You all know I love a bold lip color. It is part of my signature beauty look. Over the summer I got the chance to try the new lip stains from the Sephora Collection and I am OBSESSED. I wear them all the time and you’ve already seen my favorite colors featured in quite a few blog posts. I’ve gotten a chance to try a few other Sephora Collection items including their waterproof eyeliner, rouge shine lipstick, and waterproof contour eye pencil. The waterproof eyeliner is also a go-to for me since it stays on all day.
I’ve got some good news…The Sephora Collection is now going to be included at Sephora stores in JCPenney! And what is even better? This beauty line starts at just $10! Totally worth the money. Happy shopping ladies!

It was one of those crazy spontaneous weekends where nothing really goes as planned, but you have a blast anyway. Friday and Saturday night were spent celebrating Tony’s birthday. Then on Sunday my roommate and I took a little excursion to a local pumpkin patch. We also had a little carving party last night. I think we are going to make this a yearly tradition. My Halloween costume is also in the mail and I am very excited to see how all the pieces come together. Amazon hurry up please. I am dying to try it on!!
Tony and I chased down the sunset to get these photos before it got too dark. What we ended up with are these beautiful pink-tinted photos that perfectly matched this blush pencil skirt and matching sweater look from Ann Taylor.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month – every Thursday in October, Ann Taylor will be donating 10% of entire in-store purchases from 5 PM to close and all day on online purchases to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation! Happy shopping!

During my commute I like to tune out and listen to audio books. I started listening to this audio book called “You Are a Badass” by Jen Sincero. My sister kept bugging me to download it and it’ s now a new favorite of mine. The book talks about how if we all stopped worrying about what other people thought and just followed our intuition, we would live happier and healthier lives. I completely agree. Why waste our precious time worrying about other’s opinions or wishing we were something else? But why is it so hard for us to do so? Especially women? A lot of us just grow up programmed that way.
Once upon a time I used to wish I was a smaller person so I would “fit in with the rest of my girlfriends” and not stand out awkwardly in my heels. Now – I wouldn’t change my height for the world. My 5’9″ frame is one of my favorite traits about myself. I can reach things off tall shelves, get the front seat with more leg room and intimidate any man shorter than me if he decides to be rude. Half kidding.
At a 154 pounds, size 29 jeans and size 10 feet I am not a small person. And you know what? I am totally okay with that. I feel sexy and living life just the way I am. Sure, at times I wish I could fit into a sample size and swap shoes with girlfriends. Instead, my curves fill out the clothes I wear and I get to keep my shoe collection all to myself because no one else is my size. (Except my sister and my mom – those lucky ladies.)
All I am saying is, we should learn to love ourselves a little more and stop wishing we were something else. It is just time wasted that could be spent on a million other things. Check out this book. It is totally worth your time. Listen to it on Audible while you’re in the car. It’s a fantastic pick-me-up at any point in our lives. Oh! And don’t forget to enter the Sicky Sunglasses Giveaway! There are only a few days left to win these sick sunnies!
