December Date Night

December 11, 2017

Dress // Vest {similar here, here & here} // Boots {similar here & here} // Lipstick // Bracelet // Purse

Many of you have probably seen the dress in today's post on your favorite bloggers. It's been featured everywhere, and now I'm happy to report that I've joined the bandwagon. There's nothing I love more than a well-fitted, casual LBD, so when I found this little number, I just had to pick it up. Luckily (ahem, not for our wedding budget), I spent just a little too much at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and had a few Notes to spend. If you don't have Nordstrom credit, no worries...It comes in just under $60, and is ideal for date night! While it is the holiday season, my fiancĂ© adores me in all black, so I always try to oblige when we head out for a night of dinner and drinks. I felt the addition of a faux fur vest added the perfect wintery touch. All details are listed above.

Gifts for the Beauty Lover

December 05, 2017

Well, friends, it's December...and that means one thing - gift giving time! Today's post is for the beauty lover in your life. The following are some of my favorite products, many of which I use on a daily basis. Simply click the image to shop! 

Too Faced Naturals Palette: This is my go-to palette for work and weekend! The colors are creamy and easy to blend, and ridiculously wearable. There's nothing worse than a palette that has useless colors. 

Drybar "High Tops" Rollers: Drybar products have quickly become a favorite of mine, and I implicitly trust their products. I love velcro rollers because they are heatless and user-friendly. With these, I can extend my blowout several days (or even do my own DIY on a weekend). 

Big Hair To Go: This kit includes some of Drybar's best sellers, one of them being the Lemon Drop hairbrush. I'm not quite sure how to articulate the superiority of this brush but my word, it's so good! My hair is detangled and shiny with one swipe. I'm also obsessed with Triple Sec. It's like a dry shampoo and hair spray all in one, and keeps my hair looking fresh and styled for days. Sidebar: It extended my last blowout 5 days!!!

Tarte Brushes: While best known for their 24-hour amazonian clay blush and foundation, Tarte's makeup brushes are super high quality for an affordable price. They're cruelty-free and very soft. All it takes is a few buffs on the face, and you'll be looking flawless. Same can be said for their shade brushes, which are included in this holiday set.

Kevyn Aucion Concealer: This stuff is amazing! If you've been a reader for a while, you know all too well about my hereditary dark circles. I adore Tarte's shape tape but this concealer has covered my bags on even the worst days. I wear it every day. 

Stila Liquid Lipstick: Great long-wear formula without the dryness! I own several colors, and Ulta/Sephora always has them on sale for around $12, so my collection keeps growing. 

Kat von D Liner: This is a cult-classic for a reason, and woman of all ages will love it! This will give you the blackest of black line with ease of application. One swipe and you're done. 

It Cosmetics CC Cream: Whether your a foundation lover or totally anti-base, It Cosmetics' CC cream offers weightless, full coverage. It was originally created for more mature skin but it truly ideal for all skin types. I wear it almost daily, and so does my mom!

Invisibobble Hair Ties: This was a recommendation by my BFF and I haven't looked back since. These strange looking hair ties will hold your pony in place but leave no indentation. They're truly unique, and provide a solid improvement on one of life's little necessities. 

Happy gifting!
