Friday Faves, March!

Hi there friends I am posting a Friday favorites post today! I am going to share some of my favorite things from the month of March! YAY! HURRAY! OK, let’s get weird! Just kidding. I am going to show 1o of my favorite things this month.

Let’s get started
10. Marsk eyeshadow.

Marsk eyeshadow

You may have seen me talk about this lovely stuff in my ispy unboxing(unbagging really) this month. Marsk is a great company and is cruelty free. I love how pigmented the shadow is. The above is lucky penny.

I had to order some more from their website. Which I will show off once I get it. $22.50 a pot. But, it stays put! If you want to read more of my March Ipsy unboxing check it out here.

Onward!

9. Resident Evil DLC for Xbox One.

Resident Evil

Call me nostalgic. Call me a geek. Call me gamer in heels.RAWR. Resident Evil will always have my heart. I fell in love with this survival horror game back when it came out on Playstation. Anyways. The DLC(downloadable content) is available on Xbox One  for $19.95 and yes is worth it. The game mechanics are much the same, and aiming is still a pain. But the zombies are better, and the graphics a pretty decent for this. Just a tip, a FYI, be sure to burn the zombies when they are dead. Just like in Evil Within.

8. Sonia Kashuk All Covered up Concealer

Sonia Kashuk All covered up concealer

This pot of concealing glory purchasable at Target stores, is my favorite drugstore brand concealer. It covers EVERYTHING. I love it as a pimple hider and under eye concealer. It is thick, but not drying. So it wont dry your skin out. I use a concealer brush and apply it, then pat it with a blender sponge. I love the stuff. And it is pretty cheap $8-9 a pot.

7. Healthy Sexy hair

wpid-20150311_142523.jpg

I love this product! $20+ a bottle, but so worth it. The Soy renewal system, in conjunction with my coconut oil treatments have really made my hair manageable. It smells good and it really works! I mean it WORKS.

6. The beach

Daytona Beach

Even though I got singed and turned into a crispy nugget. I do love it. Normally I sit under an oversized umbrella. I love the relaxing sounds of the waves, the smell of the salty air, and seeing my tiny child run from one puddle to the next. Perfection is a day of sun, sand, tiny child being silly, a ice cold something, and my favorite magazine Vogue.

5. Kindle eReader

With thousands of titles and not a lot of book shelving at home it is no wonder why this is on the list. I have been doing a lot of reading this month. I reread “The Fault in Our Stars.”

Yeah, I still cried. But, I also picked up the “Harry Potter” series and more “Game of Thrones” on it pretty cheap. As well as more Tolkien. It is a free app and the books are decently priced.

4. E.L.F. HD Powder

Best $6 ever spent. This stuff is fantastic! My makeup really stays put and it doesn’t make you feel all heavy faced. It even can set your eye shadow! To read my full review click here

3. My Inability to not make a meme at one point or another of something.

wpid-20150325_154243.jpg

There was a massive spider around my house and so I made this one below.

Lord of the rings. Trouble with spiders.Wouldn’t be a great day without a LOTR meme.

YOU SHALL NOT PASS

 

2. Maxi skirts!

Maxi skirts!Yeah, I have really been loving maxi skirts! And why not? They just make you feel like a princess. And you can give some skirt attitude when walking away with a overly dramatic twirl. But, really maxi skirts are just amazing! They are great for any season. Especially if they are tulle like the skirt on the left. If you want to check out the original posts you can see them here and here .

1. This Dress from Lookbook.

white dress, orange heels, and pink bag

This dress white I wore last week was inspired from a Pin that I saw of Miranda Kerr, I wrote about it on my post Wednesday White Dress, Pinterest inspired. I have to say ,it is my favorite dress that I own so far and it was one of my favorite blog posts to date. I got the dress from Lookbook online and am so glad that I did!  It is an amazing dress! So affordable too! Check it out here!

So, there are my Friday Favorites for March! What do you think?

2 cups of coffee ,ootd, and thunderstorms.

 

Hi there my friends! What a wonderful day it is! It is close to being 90 degrees today and today was a day I chose to wear a long sleeve Express button shirt. I have worn that shirt on the ole blog before. I just love shopping my closet! Anyway, I figured since thunderstorms are on the horizon for today’s forecast it would be cool enough to do my pics and not die. Buh.  Not only was it hot it is muggy. The storms? Hiding.

