New Year, New Look - Desk/Office Updates

Hi Everyone, Happy New Year!! 
Today I thought I would share with you some updates I have made to my desk/office. 

A few days ago I cleaned everything off of and out of my desk and decided to give it some new decor (all of which I
 already had and a few DIY'S).  


I get a lot of questions about my clock screensaver 

To get this, go to Google and search flip clock screensaver


The fashion book I found at Five Below for only $1

#Girlboss book - Target

Polka dot planner - Kate Spade 

Flowers - Tj Maxx (I added the Chanel label to fancy it up)


Leaf dish - Tj Maxx


This little box is another Tj Maxx find. I am a true maxxinista hehe. 

I like to keep my desk looking clutter free so I use this to store all of my camera cords.


By the way have you noticed we are going back in time? 

Lamp - Tj Maxx


My pen cup is yet another Tj Maxx find

This is another  DIY - I added the diptyque label


For the moment I"m using this white & gold notebook from Tj Maxx as a mouse pad


Above my desk I have a couple of floating shelves from Lowes


Marquee arrow - Target 

Chanel notebook - Tj Maxx

I will always love you sign - Tj Maxx

Gold letters (stand for Bill & Faith) - Hobby Lobby
These were paper mache letters that I spray painted gold. I think they were only $1 each


It feels so nice having my desk drawers organized

Organizer, pens and paperclips are from Target

By the way Molly got a hippopotamus for Christmas hehe



Molly once again had to photo bomb. She was patiently waiting to go outside and play in the snow

My ghost chair was a gift from my wonderful husband

If you're looking for a ghost chair you can find them on Amazon and Ebay for a reasonable price

The faux fur throw (which reminds me of a bear) is from Marshalls 


To the right of my desk is this white set of drawers

I believe this is from Big Lots. I bought it years ago (it was actually an oak colored nightstand 
that I painted white and added some tiles to the top)

Mirrored tray is from Tj Maxx

In case you can't tell I shop at Tj Maxx A LOT

Heart mug - Starbucks

Candle holder - Target

Candle - Hobby Lobby

High heel tape dispenser - Staples

Current Favorites ~ Beauty, Fashion & More


Hi everyone, It has been a very long time since I have done a favorites post so I
thought I would show you some of my current favorites.
 

These taupe lace up studded combat boots are from Windsor.


They retail for $36.90 but you can usually always find a coupon code online. Just Google
 Windsor coupon. I think I found a 20% off coupon when I bought mine.



 
 
I love the studding on these and they are super comfy.
 
 
 
Muffin and Molly got me this perfume for Mothers Day...what sweet dogs they are:)
It is the Marc Jacobs Daisy Sunshine. This perfume has a nice floral, fruity scent.
I am in love with the gorgeous, bright packaging.
 
 
I have been using this Victoria's Secret Pink fun & fearless body butter for the past month.
It leaves my skin feeling so silky and soft and it smells amazing (water lily & currant).
Also just to let you know this body butter does have a little bit of shimmer in it.
 
 
 These Loreal Colour Riche lip balms are super moisturizing.
 

Shades from left to right; 947 Legally Regal, 946 Provence Romance, 945 Sundays By The Seine
 


 
These lip balms are very sheer as you can see by the swatches above. Swatches from
 top to bottom; Legally Regal, Provence Romance, Sundays By The Seine.
Out of the 3 Legally Regal is the most pigmented.
 
 
Next, is my Revlon Lip Butter in Sorbet. The Revlon Lip Butters are also very moisturizing.
 
 
This is a gorgeous, bright color for summer.


These are two of my favorite nail polishes.
 
 
 
 
I love bright nail polishes for spring and summer. This is two coats of Boom Boom Room.
 
 
You guys know I love sparkles, this is what the two look like worn together.
 

For drinks I would have to say the Bolthouse Farms  Breakfast Smoothie and the Arizona
 Green Tea have been my faves. If you have tried the Bolthouse drinks let me
know which ones are your favorites.
 
 
My favorite Starbucks drinks are the green tea and the strawberries and cream frappuccinos.  

 
My last favorite drink has been water. I have been trying to drink 4-6 of these a day.
 
 
I hope you are all having an amazing Thursday!!
Xoxo, Faith

What's In My Everyday Makeup Bag


Hi everyone, Today I am going to show you what's in my everyday makeup bag.



 
I have been using the Revlon colorstay foundation for the past few months and I love it.
It gives amazing coverage and lasts all day.
 

To set my foundation I have been using the Elf high definition powder. This is a loose powder
as you can see and goes on sheer. This gives my face a nice flawless finish without looking
cakey and it also makes my face feel so silky smooth. Best part is its only $6.


For Bronzer I have been using my Nars Laguna bronzer.


This is a great bronzer because it doesn't leave your skin looking orange or muddy.
If you don't want to spend a lot of money I would also recommend the NYC
bronzer in sunny. You can pick up the NYC one for around $3 at the drugstore.


I am in love with the Benefit Coralista blush. I have been wearing this for the past few
months and it has quickly become my favorite blush.




Next, is my Hard Candy so baked bronzer in Tiki. I use this for my highlighter and it is amazing.




For my eyes it is no surprise that I'm still using my NYX Runway Collection palette in
 Caviar & Bubbles. This is my 3rd one of these palettes...need I say more?


These eye shadows are amazing!! They are super pigmented, long lasting and the
colors are gorgeous. This palette is great for an everyday natural eye look.


 

I have been using Covergirls lashblast fusion for at least the past 3 years. This is a mascara
I always go back to...I buy new ones and none of them ever compare to this.
It leaves my lashes looking longer and fuller. It is incredible!!

 
I have been obsessed with the Loreal Colour Riche lip balms. This is the one I have been wearing.
It is in the shade Rose Elixir. This lip balm gives my lips a nice sheer pink tint, leaves them
feeling super moisturized and smells amazing.
 
 
That is everything in my everyday makeup bag. If you have any products that you
 recommend please let me know. I always love trying new products.
 
I hope you are all having a great Tuesday!!
Xoxo, Faith
