sleep, make-up, and shoes

i slept 12 hours last night and it was glorious. i woke up feeling refreshed, alive, and healthier. that's what a good night's rest can do for you. work's been crazy busy (i even headed back into the office on a sat afternoon to get some stuff done) and honestly, i don't see it calming down until maybe jan? ok enough work talk, let's talk about some make-up and shoes :)

last weekend, i was on the hunt for 2 cute outfits for work b/c 2 execs from our nyc office were coming into town for meetings with our advertising sales group, so we had to dress our best and look sharp. and well, really, just another reason for me to go shopping ;) i had chosen some outfits and then realized i needed some shoes. the below is a compilation from DSW, nordstrom rack, and ebay. love love love my boots!

these are pour la victoire flats i've been wanting for so long. i belive these are from last year's collection that i got from ebay :)

and then this weekend (after a tough week of work) i was in the mood to treat myself :) ok before i dive right into the make-up, let me tell you about alex from HRH collection. i've been following her blog now for about a month or so and looking at it casually. then for some reason thursday night i started watching some of her youtube videos and by friday night i was hooked! she is such a sweet, gorgeous, and fun girl who is super creative! i love her jewelry and cannot wait to purchase some necklaces, rings, and bracelets! i've never really been into her style (boyfriend blazers and such) but she is soo pretty and makes the outfits work! i'm very inspired by her style :) and, while watching her videos, she consistently mentioned her fav lipstick - chanel's rouge coco in gabrielle (a pretty red color). sooo, that lipstick immediately was put on my list of things to get. and below is what i ended up purchasing at my local chanel make-up counter. i only wanted 1 lipstick and what did i come back with? 2 lipsticks, 1 gloss, 1 powder, and 1 perfume. yup, this is how my shopping usually goes..haha.

my friend has this gloss and it's so pretty! this is my new everyday lip color for work :) 
the color is rose pearl

i've always loved lip gloss and lipstick but leaned more towards glosses in college and my early twenties. now i'm discovering and truly appreciating lipsticks. i feel more refined and put together with lipstick :) whenever i apply lipstick i feel like i'm back in the late 1800s or early 1900s...yea i'm crazy like that ;) now don't get me wrong, i still love a good gloss as well!

ok, completely random, but i've been so obsessed with these cheese puffs! i bought them at a whole foods while i was in omaha a few months ago and cannot stop eating these! they're SO good!

and on a final note, i've been lusting after these prada shades. i'm not a huge sunglass type of girl, but i LOVE these and want them so badly!

hope you had a fabulous and relaxing weekend! here's to a great new week :)

good night! xo
