Swatch Saturday: Deborah Lippmann Believe

Recently, I received a package in the mail from HSN. Now, I didn't order anything from there, so I was a little confused. In the box there were three Deborah Lippmann nail polishes, and a note that read "It has been a while since I sent you a package. Love, Mommy". Yep, my mom sent me a "just because" gift of nail polish!

Makeup Looks: Summer Garden

It's funny how life works sometimes. When I sit down with a plan of doing a makeup look for the blog, I usually end up not liking it. Then when I do my makeup just for a day of running errands, I love it. I put on a green and pink outfit one Saturday, and as usual I did some makeup to match. I was just putting stuff on with no plan and I ended up really loving it! After I came back from the grocery store I took lots of photos!

Florida Photography

A few weeks ago Ben and I traveled to Florida and met my dad there to visit my grandpa, aunts, and cousins. There is a beautiful nature walk right by my grandpa's house that my dad and I love going to. The last three times my dad and I went to Florida we made sure to stop by our favorite trail.

This time was a little different, becasue it was the first time going to the nature trail with my brand new camera! I always have fun taking photos there, but this time I was ever more excited. I was so proud of them I wanted to share some of them here!

Pastel Party

Is it just me, or did this summer go by really fast? I am shocked that the first day of fall is a month away! Don't get me wrong, I am counting down the days until fall, but I still like summer too. Once September rolls around I am going to submerge myself into scarfs, pumpkin spice everything, and jewel tones. So in these last few weeks of summer, I wanted to squeeze in something fun and colorful.

Swatch Saturday: Hard Candy Claws Up!

This is it, the post you have all been waiting for...

Not long ago, the nail polish brand, Hard Candy, celebrated its 20th anniversary. To mark the momentous occasion, they re-released their eight original shades for a limited time. This didn't really catch my attention, until I saw swatches popping up on the blogs. Apparently, Hard Candy made a nail polish named Claws Up! and I and no idea! There was a nail polish out there with the exact name of my blog, and I was completely unaware.

Milani Power Lip Review

I love finding deals from scouring clearance racks, spotting sales, and using coupons. On a recent trip to CVS, I was checking out some Milani lipsticks, since I have made it a goal to wear more lip colors. I spotted the Milani Power Lip collection, and it was on sale for 50% off! I bought one and fell in love instantly. So I went back the next day (with a coupon I got after buying the first one) and I picked up three more!

Look Book: Boho Chic

Recently, I got a craving for maxi dresses. I only have one, and I was on a mission to add more to my wardrobe. It was time for a mall trip. While I was in H & M I found the cutest summer dresses with fun patterns and they were paired with beautiful lace shirts over top. I wanted one so badly, but I was on a mission that I didn't want to stray from.

It was then I remembered that I have a cute summer dress with a fun pattern and I have a lace shirt! I didn't need to buy the set, I already had everything I needed to rock a cute summer boho outfit.

Elegance in Grayscale

We have all been there. Sitting down an our desk, looking at our nail polish, and having no idea what to do. Yes, that's right, I have been in an inspirational rut lately. Browsing Pinterest is a great way to gather ideas during these rough times. I saw this elegant nail art, so I decided to create my own.

Makeup Looks: Kat Von D

Rabbits, rabbits! Wow it's August already. I am actually spending this weekend visiting family in Florida, but I have a post scheduled to share with you!

I have been loving the Kat Von D Kat Eye Set ever since Muffin got it for me for mother's day. After I tried the eyeliner and mascara duo the first time, I knew I wanted to do a Kat Von D makeup look. I found this photo of Kat and I instantly fell in love with her makeup, the fun eye shadows, the bold lip, and of course her tattoos!
