Feelin Like Mrs. Martha...

Martha as in Martha Stewart minus the jail time. 

The thought just occurred to me that I'll be living in Italy for another year and a half, which means that we've already been here for 2 1/2 years. So no wonder I have an itch to redecorate. Even though we really never decorated too much in the first place because the landlord won't let us paint our walls, yes it sucks. Plus I'm not the greatest interior decorator so we'll see what happens. Anyway, I'm leaning toward artsy, modern, glam, or a combination.

I'm waiting on my new entertainment center to get here, it's very similar to this one


All those little cubbies give me plenty of room to add whatever decor items I've got a feel for. Here's a peek at what I've got my eye on at the moment (all from Amazon)...
White Ceramic Owl here

Roman Arch Bookends here

Liberty Bronze Stallion here

I figured that so far that's a good start. Of course I'll need a few more odds and ends statues/vases to display since the only real book collection (as in tangible books and not digitally stored on my Kindle) I have is the Twilight series. 


In my redecoration process I'm also thinking about the bedroom, the hallway, and the stair case. But if I told you all my ideas there would be no surprise element. Although I can't keep it a secret too long because I'm exploding with pure excitement! That being said, I'll be a cheater and show you bits and pieces as we go. 
PS- I've also got some DIY tutorials that I'll be trying out
PSS- Did I mention how freakin' excited I am to get this going? YIPPIE!

E.L.F. Cosmetic Brushes...Fave or Fail?

Admittedly I've been using the same Mary Kay makeup brushes for a while now, along with a few other random brands thrown in. I was just satisfied with my MK brushes because they washed well and have help up for a really long time. But it was definitely time for a whole new set and I had trouble making up my mind on which makeup brushes to try. At first my plan was to snag a few from different companies to see what I liked best, but then E.L.F. Cosmetics had a 50% off sale with free shipping over $35. Naturally I had to give it a shot since I was getting so much bang for my buck. I already knew that I wasn't too fond of their cheaper $1 brushes so I opted for the Studio Line which ranges from $3-$10 and I'd heard great reviews. All together I got 15 brushes (1 didn't make it to the picture) for only $37, definitely a steal! Keep reading to find out if it was worth it. 
















 I am extremely pleased with these E.L.F makeup brushes. The only one that I'm not too fond of woul…

Gracelynn Rose Designs & GIVEAWAY

Today I'm very excited to introduce everyone to Gracelynn Rose Designs! The owner, Stephanie, is one of my closest and dearest friends that I consider more of a sister. The first time we met it was instant friendship, now we've known each other for 5 years. Even though we're currently thousands of miles apart it's as if we never left.


Stephanie has been designing her own jewelry since 2001 and selling it to customers along with a few stores. Each design is her own, delicately handcrafted, and unique. She did an entire jewelry line based on Twilight (which of course I loved every piece) that was so beautiful AND she sold a line of pearl & crystal bracelets to David's Bridal and those were stunning.

For my birthday Stephanie sent me a pair of earrings in the mail and I fell in love with them and wear them every chance I get. Might I add that they are 1 of a kind, not another pair like them...



It's obvious that my girl is super talented and I'm so proud of h…

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...



1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…
