Fashion ~ Rompers and Gladiators

Normally I don't wear black in the summer but I just couldn't pass up this cute little Romper that I purchased from Target at the beginning of summer.  The gladiator sandals I purchased from Amazon and decided to bling them up myself because they were so plain. You can find the links to the exact same gladiators and links to similar rompers on Amazon below.

Swatches ~ Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette Review + Video

 I recently picked up this ABH Modern Renaissance palette on a whim, I was replenishing some much needed staples from Sephora online when I just decided to order this palette based on swatches that I had seen from another Y'tber. The colors appear more vibrant when swatched on my arm than they appeared applied to my eyes.  I used Mac Painterly Paintpot as my base and the colors still weren't vibrant as I would have liked them to be.  All in all, this palette is perfect for everyday use. It gives you a subtle look without too much drama and the colors can be touched up for a more dramatic nighttime look when necessary.

Fashion ~ Pink and White

My pink shawl must be over 100yrs old! I have them in a few colors tucked away in a dresser drawer outside in my garage.  I love wearing them to church to cover my arms since my church always has the air conditioner on and it tends to get cold.  Anywho.... you might see these again because I have them in turquoise, gold, red, black and navy!
