If you know me ,you know i have a big of an addiction to aprons lol. I'm pretty sure i have about 30 and its still growing. In the past year I discovered Dots Diner on etsy and have been addicted ever since . Her aprons are some of the cutest I have ever seen and she is so super sweet as well. The first two are the ones i bought from her and the rest are some of my favorites from her shop. I'm slowly working on collecting more aprons from her shop i always feel so cute and fun when i wear them when i bake lol.

Baby Shower Ideas, Id love your opinions

Me and my friend are throwing our other best friend a baby shower but since she's in Hawaii we have to skype her in but we will have people over at my friends house so we can all skype with her. I am in charge or decorations,desserts, ect basically most of it lol. Here are some pictures via pinterest that are inspiring me I want to do a french/rustic theme but i find myself falling into the french girly thing since I'm a girly girl lol. The problem is my friend who is having the baby is more of a natural colors type of girl. P.s shes having a girl lol. What do you guys think? I can make baby cookies and cupcakes but I'm really a stranger to the baby world so any input would be great . I'll be posting everything on here after the shower so you can all check it out and see how it went lol.

Lipstick Lover, The love hate relationship






I love lipstick as you can see above in my profile picture, note to self i need to take more pictures of myself and not my cookies lol . I have a love /hate relationship with it though, I don't wear it everyday but when i do wear it i end up taking it off sometime while I'm out. For some reason it makes me feel like i don't know what to do with my lips if that makes any sense . I have made it a goal to start keeping it on as long as possible lol . I have seen alot of articles from men's magazines about how men hate when women wear bright lipstick or lip gloss. I am lucky enough to have a boyfriend who likes it but i say who cares! If you feel better ,wear it! I have heard for people with fair skin like myself that an orange tinted red is the best but i don't agree i hate red/orange lipsticks this bright red is retrofuturist by lime crime and I love it. I also live by the rule that you have to pick dramatic lips or dramatic eyes, unlike most of the tacky makeup you seen in NJ . If your going to wear a bold lipstick wear a natural color eye, if your going to wear a bold eyeshadow look wear a neutral color lip. I did freelance makeup for about two years and learned alot during that time. I'm no celebrity makeup artist and these are all my opinions .



My other favorite brand is NARS and my two favorite colors in my bag at Barbarella which is a peach nude color i like to put NARS striptease gloss over it and my favorite bright pink is schiap. Schiap can be found on sephora.com I was told they didn't make it anymore but i think i was lied to since its online lol .




Above Nars schiap below Nars barbarella



What is your go to favorite lipstick color? What color would you love to try but aren't daring enough to?
