Ipsy: July

The bag this moth is so cute!  It has  little beach umbrellas all over it!  And what came in it was no joke either!

The first thing I got was a flat shader brush from Vasanti.  It is a very nice brush, and very soft, I am just getting a little tired of being sent this type of brush... I have plenty now.

This Makeup Forever Mascara is probably my favorite item I've gotten out of a bag thus far!  It doesn't move, at all.  I wore it for 18 hour days in the hot sun and water rides of Disney World and it stayed perfect!  Not only that, it makes your eyelashes look amazing, I highly recommend this.

This is a single eyeshadow from The Balm cosmetics in Matt Moskowitz.   It is a very pretty color, has great staying power, and the packaging is adorable!

I was truthfully pretty unhappy about this...  It is the Eve-NYC Get Glossed Hair Serum.  I just got a hair oil from them last month and gave it very bad reviews because I don't use hair oil often... So they send another.  It smells good and does it's job, it's just not for me.

Ok... I kind of cheated with this one.  I was sent the OFRA cosmetics lip liner, and I don't use lipliner,so I traded with my friend for this Shray Ms. Amazing paper face mask.  I haven't tried it yet, but I like it better than a lip liner and I am excited to give it a shot!

Over all (not counting what I traded) I liked all but one product in this bag a lot!  Now be prepared... August is my final month :(

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…
