mondays with mark: giveaway-makeup or jewlery

It's October and time for another giveaway. The spa giveaway from last month will go to Dina. Thank you so much for helping with shelterbox! She will receive a $25 gift card to the spa of her choice. So thanks again! Also, last month I spent time raising money for not only shelter box, but Susan G. Komen. Since they ran so close to each other shelterbox was not as successful, unfortunately. I was a little bummed about that. I did raise (with the help of my awesome coworkers) $630 for Susan G. Komen. So YAY! If you still want to help please do! Go to shelterbox or to my team page to help out. Let me know if you need links. You can also find them in my previous posts.

Ok on to the contest. I want to try something new. BTW I'm really into trying new things! lol. Had this conversation with someone the other day. I tried mussels for the first time. Not bad! The contest, right... this month I want to change up the rules.

You have a chance of winning makeup or jewelry from my mark store.

Makeup: mark I-Mark Metallics Custom Pick Eye Shadow in the color of your choice! There are 6 different colors, you may choose one. I have heard great things about this eye shadow. I will be ordering myself some colors too. I have not tried this out yet. I heard that it is comparable to MAC eyeshadows. had a review and said some great things. I posted that review up a while back on facebook. Check it out.

Also I will giveaway one of my favorite blushes mark Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush. It's a great blush. Great pigmentation, not a lot of fall out, and again have heard great things about it from other bloggers. There are 7 different colors to choose from- you may choose one color. Also comparable to MAC blushes.

Jewelry: A necklace from mark. I wanted to bring to light that mark had other items and not just makeup. I love the jewelry. They are always on trend and timeless. This necklace is beautiful and will go great with various outfits. It will definitely dress up a casual look. Also it is still polished enough for an office atmosphere.

Of course, you can not have both makeup and jewelry. I'm not that fortunate to be giving away all of that lol. I love yall. But i still cannot give both. You can choose either the makeup (blush and eyeshadow) or the necklace! Both are wonderful. Check out how to enter below.

Nina + Bryan Meadow Creek Farm Wedding

We started the day with sun however we heard the rumbling thunder in the background during the ceremony and started to sprinkle during the reception. It was a humid September day and was sunny outside when I walked into the wedding venue. Bridesmaids laughter, sweet music, and popping of champagne were starting around the Bride's room. The girls were in their matching floral monogrammed robes and helping each other get their makeup done. They looked stunning!

My favorite part was their first look. Nina and Bryan have such a sweet relationship and they celebrated with so much love and joy through the day. I adored how sweet and caring they were during the day, he couldn't keep his eyes off of her during the first look. And she teared up, but had a huge smile standing with him during the first look. It was the best! I loved capturing them!!!

It was truly an honor to be capturing their day! It was such a beautiful wedding! Bryan and Nina were surrounded by so much love and joy fr…

my look back on 2017

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in. I love documenting our memories and being able to look back, reflect and cherish all of these moments.  It is the best part of this blog. I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN! I hope ya'll had a great year as well and if not... there is much to look forward in the New Year! It's a new beginning!

I'm probably going to write a long blog so sorry! 
Our year was full of so many joyful experiences. Our Winter, we received snow and Haylee got to go sledding for the first time. Haylee loved it and we had lot of fun with her. She did not want to come back inside. Souwan celebrated with a low key birthday at home with his new table grill. The Rowan Museum had an awesome exhibit on Cheerwi…

outfit of the day: western denim shirt

What I wore:Andrew's Co. denim shirt, Old Navy shorts, Thrifted belt, Charming Charlie watch, Kay Jewlers pearl necklace, Belk's pearl earrings, Old Navy sunglasses, and Unisa sandals. (engagement ring: gift =) lol)

denim shirt by lisaanatha featuring short shorts
This denim shirt is very similar to J.Crew's western denim shirt here. (And pictured above) I'm not wearing the J.Crew's denim shirt, however I made an awesome find going through old boxes of clothes my mom had in her basement. A lot of clothing worn in the 80s and 90s are making it in today's fashion. I also found it humorous Zach and Kelly, from Saved by the Bell (show i loved from the 90s) , sported these denim shirt looks. Do you guys remember that?! Don't let go of this staple piece. I think it has been a summer trend, but it can easily transfer to fall and winter must haves too! In the winter I would wear this under a sweater for a warm, but chic look. Stay posted for that outfit of the day.…
