Updated Makeup Routine


HI guys and Happy Thursday!

I’ve recently been getting a lot of questions about my makeup routine and while I’m no makeup artist, these are all products I love and use almost daily. I do switch up my routine from time to time so this is what I’m doing currently.

Step 1 – I prep my skin. I use Tula moisturizer. I use this at night after I wash my face as well as in the morning after I shower. Its super hydrating and It feels really good on my skin. I usually put this on and will fix my hair after to give it some time to sink in my skin before I apply makeup. I also apply Dr Brandt No more baggage eye cream which helps with puffiness and makes you look instantly refreshed!

Step 2 – Tarte Shape Tape Concealer on any Blemish I have. I have a very light shade for highlighting under my eyes so I will use this on my blemishes prior to foundation so that the foundation will appear smooth and also, It helps so I don’t have to purchase two separate concealers.

Step 3 – I currently use Este Lauder Double wear foundation. Its full coverage and it stays all day. I was using Maybelline stay matte foundation (which I still use occasionally) but my skin was getting really oily in my T zone mid day and It wasn’t lasting as long as I’d like. Double wear stays all day/night long and doesn’t budge. I know everyone loves beauty blenders, but I use a brush for my foundation. I think it helps me spread it a little more easily.

Step 4 – I apply Tarte shape tape concealer under my eyes and anywhere else I want to highlight. This is where I use a beauty Blender. I blend out my concealer and usually dab the rest of my face to make sure everything looks smooth.

Step 5 – I apply translucent powder to set my face. I used Rimmel London Stay matte powder. Its $3 at target and I love it. I use a fluffy real techniques brush all over my face.

Step 6 – Time to contour/bronze! I use my Anastasia powder contour palette I will blend two of the lighter bronzer colors together on a brush and lightly contour/bronze my face. For every day I just use a bit of color. If I’m going somewhere special, I’ll add some of the darkest color into the hollow of my cheeks to create more dimension.

Step 7 – Blush- I love blush sometimes I just use blush and mascara if I’m running to the grocery store and I don’t have time to do much else. I have several I interchange but lately I’ve been reaching for my favorite Milani blush

Step 8 – Eyebrows! I use milani dip brow. Its a dupe for Anastasia dip brow. Its super easy to use. Then I use Maybelline clear mascara as a gel to hold them in place. HOWEVER, I recently purchased the maybelline eyebrow

Step 9 – Morphe Jaclyn Hill Pallete is what I use daily. I rarely stray. Its my favorite.

Step 10 – Eyeliner and Mascara! I only wear eyeliner occasionally lately. I have Stilla Black eyeliner which I love – so easy to use. I also use the elf liquid eyeliner that’s $2 but I use stilla more. My holy grail mascara is loreal voluminous carbon black. I often try others because I get a lot in my Ipsy bag and Its still my number 1. It cosmetics is a close second with their Superhero mascara.

Step 11 – Last step- Highlighter and lipstick. I use Becca Champagne Pop. My every day Lipstick depends on the day but my 3 favorites are Maybelline stay matte Lipstick, Millani Lipstick, or Nyx satin Lip butter.

and VOILA! That’s it.

Bathroom Refresh!


One of the things I’ve wanted for my blog was for it to be a creative outlet. I love lots of things in my life and although fashion is one of them, that’s not where it ends for me. I wanted to make a conscious effort to write about food, fashion, workouts, fun experiences and home décor.

Today I wanted to share a little more about our home décor and particularly our half bath.

Andy and I purchased our home in December of 2016 and I was SO excited to have my own space with my own walls to paint any color without asking a landlord for permission. This thought is actually kind of hilarious to me now because I would rather do anything else than paint now that we’ve painted 70% of our home.

Fortunately for us, our home had a lot of character already (which is one of the reasons we fell in love with it in the first place) and the only real changes we had plans for were style wise… For now.

Our Bathroom was one of our first “finished” projects. (Although is anything really ever finished in home décor?) And it wasn’t all that much work but I feel like it made a huge difference.


Left- Sherwin Williams “North Star” (we did this one)
Right- Sherwin Williams “Lullaby”


LETS START WITH COLOR. Paint colors can be kind of overwhelming. I knew I was going to be using light gray tones in our living room/dining room and hallway and I wanted the bathroom to be slightly different. We ended up getting two small samples of Lullaby and North Star from Sherwin Williams which actually turned out to be very similar. And after staring at them for hours we decided to go with North Star. And just as we did in every single other room in our house, we had to paint the trim. Our trim was either the same color as the wall or a cream color. It’s been a major pain. (We’re almost done with trim Andy- ALMOST!!!!)

