I was lucky enough to win tickets, through Boston Bloggers, to the Wayfair Heart Home Conference. So I spent the weekend in Boston. I did some shopping, did some learning.. and I even managed to squeeze in a Fashion Blogger Event at the CambridgeSide Galleria. See my boat ride through the Charles River (love that dirty water)…. and what I got in my amazing swag bags!
This week’s prompt for the Makeup Mixup, with the fabulous hosts Jaelan & Miranda, is Pumpkin Spice. The closest thing I have to any pumpkin colored makeup is my newly acquired liquid lipstick from Ofra in Miami Fever. It’s a collab between Ofra and YouTube Beauty Guru Kathleen Lights. Since Ms. Lights has an eyeshadow collab with ColourPop, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to do a Kathleen Lights inspired makeup look. The Miami Fever is the “pumpkin” and the Where The Light Is bronze/gold eyeshadows are the spice! Since this is the very first time I used Miami Fever, I also included a little first impression review. The whole look makes me think of Fall and Pumpkin Spice… grab a latte, and enjoy!
It seems like every Fall, a deep bold lip is popular… but the vampy lip seems to be hitting peak popularity. If you’ve been dying to try this trend but feel like it’s too far out of your comfort zone, I have Vampy Lips for Everyone…a shade for every comfort level…
They say if you don’t like the weather in New England… just wait 5 mins. While I admit to loving Fall, and being over the Summer heat, the weather here has gone from the 80s to the 50s… I need some transition weather desperately! I wanted to take one of my Summer dresses and make it cooler weather appropriate, so here’s some tips… (more…)
I’m swatching the new Milani Amore Matte Lip Cremes… They were limited edition, but I’m told they’re now a permanent product (thank goodness because they’re amazing). I ordered some online, but I found the rest in my local CVS.
This week was supposed to be mellow (if you saw yesterday’s post, then pun intended). However, it’s ended up being a pretty stressful week. My new iPhone stopped working less than a week after I got it… and since they didn’t have any in stock, and I NEED a phone for this weekend (more on that later)… I traded it in for a new 6s. Right after I write this I’m going to frantically get it set up the way I want it and pack for the weekend… (more…)
This week’s prompt for the Makeup Mixup with Jaelan and Miranda is Matte About You. I had to pry myself away from the shimmer, but I did a completely matte makeup look, and I actually love the way it came out!
