Target Romper for all Body Types

I can't even describe how excited I am to share this. I haven't owned a romper since I was a kid. Rompers always hit me in all the wrong places. I try them on all the time when I am out shopping and I always go home without one. Until, I found this gem at Target this past weekend. Just by chance I saw it, glanced it up and down and thought to myself "why not try it on." It fit perfectly! Since I have wider hips the waist line on rompers need to be higher. Like this one, the waistline is higher and the shorts are a little bit longer. I loved it so much I went back the next day and bought every other color they had in my size. It was from the juniors section so I did have to size up. I can't wait for this weekend to rock this romper!

Paisley Print Shorts

These printed paisley shorts are from a few years ago. I scooped them up on an after summer clearance sale. I just love paisley print. Even tough I paired it with black, it still looks summery and fresh. I kept the sandals and the necklace a little more boho-ish.

Summer Shimmer with a Pop of Pink

When I came to my makeup artist (a.k.a. my best friend) and told her about this dress I have that I want to feature, I left it up to her to figure out the look. So she decided to do a Summer shimmer with a pop of pink lip color. Can you say "highlighter on point!" And how cute is this dress from Ross for a mere $12! Hello shopping deals!

Bourbon & Boweties Trunk Show

I recently was able to attend a Bourbon & Boweties trunk show at Nordstoms. I have been wanting to make it out to one for a while now, and my schedule finally allowed and they were in Tampa. They had a ton of bracelets and even had a bead bar, where you could create your own bracelet. Which is what I chose to do. For my birthday this past year my boss gave me a beaded B&B bracelet with turquoise beads. I wear it all the time. It's one of my favorites. So I wanted to make one in a neutral color. If you love these bracelets I highly encourage you to go and make your own one of a kind bracelet (note that not all shows have the bead bar).

Ipsy May Glam Bag Review

I really like the bag this month. It is one of the largest I have ever received. I can finally fit quite a bit of makeup in here.

Luxie Precision Foundation Brush: I have received several of this brand of brushes. I love how soft the bristles are and they are very easy to clean. They have really good eye brushes too.

Briogeo Rosarco Milk Leave In Conditioner: I don't receive a lot of hair samples in my bags. I received a face wash from this brand before and I liked it. I put in my damp hair and let my hair air dry. It did feel softer, and also kind of cleaner, if that makes sense. 

Mannakadar Highlighter & Bronzer Duo: This brand also I have received several of their samples. I have liked their eyeshadows and other highlighters. I used the highlighter this morning. I think this was a cool combo but it was kinda hard to get just the highlighter on my brush. I had to find a super small blush brush. 

it Cosmetics Superhero Mascara: I love this brand. The more I try from it, the more I fall in love with them. This was the first time I tried the Superhero mascara. Made my lashes long, I liked the actual brush too. I am kind of picky about the brushes on mascaras. I would definitely buy the full size version of this one.

Cailyn Extreme Matte Tint Lipstick: Awesome color first of all! I think this would be a perfect transitional color from summer to fall. I don't really care for how it smells (kind of picky about that too). This is a great everyday color as well. I checked out their website and they have a ton of different shades!

Summer Glam Makeup

I made a trip to Sephora this weekend with one of my friends from work, who is just obsessed with makeup as much as I am. She actually probably owns and knows more than me. I was feeling very inspired this weekend so I had my other friend who is a makeup guru do my makeup. I told her I wanted a "fresh, summer glam," and she surely delivered. I would love to see your versions of "Summer glam".

Wear To Work

I have worn this dress so much. I have worn it to interviews, special events and to work. It is the perfect neutral color and adding some black and gold accessories makes this a simple outfit to put together. I actually scored this one on the clearance rack at Kohls a while back for $12 and the black heels are from Kohls too, I got for $9. Couldn't say no!

Florals, Florals Everywhere!

When I saw this top on the Old Navy website, I knew I had to have it. I love wear white shorts with cute tops. And right now florals are everywhere! And I can't get enough of them! And I wore it this past weekend at the Fun N' Country concert and got to meet a new up and coming country star Aubrey Wollett. How cute is her outfit! Check out her music here.

Print Maxi Dress

Here we go again, there's that denim jacket I can't get enough of! This was my outfit for work today. I was feeling super summery in this dress. I got this one a few years back in JC Penney's. It's a strapless one so I had to cover it with something, since I can't were anything strapless at work. It is such a cute dress and comfy for work or the weekends. I paired it with some gold sandals, oh how I love summer clothing!

Tribal Skirt

If there is one thing you are going to see a lot it's my denim jacket. I love it with any outfit. To me it's the best completer piece. Plus, it's always so cold in my office. I own several denim jackets, but this one is my favorite one. It's from Gap several years ago. This is a staple piece for any wardrobe.

"I walked out of Target with nothing,"-said no one ever! 
Just got these two yesterday. The tee is heather grey with embroidered lemons. And all tees are on sale right now for $6! Time to stock up. 
And these chambray shorts with frayed multicolor hem are the perfect weekend short and I couldn't pass them up for $17.99 :) 

(these both were not online at the time of this post)

Ipsy: April Glam Bag Review

Ipsy April Glam Bag Review 

First off I love the make-up bag this month! How adorable :)

Pond's Cold Cream Cleanser: this was the first time I have ever tried anything like this. It says that it removes make-up, which it did. I usually like to use the Neutrogena Grapefruit scrub to cleanse my face. I washed it off in the shower with a wash cloth and afterwards my face still felt like there was "residue" on it. After I got out and dried my face, it stared to feel more moisturized. Usually my face feels really dry after using the grapefruit scrub. So it was a different feeling. I think this would be perfect for anyone who has dry skin. 

Jesse's Girl Eyeliner: I love eyeliners. It is always one of my favorite things to get my bags each month. So I was excited to try this new brand. Not sure if it was just dried out, but it did not drag easily across my lid. I was disappointed. I have turned in to drain down, so hopefully it will be better once the tip gets completely saturated.

Ciate Bronzer: Now that it is becoming Spring/Summer time, and I am finally getting my tan back, I am looking forward to wearing bronzer again. This is a great shade for me it's not to dark, and its matte, no shimmer. I really like this one. 

Ofra Cosmetics Blush: I have received several samples from Ofra Cosmetics, and I truly like this brand. This is a great color for blush, kinda a peachy-bronze color. I like these little samples because you can remove them from the little holder and put into a Z-palette. 

Meg Nail Polish: I usually don't get very much nail polis in my bags, and I have never received this brand before. I usually do my own nails, so I like receiving new polishes. This one is so cute with 2 sample bottles of nail polish. Very easy to apply and 2 coats looked great. See photo below of the grey shade.
