Heat Wave


Last Thursday was a big day for me, I bought my vey first lipstick. After months, and months of watching YouTube videos and reading beauty blogs, I finally felt I had a fair understanding of lipsticks (why do they seem so complicated?) and which ones I thought might work best for me. So after thinking it over, and over again (see, complicated!) I finally took the plunge and bought my very first lipstick, Nars' Heat Wave.



To me, Heat Wave (even with its bold color) seemed like a safe bet. The following behind this cult classic lipstick made me believe that if so many other women loved it and rocked it often, that I could too. Seeing it on my friend, Courtney, also gave me that extra shove I needed to give it a go. I'm already excited to give a few other lipsticks a try and would love to hear what your favorites are!




And because I was feeling a little adventurous with my new lipstick, I though it would be fun to step out of my fashion comfort zone once again with this hip-hugging pencil skirt. Usually, I'm always one for a flowy waistline, but the black and white print on this LuLu*s pencil skirt was too amazing to pass up. I LOVE the stretchy knit fabric, the high waist and how polished it made me feel. I may just have to pick up a few more pencil skirts for fall (think plum, burgundy, and mustard yellow!).

Today I'm headed to class and will probably stop for a coffee and a sweet treat along the way (because that makes going to class that much more better!). I'm also feeling pretty on top of my school work, and think I'm going to take some time and finally finish the book, The Happiness Project, I started way back at the beginning of summer (I'm already excited about her new book!). The LuLu*s Style Studio event is also on my mind and I'm wanting to know how many of you local ladies are coming! Leave me a comment and let me know if you can make it! Ok, have a wonderful day everyone!
