I made the executive decision to move my blog over to blogger! Please continue to follow along here!
Hello Friday! Glad to see ya again!
I am so sick of this weather! Yesterday was 18 degrees and we got about an inch of snow. I welcomed this behavior back in December and maybe January. But now…I am over it and ready to not see my jacket until at least December.
I am obsessed with my super easy vday decor. Since it’s been so cold, I haven’t been getting out much the past few days so what’s a girl to do? Valentine’s crafts of course! I saw this pin with printout hearts and it was as simple as cutting and hanging up. I used some tiny cute clothespins left over from wedding shower crafts and a ribbon to hang them up.
Mental note – update picture frame photos haha
Since I have been spending a lot of time indoors, it has given me a chance to get some serious use out of the Barre3 DVDs I got for christmas. I’ve done them 3 days in a row, and I am feeling the burn in my core and arms!
I really hope it warms up before tomorrow morning at 8 am because I am running the Hot Chocolate 15k! Right now the weather is showing an expected 30 degrees at start time…wonderful! I just really really hope it is above freezing. But hey, at least I get a bunch of hot chocolate at the end right? Totally makes it worth running 9.3 miles for huh? 😉
I am no stranger to running in miserable weather…time to bust out the ‘ol penguin hat!
I thought I would cure myself of the winter blues by perusing some of my favorite online stops for sales and found this amazing deal on a Kendra Scott necklace that I think would make an excellent addition to my collection. For a savings of $128, don’t mind if I do!!! Plus, I think it would look so pretty with outfits of all seasons! Last Call always has great deals on Kendra Scott if you catch it at the right time! Check it out, you won’t be sorry!
That’s all folks!! Have a great weekend, and cross your fingers I don’t freeze to death tomorrow morning!!
This week in The Glam Series everyone is talking about their eye makeup routines. Since I already posted here about my favorite eye makeup products, I thought I would just talk about some eye makeup products I am currently lusting after.
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
I have been part of the Naked
Cult Club for a few years now, and actually recently (well for my birthday – thanks Elana!!) got a replacement since I ran out of all my “go-to” shades. I wasn’t that impressed with the Naked 2 so didn’t have high hopes when I heard that they were coming out with a third member of the Naked family. However, this palette is right up my alley! I love all the shimmery rose-y shades!
Benefit Watt’s Up
I received a small sample tube of this in my Sephora birthday gift. I have always been a fan of brow bone highlight powder, but never used a cream based highlighter. I found that this product did much more than just regular powder because you can use it on multiple areas of your face. Nose, inner eye, cheek bones…it covers all the bases and lasts all day.
Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes
I’ve never really got into “fancy” mascara. Everyone seems to be obsessed with Benefit “They’re Real” but I didn’t think it was any more special than my drugstore mascara (and almost 3 times the price!). My mom got me this awesome “mascara variety pack” for christmas that had about 10 different mascara minis (some are actually full sized!) so I was excited to try out some new fancy brands before committing to a full size. This one has been my favorite so far! I really feel like it makes my lashes look longer, more defined, and full. I plan on picking up a full size whenever I run out of all my minis!
Which new products are on your wish list? Be sure to check out everyone else’s eye makeup routines over on Jordon’s blog!
PS Hope you like the new theme…I am slowly learning how to be more “blog-savvy”!
Today I am excited to link up with Sarah and Shanna for their weekly fashion linkups to showcase “What I Wore Wednesday” aka WIWW. I actually wore this dress last “Casual Friday” in the office. I usually always think about what I am going to wear the next day before falling asleep but after being sick and living in sweatpants and a snuggie the past 2 weeks, I have been feeling pretty uninspired. So what’s a girl to do? Pinterest of course! I just searched “Casual Friday” and a bunch of super cute outfits (and funny cartoons) popped up!
This outfit in particular peaked my interest because I had a similar sweater and jeans and couldn’t remember the last time I wore them.
And here is my take on it:
Both the sweater and jeans are from Old Navy, the boots are Steve Madden, and the necklace is one of my favs which I ordered online almost 2 years ago at the beginning of the whole “bubble necklace” craze. Also, I swear I don’t wear this sweater all the time! It has just had a lot of face time on the blog so far!
