valentine’s day outfit & makeup


I purchased this romper from Dainty Hooligan a while back. I love Valentine’s day, and the colors red and pink, but I thought that I would spice things up this year with a deep navy; you’d definitely stick out as a little more original in this I think! The thing about this outfit, though — when I got it in the mail, and tried it on, the shorts were super short and the top super low! So I don’t think I could get away with wearing it to a steak dinner — it’s definitely a “going out” outfit.


I stumbled upon this beauty on Pinterest (of course). I love a soft brown smokey eye and the winged eyeliner! Unfortunately this link on pinterest was a dead end (I hate it when that happens!) but I’ll just be using this for inspiration.

What are your outfit & beauty plans for this Valentine’s Day?



bareminerals: blush & eyeshadow sets




For my Family Christmas, my cousins and I always do a really fun gift exchange. The limit is always $30. I really got away with some amazing stuff this year, so I thought I would share! Somehow one of my cousins made out with these two kits from Ulta’s Black Friday sale — one a blush kit, complete with mineral blush and a blush brush, and another an eyeshadow kit, with two eye shadows and an eyeshadow brush. What a steal at only $10 each! Unfortunately, I couldn’t find these kits online for sale anymore. However, I can say that if you’re considering purchasing these separately — GO for it! I’ve always loved BareMinerals, and these products did not disappoint. The eyeshadows were neutral enough for me to wear to work but I also could have layered on more of the darker shade for a night out.

Shown above are:

  • Blush: Strawberry Cream
  • Blush brush: Feather Light
  • Light eyeshadow: Toffee (PERFECT amount of sparkle for the holidays!)
  • Dark eyeshadow: Creme brûlée
  • Eyeshadow brush: Eye Defining
