Wedding Wednesday: Pictures from Our Wedding Day

Happy Wedding Wednesday!!

Today I am sharing 4 photos that we got back from our photographers - I'm still patiently waiting for the remaining.... 
Whenever I look at these photos I tear up. 

I know every girl says this about their wedding, but it was seriously the most magical day for me. It's a day I will never forget. 
I'm currently trying to make our first Christmas cards as Mr. & Mrs. and I am having a blast and figured I would share these photos on my blog! :)


The following two photos were taken with my father's classic car and at my work. Our pictures after the ceremony weren't suppose to happen here! It actually rained on our wedding day so I had to come up with a place to take pictures the day before our wedding day. Where I work actually holds weddings so I figured pictures inside would be beautiful. Luckily for us, it stopped raining when we got there so we took pictures outside!

So far, I am very pleased with our photos!!! 
I cannot wait to get more of them. 

Best. Day. Ever.

Weekend Recap: Sephora Holiday Haul, New Drugstore Items, ColourPop Holiday Set, & VIB Wishlist

Happy Monday!

I apologize for the lack of regular posts. I am trying to kick of my YouTube channel and a lot of my time and effort are going into filming and editing, which is a lot more work than I thought. 
I haven't decided if I am going to continue to blog on this blog anymore. I have created a new blog, we will see. 

Friday I was extremely exhausted so I decided to leave work early, and by early I mean by 3:00... It was a rough week for me. 
I snapped this shot at my work when I was leaving. How gorgeous is this?!

I finally finished editing my Sephora haul. I picked up a lot of holiday sets and if you would like to see that video please click here

After I finished editing I decided to check out Wal-Mart's Halloween clearance. And I wandered into the makeup aisle...
I picked up this Hard Candy eye shadow set for only $6.00. I really like the variety of colors in this palette and can't wait to try it. I'll let you know how I like it.
I'm trying not to use my expensive makeup when I don't need to, so I'm trying to test out more drugstore brands. Any recommendations?

Pure Ice, a brand I typically don't buy, has a new collection of nail polishes. I think the colors are really pretty. I decided to pick up the one on the left. We'll see how it goes... 

 Has lots of chunky glitter and stars in it.

I also wandered into the Dollar Tree because I was looking for Christmas washi tape for my Erin Condren life planner - no luck. But I did stumble upon a bunch of Essie nail strips!! I only picked up this color but there is a ton more! 

Saturday evening I ended my night playing Black Ops III. Yes, I play Black Ops III. 


Sunday I decided to bring out this guy. Turkey candle holder is from Bath & Body Works and was free because I had a coupon. Score! 

Yesterday I filmed my first ever ColourPop purchase from their new Holiday set, Vixen. There are two other holiday sets but I decided to just go with one for now. They are priced at $30. 
If you would like to see the video, review, and swatches please click here.

 I hope to do a full review on my blog, but like I said I am considering changing blogs so I may start doing blog posts there. We'll see. 

This is a phone picture so the camera really doesn't do the colors justice! 
The colors are SUPER pigmented and so creamy. 

Sephora VIB Sale starts this Friday for VIB members, it started on the 6th for VIB Rouge members. 
I decided to start making my wish list. 

Like I really need another eyeshadow palette, but I don't own anything by Makeup Forever because it's so expensive. It's limited edition!!! Plus 20% off!

I'm definitely getting the Formula X Bottle Service nail polish set. This will look so cute on my makeup vanity! 

I'm also definitely picking up the Philosophy Gingerbread House. Includes 4 shower gels and 4 lip glosses. 

Have a great night!

Weekend Recap: Halloween, Ulta Trip, ColourPop Holiday Released & New Videos

Happy Monday!

I CANNOT believe it's November! 

Where did 2015 go? It's amazing how quickly this year went by for me. It was such a great year for me I couldn't be more thankful. 
Friday we were able to dress up for work so I decided to go as Minnie Mouse because I thought I had a set of eyelashes I wanted to use that would be perfect for the Minnie Mouse costume - FAIL. I never even bought them, when I thought I did... Hahaha. None the less I still decided to go as Minnie Mouse. 

I didn't have an actual costume and I wanted it to be work appropriate so I decided to wear a red skirt, black blazer, and minnie mouse ears I purchased off eBay for only $4.95. I also already had polka dotted pantyhose and did my nails with polka dots. Polka dot overload!

Here's a picture of my whole outfit and a co-worker. Everyone around here are HUGE Penn State fans, so she wore her jersey. :) To the right is my office... just a little sneak peak into my daily life. haha

Friday was date night for the hubby & I. After work we went to Olive Garden because we were both craving it. I had to get my ring inspected so we went to the mall and I snuck in a trip to Ulta. :)
At Olive Garden we shared a pumpkin cheesecake, it was actually very yummy!

I filmed a makeup tutorial on my YouTube channel for my Minnie Mouse costume and I filmed a haul of the Wet N Wild Disney Villians collection. Go check it out! :)
Click HERE for my YouTube channel.
I had to run to Wal-Mart for some things to make dinner and wandered into the makeup aisle. Physician Formula finally released their shimmer line. I took a couple of pictures to show you guys. 
I actually picked up the palette below, but haven't used it yet. It was only $8.97!

They also have shimmer eyeliners (I have been using their eyeliner lately and LOVE it) and shimmer gel cream shadows. 

This is the actual outfit I sported on Halloween. :)
The sweater is from Kohls. 

This is the makeup look I filmed. 

