Stylish Sundays: Plaid Leaves

I’ve been sick for a little over a week, which means I’ve been wearing lounge wear since my last outfit post. So when I woke up on Saturday and it was crisp and I was feeling a bit better, I decided that proper clothes were in order and I pulled out my favorite skirt.


I’m wearing a White Oxford from Gap, Camel Tie Back Sweater from Loft, Plaid Leather Trimmed Skirt from The Limited, Hue Black Tights and Studded Asos Booties.


For my Jewelry I only wore my Kate Spade Gumdrop Earrings.

On My Face: Nars Sheer Glow in Siberia, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla, Nars Blush in Deep Throat, various Lancome Eye Shadows, Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Bourbon, Benefit Watts Up, Benefit They’re Real, Lancome Rouge In Love Lipstick in Madame Tulip.


I adore these booties, they’re probably my favorite shoes ever, and they’re so comfortable.


Here’s Howl looking quite dapper in his hoodie. I love him in little shirts and things like that, but this is one of my favorites, next to his raincoat which is just plain adorable.

Since this post is going up late, I’ve decided to include some of the better outtakes, because we all know I don’t look this fabulous on the first try.



and I’ll end on an adorable outtake, Howl blinking during his close up:


What I Wore: Birthday Girl

This post was meant to go up yesterday, but I am at the mercy of my photographer (my husband) and sometimes he gets super busy, and my photos get pushed to the wayside. I finally managed to get him to edit them, so here’s my what I wore for my birthday post.

I don’t know if you’ll remember but I said I wanted to recreate this outfit that Emma Stone wore this year. I knew we were going to have a really laid back day, so I wanted my outfit to be nice but super laid back as well.


I wore this Gap Fitted Boyfriend Shirt in White with Gap Legging Jeans (mine have zips at the ankle) and Toms.


I also wore my Madewell Drifter sunglasses and for my hair I pulled it up in a low messy bun and swept my blunt bangs to the side. I actually really liked them this way and haven’t stopped wearing them that way since. My earrings are my Kate Spade Small Square Studs in Silver


On my face I wore: Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Siberia, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla, Nars Blush in Deep Throat, Lancome Eyeshadow in Metallic Taupe, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Bourbon, Benefit Watts Up Highlighter, Benefit They’re Real Mascara, YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in #9 Cool Guava and Makeup Forever HD setting powder.


I was completely in love with this outfit. It was absolutely perfect for the day, and I managed (with the help of an apron) to keep my white shirt white during meal times which is an amazing feat for me because I’m insanely klutzy.


Howl thinks he’s a Vampire now and wants to know why he doesn’t sparkle! I keep telling him only Faeries sparkle.

I’ll be doing a post on what my husband and son got me for my birthday very very soon so be on the look out for that.

Spending Ban Fail! or Collective Haul… Again

So I know I was on a spending ban, and I was only to buy necessities. And I did mostly only purchase necessities. But then there was nail polish and I couldn’t help it.

So first I placed an order to Murad and ordered another Acne Kit, this time without the mattifying lotion because I hated it. This kit contains a face wash, exfoliating gel, skin perfecting moisturizer, Clarifying mask and acne spot treatment.  I also ordered the Pomegranate Exfoliating Mask.

Then from Macy’s I ordered the Sheseido Sun Proctection foundation in SP10, which doesn’t match me so I’ll be returning this weekend, and a Lancôme Nail Polish in Rose Macroon.

From a few different trips to Sephora I picked up the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, Illamasqua Mottle Nail Polish, Nails INC Stratford Mirror Metallic Polish, Nails INC Kensington Caviar Nail Base and Kensington Caviar 45 Second Top Coat. Pictured, but shouldn’t be because it was in a previous haul and I forgot, Illamasqua Speckle Nail Varnish.

Then I needed new Shampoo, you’ll find out why in an upcoming post, but I went to ULTA and got a new Brush and Ouidad PlayCurl Shampoo and Conditioner. It smells amazing and I love it so very much.

I will of course be doing reviews on all of these items, and when I get around to it the polishes will be on the proper pinterest boards.

The only things I didn’t need that are pictured are the nail polishes, and I just couldn’t help myself. Just ask my Aunt, she went with me to the VIB Beauty Insider Event where I bought Stratford and she witnessed me freaking out over the fact that they had it.  It’s an addiction, and if I’m not careful I’m going to find those My Strange Addiction people knocking on my door.

Stylish Sundays or Easter Fail

Today’s post was meant to be what I wore for Easter, but it was cold and we didn’t have a lot of time to take pictures before we had to leave for Sunday dinner, so I ended up messing up all the photos. My head shot turned out well so instead it will be a makeup post.

I was wearing YSL Touche Eclat Foundation, which I love, except it broke me out terribly and completely ruined my Murad Test. Like horrible awful allergic reaction. I’m redoing the test though, so instead it will be 2 month test.

I have on Nars Deep Throat blush, Benefit Leggy Eyeshadow with Too Faced Ever After in the outer corners, with Urban Decay Bourbon 24/7 Eyeliner and YSL Shocking Mascara. I also used Leggy as a cheek Highlight and YSL #9 Cool Guava for my lipstick.

I teased my hair a bit and put it in a bun and pulled out a few pieces around the front.

The Dress and Necklace are from H&M as were my shoes and you’ve seen them all before in a haul. 

Face of the Day or Don’t I look Pretty

The other day I really really loved the way my makeup turned out so I asked my husband to snap a quick picture so I could share it with you guys.

 He of course managed to get a couple awesome ones.

 I’m wearing on my face Chanels Vitalumiere Aqua, Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Concealer, Nars Deep Throat and YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in #4 Succulent Pomegranate.

My eye makeup was my favorite part. I’m wearing Benefit’s Leggy Shadow all over my lids, with Too Faced Ever After in the outer corner, Urban Decay’s Bourbon 24/7 Glide On Eyeliner Pencil and I kinda smudged it a bit with a Lancôme eyeliner brush, Tarina Tarintinos’s Broken doll eyeliner on my waterline and in the inner corner, and finally YSL’s Shocking Mascara.

This has pretty much been my go to easy makeup look and I feel like it looks amazing. It’s simple, quick and I’m obsessed with this routine.
