TARTE

Hello ALL,

I just wanted to do a small post about the foundation I use. Tarte has become my favorite foundation in the last year, I never would spend more then $20 on makeup until I realized what was good for me! So I made the switch! I use the Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen. It comes in 8 different shades and can be purchased at Tarte, Beauty First {in stores}, ULTA, and Sephora.

Eco Friendly and Natural !

Love yours truly,

Home Decor (Walk in Closet)

I pulled a few images that represent the closet I would like to have within the next few years. I would love to have a two room apartment and use one of the rooms for a walk in closet! These images are some of the ideas I have..I hope you enjoy and inspire you ! 

Image

 

What I love about this is the shelves used to hang the clothes and a few pairs of shoes, the rug and the sofa in the closet with a cute decorative pillow or two.

Instead of that desk and chair I would have a beautiful place to do my makeup.

Image

 

The leopard chair is obviously a MUST!

Image

 

Or maybe something more simple for MY Budget!

Here are a few ideas for Jewelry organization:

Happy shopping and decorating, have fun and BUDGET!

I cant wait for these dreams and ideas to come true!

Love yours truly,

Cheetah vs. Leopard

My favorite print right now is Leopard and sometimes as a Fashion blogger I get confused between Leopard and Cheetah..how can you tell the difference? Well thats what this post is all about. I want to distinguish what the difference is for you and for all of my fellow fashion bloggers. 

Image

 

Cheetah is a closed black bean shape and Leopard has a different color in the center of the black outline.

Image

 

As you can see on my rain boots the bean shaped are full 

My scarf has a light brown color in the middle of the black outline.

I hope this post has answered any questions you might have about the difference between Leopard and Cheetah prints!

I hope you have a great FABULOUS week.

Love yours truly, Alexis Elizabeth

Valentines Night

Lace black shorts {Urban} White Blouse {F21}

Coat {F21} Under $20 Purse {Charming Charlies}

All right here it is my Valentines night outfit, I switched it up from my original plan. My hair is down instead of the “classy” bun…but the idea is its a day to night look.

I spent my Valentines with my wonderful boyfriend with dinner and a movie.