Today the outfit is a mix of royal blue, white, and teal/turquoise.  I decided to revisit the amazing skirt I bought from sheinside that I wore here in this post : Outfit of the day, Kensie inspired.   and I have also paired it with basic H&M tees.

IMG_3861.JPG

I think this would be a great work outfit. And yes, it works for chasing a tiny child in. I do that quite a lot and in heels.

I do really love this skirt. It can run a bit small so you may want to order it a size up. The button down from Express is one of my faves. I love their blouses!! And I paired with the outfit some cute Michael Antonio sandals and a statement necklace from H&M.

What do you think?

Mint green, navy, and maxi skirt obsession.

Hi there friends!! Happy Wednesday!! Today I am running late with the blog post, sorry. Normally I am a naptime writer. I write during a tiny child’s nap. Which works well. But, my outfit of the day post is very late today and here is the culprit. #catlogic

wpid-wp-1427312718586.jpeg

Yeah, I had everything laid out and ready to go for the day. I was finishing up my daily morning workout and then saw this booger. WHAT A BRAT CAT!

And then I finally got the furball off my clothes and was so busy chasing a tiny child around I forgot to post the blog. I forgot to take pictures, until around 4pm. YAY! MOTHERHOOD! WOOO! (sorry I am insanely caffeinated and downed a bowl of mint choc chip ice cream before dinner)

wpid-20150325_114804.jpgThis is what was mostly today. Sand, buried tiny child, and temper tantrums. Lots of temper tantrums. Oh it is fun to be 2.

So now that, that is out of the way. I am promising some great pictures. And a lot of talking. Happy Wordy Wednesday folks!

I am really into maxi skirts this week. I mean I really love them! And what is not to love about them? They are easy to style and if you do not feel like wearing shorts,pants, or something else maxi skirts are a way to go. It doesn’t matter how tall you are, IMO. People shy away due to that sometimes.

The maxi skirt I am wearing is one that has been frequenting the blog since fall. I just love it and bought it on sale at ShabbyApple online. I love the flow of it and how feminine it is. This skirt can transition from day to night so easily and that earns it a high five!

What do you think?

I love how twirly this skirt is!! I feel I could just play around all day! The color of the skirt is so bright and I love it. I just couldn’t decide which shoes to wear. The skirt has a elastic waist and has 2 layers of tulle and one lining layer. It is actually very comfortable.  And this skirt fun to chase the tiny child around in and he thinks it is funny to hide in it. What do you think of tulle skirts?

Skirt: Tulle skirt here and I like this tulle skirt from Shabby Apple here .

Shoes: Blink here and I like these too.

And I have been eyeballing these freaking socks on Pinterest for a while and got them! Gryffindor!! Well, I’ll post a picture of them once I get them.

Manicure Monday

It’s nap time!! YAY! OK, so it is time to post another blog post today. And since it is Manicure Monday I am going to show off my “Elsa” mani from this weekend and my revisit of Nicole Gumdrops.

Frozen “Elsa” mani.

Color Show "frozen over" Sally Hansen Hypnautical

I have been watching a lot of Frozen lately. Tiny child loves that movie. So, it inspired me to do a Elsa manicure.  I went to my polishes and found a Maybelline Color Show polish in “Frozen Over“. It is a pretty baby blue color and it has some pearliness too it. I used two coats. Over my ORLY  “top 2 bottom”. I then topped it with 2 coats of Sally Hansen Triple shine in “Hypnautical“. Topped with Sally Hansen Mega Shine top coat.

wpid-20150320_182748.jpg

And ORLY has released a  Frozen collection. YAY! Going to get some! $7 a bottle or $11 a duo.

Revisiting Nicole Gumdrops Cinna-Man of my dreams

Nicole by OPI: Cinna-Man of My dreams

I am not normally a fan of textured polish. It has a tendency to get on my nerves. It is the bumpy texture that gets to me. I used 3 coats on a ORLY top 2 bottom base. It is such a pretty color, weird texture or not.

Nicole Gumdrops Cinna-Man of my dreams

It goes on easily.

