Welcome back everyone and cheers to the beginning of a new month. This is a very busy month for me so I don’t know how often I’ll be able to blog, but I can promise you that I am dedicated to providing new material and sharing my love for style/makeup with the free time that I have! Thanks for your consistent loyalty and if you’re new, a warm welcome as always!
This weekend, I will be throwing my first makeup launch party featuring a fall collection I created myself. By that I mean, I created the shades (using GIELLA custom blend cosmetics) and came up with the names for each product. It will feature lip glosses, lipsticks, and nail polishes. I’m very excited to share the collection and will be posting photos from the event along with the products I created! Very exciting!
I don’t have any new features this month, although I will be sharing more blogs regarding home decor (as this is another passion of mine) and possibly more about health/fitness (as I’m really into this too and this goes hand-in-hand with beauty in my opinion).
Speaking of home decor, I wanted to share this beautiful piece I picked up at HomeGoods yesterday for my bedroom:
New home decor for my bedroom
I have the perfect spot for this to go too and a space I’ve been waiting to fill for quite some time, was just waiting on the right piece! She kind of looks like me too! Arched brows, full lips, almond eyes, side swept bangs…the only difference is, I never throw my hair up like that. I guess for the right occasion I would!
Also, for all you Project Runway fans out there…a new season officially started last week and sadly, I have yet to watch it! I haven’t had the free time to watch, but when I do, I plan on blogging about it every week!
