I’ve been on a beauty kick lately, changing up my hair, nails and makeup! Maybe it’s the holiday’s…maybe i’m just crazy. Either way, these are five of my favorite beauty pins right now!


Iridescent lips…I mean…someone tell me how!

Purple Winged Eyeliner. It looks so easy to master in this picture but I’m sure I’d complicate it somehow!

Watt’s Up! Face highlighter. I love how easy it is to highlight my facial features (cheekbones, upper lip, temples, etc) with a simple stroke!

Colored hair. Obvi! I’m going blue next!

60’s Hair Styles. I really want to try a 60’s look soon, i’m just not sure my hair can hold so much body?

What beauty trends are you all about?! Can someone tell me how to get the wings of my eyeliner even? Is there an easier way? Knowing myself, I’d totally tape my eye down just to be able to see better!!!!


Garnier Color Styler


I don’t have a step-by-step tutorial for this post, but I plan on trying the blue color next to give you a “behind the scenes” look so hang tight! Don’t fret because I’m here to tell you that this product is SO easy to use that a tutorial would almost be too easy… and that’s coming from a girl who doesn’t know a lot about hair :) Did I mention this cost me $8 bucks!? Awwww yeah!

Let me start by saying the pink color is JUST as vibrant as it looks in the picture, which I love. If I’m going to color my hair, I want it to be WOWZA. So that is a huge plus! Please keep in mind that I have black hair but ombre (blonde) tips so dying my tips pink was cake. I was also shocked at how well it showed up on my almost black hair! Hooray! There’s hope for you, brunettes!

The steps are fairly simple. Use the provided gloves, make sure your hair is DRY and NO TANGLES. Shake the product for a good 5-10 seconds to ensure the coloring is mixed well. Put a few drops on your gloves and rub DOWN your hairline.


It adds a bit of grainy-ness to your hair but that’s expected because it’s clay based and non damaging. I don’t own a hairbrush and I like messy, stringy hair so me and this product are a perfect match. The great news – it lasts up to 72 hours so after it fades, go back and color your hair again. Wahoo!



Have you ever colored your hair before??


Fairy Bread

I didn’t make this recipe. In fact, it’s actually been around for decades!

Since it’s the holiday season and eating extra calories is acceptable (and totally necessary) you should try this out! Fairy bread is sliced bread spread with butter (and more recently – nutella!) and topped with sprinkles! The idea came from Australia and is commonly served at birthday parties in AUS and New Zealand. How cute!

Grab your cookie cutters (festive ones are even better) and get ready for an extra dose of deliciousness!





Ranch Pumpkin Seeds


Do you save your old magazines? I do. Especially holiday ones! I was browsing through my mother-in-law’s old Halloween magazines the other day and came across a simple recipe for roasted pumpkin seeds. How simple? 3 ingredients simple!


Pour a cup of vegetable oil in a pan and toss the seeds around in the oil for about 5 minutes. From there, mix the ranch packet in the pan and pour the mixture onto parchment paper. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes!



I can’t believe the holiday season is already here! I’m soaking up every last minute.


30 before 30

Consider this a bucket list.

30 things Tyler and I want to do before we’re old and grey – also known as 30 years old!

(just kidding…)

(but not really.)

Do you have a short term bucket list of your own? We plan on x’ing these out as we go along!
