Bow and Drape!

Hey guys!! So finally...an outfit post! Yay!! My new camera is amazing! I grabbed a Canon Rebel T3. I would have loved to splurge for a T3i, but alas....wedding budget doesn't allow for it right now! This post is sharing a sweatshirt from Bow and Drape that arrived in the mail a couple days ago! I love it! I'm so excited....Bow and Drape allows you to create personalized garments....really awesome stuff!! So many cute variations....it took me forever to settle on the style I did! I want to create at least 10 more!! I wanted a sweatshirt that was super cute and summery and I think I created the perfect one! I hope you like it too! Enjoy!

Skin Care: Part Two!

Hey guys! So I've been wanting to do another skin care post ever since my last one as I have so many other products I've discovered lately that I wanted to share with you! First off, I had a groupon that allowed me to try out intense pulse light therapy which heals sun damage! Which of course has made me sunscreen obsessed seeing as I don't want to re-do all the damage that has been fixed so far! I have been using Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Broad Spectrum SPF 60. I love it, it's lightweight and not oily like most sunscreen. I have also started using SkinCeuticals tinted sunscreen for everyday use. It's great as a primer before you put on your makeup! In terms of makeup, I usually don't wear any form of foundation. My skin has never liked the stuff but when I go out for a special event or something I have discovered Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream which I quite like that doesn't irritate my skin too much! The only thing I use on my face everyday is some foundation under my eyes to hide my dark spots! I have been using Garnier Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller for years now and love that stuff! It covers my dark spots perfectly! 

In terms of eye creams, I have been using the stuff for as long as I can remember! You can never start using anti-aging products too early! I have recently switched over and started using Organic Caffeine Eye Cream while also every once in a while switching it up and using Burts Bees Naturally Ageless Smoothing Eye Cream! The combination while doesn't totally eliminate dark spots and lines, it still works wonders! Lets face it....unless you're really into cosmetic surgery and sleeping 9-10 hours a day....dark spots and lines are going to happen no matter what you use! I have started using an eye makeup primer lately. My makeup has never stayed on my eyes very well. My eyelids always became oily through the day and everything would smudge off so after lots of research I decided on Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer. This stuff is worth every penny. It is so amazing! My eye makeup actually stays on all day now! I can't live without this stuff!

Last but not least, makeup remover. I have been using the same one for at least three or four years now. This stuff is inexpensive and amazing. I use Almay Oil Free Gentle Makeup Remover. I don't think I'll ever switch to anything else. It's perfect! Hope you like the post and that you maybe discover a new product or two! Enjoy!

New Pumps, Pearls and Leopard!

Hey everyone!! So this post is a little heart breaking for me....during this photo-shoot my tripod fell over and my camera hit the ground pretty hard and wouldn't turn on after that...it is currently at Mikes Camera getting diagnosed for whatever the problem is! For someone who is on a wedding budget like I am....I am crossing my fingers and hoping it is something minor that won't cost my an arm and a leg or a new camera entirely....please send some good wishes to my amazing camera. I've had quite the journey with it to date and am not ready to part with it! I know it's just a camera but I've grown pretty attached to it! I had to pay $12 to get the photos off of my memory card so that I could even share this post. Not only that but they will have my camera for at least the next week which means no outfit posts for a while....my apologies in advance! I have some posts in mind already that don't involve outfits but still, they are my favorite to share with you! Hope you like this look! Enjoy!

Scalloped and Blue!

Hey guys! Happy Saturday! Yay for the weekend! If only I didn't have to work that would be a dream! Just wanted to share a little outfit from the other day that featured a bright blue shirt with some detailed scalloped edges and some shorts I made a couple years ago! I found the necklace while digging through some old jewelry from high school and am obsessed with it all over again! Simple double strand vintage necklace that I found from Goodwill! Simple, classic and still makes a little bit of a statement! Hope you all have a great weekend! Enjoy!
