Friday Favorites

1. Forever [2014] Television Show -- I just started watching this show on Tuesday evening and I caught up within 24 hours. To say the least, I'm addicted to this show and I can't wait for more episodes to air. The show is a mix of Doctor Who, Sherlock, and something else [can't decided what] -- plus it stars Ioan Gruffudd.

2. Gracepoint [2014] Television Show -- The American remake of Broadchurch [another show which I enjoy watching], has been good so far. At times I get confused why they mention so many American things, than it hits me that it takes place in America, not UK. Duh. Also this show stars, David Tennant [who also appeared in Broadchurch].

Ulta Chic | Black & Leopard Print

Hello lovelies! How are y'all doing? This morning I attended Barry Stebbing's nature art class and I worked on improving my watercolor skills -- which was great fun, since I really enjoy working with all types of paint mediums. After class we came back home for lunch, and I had to get ready for work at Ulta this afternoon/evening.

What I Wore | Hunter Green & Cream [+ Sweet Minerals Review & Makeup Tutorial]

Hello lovelies! How are y'all doing? I had yesterday and today off from both jobs, so I've been taking that time to work on blog stuff and I visited our art museum in downtown Indy this afternoon with some of my family. That was lots of fun! As I really enjoy looking at the art work -- it's the artist in me. There was even a special section in our museum about a painting that they bought after World War Two from a local veteran [who traded for it from a Russian officer], and they have been trying to locate who all the original owners have been for the painting for awhile now -- with no success. All very interesting.

What I Wore | Mixing Prints: Stripes & Leopard Print

Hello lovelies! It has been a busy weekend around here with our Church celebrating their 50th anniversary on Sunday [I helped with serving cake & punch after a special evening service], I worked Saturday afternoon/evening at Ulta, and then I worked at my Dad's office today. October and early November always seem to be very busy months for us personally, so it kinda explains the lack of posts, though I'm working hard on creating a library of posts right now.

Friday Favorites

Hello lovelies! It has been awhile since I've done one of these Friday Favorites posts, and since I wasn't able to do either an outfit post or a makeup tutorial/review post today [Gaby had to take her nice camera to work today], I thought I should do a Friday Favorites post. *smile*
1. Burberry My Burberry perfume -- After trying this scent out at work last weekend, I've been obsessed with the smell, the price not so much so I'm saving up my Ulta points to hopefully purchase this perfume sometime this year, or early next year.

What I Wore | Coral for Autumn

Hello lovelies! I've had a packed day today with work all morning [it was TASK day, so I was unloading boxes and stocking shelves the entire time at Ulta], came home for lunch before heading out for most of the afternoon of shopping with my Mum for the Seniors Luncheon which is tomorrow at our Church.

If you are a newer reader, the Seniors Luncheon is an event that I have been apart of since my junior year of High-School [which was 2007], but me and Gaby took over the event last Spring and have been running it ever since. We prepare and serve a lunch and dessert to the elderly in our Church and sometimes their friends, once a month, on either the second or third Wednesday of the month from about March/April to November.  It is lots of fun, though a bit tiring after standing on your feet all day working hard.

Gaby's Skincare | My Beauty Picks

Oily and acne prone skin is never fun. Add on top of that combination and extremely sensitive to any and most products and you have a hard time finding anything that works. Everyone’s skin is diverse, and what works for one might not work for another. That being said, I thought it might be a help to some of you to know what products I have found to work for my skin. I have battled moderate to slightly severe acne since I was about 15. I have tried many different face washes and moisturizers. The products I have listed before are the ones I have settled upon. (Although my face wash does switch up a bit in the hope to find the one that will really clear up my skin.)  Without any further ado, here are the current products I use on my face.

1. Coconut Oil - Let me just say that I absolutely love coconut oil. It is seriously the best. Whenever I am having a really bad breakout I reach for coconut oil. I lather it onto my skin and massage it all over. Then I massage my Yes to Grapefruit Exfoliator right on top, then rinse it all off with water. I also love coconut oil if my skin is really dry. I add just a little bit with my finger to the dry patch and let it do its work of moisturizing. I also use it as a body moisturizer after I shower.

What I Wore | Colored Jeans for the Weekend

Hello lovelies! I had to go into work this morning/afternoon, so of course, I didn't wear this outfit [I did wear the blouse to work, with some black dress pants, hot pink cardigan, and black skechers]. Anyhow, this is what I wore after-work, since I wanted to wear something autumn-ish, colorful, and comfy.

How To Dress | 1960s Inspired

1960s Inspired

Hello lovelies! I have been asked a lot to share how to dress vintage everyday a lot over the years, and recently I was asked via email by a reader how to dress 1960s inspired every day. I thought it would be lots easier to share my thoughts via a post, that way I can share lots of pictures to help show my points and ideas. Also, if y'all are interested, I could make this into a type of series of how to dress a certain way perhaps: 1940s inspired, ONCE inspired, DW inspired, etc.... Would you guys be interested in this type of series?

Autumn Fashion Inspiration

I have a serious weakness for autumn fashion: the cozy layers, cute jumpers, adorable boots and booties, scarves galore, and just everything that comes with the cooler weather. I never really realized how much I loved autumn fashion, until this year when I was suddenly inspired with all these cute outfits to wear [and not enough day offs to wear them]. When you can only wear black and white clothing to work, it really puts a damper on the autumn spirit of dressing. Thankfully, I can wear all the autumn inspired clothing on my days off, after work [though sometimes I don't change], and when I go into my Dad's office to work.

What I Wore | Tunic + Jeans for Autumn

Hello lovelies! Today was my day-off from work, so I went with my Mum and sister, Gaby to visit downtown Indy this afternoon for our Mum's haircut and to show them Fountain Square and of course, visit the local frozen yogurt place: Cultured Swirl [which I had mentioned here before]. On our way home we stopped by at Starbucks for some coffee and I decided to go with my autumn favorite in latte form: Salted Caramel Mocha Latte. Which if you haven't tried it yet, do give it a try before they run out of salt in either December or January. *smile*

What I Wore | On Wednesday I Wear Pink

Hello lovelies! Today was a fairly relaxing/lazy kinda day, as me and my sister, Hanne, went over to a friends house to just hangout and played various games. Oh, and we also made crescent roll hot dogs for lunch -- which was a first for both me & them.
