KL Polish Review #2

So I have always loved following makeup YouTubers and although I have been following them a little less lately one I really liked was Kathleen Lights and she came out with a nail polish last year, its called KL Polish. I bought two colors last year called Coconut Milk and Hug n Roll.  The nail polishes I received were shattered but I was quickly sent a replacement! Something I don't blame them but the post office.  I really liked the formula, packaging, and colors so I thought I'd give it another try.  

So here are the colors I purchased; Graham, Pinky, Dreamboy and Miss Honey.

My initial thoughts: Well you know me I got all these nail polishes and put them all on one hand immediately.  And putting them all next to each other wasn't the prettiest thing I could have done. 

At least I LOVED Pinky.  I am looking for a subdued pink for my wedding and I think this may be perfect.  Dreamboy is a perfect spring/summer color and a lot different than Hug n Roll.  It changes based on what its compared to and can look more blue or more purple.  I love the versatitiy.

I wasn't so certain on Graham, I was looking for a gray and KL polish has a few, I thought this one would be perfect for my lighter skin tone.  I am currently wearing it and I love it.  It was just compared with all the other colors I wasn't certain.  Its a perfect grey without being overpowering. 

I wasn't sure about Miss Honey, it looked a lot more terracotta than I was expecting.  I think it because my skin is so pale right now that I will be stunning with more of tan.  

Here are photos I got from their website on different skin tones so you can see.

Overall: I still love the nail polish.  The packaging is great,  I will say my dream boy wand is missing a few bristles but I'm working with customer service now to get it fixed. UPDATE: They wont give me a replacement because they cant see damage to the wand even though it is missing bristles. Im bummed because its hard to use but still useable. 

The formula is great, its made without a lot of toxins which is of course awesome.  And last for a really long time without chipping and I use no base or top coat! 

I'd recommend thin layers like the website says but its very buildable.  I really like this nail polish and highly recommend it, just wish it were in stores!

So do you have your eyes on any of the colors?

Engagement Photos

Hey everyone! Since our save the dates just went out I want to share some of our engagement photos with you! And to tell you how I choose our outfits.  This took way more time and I would like to admit but I also feel like our pictures came out well because of it.  I love fall and I wanted to get outfits that went well with fall leaves but we felt comfortable in as well. 

I knew I wanted the traditional two outfits, one casual and one more dressy.  I have seen a lot of friends go for more flowy dresses but with my body type that just doesn't work.  I wanted a more structured dress and so I got this one from lulus! 

I got the advice that we should try to dress in the colors that would be our wedding colors because it would look so nice on our website.  That turned out to be a lot harder than expected so I just did the colors. The other piece of advice I got was to mix textures, so Henry had a plaid shirt and I went a little plainer. 

I got my outfit first and then Henry's because I thought that may be easier.  (I was sorta wrong but it did all workout :) ) That is my piece of advice since I think its harder for women sometimes to feel more comfortable in their outfits.

That's my #1 tip is get something that you feel comfortable in because it shows in photos.  I did like the idea of a skirt but I knew that I would constantly be adjusting and worrying.

Ps. I used Minted for our Save the Dates and I LOVED how they turned out!

Here are some of the items for our outfits! And some couldnt link like:

Valentines Day Look + Freebies!

Hey friends! I hope you have some fun plans for Valentines Day or Galentines Day! I like to think its a fun day to really play up your feminine side.  Upon your request on Instagram, I pulled some of my favorite looks for makeup and outfits! Whether you're going for something more casual or dressed up! Read till the end to check out some of the freebie's I've made for you! 

REMEMBER WHEN SHOPPING: Use Ebates for cash back and coupons! Honey is a great back up when Ebates doesn't work on the site.

Makeup:

I loved these 3 looks. A bold lip with gold eye shadow is pretty simple really but always a stunner! 

I also love the look of a neutral eye, maybe with a wing to spice it up a little.  Then a pink lip gloss.  I have been loving Bare Minerals Lip Glosses lately, I think the colors flirt or heartbreaker would look so pretty (how fitting are those names). Or maybe you just want a more subtle look with a pink look.  I think this look is so romantic and pretty.

You couldn't go wrong either way! 

I think these products will help you acheive all of these looks! I've gathered high end items and drugstore! 

This year, I think Henry and I are laying pretty low, but I still want to dress up a little in some pink or red.  I'm loving a deep burgundy sweater or a white twist sweater.  Just something a little different.  I also found these beautiful red dresses. I dont think you need to go all out.  Just through on a cute pair of heels and match it with one of the make up looks! But you can also go all out to a fancy dinner.  I am a firm believer that Valentines day is how you want to spend it, whether its curled up on the couch or out to a fancy dinner! 

I pulled some items for every occasion!

I wanted to give some freebies out for Valentines Day as my treat to you! Whether you're putting together a galentines event, making coupons for your man or just giving a card, I've got you covered!
