Valentine’s Countdown: Day 5

In my day 3 post I mentioned how I had one more lip color to talk about (catch up here) and here it is! Along with the ‘True Love’ color I bought, I also got this one called ‘Beet it’. You can probably guess the shade by the name right? Yep it is a beet/berry color and is soooo pretty! It is bold like the bright pink/red of ‘True Love’ but in a different way. I think this dark lip is a little more sexy and great for going out at night, it just pops so much, especially if you do not wear dark lipstick that often. This darker shade would be super cute with blush pink for a Valentine’s Day date. Again this is from Lime Crime and is another matte liquid lipstick, or what they call their Velvetines.

Can you also witness how cute this Valentine’s Day mug is? I got it from Target (of course) and I made myself throw an old mug away to get this one because my cupboard is so full. It would make a super cute little V-day gift to fill with candy or whatever other little things and tie a ribbon around the handle. Tomorrow I am posting the the little candy gift I am making for my boyfriend so be sure to come back! If you missed any of the previous days find them here: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, and Day 4.

Valentine’s Countdown: Day 3

Today I am talking lips! My older sister (Beauty by Nicole Breanne) is a make-up artist and got me hooked on Lime Crime matte liquid lipsticks (I have posted about them before). They are so awesome, have beautiful colors, and honestly stay on ALL DAY. There is a color I have been wanting for a long time and it went on sale! It is beyond perfect for Valentine’s Day and get this, it’s called ‘True Love’. It is a bright pink-red. I think red lipstick is so beautiful and sexy but I find it difficult to wear myself, I am usually drawn more to pinks. This color is perfect because it is not quite red, but has enough red in it to make me feel good.


What better way to spice up an outfit than with bright lips? There is something about it that gives me confidence, does anyone else get that? I think fierce lips radiate an energy and gives you a certain attitude like you know you look good. Guess what else? It is still on sale for $10!! I have one more Lime Crime matte velvetine to post for Valentine’s so be sure to come back!

The Perfect Look Bag

Purses are an essential that we use everyday, how else would we lug around all of the stuff we “need” on a daily basis? I’m bad about this, my purse will end up so heavy and when I empty it I think why on earth do I need this in my purse?! Every day does not require a large purse, which is what I mainly use besides a few clutches I bought to wear to weddings. I want to try a small purse here and there so I bought a white quilted one from Charming Charlie that I think can go with tons of combinations and bring some fun to my outfit. I just LOVE the lips and glasses on this bag. It is cute and funky but still not too much and holds all of the essentials: wallet (which I also need to downsize), keys, lip gloss/stick, and sunglasses. What else would I need when I go out?

The Power of Lipstick

Lipstick has been a a big love of mine. I have collected quite a few, my weakness, Mac. When I say quite a few, I mean…

That pile is even missing a few. I fell out of wearing it for awhile because of where I was working, we were only allowed to wear “natural” makeup. Now I’m getting back into them full swing! I don’t know about how other girls feel when they put on lipstick, but for me, I feel different. It is like my lipsticks have powers. I get a new sense of confidence when I am wearing a bright one. It’s an attention grabber. It really is true that when you look good, you feel good. Today I wore my favorite new bright pink Viva Glam Miley by Miley Cyrus.

If I were to ever have my own lipstick line, I would want them to have inspirational names for women like “You Go Girl”, “This Is Your Day”, and “You Got This”. They would give a little more confidence when you wear them and every time you reapply.

Here is to having confidence and pretty lips!
