Halloween!





HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Of course I'm bringing you a special edition of Friday Favorites because ^. Halloween is the most fun holiday of the year, and that's coming from a girl who couldn't watch Scoobie Doo growing up. I'm not really about being scared, but I do love everything else about it (aka candy). Usually, I do everything in my power to incorporate a tutu into my costume, but this year I decided to go as an "obnoxious crossfit-er" - inspired by this video. I have my paleo lunch packed, baby powder, a fake barbell to throw around all night, and a custom tee to pull off my look. I'm fully expecting to be sore on Saturday from all my WODs planned for the night. 
What are you/did you dressing up as?

This DIY Mermaid costume by the one and only Lauren Conrad is everything 

Hungry? You should probably make these for breakfast

Of course Taylor Swifts new album needs to be mentioned! I miss her old half loving//half bitter country albums, but homegirl can put out an album. My favorite at the moment is Blank Space. Whats yours?

Feminine Camo?




Top: Old Navy / Skirt: J. Crew Factory / Belt: ASOS / Heels: Ivanka Trump / Bag: Rebecka Minkoff / Bracelets: Stella and Dot, Coach, Tiffany and Co.  { Shop these and similar options in widget below! }


Camo is one of those trends you probably either love or hate. I definitely had to talk myself into purchasing this top, because honestly I didn't think I could pull it off. Pairing it with a skirt, bow belt, and some fun pumps (of course I went with leopard) made it fit right it. Now I challenge you to style an outfit around a piece out of your comfort zone!

MAC Eyeshadow Favorites


This is for all you MAC junkies out there! Over the summer I finally picked up the newer version of MAC's pan eyeshadow palette. I decided having all of them in one was much easier than opening two separate palettes, and I think I use them more often now that I see them all together. There is a clear plastic (seen on the left) that separates the two sides to prevent them from touching. Above I marked my most used eyeshadows with hearts, because I love them that much, but really it's just cute. 

 Below I listed out every color in case you were curious, and starred my favorites. 

Top Row: Brule / Phloof* / Vanilla / Nylon* / Ricepaper
Middle Row: Jest* / Naked Lunch / Glamour Check* / All that Glitters / Patina 
Bottom Row: Bold and Brazen / Expensive Pink / Electra / Wedge* / Soft Brown

Since my idol Lauren Conrad doesn't really wear much eyeshadow, I don't really either. If I do, it's always the same basic neutrals to just give my eyes definition. The standout in my neutral palette is Nylon, which instantly brightens up your face when applied to the inner corner. I typically start with applying Naked Lunch or Jest to my lid, Wedge in the crease for natural definition, then combine Phloof and Vanilla for my brow bone. If it's the weekend, my favorite color to darken up my crease it Bronze.. it does wonders for blue eyes! 

 Top Row: Woodwinked / Bronze* / Mulch / Sable / Satin Toupe
Middle Row: Smoke and Diamonds / Knight Divine / Style Snob / Glamour Check / Sketch
Bottom Row: Corduroy / Expresso / / Mystery* / Smut / Carbon

Major side note: I started Bikram Yoga (hot yoga) this week and I'm happy to report I made it through my first class. I thought I would be distracted by the men in their yoga skivvies -- yes I'm talking tiger speedo yoga shorts, but I was more focused on not passing out and not hurting myself.  I'm pretty competitive, even when it comes to contorting and stretching my body. I'm excited to see how I progress after my 30 day trial. If you're in the Savannah area and want to try out a seriously discounted month trial (23$ / 160$ value) click here!
