Wow! It has been one month since I published my first blog entry and the time has flown by. I want to thank each of you (yeah, you!) for following this blog and for being so supportive. I’m loving the blogging community and what you all have to offer. I’m getting so many great ideas and seeing so many awesome reviews and suggestions from you all. It’s really just wonderful. THANK YOU!!! 💖
There are a few things I want to share with you all in this post. First, there will be a giveaway!!! More details about that can be found below. Second, my Look of the Day features a great and affordable top from Cato and my favorite flats by Jessica Simpson. Third, I want to share something a little different with you. I’ve seen a lot of bloggers sharing some fun facts about themselves as a way for us to get to know one another a little better. So, below are some facts about me. Feel free to copy and share your own answers on your blog!
Who doesn’t love a giveaway?! As a small token of my appreciation, I’ll be hosting a giveaway once my blog reaches 50 followers. We’re already halfway there!!! As soon as the the blog welcomes the 50th follower, I’ll launch a rafflecopter. The giveaway will contain some awesome goodies from Julep, Revlon, and Sinful Colors. I’ll create a special post once we reach 50 followers, so be sure to keep your eyes open. Here’s to awesome blogging friends and giveaways!!!
This is a sneak peek of one of the products the winner will receive…
I found this cute top at Cato a couple of years ago and I’ve only worn it once before. It was only $14.99!!! I love the fit and neckline, and the silver accents add a nice touch.
You’ve seen the shoes before, I love these flats by Jessica Simpson! They’re comfortable and go with pretty much anything. I love that they can be dressed up or down, and those jewel accents are awesome!
My my toes are painted with Liquid Leather by China Glaze, topped with Cosmic Flakies by Revlon. Cosmic Flakies is stunning. I purchased this polish to use as a topper on my DIY Kate Spade inspired earrings (there’s a post about them, check it out!), and just now got around to using it for what it’s meant for. I’m looking forward to layering it over other colors.
My makeup is the usual today, very simple. I always wear Mineral Wear foundation by Physician’s Formula, it’s just the best for my skin type which is very sensitive and can be dry at times. It’s lightweight, affordable, and readily available at many retailers.
If you’ve read any of my previous posts, you know I’m a huge fan of Julep. I used Julep’s Glow blush in Petal Pink, Julep’s Sweep eyeshadow palette in Neutrals, and Julep’s Length Matters mascara. The eyeshadow palette is amazing! I use it every time I wear makeup. The colors, left to right, are Tiramisu, Glow, Dusk, Toffee, and Cocoa. I used Tiramisu all over, Dusk in my crease and extended it upward towards my brows, Cocoa on my outer lid, and Glow on my inner lid. My eyes are lined with Kajal Eye Glider by Julep in Black Carbon. This eyeliner is great for the water line. I have sensitive eyes and it doesn’t irritate them at all.
On another note, I just customized my March Julep Maven box today. I’m really excited about it and can hardly wait to show you what I get! 😊

Ouija and Gremlin (Grem Grem) are my four year young cat brothers, who act like they’re dogs and know commands like sit, stay, up, speak, and roll over. Ouija even says hello when you say it to him. 🙂 My pets are my heart.
