I just can't help but to start dressing for Fall. I am so over summer clothes and the Summer heat! Plaid is such a staple for the Fall months. So I couldn't resist this shirt from Nordstrom. I love just throwing on cute jeans, boots and a fall shirt and maybe even adding a vest. It is never to early to start shoping your favorite Fall pieces. Oh and don't mind my frizzy hair. It pretty much started raining as soon as we started taking pictures. 

I am excited about all of the Labor day sales! Tory Burch is having a great Labor day sale. Spend $300 and get 20% off, spend $500 and get 25% off, or spend $750 and get 30% off. We all know it is esy to spend that at Tory Burch. Especially if you are in the market for new boots or a new bag! I linked my favorite pieces below. Enter code LABORDAY14 at checkout. Happy shopping.

I hope you guys have a great weekend. I am so excited because my mom is in town! She is pretty much an interior designer so she came down to help me work on the nursery. I can't wait to share it with you guys. Thanks for stopping by.

My Vanity and Makeup Favorites...

Vanity: Ikea, Stool: Ikea, Rug: Ikea, Pouf: LuLu and Georgia c/o, Makeup Brush holders: Ikea, Candle: Ikea, Picture frame: Bed bath and beyond

My vanity is probably one of my favorite things in my house. I really love it so much! It has the perfect amount of storage between the 2 drawers on top and the one long drawer underneath. I keep all of my lipsticks and lip glosses in the two drawers on top. And all of my makeup that I use everyday in the big drawer. I love that the big drawer comes with three dividers in it, so it is easy to keep things organized. 

The bench is also from Ikea. I couldn't find it online. It does not come with the vanity. I don't really shop at ikea all that much just because we think it is such a pain to put together the furniture. Matt literally hates doing it. But this vanity is so worth it. I think it is a great price and a great quality and I really recommend it. 

Now onto my makeup... (sorry this post is so long)

1: Mac studio fix fluid (NC 20), 2: Channel concealer (shade 10), 3: Nars concealer (chantilly), 4: MAC prep and prime highlighter (light boost), 5: Banana Luxury Powder, 6: Mac mineralize skin finish (light plus), 7: Mac Emphasize (sold at pro stores), 8: Tarte amazonian clay

Okay these are my favorite face products. Some are new and some are old. I don't use all of these together but these are all my favorites that I rotate between. The Mac foundation is my all time favorite that I have been using forever. I use the channel concealer on my cheeks on a few scars and the nars foundation under my eyes to highlight and conceal. I set my foundation either with number 6 or 8 and I use number 5 or 7 to set my concealer. I number 4 to highlight my forehead nose and chin. 

1: Coastal scents blush palette, 2: Hourglass ambiant lighting powder (luminous light), 3: Perricone MD bronzer, 4: Tarte amazonian clay blush (exposed), 5: Nars Bronzer (laguna)

These are my favorite blushes, Bronzers and highlighting powder. I use either number 3 or 5 to contour my face after I am done with my foundation. Then I put on my blush and then I go over the highlighted areas with number 2 to give them a little more of the highlighted affect. This powder is great because it is not to shimmery. Again I don't use all of these at  the same time its just what I am in the mood for that day!

1: Sigma, 2: Ulta, 3: Mac large bronzer brush (no longer available), 4: Coastal scents large kabuki, 5: Sigma, 6: Sigma, 7: Tarte

These are my favorite brushes for all of the products I listed above. Number 7 is THE best brush for applying my liquid foundation. It makes it go on so smooth and so fast. Number 6 is literally The best brush for applying under eye concealer. I don't know what I did before I had that brush. I use 4 to apply my blush and 5 to contour my face. 

1) Mac eyeshadow palette that I made, 2: Makeup Geek palette and makeup geek eyeshadows, 3: Loreal, 4: Urban Decay (perversion), 5: Cover girl, 6: Loreal

These are my 2 favorite eyeshadow palettes that I created myself. These are the colors that I use most often. Number 3 is what I use on the on my top eyelid and number 4 I use to line my water line. I prime my eyelashes with number 6 and then coat them with number 5. I have been using this mascara forever and Its is my favorite of all the mascaras I have tried. 

1: Sigma, 2: Mac (old), 3: Mac (also old), 4: random brand, 5: Mac, 6: Mac soar lip pencil, 7: Mac Angel lipstick, 8: Mac nymphette lipgloss

These are my favorite eyeshadow brushes. I just really started doing more eye makeup. I never really used to mess with putting on to much eye shadow. But since I have been wearing a lighter lipstick I have been ore into doing my eyes. I like to do one or the other. Either a bold lip or eye. I feel like if I do both it is to much.  This lip combo has been what I have been wearing everyday! 

Sorry this post was so long. I just wanted to share all of my favorite makeup products. I don't do this routine everyday by any means. But these are the products that I find work best for me. My skin is on the dryer side and I am really prone to hormonal breakouts. I also have been using this Clarisonic brush and it has really been helping my skin. I think I was the last person to get a clarisonic! But it is so worth the money. It really helps with my breakouts. I just use it with Neutrogena visibly even cleanser.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy hump day...

My Go To...

Top: Nordstrom not maternity ( $16! Runs long I am wearing xs) also love this and this, Leggings: Blanqi c/o ( so comfortable), Shoes: old similar here also love these and these, Bag: Phillip Lim also love this, Necklace: Purple Peridot c/o, Bracelets: Olive and Piper c/o, Nordstrom, Hat: Nordstrom, Sunglasses: similar here and here

I have literally been wearing a hat every single day! I think because I have recently bought so many hats that I love and also because I need my hair colored so bad. It is a great way to hide my roots and still feel cute. There are few things I hate more then having really bad roots. It drives me insane. But since I have been pregnant I am trying not to color my hair as much. But I have reached the point that I can't take it anymore so It is getting done hopefully next week. Good thing I love my new hats. 

This is just a comfortable go to look that I have been wearing a lot since I have been pregnant. I really love my Blanqi leggings. They are super comfortable and I love how they fell like they support your belly. I know these are going to come in handy, especially when my bump gets really big. I also love that they are seamless so if I am wearing a tighter top you can't see that they come all the way up on my belly. THese are a must have if you are pregnant. 

Thanks for stopping by.
