   Where do my readers live? Is it so hot that you don't want to cook, clean, get dressed, or move from in front of the AC? That's exactly how I'm feeling and I know the pregnancy contributes to a lot of that, but WOWZERS! I keep saying that it's usually not in the 90's in June here (and I know I'm wrong) but my 7 1/2 month belly makes the temperature seem more like 110. Just think though, we'll be moving to Florida next month, I know it has to be more humid and hot there than here! I'm looking at the glass half full because the beach is only going to be like 15 minutes away as opposed to the 45 minute drive now. Which by the way I'm taking complete advantage of my empty schedule tomorrow to hit up the beach and cool off in the ocean.

   From now until August my goal is to wear the least amount of clothes as possible and still look good. Granted my choices are limited right now since the movers have already taken most of our household goods, but I'm working with what I have. I'll actually try to get an outfit pic of today's maternity look so I can share it tomorrow. I did a quick round up of dresses, skirts, and a few accessories that are fab for this weather. For me this time of year is definitely not the time to wear many fitted items that are going to cling to my body and make my body temperature increase by 10

Beat the Heat of Summertime

   During summer the beach is always on my mind and as you can see, the colors above show that in greens, blues, and oranges. My favorite piece from here has to be the orange animal dress from TopShop, then I would say the denim RL skirt because it's classic & all American for the upcoming 4th of July. Also, did you see the super cute headbands? I have yet to find one that actually looks good on me...that's my new mission when I hit the American malls again in a few months.

   What are your favorite summer outfits to beat the heat?

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…
