Introducing Pastels

Introducing Pastels

|| Shirt – Similar, Similar || Jeans – Similar || Shoes – Macy’s || Statement Necklace – Similar ||
Yesterday I actually, as you can tell, had a photographer. A.K.A my Mama :)! It helps so much when you have someone to help. Not that it’s less awkward walking through the park posing but it’s getting a lot easier. Ha! 
I mixed pastels with black today to help introduce spring. I couldn’t find this exact shirt for you because I got it on the clearance rack at J Crew Factory for $10. But I did JUST get it, so I’m sure if you go they may still have some. 
I love my toothpick jeans from J Crew, I will definitely be buying more. Denim is so hard for me to shop for so I get super excited when I find a pair I like. I used to have quite a bit more muscle in my thighs, zero booty, and a smaller waist. So I would always feel like I had the “poopie pants” look by the end of the day and I needed a belt because they are so tight on my thighs I can’t go down a size to fit my waist. I also like the “real” denim feel not the stretchy (those are called Jeggings). So… maybe I’m just too picky but I’ve seen a lot of people with similar bodies so tell me where your favorite places are to buy your denim. These toothpick jeans do not get baggy on me, nor do I feel like I need a belt.
Yesterday’s weather was so pretty here in Fort Worth. We had some mad fog in the morning but after that the sun actually came out and I got to meet my Ray Ban’s again. Click here to see them.
And if you saw the camel on my instagram I got to go play with some interesting animals yesterday. Including Lemurs, Camels, Deer, and some Puppies of course.
Thanks for reading!

Very Berry

|| Cardigan – similar Nordstrom Rack || Tank – Banana Republic || Berry lips – BMB ||
Yesterday I went to a new church (new to me) with a friend. I honestly can’t remember the last time I stepped into a church, that is so bad that I’m admitting that to you but it’s true. So I was way nervous, but they were sooooo laid back and welcoming that I felt totally fine once I was there. (The hardest part is getting there.)  It was such a great experience. I will definitely be trying to make it back next Sunday. Ok, churchy talk is over 🙂 I just wanted to share my experience. 
The weather was kind of iffy though so I was unsure of what to wear … rainy, humid, and a bit chilly. So I went with this new tank I just got from the Banana Republic Factory store, thin  cardigan (from Nordstrom Rack), and some black skinnies with heeled booties. This purple tank will be one of my new favorite pieces, I’ll take one in every color please! [Come on warmer weather so I can actually wear it.] This color also matches perfectly with my “Berry” lipstick and I feel like since my shirt was just as dark as my lips I could wear this and not feel like all you saw when you looked at me was (wow dark) lips. BMB cosmetics are 15% off this week! Just enter code springbreak15 at checkout.
Hopefully this week will not bring ice! Especially for all of you that are on Spring Break this week. Tell me about all of your trips please, since we are building a house we won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. So I would love to dream.
Oh and for all of you that were wondering about my new hair, here it is! And yes I am in love with it!
Thanks for reading!

Trend Alert: Brows

How to sculpt your brows

|| Spray tan – here || lips – BMB Strawberry Cream || Powder Foundation – BMB powder foundation || Blush – BMB Rose || Balm – BMB brow balm || Lashes – Here and Here ||

Blonde ^^^

Brunette ^^^

Deep brunette ^^^
Sorry for the selfie! This picture was taken right after I shot this Brow Tutorial which happened to be right after I airbrushed myself with FakeBake. (Hence the little makeup I have on) But I do love this look. It’s super simple! I just put some powder foundation lightly on my face so I wouldn’t interfere with my new glow, added a tiny bit of blush, some mascara, lip balm, and BROWS! I love this new trend. I never knew how much of a difference brows make, but obviously they do! 
I’m also obsessed with my new lip balm I’m carrying. Pictured is Strawberry Cream, but I also have Dragon Fruit which is a hot pink. They are basically like chap stick and lipstick in one!!!
Below I’ve added a brow tutorial for sculpting your brows. I’ve had a special request for this one. There is a lot of different ways to do it, the one below is with a brow balm. If you are using a pencil it’s basically done the same. And if you ever feel like you look like Bert and Ernie just take a brow brush (these look like a mascara wand without mascara on them) and use that to brush your brows. The product will spread out and some will come off on the brush, allowing a lighter look.
I hope everyone has a great start to their weekend.
