Hello loves & HAPPY FRIDAY!! What are y'all doing this weekend?! 

Ok, a week and a half ago I was on my Instagram story telling you guys about this amazing makeup I just tried from The Perfect Face! (This should sound familiar to most of you because I had a jillion emails come in after posting the video clips!) 

I have always had a love/hate relationship with makeup. I want to be fully covered, yet natural looking. I have struggled with that balance my entire life!! I have extremely oily skin, and growing up would often look orange an hour after applying my makeup because of my oils! And then I'd have to go to the bathroom, try to cover it with powder, which would make my face look cakey, and it would result back to orangey oiliness within an hour. (I'm not kidding. People would make fun of me for it. And it lasted for 6 years.. It. Sucked.) 

Then one day (hallelujah + pwaise the lawd) Utah Valley got a Sephora and I basically moved in! Being able to test out different makeup/products (alongside my proactiv face wash) saved me and my orange self. (God bless you sephora & all your samples!) 

Fast forward a couple of years to NOW and I finally understand makeup! I still have problems with makeup (like I occasionally turn myself orange and mess up,) but hey, I'm getting better with each passing day! 

The biggest struggle I've had with makeup this last year is that I always seem to look younger than I'd like. I'm a married woman, and want to look/feel like a woman! (My body is similar to a 12 year old boys shape/size & my face looks about 18 years old.) These aren't bad things!.. But some days, I just really want to look & feel like a mature, empowered, sexy woman. 

Rewind two weeks ago and the ups guy drops a package off from The Perfect Face. (Makeup!) I'm going to be honest, I'm wasn't  expecting much, but I was excited to try it!

The next morning I use the entire line while getting ready and I instantly started noticing differences!! A little went a long way with EVERYTHING! All of the makeup had incredible coverage without looking cakey, and my face was practically glowing! (If you saw my Instagram story from that day, you'll understand what I mean by glowy!) 

When Chase saw me after I had the makeup on, he realized something was different. Which is a huge deal! Since when do guys notice things like that?! NEVER! 

I gained something very important from this makeup. Somehow, after it was all applied, I looked more like a woman. (& I wasn't even wearing my vs bombshell.) I don't really know how to explain it, but I did. I could see it, my husband could see it, I was rocking this hot confidence for the rest of the day, it was amazing! It's exactly what I've been looking for this past year! <3

Just a quick background on The Perfect Face: this is the makeup that is used for the Miss USA pageants. It's created to look fresh throughout the entire day, cover fully, and last a lifetime. 

I can honestly say I love every single one of these products. I wanted to share my favorite three with you guys today! The highlighter, the blush, and the lipstick!  

The Highlighter has the most incredible shine. I swept it over my nose and cheeks once and that was all I needed! Same with the blush. Three sweeps across my cheeks and I was golden! The lipstick is my absolute favorite though. It has these brown tones in it that are truly beautiful.. I wear it every day now! I also think the coloring in the blush and lipstick are key factors to making me look more woman like. I could be wrong, but I think there's a high possibility it could be these two products! 

Below I've linked everything I'm currently using from The Perfect Face. If any of you guys are interested in trying this line out, you're in luck! I've teamed up with TPF & anyone who orders makeup from TPF can get 10% off with code "BRIT" at check out! 

I 100% LOVE this line & know you guys will too!! <3

Sunday best rocking our new Hush Puppies! We're kind of in love with our Hush Puppies shoes. (And each other, but we won't get into that right now!) (;  

When it comes to buying clothes/styling outfits, we always consider how comfortable the item is, then the looks of the item! (Comfort first ALWAYS!) These Hush Puppies definitely pass our test! 

We will be buying a few more shoes from this brand throughout the year! We just love em.

Hope you all had a wonderful Sunday!! xx|HEA

 What's up peeps?! <3 

We just got back home from the Zermatt in Midway and absolutely loved it! (We'll put a post up of our adventure soon!) 

While we were there, we ventured out to one of our favorite places in Utah (Park City) to get in some fine dinning & shopping! First of all, we have to tell you about this incredible restaurant we went to called Riverhorse!!!! It's located on Main Street, and it was DIVINE! 10/10 would recommend for a hot date night or a celebration! (We ordered the surf & turf + the macadamia nut crusted Alaskan halibut. Both were heaven on earth.) 

After dinner, we shopped on main for a while because we were so STUFFED! (Gotta work off that din din!) All the things we bought/were drawn to were deep colored, kinda like our outfits above! Very neutral & casual. And let's be honest for a second, at this point, we are the definition of casual! 

Our favorite shops up there are Prospect, Flight, and Cake!  (&& the Rocky Mountain Chocolate factory, but that one is a given!) 

Hoping you're all having a lovely week! Thanks for stopping by! xx|HEA

Happy weekend lovers! xx Hoping you all enjoy your weekend as much as I enjoy my sequin, weekend tee! (I seriously am in lurve with this outfit..)

Speaking of weekend, does anyone have fun plans?! <3 I have a few! (; Add me on Snapchat to follow along! Username: BritAndrus!

Hello loves! <3 I'm sorry I've been MIA the last little while! Between pnemonia, my dads funeral, and the move, (which is currently still underway) life has gotten extremely busy!  

