Year round colors...

These are my two all time favorite colors to wear. Summer, Spring, Winter, Fall… any time of the year I feel like they can be worn. Beige with gold studs on the shoulder, and a pale pink shimmery scarf.  I paired the top and scarf with a charcoal legging, and my brown knee high boots that I love.

Truth is, I've basically always stuck to the same routine. The only thing I have recently started doing is using whites. After I apply my BB cream, mineral face powder, bronzer, and blush, I will always start out with the scandalous eyes eye shadow stick on my eyes. It's almost like a clay texture… which I absolutely love because it gives my eyes that amazing base that not only brings out my eyes, it makes my eye makeup stay on all day and looking fresh always! I recently just learned in school last week that with my cool skin tone, white, shimmery light browns, and blue look best on me. This made me so happy because that's what I've always used.
But seriously that white eye shadow stick is amazing. I'm forever addicted to it now! I always tell people it's my life saver. It gives my eyes a great look. 
After I apply that, I will dab on my plain white eye shadow with my finger… not with a brush. For some reason I like doing that with the white. Then I will use a brush to do my shimmery browns. I apply that right under my brow bone always. Depending on the day, I'll do more brown than usual or just do a little. It actually all depends on my mood… :) haha. 
Next, I apply my Elf black liquid eye liner. Also, one of my life savers. I just love it. And depending on my mood or outfit, I'll do a winged eye, a subtle line, or barely winged. This is harder to explain then I thought it would be! Haha and I never realized how much I do differently with different moods. I'm so crazy! Aren't we all? 
So after I apply my black liquid eye liner, sometimes I'll use my gold glitter liquid eye liner. I'll either apply it right under my bottom lashes, or above my black liquid eyeliner. Next I apply my white pencil eye liner right above my bottom lashes. This makes my eyes look so much bigger. I only use it for special occasions. 
Finally I apply my mascara. I usually always use 2 or even 3 different mascara brushes. I like to get my lashes looking nice and long. 
Sometimes when people ask me what brands makeup I use and I say Elf, they look so surprised. It's honestly such great quality! I love it. And it's so amazing because it's so, so inexpensive. You should all definitely check it out and experiment. I always buy all of my makeup at Target.
Also, a big beauty secret of mine… Just 3 weeks ago I stopped using my face wash. I've been using brown sugar and olive oil. My skin has never, ever been this clear, soft, and just over all pretty. I do this two times a day. Morning and night. I'll just mix the two together and rub it on my face for about 3 minutes. I never have to use lotion anymore because the brown sugar and olive oil moisturizes my face so well. My skin feels amazing. 
I've been getting so into lipstick. Now, the days I don't wear it I feel a little too dull! My aunt just gave me Mary Kay Mystic Plum. I am so, so in love with the color. It's so in style right now too. 

Here are some of my lip inspiration looks.

Pale pink & mittens...

I had no choice but to wear mittens out today! It's freezing here in Idaho. I haven't had a day off of both school and work since September so today has felt like heaven to me. It's so, so nice just to relax and have fun! I even snuck a nap in. :)

Black & White…

Thanksgiving was absolutely perfect. Being surrounded by all my loved ones is the best. My family is so, so wonderful. The only thing missing yesterday was my sister! We all watched a bunch of old family videos from years and years ago yesterday and that just seriously warmed my heart. Although it was kind of bittersweet… where does the time go? 
Growing up becomes just a flash.
I'm so thankful to have such an amazing family who never ever fails to make me laugh and smile. 
I also got to spend part of my thanksgiving with my boyfriends family. It's amazing to me how much I just completely adore them. How luck am I to have all these incredible people in my life!? 

I'm such a go-to-black girl. Black goes with every occasion/holiday in my book! You just can never go wrong. Black is such a classy color. Yesterday I paired my outfit with the most meaningful necklace I have, and I felt more fabulous then ever! 
I hope you all had such a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones. Xoxo

My love.

The Vera...

These are some pictures that I am absolutely in love with, that I  wanted to share. There are so many things that I love in these! In the first few pictures I'm wearing a long tulle skirt that my mom made. She is so amazing. I loved wearing that skirt. It made me feel like I was in a fairytale. I paired it with a denim button up… which you can never go wrong with right!
In the next few pictures after that I am wearing Vera Wang. I wish I could put down in words the way I feel with a Vera Wang dress on… it's magical, really. That dress fits me like a glove. Not just me, but my sister too! :)
And the next pictures… Well I loved that dress. Mostly because I love love love aquamarine. But MOST of all because I love my best friend. A thousand times more then any dress in the world!

3 things I can't live without: 
1. A good dress
2. My best friend
3. A little glitter in the air

If you live close to a Dutch Bros, go try the toasted marshmallow hot chocolate… it is so magical!
I LOVE this little red dress. It fits me like a glove. You can't tell in the pictures, but it's super sparkly! Red and sparkles together… oh my. Of coarse I adore it. 
The best part is… I got it for $3.00! Nothing makes me happier then a fab thrift find. My mom swears to me that she had the same dress in the 80's haha.
So many people kept telling me I looked like Christmas, and that just made me smile!

Day Dreaming...

It's 100% true that I day dream way too often about my future wedding day... It's the biggest day of every girls life! There's no such thing as planning too early ;) haha. It's impossible for me to avoid the wedding category on Pinterest. Oops! 
A girl can dream.
