October Instagram Challenge!

Hey guys! I'm super excited to announce a fun Instagram challenge I've planned for October! I've done these before for February and July, and since October is my favorite month of the year I thought it'd be perfect for a new photo-a-day challenge. Sharing a themed photo every day is my favorite way to capture the mood and memories of a certain month or season. I'd like to invite all of you to join me on October 1st and share your photos using the #MLAutumnChallenge hashtag (and don't forget to follow me @mandyleighblog!) I'll be checking the tag daily and sharing my favorites from your photos here and on Instagram every Sunday, so don't forget to tag them!

If you're joining in the photo challenge, feel free to share the above photo on your blog or Instagram so that more people can find out about it and join in on the fun. The more, the better! :) xoxo Mandy

5 Tips For Blogging Everyday

I remember making the change a few years ago from blogging once or twice a week to blogging every day. I felt that I was at that point in my blogging career where I was ready to make the commitment, but boy was I terrified. Blogging every single day was a pretty intimidating challenge...I never would've imagined I'd be blogging 10 times a week just a couple years later. ^_^

Today I'm sharing my 5 tips for blogging everyday. If you've decided to make the commitment to becoming a daily blogger, check out the tips below!

The Lazy Girl's Guide To Nighttime Skincare

Skincare is undoubtedly one of the most important parts of any beauty routine. If you don't wash your face morning and night, your pores will get clogged up with dirt, excess oils, and makeup, which will lead to major breakouts and blotchy skin. If you're anything like me though, by the time you're getting ready for bed, you're super lazy tired and don't feel like going through all of the steps to remove your makeup, wash, tone, moisturize, etc. But we're supposed to get our faces clean before bed, right? Right. So, I've created the perfect compromise. I present to you The Lazy Girl's Guide To Nighttime Skincare!

Top 10 Nail Polish Favorites For Fall

With the arrival of fall, I have put away my brightly colored nail polishes and have eagerly pulled my darker, moodier shades to the front. I like opting for darker colors and muted neutrals in the autumn and winter seasons. They tend to go nicely with all of my outfits, plus they give me a break from all of the crazy colors from summer. I've got 10 polishes that are my favorites for this season, from nudes and purples to mossy greens, wines, and blacks. There's even the prettiest rose gold metallic polish in the history of ever. Seriously. ^_^

My Everyday Brushes

I recently wrote a post about the 10 makeup brushes that every gal needs, and I thought I would share which brushes I use every day. I have a decent collection of makeup brushes, but of course I don't need to use all of them every single day. Over the past year I've narrowed it down to a handful of brushes that are a must for my daily routine.

Let's Get Naked

Okay, well not really...let's get Urban Decay Naked, I mean! ;) Over the years, I have tried several different eye shadows and eye palettes, and I've found that Urban Decay has the best quality palettes I've ever used. They're long-lasting, extremely pigmented, creamy and easy to blend, the packaging is very durable and good for travel, the colors are colors you can actually wear every day...the list of pros goes on and on!

Pumpkin Spice Wishlist

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Hi friends! I'm back! Last week was a lovely break, but I am so glad to be back to work here on my blog. I've missed y'all! :) Autumn has arrived here in the midwest, and I couldn't be happier. We've had the windows open every day for the past week to let in the cool fall air. It's been lovely! I've been living in plaid button downs and leggings, and watching scary movies late at night. I love this time of year!
