just because

~just because flowers and a splurge

I am so excited to own this palette. I am even more excited that I get to call the kindest, most generous, loving and wonderful fiance, husband soon.

I have coveted this palette for a few months now. I silently yearned for this beauty, and after one tiny brief remark to my loving fiance, these bad boys are mine.

Bad boy meaning the beautiful Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette but even more so meaning the amazing and wonderful fiance, that took my ‘….if you ever wanted to get me something, like ever, here’s an idea…’ comment and treated me to this wonderful palette the very next day! Then I get flowers delivered to top it all off? During the first week back to school? How did I get this lucky?! (Note to Self: remember this for future arguments, J-1 million L-0)

I definitely plan to review this, once my nerves calm from the excitement of blending these oh-so-buttery shades.

Stay tuned!!

Thanks for the lookie loos lovlies~

Herringbone: Pretty mint petals


I own the tiniest herringbone mini-skirt yet in my collection, and while its black and white pattern is very easy to pair colors with, I wanted to spice things up a bit with some color. This is the design I came up with. It felt very vintage and spring feeling, the look lasted around two weeks before the chipping lead to peeling, TISK, TISK, I know. If anyone has anti-peeling tips DIVULGE please!
