Mascara Maven

mascara review

Maven is defined as someone who is an expert in a particular subject. Lately the only thing I have felt like a maven in is being EXTREMELY busy. From running events, to graduations to family visiting from out of town and now preparing to travel for the summer. Life has been full to say the least.  My time has become extremely precious and my daily beauty routine is honestly in a minimalist mode. Regardless of how hectic life gets one thing I make time for that assists with pulling my overall look together is mascara. Mascara is one of my fundamental beauty products as it literally takes seconds to apply and can make a dramatic difference.

Earrning My Wings: Running The Tinkerbell Half Marathon

We have all heard the quote "Cinderella is proof that a pair of shoes can change your life."  Well I adore a great pair of shoes and running shoes are no exception and they have indeed changed my life. I have previously shared my passion for running here highlighting fitness focused posts. If you follow my blog regularly you know I have embarked on and currently am on a weight loss journey.  I am not a natural "runner" or athlete in any way shape or from however, I do LOVE to run. Running provides me with positive energy as its gives me a sense of freedom and accomplishment.

Paper Crown + Rifle Paper Co.

I will admit there are a few stores that I don't generally walk past. As I enjoy going inside just to take a peek at items on the sales floor. Sometimes I find an item I can't live without or a great sale that is just icing on the cake. If you follow my blog regularly you know one such store is Anthropologie. Last week I was making my shopping rounds when I found a Paper Crown + Rifle Paper Co. Poppy Field Dress.  I instantly fell in love with the feminine and free flowing piece. I am familiar with Lauren Conrad's elevated Paper Crown line and had the opportunity to attend the Paper Crown x Rifle Paper Co. Pop Up Shop at The Grove over Valentine’s Day weekend this past February. One of the aspects that I have come to enjoy from Anthro. is their consistent ability to introduce me to new brands and showcase familiar favorites. The Poppy field dress is no exception and I can't wait to wear this updated feminine sun dress this summer.
I've also selected a few of my favorite Rifle Paper Co. items showcasing their signature feminine florals.
Don't forget you still have time to enter the Coach giveaway!
Which is your favorite floral item?

Styling Gingham + Coach Giveaway

  I am thrilled about this weekend I have been planning a "Runcation" (run weekend & vacation all in one) for a year now. My family and I will be participating in the Tinkerbell Half Marathon Weekend at the Disneyland Resort. I will be running the 10K on Saturday and the 1/2 Marathon on Sunday. Lately it feels as though participating in runs is becoming a theme.  Another theme will be comfortable sports wear so you know I had to get a few flowy skirts in prior to the race.

The brand has yet to maintain stock to meet the every increasing demand for the highly coveted bag in virtually every color. Encouraging many designers to reissue archive styles and once again focus on the "hobo" style bag.
