Hey there!

Hey guys, I have been severely MIA lately. I've been doing a lot of thinking lately and I want to revamp the whole blog... change the name and everything. I'm just kind of wanting to move away from Glitterocity and write more about my life stuff maybe relating to school and of course beauty. I'm just ready for a change.

My New Favorite BB Cream!

Hey guys! I hope you have all been well and I hope that all of my east coast readers stayed safe during hurricane Sandy! I have been pretty busy with classes and stuff, so I can't wait until this semester is over so I can just relax with my family and enjoy the holidays. I did something SUPER exciting today guys... I GOT A NEW PUPPY! She's a little micro mini chihuahua and is honestly the tiniest thing I have ever seen! I'm thinking of naming her Lola. Mrs. Giove recommended the name and I think it might fit her perfectly. I have a picture on my instagram (cathsquillace). So, if you guys want to take a look and give me name suggestions that would be greatly appreciated.

Anyway, moving on to the point of this post. Recently, Sephora sent me all 4 of the Dr. Jart BB Creams. I was so insanely excited to try them because the only BB Cream I ever used was the Garnier one from the drug store. I use the BB cream as sort of a base for my powder foundation. I by no means have nice or perfect skin so I need a lot of coverage. Let me just tell you guys, I was NOT disappointed. The Dr. Jart BB Creams are amazing. My personal favorite is the blue one, but they are all phenomenal. I will definitely purchase another tube when I run out because all 4 kinds are literally amazing.

As you guys can tell, sometimes I experience a little bit of writers block. Please, please, please (I can't say it enough) send me your recommendations on blog posts. I want to post what you guys want to read about so please let me know what you want to see! Even if it's not makeup related just let me know and I will try my best to fulfill your blog needs :) Sorry this post was short. I'll be brainstorming ideas for more posts soon since I will be home a lot with the new puppy. Stay safe & keep warm!

Peace, Love, & Glitter

North Jersey Adventures

Hey guys! Right now I am sitting on my couch with my dogs eating pumpkin seeds (that my little sis made!) and watching Law & Order: SVU. It's starting to get chilly over here in Jersey and today it was super rainy and gloomy so after my classes I just sat on the couch with a blanket and haven't moved since. Moving on.... the past few weekends have been pretty hectic. So, I thought I'd fill you guys in on what I've been doing :)

OK Magazine :)
About two weeks ago I went to Alexa's baby shower! If you are a Jerseylicious/Glam Fairy fan you probably know that Alexa is expecting a baby girl in November. Let me just tell you guys, this was the most beautiful baby shower that I have ever been to. There was a candy bar (with personalized bags that you could fill up and take home!), customized games, and delicious food! Not to mention the ambiance in the room was perfect and very relaxing. I also got to meet Alexa's BFF Jon Kutlu. We talk on twitter all the time so it was so cool to finally meet him! It was absolutely amazing and I will seriously remember it for the rest of my life. Little McKayla is going to be the glammiest baby ever and I can't wait until she arrives so I can meet her! OK Magazine even covered the baby shower and I was shocked to see that I was included in the picture they put in the magazine! If you want to see more pictures from the baby shower, you can see them on my Instagram (cathsquillace).

Last weekend, I went to Verona to film as an extra for Jerseylicious at Anthony Robert Salon. It was a really cool experience and i'm really glad that I did it. The salon is BEAUTIFUL and I finally got to meet the gorgeous Mrs. Giove. She is literally one of the sweetest people I have ever met! Jackie did my hair and she was super nice. I'm not even sure if you'll be able to see me but when I find out what episode I filmed for I will definitely let you guys know! If you live in the area and are interested in filming for Jerseylicious, you can search Jerseyreality Showcasting on Facebook to see if there are any casting opportunities.

