8 Fall 2013 Makeup Trends {Part 2}

31 Days of Fall Fashion & Beauty Tips
Hello! It’s Day 5 of 31 Days Of Fall Fashion & Beauty Tips! Yesterday I shared four of the 8 Fall 2013 Makeup Trends, so today I’ll share the rest of them with you. Let’s get started!

5. Pink or peach blush-This is a look I can go with! Soft pink and peach blushes seem to be the trend. So ditch those brown and dark blushes for a pink or peach.

A pretty blush that is perfect for fall! There are several colors to choose from.

6. The Cat Eye- Look how cute she looks with the cat eye. I’m afraid my line would be uneven because I would be trying to dodge all those pesky fine lines! :-)

This is on my list of things to purchase! This eyeliner gel gets great reviews!! I would purchase a brown color, not black.

7. The Smokey Eye- Oh boy I cannot pull this look off! I look like I’ve got dark circles for miles when I try this. But if you can do it, go for it!

8. Orangey Eye Shadow- I kind of like this look. If I add a touch of orangey eye shadow, I might could pull this off. Remember if you’re over 40, be careful about adding too much color to your eyes. Neutrals seem to work best for our age. Also don’t try to match your eye shadow to your outfit. Matchy Matchy is old lady (yikes, did I just say that?)

Alrighty, that’s the rest of the makeup trends. Of course, there are some I left out like glitter eyes and lines drawn in strange places but they’re way too out there.

What do you think about these looks? Can you pull off the smokey eye?

Some of you have emailed me about good brushes. This set has good reviews and is a pretty good price so I thought I’d share it with you. (click on the picture and it will take you to Sephora.)

Tie It Together Thursday

Tie It Together Thursday

Hi there! It’s Tie It Together and Thursday. I picked a pair of pants that I love from Ann Taylor and decided to style it the way I would want to wear it.

These are tweed ankle pants and they are perfect for fall. Blue and navy is a great combination!

I added an oversized sweater from JCrew.

If you want you could add a cute belt like this one from Target.

Here are the rest of the items I added to the tweed ankle pants. Big geometric earrings from Baublebar, Ashika Chain Ballet flats from Zappo’s, and satchel by Michael Kors. FYI, I don’t own a Michael Kors handbag but I feel if I keep adding it to my posts, my husband may someday get the hint and get me one! Ha!

Cooler weather is heading our way so I’m hoping to start wearing some fall fashion soon!

What do you think about the outfit? Blue is a hot color trend for fall this year. Have you added it to your wardrobe yet?

8 Fall Outfits To Inspire You!

Happy Labor day! Isn’t it great to have a day off from work (I’m hoping you have the day off)? Of course, even though I’m home today there’s lots of work I need to do around my house. Yuck!

I’m going to do some organizing and cleaning and then we’re headed to a birthday party for my Dad. I thought I’d share some fall fashion inspiration with you today. I would love to add similar looks to my fall wardrobe.

Here are 8 Fall Outfits To Inspire You. These are some of the hottest trends of the season!

This is from Ann Taylor and like the navy and black combination. I also like the oversized handbag.


This is also from Ann Taylor and of course I love that animal print skirt.


One of the hot trends this fall is the houndstooth print. I love, love, love it!! This outfit is from Banana Republic.


I picked this top because of the faux leather on the shoulder. Leather is a hot trend but I probably won’t be sporting all leather pants but I could definitely pop it on my shoulders. (I’m not sure where I found this.)

The military look is “in” and I’d love to add a blazer like this to my fall wardrobe. (I’m not sure where I found this jacket.)


Stripes are still popping up everywhere and this dress is adorable. This is from White House Black Market.


We’ve talked about burgundy being a hot color for fall but teal seems to be another must-have color this fall. This outfit is from White House Black Market also.


Oh my, I love lace! This is a trend I could really get use to. This top is from Ann Taylor.


I love most of the fall trends this season. They still seem to have a very feminine look, which I like.

Which of these trends inspire you the most? Have you picked any of them up?

