This past weekend I made my way to the Cosmetic Company Outlet (CCO) near me and I was so happy to find MAC's Morning Frost paint pot from the Glitter and Ice collection! It is a shimmering champagne taupe color. Paint pots can be used as a base or as an all over lid color. It's like a cream eyeshadow and lasts all day. I tried to pick up the color in the picture that I took, but it still doesn't do it justice. Highly recommend it if you can get your hands on it since it's not available on the website anymore. I also got it for $12 instead of $19!

I also picked up a new coral blush at the MAC counter for the spring time and decided on Style. I had heard awesome reviews about this product and the lady at the counter said it would be a perfect shade for me. It is a coral-peach with gold pearl frost, but doesn't come off shimmery or glittery which I was worried about! Applies easily and definitely has staying power. With a tan it makes an instant glow and I have been using it every day since I got it. Around $20 and well worth it! I was also thinking about picking up MAC's Fleur Power next, any thoughts or suggestions?!

light up the night

The majority of items in my apartment are from HomeGoods, which would have to be one of my favorite home decor stores. Very affordable and well made furniture, wall art, bedding, you name it they practically have it all. From antiques to modern art, the possibilities are endless in this store.

One of my most recent finds is a vintage shutter that is a distressed gray color. I bought it for around $35. I also added a string of white lights around it and at night time it looks amazing!

I also featured it on the HomeGoods website if you'd like to take a look! http://www.homegoods.com/finds/2012/02/27/new-customer-find-by-lexi-kay/

breakfast at tiffanys

Turquoise and Caicos by Essie has always been one of my go to nail colors. It comes off as a deep Tiffany teal, but photographs much brighter with the flash on. Takes about three coats and is definitely a must for spring!

it's about time!

I've had this blog for awhile now and have finally decided it's about time to get it up and running! If you are randomly coming across this blog, here's a little bit about myself. I'm a 21 year old college student living in the Sunshine State. Currently majoring in Psychology and Criminal Justice with a minor in Behavioral Forensics. Fashion, photography, and traveling would have to be three of my favorite things in life. Pretty much what this blog is going to consist of! In my spare time you can find me horseback riding, writing, at the beach, just livin' life. As for the name of my blog, I pretty much live in denim. So click that little button on the left and follow me! :)
