Hello everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! It still does not feel very fall like here in Indiana. With 90 degree temps lately, I am dreaming of slightly cooler weather. Today I am styling this amazing clutch from Sunflare. It is made from genuine leather that seriously feels so soft! It has two interior slip pockets and zip top closure. It is the perfect size to carry for a night out. This leather cuff is also from Sunflare. It has six strands of leather and then a single snap closure. It is very comfortable to wear and goes with everything! The two shirts that I am wearing are sold out online, but I linked some similar ones. I hope that your week gets off to a great start! Thanks for reading!

Hello! Today's look is super casual and laid back, which is normally my kind of style! This 3/4 sleeve top is perfect for this time of the year. I love the colors and I have been wearing it a lot! This denim jacket is perfect for transitioning into fall. Since it is cool is the mornings, I like to dress in layers. Then, when it warms up a bit, I can just take the jacket off. I have also been wearing this JORD Wood Watch on repeat. It is so lightweight and goes with everything! You can still enter the giveaway for a $75 store credit to JORD here!!!.

The Lash Project Mascara by Red Apple Lipstick

Hey everyone! I recently ordered Red Apple Lipstick's latest makeup product, their Lash Project Mascara!!! Now, if you are like me and have allergies, and are very sensitive to different mascaras, then you are going to love this one! I have been a fan of Red Apple Lipstick for years now and they never stop wowing me over their products. This mascara goes on so smoothly, and makes your lashes feel so hydrated. It is truly amazing! The thing that I love most about it though is that by the end of the day, it has not smudged and my eyes do not feel itchy, like when wearing other mascaras. Also, this mascara is formulated without any toxins, so I can wear it knowing that it is not causing me any harm! If you have never heard of Red Apple Lipstick then you should defiantly check out their website!


Also, you can check out this great video by Andrea of Red Apple Lipstick on how to apply and remove this mascara >>here!!


Hope your week is going great! Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Tried and True Makeup Products

Untitled

Today, I wanted to share some of my tried and true makeup products. These are some that I have used forever and always repurchase.



1. primer by Smashbox: This primer is amazing! Just a little bit goes a long way. To use, just apply all over your face prior to putting on foundation. It helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines.


2. eyeliner by Clinique: This eyeliner goes on really smooth. You can make it as dark or as light as you want. I have worn this for years!


3. tinted eyebrow gel by Tarte: I love, love, love this! It is super easy to apply and really looks amazing. I am a huge fan of Tarte products!


4. pressed powder by Clinique: I have tried a ton of different pressed powders and loose powders over the years. I personally prefer a pressed powder because I feel like I get better coverage. This one really works well. It is shine absorbing and oil free. My face does not feel oily by the end of the day when wearing this powder.


5. Rallye balm by Red Apple Lipstick: If you read my blog, then it is no secret that I love Rallye balm! This is the best chapstick around. I keep at least three tubes on hand at all times.


6. mineral warmth by bareMinerals : I have worn this bareMinerals warmth for several years now. It is a face highlighter. It can be worn alone or with blush over the top.


I would love to know your thoughts on any of these products as well as any of your favorite makeup products. Happy Friday! Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

I'm so excited to share this incredible JORD wood watch with all of you! I absolutely love this watch! The packaging that the watch was delivered in was very neat and organized. It is very obvious that this company is very detail oriented and you can tell that by the quality of the product that I received. JORD watches are made from real wood. When you think of a wooden watch, you probably think that it would feel heavy, right? Not this watch! It is incredibly lightweight and feels so comfortable when wearing it. This watch can be worn with anything and I have already received so many complements on it! Pictured here is the Fieldcrest- Zebrawood and Maple watch. This watch is hands down the most gorgeous and unique watch that I have ever seen! There are so many different styles and colors of JORD watches to choose from. You can view the entire women's collection here.

White After Labor Day

Untitled

Happy Labor Day weekend everyone! Today I wanted to bring up the topic of wearing white after Labor Day. There are many theories on where the saying, "No white after Labor Day" actually came from. Back in the late 1800's/ early 1900's, people would leave their homes between Memorial Day and Labor Day. They would head to seaside cottages and cabins in the mountains and would leave behind all of their winter clothing. They would take only lightweight and light colored clothing with them. Then, after Labor Day came to an end, they would go back to their original homes and no longer wear the light colored clothing. The rule of not wearing white after Labor Day has supposedly just kind of stuck over the years. Nowadays, I personally feel like wearing white after Labor Day is not criticized as much. I tend to wear what is appropriate for the season. If the weather is warm, then I will still wear white. I also love a good winter white sweater! What are your thoughts? Do you still wear white after Labor Day, or is that a cutoff day for you?

Farmers' Market Fun

Happy Friday everyone! Today I wanted to share one of our favorite things to do when we are free on the weekend. We love to head to the Farmers' Market near us! It is especially nice when the weather cooperates. These pictures were taken last weekend. The one that we go to has so much to offer! We love to buy fresh produce, flowers, coffee and baked goods. There is usually something different every time we go.


After we are finished at the Farmers' Market we usually head out to eat somewhere. We always love trying out different restaurants. Sometimes we will hit up a few boutiques/stores downtown. Do you enjoy going to the Farmers' Market? Have a great holiday weekend!
