A Round of 5 Favorites

Linking up with Moxie Wife for some 5 Favorites!

1. Have I mentioned that my brother Michael is engaged to like the most amazing gal? Well, he is and Emily is nothing short of Awe-Some! Matt and I (mostly Matt, who titles himself as the Love Doctor) set Michael and Emily up and within 3 dates the rest is history. Emily has the cutest blog and is doing a 30 day in a row blogging stint. You should definitely take a read and I guarantee you will just fall in love with her and her hippie ways. 
2. I have never been a huge fan of Halloween and the dressing up part. Call me boring, because that is exactly what I am. I just find no pleasure in annoying costumes and even less enjoyment with the pains of painting one's face. But, here on the island it is a huge HUGE deal. Everyone decorates with creepy graveyards and witches (which I am sorry if you do that too and I promise I will try my hardest not to judge you if I see this on your front law), but I will never understand how that is considered festive, it's just creepy-creep and morbid to me. Anyways, enough of my rant... my kids SO SO SO love for our house and yard to be as festive as possible for all of the holidays. Soooo... my not very creative thumb and anti-halloween antics have succumb to my littles request. I found this $7 scarecrow from Walmart and couldn't resist the sunflowers in her hair. This weekend we are heading to the pumpkin patch for some more decor, so buckle up for some more cute pics to come.  

3. Now moving on from engagements to decorations to makeup, because I am one of the most random humans on the planet, so why not? If I had to pick my most favorite eye enhancing item, it would be Clinique's quickliner. Why? Because it is exactly what it says- quick at lining the eye. You won't be disappointed in this product says this girl who knows nothing about makeup, so take this rec as you will. 

4. Keeping with the coloring of the eyes, another favorite of mine is this Almay shadow. Why do I like it? Again, because it is easy and purrdy. 

5. Because I am running out of steam, dis here Essie midnight cami nail color is my color of choice for the month. Going dark makes me feel somewhat with the fashion times of 2013. Although, my mom did ask me the other day: "Why do you wear such dark nail polish?" This did kinda make me question my color choice.  But, like all things fashionable and stylish I have gotten use to the simple fact that I am always so last year or the year before.  

Now for some way better 5 favorites join Hallie over at Moxie Wife and the gals!


  1. Aww what a wonderful surprise when I opened your blog! Can't wait to join your family :) And my first link! So sweet of you, my bridesmaid and sister-to-be :)

  2. I totally agree with you on Halloween as well. I just find it annoying. I mean, I have a hard enough time dressing my kids on regular days...forget trying to come up with these creative costumes and all. Ugh. You scarecrow is super cute though..I love the sunflowers in her hair.

  3. I bought navy nail polish and tried to paint my nails last night...it's hard! The dark colors are so unforgiving for mistakes. How the heck do you do it??

  4. Haha, I had my nails painted navy and my dad was questioning me why. Love the cute scarecrow!

  5. I love the dark polish this year! I have that one! And just did the dark purple/maroonish color on my toes :). I agree with you on Halloween, except that making the costumes is fun for me....until Avila throws a fit that her purple mask isn't purple enough :)

  6. I love this one!
    And Emily seems soooo sweet! And I love her blog! I might just have to start following her!
    I always think you are stylish! What to go!
