Dewy Looks with Butter London Spring Makeup

Meg with Butter Lipgloss

I've really started experimenting with makeup lately. I think I'm reverting back to my teenage years, lord help us all, and just having fun with different looks. For a busy weekend day I've been really liking pretty and natural looks. It feels fresh and spring like. But being in my mid-thirties means it still takes some work to get that dewy fresh face. I've recently added a few additions to my makeup collection with Butter London. Before this I had only used the Butter London nail polish and I loved it. The Butter spring makeup has...

Get Ready, Pretty Pinks for Spring

Pinks for Spring

Nothing feels quite as fresh to me as pale pink for spring. After all the heavy tones of winter it's a visual relief to wear something that feels light and airy.

The hubs and I have always celebrated heart day before or after February 14th rather than on the actual day. We prefer avoiding the crowds for a cozy snuggle fest at home. You see, our Valentine's Day tradition has long been to order in takeout, watch a movie and crack open a bottle of vino or mix up some...

Bright Ballet Striped Tee

Striped Tee and Blazer

Calling all tee-shirt lovers! We've found another great one and this bright ballet striped tee is definitely not one to miss. I love styling a tee with a blazer for a casual professional look, although I already have a few other ways I'm planning on wearing it. So the background. Knowing that I love stripes, you won't be surprised when I say I already have two striped tee's in my closet. But I discovered that they both felt a little short length wise which make them hard to wear, especially to work. I was on the...
