Outfit Post: Easter Sunday

Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. We normally go to church on Saturday night, then have our traditional Sunday morning breakfast at T.C. Eggington's {which is so yummy}, little treats from my parents, Easter egg hunt {now it is just for my little cousins} and dinner with the family. I love being able to spend time with my loved ones today and everyday! This is what I wore to breakfast this morning.

Above all the eggs and bunnies, we can't forget the real reason we celebrate Easter! xo

I hope all of you are having a wonderful Thursday and don't forget to check out Paige's blog {here}!

Outfit Post: Free Spirit

I am so sorry I didn't post yesterday. I had the WORST 24 hour stomach bug. Ewww so happy I feel better today. Lets just say I was in the same workout shorts and t-shirt for over a day... It was bad. Anyways, today after I managed to go to work, I really wanted to get ready and put some normal clothes on. I decided to get my flared jeans out and pair them with a graphic tank and my fringe vest.

I definitely think a good pair of flared jeans are a must in any wardrobe. They are fun, playful and can even be dressed up for work or a party! I really want to try a lighter wash for my next pair after seeing {this} post today. LOVE! I hope all of you are having a fantastic Monday. {I know I am...92% on my Women and Sexuality quiz today BOOYA!} Bye!!

Outfit Post: Classy Camo

Today I decided to spoil myself a little and went to Target. I hadn't been there in forever so I was super excited to pick up some new things. I got this adorable camo tee in the mens section for $9.99! I was so happy I found it because I have been looking for a camo tee for ages. I also picked up this skirt for $22.99! They have so many different colors and I am temped to go get some more:)

Outfit Post: Preppy Camo

YAY! Finally it's Friday and my busy week is behind me! I cannot wait to go on a date with Jeff tonight! I decided to go a little preppy, but I had to throw on my camo jacket to add a little grungy-ness.

I love mixing around my styles and I definitely haven't worn this style in a while. What I wear is based on my mood, inspiration from Pinterest/Instagram or even from other blogs. Sometimes it's good to switch things up:) Happy Friday everyone!

Outfit Post: Almost Free

Lets just say, this week has been quite hectic to say the least. I coached a cheer camp for elementary school kids that are on spring break from 9-12 every morning this week {one more day!}. They are so fun and I loved being able to see them for a week straight! I also had huge projects due {no joke} in every single one of my classes at school. How ironic right?! This weekend will hopefully be super relaxing:) Today I actually got ready which felt soooo good. Sometimes being in workout clothes/constantly doing homework/running around makes me feel a little down. Doing my hair, putting make-up on and getting cute makes me feel so much better!

skirt Buffalo Exchange, skull tank Brandy Melville, DIY studded jacket, booties Target, belt {my dad's}, DIY necklace, vintage Coach bag {my grandma's}, cuff {Mexico}, vintage rings, Warby Parker glasses

A couple months ago my grandma gave me her old Coach bag. I cleaned it up today and decided to wear it! I love it so much! It is simple and will match with anything. I love to get old pieces and make them new again. I hope all of you are having a great week!

My Everyday Make-up Routine

Hey guys! Recently, I have changed my make-up routine a little and decided to share it with you. Since summer is coming soon and I have been in the sun more, my little freckles are starting to show again. When spring and summer rolls around, I always try and go lighter with my make-up because it gets so darn hot here in AZ plus I like the natural sun-kissed look. These products can be applied for light or full coverage.
1. Hard Candy Primer
2. Garnier BB Cream - Light/Medium
3. Maybelline Concealer
4. Bare Minerals Matte - Medium 
5. MAC Blush - Pink Swoon
6. Wet N' Wild bronzer
7. Bare Minerals Mineral Veil
8. Elf eyebrow palet 
9. Elf eyelash curler 
10. Falsies Maybelline Mascara - Brownish Black

Maybelline "Born With It"
Rimmel Moisture Renew "Pink Chic" 
Revlon Matte "Nude Attitude"

This different make-up routine started purely because I ran out of my MAC Studio Fix and ended up finding almost a brand new container of Bare Minerals in my make-up drawer. I used to wear it all the time and drifted away from it for a while. I will keep you guys updated on how I like it! The bottom lip sticks are perfect to create a pinky-nude look. I also sometimes apply a mauve lip pencil before putting the lip stick on. And just an FYI for the "Nude Attitude" color...apply it sparingly. Its very pigmented and thick if applied like a normal lipstick. I blot it on the centers of my lips when I use it to create an illusion of fullness. I hope I gave you guys some ideas on different products to try or found it entertaining. I always love to see what other people use in their make-up routine.