Favorite “PINS” Friday!

Happy holiday weekend! What?? Labor day weekend? Where did the summer months go? Since we’re heading into September my “PINS” are all fallish.


I’m sorry for the overload of animal print but I just couldn’t help myself. I lurve it!! :-)

We have a lot of birthdays in September so we’re celebrating two of them over the holiday weekend. It’s Colt Allen’s 2nd birthday so we’re celebrating his birthday on Saturday and on Monday we’re celebrating my Dad’s birthday. I love family get togethers!

What are your plans this weekend? Do you have Monday off?

Beauty For the Heart~~I was reading this morning in the book of John about Jesus washing the disciples feet. I was reminded how we as christians are called to serve. I’m praying I will have a servant’s heart!

“You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.” Galatians 5:13

Have a blessed day!

5 Fabulous Fall Fashion Trends

5 Fabulous fall fashion trends

I’ve been looking at a lot of fall fashion over the last several weeks and I’ve found some items that I reeeeeeeally need want. These are my 5 fabulous fall trends that I’m going to try to purchase over the next several months.

All of these items are from Banana Republic and if I had the money, I’d walk in and buy them today. But that’s not going to happen. I might get one or two at Banana Republic, if I can find them on sale. More than likely, I’ll be shopping at TJ Maxx and Marshall’s and looking for items that are similar but at a much better price.

I’ve seen these animal print coats at several stores and I love them. If I don’t purchase it myself, I’ll add it to my Christmas list. In other words, I’ll buy it, wrap it, put it under the tree and put a gift tag on it that says, “To Cyndi, From Wayne”.

Leopard Print Coat

Short boots are everywhere too and I really like this style. I know some of you have said you don’t like them, but they’re growing one me.

Black bootie

Pointed toe flats are back and I’m wanting a pair of them. I love this classic look!

pointed toe flats

I love a blazer and this large striped one is adorable! I like the whole look of this outfit and would love to copy it.

Green striped blazer

Okay, I know it’s more animal print but can a girl have too much of it? I think not.

What do you think about these fall fashion trends? Which ones are your favorite?

Did you see my video of my favorite beauty products I’ve been using this summer? If you missed it, you can go here.

Beauty For the Heart~~I found this quote in one of my Mom’s Bible’s. “There is no nobler occupation upon earth, no higher calling than that of being a mother, a true mother.”  She didn’t have the author of the quote written down. The quote made me smile, she was such an incredible mother and I miss her so much!

Have a blessed day!

5 Tips to Update Your Fall Wardrobe


I love this time of year! The leaves are just beginning to turn and the air seems to have a different feel.

With the start of September (which is this Saturday!) we begin to have some cooler days and that means we start pulling out our fall clothes. This is a great time to start looking at what you already have and then begin to add some key pieces to help update your fall wardrobe.

Being fashionable can be fun and easy when you know what to shop for. This fall is full of color and accessories that can help us all look our best!

Here are 5 tips to help you update your fall wardrobe:

Build on the basics. Every woman should have a black and white tank top, a black and white tee-shirt, a black turtleneck, black pants, a white button-down shirt and a little black dress. These items are always in fashion and can be used as the basics for building your fall wardrobe.

If you have a limited budget, spend it on accessories. Accessories can really update a look. A skinny belt around a bulky sweater creates a whole different look. Add a chunky necklace, an eye catching ring or bangle bracelets. Accessories can turn something blah into something fabulous!

Animal prints are still hot. You can play it safe by mixing them with a solid color, or take a little risk and mix it up with a complimentary print. Adding animal print to your fall wardrobe is a quick and easy update.

Scarfs are my favorite accessory for fall. Not only do they look great but as colder weather approaches they help to keep you warm. There are lots of styles to choose from and lots of ways to tie them around your neck. Scarfs help add color to the gray and black that’s so prevalent this time of year.


Boots are a fall favorite! High-heels or flats, short or tall, boots are everywhere this season. Boots can be worn with dresses and jeans and will make any outfit look amazing!
