๐Ÿ’„Makeup Monday ๐Ÿ’„

Today's Makeup Monday is based on all of my great finds I got from ipsy this month! The CC cream from  IT cosmetics is my favorite of the bunch as its the perfect concealer color! ๐Ÿ’•

FYI I used my new Mikasa Brushes for the perfect application of it! 
I have a personalized discount code BRIGHTLYSOO25 for 25% off these amazing brushes as well!!๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•
.

CC cream in deep by it Cosmetics-
Very good spot on color for a color corrector. I use it under my foundation with a mix of my concealer. 

The white Company Lavendar Lotion- this is a body lotion and smells really good!
Nomad Cosmetics mini eyeshadow palette- The design is cute just not my favorite colors as I like brown  natural eyeshadows more.
Tarted cosmetics blush- I liked the pigment for the color of this blush.
Jonteblu lipliner- I actually am trying something new with a lipliner as I have fill lipsa already and I think it would be great to try something new! That's the beauty of ipsy it allows you to try something new you wouldn't normally try.
Ipsy makeup bag- Such a bright golden color!

Mikasa Brush-blush style brush! I purchased the entire set for under $100 and they are definetly worth the money. My makeup looks better as the bristles are soft and durable as well. One of the best beauty essentials to have is quality makeup brushes!!

๐Ÿ’„Makeup Monday ๐Ÿ’„

I have decided to do a new weekly post based on fashion tips and deals! This week is focusing on a crazy deal I couldn't pass up. @Dilliards is having an amazing gift offer for @Estรฉe Lauder. If you spend $35 in store  or online you have the option to buy a $455 gift set for $65!  At my local Dillard's I pre-signed up and it's such a good deal! Every beauty fashionista should check it out๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿพ!!

In the photo it's a portrait of the double wear which is one of my favs. I am currently wearing this color in a mocha and alao started mixing it with the Camo Fuller Coverage option in Sandalwood. I decided to buy it as the sale is going on and it's about $45 and worth it as the extra gift is available which has so many other deals in the box. There is a Advanced Night Repair Cream that's full size that's worth $65 so the entire set is worth it!!!
I am excited to start a weekly blog post on makeup and beauty deals and finds! This past weekend I spent way too much time watching beauty vlogs and can't believe  how much I learned on technique and skills from several talented YouTube stars!  Who knows maybe I'll do a video one day on my makeup routine! ๐Ÿ“ธ

Weekend Surprise๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

Instagram Recap

So this happened this weekend!!!๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ I am not able to express in words how surprised I was by Michael's ingenuity and stealthy skills to pull off the perfect engagement for me. I ruined the first two options of course and almost didn't open the room service door in time for him to unveil this special gift. Me and Michael have been on an amazing journey and I feel so blessed that we get such a special chance a second chance at this love thing lol. I've been crying for a couple days and just digesting it all. So excited for the future!!๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

Fyi Michael proposed with the song 1,2,3,4 by Plain White T's๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽผ  which is the first song we said I love you to 7 years ago!!! He's sooo romantic ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

This is from my post from Instagram and Facebook!  I have worked with many brides on picking out their dream ring and even more men picking it out for they're special lady but when it came my part I didn't think I would respond the way I did. A in tears B. Speechless C. Thought about my nails lol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

But oh how worth it the whole ordeal was. So when Michael proposed he had originally set it up where he would propose at Pete's Piano Bar which was about 5 minutes from our hotel and they would perform our song. But somehow someway I messed up the plans because I was enjoying myself at the wedding. Lol. I kept pushing back the time for leaving as I wanted to celebrate some of the key moments with my family. (The post recapping the wedding and Austin trip is coming up this week btw) so what ended up happening is that we didn't get back to the hotel til 9:50 and we needed to be there by 9:30. So he ended up improvising. He said  he needed a drink from the bar downstairs and so I ended up taking a nap not knowing what he was setting it up! 

