone's life. It is so true though, you should never let haters get to you. I talk about this in the video, but haters are seriously your biggest fans. They are the ones who spend all day talking about you, thinking about you, waiting to see your every move (so they can talk about you more). So think about it.. if you did that to someone, took so much time thinking about them and caring about them, yet they never gave you a second glance.. you would hate them too, right?! But that's exactly why you shouldn't respond to them? If they see that they have gotten a rise out of you, they will just continue to do it. It gives them satisfaction. Don't give them satisfaction! Let them keep sipping on that Haterade, you know that they really love you anyways ;)



"Fake friends are like shadows.. They follow you in the sun, but leave your side when it gets dark."
Don't let fake friends fool you. Some of them can seem like the nicest people ever! I've had this happen to me so many times, I'm like a pro at spotting them now. The worst is when it happens to someone that you know and no matter how much you tell them, they will always have to find out for themselves. Just do yourself a favor and re-evaluate your circle of friends. Look at why each person is wanting to be your friend. Is it because you truly get along and have a great time together? Or is it because they have something to gain by being around you? Social circle, nice things, party invitations, good grades, a boyfriend? Yeah, if they only want to be around you when it benefits them, they are probably being a fake friend. Confront them, kick them to the curb, do what you will, just check who you keep closest to you!

Well, I hope you enjoyed the first ever Briddy Code and be sure to watch the video if you haven't yet. I love you all so much and you are the reason why I do this. I love having someone to talk to like you guys <3 br="">

Rihanna x MAC Collaboration, Round 2!



So, if you are like me, you are counting down the days until the release of the RiRi Hearts MAC collection. I was lucky enough to get one (okay, two) of RiRi Woo when it was released. The demand was CRAZY! Never have I sat in an online waiting room for a lipstick, but hey, I got it and it was more than worth it. For those of you who missed it (it sold out in a matter of hours), it will be released again along with the rest of this collection on June 18. YES, three days away!



Along with RiRi Woo (pictured above, a matte cool red), two other lipsticks will be released. One is RiRi Boy (pictured below, which is a matte vivid lavender). I have yet to decide whether I will try to get all three lipsticks or just another RiRi Woo and one other. I don't think I currently own anything like RiRi Boy, so it could likely be a new favorite. All of these lipsticks are also a retro matte finish, which has easily become an obsession of mine!



The third lipstick, Heaux (pictured below, described as a matte berry), is another amazing color. I think this could easily be a summer staple. I have heard that it will be similar to MAC Rebel, but I don't have that color, so that won't really matter to me. These colors are all gorgeous, so I might just have to splurge and get the whole collection!



Next is a product that I have been dying to get my hands on since I first found the picture, which is Hibiscus Kiss! Pictured below, this powder blush duo looks incredible! A cool coral blush with a matte neutral bronze, this is a compact that I will definitely want to be carrying with me all summer! I used my NARS Laguna/Orgasm duo religiously, so this looks like my newest BFF!



Finally, the last product in the collection is Barbados Girl (pictured below). At first, I wasn't too worried about picking up these lustre drops, but now I am thinking otherwise. Described as a rose gold bronzer, these drops look gorgeous and I am a grl that is big on shimmer.. and I love rose gold! This collection has got my attention and if the rest of the products are anything like RiRi Woo, I know that this collection will not disappoint!



So, what are your thoughts? Any products that are must-haves? Which products will you be passing on? I am still on the fence! I want them all, but we aren't shopping at the dollar store here! Plus, my luck, another amazing collection will come out a week later and I'll be broke! Until next time, my loves <3 br="">
