11 years married today💕💕💕
Grabbed breakfast, got our nails done ;), massages, painted our first shiplap wall (the true test of marriage...), and now headed to dinner. It hasn’t always been easy but it’s 1000% worth it because it makes today that much more sweeter than the beginning. Love you babe🥂🖤✨🎨

The perks of being the baby...
1. Mom and dad rarely say no
2. You get treated like a baby even when you’re no longer a baby 
3. When you fight with your siblings & everyone gets in trouble- you always win🥇
4. You get away with going barefoot👣 amongst other things because by the last, as long as they’re alive🙌🏻

Beauty Products That Make A Difference

Hey guys!

I wanted to share with you all a few beauty products I swear by that I purchase from Nordstrom. They carry a ton of my go-to beauty products which is why I’m constantly referring back to them. I’m sure most of you have heard of these (or even use them), but I really feel like these are the products that make a huge difference in my overall makeup look.

First, is this bronzer in the color “Global Glow”. I love this particular shade/color because it acts as both a bronzer and a highlighter. I use it right after I put my blush on and go over my cheeks/blush as well as a little bit higher concentrating on my cheekbones. I then take my brush and use it on the sides of my eyes up to the side of my forehead, contouring my face a little bit. I forgot to wear it to church a few weeks ago and my husband asked if I was okay- haha. I guess it makes that big of a difference! Another popular color I’ve seen people wear is Soft & Gentle. This one will give you a softer look and won’t be as tinted.

I also SWEAR by this foundation (I use the color “ECRU”). It covers so well and lasts ALL day! It a little bit on the dryer side so I’d definitely recommend using your moisturizer and primer before applying. Speaking of primer, I love this one! It works for all skin types, oily or dry.

I was at a blogging event last weekend and got to hang out with some pretty “big time” bloggers who are definitely on top of their beauty game. A few of them recommended this foundation and I’ve yet to try it!

Lastly, I’ve recently learned how to contour and I feel like it makes a world of difference (which is why I started adding in the bronzer around my eyes). I use this palette as it’s a great kit for starters. You definitely want to start with powder if you’re learning how to contour. There are so many tutorials on YouTube which is where I initially learned. Try it- I bet you’ll become addicted too!

    Hi! Do you use a powder for the double wear foundation? Is this the foundation that you still wear?

      And what blush do you use? Actually, can you tell each step to your make up routine lol!?

      Hi girl! I do still use double wear! I’m currently searching for a powder but I’ve heard amazing things about the Laura Mercier translucent powder so that’s next on my to try list!

    Do you have a beauty section or am I overlooking it? I was interested in some of your lip colors. 🙂
