Color Combo Series #2

Today's color combination is PURPLE & ORANGE! I know that a couple of months ago I said the whole tangerine fiasco wasn't my thing, but it's really growing on me. I seriously need to order some orange something because I only have a couple things. I've created a few outfits to give you some inspiration on this trend...
Purple & Orange

Outfit #1- I love this look. You can wear it to dinner, on a date, even to the office as long as you keep the blazer on. There are some touches of turquoise in the jewelry and the handbag to compliment those AWESOME beaded heels. You could also dress this down by adding a rocker tee and combat/moto boots.

Outfit #2- A loose top is comfortable (especially on hot days) and when paired with high waist pleated shorts it ups the style factor. One thing I hate is seeing a woman in all over loose fitting clothes. You can avoid looking frumpy by keeping either the top or bottom more fitted. These shorts will still be a tad loose but the cut fits closer to the body, that's why this works. To balance it out I kept the accessories on the chunky side. 

Outfit #3- Doesn't this make you want to go to a music festival, or any outdoorsy festival? This look is totally boho from the palazzo pants to the jewelry, to the handbag, and the denim bolero. 

I am definitely trying this color combination out in the near future. 1 thing I've realized while doing this post...I need to get those beaded heels!

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…
