This Lime Crime Venus Grunge Palette is gorgeous! I thought I would share my thoughts on it today.
This palette consists of 8 eyeshadows and costs $42.00 on Lime Crime’s website.
This palette is a neutrals girls best friend, because you can do a neutral look or amp it up. This is the perfect palette I think for the fall and winter.
VENUS: The color of bruised fruit (velvet matte)
SHELL: Opalescent shell-pink (glow)
AURA: Golden ivory (glow)
CREATION: Rust brown (matte)
ICON: Dirt brown (matte)
REBIRTH: The color of an over-ripe nectarine (matte)
DIVINE: Dusty stone (matte)
MUSE: Deep burgundy red (matte)
I found all of these eyeshadows incredibly soft, with no fall out when applied. The only one I’m not over the moon out is Shell, it is a bit chunky when you swatch it and you have to pat it on rather than sweep it to apply it to it’s fullest potential. This is a beautiful palette and I suggest getting your hands on it if you can.
The Sephora friends and family sale is happening at the beginning of November. So I wanted to show you my wish list. I already had one purchase from the sale earlier this month because an employee sent me a 20% off code. So here is what is on my wish list for the sale.
Today I am excited to bring you a post featuring ModCloth. ModCloth is a clothing and home decor website online and they asked me to put together a few Autumn inspired outfits featuring layering. So here are my outfits.
For outfit one I decided to go kind of rocker-ish/grunge and pair this 80s Bruce Springsteen shirt that is a bit tore up (I love when things come pre-worn in) and pair it with this flannel which I really loved that it has a hood. Over that a leather jacket, a good leather jacket is a must in everyones closet. Flannel and leather (this jacket is vegan, faux leather) seems to be a match made in heaven for me. I love how the textures work while still giving an edgy vibe. To continue the same vibe of the outfit I paired it with a pair of black skinny jeans and Doc Martens. This is definitely an edgy outfit and plays with the grunge style that has been popular this season. This outfit could be worn to school, shopping, and a late lunch with a friend.
Burgundy is one of my favorite colors, especially in the fall. This outfit could be worn to school, dinner or a casual event. The undershirt is a beautiful wine color with a heart pattern and inside the heart pattern there are two deer, layered on top of that would be this adorable fawn sweatshirt. It is up to you whether you leave the collared button up tucked in or out, I would continue with the rich, wine color in the jacket. This will help tie the entire look together. Lastly, to keep up with a relaxed but put together vibe a pair of dark, denim skinny jeans and this tasseled, loafers will complete the outfit beautifully.
Then I wanted to put together a date night outfit as well, red is a color of love and confidence so I chose this dress to be the base. A simple, black cardigan over will keep you warm and cozy. Personally I would put the cardigan on and button it all the way up and then belt the dress and cardigan together. This beautiful black, jacket will help you keep your shape even on the coldest nights. A patterned pair of tights will add elegance with still adding a hint of fun to the look and paired with an adorable pair of booties, I especially love the leather detail on these.
This was so much fun to do! To check out more awesome clothes go check out ModCloth, and remembering layering is huge for fall and they have a ton of cute cardigans!
Today I am bringing you another collaboration this one is with Sarah from Sarah Squid on Youtube or @SarahSquidz on Instagram. Our top favorite fall products. Fall is personally my favorite season for make up and fashion so I was excited to compile a few of my favorite products for this autumn. If you want to see any in-depth review of any of the products please let me know and please be sure to check out Sarah’s video.
If you have checked out this blogs homepage, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram over the weekend you would have seen that I have officially rebranded the logo/header of this blog. So, I wanted to show you who I worked with, what my process was and how I felt about it.
I have been wanting to redesign or honestly create a brand for this blog for a while, and attempted to do it myself and realized I’m just not good at graphic design and admitted I needed help. I worked with a semi-local advertising agency Yellow Tuxedo Creative (their Facebook), I could not be happier with the professionalism of this company. I contacted them on a Friday and we began working on it that day, all work was done through e-mail. I personally worked with Daniel, the creative director of Yellow Tuxedo Creative, he first asked me if I had any ideas or concepts of how I wanted my brand to look. I had a decent idea so I sent him three photos that featured numerous logos.
These are not my photos:
I also knew I wanted a clean looking logo, and preferably either lipstick or a hanger in the logo somewhere. About a day later I received an email with concepts my potential design which was posted on here for all of you to help me choose.
Most votes went to logo 2, which I loved but I also loved number 6 and found 6 to look more minimal which I like. I debated for about two days, I talked about a few concerns with Daniel and he adjusted them and sent me back the perfect identity for my blog. A header and an avatar, so both are able to be used and when people see these they should only identify my blog.
I was so happy with the process and result, I also chose to work with him for my freelance photography business. The process was the same and I ended up with a perfect identity for that as well.
I did pay for this service, and it was well worth it. I would highly suggest working with this company.
