February 2017 Round Up

And just like that, February was over already. It was nice having a pretty low-key month, especially since March looks like it's going to be crazy one. I still had a lot of fun this month celebrating Valentine's day and hanging out with friends.

Old Lace

I feel like a broken record when I say this, but I have been feeling pretty uninspired lately. With so much going on in my life, from the wedding right around the corner, and excititng things happening at work, it has been hard to think of nail art ideas.

Thank goodness for Pinterest! It has been saving my butt (and also making me want to spend money on lots of wedding details I probably don't need). I found this beautiful lace nail art look and I knew I wanted to recreate it. I loved the soft neutrals and the delicate lace.

Look Book: Purple Peplum Sweater

Every Valentine's day, my mom sends me (and now Ben too) a little care package. The rules are that it has to have Reese's and a stuffed animal. She usually also throws in some clothes, makeup, and other accessories. In my package this year, I got this beautiful purple peplum sweater.

Wedding Crafts: Painted Wine Bottles

It has been a hot minute since I have posted about my wedding planning on the blog. Since yesterday was our 2 year anniversary of being engaged, I thought it was time to share some of the things that I have been working on.

While touring wedding venues, we saw one wedding that I just thought was so beautiful. One thing I loved about this wedding was all the personal touches that the bride added. I actually used some ideas in a few of my crafts. The first one I worked on was painted wine bottles.

Makeup Looks: Smokey Valentine

Can you believe that Valentine's day is right around the corner already? Ben and I are actually celebrating tonight. We are getting dressed up and going out for a fancy dinner. This is also a special day for us, because Ben proposed on Valentine's day two years ago.

I decided that I wanted to create a Valentine's day makeup look, so I started browsing Pinterest. I found three looks I loved, but I ended up deciding to go with this Valentine's day smokey eye.

Love Letters

Even though my fiance, Ben, and I are millennials, there is something special about handwriting your feelings for someone, and sending it in the mail (snail mail that is!). We only wrote each other love letters a couple of times while we were in our four year long distance relationship. 

Now that we live together, we do leave the occasional love note. I think that taking the time to write your feelings down is so special. It takes time and thought, and you can keep it forever. I save all the love notes that Ben has written for me. You can't save a text and look back on it with your grandchildren!

Look Book: Triple Heart Dress

Valentine's day is around the corner and I am getting excited. I love dressing up and going out for a fancy dinner. Ben and I are pretty frugal, so we don't eat out often, and when we do it's usually on a budget, so it's fun to splurge a few nights a year.

Of course I can't wear any ol' dress! I love dressing up in festive outfits for most holidays, and Valentine's day is no exception. I picked up this amazing heart key hole dress a few years ago and I wore it every Valentine's day. Sadly, I gained some weight and I wasn't able to fit in it anymore (and I gave it away at a clothing exchange). Luckily, my mom found a similar dress in a bigger size!

French Tip Hearts

Happy first day of February! I love the start of February because love is in the air. Why's that? Valentine's day is around the corner, of course! Love is such a focal point of my life that I even got a tattoo of my favorite Rooney song, That Girl Has Love. Of course I love my Fall holidays, but a day celebrating the best feeling in the world, love, is up there on my list.

Since Valentine's day is one of my favorite holidays, of course that means I need to do some looks on the blog to celebrate. I'm sure you have all seen this French tip heart manicure all over Pinterest. I have had my nails almond shaped for a while, so I have no idea why it took me so long to try out this look!