I wanted to add some visual interest with shelves above the toilet and I had originally planned on using free floating shelves from Lowes, but they didn’t have the correct length. In our search, we found that hobby lobby has lots of great unfinished options that allow for you to really create the look you want. I had originally planned on staining these a gray brown color but ultimately went with white – mostly because it was easier to spray paint them and I was eager for it to be finished – but I do think that white looks better.


The mirror that was in the bathroom was an oval and I wasn’t a fan of it. I took measurements of the size I needed (around about size) and began looking in TJ maxx, Home Goods, and Kirkland’s for anything I might need to finish the project. I love stores like these for knick-knack items because they are generally less expensive and I’m on a budget. Also – I like to switch things up every once in a while.


I forgot to take a picture of the mirror while it was hung so here is Ellie modeling in it.


Just like in clothing, there are items that are “investment pieces” for home décor and then pieces that are just trends that may phase out. I reuse a lot of items and I try to repurpose things whenever possible. On our shelves, I either had it already or I purchased it on clearance or at TJ maxx.

  • I had the painted F from our gallery wall at our old house (painted a wooden letter from Michaels – the letter is $3 and I had paint)
  • The small white F my mom gave me, it came in a grab bag from Michaels that she purchased for like $2 with tons of other things
  • The Mason jar was in the back of a closet when we purchased our house. The old homeowners left it along with several vases and other jars.
  • The blue vase is something my grandma gave me the last time I was visiting. My mom made it in the 3rd grade and my grandma said she thought I should have it. I’m super sentimental and I find meaning in all kinds of random stuff but this is pretty darn COOL. I love this vase!

I Purchased:

    • It’s a good day to have a good day sign – 5.99 from TJ maxx
    • Faux plant – more expensive but I loved the texture of the base – $9.99 from TJ Maxx
    • Buddha – Andy was with me when we were buying things and we thought it would be funny to have this little guy. No regrets plus he’s a cool guy and brings all kinds of positive energy up in here. $6.99 from TJ Maxx
    • Frame – I found this on clearance from Kirklands for $4.
    • Mirror – it was the perfect size and the color scheme I wanted. $29.99 from TJ maxx
    • Shelves – unfinished from Hobby lobby 16.99 each but we each used a 40% off coupon. Then purchased white spray paint. (we have a sander already or you’d need sand paper) Sanding, painting.. Voila! – about $24ish total for both shelves and paint
    • Basket – 6.99 at TJ Maxx
    • Towel rack – Hobby Lobby Find – maybe $5 most?
    • Our first dance song artwork – last but not least this was my “investment piece” of our bathroom. I plan to never ever not use this art in our home. I found an artist on Etsy which I’ll link here. She was amazing to work with and this particular piece of art cost $66. I purchased a frame Michaels during one of their major sales, it was $11.A little more about this art from Etsy. Our first dance song was “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran. His album came out just before our wedding and the first time I heard it I cried. It felt like it was written for us. We have so many songs – we’ve been together for almost 10 years now LOL but OUR song has always been “if the moon fell down tonight” by Chase coy. I didn’t feel like it was a good first song. ANYWAY – so we danced to “perfect” and every time I hear it I think about our wedding day and It makes me so happy. So I contacted Mimi and Belle and she was very prompt in her responses. I decided that instead of doing the whole song, we’d do a portion and a few weeks later I received the prettiest package in the mail! Even the packaging was beautiful. I was so impressed. She has several options on her shop as well as custom pieces! I would definitely recommend her!





And TA-DA!!! We’re done for now! It was a pretty easy fix and it made a huge change. My goal in our house was to make everything feel “cozy” and homey. Since moving out of my parents’ home I’ve never had a space that felt like “home” only places we lived for the time being.

Today I can proudly say that we not only own a house, but we have a place we ours and we’re both really proud of it.

We’re almost finished with our living room/dining room. If you all like posts like these please let me know! Xoxo, Britt

Rocks Box Subscription Review



Hi Guys! I recently posted a photo featuring Rocks box and since I had never heard of it until recently, I wanted to explain a little more about what it’s all about.

When Rocks Box reached out to me, I’ll admit that I was a little bit skeptical. I have several sentimental pieces of jewelry and I don’t often accessorize as much as I’d like to. I decided to give it a shot and I was not disappointed. I love subscriptions. I have several. This one, is a little different!

