Flashy Fingers

It's no secret I love me some Flash Tattoos. So, natch, I added added a little one-two-punch to my basic pink mani with some Sheebani designs. I love how it turned out, and - more importantly - how easy it was. Ain't nobody got time for those complicated nail art tutorials on Pinterest. Bling bling!

Wanna deck your nails out too? Check out the post I wrote on the Flash blog for the full tutorial.

Recent Bobbi Brown Beauty Buys

Being stuck inside during a very rainy (and slighty terrifying) Memorial Day weekend, a makeup bag full of empties, and a voucher offer on Gilt City for $30 off at Bobbi Brown's website meant it was the perfect time to go on a little beauty bender. I've never had a bad experience with Bobbi's line in the past (and there's some nostalgia there since I used her line for my wedding day), so I kinda had this #treatyoself mentality and went nuts. Here's the general consensus of what I stocked up on:

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick // I loved my Benefit foundation while it lasted, but I ran out and bought some cheapo Boots foundation to tide me over. Sometimes liquid foundation is a little high maintenance or too much for everyday. My co-worker Alex uses a foundation stick, which basically made me realize I pretty much needed one ASAP. I love how quick and easy it is to even out your skin tone without getting foundation cake face. Bonus points for it being TSA-friendly.

Bobbi Brown Corrector // Where the hell has this product been all my life? It zaps the blue out from under my eyes like a boss. You just put this on, then layer your regular concealer (I'm still using this one) over it for dark circle coverage that doesn't look super thick but definitely does the job.

Bobbi Brown Bronzer // I wear bronzer year round, so I've got a few faves but this one is a classic matte option that works well for everyday. I got the Golden Light color. Me gusta.

Bobbi Brown Brightening Finishing Powder // This was a new one for me, and to be honest, when I first put it on I was like "nooooooo." It kinda makes my face look like some kind of sparkly Twilight-esque vampire...but with a slight tan. A definitely departure for this matte girl. Jury's still out on this one...need to play with it a bit more.

So there you have it. Spring beauty arsenal almost complete. And vow to not spend any more money has been made.


DIY Terrariums With Slavonk & Hortus at Loveding

Earlier this week, a bunch of seriously awesome Austin blogger babes and creative cool kids gathered together at LoveDing for a Slavonk & Hortus Terraria DIY terrarium workshop. LoveDing is a total gem on the southside of Austin, and most definitely my new favorite shop...I was literally stroking out over all the amazingly priced vintage finds, adorable art, hilarious cards, soft blankets, neon Acapulco chairs, and gifts that would be very hard to actually not keep for yourself. I kinda went into hoard mode, and picked up a few goodies that I couldn't resist...including that very fancy gold Morrocan poof and a cute Turkish towel. Nothing like an oversized impulse buy to make the night (and my living room) feel extra special. ;) 

I don't know if it was the excitement of being surrounded by some of my favorite baes in Austin (I'm looking at you, JesseMichelleCelineSaraTinaBrittAnneAshleyChelsea, and Kelsey...), the thrill of getting my hands dirty while making the cutest little terrarium there ever was, or the completely beautiful heart-fluttering objects that surrounded us, but that night was seriously one of the best times I've had in a while. 

If all this fabulousness has you itching for a trip down south, you should definitely come anytime...but definitely try to make it to the next Terrarium Workshop at LoveDing on June 30th ($40). It's a guaranteed good time. Reserve your tix here!

I copped this photo from the beautiful Jesse Coulter...she's the fox in the middle. Michelle and Sara are to her left, Celine and some ridiculously tall weird chick with a strangely named blog to her right. ;)
