It’s the month of love, and the month of red and pink. Oddly enough these colors do not show up much in my wardrobe, but I make up for that in beauty products. It’s no secret that I am a lipstick fanatic. Finding the perfect shade, perfect texture, and perfect shine is my specialty. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites for that perfect festive pout.
Rose Neutral- Nars Velvet Glide-Bound
This highly-saturated lip color glides on like a gloss, but covers like a lipstick. The finish is semi-matte, long-lasting, and non-drying for luscious, vibrant lips. Water lily flowers and white tea extract are infused into this hybrid lip glide for antioxidant protection and ultimate hydration. $26
Matte liquid lip- Chanel Rouge Allure Ink– Luxuriant
ROUGE ALLURE INK is a long-lasting liquid lipstick with a smooth texture that glides on like a gloss and sets with a luminous velvet-like finish. This color gives the ultimate matte look that stains your lips. $37
Waterproof, Smudge proof, kiss proof- LipSense– Blu Red
This long lasting lip color is like non other. Tiny little molecules actually bond to the lip to allow 4-18 hour wear. It’s plant based and worn with a permeable Shea butter gloss to hydrate lips and seal the color. Blu Red is a Christina Aguilera favorite. 1 tube of LipSense is equal to 4 tubes of regular lipstick. Use the gloss alone for a chapstick alternative. This is a mommy must have! No more lipstick all over your baby’s cheeks. $45
Deep velvet color- Jeffrey Star Liquid lips– Unicorn Blood
This liquid lipstick goes on opaque, dries completely matte and stays on for hours! This product is 100% vegan & cruelty-free! Check out the site for many more sassy colors. $18
The perfect pink- Mac Cosmetics– Cream Cup
A lipstick designed to shade, define, and showcase the lips. A creme-based texture that imparts bright, full color with a soft and supple shine. This one is a blogger fave. $17
Liquid suede- NYX cosmetics– Pink Lust
Doll up your lips in plush and vibrant color! NYX Cosmetics’ Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick glides on and sets into a striking matte finish. Velvety soft and waterproof, this long-lasting lippie creates a positively polished look with every swipe. Psst. they are buy one get one half off!! $6.99
Can you tell I have a love for gloss/lipstick hybrids? You really can’t go wrong with any of these products, now the hardest choice buy one or all?!? Take it from this self proclaimed lipstick junkie, you can never have too many lipsticks!!
I’ve been blasting the news to everyone, and realized I never told my blogger babes, that this Friday, Dec 2, my good friend and fellow fashionista Beth and I will be hosting a holiday event with Saks Fifth Avenue Indianapolis!! This is a night you don’t want to miss, and I wish I could virtually take you all with me, but if you are local this is what the night will entail…..
Gals, I mean it when I say Saks is going all out on this! I know we all have busy schedules this time of year, but come treat yourself to a girls night out that you won’t regret. Grab some girl friends and make a night of it, this Friday from 6:00-9:00 pm. Oh, and you might just catch me on the news chatting more about event details friday morning over on Indy Style channel. I’m serious when I say, you will be sad to miss out on such a fun night, so let’s kick off the holiday shopping season together!! I’d love to meet a bunch of you, and talk styling and makeup tips.
Day after Thanksgiving shopping has quickly become one of my favorite things. As a person who used to work retail I always hated the fact that people started coming earlier and earlier to shop. I hated supporting leaving your families on a holiday to get out and start prepping for the next one. Seriously what used to be a relaxing family focused holiday is almost obsolete.
That being said, I do love waking up the next morning at my normal time, pouring a large cup of coffee and shopping in my pjs!!! It’s the time of year when almost every single shop, even the one’s who never have sales, will do something special to encourage you to shop. And it’s not just on shop small Saturday, it’s all weekend long! Here are some of the things on my shopping list.

What are you shopping for this year?! What do I need to add to my list?! I’m on the hunt for some cute pixie hats for Aniston and a subscription box for both Kempton (age 4) and Cohen (age 9) Any suggestions?!
Girls this sweater could not be more perfect for cozy fall days. It’s roomy, it’s thermal, it has shoulder cut outs, and it’s PINK! Like my favorite shade of pink!!! It comes in two other colors, so head over to Pink Blush to shop this and more. Sign up to receive their emails and get 15% off your first order.
I love plaid, and I love pink, so you can only guess how excited I was to find this perfect button up at h&m the other day. It’s so soft, and a perfect fit. I find myself working lots of outfits around this staple piece. It can be worn so many different ways, and with so many different color pallets!! Check out a few ways I styled it below. And also this carmel colored cotton dress!!!! It’s a must girls.
When the cutest bunch of kids get together for a halloween bash it looks a little like this. We ate yummy treats, listened to spooky music, and drank red blood juice. A huge thank you to The Borrowed Boutique for outfitting the kids, and Sweets N Treats 317 for the out of this world yummy desserts.
Happy Halloween Everyone!!!
