Beachy Florals

Happy Monday,
On last weekend, my husband and I had the pleasure to celebrate with some good friends at their beachfront wedding.  The wedding was absolutely AMAZING!!! It was my first experience to attend a wedding on the beach and it was awesome. When I tell you that everything was simply beautiful, I mean just that....EVERYTHING!!!  Being that this was my first time attending a wedding ceremony on the beach, I didn 't know what I should wear, but I definitely wanted something cool and comfy, but chic.  I definitely knew that I wanted something floral in the spirit of Spring.  When I first saw this dress on Sheinside, I knew that it would be perfect.  A floral off the shoulder dress...perfection!!  Well, this was my look.  Hope you enjoy!

Here are a few snapshots of the wedding d├ęcor......

Prom Series #2. Soft Glam

Happy Monday!!!
So I am back with the 2nd prom series look which is featuring my sweet babysitter Makayla.    For Makayla's look, we went for a more soft neutral eye with a sheer pink lip.  This look complimented Makayla's choice of dress very well, which happens to be a blue chiffon sweetheart dress with a shimmery beaded bodice.  Absolutely beautiful and that smile can light up a room!!!  Hope you enjoy viewing this look.

Prom Series #1. 90's Grunge Glam

Happy Monday Loves,

I know, I know it seems like forever since I've posted, but I have been quite busy lately with the usual: work, kids, etc.  If you follow me on Instagram, you have noticed that I have been doing some freelance makeup and I really want to share it with you all.  Please note that I have not neglected the fashion side and I will soon get back to my outfit post.  As you all know, Prom season is in full swing and I have had the pleasure of helping to glam a few beauties for their prom.  I wanted to make this into a mini-series of the looks I have done as well as showcase these cuties style.  To kick this off, I am going to start with my beautiful niece Kardasia. 

For her look, she wanted to go with the  90's grunge glam.  Mysterious and Fab!!

 She will probably kill me for showing this, but this is the best face shot my photographer  Don't judge the bonnet!! We all have and use one

She was so gorgeous and it was so much fun doing this look for her!  Hope you enjoyed this first part to the mini prom series.  Please stay tuned!

My ChicBeauty: Budget Friendly Glam

Greetings Beauties!!:)

So, I am all about fashion and style on a budget.  It should be no surprise that this applies to beauty as well. I cannot go into retail stores such as Target, CVS, etc without finding my way over on the cosmetic isles looking for the next best item.  One day while on a "makeup browse" through CVS , I was looking through the Wet N Wild Cosmetics section.  Now, I absolutely LOVE their line of Matte lipsticks, but have never tried any of their eye shadows.   I have heard MANY rave about the Comfort Zone eye shadow palette, but has never been interested in trying.  I have too many eye shadow palettes as it is and didn't feel the need to add to the collection (need to apply that same thought to  This palette has been passed by millions of times, but this particular day I just threw it in the basket. I am soooooo glad that I did.

The Comfort Zone eye shadow palette retails for $4.99. This a great price for the bold  pigmentation it has.  It includes eight shades of browns and greens that are both great for simple everyday looks as well as dramatic evening looks.
This palette is budget friendly and great for beginners.  It has an awesome guide to show you where to place each shade.  To create the looks below, I simply used all of the shades on the left side of the palette in the exact order, with the exception of my transition shade.
