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!

Pink Elephants

 top: J. Crew (sale! .. also mentioned in a post here) // Shorts: J. Crew //
Bag: Coach Willis (old, classic is in widget below // Scarf: Stella and Dot //
Shoes: C. Wonder (old, shop the newer styles here)

For months I tried to track down this sold out scarf, and after meeting my new S&D seller on Instagram (check her out here) she finally hunted one down for me! But now you're in luck because they just re-released a new version for holiday. It's SO soft and has pink elephants, need I go on?  I've already worn it three times, but considering there's probably only been two fall-ish weather days in Savannah I'd say those are pretty good odds.

Happy Monday,

Pumps and Push-Ups

 October is definitely my favorite month- Halloween (always brings notable tutu action), fall weather, and everything pumpkin...pumpkin bread is currently in the oven AND I just got a pumpkin macaroon. Tomorrow, I'm going on a haunted pub crawl...Like I said, October gets me. 

 A shot from my vanity in Atlanta (see my beauty travel case here). 

I went to the Belk Girls Night Out event last week to meet up with local bloggers. Be sure to check out The Style HunterGlitter and Juls, and Megan's Instagram here. I got to meet Chip and Pepper, and I'm seriously recommending their denim. We all picked up their gray skinnies, and even sized down in them!

This look was featured in my last fashion post (see it here). The vest and leopard flats will be my go to this fall.

My MUFE HD foundation ran out (just after saying it was a never ending bottle- it lasted almost a year) so I decided to try out this foundation from Estee Lauder that I have heard so many people rave about. Along with my purchase, I got all these goodies to try out! 

That one time Savannah got the most perfect fall Sunday (a few weeks ago before another heatwave hit). I spent it with my cousin and friend downtown for Octoberfest. This sweater is old from AE, jeans are J. Crew, and fringe booties are from Jessica Simpson.

A shot from a corner in my room where lots of studying goes down. I picked up the gold pillow on sale at Target recently. 

Last night we attended the Garth Brooks concert in Jacksonville. I was worried Tim wouldn't make it through the concert (he is the complete opposite of southern- minus his charm ;) But he said it was a good show! I've been waiting for Garth to tour basically my whole life. 

Happy Weekend!
