Dress: Boutique in San Marcos, TX… Similar here!

Heels: Shein

Sunglasses: Elle & Bee Co

Necklaces, Stella & Dot, Brina Box, love this!!

Hello!!

So, I wore the above dress to a wedding last weekend! I bought it back in March in Texas at a boutique! I really had no reason to wear it all summer so, I thought I better wear it now or I won’t get to until next year! It is so hard to dress this time of year… I want to dress fallish, but it is still 90 degrees out!!! Ugh!! I knew I could get away with pale yellow and pink last week because it was technically still summer! I have a wedding this weekend and on 10/8 and I have no clue what to wear😂  I need to go shopping BAD!! We have been nonstop for over a month now and I’m ready for a break! In other news, Bennett is walking a lot more!! He will walk from one room to another and then start crawling! He can’t make up his mind! He looks to little to walk! Libbey loves to tell him “Benny you are a big boy!” I’m doomed once he starts really walking🙈

New Beauty Products

Hellooooo!! So, I haven’t done a post about beauty products in a while, so I thought I would update you guys on some of my new products! My sister is makeup obsessed and she is trying to convert me! I’m a clothes girl, but she says it is so worth it to splurge on good beauty products. I’m slowly purchasing a few new items here and there!

20150716-133357.jpg

20150716-133349.jpg
NYX Highlight and Contour Pro Palette: I love love this and highly recommend it! I’m not a contour pro yet, but I’m working on it! I don’t even use my other bronzers now! The palette is fab and so worth the money!

20150716-133852.jpg
Make Up Forever Duo Matte Powder: I’m not completely sold on this. I have been using it for 6 weeks or so and feel like I can find something better! I hear their liquid foundation is fab, so maybe I’ll give that a try! My skin has gone cray cray since becoming pregnant.. I usually have pretty clear and smooth skin. My skin keeps producing little bumps(not pimples?) and is kind of dry and definitely not smooth. If you have any suggestions on products or cleansers let me know!
Maybelline a Dream Fresh BB Cream: So, this is my first ever BB cream… I know I know.. I need to get with it. I really do like it! I thought I would try a cheaper brand and see what the hype is about before I splurge. I use the color medium/deep. When I use this I don’t have to apply a moisturizer before applying my makeup. It has pretty good coverage, but I do feel like it makes me look a little oily throughout the day.

20150716-150616.jpg
NYX Matte Black Liner: I love this eyeliner! I like liquid liner the best, but when I’m in a hurry this is definitely my go to liner!

20150716-151158.jpg
Lancôme: I’m not sold on this just yet. I have read so many blog posts on how to get thicker lashes and a lot of girls recommend a lash primer/extender. I feel like it makes my lashes stick together after using it a few days in a row.

20150716-151908.jpg
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara: I like this mascara so for! I go between using this and Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara! I will probably buy this product again!

Hope you all have a great weekend! I’m heading to Chicago to go see Taylor Swift with my sister! I’ll probably be the only pregnant girl, but I’m okay with that!

Xoxo,
Amanda

Makeup Must Haves!

Gooooood morning!! I hope you all are bundled up and staying warm! It is sooo cold here and is supposed to be even colder tomorrow.. Yippee(joking! Ha!) I look like a fluffy marshmallow right now!

My sister is super in to makeup, so she has been buying me new products(what a sweetie:) ) and trying to upgrade my products and brushes. Yikes! She has a lot of work to do! I usually put on a little bronzer and mascara and I’m good to go! I have never been good at hair or makeup, but I LOVE clothes! Obvi! I must say, I have grown pretty fond of MAC lippies and Too Faced bronzer! So, below are a few of favorites!!!

20150106-072008.jpg
Urban Decay: This is a must if you are usually in a hurry or like things as simple as possible when it comes to makeup!

20150106-072324.jpg
Too Faced: I use this bronzer all year round! I feel like it lasts forever! So worth the money!

20150106-072755.jpg
Stila: I’ve been using this for the last 3 years. I’ve tried a few other blushes, but keep going back to this one!

20150106-073517.jpg
Too Faced: This is a must! Thank me later!

20150106-073721.jpg
Smashbox: Like the Stila blush, I’ve been using this for the last 3 years. I can’t find anything I like as well! This primer definitely helps your foundation stay on better! I have oily skin and I feel this makes me look less oily! It might just be in my head!

20150106-074319.jpg
Too Faced: My favorite mascara EVER!! I tried Younique this summer and love my Too Faced mascara more!

20150106-074645.jpg
Make Up For Ever: My sister gave me 3 of these for Christmas! They are fabulous! Usually by the end of the day I have eye shadow clumped in my creases, but not since I started using these! So far so good! My sister swears by them! She has 2 of the 3 Naked pallets and she like these shadows just as much, if not more than the Naked pallets!

I think I will save lipsticks for another post!

Thanks for reading!!
