ELF Haul

ELF Haul

Hello everyone. Thanks for coming back to the blog! I am super excited to share my first haul on the blog! I did some shopping for the holidays and picked up some of my favorite lux for less beauty items from eyeslipsface.com (ELF). They were having a 50% off of everything sale so I picked up two of everything (exempt the nail polishes). If you want to see what I got just keep scrolling! XOXO~


Left to Right:
1. The nail polishes came in a gift box of 14. The polishes are very pigmented. Make sure to apply a top coat to prevent chipping.
2. The High Definition Power is in white translucent. It feels in all lines leaving your skin flawless.
3. Ok, first let me just say STOP and go to the ELF website and purchase this Mineral Eyeshadow Primer. When I say it is the bomb.com I am not lying. For only $3 this is defeinatly my favorite ELF product. I have tried higher priced brands and I always go back to this eyeshadow primer.
4. The lipsticks are very moisturizing and stay on for about 3 hours. They do transfer so make sure you set with powder for longer wear.
Velvet Rope

Wink Pink

5. The lip exfoliator is great and smells like coffee. It has small beads in the tube with leaves the lips soft as butter.
6. The eyeliner was purchsed in coffee brown because I wanted something to wear during the day. Black is a harsh color to wear everyday. A brown eyeliner will soften up your makeup look.
7. The brushes purchased are my favorite for blending concealor, setting my under eye with powder and blending my eyeshadows. I have purchased these brushes over and over.
8.The lipstain was great and stayed on for hours. I applied a lip balm before applying so my lips would not look dry. 
9. The shimmering facial whips are AMAZING. I use them for high lighters on my cheeks, inner tear duct and cupids bow. A small amount goes a long way. Just apply on the tip of your brush or blend with your ring finger.

Fashion: Celebrity Lux for Less Look

Fashion: Celebrity Lux for Less Look

Hi my beautiful PL's. I wanted to create something relaxing that each chica could look lux but edgy. I chose to recreate one of my favorite Khloe Kardashian looks she posted on Instagram. Khloe always looks cute even when she is rocking something so simple like a beanie, biker jacket, and boots. This is a perfect outfit to wear on a day running errands or even meeting up with the girls. The Givenchy boots alone will cost you $2,075. The complete Lux for Less look will cost you less than $180! (Awesome, right?) These boots are a must have and a staple piece to add the perfect touch to any outfit. I hope you enjoy this Lux for Less recreation. XOXO~

DIY: Fireplace Mantel Christmas Decor

DIY: Fireplace Mantel Christmas Decor

Hello everyone! Below I have created an easy DIY for making garland decor for your fireplace mantel. The best part is that it will only cost you $6!! Compared to those in stores that can run up to $80. (When completely decorated) I think this is a steal! It may cost more depending on if you buy additional supplies. This a great project to do with the entire family. Add Christmas stockings for that extra touch! I hope you all enjoy! XOXO

Materials Needed:
Green Garland- $1
Colorful Garland- $1
Red Bows pack of  8- $1
Gold & Silver Ornaments pack of 7- $1
2 Rolls of Reindeer Ribbon- $1
Tape
Scissors
Ornament Hangers (already had)

Additional Material (Not required)
Decorated Stocking- $1 each

 
Some items shown were not used. Extra was purchased just in case there was not enough material.



1. Measure your fireplace with the green garland.
 Mine was less than 9 feet so I was able to double. If you are able to double secure ends with ornament hangers to mark end places. This will help to know where to stop decorating. 


2. Wrap colorful garland around the green garland. 


3. Attach bows in desired areas. Use as many as you would like. 


4. Tie ornaments on garland were desired.
Use the gold ornament string that came with the ornaments. 


5. Using the wired ribbon create 2 bows as shown below. These will be placed on both ends.


6. Secure bows in corners. The middle bow was made from left over ribbon. 


7. Using tape or decor hangers, hang your New Christmas Decor! Add Christmas stocking if wanted. :) Enjoy! 


*All items shown in DIY can be found and purchased at your local Dollar Tree*
