Glitter Easter Eggs

Yesterday I attempted some glittered Easter eggs, and let me tell you, they are not as simple as you would think.

The pink glitter is from the Target dollar bin and the bronze glitter is Recollections fine glitter from Michael’s.

These came out better than I expected them to, but only because I spent about an hour and a half completely covered in glue while Jack listened to me whimper.

My best advice on the glitter and glue front is to use less glue than you think is necessary. I used way too much, which smeared when I then tried to roll the egg in the glitter. Also, if you have the time, try doing one side of the egg at a time, to let them dry more fully. I think you can tell why a couple of those bronze eggs are not fully covered!

Happy Glittering!

Amuse Bouche by Bite Beauty

I recently received a trio of Amuse Bouche lipsticks from Bite Beauty courtesy of Influenster. I have gotten a lot of vox boxes since I started my first blog about four years ago, and besides the Victorias Secret Sport box, I think this was one of my favorites.

For starters, these colors are SPECTACULAR.

Just. Look. At. Them. From left to right they are Beetroot, Pepper, and Gazpacho.

The lipsticks themselves smell very citrusy, have a great texture, and are made with food grade ingredients. They are even gluten-free!

Even though it took a little practice to get such a rich color on my pale, pale skin, Beetroot is definitely my favorite (see above). I paired it with some high waisted black jeans from Garage and this sparkly J Crew tee for a tapas date night. This little black bag was a darling addition (even though my phone doesn’t fit in it!).

I love Pepper (above) as well because it is perfect for a casual day of shopping and is also totally office appropriate!

Definitely a 5 out of 5 on this one. Way to go Bite Beauty!

 

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

St Patrick’s Day Recap

Hi everyone!

I know I haven’t posted in quite some time, but I have been missing blogging and writing recently, so I thought I would post about my very green weekend.

At work on Thursday I wore my favorite bright green C Wonder pants and my Be Happy loafers, because I was definitely in a good mood.

After work I changed into a green gingham button down from J Crew, the skirt part of my favorite scalloped crop top and skirt set, and a chunky pearl necklace. I have seen this look from several bloggers and I am absolutely obsessed.

I paired this look with a bag from J Crew that I got several years ago. J Crew Factory always has such amazing bags that really aren’t too expensive.

And, since it’s finally spring, I couldn’t resist taking a sweet picture of my favorite Hunter Boots with some pink tulips!

For St Paddy’s Day, Jack and I went to his friend’s house and ate corned beef and played some party games!
