🍂My Favorite Fall Go-To Lip Combo 💋


Fall is here to stay, and my favorite part about it is bold but season appropriate makeup! This time, I’m sharing my ultimate fall lip combo using none other than Kylie Cosmetics OG Metal Matte lipsticks in the shades Reign and King K. Kylie has released two newer Metal Matte lippies in the shades Dancer and Kymajesty. Kymajesty has been discontinued, but had a lot of negative feedback due to its lack of pigment. There were also a lot of complaints from customers saying that their lipsticks came poorly packaged or even halfway empty. Dancer was released with the Christmas collection and remains on the site.

Price


Kylies Metal Matte lipsticks will run you $18.00 plus tax. This is a great price point for her demographic. Compared to similar lines like Beauty Bakerie where a single Lip Whip, as they call their liquid lipsticks, will run you $20.00 Kylies price fits right in!

Pros


These Beautiful lipsticks are super opaque and dry down to a semi matte finish. Both have amazing pigment, and do not settle into those pesky fine lines you may have in your lips.

Cons

The cons are small, but need to be mentioned. The lipsticks are advertised as a Metal Matte…which simply is inaccurate at best. These don’t dry down to a completely matte finish which doesn’t bother me, but I know it is something a prospective buyer would like to know. My only other con is the fact its Kylie Jenner. I know a lot of people refuse to support the Jenner/Kardashian family and that is perfectly fine. I’ve also stated before that I will not be purchasing from her again as I feel like she doesn’t really listen to her fan base and customers and that’s just not a person I want to give my hard earned money to.


These liquid lipsticks together create the perfect bold, but Autumn appropriate, ombre` lip!

Wedding Chronicals: Update

Okay my loves, I’ve officially been engaged 1 full year! You know what that means? No? Well neither do I. The plan was to have a long-ish engagement because honestly I just wanted to experience every part of the process long enough to appreciate it. So I’m sure you’re wondering what the update is and… there is no update. I’m still just as confused now as I was in the beginning, when I first attempted to start planning my wedding! Today I just plan to run through the general thoughts and my process so far.

Picking A Date

Typically I think people have a general idea of when they’d like to get married. Wether it be on an anniversary or a date they already had in their mind. I’m not one of those people. While I’d love to get married on our dating anniversary which is August 24th, I feel like that is just too far away and I want to have it sooner. The thought so far is maybe a day between or around one of our birthdays (April 7th and May 1st) my only reservations with this is that all of our birthdays, fiancé , our children and myself included are way too close. Fitting a wedding anniversary in so close could make it super hectic to celebrate in the future. I haven’t come up with another solution for this just yet, but I’ll keep you all posted.

Big or Small Wedding

I’ve never wanted a ‘traditional’ wedding. So the big fancy wedding in a huge chapel with friends and family close and distant isn’t even an option. We have both decided more than likely we will elope and then go on our honeymoon and have a celebration with close family and friends closer to our one year anniversary.

Location

As you can tell already, I have no idea what the hell I’m doing! Honestly it’s sad but super hilarious at the same time. If you know me, I’m a more spare of the moment type of girl. If I want something or want to do something, I may wait a few days for planning but that’s it. I’ve always felt like if I had something on my mind and didn’t just do it it would just never happen. And my feelings are sadly the same towards our wedding. So far we have worked up the options of going to Vegas and having a super fun random wedding, simply going to the local courthouse, or going to another states courthouse.

Dress Choice

So, I’m sure you can tell by now I won’t be in one of those huge extravagant wedding dresses. While they are beautiful, and I’ve definitely toyed with the thought, I just don’t see it. I have a few dresses that I’ve seen that I’ve really liked. But nothing that I’ve been able to 100% say “that’s it. That’s my dress”. My mother is pushing for me to go more traditional of course. Her wedding was so beautiful, but our styles just clash. While I’d be perfectly fine finding a simple sleek gown, I’m sure she’d like to see me in a more traditional wedding dress with lace an pearls. I can’t wrap my head around getting an extravagant dress for ONE day. And not even the full day, JUST THE WEDDING! Where in my mind at least, if I get a simple gown I’m sure I’d be able to wear it again at some point in time ( hope you can tell I’m not thinking traditional white or even Cream). But here are the dresses I’ve been eyeing:


So all in all I’m not exactly lost, but I don’t have a plan either. And with us moving home soon, I’m sure I won’t have a full plan until after Christmas . But, the best part of all this? The wedding is one day. Soon, I will have the man of my dreams last name, and we will live the rest of our happily ever after. What could be an anxiety attack waiting to happen is calm, because my very best friend is by my side already through thick and thin.

Hello Gorgeous !💋 My Road To Body Positivity

Hello everyone, you all don’t know… but I’ve struggled with accepting myself at every weight I’ve been through my life. Before I had my daughter, I was pretty content with my size. I was curvy but felt I was perfect to me and that was all that mattered. Thought time I grew problems with my weight due to a toxic relationship I was in where I was always put down for my size. 

After being in that relationship, I questioned my appearance and attractiveness due to weight. I’ve never been a size small and at the time it seemed everyone around me including the media was glorifying a small slender frame and looking down on anyone who was larger. This created a fight within myself. On one side I wanted to be as thin as everyone else that was praised so highly for their slender bodies. And on the other side I wanted to be happy with myself no matter what size I was. 


Well I found out I was pregnant with my daughter and gained about 20 lbs. I was in shambles. I was disappointed in myself for gaining weight, not realizing the weight I gained was mostly from my daughter and not just me eating crazy.  I slowly started to see myself as pretty and was content with my size. My weight has always fluctuated and never been stable. When I learned I was pregnant with my son I was okay with my body, but still self conscious of how other people saw me. After giving birth for the second time I was surprisingly happy that I was down to my pre pregnancy weight within the first three months postpartum. 


This timeline leads me up till now. As of now, I’m content with my body and size. But I do still have times where I wonder what others think and don’t wear certain things because of that. I’m planning on using my blog more to show my journey of falling back in love with myself. I love being plus size. Is it a struggle sometimes when it comes to clothes and certain trends? Yes. But, the only way to really fall in love with myself and be carefree is to step outside of my box and do things differently than I have been doing. Trying new styles. Trying risky styles that I’d never grab for on a regular day. And I’m ready for the challenge! I hope you all follow me on this journey and potentially learn something as well!


Thank you for reading! 

XOXO, Lynn❤️