Basically, Rocks Box is a monthly jewelry subscription where you pay $21 a month in exchange for 3 pieces of designer jewelry. Designers like Kendra Scott, Kate Spade, House of Harlow (to name a few) are all included in a “try before you buy” deal. You may keep the jewelry as long as you’d like and purchase whatever you want to keep.  You may receive two boxes in a month if you’d like just depending on when you send your jewelry back.

If you were to sign up it would go a little something like this.

Step 1. You log in and create your account using my code BRITTMFOGLEXOXO with this code you get your first box free. Click here for the direct link!

Step 2. You browse an enormous selection of jewelry and add various items to your wish list.

Step 3. A stylist is assigned to you. They review your wish list and survey about your jewelry tastes and they make a selection of 3 suitable pieces.

Step 4. You receive your items right on your door step in a beautiful box. The package you receive is resealable and the return label is provided in your box.

Step 5. TRY your pieces! You can style your jewelry and wear whatever you love. Decide that you love all 3 pieces? You get a discount for purchasing all 3! If you only one to keep one that’s okay too! Your $21 monthly credit is applied towards your purchase that month!

Step 6. Send back anything you decide you don’t want to keep in the box/packaging it came in with the label provided.

This month I received 2 pairs of earrings and one necklace. I was able to wear all three pieces and incorporate them into my closet. I love the idea that I can change-up my look without necessarily investing in every single piece. This will be especially great in the coming months as “wedding season” arrives. I can wear different statement pieces to each event!

Each month you may log in and add items to your wish list as they are constantly adding new designer pieces.

I’ve teamed up with Rocks Box to offer my subscribers their first month FREE. If you aren’t happy or if you decide the subscription isn’t for you, you may easily cancel with no charge to you at all. Rocks box has an awesome customer service department that will be glad to help you with any issues or concerns.

My Link for the free first month is here!!! but you may also use the code BRITTMFOGLEXOXO
I’ve really enjoyed this subscription so far, it has allowed me to accessorize with brands I normally would buy and Invest in pieces that I know will become stapes in my closet.

If you have any questions at all please feel free to comment below or message me and I’ll do my best to answer them! And if you decide to subscribe, I’d love to know what you think! 🙂

An Honest Review of Hello Fresh – from two Newly-weds!


Hi Guys and Happy Monday! Andy and I recently tried hello fresh and we wanted to share our experience.

We have lived together for several years now and I do the majority of the cooking. I normally don’t mind it too much and I actually have found that I’m pretty good at throwing things together and coming up with a yummy result. Andy does help and will cut/dice anything I need (He won’t let me use a knife, he says it scares him LOL) but for the most part I do the grocery shopping and I’m in charge of deciding dinner. I’m also a little more particular than he is and I like to decide what I’m going to eat where as he’s okay with whatever’s on the table.

Recently I’ve been so bored of cooking the same few recipes. I’ve gotten so sick of chicken. I’m bored with Salads. I’ve been reaching for whatever is easiest.


A Friend of mine posted that she had a voucher for a free week of meals for Hello Fresh and it seemed like a great time to give it a shot. I figured if we didn’t like it we could just cancel and there would be no harm, no foul. We loved it so much we decided to continue and I wanted to write an honest review for you all to decide if it might be right for your family also!

If you’re already excited, you may click here to use my referral and receive $40 off your first box making it just $19.95 for 3 meals for 2 people.

We selected the original plan for 2 people and we elected to receive 3 meals. You may also choose 4 but we did 3. This felt like it would work better for us since Andy sometimes works late and I like to do “anything days” which Is something that my mom used to do as we were growing up haha. Basically you’re on your own to find anything you want to eat in the house for dinner. Sometimes its Cereal, sometimes it’s a salad, sometimes it’s a handful of cheese its and a glass of wine – balance people.

Screen Shot 2018-02-12 at 9.41.35 PM

Once you choose your meal plan, you may select your meals. I personally feel like there is a great selection and it does change each week. Unless you are super extremely picky, you will have options. Andy is not the biggest fan of fish, and that only took out 2 of the 10 options. Then you pick what day you’d like to receive them, we chose Monday but if Tuesday or Wednesday works better for you, you can do that too.

We selected our meals on Thursday and they arrived on our door step on Monday.


In the box, there were 3 paper bags on top of a large freezer pack with your meat below. Each paper bag includes all of the ingredients needed for each meal. You also receive recipes and nutrition information. The only items not included were olive oil, salt and pepper.



I promised an honest review so let’s get to the gist of it.

