NYX Makeup Favorites! 

I recently purchased the NYX Color Correcting Concealer. This stuff is amazing!


Taking notes from art class in elementary school, this concealer uses the color wheel for how to conceal. I use the green on any red spots (acne, pigmentation), and the yellow for blue under-eye circles or veins. Apply your foundation over the concealer. The results? Marvelous! 


I also love their Intense Butter Gloss. This color (IBLG11) is the exact one used on my wedding day. It’s a sweet little reminder!

Bridesmaid Dress to Date Night Impress!

Happy Friday, everyone!

Spring & summer tends to boast a lot of weddings. If you’ve had the honor of partaking in these events as part of the wedding party, you know the struggles of bridesmaid dresses. While I think the idea of ugly bridesmaid dresses is rather exaggerated, there is still the myth that you can’t wear your bridesmaid dress after the bride & groom says “I do.” Here are a few tips to turn your bridesmaid dress into a beautiful date night outfit!

  • Makeup

Makeup can be taken up a notch when going out for a night on the town. Using darker colors for your lips & eye shadows makes your bridesmaid dress feel more date-like. Use purples, reds, blacks, & blues for a beautiful face!

  • Jewelry

This is another instance where bolder is better. Add a statement necklace, earrings, or rings to make your dress stand out. Statement necklaces are my personal favorite, & give a chic look to a would-be bridesmaid dress.

  • Shoes

The sky’s the limit with your shoes! The higher the heel, the more date-like the outfit. Strappy heels also give a date night vibe & flirty look!

  • Clutch

Have fun with your clutch! A unique clutch makes your outfit stand out in the best way!

  • Alterations

Don’t be afraid to have alterations made on your dress. Whether you shorten, add fabric, change the color, the possibilities are endless!

Many stores & shops are taking the bridesmaid dress from wedding to date night. Weddington Way is no exception! They have beautiful bridesmaid dresses in numerous colors & styles that could easily be transformed into date night attire. Here are a few of my favorites:

 Don’t be afraid to give your bridesmaid dress a second chance! You may just love it even more!

Vegas, Baby!

I want to go to Vegas at least once in my life. It’s one of those trips everyone wants to take. The lights, slots, & drinks are trademarks of Vegas. Knowing this, I think my outfits for Vegas would be bold, even a little over-the-top for my style. So I created a few different outfits that I would wear for various Las Vegas activities. I hope you like them!
Be sure to check out Vegas.com to find resorts, attractions, clubs & much more!

1. Resort/Casino
This look is perfect for walking around the casino & restaurants in your resort. The Mirage looks like a glamorous place to stay! I think this outfit would be fabulous to wear while staying there!
Vegas, Baby!

 

2. Sight Seeing
Nevada is known for the heat. When you venture out of your resort, you want to be both comfortable & cool. This look is easy to pull together, just don’t forget your sunnies!

3. Night Life
I went for a more sophisticated look for evening activities. I found a bar called Laguna Champagne Bar that looks a little more up-scale than most bars. There is a variety of champagne & champagne cocktails to choose from. And if you are a novice to champagne, like myself, the bartenders & servers are there to offer their expertise. You’ll be a champagne ace in no time!
Luck Be A Lady!

Spring Brunch!

Spring Brunch!
~~~
The concept of brunch has always been appealing to me. Add that it’s spring time, & I’m in! I’d love to get dressed up and have breakfast for lunch. A mimosa in one hand, a croissant in the other (though I’d probably get pancakes if I’m being honest).

What about you? Do you like to have brunch on occasion?

Summer In The Fall!

Summer In The Fall!
~~~
I’m not going to lie. As much as I love the Fall, I know which season is coming to make me wish it was Summer again (Winter…). So I decided to make an outfit that reminds me of Summer, but can totally be worn in the Fall. If you are going for this look, make slight references to Summer. This sweater has a pineapple, but it does not have the colors that make you think Summer. The purse is a metallic gold, giving a paradise vibe. The shoes have a tennis shoe feel, and the pattern near the top make it almost feel tropical. Summer makes me think of pink lips, so pink lipstick can finish off the look!
