LORAC Palette and Night Out Outfit...

Saturday after returning from Tampa (John Mayer), I wanted to do something a little more special than the usual with the hubs. We have a couple hard weeks coming up with our work schedules and I just wanted to take advantage of this weekend. This week I am in Atlanta, next week Vero Beach returning the 24th, then the hubs heads to Dallas for five days on the 26th---needless to say, we needed some lovey time. We decided to head over to Melting Pot since we haven't been there in a while. I decided to wear my fave Michael Kors top and a cute pair of jeans.

I took these pictures as we were rushing out of the door so they aren't the best to show the outfit but hopefully you get the idea, right?
Top: Michael Kors
Jeans: Express
Shoes: DSW

While in Tampa, I stopped by Sephora and picked up a new palette from LORAC, a Private Affair. These colors are very pigmented and I am totally in love with the shades. The range from purple and wine to grays and taupes. The palette comes with a primer and a brush.

I did a wine and gray smokey eye for the Melting Pot. Like I said, these are very pigmented. You can sort of see how I barely touched the bare colors to get this look. 

I really think this palette is worth picking up. I like that it offers the ability to create a few different smokey eyes. I mainly used the second to last color and a dab of the last on in the crease but you could easily focus on more of a purple look or even more of a gray/taupe look as the third and fourth darkest are still quite dark.

On a side note, this creature (ICK!) jumped onto our window while we were driving downtown. He hung out most of the way home just like that leaving a slime trail on the window. I am petrified of frogs so I hauled butt out of the car when we were in the garage just in case he was hiding.

I hope this week goes fast. This weekend I am hosting a baby shower for my Sister-in-Law and my little baby niece (who isn't here yet and hopefully stays that way until I am done with the out of town jobs). I am super excited to host the party and I cannot wait for little baby girl (no name is decided yet) to arrive. I love holding eenie-weenie babies.

Happy Monday all!
