Hey y’all! Life has been crazy but I wanted to hop on and share this with y’all when I had a moment! I have a lot of y’all asking about the wedding, it was such a blast and I’ll be working on a blog post ALL about it soon!
I tried to upload this a few days ago but the sight crashed and I’m just getting around to it! This set fit true to size and I am wearing a size Med.
Happy Tuesday y’all!! I have been wanting to do this post for a while but haven’t gotten around to it! I get questions about makeup a good but which is funny because I literally have NO CLUE what I’m doing or the right way to do it! I do a pretty basic makeup job but I guess it gets the job done and works for me so that’s all that matters right haha!
Listing my every day things below with a description, but before we get there I also wanted to take a second to talk about a local makeup line that I love! Ashley Sievert Beauty is a line created by one of Nola’s very own! Ashley has had her business for a while now and she truly delivers a great product + she is super sweet and will help you out with absolutely anything, from helping you find your right shade to telling you where she found her swimsuit! She is a gem!
I use a number of her products that I will list below & im filling you in on all this because her annual sale starts TODAY! The sale is in studio April 30 – May 2 (10-4:30) and the online sale will be May 3-8. Her studio is located at 3331 Severn Ave. Suite 204 , Metairie, LA 70002. Products will be 25% – 50% off, aka this is an amazing time to stock up! You will not regret!!
Okay, let’s get started! By the way – I’m not listing thing in any particular order, just listing all my favorites!
I put a dab of this under both eyes and use my finger or pouf to pat it out! this stuff is ABSOLUTELY MY FAVORITE MAKEUP PRODUCT! This under your eyes goes a long way, it gives you a bright and awake look, something that I think makes you look younger in a sense! This goes last after I have done all my makeup!
THIS, has changed the way highlighters work for me! As I said I’m not a makeup pro so I like easy! I use this in the tip of my nose sometimes and LOVE it to highlight my cheek bone! It’s the first thing that made that easy for me! I put a dab on my finger and dab it out over the cheekbone! It makes it feel like I don’t have to worry about blending it, if that makes sense!
ASB brushes feel amazing! They are so soft and not packed to be super hard like most brushes I try! After using her brushes I will never use another!
– Other Makeup –
A word on some items in the slider above. The brow wiz brow pencil makes it so easy for someone not the best at make up (like me) to apply brows! The pencil is double sided so I usually fill in and use the brush to brush out for a more natural look! The illuminating spf and primer I mix in with my foundation for a more glowy look!
wedding planning has been a killer, but there’s two things that have MAJORLY helped more than you’d think!
One is a DYI and one is simply a website, one that you can use more than just for wedding planning too!
If you’ve followed a long for a minute you know I’m into dream boards. I put together and inspo board for my wedding to be able to lay everything out together to see what it looked like & if it flowed! I printed out things I pinned, pictures of my venue, pictures of what I wanted my flowers on the tables to look like & things we were renting! I cut them out and pasted them on a poster board!! That’s it, instant inspo board! It was just nice to be able to see everything together and made me feel more relieved!
The next thing was this amazing website POSTABLE they give you a link to text your friends and they click the link, write their contact info and you immediately have an address specifically for your special day! This helped tremendously because how many times do you need peoples addresses? It was also cool because we could import them to a spread sheet to do head counts or to have lists printed out if we needed!
Obviously the POSTABLE website can be used for more than just wedding stuff! This can be helpful for everyday use with addresses and what not!
Hey y’all! I recently found THE BEST pair of flares and I’m linking them here for y’all today! I’m a huge fan of flares and love when I find an awesome pair!
These are a little bit more of a splurge but they are TOTALLY worth it! The way they are made will be long lasting & the flare is not obnoxious, it’s more of a classic flare to me! They are also very high waisted which = super flattering & have some stretch to them!
Incase your wondering who took the cookie from the apothecary jar, it was me 🍪 😜 anyone else have apothecary jars all over their house? It’s my favorite way to fill up some empty space! they are perfect for the kitchen, bathroom or even some built ins! I’m sure you can guess what my favorite thing to put in them in the kitchen is – this girls weakness is a good cookie! linking a bunch of affordable sets here for y’all (most come in sets of 3) and I thought it would be fun to tell you guys what I normally fill mine with!
Most of the time in the kitchen I round stack my big jar with Oreos, and put candy or something with the season in the smaller one. In the bathroom I fill them with bath salts, bath bombs, soaps & natural bath sponges! I change out my Oreos for a lighter cookie, the oatmeal feels more summery, I know that sounds crazy… I kinda am!
The things you fill them with are mostly for show, so they don’t have to be expensive! Honestly, I have to keep peoples hands out of the jar because my Oreos have been in there for like 4 months lol!!! I have to tell people omg those are for show don’t eat them!!! Haha! Because of that, I normally buy the cheaper cookies, no ones really eating them!
Hey y’all! Incase you haven’t got the memo yet, hair accessories are BIG this summer! I love these little scrunchies with the rabbit ears because it gives the illusion of a scarf tied! They are so cute with a regular ponytail, half up half down, or even an top knot! You can get a ton of colors for pretty cheap! Linking my exact pack below and tagging others in the slider underneath, as well as some other hair accessories!
Hair accessories are a great way to add fun / spice up a outfit! They feel weird at first and they might be out of your comfort zone, but trust me, every time I run around with something fun in my hair I get tons of compliments! Just something different to add!
Decorating my table for holidays is one of my favorite things to do! Sharing this years look with you guys and a few other cute Easter decorations! Everything is on sale right now so grab it while you can!! Some of my stuff is on prime so it will definitely get to you before Easter!
I’m also tagging my Easter wreaths because I found them online as well!!
p.s. – I have used these little wreaths on my plates for years, so they are something you can use time and time again!
I’m pressed for time, so just linking everything in the sliders below!

Let me know if y’all have anything I can help y’all with!
Hey y’all! Happy Wednesday! Finally posting the details of my outfit from my bridal brunch!!
My sweet friends & momma threw me a fabulous little brunch last Sunday, and it was absolutely perfect! Things with this wedding have been anything but traditional, I told everyone we really didn’t want any party’s or anything like that! We have so much stuff between the two of us, we don’t really need anything else & honestly sometimes all those party’s can be so stressful! The girls throwing me this little bunch was perfect, it was intimate, no fuss & low key! I am extremely appreciative of my “bridesmaids” they have stood by me in all seasons of my life and their constant friendship means the world to me! Also so thankful for each and every one of these girls in my pictures (family & friends) ! They all bring different things into my life & I am so lucky to have their friendship & love!
Anyway, I got a lot of questions about my dress + my hair/makeup!
I curled my hair & my mom pinned it up for me, we both work at H2O Salon & Spa on Metairie road if anyone wants their hair done! Pahaha! My makeup was done by Rita who owns luxury beauty clinic! Click her name and it’ll take you to her page!
Both of these are more pricey than things you’d normally see me list, but it was a special occasion. More so the dress, the shoes are classic and I know I will/have already gotten a lot of use out of them!
