Spotlight on: Sweet Water Decor

Hi everyone! Today I have a bit of a different post for you! I want to share my thoughts about a product/Etsy shop I have recently discovered! Melissa, from Sweet Water Decor was lovely enough to send me one of her adorable prints for me to review. Her shop features some gorgeous handmade products, including prints, coffee mugs, and much much more! Check out her shop and use the code ‘RYLIE’ to get 20% of your purchase of $15 (excludes invitation printing).


To be completely honest, I had such a hard time choosing a print….she has an amazing selection, all priced at $5. In the end, I chose this ‘Home Sweet Home’ print as I love the rustic look of it and thought it would look perfect in my home. The photo above shows how the print comes (she can either mail it to you, or send you the file to print on cardstock yourself).

Please note, this does not come with a frame, but you can easily find one that fits your style at a variety of stores (I got mine from Kohls for $10….normally $20, but there was a sale for 50% off)


I am very pleased with this print, and I would definitely like to order some of her other prints. At such an affordable price, you can easily spruce up any room in your home and there is a print for almost everyone! There are baby, marriage, funny, and serious prints. Go take a look and don’t forgot to use the code ‘RYLIE’.


Thank you so much for reading this post, I hope you will all check out Sweet Water Decor on Etsy! (click HERE)

Go-to summer makeup

Hi lovelies! I hope you are having a great day! It’s Saturday and the weather has been really nice lately. I want to share my go-to makeup for hot summer days! I like to keep it simple and as minimal as I can….I’m all about that lightweight, summer glow!

Base: I’m all about minimal face makeup, and I am loving NARS tinted moisturizer. It is the perfect sheer coverage, and as a bonus, it has spf (so perfect for summer!). Then I just add some concealer (my fave right now is Maybelline Fit Me Concealer)

Cheeks: Bronzer is my jam in the summertime! I love this shimmery bronzer from Milani in ‘Luminoso’. It gives such a beautiful bronzy glow to my cheeks! For blush, I used this Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in ‘Talented’ from a palette. It is a beautiful coral color for summer! To top that all off, I use a quick dusting of Stila’s All Over Shimmer Duo in ‘Kitten’.

EyesTo prime my lids, I use Mac Paint Pot in ‘Rubenesque’, a lovely gold/peach color. For shadow I used the 3 shades on the right side of the Tarte ‘Be Your Own Tarteist’ Palette. My eyeliner is Benefit’s Push-up Liner in brown, and mascara is Maybelline Lash Sensational. For brows, I just do a quick swipe with a tinted brow gel, like the ‘Gimme Brow’ from Benefit.

Lips: Keeping it super simple, I just used Mac’s ‘Coral Bliss’ which is a cremesheen finish so it gives just a beautiful sheer pop of color!

June Boxycharm

Hi lovlies…It’s that time of the month again! (NO, not THAT time…..). Boxycharm time!! This is the box for the month of June, and the theme is ‘Sea La Vie’. If you are just now hearing about Boxycharm, it is a monthly subscription box. For $21/month, they send you 4-5 full size beauty-related products. While this is a bit more than Birchbox or Ipsy, the products are full-sized, and in my opinion, totally worth the $$!

This month’s box: 

The Beauty Crop Lighting Crew Highlighting Cream – Full size – $16.00: This is a lovely highlighting cream, looks beautiful swatched. However, I have not had a chance to wear this yet, so I am excited to try it out! (and how cute is the pineapple packaging?!?)

Eslor Chlorophyll Lifting Mask – Full size – $38.00: This mask claims to be made of natural ingredients and will “tighten skin and diminish fine lines”. I am excited to try this!

ncLA Nail Lacquer – Full size – $16.00: This polish is a nice nude color. I have not tried this out yet, so I am hoping the formulation is good! This is a pretty color for summer!

Doucce Click Click Lipstick – Full size – $24.00: I have never heard of this brand before and I really don’t wear red lipstick a whole lot, but this is a cool concept. Once the lid goes on the bullet, there will still be a bit of the silver part sticking out. Once click, and up into the lid it goes – nice and compact!

Bellapierre Cosmetics Kabuki Brush – Full size – $29.99: I haven’t used this brush yet, but it feels very soft so I have high hopes!

Total value: $123.99!!

The products I am most excited about: the face mask, nail polish, and kabuki brush. Overall, I am very pleased with this box.

Let me know what you thought of this month’s box!!

National PINK Day

Hi lovelies! So I wasn’t initially planning a post for today, but when I discovered that it is National Pink Day, how could I not post?!? No matter how old I get, I think pink will always be my favorite color. I’m that girl that grew up wearing and loving pink in almost every aspect of my life. Even now, I have backed off on the pink overload a tad bit, but it still holds a special place in my heart. Nothing brightens up my day like a pop of pink in my makeup or accessories… It just screams happy and girly! So in honor of National Pink Day, here is a little collection of pink items!


Thank you for stopping by…Have a great day!
