The other week I ordered this gorgeous scarf that I have been swooning over for months now from Three Bird Nest! The Cornelia Infinity Scarf! It finally arrived and I couldn’t be happier! I absolutely LOVE it! It’s light, not too thick, and beautiful colors/pattern! She’s got some awesome pieces on her Etsy, scarves, head bands, leg warmers etc. Adorable!!! I’m also totally loving the Lavender Floral Chiffon Headband!
Eyeliner is pretty amazing, it creates a statement, makes your lashes look fuller and just has this way of creating drama! I love jet black eyeliner, and don’t want it to smudge! I personally prefer liquid liner, but let’s face it….I don’t have the steadiest of hands. These two eyeliners are my go-to! Continue reading
1. loving this adorable Oatmeal South West Cardigan by Windsor! The whole tribal print/Aztec prints are in and I am loving it! This is friendly on the budget but still encompasses that style. I love the neutral colors and the open flowy front. You bet I am crushing on this and wanting it in my wardrobe!! (I happen to LOVE sweaters!) Continue reading
So, for those of you who know me this will come as no surprise….I absolutely LOVE seasons….especially fall and winter. I love the changes in the air, the environment, people’s attitudes, the foods, music, decor…everything. I particularly have a love for traditions and seasonal activities. Growing up, my family created lots of great traditions and seasonal things. For example, ever since I was three, on our birthdays we got to pick our breakfast menu and get breakfast in bed! We always play Christmas music and decorate the day after Thanksgiving, we always open a present of new pajamas on Christmas eve, and I always make gingerbread cookies. We just had some wonderful things that we did every season every year. As I get older, I find that I tend to cling to these traditions, maybe because they remind me of childhood, or simply because I love them. Either way, I love creating memories and embracing the changing seasons. One of my favorites for fall….is going to the pumpkin patch! Continue reading
Thought I would share with you all some of my favorite albums to listen to during the work week as I am plugging away at designing. I sometimes forget that I can put my headphones in and instead accidentally sit in silence. As soon as I remember, I get excited, open up my Pandora and end up tapping my foot away to some awesome tunes. So here are some albums I recommend when you are being creative or just in general!
I have this dream- a dream that makes my heart bleed, brings tears to my eyes, and makes me want to jump up and do everything I can to reach it. Everything within me is screaming at me to reach this goal, and to give everything I can to make it happen. I don’t know if you have something that you are just so passionate about that you cant help but feel as though your heart bleeds for it? It took me quite a while, a long journey, and lots of experimental pieces to reach the point where I finally realized what it is I can not stand to live without. I never set out to have this passion, nor did I pick this path for myself. I never dreamed I would decide or discover to spend my life pursuing this goal, in fact it is just as a surprise to me now as it would have been years ago. Yet, at the same time, it is not a surprise at all. The pieces all just naturally came together and I had no idea until later…much later. Continue reading
I don’t know about you, but it always seems to me that people, including myself, are afraid to make an apartment a home because it is often not a permanent residence. It seems scary and pointless to do things like paint, decorate, and really make the space livable and comfortable because you’re just going to have to paint it all back once you leave and who knows if everything will look good somewhere else! Well, stop fearing and start doing! My fiance just recently moved into a new apartment with his roommate, and it will be the home we live in once we are married. So, naturally, since currently just two bachelors reside in the space, it lacks furniture, personality, livability and comfort. It consisted of computers, desks, beds, and……food :) So, I set out to make it a HOME. Continue reading
I have over processed and extremely damaged hair. I have been working on getting it back to hydrated, beautiful locks….and it’s taking a while! One of the products I recently purchased to hydrate and nourish my hair is the Orofluido Elixir. I purchased the hair oil from Birchbox using some points I had saved up. The product arrived really quickly, and I eagerly started using it! Now, it is time to let you all know what I think about it! Continue reading
This month’s Birchbox was featuring everything from the hit show Gossip Girl! I was really excited to receive my box- I have always loved the show and not just because of its shocking drama…but because of its beautiful fashion and glamour. I have a big passion for fashion ;) and this show takes place in the heart of the fashion capital of our nation! Birchbox partnered with the key individuals from the GG beauty department to bring everyone some fantastic products! Let’s take a look into my May Gossip Girl inspired box! Continue reading
I bought the Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer a few months ago, I had heard some good things about it and thought I would try it out! This product goes on underneath your foundation to even out your skin, create a luminous appearance, and give a natural dewey look. I had heard about it on a blog I follow, Chisel Beauty, and wanted to see what it was like. I have always been a fan or the dewey look, it gives that subtle glow without being too shimmery, so I was intrigued to find out if this worked or not. I bought it at my local drug store for around $12, which seemed a bit steep for what it is…but I really wanted to try it. Continue reading
