This is the brush I use for my foundation and the cleanser that I use weekly. Cleaning my makeup brushes was always a pain in the behind. This is the best cleanser I've been able to find. It actually works and doesn't take long to use.
I first heard about this eyeshadow palette on Brittney Kelley's Instagram. She was sharing her whole makeup routine on her Insta stories. I knew I needed to get new eyeshadow soon. My caviar sticks were about to run out.
Once the caviar sticks had only a few days left worth of use, I placed my order online for this Soft Glam palette. When my Mom was in town we looked at it in store to make sure the colors were just as pretty in person.
Yesterday was the first day to give it a spin. I wore the Bronze on my lids and then applied Rustic in the crease. Today I'm wearing Glistening on my lids and a color called Orange Soda in the crease. This palette is so fun to use! I'm not an expert at makeup. If you're an expert I can't even imagine all the possibilities you'll have with these colors.
I've been using dry shampoo this year in order to be more efficient. Why it took me this long to realize how amazing it is, I couldn't tell you. We can't be killing it in all areas of life, ya know?
I started out with Oribe and then switched to R+Co. Both were great and got the job done but the Oribe product is too expensive and eventually curiosity lead to a third brand. For the third brand I went with Living Proof, the travel size. If you're looking to try new products buying the travel size is a good way to test it out without buying the big bottle. I've yet to try the Living Proof product. I just got it yesterday when we were at NorthPark. I'll let you know (most likely on Instagram stories) whether or not I like it. Be sure you follow along on Instagram (@sometime_saturday). All three items are linked below.
I’ve been wearing fake lashes this year. For January, I wore these magnetic lashes that last about a month. For February I wanted try a more natural look so I purchased the Ardell natural lashes and this glue that’s used to apply them.
The somewhat tricky part is making the Ardell lashes blend with my blonde eyelashes. I use Maybelline great lash mascara and I just ordered a new eyeliner from Sephora that will help along the lash line.
Have you ever tried to wear fake lashes? Before this year I can only recall wearing them one time. They’re inexpensive and I like how they look. I’m going to keep wearing them, at least for the time being.
I found this exact denim jacket for less/more available sizes : here.
If you already have a denim jacket you adore, I found a similar style in green: here.
I got a new holiday set of mini lipstick and wanted to share the shades I’ve been wearing lately.
Link to shop holiday set (that’s on sale!) : Here
My Mom and I split the set, she has two and I have two. The colors on the left are the two I kept, Coral & Carol (a hot pink with some shimmer) and Garland (a deep purple).
I get so many compliments when I wear Garland on its own. Just yesterday I randomly decided to mix it with a color I already own: Babe
Here’s how it works:
1. Apply Garland from the holiday set
2. Apply a coat of Babe on top
I’m not sure how, but the color seems to get even prettier as the day goes on. It also stays put, which is nice.
Both the holiday set and the single Bobbi Brown lipstick are on sale today. Click on the photos below to shop my lipstick lately.
I have to be honest, I’m not a fan of moisturizer. It’s one of those things that I don’t restock right away. I run out and then I wait to see how long I can go without it.
Thats what I’m doing now. I ran out of my moisturizer months ago. I noticed that my moisturizer of choice is on sale today and wanted to share it with you. I gave in and placed an order for one jar. My skin needs to be happy and healthy again. This winter weather has taken a toll!
Shop the collection on sale : here
These caviar sticks are rated quite highly on several websites. With so many colors to choose from, how does one decide which color is best? Thankfully Laura Mercier released a holiday collection of mini sticks that allows you to try several colors at once. I’ve been wearing Rosegold to work each day this week. I use the Amethyst shade when I want to dial up the drama. This collection would be a cute little stocking stuffer or just a treat for yourself. I’m not sure how long the collection will be available, but I am happy that the collection is available at a discounted price. Just in time for this post. Have a wonderful weekend!
A few months ago I found a few gray hairs and freaked out. I think that’s both an honest and natural reaction. I may have said a few bad words, but I don’t wanna repeat those here. I decided to get some highlights. Something had to be done. Just a little color to hide the fact that I’m over here pushing 80.
One of the fashion bloggers that I follow (@jennifer_alyson on Instagram) has gorgeous hair. The color is amazing and she always has it styled in a way that’s picture perfect. I reached out to Jennifer to ask who does her hair. She gave me the name of her salon and the two ladies who are both responsible for her hair. The name of the salon is Form. I booked an appointment as soon as I could.
Yesterday I lucked out and got a parking spot right out front (this is unheard of in Dallas). The salon was bright, busy, and buzzing. I checked in with the front desk and was given a drink. Shortly after, a lady named Jessiy introduced herself and took me back to her station. She listened carefully as I told her about the gray hairs and how I really wasn’t sure what I wanted. I told her I didn’t want anything drastic. I can’t walk into the office on Monday morning and scare anyone. I need everyone to still recognize me. I also told her I would love to come back in a few months and go even lighter, little by little. She showed me a ton of “after” photos to make sure we were on the same page.
I think it took about an hr to apply everything, and then 30 minutes of sitting while it processed. 15 minutes without heat, and then 15 minutes with heat. After the 30 minutes, Jessiy washed it all out and then applied shampoo and conditioner. Jaclyn took over after that to dry and style my hair. She was so sweet. I made sure to get her business card for the next time I need a blowout.
This was taken moments before my hair appointment.
And this was taken right after. I love it!

First you'll need a dark green sweater:

I am always on the lookout for new hair products. It’s important to use the best of the best which is why I was so excited to receive a couple of Naturigin products in the mail. The All Day Hairspray and a bottle
of Dry Shampoo.
I started using hairpray in middle school for competitive cheerleading. My Mom would roll my hair in foam curlers and I would sleep in them the night before a competition. The right hairspray (and my amazing Mom) made all the difference. I learned back then that hair products matter. They can make or break the look you’re trying to go for. My favorite thing about the All Day Hairspray from Naturigin is that the nozzle does not get clogged. I’m able to use it when I need it, without a delay. My hair still looks soft, which is how I like it to look.
Ive been using the Dry Shampoo for class on Saturday morning and as a texture spray during the week for my roots. I love how dry shampoo can take your hairstyle from the day before and give it life again. Just a little applied at the roots will go a long way.
Here’s the link for the Naturigin website, so you can learn more about the company and browse through the different organic based products that they have.
If you’re interested in trying these products, you can find them for sale at The Vitamin Shoppe.
