My Weekend, Updates & More...

Hello Beauties!

Is it me or do we all get to points in life where time seems to get the best of us?  It constantly seems to happen to me.  The past week has been a whirlwind.  After working all week, I drove to DC for a three day weekend.  I had a wonderful weekend with my family and friends.  Also, I got to meet the wonderful blogger, Nic from Nic's Picks.  She and I had a great time together.  Be sure to check out her blog if you are a lover of thrifting, like myself!

Before I show you pictures from my weekend, I want to show you this...

Save or Splurge? - Aldo vs. Target

Hello Beauties!

Fall and Spring are my favorite seasons of the year.  With the approach of spring and the considerably warm weather in my area, it has my mind wandering to bright colors and sandals.  I am always an early shopper (browser) so I began some of my spring collection a few months ago.  With my search, I found a great pair of heeled sandals from Aldo.  Well, this week, I discovered a very similar pair at Target for literally a fraction of the price.

Thrifting: My Latest Find

Hello Beauties!

Lately I haven't been able to go thrifting, but this past week, I was able to score a great vintage piece in the most unlikely place.  My job hosted a silent auction in an effort to raise money for the annual Christmas party.  Since I had about an hour before a meeting, I decided to pick up breakfast and browse the items at the auction.  Honestly, I wasn't expecting to see anything, but then I saw this...

Hello Beauties!

I hope that you all are having a wonderful weekend.  As many of you may know from Facebook, I have been planning a giveaway for the past few weeks.  This giveaway is centered around feeling beautiful.  I am a firm believer that beauty begins on the inside and how you carry yourself depicts your true beauty.  I also believe that taking care of your outer appearance boosts self confidence and gives you an extra pep in your step.  :-)

As many of my followers may know, I love healthy hair and I love accessories.  Well, today's giveaway has both!  Check it out...

Product Review: Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation

Hello Beauties!

As many of you who follow me on Twitter may know, I have been on the hunt!  I have been on the hunt for the perfect (or semi-perfect) drugstore foundation.  Drugstore foundation shades always seemed to be a bit off to me in high school so for the past five years, I have toggled between MAC, Clinique and Make Up For Ever foundations.  (Note:  Make Up For Ever is my favorite...hands down!)  Well, to be quite honest, neither of the brands I mentioned are exactly "budget-friendly."  Since I wear foundation most days, I decided to hunt for something a bit less expensive.

It just so happened that as I began my hunt, I read The Glamorous Gleam's most recent blog highlighting the new Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation.  Since I know she has skin similar to mine, I figured it would be worth a shot.  (Note:  The $2 coupon I had helped too!)

Fashion Trend: Vintage Jewelry

Hello Beauties!

I have missed blogging throughout the past week.  It has been very hectic for me, but I'm glad to be back today and with a topic that I adore.  That topic would be... Vintage Jewelry!  I'm not sure if I would call vintage jewelry a trend (or at least not for me) but with the new age of thrifting, vintage finds are becoming more and more mainstream.  I know many people are just now getting into the joys of thrifting so I wanted to share this with you all.

I wanted to do a post on this fashion topic because after I posted these pictures below, I received a great deal of comments on my jewelry.
