valentinesday gway hero

Ok, lets try this once again! I apologize for the technical difficulties on my end. I still have zero clue why this originally posted blank and not with my widgets, etc. I am joining 37 other bloggers to give away some awesome prizes AND one grand prize winner to celebrate Valentine’s Day. All of the details will be below. Let’s talk about my prize first!

ZJ201307My prize is this ridiculously cute Silver Dorado on White wrap bracelet from Victoria Emerson. I can’t tell you how much I have been loving this piece. I’ll be posting a more thorough review of my Victoria Emerson wrap bracelet in the next few days. I just wanted to give you a chance to win what is probably my favorite piece of jewelry in my collection.

Good Luck!

XOXO

My Christmas Eve 2015 Outfit Plus Giveaway

(Sponsored)

Christmas Eve 2015 outfit main

So the countdown is officially on. Fifteen days and counting until Christmas. This year I have so much going on around me that I have had to adjust my Holiday timelines. I usually wait until the last minute to pick up a little something to wear for my Christmas Eve dinner but this year I really won’t have the time thanks to some last minute (and much appreciated!) work opportunities.

I had a very specific idea for my Christmas Eve 2015 outfit. I usually go with my fave LBD but this year I wanted to switch it up some. One of my favorite fashion trends for Fall/Winter/Holiday is plaid. I’m mad about plaid this year! I’ve never owned a plaid skirt and I was really attracted to the longer midi length skater skirts that can be worn rather high (to hide my tummy!). I actually found one online that I loved.

Now I was on the hunt for the perfect top to go with it. I knew it had to be rather fitted because the skirt is rather flowy. I found a really cute fitted mock turtleneck in black that helps to slim down my arms and makes the girls look rather perky.

Since I am opting to wear the skirt higher on my torso I don’t have to worry about wearing Spanx (Yes!) and since I am hosting Christmas Eve dinner I don’t need to worry about adding a clutch or coat to my look. I’m going to finish my outfit with my trusty all black riding boots and black knee socks that will peak out from the tops of my boots.

If you’re looking to add some pieces to your wardrobe I have a $100 USD GiftCard to Zulily that I am giving away. All of the info is in the widget below. Good Luck!

Perfect Spring Skin $350 Giveaway

1497994_873112836060899_1953767345767448900_o

 

Spring has sprung!!! And who could not use a $350 giveaway to jumpstart your Spring/Summer shopping. My picks? Load up on maxi dresses, flowy blouses, sandals and of course makeup/skincare! My favorite Spring 2015 makeup trend is fresh, dewy skin. I’m not talking about the “Girl, you need to blot” dewy skin. I’m talking makeup that mimics “fresh, dewy skin” that can fool even a seasoned makeup artist. Here’s how:

1.) Start with clean, hydrated skin.

2.) Choose a foundation or a foundation substitute. The key is that it provides a light, semi matte (satin) finish. My picks are It Cosmetics CC Cream and Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue. For light coverage use your fingers or a Beauty Blender sponge. For fuller coverage buff your foundation into your skin lightly with a flat kabuki brush, Pro Tip: To pump up the dewiness you can also add a tiny drop of a liquid brightener/illuminator.

3.) Conceal lightly if needed and then set if you have to.

4.) When setting don’t use a powder that provides more coverage or mattifies because that can take you to cake town and/or take you to completely matte. Instead opt for one that corrects imperfections like MAC’s Prep+Prime CC Colour Correcting Loose Powder in Adjust.

5.) To amp up the dewiness I opt for highlighters that contain little to n shimmer/glitter to highlight the high points (forehead, bridge of the nose, top of the cheeks and cupid’s bow) of my face. Pro Tip: You can use a matte eyeshadow in a shade that is one to two shades lighter instead of running out and buying a separate highlighter.

There you have it! Perfectly dewy Spring skin! Pair your fresh skin look with some fabulous pastels and your set for Easter! Hurry up and enter our $350 Giveaway. All of the details are in the Rafflecopter Widget below.
