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. And despite all of the intricate tutorials out there, I want to show you that it can actually be quick an easy!

The first trick is to start with the right concealer shades. First, let’s get one thing straight: when I say highlighter, I do not mean the super light and shimmery highlighter that should only be reserved for above the cheekbones. I’ve seen all too many makeup vloggers apply that all over, from the forehead to the tip of the nose, to the cupid’s bow and the chin.

Editor's Picks: Cozy Ornaments


Whether you're the type of person who is a firm believer in putting the tree up after Thanksgiving, or the kind who has it up weeks before; it's a great time to start shopping around for ornaments.

But this year, we're blended, celebrating our first Christmas as a family. Last year was our first Christmas together, but this year, it's the first one all together in the same home, so we plan to add on several new things and look forward to making new memories each year going forward.

Plaid Sparkle Ball Ornament


Plaid Sparkle Ball Ornament

This past weekend we bought a few new ones from Pottery Barn, including this Christmas sweater ornament and a pretty paid ones pictured above. I also have several clear ball ornaments that I'm going to fill with the rose petals I saved from the bouquet he gave me on our second date.💓🌝 Pictured: Pottery Barn Fair Isle Christmas Sweater Ornament  //  Pottery Barn Plaid Sparkle Ball Ornament

Ken and I both seem to gravitate towards a good mix of traditional and modern when it comes to Christmas decor. We both like some sparkle, we both like plaid, and we both like traditional as well as fun new pieces. Pottery Barn and Target tend to have holiday decorations that we both love, and of course there are plenty of these items on Amazon as well.
