Ok, I have a secret to spill. I intentionally avoid going to Target. "SAY WHAT?!" you might exclaim. It's true. I will literally Amazon Prime dog food and toilet paper to my house to avoid dropping $200 on random items on the weekly. It's sooo hard because Target is sooo good. But sometimes you just have to treat yo'self. So, here is a mini haul that I purchased fairly recently. Still managed to spend over $200 on my shopping trip (what even did I buy?)
Confession: the Essie Grow Stronger Base Coat actually came from Ross (another fave), but it was purchased on the same shopping trip. This OPI polish in Bubble Bath is THE BEST NUDE MANI YOU WILL EVER HAVE. Seriously, it's the shade I selected allll summer at the salon and decided it was time to add it to my personal collection. I love it so much it was even my pedi color for my wedding.
I scored this silver statement necklace on clearance! It's Sugarfix by BaubleBar and unfortunately is sold out online, but maybe you'll find one at your local store. If not, I'll link similar options below. I love layering these necklaces over sweaters or graphic tees.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who tends to reach for the same items over and over again? I will usually cycle through my favorites, but the general theme always stays the same. I love dainty gold jewelry, comfy clothes, and a good nude lip. Here are some of my current favorites. Enjoy!

These earrings are the best I have found for sensitive ears. I have several variations and highly recommend them! I typically find mine in the outlet, so I highly recommend that if you have one near by! And that lip combo is what I wore for my wedding in September.
What are some of your favorite pieces you wear regularly?
Today's Sweater Weather outfit inspo is all from American Eagle Outfitters. I think it's a pretty classic fall/winter outfit with the rose accents to add a feminine touch. You probably have similar pieces already in your closet, but if not I left links to these items below!

I received this Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Skin Vitality Mask complimentary from Influenster to review and I couldn't be more excited! I love skincare, especially face masks, and Erno Laszlo is a luxury brand. Cue the Mrs. Doubtfire selfie:
This product was a little on the messy side, but it did make my skin feel very plump and hydrated and my makeup looked exceptionally good after using it. They included a spatula/mixing stick but I preferred to apply with a silicone masking tool.

It's finally cold enough here in St. Louis to break out the sweaters and hoodies & I thought I'd put a few outfit ideas together for you in case you love fall fashion as much as I do! I think this outfit would be great for Christmas shopping or grabbing lunch with a girlfriend. The booties are low enough to be on your feet for a lengthy time and I love throwing on stud earrings for an easy pulled together look without weighing your ears down.

Who else waits until the last minute to decide on their Halloween costume? This is the perfect solution because you don't need any special effects makeup or extraordinary skills. Since my veil was pretty useless for my actual wedding (legit fell off my head in the middle of our ceremony), I thought I would get one last wear out of it. I bring to you The Walking Wed: Zombie Bride. I used my every day makeup products to create this look, no need for that gross, pore clogging, costume makeup.
Here is what I used:
?Touch Liquid Foundation (scarlet): http://bit.ly/TouchLF
?Brow Obsession Palette (dark): http://bit.ly/BrowPAL
?Brow Artist Brush: http://bit.ly/BrowArtBrush
?Pressed Shadow Refill (gullible & fervent): http://bit.ly/2yp3JOD

My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon in Riviera Maya, Mexico and it was amazing! It was my first time visiting Mexico, and we stayed at Secrets Akumal which is a beautiful & luxurious all inclusive resort. We spent most of our days either at the beach or lounging next to one of the three infinity pools.
Despite owning a global beauty business, I prefer to be as bare-faced as possible at the beach. I saw lots of ladies rocking their bold lips, but for me I prefer the natural look of a tinted lip balm that nourishes the lips while giving a hint of color. It's also the perfect time to relax with shades on and catch up on your favorite podcasts. And don't forget to reapply that SPF! I thought I would share the items I kept at my side the whole trip!
1. Tarte Iridescent Makeup bag to keep everything protected. This is also where I kept my phone and cash for tips.
2. Neutrogena Age Shield SPF 70 face lotion // shopstyle.it/l/khnb

4. Younique Lip BonBon Tinted Lip Balm in Red Velvet Cake // bit.ly/2yk7UNp
5. Kate Spade New York Cissy Sunglasses // shopstyle.it/l/khpL
Being back home is a little bittersweet, but I'm excited to spend my favorite month ever as a Mrs. What do you always bring with you to the beach?
I've been drawn to graphic tees for as long as I can remember having my own money to shop with. They're comfortable, easy, and allow you to express yourself without having to say a word. My go-to travel outfit is an extra loose graphic tee, black leggings, and comfortable shoes that are easy to slip on and off (becauseee...airport security).
One of my favorite outfits to wear for a night out with friends is a graphic tee with ripped jeans, kitten heels, and statement jewelry. You'll be comfortable and trendy. Throw on a blazer to up your urban chic ante.
Have I mentioned how comfortable they are? Seriously, ya'll. I'm on the other side of 30. I can't be bothered to wear anything that makes me feel bound up or constricted. Here are a few of my faves from my collection & a few on my wishlist:
Go on now, I dare you to treat yo'self this weekend. Welcome to the comfy side of life.
