Sittin' On The Dock

Some of you may have already figured this out, but I can be a little slow at times. I was doing the calculations in my head the other day and realized that HEY, IT'S MARCH PEOPLE!!! In 3 months (give or take) it will be time for toes in the sand and pina coladas in hand. I plan on being at the beach atleast once a week since it's only an hour drive, so I need to start preparing and browsing swim suits. 

Last year I bought this bikini from Victoria's Secret...
Love it, very feminine and cute

 Well here's the back of
Cheeky Bottom
 In the description of the bikini bottom it should have said "CAUTION: If you have a small backside then you will not have a problem, BUT if you do have a booty on ya then half of it will be visible to all around you." Well guess what? I'm a small girl yes but I do have a booty, you can ask my people if ya don't believe. I only wore this bikini to the lake twice but this year it's going to the beach with me! I love it and the colors are great on me (more coral in person than hot pink) so it's time to get brave. 

My Beach Prep:
1. I will be starting P90X (for the 2nd time) on Monday. The program is 3 months long so it's perfect timing for me. Along with this workout, I also do Zumba and Pilates a few times a week (not on Ab Ripper days). If you've never done's a great program but damn it will kill you in the
2. With my workout programs I do a meal replacement smoothie/shake for lunch usually every other day. 
3. Continue on with eating healthy and I try my best to keep this habit all year round. -NO fast food, which isn't hard because Italy doesn't really have that option. -Cut back on the pop/soda/coke/whatever else you may call it. 
4. And last not definitely NOT least, find me some more bikinis. So here are just a few that I like from Victoria's Secret.

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…
