DIY Ideas

These cacti pinatas are soo adorable! I need have a party so I can make these.

Even though this is a Valentine's Day diy, I think it is adorable and could be given to a significant other anytime.

I love this donut coaster diy! These would be cool for a party too! A Simpsons themed party!

How pretty is this floral vans diy? I love embellished shoes.

I'm a sucker for floral crowns. This floral crown diy is made of paper, I thought that was pretty unique.

Here are more photos from our trip to Chicago! It seems so long ago already and it was only last week!
After we took this photo a bunch of other people started taking jumping photos. Trendsetters we are.
Derek took the coolest jellyfish photos while we were at Shedd Aquarium.
trip1 You know you love it.
When I lived in California as a child, I used to catch starfish when we went to the beach. It was really cool to be able to touch starfish again.
Seriously Derek takes the best aquarium photos ever.

Once again, you know you love it.
These are our best "tough" poses because spears.
I am explaining to Gwenyth (my sister) my hatred for the artist Gauguin. He is a jerk, guys.
And here's a blurry bus photo of the gals.

I am already planning a trip back. I really want to go

Stuff I Luff #77

Although I do complain from time to time, I do enjoy a lot about Michigan. I love this upper and lower peninsula ring!

This dress reminds me of the one I wore to Christmas parties this past year. I am a sucker for velvet, especially if it is collared.

Danny Brito is one of my favorite illustrators. I am pretty sure I need this anime cats pouch.

I am dying over these funny art tees.

Other things I am loving
+Oh Dear Drea is a blog I have been enjoying a lot lately. It's full of pretty every day life photos and neat diys! I especially loved this post.
+Iced peach green tea lemonade from Starbucks. You would think I would get sick of the drinks since I work there...nope. There are so many options and with peach syrup being a seasonal flavor, I have been drinking the poop out of it.
+The Blog Beautician is a fantastic youtube account created by Dana of Wonder Forest that is filled with tips and tutorials for designing your blog!
+Poshmark. It is such an addictive shop my closet site. I can't keep off of it. I just traded a few things so I am really excited about that.

The Windy City

On Monday my sister, boyfriend, friend, and myself headed out for Chicago. We went from being super intimidated by the bus system, to being pros in a matter of three days.
The Art Institute of Chicago was fabulous. I saw so many paintings I thought I'd never see in real life. It really is different to view art in person than on a computer screen.
I thought this was the coolest thing. You can sort of "rent: bicycles. You just pay for the amount of time you want to use it, then return it.
This guy was totally weird. He was a rollerblading super hero lizard direction man. You give him money, then he answers any directional questions you may have. Creative...
I was really excited to be off of the bus and walking around.
The Bean! I never thought a huge glass lima bean would be so cool.
Rothko for life.
I really can't wait to go on another trip to Chicago! There is so much to see that I feel like it takes multiple trips to see it all. I will share more photos in another post soon!

Stuff I Luff #76

After seeing Lyzi in this dress (different pattern), I decided to check out the whole website. I absolutely adore this dress' pattern and shape.

This shop has the BEST jewelry. I love the little heart detail on the right ring.

Oh man do I love candles. I love the sleek, clean design of these.

These soaps look so colorful and are made with good ingredients to keep your skin soft! The description make them sound like they would smell so yummy.

Top 12 Fav Products

I am the type of person to find a product I really love then never use anything else. It took me some time to find the perfect products for me, and I am still searching in some categories. Here are 12 products I adore and use every day.
No 7 Beautifully Matte Foundation- This is seriously the best foundation ever. I have used everything from expensive bb creams to drugstore foundations and this is by far the best I have found. I have combo skin that gets pretty oily throughout the day. I wear this with a little powder and I really only have to add a little more powder towards the end of the day.
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm- I am all about this balm! I have it in two different colors in which sometimes I mix together. It is super moisturizing for your lips, but it also last quite a while.
Maybelline Super Stay 14Hr Lipstick- This stuff lasts sooo long! I love the colors it comes in too. I will put this on followed by the matte balm and it is perfect, lasts all day! The main reason I like to wear the balm over this is because I feel like this lipstick is sort of drying.
Cocoa Butter Vaseline Lip Jelly- This stuff is amazing. I used to use Burt's Bees, but then I realized that my lips were not getting any better. They were dry and cracked no matter how much I put on. This stuff smells so good and feels great on your lips.
Redken Wool Shake- I use this every once in a while when I feel like my hair needs a little oomf. It is sort of drying, so I don't like to use it every day. It adds a nice texture to your hair and helps it stay volumized.

Beauty Blender Sponge- I bought mine from TJMAXX, but you can get a beauty blender pretty much anywhere. They even sell it at drugstores like Walgreens. This thing makes my face look so flawless. The best part is no more streaky foundation lines!
Secret Clinical Strength Clear Gel Deodorant- Not only does this deodorant work all day (no B.O.!), it smells so good!
Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel- I saw on Pinterest that this gel has the same ingredients as the oh so expensive Smashbox photo finish primer. I have used both and I can tell you that it is the exact same thing. I was looking online to buy the Smashbox primer after using a sample, but when I saw how expensive it was I stopped dead in my tracks. Seriously, for $8 a tube that lasts forever, why not? For real though, go buy some asap.favoriteproducts9 SheaMoisture Coconut and Hibiscus Body Lotion- I love how my skin feels and smells after I use this buttery lotion. I usually buy it when it is on sale though because I go through it pretty quick.
Real Techniques Powder Brush- I saw a couple Beauty Bloggers/Youtubers recommend the Real Techniques range and I had to try one. I seriously love this brush so much, I have been wanting to buy more. It just distributes the powder so evenly, it is better than any powder brush I have ever used.
DKNY Be Delicious Green and Red- I love both of these apple scented perfumes. I really want the Fresh Blossom one. I have the smaller size and they are still going strong after a few years,
Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette- I saved the best for last. This is the best investment I have ever made, even though it is not really too expensive compared to other palettes. I literally have used this every single day for about a year and a half. I am about due for a new one. The dark brown shade is perfect for filling in eyebrows, the other colors instantly make me look less tired and feel naturally pretty. If you are looking for a natural toned matte palette, this is it.

What are some of your favorite products?

Life in Instagram

I've decided to start sharing a photo from my Instagram each week. This week is the President  Jackson hates us all edition. I love finding interesting things written on money. So buy something for your crummy friends and go play in traffic.

busy Lately, I have been trying to get a move on with this whole "art thing." I have so many ideas and I really want to start doing things with them. I am thinking about doing stationary, especially stickers and postcards. Once I finalize some of my designs, I will share them.
