Sunday Social

Sunday, August 11, 2013

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Linking up with Neely for Sunday Social.

one. when you were little what did you want to be when you grew up? Ever since I can remember I have always wanted to be a teacher. I think because both my parents were teachers and my grandparents were as well. It just has always appealed to me.

two. what was your favorite way to kill time as a kid? I LOVED playing with my barbies. I had tons of barbies and a huge barbie house and my mom tells me I used to play with them for hours.

three. when did you get your first cell phone? I got my first cell phone when I was 13. It didn't end well. I went over my minutes and texts. oops.

four. what is your favorite magazine to read? Elle & Women's Health

five. what is the one random object people would be surprised to find in your purse? I don't really have anything in my purse that I think is that random. I do always have Colgate wisps with me just in case I need to freshen my breath or I have something in my teeth. you never know.

You Don't Know Jacques

Happy Friday Loves! 

It has been rainy here in GA allllll week. It's killing my vibe.
The power has gone out almost every day. No power and 19 screaming 4 year olds is not ideal.

I went for a darker color this week probably inspired by all the storms.

The color is You Don't Know Jacques by OPI

I Heart Summer

Wednesday, August 7, 2013

My Summer is officially over. I went back to work this week and school starts in a week and a half. In honor of Summer todays post is going to be all about Summer. 

one. Favorite bronzer for Summer? Nars Laguna

two. You're relaxing in a hammock, on a tropical island. What are you sipping on? Piña Coladas

three. Favorite Summer Lip Product? Tarte Amazonian Clay Lipsticks. They last longer then any other lip products.

four. Pool or Beach? I love the beach. I feel like the pool can get kind of boring after awhile.

five. Summer = crazy hair! What is your must have styling product? Beyond The Zone Curling Creme. I have thick curly hair & I do straighten it almost every day. When I want to give my hair a break from the heat I will use this to tame the frizz and the curls.

six. Sun bathing or fake tan? I could sun bathe for hours.

seven. Favorite Summer nail polish? Bikini by Julie G

eight. Any Summer traditions? Every Summer I love going to my grandparents in the UP. There are so many beaches and sand dunes. All my cousins come up for one week and we just have a blast.

nine. Favorite Summer scent? Bath and Body Works Wild Citrus Sunflower

ten. Favorite BBQ food? Hamburgers

eleven. What's your favorite summer proof product? UD Deslick.. If I don't use this my face will slide off in an hour.

twelve. Favorite Summer Vacation you took this year? Or your dream Summer vacation? The Cruise I went on in the beginning of the Summer.

What was your favorite part about Summer?

July Favorites

Tuesday, August 6, 2013

I haven't done a favorites post in awhile so I thought I would do one today. I don't have many beauty products to share with you but the ones I have to show you I love.

Stila Eyeshadow In Kitten- I have wanted this eye shadow for forever but just couldn't bring myself to ever buy it. It is a little pricey for a single eye shadow in my opinion. A couple weeks ago I decided to just go for it and buy it. It was totally worth it, it is my favorite all over eye shadow color. I have worn it every day since I got it.

Maybelline Dream Matte Powder- I rediscovered this powder last month and fell in love all over again. I don't know why I ever stopped using this. I have oily skin and this keeps me matte pretty much all day.

Nyx Butter Glosses- These glosses are amazing. They are pigmented and very smooth like butter hence the name.

Revlon Naked Foundation- This is the only foundation I have used all Summer. If I am not wearing my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer I am wearing this foundation. It doesn't feel like I am wearing foundation yet it has pretty good coverage.

Pop Pouty Pop Crayon- This was in my Ipsy bag last month and I fell in love. This is why I love Ipsy because I would never purchase something like this on my own.

Aqualillies for tarte palette- This palette has a blush, bronzer, highlighter, & 6 eye shadows. It is so convenient and the colors are gorgeous and perfect for Summer.

Sally Hansen VitaSurge Strength Gel- My nails were pretty weak and breaking all the time. I went to Sally's looking for a nail strengthener and came across this one. It works very well and I love that it is a gel and can be put on top of polished nails.

Lilly Pulitzer Phone Case- TJ Maxx find for $7.. score!

Songs- When I Was Your Man- Bruno Mars
Only Love- Ben Howard
Counting Stars- One Republic

Tv Shows- Dexter
Real Housewives
Pretty Little Liars

What were some of your July favorites?
