Naked 3 Palette - Love.

Oh, the Sephora emails that I love... "Naked 3 now for sale online!"

Literally, stopped what I was doing, signed on to Sephora, and then hit 'add to cart' 
That's a normal thing to do, right? :)

Urban Decay does it again, as always, another fantastic product. 

Wanna know something funny that happened while I was taking the above photo?

I was in my backyard in my pajamas taking photos for the blog & out of all the days in the month - my neighbor decides to get on his roof .... & looks at me like "what in the world are you doing?" He was probably so confused on why his neighbor was outside, in over size pajamas, (in the cold) taking photos of makeup....I just smiled.

Blogger problems! 

 Look at this beauty. 

The Naked 1 & 2 Palette are probably the two most used products I use, especially for all my clients & brides! I always end up taking most of my other palettes & MAC shadows but the Naked palettes always take the win! 

The one thing I love about #1 & #2 and now with #3...
I love that you can start with a day look & at the end of the day..glam it up with a night look with just one palette. They are also so travel friendly, before when I would pack I would never know which eyeshadows to take for a night look - now, this is all I pack. So convenient. I actually pack the palettes in my purse to prevent it from breaking in my bag! 

Now, let's take a look at the gorgeous shades!

The Naked 3 Palette definitely has more of a pinkish tone.
The colors in the Naked 1 & 2 have more of a golden/brown.

You can click on the photos to get a larger view of the shades! Do it! 

& the 2nd half of the palette. 
Blackheart is so gorgeous! Dark purple w/glitter. Love.

This palette comes with an eyebrush & samples of all the primers. 

The Urban Decay eye primer is my #1 primer, I use it on every single client! Lancome as well has a great primer, but Urban Decay is aways the first one I pick when it comes to the eyes! 

Once reason I love purchasing online at Sephora - samples! You don't get samples in the stores, so sometimes I prefer purchasing online if I want to try a product out :) 

Urban Decay has never let me down, I have always and will always recommend the Naked palettes, especially for anyone who is just beginning with makeup. I love that you get so many great colors & you can do countless looks with them! 

I can't wait to start doing looks with this new palette! 

Anyone get the Naked 3 yet? If you haven't, put it on your Christmas!


Can you believe there's only 10 more days till Christmas? WHAT !

A look inside Loft..

 Hey loves!

Today was such a fabulous day! I had the chance to go on a little shopping spree all thanks to Loft. 

Working with them has been such a incredible experience! I picked out a new outfit, accessories, shorts, sweater, tights etc. It was every girls dream - go shopping! 

I'm so anxious and honored for their Grand Opening party this Thursday, all information is on my previous post! In today's quick blog post, I wanted to take you around the store to give you girls an idea of the clothing Loft has and different styles they offer!

Let's take a look on some of their styles!

Their style offers a unique combination of fashion, work, and flattering fit.

Loft has such a versatile style of clothing, I absolutely love that you can mix and match a casual top with a dressy skirt. 

One thing I loved: How picture perfect the store was, nothing makes a girl happy to shop than in such a clean atmosphere! And the mannequins outfits were on point ! Definitely gave me inspiration while on my shopping trip! 

It's that time of the year for cardigans, scarfs, and cute sweaters ! 

I love their style: so sleek & so professional!

I'm excited to share with you girls on a separate blog post, an outfit of the day using all Loft's clothing items! That's on my agenda for the week, so stay tuned! I loved everything I picked out, it was a little hard, because I WANTED EVERYTHING ;) 

I loved these cute t-shirts for those days you want to be comfy, yet stylish! 

 A huge thank you to Loft once again, for giving me this opportunity! 

& a little inspiration to all my big dreamers before I end this post..

What I keep learning more and more every day, if you constantly* work hard towards all your dreams - you will be awarded. 

We are all born with a talent, go out there and show the world what you are capable of doing. You only live once, if you let the fear of opinions of others get to your head, you will never conquer your dreams. You never know who is watching and you never know who you are inspiring!

Hello Beauties! 

Happy beginning of the week! A new start of the week - full of busy days, work, school, wedding planning :) etc. Remember - just do one task at a time, it works all the time.

It's one of my favorite days of the week  - new Gel Manicure time! Given by the famous, Carriage House Day Spa. There's just something about having that pretty manicure every girl loves. Makes you feel so polished and so feminine. 

I am love love loving this Gel Manicure this week - the color is so simple and goes so well with everything. Just because it's Fall - it doesn't mean you HAVE to wear the darkest shades in your collection. This week we went with a nude light pinkish color. I just love how soft it looks on my hands. We also decided on trimming down my nails a bit because they were getting long, and they feel so healthy now! If you wear contacts like myself, then you know it's definitely not fun trying to put on your contacts when your nails are getting too long. Ouch! 

What colors are you loving lately for your nails?

I've had lots of great compliments on the new blog makeover - a huge thank you to my followers on here & my IG :) You girls are amazing.

Until next post lovelies,

'Success comes to those who word hard on a daily basis'
