So I've been missing from the blog for a little while, which I'm going to completely blame on my summer class. It's worse than I thought it would be and although I've had time to blog, I really haven't felt like I've been able to. Surprisingly though I have been taking outfit photos during my absence (with the help of a friend) and wanted to share one of those with you guys today. Since this is a more casual outfit I figured I could go with the more fun photos and didn't have to edit them so they'd be "perfect".
I'm finally sharing with you guys a less casual summer outfit. I wouldn't go quite so far as to call it a formal, or even semi formal but a little more dressed up than what I'd normally wear. When my friend took these photos it was raining, so they're pretty boring (basically the only place on my porch with enough light was four feet wide) but they're actually better than my normal photos. That's because instead of just using my iPhone camera to take the photos, we actually used a DSLR, which made them way better. I'm still debating which one to get for myself, but these photos are clear proof that I need to.
I've been a little absent on the blog lately, except for review for a hair care product. To help get back in the swing of things (I'd love to do daily blog posts again!) I thought today I could talk about makeup. Specifically these Vivd Matt Liquid Lipsticks from the Maybelline Color Sensations collection. I was given them as PR samples thanks to Influenster. I've used them for a few different makeup looks and think it's about time I share all the pros and cons of using them, as well as some liquid lipstick swatches.
I talk about hair a lot. While I wouldn't consider myself as someone with naturally great hair (I'm super jealous of those people that do!) I work hard for my hair. I'm constantly keeping track of how much I dye it, and avoid hot tools and hair styles that are bad for it. Of course this isn't always enough, especially if you're someone with thinning hair. As women get older this hereditary hair loss happens to a lot of us. While there are are a variety of products that deal fight the aging of skin, I hadn't heard of an anti aging hair product, that is until Women's ROGAINE® Foam.
I've been super busy lately. Last year I visited the Marion County Fair but even though I haven't had as much time this summer I decided I had to go. Between eating fair foods and playing games I happened to see a lot of animals so I though I could share photos of them.
