Festive Friday: Old Town Alexandria Boat Parade

Happy Friday Everyone!

I am so excited to kick off my Festive Fridays with this amazing recap of the Alexandria, VA Boat parade that is held in Old Town. My roommates and I scheduled a fun afternoon exploring shops and eating great local food as we waited for the annual boat parade. This was the perfect way to start the Holiday Season and I can’t wait for you all to see what else I have in store for you this whole month.

I would highly encourage you to check out your own local festivities in your surrounding areas.

Have a great Friday!

Today kicks off my Makeup Mondays looks for this month and I am so excited to bring you some fun holiday looks that cater to all range of skills.

This look uses one palette and only three shades. You can build up the intensity if you wish, but it’s pretty simple and can be recreated with any neutral palette you may own.

I hope you all enjoyed this look and stay tune for the other more fun/playful looks I have for you all throughout the Fridays in December.

Have a great day and I will see you on Wednesday!

Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Dark Magic Palette

IMG_0419

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all a new palette I picked up from Ulta. I feel like this particular palette would be great for the Holidays. The price point is $15 which makes it a great gift for the holidays and a nice little splurge for you.

This is the first time I have tested out any Morphe products. When I swatched the colors at Ulta they seemed to be really pigmented, which is a plus in my book.

Let me know if you have tried out any Morphe products before? Any ones you recommend I should check out?

Have a great day!

My Current Favorite Fall Palettes

IMG_0298

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all three of my favorite fall palettes. Over the past two months I have been gravitating towards these three palettes to create my every day looks to more dressy and glam looks.

I love that no matter what your style is I have a palette suggestion for you. Whatever look you are trying to create I believe you can create it with either one of these beautiful palettes that I have been obsessed with.

The NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette is great for everyday wear. The colors can be used pretty much everyday and you still have the freedom of adding a bit of darkness to your look with the grey black shade that comes in the palette. If you don’t wear a ton of color I highly suggest this palette.

The Dose of Colors Desi X Katy Friendcation is one step up from the every day neutrals with a possibility for pops of color to make a appearance in your looks. The glitters in this palette are to die for. They can easily give you that POW you are wanting for those special occasions.

The Sipping Pretty Kylie Jenner Palette is a mix of fun fall tones with some everyday wearable shades that makes this a great pairing with either of the two mentioned previously or by it’s self.

I hope you enjoyed my fall palette suggestions and that if you are looking for a new go to palette that you will check these out.

What are you favorite Fall palettes? Any that you keep gravitating towards?

Have a great day!

IMG_9988

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing a first impression on the Kylie Cosmetics 21st Birthday makeup collection she launched in August. I had never felt inclined to purchase a collection from her because I felt like the products weren’t something I would wear. When I looked up to see what all the fuzz was about with this new makeup collection I actually saw myself wearing the products, shocker. I ordered one of her bundles and waited patiently.

The Kylie Cosmetics by Kylie Jenner Birthday Collection Bundle includes:

Birthday Collection Pressed Powder Palette

Birthday Collection Rager Lipstick

Birthday Collection 6 pc. Mini Lip Set

Birthday Collection Twenty One Matte Lip Kit

Birthday Collection Eat Cake Glitter Eyes

Birthday Collection Champagne Showers Highlighter

Birthday Collection Cosmetic Bag

Do you own any Kylie Jenner Cosmetics? If so, what is your favorite product of hers?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Simple DIY -Target Wooden Peg Board

IMG_9985

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all a super easy DIY. It takes a few minutes to do, but transform this kid like peg board into something more chic. I picked this peg board from Target. It was only $3 from the dollar section and I knew I could spray paint this into something more modern.

I loved the way this simple DIY turned out all you really need is a can of spray paint in the color of your choosing and BAM you have a unique peg board custom to your style.

Please let me know if you enjoy these kinds of blog post so I can do more of them in the future.

What has been your favorite DIY that you have done? 

Have a great day! I will see you on Friday.
