ICY Glam Halloween Makeup

Thanks to Walmart for partnering with me on this post. All opinions are 100% my own. 
 Hey guys!
It's three days to Halloween and I wanted to share my Icy Glam Makeup look with you all. I love playing around with makeup during Halloween so much more than I do costumes. It's such a fun way to really look different and be creative. I love themed makeup looks too. This look was super easy to create and if you're into icy glam or somewhat fantasy makeup this Halloween, then pick up these three products from Walmart to get it done. Also, I love how Walmart has a breakdown of different types of looks and what products to use achieve the look on their website. It made it so much easier for me to order exactly what I needed. Let’s get into how I did it and how each item served it's purpose. 
First up you'll need an icy eye shadow palette. I loved the colors in this Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow palette in Velvet Crush color and I knew it would give the look I was going for. It blended beautifully and It'll be perfect on all skin shades. It has four colors and each color is labelled as to where to apply it. So, if you’re not confident in applying eyeshadow, this is a great palette that tells you where to put what. Plus, it's Halloween, anything goes right?! I added a little bit more of the darker shade to my upper and lower lids because I wanted it to be more profound. Try this eye shadow if you're going for a mermaid look, it's so pretty.

Next I went in and did a mini wing tip with this wet n wild MegaLiner Liquid Eyeliner in Electric Purple. This really helped to compliment my lid and added an extra fullness to my eyes. I also lined my lower lids with this liner to compliment the eye shadow. 
 Finally, this NYX Professional Makeup Face & Body Glitter in Violet is a must for your fantasy/icy look. It served two purpose for my look. I added it to my cheeks to really take this look to the next level and I also tapped it all over my lipgloss (try this lipgloss), to finalize my lips. I loved how it shined beautifully in the dark. OMG I was glistening all evening and into the night. I didn't need to reapply and I wore the entire makeup for about 4 hours. 
I absolutely loved this look and the items are used are inexpensive yet quality. I ordered them from Walmart and got them on next day shipping, which is amazing. You still have time to do so, too.
Thanks for reading, loves. I'd love to see your Halloween looks so tag me in them on Instagram (@styleweekender). 
Happy Halloween.



Almost There: Preparing For Baby's Arrival

This post is in partnership with Walmart. All opinions are 100% my own. 
Hey guys!
I'm back at it again and I'm in full mama mode prepping for #BabyOliver's arrival. I still can't believe I call myself mom, mama, or even say the words, my baby! Pretty soon she will be here and I have to be ready. My brain is in full preparation mode and I recently shopped some additional items from Walmart.com that I know will serve our purpose. I figured I'd continue sharing and updating you all what I got and what we're doing in prep for her arrival. Walmart carries a lot of premium brands which I absolutely love and it helps me to keep all my shopping in one place. I'm also impressed and in love with their Parent's Choice brand. It's Walmart's exclusive baby brand and what's cool too is that they are celebrating 20 years of the Parent's Choice brand. That is pretty amazing. We've got a bath tub already from Walmart but I'm really eyeing this Parent's Choice Inflatable Safety Bath Tub for when she gets older. Also, this Cushioned Potty Seat is high on my radar. It's a little hard controlling myself and buying exactly what we need for right now because our condo is so small and we do not have a lot of space. While I do plan to breastfeed (hoping all goes well), I'm considering options such as this Parent's Choice Gentle® Non-GMO* Infant Formula Powder as a back-up and/or hybrid feeding options.

Here are some other need items I got from Walmart premium brand section. 
I got this Delta Children Deluxe Water-Resistant 4 Pocket Hanging Wall Organizer. As I mentioned before, our condo is small and so saving space is so important to us. This is perfect and I love that it is water-resistant plus it goes well with our grey wall and a few grey storage bins I also bought from Walmart last month.
I also got this 3 pack Baby Brezza Natural Baby Bottle. I read that these are easy to clean because of the wide mouth. A friend gifted us a Baby Brezza Sterilizer so I figured I would keep it in the family and get these. 
We've also been gifted a changing pad from a friend and when I spotted these Hatch Baby Waterproof Changing Pad Liners, I knew I had to get them. I'm just so impressed by Walmart for carrying all these amazing premium brands. 
Finally, I got this Seventh Generation Thick & Strong Baby Wipes because it is a brand I use and love in my home. I hope our little girl will love it too. 

Overall, I  am happy with my preparation progress, even if it means I'm up at 3am while she is up and kicking up a storm in my tummy, shopping all my favorite brands, and baby products from Walmart.com. I'm still so blown away that their in house baby brand, Parent's Choice and that they are celebrating 20 years. They must be doing something good and I am happy about that because I know I can trust and use them for our family. 
Thanks for reading, loves. If you have any recommendations for me as a new mom, please comment below or send me a private email (styleweekender@gmail.com)

Ideas to Transition & Style Dresses For Fall

Hi guys!
I want to talk to you today about transitioning your Summer and also Spring dresses into Fall. I'm a huge advocate for shopping your closet first, then shopping in the stores. If you've shopped or have a few dress (short, midi, or maxi) sitting in your closet, then it's time to take them out, lay them down and see how you can restyle them for Fall. First go for the maxi dresses and those especially with long sleeves. You can wear these types over denim, leggings or style them with tights for lower temperatures. You can also add a cardigan, trench coat or a light coat to warm up the feel of the look. 
Next go for your shorter dresses. Even if they aren’t long sleeve, they can still easily be styled. Simply add collard or turtle neck blouses under short sleeves dresses, pair them with tights, denim or leggings. You can also style them with skirts (midi or maxi) add a belt to create a clear divide between the top and bottom. 

Coats & Belts

I'm currently in my third trimester of my pregnancy and I've been shopping my closet a lot, looking for pieces that will work and I've been so surprised and elated about what I have been finding. 
I've created a widget below with a few add on pieces to help amplify your outfit after you've shopped your closet. I've also added a few fall appropriate maxi dresses should you be in the mood for shopping some new pieces.

Thanks for reading.
