Fall Fashion: Get The Look with Reef

Fall has officially hit Oregon with the cool sunny days and very chilly nights. Perusing my closet it seems to be full of summer dresses and sandals and I am in need of a few new pieces. Have you started the Fall season like me with a serious lack of cute and comfortable cool weather footwear options?

One major hole in my wardrobe right now is a good pair of slip on’s and a pair of everyday boots. I have been wanting a pair of grey boots and have been searching for a nice pair but so far my search hasn’t yielded either the quality or style I want.  After checking out I have found a few items that perfectly fit what I had envisioned.


I fell in love at first sight with these Reef High Desert boots. The grey color is exactly what I have been looking for, and I love the details on the boot. They are made for walking with a low heel and rubber outsole not to mention a mattress-inspired quilted footbed. And after a lot of boot shopping I am always shocked how expensive boots can be that aren’t even real leather. The Reef High Dessert is a made from a beautiful suede leather and they are still under $150!

Love the fun casual look of the Reef Tropic solid slip on shoes. They would be great for any Fall look and both the black and bright pink colors are really cute. Reef makes their shoes to be as functional as they are cute, with quilted foam footbeds a heel patch and elastic back they make sure your feet will feel good even after a full day out on the town.

GlamPact: All In One Compact

IMG_20131021_113035 (1)

As a full time working mom of three kids I am always looking for ways to simply my life. Wine glass? No thanks lets save a step and drink right from the bottle.

When it comes to palettes there are many to love but there is always one issue the small compacts don’t have everything you need and the ones with everything are way to big to use on the go. The makers of GlamPact have come up with the perfect purse sized all in one compact.

This compact includes top of the line makeup with all kinds of great ingredients to improve the look and quality of your skin while you wear it. I found the whole range of products was easy to apply, they all feel really silky smooth going on and the best part the colors stay true all day long.

Such a great little compact, this would make a great gift for that hard to shop for friend or the perfect addition to your gym or travel bag.


The only makeup I am wearing in this photo (sans mascara) is from my GlamPact. I went for a lighter eye look with the soft grey and cream colors. I love how smooth the CC pressed powder leaves my skin and it really evens out my skin tone without looking overly made up.