I’ll admit that I was slightly nervous. When the second meal we cooked called for an entire onion, I was really worried we were going to end up having to order a pizza instead. Also, I was worried the portions would be really small and Andy would still be hungry. But none of that was the case. We did leave the cilantro out of one of our meals (pork al mojo) but it was only a garnish in the rice so it didn’t affect the recipe much.

Each of our 3 meals were AMAZING and they involved so many ingredients we would never have purchased on our own. Not only that, but cooking this past week has felt less like a chore and more like a fun date night. On Wednesday when I knew Andy was working late, I started without him and he was genuinely disappointed.

I will say that they did take a bit longer than the recipe suggested but since we were talking and trying to figure out what the heck we were doing, it didn’t really matter. None of the recipes took over an hour.

Sometimes our weeks are so busy that we come home, go to the gym, cook, and have maybe an hour to ourselves before we need to get ready for bed so we can start it all over the next day. Cooking our Hello Fresh meals together made our night a little more enjoyable and it felt like we had more time together too even though we usually do cook together most days!

Today, Andy told me that the reason he loves these meals so much is that it levels the playing field for us. He’s not super comfortable in the kitchen (like I am) and normally we cook meals for recipes that I’ve found or that I’ve cooked before. All of these recipes are things that neither of us are familiar with and we’re trying for the first time.

For $60 you get 3 restaurant quality meals on your door step all made with organic and fresh ingredients. That’s $20 each night! Totally worth it. Each portion was filling and delicious and we couldn’t wait to pick out this week’s meals!

If all of this sounds amazing and you want to try it out for yourself, I’ve linked my referral again HERE.

I also have shared most of the process on my Instagram so you may follow me with this link and watch last week’s meals on my story. Here are some more photos of meals we’ve cooked so far. 



If I failed to answer anything please feel free to comment below! Also, if you decide to give it a shot I’d love to hear what you think!! I hope you all have a Fantastic week!!!

 XO, Britt



Hi Guys and happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend, with the super bowl yesterday I ate so much food and I thought what better way to start Monday off than to reflect on our recent experience at Tijuana Flats!

Andy and I attend a blogging event at Tijuana Flats last week and since it was my very first event, I was extremely nervous. I’m actually a little uncomfortable in new situations and I get shy meeting new people. That’s actually one of the reasons that I was drawn to blogging in the first place, I feel like I’m much better with my words on paper and I feel like blogging has already taken me so far out of my comfort zone! And I know that’s helping me to grow as a person.

ANYWAY- Back to the food. Andy and I attended the event to try the hidden menu and how to get it. I’m always trying new foods/things. If I see something new on the grocery store shelf I buy it so I was SO excited to try out this menu. And let’s be honest – I never say no to Mexican food.

These items are more easily available to Tijuana’s “Flatheads” which are what they call their email subscribers. You can click here to subscribe. They also give you a birthday gift and will let you know of any special events and coupons!!! Who doesn’t want a free appetizer? 

The restaurant is a casual setting with a great atmosphere. The murals on the walls are insanely good!! and the ceiling tiles are available for you to take home and paint for them if you like. They also have a pretty neat selection of sauces. We tried several! Here are two of my favorites:


The first Item we were served was the beefy queso. It’s AMAZING. Seriously! This is their classic queso combined with beef. Its the perfect start to any Mexican dish. and middle. and end actually.


Next came the entrees:

Double Stack Cheesy Tacos – Soft tortilla drizzled in queso, wrapped around a hard shell, choice of protein and toppings

Atom Bombs – Lightly fried tortillas stuffed with cream cheese & fresh jalapeños. Served with a side of sour cream & Smack Sweet sauce

Mexican Pizza – Fried tortilla, red sauce, melted cheese, choice of protein and toppings

Then on to dessert:
Cookie Dough Flautas – “The Original” chocolate-chip-cookie dough loaded in a flour tortilla, lightly fried and topped with powdered sugar. Served with a side of chocolate syrup. I’m actually positive that I’ve never tasted anything as delicious as this dessert. I think I died and went to heaven mid bite.


Also, Who doesn’t love churros?

Andy and I will definitely be heading back as soon as possible!! This is a great casual place to grab a bite and you won’t be disappointed!!


Have you all every tried Tijuana Flats? I’d love to hear your thoughts and your favorite menu item!!!





The Perfect Shirt Dress


Happy Tuesday friends! I hope you all had an easy day. The weekends are NEVER long enough. I’m already counting down until Friday.

