Copenhagen, Denmark-outfit details!
Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend, weather was beautiful here in NY, we even got to go swimming in our friends pool! I know I mentioned I would start posting about my trip and of course life has been a bit hectic since returning. Finally just uploaded some of the 2000+ pictures we took on our camera. Still working on editing them and sorting through the better ones. I thought I would share some that I have from my iPhone as well as include some outfit details!
Copenhagen will always hold a special place in our hearts. My husbands mother, Birgit, was from Denmark and raised right outside of Copenhagen. She met my father-in-law and moved to the states where they then raised my husband and his brother. Since Birgit’s entire family was still in Denmark they made yearly visits with the kids while they were growing up. My husband was very lucky to have the experiences he did while in Denmark. Since he had been going there pretty much every summer he was able to make such a great network of friends as well. We would like to continue the tradition of bringing our future children there and giving them similar experiences to what Thomas had. My brother-in-law, Adam, made his way to Denmark 4 years ago to join the Danish Army. This was our 2nd time visiting since he has made the move, and of course he was back a number of times to the states as well over those 4 years. Family means the world to me. I think that growing up and sharing experiences with loved ones is important and what life is all about. Thomas has no family in the states anymore. His mother and father have both passed away and his brother is now living in Denmark, for what looks like the rest of his life, if not for a number of years still. I have the privileged of being able to see my parents and close relatives by planning a weekend to drive home. For Thomas is it a long plane ride away. We plan on making Denmark an every other year vacation to keep a close connection with his family. It is just as important to me as it is to him.
So with that said, this part of our trip was amazing! I have been to Copenhagen a couple of times now, both times before were in the winter. Now, don’t get me wrong, Copenhagen is gorgeous in the winter, but man was it cold. I didn’t mind it too much since they don’t get the intense amounts of snow like we do in New York, but it does get pretty chilly. The last time we went before this trip was during Christmas. It was such a fun experience to see all the traditions and being able to spend quality family time. This time was just so different. We were in Denmark for a total of 14 days. We got to stay with Adam as well as Thomas’ cousin, Christian, and his family. Since Thomas and Adam spent most of their time in Denmark in the summers I would always hear about how amazing Danish summers were. It was never too hot, but warm enough to make a few dips in the water. I was excited to finally get a chance to experience the Denmark that Thomas knew so well. With it being warmer out and sunny we got to see and do so much. We even got to go to the bathing bridge near his grandmothers house to swim. The same bathing house that they would swim at all summer long. Here are just a few pictures from Copenhagen. I plan on writing a few more entries on Copenhagen since we saw and did so many great things. I feel one entry would not do it justice.
Floral dress date night
Hi loves! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. Honestly, Tom and I had plans to do a bunch of things around the apartment and we ended up catching up on sleep and relaxing most of it instead! Yesterday it was so rainy and I love nothing more then having the windows open and listening to the rain, its SO calming. So overall we had a great weekend even if we didn’t get done the things we wished to do, there is always next weekend 🙂
We did go out Saturday night for a little Mexican dinner in town. I decided to get dressed up in this cute floral sleeveless turtleneck dress I bought that has an open back (pictures above). I decided to wear a cute fitted, strappy, crop top underneath it to complete the look. I also did a fun braid in my hair to change it up from my usual down and wavy look. I got my dress at a little boutique in the city but I found a couple cute ones that have the same sort of style that I found here:
TGIF loves!! I hope everyone had a great week! I am soo happy it is almost the weekend! I am so happy to finally be able to post about this great product I have been using. I wanted to wait … Continue reading
Snow Day Outfit
I hope everyone had a great weekend and Happy Monday :). If you were on the east coast I know you were most likely snowed in! I loved having a snowy weekend. Tom and I just stayed in and watched movies and cuddled, my favorite thing to do on the weekends when its nasty outside LOL. We also got a chance to make a bunch of healthy meals and juice a lot. It was crazy on Saturday and then Sunday came around and the snow stopped and it was so sunny and nice out, so we decided to do a little photo shoot. I love nothing more then wearing my giant warm Sorel boots, big comfy sweaters and scarves. Tom got me this scarf in the pictures for Christmas, its made of recycled cashmere from a woman who hand makes them all to order at a cute little shop in Peekskill. These mirrored sunglasses are so great, you must check out ZeroUv.com, they have awesome prices and really cute options. I also thought it would be fun to show off one of my favorite hairstyles. I just love braids (especially fishtails!) and they are such an easy way to add a little something extra to any outfit! I hope you all have a great week and enjoy your Monday!

Ipsy Glam Bag All Time Faves!
So I have been getting the Ipsy glam bag for 13 months (My November one hasn’t arrived yet!! Fingers crossed it is in my mailbox tonight!) and I have actually discovered and purchased a bunch of full size items from my glam bags. I thought I would put together a list of my all time faves that Ipsy has so kindly introduced me to!
From my first bag in October 2014:
I loved this cleanser so much that I went and ordered it. It smells amazing and is not too harsh on my combination skin. You can find this Indie Lee Brightening Cleaners here.
In December I discovered this awesome hair product:
I am a fanatic about my hair and the products that I use. I tried this Bumble and Bumble hair cream and fell in love and had to buy it to use all the time. It smells amazing too!
I had never heard of Coastal Scents before getting this liner in one of my bags. I have one piece of makeup that I use daily and that is black liquid liner. I have tried so many different brands and will have to say this one is at the top of my list of favorites. It stays on all day long, doesn’t smudge or fade while wearing it. I really recommend this! You cannot go wrong for spending only $2.95 on this either and it comes in a few different colors.
Another hair product that I purchased full size. This smells amazing!! That is the main reason I purchased it hahah. Yes it works nice too but the smell is what had me purchase it. You can find this Eva-NYC Up All Night Spray here. You can get it in a 1oz bottle or 8oz bottle which I love. So you have the option of sampling it to see if you really like it or not!
I had never heard of this brand before. I wasn’t a huge fan of the color but wanted to try it to see how I liked the formula and it really did stay on long and was super shiny. Gel Effect by Aurora comes in so many colors so I decided to buy a few. I also just saw that they are running a 30% off sale right now on their site!!
Did you discover brands from Ipsy that you never knew existed before?? If so which ones are your new faves?
Amazing Tarte Cosmetic deals on QVC!!
This foundation is normally $39 just on its own. QVC’s special includes the Amazonian Clay Foundation AND a limited edition brush. This brush is a MUST for applying this foundation. I purchased the brush that Tarte sells and it retails for $34. This awesome deal above is just $39!!! Plus QVC allow you to make payment plans if needed. I cannot wait for mine to arrive!
If you have never tried Tarte Cosmetics before I highly recommend getting this gift set! It lets you try out their best products. This QVC special, that includes everything in the picture above, is only $59.94!! The LipSurgence alone cost $24 each and they include 5 of them! If you don’t buy this for yourself this would also make a great gift with the holidays coming up!
Head over to QVC and check out the other Tarte products they have on sale!
I have always been a makeup nut. I love to try different brands and products and over the years Tarte has become one of my all time faves! I love that their products have a ton of natural ingredients in them that also help nourish your skin. I have been obsessed with their Amazonian Clay foundation for years. It is my go to for every day wear. It has great coverage and stays on all day long AND doesn’t make my skin super greasy by the end of the day. They say that is due to the amazing benefits of the clay. I get emails from QVC when they have specials on Tarte because their specials are too good to pass up so I wanted to share them with you guys!!
What is your favorite makeup brand and have you ever tried Tarte before??
