Details Over A Few Months

Pictures I've taken and never uploaded.
I'm falling behind with my blog but like everything good things are worth the hard work and wait!

Coastal Pearl

A little behind the scenes from a photo shoot I recently had the opportunity to help out with!
I was asked by my friend Matt to model for his new pearl jewelry line so naturally I brought my own camera along for the photo shoot!
I got to catch some of these girls in action. 
Everyone so sweet and I had fun getting to know all of them! 
I couldn't take a ton of photos since I was jumping in and out of the frame but I love the few I got just the same! ;)
If you're interested in taking a closer look at Matt's beautiful pieces check out his stuff HERE, if you want to like Coastal Pearl on FB click HERE!

Until nest time

Pink Pout

As a girl who loves makeup and blogging I decided to combine both in the theme of Valentine's Day!
It will be here before you know it and while I've never made a big fuss over this particular holiday any excuse to get fixed up is welcomed by me! :)
So here are my favorite lip options for V-Day whether you are spending it with your one true love or your gal pals, heck I would even wear a fun shade at home, sparkling cider in hand, watching
 Pride and Prejudice. 
(Oh, Mr. Darcy.)
This is in fact what I will probably be doing considering I'm in a LDR and did I mention Mr.Darcy?
Enough about me, here are my favorite options starting with the lightest and ending with the darkest.
I hope you enjoy my picks and comment if you already have a fav I didn't mention, I will probably want to try it!
Let me know if you have any questions or if you try and like one of the colors I've listed! 
I want to hear from you guys!
Also please excuse my unsteady hand, I applied the colors outside, in the woods, with a small compact mirror... I'm not always patient so one or two of the colors might be a little all over the place. (just like me) lol 

Nivea Vitamin Swirl, gives a hint of soft pink while keeping lips moisturized.
Revlon Stormy Pink is a soft matte shade and screams "Barbie" in a fun way!
Revlon colorburst in unapologetic, I layered this one over my Nivea lip balm which made it appear more like a cream than a matte which is what it is.
MAC All Fired Up is such a beautiful pinky/red and perfect for those who always choose a classic red lip. Have some fun with color while keeping it classy.   
MAC Russian Red is the epitome of the classic red lip and since it's in a matte you can look and feel like an old Hollywood film siren. 
NYX Xtreme Shine Lip Cream in Absolute Red makes me think of Jessica Rabbit or for those who don't know who that is, a femme fatal. #AClassyWayToSayManEater 
Revlon Fabulous Fig is (surprise) another matte and can be more of a grunge color if paired with the right outfit. Hello 90's.
NYX Soft Matte lip cream in Copenhagen, I seriously have worn this in so many photo shoots and it seems different every time I wear it! Needless to say it's favorite of mine!
Revlon Creme Black Cherry was one of those lipsticks I fell in love with without even trying it on.
 I rarely wear it since it is a tad dramatic but this Valentines day the drama should stay on your lips and not in your relationship(s) or lack thereof.
Don't forget "Every girl deserves a guy who will ruin her lipstick, NOT her mascara."
Happy early Valentine's Day!!!
Don't forget to enjoy it no matter what your relationship status is!!!
