Fun Events at One Loudoun

On Wednesday I was able to attend a blogger happy hour at Matchbox in One Loudoun. For those in the Northern Virginia/DMV area, One Loudoun is an awesome downtown area. It is pretty new, but already filling up with a lot of great restaurants and hangouts.

I Said Yes To The Dress!

Just over a week ago I traveled to New York for the day that all girls spend their whole life dreaming about, trying on wedding dresses! I had seen a dress on Say Yes To The Dress a year ago, and it was so beautiful, I knew I needed to try it on. My mom found a place in New York (no, not Kleinfeld's), that had the dress, and we made an appointment.

Look Book: Bloggers Gonna Blog

I started this blog four and a half years ago, a few months after I graduated college. College is the place you can express yourself with out any many consequences. My hair was every color of the rainbow, I rocked quite a few piercings, and of course I could wear whatever I liked.

Purple Rainbow

I have really been enjoying gaining inspiration from the Ciate Mini Mani Month 2015 box. Not only are the polishes gorgeous, but they have fun names! Recently, I grabbed Ciate Purple Rainbow, which is a holo champagne glitter in a clear base. When it hits the light, the color shift is beautiful. I decided to have a little fun with the name with some purple rainbow nail art.

Swatch Saturday: Deborah Lippmann Just Walk Away Renee

Today is a super, amazing, exciting day! Can you guess why? Well, today I am actually in New York shopping for my wedding dress! Seriously, this is the day every girl dreams about. I am so excited to try on a wedding dress for the first time, and hopefully I find the one!

Today is also another Swatch Saturday, and I have a Deborah Lippmann Walk Away Renee swatch to share. This polish is a vampy burgundy, that was made in collaboration with Renee Zellweger.

Makeup Looks: Rainbow

Have you ever felt, as a blogger, you had so much you had to do? Review this, sponsored post on that day, get this holiday look up, sometimes its hard to sit down and create what you want to create. I feel like I am finally in that place. My list of things to review is at 0, I am all moved into my new house, and now I can finally focus on looks I have been wanting to try.

For a while I wanted to do a rainbow makeup look. I love playing with fun eye shadow, and I love rainbows, so it only made sense!

Muffin's 17th Birthday for #Caturday

March 31st was my kitty, Muffin's, 17th birthday. I have celebrated every one of her birthdays, and even threw a sweet 16 party for her last year. When I was a kid that usually involved putting some extra treats in her dinner that night. As she got older, it was really important to me to do something extra special to celebrate her.

I got her when I was 9 years old, so we practically grew up together. She has been around through my most difficult times, and my best times. She was left on the doorstep of my vet at 3 weeks old with a broken leg. Even though I rescued her, she really rescued me.

Julep Maven April 2016 Box: Brights + Whites

My mom signed up for the Julep Maven box back when you could opt out of any month. Usually we opt out, but I was really excited about the Julep Maven April 2016 box. This month, Julep introduced the Brights + Whites collection, and I went for the Classic with a Twist box.

Swatch Saturday: Julep Colette

I'm back! I hope you enjoyed all the wonderful guest bloggers that were here the past few weeks, thank you again to all of your help. Ben and I are moved into out new house, and have been working hard on getting unpacked and making our house feel like a home. Once we get a little more settled, I will share some pictures.

It's been a while since there's been a swatch Saturday around here. I had a couple of swatches in the vault, and since I haven't have much time to work on new nail art, I thought it would be a good time to share them.