So in order to cover his tracks he came back and told  met the bar was TOO full so he couldn't order( this should have been a clue) and so instead we ordered quesadillas. Not even 2 minutes later they arrived with the "cake" and that's when I knew lol something was up. And then he proposed!!! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

I was so shocked I couldn't speak and started crying! It was perfect as I like intimate moments and I am not so big into a big bar scene se for that time of occasion and so glad everything worked out the way it did ! 7 years later! We will be saying I do a second time 5 years after the first time we got married.

To me our love is very special and I keep it very close to heart. We are trying something very different that most people don't usually get a second chance to do. To marry their first love let alone marry a second time lol. Except for maybe Elizabeth Taylor.  But that's the thing that kept us going is that our love is based on a solid friendship and respect for each other that we definetly cherish so much!! 

Once again I am so excited for the year ahead and  going to enjoy and not take for granted any moments!!

๐Ÿ’•Fashion Forward Friday ๐Ÿ’•


๐Ÿ’ŽNew Arm Candy Alert๐Ÿ’Ž
I just joined switch this month and I absolutely hands down love it!! I saw on a fellow Style Collective sister's blog about this amazing company and I had to join.  Basically what you can do is rent luxury jewelry at a subscription price per month and have free shipping between switching your pieces. 

I have been a fan of the classic Hermes clic bracelets but I was always unsure of A. What color I would want and B. What size would work for me. So when I heard of Switch I knew this was the perfect opportunity to try one of my dream bracelets. So once I saw the bracelet in a turquoise I knew it was for me!! Then in a snap after ordering it seriously took only 2 days before it was in my hands!
So you may be wondering how much does is subscription cost per month?? 


The subscription starts at only $29/month for one piece and $49 for 2 pieces and there is also a 3 piece option plan available as well.
Say what!! Yass honey๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘  you've gotta check it out! 


If you're down check out my code & you can get $10 OFF your first month!!

BeattyKaren22J

My tips are to be careful as it is a rental and you would be responsible for any damages so keep it in a safe place.
Also if you have other luxury jewelry to not stack them on top of each other as they could scratch. I personally have a Cartier love bracelet that is made of 18kt gold so I have not stacked them on top of each so that neither bracelet is affected! 
Also don't clean with them on so that they are not affected by any possible cleaning chemicals! 
My expertise is based on 5 years working in the luxury jewelry industry.
If you have any other questions or comments and if you join ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿพcomment below!⬇⬇⬇ or shoot me an email @ brightlysoo@gmail.com!!

Fall Workout Essentials๐Ÿ‘Ÿ

I have been running for several years and the season that I have the most difficult with is winter and portions of fall because of the cold temperature.  So I  have compiled a couple of running essentials that will make a big difference in your working out routine. Besides having a good sweatshirt and headphones these other essentials are a good idea to check out!
*I just joined Shopstyle so the links are affiliate links fyi.* Would love it if you checked out the list below!

A. Victoria Secret Hoody http://shopstyle.it/l/mduZ
This sweatshirt is soft and comfy and good for cooler degrees. If it's super cold I recommend layering this hoody with a vest.

B.Nike Black Leggings
http://shopstyle.it/l/mdvV
These are great for any season.

C. Tennis Shoes -Nike Flyknits 
 http://shopstyle.it/l/mdue
Favorite running shoes! ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ I have 2 pair of this style in 2 different colors.

D. Bluetooth Blue Hat 

This hat is perfect for running and by far the best invention  and investment for runners. It even comes in a headband version The only con is that you have to be careful of getting the hat wet.


E. North Face Vest- Red Vest
I have this same vest in White and also the Patagonia version which is a light weight version.

F. Bluetooth tracker
http://bit.ly/2Adj31b
This is a good tracker for all of your daily steps and is not expensive at all.

Check out this Ultra Repair Cream (http://shopstyle.it/l/meMz)
to help with chapped skin. I got it from my ipsy bag last month and love it!  Also Burt's Bees is good for chapped lips.

I love to run and these are some of my favorite running essentials as I hate the cold and all of these suggestions work marvelously!

Let me know in the comments what you think!⬇⬇⬇
