Spring Nail Color!

24 Mar

Spring has sprung and I’m sharing my favorite bright and cheery nail color with you guys. The color is Lounge lover by Essie and is a pretty peachy/coral hue.essie1 It’s not overly bright in a tacky way, it’s actually very feminine and pretty. It also looks amazing on all skin tones.  Shop Essie polish HERE.

Note: Tart deco and Shop til I drop are very similar to Lounge Lover

Happy spring:)

xo, Journey

Fall Lipstick Must have

2 Oct

Every year myself and countless bloggers compile lists of our favorite Fall lipsticks to share with the world. Every year the same lipstick is on my list. I’m sharing only one color this year because I feel so strongly that it should be a part of every woman’s Fall lip color collection. Without a doubt, Mac Rebel is my go-to, must have Fall lip color.mac

The beautiful rich berry/wine hue is gorgeous and looks amazing on all skin tones as well.  I can’t even remember what tube I’m on at this point- I literally wear it all Fall long and into Winter as well. I love love love this color! What are your favorite fall lippies?

Mac Rebel $17 

 

 

Cute As a Button Cards!

28 Apr

I love games- any and all games including cards! Every household has at least 1 deck of cards and fashionistas are no different. The question is- Why should we have the same boring deck of cards as every one else when they make super cute cards for people like us?! I must say- I really do own the cutest decks of cards I’ve ever seen and you should too.  One is a completely pink set of cards by Bicycle(the card brand that’s been around for decades )and the other is a boxed set of 2 decks featuring a pink deck and a mint deck by Tiffany & Co. Whenever I bust out my cards, conversation ensues! They are THAT cute! These cards also make great gifts as well.

 

The all pink deck is priced at $5.46

The Tiffany & Co boxed set is priced at $35 (You can call your local Tiffany & Co. for their selection of colors)

Both sets of cards on my coffee table! Too cute! (excuse the crooked pic)

Color Of The Year!!!!

1 Jan

Happy New Year!!!!!! 2013 was a phenomenal year! Before I get too into this post, I would first like to say thank you to everyone that has supported this blog of mine since the beginning. If you’re new to it, I also want to thank you for stopping by! I am so grateful to you all!!! XO- Journey

Every year Pantone also known as the authority on color announces the “color of the year” and this year it’s a lovely purplish/fuschia hue they call Radiant Orchid.

As with any trend, a great way to get involved is to start with makeup.  Everyone can afford a lipstick or a nail polish and it’s not as risky as wearing a dress or a coat in that hue if you’re not that into color. Below are some fun makeup products to shop that will get you right into this trend!

Side note: This color is flattering on all skin tones!

My favorite lipstick $4.99 I can’t get enough of this lipstick!

Eyeliner $19 I own so many of these Urban Decay 24/7 eye liners and they are some of the BEST on the market. They really do last 24 hours and are highly pigmented.

Shadow pot$19 While we’re on the subject of pigment, Urban Decay has the most pigmented shadows EVER! They are by far my favorite eyeshadow brand!

Pinspiration: Shades Of Grey!

4 Nov

Hi everyone!  As usual I was on Pinterest for over an hour this evening looking  at everything from home decor to handbags. I got sidetracked with cute grey nails and thought I’d share my favorites with you. I love rocking grey nails year round but especially in the Fall/Winter-  It just goes so well with black and burgundy which are colors I wear quite often during the cooler months.

From shiny to matte to french tipped here is some Pinspiration below!

Teal Heels!!!!

17 Oct

Every Fall & Winter a slew of  gorgeous rich colors make their way into our wardrobes. Most of us turn to our black, grey, brown and navy pieces throwing the occasional burgundy and camel in the mix and call it a day.  This year however, I’m already seeing much more color- tons of reds, greens, oranges and purples but my favorite color of all is TEAL! I love how luxuriously fun teal is! The emerald meets deep blue hue is so pretty and pairs well with many other colors like black, grey, camel and gold!  I can’t even express how much I love gold and teal together!

A great way to incorporate this divine color into your wardrobe is to start with a heel!  Check out these styles below!
