ARTWORK FOR SALE!

Before I let my entire youtube following know, I wanted to let all of you that follow my website know first.  You guys are so loyal and amazing and sometimes I feel like you deserve a first look at what I am doing!  If you follow me on Instagram then you have seen some of my artwork! I have so much fun doing art… and it's been a passion of mine ever since I was little.  I wouldn't consider myself the best artist in the world.. but I truly enjoy it and that is why I do it!  When I posted some of my pieces on instagram a lot of people said they would love to have it on their walls.. or even as a color book!  I did some research and found an amazing website that allows me to sell prints, canvases, cell phone cases, lap top skins, pillows, mugs… etc.  So fun right!? I was so excited to share this with all of you!

For those of you interested in a coloring book… I decided to make some prints black and white so if you want, you can color them yourself to match your room or kids room.  There will be more added as time goes on, but for now I only have 4 pieces on there.  

As for cellphone cases and things like that, not all artwork works on them, (Composition and size wise) so you may not be able to find all the art for every item available.

I will let you guys know when I add more work!  As for now, I hope you enjoy it and check it out!

Must Have Summer Lip Colors!

Lately I have been all about bold lips, especially bright pinks!  Summer is such a fun time to sport some fun different lip shades and so far these are the ones I have been pulling for this year!  

NYX Lipstick in Hot Pink Rose - This is a nice RICH and pigmented hot pink! I love pairing this with a similar gloss shade or lighten it up with a nude gloss if I don't want it to be too in your face! Such a fun bright color! 

NYX Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler - This reminds me of a liquid version of my favorite lipstick called See Sheer by MAC.  This is just a little different in that it's a little brighter and richer in pigment.  It's also shinier like a gloss would be.  

Jordana Twist and Shine Balm Stain in Tropical Frenzy - I like this because its a little on the sheer side so its not overly bright.  It's nice for those days when you want a little bit of a pop of color but not something too over powering.  It's also great because it stains your lips so the color lasts all day!

L'Oreal Infallable 8hr Le Gloss in Barely Nude - This is just a simple nude mauve shade so in reality this isn't just for "summer" but its what I have been pulling for lately.  I love this shade because it's not an overly pale nude so it gives a little bit of color to your lips but it's still good for those "natural makeup days" we often do in the summer.

YSL Volupté Sheer Candy 62H601 - I have had this coral shade forever and I love it.  A sweet subscriber sent it to me and it's one of my favorite lip products I own.  I love this because again… it's sheer but gives JUST enough pop to your lips.  These kind of products are great for summer because you don't need a mirror to apply them.  You just pop them on and you are good to go.  Great for a pool or beach bag! 

Here are the swatches in order from above.  Let me know in the comments what your favorite summer lip colors are this year?? I would love to try out some new shades.. especially some drugstore shades!  List them below and maybe you will be the next

Have a fabulous day!


Benefit - They're Real Push-Up Liner

Benefit - They're Real Push-Up Liner Review and First Impressions

I was so excited when I received this in the mail from Benefit. I love the mascara from this line so trying this out was something I was VERY eager to do. This product is very unique and something I have never seen before. The tip is a angled rubber tip with a hole where the gel liner pushes through. The tip is very pointy and reminds me a lot of a calligraphy pen.  

When first opening this product and tested it on my hand I was really happy with how dark it was.  I also liked that it dried matte and it didn't have that wet sheen to it that some liquid liners have.  It also did not smudge at all once it dried which was a major plus!

When using it on my eye it was a little more difficult.  I feel like this product is something that requires some practice… but once you have it down it works pretty well!  My eye shape (slightly portruding) is very difficult to do winged eyeliner on and they require a really tiny brush to get a good pointy shape.  But for someone with naturally almond shaped eyes, I think this would work great.  

One thing I noticed with this product is that it tends to clump up a little bit if you aren't careful.  You want to make sure you don't push too much eyeliner up at once.  Especially when you are doing the wing.  This can cause the product to get really messy and ball up a little bit.  Just pushing up a tiny (and I mean tiny) bit of eyeliner each time works best and gives you the best result. 

One thing I loved about this liner was how easy it was to get close to the lash line.  It went on SO smoothly and it wasn't hard to apply at all.  It's a very soft liner so it's not difficult to get the pigment onto the skin which is a huge plus for me!

