Bridal Shower + Gender Reveal

I’m inundated with wedding activities for a while.  Last weekend I got to attend the bridal shower of one of my best friends!  This was followed by her sister’s gender reveal, which was such a pleasant surprise!

Otherwise, all I’ve been up to is Terrace House!  I’m sure we’ll talk about that more soon.

Naked Heat

My improved make-up skills go hand-in-hand with learning what suits me.  For eye shadow, it’s always been warmth.  With my blue eyes and light skin, nothing lights me up like a warm shadow look.  When I heard about the Naked Heat palette, I knew it would be the best one for me yet.

In truth, I don’t reach much for my Naked palettes much any more.  The neutral shades were great when I was apprehensive about eye shadow, but they lack the golden, bronze, and orange shades I’m drawn to.  I love reddish shades and golden-flecked pinks.  Naked Heat swept in and saved the day.

Au revoir, August

The summer’s been so busy.  Talking to my friends last weekend, it seems like we all experienced that.  I can’t say I’m happy that the summer is gone in the blink of an eye, but I’m so looking forward to September, October, November, and December.  The end of the year is going to be busy, but I’m so excited to get to 2018, when we’ll be tying the knot!  So, I won’t miss you, August… but here’s some of my favorite moments.
