Big Hair Alert!!

Growing up in the pageant world has my scale of daily hair goals set pretty high. And by high, I mean…the higher the hair, the closer to God you are.  Here in the south, we like big volume and a whole lotta tease.

Now, I’ve been out of pageants for many years now, but I can confidently say that my teased up hair will be around for the rest of my days. You wanna know why? Because nobody likes dull, flat hair, that’s why!

Today I am sharing one of my new secret hair weapons with you that wasn’t around in my pageant days – and I sure wish it was. I’ve teamed up with Living Proof and Influenster to showcase a new product called “Dry Volume Blast”.

5 Beauty Products for an Endless Summer

Endless Summer BT

It’s that time of year again. You know what I’m talking about – when the 1st day of September hits and folks insist that its Fall and the boots and sweaters come out and there is a pumpkin spiced latte in the hand of literally everyone. Yep. It’s here, but its still just too hot outside to hide my toes in boots. Here in Arkansas we are STILL reaching the 80’s.

Did you know that the official first day of Fall is not until September 22 this year? Yea! We still have a few more weeks to soak up every ounce of summer we can! I am refusing to put away the sandals this early. Instead, I am going to make this an endless summer with a few products that will brighten our day and make us feel like it’s 80 degrees outside all year around.

The Estée Edit Collection

Estee Edit Collection Review

Happpyy Fridayy!!

I am so excited to introduce to you the New! Estée Lauder beauty line called The Estée Edit! There are some pretty great products within this line that I have to tell you about!

I am all about a beauty routine that is simplistic and easy to accomplish in 5-7 minutes. (I’m sure the fiancee appreciates that too 🙂 ) I feel like the more I explore different makeups and beauty products I always resort to the ones that enable me to get that elegant natural look that can be dialed down for a day-to-day wear, but then can be dialed up for more of a date night look and feel. And that’s exactly what I love about the new Estée Edit collection – the products are so versatile. You can mix and match, blend and even use them by themselves.

Inside the Mysterious Purse

I have always been a fan of over-sized purses and bags, but often times I found myself lugging around unnecessary things.  This made my purse really heavy and kind of a pain to carry around. So how do I fix the problem? Dump it all out.

So you may be curious as to what is inside my purse. Well, its contents really shows a lot about who I am. Take a look at my “necessities.”


Wallet – Gotta have it! I really like my red studded wallet. I bought it at a second hand boutique while in college. It is made of a really soft leather and is the perfect size. Plus it is stylish if I decide to just carry it by itself.

Journal & Pen – This is more than just a journal. It contains my thoughts, scribbles, quotes, prayers and tons of other random things. I actually made this about a year ago. I bought a standard brown notebook and painted and studded it with pearls, rhinestones and a flower. I love it! I carry this with me because I am constantly finding myself hearing or seeing something that interests me and I just want to write it down to go back to later.

External hard drive – My hard drive literally has my life on it! School work, papers, resume reels, other resumes, job resources, videos, photos. It helps me feel prepared for whatever might come up!

Headphones – I am not usually one to use headphones everywhere I go, but it always seems like I don’t have a pair when I really want them. So…I keep’em in my purse! I normally only need them when at work or out for a run.

Thank you cards – Giving thank you cards is a great way to show a little appreciation when someone least suspects it. I always keep them handy. Plus…I love getting little things like that!

Jewelry – My big rings usually end up in my purse by the end of the day. Just one of those random things you will most likely find.

Perfume roller – Never know when you might need a little freshening up during the day or on the go! The roller is so much easier to carry around than the whole bottle. This little pink perfume roller is from Express and it smells oh so good! I also have another tiny perfume sample…idk where I picked that one up from.

Makeup – I am a lip gloss lover! I have more than too many. You will find some sort of lip product (gloss, lipstick, chap stick, balm) 100% of the time. It is just one of those essentials you do not want to get caught without. Chapped lips are no fun.

Mini nail files – I received this cute little box of mini nail files from Birchbox. They are really handy! Although I will confess I don’t really use them much. But…when I need one…Bam. I got it covered.

Arkansas Razorback Button – A true Razorback fan is always prepared to show some team spirit! I like to wear this button on game days…or any day I really feel like it. It is super cute! Go Hogs! Woo Pig Sooie!

What do you have in your purse? Anything interesting that we would never expect? (socks, broccoli, coffee mug, etc?)
