Summer Dress Trends

Monday, May 15, 2017

 I don't know about you dolls but I am so ready for summer!!!!! The weather here has been less than desirable but that isn't going to bring me down! I'm teaming up with Tobi to bring you my favorite summer dress styles! I'm always wearing dresses for the summer since I can't wear shorts to work and well...I just really love dresses! 

The first rose pink dress is one of my faves! I love wearing flowy dresses that aren't too fitting to hide my hips. I have bigger hips and although I love my body sometimes my hips can overtake it. One of my favorite summer trends is the bell sleeve! This dress has all my favorite!!!  

The second dress is perfect for parties, going out with friends, and a date during the daytime! I love anything off the shoulder and it's a big trend for summer 2017! I have seen nothing but off the shoulder tops, dresses, rompers, everything! I also love this dress because you can also wear jeans or leggings with it. It's a little on the shorter side if you are over 5'9'' like me. But nothing like a nude pair of biker shorts or spanx of help with that problem! 

Lastly, we have the wrap dress! I'm in love with this print so much! They have a matching set in this too and I'm totally obsessed with it! This dress is once again perfect for all summer occasions! The material of this dress is very luxurious too! Like I would feel comfortable not wearing a slip and just nude undergarments. But yes! Once again obsessed with this print! 

I'm so happy to be putting up more fashion post again! It's been a long time since I have. I almost forgot how much I love doing this! My blogaversity is coming up in July and can you believe it will be 7 years!!!!! I started in 2010 on a different blog called Style It In Heels! I changed blogs because I didn't wear heels a lot and I felt weird having the name after that haha! I don't know why I didn't just change the name of it...I completely switch over blogs....I'm so indecisive...anyway! Let me know what your favorite dress style is for summer!!!

February IPSY Glam Bag Review

Friday, February 24, 2017

Ohmygod! Second Ipsy Glam Bag and it's 10/10! 
I'm already loving this whole Ipsy thing! I know I was late on the bandwagon and I don't know how I lived without it!!! This whole bag was only $10!!!!!! If you'd like to join you can always use my code! https://www.ipsy.com/new?cid=ppage_ref&sid=link&refer=10gbnd This code is just a referral code. I think it will give me 250 points (whatever that means lol) but only if you join too! I know when I joined I was on a waitlist at first but with this code I'm pretty sure you won't be on a waitlist! 

Now on to this months bag! 

Luxie Rose Gold Blush Brush 514 : $18 (and the bag all together is $10 which means I already got my moneys worth plush more!)
The first thing I was really excited about was the Luxie Brush! I always get excited when I get new brushes in my collection and ohmylanta this one is amazing! I've never had a brush so soft before! It's PERFECT (and I mean perfection!) to put blush on!!!!! Glides on like butter! They are also vegan and cruelty free which is an added bonus! The bristles are so soft on your face! I love this and would without a doubt recomend to a friend! 5/5 

I love NYX as a brand in whole! You can't beat this price, quality and color! I've been looking for a new red lipstick and this is it! I like it because it has a bit of a berry magenta color to it too. The NYX butter lipsticks are perfect for winter, which I'm going through right now! They are like lipbalm but in a lipstick form! 5/5

Omg....I just checked the price of this and if this is a full size which I think it is, then just OMG...So good! I'm obsessed with the color! The velvet texture is 100%! The lavender color is perfect for my skin color! You can put this really anywhere! Eyeshadows, highlighters, on your collarbone even your legs!!! I'm pretty sure Luna by Luna is a new brand so go and give them some love! I really want to try out there eyeshadows soon too because the color looks amazing! 5/5

Biobelle #StayGorgeous and #IWokeUpLikeThis : $4.99 each
These all natural sheet masks are so good! I tried #StayGorgeous and absolutely loved it!!! My skin felt great after using it! It didn't feel sticky which I always look for since I feel like alot of sheet masks are sticky after you use them. My skin felt smooth and hydrated which is great since I have really dry skin! 5/5

Now, after you've seen how many my bag was so far I was a little disappointed with this one! Only because I felt like the pan could have been bigger! Especially with a bronzer and your using a huge brush. I couldn't fit a brush and felt like it was useless to use....BUT!!!!! With that being said I did use it as a nose contour which I did like. I could also use it as a base eyeshadow too! I know how popular this product is, I just wished the pan size was bigger. 3/5 

So all together my Glam Bag should really cost $56.98!!!!!!!! (That's minus Elizabeth Mott one. I'm pretty sure every other product was in it's full size) I'm still in awe with how amazing my Glam Bag was this month! I really loved all the products and can't wait to get my March bag! I give this bag a 10/10 hearts!!!

Update : here's my very late video on the glam bag where I talk a little more about the products and how they look!

Valentines Day Too Faced Peach Palette Makeup Tutorial

Monday, February 13, 2017

Happy Valentines Day my loves!!!! I hope everyone is having an a great day (single or in a relationship!) I filmed a Valentines Day tutorial about a week ago and finally uploaded it! I knew I wanted to use the Too Faced Peach Palette and I wanted to do a Valentines inspired look. I thought it would be perfect! I ended up really loving this look! I was really happy with it! I love doing a cut crease that isn't too harsh! Just enough to give the look color.

