Tuesday Shoesday

It's Tuesday which means I am sharing all things shoes! I have been struggling staying healthy this week so todays post will be short and sweet if that is okay with you, so I can get back to resting. This virus/bug sure is kicking my butt, any tips on how to shake it off? Vitamin C is not working as fast as I would like it...

Both of these pairs of boots are from the brand Corkys. I have seen the brand several times in retail stores and was so excited to be able to have a pair of my own to try. Let me just say these boots are hands down some of the most comfortable shoes I own. The inserts inside the shoe are super soft and made them comfortable to wear even without socks. The wedge boots were perfect in the snow and never left my feet feeling cold, something that can be hard to accomplish on a shoes without being a snow or rain boot.  I wore the booties to a conference recently at my church that lasted all day and I had no issues at all.

Now that the warm air is slowly starting to come through I can't wait to wear these booties with maxis and sun dresses. I even wore them without socks and they didn't make my feet sweat like crazy.

How to Choose a Makeup Brush Set

Brushes Galore! So if you are a makeup guru or a newbie we all have to start at the same place, finding a brush that works best for you! Makeup brushes play such a vital role in apply those beauty products we all spend so much money on. You don’t ever see a painter using their fingers to paint a wall, same reason why you should always use a brush or some type of applicator when apply your makeup.

There are many benefits to using brushes instead of your fingers when applying makeup. You'll get a more of an even coverage using a brush, and a better polished finish. It's also more sanitary to use a brush, especially if you have problematic skin that breaks out easily. I unfortunately fall in that category, so I have to make sure I wash my brushes weekly. Side Tip: There are many wonderful brush cleansers out there, however if you do not feel like shelling out the extra money you can always use baby shampoo. Cheaper and just as safe to cleanse with.

So how to pick a brush: Start with the basics. A foundation brush, blush brush, and eye shadow brush. A foundation brush should be your first purchase. A clean, even complexion will make the rest of your makeup look cleaner and appear brighter. I have been using this oval brush set from Sammy dress and I really like the way they apply. For the price point I think they do a really great job. It takes a few tries to get the hang of holding them, and at times I feel like I should be brushing my teeth with them however they are conviently sized and perfect for on the go. After your foundation choose a blush brush. Blush brushes can be used for multiple different purposes, so if I need to highlight or contour I can always use the same brush. I like to keep them all separate so the makeup does not all mix together.

When buying your set, youtube some makeup tutorials to show how to properly use them. Ever wonder why some sets come with 5 different angled eyeshadow brushes? They actually ALL have a purpose. Plus you can receive some great how-to’s on some easy everyday looks.

I also have listed some additional favorite sets below. I linked all different price points, but keeping them all under $50.

Irresistible Me Hair Pt. 2

What better proof of showing what you love than a before and after? The first three pictures listed below are my hair naturally. I have fine, thin hair that requires a lot of hairspray to appear voluminous. Like most women I love for my hair to have that look of sheer volume but that is just not realistic when the numbers on my head are limited. That is why I love irresistible me hair extensions so much! They give my hair the volume that I need without the commitment. I am a big fab if clip ins because of how easy they are. It only takes 2 minutes and you are done. Personally I believe they are less damaging then professional extensions because you are not putting any chemicals or clamps in your hair. I can even where my hair in a ponytail if I want with the clip in. So easy! Take a look below and see the difference in hair.

These pictures below have the extensions in. The color matched perfectly! The color I have in my hair is called "Silky Golden Blonde".

The extensions gave length and volume and you would never be apply to detect because of how perfectly the colors match! I was so happy when I saw them in the mail. If you would like to look at what your hair would look like with easy clips in check out Irresistible Me site. Tag me in your photos so I can see! #savvygirlsstyle

Lace up and Chokers

Happy Friday! Is anyone else as excited as me that it is the weekend? The weather here in New York is pretty crummy with rain and grey skies. Perfect day for watching movies and catching g up on household chores I have been putting off.

Today we are talking about lace up and chokers! To be totally honest when I first saw this shirt I did not like it at all! I did not think the fit would look good on me and collars are not usually my thing. After looking at it again a few times I figured I would give it a try because I really am loving the lace up trend right now.

When I paired this outfit together I actually fell in love with it! The shirt is so soft and comfortable. It does not have a stiff feel to it, unlike some other collared shirts. I love how the criss cross detail is large on the shirt making it more of a bold statement. I am all for bold statements. I tend to shy away from them most of the time, but I always love when I see other people and bloggers making bold moves. I think I should take some lessons from them sometime!

This top is from Shop BellaC . Right now they are having a sale sitewide, 50% off everything. How amazing is that?? They have some really cute clothes so take advantage of this sale while it lasts. Use code YAY50K at checkout.

That’s all for today! Anyone have any fun plans this weekend? I would love to hear!

RoseWholeSale Laceup Heels

Happy Thursday! One more day until the weekend! I came back home early Wednesday morning (2:30am kind of early) from a week away visiting my family. I loved being able to see my sister and her tribe but it is always so good to come back home. In the words of Dorothy, "there is no place like home!"

I recently partnered with Rose wholesale and they have some of the cutest shoes! These black lace ups were just the shoe I have been looking for. One would think with all the pairs of shoes that I own I would have multiple pairs of black shoes, but I dont! I had my eye on a few different pairs however I wanted a shoe that was a little different, not the usual pair you would find at Target. This style was comfortable, easy to lace up and I was able to wear them for hours without feeling that urge to talk them off and kick it up. The best part?? The shoes are $16. I mean seriously how great is that? Shop the look below and dont forget about the coupon codes! Like the dress? I will have a blog for that very shortly!!
