Tooth Necklace

It's been months since I last posted and my life has been occupied with dental school and wedding planning! 

The other day I found this tooth necklace on Etsy and fell in love! It is so adorable and I think that it is so cute that there are multiple teeth represented on it! I am thinking that most people might find it creepy, BUT since I want to be a dentist I decided that it is probably ok if I wear something like this.

Fall Makeup - Cheeks and Lips

As the leaves change inevitably so do the contents of my makeup bag.  No longer do I reach for my "Sugarbomb" blush and "Clementine" I am all about my new "Honey Mocha" blush (here) and my "Black Orchid" creme lipstick, both Laura Mercier. Summertime makeup is minimal, dewey, and non-fussy.  Fall makeup is richer and definitely more dramatic! Oxblood lipstick is a surprisingly easy trend to pull off! I have tried many on and definitely recommend the "Black Orchid" color (here) for a really subtle hint of oxblood or the "Merlot" color from the Dark Spell collection (here) for something slightly more intense.

Let's Talk about eyebrows

Lily collins who in magazines has been called the new "IT girl" is my eyebrow envy. Trying to grow out brows is a little like growing out bangs...awkward. I'm working on mine and wouldn't be able to get through it without my new trusty eyebrows pencil by my favorite Laura Mercier. My advice: as tempting as it is DON'T over pluck! Good luck!

Funny Friday

Here are two funny videos to start off your weekend...Jimmy Fallon is just the best! Have a fabulous Friday everyone!

The Proposal (I'm ENGAGED!)

I am so excited to be able to say that I am engaged to Dan! I am so blessed to have him in my life, I know that being with him will mean that everyday I will laugh and smile.  

He recently surprised me in Santa Barbara, dropped to his knee on Butterfly Beach and proposed.  The entire evening was completely magical and one of the best nights of my life!  He invited my family, his family and some of our close friends.  After he proposed (and I said YES!!!) we went to the Biltmore for a champagne toast and delicious appetizers and then everyone migrated to the restaurant we had out first date for an amazing dinner! Then to top it all off there was a party at my sister's house with melt in your mouth cakes and chocolate covered strawberries.

Labor Day Weekend Sales!

I hope that everyone has relaxing end of summer/Labor Day plans for this weekend! Dan and I are planning on going to the massive Art Festival that will be held in the Milwaukee Third Ward on Saturday and then planning to have a relaxing BBQ Sunday evening.  

Milwaukee is hosting the 110th annual Harley Davidson Festival this weekend and so we are hoping to do a little people watching at it and then avoid the loud event all together. 

As I was browsing around online I ran across this round up of LABOR DAY SALES and wanted to share them with you! Enjoy the back to school and beginning of fall shopping.  This list includes Jcrew, Vince Camuto, and Bloomingdales...just to name a few!

Keds are for Kids...I think not!

Recently got some bright red Keds (yes I copied T-swift...) and they are so adorable and comfortable.  Athletic tennis shoes and jeans are a big no-no...but these Keds are simply charming! Wearing these around a city are a great way to be comfy without looking like a total tourist. Bensimon shoes (a French favorite) and converse (an American classic) are great alternatives as well! 

P.S. Check out the new Kate Spade for Keds they are fabulous!
