Merci!

I absolutely love clever and cute stationary and greeting cards! It is always great getting a Thank You card from someone but when it has a little something extra, whether that be a great design or unique artwork, that just makes that Thank You even sweeter!

I recently purchased the cutest Thank You cards from Marshalls. It has an adorably designed piece of candy of the front and it says You’re Sweet in the most perfectly girly script font. I just love it! I am considering mailing myself one because I love them so much!

Since I believe everyone needs a good stash of Thank You cards, I have included some great picks below. Enjoy!

Contour Me

If there is one thing we can say about Kim Kardashian, it’s that she knows how to rock a contoured look! Her make up artists have perfected this technique and we can all benefit from it as well. Contouring really does make such a difference! It’s like having someone follow you around all day with perfect lighting! I will take it!

The make up looks at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows are always flawless! It’s not too little and it’s not too much. They also use the most beautiful neutral tones which makes this look perfect for everyone!

This video tutorial is by the Queen of  make up video tutorials, Ms. Tiffany D. If you have not tuned in to her YouTube Channel, I suggest you do so now. She has the BEST tutorials that are so easy to follow. And can we talk about those lashes?! She has the most killer eyelashes and I am super jealous!

Making it Easy!

This week, I will be featuring blog posts from some of my favorite sites and today we begin with my favorite beauty site, The Beauty Department. If you are not familiar with this site, it’s time to start falling in love! They have the best beauty advice and their tutorial photos are adorable! The whole website is actually designed really well and it is very easy to  navigate. I pretty much want to work there but haven’t figured out a way to swindle my way in yet! One day people, one day.

This post is about finding your perfect foundation shade, which I still struggle with from time to time. Like most women, I have 4 different shades of foundation in my vanity at one time and most of the time my skin is a mixture of multiple shades which can really get intense! If you are one of the many that need help in this area, this post is a great place to start!

So Fresh Fridays!

As you all know, I am a huge fan of Too Faced Cosmetics. I especially love their palettes and their new additions are no exception. I cannot wait to try these!

The Secret to No Makeup Fresh and Flawless Face – This palette is very similar to their Natural Face Palette, which I previously blogged about here, but has more pink tones rather than neutral/bronze tones. This will be the perfect addition to my spring makeup collection. It includes everything you need for that perfect, flawless face and you can throw it in your purse for those as needed touch-ups. Perfect if you ask me!

Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush– I REALLY hope I get this little gem for Valentine’s Day…hint, hint! This blush mixes three perfect colors which means this stuff is goof proof! Not too dark. Not too light. Just a perfect, romantic flush. I have a feeling many ladies will be wearing this come February 14th. Don’t think I am going to forget to mention the ADORABLE heart shaped packaging. I am in love! Can’t all makeup palettes come in a heart shaped box or maybe a bunny shape. Bunnies are pretty cute too!

Boudoir Eyes Shadow Collection– I own multiple Too Faced Eye Shadow Palettes but this one is really doing it for me and I don’t even own it yet! As I have mentioned before, I don’t often do a black smokey eye because I feel like it shuts my eyes and makes them look small. No bueno in my book! So, as an alternative to black, I often use purple tone eyeshadows. Now you can see why I am so excited about this palette! I also love that these palettes come with how-to Glamour Guides to help create that perfect Boudoir Eye!

Curly Haired Girls Dream

Growing up, I had really curly hair and I absolutely HATED having is brushed! I would get the worst knots and, no joke, my mom would have to use and entire bottle of detangler to get rid of them. Over the  years, I have never found a brush that gently detangles my hair after I have washed it. I used cringe when I would brush my wet hair because I could just feel it breaking but I have finally the solution! Well, technically my mom and sister found me the solution. It is called the Wet Brush and its thin, flexible bristles eliminate tugging, tearing, pulling, and ripping. I mean, this thing is literally GENIUS and you have to try it!

Off-Duty Chic!

Girl, look at that body!

The title of this post was inspired by that oh-so-annoying but oh-so-catchy LMFAO song where they repeat “Girl, look at that body” about a million times but then end with the unforgettable line…”I workout!”

Seeing as it’s the beginning of a new year and we are all starting fresh with many things in our life, I figured why not talk about the one thing that must be on at least 75%  of peoples resolution lists this year, to get into shape! Yes, while at the gym we will all be sweaty, most likely wearing no makeup and putting our hair in a ponytail but that does not mean that we can’t still dress cute! Gone are the days of the over sized sports team t-shirt and unattractive workout pants. Now, it’s almost impossible to not find cute workout clothes that you can actually go run errands in after your workout and not be completely embarrassed if you see someone you know or, God forbid, your ex-boyfriend! These clothes will actually make him think “Damn, why did I give that up?”

 

Happy New Year!

I know I took a bit of a hiatus for the holidays but I am back and just wanted to wish you all a Happy 2013! Let’s make it the best yet!

Looks of the Week!

I have two looks of the week and we will begin with the ever perfect Mrs. Justin Timberlake. Although I always think her face looks perfect, it’s hard not to with features like that, I am not always a fan of her fashion choices BUT she hit this one out of the park. I love the color and she is showing just the right amount of skin. I also love her hair and makeup. Perfection!

My second pick for the week is Rihanna. Now, I can bet a lot of people didn’t like this look but I loved it! The only thing I would have changed is the shoes. I would have chosen a gold strappy sandal vs. the pointy toe black pump but that’s just me. That choker she is wearing is just sick! I love the fashion risk she takes, when it’s not too over the top which does happen from time to time but you have to give her props for her fearlessness.
