Naturally, being a photography-lover first, human second, I took some photos as I was prepping the room for the evening and as the night unfolded, and as soon as I started to flip through the photos, I knew I wanted to share them. Again, for a night that was supposed to be a casual get-together with some good friends, things didn’t turn out too bad, if I do say so myself! So, today, I’m going to do just that, as well as share some tips for you to use should you decide to host your very own game night, or any other kind of gathering, for that matter! I am by no means the authority in hosting, heck, I’m not even 25 years of age yet! I have hundreds of parties still on my list to host, but the following are some thoughts I have on making hosting as easy as counting 1,2,3!
Good afternoon, gang! Today’s #FashionFriday post is a very special one, so I’m super excited to share it with you! Why, you ask? It’s TWO outfits in one post, that’s why! 😀
Hey gang, long time no chat! Happy May (and happy Monday)!
I’ve been staying away from the internet for the first little chunk of May, because a) there’s a fair amount going on behind the scenes already for #BeautyBylaws, very, very exciting things (it’s the summer of change, folks…get ready! :D), b) I needed a little longer away from, well, everything to recharge my batteries and get some inspiration and c) hey, let’s face it, Siobhan sucks at time management. And enjoys writing in the third person. 😉
In all seriousness, I am back and ready to embark on the madness that will be Summer 2015. There will be some great things that y’all can look forward to this summer and I can’t wait to share what I’ve been working on! 🙂 I don’t think I’ll be taking another break for a while, though, because, as it happens, my list of posts to write has grown exponentially over the last week; inspiration everywhere! Can’t wait to get crackin’! 😀
In other news, I was supposed to upload this April Favourites video last week, but all didn’t go as planned (are you seeing the lack of time management now? Yea, it’s the common theme in my life…really need to improve my skills in that…if only I had the time… 😉 :P), so I’m uploading it now! In this video, I share all of the beauty products and lifestyle faves from the last month as well as…do a really bad Matthew McConaughey impression?! Ahh, yes, the usual YouTube video awkwardness ensues…welcome back, friend, welcome back (please don’t leave now that you see what you’ve been “missing!”) 😉 😀 Check it out below for a (probable) laugh (at my expense, I totally get it, I laughed at myself, too)!
There you have it, my April favourites! So, tell me, did you enjoy? Did I at least get a smile out of you? I hope so! What were you loving throughout April? What are you enjoying using now? Any TV shows that are simply so good, I have to watch!? Let me know down below!
Here’s to a fabulous week for us all! 🙂
Lots of love,
Sunday evenings are spa evenings here at Beauty Bylaws headquarters, and given that the last couple of weeks have been über stressful, let’s just say, I’m really enjoying it, haha! I’m currently sitting with a sheet mask on my face, fresh nail paint drying, and a mug of Crème Caramel Rooibos tea from David’s Tea clutched in my hand. Ahhh…this is the life, hold on tight and this is the dream, it’s all I need (#throwback to the good ol’ innocent Hannah Montana days)! #bliss
Seeing as it is spa day, I thought I’d write up a quick little post on one of my favourite products. I’ve been using the Origins Eye Doctor eye cream for just over a year now and I have zero complaints. In fact, at this point, it’s gone beyond no complaints…I think it’s safe to say that I’m in love.
Honestly, sometimes, it is really hard being a woman. Before you roll your eyes and I lose you forever, why is it that we have to carry around bags full of stuff we think we might need…giant wallets, agendas, pens, lip gloss, erhm, personal feminine hygiene products, everything, and men get to just stroll around with their wallets and cell phones shoved in their pockets, end of? I hate to sound like a bratty child, but it’s just not fair! To make matters worse, when the warmer months roll around, the last thing I, personally, want to do is carry around luggage disguised as a handbag. No, I want to carry less, fuss less and have more fun!
Enter the micro mini, and I tell you, this just happens to be a Spring/Summer 2015 trend that I’m really going to enjoy. The micro mini, if you haven’t heard, is exactly what it sounds like, a bag so small, it cranks the very definition of mini up a notch. These bags are basically what many women call wallets, with sizes so microscopic (she says loosely), you can only fit the absolute essentials in there (read: cell phone, cash & lip balm). Think of a modern, fresh and fashionable version of an evening clutch, just for daytime! I’ve been crushing on micro bags for the last little while now, I just love everything about them! So cute, so chic and so…mini!
Would you give one of these lovely mini bags a whirl?
