Pretty Pink Pout!

8 May

Every Spring I get so excited to wear pretty pink lipsticks. I wear pink lip color year round, but during the warmer months I go with lighter, more rose toned pinks. I have 2 new favorites to share with you that I’ve been wearing non stop.

The first color is a light dusty rose powder matte by Maybelline called ‘Nocturnal Rose’. Although it’s matte, it’s not the typical drying formula.  This is the color that I’m wearing in my latest Instagram post.  $8 Shop HERE.

The second color is medium warm pink by Bobbi Brown called ‘Bitten’.  It has the look of lipstick, but the feel of a lip balm. $29 Shop HERE.

My Top 10 Fall Nail colors!!!!!

14 Sep

One of the biggest statement making accessories in your wardrobe is your NAILS!!!!!  Nail color can change the entire vibe of an outfit and make you feel polished(no pun intended) and pretty!!!!! The greatest thing about this fabulous “accessory” is that everyone can afford a bottle of nail polish! I wear drug store brands as well as designer and everything in between.  The polishes I will be featuring in this post are all by Essie are around $8  which I think is mid ranged, HOWEVER there are many more affordable options like wet’ n wild and small sample polishes at your local beauty shops.  If you’re on a budget, you can still have fabulous nails!  Anyways, let’s get right to it……here are my top 10 Fall nail polishes that I will be rocking throughout the Fall and well into Winter. Get involved people!!!

Essie ‘Armed and ready’ is a metallic dark olive-green available HERE.

Shades, frames, sunglasses  whatever you want to call them, we all own at least one pair. Chances are they are either wayfarers or aviators. These timeless styles are both classic and modern and look good on many different face shapes and features. Lets give credit where credit is due….. Ray Ban is a pioneer when it comes to sunglasses. In 1936 Aviators were originally developed by Ray Ban to protect pilots eyes while flying and in 1956 Ray Ban manufactured the wayfarer, this design was a break from the traditional metal framed eyewear that dominated at that time. Many styles of sunglasses come and go but these two always remain top sellers. If you don’t own a pair yet, try some on and you just may like them. Your eyes will thank you.
