I know you’re probably seeing this a lot- but is it really 2015? I just broke out a crisp new planner & it really hit home! For the past few years, I’ve really enjoyed sharing my yearly favorites in various categories. This year you’ll be seeing quite a few & some will also have video components! To kick it off I had to start with polish- of course! So let’s take a look back at my favorite shades from 2014 by season- & then share yours with me below! [Read more…]
November was a pretty exciting month for me I must admit. We found out we finally get to move onto our next base- & it was one we wanted! I’m prepping to travel to California in January for both IMATS & quality family time. It has been bitterly cold but lacking snow- less work for us! I’ve also come upon some awesome new products, some older favorites, & just lots of beauty finds all around.
I’m a big fan of changing up my look which can be seen all over the blog. I tend to bounce from rainbow eyes to neutral & back again. Everything is pretty so why not give it a shot right? With the recent 20% off beauty sales & such I’ve also picked up some new items. & there are way more I haven’t even shared on the blog yet- so that is something to look forward to! Besides the lip colors, I wouldn’t say these items scream fall which is fine with me. [Read more…]
This #A2ZNails weekly series has been so fun so far. I love that you guys love it- repetitive? Yes but factual. After last week & my B is for Bold nail art I was looking for something a bit more fall or even winter. The theme this month is Copy Cat so there were tons of options here…but I decided to go with this idea that I pinned awhile ago & just loved. (ps if you don’t follow me on Pinterest you’re missing out- my nail obsession isn’t just restricted to my blog!)
So basically I kind of took her fabulous idea & made it dark, vampy, matte (until I added top coat…), & of course multi-colored because I have no self-control. I personally love it.
So my base color is Zoya Dovima which was lovely. You let it dry completely & then add your striping tape kind of randomly focusing at the tips. I then sponged on each colorful shade focusing again on my tips. I think the outcome is so easy & so beautiful. Obviously her design is way more awesome-ly in your face color-wise but this just feels so fall! My pointer finger (red) is Zoya Posh, middle (purple) is Zoya Savita, ring finger (green) is Zoya Veruschka, & the pink looking color on my pinkie is Zoya Harlow.
In the end I decided to add a topcoat because…shiny! Plus it makes those shimmers really flash. Please ignore the obvious pet hair on my pointer. #that’smylife In the end I really love the design & I barely had to think about it- just pretty much came together!
So what design would you copycat? Next week’s design will be D for Dark, any ideas? I’m kind of at a lost- I need some inspiration! Remember to check everyone else out below!
Have you ever picked up a palette & immediately thought of a certain season? The Smashbox Cherry Smoke Photo Op Eyeshadow Palette is limited edition for Fall 2014 which is just so fitting- this palette is so stunningly autumn. I wish I had reviewed it earlier since it is sold out at a lot of retailers- but I will list some it is still available at below. This palette is everything & I included my favorite eyeshadow look along with it! Keep reading to see swatches, my thoughts, & a truly easy fall look. [Read more…]
Are you guys over the pumpkin craze yet? I’m not! I may not be a PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte) girl but I do love actual pumpkin. I’m not big on cinnamon or even strong pumpkin spice so when my hubby surprised me with the Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Body Butter after he ran in for some groceries I was thrilled! Check it out!

Halloween is coming!!! I’m so excited. With the new blog I haven’t had much time to do many Halloween posts (which are some of my favorites so booo) but I did want to show you guys these new themed & limited edition balms I picked up! I reviewed the original balms that look like EOS eggs here from Walgreens. We still really enjoy them so when I saw new flavors/scents we jumped on them- & we have totally mixed thoughts! Keep reading to check them out! [Read more…]
