This past weekend might have been my best yet (excluding the weekend of my October wedding, of course!).

I’ve been following him for about a year now… seeing his work and the many gorgeous looks he creates on top celebs…. Read more »

I may have taken a brief hiatus from blogging, however, the makeup purchases and product testing continued as per usual – trust me! So, I kind of fell in love. In love with a brand. Literally an entire line of makeup. But, before I start gushing about my obsession, I need to discuss Ulta. Now, the reason for making my first ever trip to Ulta was for this brand line that is not carried in any other retailer by my… Read more »

Dry. Cracked. Peeling – All words to describe my lips during these frigid winter months – yummy, right? NOT AT ALL! And these consistent snow storms on the East Coast aren’t helping to relieve any of these unsightly symptoms unfortunately. I am an obsessive lipstick, lip gloss and lip balm re-applier. Guilty as charged! But the number of applications increases as the temperature decreases, which is why I just had to blog about my favorite picks to moisturize, hydrate and… Read more »

I would call myself a mush. A sensitive soul. Lovey-dovey. Snuggler. Cuddler. And anything else remotely related to wearing your emotions on your sleeve – that is me to a T. I thoroughly embrace this…which is why Valentine’s Day is my holiday. A day where it’s socially acceptable to have an outpouring of love and affection, publicly. LOVE IT! So, in the spirit of love… I wanted to post pictures of all things that I love. As you know, a… Read more »

I could not believe there was a little puppy roaming our home since my dad was so adamant about not getting a dog. We had just moved into our freshly built home in a different town and I… Read more »
