Pink and Gold

 

This past Friday, Shane and I got invited to go out with a few of our friends.  Shane and I decided to open our Christmas gifts to each other early that night, since Brielle was with my parents for the night, and we both wanted to know what each of us got! 🙂

Well, I have been wanting Kendra Scott earrings for the longest, and Shane gifted me, with the perfect pair.  They are beautiful!  I knew I had to wear these beauties out, so that was my focal point for my outfit choice!

I LOVE pink and gold together, so I knew that was what I was going to go with.  Here is all what made the earrings, look that much better!  I wore a black and gold glitter top, and black tights. 🙂

  1. First and foremost, the right pair of earrings make such a difference in a look! Especially when you have short hair like me!  I have the pink and gold medium-sized Kendra Scott earrings.
  2. The right shade of lipstick is a must! I paired my outfit with NYX, Summer Breeze, matte lipstick! It stayed on the entire night as well! 🙂
  3. Blush is something that is extra, and most people don’t have to wear any, but it really does make such a difference in your overall look! And it makes your cheeks standout! I chose the elf blush, in a light pink shade.
  4. When it comes to your eyes, you want them to stand-out, but not too much.  I love my glitter palette eye-shadow by wet-n-wild, but a little goes a long way! I used the pink one for the night! I also love the Maybelline-Stiletto liquid liner, since it literally does not smudge or move, all night.  To top it off, I used the Stila huge mascara, and it makes my eyes POP!
  5. I usually don’t paint my nails, but this night I chose to go with a pink bottom coat, and a glitter (snooki brand) top coat.  I loved the turn-out and it blended really well together!
  6. To complete my look, I finished it off with my rose-gold Betsey Johnson watch which I absolutely LOVE!

 

Here is everything together!

What are some of your favorite looks when you go out? I would love to know!

 

Birchboxin’ It-November Box

Birchboxin’ It-November Box

Sadly, this is my last Birchbox from my birthday present! Thank you SO MUCH Adriane, this has definitely been an amazing 3 months trying out new and different products, and seeing what truly works best for me! I am SO sad that this journey will be ending (due to us having this new house and all the major expenses that goes with it!).

This is probably, hands down, the best box out of the three.  Of course, they would go out with a bang, but honestly, I love every product.

This months box contained a mask, a primer, a red matte lipstick, curling cream, and dry shampoo.  Here is my take on the products

  • I am in LOVE with this red matte lipstick, like beyond in love! It stays on for a few hours, even while eating/drinking without having to re-apply.  It is bold, and beautiful!
  • I tried the dry shampoo on Brielle, but I swear people with naturally curly hair, can’t use dry shampoo by itself!  It has never worked in my hair, and it didn’t really work in hers..  It just kind of poofed out all of her curls, kind of like afro style.   I still had to use some of the next product and definitely some water to keep the curls tight.
  • The curling cream was good, but for Brielle’s volumized hair, I think I should have probably used more than a dime size amount.
  • The eye primer I have used, but still have yet to figure this product out! It will take some time to see how I should really use it.
  • The face mask I still haven’t used as well, but I am definitely excited for!

Thank you again Adriane so much for gifting me with three months of greatness, and I can’t wait to use all these goodies up! Love you girl!
