Sporty Spice

The sporty chic trend has been around for a few years now, but it's just now really catching my attention and making me want to rock it. Maybe it's because of the neon colors that have been paired with this trend...or...maybe I just want to try something new. I'm sure you noticed some of the sporty looks at the S/S '12 Fashion Shows, a few of those designers were Victoria Beckham, Alexander Wang, and Rag & Bone.

Note to everyone...let's avoid looking like we should be on a high fashion playing field with the Packers or like we're going scuba diving in the pacific. Don't get me wrong, I like the whole scuba inspired idea but it needs to comes in small doses. Here are a couple outfits I put together (and need to buy)...
Sporty Trend





1. Team Color- I still haven't braved the sweatpants in public thing, but this look is making me reconsider. I mean this has to be one of the most comfortable cottony polished looks. The bright yellow tank that is played up by the neon bow on the shoe, and I put a structured pink bag for some more color along with sophistication.

2. Monochromatic Team Player- Obviously this is the more minimalist version of the sporty trend. Keeping it all in the greys keeps it sleek, business appropriate, and versatile. The dress is a sweatshirt material so it's just as comfortable as the first look. You could easily take this look so many places by changing out the shoes and accessories or layering a blazer/denim shirt on top.

I love both of these looks and will be digging through my closet to see if I have anything that can contribute to this trend. Have you rocked this trend? I would love to see photos if so, you can add your links in the comments OR do it here.

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…

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…

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…
