Wedding Guest Timeline

When you’re a bride there are soooo many guides out there that give you a tentative timeline for planning your wedding. And while that is great for the bride, it does leave us wedding party members or simply wedding guests to fend for ourselves. So for those of you who aren’t as gifted with your timing and planning abilities, I decided to jot down my timeline as a wedding guest/party member.

Morphe 25A – Copper Spice Eyeshadow Palette Swatches and Mini Review

Morphe seems like one of those brands that can do no wrong. So when I purchased their 25A – Copper Spice Eye Shadow Palette for both my sister and I, I had very high expectations. And while I have had this product since June, I haven’t actually played around with it all that much because I tend to wear very minimal makeup during the Summer. But I thought it was about time to give you some swatches (starting from the top row, going left to right), regardless of my incomplete review. And for each row, I’ll let you in on how I felt about them.

Nothing bad to say about these. They’re very pigmented despite looking like they aren’t showing up on my arm (that’s just my arm color).

The ugly duckling of the palette. The colors are very patchy and blend away very easily making them hard to build up.

The pride and joy of this palette. Super buttery and pigmented. That being said DO NOT try to apply these with a fluffy or dry brush.

The shimmers are shimmery and the mattes are better in this row than in the second. An all around good row.

Living for these Living Rooms

lr

The time has come for my roommate of the past three years to move out.. That’s right, she’s found the love of her life and will be moving in with him in just a few short weeks. So while I’m devastated that she’s leaving me, the light at the end of the tunnel is that her absence leaves room to redecorate. Here are some interior designs for small living space (key word “small”) that I’ll hopefully be able to take some inspiration from to spruce up our old space.

 

Clutch so Clutch

 

If you weren’t already completely aware that wedding season is in full swing, SUHPRISE, IT’S HERE! And it’s been here. And (unfortunately for me, single Sally over here) it will only be coming back stronger and stronger each year. Fortunately retail therapy is a thing and in order to justify it even more, purchasing things for said wedding that’s making you (me) feel single AF is not a complete waste of money. And buying something that you can use for multiple weddings, like a clutch, is even MORE financially savvy. See? You’re making yourself feel better AND saving money. Everyone’s a winner. So in order to better your sanity and your wallet, here are some cute clutches that are the perfect addition to multiple weddings.