Valentine's Day Favorites!

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

Valentines Day is right around the corner and you know what that means...(other then singles awareness day which I'll be participating in once again this year) LOVE! Love and gifts! Gifts to show your love! So why not show your love with my favorites!!!!

1.  Kendra Scott has been one of my favorite jewelry designers for a while now! She's the new classic! Every time I wear one of her pieces I feel like I'm apart of a secret club and when I see someone else wearing them I get so excited! The 'Elisa' necklace is something I've had my eyes on for a long time. It's perfect with every outfit and the perfect gift for jewelry lovers!

2.  Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet is one of my all time favorite perfumes! I love floral scented perfumes and this one is the best! Not only does it smell amazing but the bottle itself is so cute and so girly! 

3.  Nothing says Valentine's Day more than a pink lace dress! Perfect for casual dates in the afternoon or going out with your best friends! Dress it up with a cute pair of nude pumps or make it casual with a cute pair of girly flats. Lace is just so romantic and put it in pink and I'm buying it!

4.  I have been eyeing these flats for about a week and a half now and I'm still in love with them! The perfect way to dress up an outfit! They are super girly and chic and I'm pretty sure Chloe has a pair just like them but these aren't hundreds of dollars. You can stay fashionable while not burning a hole in your wallet! 

5.  Mantra bracelets are the newest bracelet trend! They give you a confidence boost while being fashionable! Plus this is my favorite quote! 

6.  Off the shoulder tops are EVERYWHERE! It's the perfect transition piece for the end of winter into spring, going to summer!! I can't wait for summer and can't wait to wear some new off the shoulder pieces! 

7.  One of my favorite lip products is the Fresh Advance Lip Therapy balm! No doubt THE BEST lip product for chapped lips. I put lip balm or chapstick of some sorts on before bed every night! I've used a few and this one is my favorite!!!! 

8.  Last but certainly not least, Urban Decay 'Safe Word'. My favorite nude lipstick!!!! Every time I wore this color when I worked at Sephora I'd sell it! Everyone wanted it because it's the best kept secret nude lipstick shade! 

That is it! Let me know in the comments below which are your favorites!!!

Lots of Love

P.S. : have you noticed something different?! YES, my url is now theelizzabethhope.com! Long story short, I used to have elizzabethhope.com and forgot to renew it and someone else took it!!!!! Now they are trying to sell it for like $750 which is NOT COOL! I was so upset but I just added the "The" and now it's theelizzabethhope.com! 

January IPSY Glam Bag Review

Sunday, January 22, 2017

       Today's I'm here with something a little different! I'm going to review my first ever Ipsy Glam Bag! I was so excited to get this in the mail this month. I finally decided to hope on the glam bag train and I'm already super excited! My bag came with 5 different products. Two (I guess you can say) are full sized, the nail polish and the two masks.

Pretty Women nail polish in "I'm Not A Ballerina" $7.99 (Check it out HERE)
    The perfect pink nail polish! I'm 100% getting more nail polishes from Pretty Women. The brush is amazing, which is something I look for in nail polishes. Since I don't get my nails done every week or really every month (honestly it's been since May....) and honestly I can paint my nails and have them look semi professional so the perfect brush is key!

Love Recipe : Aloe and Acai Berry Sheet Mask $1.50 each (Check it out HERE)
I don't think I've ever felt a soft sheet mask like this one! It didn't feel paper thin like it was going to break as I opened it up and for $1.50 and I think these were a hit!!!! My fave out of the two was the Acai Berry!

ModelCo Blush in Peach Bellini (Check it out HERE) $22 for a full sized.
Just checked and I have a 3.5g of this blush and the full sized one is 8g.
I'm totally obsessed with this blush! It has a nice glowy effect to it as well. I think the color is perfect and the fact that is has almost like a pink highlight tone to it makes it even better! 100% recommend! The pigmentation is amazing as well!

Smashbox BB Cream (Full sized $39) Check it out HERE
Ughhhh I wanted to love this so much more then I do! Especially now after seeing my face on screen! It didn't blend well at all, I didn't like the texture it was giving my face and I only liked it after I put translucent powder and concealer on. I took off that I don't want any more bb creams and foundations in my glam bag because I don't think it's worth it for a two time use product. I wasn't so camera ready....(get it because it called camera ready bb cream)

Manna Kadar Cosmetics "Fantasy 3-in-1 eyeshadow" : $19 (Check it out HERE)
Another one...I wanted to like this so much more then I did!!!!!! The pigmentation just wasn't there and I wished it was!!! I'm going to give it another try to use some MAC Fix+ on it soon.

Overall I really loved my bag even though I had a few products I didn't completely love. I'm so excited to get my next one in February and you can 100% bet I'll be doing more reviews! But for right now check out my video now!

Lots of Love,
