Pretty in pink lips

  1. Carmel says:

    Smashbox is my favorite! For a nice red-orange try Legendary. It’s perfect for the summer months and for fall you can add a neutral gloss over the top to tone it down.

  2. Love it! What color are your nails?

    I used to have the same fear but now I used CoverGirl NatureLuxe in Coral and I absolutely love it! Plus it has SPF in it so you don’t have to worry much about the sun 🙂 If you have a sec, I’d love to hear your thoughts on my latest posts!


  4. I really love Nars’ Heat Wave orange-red, but for drugstore brands, I’m really loving Revlon’s Lip Butter lipsticks. They’re like semi-sheer balms, but come in really really bright shades, like orange and red and hot pink. Perfect for summertime heat!

    I second the Nars Heat Wave recommendation – it’s incredible.

    You do rock those pink lips! I love Chanel red lipstick. I also love it in nude for summer.

    i love the clinique chubby sticks. i might have 4 (ridiculous i know). they are THAT good though!

    I love Laura Mercier’s “Poppy”. I have a warm complexion and it works for me, and it also looks lovely on my friend who has a cooler skin tone. I think it is one that looks great on almost everyone.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
