Watch review

I was so super excited for my tiny tulip watch to come in the mail. And it is super cute. I love the classic look of it paired with a bit of modern coloring and some chevron! Love.

BUT, it doesn't seem like it is very well made. Super sad face. When you put it on it, the "leather" kind of buckles. It does seems to straighten out after you take it off, though.

You have to decide if the cute factor is enough for you to overlook the quality. Considering I paid $22.50 for this watch, I am keeping it. But, I recommended this product  to you before I received it. Thus, I wanted to update you on quality if you were thinking of purchasing! 

Y'all have a good night. Happy Monday!

Fall is my faveđź’›

It's such a fall day today! Makes me smile although I could do without the rain. Mr Brown and I had breakfast together early  this morning. We don't do that often! Things really seem to move slower in the fall. And I love that. 

We are going on vacation to the beach next week and I am excited about having one last bit of summer. Plus, beach vacations are so stress free and relaxing. It will flow perfectly with my slowed down fall mood. :)

One thing I haven't done (and need to before we leave for vaca) this season is put outside decorations out! One of my favorite things to do.. I've been slacking! I have been busy embroidering your clothes! I have a list a mile long to work on but my hoop has broken and my smaller hoop won't do the job. I'm hopefully picking up a new one tomorrow (if the store has them, if not I'll have to order a new one). Cross your fingers!

Watches have my heart❤️

I get a bit obsessed with trends.. And google search and shop until I find exactly what I want! Well, watches have been my thing for the last few months. I have been obsessed with a MK rose gold watch with a $300+ price tag. Noooot happening. 

So, I decided to get myself a few watches to fill the void of the MK watch. I have a white and silver chevron watch that I get compliments on often. Bought it at a little boutique in Central City called Green Leaf. 

And now this little baby is ok it's way to my house!
Of course I got the teal and gold. I am also obsessed with teal! Thinking about getting the coral color, too. These are from Tiny Tulip. Super cute online shop that reminds me of Marley Lilly without the price tag! Their stuff is reasonable. 

That's all for now. Can't wait to post pics of my new watch in Instagram. @mrsbrownandco

The blended beauty :)

I have been mentioning this little tool for a few weeks now.. And I finally have time to blog about it: Beauty blender. Don't judge it by it's name. It's the BEST applicator I have ever used. 
Don't judge it by its appearance, either. Once you use it, you'll forget about its odd design. 

It comes with steps on how to prep your applicator. I followed these steps and much to my surprise, it nearly doubled in size after I dampened it. 
Now that you've prepped your applicator and it is damp, you get to work! Just bounce whichever end you choice into your foundation,  (I use the back of my hand) then apply directly to your face using the same bouncing movement. 
I usually start with my concealer then my liquid foundation. I even use this for my powder.. Not sure if I'm supposed to or not, but it works well. I love how easy it is. Honestly, this would be a great gift for tweens just starting to use makeup. The egg shape is designed for the big end to cover the larger areas of your face and the small end should be focused more on the hard to reach areas. They are so lightweight and airy, too. The sponges I've used before are more heavy and solid. The makeup artist behind these little beauties was on top of her game when she thunk these up. ;)

I am in love with the results. See for yourself: 

I love how dewy and airbrushed my makeup looks. This is absolutely the best my makeup has ever looked. Blended, smooth, even coverage.. What more could you ask for? 

Make sure you don't settle for an off brand of the beauty blender. I usually love Target's Up and Up brand.. BUT, they totally missed the mark. Grant it, I was already addicted to the beauty blenders before I tried their brand. It's rock hard and just absorbs all of your makeup! It like disappears inside the sponge and won't come out for nothing! I was pushing so hard I felt like I was bruising my face. That is NOT how the beauty blender does it. I am all about cutting corners when you can get a better or equal product for less, but this is not a corner cutting time! Just say no to Up and Up on this one. Trust me. 

 $25.95 may be a bit steep, but you get two beauty blenders that last (if you clean them) for a long time. I definitely will order these again. I can't imagine going back to another sponge or applying foundation with my hands (eek) ever again! 

Of course, this is a Birchbox product. Try it.. You will fall madly in love with the ease of putting your makeup on. :)

Night y'all!