I wanted to share the perfect shirt dress to have in you closet. It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with Target. I go there almost daily during my lunch hour. I feel sure that the employees recognize me. I was recently in line at a grocery store and I swore I knew the girl behind me and then it clicked.. she works at target. Yup, I am that person.

ANYWAY- I love target for so many reasons and this dress just happens to be one of them. Target’s work wear selection is really great because its price is usually pretty reasonable and the styles are very similar to designer brands.

This dress is perfect for my office because we have a more casual dress code. It would look great with flats or sandals also! I paired it with a cross body bag I picked up while on our honeymoon in Mexico and this perfect cuff bracelet from Victoria Emerson Design.

This dress will be great into spring and also in the fall months!


I’ve linked several similar options below. Have a great week babes!


Easy like Sunday Morning


Happy Monday!! This weekend went by so fast! I wore this Dress to church Sunday and I love it because its great for so many occasions. A shirt dress is a great staple piece to have in your closet because you can dress it up or down. I’ve worn this particular dress to church, with heels to a wedding, flats to work, and then drinks after work.

This weekend I wore it with brown booties, and some simple accessories. I am loving these bracelets I received from Victoria Emerson design! This particular bracelet I’m wearing is called the Silver Dorado Bracelet. I also received the Marbella which I plan to wear this week!

These pieces, like the dress, can be dressed up or down. I absolutely love them!


I’ve linked similar items below! I hope you all have the best week!

I chose the Frankie Series Zebrawood and Navy. They have an easy tool for sizing, so his watch came fitted to his wrist which was super convenient and he was thrilled he could wear it right away! Shipping was extremely quick and we were both so impressed by this packaging! The watch comes in cedar box with a cleaning cloth and solution. 

This watch is light weight and high quality! Andy received several compliments on his very first day of wearing it and he has been able to wear it in both dressy and casual settings.

Jord makes a variety of Mens and Womens watches in several styles and wood types. And did I mention they will also engrave? This is such a great gift idea. I would highly recommend Jord to anyone!

Sunday Funday


Hi Guys and Happy Sunday!

Today Andy and I decided to go on a lunch date and try out a restaurant we hadn’t been to. We went to Grill Marks and got the “Ultimate” Bloody Mary’s and a burger and fries to share. We never go on dates anymore so this was a fun treat!

Lately its been so cold in Columbia I’m having a hard time dressing warm and stylish. Fortunately I was able to get at least one photo running to the car. For our date, I wore a pair of my favorite jeans, an oversized sweater and some booties and I was frozen. It’s never this cold in Columbia and I don’t have many options for 28 degree weather! LOL! However, fortunately South Carolina weather never stays the same for very long.

Anyway, I hope you all had a great weekend. I’ve linked all of the outfit details below! I’ve also included several similar options in case your size is not available.

I’ve linked the sweater here


I hope you all have an easy week!

A Year in Review – 2017

This week I’ve been setting new goals and writing out a schedule of new blog posts for the next coming weeks and I can’t help but think about all of the amazing things that have happened over the past year.

2017 brought about so many changes in my life and I could not have imagined I’d be where I am today.

  • We purchased a house in December of 2016 and rang in the new year in our new home.
  • We spent the first few months planning our wedding and making so many fun memories.
  • I met my favorite person on this planet- Tim Tebow.
  • We had our joint bridal shower.
  • We celebrated our bachelor/bachelorette parties
  • We got MARRIED
  • We honeymooned in Cancun – see my review here
  • We watched several friends get married! and spent a lot of time in the sun
  • We went to Disney (Andy’s first time)
  • I started my blogging journey
  • AND These were our first holidays as husband and wife and we were so happy to start new traditions together!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In 2017 I learned a few lessons also.

I started this blog because I wanted to have a creative outlet to share all the things I love. I’ve always loved fashion, running, cooking, trying new things and writing. I admire so many influencers on instagram and I decided to put myself out there. I wanted it to happen immediately but I’ve been patient trying to piece together a website and blog I can be proud of.

Starting this blog has taught me that not everyone is going to like me and that is OKAY. People I thought were my friends were unsupportive. “Friends” who make fun of you for putting yourself out there are not your friends. For the first several weeks I was so nervous to make a post or to “share” links on Facebook or to even mention my blog in general. I have slowly learned that its okay if you do not like the outfit I post or the blog I share. There is no place in my life for negativity and I have to be myself!! 2017 taught me to surround myself with all the things and people who make me happy and Since October I have done just that.

2018 is so full of opportunity and I’m so excited to see what it brings!
