I Can't Make Up My Mind...

First of all before I get into today's post, I just wanted to say a big thank you! Thank you to every single person that takes 5 minutes out of their day to read my blog! From the bottom of my heart, I could never tell you how much that means to me! This week, I have made a new record for most blog views in one day and it literally  brought me to tears! I am so excited about whats to come in the future for this blog because its going to be big things and it wouldn't be possible without your support! So THANKKKKK YOUUU!!!!

Now on to important things, like my hair! I'm going to be getting it done soon and I keep going back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, you get the point. I can't make up my dang mind at all! I have never even really had brown hair until now, and it was cool for the last couple of months and all, but I'm ready to get back to my roots. Literally, no pun intended hahahahaha! I need my blonde back, its who I am, it's in my soul, and it has been way too long! So the problem is, I can't decide weather to go all the way back blonde like I normally do, or kind of ombre' it and make it not so drastic. Please help! I need your opinions!

 Here are a few pictures of what I'm thinking. The Jessica Simpson Picture is what I always get! I take this picture with me every time I get my hair done. And the girl with the bob is just so cute! I'm contemplating getting that cut, or should I let it grow? I don't know!!!!

I'm Blushing

For those of you who know me personally, know that I am a blush queen. If asked, what's the one thing I can't leave home without putting on, its my blush. Well, that and mascara. They are equal in my book. So when I started seeing this huge trend of new blushes coming out everywhere lately, I was super excited!!

Cream blush is hot right now. You can wear it on your cheeks, lips, or even as an eyeshadow! I think its versatility makes it a great deal, even if your splurge and get a nice brand. The Nars and Make-up Forever cream blushes are by far my favorites. The colors are beautiful, they just melt into your skin without messing up your foundation, and they are perfect for sculpting and contouring! These new Clinique blushes are just so stinking adorable I cant help but love them! They are not necessarily a cream blush, but they were formulated to look like they are! If you are afraid of too much color or you shy away form blush, each of these products would be perfect for you. By just using a small amount, they really help give you just a natural flush in your cheeks!

"Dress" to Impress

 I am so happy to be able to go outside and actually take some pictures without freezing my tooshie off and getting sand blasted by snow! Crazy to believe that a couple of days ago there was about 8 inches of snow on the ground and now there is hardly any! I love the snow, but oh my goodness am I ready for Spring!! Come on warm weather! I got this dress at the end of summer last year and I can honestly tell you, I'm obsessed with it! I wasn't sure about the whole hi-lo trend when it first came out, but I really love it now! And this clutch is everything! A little bit of rebel with a girly bow! So chic! Of course I had to throw in a pic of me and B! He really is the sweetest baby angel in the world and tries so hard to take my blog pictures! Linking up today with Alycia from Crowley Party! Check out her blog! She is super beautiful and has great style!

Can the Women please stand up....This is for you!

Today is a little different here in my little space of blogosphere. I want to give women a shout out! I'm talking a stand up, pat yourself on the back, and take a bow shout out! I have been so inspired lately with seeing so many women that I know, and even ones that I don't, turn their dreams into a reality. Whether its going to school and achieving their dream of getting a degree, starting a monogramming business, making jewelry, or starting a blog, y'all have done it! It gives me hope and excitement for the future! When you work hard, have a positive attitude, and know that with God all things are possible, you can really turn the impossible into something real. It is my dream and goal to make this blog somewhere that all women can come to, to laugh, to learn, to relate, and to make a friend. I want to have my own boutique one day, and it's because of you ladies putting your heart into something you didn't know would be successful, but taking a leap of faith, that I know I can do that too! So thank you to all the women out there chasing their dreams and turning them into a reality! You are an inspiration and you never know just who's heart you are touching!

5 products I can't get enough of






Hey Y'all! We have made it half way through this week, thank goodness! I don't know about you but this has been the longest, nastiest week I have had in a long time! I need some sunshine in my life!

I wanted to write this post to share with y'all a couple of new products that I have purchased recently that I just love!

So I'll start with this new Elizabeth and James fragrance. If y'all don't know, Elizabeth & James is Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's couture line. Its very high end fashion and lots of celebrities wear their pieces. Sephora teamed up with them to create their own signature fragrance. Its exclusive to sephora, so no where else can sell it. The white bottle is more feminine and has notes of peony and tender musk. The black bottle is more of a sexy, going out fragrance with notes of violet, rich vanilla, and sandalwood. You can wear them separate or layer them together, but either way they are both amazing!

This benefit High Brow Glow is a must have! I'm completely obsessed and use it everyday! There are two colors, but I recommend the Champagne Pink for a beautiful shimmer and natural glow. Just add a little right underneath your brow to really highlight and open the eye!

Y'all if you have never used Bite products, you are missing out. Their lip treatment is one of the best things to ever be created! When I saw this double ended 2 color lipstick, I had to have it! First of all they are the PERFECT colors. A beautiful radiant orchid and a gorgeous bright pink! They are nourishing and glide right on! Plus I think this was like $12!! A must have!

I can not tell you how many of these nail polishes I have sold just from having it on my nails! Every time I am helping someone they ask me what color this is, and then go buy it! It's a formula X nail polish called Monumental and its just the perfect color neutral!

And last but not least, if y'all don't know, I love Origins products! This under eye GinZing is amazing. It de-puffs, brightens, and instantly makes you look awake! The little bit of caffeine inside this product and the beautiful glow it gives are why this really works! I have been using it every morning, and I haven't had tired eyes or bags ever since! Love this!!

You can find all these products on Sephora.com

Valentines Day Look

 



 I love this outfit for valentines day! BeBe has this dress in their window display at the mall, and I have walked by it everyday thinking to myself how perfect it would be for a valentine date! I love the colors of it and the fact that its animal print, which we all know I love, just makes it perfect! Plus the belt at the waistline is flattering for everyone! Pair it with a nude pump and a soft pink lip and I would say you are one hot date!!! Your valentine is not going to be able to take his eyes off you!
