Review: SmashBox Cover Shot Eye Palette in Ablaze

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share  my thoughts on the Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette in Ablaze. I won this palette in an instagram giveaway. Thanks to Teresa for this palette! You can check out her instagram HERE. SmashBox collaborated with Shay Mitchell (Emily on Pretty Little Liars) and came out with 7 different mini palettes. Each palette had a color theme. I was able to pick from any of them for my giveaway prize. The Ablaze palette stood out to me the most. Keep reading to hear more about this palette!

This palette seems to be available online only on the Sephora site. It's also available on the SmashBox site.

 The palette is pretty tiny and is great for travel. It comes with 8 shades that are a mix of matte and shimmer finishes. They call the shades in the palette "hot desert inspired shades". Half of the shadows are warm burnt orange/gold/bronzey shades. The other half are berries/pink shades. I don't get where the pinks come into play in a "desert" palette but it definitely caught my eye none the less.

Favorite Dresses for Spring/Summer

Hey Guys,
I haven't worn many dresses this spring because it hasn't been that warm. However, I usually live in them from the end of Spring through the Summer months. They are just so easy and effortless to wear. Below I have come up with of my favorite dresses for the spring/summer along with some shoppable examples of each!


Favorite Spring/Summer Dresses


Maxi Dresses

Maxi dress have to be my favorite of all! They are easy to dress up or down and I don't have to worry about the length of them being an issue at work. They are so comfortable and I love how they fit my body. I think any woman can rock a maxi. Its just finding the right style to flatter your body. I own a TON of maxi dresses but plan to buy more for this year. I have started posting some of my older ones on Poshmark so that I don't feel guilty buying more lol

Tee Shirt Dresses
I may be making up the name of these but they are basically shorter dresses that are made out of tee shirt material. They are casual dresses that look like long shirts or have a casual look of a tee shirt. I have seen these dresses all over the place and think they are pretty popular this season. I don't own any but plan to pick a couple up. These dresses are on the shorter side so people with large booties like myself need to be careful with the length. That being said, they are super cute and are perfect for a lunch date or afternoon shopping.
Blouse Dresses
This is another name that I'm not quite sure that I got right. The dresses that I am trying to describe take inspiration from blouses. They usually have pockets on the front and some have 3/4 length tab sleeves. Another trend that I am seeing with these type of dresses are lace front tops like we have seen with blouses in the colder months. I have seen both fitted and loose blouse dresses and this this is a great style for all shapes and sizes.

Skater/Fit and Flare Dresses
While I don't love skater dresses on me, I do love the style. For some reason,  flowy girly clothing feels weird on me. I like clothing either super tight and sexy or loose/baggy. I think skater dresses are super cute in general though and think they are perfect for the summer and spring months. Especially the tank top/spaghetti strap style dresses. I think the slinky almost cami like dresses are adorable. I have also seen alot with criss cross tops which is wicked cute!

What are your favorite style dresses for spring? Post your comments below!

Review: ColourPop Haul #2

Hey Guys,
Recently I shared my first ColourPop haul that you can check out HERE. My friend El got me some ColourPop products as an early birthday present. I still had other products on my GIANT wishlist and decided to pick up some more. All of these products will get used in the spring and summer months so that is my justification for ordering them lol. I still have a few items on my ColourPop list but I will save them for the fall/winter since the colors are more fitting for those seasons.So back to this haul... ColourPop came out with Sand, Nectar, and Pink Spring Collections. While the Pink Collection didn't really interest me, a bunch of items from the Sand and Nectar Collections did. I already talked about some in my last haul. Below are some more items from the Sand and Nectar collections plus other items that I've had on my list for a while. Keep reading to see what I got and to hear my thoughts on each!

April Favorites

Hey Guys!
I feel like the month of April has come and gone so quickly that I can't even remember it. I really hope that May and the upcoming summer months do the opposite and go by super slow. The warmer months are definitely my favorite. April had some beautiful days in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. I didn't really have anything too eventful in the month. I did the Walk MS in Boston for multiple sclerosis but that's about it. I did my second tutorial ever which you can check out HERE. My birthday is this week which I'm usually excited about.  I have mixed feelings this year since I'm turning 30. In terms of beauty/fashion, I haven't purchased any clothing because I plan to get some money or giftcards for my birthday. Since I am going to Mexico in July I want to buy some cute outfits for that. I also need some new clothing for the summer. My go to's are Fashion Nova and Express. Target also has really cute maxi dresses that I can wear to work. I have however purchased a TON of makeup. Ulta and Sephora had sales and El sent me an early birthday present from ColourPop. I also placed a separate order so stay tuned for another ColourPop haul review. I will be trying out a ton of products this month! Until then, you can check out what I was loving in April below!

OOTD: Cognac & Camo

Hey Guys,
One of my blogging goals for 2017 was to incorporate more fashion related content onto my blog. This includes more outfit of the day posts.  You will be able to see what's actually in my closet and how I style different pieces. Now that we are having warmer weather I am going to try to make more time for these. This past weekend it was beautiful out and I decided it would be a good time to take some pics. I went for a very casual look pairing some ripped jeans with a camo tee shirt and heeled combat boots. I also had a cognac colored hobo bag that I thought would look great with the outfit. I am very bad at making decisions and had a hard time narrowing down the pics for this post. Below you will see the details of my outfit. I have listed the exact items that I am wearing. I have also listed similar items if I couldn't find the exact items and some similar plus size pieces as well. Thanks to my boyfriend Colin for taking these pictures for me!
