Biddles Escape


To start our morning off today, Taylor and I decided we needed a coffee fix, so we headed on down to our favorite local spot. The menu there is overwhelming because there are just so many awesome options to choose from. Not only are the drinks delightful but the atmosphere is incredible. When I walk in, I feel a sense of comfort and peace; super eclectic if you will. Taylor and I decided to skip out on coffee and go for a matcha (green tea) latte, which may I add was PHENOMENAL. I love matcha for it’s amazing health benefits. You should definitely look them up sometime.

As Taylor and I received our drinks , we decided to take them outside to the coffee shops deck. It was a beautiful overcast day. I know that may sound strange to some of you, but a lot of the time , these are the days that make me the happiest. I decided to dress casual and comfy. I wore a pair of worn out jeans, a Ramones tee with a black cropped jacket , a burgundy  scarf ( in which I made myself) and combat boots to throw it all together. I had a lot of girls asking me today what curling iron I used on my hair to achieve the look that I did. I used a 1 1/2 ceramic curling iron by Revlon.

The only products I use are TREsemme Thermal Creations as a heat protectant and garnier fructis marvelous oil. WHICH may I add is the ONLY oil that I have ever found to fully saturate and maintain / manage my frizz all day! I am very impressed with that product. My hair is fortunately naturally curly, so I don’t really have to worry about hairspray and IF I ever use anything I only use One N’ Only Argan Oil Volume hair spray- which is mainly a spray to help maintain frizz and protect your hair from the humidity. I am TOTALLY against hairspray otherwise. I don’t think people realize how damaging it is to their hair. All in all , it was another lovely day spent with my darling sister.


  

Fall Days Strolling Through The City


So I am really looking forward to this week because my sister decided to come and stay with me. During the day while Caleb is at work, it has been really lonely, so I am excited to have someone to do things with. We decided since it was such a beautiful day that we would take a stroll through the city. I love checking out all the local shops ! We first stopped at a local pizzeria to get some pepperoni wraps, and Taylor got buffalo chicken rolls. They were AWESOME! We then decided to drop by for some coffee. My addiction varies between iced green tea lattes made with matcha or an iced caramel macchiato.

What I love about this city is that everything is pretty much within walking distance, and I love how many bike trails there are. There are almost just as many people riding their bikes from place to place as there are people driving! Okay… maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but it’s still impressive. In Wv,, we really have it made when it comes to the convenience of getting in and out of the stores/ restaurants we love the most. In Pittsburgh, however, parking is nearly impossible and it probably is in your best interest to either walk, or ride a bike; but I can’t complain much because it encourages and promotes living a healthier lifestyle. So it is kind of a win win. All in all, it was a beautiful , eventful day.

Bye Bye Dry Skin!


vichy

Okay so, I know it has been SO long since I’ve posted anything BUT I just had to write a review on this product!

I have been struggling with dry skin all of my life,and in only a matter of TWO days my dry skin has been non-existent ! I used to always have to exfoliate and then moisturize before every foundation application and at night, or I would just be so flaky! Not only has this amazing product kept me looking hydrated and healthy but it has also given my makeup a flawless finish/ “dewy look” if you will. (which I LOVE). A lot of people say the dewy look makes it just look like oily skin, but I beg to differ. If anything it gives girls a beautiful glow while also allowing them to look hydrated and refreshed!

I signed up to start receiving an ipsy bag which I believe is only $10 a month. You fill out a profile and your interests and skin type, and they send you generous samples of different brand products. I have a very nice collection of high end products and HAIR products as well. It is truly a great investment, and I didn’t have to pay a fortune paying for full sized products just to find this great cream! The sample sizes, I believe are very generous. I have made each product sent last for a few months! Definitely give this brand a look! I believe the average sized cream runs between $23-25 depending on which site you purchase it.

I’m telling you ladies, this cream is a miracle! Before, I would use a moisturizer and by the end of my work shift, my skin had already flaked up! With this moisturizer , I truly don’t even think I would have to apply it everyday if I didn’t wash my face at night! It’s wonderful! Hope this helped you all!

Make up of the day

This holiday calls for new makeup! Loved playing around with my new pallets and can’t wait to share what I used to achieve this!

For the concealer I used the temptu palette -amazing for dark circles and blemishes
Foundation – Jane Iredale bb cream #3 I find this to be the absolutely best for coverage , and it always leaves my skin with a glow, not only those things but it is actually good for your skin! Jane Iredale is all mineral makeup , which I love because I don’t feel guilty falling asleep in it .

Cheeks – I used Victoria’s Secret bronzer to contour my cheek bones

For the eyes I used my new NAKED palette which I’m absolutely obsessed with. The colors apply beautifully and always add such a glimmer . I’ve never found anything to be as amazing as these palettes. They are long lasting also even without primer !

I used the NYC liquid liner for my cat eye and Mary Kay long lash mascara .

Hope you all enjoyed the look of the day! Email me for questions or if you are interested In getting your hair or makeup done for an event ! Taylor and I would be more than happy to assist you !

Today I celebrated my birthday a day early , treating myself to some Eminence goodness !

IMG_1697.JPG

Listed above is the Eminence Bright Skin Moisturizer , the facial recovery oil and Jane Iredale’s D2O hydrating spray .

All of these products are extremely dear to my heart because they are completely organic and all of Jane Iredale is mineral makeup , which is so amazing for your skin!

I will list a brief review on each of the products above .

– Eminence Bright Skin Moisturizer- completely organic , containing – whole fruits , vegetables and herbs . It is for people with dry / mature skin and contains a natural Hydroquinone Alternative to help brighten the skin, reduce appearance of dark spots and signs of aging . I’m telling you from experience that this product WORKS. Studies show that within two weeks – the skin shows up to 50% percent improvement ! It also makes my face feel extremely hydrated and fresh all day long !

The Eminence Facial Recovery Oil – is extremely beneficial for me because I have extremely dry skin . It is clinically proven to reduce fine lines , it is age – defying and you only need 2-3 drops to keep your skin looking flawless all day. Also great to use at night! This product balances oil production and is very calming

Jane Iredale D2O hydrating mist- is also awesome for those of you with dry skin, it is a MUST ! It hydrates , conditions and protects the skin but is also great for all skin types! The main reason I have it, however is to set the minerals from my Jane Iredale bb cream foundation, it conceals pores and fine lines and keeps my face looking bright and fresh all day!
