Christmas in Michigan Lookbook

Hey, Friend!

Happy New Year! This isn’t a recap post of 2018, but I did want to quickly mention that I hope 2018 was a good year for you and if it wasn’t I pray that 2019 is joyous and filled with many blessing for you! I used to hate the beginning of a new year when I was little, probably because it meant Christmas was over, but now I love it. Not to sound cliche, but I love the idea of starting fresh and having a clean slate.

Anyways like I said this isn’t a 2018 recap post, but it is a recap of outfits I wore during our time in Michigan the past week and 1/2. We came to spend the holidays with my side of the family, and as always it was such a wonderful time and I miss them already even though we just left this morning.A lot of my clothes I wore were old or purchased at TJ Maxx, but if you would like to know were anything is from let me know!

Let me know how you spent your holidays and/or what you got either for yourself or someone else?

Thanks for reading and again Happy New Year!

Fall Fashion Wish list

Hello,
In my last blog post which you can find here I talked about some of the many things I love about Fall (btw do you call it Fall or Autumn?) including the fashion. I love fashion and shopping for clothes in general, but I especially love this time of year because its so cozy, but still cute and the colors this time of year are gorgeous. I have so many things saved in my shopping carts and wish lists on various websites and I wanted to share some of the pieces I have my eye on.

Asos

Torrid

Old Navy

H&M

Nordstrom Rack

And that is everything or at least most of the things on my wishlist currently, but they grow bigger and bigger on the daily. Let me know what pieces you are eyeing or currently purchased. Also, let me know where you love to shop!

Luxie Perfection Brush Set

Luxie Perfection Brush Set

 

Hello!
Wow has life been busy.  My husband and I have been spending the last couple of weeks getting everything packed up in our apartment, and I can say with a huge sigh of relief we are officially moved out as of two days ago. I am a little sad to leave only because that is the first place we lived together, but we are moving to a house with a lot more space, so I can’t complain to much. I’m sure I will be doing a few home posts soon since we will be painting and doing some cosmetic fixes to the place. Since we were busy with the move the blog wasn’t getting very much attention, but thankfully that is about to change because not only do I have more free time I have also made a few orders, so I have a few things coming in the mail to share with ya’ll the first thing being the star of today’s post which is this beautiful brush set from Luxie.

As you can see if you click the link or know about this brand this brush set can be seen as a bit of an investment. However, it’s been so long since I have bought new makeup brushes and so I figured why not make the investment. I received a Luxie brush in a Ipsy bag a few years back,and I still use it to this day so I know that they are well made and can last a long time. I haven’t tried out any of the brushes in the set, but I am excited to do so. I am especially looking forward to seeing how well the eye brushes work. Although part of me doesn’t even want to get these brushes dirty because they are so pretty. I would say off looks alone they are worth the money. They feel very sturdy and it’s easy to tell they are high quality brushes. Plus the bristles are very soft. Honestly for 12 high quality, well made brushes $110 isn’t that bad.
