Autumn in Paris

Today is just one of those days. I am really missing Paris and I am super ready for the cool fall weather that should be here any minute.

Last year at this time, my husband and I were preparing for our September wedding and our October honeymoon to Paris. It was such a busy time in our lives, but so exciting. We had so much to look forward to and so many new adventures ready to happen. We still have tons of adventures and special trips and our 1 year anniversary to celebrate. I am just feeling a little nostalgic I guess. Too bad we can't go to Paris to celebrate our 1 year of marriage! Don't get me wrong, I am definitely not complaining...the memories and the photos are so special to me. Plus we are preparing for a super fun trip to San Antonio. See, lots of crazy trips ahead :)

the favorites

I happen to love beauty products. These are just some of my favorite products that I use on a daily basis.
Korres Lip Gloss ( I use the light pink #11)
Make up Forever Powder (keeps everything in place)
Benefit Cream Shadow ( my favorite is Birthday Suit, a sheer shimmering nude...haven't used it in awhile...might have to go buy some!)
Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Shadow ( I love it in Platinum)
Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer (perfection....covers any red marks or old acne scars)

red door


I would love to be heading to the airport and hopping on a plane to anywhere. It feels like it has been way too long since I have had a vacation.
