..Floral Peplum

DSC_1248
The deets: ASOS skirt; Elizabeth and James sunnies; LOFT tank; Michael Antonio heels; Piperlime clutch (old but love this one); Fornash bracelet; Francesca's earrings (very similar).

This skirt is sort of my go-to bottom for when I am not feeling my best but need to go out and try to feel put together. It is just the right amount of girly to make me feel pretty but also does an amazing job camouflaging a night of indulgence (ahem..shots, shots, and late night Dominos orders) under that little peplum ruffle.

..The Best Lash-Liner Duo Ever!

DSC_1202

You guys, Benefit's "They're Real!" Mascara was already one of my favorite beauty products known to man. When they came out with a "They're Real!" Push-Up Gel Liner that makes doing a  perfect cat-eye a piece of cake, I HAD to have it (like I went on the pre-order wait list you guys). Needless to say, it's now also one of my favorite things, especially when paired with the mascara. Sexy kitteny lashtastic eyes in a snap.

The only down side is this ish basically gets tattooed onto your face so be prepared to use a bunch of remover before washing it off. See me going from zero eye makeup to just adding these two products and what a difference it makes, no shadow or anything! Go out and give them a try.

..Blonder

DSC_1161
The deets: Michael Stars tank; LOFT skirt; Michael Antonio heels; Elizabeth and James sunnies; old Piperlime clutch (love this one); MK watch.

Sometimes I have these moments of extreme compulsiveness and just have to act on them. Sometimes it's in the form of just HAVING to make a recipe I found on Pinterest tonight, or seeing an outfit on someone else and NEEDING to replicate everything about it, and sometimes I just look in the mirror and crave a change - right now.

Enter this video tutorial by one of my favorite ladies and one box of Revlon "Frost and Glow" and you get one blonder instantly gratified Erin.

I know, it's crazy. Fortunately I LOVE the way it turned out! I would reccomend the product (and video) for anyone whos brave enough to try dying their own hair.

..Perfume Match Made in Heaven

Perfume

I have been asked three times in the last week what perfume I am wearing (I am hoping because I smell delightful and not because they want to stear clear of whatever I am wearing) and although I don't wear the same smell every day, each time I was asked I was wearing the above combination. People always seem a little surprised that I mix two together to get the scent I want so I thought I would share my secret here. I mix 1 part (or spritz) of Michael Kors "Glam Jasmine" with one part Lush's "Lust." The MK scent alone was not enough floral fragrance to me but "Lust" was a bit too much Jasmine on it's own. Together they are just what I am looking for!

.."Little Man" Baby Shower

DSC_1044
Custom straws by AnnaliseJDesigns; bingo cards by paperclever; invitation by Shutterfly; custom water bottle wrappers, chocolate mustache pops, brunch food, and mustache cookies all hand made with love by friends and family.

One of my besties is having a little baby boy that's due in September. Myself, her family, and some of her other friends threw her a cute "little man" themed baby shower which turned out so adorable! I had no idea this was such a popular theme for baby boys, there was SO MUCH cute stuff available for the party, I just had to share some of my favorite snaps from the day. One thing is for sure, this gorgeous mama to be and her baby are very well loved.
