After coming home from work, I decided to change into the outfit you see in the post, mostly because I really wanted to wear my new jumper from OASAP and it was slightly chilly today -- both good reasons to pull it out to wear. *smile*

see pictures from the wedding here] and I did the makeup of several of the bridesmaids & the Bride; I also helped with plating & serving the food at the wedding. Then on Sunday I had church in the morning & my brother, Nathanael had a Fall League baseball game that evening at Butler -- he hit his first triple in High-School baseball that night. Lot of fun, but tiring times.

First let's start off with some background and disclaimers. I've been only wearing beauty products since I was 20/21, and for the first two years I only dabbled in lip products: mostly colored lip balms & lip glosses. Then I discovered my love of lipsticks in the autumn of 2012 and I quickly built up a collection of pink & berry toned lipsticks all from the drugstore. Then I decided to be brave, and discover the red lipstick that would work for me in 2013 -- the year of finding the perfect red lipstick for me. Since then I've received some lip products to try out from various companies, I also receive lip products in subscription boxes, and also I typically never pay full-price for any of my makeup [coupons, clearance racks, and sales are my best friend].
So, since I'm a lip product junkie, I will have a good number of products in my collection. I know that not everyone needs to have this much personally, and I'm not trying to brag either. I'm just sharing something that I love with y'all! :)

Oh, during the first of the half of the week in the coming week, there won't be too many posts as I work Sunday - Tuesday; have the Seniors Luncheon on Wednesday; have to refashion my dress for a friends wedding sometime before Saturday; and I will be doing the bride's makeup [and anyone's hair & makeup, who need help] for said wedding on Saturday; oh, and I'll be be helping with serving the food at the wedding too.

Today I have a rather fun post to share with y'all. I don't know about you, but I have come to really love leather jackets during the autumn/winter season. They are perfect to throw over a tee shirt and skirt, jeans and a tee shirt, or even a super girly dress. At this point I can't afford a real leather jacket [unless I can find one in a thrift store], so I'm going to be sharing both faux and real leather jackets with y'all -- something for every budget.

- I've been working on ripping out and moving a zipper on a bridesmaid dress for a friend. It is nerve wracking taking a zipper out, and cutting away some of the fabric [otherwise the seams would be too thick] to move the zipper over an inch. I'm also having to move the dress label and sash.

Hello lovelies! Today I'm going to be sharing a late addition of Sponsors Love for the month of August. But hey, it is better late then never. Feel free to check out all of BF's sponsors websites, browse, and share your favorites on social media.
2. LEL Pack and Go Tall Dress [$55.20] -- Browsing through LEL's site, I stumbled across this adorable black skater style dress -- just in a longer length. I've been really into skater style dresses and skirts recently, just most of them are wayy too short for my taste, this one looks just about perfect for my height.

Whilst on Monday, I went with some of my sisters and Mum to Simply Chic [our favorite local consignment/thrift store] & Trader Joe's in the morning, cleaned out candles with Gaby [tutorial can be found here], and played Scrabble with my family in the late afternoon/evening before getting ready for bed [me & Gaby teamed up and won the game].
