Cute & Affordable Maternity Clothes with Pink Blush Maternity


Hey guys! So today I have a special post for you. I'm loving every second of being pregnant and at 23 weeks this week, I love that I can now enhance my baby bump with cute maternity clothes from Pink Blush Maternity! It was so hard to transition from regular clothes into maternity clothes because everything seemed so expensive and still didn't fit quite right. Well, affordable maternity clothes are here and I'll show you a top that I love (and under $20)!

I will never get over the mint and coral combination. I did a search for "mint" on the Pink Blush Maternity website and saw this gorgeous top! Officially, this is the Mint-Green Chiffon Lace Accent Maternity Blouse. If you're pregnant and in Florida like I am (or any other warm state) you're still going to need something like this in the Fall months! It's on clearance for $19 and is so comfortable! I paired mine with gray maternity leggings and some nude-colored ballet flats.

I love how the chiffon makes it look all fancy on me, haha. The straps are chiffon fabric too, which is nice because it feels soft to the touch and isn't too tight on the shoulders. I also love the length of this blouse. I can easily and comfortably wear leggings underneath. You could also wear your favorite pair of skinny jeans with some cute wedges if you'd like.

The lace detail on this shirt is fabulous. I love it's a slightly darker green than the mint chiffon color. It makes a statement without being too loud.

You can't have a mint shirt without some pink/coral earrings! Here are the Light-Pink Stone Drop Earrings...for only $6! They have a little bit of weight to them but I think they are absolutely darling. I will be rocking these earrings in more than one outfit, for sure!

Wantable August 2014: Accessories

 

Hi friends! So, I finally splurged and signed up for the Wantable Accessories box. I decided on accessories instead of makeup because I REALLY lack in the accessories department. I'm also very lazy and don't go buying them for myself. Getting this sub box is the perfect way to increase my collection while also getting a wide variety of colors, styles, and looks.

Okay, so August was my first box and this was also the box that my friend Rachel from Glow of Grace helped curate. I was soooooo hoping for a scarf in mine but I was quite pleased with the items I did receive.

So in my box were two velvet pouches, each containing 2 pieces of jewelry. I refrained from looking at the sheet that tells me what's in the pouches. Read on to see all of the items I got!

Shanny Necklace - Retail Price: $16
This is a brushed silver tone necklace with geometric designs. I would never in a million years buy this for myself, but I ended up loving it! I wore it to dinner on Saturday with friends and it totally transformed my outfit - black maternity shorts and a black maternity tee. I love how there are 3 pieces on the necklace and how it actually looks on me.

Lola Watch - Retail Price: $26
This is a small round watch with a colorful and stretchy beaded band. I am in LOVE with this watch. The only problem I have is that my wrists are SO tiny and small. I wish I could adjust it. What I might do is where it with some other bracelets to keep it from shifting.

The beads are absolutely adorable and I love the colors so much! This is definitely my style!

Gretchen Earrings - Retail Price: $15
These are silvery hoops with a bamboo design. Simple earrings that add a big touch to any outfit. I used to wear hoops all the time so I'm happy with these. They aren't too heavy and they practically go with any outfit!

Allison Earrings - Retail Price: $12
This is a duet of simple studs. So, it's like I got 5 items instead of 4 because this is technically 2 pairs of earrings. I love simple studs because, again, they can enhance even the most boring outfits. Thankfully, they aren't too big and fit nicely with the rest of my ear piercings. I'm weirdly so in love with the square stone studs!

I'd say that this was a very successful box for my very first one! I hope to be able to keep up with posts every month to show you what you're missing out on!

I would love for you guys to be able to experience this with me! I was so hesitant at first but boy am I glad I took the plunge! Sign up HERE for your first box.

Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette

 

Hey all! So, I have a few Too Faced shadow palettes that I absolutely love. When I saw this online for the first time, I knew I had to have it...of course because it's CAT EYES! Finally, I was able to get it. I had a Sephora gift card, duh! Check out my quick swatches below! Hopefully I'll be able to do a look with these soon. Baby girl is causing some dry patches on the face - sads!

Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette | Kat Stays Polished

So, let me start out by saying how much I LOVE the packaging. I don't own small palettes like these from Too Faced but now that I have one, it's safe to say I'll be collecting more! I also love the magnetic closure. Feels very safe to travel with.

When you open it up, there is a little insert to show you the different looks you can do with this palette. Of course, there is a mirror right behind it.

I also love how the labels are set up. On the left side they have Day, Classic, and Fashion and then on the right it tells you the wet/dry colors, which is awesome. So, onto some basic swatches for you all!

Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette | Kat Stays Polished

Here you've got the highlight shades. I'd actually use Kitten as a base. I'm sure in the past I've gone to a light pink shade for a natural makeup look. Purr is a nice subtle shimmer shade and Meow is a matte shade but a little powdery in my opinion. Use that with a light hand.

Throw these next 3 shades on your lid and you are ready to party! I am very happy to see such gorgeous shades...not that I'm surprised or anything. I would honestly use all 3 of these shades together. Tiger's Eye as my crease color, Pussy Cat as my lid color, and Kitty Glitter as a highlight/inner corner color. It's sheer enough that it wouldn't be too overpowering.

Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette - Tiger's Eye, Pussy Cat, Kitty Glitter | Kat Stays Polished

Here are the wet/dry liner colors. Leopard and Jungle Love have a bit of glitter in them while Panther is your basic black matte shade. Using these wet would really bring out the glitter in the first two shades. As a dry shadow, you can use these to smoke out your looks in addition to using them for lining your eyes.

Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette - Leopard, Jungle Love, Panther | Kat Stays Polished

I can't wait to play around with these shades! I will most definitely be collecting more of these smaller themed palettes from Too Faced.

It's $36 and well worth the price. You can buy it at several locations including Sephora and the Too Faced website.

Wet n Wild Wild Shine - Summer Festival LE Nail Color + GIVEAWAY


Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! I went to Walgreens last week and saw a FULL display with these Wet n Wild Summer Festival polishes and lip crayons. I resisted buying the crayons but I bought 2 sets of polish since they were available. One is for me which you'll see below and one is for one of you! That's right! So check out the swatches and my thoughts and then head down to the Rafflecopter to enter! Good luck!

Ferris-Wheel Romance is of course one of my faves from these 4. Why? Because it's coral, duh! This is a creamy shade that is opaque in just 2 coats.

Next one we have is called Spitfire. Yea, this name is totally appropriate. This is a gorgeous jelly polish that's just so bright and very easy to apply. I used 3 coats for the swatches below.

Are you ready for another jelly? Gyp-Sea Green is another jelly polish. It isn't as opaque as Spitfire, but with 3 coats it still has pretty good coverage.

Chambray Showers.....what more is there to say? This is THE favorite from the collection for me. Great coverage in 2 coats, so creamy, and the perfect shade of blue!
