"Given the fact that I can navigate icy roads in 4 inch heels, I'm fairly confident I can conquer the world today" < My mantra lately, as we've been getting quite a bit of snow in these parts. Still, #GIRLBOSS or not, there's something to be said for NOT breaking an ankle on the way to work. Enter these black riding boots.

I've been on the hunt for some budget-friendly boots for quite some time. Let's face it, with a shopping problem hobby like I have, it's nice to stock up on pieces that don't break the bank, and these fit the bill. Did I mention they are on sale for under $50?! That's just one of the many boots on sale right now at DSW, so be sure to check them all out.

GLO Minerals

One of my new year's resolutions was to take better care of my skin. I'm off to a pretty good start thanks to my new skin care routine (more on that in another post) and my new makeup routine by GLO Minerals.

If you haven't heard of GLO Minerals, they're a mineral makeup company whose system is designed for skincare professionals - in other words, you know its good! The foundation gives a beautiful sheer and flawless cover that's not greasy at all. Best of all, it's packed full of Vitamins A, C, E and Green Tea Extract, complimented by a special formulated light-diffusing diamond powder. Need I say more?! #DiamondsAreAGirlsBestFriend 

A drop of this powerful foundation goes a long way, especially when used with their flat top kabuki brush which was created to make sure little of the product goes to waste. The combo really gives me the softest, fullest coverage!

I'm particularly crazy about the blush, which is super pigmented, so you only have to use a touch! I'm also loving this lip gloss (in Nude). It's such a great everyday color and isn't sticky at all, as you know most lip glosses can be. 

It's safe to say I've found my new makeup routine, and if you're looking to switch yours up, GLO Minerals is offering 15% off the entire order (MSRP only) to all of my readers! Use promo code EATPRAYWEARLOVE15 at check out. And, if you're not sure where to find a local retailer, give them a call at 1-800-232-0398

A big congratulations is also in order for Sarah Johnson, who won the giveaway for these G O R G E O U S Shira Melody earrings! Thanks to all who entered!

DSW Shoe Lovers: The Wedge Bootie

"I found you, Ms. New Bootie" < My thoughts when I first saw these gorgeous Aldo wedge booties at DSW. But really, can you blame me? They've got me bootie, bootie, bootie, bootie rockin' everywhere.
A girl can never have too may shoes, and a Colorado-girl can never have too many booties! The weather here is ever changing and in the Fall/Winter/Spring months, my tootsies have got to stay protected! These Aldo wedge booties from DSW are the perfect all-season bootie to carry me through the non-toe-baring months. I just love the mixed leathers and the chic touch of reptile detailing on the heel make for a stylish transition from day-to-night.

As I mentioned the other day on Instagram, I'm obsessed with my new earrings from Anjolee. Garnet is my birthstone, and with birthday celebrations lined up til the end of January, it really might as well be my birth-month, and these gorgeous earrings pair perfectly for all the celebratory occasions.

When Anjolee first contacted me about doing a product review, I was thrilled at the chance to receive a pair of their gorgeous diamond studs. With my birthday in mind though, I asked if they could throw my birthstone in the center of the setting and they agreed. I'm so thrilled with how it turned out!

If you haven't heard of Anjolee, let me tell you a little bit about them. They're a high end diamond jewelry manufacturer and retailer. And, as evidenced by the earrings above, all of their jewelry is completely customizable! You can take any of their designs, and add your own personal touch to make it a unique piece all your own. I love that! Check out their selection of diamond studs, and more, and let me know what you think. 

By the way, stay tuned for an exciting giveaway tomorrow - and don't forget about the one I have going on here.