Sunburn, forgotten dress, and oh yeah, Monday.

Hi there and happy Manic Monday everyone. It is an awesome day here in this house. My tiny child is experiencing the terrible twos. He is going through some stuff right now. And it must be hard being so little and not being able to communicate what is wrong so well. Patience will be a big thing here.

And it is all gloomy and rainy out today. I also have one Hell of a sunburn. Lesson learned, I do not do well in sun. Which I already knew. Last night I got hardly any sleep, as my back was in serious pain and itchy. So, it is a many cup of coffee kind of day.

Today on the good ole blog I want to show a dress that I bought from Sheinside last year. This dress I got in September but I don’t believe I have worn it. It was just sitting in my closet. I couldn’t remember why I never wore it. So since it is so yucky and gloomy out I figured I would brighten things up.

wpid-20150323_102159.jpg


I love how bright the bottom of the dress is.

IMG_3636.JPG

IMG_3633.JPG

IMG_3641.JPG

IMG_3642.JPG

The dress came with a yellow sash to tie around but I am TERRIBLE at tying bows. Except on Christmas presents. So, the belt is one that I purchased from sheinside as well. OK, the shipping takes a bit but the clothes are so affordable.

wpid-20150323_102305.jpg

I just can’t figure out if I like the dress or not. In the pictures on their website it is so cute. What do you think of the dress?

Dress: Sheinside here $17

Belt: here $8

Shoes: Blink here (runs small order half size up) part of a bogo sale. use code BOGO. I also like these ALDO heels here

wpid-20150323_103000.jpg

OK, so the sunburn won my fashion indecisiveness. I am FREEEZING. So much that I had to add an extra “E” to the word. And this Target sweater is so soft, my back is in love with it. And of course some yoga pants.

wpid-20150323_103048.jpg

MMM coffee.

How is your Monday? Let me know what you think of the dress!

Saturday beach day and fun!

Hi there my friends! Hope you are having a great Saturday!  Today we ventured to Daytona Beach for some much needed sun and sand. Well so we thought.

wpid-20150321_133801.jpg

Yuck fog. It was foggy only on the beach.

wpid-wp-1426975956490.jpeg

Fog selfie Saturday. Would have some better pictures but I was too busy chasing after a tiny child. So here is a picture of my feet and ocean. I am also showcasing my awesome couch injury on my foot. My sofa attacked me.

wpid-20150321_140419.jpg

I tried to get some reading done. Nope didn’t happen. Not with a tiny child running around.Yeah it was not the sunniest day out. Until around 2 or 3pm.

Then…

wpid-wp-1426975728362.jpeg

Yay! There was sun!! There it is!! I am also a burnt piece of bacon now. Ouch!

And Happy Caturday!

Fab Jumpsuit Friday.

Hi there friends Happy Friday and happy first day of spring! YAY!

I am trying to post this while hoping my tiny child takes his nap. Which nope, he isn’t. Good for me! He is wide awake. Super.  Today’s post is about a new As U Wish jumper that I bought from Nordstrom Rack. I have a great love of jumpers now. I wanted one last summer and just never got around to getting one. And I took the jump into jumperdom. This jumper is great for day or night. Just switch the flats for heels and viola! I can also be lazy and not wear a necklace if I want, as it has a pretty gold embellishment.

IMG_3265.JPGIMG_3271-0.JPGIMG_3605.JPGAnd I still love my hat from EXPRESS.So cute. (Downside to the hat, everything sticks to it!)

IMG_3604.JPG

OK, so I will have to get another jumper. These are so comfortable and just great for days you are in a hurry and really don’t want to over think your outfit! Great mom uniform.

Steal the style:

Jumper: As U Wish Similar here

Shoes: Justfab.com similar here

Hat: Express Runway similar here

And now I am going to scarf down a bowl of ice cream. MMMMM!

Wednesday White Dress, Pinterest inspired.

Hi there my friends how the heck are you after the festivities yesterday? Me? I am doing pretty good. I partied hard last night with a big bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream. I know I am such a rebel.


Today on this ole blog, we are looking at white for spring. A color I typically shy away from. This is most in part to I have a toddler and I tend to spill EVERYTHING that could possibly stain on it. White pants, I love them but gosh do I spill spaghetti on them EVERY FREAKING TIME! Without fail people. Without fail.

