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.

New Chapter: Moving + Unpacking

Happy Monday Everyone!

The last two months have been consumed with packing, moving, quitting my second job and finding a balance with my life. I decided to take a step away from my blog and focus on actually living my life.

IMG_9978

As always I try and document the major shifts in my life and this is one that I feel like I had to take a little bit longer to share. I finally started to put my room together and through I would share some snapshots of that process.

Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Gold Bar

IMG_0600

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing a review on yet another highlighter. I seriously have a highlighting obsession which I need to keep under control. Today I bring you a new drugstore highlighter find. I wanted to let you know if this particular highlighter is worth it or not.

This highlighter is one for those who want a natural glow. I knew when I picked it up that it may not be a highlight that I was going to reach for special events. I picked it up specifically for every day wear.

As you can see this highlight is a natural and is subtle. If you aren’t a fan of a disco ball highlight then this might be the highlight for you. I like to layer this with my e.l.f cream highlight it really brings it home without it looking like I caked on a bunch of products.

Have you tried this Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Gold Bar? What is your go to drugstore highlight? 

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

Create – My new tattoo

 

img_9770

Happy Monday Everyone!

Welcome back, where do I begin to explain where I have been. It can be summed up by saying that I needed time to live life. Explore new opportunities and make mistakes. I am back to blogging with a new perspective and have a new found energy for what I want to put out into the world.

For starters, I got a new tattoo that embodies this new feeling. I wanted my first blog post to be exactly about creating the life you want. I feel like I have taken these steps in the last few months. This new tattoo is a reminder that I am capable of creating so many wonderful things in my life.

I want to thank you for sticking around and continuing to join me in this journey called life, and all the snapshots I share with you all.

Do any of you have any tattoos? If so what are they and do you mind sharing their meaning?

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

IMG_0612

Happy Monday Everyone!

Welcome Back to my blog. I know it’s been a while since I posted on my blog. So to make it up to you all I wanted to share a haul and explain a bit why I have been absent. So while I was gone I did a little bit of shopping and I started a new job. I also have been working on my personal relationships. I also have been nurturing my relationship with myself something that continues to be a top priority. I really needed a break to work on the real parts in my life. I hope you all can understand why I have been gone for so long and can forgive my absence. So now onto the haul.

e.l.f Shimmering Highlight Powder -Starlight Glow

IMG_0553

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing a first impression on this e.l.f. Shimmering Highlight Powder in Starlight Glow. I have been trying to branch out from all of my high-end highlighters and give some drugstore brands a try. Off the bat I had heard some pretty good things about the e.l.f highlighters. The price is very affordable ($6) for what you are getting and I wanted to see for myself what all this talk was about.

IMG_0557

 

What e.l.f states about this highlight: This lightweight, versatile pressed shimmer highlighting powder helps amplify your natural radiance with a refined glow. Microfine particles blur lines to create a soft focus effect on the skin. Designed to highlight and reflect light for a luminous, photo-ready finish.

They have 7 other shades available in this same formula, you can shop them here. Overall I like that I can build this highlight up as much as I want and can wear it on a every day basis without feeling like I look like a disco ball.

IMG_0555

I am really curious to check out the other shades that they have available for this bronzer. I definitely see this bronzer staying in my makeup routine for a little while longer.

Have you tried this particular bronzer? Any drugstore highlighters you recommend I should try? 

Have a great day!

DIY Deadpool Themed Jean Jacket

IMG_0580

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you a really awesome DIY project I had been working on for the new release of Deadpool 2. I really wanted to wear something that showed my love for Deadpool, but not dress up in costume. I compromised on this jean jacket and at the end of it all I had such a great time watching Deadpool 2.

IMG_0529Step One:

Use a jacket you already have, or find one at the thrift store or at your local retail store that maybe on clearance. I wanted to add more texture to my jacket and decide to spray paint it and sponge on some white paint all over it (this step can be optional).

IMG_0530

Step two:

Buy a assortment of iron on patches and place them in the areas you feel work best with the jacket. I also purchased iron on letters and numbers to add Deadpool’s last name and the year the comic was created.

IMG_0532

Step Three:

Follow the directions on each of the patches and apply heat. You can also use fabric glue to apply the patches if you don’t own a iron.

IMG_0543

(Optional) Step Four:

My iron on letters had me peel off the plastic bit off of them to complete my look.

The finished product!

This DIY was so much fun to create and I am so excited to try to create more wearable DIY’s in the future. I hope you all enjoyed.

Are any of you Deadpool fans? How about any other superhero?

Have a great weekend!
