My Favorite Affordable Fall Makeup Look


I always get a lot of questions about my makeup and what products I’m using, so that’s why I have partnered with e.l.f (my favorite affordable makeup brand) and Gordmans to share my go-to fall makeup look.

What I love about this is that everything I am using is under $10 with most items being under $5! I’m breaking down my techniques step-by-step so you can try them at home easily. But don’t worry, this may seem like a lot of steps, but this whole look takes me less than 10 minutes.

This look is perfect for a fall date and is plain pretty.

2 Months Later – Silk’n Review


A few months back (see my first blog post here), I decided to try the Silk’n Flash & Go after being fed up with endless shaving. To be honest, due to my genetic makeup and being for lack of a better term a “mutt,” I get darker and thick hair on my legs that grows back fast. So anything claiming to even slow the growth, I was down to try.

So, just as the instructions stated, I have been giving myself treatments every two weeks on freshly shaved legs.

Oversized Statement


In case you can’t tell, my obsession with neutrals has gone to a new level lately. As I shop, I find myself only considering items that are grey, camel, white, black or navy (with the occasional exception for blush, olive and burgundy).

That single wardrobe choice has made getting ready and coming up with chic looks so much easier. I’m loving the simplicity and the refreshed approach of selecting outfits and can not be any more excited to come up with my finalized capsule closet and put it in the Glam-V.

Short update on that (because I’ve been getting tons of comments and messages asking) –
