How was you all’s Valentine’s Day? How did you celebrate? As for me, the actual day was pretty normal being that it was on a Tuesday. The BF and I decided to celebrate over the weekend and go out to dinner .
I put together this simple/chic outfit with a vampy makeup look to match. I love how it came together and I wanted to give you all inspiration for a date night (or just a night out in general).
I love putting these type of looks together. The makeup and the bomber jacket were definitely the staple pieces that made this look what it was. Let me know if you all will like to see more post like this in the future.
Anastasia Beverly Hills glowkits are basically my life ! I own two of them (moonchild and sweets) and now I’m the proud mama of a new child… sundipped!
This glowkit is perfect for the upcoming spring and summer seasons and is everything that you could possibly need for a good glow. This kit recently launched last spring/summer but sold out quick. The brand is making this palette permanent and in stores on March 15,2017 (I’m not sure if the same date applies for outside of the U.S.). The kits retail for $40 a piece , so basically $10 a highlight which is a steal!
Also the brand will be launching a new kit this March in collaboration with YouTube personality Nicole Guerriero. The world is currently waiting on the swatches and the inside of the kit. Make sure to follow Anastasia Beverly Hills on all their social media to be in the loop of all product launches.
I swatched the sun dipped glow kit for you all ,so you can have an idea of how pigmented the shades are.
Let me know if you all own this or any of the other glowkits and how you feel about them. Also are you all like me and practically can’t sleep think about he new Nicole Guerriero glowkit? I know it’s going to be gorgeous !
So ever since chokers became a “thing” again I have noticed myself stacking either multiple chokers together or necklaces with chokers. I like the style and how it looks. It’s so effortless and immediately dresses up a simple top. Try it !
Today the sun slept in and while I wish I was doing the same, I had class so I decided to get myself somewhat together. It was slightly chilly out so I threw on this urban outfitters urban renewal flannel, some mother jeans, my old skool vans, and an adidas hat. These type of outfits are so quick to put together and very simple and comfortable .
Don’t let the word Texas fool you. The occasional cold and dry days have tore my lips up. I literally can’t take it anymore (immediately books flight to Cabo). I rounded up my three lip balms I’ve been using throughout the season .
Eos– Eos is my all time fav lip balm that I constantly repurchase because of how good it is. I like how it’s buttery and moisturizing, the moisture does not last long, but it leaves the lips soft and ready to take on the cold.
Bag Balm– This lip product is a new fav. I recently purchased this from urban outfitters . The reviews on urban and Amazon was beyond amazing so I had to give in. The consistency is thick and has a medicinal smell . If your sensitive to smell this may not be the balm for you, but it does not bother me at all. The great thing about this balm is that it was made for severely cold climates so here in Texas I’m set! I love that I can use this for my hands, feet, elbows, ankles, knees… okay, basically my whole body! The small tin is great to have in your bag for on the go application, so you have no excuse to be ashy or chappy!
Rosebud Salve – This is my least fav out of the bunch but it does a decent job. I picked this up at Ulta just to try and it has lasted me a long time . I love that this is portable because it’s slim and easy to keep in your pocket or a purse. The thing that bugs me about this balm is that I have to constantly keep applying it to maintain moisture. Unlike the eos , whose moisture fades and leaves your lips feeling pleasant, this one leaves my lips dry and I constantly have to keep reaching for it. I’m pretty sure this is good for the company but not for me.
Do you ever get that feeling when you are obsessed with a piece of clothing ? Seriously, like all you can think about is how happy you are with a purchase it just isn’t funny. Well…that’s me with the Free People Allure Pullover .
This piece caught my eye over Christmas break (preferably the lavender color). I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I had it in my wishlist for sometime , and then something magical happened…IT WENT ON SALE!
I ordered two staple colors from Nordstrom (navy (reg. price $98) and taupe – currently on sale for $73.50 ). Once I received the pullovers I immediately fell in love with how thick and slouchy they were . The reviews said to size down but I wanted an oversized look so I ordered a small. I can easily wear it off the shoulder or have a deep v-neck look. The make is retro looking with the tight fit around the lower arm and waist. This is going to be perfect for dinner with jeans and a trench coat or for class with leggings and tennis . Anyway you style it you will definitely receive compliments. Unfortunately the sale has ended but I would not wait on these, their definetly worth the splurge.
*(The bralette featured is the a Victoria Secret long line plunge bralette – perfect for peeking out of deep v neck tops or dressing up with dresses, pant suits, or tops. Also comes in a variety of colors.)
