Green for the Holidays (and a REALLY amazing giveaway!!)

Happy Monday, lovelies!  Today I wanted to share with you another outfit idea for the holiday season.  I love red and always tend to gravitate towards it this time of year, but I am here to tell you that green is a fantastic alternative if you are looking to change up your holiday ensembles a bit.  I never thought I would wear this skirt outside of the summer months, but paired back to black and leopard, it feels totally appropriate and perfectly festive for the holiday season!  In fact, I’m thinking of wearing this exact outfit to an even I have this week!!  But I want to know, would you all dare to wear neon green (tulle!) during the winter months???

And be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for a giveaway you don’t want to miss!!!

And now for the giveaway…

If you have followed my blog for a while, then you might remember that I used to wear eyelash extensions.  But after having worn them for several months, I developed a severe allergic reaction to the glue.  And the end result (besides being totally traumatized by the whole ordeal)? Pretty much all of my eyelashes fell out.  And it. was. awful.  Fortunately for me, it was right around this time that I discovered Younique 3D Fiberlash Mascara.  And let me tell you-this stuff is awesome!  I am so hooked on it.  Far less expensive and time consuming than eyelash extensions, you can control the intensity, and you can wear it with or without your current mascara.  People ask me all of the time if I wear eyelash extensions-I am telling you, this stuff is a miracle in two convenient little tubes!

And today (because it’s your lucky day!), I am teaming up with my friend Kim Rosen to give away a set of Younique 3D Fiberlash mascara to one lucky reader (click on the rafflecopter link below)!!!  Winner will be announced Tuesday, December 23rd.

Good luck and happy Monday!!!!!!

YOU GUYS!  I am back!  My apologies for the radio silence on the blog last week!  I was traveling for work and on vacation and between our crazy adventures and some unexpected technical issues with my memory card (I lost all of the outfit posts I had planned!), I just couldn’t get any content up.  But boy did I miss you all and couldn’t be happier to be back and sharing today’s post!

If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, you can follow me here), then you know I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot with the incredibly talented LC Photography a couple of weeks ago.  I had such an amazing time working with them and was so happy to finally have the perfect opportunity to shoot my beloved neon tulle skirt from The Girl That Loves.  Tulle is all the rage right now and The Girl That Loves has an assortment of incredible colors and styles that are also extremely comfortable.  So if you are looking to indulge your girly, flirty side, then be sure to check them out!  And if you are in Utah, the be sure to check out LC Photography-they are the best!IMG_4231 IMG_3782 IMG_3791 IMG_3867 IMG_4164

Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by, and happy Monday!
