OOTD: Pink Shorts and Statement Necklace


It's official- my closet is completely unpacked and organized! After living in an array of gym shorts and over-sized t-shirts that I had made available during the move, I'm happy to have my complete wardrobe and all my accessories available again.

Wet n' Wild Color Icon Palette in Comfort Zone


Last Friday, I posted a FOTD where I used the Wet n' Wild Color Icon Palette in Comfort Zone to create a warm, copper eye look. I received a few comments about the eye shadow palette, so I decided to provide a review (with swatches) on this bargain buy.

FOTD: Warm Copper Eye

My makeup is finally unpacked! I've been working with the bare minimum lately (if I'm wearing any makeup at all). I was a little short on time this morning, so instead of experimenting with makeup, I stuck to an eye look I know I like. This warm, rosy copper eye look is my go-to eye look when using the Wet n' Wild Comfort Zone Palette.

NOTD: Essie First Timer

My nails were in need of some major TLC. I've been busy moving- packing and unpacking- for the last two weeks and it has destroyed all (but two) of my nails. I'm officially moved in and most of the heavy lifting is done! I just need to finish unpacking and organizing, then I can decorate! 


In the meantime, I couldn't let another day go by with my nails in such disrepair! I was able to locate the (clearly labeled) box containing my nail supplies, so I set aside time to clean up my nails and apply a fresh coat of a fun polish.

25 (Random) Things About Me Tag


I was tagged to do the 25 Random Things About Me Tag or the 25 Facts About Me Tag by Penny Rose at Pink and Petals and Pauline at Addicted to Makeup. Thank you both for tagging me! I'll admit, it was a challenge to come up with 25 things that most of you don't know about me, and who knows, you may even discover we have a few things in common.

Products I've Used Up- July 2013 Empties!

I enjoy Products I've Used Up posts because you usually get a munch of mini reviews from them. I've wanted to do one for a while, but it's been difficult for me to remember to save my empties (which is a fancy way to say trash). Even after I officially started saving them, I still managed to toss a few... oops.  


If you'd like to see what I've used up and what want to re-purchase, keep reading!

BaubleBar Jewelry Haul & Review


I have a slight jewelry addiction. It's a weakness, but I'm usually good about just looking and not buying jewelry from the internet. I generally like to be able to see and feel the quality for myself before buying something online.


I've been browsing BaubleBar.com off and on for a while now, and I just recently made my first purchase. Although I had been very skeptical, I'm really impressed with the quality of the jewelry and the care taken in packaging. All in all, I'm so glad I broke down and made this first purchase! Keep reading to find out what I like about BaubleBar, and to see what I purchased.

Collective Makeup and Body Haul


I've been setting aside some beauty purchases from the past several weeks to do a collective haul for all of you. I've only been getting a couple items at a time from a few different stores, but it does add up.

NOTD: Essie In the Cab-ana

Can I pick a favorite of the month this early? I'm loving my current nail color. I gave myself a mani and pedi and polished my nails using Essie In The Cab-ana from the Resorts Collection 2013 that I hauled in June.


See what color I paired with this pretty blue by reading on!

Summer Clothing Haul


So it's summer time and it's officially ridiculously hot. Aside from the increase in temperature during the summer, the weather in Florida is pretty consistently warm. This means that I wear the same clothes all year long. While I like having just one wardrobe, I also like to pick up a few new things for summer. I was looking to add a little pop of color and a few key basics, particularly new tops.


Today, I have a collective clothing haul with items I purchased from JCrew, Target, Marshals, Ross, and TJ Max.
