Music Festival Look with ShopSosie

Spring and Summer is the perfect time to go to a musical festival. Going somewhere to hear a wide variety of music and different artists... ahhh :) I've never been to a big music festival before, but I love going to local gigs. For my festival look, I went for more whimsical. There are definitely so many styles to go for, but this was more relaxed to me. Sosie has all of those styles! 

Whether you want a classy look or a more bohemian outfit, this online shop has it all. Seriously though, no joke. I love everything that they have, but I especially love their Spring and Summer pieces right now. And of course their pieces to make a musical festival outfit!

Makeup Favorites

Makeup is a funny thing. There will be a product that I will use for years and years and then there will be something else that I'm always changing my mind on. I've gotten a couple e-mails on how I did my eye makeup in the picture below. So today I thought I would share my current favorites with you and what exactly I used to do my make up. I know I'm always looking for recommendations so I hope mine help! 

If you have any other questions, please e-mail me or leave a comment below!

The make up look that I got e-mails about was from this post. I went for a very light, Spring look.


I love this stuff! As you can tell I'm running low and will be needing some more soon. I love it because it does not make my face itchy like some foundations and my skin is not oily! I use the shade ivory.

2. Maybelline's Age Rewind Concealer
This concealer is magic. I use it under my eyes and I absolutely love it.If you have dark circles, trust me on this one! I use the fair/light.


3. Maybelline's Baby Skin Pore Eraser
This is a new product from Maybelline. It literally makes your skin feel like a baby's butt! No idea how. My face has never felt so soft before. As for covering up pores, I've only noticed a slight difference, but I haven't been using it for that long. It can be used under your foundation or powder.


I wear this eye shadow pretty much everyday. It's the only eye shadow that I put on my eye when I use it. I brush it onto my lid then blend it out towards my brow. It kind of does it's own smokey eye without tons of eye shadow.


I love this color because it brings out my hazel eyes. If you haven't tried this line of MAC's you definitely need to. It's been a favorite for a long time and it goes on so soft.


6. L'oreal's Double Extend Mascara
This is one of those products that I have used for years! Yes, a lot of people find it annoying to put the white on first then the black, but it's my favorite! I get asked a lot if I have fake eyelashes. Nope! I don't. I have long eyelashes, but this mascara makes them seem even longer :)


7. Maybelline's Baby Lips Dr. Rescue
Everyone needs to have one of these! It makes your lips feel super soft and super fresh :) The shade I used is Just Peachy. It has some eucalyptus in it, which is one of my favorite smells. It makes you lips feel cold?? Icy?? Tingly? I don't know, but it feels good.


8. L'oreal's Nail Polish
This is a favorite of mine for Spring right now. It's the color Tangerine Crush. It's bright and fun and it's actually a good color for Spring and Summer.

PEACE & LOVE

I hope everyone had a great Easter! We laid pretty low this Easter. It was just the two of us, but we ended up still making a big Easter dinner with the foods we grew up eating. It was delicious! Now back to the Monday grind.

Today I'm wearing a piece from Bethany Mota's new line at Aeropostale. She has some of the cutest pieces right now and I just love this peace heart sweater. A sweater for warm weather?? (yes I meant to rhyme!) It is actually really lightweight and the material is thin. I didn't get hot in this at all. I just went for a simple look, but added a side braid to spice it up just a bit! Definitely check out her new line as well as the other looks from Aeropostale!

More Red Please

I don't have many red clothes in my closet, actually I have this red shirt and a dark red leather jacket. It's not like I don't like the color red, but it has never been a color that pops out to me when buying clothes. Green seems to that way as well, not a lot of green clothes. Anyone else have a color they like, but don't buy that color of clothing?

The weekend is finally here. We will probably stay in tonight and maybe we will be getting ice cream while watching a red box or one of my new movies I got for my birthday :) I'm such a homebody. I love going out, but usually my first choice would be to stay in and wear sweats and watch two movies in a row or hours and hours of SNL and Jimmy Fallon.

Saturday, however, I may get some shopping done. I have found some good Spring deals around. But if you really want a good deal, head over to coupons.com to find you coupon deals! I got this shirt with a Forever 21 coupon code. It's so nice to be able to get free shipping on orders as well as extra savings on already low prices. Coupons.com is also having a 16 day long Spring Fling contest! There will be one winner per day and you could win a daily cash prize of $200 or the grand prize of $1,000! I will be entering :)

Have a good weekend friends!

Flower Headband & The Killer Snake

Happy Tuesday! I haven't shared what I did on my birthday, but it was wonderful! I woke up to streamers and balloons in the house. I LOVE birthday decorations! Like little kids themed birthday parties! I had to work, but after Dallin took me to a Brazilian grill which was so good! I ate way too much food and had too many Brazilian lemonades. Definitely worth it though. After he surprised me by taking me to BYU's ballroom dance show. It was incredible! I cried in three of the songs...I know, I'm a baby when it comes to brilliant dances. I seriously loved it. They were amazing. It was such a fun birthday :) 

This outfit is very boho fashion. To me it's comfortable. It's one of those outfits that I could wear everyday. Floral headbands are in right now and to me they add so much to an outfit. I feel relaxed when I wear one. Weird? Haha seriously though. They're nice.

I was able to get my jeans and sandals on sale! Which it's always good to save some money! The jeans are not on sale anymore, but coupons.com offers great deals and savings. Be sure to get some Forever 21 coupon codes and American Eagle coupon codes to save on these items and more!

Ok....so the killer snake. Ariel and I were out taking pictures when we saw this spot that I'm standing in front of and thought it would be perfect with the lighting and what not. So when I started to walk into the grass this stick like figure caught my eye. It was a snake! Ok...I'm TERRIFIED of snakes. As in they give me panic attacks and raise my pulse through the roof! This was a long silver snake. Probably 2 inch fangs and poisonous venom just waiting for the perfect moment to attack. I may be exaggerating a bit and I'm sure it was more scared of us, but good grief I seriously hate snakes.










Reaction to the snake that almost killed me!!....

Hallmark-Easter Cards

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of  a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser. #EasterValue #CollectiveBias

Easter is just around the corner! This year I have definitely been more on top of getting my Easter cards ready to send out. This year I had the help of my niece to get my Easter package ready to send out on time. I'm not able to go home this Easter, but Hallmark had such a variety of cards, I was able to pick one out for everyone in the family.



Hallmark cards can be found at a local Walmart and another plus is how reasonably priced these Easter cards are. It's great because you can earn rewards by buying Hallmark cards at Walmart. For every five cards you buy you can earn a reward with the Hallmark Card Reward Program. It can make the card up to half off! It's easy to sign up and saves you in the long run.



We had so much fun putting together this package and picking out the different cards. They had so many cute cards! I wanted to buy all of them. Every card was so fun to decorate and personalize. Elizabeth was so creative with the stickers, it put my cards to shame! I feel like a lot of people don't send cards anymore, but it really can be so personable to someone and also mean so much!





I'm excited for everyone to get their card in the mail! Make sure you check out connectionsfromhallmark.com to sign up for Hallmark rewards. Be sure to join in the conversation on Twitter using hashtags #EasterValue and #CollectiveBias to see other ideas from bloggers using Hallmark cards!
