Easy Everyday Contouring and Highlighting

Contouring and highlighting has been a huge makeup trend in recent years, and with good reason - you can use concealer to achieve more defined cheek bones, to make your lips look bigger, and my personal favorite - to hide a double chin.

A Pumpkin Harvest Table Setting


I love to use natural elements on a dinner table, especially around the holidays. For fall, that includes pine cones, pumpkins, and squash.
