May Beauty Faves


1.  Benefit Cosmetics Hello Flawless Foundation - my color in this is "I'm all the Rage Beige" and it was the perfect match.  The coverage was substantial without being overkill AND contains an SPF 25;  I will be repurchasing this one.

2.  Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer - someone on Instagram shared this product as THE concealer for under the eyes.  Ladies, this product is no joke and does what it promises.  I love that it hydrates the eye area as that seems to be the one and only place that I get dry skin.  I would certainly repurchase.

3.  Laura Mercier Radiance Foundation Primer - I was super skeptical about this product as I have really oily skin and in most cases, anything "radiant" or "glowing" is only a problem for me.  I did, however, get a sample from a Sephora purchase and actually really liked it for my skin.  It gives me a natural looking highlight that shines through my foundation.  LOVE it.

4.  Smashbox Under Eye Hydrating Primer -   this is another product I tried as a sample.  I'm not sure if it was from Nordstrom or Sephora, but either way I gave it a go and ended up really liking it.  Again, my eyes are the only area I get dry skin and everything else is oily.  This product moisturizes, brightens AND has an anti-aging agent and what girl doesn't need that in her life?!?

5.  MAC 210 Precise Eye Liner - tons and tons of beauty bloggers rave about this brush.  I already had the Sigma E11 Eye Liner Brush and figured these two brushes were created equal.  I'm here to tell you that is a false assumption. The MAC 210 is the eye liner brush of all eye liner brushes... the HOLY GRAIL and I am only wishing I had purchased it sooner.  It is THE easiest brush to apply a wing tip liner.  I will be buying a second brush to keep in my travel bag.

That's it for this round of Beauty Faves - Thank you for stopping by!

Nice Day for a White Wedding


Yep, "it's a nice day for a white wedding..."  That is the first thing my boss said to me when I strolled into the office in this outfit.  Never a dull moment and plenty of laughs around here, Folks.

How was your Memorial Day weekend??!!?  Ours was amazing and we even got in a good game of family baseball.  I am playing softball for my company team this summer and needed some practice batting (and apparently catching pop flies) so it was a great time and I got a little workout out in at the same time.

Happy Tuesday, and thank you for stopping by.  :)

We made it!  We made it to Friday!  Hallelujah!

So, I am embarrassed to say I haven't worn this blazer in a few years... but since I've been on an peach kick lately I have a feeling it will be pulled out a bit more.  And in other news - Idaho wind still blows (cha cha cha).

Enjoy your long weekend and stay safe!



I'm still experimenting a bit with braids and according to Jas, this one is "complicated" due to a few twists in the mix.  Slowly but surely figuring out this braiding thing.  ;)

Today has felt more like a Friday than anything and I am just ready to get my holiday weekend started!  Just a few more hours...

Happy Thursday and thank you so much for stopping by!

Lacework + Green


We are going on about day seven of rain and it's making me a wee bit crazy.  March and April were full of sunny days quite out of character for southeast Idaho so I guess I shouldn't complain too much but bring on the sunshine already!

I hope your week is progressing nicely and as always, thank you for stopping by.
