National Lipstick Day 2015

Today is National Lipstick day.  Last year, I posted the lipstick that I was wearing that day, and decided to do the same this year.   This is Flirty Fuchsia by Milani.  I love this color.  A bold lip color can make quite a statement and be a reminder of how great rocking one can be.  What lip color are you wearing today?

3 days in outfits

This was fun to do last week, so I am doing it again.  Here are three outfits from last week.  All of the clothes are from Lane Bryant.  The yellow shoes are an old classic that I purchased from Boston Store in Wisconsin about three years ago.  The strappy sandals with the flowers on top are also a classic from a few years ago. I believe they are Aerosoles, but unfortunately I believe they are past their prime.  The sandals with the gold details were featured on my blog last year.  They are from Lane Bryant.  Hope you all enjoy!

Love/Hate Tag

I recently saw this tag and thought it was pretty simple to do.  It also will be fun to come up with my list, so here I go.

10 things I love

1.  Weekends.  I’m living for them.

2.  Great music.  The kind that makes you want to sing at the top of your lungs and can’t help dancing to.

3.  Going to the beach anywhere.  There is nothing like sitting on the beach watching the water and just relaxing

4.  My house.  I just love being at home.

5.  YouTube.  I’m obsessed with daily vlogs.  I also just love that you can find anything you need to learn about.

6.  Social media.  I love reading what other people are getting into.

7.  Finding new clothes or cosmetics. You know…me being a shopping addict and all.

8.  Peace.  I love having time to myself.

9.  Summer.  It’s my favorite season.  I know it can get really really hot, but that’s better than the cold.

10.  Being genuinely happy about anything.

10 things I hate

1.  People over-complicating anything.  Keep it simple, please.  Everything doesn’t have to be so difficult.

2.  Fighting/arguing.  I just have never been a fan of cruelty or meanness.

3. Anyone taking advantage of me.

4.  Cleaning, I just deep cleaned my house and I still hurt.

5.  Cold weather

6.  Not being able to figure out this thing we call life.

7.  Diet soft drinks.  Accidentally giving me a diet drink is the one thing a restaurant can do to make me truly mad.

8.  Reality tv.  I don’t really like scripted reality.  What’s real about that?

9.  Racism/Sexism, etc.  – Anything with people hating others for who they are.  Learn to accept people’s differences.  I still struggle with understanding this kind of hatred.  It’s disgusting.

10.  Being sick.  I get so whiny.

A few outfits from last week

Here are a few outfits from last week. Everything is from Lane Bryant except the striped dress.  That was purchased from Saks off Fifth.  The black flat sandals are Nine West.  The wedge sandals are Reaction by Kenneth Cole.  The summer weather had me feeling very flirty, so dresses/skirts were worn three of the five work days.

Fragrances that I have been loving

I have so many body sprays that I honestly thought about not buying any new perfumes but I really like having a variety.  I’m pretty big on roller balls as well because I can just throw them in my purse and they are less expensive. I believe that I mentioned before that I have almost every single Marc Jacobs sent in roller ball form and I love those.

This past month, I had decided to buy a few new full sized fragrances for the summer.  Now, the Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet I have had for a while and I absolutely love this scent. No matter how much I try to change up my fragrances, I really love floral and clean smells.  I don’t like musky or overpowering scents at all.  Keeping that in mind, my next favorite is Jennifer Anniston. This has also been a favorite that I have had for a while in roller ball form.  I went ahead and bought the large bottle.  It wasn’t very expensive so I consider it a good deal.

During Sephora’s fragrance sales where they offered 3x’s the beauty points, I purchased two scents.  The first is Chloe’s Love Story.  This smells soooo good! This is definitely a classic scent for me.  It’s light, floral and slightly sweet.  I can spray it without fear of feeling that the scent will become overwhelming throughout the day.  I have worn this a lot since I purchased it.

The final scent that I purchased is Marchesa Eau de perfume.  This is a different scent for me which is what I was looking for when I purchased it.  It’s still very clean, but not necessarily floral.  When I first smelled it, I thought it smelled “soapy”, but sweet.  It’s a very unique smell.  I sprayed it in the store, then walked around for a day with it on.  The more the day went on, the more I really liked it.  It was just….different.  I have been enjoying my new fragrances a lot.  What are your signature scents?

A few new fall essentials

Since it has been getting colder here in Georgia, I have been in need of a few more long sleeved shirts.  I purchased a shirt from Torrid that is a long sleeve v-neck with hearts all over it. I also purchased a long sleeved shirt that is a similar material to a thin sweatshirt from Lane Bryant.  This one has shiny snowflake-like designs all over it.  I raced around to 4 stores to find this one in my size as it went on clearance very quickly.  Ironically, I found a similar one as I was dashing around town at Dress Barn that was made of a thinner material and a darker gray color.  I already wore that one, so forgot to take a picture but I will put a link below if I can find one.

Of course, no month would be complete without a few beauty buys so I did get a few new lip colors at the Sephora VIB event.  I purchased another Matte creme lip crayon from Bite Beauty in the color Aubergine.  This was actually the color that I wanted when I purchased the color cognac which was mentioned in one of my previous posts, however the Sephora that I was at was out of that color at the time.  A Kat Von D lipstick also made its way into my shopping basket.  I got Studded Kiss lipstick rouge a levres in the color prayer.  This color is beautiful and since matte’s are my favorite formula for lipsticks, so I know I will love it. I also came across a new item from Josie Maran called the Coconut watercolor lip stain. I got the color Coral Oasis.  I really love it!  It has a lip stain on one side, and gloss on the other.  This is probably a color more suited for spring/summer but I think it’s beautiful and wore it most of the day yesterday.  I also purchased my favorite from Fresh which is the Sugar tinted lip treatment in the color rose.  I have been addicted to these for a couple of years.  They are so moisturizing, and I like to wear it not only during the day, but at night to keep my lips from getting chapped.

Finally, I have become somewhat addicted to perfume roller balls.  I have bought practically every scent by Marc Jacobs.  Roller balls seem to be perfect for me since I find that the sprays last forever and I will rarely finish them before getting tired of the scent.  I have a few favorites that I will wear forever and never get sick of such as Dior’s Ja’dore, but for the most part…roller balls are the way to go.

Well there you go!  A new post that helps me sort out my shopping obsession.  I will talk to you all soon!

Casual Friday

Lane Bryant recently had a massive clearance sale where there were quite a few items that were $6.99.  I didn’t find a ton of things, but I did get this sweater.  The color of this sweater is beautiful and I thought it would be a great color to wear on Halloween.  The cuffed jeans are a few years old from Lane Bryant and I purchased to booties from a local boutique.
