5, 4, 3…

2 days into my “7 Days of Christmas” and I skip two whole days…forgive me! I’ve had so many things going on! Saturday was my 3 year anniversary with my boyfriend so we had to celebrate! Between the beach, dinner, and Christmas party I just didn’t have time to blog, but I did miss it!

So…this is Jack! I know he’s gorgeous, but he’s mine so don’t get any ideas! If there’s any advice I could give to anyone, date your best friend! It’s been working out quite well for us so far 🙂

We spent the day at the beach and it was the absolute perfect day for it! Views like this make me so thankful to live in Florida

I’ve never been one to buy actual bathing suit cover ups, so I try to keep it cute and simple. I paired an orange crop top with a scalloped hem with my favorite white high-waisted shorts. And of course, the loves of my life, my orange and red Ray-bans

After the beach, Jack and I had a fantastic dinner at a cute little bistro overlooking the river. The waitress surprised us with dessert and a card signed by the whole restaurant!

To finish the night off, I stopped by my best friend’s Christmas party. Crazy to believe Sara and I have been friends for 9 years already…. hold onto the good one’s guys, they’re too few and far between!

Sunday was a relaxing day with my dad, watching football and cooking dinner. Together we made this slow-cooking chicken with kale (and probably 15 other things). It was a delicious meal perfect for cold nights! If you have a dutch oven I really suggest just throwing things in it and setting it in the oven for a few hours. Basically a fool-proof dinner that won’t disappoint. IMG_8882 IMG_8883

If anyone has a Francesca’s near them, please go now!!! They have the cutest last minute gifts for the holidays (like this mug!) Rarely do I ever go inside without finding something absolutely adorable. They always have tons of sales and deals!

For all of my fellow Beyoncè lovers, hopefully you can understand how hard it was walking away from this

IMG_8885I finally did another holiday look, completely inspired by Christmas trees! While I love the classic glitter, winged liner, and red lipstick, it tends to get a little overdone. So, naturally, I just grabbed a bold color and did whatever came to mind. Using Morphe Brushes eyeshadows and MAC Fix+ I created this green liner look. It’s fun and festive while still being wearable. I don’t know about you, but I’ll take any excuse to wear a colored winged liner!

If you’re looking for pigmented eyeshadows for a good price, check out morphebrushes.com! They have a ton of great products and good prices. The sales they have are unbeatable. The brush I used for this eyeliner only cost me 89 cents! I highly recommend this for anyone who loves makeup but doesn’t want to spend a fortune.

As always, thank you for reading! Have a great evening and I’ll talk to you all soon!

xoxo
