How to Wear: Yellow Eyeshadow!

I love color!  I love wearing colorful makeup- and I love making it work in everyday life.  This is a new series I am starting to share how I wear colors that many are scared of. 

Today's color is...yellow!

Here I have paired a sunny yellow color placed on the lid and inner tear duct area with an eggplant purple at the outer corner.  I blended it out with a soft brown in the crease and finished it off with a light beige on the brow bone.

Red Lip Fever!

I love this color!  It's a rare occasion when I wear it simply because my husband somehow associates red with street walkers--but who cares! I love it.  I thought I'd share because I was in a sharing mood.  Don't mind the seatbelt.  I was on my way to work at 7am :)

What I'm Wearing: 
Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Flame

Save That Money, Honey: Samples

Here is yet another post dedicated to saving money!


I love to order free samples! You can't imagine how often they come in handy!  I personally love to put them to use when traveling, but I also use them to try something new.  So when I would normally make my rounds to the travel section at the nearest Target or Walmart to spend around 12-15$ on basic toiletries for travel, I now have a small stockpile of sample-sized items that I can use for my family instead. 

Some of my favorite blogs to get the latest samples are: 
Penny Pinchin' Mom
The Frugal Free Gal
I Crave Freebies

TIP: I hate typing in the same information over and over so if you have an iPad or iPhone, I would say to go to your settings and set up autofill, so that every time you are requesting a sample you can click on that little magic button and wha-la, that little form is done and submitted, and your sample is on its way!