Go check it out!
Click HERE for my channel.
Officially the first day of November and we got an extra hour of sleep. It was beautiful! What did I do with my extra hour? Took a nap for exactly an hour and it was a beautiful thing. 

Also, Pandora recently released their holiday line and how adorable is this red nosed reindeer?

I tried Sheetz Reese's peanut butter hot chocolate - YUCK. I don't recommend. 

Also, last but not least ColourPop released their holiday sets today! I have been wanting to try their lippies but just haven't and I don't know why. Since they came out with a kit of 6 for only $30 I would pick one up. From what I understand their holiday sets don't stick around long, so if I were you, I would order a set soon. There's also a eyeshadow set(which I'm contemplating) and a gel/liner set. If you purchase all 3 right now they're offering 20% off. But I have my eyes on other things for the upcoming VIB sale that I decided to pass and just get this set. 
Anyway to check out their holiday line click here. I used coupon code THANKSBABE for $5 off, which essentially covers the shipping that is $5. 

Have a great night!

Weekend Recap: My Birthday Weekend

Happy Monday!

Today was a long day at work 7:30-6:30. :( It's so nice to sit down and relax. 
Plus I'm excited to share some snap shots from my birthday weekend. My birthday was on October 14th, officially my last year in my 20's!


As you can tell I caught the hubby off-guard.  We're off to Philadelphia! I swear we travel there all the time.

We stopped at a really good diner we like and had a quick bite to eat and our favorite dessert, some good old fashioned rice pudding. 

Once we got to Philadelphia we headed to the Lush store because they are having a soft launch of their Christmas items right now. And if you check online a lot of their Christmas items are already sold out. So go get you some!!!

So of course I picked up a bunch of stuff... Video coming soon!

I picked up my favorite smoothie while we were in the mall - California Sensation. MmMmM. 

Of course as soon as we got to the hotel I had to try one of the bath bombs. The one I'm using here is Father Christmas which is still available online for only $6.40. I loved it so much I went back the next day and purchased another. This smells SO amazing. 

You would think it would turn your bath tub a red color - nope. The inside was a deep green!!! 


Saturday we planned on going to King of Prussia and then to Terror Behind the Walls at Eastern State Penitentiary. 

This is my CRAZY hair as I'm getting ready. It's so hard to manage, I'm sick of it! Not to mention I forgot my shampoo and conditioner so I was stuck using the hotels brand and it was a crappy one.  

Of course I stopped into Sephora while I was there. What? I had to pick up my birthday gift and well - a few other items on my wish list. On my hand here I swatched the Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix eyeshadow palette which you can pick up here  for only $59! I swatched a couple of the shadows and ladies, this is just one swipe of color! The colors in these palette are absolutely AMAZING! I love that the neutral/highlight colors are in the center and you have fun colors around that. Absolutely gorgeous. And when I was there I picked up the last palette so it is selling out quickly! 

This is my oh-so-trendy outfit for Terror Behind the Walls. 
Shirt: Old Navy/Skull Scarf: eBay/Leggings: Victoria Secrets/Leg Warmers: Ugg/Boots: Uggs

If you've never been to Terror Behind the Walls and you live near Philly - WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Unless you're not into that type of thing, but it's definitely something I think everyone should experience! 
The reason for the necklace and red X's on our faces is because before you go into the prison you have to make a choice - you can walk through without being touched or "taken" or you can opt in for the ultimate experience. We do it every year and we just love it. But I understand it's not everyone's cup of tea. I just thoroughly enjoy it. But then again, I love all things scary. :)
 I even got a kiss at the end of the night. :)


I may or may not have made my first ever Kate Spade purchase at age 29, and no it isn't this dice cube. But isn't it cute?!?!  

Have a great night!

My Fall Handbag 2015

Happy Thursday!

Today I am sharing my fall handbag for this year. 
I picked it up from a Bebe Outlet this summer. 
This bag was on clearance for only $66 but Bebe was having a sale to take an additional 50% off the lowest ticketed price. So I scored this handbag for only $33! I have only had it out for about 2 weeks now and have gotten a ton of compliments on it. It may be bright but it's also orange!
I tried to tone it down with a spare scarf I had lying around from Charlotte Russe. 

I really do love Bebe handbags and now that I know I can find them on clearance at the outlets I'm hoping to own a few more. 
I usually wear them for months and months and they really hold up to all my abuse. 

I hope you enjoy this shot because in the process of taking this photo I dropped my camera on the concrete! Luckily I didn't break the touch skin but it is dented. :(

Don't forget to enter my giveaway for a Lorac Mega Pro 2 Palette. All you have to do is subscribe and comment on the video which you can find HERE

This will be my last post for the week as I am going away this weekend. Follow me on snapchat for my adventures! (vzaleski)

Have a great night!

Wedding Wednesday: Professional Honeymoon Photos Couples Resort, Negril Jamaica

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Today I am sharing the professional photos we had taken while on our honeymoon. 
You're probably wondering why Jamaica has a USA sign up on the resort right? The day we had pictures taken was 4th of July...

This is my favorite picture.

My hair started out curly and ended up frizzy.....

This was a random day hubby and I were walking to our beach chairs. 

It was my turn to dip hubby. :)

This day we went snorkeling.
Looking at these pictures makes me miss Jamaica. Maybe one day we will go back. 

If you'd like to see days 1-6 click on the days below:

I still have day 7 & 8 to go. Stayed tuned until next Wednesday! :)

Have a great night!
