So Summer is Almost Over.. Sort of...

Thursday, August 9, 2012

Right? To me it seems like summer is coming to an end. Maybe it is because I move into my new apartment on the 18th, or that classes start the 27th, but it seems like summer is about dunzo (Laguna Beach anyone?)-------->
Anyways. I have already started looking into "fall"-esque things. Clothing, decorations, food, makeup, etc. So in honor of my possibly too-early planning/thoughts/wants, I wanted to do a post about some of the stufffffff.

MAKEUP:
  • Something minimal. A barely there look, just fresh faced-you, but enhanced!
  •   Still natural, a little bronzer here and there, and maybe a light wash of color on the eyelids, but with a bold lip. I am really liking purple hues! 
        
I like the shade "14" from the above link. I think if you put a layer on, used a tissue or paper towel to dab some of the color off, and then put another LIGHT layer over top, it would not only look nice, but would also last longer because of the layering!
Mac "Captive" lipstick would also be so pretty!
Frosty beige/gold based lipsticks also are nice for fall... something like this:
Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Natural "N2 - Iridescent Beige"

But don't get me wrong, a great pink will still be awesome for fall-or all year around!

Clothing:
Definitely my go to look, hands down, will be something like this...
 I mean how classy, sophisticated, and gorgeous! I would love to rock the vest and jacket, with the tie barely peaking out! Oh, and that hat? Don't get me started! Where can I find this whole look?!

............YEAH GIRLLLLL. I am completely joking; this look is hideous to me... but I am sure someone brilliant could alter it and sort of replicate it : )

Anyways, on to something more me:








May or may not be drooling over all these...could I win the lotto for instant shopping money? Please? No? Alright. I'll just have to wait. 
Did I mention this was going to be a lengthy post? Welllllll I hope you stick around till the end!

Food:

No, I am not kidding. This exists. MMMM.

Did I mention I am officially turning my blog into a food blog? Well, I am not. But still, this food is enough to make me do it.

I have to end this post now-I not only am hungry and thirsty at this point, but I want like $25 lipstick and probably $2000 worth of fall clothes. So... stopping now. 
Feel free to leave a comment so we can TALK! Or, just let me know how hungry you are now.

Sunday Social-Week 9!

Sunday Social


1. What is your favorite Fall activity?
Helping the little ones in my family get ready for Halloween, the actual day of trick-or-treating, shopping for fall clothes (I consider that an activity haha), making/eating food for the cooler months!

 2. Do you follow a football team? if so which one and why? 
Not a super follower, but I do keep up with Ohio State (because it is my state and I have grown up watching them) and Cincinnati Bearcats-my university.
 
 3. What is something fun about Fall in your area? 
Besides the regular trick-or-treating for Halloween, we also have a couple different "scary" things you can do, like go to a haunted cornfield (where they chase you with a real chainsaw-without the chain on it of course- or you can go through pitch black building with occasional strobe lights, metal music and constant scaring from people jumping out at you!), go to a haunted maze, or on the totally not scary side, go to the maple syrup festival and get fresh syrup!

4. Fav Fall outfit staples? 
Things with color schemes like : cream colors with browns and neutrals, and burgundy or cranberry.  I also like navy a lot in the fall!


A good pair of boots are nice:

Peacoats also are one of my favorite staples!

5. Thing you are looking forward to most about this coming Fall season? 
Drinking warm apple cider...cute fall clothes, and thanksgiving!

 6. Favorite Fall holiday? Traditions?
Thanksgiving & the food, traditions-I don't think we really have any... besides drinking apple cider, the little kids going trick-or-treating. I am boring! : )

Go link up if you haven't, I really enjoy doing these!
