Best Day Ever | Prendy Ever After Part 1

We got married on February 18, 2017 at The Rusty Pelican in Tampa, FL and it was the best day ever! We fell in love with the beautiful ocean view and champagne colored chandeliers.  It rained most of the day, but stopped just in time for our ceremony. These gorgeous photos were shot by Cat Dossett. She did an amazing job and our love shined through the cloudy day. She can be found Here. There are so many amazing pictures and it was so hard to choose, so I am going to break it down into a couple of posts. This post will feature getting ready and the ceremony. The first look and reception will be coming soon! I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking. Click on each image to view it better! Enjoy!

6 Drugstore Holy Grails That I Love & You Need!

I wanted to share my favorite makeup products that I use daily and cannot live without! I was looking through my makeup and realized the only higher end products I use daily are eyeshadow palettes, foundation, bronzer and eyebrows! I’ve rounded up 6 products and the best part is that they can all be found at your local drugstore! + they are all under $10!

1. Milani Baked Powder Blush

If you love the Laura Gellar blush like i do, buy this! If you’re looking for a less expensive dupe, this is it! I’ve talked about this product in my Fall favorites and I love it! There are several different shades that can easily be transitioned from season to season.

2. Revlon Colorstay Gel Liner

I love this liner because it’s easy to smudge on the lash line for a put together look. It stays on all day and I love it in the shade dark brown.

3. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer

I’ve tried tons of concealers, but always come back to this one! Apply it with a beauty sponge and it covers dark circles instantly.

4. Elf Eye Shadow Primer

This is definitely a favorite of mine! If you’ve been following me for a while. You know that It has been my holy grail for like 8 years! My eyeshadow looks so vibrant and lasts longer with this stuff. Holy grail for sure! Plus it’s only $2!

5. L’Oréal double extend mascara + primer

I have always loved L’Oréal mascara, but this one has been my holy grail for 4+ years! With other mascara i would always get mascara below my eyebrows from my top lashes and below my eyes from my bottom lashes! I never have any trace of mascara with this stuff! They make my lashes longer and thicker! It’s a must have in your beauty bag!

6. Maybelline FIT Me Powder

I did a blog post all about this Powder! I’ve tried so many out there and this is the best one that works for me! I love it in the translucent shade to set my foundation and concealer under my eyes!

I hope you find a new favorite or two! Thanks for stopping by! Xo

Casual Valentines Outfit Idea | Flirty Ruffles

Pink ruffled top | Similar pink top here & Here| Paige white denim

Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to wear all shades of pink. Not like we need an excuse anyway- Gimme all the pink! Pink is one of my favorite colors and this top is no exception. I wanted to share a casual, yet dressy outfit that could easily transition from a lunch date with your Galentines into a night time look with your Love.

I found this bright, fun pink top at Target! It is currently only available in plus sizes, but I linked similar tops under $20 Here & Here. I just love the tiered ruffles and can we talk about those sleeves!? Is is definitely a fun and flirty blouse. I paired it with This pair of white jeans from Nordstrom Rack for this look, but I would also pair it with a denim jean and cute sandals or heels- Whichever you feel most comfortable in. I love this neutral Steve Madden crossbody bag! I can’t wait to use it all Spring long! Add a pair of fun earrings and you’re ready to go!
