Anastasia Beverly Hills: See and Be Seen

I was beyond excited the other day when I opened up my mailbox and there was a huge goodie box full of Anastasia Beverly Hills products. Their See & Be Seen kit will be arriving to Sephora and this May (retailing at $44, with an $80 value). I'm so thankful that my friends at ABH sent this preview over to me so I can share it with all of my readers. This fantastic kit includes:

  • 2 HydraFull Gloss colors in Heiress and Plastic
  • Caramel tinted Brow Gel
  • ILLUMIN8 Shadow duo in On Set 

What I loved most about this kit was the way they promoted it...with a 3D Viewmaster! This made me instantly smile. Such brilliant marketing...don't you think??? Here are some pictures of me acting silly with the Viewmaster while rocking the HydraFull Gloss in Heiress and in Plastic.

They also sent over some more Lash Genius...which I am now obsessed with. You may remember me talking about Lash Genius recently. You simply put a top coat of Lash Genius over your regular mascara...and it instantly waterproofs your lashes without drying. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! Below is a Lash Genius tutorial from Anastasia that explains this product in more details.

Disclosure: Product samples were provided by PR but does not affect my review or opinions in any way.

Saturday Shower

As I told you all yesterday I took a little road trip with my mother to Lambertville, New Jersey for my dear friend Kelleny's baby shower. Her sister, Sulyn, threw her a lovely party at her home. It was so nice to spend the day there with everyone. I don't get to see Kell too often anymore since she lives in North Carolina now. But we had an afternoon filled with amazing food, fun games, and cute baby gifts. A great time was had by all.

Afterwards a bunch of us went for a walk from Lambertville, NJ to New Hope, PA (I never have walked from one state to another...have you?). Two adorable towns within minutes of each other.

Here are just a few pictures from the day...

Kell with her cousin, aunt, mother, and sister.

Here we are standing on a bridge between NJ & PA.

What I'm wearing
legging tights: ?
shoes: Old Navy
necklace: Urban Outfitters
purse: Deena & Ozzy
denim jacket: Highway Jeans c/o Body Central

Isn't the mommy-to-be just glowing?!?! I can't believe baby Elena will be here next month!

Speaking of Elena...we went to one store while walking around New Hope, PA and at that very store we randomly came across Elena pasta! If that isn't a sign, I don't know what is! HAHAHA!

Friday Florals

Okay...say it with me: THE WEEKEND IS HERE! Woohoo! I'm super excited for a number of reasons:

1) The weather here in Pennsylvania is going to be fantastic. Sunny and in the 70's and 80s. I have to admit, I am a little sad that we didn't get any rain this past week...because my allergies are out of control. Hopefully all the sunshine will be a nice distraction from my sneezing and itchy eyes/throat.

2) Tomorrow morning my mom and I will be heading to New Jersey for a baby shower. My friend Kelleny who I have known since I was 12 is going to have a baby girl next month. So exciting! She is flying in from North Carolina as we speak to her sister's place in New Jersey. Should be a fun time since I don't get to see her too often (even though I did just see her a few weeks ago when we went to NC to visit).

3) I bought some really pretty flowers that we have to add to our flower gardens. We're still working (slowly) on landscaping our house...but I really love seeing all the flowers blooming. It really makes me smile since I don't exactly have a green thumb.

jacket- H&M
dress- H&M
tights- H&M
shoes- Deena & Ozzy

I call this photo my wedding day floral pose. Hahaha! Could this picture look more awkward and stiff? Supermodel I am not.

Happy Easter

I hope you all are having a great Easter weekend. What are your plans? Today my husband, pup, and I are heading to my parents' house for a less than traditional Easter dinner: steaks on the grill. YUMMMM!!! So much better than ham or lamb...right? My thoughts exactly.  :-)

Check out this hilarious picture I came across of my brother and I. It's from 1985...I'm four, and my brother is two. I really think it's funny because my nephew looks exactly like my brother here. Also, if carrots are good for your eyes, why does this Easter Bunny wear glasses???

Nicole Loves Yellow

Lately it seems as though every time I see a photo of Nicole Richie she is wearing a stunning yellow dress. This color is definitely one that looks fantastic on her. Don't you think so?

Winter Kate

Julien Macdonald



Which yellow dress is your favorite on Nicole? I think the short and ruffled Keepsake dress is my favorite. It's so fun and flirty...perfect for Nicole!
