valentine’s gift guide 2016

Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2016


can you guys believe that it is almost valentine’s day?! what in the what what!
well it’s not too late to snag something up for your bff, mom, sister …. yourself. there is nothing wrong with a little retail therapy…mmmkay!
most of these items are relatively cheap and are things that every woman loves. practicality people with the exception of flowers and chocolates. but you can never go wrong with chocolates.

socks – please tell me i am not the only one that is obsessed with cute, comfy socks? i have the worst circulation in my toesies so these are a must during the winter!
coffee mugs – they have to be cute though. that kitty one is just calling my name!
small satchels – for you men that have no idea what a ‘satchel’ is…a purse. but again, stay small, it’s only valentine’s day, not christmas, don’t get crazy.
small jewelry – studs, simple watches, small pendants, etc.
and of course
flowers & chocolates – this should be obvious. or at least to my husband it should be. i constantly have fresh flowers in the house so fresh beautiful pink, white and red blooms make my day!

valentine’s day should be easy, not extravagant. that’s what birthdays and christmas are for.

what are your plans with your special someone? a fancy din din? a romantic date night?

the hubs and i are are doing something different than usual, we are staying in…**gasp**! hehe
we decided a night in with our daughter, some pizza, a movie and a glass of wine is all we needed.

keeping it mega simple in 2016!!
here is what i posted last year as my gift guide in case you need a couple more ideas!
{valentine’s gift guide 2015}

happy early valentine’s day 


loving it in…

Loving It In...

keurig 2.0 k200– i love mine!! i have this exact model and color and again, i love it! it is perfect for the office and brews a ridiculously hot cup o’joe.

contigo 32 oz water bottle – i have this in pink {duh}. I was on the hunt for a bigger water bottle because my 24 oz one just wasn’t cutting it! i drink A TON of water a day and 32 oz is the perfect amount! now, instead of making a trip to the water fountain 6-8 times a day i am only going 3-4! yes!! i purchased mine from target and they have so many colors!

mac mineralize skin finish – yes yes and more yes. this is the perfect shimmer highlight that every makeup guru needs in their collection. it gives you that perfect little shimmer to help make your highlight pop!

maybelline instant age rewind concealor – i was watching a highlight tutorial and the makeup blogger was using this and just raved about it. so i grabbed some on one of my target runs and will never buy an expensive concealer again. i love the way this glides on and as long as you set your makeup correctly, no creases! woop!

can you guys believe that it is already february? what in the world??? 2016 just needs to sloww down!!

do you have some favorites that you’ve been loving?
what are they??


products i’m in love with

i just wanted to do a quick, little post about some recent items that i have fallen completely in love with!
i had used the same products for so long that i started wondering if maybe there might be some new products that i might love more.
i am thrilled with of these products!
november favorites

1 }  prep & prime from mac – let me start out by saying, i never used a primer. i didn’t understand them nor did i want to get my hands messy. now let me retract everything i have ever thought about a primer and sit down. ya’ll, this stuff is my jam!! first off, it’s a spray not a lotion, which…halleluh because, no mess! it’s incredibly light weight and it makes my foundation slide on like a dream! oh and it smells nice.

2 } be curly by aveda – as you have seen in my last weekend adventure post, i chopped all of my hair off {eek!}. my stylist suggested i try this stuff when i wanted to wear my hair natural. i was skeptical at first as i have tried every product imaginable to tame my curls and waves but i decided to give this product a go. holy grail of curly hair products. not joking. i’ll leave it there.

3 } butterfly mascara by l’oreal – so far my favorite drugstore mascara, however…i am still on the hunt for that holy grail. i always jump the gun and say ‘omg this is best mascara, ever!’ and then continue to use it and realize meh, not so much. but so far so good, it definitely lengthens!

4 } studio sculpt by mac – yes yes yes! i was using kat von d’s foundation but it started to get too cakey for me so i went into mac and had them play around with my face. and holy yes! i love this foundation because you can literally use a pea size drop and it will fully cover your face. or, during those pesky times of the month, you can layer it and still look natural! love love love!

