Friday “Beauty” Favorites

Friday is finally here! Naturally, this day of the week makes us feel extra happy. It reminds us that it’s time to unwind and truly enjoy the things that we love.

Today, I’m starting what I’d like to call the Friday “Beauty” Favorites series where I share images and things that I’ve come across on other blogs, Pinterest (I’m obsessed) and throughout my day-to-day routine that inspire me.

In the spirit of my blog update yesterday, this is also a great preview of what you can expect on future posts. Beautiful decor, fashion, products and so much more.

This past January, I celebrated a milestone birthday so I wanted to wear something that was a bit unique, yet still me. Now I’m not sure how many of you are Sex and The City fans, but I find myself, all too often, imagining that I’m typing away (sans a cigarette and column) things that I love to share. It’s undeniable that I love Carrie Bradshaw! So much so, that I decided to pull together a Carrie Bradshaw inspired ensemble for my birthday.

I changed it up a bit with a blush tulle skirt instead of the green color she donned in an episode where she was in Paris. I then decided to pair this with a polka dot top (I love polka dots), along with a statement necklace. And we can’t forget the shoes! Sorry, these are not Manolo Blahniks, but I hope Carrie wasn’t disappointed in my selection.

The main piece of my outfit was definitely the tulle skirt. I felt amazing in that skirt – feminine, sexy and confident. My pearl statement necklace was a classic touch.

What do you guys think of tulle skirts?

Happy Friday guys!

The end of the week is always greeted with extra smiles as we all wind down and welcome the weekend. I’m hoping that what I’m about to say next will make your cheeks hurt from excessive smiling. I feel like beauty not only encompasses makeup, hair and healthy living, but it also comes from enjoying life and doing what makes us happy. That’s why I’m thrilled to announce that Bashful Beauty Blog is now officially a lifestyle blog. In addition to covering topics about natural/organic makeup and curly hair, I’ll cover fashion, books, travels, my favorite foods and much more. We’re surrounded by beauty and I want to share what I feel is beautiful with you in every aspect.

I consider this a sneak peak of what’s to come. Yesterday I visited a local H&M after work to pick up some new winter accessories pictured above. Who says you can’t have fun with affordable fashion and bring some color into the winter season? These aren’t all available on the H&M site, but visit your local store if you love any of these as much as I do.

What are you favorite winter accessories?
