Mini Beauty Haul

Hello Lovelies!

Earlier in the week, my sister and I paid a visit to a couple drug stores. She grabbed a Lisa Frank clipboard/coloring set (I'm pretty sure I had something similar when I was her age) and I picked up a few beauty supplies.
My attempted artistic shot. 
Julie G Nail Polish in Gelato In Venice : I was about to pick up Essie's Mint Candy Apple when this little bottle caught my eye. It was half the price of Essie nail polish, so I sort of figured it would also be half the quality, but, so far, I'm loving it!

C. Booth Buttercream Body Souffle : Let's just say this smells like heaven, and if I didn't know better, I'd say it was a tub of buttercream frosting! Not only does it smell like heaven, but it also feels like heaven. I think I'm in love.

Essie Nail Polish in Adore-a-Ball : Let's be real, Essie is fabulous. I haven't found a nail polish of theirs that I haven't liked. Adore-a-Ball is no exception, it's the perfect light-light pink (think french manicure pink) for when you're not feeling like a colored nail, but also don't want them naked!

Revlon CustomEyes Shadow & Liner in Gold Spun : The palette includes a shimmery black (meant to be the liner - but I'm not too big on powder-as-a-liner), a shimmery gold, a matte light brown, a shimmery white, and a shimmery dark brown. I haven't actually tried this on my eyes yet, but I did swipe the shades on my wrist and found that they're not super pigmented. However, I think it should be a nice little palette to pop in my purse.

Have you tried any of these products before? What do you think?

Hello lovelies!

Lots of my Facebook friends have been sharing this video over the past week. I thought it mind be worth a watch, and let me tell you, it certainly was!
According to Dove, only 4% of women worldwide consider themselves beautiful. ONLY FOUR PERCENT. But guess what! You ARE beautiful.

Take a couple minutes out of your day and hit 'play.' I can promise you'll be glad you did.

Hello lovelies,
It's been a month since I started blogging, and to commemorate this joyous occasion, I thought I'd tell you a little bit about myself!
So, here are 5 facts about me!

1. I have a sister named Emma. We like to take PhotoBooth pictures.

2. I play piano. I've been playing for about four years.

3. I'm home schooled and in my junior year. Yes, I actually do schoolwork {but usually on the couch. with a cup of tea}.

4. I've read the entire Hunger Games Trilogy three times.

5. I went to Disney World for the first time this year.

Alrighty, hope you got to know me a little better! Now it's your turn, leave me a fact about you in the comments!

Hello lovelies!
It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood today {cue Mr. Rodger's Neighborhood theme song} and actually felt a bit like spring! Hurray!
I saw The Host today with some friends. I had pretty high expectations because I really enjoyed the book, but sadly the movie wasn't my favorite. I felt like they went through the storyline so quickly and everything happened all at once.

Anyways, here's what I wore! It wasn't quite warm enough to go without a jacket, but I really loved the sleeves on my top so I froze for most of the day! ;)

{Jacket - Hollister}
{Perplum Top - Rue21}
{Pants - Walmart (can you believe it?!)}
{Leopard Flats - TJ MAXX}

{Bag - Rue21}

{Necklace - Claire's}
I think this bag will become a staple in my spring/summer wardrobe! What's your favorite spring outfit?

Hello lovelies!
In typical Abigail fashion, I'm wishing you a happy Easter a couple days late (or maybe early for next year, hmm?). I hope your day was fabulous - mine sure was!

My family headed down to my Dad's side for the weekend which is always a good time. My Grandmother fills and hides eggs for all of us grandkids, no matter how old we are, and it never ceases to be the highlight of my Easter!  I got to see some cousins and aunts and uncles I hadn't seen in ages and just basically had tons of fun!
So, much fun that there really wasn't any time to take photos of my outfit, and I thought it was rather blog-worthy.
But thankfully, during the hunt, my Dad snapped some photos so you can get a peak at what I wore.

{Blazer - Kohls}
{Black Button Up Dress (tucked in as shirt) - TJ MAXX}
{Coral Skirt - American Eagle}
{Statement Necklace - Rue 21}
{Leopard Flats - TJ MAXX}
Well, I hope you enjoyed those rather awkward pictures! What are your favorite Easter traditions?
