Opening up for Guest Posts

Would you be interested in writing a guest post for Southern Glamourista? If so, I would love to have you!   Writing a guest post on someone else's blog definitely has it can really get your blog out there to a new audience and it could potentially help you gain new followers for your own blog!
Here are a few guidelines I have came up with:
1. It has to be original, please do not copy someone else's work. That's not very nice!
2. If you have a picture included in the post and you did not take the picture yourself, make sure you put the source of the picture in the post.
3. It has to be makeup, beauty, or fashion related.
If this is something you would be interested in, send me an email at:

Review: St Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Moisturizer


I have been using St Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Moisturizer (whew! what a name!) for a little over a month now. I found out about it from Doctor Oz a couple of months ago. He highly recommended it and if Dr. Oz says it's good..then it has to be good right?! So I had to get it and try to see if my Dr. Oz (I might have a tiny crush on him) was right.
Product Claims:
This moisturizer, with collagen elastin proteins, hydrates for visibly softer, smoother skin.
My thoughts:
I have really enjoyed this moisturizer. My skin feels very hydrated and soft since I started using this. It has a very soft scent, but it's not overpowering. It is very lightweight and absorbs quickly into your skin. I have very sensitive skin and this lotion has not caused any breakouts. The tub it comes in is huge, so it will definitely last a while! Even though I am in my twenties and don't have wrinkles yet (besides my laugh lines and the crinkles around my eyes) it's always good to start thinking about the future and trying to prevent wrinkles from even starting. I actually read somewhere, can't remember where, but that it's best to start using wrinkle cream in your early twenties to stop wrinkles from even starting.
Besides being 100% natural, the best part about this lotion is the price. I got mine at Walgreens for $5.29!! What other moisturizer is this good and has a price that low?!! I can't think of any, can you?
To sum it all up:
100% Natural
Very Hydrating
Have you tried using any product from
the St. Ives line?

Hello Fall/ Autumn Tag

picture from Sabina's Blog
Hey everybody! I hope y'all have had a great weekend so far! I was tagged a little while back from one of the sweetest girls, Sabina from Beauty Blogs and More, to do the Hello Fall/Autumn Tag. Thank you so much Sabina! 

1. It's finally Fall/Autumn what are you most looking forward to this season?
Well, the first thing I think about when I hear the word "Fall" is FOOTBALL! I absolutely love College Football! I am a huge Florida Gators fan! I also always look forward to wearing some boots, skinny jeans, and a nice scarf! Fall is definitely my favorite season. I love when the leaves change colors! Tennessee is so beautiful in the Fall.
2. What Fall item in your closet are you most excited to pull out?
My boots and scarves!!
3. Since Halloween is the first holiday to celebrate we all get treated with a horror movie marathon all month long..What is your favorite scary movie to watch?
Ahh! I am a big ol' baby! I can't handle watching scary movies anymore. When I was younger I could watch them all the time, but for some reason the past couple of years I can't even watch the previews for scary movies without being terrified!
4. What's your favorite fall treat?
Anything with pumpin in it! Pumpkin pie, pumpkin poptarts, pumpkin bread, pumpkin spice latte...I could go on and on... :) 
5. Now that summer is finally over, what will you miss about it?
Probably the cookouts and just eating dinner on our back deck.  This was our first Summer at our new house and we had such a great time enjoying our back deck wth friends and family!

6. What Makeup/Beauty Products do you like for Fall?
Wearing darker colors for my nail polish, blush, and lipstick.

7. What have you recently bought in preparation for the up coming season?

Fall scented candles and soap for my house, deep red nail polishes, and a few scarves! I need to do some more shopping though!! ;)

8. Have you been Trick or Treating?

I go with my sister to take my neice and nephew, but I have actually been trick or treating myself in a LONG time! I am too old for that! :(
9. Name the first five things that come to your mind when you think of Fall?

Leaves Changing
Pumpkin scented/flavored goodies
10. What is your favorite season and why?
Fall! I just love everything about it!
I Tag ALL of you!
Make sure you let me know if you do the tag because I would love to check it out and read your answers!
Happy Fall!

Signed, Sealed, Delivered..I'm Yours!

I hope you all had a great Wednesday! My day was wonderful because two years ago today I married the man of my dreams! Unfortunately, my husband and I weren't able to do anything special to celebrate our anniversary today since we both had to work and wasn't able to take the day off. This weekend we will definitely celebrate though!
I thought I would do more of a personal post yesterday and today to let you get to know me a little bit better. I posted a few pictures of our Engagement Pictures yesterday, if you would like to see them click HERE. Today I wanted to give you a sneak peek of Our Wedding Day.
