WHAT I WORE: A Romper for IT Cosmetics!Tuesday, May 19, 2015
Last weekend, I had a great time exploring a "new to me" makeup brand called IT Cosmetics. It was due to their generosity that I was inspired to take better care of my makeup and beauty products (see DIY post here)! It all started on Friday night, when their PR team invited a select group of bloggers to come have dinner with them and they're founder Jamie Kern Lima. We met the team at Pass & Provisions in the Montrose area of Houston. This was my first time dining there and I really loved the ambiance of the restaurant! It's apparently two restaurants in one; Pass is for casual dining, while Provisions is the fancy side! We were escorted upstairs to a private dining space that was decorated to the nines with flowers, and makeup brushes! We mingled and talked about blogs and beauty all night! IT Cosmetics gifted us with a fabulous goodie bag full of makeup and brushes and the team was sooooo nice! I really appreciated them taking the time to meet with some Houston bloggers while they were in town! It was a great evening! To read all about our night out with IT Cosmetics, head over to my gal pal, Nikki Kestenbaum's blog, for a great recap full of gorgeous photos. Here's a sneak peek below:

IT Cosmetics was in town because the team was scheduled to host a personal appearance with Jamie at Ulta Beauty in River Oaks, the next day. I definitely couldn't miss the chance to have my makeup done by our gracious hosts from the night before! I headed to the event about mid-day on Saturday and ran into fellow bloggers Faith and Nikki. I quickly swiped up a seat to have my makeup done, and my makeup artist did such a great job!! I told her I wanted a bold look, and bold she did. Honestly you couldn't tell me nothin, after my face was done! After the event at Ulta, Nikki, Faith and I headed to Del Frisco's Grille for lunch and snapped some photos!

THAT BLUE THO! I wish I was skilled enough to recreate this!

I love a pop of color against black. Almost any color will work, since black goes with everything, but I LOVE red and black. It's second to my favorite color combination of black, white and red! These are one of my favorite pairs of sandals! They're gladiator style, and Nine West sent them to me last year. They're a little high, so I don't wear them to events where I may have to stand for a long time!
