November Ipsy

It was a galaxy bag this month!   
I'm not sure what I could really do with this one, but it is so cute!

As far as the actual contents of the bag, I really liked it!  I feel like each moth they are getting better.  There is less and less stuff that I'm not crazy about, and more and more high end.  This was an expensive bag!

The first thing I pulled out was this lip pencil.  I hadn't ever heard of this brand before, but the full size is $28.  It is a really nice matte color, and I've really enjoyed using it!

I was excited about this high end mechanical eyeliner (in black, "wild child"), that retails for $14.  Upon using it, I was pretty disappointed because it was dark at all!  It looked much more grey on than black.

I wasn't exactly excited when I saw this, but it has probably turned out to be my favorite in the whole bag!  It is a mattefying, but also is really moisturizing and feels very nice on the skin.  I have had very dry skin lately, and I've been using it every morning before I apply my makeup.  This moisturizer is full size, and normally retails for $19.95!

This is China Glaze Nail Polish in Techno, which goes on Amazon for $8.  I have actually not had a reason to have sparkly nails this month, so I haven't tried it yet, but it is gorgeous!  I can't wait to wear it with red this Christmas!

Finally, I got the Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara.  A full size retails for $20!  I'd heard a lot about this and was super excited to try it... I have to say, I was disappointed!  It looks amazing on, but it runs down my face like no other!  Besides that, it creates really full long lashes, just don't wear it when you need long lasting makeup!

Overall, it was by far one of my favorite bags!

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…
