WIWW: Plum and Gold Edition

 Last April I began working on dressing "cute" from day-to-day.  I kept finding myself wearing sloppy clothes and a messy ponytail.  As a mommy, I don't want my kids to look back and remember me as a mom who rarely looked nice.  Thus, the What I Wore Wednesday posts... holding me accountable.
Plum top: Sew Dang Cute, Kohls
Gold top: Mossimo, Target
Scarf: Target
Jeans: Seven, TJ Max
Shoes: Sneaky Monkey, Z Boutique
Necklace: Lisa Leonard

Ella wanted to take a picture, so I had to bend down to get in the frame.  I love the back of this top, by the way.  It makes a somewhat boring shirt really cute and sassy.

Also, Kohl's is giving you, my readers, a 10% off code for you to use on any online purchases at Kohl's!!
Use: UBLOGTEN when checking out and receive 10% off until October 24th!!!

I have received several emails from chicas wanting to know how I do my eye makeup.  I thought I would include that info in this post.  I'm no professional, but I do love makeup.  I use Mary Kay Cosmetics and LOVE the results I get with the products.  

Highlighter: Spun Silk Mineral Eye Color
Mid-tone: Chocolate Kiss Mineral Eye Color
Accent Color: Coal Mineral Eye Color (just a hint on the outside corner)
Inner Corner of my eye: Gold Coast Eye color blended into the rest of my eye
I use eye color with my angled brush to do my liner... in Coal.
Lash Love mascara in I love Black.

I also leave my eyebrows a little thicker to add dimension.  I don't like them super thin.
That's it folks... enjoy!


For any of these products... email Gentry Moffitt.  She is an amazing MK Director that will give you top-notch customer service!!!
Let her know I sent you!!!
