*press samples*Hey Guys & Dolls!
About 3 months ago I was scrolling through Instagram and I saw this drool-worthy necklace that LetzMakeup posted. I ached for this rainbow statement necklace, but since Siobhán lives in Ireland, I didn’t think I’d be able to get one for myself. A few days later I was browsing choies.com and what do I discover but the very same necklace! To celebrate this transatlantic bauble love, I asked Shiv if she wanted to collaborate and do makeup looks inspired by the necklace, and then film the outfits we’d wear with the makeup. This is a great opportunity to show you guys how I pair a wild look with an outfit. With this much color, it’s great to do a monochrome/greyscale look with the clothing; The outfit is still fun and in keeping with my signature style, just toned down to let the jewelry and makeup shine.

Hey Guys & Dolls!
Today I’m sharing a pretty look using my new Laura Mercier Artist palette. I simply adore this palette- it’s quickly become an all-time favorite, and one that I’m sad to say is Limited Edition. The Look is simple to do, but looks stunning in a not-trying-too-hard kind of way. I filmed this Sunday afternoon and wore it to visit my in-laws and see their new house, just a lovely day!

Hi Guys & Dolls!
Here on Hallows Eve-Eve I bring you the fifth and final video in this years Costume series: A Roaring 1920′s Flapper! This video is over a year in the making; I’ve had this dress since September 2013 (thank goodness it’s still available HERE). I just LOVE 1920′s makeup and fashion, and I’m so pleased with how this turned out. I hope you enjoy this fusion of modern and vintage makeup, along with all my little Vintage Cosmetics factoids peppering the video. Keep reading to read how this is the little video that almost wasn’t! Read more
I think the message of this image may be misinterpreted, so I want to make myself and my message clear:
You should love the YOU you are are now- as you are. Wanting to improve yourself from eating habits to being a better listener should be part of loving yourself, and honoring your body. Loving yourself, self improvement, and maintenance encompasses all aspects of a person, not just their physical appearance.
Losing weight, for health or aesthetic reasons is great- as long as you already love yourself. If you’re beating yourself up, and saying “i’ll be happy when I’m skinny/healthy/when I “fill out”/have a cosmetic surgery/when I get that job/that house/that love partner” only illustrates the material and physical things what you don’t have, and makes you feel unworthy of happiness you deserve NOW.
Confidence is a muscle that needs to be stretched daily- so stop making it harder for yourself with self depreciation. You can want to change yourself and still love youself.
