Fashion | Stilnest Anna Saccone - Joly Zodiac "Sagittarius" Sign Necklace

Hello!
 
I am back after another long pause in blogging and like I always say in the past I will be back blogging more... I really hope to keep that promise this time.
 
So I am back with something I've wanted to share with you all for months now and just haven't got around to doing so. I've had this piece since around November or a little before and I have worn it almost every day since it arrived. It's my zodiac sign necklace from Anna Saccones collection with Stilnest.
 
This collection was designed by one half of the popular British vlogging couple Anna Saccone of "The Saccone - Joly's." A little story on how the collection came to be:
 
 "One of Anna Saccone’s signature items is her Scorpio star sign necklace. This piece is not only jewellery to her, but a really personal talisman. Anna explains, “Unfortunately I can’t tell you where it’s from because it belonged to my dad before me and I inherited it from him. He was a Scorpio too, I was actually born the day before his birthday… I was his birthday present!”
 
I love how the collection was inspired by a piece of jewelry she inherited from her late father. When it was first released last year I was interested in getting one of the gold charms in my zodiac sign but held off because of the price and not knowing if I'd wear it enough to justify it. But I ended up buying it and loving it. I've worn it nearly nonstop since receiving it last November; I can see it becoming a piece I will love for a long time and even pass on. My baby niece is also a "Sagittarius" so one day I might pass it on to her.
 
Now I am not one of those firm believers in astrology I just like personalized things like this so; I understand if you're like "Zodiac signs are a bunch of BS!" . I just think these necklaces are a beautiful piece of jewelry.
 
 
 
 
 
This necklace comes in 3 different finishes 925 silver, 925 silver rose gold plated, or like mine 925 silver gold plated. And it comes in 3 different chain lengths l (31.5cm) , m (23.5cm) , s (17.5cm).
 
The quality is beautiful! This would make a wonderful gift for anyone. Great idea for a Mothers Day gift, because ladies & gents don't forget about your Mamas it's just around the corner.
 
 While you are there don't forget to look at all the other cool collections Stilnest has to offer.
 
 
I hope you all are having a beautiful Monday afternoon.
 
~Love
Emily

January 2017 Makeup & Beauty Favorites

Hello!
 
Can you believe that January has come and gone already?!? This past month I've branched out and tried a bunch of new products; I figured since it's a new year and I always use the same products month after month that I would go on a hunt for some new things. And I have come to love a lot of them.
 
In late December early January my face had a bad breakout I don't know what happened if it was just a bad time for my skin or maybe all the chocolate and sweets I ate over the holidays or what. So I've been looking for some good and affordable acne products; along with a medium to high coverage foundation to cover up the blemishes.
 
So here are a few of the things I've been loving.
 
 


Neutrogrna Oil-Free Acne Wash | This stuff is a really good face wash. I use it a few times a week since it's a scrub and I have sensitive skin. The only downside are the fine scrub particles; they are hard to get off. So make sure they are all off before applying makeup or going to bed. Available at Walmart or Target
 
O.R.G Skincare Mineral Peel Face | I received this face peel in a FabFitBox; I probably wouldn't have bought it otherwise but now that I have tried it I would order it again for sure. I don't know if it has or hasn't helped with my breakouts or not but it has made my skin feel super soft. Available at O.R.GSkincare.com
 
 
 
 

Marrakesh Hair Oil | I don't overly buy hair products because most of the time I just use a few simple things. But Marrakesh has some amazing hair products. This oil is amazing. It makes your hair feel and look amazing and not only that it smells wonderful. I use it on slightly damp hair and then blow dry it. Available at Marrakeshhaircare.com
 
Urban Decay All nighter Spray | I've been looking for a primer or setting spray to help keep my makeup looking flawless. Having been a huge UD fan for years I thought why not give this a try. And so I did, it's amazing. I'm obsessed with this stuff. I thought I'd only use it on nights out and special occasions but it makes my makeup look so nice that I use it everyday. Available at Sephora or Ulta
 


Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation | This stuff is incredible! The texture and application is great. It has medium to full coverage. And feels great on my skin. I've been using this foundation for almost a month and it's amazing. I think I've finally found the perfect foundation. Available at Walmart or Target
 
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer | The beauty community has raved about this product since it came out but since it says age rewind I guess I just never really thought about it. It never hurts to start using age rewinding products and recently I've been fighting dark circles due to lack of good sleep; and this stuff has been a life saver. It's a must under eye concealer. Available at Walmart or Target
 
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick | My favorite lipsticks are liquid lipsticks. They last amazingly and don't smudge like regular lipsticks. So when I received this beautiful lipstick as a gift from my cousin I was so excited. I've heard many good things about Anastasia but never used anything from the brand. This color is called Sad Girl, It's a metallic black cherry. It has shimmer and sparkle! It's the prettiest color and finish of a lipstick I've ever seen. Available at Sephora
 


 
 
So that's what I've been loving this month. I hope you maybe found some new products to give a try. This year I want to try more things instead of sticking to the same things all the time. Hopefully this will be a new feature on my blog and I hope it's something you all like.
 
What are your favorites from this month?
 

 

 
~Love

Fashion: Military Inspired Winter Outfit Of The Day | Kenneth Cole & Burberry

Hello! Lovelies
 
 
The cold has finally hit hard here in Colorado; so that means bring out the wool! Wool hat,'s scarves and my favorite winter coats.
 
I've been rocking this beautiful Kenneth Cole coat that I found at a thrift shop for under $10 a couple years back. I love pairing this coat with many different styles and dressing it up or down. For this outfit I was feeling Army inspired; with the cut of the coat and the beautiful green color, it paired great with my black combat boots.
 
 



 
I love that this outfit features high end designer pieces and low end things from places like Target and Kohl's. You don't need a ton of money to make a great outfit.
 
Coat:
Kenneth Cole - Old  (Similar style, different brand at Macy's.)
 
Scarf:
 
Jeans:
 
Kohl's - Rock & Republic Old (Similar style .)

Makeup: Mac Selena Collection | The Queen of Tejano + Giveaway

Hello!
 
Last Thursday was a huge day for Selena fans; Mac cosmetics released a beautiful purple theme collection in her honor. The collection came about by her loyal fans and a petition a few years back. At first Mac thought it wouldn't be a good fit and that it wouldn't go over well. But we the Selena fans kept pushing and won the battle in the end; and did we ever so prove them wrong.
During the pre-sales and online sales of the collection everything sold out almost instantly.
 
Sadly I was among the many Selena fans who weren't able to buy online; so early Thursday morning I headed to my local Mac counter before it opened and stood in line for 2 hours or so while it rained waiting with around 50+ loyal, kind & die hard Selena Quintanilla-Pérez fans.
 
 
Things at my local Mac counter went fast. But luckily I was able to get everything I wanted. I even got back ups of the beautiful lip colors. Since I am a huge Selena fan and have a small collection of other memorabilia I plan on keeping some of these products as a collectible. So that's why I've only swatched the lipsticks I've used.

Lifestyle | Osborn Farms Pumpkin Patch


Hello! Lovelies
 
 
October is finally here; queue the pumpkin spice lattes, scarves, boots & autumn leaves. To celebrate the kick-off of October this past weekend I attended Osborn Farms opening weekend. Not only did I celebrate once but twice by going Saturday and then Sunday with all my family and sweet little nephew.

I've been going to Osborn farm for the past couple years; they grow beautiful pumpkins and gourds of all different varieties. It's one of the high lights of fall for me going to their farm and buying Pumpkins.

The only bad thing is the past two years they haven't had antique & vintage booth vendors which was always one of my favorite parts of the pumpkin patch. 
 
