I’m a Sweet Peach Girl

So as most of you guys know I love makeup. I’ve read so many reviews on the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette and have wanted it for so long! Every time I go to purchase it it’s sold out in-store. But the other day when I walked into Ulta I was in luck because they just got in their shipment of it and were fully stocked! I grabbed one and couldn’t wait to go home and try it.

Overall I absolutely LOVE this product. At first I thought it might hurt my eyes because it is scents and definitely smells like peaches which I love. It sounds weird but it smells amazing even when you wear the product! But the good news is the product doesn’t bother me. I can wear it all day and it’s awesome, it doesn’t come off when you wear it or anything.

Today I’m wearing a mix of White Peach, Cobbler, and Caramelized. I mixed the Cobbler and Caramelized colors together to achieve a mix of hues. I applied that on the top of my lid and then to accent underneath my eyebrows I use the Nectar and White Peach.
The colors are so easy to apply and is my new ‘go-to’ palette. I’m replacing my Naked Palette with this one for now! Underneath my eye I used Tempting to give an accent color.

What colors are your favorite in this palette?! I can’t wait to try a new peach smokey look next time I use it tomorrow. Above I posted a close-up of the palette so if you don’t have yet or aren’t familiar you can see what a close-up look of the palette actually looks like.
I love the fact that it has a mix of colors so the hues can look good on any skin tone which I think is a huge key! COMMENT BELOW if you love the SWEET Peach Palette!

Find Your Paradise

I had an awesome time during this photoshoot and I love this photo. It reminds me to ‘Find Your Paradise,’ with this dress and with the whole atmosphere of the photo.
dscf2576-2
This dress I wore I got as soon as the shoot was finished. It’s from Original Piece and I love the vintage style and the paradise print on this dress. I love that it’s a midi length (because it’s a perfect length for me) and I love that it’s a wrap style so I can adjust how it fits.
In the shoot I was barefoot when I wore it, but you can pair this dress with sandals too for a fun flirty fit. When I wore this look out at night I paired it with these new gladiator themed sandals from Target, and for a daytime casual look I paired it with Jack Roger sandals.
So Find Your Paradise and let me know what you think of this photo by Ralphi Reign’s Photography!
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS DRESS????

Pretty in Plaid Nails

So we aren’t in spring officially so the big question is what trend to do on your nails. It’s February so I wanted to get something done on my nails that is fall/winterish but still has a spring vibe.

I love the oxblood red color because it’s not a bright red but it’s not quite a burgundy color. I decided to get that color and do the plaid accent nails. I decided to get the traditional Burberry inspired plaid on the nails because I’ve never had the traditional plaid before. I love this nail design because it’s perfect for this time of year. It goes with all my ‘transition’ outfits and is the perfect nail design to take from day to night.
I absolutely love this nail design and I am so glad I got this design on my nails. Comment BELOW and let me know what YOU think of this nail design?! Have you join the PLAID CLUB?!

Puppy Love

So it’s been a while since I’ve written a ‘diary entry’ for you guys so here is one today. In case you guys didn’t know I got a puppy dalmatian {almost} five months ago at the end of the month. I’ve heard the saying ‘a puppy is a lot of work,’ or a ‘puppy will be your kid.’ But I never actually though twice about it until I got Gatsby my puppy dalmatian.

Gatsby is definitely a full time job. He is the cutest and sweetest dog and is very loyal but he takes work 24/7. I don’t even have time to watch T.V. or sit peacefully between working and taking care of him. He is already over 35 pounds and is definitely only going to get bigger. He is full of energy and I have walk him everyday and he is teething to bones are a requirement.
I enrolled him in puppy training at Petsmart and we are working on the first set of training exercises this week which he has been doing awesome at. I have what they call a ‘clicker’ which helps keep him focused when he’s training that work amazingly.
I’ve had a hard time with toilet training but I’m going to try a bell at the door so he knows to ring it when he has to go.

Overall having a puppy has been awesome, but also comes with a lot a lot a lot of work. If you aren’t prepared to take on a huge a responsible that will required all your time I don’t recommend getting a puppy. A lot of people think dogs are easy but they aren’t. You have to work with them in a healthy way and take care of them 24/7.
Gatsby is definitely a blessing, but is definitely in his terrible two stage.
Do you have a puppy?! What kind of puppy do you have?
