Play By Sephora November Box

Ladies, I am so sorry this is so late!  I have been trying to get to this and things just keep coming up!  I haven’t even had the chance to really look at what I got in the box and try anything yet.  I will say that I have purchased the Makeup For Ever HD foundation from Octobers box and put the Makeup For Ever boosting serum and Becca Shimmer Primer on my Christmas list! All three of these came in the October box and I loved them and will be wearing them.  The color of the foundation that came in my box was not a match to my skin so I had to go get some more samples and when I found one that…

Cocktail Jackets;Problem Solved!

Hey ladies! I am writing a quick post on what I recommend to wear over a cocktail dress. I had a client that struggled to find something to keep her warm when she was going to cocktail parties.  Well, I know that most women are cold ALL THE TIME so  I decided that other woman may need a solution for this as well.  I like solving these types of problems for people, so if this is you too then please keep reading! A simple pashmina is a great solution to cover the arms but is really not a great solution for warmth.  For those that need a little more warmth  faux fur, sequins and velvet are great solutions. These materials are considered luxurious and therefore…

How To Style Layers

Hello girlies!  I promised I would do a follow up post on the cute tie neck sweater (also in pink and ivory as well) I wore for Thanksgiving so I’m bringing it to you now.  This sweater is way more versatile than I thought!  I wore it by itself on Thanksgiving because the temperature outside was somewhat warm but my favorite way to wear it is layered.  I think layering brings so much more interest to an outfit. My first layering choice for this J Crew Tie Neck Sweater is to put a collard button down underneath the sweater with some cute shoes; a fun pair of booties or sneakers would work perfectly! I like my blush pink booties with it and especially like to…

Unique Gifts That Keep on Giving

Hello Ladies!  I really wanted to do a post on my recommendations for holiday gifts. I wanted to make it fun and different and could not figure out what to do.  As I was laying in bed one night I remembered I needed to get some Chick-fil-A calendars for people for Christmas. We have done this the past few years. I try to get them early because one year they sold out.  This is something that people truly love to receive for Christmas and don’t usually purchase for themselves.  It is so simple and it’s the gift that keeps on giving!  Wow, LIGHTBULB!  That would make a great post for Christmas gift ideas! I decided to round up a list of things that I feel…

Crushing on Camo

Hello Everyone! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving break and did lots of great shopping!  I shopped for the first time in 20 years on Black Friday and it was a blast.  We now have 4 weeks until Christmas! Sometimes it’s 5 weeks depending on how Thanksgiving falls.  I look forward to Christmas coming but I don’t look forward to winter. I love fall and it just doesn’t last long enough. There is a very specific time of year that the leaves change and my favorite tree turns bright yellow.  Some seasons it’s more yellow than others. This tree is the Ginkgo tree.  I have one in my yard and just learned last year about what is called “Night of the Ginkgo”.  This is…
