Things I love: Summer Essentials

Stilleto Hardware - perfect for weddings or long nights out on the town, best heel pads I have tried.
Essie Tart Deco- totally obsessed with this orangey color.
Maybelline Stylish Smokes-Perfect for the makeup challenged like me, I love how it tells you where to put the colors and the liner is my fave perfect for smokey eyes.
CVS Exfoliating Nail Squares-these have changed my life, I used to hate taking off nail polish these remove it in seconds.
Dr. Perrcione MD Cold Plasma {gifted}-keeping me looking young as I enjoy my last year in my 20's
Show Stoppers{gifted}-keep those pesky dresses and sleeves in place. Also perfect when you're in the mood to be a bra-less wonder these summer nights ;)
LF Stores Sparkly Hair Ties-Need I say more?!
Clinique High Impact Mascara-Big fat brish for long and clump-less lashes -- perfection!
Revision Intellishade SPF45 Matte{gifted} tinted Moisturizer for all types - has officially replaced Bare Essentials for me. But you can through some on top for extra coverage, although I tend to keep it minimal especially during the summertime.
Ms manicure Pocket pal and Best in Toe Kit-perfect for inbetween mani/pedi sesh's. c/o Confessions of A Navy Wife

{making of a blog post}
check out videos of me making this post:


  1. I just got some of those stiletto hardware pads and I love them.
    Question, what lens do you have in your camera?

  2. For that picture i used a 17-40mm =)

  3. Have you seen Loreal's one-sweep smokey eye shadows?
    In google-ing, it would seem the reviews aren't that great, but I absolutely love it. (Then again, I'm completely and utterly makeup-challeneged, so maybe that's why.)

  4. Crap, I didn't post a clickable link. Try this.

  5. That essie nailpolish looks good!!

  6. Stiletto Hardware just sent me some of those heel pads and I love them! I wore them in my heels for my friend's wedding last week and lasted all day/night with no problems!

    I, too, am also completely obsessed with Essie's Tart Deco! It is the perfect coral shade for summer!

  7. Whoa Amanda i have not seen though and that pretty crazy! I'm sure I would even mess that up ha!
