Hey lovelies! It's been so hot around here that I don't even feel like doing my makeup. So I've been sticking to neutral eyes and bold lips most of the time. I felt like doing smokey brown eyes on Friday though and achieved the look I wanted with my beloved Urban Decay Naked Palette. I'm sure I've done looks similar to this before but it just works. I love using MAC Dirty GPS as base for looks like this. Makes the whole look more put together.

What are your plans this weekend? I spent most of Friday evening with a close friend (dinner, shopping, drink). Also hubby and I are doing some home reno (building a bedroom in our basement) so we're working mostly. Hope you all enjoy your weekend.

When it's hot out, I style my hair away from my neck and face. I'm a huge fan of braided styles especially when the temperature rises. I did a half back side french braid. By half french braid I mean you only add hair from one side (the bottom in this case) instead of both sides. If you know how to french braid you'll understand what I mean. I started from right above my left ear and ended right above my neck. I used a couple of bobby pins to hold it in place and added a tiny bit of hair spray. This style looks best on wavy hair so use a curling iron or flat iron to add waves if yours is straight (I have naturally wavy hair). I have a LOT of hair and this style still held all day! I always have better luck when I come up with styles last minute, lol!


Hope you like the hair of the day too :)

    Cute hairstyle. I can't wait until my hair is more grown out and I can do cute things like that again.

    Also, you've totally put me in the mood to do a brown smoky eye!

    As for my weekend... Friday my daughter and I went to the beach, today we took a snuggly nap together and then had dinner with friends, and then tomorrow I'll get donuts for the family for breakfast, and then later in the afternoon my BF and I are taking my daughter to the park. Low key weekend :)
