I recently bought this neon yellow shirt, and instantly knew I had to do a post with it. The necklace was made for this skirt, I love the pop of coral/orange. Also, my boyfriend and I are now engaged!! We are both very excited, and cannot wait for the big day. I am going to try my hardest to keep posting, wedding planning can sure take up a lot of my time. I hope everyone is enjoying the hot summer days =)

I haven't blogged in a while, so it is nice to get back at it. Between my two jobs sometimes it's hard to find the time, I am telling you, there are not enough hours in a day! The weather here in Chicago yesterday was amazing. It was about 80 degrees, but wasn't humid at all (me and humidity do not mix well)! Joe and I did nothing but relax and sit outside =) we also grilled some hotdogs. I hope you guys enjoyed your weekend and spent some time outside.

P.S. I desperately need a tan, before I start blending in with the wall!

Makeup brushes you need in your collection


1. Fluff Brush: for applying your eyeshadow onto your eye lid. You can either sweep on the eyeshadow or pat it on. If you pat on eyeshadow you will have less of the shadow ending up under your eyes! My favorite is the M.A.C 213 fluff brush.

2. Flat Top Foundation Brush: I love a good flat top brush for a flawless foundation look. They are so easy to use. I first use a circular motion and then I pat everything in. Stay away from "sweeping" your foundation with this type of brush, it makes it look very streaky. My favorite is the Costal Scents flat top brush.  

3. Kabuki Brush: I use a kabuki brush for powder. ALWAYS pat your powder instead of sweeping it, sweeping causes you to remove product off your face instead of applying. So always PAT on your powder to lock your foundation into place. My favorite is the Sedona Lace kabuki brush.

4. Blending Brush: This will be your best friend when it comes to eyeshadow. A blending brush is perfect for blending out those harsh lines and making everything look flawless. My favorite is the M.A.C 217 blending brush.

5. Contour Brush: You need a brush like this for applying bronzer, especially when you are contouring your face. A small contour brush will give you more precession and help you get into the hollow places of your face. If your brush is too big you will not get the same results you would if you were using a small brush. My favorite is the M.A.C 109 small contour brush

6. Angle Brush: This brush is perfect for so many different uses, it is amazing for sharp precise lines.I use a small angled brush for brows, applying shadow under my bottom water line and also creating a cat eye with a gel liner. My favorite is the M.A.C 266 small angle brush

7. Blush Brush: Everyone needs a blush brush =) I like using a smaller blush brush so a have more control over where the product goes. If you do not like using a smaller brush, you can also get a large blush brush, whatever works best for you! My favorite is the e.l.f. studio mineral powder brush

8. Sponge aka Beauty Blender: The most amazing brush you will ever own. A sponge gives you an absolute flawless foundation finish. If you have a foundation you think makes you crease a lot or just is not applying the right way, try using a sponge (beauty blender). When using one you can either use it dry or damp, use a patting motion not a dragging motion. It comes with a round and pointed part (the one pictured here has a slanted top), the pointed part is perfect for those hard to reach places such as: under your eyes and around the nose. You NEED this in your collection! My favorite is the Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge.

I hope you guys found this helpful, let me know what your favorite brush is!

Skirts, the perfect fit for you.

With summer right around the corner I have been looking at many skirts to add to my closet. Some people love skirts and some hate them. I thought I would put together a little guide on different types of skirts. Hope this helps! 





What is your favorite? I personally love maxi skirts, they are just so easy to wear and are so flattering. I also did a guide on shirts as well. Click here to check it out!

Organize it

So I figured since my face products in the bathroom were looking like a hot mess, it was time to clean it. Some Spring cleaning if you say! 


As you can see everything is just all over the place. I noticed  myself putting the product wherever after I use it, and then searching for it when I go to use it again the next day. 


So I just bought some simple clear acrylic trays at the container store. These trays have helped me tremendously, now every product has a home. After I used something instead of putting it wherever I put back in it's original spot, so now the shelf doesn't look like a disaster anymore!  I just love how simple and clean it looks, and so easy to find everything. 

Have you been doing any Spring cleaning?
