What I Wore | Preppy for Autumn

Hello lovelies! This morning I woke up early to unload boxes of goodies at Ulta and I was able to finish three sections: hair tools, bath, and Mass skincare. I must say, I love unloading and organizing boxes of stuff onto the store selves -- even if the after effects of waking up early get me every time. For example, I've had two cups of chai at home today AND a venti coffee Frapp from Starbucks today and I'm still dead tired at 4:30pm [it is now, 7:30pm] -- caffeine seems to have no effect on me really.  

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*

What I Wore | Coral + Black

Hello lovelies! I had to go into work again this morning, so I decided to show y'all my after-work outfit today. Typically, I don't always change my outfit after work, but then again, it depends what time of day I'm working. Of course, there are some days where all I want to do is crawl into some sweatpants and a comfy tee, and cozy up with Netflix & either some tea or coffee.

Ulta Chic | 1940s-ish Inspired [Makeup Wise]

Hello lovelies! I'm back yet again with another work outfit, I was going to do my off-day outfit yesterday, but I forgot to take pictures until it was dark outside. Silly me. Oh well, perhaps this Saturday I'll get some non-work outfit pictures taken, especially since I'm thinking about attending a friend's bonfire that evening with s'mores and everything.

Ulta Chic | Thrifted Work Style

Hello lovelies! So, yeah, my last post was an Ulta Chic post, but life has been crazy for me this past week. I worked from Sunday through Thursday last week. Friday I was busy with life & movie night of watching Cap 2 with my siblings and some friends. Saturday, one of my dear friends got married [y'all can 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.

Ulta Chic | Easy Glam

Hello lovelies! Today is my third day of work at Ulta this week, and should be my last for this week. For my outfit, hair, and makeup I wanted to keep it simple, yet glam [in fact, I wore this same look last night, when I had to work last minute at Ulta]. This is going to be a rather quick post, as I have to leave for work soon. :)

Cleaning Out My Lip Product Drawer | My Beauty Picks

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! :)

What I Wore | Neutral Layers + A Pop of Red

Hello lovelies! How are y'all doing today? Today has been a fairly whirlwind day between running errands with my Mum, and sisters: Gaby & Hanne; fixing a bridesmaid dress [again], and doing several other things [which will be mentioned below]. I kinda wrote this post backward tonight, hence there isn't too much up on top. haha...well, continue reading for more. :)

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.

What I Wore | Styling A Graphic Tee + Kosher Casual Review & Giveaway

Hello lovelies! How are y'all doing today? Today I've been working on replying to blog emails, gathering inspiration for future posts, doing Chopped Kitchen with my siblings for lunch, stopping at Ulta to approve my hours, and dropping by the post office to mail a package. I'm not sure what I'm going to do tonight yet, but I'm guess that I will be either watching: BBC Robin Hood, DW, or The Amazing Spider-Man with my brother, Nathanael. Who, by the way, I have gotten hooked on Marvel, DW, and BBC Robin Hood the past couple of weeks. I'm such a good sister. *grin*

Ulta Chic | Black + Mint Accents

Hello lovelies! As y'all can see from the title of this post, I have decided to call my work posts Ulta Chic, which also means that I went into work. Well...today was my second day of working this week, but I was so worn out from working at Ulta on Tuesday morning, that I didn't do an outfit post. Since I worked on Monday at my other job & had Bible Study that evening -- to say the least I didn't get much sleep on Monday night so I was wiped out on Tuesday. Anyhow, let's get onto about my outfit for today.

Five Leather Jackets for Every Budget

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.

What I Wore | Autumn Days Are Coming

Ah! I come to discover that I adore autumn fashion, beauty trends, the weather, and just everything that surrounds the autumn season. Even though it was in the 80s today, and was on the rainy/stormy side today I was feeling autumn like inside, so I pulled out a summery/autumn inspired outfit to wear today. You may ask, why did I title this post "Autumn Days Are Coming" if it is in the 80s? Well, it is supposed to get down into the mid-60s starting tomorrow, hence the title.

Saturday Musings

Hello lovelies! How has your weekend been going? I've been working on various things, all of which I'm going to be sharing with y'all today.

  • 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.

Sponsor Love | August Edition

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.

1. TAMARLANAU Classic Floral Dress [$115] -- Currently I'm obsessed with just about everything in Tamar's etsy shop. Everything is feminine, classy, and chic! In fact, it took me awhile to decided what to feature in my Sponsors Love post, since I adore everything. Honestly.

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.

What I Wore | Work Outfit for Ulta

Hello lovlies! Yesterday I had my first full shift at Ulta, and I worked on stocking the shelves the entire time -- which was rather fun, since I love organizing things. I woke up at 5:30am to get ready for work, since I had to do my hair & makeup, and make a coffee before heading out. For my first shift I worked from 7:00am - 11:00am, and the time seemed to fly by, since it is a very fast paced work environment -- which I really enjoyed. After working at Ulta I came home for a quick lunch, before heading out the door again for my second job at my Dad's office to work in the afternoon. To say the least, I was wiped out yesterday evening. Especially since I typically don't get up most days until sometime between 8:00am - 9:30am.

What I Wore | Navy + Pink for Church

Hello lovelies! I'm going to be sharing what I wore to Church this past Sunday, since I didn't have time on either Sunday or Monday. My Sunday was spent going to Church in the morning, attending my brother's second baseball game in the afternoon/evening, watching some Food Network, and showing the film Thor to my sister's & brother for the first time. To say the least, my Sunday was packed.

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].
