what I'm loving, not so much, and OOTD

Nars "Angelika" Lip Gloss

I never thought I'd spend $25 on a tube of lip gloss.  I've always been the girl that thinks there is no difference between drugstore and high-end gloss. 

Nars "Angelika" made me change my mind.  It's heavily pigmented and gives your lips the most perfect, feminine color.  Long-wearing, too.
It's definitely a must have in my makeup bag.

Morracon Oil Light

My hair is super fine, yet I have a good bit of fly-aways.  Heavy creams & gels do not work for me because they weigh my hair down so much.  This lighter version of Moroccan Oil is just perfect because it's not heavy & leaves my hair silky smooth.

I don't follow the directions on the bottle though.  They direct you to use the product on your ends while your hair is still wet.  I find that when I do that, it spreads all throughout my hair amidst all of the brushing during blow drying.  Then, my hair just gets oily!

So instead, I use a heat protectant (Tresemme') while hair is wet, blow dry, then use Moraccan Oil Light SUPER sparingly on the ends of my hair.  That way, the oil stays where it is supposed to be!

I'm loving the cooler temperatures that are supposed to arrive in Clemson, SC this weekend! 

The high is supposed to be around 75 degrees. 
Football is so much more enjoyable when there's a chill in the air, right?

I'm not loving that Brandon is being sent to Nebraska for a business trip.  Also not too happy with the fact that I broke my third Droid screen last night.  I'm not too upset because I'm waiting for the iPhone 5 to arrive at Verizon.  (Definitely will be purchasing an Otterbox, too!)

...and a few OOTDs

LC Lauren Conrad Blazer, Urban Outfitters dress, BCBG wedges
 ...and I thought I'd include this one because this is a basic outfit that I would wear to work on an average day.  Comfortable, yet punched up with a fun accessory.



  1. I haven't tried Moroccan Oil yet but I've heard amazing things! I absolutely love your style! Both of those outfits are adorable :)
