Naked 3 Palette Tutorial- Glittery Smokey Eye

I knew I wanted the Naked3 palette as soon as I saw the it. I loved the rosey hues and thought they would complement my hazel eyes. Luckily for me, I was given a Sephora gift card for Christmas. Unluckily for me, I had to wait a couple of weeks before they got them back in stock. It's amazing how popular these palettes are! It's not too surprising though because the quality is amazing! So much shimmery, highly pigmented goodness!

Soft Eyes + Dramatic Lips Makeup Tutorial

Last year I started wearing lipstick. Before that point, I'd always felt silly using it. As a teenager I felt too young to wear it and that feeling stuck with me even as I became an adult. I'd only ever noticed a couple of people around my age wearing it so I was worried that people would think I was weird if I did. I thought that it looked great on those couple of girls but I didn't feel like it looked all that great when I tested it out myself.

If I had to say which item of clothing dominates my closet it would be sweaters. I have my closet organized by clothing type- short sleeve tees, long sleeve tees, blazers, sweaters, skirts, pants, dresses. My sweater section is definitely the largest. I have to try to talk myself out of buying more every time I go shopping. They are pretty fantastic to have during colder months, though. Especially if you're taking outfit pictures outside in the snow without a coat.

Also, when did my baby start looking so grown up? Eve's at the point where she's constantly talking in her own little language. She loves to carry my phone around and pretend to be talking to someone. It's amazing to see the things that she learns from us!


Cobalt + Camo

There's something fun about wearing a brightly colored coat. It's different from wearing any other item of colorful clothing. They always make a serious statement. I also love the pleats and body of this coat. I always have to do at least one twirl when I put this pretty thing on.

Speaking of love, I love love love my new Tory Burch sunglasses. I've always been a $15 sunglasses kind of girl... sometimes even a $2 sunglasses girl... but when these gorgeous ones were on sale from Nordstrom for 40% off, I told my husband that they would be a great Christmas present.

Also, how fun are these camouflage heels? I love how they are feminine but with some fun edginess.

Since I love shopping for great deals (and letting other people know about great deals), I thought I would start sharing more of my finds here! It might not happen every week, especially if there are no amazing sales. I know that not everyone is a fan of these kinds of posts, so I figured that if I shared them on Saturday, they will be kind of like bonus posts since I don't usually post on the weekend.

Here are my finds from Forever 21, Nordstrom, J.Crew Factory, Anthropologie, ASOS, and Express. There are a variety of prices- most things are less than $50 but a few are over $100. I know that some of you are like me and cringe when you have to pay more than $25 for something, so for you I created a separate collection at the bottom of the page which includes all of the items here that are under $25 (after coupon codes).

Blue Midi

You may have noticed that this blog received some major reconstructive surgery yesterday. I've been contemplating a blog redesign for a while and figured that the beginning of a new year would be the perfect time to do it!

This dress was another great find from H&M. Thanks to a buy-two-get-one-free deal, I walked away with this pretty number for $7.50. It's such a gorgeous color and I love the midi length. It's a fairly simple dress so I dressed it up a little with a fun belt.
