STILA EYES ARE THE WINDOW EYESHADOW PALETTE IN SPIRIT

STILA Eyes are the Window Eyeshadow Palette in SPIRIT
When you find good deals on beautiful makeup pieces, it's so hard to resist, even when you're on a strict budget. I found this gorgeous palette on sale at Macy's for $25.00. That's more than half off! With 12 shimmery shades and stunning rose gold packaging, who could say no to that? Not this girl here. I hope you enjoy the beauty of this palette just as I do.

URBAN DECAY SHEER REVOLUTION LIPSTICK | SHEER LADYFLOWER

URBAN DECAY SHEER LADYFLOWER.
For a sheer wash of that natural rosy tone, Sheer Ladyflower is a treat. I adore Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks, so I decided to add another one to my collection. Absolutely no regrets. Trying to hold myself back from buying the rest of the sheers.

SINFUL COLORS BLACK ON BLACK | ESSIE SUMMIT OF STYLE

It's been a long time since I've sat down to write a blog post, but for those of you who are still here, thank you. I've missed you! For my new friends, welcome! I've thought a lot about whether or not I'm going to continue blogging, because time and energy isn't really something I have much of lately. I think for now, I'll stick with it, but I'm going to be doing microblogging instead. I'll post a picture or two and share a few bits about it. Nothing too lengthy or extensive. Straight and to the point - like life lately.

I've been loving black nails with gold accents - my current favorite combination is Sinful Colors Black on Black and Essie Summit of Style. Absolute perfection.

JORD ELY MAPLE WOOD WATCH

JORD ELY MAPLE WOOD WATCH.
A while back, a PR agent from Jord Watches contacted me to see if I would like to review one of their watches. I'm not really a "watch person", but I thought why not try something different. Jord Watches are wooden watches, carefully handcrafted to appear sleek and modern with a still natural feel. I chose the Ely Maple* and gave them my wrist size, but when the watch arrived, it was about an inch too small for me. I had it resized at a local watch repair shop so that it fit just how I like it - a little loose but not falling off my wrist.
The Ely Maple is a gorgeous light tan wood that suits light yellow skin tones like mine. It adds a bit of warmth to my skin as well. Surprisingly, the watch is really light and easy to wear. It isn't at all scratchy like how chopsticks can sometimes be - that's what I was concerned about in the beginning.
Jord Watches come in a classic wooden box and retail at pretty decent prices, with the Ely Maple going for $129.00. Hopefully these wood watches last a long time, because they are quite beautiful.

THE POWER OF MAKEUP | A BEAUTY MOMENT

The Power of Makeup. I've been seeing these types of posts and videos pop up recently, and I really wanted to share my version of the amazing power of makeup. While makeup can make us feel really confident and more beautiful, it's always a nice reminder that it's just makeup. At the end of the day, we wash it off and start all over again, fresh and new.
We must not forget that it's our actions that leave a lasting impact on those around us, so rather than focusing on being pretty, why don't we try to focus on changing the world one kind act at a time. Kindness, honesty, and integrity seem hard to come by these days, so instead of looking for it and expecting it from others, let's be those people.

REST AND RELAXATION IDEAS | HOW I UNWIND

We all have days that push us to our limits, and while it would be nice to always be able to think of pretty unicorns and rainbows, sometimes we just need to take a step away from those stressors and breathe. I work in an emergency room during the night when normal people would be sleeping. I do love my job and the people I work with, but even then, I need to unwind after long, crazy nights. I'll share some ideas with you!

Healthy Dinner
I usually come home starving, because when I am stressed, I like to eat. Since I've been on a health kick lately, I've been choosing more healthy options. I've been enjoying a warm bowl of oatmeal and berries or eggs over-medium with avocado. It's good for me and fills me up nicely. 
Netflix and Tea
My current favorite teas are Dandelion Root and Green teas. I curl up in my nice cozy bed and drink my tea while watching my shows - NCIS, Haven, Bitten, and Witches of East End. What are some of your favorite shows to watch? My friends have suggested Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones over and over again.
Browsing Social Media
I like to catch up on my favorites on Instagram and Pinterest. Just scrolling through my feeds gives me inspiration to work on my own projects and also allows me to support other accounts. I follow a lot of beauty, food, musician, and design accounts, so come check me out!
Listening to Music
Blasting music while I lie in bed under the covers gives me so much comfort. I enjoy singing along and falling asleep while the music plays in the background. I love listening to Marianas Trench, Anthem Lights, Travis Atreo, among many wonderful other artists. 
Beauty Rest
Lastly, catching up on much needed sleep is essential for stress relief. I sleep during the day which is a challenge in itself, so getting more than four hours is essential. My catch up days usually consist of 9-13 hours of sleep, and those are really enjoyable!

How do you like to unwind after a stressful day or night?

PHILOSOPHY LOVESWEPT EAU DE TOILETTE

Philosophy Loveswept Eau De Toilette is a soft, romantic fragrance that combines florals with warm musky notes. Loveswept is perfect for the spring and summer seasons yet works well carrying into autumn. While I'm partial to light, fruity, and fresh scents, Loveswept, which is a little heavier than I'm used to, has captured my heart. A full sized bottle (4 oz) will set you back $66, so I went for the sampler bottle (.05 oz), and I'm quite satisfied. I get to try it out without the commitment, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to take the plunge and buy the full size when I finish the sampler. 

PHILOSOPHY LOVESWEPT
Notes: Bergamot, Blue Violet, Lotus Blossom, Pink Jasmine, Purple Passion Fruit, Skin Musk, Creamy Amber, and White Cedarwood.

Have you had a whiff of Loveswept? What scents are you loving this season?
