Well friends, I’m officially a Denver resident now! My husband and I are all moved in (well, lots of boxes but ya know) and so far we’re loving it! Of course I miss my Dallas friends and family so bad, but other than that life is pretty much perfect here. So if y’all could all move to Denver that would be greaaaaat.

Since I’m officially a homeowner, get excited for some home decor posts in the near future! For now, you can follow along with some of my mini projects in my Instagram Stories. Spoiler alert: right now, I’m repainting a HOT pink room and I still have a turquoise one left!

You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t done Mail Monday in quite a while so most of these packages are a few weeks old (sorry!) It’s been really crazy moving but things are falling back into place and I’m so happy to have some great content lined up for you guys. Get ready for more fashion and beauty, comin’ atcha! For now….let’s celebrate Mail Monday!

Click through for the best and worst mascaras, ranked!The other day I realized I have WAY too many mascaras so instead of just throwing them all out – why not do a review for you guys?! In an ideal world I would have categories and ratings for each thing buuuut that’s not going to happen. Instead, I put all of these on in one afternoon (removing after each application, duh) and wrote down my thoughts. The good news is, I already had notes on most of these mascaras and everything was dead on with what I had written previously so everything here should be accurate! Skip down to number one for my pick for the best mascara I’ve ever used (and yes…it’s drugstore)!

A little too much looks like a *lot* too much, whether we’re talking bronzer or contour so…today I’m here to help!

Hey babes! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend – I sure did! My favorite weekends are the perfect balance of productivity and lounging, which is exactly what I did. I spent most of the day Saturday lounging, put in a few solid hours of work and then Sunday went to see Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2! It was exceptional, of course.

Anyway! I’m sharing a few goodies I got in the mail last week, but first I need your help. I’ve been changing my blog content a bit, but I wanted to see how you guys felt about the shift and give you a chance for any feedback you might have. So if you have just a few quick minutes, I would love your opinion!
