Best Beauty Tip

Today I thought I would share my favorite beauty tip ever! I'm not real great with makeup, but I love this little trick because it is so simple, but I love the results!

I saw this tip on a video, so I'm going to post that and also the steps.

The video is a little long, so if you just want to skip it, here are the steps!

1. Put your mascara on like you would normally do.

2. Heat your eyelash curler for about 10 seconds with a blowdryer.

3. Curl your eyelashes. I usually hold the eyelash curler on my eyelashes for about 20 seconds.

4. Put another quick coat of mascara on - mainly just focusing on the tips of your lashes.

I absolutely love this trick because it works so well! I can definitely tell a huge difference in the length and definition of my lashes when I do them this way.

This Week

Hi everyone! I hope your summer is going great so far - it seems to be flying by for me!

This week I've decided to do my posting a little bit different. Rather than post about my day or what's going on in my life, I thought I would do some posts more about me.

I've got a couple of ideas in mind. The posts are going to be facts about me and stuff you maybe didn't know about me!

Hopefully you enjoy getting to know me a little better, and I'll be back next week with my normal kind of posts.

Have a great week!!

Harry Potter Facts

I came across a blog today with tons of random Harry Potter facts. I really enjoyed reading through them, so I'm posting some of my favorites on here! If you don't want to know any spoilers, you probably don't want to read this post :)

Here are some random Harry Potter facts.......

This made me laugh!

I was wondering why Crabbe was different in the movie......

This makes me extremely sad. :(

Now, here are some facts as to what happened to the characters after the final book. I loved reading these facts!

I think it's sweet that then named one of their kids Fred :)

I got all of these facts off of this Tumblr. If you are into Harry Potter, check out that website - I thought it was super interesting!

My Favorite Pins

I have become so obsessed with Pinterest these last few days. I don't have anything super exciting to blog about, so I'm just going to share some of my favorite pins!

Love this quote!

I pretty much love anything that has to do with weddings :)

SO true!

I absolutely love this staircase and window seat!

I can't even imagine having a closet like this.....

Old/rustic and modern at the same time. LOVE!

Dresses are my drug :)

I really, really want to own a house with a window seat some day.

I absolutely love Pinterest. If you don't have one, sign up!

The Target Dress

I am obsessed with what my family calls "The Target Dress".

What can I say? I love dresses, and I absolutely love Target. These dresses are so awesome that I decided to blog about them and pass on the information to you because if you don't own any of these dresses, you need to. ASAP :)

They are knit dresses, and they are usually $18, but sometimes they go on sale for $15. Either way, you really can't beat them!

I've got 3 of them. A black one...

...a purple one...

...and an aqua one that I just bought today!

I wear these dresses all the time. I use the black one as a cover up. I wear the other ones for everything: going out with my friends, lounging around the house, or out to dinner. They are so comfortable to wear for "everyday" things, but nice enough that you can dress them up for something nice. Not to mention they are so cool to wear out in the heat!

They come in practically every color imaginable. I love this color too!

Everyone in my family is obsessed with them - my mom, my aunt, my cousin, and I all have a bunch of different ones, so every time we're out at least one of us has one on!

If you don't own any, get out to Target now and pick some up! Or go here to order them online. :)

BIG News!

Tonight I get to cross off one of my biggest 101 in 1001's........

48. Get a job.

I will be babysitting 2 little kids everyday after school until their parents get home. I'm really excited since it is the first "regular" job I've had. Meaning, it will be regular, set hours, and I won't be working for my grandpa. :)

It isn't a big "official" job that involves paying taxes or anything, but it is a job none the less!

I can't wait to start - I'm really looking forward to it!

Other than that, my weekend has been pretty busy!

On Friday I went wedding dress shopping with my cousin, and she found her dress. I'm so glad I got to be there when she found it!

On Saturday, I went over my aunt's house and found out that my cousin is having another baby girl! I can't wait to meet her :)

I went to a wedding Saturday night. I didn't know the people getting married (my dad works with the groom), but I wanted to go anyway because I love weddings! Afterwards I went and got myself a Chick-fil-a shake and watched a movie with my sweet puppy.

Today I went to a family reunion with my mom's side of the family. It was so unbelievably hot. I thought I was melting. Then we had a family party with my dad's side. It was a big family day today!

I'm planning on going swimming tomorrow because it is so stinkin' hot around here. I love the summer, but I hate the humidity!

Happy Birthday Coco!

Today is my sweet puppy's birthday!

She turns 4 today, and I really can't believe it!

It seems like just yesterday I was picking her out.....

I never thought I would love a dog as much as I love Coco. She is absolutely psycho, but I wouldn't trade her for the world!

Happy Birthday my crazy puppy!

Harry Potter Party and Premiere

Last night was the Harry Potter premiere! My friend Abby had a Harry Potter party beforehand, so I went there and then to the theater to see the movie.

On Wednesday, I went over Abby's house to make owl cake pops. This was my first time making "decorative" cake pops, and I think they turned out awesome! They tasted great too :)

These cookies are the absolute best! They turned out so cute, and they taste amazing.

I ordered this 9-3/4 t-shirt specifically for the party/premiere. I think it's really cute!

I got to the party early to help set up (and also get pictures of all the cute decorations!).

This is Abby's sister Grace with the Harry Potter cardboard cutout. Her shirt even says "Future Hogwarts Scholar" :)

Abby printed out posters for everyone at the party!

I love this Skele-Gro bottle!

Floo powder by the fireplace:

Abby and I with Harry Potter

This sign was in the bathroom :)

My friend Erin dressed up as Luna Lovegood. I loved her outfit!

My friend Katie and I

The wizards.....aka the people who dressed up :)

The Muggles......aka the people who didn't dress up

The party was so much fun! Abby really went above and beyond with the little details, which made the party so unique.

I loved the movie too. I didn't cry as much as I thought I was going to, but now I'm just sad that Harry Potter is forever finished. I've loved seeing all of the movies and reading all of the books over the last 10 years. If you don't want to know how the movie ends, don't read ahead!
