BEST BLACK FRIDAY DEALS 2014

I will never forget Black Fridays growing up as a teenager.  One that stands out in particular is when me and my group of girlfriends all got permission to go Black Friday shopping in the middle of the night.  There was an “outdoor” (indoors, no ceilings), outlet mall that we heard had good sales, so we all headed over around 3AM after Thanksgiving dinner.  It was awful and amazing all at once!  I was tired, it was freezing, and though I was happy to be with friends it was a little less than we had bargained for.  Regardless, it remains one of those unforgettable nights out during my teens when I felt the perfect balance of adult freedom and child like excitement.  In the spirit of reminiscing, I decided to bring Black Friday to you, with the BEST BLACK FRIDAY DEALS of the year.

 

Boots and Booties: Keep it Classy

These classy and chic boots and booties are my hand picked faves from this season at Nordstrom! They are marked down at Nordstrom for Black Friday, and are perfect for date nights, girls’ nights out, or for cold winter days when you want a touch of glam.

Boots and Booties: Casual Chic

These are your everyday picks for a glam look that’s relaxed and comfortable.  Chunkier, shorter heels spell comfort for all day wear with a little added style for the woman on the go!

MAC Living Legend: Fall Makeup Tutorial

mac living legend

 

Hey guys! I have not gotten a classic fall makeup up yet! I guess it’s because it is just starting to feel like fall where I live.  The air is finally getting cooler and more crisp, the leaves are turning color and falling, and Thanksgiving is in the air! I wanted to get this look up using MAC Living Legend because it is one of the most gorgeous vampy lip colors I have seen in a while.  I used MAC Bespoken For Prolongwear lip pencil to make it more red, and brighten it up a little but this color is quite vampy on its own even on darker skin! Loveee MAC Living Legend lipstick, and I highly recommend that you check it out if you have not already!  Without further ado, the tutorial and everything I used is down below 🙂

MUFE Artist Shadow Makeup Tutorial

make up for ever artist shadow

MUFE Artist Shadow makeup tutorial that is perfect for late fall/early winter! I was fortunate enough to receive a package from MAKE UP FOR EVER through the Preen.me VIP program (see my page on the site HERE), and I absolutely loved every single thing that I got!  I decided I had to create a look with the artist shadows because they are so buttery and pigmented.  I love how big each pan is, you really do get a lot of product and the artist palettes only cost 1$ at Sephora! It doesn’t get any better.

See everything I received in my #PreenmeVIP package from MAKE UP FOR EVER HERE!