Before I get back to packing, I had to share this gorgeous lace number with you all! I got it from Vici Collection, and it's definitely a new favorite! (Currently it's sold out, but it should be restocked soon! xx) This dress has a gorgeous shine to it and an extremely flattering fit!  &&, Like I mentioned in my last post, Lace is one of my favorite ways to begin transitioning my closet back into spring! Let the sun shine loves! xx

Shop a few of my favorite lace selections below! <3

If yesterdays posts didn't give it away, than this Lace Blouse surely will. I have spring fever! <3

One of my favorite ways to begin transitioning my closet into spring is 1. Get rid of anything I haven't worn in a year. (You too! Seriously. You DONT need it!) 2. Wash & steam my clothes so everything is fresh & clean. & 3. Hop online and start browsing new arrivals! This time of year I find myself shopping for blouses, lace tops/dresses, and pastels. I'll start wearing the blouses & the lace items immediately, but hold off on the pastels until March/April. (Depending on Utahs bipolar weather.)

Below are some of my favorite finds/items I've purchased this month! There are a few lace dresses that are KILLER and their price is on point! xx 

M A I L L O T

At the beginning of every year, one the first purchases I make is my swimsuits for the upcoming season! 

I ALWAYS order my swimmies in January & February. Once Feb./March hits, all the good ones are GONE! For instance, last year I purchased a monokini in January, (Picture attached below) and it was sold out 1 week after I ordered it! (Which is a shame because it's just DARLING!) 

So take this small piece of advice; Shop for your summer sunner now! (and work on your body later.) Jk. (; But really doe. 

Above are all of my favorite suits on the market right now! I'm really crushing on Marysias scalloped suits & Becca swims onesies! (I have two suits from each line and they're honestly the best.) I purchased mine from Everything But Water & I love their selection! They carry the best of the best. Truly a one stop swim shop! 

Hoping this post brings you all sunshine, a vacay, a rockin bod, and of course a new suit! Thanks for stopping by loves! xx

Hey Loves <3 

First off, I apologize for being MIA last week. Thank you all again for your love and support with the passing of my Dad. Your kindness has made a huge difference. <3 I seriously love you all. 

Next on the list, where my CAPRICORNS at?! <3 I just found my new favorite tee and I think everyone needs it! It's an embroidered zodiac sign tee, and tbh I kind of want one in every sign for each month.. (I'm a Capricorn though, so obviously I repped my sign first! + Capricorns always start off the year!) Not only is the "embroidered tee" currently trending, but so are zodiac/astrology signs! Everyone. Go get your sign on. You can find these babies at Project Social T! (And if you're digging the embroidered tee trend, go shop my favorites below! There are 3 that I ordered today, but I really want them all!) 

Lastly, I just struck gold in the biker jacket department! I'm always on the hunt for a good biker jacket that's high quality, looks amazing, and is affordable. As many of you know, I'm in love with All Saints jackets, but I can't justify splurging $800.00 on one thing.. (Plus Chase would literally kill me!) I found this suede biker from Vici Collection (Vici Dolls) and it's my new go to/current favorite jacket! It has everything I've been looking for in a jacket and it's price is on point! <3 It's definitely a steal! And GUESS WHAT?! It keeps getting better! Vici is offering all of my readers 20% OFF their purchase up until midnight! So take advantage Cinderella, & enter code BRIT20 at checkout! xx

Hope you all have a wonderful week! <3 Thanks for stopping by! xx

I'm absolutely smitten with the velvet trend going on right now. <3 I used to be a little hesitant to pair velvet w/ velvet, but after wearing this number I think I'm going to pair it all the time now! 10/10 would reccomend hoping on the velv train!  

Shop a few of my velvet favorites below! xx

Sparkling this NYE in my Alyce Paris dress, while Chase keeps it classy in his HM Cole suit. <3 Alyce Paris & HM Cole are our "go to" for special occasions, their selections are incredible. 

Happy 2k17 loves! Take some time today to write down your goals, dreams, and some words to live by this next year. (In my personal experience, writing can be very powerful..) The world is yours!

 

 

New Year. 

New Feels. 

New Chances. 

Same Dreams.  

Fresh Starts. <3  

 

 

LOVE YOU ALL XX

Peplum Top / Skinny Jeans / Denim Jacket / Booties / Handbag / Cuff / Earrings / Photog: Hunter Fowler

I'm sucker for all things casual, simple, & neutral. So when my eyes met up with this loose fitting peplum top, I was sold! 

Peplums are one of my favorite styles! I LOVE how it shows off that feminine side! They're also a dressier top in my opinion! (Especially fitted peplums! I love the loose fit of this one though, it's so cozy & casual!) If you don't already own a peplum, this one's for you! The loose fit makes it more versatile and can be worn anywhere! To work, a night out, a cuddly weekend.. anything! <3 

I bought this one from my favorite shop as of late, Bella Ella! <3 Their clothes are so cute, and their price point is even cuter! You could say I'm addicted.. but hey, I think it's a good addiction! And no I'm not willing to quit it! xx

I'm incredibly picky with my jeans, and this pair has me SWOONING! I bought these Grey Skinnies from Bella Ella & they just turned into my "go to" denim! I feel like they lift, shape, slim, stretch, and tighten in all of the right areas! They're beyond comfortable & flattering, they're perfection! (And if you ask Chase, they make the booty look all sorts of heart eye emojis!) Definitely both C & my new favorite! <3 

I also snagged this darling Military Jacket from Bella Ella! I've been on the search for one ever since NYFW where they were trending hard in the streets & the runway! I love how this one fits & has the faux leather sleeves! It definitely stands out amongst others! I find myself wearing it all the time, it goes with everything! The styling options with this baby are endless! 

As for C's jeans + jacket, he's eaqually obsessed! His style has been changing a little bit, and I'm not mad about it! He's been shopping for neutral, comfortable, simple items and obviously it's working for him! (Insert heart eye emojis times a million) Some of you may say this is "grungy" (like his babe-in motto jeans from Hudson) but I think it looks Kanye! (And I mean that in the best possibly way!) YEEZY STEEZY 5EVER!