Finally..... A few days ago I went to the Glam Fairy Premiere Party! It was located at Teak on the Hudson and it was so much fun and the location was absolutely stunning. Almost all of the cast members of Glam Fairy were there as well as some of the Jerseylicious cast members. There were SO many people there! It was kind of overwhelming, but me and my best friend had a great time. Again, if you want to see more pictures from the event you can go to my instagram page, or look at my pictures on twitter (cathsquillace).

That's it for now guys, I hope your lives have been filled with exciting and happy things lately. Remember to book me as your makeup artist if you live in New Jersey or surrounding areas for any event. My e-mail is Have an amazing rest of the week and I will talk to you guys soon!

Peace, Love, & Glitter

New Hair Color! :)

Hey guys, I didn't even realize that while I wasn't typing for awhile I got my hair done. I am a natural brunette, but I decided to finally make the jump to..... red hair! Demi Lovato is my hair idol, so the color was inspired by her dark red hair that she was sporting a couple of months ago. One of my best friends (who is a hair genius!) dyed it for me and I could not be happier with it. It is the perfect color for me and I always get compliments on it. If you live in the South Jersey area and are looking for an amazing hair colorist, please let me know and I can give you my friend's information because she is truly amazing!

Let me know what you guys think! I am absolutely obsessed with it and I will definitely be keeping this color for awhile. As always, let me know what kind of posts you would like to see. Unfortunately, I am not a mind reader so I don't know what posts you want to see unless you tell me ;) Thank you so much for reading, and I can't wait to share more posts with you guys. Have a great weekend!

Peace, Love, & Glitter

Back from my hiatus & blk meet and greet!

Hi beauties, I am so sorry that I have been gone for so long. There was a death in the family, I have been working a ton, and I started classes again.  I am only taking two classes this semester so I can work on finding a new job and focus more on my makeup business. I decided to take an Intro. to Business class so I can get some tips about running my own business. Glam Academy gave me TONS of insight in running a business, but you can never have enough information! I am also taking an Abnormal Psych. class, because the human mind fascinates me. I am hoping to start YouTube videos soon because I want to share tutorials with you guys. Please, please let me know what you would like to see me write about on here. Like I said before, I love anything beauty or makeup related so I want to write about things YOU all want to see. I have been trying new products recently so I will probably post a collective haul/review post this week. I am also considering starting an instagram account for makeup looks and stuff, so let me know if you would be interested in that.

Okay, so as a little welcome back post I want to share something really fun that I just did! The other day my friend Kristen and I went to Wegman's for a blk water tasting/meet and greet. If you aren't familiar with blk, it is a water company that combines fulvic acid with the water which actually makes it black in color. Not only is it good for you, it tastes just like normal water and is insanely cool! The Manzos and Lauritas from The Real Housewives of New Jersey are involved with blk, so they went to Wegman's in Cherry Hill for a meet and greet. I have been a huge RHONJ fan since season one, so I was so excited to finally meet the people that I watch on TV every week. At the meet and greet were Albie Manzo and Chris Manzo, their mom Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, and her husband Chris Laurita. There were a lot of people there to meet them, so we ended up waiting in line for about an hour and a half which wasn't too bad. This one lady even told me that I looked like Caroline's daughter Lauren. People have told me that before, but it was cool to be told by another fan of the show.

When we finally got to the table where they were all sitting, they all signed our bottles and were talking to us. Every single one of them was so incredibly nice. They thanked people for coming, when really they were the ones that should have been thanked. They took multiple pictures with everyone (which is rare) and they were just all so welcoming. It was such a great experience and I just wish I could relive it over and over. I will definitely be attending another meet and greet if they are ever in the area again. If you ever see that they are in your area, I would definitely recommend going and meeting them if you are a fan because I had such a great time. I definitely want to buy endless cases of blk and a blk t-shirt! If you would like to check out the blk website, purchase blk, or a blk t-shirt make sure to click here.

Thank you so much to the Manzos and the Lauritas for making this experience so amazing and being so nice to every single person. I wish you all the success in the world!

As always, e-mail me at if you have any questions. I hope you all have a great week and I will be posting in a few days!

Peace, Love, & Glitter
