When the air turns crisp and the sun sets earlier, there is nothing I love more than hurrying on home, after a long day at the office, to get warm and cozy.
When I was approached by Adore Me and asked to pick my favorite style (along with autumn makeup trend) I knew exactly what my picks would be! Continue reading
Happy January, folks!
I hope you all had a fabulous New Years Eve spent with friends, family, laughter, food, drink and the promises of a fabulous year ahead.
Me? I was asleep before the ball dropped.
Onward! Continue reading

I can’t believe it’s already December. This year has flown by. I am very much in the Christmas spirit this year. The tree was up the weekend after Thanksgiving, I’ve got gifts on order, holiday music is my main Pandora station and Christmas movies are constantly on.. well, they’re on as much as the boyfriend can stand them! 😉
You know what the beginning of another month means. Ipsy has started to release their sneak peeks! Let’s see what kind of beauties we will be playing with this month! Continue reading
It’s Friday the 13th! I feel like I should celebrate by watching some scary movies today! It’s, typically, a day of silly superstitions for most. If anything goes wrong, it’s more than likely the dates fault.
I don’t know. I’m having a pretty good one so far! Continue reading
For me, and my group of friends, this means the start of summer. It’s the beginning of the warmer weather, beach, pool, BBQ, picnics, etc.
Although, it’s a joyous time where millions of Americans are getting together to enjoy the weather, friends, family and food, it’s also a time to remember what this country stands for. Please take some time this weekend to remember the lives lost representing our country, the families of these fallen soldiers, and the young men and women still out there, enlisting and fighting. ❤ Thank you for all you do.

I bought two new-to-me products on Amazon a few days ago. I’ve, since, tried both products and have fallen in love. Check out my review on NYX Matte Lipstick in Merlot & Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner in Intense Black! Continue reading
MAC Alluring Aquatic Summer Collection 2014
Oh, how I wish I was one of those beauty guru bloggers who get early releases of these fabulous products to swatch and review for us consumers. I woke up this morning and learned that MAC is releasing their Alluring Aquatic collection on May 15th at maccosmetics.com and will be available for purchase in store on May 22nd. Let’s dive into a few photos. Shall we?
I have never been a lipstick wearer. I never thought I was woman enough or maybe even sexual enough to pull off a shocking red like the beauty above. I thought it looked odd on my face. I thought I looked stupid. I thought I was ugly and ugly girls shouldn’t pretend to be pretty. (Side note! If any of you are on IG follow me @justnikki326! I’m constantly posting photos of my makeup looks and outfits I throw together. Oh, and sunsets. I love sunsets. And beer. Onward to the post!)
Guys. Red lipstick. Omg. Why have I been so frightened to embark on this wonderful and glorious shade?
I got my Mac Viva Glam 1 lipstick in the mail and I am absolutely head over heals in love with it. It’s perfect for my skin tone. Not too light. Not too dark. It’s a gorgeous and classic brick red with just the right amount of pigmentation. The one and only downside with the product is the dryness. If you don’t like dry lips (who does?) put a light coat of your favorite lip balm underneath. I personally use EOS in melon flavor and it works great. If you’d rather top off your matte lip shade with a lip gloss for a more fierce look, do it up! I, unfortunately, do not have a photo to share but the next time I get dolled up with that beastly color, I’ll be sure to take a few snapshots! 😉 Continue reading
