Look Book Remix: Floral Maxi Dress

At 4 foot 11, finding maxi dresses is really hard. Most are taller than I am! However, two years ago I finally found one that fit me. It is the perfect thing to throw on when I want to look dressed up, but I'm being lazy. I love my floral maxi dress so much, that I thought it was time to break it out here again.

Even though its finally warming up where, it felt like summer would never come. When I went wedding dress shopping in April, I thought it was going to be a nice warm day, so I was caught off guard when it was in the low 60's! I still wanted to look cute for my big day, so I layered my maxi dress with a cardigan, and I loved the look!

Makeup Looks: Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad

For those that are new here, I am a crazy cat lady. I have had my cat, Muffin, since I was 9, and she is my fur child. And what do children do on Mother's day? Well they get gifts for their mom's of course! This year, Muffin sent me the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Quad. The real question is, why was my mom's name on the packing slip?

This eyeshadow set comes with four colors, Base, Define, Contour, and Highlight. It comes with step-by-step instructions for the Lift Eyes look, but you can also try the Define Eyes, Widen Eyes, and the Narrow Eyes looks.

Life's A Peach

I am really enjoying (slowly) working through the Ciate 2015 Mini Mani Month box. All of the polishes are so pretty and I love getting inspiration from the names. This time, I grabbed Ciate Life's a Peach, and that meant it was time for peach nail art!

Julep Maven May 2016 Box - Rainbow Bright

My mom and I signed up to be Julep Mavens way back when you could skip any box, and we usually skip them. But so far, both the April box, and the May box, really caught my eye. This month, we were introduced to the Rainbow Bright collection. All the polishes are so gorgeous that it was really hard to choose a box. After a lot of debate, I went with the Bombshell box.

Look Book: Seeing Stars

I love my Canon, but I have one problem with it: it doesn't fit in my purse! Whether that's because my bag is too small, or I have too much stuff in it, is up for debate. When I go out and I want to bring my Canon, I used my old bag, which is large enough, but a little too young for me. I needed the perfect bag.

I thought a bucket bag would fit the bill. Big enough to fit my Canon, plus my other stuff, and grown up enough so I can pretend I am an adult. After some searching, and a lot of debate, I settled on the Night Lights Star-Studded Bucket Bag, by Betsey Johnson.

Prima Ballerina

When I was 3 years old, I started taking ballet classes. I think the first thing I ever wanted to be when I grew up was a ballerina. However, most little kids don't have much dedication, and I quit when I was 5. The reason? The dance studio was too cold.

When I grabbed Ciate Prima Ballerina out of the 2015 Mini Mani Month box, I wanted to try ballet shoe nail art. Ciate Prima Ballerina is a medium gray cream, which doesn't really scream ballerina to me.

Makeup Looks: 50 Shades of Grey

It was a Sunday afternoon, nails were freshly done, and it was time to work on a makeup look. I took a look at what I hadn't used in a while, and a collected a pile of silver eyeshadows. As I put together a look, I was trying to think of a name for it. With all the grays, I thought it would be fun to call it 50 Shades of Grey. Then it was time for lipstick, and there was nothing more fitting then red, just like the red room in the book.

Look Book: May The 4th Be With You

Happy Star Wars day! Today is May the 4th, which sounds like "may the force", making today a Star Wars holiday. Acceptable ways to celebrate are to watch all seven movies, drink Star Wars themed drinks, and dress up as your favorite character. Since I am working today, I think I'll sneak in a little Star Wars fun by wearing a necklace my bestie, Sara, got for me.

My brother is a huge Star Wars fan, and he got me into it at a young age. Over the years I have collected some Star Wars themed clothes and accessories, but none are as awesome as these Star Wars leggings I got last year. They are totally ridiculous, but I love them anyway. I knew I had to bring them out for May the 4th!
