Let's Talk Lips

Spring is in the air.. 
{Well not really, I think it's just a little confused.}
But that doesn't mean we can't accentuate our 
clothes, make up and accessories around it.

Most of you know I am a Mary Kay consultant 
so the first thing I think of when changing my look 
for the season is make-up!

Especially L.I.P.S! 
While being a Mary Kay consultant 
a lot of the products I use are from the Mary Kay line,
but I don't discriminate when it comes to my lips. 
Normally I start out with a cheap $3 product from ELF cosmetics. 


This is a must have ladies. I don't apply my lippy without it.
I apply the plumper first. 
It's like popping some Big Red in your mouth.
Cinnamon deliciousness.
Then for the primer. 
Which in essence is like concealer for your lips.

Next my favorite Spring shade.
Here are a few of my must have colors.

1. Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter- Cotton Candy
It is the perfect light shade of pink. 
Perfect with almost any outfit. 

2. Mary Kay Creme Lipstick- Whisper
It is a great nude. Any array of skin tones can wear it. 
Definitely a favorite. 

3. MAC Cosmetics Lipstick- Candy Yum Yum
I recently picked this color up and I absolutely love it!
And who doesn't like candy?

4. Mary Kay Creme Lipstick- Sunny Citrus
This has been a favorite of mine for years.
Works well for both pale skin or a nice tan.

5. Ulta Lipstick- No. 207 Just Peachy
I bought this color on a whim and 
because I'm obsessed with the color peach right now.

Rules to remember:
When apply lipstick especially bright and bold colors precise lines are key.
Always check your teeth to make sure you don't have excess lipstick hiding there.
Get funky and live a little.

Hope you enjoy and color your lips happy!

*If you have any additional questions or wish to purchase from Mary Kay just let me know.

So today is the first official day of my Spring Break.
And while I wish I could be like every other crazy college student 
and spend the week in Panama having a seriously legit drunken fabulous time, 
or go home and see my parents.
I'm stuck here in North Carolina doing some adult like shiz..

Some goals for this week include but are not limited to:
Spring clean to have yard sale.
Blog almost everyday.
(I know I've been MIA recently.)
Work on my fitness.
Cook dinner every night.
Read at least one book. (1/9)
(Went to the bookstore and currently have 9 books to read.)
Oh and RELAX!

Cheers to a much needed break!

I found these on Pinterest a few weeks ago 
& literally can't get enough. 
So simple, healthy and flavor packed. 

And yes those are fresh orange segments, not ones from a can. Hah. 
Banana Pancakes
1 ripe banana
2 eggs
1/2 t. vanilla extract
dash of cinnamon
cooking spray

Mash banana, add eggs and scramble until combined well.
Add vanilla & cinnamon.
Cook in non-stick skillet with cooking spray.
Serve with your favorite syrup or simply by themselves.

*Excellent source of protein & potassium. As well as gluten free.

Make sure you try them!

You've Been Glammed

Hey there cuties!!

How are you? I hate to break your heart but today Morgan won’t
be blogging for you! Instead you get a fun, sassy girl by the name of Kiki!
& yes I just referred to myself in third person, no biggie! Morgie has been
super busy with Culinary school so has asked me to guest blog for you today! So
lets the introductions begin…

Glammed By Tarin

Hi! I am Kiki and I blog over at Glammed By Tarin! There you
can find posts about my style, beauty, home d├ęcor and my life as a young wife. It’s
pretty much filled with anything you can think of but mostly fashion!
I ran into Morgan’s fabulous blog a couple months ago,
 but we recently hit it off when
I was in the market for my first Louis Vuitton bag. 
Which is gorgeous by the way, you can check it out here! 
Who would of thought that Mr. Vuitton would create friendships right? 

Since then you can find us texting about everything! 
We both share a love for fashion. 
Just last week we were talking about what we need to add to our closet for springs. 
Which leads me to today’s point of discussion,spring must haves! 
Spring my friends is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start shopping.
 If you haven’t started or just don’t know what to buy, 
don’t worry that’s why I am here today.  
To tell you what you MUST have in your closet this spring! Are you ready?!

Spring trends
View Set Here
1.)  Chambray- Has been everywhere for the past two
seasons! For spring you will see it in a lighter shade! 
I can wait to pair my chambray shirt with patterned denim!

2.)  Pattern Denim- Whether its shorts or jeans you at
least want to pink up pair of patterned bottoms.

3.)  Leather- Look for pieces that have a little bit
of leather in them or just go for a full leather piece!

4.)  Stripes- Stripes are everywhere. 
I love this maxi because it also follows the black and white trend! 
I would pair it with a floral top!

5.)  Statement glasses- These are sure to be a huge hit!

6.)  Flats- Flats and low heals are everywhere. 
I especially love the bow flats!

7.)  A neutral wedge- Buy a wedge that goes with

spotting them everywhere.

9.)  Statement Jewelry- If you haven’t noticed

already statement jewelry is in! 
At least pick up one necklace that you can 
wear with almost anything!

From wearing pattern to mixing prints you are bound to see 
it all over the place this spring! 
Look for something fun and different then rock it!!

Fashion is truly my passion and I hope this helps you on

what you should pick up for spring! If have time drop by my blog and say hi!

Day Date at the Museum

Here lately it seems like the hubs and me have been leading two separate lives..
You see he has worked eleven days straight, 
staying away from home three of those nights.

What's been going on you ask?
He just recently got a new dom and 
she has been keeping him quite busy with his submissive training.. 
But no.

Seriously, the Army has been a little bit nuts lately.
He's had staff duty, field exercise training 
& had to jump out of a perfectly good airplane.
No biggie.

So Saturday, we had a day date.
It started at this cute little bakery called
The Cupcake Shoppe Bakery.

I had the Banana Maple Bacon Whoopie Pie.
Mr. Army Man had the Peanut Butter Cup or something..
So delicious.

Then we headed over to the 
 It was so much fun.
There was too much to see in just one visit.

We drove around Capitol Square and loved seeing this Confederate Tribute.
"To Our Confederate Dead.."

We then ate a late lunch at Big Daddy's Burger Bar.
We both built our own burgers. 
Can't believe I spent almost $22 on a burger, 
but oh my it was worth it!

Buffalo Burger with Pepper Jack Cheese, Jalapeno Bacon, Guac,
Lettuce, Tomato, & Garlic Aioli
We ended our date with a Target trip were I teased myself
& proceeded to buy nothing except for two birthday gifts for both my nieces.

Seriously the perfect day after barely seeing the hubs for two weeks!
Hope y'all had a great weekend!
