ShelterPups Custom Stuffed Cats

A couple of years ago I was browsing around Pinterest I and stumbled upon a website that made stuffed animal dogs custom to look like your own dog. I thought that was the coolest thing, and I really wanted a custom stuffed animal of my cat, Muffin. Unfortunately, ShelterPups only made custom dogs, with custom cats coming soon.

Swatch Saturday: Deborah Lippmann Sarah Smile

Can you believe that fall is finally here? The time of year I have been looking forward to for nine months! That magical time filled with crisp weather, changing leaves, and pumpkin everything! P.S. When did it become "basic" or "white girl" to like pumpkin?

I have some fun fall posts planned for October, but for now I have a gorgeous swatch to share. This is Deborah Lippann Sarah Smile. Created with the help of Sarah Jessica Parker, this polish is a really pretty pale pink nude.

Look Book: The Book of Mormon

A little while ago, Ben and I got tickets to see Book Of Mormon while it was playing in Washington DC. While we were spending the day in the city, we thought it would be the perfect time to finally hit up The Four Seasons brunch. I promised Ben I would take him there for a belated Valentine's day gift. The show was pretty funny, but also really inappropriate. Brunch...was amazing!

For a day out in the city I wanted to wear sometime cute, but would also keep me cool walking around on a hot day. This is not the first time this skirt has made an appearance on the blog, but it was time to bring it out again.

Makeup Looks: Brown Eyed Girl

I love the song Brown Eyed Girl, though I wish it was Brown and Black Eyed Girl so it could be about me, but that's a mouthful.

Sometimes I will put together a makeup look, nail art, or an outfit, and be totally inspired. Ideas just start flowing and I can't wait to execute everything. That happened when I created my Pocahontas makeup look. I loved the shades of brown mixed with a pop of color, and I really wanted to try it out with purple.

And then I totally forgot.

It wasn't until I was looking through old posts, and I read that I had that idea, that I remembered I wanted to do it!

Mix & Match Makeup Looks: Snow White

If you are new around here, I have a series called Mix & Match, where I match my nail art to a makeup look. Branching off that, I have a Mix & Match series where my looks are inspired by Disney princesses. The other day I posted a Snow White nail art look, so continuing on with my series, today I have a Snow White makeup look to share.

Mix & Match: Snow White

It's been too long since I have done a Mix and Match Disney princess post and I think it's time to change that. The next one I had up on my list was Snow White. That actually might be my least favorite Disney princess movie. It creeps me out! The fact that she lives with seven strange men, and I distinctly remember something about a pig heart.

I had an idea all planned out when I started, and I ended up totally going off script as I went along. I wish I had stuck with my original plan though because when I was all done with these I wasn't too happy with them.

Mirina Collections Review: Audrina Necklace + Double Bead Earrings

Mirina Collections sent me these item for review. All opinions are my own.

How popular are statement necklaces right now? Every time I go out I see someone rocking a bold and beautiful neck piece. I too have jumped on the train and I have an ever growing collection of statement necklaces. That's why I was super excited when Mirina Collections invited me to be a part of their Brand Ambassador program!

Mirini Collections is known for their amazing statement necklaces, but they also offer a huge selection of other accessories too. I chose the Audrina necklace, and I was also sent the Double Bead Earrings for review.

Since this is an honest review it's time for some #realtalk. The website says that necklaces can take three to four weeks to ship. I was emailed when the order processed, but over four weeks later and I still had not received my package. I emailed the company and they told me they just put the package in for overnight shipping and I should get it in a few days. I did get it a few days later, but why was it sent overnight over four weeks after the order processed?

When I received the package, everything was wrapped nicely, but when I opened the wrapping, I found that two of the little pearls on the necklace had come off at some point. and were rolling around loose.

With a little crazy glue, I was able to glue the two pearls back in place.

Look Book: Green Wrap Dress

Remember when I said I was looking to add some maxi dresses to my wardrobe? Well when you're 4 foot 11, it's really hard to do. I swear, most of the dresses were taller than me! After a lit of searching I finally found a dress I loved.

Engagement Parties + Wedding Planning Updates

Can you believe it's September already? This summer has seriously flown by. Usually by now I am longing for scarfs, cool weather, crunchy leaves, and pumpkin spice. But this year I swear I blinked and summer was over.

Maybe that is because I have been so busy. Once the dust settled after Ben and I got engaged, we were in planing mode. Two engagement parties and a ton of venue visits, throw in a few vacations, and I barely had time to breathe. Now that fall is right around the corner, I wanted to take a moment to share some summer wedding planning updates.
