NYE Sparkle

HAPPY NEW YEAR BABES!

I am so ready for a new year, this year is going to bring a lot of changes with graduating and leaving Idaho and I am so excited to see what 2017 brings for us! I have some goals that I want to work on and will be sharing them a little later once I get a chance to write them down. 2017 here we come! Continue reading “NYE Sparkle”

Mauve

Happy Monday! Less than a week until Christmas! I have to admit that Christmas came for Houston and I a little early this year…we did a mini Christmas with just us yesterday before we make the drive to Sacramento to spend some time with our families. I really just could not wait any longer because I knew what was on my Christmas list and was just so eager to get it! It was a fun day, and even better now that we have a small break in-between semesters!  Continue reading “Mauve”

Dark Days

Winter is here and we have entered into what I fondly refer to as “the dark days” because I am not a snow lover (I probably mention this about 3 times a day) and when I can’t wear jeans and a t-shirt outside it is not good! Today’s look is a really cute, low key look that anyone can rock when it’s cold.  I love this plaid shirt because it is short sleeved! So perfect for the summer (but waayyyy too cold to show you right now!) And of course I have to rock the moto jeggings again because they are the best.  And these black ones are so great! As always details are below. Continue reading “Dark Days”

LipSense

Time and time again I have talked about how much I love LipSense so of course it is number 1 on my guide! I love love love this stuff so much.  This is my newest color in the shade Cranberry and it is perfect for those night outs when you want a bold lip that won’t smudge or fade.  Great for Christmas and New Year’s too! Along with being the best product ever, you can also sign up to be a distributer and get LipSense for wholesale prices! You can talk to Rachel from fit.n.lips about that if you are interested or have any questions! Her website is linked HERE.

Tarte Tareist Pro Palette

This one is the more pricy option but so worth the money.  I mean check out those colors! I was a little hesitant about this one just because I wasn’t sure I would use all the colors but oh my gosh was I wrong.  Looking up tutorials and inspiration on Pinterest has helped me to step up my makeup game! I love that it has a ton of matte colors, I feel like that look is just so in right now and it is easy to create a really gorgeous look that isn’t too over the top, you know?

T-Shirts

Clothes are always a great option, especially when they are a great price and as cute as this one is! I scored this shirt for $13! I love the detailing on it, the little gold running through it just looks so pretty.  I have linked some shirts below that I think are super cute and are all under $15, perfect stocking stuffers!

Jewelry can be hard to pick out for another person but these two top picks of mine are sure to wow anyone! I have talked about this choker before and so I wanted to add it in again because its so great for the trendy girl in your life! And the bracelets below are great for those who really love to accessorize and pack on the bling!

Thread Wallet

And lastly I had to include a little something for the men in our lives.  This thread wallet is so great because you can throw it on your key chain and you are good to go! These muted, earthy colors are great for that special man in your life. img_4841

Bright Endeavors Candle

Today’s post highlights a non-profit that does so much good for women and really makes a difference in our communities.  Bright Endeavors Candles is a business that employs young single mothers and teaches them the skill of candle making. I think that the following quote says it best:

“The social enterprise provides an opportunity for women to develop job skills, gain leadership and responsibility within a professional environment creating sustainable, premium soy candles. ”  Continue reading “Bright Endeavors Candle”

Younique Review

I am always on the hunt for great makeup and love trying out new brands! I am sure that you have heard of Younique Cosmetics, the brand that is all over Facebook and has that amazing “Photoshop in a bottle” foundation. Well I am testing some of their popular items and giving you my real opinion of them! So keep reading to see if this brand is all that the reps make it out to be. Continue reading “Younique Review”

Sunday Best

Happy Sunday friends! Sundays are my favorite because we get to go to church and relax today, what could be better than that. Here is a little Sunday best post, I love a good chiffon shirt and printed skirt and think the combo here is so cute! This shirt is from the cute boutique Charming Chenille, when I say they have great prices I actually mean amazing because they have things that I normally see marked up $10-$15 more than what they are selling them for. Check them out and join their Facebook page to see when they have things for sale!  Continue reading “Sunday Best”

LBD and Burgundy

Black and burgundy has to be one of my favorite color combinations of all time.  I love how they both are dark (which matches my winter mood haha!) but the burgundy just adds such a richness that pairs together so well with the black! Plus, who doesn’t love a good LBD, everyone needs one.  This one is a body-con dress which I love so much as well, it just looks so good with everything! Continue reading “LBD and Burgundy”
