November 2016 Roundup

November is always a fun and excititng month for me. First of all, it's my birthday month! I had an amazing birthday this year. That day my coworkers surprised me with decorations and treats, and that night Ben and I celebrated out at dinner. I also got lots of amazing gifts from my friends and family. And then who can leave out Thanksgiving? For me, it's a whirl-wind of multiple dinners and family gatherings. I'm sad to see November end, since I'm not a fan of Decembers, but I do have a couple things I am looking forward to next month!

Makeup Looks: Chocolate Berry

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am all stuffed full of delicious food, and I get to do it all again today! All this talk of food has inspired this makeup look. While I love playing around with bright colors and dramatic looks, sometimes it's nice to put together a wearable look for family functions or a night out. One of my favorite ways to do that is with pink and brown.

For this makeup look I took inspiration from chocolate berry and focused on shimmering browns to make your eyes pop, and pretty pinks for a pop of color. I think that's the winning color combo for a gorgeous makeup look.

Fall Foliage

As I'm sure you know, fall is my favorite season. I love the weather, the holidays, and the gorgeous changing leaves. Watching the leaves change color is something I look forward to all year long. And while Halloween is my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving is a close second. I can't wait to start a weekend of celebrating tomorrow. To get in the fall holiday spirit, I went with some fall foliage nail art.

Look Book: Blue Suede Shoes

Lately I have been wanting to up my shoe game. I have a lot of simple heels and flats, but I was lacking in the boot department, specifically booties. I have slowly been adding booties into my collection every year, from a pair of black wedges, to beige chunky heels. This year, I had my eye on blue high-heeled booties. After some searching, I found the perfect pair.

Summer Engagement Photos

Yes, I am aware of how extremely late this post is. It was 30 degrees this morning where I am, and I am just now posting summer engagement photos. To be fair, we actually took the photos in September, and I didn't get them back until the end of the month. After that I had the 5k, then it was Halloween, then my birthday...and now it's mid-November.

Ben and I actually had our official engagement photos in the fall of last year, but when we chose our wedding photographer, we got an engagement session included. Since we already had traditional photos done, we decided to have more fun with this shoot to better show our personalities and interests. We decided on a summer zoo engagement photo session.

Swatch Saturday: Julep Scorpio

Astrology has always interested me. I love the mythology and the stories behind it. A lot of people think that astrology is just your sign, and predicting what will happen that day, but it is so much more than that. Your birth chart is full of planets and asteroids inside of many different signs. The sign the sun was in when you were born is what people usually think of as their sign.

While I was born with the sun in Scorpio, I have many other signs that I resonate with. However, I do have a close connection with Scorpio. When I saw that Julep was releasing a Zodiac collection, I had to get my hands on Scorpio as soon as I could.

Halloween + 27th Birthday

This time of the year is always so busy for both myself and the blog. With both Halloween and my birthday just a week ago, I have lots that I want to share, no time to do it!

Look Book: Birthday Sequins

The last couple weeks have been a whirl-wind! From Halloween to my birthday, it was non-stop. I have a post coming up soon with more details. However, my birthday was a few days ago, and in a few more days I'll have reached my 5 year blogging anniversary. I thought that called for a celebratory outfit!

Usually for a birthday look, I would opt for a more dressed up outfit. However, I scored this sequin sweater from a recent clothing exchange (a bunch of girls bring their clothes they don't want, and take the clothes they like - it's awesome!) and birthdays called for sequins.

Dia De Los Muertos: 27th Birthday Nail Art

Happy birthday to me! Today is my 27th birthday. Wow, that sounds old! Though, I barely even look 18 Today I am celebrating by finally opening the pile of gifts my family sent to me that have been taunting me for a week, and then Ben is taking me to The Melting Pot for dinner.

Every year I choose to do Day of the Dead nail art for my birthday (26th, 25th, 24th, 23rd). Why Dia De Los Muertos nail art for my birthday? For one, today is also the Day of the Dead, a Mexican holiday where you celebrate loved ones that have passed on. Second, I get to extend my month Halloween nail art to my birthday!

October 2016 Round Up

Well my favorite month has come to and end, and I have to wait another year for another October. I really enjoyed celebrating Halloween all month long from pumpkin picking, to winning the house Halloween decorating contest, to Halloween weekend.

While I might be sad October is over, I have a lot to look forward to in November. Thanksgiving is my second favorite holiday. Oh! And my birthday is tomorrow!
