Velvet Midi Dress + StyleCon


Happy Monday babes! This past weekend I attended StyleCon for the first time as an influencer. This is truly the first time that I was invited to a large conference as an influencer. I was really excited to see all my other blogger friends, get pampered and talk with brands. We listened to a bunch of speakers talk about everything from fashion, to friendship, beauty and more. It was a lot of fun and I felt really spoiled after the event because the goodie bag we received was insane.

I decided to wear this velvet midi dress to the event. I don't have a whole lot of velvet in my closet right now, with the exception of this dress. And this dress seemed to be perfect for the occasion. I also think this would make a great fall wedding dress guest dress. I styled it with my favorite comfortable pair of block heels and my leopard clutch.

Adore Me Beauty Products


Happy Friday babes! I am so excited it's the weekend again! Tomorrow I am headed to StyleCon with some of my favorite blogger babes, so make sure you tune in to my insta-stories.

Now onto this post...I was so excited when Adore Me reached out to ask me to try out their new beauty range. They have everything from shower gel, perfume, to lipstick. I chose several different products to test out and I am going to be sharing a little review each of them.

Keep on scrolling to see my review of these products.




SHOWER GEL, SHOWER SCRUB & BODY LOTION

I chose the scent Peony in all the bath products. Peony's are my favorite flower so I thought it was only fitting to get my favorite flower in scent form. I have to say, as soon as I opened the box I smelt these products. I am not a huge fan of products with a scent that is too overpowering, so this turned me off at first. But, once I tried it in the shower I loved it! The scent lasted on my skin all day and even the next day. The scrub wasn't too harsh on my skin and left it soft and ready for shower gel.

The body lotion wasn't too thick and left my skin feeling hydrated all day. The only issue I had with it was that it was a little hard to rub into the skin. It was like it didn't want to soak in at first. I thought maybe I had used too much, but that didn't seem to be the case.



LIPSTICK SET

I was most excited to give these lipsticks a try. The colors are very vibrant and as soon as I tested them out on my lips I knew I was going to love them. They are creamy, don't dry out my lips (I apply a little lip balm before application just to me on the safe side) and easy to apply too. I wore the shade Dusty Rose to an event last Saturday and it lasted on my lips practically the rest of the day without reapplying! The are a matte formula which I usually stay away from, but these have changed my mind. Some of the brighter shades do stain the lips, so keep that in mind. When I was swatching these they did stain my arm for a couple of days.




EYESHADOW PALETTE

I wasn't as excited about this eyeshadow palette at first, but when I used some of the shades, I starred for you, I was pleasantly surprised. They blend out nicely on the lids and stay in place without a primer underneath. They aren't the best eyeshadows I have ever used, but they are really great for the price. This palette is great option for travel because it comes eyeshadows, blushes, lip colors, brow wax, mascara and even mini applicators.

Mustard Cardigan for Fall


To be honest, I didn't think I would love this color on my skin tone, but I picked it out because I wanted to try something a little different. Boy was I way off, this color actually looks really pretty and is perfect for the Fall. Another thing I love about this cardigan is that it is affordable and doesn't feel cheap! It is very cozy and feels so soft. I paired it with one of my favorite lace cold shoulder tops, denim jeans and booties.

This look is ideal for the upcoming cooler months. I can see me wearing this for date night or an event. If you are interested in this cardigan or any other item on Lyss Loo's website you can receive 15% off your order when using the code: 3PRWT6ZJ0CN8 at checkout.

Live, Love & Gameday


I have always been a lover of football, especially when I was younger. My dad, sister and I would stay up late to sing the intro song (Are you ready for some football?!) and watch the Cowboys play. The cowboys have always been my team (the 90s team was my favorite -- Troy Aikman, anyone?!). That is why I was so excited to discover Live, Love, Gameday. The company was started by a former Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader named Sydney in 2015. They don't sell your typical "team shirts", but that is why I like the company so much! In addition to football tees, they have baseball, softball, racing, soccer, hunting fishing and more.

I am sharing two looks, both very casual, but looks that would be perfect for your next tailgating party or just to watch the game at home with friends! I have to say both are really cute, but the second look is my favorite! Keep scrolling to shop the tees I am wearing here.

Pink Stripes for the End of Summer


Even though I am so excited for fall, sweaters and layering, I am still holding on to that last bit of warmth here in Dallas! It will most likely be warm here for another couple of months, so lucky us right?! I picked this dress up for our trip to California because I thought it would make the perfect dress for dinner out with the family. I can easily get away with wearing it for a couple more months here in Dallas too.

This dress is not only comfortable, but really cute with the ruffle details. I went for a size small and it seemed to fit perfectly. The best thing about this dress is it is super affordable at under $15! A great deal for a really cute piece.
