This would be a great outfit to wear for Thanksgiving! I’m not very good when it comes to pattern mixing like this. So far I haven’t been bold enough to mix stripes and florals together. One day I’m going to do it though.

A black skirt is always slimming! This plus size outfit has so many cute touches, I love the pops of coral in it! The pearl headband from Lilla Rose is the headband I use the most often. It just goes with everything!

Black Friday Specials

Using a Beauty Blender For Perfect Foundation!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

The secret to perfect foundation! The Beauty Blender creates a perfect, smooth makeup experience!

After wanting a Beauty Blender for awhile now, I recently ordered one to finally try and fell in love with it!

If you haven’t heard of the Beauty Blender, it’s basically a sponge. But it’s a special sponge that applies liquid foundation to be smooth and natural looking. No streaking or splotchy makeup when you use the Beauty Blender!

I read many different reviews on these makeup sponges. You can get cheaper sponges at places like Ross or Marshalls, but every single review I’ve read say they don’t work as well. If you want to try one, get the real deal and stick to the name brand sponge!

So how does it work?

First you wet the sponge and squeeze it. I like to dry it on a towel as well. It needs to be damp, but not very wet at all.

Then I put some foundation on my hand, and dab the Beauty Blender into the foundation.

Next I dab the Beauty Blender onto my face. Do not apply it like a brush with strokes! You just do little dabs.

The Beauty Blender is shaped like an egg. You use the larger round part to apply the foundation over the main parts of your face, and use the smaller part to apply foundation under your eyes.

Beauty Blender Sponge applies perfect, streak free makeup!

Here are some before and after pictures!

And an after picture with makeup! I used L’BRI foundation (the lightest color they have, a #1) and then used the wet/dry foundation over that.

After I applied makeup using the Beauty Blender Sponge!

Ta-da! :) I like a natural look and the Beauty Blender helps achieve that!

You can see a video I did on Periscope (Yes! I’m on Periscope as Caroline Allen) showing an actual tutorial on using the Beauty Blender.

Here are some links of the products I mention in this post!

The Beauty Blender can be found on Amazon.

The foundation I use and love is from L’BRI Pure and Natural. This foundation is vitamin enriched Aloe-based foundation, which leaves the skin with a soft, creamy finish.

Finding modest plus size clothes is hard. I’ve heard many women say that they can’t wear skirts or dresses because it’s just so hard. I think it definitely is harder, but it’s not impossible!

This entire outfit can be found at Target! So don’t despair and say you can’t ever find anything! If you want a higher cut cami, this Full Length layering shell or the Halftees Tank comes up higher.

Plaid shirts are very popular this year. I’m seeing them everywhere and there are many ways to style them. This is a good example of how to style it in a feminine way. The cardigan looks so warm and comfy!

Not every outfit has to be amazing. I say that because I’ve been discouraged with my non-amazing outfits lately. Mornings are spent grabbing something quickly to either get out my room and let the baby sleep, or to quickly get dressed because she is crying (which she does a lot if I’m not holding her!).

It’s a season of life and the reasons behind those blah wardrobe days are so worth it! I’d rather invest in a baby that is pretty needy for her mama than have beautiful outfits everyday.

This outfit is a good one for quickly grabbing and getting dressed on busy mornings!

Don’t forget about our mystery sale going on at Deborah & Co. I hope you have a great weekend!

Five Must Have Fall Wardrobe Items!

Five Must Have Fall Wardrobe Items!

The weather is slowly turning more chilly now that November has come. I’m honestly ready for long sleeves. Trying to juggle two seasons of clothing in a small closet can be frustrating! I love winter clothes, probably because it’s so easy to be modest and and find cute clothes at the same time!

Here are five must have fall items.

  1. Quilted Vest ~ Ok I have to admit. This is the one item on the list I don’t actually own! I’m hoping to get one soon though. If you look on Pinterest there are so many cute outfits with vests, and they can be a great way to stay warm if you don’t need an actual coat.
  2. Boots ~ An absolute must! It’s so easy to style long skirts in the winter if you wear boots. Tights or leggings can be hidden with long skirts, or actually look ok with a knee length skirt. You will wear these often, so make sure you find a pair of boots that are comfortable.
  3. Leggings ~ The secret (or not so secret!) way to wear skirts in the wintertime. Warm leggings are essential, the only way to stay warm in the wintertime is by layering.
  4. Denim Jacket ~ Wear over a maxi dress, use a cami underneath and wear with a skirt, or wear a nice long sleeve shirt where you can easily take the jacket on and off as needed. There are so many different uses for a denim jacket!
  5. Warm Socks ~ I do not like cold feet in the wintertime! Wool socks are not only warm, they can be comfortable to wear plus look cute with different designs! I’ve seen our Costco store have some a good selection of socks recently.

There you have it! I’d love to know if you have these 5 items in your wardrobe!

I’ve been excited about a brand new sale that we put together for Deborah & Co. It’s a mystery sale and we have never done anything like it before!

Deborah & Co. Mystery Sale ~ Order $75 worth of items and receive a free skirt, shirt, scarf, etc. in your order! It's a mystery what will come!

This will be so much fun sending out these packages! It’s only available today through Saturday though!
