Urban Decay Adrenaline Review!

3 Sep

We stopped by Ulta to get a facial (which is half price  until 9/22) and guess what I found?  My new favorite item from Urban Decay!!!  It’s a lipstick in “chubby pencil” form 🙂  the color is called Adrenaline.  I never.  ever.  ever.  wear lipstick… now I do.

hot off the runway, onto your face!

The color is SUPERSATURATED and initially I was kinda reluctant to wear it since it is a bit glittery.  But, once on it is a wonderful color and even will last through meals.  I top mine with a bit of Midnight Cowboy gloss to give it a bit more sheen, but you really don’t need it.  I just really love Midnight Cowboy!

should be Midnight Cowgirl…

Here is the rasp-glittered deliciousness….

Yay, lipstick!

I don’t think that they raspberry-ness came out fully, this is a very bright color.  When Urban Decay says it is super saturated… um, it ain’t no joke.

le swatch.

Right now there is even a freebie at Ulta if you purchase enough Urban Decay products…I am kind of a fan of theirs 😉  so that shouldn’t be too hard.  I am trying some new things out for the wedding and with Stefan’s stamp of approval, I think that we will be seeing much more Adrenaline in our household!


Be great & look great today! ❤ j


PS – I also picked up some falsies (lashes!) while there…I will update you as soon as I work up the courage to put them on 😉



Incredibly Loud and Awesomely Pretty!

30 Aug

Have you heard of Mary Katrantzou?  Well, now you have.  Ha!  Seriously, this lady has made some wonderful dresses.  I love love love them!  The good news is that if you had an entire wardrobe of her creations, you would only really need one pair of nude heels to wear with everything 🙂

simple, gorgeous.






unicorns? yes, please!

soft & warm blue hugs!!!



I know that I shouldn’t, but I have decided to get this dress and wear it every single day for the rest of my life.

appropriate for all occasions!

Be prepared family & friends…no matter the occasion, I will soon only be wearing this dress 🙂

Until then, look great today my friends! ❤ j




Watch what happens…

10 Aug

…when you least expect something…that is when greatness happens!  That is how Stefan and I met and that is what was happening last night when he surprised me with something that I had really wanted for a long time 🙂  He took me out to his car, we opened the moonroof and had a little mini picnic there, then he pulled out a white box with a watch in it!!!

Eloise Watch by Coach, prettiest watch evvverrrrrr….

Stefan loves a quality timepiece and I rarely never wear one, but I need one.  When I had seen this in the store I knew I had to have it.  I am so lucky to have someone special that can tune into what I am feeling (I have kinda been bumming out for the past couple days) and tries to make me feel better.  Truth be told, just sitting in the car looking at the stars and hanging out was fun and different – and was enough to make me happy- but he went the extra mile and really shocked me with a super awesome gift ❤

Be great to yourself & the people around you, it will come back to you! ❤ j
