October Ipsy

Ipsy bag is here!! I cannot believe its October already!!
The bag this month is cute. The dark aqua/ turquoise color is good for fall!
From left to right.
  • Jesse's Girl Mineralized baked eye shadow. This eye shadow is pretty big and looks like a full size. However, I don't really wear colors that bright or bold..But I will play with it and see if i can make something out of it.
  • H20+ Face Oasis hydration cream. Like I said before, can't hurt to have more face moisturizer as I will never have to run out and buy more!
  • Starlooks lip gloss. (top) This color is called Guilty Pleasure and its a nice nude-pink pigmented color. I don't like lip gloss because its sticky (but i loved it back in Middle school. i mean, who didn't? :P). But i think I can work with this one. 
  • Ayres Body Butter. yay more lotion/butter!
  • Skyn iceland Mini glacial facial cleansing clothes. I have a whole box of make up remover clothes (a box that I got from Costco, so its like 500 wipes) but i will give this a go too.

Overall, I would like it more if i could've gotten the eyeshadow in another color. I watched some other youtube vlogger and she got a nice purple/pink color.

October Stitch Fix

Stitch fix is here!!!
I was really looking forward to this one because I left a note for the stylist that I want to be sent pieces that will look good in my engagement pictures next month! 
A little recap on what Stitch Fix is, it is a fashion style box that you subscribe monthly for $20. They will send you 5 items based on your detailed questionnaire about your body and your style ( you can send them your fashion pinterest board, too!! ) the $20 will go towards your clothing if you decide to keep any and ship back in the prepaid postage bag that comes with the box. Free shipping both ways. And you get a discount for buying everything in the box!
ok! so lets see what we have here

BOliver & Oak Kezar Chevron Embroidary Top.
I hated this top so I didn't even both to style it or do anything. This is a no!

Market and Spruce-Trina Crochet Detail Tab Sleeve shirt
This is cute and very thin like linen material. kinda cute

this is it tugged in.

41Hawthorn Elaine 3/4 Pleat Waist Dress
This is cute, fits perfect and maybe good for the pictures with boots?

Octavia dustin Window Pane Print Infinity scarf
not too thrilled about this as its just a normal looking gray infinity.

Just Black Dean Ankle zip Skinny Jean
this fits perfect but a little bit too long and looked scrunched up on the bottom..

Calligraphy for Beginners!

So I came across this website called Darby smart (click on link to check out this website. Its a website for you to order anything that you want to D.I.Y. I was browsing and I came across this Calligraphy kit for $19.99. However, I signed up for their e-mail so I got 10$ off, so I only paid $9.99 and free shipping. i was like, why not, I love calligraphy so I could learn it and write my invitations with my new skill :P
got here about 3 days! super fasT

here's what came in the box, ink, nib cleaner, and silver ink for writing on color papers, pen and different nibs and a booklet teaching basic fonts.

so last night I started practicing. honestly, it sucked. It was weird getting used to having to slow down my writing and dip into the ink and then learning the strokes.

then this is playing with different nib and writing in old english. i think it looked ok for a beginner. Obviously calligraphy doesn't come instant.

However, it peaked my interest and I started researching on calligraphy and such. I started reading blogs and whatnot and today I went to Hobby Lobby (because I didn't want to order another kit of nibs online) and got me some different nibs. After standing at the aisle for a good 20 minutes reading reviews I picked a pack for thin nibs (sketch nibs?) for like $3. 
and more practice. these nibs  are the ones I wanted. They write like the modern calligraphy that I was looking for, and again, I need more practice but they look much better already!!
can't wait to use this for invitations and such.
