    Fall Favorites | 2018

    It’s time for another favorites post – specifically my fall favorites for this year! Fall is in full swing and I’ve been enjoying as much of it as I can. October started out quite cold and dreary in Minnesota, but once it cleared the colors and shorter days were wonderful. We even got the perfect fall day to take our engagement pictures, with full colors and leaves falling all around us. I’ll share a few pictures of our session at the end of this post if you’re interested! With fall, comes pumpkin and spice everything. Warm colors. Muted and dark lipsticks. Sweaters and scarves. All of these and more, which I’ve…

    Spring Beauty Favorites | April 2016

    Spring has sprung (finally) in Minnesota. We’re getting some beautiful sunny, 70 degree days a few times a week now and I’m loving it. Now that’s it’s warming up, I’m looking forward to doing some training outside. Spring also comes with an overhaul of beauty products I use. Instead of monthly beauty favorites, I’m thinking updates on what I’m loving, when I’m loving will be better and more genuine. I don’t find myself buying new makeup as often anymore so I’m not discovering new favorites like I used to – my wallet is OK with that. A lot of these products I already shared in My Travel Makeup Bag post…

    Travel Makeup & What I’m Doing In LA

    I’m leaving for Los Angeles tomorrow and I’m super excited! I’m going to visit a friend who has lived out there for a few years now. I already shared what I’m packing for outfits and what’s on my wish list of things to do while there – read about all that here. Today, it’s all about what’s in my travel makeup bag. When I travel, I pretty much stick to bringing favorites so I know I’ll be happy with the looks during my vacation. makeup bag I purchased a roll-up/hanging toiletry bag before our trip to Iceland so I could hang it the hotel and conserve space. It’s come in handy for multiple…

    Friday Favorites | 3.4.16

    Happy March! Glad you’re here for another Friday Favorites! BEAUTY  Cover Girl Ready, Set Gorgeous Foundation | I’ve included this foundation in a foundation and base post in the past, but I’ve rediscovered it as a favorite over the past few weeks. It has just enough coverage for me, keeps me pretty matte, and is a great color match – 210 Medium Beige. I had been on the search for a lighter coverage base for the work week, and I do really enjoy the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer that I mentioned a few weeks back, but on the days I have plans in the evening after work I still prefer to wear…

    Friday Favorites | 2.19.16

    Welcome weekend – I’m happy you’re here! This weekend, we’re having our postponed Valentine’s Day due to the little illness I had last weekend and then I’m having brunch with some old coworkers on Sunday. Still trying to decide what to make, but I do hope there’s mimosas! BEAUTY |  After searching for a new tinted moisturizer and not finding what I was looking for, I decided to look through my collection hoping to find something good to use. The Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer was my go-to a few summers ago, and it’s been great now. The product lasts all day with a good powder and setting spray, has decent coverage, and is…
