Ipsy October

First of all, the bag for October? Super cute.
I mean, they have all been adorable, but this would be such a cute pop of color kind of clutch!


As far as the bag goes, it wasn’t my favorite, but I liked it!

The first thing I pulled out of the bag, also the least impressive and most expensive, were the tweezers.  They are from a company centered in another country, and with the exchange rate equaled out to about $20! 
I don’t generally pluck my eyebrows, and the tweezers I had weren’t great.  So though they aren’t my favorite thing I’ve ever gotten, it is a really nice product which I will put to use!

The next thing I got, which I was super excited to see, was an It Cosmetics Hello Lashes Mascara!
This is the first really nice makeup item I've received, and I am loving it! Just a couple of coats and your lashes are super long and dark.

I also received this Eve-NYC Hair Mask.  This is like a very thick conditioner, and smells faintly sweet, a bit like candy and vanilla.  It was a nice hair mask, but I wouldn't run out to repurchase it.

One of the things I have used the most and been the most excited about is the Peter Lamas Pumpkin Facial Scrub.  I swear, I could eat this stuff!  It smells so amazing.  It's not as course of a scrub as the St Ives Apricot scrub (my favorite), but it has been a fun little treat for the fall!

The final thing, which I have been using nonstop, is The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Committed.  This is the perfect your lips but better fall color, and I've really been loving it!  It is a mini sample size, so though that means there is less product, it is the perfect size to just stick in my wallet and go!

Overall, it was a really good bag!

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

Country Concert Lookbook

Early this fall I will be going to a Brad Paisley AND an Avett Brothers concert!  So when I found out King Ranch Saddle Shop was looking for inspiration when it comes to country style I had to share my ideas!  It is the dog days of summer, with hot days and cool nights here in the mountains, so I tried to create looks to fit all weather and styles!

Sassy  For the budding flower child who needs to show a bit of a wilder side and have fun for the night!   This is a crop top and basic jean shorts, which could be subbed for light wash ripped skinnies if the venue is going to be cooler (which is actually what I wore to a Flogging Molly concert last fall!). Crop Top: American Eagle Shorts: Hollister Flower Crown: Claire's


Sweet  This is for the sweet girly girl who still want to show their country side.  It is a simple white lace top dress, to which I have added a red flannel for those cool Summer nights.  The flannel could be tied around your waist during the day, or substituted for a d…
