Vanity Toppers #8

September 10, 2018

Today’s Vanity Toppers post is later than usual, but better late than never, right? I was admittedly selfishly busy taking in the last few weeks of summer and catching up on some much needed therapeutic travels with best friends from childhood. Gotta put self care first sometimes! That being said, I’m popping in today to share my August Vanity Toppers with you! Vanity Toppers #8 To be completely honest, I haven’t done a lot of product switch-ups this month in…

Subtle Summer-Themed Makeup

August 20, 2018

Important question.  Why do Mondays keep coming around? I swear the weekends fly by way too quickly these days. On top of that, I can’t believe we’re more than halfway through August.  Fall is just around the corner, and as excited as I am — I’m a HUGE fall lover — I wanted to share with you one of my favorite summer makeup looks I’ve been rocking pretty regularly. I love this look because it’s great for the office or…

Vanity Toppers #7

August 4, 2018

It’s the WEEKEND! And I am extra excited.  Yesterday at 5pm, my out-of-office went up for the week on my email — do not disturb this girl as I am in full vacation mode. I am heading to the beach for my family’s annual vacation and cannot wait to sink my toes in the sand, read by the ocean, and just do whatever I feel like doing without any expectations. Of course, I can’t leave without giving you my July…

Vanity Toppers #6

July 3, 2018

Hi there! I hope you have a shortened week or at least Wednesday off for 4th of July. I know this week of work will be extremely slowed down for me as most folks are out on vacation, though I did manage to get several meetings scheduled on me for today.  Having Wednesday off is a nice bonus, though, and I’m looking forward to celebrating the holiday with my husband, family, and friends.  A little parade action and some quality…

Foundation-less Look with all the Glow for Summer Nights

June 27, 2018

A zero-foundation look that will change your summer makeup routine. Happy Hump Day! Can you believe we’re a week away from 4th of July? This summer is flying, and if I’m being honest I’ve not had much time to soak up any of it. I’ve gotten in two pool days, zero beach time (other than a quick glimpse of the ocean at a wedding if that counts), and I’m still as pale as can be.  Self-tanner and makeup tricks are…
