WIWW - Summer White and Floral Prints

I haven't blogged properly in nearly a month and managed to only take photos of 2 outfits. I think this proves that I have been super busy! I have also fallen off the gym wagon and I need to get serious.

Cardigan: J Crew Jackie
Skirt: Banana Republic Factory Store
Shoes: BCBG via TJ Maxx
Necklace: J Crew Factory Store
Watch: Michael Kors
Rings: Forever 21
Nail Polish: Essie Cute As A Button and OPI DS Radiance

I bought this dress at TJ Maxx when I was looking for a few new things to take to my conference. I fell in love. It's Jessica Simpson and I feel like I stole it by only paying $25 for it. The BCBG shoes were another TJ Maxx find and steal for only $35. My love for TJ Maxx has been renewed. I also picked up a super cute Tommy Hilfiger tote for traveling. I had to resist the Michael Kors tote that I found. It was hard. I walked around with it for a bit until my mom said I needed to put it back if I wasn't going to buy it. Ugh!

Alright Ladies, I made it through my work week. I'm Tennessee bound Friday morning to visit my sister and her husband. I'm excited to go back to Nashville! Also, they plan to take us to "Pickin on the Porch". Which is basically a bunch of people in lawn chairs enjoying moonshine sno-cones. God I love Tennessee!!

New eyeshadow obsessions

A few weeks ago, I was in Sephora looking for a few things and they had eyeshadow on sale for $4. SCORE. So, I kind of went nuts and then had to pull myself back in. I'm completely obsessed with three of the colors I purchased. One of them isn't really a day to day shadow for me but I couldn't pass it up.


The first three are my favorites. I find that they go great with my Naked 2 Palette as well as the new Urban Decay shadows I purchased. They're shimmery but not too glittery. Which is important to me. 



I have been wearing the Sun-Kissed nearly everyday in combination with my Urban Decay Naked, as well as several colors in my palette and the Dying For Fudge that you will see later. It's an orange/gold color but not too much. It's actually kind of subtle. I tried to find these online but because they were sale products, I couldn't find them.

 

Retro-Powderpuff reminds me of Sun-Kissed but a little more pink. 


Sun-Kissed on top, Retro-Powderpuff on the bottom. Please excuse my veiny hands. Thanks! 



Dying For Fudge is my other favorite! It reminds me a lot of the other two but in the tan/light brown family. I use it for blending and it works great! I'm not sure what I'll do if I can't find something similar to these when they run out. The downfall of buying sale merchandise!



I haven't used the Meet Me At Midnight. The girl that checked me out told me this is one of her favorite colors ever. I might bust this out for my birthday next Friday. I'm not ready to discuss the fact that my 30th birthday is less than 2 weeks away. 


As you can see the Dying For Fudge is nice neutral color but the Meet Me At Midnight is definitely a little more shimmery/glittery than the others. It might be ok for the outer corners, if it's blended well.

I have so many new products I want to review for you but I don't want to overwhelm everyone, so I'll break them up over the next week or so!

Have any of you purchased any new products lately that I need to know about? The product junkie in me, needs to know!

Have a great Tuesday ladies! Only one more work day for me this week. I need a 4 day weekend in the worst way!

Lots to catch up on...

My blogging has fallen to the wayside lately. Crazy hectic work life means I'm super stressed and don't have a free minute. When I do have a free minute...I sleep. Yep, I'm super lame.

My busy season is upon me and I'm basically going to go non-stop until November. Don't be too jealous. :) Because of the chaos, I spent yesterday editing photos and writing posts for the week.

If you follow me on IG and Twitter, you have been keeping up with my life. If you really care and want to know what I'm doing, I recommend stalking me on social media...I keep that updated! I have done some shopping, traveled to Colonial Williamsburg for a work conference, baked 60+ cookies for a family gathering, mastered the sock bun and got super dressed up for our resident's graduation during my absence.

The posts this week will be random and out of order but let's start with some new nail polish I bought!







My aunt used to do hair for a living. She no longer does it but keeps her license so she can shop at the beauty supply store. The discounts are awesome! She buys us things on the regular and I got this awesome three pack of China Glaze polishes. Perfect for Summer! I have the pink on my toes and I plan to do the mint on my nails this week. Stay tuned! I got the entire set for $7.50. So cheap... I know! If you see any of these colors, you should definitely pick them up!

I'm happy to be back ladies. I hope to get caught up on all of your blogs too. I have been trying to read occasionally but it's not easy. I have a lot of proctoring this week so hopefully I can catch up. I'll probably be spamming your inboxes commenting on EVERYTHING!! :)

XOXO
