Today was the first Sunday in a long time my Hubby and I got to just be lazy.  I normally like to go, go, go on the weekends but today we took it slow. I played around with new makeup.

 I decided to try lipsense two weeks ago so I finally got a chance to really take it for a test drive today. We went on errands. We did a quick lunch at Dunkin Donuts - Iced coffee with bacon, egg and cheese on a wrap (to cut down on carbs). My lipsense lasted through a quick lunch but needed a quick moisture kick with another layer. It stayed on during my small apartment gardening stint. I really like these. I buy from my friend Kandice. She is a distributor for lipsense. Her shop is called "The Unicorn of Beauty" you can shop through her here.

I also have been loving the half bun trend, it's so easy to just throw your bangs up out of your face but still leave your hair down in the back. I also love a way to spice up my hair. I have been OBSESSED with the Jen Atkin X Chloe + Isabel hair pieces.  I own the hair pins, ponytail clips,  and bun cuffs.  Today I wore the their original bun cuff in Hematite.  I am also wearing the Portico Stud Duo Earrings. 

The women I shop with is Laura Tiny Fox! She's a great women to work with. I've been to other people's jewelry parties and I hosted one with her at my apartment. I truely love Chloe + Isabel jewelry but have a huge soft spot for all their hair accessories. I know they're on the pricy side but the quality of these items are amazing! They have gotten almost daily use on a rotation and look brand new. I even had an issue with one of my barrettes and because Chloe + Isabel stand by their quality of products they sent me a replacement which I never had an issue with.

Do you have a favorite piece from the Chloe + Isabel hair collection? I love to see what everyone else loves. I like to try new styles!

On our errands I picked up a few planters and planted a few flowers for our apartment balcony. It was a fun and productive day for us.

I'm back! See what I have in store for you!

I'm back I hope! I'm not here to write an apologetic letter to anyone who may stumble across my sleeping beauty blog. I'm here to say life got busy, I got married, and I took a nice break from being hounded by numbers and page views and forced content writing for something I didn't love as much as I used to. 


I have been for months now thinking of how I wanted to return to blogging because I missed it, because I felt like I had something more to contribute to blogging again. I have been thinking about what I'd like to share and how I'd like to share it. So here's to me coming back! Watch out I have many things I want to share with you. Like planning a wedding, running as a plus size girl, dealing with adult acne and the pressures of being a girl in a men dominated work force. 

Cheers! See you guys soon!
