Butterfli Me Makeup Lesson

Hi guys!!!! Cathy, Cassydy and I went to a great girls night out at 
Butterfli Me Makeup Studio in Irvine. It was an exclusive blogger event where we learned from experts how to keep our makeup fresh for summer. We had the best time and learned some great makeup techniques. My girlfriend Delphine Berryhill, owner of Butterfli has an amazing makeup line called Delphine. My favorites included the lipstick in Shrimp, the lipgloss in petal and the eyebrow pencil in taupe.

I urge you all to check out Butterfli Me. Currently, they are offering Friday Night Eyes. This is where you can come by the studio on Fridays between 3-7 p.m. and have your eyes done for 10$. What a great deal. Sometimes the best accessory for a Friday date night or girls night out is pairing your outfit with the perfect makeup look. I love this idea and I hope you all take advantage of this special offer!!!!

So don't forget to check out this fun studio and fantastic Delphine products. I can't wait to hear what you think. Thanks to all the ladies at Butterfli Me and Cathy Cordas for photos. Don't forget to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Bloglovin. Happy reading!!!!

Save Vs. Splurge Tuesday--Heeled Sandals

Hi guys!!!! Happy Tuesday!!! I absolutely love these open toed heeled sandals.  They look amazing with shorter dresses or jeans and a great top especially in the summer time. I am lusting after the Stuart Weitzman version (2). They are absolutely amazing but at a price point of $415.00,  I wanted to find a similar version. When I saw these by Steve Madden (1) I fell in love. They look so much like the pricier pair, and at a price point of $79.95 they are so affordable. I had to purchase them and have already worn many times,  so be on the lookout for them in future posts. Let me know what you think of these adorable shoes!!! And don't forget to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Bloglovin. Happy reading!!!! And you can shop both looks below!!!

Thursday Beauty Finds

Hi guys!!!! On Thursdays I want to share with you my favorite beauty item of the week. This week it is the Urban Decay Naked Palette. This amazing eye shadow collection contains twelve shades. Eight of the shades are neutral and the other four provide darker color options. I am in love with this set. It has become one of my everyday staples!!! And I can easily wear it during the day, and add the darker colors when I go out in the evening. I also love that it includes this perfect two sided brush!!!! What a bonus. The thicker end is great for the upper lid and crease and the thinner end is perfect for the main part of your lid. I think this item is a must have!!! You will absolutely be in love!!!! Let me know
what you think.  Don't forget to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Bloglovin.  Happy reading!!!!

Hi guys!!! My good friend Amanda Nguyen, a blogger for one of my most favorite blogs 
Feast Fashion Faves and I had the best time at the Jeanni Champagne Boutique in Newport Coast. Jeannie Champagne is celebrating their one year anniversary at their location in the Newport Coast Shopping Center (2111 Newport Coast Drive, Newport Beach, CA 92657) by inviting you all to a Sip and Shop event Friday July 24th from 10:00am-7:00pm. Drinks and snacks will be provided throughout the day and everyone will receive a gift certificate which they can use toward a purchase in the store.  I hope you all can attend!!! I promise you will love their pieces.

Amanda and I collaborated on looks at Jeanni Champagne to show our readers how to style two looks two ways. This first more casual look featured an adorable flannel shirt, jeans and cute slip on tennis shoes. I added a cute t shirt under the flannel with boyfriend jeans.

Amanda tied the flannel in the front and paired it with some great black skinnies!!!!

The second look was dressier. I wore this amazing black high low shirt that I paired with fun coated jeans and black booties. Jeannie Champagne also carries such great jewelry that we incorporated into our looks!!!

Amanda wore the same high low top that she tucked into a fabulous pair of flowy shorts with black booties. She looked absolutely adorable!!!

There are so many fun, hip pieces at Jeanni Champagne Boutique. So stop by on Friday July 24 between 10 and 7 and you can sip and shop!!!!
