Final Color Combo Series (#5)

Growing up, we all played princess on a daily basis (I still do) and had tea parties with great and noble teddy bears. When asked "what is your favorite color," the reply was always PINK & PURPLE. So ladies, today we are reliving our childhood with 2 ever popular girlish hues. 
Pink & Purple

Outfit #1- Not the princess outfit you were expecting huh? These purple & pink dyed shorts are shouting inspiration at me. This could possibly be a DIY post in the future, that's IF I'm brave enough to take on the dye process. Pairing it with a rocker/band tee and Dr. Martens kinda says "hey you, i'm sort of a bad ass." Don't you think? You could dress the shorts up with a white blouse that ties at the neck and some pretty wedges or platforms. 

Outfit #2- Here's the look suited for a beautiful princess. A high low skirt typically suits all shapes and sizes, and don't forget to tuck in your tank to accentuate your waistline. I love the contrast of the pale pink and dark purple together. Maroon also goes well with this color combo and I think it adds a little more lux-glam to the outfit. Go with a statement necklace and keep the rest of the jewelry simple. 

Outfit #3- Here's a subtle way to add in more colors to your outfits. Pick one color to showcase in your clothing and add the other in with your accessories. White denim here, because we've all dug them out of the deep dark pits of the closet for spring. Have you noticed the necklace yet? The outfit overall is very cutesy-girly, so I threw in a pistol...haha. 

Doing this color combination series has been a lot of fun for me. I'm a very visual person, so when I can create ideas in my head and share them with you it's exciting. Now I'm trying to think of what type of series post I can do next! If you have any ideas that you would like to see on my blog shoot me an email.

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…

Post Baby Body...Planning Ahead

I'm over half way to meeting our new little princess! At this stage in the pregnancy I'm also thinking about anything and everything having to do with a 3rd child and all the changes that will be happening in my house. Quite honestly, I'm freaking out a little. Of course I'm doing all the typical things parents do when prepping for a new arrival, but I've also decided to take the time to focus on myself while I still can. 

   27 weeks pregnant, which means in 13 weeks or less I will be meeting our new tiny princess. One of the things women typically worry about with pregnancy is the ever so dreaded weight gain that comes with the territory. I can happily say that I've done extremely well with this pregnancy and so far only had a 12 pound gain. But as we all know, the 3rd trimester tends to have the largest weight gain. Since I probably won't have a ton of extra down time once the baby arrives, I've decided to go ahead and start planning to lose the ba…

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…
