Friday Favorites and a Giveaway!

Love this? Share it!

Happy Tax Day! Just kidding, there’s not much happy about that, is there? Hopefully you won’t be scrambling today to get square with Uncle Sam! Since we’re all stuck in a world of things like taxes, let’s see if there a couple of FREE things I can add to my Friday Favorites! (And one might be a giveaway…you’ll have to read on to find out!)

1. This app

I was flipping through a magazine and saw an ad for the lip glosses I’m currently obsessed with (L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss) and noticed this:


As someone who used to own all that “Cosmo Makeover” computer software where you could try on new hairstyles or makeup, I was intrigued. I downloaded the Makeup Genius app (it’s free) and it’s so fun! You scan your face and then you can try on all kinds of products and it’s not just your photo, it’s a live, movement-capable makeover! Seriously, download it and play with it!


2. These photos

These are from about a month ago, but I’m still swooning over these photos from the Canadian White House State Dinner!

Is it weird that it’s a dream of mine to attend a White House State Dinner? (I was a political science major afterall!) The clothes are gorgeous and sophisticated, the conversation has to be amazing, what’s not to love? The Obamas have definitely brought some glamour to the White House and set a high bar for whoever comes next!


3. A Tax Day Giveaway!

It’s been too long since we’ve done a giveaway and now that my giveaway stash has reached new heights I figure it’s time to act! The winner will receive a makeup bag filled with LOTS of great products!! Enter below and I’ll announce the winner next week!

This isn’t the final bag, just a preview! There will be lots of fun stuff I promise!
