Nail Polish: "Lovie Dovie" & "A Cut Above"

Let me let you in on a little secret... I don't discriminate against pink nailpolish! Lately I've been loving Essie polishes, especially this color combo!

Tutorial: Coral Paradise

Hello loves! ! I was totally inspired by the first day of summer and came up with this summer coral paradise look. I've been loving coral this whole spring/summer and it's definitely become a staple in my life:)

Face of the Day: Birthday Makeup

Ok... so this post is LONG overdue since my birthday was in May... but hey, better late than never, right? LOL! I just loved how I did my makeup for my birthday, and I think it's super fun and girly, so I finally found the pictures I took that night and wanted to show y'all what I did.

Smoky eye with glitter, peach cheeks, natural lips!

Outfit & Face of the Day: 7.7.12

Hello beauties! Here is a sassy outfit and face of the day for you all! Today I wanted to have a sexy outfit that I was able to wear during the day with a girly touch... I love that flowers are in, so I wore my flower-printed espadrille wedges, a bright pink dress with a black slip for a bit more coverage, and a rose ring to match:) The video at the end of this post includes this OOTD and a "What's In My Purse" tag as well!

☼ Summer Collaboration Giveaway! ☼

I have very very exciting news! I'm doing my first collab giveaway with these gorgeous girls! Thought I'd let all my blogging beauties know about it just in case you want to enter! ;)

Nail Polish: "Plum Seduction"

Hello beauties! I wanted to share with you swatches of "Plum Seduction" - a Revlon color that I have really enjoyed wearing during the summer... It's bright and fun, but still classy. Definitely perfect for wearing to the office during the summertime! I've always been a really big fan on Revlon nail polishes too. They dry quickly, have great pigmentation, and don't require alot of maintenance throughout the week. Normally I don't even get any chipping for at least 3-5 days!

Tutorial: Smokey Seine

 I feel like I'm whoring out this Sigma Paris Palette, but honestly, I'm in love. Full review to come! My other tutorial was more on the bright side... so I went a little more neutral on this one;) 

One of my favorite looks I've ever done!

Outfit & Face of the Day: 7.5.12

So here is another bright, fun outfit of the day! This was the first time I actually filmed an OOTD and I've decided I really like doing them! I was always intimidated because I feel like I have a really simple, sophisticated style not worthy of showing outfit of the day posts! But turns out there are other simple folk out there too who enjoy them ;)

Face of the Day 6.8.12

Here is another face of the day that I meant to share forever ago... Sometimes you just gotta do a pop of color! I used to be so afraid of wearing colored eyeshadows, especially during the day! I don't have that same fear anymore though... In fact, when I wear bright shadow I seem to be in a happier mood throughout the day - it makes me smile! :)

Outfit of the Day: 6.11.12

Here is another "catchup" outfit of the day! I had to share this one, it's featuring one of my new favorite dresses for the summer! The print is so bright and fun -- and although I may be wearing it to work, I can at least feel like I'm on vacation on a tropical island somewhere thanks to the vibrant colors! ;)

Tutorial: Parisian Peacock

Hello beauties:) This is the first look I came up with when fantasizing in my head how I was going to use all the amazing colors in the Sigma Paris Palette! I really wanted to do a play on the different colors of blue featured in the palette, so this is the finished product.

Outfit of the Day: 6.10.12

Hello loves! Summer is finally here in the Pacific Northwest, so this means I can finally bust out the dresses in the back of my closet! I love this particular dress because it is the first maxi dress I've ever owned! I honestly used to hate how maxi dresses looked on me and I felt like they didn't flatter my body... but over the years I've realized they actually look pretty good and you can cover up while still looking cute. I really enjoy the high-to-low trend going on right now too! Just an FYI, if I was able to find the item being shown online I linked the site for your convenience in the captions of the photos!

Face of the Day: 6.7.12

Hello loves! So as you know, I'm playing catch up with my blog... hope y'all don't mind a million posts at once! Here was my face of the day feauturing the Sigma Paris Palette back in the beginning of June. Love this look and I'm obsessed with this Palette in general! Go pick one up if you haven't already! :)

Outfit of the Days: Playing Catchup

Ok, so I originally wasn't going to post these outfits because it seems rather repetitive to someone who follows me here and on instagram, but hey, why not? This way I can list where I actually got the items! I'll be doing more detailed OOTD's from now on too! Hope you enjoy! :)

Outfit of the Day 5.18.12

Nail Polish: "Flip Flop Fantasy"

So it's FINALLY summer in my neck of the woods! ! Seattle is known for Juneuary... January weather in June! We have had rain rain and more rain... but come July 4th, the weather usually clears up. Lucky for us, that is what happened! Just because the weather sucks though doesn't mean I haven't been pretending it's summer... I mean, why not, it'll get here eventually right!? LOL! I have been painting my nails with China Glaze's Flip Flop Fantasy since the beginning of June... and it truly has become my favorite summer nailpolish!

A Summer Must-Have!