5 } stipled brush from mac – i have all the sizes, large, medium and mini… that is just how much i love love love them. i use the medium brush for my morning application and finish it with the large brush and then i keep the mini in my purse for little touch-ups throughout the day. these make my makeup look like it was airbrushed

6 } mineral veil by bareminerals – this stuff…oh boy this stuff is a miracle in a little container. this sets my foundation beautifully and makes it last all day. somedays when i don’t feel like putting on foundation, i’ll just throw some of this on and rock the natural look. it blurs all the right lines. i’ve gone through 3 of these bad boys and i ain’t stoppin.

have you tried any of these products?
did you like them? did you love them…did you hate them?? tell me why!

what i wore to work: november

i am going to try my best to keep this series going, just as long as i remember…hehe
so here is november’s post for

what i wore to work

follow me on instagram to see more outfits that i may post throughout the month!

i work in a professional office as an accounting specialist, so sometimes i meet with the head honchos and have to look my best. i work behind a locked door but i do interact with the public, very seldom but it occasionally happens and when it does i have to look professional.
so for me, distressed denim, leggings and relaxed shirts are not appropriate for my work place.  whomp whomp!
but that’s okay! if you can’t tell by my love for polka dots and the color pink, i’m much more of a, high-waisted skirt with some cute bow pumps, gal anyway!

fall must haves

fall must haves

1} kendra scott rayne necklace – if you know me then you know that i am obsessed with kendra scott so obviously one of her necklaces are part of my fall must haves. i love this deep red!

2} blanket scarf – i know i know, everyone and their mom has this but {here} & {here} are some different plaid patterns that creates the fall casual look just as well.

3} mac lipstick in taupe – i’ve actually linked and raved about this before. it’s one of those beauty items that transitions easy from summer to fall.

4} nars lip pencil in cruella – i actually just did a review on this bad boy {here}. this might be my most important fall staple…a big, bold, red lip! ugh so pretty!

5} black booties – i dare you to walk into a store, go to the shoe section and tell me if you don’t find a pair of black booties…yeah, that’s not going to happen. fall is here and booties are out! get you some!

6} kendra scott addie earrings – please refer to #1 regarding my ks obsession. but these are new and i’m in love! rose gold is my fave and these will be sure to dress up any of my work outfits!

7} a chambray button down – i’m pretty sure all stores have jumped on the band wagon of all things chambray so finding this won’t be hard. you can literally do so many things with a chambray button down. keep it open with a tee underneath and you have a super casual look. close it up and tuck it in under a midi skirt and you have a sophisticated office look. possibilities are endless!

8} kate spade neutral handbag – i’m such a sucker for neutral tone everything. just because it’s incredibly easy to match it with any outfit especially if you are like me and don’t like to switch out your purses to match your outfits.

9} any color moto jacket – i have 4 moto jackets…a grey, white, black and a mint one. i am currently on the hunt for a luggage color one! these jackets aren’t heavy duty but they are perfect for the light winds and chills that fall brings.

10} neutral booties – as much as the black ones are a must have, i think some neutral ones are just as important. matter fact just buy them all!

happy fall, y’all!
now go do some shopping!


mini sephora haul: nars lip pencils

uh-oh, you guys, i went into sephora… gulp!
cale was with me though so i didn’t go cray.
but i did splurge on these lip pencils and i am so excited!


alright, so i got these three bad boys.

velvet matte lip pencil
cruella // {here}
bahama // {here}

satin lip pencil 
palais royal // {here}

swatched from top to bottom // cruella : bahama : palais royal

IMG_6713 palais royal
this one is the satin lip pencil which means it’s a bit creamier than the other two. once it dries, it’s a bit more matte than shiny, which i love! what a great fall color to add to my collection!

IMG_6701 cruella
the perfect red lip! i am obsessed with this red!

IMG_6693 bahama
my new favorite neutral lip!

so let’s talk about these pencils.
i love them!
they go on so smooth and clean. like i said for the satin lip though, it’s way creamier than the matte lip so just take an extra minute to apply it.
even though these are on the pricer end for lipstick {$26} i think that it is totally worth it. totally!

remember: pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together – elizabeth taylor
