It's no secret that I love a good beauty product! What I like even more is a good priced beauty product that does the trick just as well as those swanky ones that take all of my money. So, today I am sharing my favorite bargain beauty buys!
#1 - Hawaiian Tropic's Silk Hydration
This is typically used for sun burn or after sun exposure, but it's also excellent to use after shaving your legs! The aloe is cool and calming while the lotion hydrates--it's the best of both worlds in one bottle! Try it, I swear by it. You'll love it!!
#2 - Batiste Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is a staple around my house! It provides the perfect amount of texture and product to my hair for curling. I have tried my fair share of brands, and I have found this one to be the best! They have tons of options as far as scent goes, and they also offer different colors to coordinate with your hair color. (I use the blonde when my roots get really bad;
it provides a light dusting of color to help hide the damage.)
#3 - The Conair Infinity X-Pro 1.5" Curling Iron
I am often asked about what kind of hair styling tools I use. While I splurged on my DryBar Buttercup hair dryer, I decided to be a little more frugal with the curling iron to start out with while I tested out the style. The style stuck and so did the curling iron (not literally though)! I do love it!! It does the trick just as well as any professional tool. It gets very hot
very quickly, but doesn't dry out my hair in the process.
#4 - Loreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara
This product is simply F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! It gives just the right amount of volume and length, and I love that it's waterproof. It comes off very easily with a little face soap and warm water.
#5 - Pixi Make-Up Fixing Mist
This rose-water- based make-up fixing mist really works! Living in a humid place, I thought it was a little silly to add more moisture; but after I tried it, I was sold! It really does help my make-up stay put all day!
And, it's also the perfect refreshing pick-me-up throughout the day.
#6 - Sally Henson, Dries Instantly Top Coat
I swear this top coat really does dry instantly... I promise!! This is the BEST top coat I have found. Besides drying at record speed, it's shiny and durable. If you're like me and always try to do a last minute manicure before going somewhere,
or if you just don't have time to wait around (like all of us) this is the perfect find!
Comment and let me know what your favorite bargain beauty buys are, too. I would love to try them out!
Thanks for reading, y'all!!

Let me start off by saying that our bedroom is no where near being done; however, I am so in love with our new mattress and bedding I just couldn't wait to post about it! The challenge for me here was making the room comfortable for both me and Conner. My personal style is very preppy; and his is, well, not. I prefer loud patterns and bright colors while Conner would be happy with some brown furniture and a discount-store comforter. But, in the words of Leigh Anne Tuohy, from The Blind Side, "It was heinous, and I was not about to let that in my house, so I got something nicer."
So here's a little sneak peek and all of the links to shop this look.

So what do you do when your child-hood best friend, who is really like the annoying brother you never had, is getting married!? Throw a stock the bar party of course!!
But seriously... friends who are really family is a true gift in life and we were so happy to be apart of this special time.
A "stock the bar party" is a fun choice, especially when hosting something for the couple (not just a bridal shower; the soon to be hubby needs some love too). There are TONS of ideas and themes on Pinterest that the options are pretty much endless.
Check out our fall themed stock the bar bash below - I even included a tutorial on how to re-create our pumpkin center pieces! These would also be great for a Thanksgiving center piece, hostess gift, or "just because"!
Pumpkin Flower Arrangement Tutorial:
-1 medium to large pumpkin, as round and perfect as you can find!
-1 carving knife
-6-8" tall flower vase (this will depend on the height of your pumpkin - choose a vase that is small enough to fit within)
-Flowers! Whatever you like best!
-Carve out the "lid" of the pumpkin. Be sure to make the hole a decent size, as if you were carving a jack-o-lantern
-Remove the lid and throw it away. Begin to remove the insides of the pumpkin. Clean it out as best you can but it doesn't have to be perfect.
-Place your vase in the center of the hole and stuff newspapers around it. This will help hold it in place so it doesn't move around.
-Fill with water and begin arranging! Be sure to cut some shorter pieces so that it covers up the hole.
-Now you have the perfect fall arrangement!
Cheers y'all - to fall, family friends, a life time of love, & stock the bar parties!!
