Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!
This week on VIP Beauty Tues, I have a fabulous makeup tutorial to share with y’all! So, come on fabulouses, and join me in the beauty seat at Saks Fifth Avenue Birmingham as makeup specialist Kimberly Crawford gives me the ultimate prom makeover with Trish McEvoy cosmetics.
I love the Trish McEvoy line because it is great for sensitive skin, and the line has a wide variety of colors and products to fit anyone’s fancy! My mom is a huge fan of the Trish McEvoy Planner because it is a Trapper Keeper for all her makeup needs. She recently invested in the Power of Makeup Planner Collection Azure and is totally in love with the colors and the ease–but let’s face it…it is really because it comes in a pouch. My mom loves putting things in zipper pouches. Anyway…the Trish McEvoy mascara is a miracle worker for ALL types of eyelashes, and when it comes time to wash it off at the end of the day…it’s amazingly simple. Well, Abby, how does it wash off? Y’all will have to watch the video below to find out…*wink*

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to VIP Home!
I have received several fan emails lately about my “blogging space,” and I am so glad that y’all sent me those emails because it inspired me to write this post. On today’s blog, I am going to share with y’all the before, during, and after of the VIP “blogging headquarters” aka my office *big smile*
To preface, I must inform y’all that I have always adored “roof-top rooms” also called attic rooms or bonus spaces. I am not sure why I find these rooms so awesome…perhaps it is from watching way too much Drake and Josh as a kid–you have to admit that their bedroom was pretty fabulous. Back to my office *wink*– I immediately fell in love with the attic room because I saw the incredible potential that it possessed, and I knew that with a little hard work and some time…and a little money *wink*…it would be the perfect blogging space.
Before it’s face-lift, the roof-top room was merely a glorified storage closet. Oh, readers…it was a DIY project gone terribly, terribly wrong. Just because Pinterest says you can DIY your attic space in 10 easy steps doesn’t always mean one should or that it is truly easy…DIYing is not for the faint of heart…I digress….Where was I? Oh, yes. The first time I saw this room it reminded me of an episode of Renovation Realities on the DIY Network. Mixed-matched carpet patches tacked to the floor, crooked sheetrock (some joints taped and some not…I just assumed they ran out of tape and did not think it was important), and floppy closet doors that popped off their tracks if you tried to open them…Phew…I am having nightmares again just thinking about it. Now, don’t fret because it did not take long to get this diamond in the rough in VIP condition *wink*
I did a lot of the renovation myself–the designing, the painting, the assembling of the cube shelves, and even laying the floors; however, my dad gave me detailed instructions and guided me through the process. I had him on speed-dial *wink* I stubbed my fingers a lot, said some pretty nasty things (but it’s okay because Jesus and I worked it out), and put my seventh grade math skills to the test. After just a couple of weeks of dedicated labor, I created a fabulous blogging headquarters–Plus, I feel pretty awesome about my skills knowing that I have a DIY success and not a DIY fail :)
Now, enjoy the before, during, and after photos of the VIP Blogging Headquarters *wink*
Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog for the very first outfit of the VIP March Madness outfit series! Yay!
I have been living in Alabama for a little over a year, and I have yet to accomplish the things on my Birmingham Bucket List. The first thing on my BBL was Vulcan Park, which is one of Birmingham’s most popular tourist attractions. I have been to Vulcan for parties and events, but never as a tourist. Let me tell y’all–I truly enjoyed the experience of playing tourist in my own town and being at Vulcan. Oh, it is so gorgeous! Overlooking The Magic City from the tower at Vulcan is exciting, scary, and peaceful all at the same time! Now that I have visited Vulcan during the day…I am putting “Visit Vulcan at Night” on my BBL list because I so desperately want to overlook the Birmingham skyline when it is all lit up at night. :)
My, My…what a big foot you have*wink*
Casual selfie at Vulcan with the Birmingham skyline in the background. Perfection.