 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Along with pumpkins of all colors , shapes & sizes they had some food vendors; including my favorite local baker Rise Artisan Bread. They make the best cider doughnuts I've ever ate. Nothing says fall more than cider flavored goodies. Yum! Yum!

 This year I had a brand new experience taking my nephew, Emerson. It's the first Fall that I've been able to enjoy being an auntie which has been very fun. So this year I enjoyed the petting zoo with him; he loved the sweet little baby goats. They made him smile and laugh. They're just so cute! I loved them as well and after playing with them I want to someday own a goat. #BucketList

Also my family and I had fun going around the beautiful grounds of the farm and taking some family pictures.  It really kicked off the spirit of fall. I can't wait for long autumn nights by the fire pit, dancing leaves and Halloween.


So what are you most looking forward to this fall? Do you have a favorite pumpkin patch?
 
 
~Love
 
Emily

Fashion: GlassesShop Mirrored Cat Eye Sunglass + Review

Hello! Lovelies
 
Today is the first day of fall, can you believe it?!? I am so happy for fall to finally be here it's by far my favorite time of year. As you have seen I haven't blogged in many many months. But I am back today and plan on sticking around and posting.
 
This week I had the pleasure of trying out a new pair of sunglasses from the cool online shop called: GlassesShop.com  . They offer affordable & chic glasses for every style and look, for both men & women. Not only do they have great sunglasses but prescription eyeglasses as well. 
 
 

 
 



 
 
Recently I've had a thing for mirrored sunglasses. I never really had any until a couple months ago I bought a blue pair of aviators, so when I seen these blue cat eye mirror glasses on GlassesShop.com I knew I had to give them a try.
 
The thing I really like about these glasses is how sturdy and strong they feel for the just over $50 dollar price tag.  Another thing they offer is prescription sunglasses , now that is not something I personally need but I do know a lot of glasses wearers that would love this site and their prescription options.
 
 
 
If you like these Cat eye glasses take a look for yourself. They come in multiple color choices but I do highly recommend these beautiful blue ones.
 
Use CODE GSHOT50 
 
 
For 50% off on eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses(sale frames excluded). 
 
So head on over to Glasses Online and give it a good look around. Just because it's now fall doesn't mean you don't need a killer pair of sunglasses for those bright sunny fall days!
 
~Love

DIY Home Decor: Gallery Wall | Beautiful Wall Decor Inspiration

Hello! Lovelies

Long time no talk. It's been a month or longer since I last posted but today I am back.


 If you know me I am a very eclectic person who loves mixing a lot of different textures and styles. So recently when I decided on changing the wall décor In my bedroom I thought why not go for a gallery wall?! That way I can mix all the things I love and if it doesn't match perfectly that's okay, because that's the beauty of a gallery wall.
 
 
Recently I had the pleasure of working with Misty Michelle to make a custom wooden sign for my gallery wall. The really cool thing about Misty's shop is that you can take any picture you have and turn it into a beautiful art keepsake. She adds your picture to wood and then you pick a nice quote to go along with it. For my gallery wall I used this custom wooden sign as my starting point. And then searched for different things to go along with it. I am by no means done yet but that's the beauty I think of a gallery wall you can just keep on adding different treasures you find along the way.
 
I've incorporated:
 
Vintage Family Photos
 
A Dream catcher from my sister in laws baby shower
 
A Crucifix
 
Angel wings
 
And an "E" for Emily
 
But like I said I am not done yet. I can't wait to find more unique pieces to add along to the wall.
 
I really hope you check out Misty's shop she has something for everyone and is great to work with. Kids Mother's day is not that long away now so why not have Misty create a beautiful gift for your Mother.
 
 
 
 
Below are some fun pictures I've sourced from Pinterest. I hope they give you some inspiration into making your own creative and unique wall.

 If you have a Gallery wall in your home I'd love to see it. Tag me on Twitter or Instagram. @ ChicCountryGirl
