A Beauty Tip.

Today I have a quick and easy Beauty Tip for you all that I think you will all appreciate. I love reading Beauty tips from others so I felt it was time to share another one of my own.


I will admit that those that have smaller collections may not find this as helpful, but those that have a good bit of makeup may find this to be rather helpful. I find that I sometimes sadly buy duplicates. Thank goodness for having a mom that loves makeup, so when this occurs I am able to pass it along to someone that will love it.

I recommend that if this is something that happens to you, or you are simply looking to save money that you “shop your own collection.” Yes, I completely understand the temptation of new collections all too well. However, when you weigh the options as in if you really need a product, look into your own collection. I find that I am drawn to the similar colors and there are many eye shadows in my collection that are very similar.

So before heading to the store or shopping online for the last product, I recommend looking through your own makeup collection to see if you have anything similar. I find that thinking out purchases in this way helps me to not hoard makeup… as much.

Hope you enjoyed this and found this helpful! Until next time…

Let's Be Friends Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Let's Be Friends Blog Hop!



A blog hop is a set time frame for current or aspiring bloggers to find new blogs and quality content. It is a great way to make new friends and find inspiration! It is also a fabulous way to promote your own blog and posts.

Dear Friends,

What a day to celebrate! This is the 62nd week of the Let's Be Friends blog hop! Thanks for joining us on this special day. Chelsee and Tiffany are extremely delighted to see the way this hop has grown and love to see your faces each week! It is crazy that we have been doing this for 60 weeks! 

Join us every Tuesday at 7am (MST). This blog hop focuses on content. LINK UP YOUR FAVORITE POST from last week in this fun content-sharing blog hop! I love the idea of blog hopping, but I love the idea of reading posts and quality content on new blogs I've never been to even more. Instead of simply linking up your blog button, you are now able to link up your favorite post you recently wrote. Have a delicious recipe to share, DIY tutorial, or heartfelt post? Share it with us! All hosts and co-hosts put up some unique and fun content from the past week. Make sure to check them out. P.S.- you may still link up your blog button and blog name, but it is encouraged to link up your favorite post instead. You will get more page views and interest if you do so! Some of the most successful blog hops I have participate in focus on content rather than just exchanging follows. You never know who will become a loyal follower or pin that delicious new recipe you posted!

The BEST part of this blog hop? Each week there will be a WINNER! That's right, each week we will choose one lucky blog to feature from the previous week's hop. This hop receives thousands of page views every week, so your blog will have the chance to be center stage for free. You must follow all the hosts and co-hosts in order to win. Only those who link up a specific post are eligible to be featured! *You must follow all the hosts and co-hosts in order to win.

The last exciting change is that the co-host spots will now be available to all sponsors of  The Dwelling Tree or Southern Beauty Guide. If you are interested in co-hosting the blog hop, email Tiffany or Chelsee about sponsorship opportunities and how to co-host the weekly hop!

There are a couple of great giveaways going on right now at Southern Beauty Guide and The Dwelling Tree. Go check them out! :)

***This weeks featured post from last week's hop:


Hello! This is Tiffany this week. As always, it is fun to read all of your posts. There are so many good ones! I was totally drawn in by these flowers, because I cannot wait for Spring and warmth and green- ah! 

Amanda at Rhyme & Ribbons is an amazing gal, and her blog is just lovely. This post is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the heart. Are you like me- not planning a vacation anytime soon? Then simply scroll through these colorful, vibrant pictures of Amana's stay in London. You may not get to sit and sip espresso and eat a pastry on a street market, but you can have a momentary "getaway". 

Rhyme & Ribbons is a beautiful blog that documents Amanda's transatlanic adventures. Go check it out here!

Keep posting awesome content! You make it so fun for us to read all your posts! If you can, please link up a specific post. It makes it easier for us to come and visit! 

*Remember YOU can be next weeks winner! :)

Manic Monday like no other! {Giveaway}

The title of this post leaves no doubts about my Monday. Having a jam packed week has been swamped up to my neck. I am so ready for this week to be over since we have one thing after another scheduled. Big events always lead to this stress so forgive me for not having big time post up today. I did write some posts that will appear later this week so make sure you check back for those!
