Morphe & Jaclyn Hill

I did it. I finally caved. Well at least that is how I felt when I finally bought the Morphe and Jaclyn Hill palette. I have to say, I’m a little sad that it took me so long to buy this palette.  Advertisements

Scents of Fall

One of the reasons I love fall is because everything just seems cozy. Cozy sweaters. Curled up on the sofa in a blanket watching a heartwarming movie. Staying in bed on cold mornings. Baking savory treats. You see where I’m going here. Part of that cozy feeling is filling my house with warm and inviting…

September Favorites

Happy October! Its the start of one of my favorite months. While the official start of fall may be in September, it doesn’t really feel like it until October. Plus I feel like October is the kick off to all the fun holidays to come – Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hanukkah. But before I get…

Coffee Inspired

I am a coffee addict. I have a cup of coffee everyday. I tried to give it up once and lasted a whole week. I love the act of making coffee and drinking it throughout the morning. In honor of National Coffee Day (yup another weird made up holiday) I give you this coffee inspired…

Just Another Saturday | Fashion

Cold weather is my favorite. I love Winter. Its a season that has the best memories for me. The times spent with friends and family. The holidays. The food. The chilly mornings that deserve a cup of hot chocolate and a blanket. The clothes. Fashion-wise I love sweaters and scarves and boots and dresses with…

Green Smoke | Tutorial

I LOVE a smoky eye during the Fall and Winter months. I also love to do a smoky eye with colors that are not black or grey. I love wearing green shadow {even though some might bash wearing green shadow because my eyes are green}. This look also highlights how to use palettes all year…

Zombie Cupcakes | Baking

I had a Halloween/Fall potluck at work recently and I decided to try and get a bit creative. I got inspired for this by a Pinterest picture of human brain cupcakes. Halloween is always a great time to get creative, freaky, and gross when it comes to baking.

Fun Night Out | Get Ready With Me

A couple weekends ago some friends and I went out to celebrate a birthday. Now I am the self proclaimed “Grandma” of the group. I am perfectly content to stay home, be comfortable, and sit at home and watch Netflix. We hit up a couple local bars and had a great time. I took some…

Mini Haul | Sephora

I used to be a Sephora Junkie. I was a drugstore makeup snob. I will admit it. But over the last year I really fell in love with drugstore makeup. {And I think drugstore makeup really stepped up their game} But it had been awhile since I had been to Sephora and I was in…

Colourpop Fall Edit

Colourpop is hands down one of my favorite brands. They are affordable, they have unique colors, and I haven’t found a product I don’t like. Last week they released the last set of their Fall Edit. In total they released three different sets: Plum, Terracotta, and Dusty Rose.
