Weekend Makeup


I'm feeling bright oranges lately. Since I started working for myself, I rarely do a "full face" anymore unless it's for a shoot. Today I decided to do it just for fun! I bought the new Birds of Paradise palette by Colourpop and think it's one of my recent favorites.

Snake Rattle and Roll


Jewel tones are here! I picked up this beautiful skirt at Target last week and couldn't wait to pair it with my new ShoeDazzle booties! As a #ShoeDazzlePartner, I've been really excited for their fall Boot Shop and these may be my favorite so far!

Spot On


I'm so picky with my flats, but when I find the perfect ones, it's like heaven. I recently picked these out from ShoeDazzle and I love them. Pair them with simple jeans and a cozy sweater, and you're ready for fall!

Fall Beauty Faves


I don't know about y'all, but fall for me means that I wear slightly more makeup than I do in the summer. Thanks to sweaty, humid Chicago months, I tend to skip the full face and just opt for a mascara and BB cream. But here we are, it's November already, and I have some new fall beauty favorites coming your way.

Happy Halloween


It's finally here! My favorite holiday! This year I really slacked on Halloween — I normally end up with 2-3 costumes for the season. This year, things were so busy after our travels and getting back to work that I just simply did not make enough time. I was, however, able to whip up a last minute Janet look this weekend after a visit to the thrift store. I've recently been re-watching The Good Place and she's totally my favorite character! My boyfriend has his Jianyu/Jason costume ready to go and we'll be putting Janet's unlimited knowledge to good use tonight at trivia! What are you for Halloween this year?

Pumpkin Spiced


Everyone likes to make fun of pumpkin spice being "basic," but you know what? I love pumpkin spice! I actually great up in a very small town that celebrated mid-October by shutting down the town and hosting the Circleville Pumpkin Show. So, yeah — I have a soft spot for all of that orange, cinnamon, tasty goodness. What's your favorite fall flavor?

Bucket List


I often hear people talking about bucket lists. And honestly, I've never really thought of mine! Do you? My big things were always: I want to get a dog (check!), I want to tattoo (check!), I want to move to California, and travel more. Japan and Korea are at the very top of my must-visit list. What about you? What are you big goals, short term and long term?

Here For the Boo-ts


Can you believe we're already nearing the end of October? Fall days like these make me so happy — it's cool enough for a cozy sweater and boots, but during the daytime I can get away with a cute skirt. I love my neighborhood this time of year — lots of pumpkins and skeletons and Halloween decor! I couldn't wait to wear my new ShoeDazzle Kaytlyn Faux Fur Booties to take Opal on walk. As a #ShoeDazzlePartner, I picked these boots for their comfort and cute style. You can become a ShoeDazzle VIP and get styles starting at $39.95. Don't miss their new selection for the season!




Goodbye San Diego


After spending so much time in California, it was difficult to say goodbye! We filled our last day with a trip to the zoo, and following that with good food and ice cream. A last evening of family time before re-packing for the morning flight. I love California more each time I visit, and this was no exception! Hopefully we'll be back very soon to see more of you.

Juice


What were you favorite concerts and shows you attended this year? I think my biggest and most exciting were the two days of BTS — but I've gotta say that the Lizzo show a couple months ago was amazing! I wanted an excuse to wear neon neon NEON and this was the best excuse to do so!
