Don't worry, I have not forgotten about you at all! I have been away coming up with new ideas to expand my blog for this year. Last year was a wonderful amazing year but I know this year will be 10 times better! I have hired a web designer to completely re think and renovate my website! I hope you guys love what is in store! Thank you for being patient and bearing with me! My site should be up and running with in the next few weeks! Love you guys!
After a small break from my blog, I am finally back! I thought a great way to return was to come up with a few gift guides to share. The first of my gift guide series is "for her". Whether the woman you are shopping for is A Book Worm, A Beauty Guru, or A Baker, there is a gift for every girl! This is my favorite time of year, not receiving gifts but giving them!

help you cross a few items off of your list this year!

As some of you may know, my life has gotten pretty hectic in the past few months. I have been trying to figure out how to make my schedule work with my blog so I can post every day but I just do not have the time being that I still need a steady income and need to work. I would like to some day make this blog my career but until then I need a solution so that all of my readers can constantly have new material to read and watch. With that being said I have decided to bring on a few guest bloggers. I want a few people who can write and design 1-2 blogposts per week. There are no word count requirements, the posts just need to be stylish and pull the reader in while also give good advice, tips, tricks and product/style recommendations. I would like to have girls who can write about an abundance of topics from health, beauty and style to fitness, recipes and travel. I am setting up a pretty good system for my guest bloggers to make the process very easy. I am not paying for this position but as a "fashion contributor" I will link your personal website to your blog post so we can increase your traffic as well as mine. I will also be developing a page on here where I will label it "the team" and have a picture of myself with my bio and also pictures and bios of my guest bloggers as well. I want to do all I can to make this the best and most informative beauty and fashion blog on the market and I would love to have great people on my team! I will soon have an application on my website for these position but for now just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and put Guest Blogger as the subject. For the body, just leave me your name, link to your website/blog (if you don't have one then let me know and we can work something out), if you have samples of your work you can put them in the attachments and also let me know why you would like to be a part of the team! Excited to hear from you girls! xoxo
I am taking a small break from my blog to
get material together and also get my life together.
I will be back in a week or two.
Thanks for the support
I have been thinking about doing this look for a month or two now and have been very excited about it. I am pretty pleased with how it turned out! It is my first ever Halloween makeup look. I plan to do a lot more Halloween tutorials next year but this one has gotten me in the mood to do so much more! This is a very exaggerated and fun Great Gatsby inspired look with crazy lashes, dark eyes and bright red lips. I added a pretty touch with this beautiful headpiece from Icing. All products will be listed in the description of my video here. Enjoy!
