Hello! Over the weekend I attended my brothers friends wedding at a cute little place called The Ribbon Mill (Website HERE) If you are in the Carlisle area and want a quaint adorable place, this really is lovely. It is an old building, brick walls, wood floors. It is just such a cute place.
Her color scheme was really pretty as well, different shades of green and cream with the burlap, was a very cozy, rustic style wedding.
It was my brother friend, so I went as their date. We had a great group of people at our table as well. Could not have asked for a better time at a wedding. Here are some photos of the fun times, my makeup, and my outfit.
On my face
Nars sheer glow foundation, Rimmel stay matte powder, Milani baked blush, two-faced chocolate bronzer for contour, Maybelline concealer
eyes: lorac primer, naked 1 palette (sin, toasted, hustle, and virgin) Nyx gel liner, calvin klein mascara. brows-anastasia brow pencil. Lashes-ardell wispies
lips: Mac liner in Whirl and mac lipstick in Myth
set my face with urdan decay all nighter spray.
(I love retrica for editing photos and if you notice my eye looks pink, it is because it is. Allergies= me scratching them=red haha)
My dress is the floral mesh lace dress. They still carry on the free people website, although this color(navy) is sold out. HERE are the available colors on the website. If you are like me though, I hate paying full price for things and can usually find them cheaper. I actually got mine off ebay for around $50.
Of course my wonderful brothers and great people we shared a table with for the evening. We are quite the group haha!!
25% OFF for the cartoons apparels!
Hurry up to start your new purchase on Sheinside!!!
This is a super cute promo, all items are cartoons! The cat shirts are my favorite by far, but I don’t think you can ever go wrong in a Micky sweater! Sheinside rarely disappoints me though (unless it doesn’t fit :() Anyhoo, check it out! :) Maybe you’ll find something cute with an old favorite cartoon you used to or currently watch!
Hello Everyone! This weekend was the annual Apple Festival at Little Buffalo State Park and of course, I have to go every year! Free samples of apple cider, warm apple butter, and different flavors or corn bread (pumpkin was AMAZING) Apart from that, they have a booth that sells hot soups, hot dogs/sausages, cider and other items. Also a table with baked goods. I ended up going home with a jar of apple butter, Apple crisp, and of course pumpkin pie. The chicken corn soup was amazing as well!
My wonderful friends Jackie and Vickie went along as well. I loved all the little old ladies asking if I knit my own scarf and loving the purple hair. So sweet :)
It really is not a huge festival, more like a small gathering with some munchies and music. I still love it though, especially with all the leaves on the ground and some good company, and a great location close to home. It is a great way to start off Fall!
The lady friends also have blogs as well. :) check them out
Vickie is the blonde: Eviedoes
Jackie is the redhead: Jaysnowie
I really love this season, more than any other season. Especially on rainy days like today, all I want is a warm comfortable bed, maybe a fireplace (although it is a tad warm here for that at the moment) Some chai tea or delicious warm beverage, perhaps some snacks that have a spice to them.
Even just hanging out indoors with friends, doing some fall pumpkin painting or carving. I wish there was fall music, kind of like Christmas music but for Halloween (although Nightmare before Christmas soundtrack should do just fine) Or if you want to mellow it down, perhaps some mellow do-wop would do the trick, or some soul music. Maybe even jazz, or classical, whatever suits your fancy.
How about a fall picnic? Load up the car, blankets, wine, cheeses, fruits, and crackers, and drive to the nearest park (if it is far, then you get a bonus colorful road trip) .
I am super excited for this weekend. (Jackie comes home!!). It is also the annual Apple festival at Little Buffalo State park, so of course some girlfriends and I will be attending. They have delicious corn soup, deserts, free samples of cider and fresh warm apple butter they churn in the Old mill. I plan to take my camera and photograph the event so stay tuned for that. Countown 3 days-jackie 4 days-apple festival, then the following weekend Gettysburg trip!!!! Happy Fall season to everyone!!!

Hello! Happy Tuesday. This is one of those weeks that are draaaagggiinnnggg. My wonderful friend Jackie (her blog Here) is coming to visit from Colorado and I am super excited. So many fall plans. I am hoping we can figure out how to put together some kind of Fall Lookbook or video of some sort anyway. Maybe even a Halloween tutorial. (No hints yet to what I will be, all I will say is that its in the making)
Ok, so what this post is actually about, not me rambling about my excitement… Look Fantastic Beauty box. The website has TONS of products, but I like the beauty boxes (I like being surprised) The box they have is $25. I think it was a great deal for everything I got. The box does sell out fast though, and I had to wait quite a while for mine (almost a month). It didn’t bother me though, not like I was in desperate need for products haha :) So here is what it included and I have tried all so I included my opinion of them:
Loreal pro-keratin shampoo & conditioning treatment- smells good, works pretty good. I did notice it felt like my hair was little bit like it had build up.
KMS California – quick blow dry spray- I really never tried a quick dry spray, but, I actually really liked this and it did seem like I did not need to blow dry as long :)
Balance me- face line filler- I used under makeup and it worked well. I didn’t see any miracles but it did the job acting as a primer.
Gatineau Paris- Collegene Expert- I really liked this. I have very oily skin and it seems every thing makes me oily, this did not, and was very smooth.
Korres- Citrus Shower gel- This was, different. It works great, and smells great…Smells great as in kind of musky and manly, but I don’t know about any other ladies but sometimes I kind of like that manly scent once in a while. It is great for fall though, and if you want to feel woodsy haha.
Sleep plus- pillow spray- Of course this smells like lavender, Which is the well known scent for sleep and relaxation. It smells amazing on my pillow. I didn’t really notice a difference in how I slept, but it relaxed me for sure.
So all together, I did like all the products. The only one I wasn’t thrilled with was the loreal hair products but my hair is finicky so that did not surprise me. It may just be me as well, not saying your hair wouldn’t love it. Everyone has different hair types. :)
Here is the LookFantastic website. There are soo many products on the site. I will be repurchasing another box though for sure. :)