Over all I would give this product 4 out of 5 stars.  I feel like the actual eyeliner is amazing.  If it was in pot form I feel like it could possibly be one of the better gel eyeliners out there.  But for my particular eye shape I had a hard time with the packaging and the tip (only for the wing … it worked great for the lash line).  Like I said though, I could see this working AMAZING on someone with naturally almond shaped eyes.  It's definitely a product I would check out when you are in Sephora next.  I could definitely see this working great for some and it's definitely worth swatching and playing with!

WE ARE BACK!!!!

Guess What!  We're back and ready to update… on a regular basis.  Yes, and we aren't lying this time! 

I love doing this website but with moving and being preggers… it was just put on the back burner.  But now that I am not rocking a belly anymore I am very inspired to start Outfit Blogging and "Mommy" Blogging again. 

A few vlogs back I showed myself doing an at home newborn photo shoot with Emery.  I love photography and its really fun to experiment with.  I am in no way a professional… nor do I want to be, its just a fun little creative outlet for me to play with.  I tried 2 different locations and "Outfits" and thought I could do a few more as she gets a little older.  What do you think?  Did I do okay for being completely amateur! 

Let me know in the comments if you have any tips for photographing newborns.  I know I have to have some professional photographers that follow me!  

I hope you all have been well, and that you for your patience when it came to my website.  I know some of you checked it a lot and loved the outfit posts! I will see you around in future posts.  Also let me know what other kinds of things you like to see.  Should we do more "Toddler outfit of the days"?  I could even bring on "Mommy Mondays" or something.  Throw out your ideas!

Tiger Halloween Costume Ideas

I wanted to show you some cute outfit ideas for my tiger halloween tutorial! I did this for the deer tutorial as well!   I am all about fun simple costumes... with unique makeup.  Especially for those of you who lack time to create a really in depth costume.  This would be great for a halloween party, taking your kids out trick or treating... or of course, answering the door! :) 

 

Have a fun and safe halloween... Look out for more tutorials soon! 




Deer Halloween Costume Ideas

So as most of you know, I uploaded a Deer Makeup Look for Halloween!  I absolutely love it and wanted to show you some ideas on a costume to go with it.  Here is how I picture this look.  You could keep it more casual or go a little more fancy depending on where you are going for Halloween.  If you need to warm it up, just add some tights! Also... Along with the antlers, I think it would be adorable to add a flower crown!  I think it would give it a feminine look! 

 

Lazy...

Ugh, I have been such a lazy piece of poop lately.  I know I know.... What happened to this website! I guess I just haven't been super inspired.  That's the hard part about running a blog or a youtube channel... if the inspiration isn't there... its hard to find the motivation.  Luckilly with my Youtube Channel I am always inspired!  There is something about putting a lot of work into a video, uploading it, and hearing peoples responses is so fulfilling.  Not that blogging isn't.... I guess I have just become a little lazy with it.  I would really like to start back up with blogging... if you guys are willing to read!  What do you think... what would you like to read about.  Fashion and Makeup... or more personal things?  As for my outfit blog... that has been hard lately mostly because I am working on a fun video that requires me to use all my fashion creative juices.  So hopefully soon that section will start back up soon too.  But be patient, it might be just a little bit before I can start posting more fashion stuff! :)  

 

So how have you all been??  Please comment below!  I miss reading all your comments!  

 

Love you guys!

I haven't done a post like this for a while so I thought it was about time.  I love giving shout outs to smaller gurus because I remember what it was like to be there.  I think there are SO many amazingly talented lifestyle vloggers out there that can't get their name out there with how saturated Youtube is these days.  So here I am again, bringing you another fun youtuber that I found recently.

The Fashion Trigger is such a refreshing channel.  Michelle is funny, has a good sense of humor and does a lot of thrift hauls... which I'm not going to lie, are some of my favorite videos.  Her videos are good quality, along with the editing... and her content is great as well! Not only does she do the typical beauty videos like favorites and tutorials, but she also does DIYs!  I love channels that are well rounded with a lot of different types of content.  She doesn't upload SUPER consistently, but when she does... it's always great content, and never feels half assed which I love.  This girl is great, and I really hope to see more of her in the future! :)  Definitely check this girl out! :)
