CoverGirl Review

I recently got the chance to review some pretty great products from CoverGirl thanks to Influenster. I’m pretty basic when it comes to makeup, but I love to try new products to share with you guys – especially those that help you stick to your budget, like CG.

Oh Sugar Lip Balm in Caramel – This color did not work for me. At all. I’m also not completely sold on the idea of tinted lip balms, either. I don’t think the colors ever last long enough. That said, I like how smooth it is and the level of coverage, so if tinted lip balms are your thing, this is definitely worth the $8.99 price tag.

TruNaked Eye Pallette – Love love loved this. I’m not a huge eyeshadow person, because it tends to rub off for me after a few hours. (Okay, that’s probably user error.) However, this stayed put through an entire night out filled with dancing. Plus, I like how it has all the complementary colors in one handy place; makes it easy for us lazy makeup girls. These shades not for you? They also offer several other options.

Plumpify Mascara – I’m a mascara snob. I think everyone is making insanely shapes brushes that don’t live up to the hype. However, I was very impressed with this mascara. It volumized just as well as my They’re Real, and it’s half the price.

Valentine’s Day Ideas

Valentines

I seriously cannot believe that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It feels like I just put my Christmas tree away. (Well, maybe I was a little behind!) Yikes. Well, whether you’re trying to drop some hints for your boyfriend or buying a gift for your friend’s anti-Valentine’s Day party, my pretty in pink gift guide has you covered. Is it just me, or does all this snow have you hoping for extra chocolate this year?

Delight of the Day 1/19

Southern Marsh Fieldtec

Today’s Delight of the Day is the Southern Marsh Monogrammed Fieldtec Pullover. Normally $74.99, it’s on sale today only for $69.99 as part of Marley Lilly’s Outerwear Sale. Available in five different colors that will have you pining for springtime, this is not your average pullover.

Southern Marsh Pullover

The FieldTec Pullover was engineered to help control and regulate your temperature throughout the day. The waffled grid pattern was designed to allow heat and moisture to flow out of the jacket while, at the same time, block the crisp fall air from entering – not too warm, not too cold. Pretty high-tech, right?

You know I can’t turn down anything that resembles mint, so I’m partial to the Bimini Green, but I also really love the Camelia and the White. Which color would you order?

Marley Lilly Outerwear Sale

Marley Lilly

Marley Lilly is having a huge outerwear sale. We’re talking 20-50% off. I’ve had quite a few items on my wishlist since Christmastime, and now that they’re on sale, I’m finally making my move. Plus,they’re offering free shipping if you spend $50, which is pretty easy to do when monograms are involved. Scroll through below to see my favorites.

New Year’s Resolution: Work Out More

workout

I always struggle with New Year’s Resolutions. I like a clean slate as much as the next girl, but I don’t see why January 1 has to be the new beginning. Plus, I typically keep indulging in Christmas cookies until mid-January (then start again once Girl Scout Cookies arrive in March), so it’s slightly hypocritical for me to pledge to work out more and eat better at the beginning of the year. However, being the planner that I am, I’ve been ordering cute workout gear in preparation. It also serves as motivation. What are your workout essentials?

Mexican Adventure

If you follow me on Instagram and SnapChat, you saw my endless supply of photos from Mexico. The beaches were beautiful, and the weather was perfect, so I maybe went a little camera happy. Oops! Here are some of the highlights:
