little dog

This post has a definite double meaning...

first and foremost, 
our extended fur family grew by one this week...

Introducing my parents new puppy Stanley Oliver!

A little story time...
I saw this little bugger and sounded the alarm, 
emergency sister meeting (+ one via texts and photos)
to decide if this is the THE one

Oh... he WAS the one!

We planned the pick up, 
had to make some little white lies up...
we left a note telling my mom we went black friday shopping at the mall...
which led to some temporarily hurt feelings...

But it all worked out when this little one arrived on the door step!

We think it's love!

How could you not love this little baby!

Ironically my parents had planned to take us to a new brewery called Little Dog Brewing Co.
in Neptune City, NJ!

My Nonno patiently waiting for our tour!

We met the owner Gretchen and had a tour

& tasting!

What I Wore: glasses- Zenni Optical, lips- Maybelline Baby Lips in orangesweatshirt- MinkPink {via Plato's Closet}, jacket- Forever 21, pants- Anthropologie, boots- vintage, bag- vintage Dooney & Bourke 

He is quickly becoming one of the pack =)

Humble Beauty #12- A Whole Year!

I can't believe it has been a whole year of humble beauty opinions!
I wanted to start with my beauty wish list for the holidays!
4. LORAC Mega Pro Palette {~$80 now on ebay- sold out everywhere}

One holiday pallet I did get my hands on is the Naked On The Run by Urban Decay!

I have been wanting this NARS Single Eye Shadow in Persia, 
way too expensive but I LOVE IT!

I decided to go ahead and finally order this eyeshadow with a Fan Friday Party Pack! 
So much free stuff- including this adorable Dior lip gloss sample! 
& an adorable lipstick pouch!

This month's ipsy was sparkly and fun!
Love Elizabeth Mott's glitterati eye liner & be a bombshell eye shadow base so far!

I really wanted the laura mercier fan brush {to use for highlighter} in my ipsy bag but I didn't get it,
so I ordered it on ebay!  

I was like, "I got the Walmart box, how do I get this Target one?!"

I am loving these beauty boxes!
Especially love the NYX Milk eye pencil & the dry shampoo!

 Monthly empties:
bath: Dove white soap- always use these / Clean & Clear  deep action exfoliating scrub- took me forever to finish this stuff. Overall decent face wash / GlamGlow mask- Sephora sample from my beauty bag discussed above. Enjoyed it but I do think it may have broken me out a little / Flaky Soap and Glory lotion sample- Also from Sephora bag. Super thick but nice!,/ Cozy Nights Target Candle- MY FAVORITE! I love these! / Revlon Luxurious Colorsilk in "Burgundy"- my favorite hair color!    

makeup: Redken hairspray- I got this from my hair dresser to carry on my wedding day & I finally used it up! Pretty good hairspray- has a lot of hold / Suave dry shampoo- I love this stuff, one of my favorites have an extra that I am already using / BB Cushion by Laneige- I am still using a couple of these colors but I like this stuff, it smells interesting but I think I like the smell. & I got a new one from my Target beauty box so I will continue to use them / Too Faced "Better Than Sex" Mascara- LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff, traded my Urban Decay Perversion mascara {not a huge fan} with my sister for her "Better Than Sex" / Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in "Light"- Love this stuff! Have another already- makes a huge difference in my makeup routine / Essie "All in one" top coat- Love this stuff have repurchased but also use it i combo with Seche Vite / Elf makeup brush- got so scratchy it needs to go   
I have enjoyed these monthly beauty purchases / reviews / hauls!
Cheers to another year of humble beauty opinions!

Perfect Thanksgiving Skirt & new glasses!

Wore almost this exact outfit around Thanksgiving last year, 

Funny since I just got my hair cut almost the same length as last year!

What I Wore: glasses- c/o Firmoo, lips- Hardcandy "Infamous", necklace- Sira Mara, top- Old Navy, sweater- hand-me-down from mom, stockings- Betsey Johnson, skirt- eShakti, boots- Steve Madden

We got our first snow storm
Which lead to more than a foot in NY where we usually celebrate Thanksgiving so we are having it at my parents house!

The glasses I've been wearing are new!
I was so excited when Firmoo had a exclusive for bloggers!
I picked up these tortoise ones!

I love the cases that Firmoo sends with their glasses! 

It was about time I replaced my other tortious pair- old prescription and the metal detail fell out of the side of the ones from Proopticals...
Thankful for the perfect Thanksgiving skirt & new glasses!
& my family of course!
