Thankful Thursday – Powerful Leaders

michelle-obama

This weeks Thankful Thursday is an appreciation I have for Michelle Obama(Don’t worry, this won’t get political).  You don’t have to agree with her politics or who she is married to, but it’s important to recognize strong, intelligent women who aren’t the “standard” that is all over the media.  It’s important to every little girl growing up to not only see this but also let them know they too can get an education and aspire to be something great – no matter what that great thing is because they are just as special.

I hope you have a beautiful Thursday!

Fabulous Friday – New Lip Color

Who doesn’t love trying out new lip colors?  I don’t follow the trends for each season because it’s pointless.  If something catches my eye, I will check it out.  This color is called, “Mauve Outta Here” by Wet n’ Wild.  I love their stuff to test out anything new.  It’s cheap, you can blend the colors together well too, and if it doesn’t work you won’t feel ripped off.  A lot of the more expensive brands have this color and variations of this color that I may get a tube too.  This product does go on a bit dry and has a flat finish but it serves its purpose.  I’m enjoying it.  Normally I stick within the red family because it blends well with my complexion or the darker reds really stand out.  Plus, who doesn’t love a striking red lip color?

Would you be willing to try this color?

End of Summer?

We are approaching the end of Summer, so I’m getting the most out of my maxi dresses before it gets too cool. I love the color and fit of this dress. I could wear it every day. It’s from Target and was under $35. You can not beat that!
I paired it with simple makeup and hair.

Animal Print Makeup – Go Curvy

There is a weekly online show that I watch, and love called Go Curvy.  The video below is a segment on doing animal print eyeshadow.  I thought it was so awesome, I had to share it with you all!  This would be great to try for a fun night out.  I love playing with makeup to get different colors or effects because why not, right?
