So I have a slightly negative attitude about giveaways, except of course when I'm hosting one or winning one :) I'll be rather disappointed when I go check a favorite blog, excited to see what they wore, or did, or simply wrote about for the day only to find out its a giveaway. But I guess the truth is, there are awesome products and people out there, and giveaways are a fabulous way to highlight them (and get free stuff?).
Speaking of free stuff, I just won a giveaway over on Katelyn's blog and my first prize arrived in the mail! The lovely Lissa emailed me asking for color preferences and skin tones and some close ups so she could select colors for me. I got that pampered feeling I get sitting in a salon just from reading her email. Anyway, yesterday I got to sport my new MaryKay foundation along with a bronzer, new eye colors, and lipstick. I'm a BareMinerals girl through and through but who doesn't love new colors and new brushes? Plus, the lipstick is so silky and the foundation is more my summer color (my current BM is too fair after last months lake excursion).

Taylor, told you I had earrings that looked just like that :)

This has been my go to outfit (cuffed skinnies, comfy shoes, and simple tee) for casual days working on campus. Usually I try to throw in some interesting jewelry and I didn't notice till AFTER we took these pictures that I'd just taken off the glass bangles my old roommate got me in India last semester! Fail. The whole point of the gold accents were to complement those bangles. I'll get pictures of those teal and gold beauties sometime.
