Whether you are spending your weekend cleaning out your x-wing or shopping at a market on Naboo, comfort is key!
What I am wearing: Star Wars graphic t-shirt from Kohl’s, Flannel is a hand me down from my Mom (not sure where she found it!), leggings are from Cotton On and my Millennium Falcon chocker is from Love and Madness (I found mine at GameStop.)
I also decided to do very minimal makeup (which is what I usually prefer to do on the weekends if I don’t have major plans.) I am wearing MakeupForever HD Liquid foundation, Kat Von D tattoo eyeliner and Kat Von D blush in Bonnie and Clyde.
Guess what?! It is FINALLY nesting season! The leaves are falling, the days are shorter and the weather is cooler. To make the most out of this beautiful time of year and to live up to your coziest potential, here are my four easy steps on how you can level up your lazy days and have the comfiest fall yet!
- Stock up on all the fluff. Pile on the blankets, pillows and all things soft and comfy. If you can burrow yourself into a human sized cocoon, then you are doing it right.
- Light some candles and set the mood. If the scent has anything to do with pumpkins, apples, or “leaves”- BUY IT AND BURN IT. Once your house smells like a Yankee candle store, you are are ready for the next step. (pro candle hoarder tip: shop for Bath and Body Works candles ONLY when you have a coupon and/or they are on sale. They are half off or $10 off every few weeks! I like to stock pile my favorites scents since I always have candles burning.)
- Brew some kind of hot beverage. Usually I reach for coffee or tea but I am also a fan of hot chocolate with EXTRA marshmallows.
- Find a good book that you can get completely lost in. Currently, I am reading Outlander by: Diana Gabaldon but anything that can transport you into another world is a great start. If books aren’t you thing, try binge watching anything British (this is a VERY important detail.) I would Downton Abbey, Poldark, Sherlock, Outlander, Game of Thrones- or basically anything BBC or Masterpiece Classic.
I promise if you follow these steps you will enjoy every lazy minute and never want to leave your blanket cocoon!
(Note: These steps can also be used in the winter, especially on a snow day.)
Happy fall everyone! This is my FAVORITE time of the year. I love the colors and was inspired by the rich burgundy of fall for this look.
I also wanted to share with you my new favorite foundation- Makeup Forever’s Ultra HD Liquid foundation! I was sent this to review by Influenster and I couldn’t be happier with this product.
Hello friends! I wanted to share with you this super easy and very inexpensive Harry Potter inspired wine glass craft.
Let me know if you give it a try! I would love to see your finished product🙂
I have been hearing about Espionage Cosmetics for ages, and FINALLY placed an order and thought I would share what I received!
One of my fellow Geek Girl Brunch officers is always raving about the “Nailed It” stickers so I knew I they would be first on my list.
4 packs later…
I am really excited to give these a try! Especially the bats. They are so cute and the wrap is a clear background so I can place them over top of any color I choose. I also like that they work differently than other nail wraps that require heat. They work just like a sticker!
I also ordered a loose shadow in the color, “Manifestation” and a “Kiss of Death” lip serum in the color “Soulless.” I tried on the lip serum and I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t a sticky lipgloss (which is the absolute worst.) It is as more of a lip balm and went on clear. The shadow is a soft grayish white and I think with a great primer it will be perfect!
I am so excited to give these new geeky cosmetics a try! I will keep you updated and may post a video on how I use the nail wraps.
