Fall fever

Good afternoon! I feel like I've been so incredibly busy that I haven't even been able to think about sitting down and posting anything, so I figured I'd do a style post from a couple days ago. 

Now that the weather is getting colder, I've been all about scarves and tall leather boots. 
I love this handkerchief scarf I picked up at my favorite consignment shop a few weekends ago. I love the color, as it added such a great pop to an otherwise dark attire.  Who said you can't wear brights in fall/winter?

bareMinerals: first impressions

So I've been told by another blogger and friends of mine that I need to try bareMinerals, but I didn't know where to start. I spent over an hour in Ulta yesterday looking at their collection but couldn't decide on what I should get. I spent the majority of my time pondering over a primer, that I decided I needed to do some more research on before laying down $24 dollars for, and I was also told that their foundations were really good. If I hadn't just bought a new foundation from NARS last week, I might have tried that, but instead I went for a holiday pack of their loose eye shadows. 

For $39 dollars you get 10 neutral, very wearable eye colors-- that are stunning. I've never used a loose shadow pigment before, but I decided to give it a go anyway.

TAG: Confessions of a Shoe-a-holic

Welcome to the Shoe-a-holic tag! I found this online and it sounded fun, so I thought I would give it a go. Shoes are definitely a vice of mine, as I'm sure you can tell by the photos above. *blush*

Top 10 Holy Grail: Makeup Edition

Have you ever noticed that there are a few products in your makeup stash that you keep repurchasing over and over again, or maybe you've hit pan on months ago but you're still trying to scrape the last little bit out before going out and buying a new one? 

These are my picks for that exact scenario. These are 10 products that I can't seem to live without and that I seem to reach for far more often than some of the other products in my collection. 

In no particular order...

So it all started when I spotted this tribal/western top from the brand Happening in the Present from Nordstrom Rack. I was there over the weekend and spotted it on the mannequin , but when I discovered it was the only tee in my size, I decided to pass it up as it would probably be such a hassle if I could actually find somebody to take it down.  
A day later I went back for it. I got to looking around my closet and realized that I had quite a few things that would actually look really nice with it and that I didn't have anything quite like it already.

The season of plaid

This weekend had me seeing red. I spent my rainy Saturday running errands with a friend and doing a bit of shopping. After a long work week, I was looking forward to wearing something comfortable and casual.

Hello October

Fall is officially here!

Not only have I been spending the past few days fall-a-fying the house, but I've been fall-a-fying my wardrobe. Even though the weather has been pretty nice and in the high 60's, low 70's,  that hasn't stopped me from wearing my favorite autumn trends.
