Resolution Part Fin and a Special Giveaway!

I really honestly feel like kicking myself in the bum for making a resolution to wear what I dont normally wear in my closet.  It is so incredibly hard.  However, yesterday I think I had a breakthrough even though I didn't end up wearing the outfit to work (it was too cold out) and opted for something warmer for my office (which is typically an ice box).

Enter the ModCloth dress...the first ModCloth dress I ever bought.  I wanted it so so bad that the poor ModCloth team probably received at least 50 notify me requests for when it would be back in stock and I have NEVER WORN IT.  I originally wanted it for my Wedding Shower but wore this dress instead.

Sweater: Target
Dress: ModCloth
Belt: Target
Leggings: DKNY
Booties: ModCloth

So I want to sort of copy a bit off Mel from idée_géniale and post my makeup.  I never really do close-ups so here is one of my normal day makeup.

I don't really wear MUCH makeup considering I own thousands and thousands of dollar worth of perfectly good makeup.  I just dont have time and this is my fail-safe way of always looking pretty.  I am wearing:


CARGO Blu-Ray Powder


Benefit Dandelion Face Color (as a blush)

Burt's Bees Lip Balm


Smashbox Eyeshadow Trio in Viewfinder


Benefit Baby Cakes Eyeliner


Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara

I know, pretty simple.   

Ok, ok...the Give Away!

So, as many of you know, I work for a very well known American beauty company call ULTA and as part of ULTA, we often have some very awesome Friends & Family events.  The end of the year is no different and I would love for all of you to take part!  How does it work?  Well, you have to have a Friends & Family exclusive postcard which I am willing to send to anyone that is willing to give me an address to send to!  Just EMAIL ME!

Hey! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog--I took a good close look at your fringe, and if you're DIYing it yourself--you're doing a great job! Your bangs are beautiful....mine are shaped slightly different than yours, but I have the same technique of cutting upwards at a slant for texture and to keep it from looking a bit too blunt.
BTW-I love your makeup, sooo fresh faced and natural; it really looks pretty.