But, I am trying this adorable white dress from the Lookbook Store. I bought the dress online after seeing something similar on Miranda Kerr .I saw it a while ago while wasting time on Pinterest. I wanted a dress like hers but without the price tag. And I found it! YAY!

IMG_3247.JPGIMG_3229.JPG
Here is the original dress.

Miranda Kerr

Original source: PacificCoastNews.com

 

Of course this was apparently from 2012. Who cares? The dress is CUTE!

 

 

Steal the style:

Dress: Lookbook here The dress has a zip back. When ordering always take measurements. I have had good success, tape measures can be a life saver.

Shoes: Blink Brenda- color Brandi here elig for bogo!

Purse: COACH(old) similar here

Makeup is the Marsk eyeshadow and NYX butter lippy. Used the Chella pencil around my lips and under my eyes. Reviews on ipsy bag here

Ipsy March Glambag Unboxing The Floral Fantasy

Hi there everyone! It is that time again!! It is time to unbox my Ipsy March Glambag!! I love it when I see that shiny pink bubble wrapped package in the mail! It just makes my day!

wpid-20150317_130406.jpg

This month’s theme is Floral fantasy. Although I don’t see a true correlation between products and the theme. The bag is floral in print.

wpid-img_20150317_130523.jpg

Look at those GOODIES! YAY! I love this, it is like a treat for me. I get to try new products and pamper myself. Which is super necessary right now with this whole potty training the tiny child thing going on. We will get the hang of it, eventually.  But, for now, let’s focus on this Glambag!

healthy sexy hair Soy Renewal Crème Oil.

wpid-20150317_130804.jpg

The product I was ecstatic to see in the glam bag this time was the healthy sexy hair Soy Renewal Crème oil. I have already been using one of there products that I bought recently and talked about on my healthy hair journey post . I can not wait to try it!

This styling cream is made of soy, cocoa, and argan oil. It is a lightweight conditioner and moisturizer that makes hair feel and look healthier.  In the Ipsy Glambag it was a 1fl oz.

These products range around $20+

Apply to damn hair and blow dry. (I always worry about that, I always look like a puff ball.)

NYX Butter lipstick (little Suzie)

wpid-20150317_130710.jpg

I love the butter lip balm and already love the NYX butter lipstick. It is so silky and smooth you forget you have lipstick on and then remember once you smear it. Oops.

$6 for that satin finish and sexiness in a tube. Can be purchased at Sephora and Target.

Chella Ivory Lace highlighter pencil.

wpid-20150317_130822.jpg

This neutral pencil brightens the eye area when applied to the brow bone, dark circles, blemishes, and red spots.

Can even what they call “open” the eye by applying it to the lash line. I do this when I have really tired eyes. Normally I use a white pencil or even on occasion white eyeshadow. It really works. And this product I tried today and yeah it works! $18 for this stick of multi-use glory. Also works for keeping your lip gloss and lip sticks in place. Apply right by the lower lip and in the cupid’s bow. Blend with your finger and apply lipstick. Works like a charm.

Dr. Brandt skincare Pores no more Anti-aging crème

wpid-20150317_130830.jpg

OK, this one used apple stem cells(stay with me) to help “delay” the aging process of your skin. Has retinol to help promote cell turnover and improves fine lines and wrinkles  while mattifying and  reducing pores. Oil free.

$60 for 1.7 oz tube

Marsk Mineral eyeshadow (Lucky Penny)

wpid-20150317_130720.jpg

This little bugger was a pain to get into. I ruined my nail polish trying to get into this thing. Which may not be a big deal to some but for me, it is. I rarely get time to do my nails fully with chasing after a tiny child. He tries to “help”, love it but I get lots of interesting manicures. Anyway, Marsk mineral eyeshadow is 100%natural and made of a mineral based powder. Okay. They are strictly cruelty free and offer many high pigmented shades of shadow. Can be used wet or dry. $22.50 per pot. And yes it is high pigmented!

wpid-20150317_140125.jpg

As you can see here on my hand it is really shiny and sparkly. I just used a little bit. Good stuff.

Not bad Ipsy. Not bad at all. Did you like your Ipsy bag this month?
