Denim Dress

Denim dresses are no new trend, they've been around a long time and have been designed & worn many different ways. Some of those ways may put many Americans to shame, like the one my mother wore when I was 6...dreadful. Lucky for us, we've seen some great denim dresses this year that were up to par. I happened to pick 2 up for myself a few months ago and I love them, one is a very fitted shift dress with 3/4 sleeves and the other is a strapless tie dye denim. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that everyone needs a denim dress, it is my new closet staple. So I've taken the hard part out and already chose 5 denim dresses that can be very versatile. Best part? All are under $60! 

Denim Dress



Each one of these dresses can be dressed up or down, for day or night. 
**Work Appropriate (depending on your job)- Add a blazer or cardigan with color, sleek jewelry...statement necklaces for the more daring, and nude heels. As you can see, #5 is already acceptable for most jobs. 
**For Play- Chucks or other type of sneaker, neon jewelry, and a fun bag. 
**Night Out- I think the denim/chiffon mixed material dresses are great for nights. Put on a pair of strappy heels or platform wedges, delicate jewelry with a fun piece or 2 thrown in, and a clutch. Not sure I went with all the black in the photo below...what do you think? 
**Daytime Errands- Oxfords/flats in a pretty color or print, fedora, and a bright handbag.
Here's what I come up with using 4 of the dresses from above...

Here comes the broken record cause I will say it again. These dresses are so versatile that any of them can be styled for day or night. With layers they will easily take you into fall/winter as well. How do you wear your denim dress? What did you think about the 4 looks and which is your favorite?

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…
