NYE Smokey Eye Tutorial

Wednesday, December 30, 2015






Happy New Years Eve (eve)! 

Wow.. I can't believe 2015 is coming to an end soon and 2016 is just the next next day! I've partnered up with Fred Meyer to bring you guys an eye makeup tutorial that's perfect for the NYE celebration! I used the L'oreal LA Palette Nude Intense to help achieve this smokey eye look that's super easy. I used five out of the total ten colors and just a few tools. Hopefully my step-by-step above is easy to follow along. This is the first time I've done it this way and major props to the YouTube beauty gurus that does this all the time. It wasn't as easy to capture what I wanted to showcase. Hopefully in 2016 I will be able to do more of these so I can get the hang of it! :)

Soufeel Holiday

Happy Tuesday!

With it being exactly ten days away, it's about that time to hurry up and get those Christmas gifts for your loved ones. A great option for anyone who loves jewelry are these adorable holiday charms from Soufeel which is very similar to Pandora. One thing great is Soufeel has all their selection online so it's easier to see and select. The quality is really nice and they have a wide selection to choose from! I got to choose three holiday charms (including the sterling silver bracelet) so I went with the Santa Sleigh with Reindeer, Christmas Penguin, and Santa Claus House! Christmas is one of my favorite time of the year so anything that commerates it..just makes me so happy! So hurry up and stock up on these charms and give them as gifts. There's still time left. :)

Lindi Skin

Happy Friday!

Today I'm reviewing some products that was sent to me by Lindi Skin. I had never heard of this brand prior to receiving these products and after reading into it. They're known to develop luxurious skincare products for people with compromised or sensitive skin. Their skincare line is also clinically-proven to be safe and gentle. They had sent me their lip balm, face wash, and face moisturizer to try out. And for myself, I have sensitive skin so I was thrilled to give this a try. Giving each product a try for a week, safe to say I haven't broken out (which is a good sign). The face wash didn't strip my skin down and the face moisturizer quickly absorbed without that nasty greasy feeling. I would say the lip balm was probably the best out of the three due to the crazy cold weather we've been having. My lips tends to try out quickly and I needed to prevent from cracking. This lip balm did the trick! :)

Happy Tuesday!

Most of the time the Hubs is the one behind the camera so it was nice that he was able to join me for this "His & Her" holiday style featuring JORD, who makes these beautiful wood watches. I've partnered up with them a few times in the past and this time, I was able to pick two watches, one for myself and another to give away as a gift. And of course that gift went to the Hubs for all the hard work he puts into this blog with me! :) 

I chose the Maple and Silver color from their Cora series just because I don't have anything like it. It's so pretty and unique! The Hubs was really into their 94A series because of how cool it looked plus he always had his eye on a brown watch. Both are handcrafted with great details and quality! Now, onto the fun part of this post, I've partnered with JORD to giveaway a limited quantity of e-gift cards worth $25 each for the holidays! If you've had your eye on one of these lovely wood watches, be sure to enter to get in on the savings, tis the season! Entering is easy; simply click the link HERE and it will ask for your email and your favorite JORD watch (so many to choose from) once you hit enter, your $25 code will be emailed directly to you! :)

Happy Thursday!

Layers are a must when it comes to Fall/Winter. Beanies are also a must and of course having double poms that represents a bear doesn't hurt either. ;) I've gotten so many compliments when I wear it out and my cute little niece gets distracted by them. haha.. I received this top recently from Lurap (Love-UR-APpearance) which is a clothing company that offers items that can be custom sized to fit you exactly how you like it. They have a sizing chart that's simple to utilize and they have a wide varity of items to choose from! I went with this black hi-low top that I gotten the sleeves shorten (thanks to my short arms) and everything else I kept the standard size. Make sure you size it correctly before ordering! They are able to change the length, take a little here and there.. all for you. ;)
